Hello and Welcome to my treasured little place in the FanQuarter! T'was update time for the bio once again! I am on summer vacation at present home in Colorado, eagerly awaiting the commencement of the fall term of '01 so that I may return to my haven of UNH (The University of New Hampshire). I'll be junior this coming year and I have finally declared myself as a History Major. Paperwork all put through finally! Next year I'll be taking three history classes (History of the Middle East, Women in American History, and 20th Century America) as well as my first year of Japanese! To answer the puzzled looks (such as the ones I recieved from my parents when I announced my choice in class) I shall explain this choice. My best reason is thus - Once I graduate from college and have attained my BA in History and my teaching certificate I intend to get myself into the DODDs(Department of Defense Dependants) program and teach overseas in Japan. Yakoda AFB looks best at present ^_^. Why you may ask... well I've been a military brat (Go Air Force!) My entire nineteen (nearly twenty!) years of life on this plane of existance and I;ve lived in lots of different places (4 years in Germany, 3 in England, 22 months in Alaska, 2 years in Hawaii... and it goes on.) But the more places I visit the more aware I become of all the places I have still not been. I want to travel with a passion. The DODDs teaching program would let me do just that. it's really the ideal way to go for me! Okay... heh and the other reason for Japanese.... I'm an anime fan! A big one, it was my friends fault... she tied my Anne Rice vampire craze into and anime one through the immortal Vampire Hunter D. For which I am immensely grateful. I now have a hard drive FILLED with anime pictures, anime music videos, anime mp3s, and a million anime bookmarks. And so to D I give thanks for opening my eyes to the wonderful world of anime! As evidenced by this craze for anime I am now the Vice President of the UNH Anime Club. Quite closely tied to the anime club is WildCat Knights, the UNH Role Playing Game Club. Of which I am now the not-so-illustrious president. With D as my VP (sensing a trend here?). D and I are also president and vice president of UNH by Night... the LARP club at UNH. We keep pretty busy. Other than those things to keep me busy... as if that wasn't enough.... I work. Over the summer I am working for the 98th Flying Training Squadron here at the USAF Academy, the parachute jumpers. What little time I end up with left I devote to writing, reading, and anime. And now that I've thouroughly convinced you that I am insane... ^_^ (If I haven't I shall endeavor to do so in the future.

Valirion

This poem was written for my character Valirion. You can read (part of) his story on the main page. It is called End of The Line

The Pressures on the Senna

Kailen, the Prince of the Karai Mishra (my race of Desert Elves), has a pretty bad day. Warning: Contains Shounen Ai ^_^

End of The Line

The nearly finished story of Valirion of Inara. A kind soul, old wounds that still bleed, hidden behind a facade of anger and distance. A spirit bent on vengance and a child's tears. A strange combination to say the least... ((Update March 6th Wrote a few new pages... some exploration into childhood... fight scene... I really need feedback on that section! ^_^ Hope You enjoy it. Once again more still on the way!)) {Update! 05-09-01 I added a link to Valirion's family tree. Finally got it worked out. It took a while to make so check it out Val's Family Tree

Twins

Etienne and Michel, twins, born into nobility in France just before the Revolution, barely escaped with their lives when their family estate was laid seige to and burned to the ground. They look about 12 years old and are identical twins.

Death

cliche perhaps... I wrote this because I was so upset and angry that I was shaking even when I stood still... I don't know what it is really...

Blood and Tears

This is the story of my most beloved character, Tristan. I've had to split this into two parts because it was too big for elfwood to handle as one. It's got around... 40 pages up here now. I've written 85 so far... BUT... the second half is all fragments and its not ready for reading cause it makes sense only to me who has the master plan in her crowded brain. Please read and leave me comments!! I need the feedback [Update!! 05-09-01 I've added this link. I finally wrote out Tristan's family tree!! ^_^ Took me quite a while to write as well! check it out Tristan's family Tree My friend Amanda drew this picture of Tristan for me! Check it out!! Thanks also go out to Rae for the help in editing the section that was making me pull my hair out!

Something About Him

Tristan has a good friend over at his tavern and a few serious relections are gathered there in his abscence. (A short piece on lost love and learning to live again.)

The Spazz Saga

Please allow me to introduce my Muse...

Tristan

This was written for Tristan. A vampire aged many years, carrying many hidden scars, a strong face to the world, keeping silent and inner struggle for sanity and survival.

Trapped

This is the most frigtening thing I have put up here. I don't think I can write poetry at all. But this was one attempt.

Cinderella, a Fractured Faery Tale

FINALLY IT IS FINISHED!!!! Yep due to popular demand I have finally finished the faery tale! I hope everyone enjoys reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it! Okies before you read this I must preface it with some credit to the insane errr inspired person who i got the idea from Laura Mir Wilson wrote one first with all her characters. You gotta go read it in her Wyvern's Library Heheh its sooo funny You will laugh!! And well... if you don't.... check yer pulse ya might be dead! Anyway on to my story!

Encounter in the Moonlight

A woman runs into a strange figure under the moon at night in the silence of the midnight in the forest,(A rather short piece, could possibly turn into something... we shall see... depends on the response I get I guess. ^_^)
