“If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them."
--Henry David Thoreau
"If the reason you breathe is the goal that you see, then you'll never be satisfied. Cause what's the reward when perfection is flawed and the best you can do falls wide?"
--Hellen Trevillion, "The Message"
"Time is a wheel in constant motion always rolling us along. Who wants to look back on their years and wonder where those years have gone?"
--Lee Ann Womack, "I Hope You Dance"
"You're hiding under water. I pray to God, wash me away. Can't hear the child's wonder. The innocence got hushed along the way. No I won't take you for granted. These broken arms can hold you still. No I won't leave you abandoned. This broken heart can love you still."
-Beth Hart, "Hiding Under Water"
"A great many people think they are thinking when they are merely rearranging their prejudices."
"In Germany they came first for the Communists, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Communist. Then they came for the Jews, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a Jew. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I didn't speak up because I wasn't a trade unionist. Then they came for the Catholics, and I didn't speak up because I was a Protestant. Then they came for me, and by that time no one was left to speak up."
"There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so."
“God doesn’t care what you call yourself. He’s not impressed with Catholic, Protestant, Methodist, Episcopalian, Baptist, Lutheran… Those are words that people made up, and they mean nothing to God…nothing. He sees right through all that stuff, into your heart. It’s not about church, it’s not about doing a list of activities, and it’s not about calling yourself a particular name or going through some particular ritual. It’s much more personal than that.”
"It's a lie. There's nobody needed in this world. Nobody. Not a single person. Parents, teachers, great men and women, kids or adults, me. The world doesn't need any of us. The world doesn't care who lives and who dies. It still keeps bringing days and nights and time. I'm sure that the world doesn't need anyone. What a miserable fate. It's so lonely and depressing. I'm sure that's why people search for one another. They need that. They want to need and be needed. They need someone who'll fit that."
-Kyoko from "Fruits Basket"
"I don't have the time for a drink from the cup. Let's rest for a while 'till our souls catch us up. Bring on the wonder, bring on the song. I pushed you down deep in my soul for too long. Bring on the wonder, we got it all wrong. We pushed you down deep in our souls, so hang on."
-Susan Enan "Bring on the Wonder"
"The only things I ever did were for myself. I only cared about my penance. I only said what I wanted to say. And through everything, I've ignored your feelings. And sometimes you never get the chance to apologize to someone. I knew that, but if I'm just going to repeat the same thing, how's that any different than not knowing at all?"
-From "Fruits Basket" volume 21
"I wish I could have lived my life without making any wrong turns. But that's impossible. A path like that doesn't exist. We fall. We trip. We get lost. We make mistakes. And little by little, one step at a time, we push forward. It's all we can do on our own two feet. Even if we get a little banged up, someday we'll reach something...we'll reach someone...we pray."
-"Fruits Basket" Volume 21
I UPDATED! I updated all my works in progress, and posted something new (just a small personal story, 4 pages).
I suppose I'd like to put this here, but if ever anyone wants to email me or instant message me, you are free to do so. I like talking to people :) I only have msn messenger though...
I now have a facebook! It's under my real name of course, not my authors name.
I also have a youtube account, though I haven't posted any videos yet. That one's under my authors name.
If ever uno was too boring for you, then try this. It's the game me and my cousins played...for over an hour with no victor.
TABLE OF CONTENTS:
Chapter 74 of Advocate: TLJ added on 7/04/09
Hi :) First off, I'll introduce myself! I am Kitai Matsuru, the duellist master! (The duellist master of what...I really don't know.)
Real name: Aurora (literally). I won't give out my full name though...and feel free to call me by a nickname if you want. People call me Kitai, Koneko, Roary, Rora-chan, Au...yeah, don't ask about that last one. My gym teacher gave it to me...
My Fanfiction Shippings:
Fav Music: basically anything rock, pop, or country. I also really like classical, instrumental, band songs, jazz, broadway, and techno/trance. I don't like most hip hop, rap, and R&B.
TOP 12 favorite songs at the moment: (I picked twelve because...well...I couldn't make up my mind :)
TV shows: I rarely ever watch TV, but I love the Disney channel and Nickelodeon. I'll watch almost anything from those two channels. I also like a lot of ongoing shows too. Here's my list.
Movies: I have a lot of favorite movies (although I don't actually watch many). My absolute favorite would have to be Kung Pow: Enter the Fist. It's just so stupid that it's hilarious! I also really like Serenity. I'm a huge FireFly fan, and I absolutely love the movie. Some others are anything Disney that's a cartoon (especially The Emperor's New Groove. That's one of my favorites) I also like The Matrix, National Treasure, Independence Day (basically all disaster movies...), and I really like Simply Irresistable. I know there's more, but I don't remember right now. I also really like watching comedians. Thou Shalt Laugh is my favorite comedy DVD.
FUTURE ASPIRATIONS: Well, apparently I have to own my own house someday, and it must have a basement so that when my friend is a poor, starving English major, she can come and live with me...
STORY LISTING, MY WRITING
Ah, this is my little author section where i get to mention my books:) Here is the list thus far, going in order that they were written/first put up.
So far, I've finished Demon Awakening, My Sacrifice, A Light in the Dark, and Advocate. If I may make a suggestion, don't read Demon Awakening or Legend right now (or at least don't read them and base my writing skill off that) Those two stories will be rewritten eventually. I'll probably leave Legend up and then just post the newer version separately (cause there are so many differences with the new version I have planned that it would be impossible to just replace the chapters...and I dont wanna remove the story itself.)
My current project is working on the sequel to Advocate and also revising the original Advocate, which is a slow and painful process :(
And now, a bit about my writing. First off, I love cliffhangers, so you can be expecting plenty. Next, I like foreshadowing. Therefore I like keeping things secret and just hinting at them in the beginning (some people apparently don't understand this, because they've complained about how i introduce something and then don't explain it. What would be the point in giving away all the plot enhancers and character developments at the beginning of the story?)
IMPORTANT: This is a note to those who give me constructive critisism. I'm sorry for always lashing out at you guys when you do, but it's my nature, and there's a good reason for it. I started actually writing in my junior year of high school. I've only been doing it for a little over three years, and I think I've come a long way. Looking at Demon Awakening (my first story) and Advocate: The Last Judgement (my current story), I've made a great deal of improvement, and what makes that so important to me is that I achieved it by my own power, using only the few pieces of advice that my writing teachers have given me. I made that improvement on my own, and I believe in accomplishing things by my own power. This is the reason why I don't read books (and why I don't study for anything). I like seeing what I can do on my own. I've often been told that i need to read books in order to become a better writer, but I want to prove that ideology wrong. I don't want anything to influence my own style, and so I don't read. However, I want constructive criticism, because I know I probably need it, even if I don't want it. Keeping all this in mind, you can probably see why I get defensive and lash out at those whose basic intentions are just to help. I'm simply asking that you please not get mad and just accept it. It's who I am. That's not going to change.
TO THE REVIEWERS: I know I've mentioned this before during Advocate: TLJ, but I wanna make a general note about it. There is something I don't want people commenting on, and that's my grammar. A lot of people tend to be surprised about how few grammar mistakes I make, and most of them are honest mistakes where it's a slip of the keys or I get ahead of myself while writing. To be blunt, I'm a grammar nut. There is not a rule in grammar you can bring up that I probably don't know something about it. It's my forte, so unless you are one hundred percent sure that I'm wrong, you can say something, but otherwise don't pick at it. Also, keep in mind that fiction writing is different from formal writing. The same rules do not always aply.
I'm really big into anime and manga. It's great for inspiration. I have a few fics on fanficiton, so please go check them out if you can.
Anime: I have seen more than I could ever fit here. It'd take up too much space, so to save myself from that, I'll just post my top twelve favorites in order. I've seen probably over fifty different series (I made a list but i don't know where it is right now). So here's my top ten favorites :) It changed a bit recently, so here's the new and improved list.
Seiyuu (voice actors): I thought it'd be a good idea to list my favorite voice actors, for both Japanese and English anime, so here goes.
And...here's a list of my top ten favorite manga :)
Alright, and now to end this little section, here's my top twelve favorite video games! I love video games.
Now, just some fun stuff, like quotes and sayings, said by me or other people :)
"Being cocky leads to downfalls" (oh, if only you knew how true it is)
"You can't lose if you never get hit" (a definite rule in video games.)
"Always do what you're afraid to do." ( I read this somewhere...)
"It's alright to be selfish sometimes."
"You don't have to do anything you don't want to" -said by my friend Eric when I was at Valleyfair.
"There is no such thing as coincidence in this world. All there is is Hitsuzen" (from Cardcaptors/xxxHolic/Tsubasa chronicles)
And now some fun ones :)
"The rhythm was wrong, it was out of tune, you were rushing, and there were a lot of wrong notes, but other than that it was great!" -said by my band director about our band during practice...yeah, sometimes we need a lot of work...
"I don't suffer from insanity. I enjoy every minute of it." -bumper sticker.
"The world is more fun when you're psycho." -My sister
"You can't dampen the enthusiasm of a moron." -Seto Kaiba in the Yu-Gi-Oh manga
"Okay? I figure I've lost my mind, but I'm gonna go with it." -Joey Wheeler from the Yu-Gi-Oh anime
"Bullying is just wrong. Destroying people's brains with magical powers is aokay." -Yami from Yu-Gi-Oh: The Abridged series
"Screw the rules, I have money!" -Seto Kaiba from Yu-Gi-Oh: The Abridged series
"Why weren't you sensored anyway? I mean, what, guns are bad, but crossdressing princesses are aokay?" -Yugi from Yu-Gi-Oh: The Abridged series
"I learned from Phill and Opera, yet everything comes up Springer. I'm a fraud, a Phopra" -Hillary from Kyle XY
"You were there in spirit, and your spirit needed pie" -My friend Anessa
"Exploding limbs. Not good" -my friend Alicia
"Yaoi with emotionally traumatized pretty boys is aokay" my sister (No, she is not really a yaoi fan but yes, I am.).
Anyway, i suppose that's about it for me. I'll slowly add stuff to this as time goes on, but for now it's fine. Anyway, i hope you liked it. Now you know a little bit more about me, and yes, i'm insane. Maybe later on I'll put up what inspired my stories (then you'll really think that there's something wrong with me...)
Jaa, mata atode (see you later)!
