Author has written 1 story for Fantasy.VANA’S BIO
Hi…this is my world. If you have continued reading after ‘my world’, I pity you as my world is not something that is that great or sane. Most consider me as eccentric and confused, though I am usually calm and coordinated around strangers and VERY important people. It is this strangeness that is me that has got me into trouble more than once and given birth to my 4 alter-egos, my official muses.
Now, on that point, I suppose I had better tell you something about them before the confusion becomes so deadest that you won’t be able to comprehend what I am saying anymore asparagus flapjacks and socks…er…see what I mean? :).
* * * *
I have four muses, they are like drifty spirits that all have their own colours. This is because they are basically very hard to tell apart unless I give them names of characters out of books, of whose descriptions they will then adopt. But this is just too scary and I KNOW I would name one of them ‘Legolas’ and I just don’t want that distraction walking around the house. Hee hee.
-Head Muse: is always dressed in white and is all wise, he has an obsession with Double Jeopardy and can spend hours with his face glued to the screen, asking the questions before they are answered without flaw all the time, every time (if that makes any sense).
-Muse #3: (my review muse who gives me ideas about how to write a good review of someone's story) is in purple has a liking to knitting. We all think he is trying to make some weird point about an upcoming ice age, so far he has made 200 blankets, mittens, scarves and socks and counting. He is VERY sarcastic about EVERYTHING.
-Muse #4: is in red and is very dramatic, he helps me write the serious side to my stories, but he has no sense of humour and can fall into a depression really quick if someone steals his continual limelight (drama queen). He is also REALLY bad at writing things himself, so he jus inspires me to do it instead.
-Muse #2: I left to last coz he's a little more complex. He dresses in bright yellow with pink stripes and this weird green baseball cap, this is because he is ever starved for attention as we all ignore him, consistently. As my quiet “Plot Bunny”, he is usually shy and withdrawn, but recently he popped his head up, sending #4 into a self-pitying spiral of depression when we all found out (with much disbelief) that he is my slash muse, a bit of comedy on the side and coming up parody expert; #4 is becoming dark because of this and my serious fic is going dark with him.
All of them must have short memories as they still give me sugar when they know full well I get psychotic when it hits my head (last week I boomeranged my keyboard at them, they ducked, then laughed before it came back and knocked them on the backs of their heads, effectively knocking them out). Anyway, that's enough on my constant “companions”.
Or maybe not, I have been given a recent addition to my group by a good friend at college and have named “him” as George, though he could be a girl too and I’ll never know the difference. He is a white seal made of wood and he has a permanent position blue-tacked to the top of my computer screen, grinning away like there’s no tomorrow (when I can, I’ll get a pic of him sometime). Muse #2 has taken a liking to him and I swear he has done something to the seal to make me write more, every time I look into those blue little eyes I get struck by inspiration and add more onto my stories, online and off. He’s so cute, muses are getting jealous, hee hee.
Now when I say things like ‘the birth of my alter-egos’, it’s not meant to be literal. We hang out, do stuff. They feed me chocolate, I feed them popcorn and TV. But you wanna know something really scary? I sometimes talk to them out loud and my dad gives me REALLY weird looks, I’m sometimes a little too strange for my own good.
COMPLIMENTARY MUSE SCRIPT:
Muse #3: #La dee da! *twiddles thumbs*
Muse #4: What you on about?
Muse #3: Oh nothing. #La dee da!
Muse #2: Huh? He has a secret, I know it! *points to #3 in a paranoid way*
Vana: No he doesn't.
Head Muse: Shh, TV. *puts on a pair of headphones so he can hear Double Jeapoardy better*
Muse #4: What do you mean, he doesn't have a secret?
Muse #3: #La dee dumdeeda. *starts to grin stupidly*
Muse #2: And I thought I was weird.
Vana: He is just thinking about the dream I had last night.
Muse #4: Oh, the one where you were proposed to by your best friend and you refused, saying could you just go steady for a bit, and then he said 'ok' and got elected premier of the state after this huge parade through the streets of Green City which, of course, does NOT exist and...
Vana: SHUT UP!
Muse #4: What? *whines* it's da truth.
Vana: You don't have to tell the whole world.
Muse #3: AH HAH!! I've got it!!
Muse #2: Oh goody. *rolls eyes and confides in George, the seal smiles and probably says everything is ok. no one really knows what goes on between those two, they keep it secret*
Muse #3: You are feeling lonely for a certain elf and are seeing possiblities that may be consequences of this feverent crush. In other words, if you don't get your mind off him, you will be doomed to celibacy and no guy for eternity.
Vana: *goes pale* Can that really happen?
Muse #4: Sure. Some crushes have major adverse effects on girls...especially Legolas crushes.
Vana: I have created monsters. *murmers and shakes her head, her muses are becoming intelligent, this is scary*

-Went to http:///hogwarts/quiz.html and took this quiz. It's all Harry Potter but hey, I couldn't resist and I found out I'm Hufflepuff. What do you do round here to get into Griffindor, sheesh.
-Camilla Sandman's site rocks and am currently worshipping it. She is second only to Tolkien and I recommend her stories to EVERYONE as she is the founder of OFUM (Official Fan-fiction University of Middle-Earth). Her site is http:///LOTR/ofum.html and you MUST go there after reading the stories, it's hilarious. Hee hee
-Have discovered Figwit! It is official, the poor guy has scrounged up another demented fan for no apparent reason considering he spent all of 10 seconds on screen. Here is a site if you wish to know who this elusive someone is. I had to know and lost it laughing when I found out (my father is considering the asylum). http:///TheFigwitplace/figwit1.msnw
-I also have ‘Real Person’ fics of mostly Orli and Elijah on and I’m still called Vana on there (just Vana, the last name is too long for it). If you want to, just check it out ok?
-Camilla Sandman, who wrote ‘OFUM’.
-Minka, the most goriest writer for elf torture alive.
-Yours Truly, angstiest elf emotional torture person alive.
-Minka and Yours Truly, just look above and cringe. They have joined.
-Thundera Tiger, SEE HER STUFF, veeeeeeerryyy good stuff.
-Naheka and Joe the Nazgul, VERY good stories, a must see.
-Writegirl, incredibly good, must see.
-For more, check my Favourites list. I LOVE them all.

I love life...period.
I have an awful habit of letting my Plot Bunny give me a HUGE bite and making me start on another story before I’m even a 5th through the others. It gets really annoying and I have got currently 14 stories under me belt with 7 online (including Orli and Elijah fics on the other site) and only 3 of those are complete with many more to take their place. Talk about hectic. Hee hee. Hopefully though I will wait a bit before I put them ALL on, coz I know how annoying it is to never get an update of anything even when the story is really obvious.
I love every story of LOTR or the cast members. I mean it, EVERY story, that includes love and thrills, torture and angst. Even slash sometimes draws my attention if it is...er...well, how do you explain slash. I don't like really kinky bondage though, I think that's where I've gotta draw the line.
Mary-Sues? Don't get me started. I've gotten so worried about some of my stories that I've changed the sex of my original characters to male. AAAARRRGHH, I despise Mary-Sue, she should go get a life.
Oh, Yeah. So should I. lol
I try to reveiw as many stories as possible but I only review on the last page. So if the story is HEAPS long, I can't always finish it and I go to bed at 6am or something. (which is quite normal for me).
To end this rather…er…strange inlook of my life, I shall say Ta ta.
ALL my reveiws end with "Ta Ta". It's just something I gotta do and seeing every other idea for a witty remark or a rememberal quote has been taken, I'm reduced to "Ta Ta".
