Name:

Well, it's a lil hard to pronounce so, no, I won't mention it here.

Qiurks:

I have mild pagan-goth tendencies. I am also addictied to fanfiction and the Merry Gentry series,( as a friend once commented, those books are literary crack...) not to mention the imaginary boyfriend... sigh.

The one who owns my heart is of mist and fantasy wrought. But i especially belive inthe pagan/wiccan idea of the Summerland and the Sheperd Of Heaven. I absolutely hate preachers and motivational speakers. Charlatans, all of them.

Favorite things:

fantasy, horror (only during daylight hours) ,classical literature, watch movies and cartoons, philosophy, anthropology,ancient history, mythology, write, research non-mainstream religions (current topic,Wicca), archery, fencing, spend time with my dogs, read fanfiction, anime and manga, old Victorian clothes, Gothic fashion,Victorian and Edwardian art and jewellery, Mystical and faerie art, Art Noveau stuff, Pre Raphaelite paintings, rainy days, the full moon, elves and dragons, sing, sleep, eat!!

Fave writers:

Mercedes Lackey, Darren O' Shaughnessy aka Darren Shan, Terry Brooks,Patricia Kennealy, Raymond E Fiest, Christine Feehan,Brian Jacques,KateTiernan, Katharine Kerr, Laurell K Hamilton, Dennis L McKiernan, Tennyson, Austen, Kate Chopin, Poe, Stoker (Dracula rocks!) Margaret Atwood, Oscar Wilde.

Fave colours: black, silver, aquamarine, violet , red, forest green.

Personality:

I would describe myself as a person of contrasts; I have a variety of personas that are vastly contrasting, from upbeat and crazy, a calm agony aunt, to an avant garde artsy fartsy,a goth, to a bohemian and a cynic. So many different personalities that sometimes I think I have lost the real me... or is this mix that truly makes me who I am?

Fave quotes:

True strength is in independence and individuality.

Laughter shared, increases, tears shared, diminish.

Being loved gives you strength, loving someone else gives you courage.

We cannot change the truth, no matter how much we dislike it.

Courage is not in the towering oak that weathers storms that come and go, it is the fragile little blossom that blooms even through the snow.

The hardest thing about loving someone is watchng them love someone else (this is so true...)

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but the number of times our breath is taken away.

the heart, though the hardest working, is the one muscle wich never heals quite right.

We can only do our best in the tme we are given, it is up to our decendants, with the gift of both hindsight and a knowledge of the consequences, to judge our actions.

Too often when I loved, I did not say so. What that has cost me, I'll never know.

Almost all absurdity of conduct comes fron the imitation of those whom we cannot resemble.

Do not believe in anything simply because you have heard it.
Do not believe in anything simply because it is spoken and rumored by many.
Do not believe in anything simply because it is found written in your religious books.
Do not believe in anything merely on the authority of your teachers and elders.
Do not believe in traditions because they have been handed down for many generations
But after observation and due thought, when you find that anything agrees with your reason and is conducive to the good and benefit of one and all, then accept it and live up to it.

You can close your eyes to reality, but not to memories.

For those who have lived well and are content, death is but another journey of discovery.

For those who have lived well, thier souls light and free of evil, Death comes in the form of their perfect and most gentle lover.

The opposite of hate is not love, it is indifference.
