아리랑, 아리랑, 아라리요...아리랑 고개로 넘어간다.
나를 버리고 가시는 님은 십리도 못가서 발병난다.
청청하늘엔 별도 많고, 우리네 가슴엔 꿈도 많다.
저기 저 산이 백두산이라지 동지 섣달에도 꽃만 핀다.

--Arirang, a Korean folk song about some girl whose lover left her and in the song, she hopes that he breaks her leg so he has to come back to her. I swear Korean women are capable of such curses.


Name: Arirang

Age: 16-ish.

Likes: Poetry, trashy novels, pastries & sweets, excellent coffee, animal science, people-watching, foul language, violent weather conditions, really good novels, photography/art, and a smattering of manga.

Dislikes: Few and far between. Confrontation, extraordinarily trashy novels, calculus, and vegetables.

Homepage: I'm actually quite addicted to allpoetry(dot)com. If anyone else is a user of that site, PM me. We must become friends.

To my utter disbelief, I posted something after a very long time of avoiding FP for my own sanity. Like I promised in its A/N, here is a sort-of-full summary.

Prophet

A life of misfortunes. Born mute, with her parents dead, and learning to cope as slave girl of a brutal foreign general, Cara has all but given up. But hope always comes in unexpected ways. And what could she possibly have to do the Society of Prophets, which has guarded secrets for so long even some of its members have forgotten what they are?

A story of survival, death, and love. Hopefully not as disappointing as its summary makes it sound.

I return reviews that are helpful to me; I try to be helpful, too. Anything else? PM me! I love to talk.
