Yosup! My name is Amy, but you can call me Certified or something similar if you really want to. I'm about 5'4", long curly blonde hair - think blonde Merida with a side shave and you're probably close - gray blue eyes, purple glasses, palest skin you've ever seen, and probably the wickedest grin to go with it. My side shave is very important and I will refer to it as 'The Shave', 'fuzz', 'fuzzy', etc. Things of that nature. If you aren't sure, it's probably the fuzz.
I've roleplayed for probably 6 and a half years now. That's how I got into writing - first it was fanfiction, like so many of us, and then branched into original works that you can see below. I run an internet group...thing...and I have for 5 years. It's the best thing I've ever done. Shoutout to my Retreat fellows.
Let's see. I love reading. Favorite books would be the Chronicles of Narnia, Percy Jackson and the Olympians, the Night Circus, Pride and Prejudice, Lord of the Rings, etc...not necessarily in that order, but the Narnia books will always hold a special place in my heart. There's also an unhealthy obsession with bad fanfiction. My Immortal, the Prayer Warriors, I love it all. So much. God bless the Holy United States of God-fearing America. Folk music is taking over my life. Mumford and Sons will destroy me in the end, just you watch. Webseries are super important to me (new media is fascinating!), but especially the Lizzie Bennet Diaries, and that influences what and how I write a lot.
By now, most of what I write is either Retreat or Circus. I have a few newer projects, but the Retreat and the Circus are kind of my life, so let's talk about them. Onward!
The Retreat of the Gods is the story of a group of demigods that form out of necessity of punishment; Amy is banished from Olympus to start a training site for illegitimate children of the Gods. After her initial punishment - 2 years - is over, she decides to stay and the Retreat grows from a training facility to a home for wayward children. Tagged in summaries as RotG.
The Underground Circus is the story of a group of peculiars that gather out of desire for freedom; after abandoning the Soviet military for fear of being caught as supernatural creatures, Anya and Liev return to the Circus Anya visited as a child. Shortly after, they are given the Circus by the owner. Taking on new names - the Lady Master and the Commander, respectively - they shoulder the Circus and it's oddities. Tagged in summaries as UC.
Five and Council is the story of a group of musicians that band together out of a thirst for adventure. Fresh out of college, they decide to travel together and perform. "Travelling musicians? I guess, but we prefer the term 'bard'. Bards tell stories, that's what we try to do. Tell stories through our music." Tagged in summaries with F&C.
Other places I am: Deviantart, Tumblr, Pinterest, FanFiction (though the things on my ff account are old and probably gross but I don't have the heart to take them down). I put up drabbles and shorter fics on my writing tumblr sometimes. I also have an account for my characters and inspiration and stuff.
I work a lot with LadyInteresting. The Circus is her Circus - we are very good friends and she works with my Retreat, I work with her Circus, it's a great time.
