Something brilliant

After the novels, after the teacups, after the skirts that trail along the floor

We are each burdened with prejudice; against the poor or the rich, the smart or the slow, the gaunt or the obese. It is natural to develop prejudices. It is noble to rise above them. ~Author Unknown

"Our worst fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn't serve the world."
--Nelson Mandela

Hi folks! You have perhaps wandered upon my profile wondering what sort of strange person you have just encountered? NO PROBLEM. I will give you all the relevant details! And also some irrelevant ones!

So like who are you?

Well that's a very complex question. You see philosophically speaking I suppose you could say that --- no wait, just kidding! I am a university girl with far too much time on her hands who watches alot of TV!

I see. What sort of shows then?

It varies. Right now, many Asian dramas! Princess Ja Myung Go, Flames of Ambition, and Black & White are at the top of the list. English things include Merlin, The Vampire Diaries, Young Justice, Glee, and Lost Girl. Which, by the way, I want to know why you're not watching. Bisexual succubus solves crime with sidekick in poorly disguised Toronto. Do not even pretend like any part of that description isn't awesome.

Soooo you are a fan of teenagers and fantasy/sci-fi/awesome things then?

The answer to your question is yes!

Alright, what else do you do with your time?

Read books. Many many books. Enormous amounts of books.

Didn't you mention you had school or something?

Yes! But it is sort of SUPER BORING and I'll probably only mention it if I feel like complaining. =DDD I have high hopes for my English courses this year though!

I'm bored, give me some fic.

Happy to oblige!

I read this whole thing, do I get a prize?

What, the hundreds of fic recs weren't enough for you? Fine, here you go.

P.S. It's open season on friending here. You don't have to say anything, I totally understand being a lurker. Because, well, ways I spend half my time online. If you want me to friend you back though just drop me a line so I know okay? I don't look at this profile too often. ^^
