Who's the creator of this madness?
In a nutshell I'm a brown-eyed, brunette Southern girl with a love of anime, gaming, giant robots, books, snark, and
things that taste of strawberries. Also a writer and would-be published author of vampires, werewolves, cat people, giant wolves,
spaceships, mecha, and anything else that'll fit in a book.
I've been on a computer since I was probably six or seven (MSDOS, baby, oh yeah) and on the internet since about 1994. Since being introduced to the madness that the web has become, I've run my own website (in various incarnations) as well as an RP board (also in several incarnations) since around 2000. I've been known as Peregrine Falcon (or Perigren Falkyn as is my now preferred spelling) and Curbius Lakrofin amongst what used to be a big adoptables crowd, Saerry Snape to the denizens of the Pit of Voles (aka Fanfiction.net), and Terion has been my general use-name for the past few years.
When I'm not writing or in school or working, you can generally find me surfing the internet looking for mad things.
Some Quotes I Like:"If I lose the light of the sun, I will write by candlelight, moonlight, no light. If I lose paper and ink, I will write in blood on forgotten walls. I will write always. I will capture nights all over the world and bring them to you."
--- Henry Rollins
"Life is too deep for words, so don't try to describe it, just live it."
--- C.S. Lewis
"Fear has a lot of flavors and textures. There's a sharp, silver fear that runs like lightning through your arms and legs, galvanizes you into action, power, motion. There's heavy, leaden fear that comes in ingots, piling up in your belly during the empty hours between midnight and morning, when everything is dark, every problem grows larger, and every wound and illnesss grows worse. And there is coppery fear, drawn tight as the strings of a violin, quavering on one single note that connot possibly be sustained for a single second longer -- but goes on and on and on, the tension before the crash of cymbals, the brassy challenge of the horns, the threatening rumble of the kettle drums".
--- Harry Dresden, The Dresden Files
"He who fights monsters should look into it that he himself does not become a monster. When you gaze long into the Abyss, the Abyss also gazes into you."
--- Friedrich Neitzsche
"Of course it is escapist. That is its glory! When a soldier is a prisoner of war it is his duty to escape - and take as many with him as he can. The moneylenders, the know-nothings, the authoritarians have us all in prison; if we value the freedom of the mind and soul, if we're partisans of liberty, then it's our plain duty to escape, and to take as many people with us as possible."
--- J. R. R. Tolkien, in response to criticism of his writing fantasy (fantasy being "inferior" & mere "escapism")
