My CFS and Fibromyalgia always seem to be fighting for top billing.

Every time I think my pain is worse than my fatigue, CFS raises her ugly head and says, “You wanna bet?”

Fibromyalgia is briefly upstaged by an intense Chronic Fatigue crash, but she always comes back swinging, trying to top her rival.

My body is the home to two prima donna stars who want to be centerstage and will do anything to get there.

I’m not enjoying this show.

“I saw my first musical when I was in my second year of high school; it gave me goosebumps. So I decided to become a musical theater actor, and now I am in an acting academy.”
“Now that you’re in an acting academy what do you honestly think about acting?”
“Life is really difficult.” “뮤지컬을 고 2 때 처음 봤었는데 가슴이 확 떨리더라고요. 그래서 전 뮤지컬 배우가 되기로 결심하고 학원을 다니고 있어요.”
“실제로 학원을 다녀보니 어때요?”
“세상 살기 참 힘들더라고요.”

Centerstage- #7 Velvet Scarlatina by Dane-of-Celestia


“You first-years are just shadowing Huntsmen, so you should be fine.”

—Velvet, encouraging Team RWBY

Velvet Scarlatina is a Faunus student of Beacon Academy, and a member of Team CFVY.Velvet is a very shy, quiet girl who tends to keep to herself, either by choice or because she is isolated by others for being a Faunus. Even when being picked on by others, she tends to act very reserved and refuses to fight back. One can say that she is very timid.
Later, when Bartholomew Oobleck asked if anyone had been discriminated against for being Faunus, she was hesitant to even raise her hand, and only did so after seeing another classmate raise their hand first. Monty Oum describes her as having modest fashion tastes.
However, despite her shy personality, she seems to get along with others, as seen with Team RWBY, and being an older student, she wishes them safety on their mission.
In battle, shown in "Breach,” Velvet continues to display her timid nature. When not attacking or finishing an attack, her stance is much more closed than the others, even hiding under Yatsuhashi Daichi when Fox Alistair pops an Ursa with his weapons, sending its spines flying within the vicinity of the area.
In addition to this, she unquestioningly obeyed Coco’s suggestion to avoid using her weapon in the fight against the hordes of Grimm.
