ilivetowriteandinspire replied to your post: Posting under read more cause this is an anti-Vampire Academy movie rant

I hate this cast. Ive been dying for a VA movie since I read the first book years ago and when the books are finally optioned for a movie they pick the worst looking people to play the characters. Im definitely not watching any of them.

Got Tagged again....

I was tagged by ilivetowriteandinspire…. I guess I could tag other people but I have asks to respond to in my inbox so meh? 

Her questions: 

1. Write one random fact about yourself. 

I wasn’t born in Colorado like the rest of my siblings. Instead I was born in the suburb of Arlington, which is really close to Dallas, in Texas. 

2. Are you single/taken/married? 

Single…. but people ship me with a close online guy friend from England who I love… but I don’t know if he returns my affections…. 

3. Do you have a social life? 

Um…. no… not really D: I’d like one though but most of my “socialising” comes from tumblr… take that as you will… 

4. How long have you been on tumblr? How did you come across it? 

Five months! And I first came across tumblr because one of my best online friends, everythingsplatonic, had one, and so I explored her blog (in one gulp) and later when the Legend of Korra was airing I began searching the tags and found Korrlok and here I am. :D 

5. Who are your favourite authors? 

George R.R. Martin, C.S. Lewis, Hilary McKay, Edith Pattou, L. M. Montgomery, William Joyce, Beverly Lewis, Shannon Hale, Robin McKinley, Elizabeth George Speare, Noel Streatfield, H. G. Wells, Jules Verne, Alexandre Dumas, Jane Yolen, Eoin Colfer, Jerry Spinelli, Euripedes, Homer, Norton Juster, Tolkein, Pearl S. Buck…. I could go on and on and on… 

honorary mention to fanfic author thelonemongrel! 

6. Who are your favourite musicians? Name at least 5. 

Hmmm…. musicians… well um… Jon Foreman (Switchfoot), Jared Leto (30 Seconds to Mars) Steven Curtis Chapman, Cassidy Ladden, Renee Fleming. 

7. What kind of music puts you in the mood to write? 

Instrumental music largely, especially as honed by the bands Two Steps from Hell (excellent!!) and Immediate Music. I’ve also created several playlists on Youtube for specific works, my playlist for my novel “Beauseant” being the longest thus far, and the second longest is my playlist for the Cruel Intentions Ice Age novel-length fanfic series. 

8. Do you have any reading goals for the new year? 

Not currently… 

9. What are you currently writing? 

Two big projects currently: 

“Beauseant” my novel that’s been a concept in my mind since around 07 and that I actually began writing during NaNo and got up to one hundred and four pages but that’s only the tip of the iceberg for this novel…. 

“Cruel Intentions” my Ice Age fanfiction novel series. I am currently working on its prequel, “Cruel Intentions: Lacrimosa” and that novel is at this moment in time nearly 100k words and with twelve chapters… but that is only the introduction to the story basically. My goal this year is to finish Lacrimosa so that I can get to work on Cruel Intentions (the first two chapters are either fully written or nearly complete already!) 

(And that’s not even counting all my various oneshots and other planned stories for Korrlok and Rise of the Guardians that I’m still going to try to finish D:) 

10. Where do you see yourself in ten years? 

When do I see myself in ten years? Hmmm… by that time I’ll be thirty-one! Hopefully travelling the world and meeting all my online friends, maybe finding love along the way, publishing one of my novels and actually earning a profit back from it and having the satisfaction that Cruel Intentions is complete and I wrote it because I wanted to see the story for myself (whether or no it brings me fame from the Ice Age fandom - where I’m already one of the most respected authors - or not) and to see all the amazing cities in the world I’ve longed to, like London…. 

That’s being wishful though. To actually make that happen in ten years that means I SHOULD NOT BE ON MY LAPTOP ALL THE TIME, WHETHER IT’S WRITING OR TUMBLR. 

11. What are your goals for 2013? Do you believe that you’ll actually accomplish them? 

My goals for 2013 are to 

1. Get a job and earn money on my own 

1a. AND TO DO THAT MEANS WEANING MYSELF OFF OF TUMBLR AND THE INTERNET BUT I WILL STILL WRITE (HOPEFULLY) 

2. Set aside at least two hours for writing per day for my blockbluster stories like Beauseant and the Cruel Intentions fanfic novel series. 

3. Finish Cruel Intentions: Lacrimosa so I can turn to and publish Cruel Intentions (and that’s only the second novel in this seriesxD I see myself writing CI for many years frankly :D But I write {and read} really really fast so it probably won’t take quite that long XD ) 

4. Finish Beauseant by year’s end so I can hopefully start editing it by next year. 

5. If it’s possible this time, go to England to meet thelonemongrel after he’s been inviting me to come see him since 2010 and he’s said he’s going to show me around London! :) 

ilivetowriteandinspire asked:

28, 62, 64

Hehe, danke for the ask! :3 <3 

28: Do you think long distance relationships can work?

I think that they can if the trust necessary for such a relationship is already fundamental to the friendship and that can determine where their boundaries are and are willing to make time to “meet” with each other over the interwebs, since having time together in any form is essential to relationship formation and strengthening. 

62: How do you define “cheating”?

I would define “cheating” as actions, whether they are breaking oath with the person you’re in a relationship with by kissing/having sex with someone else. I also think “cheating” is definable as emotional actions such as a lack of being honest with such situations, so that compounds it. 

All in all, I define “cheating” as WRONG. If you love someone, give them all of yourself and be faithful to them. 

64: Do you think Valentine’s Day is overrated?

In a way, yes. It’s fallen so away what it originally started out being, what was a celebration in honour of the Christian priest Valentine who performed Christian marriages in secret since Rome was threatening to kill him and they did eventually. 

Now Valentine’s Day is all about chocolates and sweets and pampering the significant other. It’s so commercialised I doubt that many people even know the origins of the holiday….

Sorry, didnt mean to embarrass you. Its perfectly fine to express yourself. I think I need to check out this new tumblr. I was going to wait for my new laptop but Ill go on my husbands iMac tomorrow. Cant scroll down dash? Unbelievable.

Ah, it’s okay… I just have this terrible problem of feeling too much… D: 

And yes, you really can’t. :/ endless scrolling is enabled and there’s no option of reblogging a post and being taken to a new page and I miss that a lot already. ;;
