I really suck at these introduction things, but itís here, so I figure I should get around to actually putting one up. Where to startÖ.letís seeÖI joined Soulmate back when it was on Acornrack (I think it was about January of 2010 maybe it was February :\ I canít remember anymore ><), My first character was Geneva Podolski, followed by Damali Lupei, and as such they have been around the longest. Iím a bit of a character addict, but I also tend to get overwhelmed quickly with multiple characters which then makes me very unhappy. Iím hoping that it wonít happen if I pace myself properly. At any given time I have a bunch of ideas, but I am doing my best version of self control (which I apparently have very little of ><).
I love to plot, really, and the more sadistic the plots are the happier I am about them (yeah Iím odd). My favourite to mess around with are Damali and Kira (at the moment). I really am willing to give just about anything a shot so hit me up with whatever you want. I am not a huge fan of smut posts, particularly smut posts that arenít plot related (or character related aka certain characters are more likely to have coitius than others). That being said, if you give me a heads up before we start that itís where you want it to go Iíll probably be more than happy to accommodate, however, if you donít ask me first and your character just starts to strip, well, I canít promise you that my character wonít get distracted by their own socks and wander away. Basically just ask me first, k thx bai. There is also nothing wrong with the occasional fade to black (it's classy sometimes ;) )
If you are waiting for me to post, most of the time I post in order that I find them. Sometimes I donít have muse and might have to skip to a character I do have muse for, sometimes I just have no muse at all and either donít post or I post somewhat shorter or shitter posts (to be honest I think most of my posts suck <<). Oh, Iím also super slow at updating my history boards because I find it a pain in my butt (aka it takes me forever :|)
Iím a really big nerd, like seriously big nerd. I love Star Trek, Star Wars, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings (though the movies held my attention more than the books sorry :\). I love crime dramas (Criminal Minds, Law and Order SVU, NCIS, CSI, Flashpoint, etc), and also shows like Supernatural and Lost Girl. As for movies Iím really into Horror, Action, Suspense, etc. Disney and Romantic Comedies really donít do much for me. While I liked old Disney, Iím definitely not into a lot of the new stuff (mostly because I think Disney is evil).
As for music I have a very eclectic taste, I love Rise Against, Taylor Swift, Josh Groban, Simple Plan, Marianas Trench, The Veronicas, My Chemical Romance (esp their older stuff), Sarah McLachlan, Vanessa Carlton, um yeah Iíve definitely forgot some, but psh you get the idea. I donít like rap (except for maybe one or two songs) and Iím not a huge fan of heavy metal or hiphop. Most of the time with music itís the lyrics that mean the most to me so if I canít understand wtf they are saying I donít really see the point (that being said I do like some foreign language stuff even though I donít really understand it).
As for books I donít read for pleasure much during the school year but when I do read for fun it tends to be urban fantasy (Kim Harrison is one of my favourite authors). While Iíll try other books Iím the type of reader that if a book doesnít catch my interest in the first like chapter or so, I will stop reading. I canít stand reading books that donít have a lot of action in them.
I also play video games (though again not that often) and some of my favourites are Minecraft, Fable, Force Unleashed, Star Trek Voyager the Elite Force, Grand Theft Auto (though honestly I epic fail at it and give up easily and just drive the car around for hours), the Sims, um what else um I tend to like RPGs or Adventures, though I would say a great deal of games never hold my attention long enough for me to actually play them from start to finish.
What elseÖIím an Aries (if you are into that sort of thing XD), Iím going to be finishing up my BA degree this year (hopefully, if my University stops cancelling the classes I need D<). Iím a major in Religious Studies (read: world religions, this is NOT theology! I was focusing on eastern religions but now I would say I focus on women in world religions if only because there is no longer an eastern relig prof at my uni, and because the majority of my essays have involved something about female in that topic/religion/etc). My minor is political science (a choice I now regret but Iím officially done my minor so itís a little late now). I donít know what Iím doing after so yeah donít ask. I might do a masters, but I definitely need some time off, Iím tired of school.
I am Canadian, specifically Iím from Alberta. Gildra is obviously not my real name, but Iím cool if you call me that. My birthday is April 12 and Iím 22 years old now. I think most people would describe me as friendly, nice, funny, etc. Though that being said I get sort of loopy under stress (which tends to happen toward the end of term lawls). I have an older brother who will be getting married Feb 2012 in Mexico and Iím looking forward to that. Iím forever aloneÖum I mean single (truthfully it doesnít bother me XD). I donít drink that often but when I do I prefer coolers, shots, or a good old rum and coke.
I love chocolate (which is why I really love the five minute cake in a mug from bacon concentrate (seriously itís a badass recipe). My favourite comedian is Eddie Izzard (I loves him very much), and I really love Russell Peters as well.
I have AIM and MSN (but I wonít post them, youíll have to ask/get to know me first). I also have tumblr (again I wonít post it but if you get to know me I might share it :3). I also have skype but I really really really have to know you well first firstly because itís very close to my real name, and secondly because Iím so freaking awkward on skype that I just avoid it.
UmÖ.I canít think of what else to sayÖ
Oh, I fangirl, which Iíve been told by a friend looks something like thisÖ
