ShoujoAddict, The Wordsmith
Hi there, assuming you've come to see this profile implies you would want to know something about me. Well I'm your regular loquacious, nerdy, science loving, anime addicted, college going person. I like reading, poetry and writing a lot so expect some works from me...(if I ever finish them that is.)
A quatrain fills a little space,
Although it’s pretty small,
And often times, as in this case,
It has no point at all.
Some quotes that sound good to me:
"If you don't have time to read, you don't have time to write."
"Write without fear, edit without mercy."
"If I waited for perfection I would never write a word."
“I define science fiction as the art of the possible. Fantasy is the art of the impossible”
"Nothing in this world exists except atoms and empty space; everything else is just specualtion."
"May you live all the days of your life."
"Love is a serious mental disease."
"All that we see and seem is just a dream within a dream."
-Edgar Allan Po
"Everything that lives is designed to end. We are perpetually trapped in a never-ending spiral of life and death. Is this a curse? Or some kind of punishment? I often think about the god who blessed us with this cryptic puzzle...and wonder if we'll ever get the chance to kill him."
-2B, Nier Automata.
"If you want to live a happy life tie it to a goal not to people or things."
Who will believe my verse in time to come,
If it were fill’d with your most high deserts?
Though yet, heaven knows, it is but as a tomb
Which hides your life and shows not half your parts.
If I could write the beauty of your eyes
And in fresh numbers number all your graces,
The age to come would say “This poet lies;
Such heavenly touches ne’er touch’d earthly faces.”
So should my papers, yellowed with their age,
Be scorn’d like old men of less truth than tongue,
And your true rights be term’d a poet’s rage
And stretched metre of an antique song:
But were some child of yours alive that time,
You should live twice, in it and in my rhyme.
The trees are in their autumn beauty,
The forest paths are dry,
Under the October twilight a water,
Mirrors the still sky.
Charles IV, king of Bohemia and holy roman emperor was considered one of the most influential and successful rulers of his time. However, not all of his decisions were wise...
Special thanks to mazardark for his advice on historical combat, and to cricket for beta reading.
Also, this is an entry to Corgi's unofficial contest of the lords and my first story on the site.
This fan fiction is based on 'Kimi Ni Todoke' a manga series. If you don't want your experience with the manga to be spoiled then please do not read this.
To any fellow otaku fans out there I apologize if I'm not able to give you the level of depth you experience from the actual manga(since I'm nowhere near the level of Karuho Shiina)but nevertheless I hope you like this.
To all other readers, well if you know about the series it certainly would help to better grasp and "feel" the story, but if you don't want to go through the painstaking effort of reading scans from the net (and ruining your laptop with viruses) then you can treat this as an individual story too; that being said I highly recommend you read the series later though.
Hope you enjoy!

Try doing this, just cross your legs on your bed, put your hands on your knees and just close your eyes, and be like that for five to ten minutes. Don't squirm around and just lose yourself in the environment. Then just imagine your body falling down on your soft bed and your head being cradled by your pillow. Keep focusing on your breathing throughout and just leave your muscles loose. Then imagine your mind going into a deep blackness and nothingness for infinity.
If this still does not work, what I usually do is just have a huge bowl of yogurt, until I'm stuffed (non-flavored, otherwise the sugar rush will worsen your condition), and then imagine the above steps.

Ugh, yeah going through it, and hate it when that happens. Sometimes I wish if we could just simply put forth the whole story in the mapped out, plot point version itself and just tell the judges to, "Use your imagination for the finer details! I'm sure y'all are creative enough to be a judge!"

Just written the first page... It's available on creative corner BTW. I'll have to buck up the pace.

Cool! thanks for going through it. I always get kinda confused when punctuating poetry, at times it feels like its imperative to end each line with a comma and a stanza with a full stop. Other times, I feel like it detracts from the flow as you pointed out.

I was walking down the street,
When I came upon the sight,
Staring at the sky, as I meet,
Your eyes, that flickered from mine,
That moment was still ringing,
Deep through my mind as I searched,
Curious, wondrous, unfulfilling,
I found myself, in a void, merged,
As wide as the oceans was my,
Mind that was so hard to grasp,
As broad as the rivers was my,
Heart that jumped from my grasp,
But then, there was a sudden pang of hunger,
As I woke up for breakfast, from my slumber.

There once was a man named Dave-y-faster,
Who dabbled with a rhyme that caused me to wonder,
About his incredulous metaphors,
And humor-induced snores,
That made me stare, wide-eyed, at this world's eighth wonder...

I think I got it now. Thanks!
It sounds like me-ta-forh for me now when I say it out loud though. I'm bad with 'r' s

Well, I think I was doing just that lol. So you could assume that a Mark Twain character wrote that Limerick, lol
