ToughPenelope, The Wordsmith
"Tell me, O Muse, of the man of many devices, who wandered full many ways after he had sacked the sacred citadel of Troy."
Scholars believe the Odyssey was composed somewhere near the end of the 8th century BC. So many years after it's still one of the greatest epic poems...
(Well, the main preamble^ isn't that good, compared to the first preamble of the Iliad which is all messed up and plain fun.)
I am Penelope. I am here to read, waste my time and laugh at failures. :/
Favorite mythical creature is the sirens.
I have yet to figure out my favorite crying bitch.
My principles are my everything. Hell yeah.
I have a very good knowledge of Odyssey / Iliad/Greek Mythology /Lord of the Rings/Harry Potter/ Star Trek/ A Series of Unfortunate Events and more, trivia. Message me if you want to discuss something of them.
That's it. You may now go look at someone else's profile. Some are funny, some are boring and some are useful.

Ah, thank you both for the reviews. And thanks @undr for that long review even if it's dead.
To be honest, I didn't actually think that you people would like the translated version but I wrote it and put it there anyway just in case...

Here's a tiny story I wrote for little children, for fun. It's kinda rushed but it's definitely a boring little Christmas tale.
Once upon a time, on a Christmas Eve, a little child was anxiously waiting for the next days to come. His name was Brian and he loved eating chocolate. In fact, he was so into it, he wrote a letter, asking Santa Claus to bring him as much chocolate as he could. His parents were so happy their kid had found a hobby! Little Brian hated vegetables, fruits and all kinds of healthy food. He was an only child, so his parents did all the favors he asked for. Sometimes, the other kids in school made fun of him because he was so fat and greedy. But Brian laughed and said "Give some chocolate for the needy!"
So, on this Christmas Eve, Brian was so excited because he had made the most incredible plan ever! On the next year, he would eat as much chocolate as possible. He had heard of those Guinness records and he definetely wanted one of them. He daydreamed for a while sitting on his bed and later he fell asleep. In his dream, he saw some awful things. He saw people getting sick, he saw hospitals, prisons and every horrible situation he could ever imagine. He watched people suffering. He just stared for a bit but then...Santa arrived! Brian ran towards him and told him about all of the things that he had seen. But Santa smiled enigmatically and told him "All of the things that you saw, actually happen in real life. All people should get informed about that and help each other in every way they can. Being greedy isn't one way to help, is it?". Brian thanked Santa and started thinking. The next day, he woke up. He ran into the living room, waved at his parents and saw his stocking was full. He opened all the presents, toys and clothes happily. He found a tiny box underneath all those presents. He opened it and found a small chocolate piece. Then, a little paper fell onto his hands and he read "From Santa. A little bit of chocolate doesn't hurt though, does it?" Brian ate it and spent a wonderful Christmas with his family without the need of eating chocolate all the time but reminded he should help people more often. Giving his presents to the poor would be great. He had the time of his life when he donated his presents afterwards witb his father. He would become a great man.
