The Thief King's Lair

Enter if you dare bear the secrets of the hidden....

I like daydreaming. I love reading. I love having the opportunity to get stuck in someone else's world, with their problems instead of yours. Along with that, music, art, and plot twists frequently occupy my head. Recently I have discovered writing as more than just essays to turn in and grades based on thoughts rather than answers. Now there are 8 of us: Shannon, Leanne, Kai, Raleigh (my sister), Caleb, Vivs (my best friend), Fredrick, and me, Claire. Welcome to this little bit of insight into my head. Did I mention I like books?

And because this seems just a bit more descriptive:
I am Claire, though some people call me Clarie and Clariboo (but none of you are allowed to call me that). I can be, no, scratch that, am oftentimes being an idoit in some form or another (see? I just misspelled idiot). I'm really into reading and writing and follow quite a few author's blogs. I also have my own blog (http://claire8sterling.livejournal.com/ if you're interested) which I try to keep up with. I love singing and music (a few of my current favorites: AFI, Snow Patrol, Death Cab For Cutie, Chopin, The Bravery, Coldplay, and many others), and I absolutely love movie score (especially the How to Train Your Dragon soundtrack). A few of my favorite movies and TV shows are Avatar the Last Airbender (but not the recent movie adaptation), Hayao Miyazaki films, Criminal Minds, House MD, and How to Train Your Dragon (it really did blow me away). For favorite books you can check out my shelf and look at all the little hearts, and my favorite authors are probably Maggie Stiefvater (Shiver, Linger, Lament, Ballad), Jackson Pearce (Sisters Red, As You Wish), Lisa Mantchev (Theatre Illuminata books), Brenna Yovanoff (The Replacement), and Tessa Gratton (Blood Magic). I also really like drawing and consider art as a possible future career (http://picasaweb.google.com/117561723193899030193/MyArt#). And along with my art I also want to become an author and possibly live a somewhat insane (the insanity helps with plotting out books) life with all of my characters. Unless they annoy me too much. Then I'll stick them in a basement for a few days. Oh, and I have an older sister who I'm really close to, am a Seventh Day Adventist (note that that is a religion), and because of that I am a werewolf on Friday nights and a vampire on Saturdays. Plus, I'm a vegetarian, and I am trying to organize an angry mob to go after chatspeak. And I love making new friends.

Oh, and I write YA fantasy for the most part, though sometime I may try realism.

There you go.

And to add a few things to that monster of a bio:
I frequently jam my foot to the back of my throat. I apologize if anyone out there takes offense at anything I say, and none of the offense is intentional.
I am very eccentric, as you may have guessed. I pride myself in being a dork.
I am vain in the way that I like it when people take an interest in me, and I frequently daydream with stuff relating to this bit of vanity.
I like big words.
I really, really like plotting. And contradictions in my characters.
I have two best friends. One is fangcreed/Vivs, and the other happens to be my sister, jynnmorgan.
I can be rather pathetic.
I like tic-tacs. When I have some, I eat 'em like House takes Vicadin.
I am a Twi-hard. I read the entire series four times, and plan on reading it again.
I secretly aspire to be a mix of many book characters: Max, pieces of Fang, Iggy, bits of Bella, James, but without the swearing, maybe a few drops of Ruby Oliver, the March sisters, Ayumu, Eyes, Kousuke, Hiyono, Keili, Harvey, Katniss, Peeta, (I am still reading Catching Fire and don't know Gale that well yet), Haymitch, Agent Six of Hearts, Owen, Light (but not so evil and self-righteous), L, Matsuda, Sam, Grace, Isabel, Simon, Clary, Jace (but not so arrogant), Jenna, Septimus, Nuala, Paul, Sullivan, Luke, Bertie, Ariel, Nate, Caine, Sam, Piper, Sebastian (the cricket), Conrad, Bonnie, Billy, Walter, Ashley, Elam, Sapphira, Acacia, Professor Hamilton, the other characters from those books who I'm forgetting, Pudge, Alaska, the Colonel, Harry Potter, Hermione, Ron, Luna Lovegood, Neville, Dumbledore, Sirius, Ginny, Cedric, Mr. Weasley, Fred, George, Percy, Terra, Jacob, Link, Sophie, Howl, Calcifer, Haku, Chihiro, Wanda, Melanie, Jamie, Aang, Katara, Sokka, Toph, Zuko, Iroh, Hiccup, Toothless, Ronon, Reid, Hope, Vanille, not-Jason, Michael, Christopher, Stefan (but only minuscule-y), Shard, Alex, 108, and my sister.
(Note: if you want to know who these people are, look at my bookshelf, ask my sister, or a combination of both.)
(Note:This thing is subject to change.)

So there you have it. Me. At least, as close as you can come to summing up me.

(Note: I also like How to Train Your Dragon, but LiveJournal won't let me list it as an interest 'cause it's "over 4 words". Bleh.) (I also like using the word bleh.) (And I am in love with the How to Train Your Dragon Soundtrack.)
