I'm constantly thinking. . .normal, complicated, every day, day to day stuff; my brain is always engaged. Makes for a lot less sleep than I'd like and sometimes in conversation (or even when we're enjoying the quiet) saying really random stuff at odd times.
I'm curiously confused, untrusting, unwavering, doggedly loyal, fiercely protective, expressively passionate, a whole lot pervy and an insanely stubborn tomboy with a healthy dose of girlish femaleness and a tendency to cuss a bit more than I should and have what is probably an unhealthy addiction to Starbucks. I also tend to repeat myself sometimes.
I have a moderate form of S.A.D. (Social Anxiety Disorder)--which I often refer to as being almost debilitatingly shy, but with those that I know and talk to regularly, I'll talk your ear off.

|※ Name: ruari (Nickname: rawr)
※ Semantics: late-twenties, 5'3" 128lb quirky redhead with grey-blue/green eyes (central heterochromia) who is darkly pale/lightly tanned and has been softly inked and gently pierced & scattered generously with freckles & I'm told I have little feet
※ Random quote: you're gonna burn, calling my name
※ Prefers: being barefoot, the book to the movie, extra cheese, to be hurt with the truth, yoga shorts to pants, the company of animals to most people, dessert before dinner, sundays in bed, jeans and tees to dressing up, water versus land, and medium rare ribeye.
※ Believes in: committing random acts of kindness; never being afraid to tell someone (even a stranger) that they're beautiful or that they've inspired you; that the universe reveals secrets if you listen hard enough to hear them; that experiences are worth far more than things; that large kitchens, over-sized bathtubs and wooden floors should come with every house; that hugs can heal; that redheads are descended from cats.
|I'm a writer by birth, though not yet for profit. I'm always thinking, always scribbling something down whether it's lines of songs on scented parchment or random bits of brilliance on bubblegum wrappers.
I'm American even though quite often my writing reflects someone who seems British or perhaps Irish, (as I am -- my family hails from Ireland) as I use a lot of u's and terminology more associated with those who live across the pond. Truthfully, my language is all my own -- bastardized American English and the Queen's English as well as my own made-up words all intermingling in a way that I hope is more charming than frustrating. I blame my American schooling and my very early introduction and love of classic literature especially the Brontë sisters, Keats, Kipling, Austen and of course Shakespeare.
After reading a half dozen Twilight fanfics, I decided to see what else was out there and to my complete fangirlish surprise, I was able to find Southern Vampire Mysteries (AKA True Blood), The Vampire Diaries and Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Sadly, I've recently found that FF.Net seriously SUCKS for reasons pertaining to hypocrisy, site integrity and a general lack of respect towards authors & readers alike, which brings me here to livejournal, as I've already had tonnes of experience with it and I'm not limited by someone telling me what I can, and cannot, write. I now have my writing organized into one community, (or I will soon as I'm still organizing and this is my personal journal). For my TVD/SPN/BtVS/TB/TW fanfic go here -->> bloodnocturne
NOTE: I ofttimes wrote under the nickname of Ginger Youngblood (a nod to my hair colour and a translated family name) but as of 2014 I'll be using the name Arizona Dodge (a nod to my Dad) and most everything I've written has been copyrighted (where you see the © tag) so please do not think for one second that it is ok to plagiarize me or even copy and repost anything without my written permission, even the pieces written using other established literary characters, (the storyline/idea is protected by copyright -- click here for copyright laws).
|I don't really have a friending policy. If we have things in common or you just enjoy what I write, then by all means, feel free to add me. I tend to add most people back if we have enough in common or if we've chatted some. Also, if you're brave enough, come find me on Twitter (the link is above and below) or e-mail me. I'll always reply in turn.|
