A taste of love in a simple way

In silent moments, imagine you here

Where you used to be, there is a hole in the world, which I find myself constantly walking around in the daytime, and falling in at night. I miss you like hell. - Edna St. Vincent Millay

Liz, twenty-five years old, journalist by day, sci-fi fangirl by night. (And secretly during the day, too; just don't tell my employers.) Has a degree in Journalism and a minor in History from Carleton University. Was born in the United States (Washington, D.C., to be specific) but grew up in Ottawa, Canada, and most of the time I love it here. I'm owned by three cats - Minnie, Misty, and Samuel T. Anders (after the BSG character, yes). I once spent a month in San Francisco, and I consider the Bay Area of California to be my home at heart. I also have part of my soul in Vancouver, where my best friend and my goddaughters live.

I have a tendency to be annoyingly optimistic, especially when I probably should not be, and am usually smiling. Quiet but outgoing, I consider myself an extrovert even as I value my "me time." I'm bisexual and have had both male and female partners. I am involved in far too many fannish pursuits. I am obsessive about my two "Girlfriends", Padmé Amidala and Kara Thrace - my username is for them. I'm a multishipper, and I make no apologies for being so. I also have a fine appreciation for the art of the rant. And I adore hockey like it's going out of style.

Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears
Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
Finds and shall find me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.

- Invictus, William Ernest Henley
