Starbright (Pseudonym)
Age: 26
Country: Finland, Vasa
Occupation: Child psychologist, but I'd like to be a researcher or a wrangler! Being a psychologist is the reason I can't use my real name. My boyfriend says if any of the parents or caretakers would read what I write they'd lock me in. Guess he's right.
Favorite character: KID, he's my Jungian archetype of malehood.
Favorite fanfic: I have to say Kathleen's "When Shadows Fade". it was the first one I read and it knocked the air outta me! Still holds a special place in my heart and I've reread it a couple of times (like 5 or 6). It was kind of the first love, never completely leaves you. Then there's Kirst and Joanna, Becca. Aimee, Beth and Nesciri - don't get me started or the kilobytes on your account will be all used up! I've never seen so much talent gathered in one place before. I take special pride in Becca because I more or less begged her to post her first story which I got the priviledge to read first. Still do occasionally :-)
Salad: Greek Salad, onion rings, feta-cheese, tomatoes and olives. must mostly cheese. I'm getting hungry here!

    Kid, and Jimmy (but, oh is Stephen Baldwin fine)

D.) your favorite TYR character: Kid and Lou
E.) your favorite fanfic(s): Don't even get me started...let's see...Captives, by Joanna. That was
    the first story I read, and it is still one of my favorites. Ghosts of the Past by Joanna, What
    Might Have Been by Becca, Parallel With Death by Kirsten, Jack Fell Down, by Sidney, a
    certain story by Starbright (girl, you know what it is!:), way too many others to name!
F.) what you like on your salad when and if you eat them (I've noticed that no two salads are alike
    and I figured it's a more personal tidbit that's not too personal, in case you're wondering about
    the salad thing!) Spring Greens (Mesclun)...never iceberg lettuce, I hate that! Olive oil and vinigar or
    Raspberrry Vinagrette dressing...or Cucumbers, Roma Tomatoes, Spinach, and Feta Cheese, with Oil and
    Vinigar...or Caesar salad. I'm very picky about the quality of my salads!:)

    vinaigrette, Feta cheese, red onions (first soaked in salt them washed) black olives, tomatoes, mushrooms for

Age:  23, I'll be 24 in November
Where I live: Right now, with my dad's mom in the small town of DuBois, Pennsylvania (USA).  Mom and
        my brother live just south of Punxsutawney, PA -- yes, the home of the groundhog and no, they didn't film the
        movie there!
Occupation/ what I wish I did:  I'm  part time student at Penn State, majoring in English, as well as a health
        care aide at the behavioral health unit at our local hospital.  What I'd love to do is get paid to write fanfic
        *sigh*, but I'll probably end up teaching English lit in a high school somewhere out west (like Colorado or
Favorite TYR character:  I really love them all, although my fanfics tend to center around Kid and Lou.  If I
        had to pick a favorite though, I'd have to say Kid.  Guess I identify with him more or something.  Besides, he's
        just so danged cute!!  :0)
Fav fanfic:  Pretty much anything Kid and Lou centered, although I like my fair share of fics about the others as
        well.  I won't list any, for fear of forgetting someone and hurting someone's feelings.  Suffice it to say, that if
        it's a TYR fanfic, I'll read it.
My fanfic I'm proudest of:  I've gotten some wonderful feedback on all of my stories, some extremely touching
        about "Confessions" in particular.  However, my personal favorite so far has to be "Through a Glass Darkly."
         It's helped me deal with a lot of personal demons and live out a dream I could never see fulfilled in real life.
Ingredients on my salads:  On the rare occasions that I get a hankering for one -- lettuce, spinach,
        mushrooms, broccoli, cheese, croutons, and ranch or honey mustard dressing.  I also love Caesar salads which
        I tended to eat a lot when I lived at main campus.
