The very first thing Angela Korra'ti ever wrote, at age 8, was a short story about a girl spirited away to rule over the leprechauns for a day. She progressed rapidly to pretending to take notes in class when she was actually writing novels, and writing fanfic before she had any idea what fanfic was! Music has been a part of her life almost as long, thanks to six years playing flute and piccolo in school band and an adulthood dabbling in flute, guitar, bouzouki, and mandolin. In anything she writes, music is likely to make an appearance.

Angela (Anna the Piper to her friends) lives in Kenmore, Washington, along with her partner and housemate, one cat, and a whole heck of a lot of computers and musical instruments. Despite the fact that she i

Tolkien. Their love story was always powerful to me, for a number of reasons: the strength with which Beren is smitten by his first sight of Luthien, how they pretty much set the archetype for elf/human pairings in Middle-Earth, and most of all, how Luthien is such a formidable, badass heroine who comes to the aid of her man when he needs her. They defend each other and it's beautiful. <3(less)

Hi Liz and thanks for the question!

Yes, the Sidhe are--well, not truly immortal, because they can actually be killed. But they live a very, _very_ long time, and for the vast majority of the Sidhe, it'll be impossible for most mortals to be able to gauge their ages just by looking. And any Sidhe that actually shows signs of what a mortal would parse as age will be truly _ancient_.

Also? Kendis is not exactly aging normally anymore either. ;)(less)

“Geeks are not the world’s rowdiest people. We’re quiet and introspective, and usually more comfortable communing with our keyboards or a good book than each other. Our idea of how to paint the
Emerald City red involves light liquor, heavy munchies, and marathon sessions of video games of the ‘giant robots shooting each other and everything else in sight’ variety. We debate competing lines of software or gaming consoles with passion, and dissect every movie, television show, and novel in the science fiction, fantasy, and horror genres.

With as many of us as there are in this town, people inevitably find ways to cater to us when we get in the mood to spend our hard-earned dollars. Downtown Seattle boasts grandiose geek magnets, like the Experience Music Project and the Experience Science Fiction museum, but it has much humbler and far more obscure attractions too, like the place we all went to for our ship party that evening: a hole-in-the-wall bar called the Electric Penguin on Capitol Hill. ”

“I am very tired of this Government, which I have never seen, and which is always insisting that I must do disagreeable things, and does no good to anybody.”
Naomi Novik, Throne of Jade

“It seems to me that if you wish to apply laws to us, it were only reasonable to consult us on them, and from what you have read to me about Parliament, I do not think any dragons are invited to go there”
