I post women's fashion and shopping ideas that I come across on my internet travels. Otherwise, I post things that suit my fancy - especially the Avengers, Tom Hiddleston, Matt Bomer, Lucy Liu, the Hunger Games, and adorable puppies and kitties. My new goal in life is to someday look as fabulous as Alicia Florrick on the Good Wife in my everyday life.
I used to answer vicarious shopping questions and other fashion questions - but those questions can now be submitted at my website at http://tcfkag.weebly.com .
I never do these … but who am I to deny artielu anything?
Selfie: Not gonna happen folks - my career as a lawyer makes keeping a professional internet presence extremely important. (And not to sound too much like your parents - but its never too EARLY to think about this - I’m not talking predators or something; I’m talking about your bosses, colleagues, or clients searching you.)
Food: ALL THE FOOD. I studied abroad in Italy and travelled a great in Europe. I have also taken up cooking as a bit of a hobby since college. So food is my jam. But my three favorites are all pretty old-school, simple, comfort foods: spaghetti with meat sauce (or lasagna), Shepherd’s Pie, and bread pudding.
Drink: Vitamin Water Energy and lemonade.
Book: This like picking a child - but in terms of number of readings, I’d have to go with the Arrows series by Mercedes Lackey.
Favorite Author: Mercedes Lackey, JK Rowling, Roald Dahl.
Song: That is hard to say - right now for songs stuck in my head I’d say Timber by Keisha but all time probably Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee or Take me for longing by Allison Krauss & Union Station Band, Our Love is Here to Stay by Louis Armstrong, and a bunch of others.
Movies: Avengers, Pitch Perfect (for recent movies) and Usual Suspects, Goonies, Sliding Doors (if you haven’t seen it, see it NOW) and Love Actually (I know, I know - but whatever - it means Christmas to me.)
TV Show: Of all time - Veronica Mars (5eva bestest), Firefly, West Wing, and Friends. Currently on the air - Teen Wolf, Game of Thrones, Sleepy Hollow, and Rookie Blues (I feel like I’m missing something but I don’t know what!)
Bands: Allison Krauss and the Union Station Band, Beatles, No Doubt, Destiny’s Child, the Roots, and the Dixie Chicks and some others….I’m old. Don’t judge.
Solo Artist: Adelle, Beyonce, Jason Mraz, Sara Bareilles, Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, and the Dixie Chicks. Oh, and Mos Def, Dar Williams, and Ella Fitzgerald. Eclectic I know - I just like what I like.
Place: THIS IS HARD. Probably Siena, Italy because I studied there. But the Big Island, Asheville NC, and Vienna, Austria really compete.
School Subject: Political Theory.
Male Actors: Matt Bomer, Tom Hiddleston, Idris Elba, and ALL the Avengers.
Female Actors: Scarlett Johansson, Lupita Nyong’o, Lucy Liu and Natalie Dormer, Emma Watson, and Kristen Bell. Lots of others too.
Best Friend: Her code name is Eli and she was my freshman roommate and is still my best friend today.
Siblings: Older brother by five years - he’s absurdly awesome and is so great to me.
Dream Job: Attorney at the Federal Trade Commission in Washington, DC.
Political Ideology: Very liberal … fairly moderate compared to my undergrad and law school or Europe but quite liberal for the US spectrum.
Religion: Raised Roman Catholic and am still quite drawn to the tradition and pomp of it all - but I’m also quite disillusioned with the church as a whole. But I do attend a fantastic liberal catholic church where I live, but only periodically.
Tattoos: no. Not only would my mother murder me (regardless of my age) but I also worry about infection risk.
Piercings: None - I’ve gotten my ears pierced a few times but they’ve gotten horrendously infected every time - I think my Crohn’s isn’t friendly with piercings so I’ve given up.
Languages: English; conversational in Spanish and Italian.
Reason Behind URL: It is my username on Corporette and stands for The Commenter Formerly Known As Guest.
Reason Behind Icon: Picture I took at one of my favorite places on Earth - the bungalow we stayed at on the Big Island at sundown.

Zoe and Wash, while deeply forever ridiculously in love, are not drift compatible.
Zoe and Mal are drift compatible.
Kaylee and Wash are drift compatible, and they have the best piloted, sweetest running jaeger ever been seen in the ‘verse - the best piloted, sweetest running jaeger ever to run away from a kaiju.
(also, the sudden thought of River Tam in a jaeger is rutting terrifying)
She hung from the ceiling, a perfect, motionless sculpture of a girl in the process of becoming a fruitbat. Simon glanced up at her periodically, both checking that she was still present, and reassuring himself that the grind of the machines overhead would keep her from hearing what he had to say. It wasn’t that he was keeping secrets from her; River knew everything about her condition, sometimes more than he did. It was that she didn’t like being talked about, and he respected that.
"They weren’t trying to unlock psychic powers or anything like that, no matter what the rumors say," he said, his voice shaking slightly. Kaylee shifted her weight from foot to foot, disturbed by that tremor in his words. Simon Tam was the best K-scientist she’d ever worked with. For him to sound scared…
"Those people, those monsters…" Simon paused to take a deep breath, relaxing a little at the taste of oil on his tongue. Enough time spent with Kaylee had turned grime into perfume. "They were trying to set up a neural bridge inside a single mind. They wanted to do away with the need for drift compatibility, and privatize the Pilots. Imagine being able to market Jaegers for domestic and commercial use, because you only needed one Pilot, and that Pilot was so doped and dependent that they could never leave you."
"That’s horrific," whispered Kaylee. "They…they messed up her brain tryin’ to do something as can’t be done?"
"Oh, it can be done," said Simon grimly. "They succeeded.
"My sister is in constant Drift with herself."
YOU GET ME THE BEST PRESENTS <333
I hate that moment between “I will write fic to amuse a person” and that person responding because WHAT IF I WROTE IT WRONG.
