Hihi out there, Alicia-x-Itachi here!

I'm a 22-year-old American glasses-wearing enthusiast of all things fantasy. I've a passion for writing and reading, and while I am currently working on original fiction I intend to publish, I still do a lot of fanfic as an endeavor to hone my authorial skills.

My fandoms include Pokémon (Black/White are the best, though I despise the anime), Legend of Zelda, Final Fantasy (IV is the best), Fire Emblem, Golden Sun, and (reluctantly) Naruto (meaning, I hate the show and manga, but occasionally appreciate other people's fancharacters). I'm mostly into Runescape at the moment though.

As far as books go--and I'm an avid reader--I quite like The Lord of the Rings, The Chronicles of Narnia, the Tortall cycle by Tamora Pierce, and anything by Robin Hobb or Diana Wynne Jones.

DB: Ship War Free Zone 2of2 by DarkJediPrincess

Other little details:

:bulletpurple: I love Disney animated movies very much. Beauty and the Beast and Aladdin are the best ones.
:bulletpurple: I don't watch much TV, and I prefer cartoons to live action (as well as 2D cartoons to CGI animation).
:bulletpurple: I have a huge weakness for chocolate anything.
:bulletpurple: I take a long time to get anything done, though I wish I didn't.
:bulletpurple: I'm a sucker for cute things.
:bulletpurple: I like making things for other people--I like to see them happy!
:bulletpurple: I'm fluent in sarcasm, and I like to wisecrack and joke a lot of the time.
:bulletpurple: I love the sci-fi/fantasy genres because I am fascinated by things that are impossible in real life.
:bulletpurple: I am a total mage fetishist--I love all kinds of magic and magic users.
:bulletpurple: I have an odd fondness for the cliché of fantasy protagonists always being teenagers. Can't save the world if you're a day over twenty :P
:bulletpurple: I have a strong preference for female protagonists, and I'm really sick of the Smurfette principle.
:bulletpurple: I would also love to see more darker-skinned main characters, especially in SF/F. It's boring if everyone is as paste-white as I am!
:bulletpurple: I really, really like to ship interracial pairs. I am not just talking about human skin colors, either--I mean humans and nonhumans. Or any sentient humanoid races, really.
:bulletpurple: I'd like to see more focus on family and friendship, not just romance. Those kinds of love are important too.
:bulletpurple: Love triangles suck! Especially since most of the time it's really friggin' obvious who is the clear victor and who is the third wheel.
:bulletpurple: Everybody needing to have a love interest or a One Twu Wuv is equally annoying.
:bulletpurple: I think yuri is better than yaoi.
:bulletpurple: I often crush on fictional characters. Despite my username, Itachi Uchiha is no longer one of those. In fact I'm actually kind of sick of him...
:bulletpurple: I'm very introverted and socially awkward, so it's very hard for me to reach out to people. I'm also overly nervous about pissing people off.
:bulletpurple: I'm my own worst critic, sometimes too much so.
:bulletpurple: I'm very very happy to receive good feedback and criticism. What'd I do right? What'd I do wrong? What could I do better? I really wanna know! Even a big long speech about how much I suck and why is better than a one-word comment ^^;
:bulletpurple: If you're happy to talk to me, I'm happy to talk to you!
:bulletpurple: I do not openly discuss my personal life or problems for numerous reasons.
:bulletpurple: I'm Roman Catholic, and I feel very strongly about my beliefs. However, I do not wish my faith or my political alignment to get in the way of a friendship with those who might believe otherwise.
:bulletpurple: I am rather cynophobic--I pretty much despise dogs.
:bulletpurple: Bats are the most adorable animal ever.
:bulletpurple: Sensory overloads of any kind--usually obnoxious loud noises combined with crowds--make me get really upset. That's perhaps the biggest reason I hate parties unless there's decent food.
:bulletpurple: I really hate crowds, or being randomly touched.
:bulletpurple: Sometimes I say really dumb things, and sometimes I'm slow to pick up on things.

Please, do not thank me for the fave on my page. I faved your piece because I liked the art and wanted to see it again. If my faving your picture means a lot to you, then consider that it would mean a lot to me if you faved or gave me feedback on my art. I also do not give a shit about llama badges.

The difference between reality and fiction is that fiction has to make sense.

30 Day OC Meme + Happy New Year

Journal Entry: Sun Jan 4, 2015, 4:43 PM

Whoo, tag journal time again! Thanks, Nerd-Artist23. Well, while I'm trying to work on all 85 of my projects (including that damn book I should've been working on), reading a boatload of books, and watching Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic (which I am enjoying and highly recommend), I might as well put up a journal in between.

As most of my watchers have noticed, I've been writing a whole lot of RS fanfic lately. Since I've been spotting a few lurkers poking their heads in my little corner of DA, who I presume were checking out my RS stuff, this little journal might be handy for them, as well as my more noticeable readers. It might also help a bit if someone ever wants to write anything for me, you know?

I did write a little profile for Jaina here, but it's a bit minimal, you know? So this little meme thing is going to be considerably more detailed.

Okay, okay, I'll shut up now and get on with it. No, I am not tagging anyone, but as always with tag journals, anyone's free to pilfer this meme if they like.

1.) Describe your character's relationship with their mother or their father, or both. Was it good? Bad? Were they spoiled rotten, ignored? Do they still get along now, or no?

Jaina was the daughter of the only Guthixians in Lumbridge. Her father, Daelin, was a jack of trades, who worked many odd jobs around Lumbridge; in his youth he had been an adventurer and a pupil of Xenia's, but his habits of overspending and going drinking forced him to have to give up that path. He cared deeply for his children and encouraged them to learn a balanced skillset. Her mother, Phrynna, was an ex-druidess originally from Taverley, skilled at gardening and summoning, who mostly stayed at home to support and raise her children.

Jaina largely had a happy home life, although the family struggled financially during her early years of life; she adored her parents and got along well with them. She would sometimes get into trouble at school precisely because she never took hearing her parents insulted well. Her curiosity and propensity for boredom could get her into trouble, as could her squabbles with her younger brother, but she always loved and revered her parents deeply. Had they lived longer, she believes she would have told them everything about her adventures as she went.

2.) What are your characters most prominent physical features?

Her bright purple hair is the first thing anyone would notice at first glance. Other than that, she has pale gray eyes and a heart-shaped face, and is slender, fairly well endowed, and slightly tall for her age.

3.) Name one scar your character has, and tell us where it came from. If they don't have any, is there a reason?

Despite all the damage she's taken, she hasn't sustained lasting physical scars; psychological scars on the other hand... To name a couple of those, she always feels uncomfortable going to Falador because her parents died there, and she has a deep, burning hatred of dagannoths because their kings killed her husband.

4.) How vain is your character? Do they find themselves attractive?

Jaina is highly vain about her appearance and is very picky about what she'll wear. She hates trousers and helmets and steadfastly refuses to wear them, and prefers not to wear hats or hoods due to being vain about her hair.

She is certainly aware that she's pretty, which fuels her desire to look good, though she believes that there are many women far more beautiful than she is. She also doesn't openly brag about her looks or dress in ways that are too show-off or revealing; her vanity is largely a personal issue.

5.) What's your character's ranking on the KINSEY SCALE?

I'd have to say 0, though I might add that she was completely uninterested in romance at all (and considered sexual relations to be gross) until she started courting Prince Brand. I don't see her ever considering the possibility that other women could even see her that way--she was entirely oblivious to Zanik's feelings. (For that matter, she's the sort who can't tell if someone's into her unless they flat-out say so.)

6.) Describe your character's happiest memory.

I'd probably have to say her happiest memory is of a day trip with her father to the market of Al Kharid and the Mage Training Arena when she was ten. She was excited to practice her magic more extensively than she got to do at school, and she was fascinated by the sights, sounds, and smells of the marketplace--but the best part for her was getting to go out and see the world together with her father. She has a particular fondness for kebabs because they remind her of that day.

7.) Is there one event or happening your character would like to erase from their past? Why?

Jaina really, really regrets having stolen the ruby toy dragon for the Thieves' Guild and wishes she could reverse having done it. She largely only wanted to learn thieving so she would know how to disarm traps and escape locked rooms--but while she had no qualms about returning the tribal totem that Lord Handelmort had pilfered, she hated the fact that she was responsible for that poor dwarf craftsman losing so much money and getting no pay for his hard work. (Seriously Jagex, you made us steal from an artist who's likely dependent on commissions to eat? That's a major asshole move...)

She also wishes she could forget/erase Sliske's attempt to "collect" her--well, she wishes she never had to see him again, but that event in particular gave her nightmares for awhile and is part of the reason she fears Sliske so much.

8.) Day of Favorites! What's your character's favorite ice cream flavor? Color? Song? Flower?

Ice cream: Choc-ice
Color: Purple and silver
Song: One she heard the desert bandits singing from time to time, which apparently dates back to the days of the empire
Flower: Violets

9.) Who does your character trust?

She does trust her friends for the most part, but there's a lot (mostly related to the whole Zaros thing) she wouldn't tell them. While she does still greatly trust Ozan, Ariane, and to a lesser extent Xenia (she was never very close to Sir Owen), she wouldn't share her deepest secrets with them. She trusts in her Zarosian allies as well, though none are quite as close as Azzanadra is (and she's kind of afraid to anger Char or Nex). She is also particularly close to Zanik and King Vargas.

10.) Can you define a turning point in your character's life? Multiples are acceptable.

The most notable one involves Jaina searching for the four diamonds (the events of Desert Treasure). While she likely would've gone searching after meeting Asgarnia Smith anyway, she was partly motivated by a need for money after spending all her savings on a new outfit. However, once she came across the Kharidian Bandit Camp and spoke to Eblis, she wanted to find the diamonds not to make money, but to rescue the trapped hero Eblis spoke of, as well as help the bandits in their time of need. Not only was she extremely grateful for the knowledge of the ancient spellbook, she also converted to Zarosianism not long after. With her conversion, she became considerably quieter and more secretive, and over time developed skill at choosing her words in such a way that she would still be telling the truth, while leaving certain details it was best not to divulge out.

11.) Is there an animal you equate with your character?

I guess I have to say a cat, for the curiosity... that, and her first pet did happen to be a purple cat.

12.) How is your character with technology? Super savvy, or way behind the times? Letters or email?

Jaina is a magical prodigy, so she's largely up to date with the latest magical things, and her understanding of runes is quite deep as well. Being so well-traveled, she's also familiar with magic and technology that most humans in Gielinor wouldn't necessarily know of--gnome gliders, dwarven engineering, elven crystal singing etc.

13.) What does your character's bed look like when he/she wakes up? Are the covers off on one side of the bed, are they all curled around a pillow, sprawled everywhere? In what position might they sleep?

She has a tendency to hog most of the blankets when alone, particularly on a cold night. She tends to sleep on her side, curling up with either the blankets or, on the occasions she isn't alone, a considerably more comfortable presence. Either way, the demon butler nearly always has to straighten everything out when he makes the bed.

14.) How does your character react to temperature changes such as extreme heat and cold?

She doesn't exactly handle herself well at either extreme, especially if it's a sudden change, but she can handle the cold a bit better than the heat (you know, ice user and all).

15.) Is your character an early morning bird or a night owl?

Night owl

16.) Are there any blood relatives that your character is particularly close with, besides the immediate ones? Cousins, Uncles, Grandfathers, Aunts, et cetera. Are there any others that your character practically considers a blood relative?

Not really. She has an aunt in Yanille, her father's sister, who she lived with during her time studying at the Wizards' Guild, but she doesn't visit her often. She also became estranged from her brother after their parents' death, and they still are rarely in contact.

She is, however, very close to her father-in-law King Vargas, and has been since she was first engaged to Brand. She makes an effort to visit Miscellania at least twice a month to check on both him and her subjects.

17.) What's your character's desk/workspace look like? Are they neat or messy?

She has the essentials scattered across the desk--hairbrush, journal, pencil, washing bowl, small toiletries for morning clean-up. It generally only looks neat if the demon butler has tended to her room.

18.) Is your character a good cook? What's their favorite recipe, whether they're good or not? (Microwave mac-and-cheese applies.)

Jaina is a fairly good cook, and particularly likes making sweets. Her personal favorite is either chocolate cake or chocolate bombs.

19.) What's your character's preferred means of travel?


20.) Does your character have any irrational fears?

Most of her fears are quite reasonable (angry Zilyana, pissing off gods, Sliske), though she has two particular fears that can be considered a bit over the top. She is positively terrified of archers or crossbowmen--particularly if the crossbow wielder might have bakriminel bolts, but she did also feel a bit uneasy fighting alongside Zanik because of her fear. She also fears dogs and refuses to raise them, despite her skill as a summoner and the fact that she tames and raises more unruly and fearsome pets than that (coughTzRek-Jadcough), because one attacked her and her brother when they were younger.

21.) What would your character's CUTIE MARK be?

The blue quest cape star, of course. (If I might TMI a bit here, I imagine she has quite a few nightgowns and underwear adorned with the blue quest cape star.)

22.) If your character could time travel, where would they go?

Not counting Meeting History? She would revisit her childhood, when there wasn't a huge ugly crater near Lumbridge and the east side of town was still intact and not overrun by goblins; she greatly misses the woodlands that were where the crater is. She would also want to visit the Second Age and see what Senntisten was like, since Azzanadra told her a good deal about it.

23.) Is your character superstitious?

Not particularly; she's rather curious and prefers to seek knowledge for herself and explore the world closely--though she does sometimes wonder how she managed to survive things.

24.) What might your character's ideal romantic partner be?

She would've imagined that at the very least, it would be someone who would support her desire to go adventuring and not keep her tied down at home, though she did hope for someone she could go adventuring together with, and wished to show her future children the wonders of the world. She certainly wasn't aiming to bag a royal, much less a Mahjarrat.

I wouldn't call Brand ideal, even though they did fall in love naturally and get along well, in part because she had to pretend his music and poetry weren't awful. (She did come to appreciate how it always had heart, effort, and love put into it, though.) Azzanadra does come closer to her initial vision, in the sense that he was much more directly involved in her adventures, though I wouldn't call him ideal either; "interesting" is more the word I'm looking for.

25.) Describe your character's hands. Are they small, long, calloused, smooth, stubby?

Her hands are long, smooth and slender, with long fingers and short, usually very clean fingernails. She tries to keep them as clean as she can, when she can, though she doesn't always succeed.

26.) Second day of favorites! Favorite comfort food, favorite vice, favorite outfit, favorite hot drink, favorite time of year, and favorite holiday.

Comfort food: Pork pies or kebabs

Vice: Overindulgence of sweets

Outfit: Her usual Third Age-mage's getup for adventuring; a fancier blouse-skirt combo for time off

Hot drink: Chocolate Saturday

Time of year: Spring or early winter--she likes seeing both the first snow and the trees blossoming

Holiday: Her birthday

27.) Pick two songs that describe your character at two different points of their life, and explain why you chose them.

For her first days as a proper adventurer: "On My Father's Wings"--Quest for Camelot (I don't care what the Nostalgia Critic said, I like that movie)

I think it fits because Jaina was excited to see the world and do interesting things, and she was partially inspired by the stories her father used to tell of his adventures. She was also bored after four years of living and studying in Yanille. (Fun fact: I imagine her voice to sound more or less like Kayley's in the movie.)

For The World Wakes/the start of the Sixth Age: "Memories of Guthix"

Yes, it's purely instrumental, but no lyrics are needed here. Not only does it fit Guthix and his tragic backstory, it also fits Jaina in this case--the event turned her life and her world upside down, severely upsetting her to the point that she went into blue screen of death mode for a short while (the Battle of Lumbridge really, really did not help with that either), and her views of Guthix and what it meant to follow him were completely shattered. While she did mourn his loss, she also felt let down and betrayed, as well as hopeless because she was now in way over her head with being expected to protect the world in place of a god.

28.) If your character's life was a genre, what would it be?

High-fantasy action-adventure, with its moments of lighthearted comedy, intense drama, fluffy romance, and even a bit of horror here and there.

29.) How does your character smell? Do they wear perfume or cologne?

It depends on whatever she was doing that day and how intense her adventuring was. While she doesn't wear perfume, she does use floral-scented soap to wash up.

30.) And finally: Write a letter to your character, from yourself.


I'm sure you know how unbelievably lucky you are, in a lot of aspects. Part of the reason for that is me. Sure, Jagex may have laid the groundwork, just as the Elder Gods created Gielinor, but just as mortal life truly made the world what it is, I've... ahem, "borrowed" the Elder Pencil from the folks at Jagex and used it to make you into what you are.

Now, the way I handle the Elder Pencil is hardly masterful. (My hands aren't that big, you know!) I may have practiced for years, but I'm still an amateur and could always use improvement, and there's stuff I'm not terribly good at. I seriously don't think I could write a decent showdown with the Elder Gods that would be tense, exciting, emotional, and rewarding on my own! (Though I do worry about Jagex potentially bungling it too...) But I digress. What I mean to say is, you should count yourself lucky that the Elder Pencil happens to be in my hands, and not someone else's.

I can't make everything all sunshine and roses--that'd be boring, and you know it. If there weren't conflict, there wouldn't be much adventure, now would there? But... you're lucky that my style leans more towards cute, fluffy, and sweet. You're lucky that I like to focus on the funny, lighthearted moments just as much as the dramatic. You're lucky that I'm not really one for angst or excessive violence. You're lucky that I didn't take away all your accomplishments and turn you into some boring idiot who needs a man to live. You're lucky that I hate love triangles, and that I don't think romance is the only kind of love that matters. You're lucky that I think that having the Great Revision successfully happen would be really shitty storytelling and a huge middle finger to everyone who gave a damn about the storyline and characters. And you're very lucky that I consider happy endings a suitable reward for enduring and overcoming all the crap that gets thrown at you.

You're very lucky, yes. But don't get overconfident about it. I have to keep my audience's interest, few though they may be, and I have important plans just as Zaros does, so you can expect to have to go through many more pitfalls and perils! Happy endings--and quest rewards--have to be earned first, you know.

No, I didn't see Sliske anywhere, why would you ever think that,


Oh, and before I go, happy new year to you all, and I hope you all had a merry Christmas, as well as a merry whatever-else-you-might celebrate!

Hi. Wanted to know how you were doing.

I'm holding up alright for the most part--part 2 of my latest fic (which might end up being a three-parter) is a bit slow in coming. I also need to catch up on commenting on a lot of fics (yours included; I am so far pleased with Brides of the Kou Empire in particular!)

Hey, sorry for kind of disappearing again. :(

Are your technical issues any better at the moment?
moonlitinuyasha1985 Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2015
Don't worry about it.:cling:

Yes, for now at least.

That's a relief! Here's hoping you don't have to deal with more severe technical difficulties.

Hello, and thanks for the fav on Mahjarrat Mother.

As one of the people who have been lurking here (re journal) I've been coming here for the fic, but I'm bad at making even borderline intelligent comments.

Yay, it's always nice to know I have new readers! :typerhappy: Well, feel free to have fun with the fave button, even if comments are a pain to come up with. :dalove:

I'm doing alright. Have a lot I need to work on O_O

And yes, I did, and I read them. I simply haven't replied yet, is all.

How are you feeling?:)

A little bit blue at the moment, but mostly alright.

You'll be glad to know I've started watching Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic lately!

Is everything all right?:(
Alicia-x-Itachi Featured By Owner Dec 5, 2014  Hobbyist Writer
For the most part, yes. No serious or life-threatening real-life issues over here; just was feeling a bit down most of last month.

You and me, both.:(
