Welcome to the town of 'Ramble' - Population, me

Incessant ramblings of one of those writer-type peoples

My real name is Roz, and this blog is basically just somewhere that I can put my thoughts when I'm not using them ;-)

I'm an aspiring writer, and I'm currently attempting to hone my skills by writing fan fiction, my favourite fandoms for which would be Blood Ties and Angel (hopefully I will be doing a Legend of the Seeker fic too, if I get the time!). Some of my work may appear on here...so if I do decide to put some up, I hope you like it! Anyway, feel free to check out my fanfiction.net profile which I'll link to below.

In terms of music, my favourite bands/artists are Muse, Portishead, Garbage, Radiohead, KT Tunstall, The Cardigans, Marilyn Manson, Deftones and many, many others! I also love Baroque music, particularly the work of Purcell, Bach, Vivaldi and Scarlatti. I *hate* Handel with a fiery passion ;)

My favourite books are 'Bareback' by Kit Whitfield, 'Northern Lights' and 'The Firework Maker's Daughter' by Philip Pullman, 'A Room of One's Own' by Virginia Woolf, 'Brave New World' by Aldous Huxley, 'The Handmaid's Tale' by Margaret Atwood, the Harry Potter series and my guilty pleasure, the Anita Blake series by Laurel K Hamilton (no title pun intended, LKH fans!! lol)

Favourite movies is a difficult one, but I would have to say Goodfellas, Casino, Kill Bill vol 1 and 2, Pulp Fiction, Reservoir Dogs, The Craft, Practical Magic (another guilty pleasure!), The Hours and...The Others. I think that'll do for now...But I also love Chicago and Moulin Rouge, just in case you wanted to know ;)

TV shows I love would be True Blood (just awesome and full of sexehz), The L Word, Blood Ties, Legend of the Seeker, South Park, The Simpsons and Family Guy (plus many more besides!). I watch all of these shows for the plot of course; I definitely don't watch them for Kristin Bauer von Straten/Anna Paquin/Deborah Ann Woll/Evan Rachel Wood, Jennifer Beals/Laurel Holloman/Rachel Shelley (OMG so gawjus)/Sarah Shahi etc etc, Christina Cox, Bridget Regan/Tabrett Bethell...I am interested in the plots of these shows only ;)

I'm also a computer games freak! My favourite games would be BloodRayne 2 (again with the vampire 'non'-obsession hehe), GTA: San Andreas, Guitar Hero II and III, We Love Katamari and Canis Canem Edit (or Bully as it's known in America). I love Halo: Combat Evolved and Vampire, The Masquerade - Bloodlines for PC as well.

Mostly, I spend my time writing, agonising over stupidly fine details when redrafting stuff and surfing the internet at silly o'clock in the morning!
