Ayoo, Amy here. Well, my name is Amanda, but you can call me Amy or Certified. Either one works. I'm a gray-asexual (experiences very little sexual attraction) andromasculine girl - that is, I'm a girl, but I dress like an androgynous boy. Suits and the like. It can be kind of confusing. To make this simple: I'm usually in some degree of a suit. If I'm not, I woke up late that day. Such is.

But enough on that. I'm a reader, writer, artist, feminist, speaker, debater. I love reading. Favorite books would be the Chronicles of Narnia, Percy Jackson and the Olympians, the Night Circus, Pride and Prejudice, Lord of the Rings, etc...not necessarily in that order, but the Narnia books will always hold a special place in my heart. There's also an unhealthy obsession with bad fanfiction. My Immortal, the Prayer Warriors, I love it all. So much. God bless the Holy United States of God-fearing America. Folk music is taking over my life. Mumford and Sons will destroy me in the end, just you watch. Webseries are super important to me (new media is fascinating!), but especially the Lizzie Bennet Diaries, and that influences what and how I write a lot.

By now, most of what I write is either Retreat or Circus. I have a few newer projects, but the Retreat and the Circus are kind of my life, so let's talk about them. Onward!

Ongoing Projects

The Retreat of the Gods is the story of a group of demigods that form out of necessity of punishment; Amy is banished from Olympus to start a training site for illegitimate children of the Gods. After her initial punishment - 2 years - is over, she decides to stay and the Retreat grows from a training facility to a home for wayward children.

The Underground Circus is the story of a group of peculiars that gather out of desire for freedom; after abandoning the Soviet military for fear of being caught as supernatural creatures, Anya and Liev return to the Circus Anya visited as a child. Shortly after, they are given the Circus by the owner. Taking on new names - the Lady Master and the Commander, respectively - they shoulder the Circus and it's oddities.

LadyInteresting and I work on most things together. She helps me with my Retreat, I help her with her Circus - it works.

Yes, I am reviving this account. Exciting! But I really want to do it over, make it less...2011-y? So I'm wiping it clean, starting a-new, getting a fresh breath of air. I'm not entirely sure what all deviation-wise is going to stay, but most of my more recently (2013 and beyond), is probably pretty good to stay. 

Who am I? My name is Amy, and it's a pleasure to meet you. Others call my Certified, and that's perfectly fine with me. I am a reader, writer, artist, feminist, speaker, debater. Writing is what I want to do with my life, however that may manifest itself, but I love art and I love creating things. Book sculpting is a current fascination of mine, and I hope to get the pictures of those uploaded very soon! Watercolor paintings are my most common media as of right now, and I wouldn't have it any other way. 

Aside from that, I am in speech and debate and adore it from the bottom of my heart. Folk music is taking over my life, though, send help. When I'm not speech-ing or art-ing or author-ing, I'm usually just chillin' with my friends. Long distance relationships, specifically friendships, make up the majority of my relationships at this point, and I will fight you if you throw any amount of shade on them. 

By now, most of my art (visual and written) is original work, though I do dabble in fanfiction on occassion. I'm not delusional; I know most of my followers are here for the fanworks. That's cool, though. I hope one day you check out my original stuff, but you know - you do you. The rest will follow. 

Over and out.

Dear Nazi sympathizer,

                                      Why do you oppress so many Jews? Don’t think that I don’t know what you are doing; I can see an Aryan from a mile away. You get so much joy out of murder don’t you? This genocide is so much fun, isn’t it? You scum. Why don’t you go to Hell where you belong and create your “perfect race” there? Racist Aryan garbage.


                                                                               Someone who actually cares about the well being of the Jewish people.
