Name:flyakate
Location:United States of America
"Inside? I'm a poet. Outside? Shake, bad guys, shake."
- Det. Ray Kowalski, Due South


Had I the heavens' embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half-light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly, because you tread on my dreams.

W.B. Yeats, "He Wishes For the Cloths of Heaven"

Item the First: Who is Flyakate?
Let me explain. No, that would take to long; let me sum up. Among other things, Flyakate is a 20-something who is once again a Californian, this time of the Northern variety, who divides her time between teaching small children too short to ride rollercoasters (approx.) and reading applications and essays for high school students. And sleeping. Not to mention writing fanfic ;o)


Friends:
If you like what you see, feel free to friend me; most of my entries aren't locked unless they deal with RL things. Chances are I'll probably friend you back, but I only have so much time to read a friends list, so don't feel bad if I don't. Always feel free to say hi or leave a comment, as long as you play nicely with others ;o)


What Are the Habits of a Flyakate?
Currently (re)Reading: A Covert Affair: Julia Child and Paul Child in the OSS by Jennet Conant
Watching: Criminal Minds, NCIS, CSI: NY, Top Chef and Macgyver

Item the Fourth
There is no item the fourth. *smirkyface*


Item the Fic
I've written a growing handful of fanfics. They are helpfully, and perhaps obviously, tagged under fic: fanfic, as well as listed in one whole separated-by-fandom list here. A small number are also linked from specific community tables. The fics range in rating from gen (aww) to NC-17 (*shock!*) and are all marked as such. Enjoy and know that feedback is cherished and adored. I try really hard to thank you for it, too!
