grainne_the_hedgehog

Hi I'm Grainne. I'm probably older than most Twilight fans, but I loved the books and have some ideas I would like to share. I'm Irish, and my name is pronounced grawn-yah, for those of you unfamiliar with Gaelic names. It means 'beloved' according to most people, but others say it means 'she who must be feared.' >:-D If you add og to the end of my name you get grainneog, the Irish word for hedgehog, hence my pen-name. Also, I like hedgehogs. :) I use Irish names in my stories because I was wracking my brains trying to come up with names, and then I was inspired by Stephenie Meyer's use of Isabella, the name she would have given her daughter. I used names for my original characters that I would give my children, if I had any. *sighs* I'm gonna be such a yuppie mom. Kids with Irish names here tend to have yuppie parents. Trust me, I know... If anyone cares, and I don't blame you if you don't, apart from the Twilight novels I also like The Lord of the Rings, the Harry Potter books and am a HUGE Terry Pratchett fan. Actually, he's my favourite author, I love him even more than Stephenie Meyer (sorry). He's not to everyone's tastes, but I reccomend giving him a try, because it's so worth it if you share his sense of humour. I'd write Discworld fanfic, but it gives me a headache just thinking about it. If you're familiar with the series, you'll know why. I'm also a fan of George RR Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series, though I don't reccomend it for anyone under 16. Lots of violence and sex. Serious violence. I hear the first book is being made into a tv series. Cool! I loved Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials trilogy: Northern Lights/The Golden Compass, The Subtle Knife and The Amber Spyglass. And to those of you who think I'm going to hell for liking these books I say "Get a Life!" I'm a deist and damn proud of it. I don't wail on your beliefs so don't wail on mine. Or Philip Pullman's. He rocks, and he tells a damn good story. Okay, I'm done ranting now... So, if I haven't bored you to death yet, please give my story a chance, and please review. It will help me to get better. *cough cough* You do want me to get better, don't you? *puppy face*
