Stella Coulson - Author of Whitby After Dark Volume 1. I am a green eyed brunette (sometimes red) who loves writing both stories and poetry. Currently working on a fantasy/paranormal novel. I've been told on more than one occasion that I am weird (thank you very much) which I don't mind being, now that I'm grown up. I've given up long ago what people think of me. I am a big reader - I adore books, painting, writing, poetry and meditation. I am a contradiction when it comes to science vrs spirituality. I have in the past been spiritual which in principle doesn't adhere to Science, but at the same time I'm a keen Darwinist and a believer in Evolution. I adore Steampunk and I prefer Tesla to Edison. If eternal life ever was possible and came into fruition, I'd spend it learning all I could and watching the world evolve, technology expand and possibly seeing mankind colonize on other worlds. I would see as much of the world as I could and learn new languages, skills and abilities. Would only accept such a gift though if I could share it with someone - For I'd rather live a short life having loved than a eternity without it. My Philosophy... I believe happiness depend on those we help and who we bring into our lives, than material superficial gain (for that is fleeting). I adore animals, particularly cats and dogs. To learn from others to move forward and (try lol) not wallow in self indulgent pity. I aspire to be a better person and the friends I have help me be who I am each and every day. I adore many types of music from industrial, metal, rock, blues, orchestral to musicals. Some of my favorite musicals being Phantom of the Opera and Dr Horrible's Sing-Along Blog.
‘Death Note’ will be my favorite anime. Even though I know what is going to occur in episode 25, it still gets to me. I understand Kira’/Light’s Pov a little in the first episode, but ‘absolute power corrupts absolutely’ in Light’s case. I wonder how many people would want a Shinigami and a Death Note of their own! Death note still asks many important questions on morality – If we had the power to kill all the bad people in the world, should we? Is giving up our soul to oblivion worth the sacrifice of changing the world? Can the path of good intentions lead a good person to be a worse monster then those he intends to dispatch? L is not only my favorite character in anime, but one of my favorite tv (my case dvd) characters. Intriguing character – Flawed, eccentric, moral and highly intelligent. As different as he was from Light, they also had a lot in common. They were both incredibly cerebral men who wished in their own ways to make the world a better place. Light was L’s dark mirror in many aspects. Adored the chemistry of danger and admiration between the warring pair. I found this series fascinating and powerful.
