Hello! I'm the webmistress of c-c.com. My name is Tiffany, though pretty much everyone knows me as Archica on the web. I'm a big fan of anime, manga, video games, horror movies, and anything involving zombies. I like to mess around with HTML and CSS, though I admit to not being very good at it. I love to write, mostly in the form of angsty fanfiction one-shots dealing with odd pairings and horror short stories that usually end up at Paperlinks.org. I often start multi-chaptered stories that I don't plan to finish. I write some original stuff, and sometimes work on a novel series called "Zombie Party".
I have no pets currently, though I do have four big brothers, four sisters-in-law, three nieces, and two nephews. I'm not married and don't want to be at the moment. I don't go to college, and don't really plan to, but who knows what the future will bring? I'm largely undecided about what I want to do, career-wise, though I would love to be a novelist at some point.
Personality-wise, I am extremely honest to the point of seeming too blunt, which can often be misunderstood. Even so, I always try to do for others and share what I have, regardless of whether or not I get something back (usually not XD). I'm Christian, though I am VERY FAR from perfect and would like to be better in that regard. I believe that you reap what you sow. I also believe in being creative and relying on your own talents.
My dislikes include animal abusers, unoriginality (copycats are the root of all evil XD), pathological liars, and netspeak. If you're over twelve, I'm sorry, but I'm going to laugh at you if you type liek teh kool kidz do lolz. Unless you're doing it as a joke. At which point I'll laugh with you. I hate lettuce with a burning passion, and all forms of sea food. I hate "harem" style anime/manga series and romantic comedies. And I severely dislike any sort of brands on clothing. Free advertising for some wealthy company is not my idea of fashion.
At a young age I became interested in American comic books and spent my childhood being obsessed with the X-Men and various other X-titles (mostly X-Factor, Excalibur w/Pete Wisdom, and Generation X). I was also interested in Superboy, Harley Quinn, WildC.A.T.S., Spawn's Angela, The Darkness, and Scion at varrying points). I still pick up American comics occasionally, though I have lost interest in X-Men over the years and long for them to return to their early 90's glory. I now focus on buying up back issues from the late 70's and 80's. In recent years I've been into X-Statix and fell for the limited series NYX. I am currently obsessed with Fables.
In the fourth grade, I stayed home sick from school one day only to catch "Venus Wars" on the Sci-Fi channel as part of their Anime Week. I was interested but hardly obsessed. A couple of years later I saw "Tenchi Muyo in Love" (also known as "Tenchi Muyo: The Movie") which I fell head over heels in love with. A few more years later I discovered the magic of fansubs by way of VKLL, the Canadian fansubbers most famous for subbing Sailor Moon. I spent a few years as a fansub distributor before DVD killed VHS, during which time I acquired around three hundred or more anime tapes. After that, I switched to HK DVD's, which is what I currently buy.
I've been a horror fan literally for as long as I can remember. I'm most often drawn to crazy, gory B-movies like the "Evil Dead" films. I love zombie movies, particularly "Return of the Living Dead" and Romero's original trilogy of "Dead" films. But lately I've developed a taste for subtle Asian horror like "Ring" and "Premonition".
I started playing video games when my family bought an NES with Super Mario Brothers when they came out. I spent my early years playing Mario, Street Fighter, and Mortal Kombat. I also discovered Final Fantasy IV (called Final Fantasy II back then), and though I found it intriguing, I didn't quite understand how to play it. I would return to it a few years later, launching me into all-out Final Fantasy fan-ism, playing FFVI and then graduating to the Playstation and PS2. I'm now in love with the Shin Megami Tensei games. I still think Chrono Trigger for the SNES is the greatest game ever made.
