Biography:   Here beginith my bio

A bit about me:

Okay, I am a 14 year old female certified, professional couch potato who loves Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Star Wars, and many many movies and books that would take far to long to list here. My favorite musicians include Enya, Nickelback and Dido.

I go by Cliodna Bright on the Internet, and sometimes Lily Black. Mostly I'm just Clio.

I actually have a fairly decent spelling sense, but for the sake of speed my typing looses a bit of it's accuracy, if ya'll know what I mean. Don't be afraid to point mistakes out to me, I really need to know!

I have a somewhat rag-tag, varying collection of fanfictions. My muses are deformed, I think. And they don't like me. Not one bit.

The Hottest Guy On The Planet: Viggo Mortensen as Aragorn, from Lord of the Rings "If by my life or death, if I can protect you, I will. You have my sword."

Coolest Hobbits: A Tie Between Merry and Pippin. "What's that?" "This, my friend, is a pint." "It come in pints? I'm getting one!"

Awesome Elves: Four-way tie between Legolas, Haldir, Elrond and Gil-galad "Yes, they are elves," said Legolas; "and they say that you breathe so loud that they could shoot you in the dark."

"You cannot go back," said Haldir sternly. "Now you have come thus far, you must be brought before the Lord and the Lady. They shall judge you, to hold you, or to give you leave, as they will. You cannot cross the rivers again, and behind you now, there are secret sentinels that you cannot pass. You would be slain before you saw them."

The face of Elrond was ageless, neither old nor young, though in it was written the memory of many things both glad and sorrowful. His hair was dark as the shadows of twilight, and upon it was set a circlet of silver; his eyes were grey as a clear evening, and in them was a light like the light of stars. Venerable he seemed as a king crowned with many winters, and yet hale as a tried warrior in the fulness of his strength. He was the Lord of Rivendell and mighty among both Elves and Men.

Gil-galad was an Elven-king. Of him the harpers sadly sing: the last whose realm was fair and free between the Mountains and the Sea.

His sword was long, his lance was keen, his shining helm afar was seen; the countless stars of heaven's field were mirrored in his silver shield.

But long ago he rode away, and where he dwelleth none can say; for into darkness fell his star in Mordor where the shadows are.

Also, Galadriel and Celebrían kick some serious booty.

Sexy Bounty Hunter: Jango Fett from Star Wars : Attack of the Clones played by Temuera Morrison. "Always a pleasure to meet a Jedi."

Most Etheral Creature: The seraphim Aariel from Many Waters by Madeleine L'Engle "There is no need to understand, little one. I will take you, and it will be all right. Do not fear."


How do we find the promise land if the world is determined to hide the path? -Woman of the Dúnedain

Many waters cannot quench love. Neither can the floods drown it. -Madeleine L'Engle

What makes the desert beautiful is that somewhere it hides a well. -Antoine-Marie-Roger de Saint-Exupery

Pure logic is the ruin of the spirit. -Antoine-Marie-Roger de Saint-Exupery

Thanks! I know that my stories aren't the best quality they could be now, but I hope to improve, and need your reviews to help me become better! ^_^ Keep writing, keep living, and always enjoy every moment of it. Thanks, and ten'on!
