Hello, people of the planet Earth!
'Tis I, Raquel - more commonly referred to as Quel or Q - and I happen to be Dutch! In case you don't know what that is, it's a native to the Netherlands - GoogleMaps is your friend. (: I'm twenty-one years old as of September 16th and a girl - but only because I am in the possession of breasts and a vagina; otherwise I'm pretty much a boy, I suppose. I write, I draw, I read and sing very badly as well, lol.
I'm the girl that loves anything with "star" in it - Stargate (not Universe, please go die in a corner), Star Trek, Star Wars (I wield the Win like a man does his penis; hard and unrelenting), Starship Troopers, Primeval (I know, it doesn't have "star" in it, but it has dinosaurs! Dinosaurs are win!) what have you, and by proxy, Chris Pine, Leonard Nimoy, Zachary Quinto, Michael Shanks, Amanda Tapping, Andrew-Lee Potts, Jim Parsons and David Hewlett. I'm also a big fan of NCIS, because I like figuring things out (I enjoy profiling) and my dad's in the Dutch Royal Navy, so there. And since we're on a television show/movie naming tour, marathons of the Big Bang Theory is a must. I'm a biiiiig fan of Dr. Stephen Hawking - astrophysicist - Dr. Michio Kaku - theoretical physicist - and I like the Harry Potter universe; however, not so much the movies or the characters. I'm ridiculously crazy about anything from the Hitch Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy; best five books ever written, r.i.p. Douglas. My music taste includes Cradle of Filth, Avenged Sevenfold, Rise Against, Disturbed, Camille Saint-Saëns, the Pierces, the Beatles, Nightwish, Lacuna Coil, Kamelot, Mozart, Daft Punk and any form of Pachelbel's Canon D, really.
I absolutely hate Twilight, in any shape, way or form, anything canine that's smaller than a rat, spiders (sorry, they're not cool), close-minded people and people who take life far too seriously. On top of that, and I think I speak for everyone when I say that I hate hypocrites, self-righteousness and pretentiousness, but since people are inheritly selfish and arrogant, what can you do about it, aside from building a Death Star and blowing up the planet Earth?
Above all, I'm a fan of Wikipedia. In my spare time, I read about psychology, astronomy and astrophysics, and love reading through thefreedictionary.com, just for the definitions of words. My favourite characters all time are Richard the Warlock from the webcomic Looking For Group and Dr. Sheldon Cooper from the Big Bang Theory; bazinga. I also adooooooore dinosaurs, pre-historic animals like the megalodon and the smilodon (sabre-tooth tiger!!), the Syfy Channel, the History Channel and by the Gods, Discovery Science. They're my porn, at any rate.
What else.. Oh. Right. I code, do graphics, and play a lot of games (Halo, the Sims, Vampire: the Masquerade, Black & White, the Elder Scrolls: Oblivion, Neverwinter Nights, Doom and the best game ever, Unreal Tournament). I am fluent in English, German, Dutch, Lolcat and HTML (don't care what you say, it's a language) and am able to read French, Spanish, Sumerian and Serbian to an extent. I'm also able to write in both the latin and cyrillic alphabets with ease.
I'm a workaholic and an obsessive perfectionist, always changing everything and needing everything to be just right - unless the detail is too insignificant, then I can't be arsed, lol. I'm cynical and sarcastic, and the biggest grammar nazi you'll come across. If English isn't your first language, you're entirely excused, but if it is, simple spelling mistakes are unforgivable; there's a thing called spellchecker, you know?
I see that I have managed to write an essay already... Time to conclude! If you wish to know more, just add me on email@example.com (msn) or windexorx (aim), and I'm happy to answer any and all questions!
