Hey, the name's Ellen, I'm 22 and have just graduated from university with a degree in English Literature and Film Studies
I love House M.D; Buffy:The Vampire Slayer; CSI:Crime Scene Investigation; Dr Who; Torchwood and way too many other things I can't be bothered mentioning
I love intelligent characters which is why I have GIGANTIC crushes on Greg House, Gil Grissom and Willow Rosenberg
I hope you enjoy my stories :)
Quotes I love:
Every living creature on earth dies alone - Donnie Darko
Courage is not the absence of fear but rather the judgment that something is more important than fear. The brave may not live forever but the cautious do not live at all - The Princess Diaries
It can't rain all the time - The Crow
The heart dies a slow death, shedding each hope like leaves... Until one day there are none. No hopes. Nothing remains. - Memoirs of a Geisha
House M.D Quotes:
Patient: "I just want to die with a little dignity."
House: "There's no such thing! Our bodies break down, sometimes when we're 90, sometimes before we're even born, but it always happens and there's never any dignity in it. I don't care if you can walk, see, wipe your own ass. It's always ugly - always! We can live with dignity - we can't die with it."
Cameron: "Sex could kill you. Do you know what the human body goes through when you have sex? Pupils dilate, arteries constrict, core temperature rises, heart races, blood pressure skyrockets, respiration becomes rapid and shallow, the brain fires bursts of electrical impulses from nowhere to nowhere, and secretions spit out of every gland, and the muscles tense and spasm like you're lifting three times your body weight. It's violent, it's ugly and it's messy, and if God hadn't made it unbelievably fun, the human race would have died out eons ago."
House: "It's a basic truth of the human condition that everybody lies. The only variable is about what. The weird thing about telling someone they're dying is it tends to focus their priorities. You find out what matters to them. What they're willing to die for. What they're willing to lie for."
Moriarty: "You think that the only truth that matters is that truth can be measured. Good intentions don't count. What's in your heart doesn't count. Caring doesn't count. But a man's life can be measured by how many tears are shed when he dies. Just because you can't measure them, just because you don't wanna measure them, doesn't mean it's not real. And even if I'm wrong, you're still miserable. Did you really think that your life's purpose was to sacrifice yourself and get nothing in return? No...you believe that there is no purpose, to anything, even the lives you save you dismiss. You turn the one decent thing in your life and you taint it, strip it of all meaning. You're miserable for nothing...I don't know why you'd wanna live."
