"The class was learning about some revolt in which some peasants had wanted to stop being peasants and, since the nobles had won, had stopped being peasants really quickly. -- (Terry Pratchett, Soul Music)" Hey I'm Ratty, although Rebekah or Bekka is fine, I guess I'm on this site to see if I've got what it takes to be a serious/professional author although that might put a downer on my 'creative muse'. My bestest friends in the whole entire world are always there fo me they are (in no particular order): My sisters (Lizzy, Gilly and Fi) My Mama, Evie, Suzie, Annemarie and Tree - these are people I can always turn to and will always make me smile, even when times are seriously tough and will always help me, no matter what, even if that means randomly blabbing on an on until it stops me thinking. Some completely random things about me you might want to know... I'm getting a tattoo of a Lizard/Dragon on my stomach and right hip and a Belly-button piercing. Soon. (But after Uni or I won't get it funded - my mum says that) I want to go to University to become a Dentist. Sorry, My webbie is very boring (It has nothing on). I Have started college now and am enjoying the courses! yay! Lots of new friends etc My favourite author: Hands down - Terry Pratchett (I have 'A Hatful of Sky' and 'The Amazing Maurice...' SIGNED my the man himself about 4-5 years ago!) Favourite book: Too many to choose from although 'The Book Thief' has to be up in the top five. Favourite poem: Simply because it's great, 'None today thank you' which is about exploding nuns... brilliant, by Spike Milligan. My favourite TV shows: TNA iMPACT, WWE, House, QI, Mock the Week, Dollhouse, Ashes to Ashes Favourite Movies: Shaun of the Dead, iRobot, The Meaning of Life (Monty Python), Finding Nemo. Best Artist (single + bands): Default, Skindred, Rammstein, Peroxwhy? Gen, Pink, Lostprophets My Collaboratives: Shakespeare Reworked: A playful jab at the classics.

Ratty P.S - You may have noticed, altough I don't reckon that you take much interest, my name has changed, this is due to a family issue and my name will remain this way as (shortly) it shall be changed officially... please don't comment anything about it.
