College student. Overworked, underpaid, eternally hungry.
I like Legend of Korra, Tamora Pierce novels, the Mass Effect and Dragon Age series, and any other media where chicks kick ass and take names.

Keladry of mothafuckin’ Mindelan, okay
Tamora Pierce’s girl heroines always win my heart one way or another, but this badass dame really takes the cake.
She’s not magical, she’s not the Chosen One, she doesn’t even have freaky-cool eyes like Alanna the Lioness. No, what this chick’s got is determination, smarts, and the iron-clad willpower to see it through. She wanted to be a knight, and she didn’t expect a miracle would suddenly land at her feet; she trained, she fought, she bled for it, and she didn’t let doubts or naysayers get her down.
This chick is badass normal all the way, and managed to impress so many people with her sheer competent awesome that she became Tortall’s second female knight in over a century, as well as its only un-Gifted female knight in over a century. She’s got nerves of steel and a talent for command that’s earned her the respect of soldiers and knights several times her age. She’s compassionate and thoughtful, and looks out for those in her charge who would otherwise be ignored and mistreated. Her men call her ‘Mother’, but it’s not a term of disrespect— no, when they call Lady Knight Keladry ‘Mother’, they’re thinking of a mama bear who would charge into hell itself to rescue her babies.
IN SHORT, KELADRY OF MINDELAN IS AWESOME, AND I LOVE HER.
