"Miranda, The Tempest" by John Waterhouse
Once upon a time there was a young girl and her name was Miranda. She didn't live in a big castle, she didn't come from a wealthy family, but she was a happy child and she grew up to be a generally happy woman. Her name meant "to be admired." How odd it would be to name your child something they may not grow up to be. She kept hoping she was -- admired that is.
She enjoyed the odd things in life. Well, what most people might consider odd. Science fiction and fantasy books, TV shows and movies. She would go to SF conventions as often as she could, which in her opinion wasn't often enough. She'd meet with friends, listen to one of her favorite authors do readings, have photos taken with admired actors. She even got the bug for these things called "Masquerades," in which grown men and women would dress up in costume and parade around in front of their peers. Proof lies in the picture.
One day this will be a tale of adventure, laughter and heartache to be told to children at bedtime but for now, it was day-to-day life. Happiness is the key to life. She once read a verse, it went something like this:
Dance like no one's watching, sing like no one's listening,
love like you'll never get hurt, live like it's heaven on earth.
Words to live by, don't you think?
Aeryn: You are Aeryn Sun. Some might call you cold,
or even tight-assed, but it's okay, 'cause you
can take 'em! Cool, calm, and collected you
work well under pressure and aren't afraid to
take on the boys.
