Name: Alyssa, a few of my friends call me Al, however.
Location (if you don't want to say, be creative): I inhabit this polluted but still beautiful planet known as Earth, in the United States, in a rather boring state known as Ohio, missing the oceanside place in California where I came from.
.All these require at least a sentence or two. No one or two word answers.
What makes you a fatal beauty? Guys can be beauties, too. Physically, I express my face and eyes in such a way that I'm sometimes told is dangerous, sultry, but most usually, mysterious. I think I use my nails for things people would rather not I do too often. I'm very secretive, guarded and don't like to look undignified. I'm extremely opinionated and will argue tooth and nail with someone for something I'm trying to defend. I'm fierce and intense with my feelings, fierce love or fierce dislike/hate. I'm very independant and don't really give a damn what other people think of me. I've always wanted to learn some martial arts and especially have been trying to take up yoga lately, and soon I hope to be in some sort of martial arts as well. I like what my best friend said about my personality, here -
"I think you're interesting and weird. Like, you're like a sea shell creature that is slowly coming out or something. But all you let people see is like some of your scales, so we see like a glimmer of beauty and then bam, shell slaps close and there goes some guy's arm. So secretive and passive."
Why are you beautiful? Going with what penthesilea1133 said, because I, and everyone else, was made that way. People that really know me tell me I have a beautiful and intelligent mind and soul. And physically, I'm not fit as I'd like to be, but am working hard at improving myself, and am told I'm beautiful. I have my ugly feeling days, but I am beautiful. I always feel I'm full of myself when I say that, but you can't win either way. If you say you're ugly, you have no self esteem, if you say you're pretty, you're supposedly full of yourself. There's a line between self centeredness and self acceptance.
Your favorite bodypart: I particularly like my legs, my eyes, my shoulders, collarbone and my hair. I'm told I have an elegant face and slender body.
Favorite lethal beauty from the past: Oh, where to begin? Joan of Arc, for one. Leading men into and fighting in battle at 17, and dying for what she believed in before she was even 20. Cleopatra. I'm not sure she actually existed, I'm not too learned in Egyptian history (yet) but Anck Su Namun in The Mummy Returns, and Rachel Weisz's character in that, Evie. But she's fictional.
Role model: My oldest sister. My mom had 7 kids, and by the time I was born (third to last) my oldest sister was 11, and my younger brother and sister followed closely after me and had my parents preoccupied so my oldest sister practically raised me, taking me everywhere, bringing me along to the movies and out with her friends when I was 3 or 4, taking care of me, doing my hair so that it could stay long and I wouldn't have to cut it to that boyish chin-length thing she and all my older sisters had to have because my mom couldn't do their hair. Amy Lee, because she believes you can be talented and successful without having to strip all your clothes off, and her music inspires me. My best friend, she guides and helps me me more than she knows.
Favorite fictional lethal beauty: Aforementioned Evie in The Mummy Returns, Hippolyta, the Queen of the Amazons, the goddesses Hera, Pallas Athena, Aphrodite and especially Artemis/Diana. Atalanta. Morgan le Fey. Éowyn of The Lord of the Rings. Mulan. A lot about her annoys me, but I still like Lara Croft Tomb Raider for some reason.
Favorite movie(s): The Phantom Of The Opera, The Lord Of The Rings films, Braveheart, Interview With The Vampire, The Scarlet Pimpernel, Attilla, Joan Of Arc (Leelee Sobieski version), Peter Pan (Disney version and Jeremy Sumpter/Jason Isaacs version), Beauty And The Beast, The Little Mermaid, Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind, and many others.
Favorite book(s): The Lord Of The Rings, The Silmarillion and The Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien, The Phantom Of The Opera by Gaston Leroux, Phantom by Susan Kay, The Chronicles Of Narnia by C.S. Lewis, The Prydain Chronicles by Lloyd Alexander, Mythology by Edith Hamilton, Interview With The Vampire, The Vampire Lestat, The Queen Of The Damned, The Vampire Armand, Blood And Gold: Or, The Story Of Marius, and Pandora by Anne Rice, Alpha Centauri by Robert Siegel, The Dark Elf Trilogy, The Icewind Dale Trilogy and Legacy Of The Drow by R.A. Salvatore, and tons others.
Favorite myth or fairytale: Peter Pan, Beauty and the Beast, Puss In Boots, Pyramus and Thisbe, Orpheus and Eurydice, Pygmalion and Galatea, Cupid and Psyche, Hercules, Atalanta, Sleeping Beauty, The Swan Princess/Swan Lake...
What makes you feel sexy? I feel unbelievably sexy when I've been exercising, out running with my dog or working out at the gym, I'm out of breath and usually don't look my best with clothes and things, but I feel gorgeous. Out with my best friend when we dress up for no reason just to go out to a movie and strut our stuff through Walmart in high heels at 1 in the morning.
Describe your style: I'm dreadfully picky. If I don't like it, there's no possible way you can make me wear it, I don't give a damn how "cool" or "in" it is. I like dark colours, and I don't seem to like to mix and match much unless I'm wearing jeans with a top, otherwise I like to wear an outfit that's entirely dark, entirely light or a bunch of medium tones together. Black is the best ever. I love the colour red but am very picky about what shades of it I'll wear, and pink and orange, because of how they look with my hair.
What pisses you off? Closeminded ignorance, putting your hands over your ears, screwing your eyes shut and basically yelling "LA LA LA I CAN'T HEAR WHAT YOU'RE SAYING AND I DON'T CARE!" to people and not giving a damn what they say, shallow people, guys just in it for the looks and sex, overbearing of and trying to force things on others, like opinions, beliefs, etc., selfishness... yes, everyone has those times where they just want to be alone and not have anything to do with anyone even when asked to do something for another person, I know I do, but constantly just blowing people off or making up excuses and other such things, enrages me.
Your biggest personality and physical flaws: Personality - emotionally cold, indifferent and distant... this can have its advantages, not getting overly attached to too many people can be good, if you don't have anything then you have nothing to lose or be scared of losing, but overall it's pretty sad. I'm an extreme obsessive compulsive perfectionist, sometimes to the point where if it can't be done perfectly, I won't do it at all. I can be arrogant at times, I really don't mean to but when I do it I seem blind to the fact that I am being arrogant. Physically? I think I have really odd hands, I have a scrawny butt, and rather knobby knees and ankles. And no hips to speak of.
Take a stand on an issue that matters to you. Be controversial. We won't vote you out for an unpopular opinion as long as it's well supported.
Abortion. This has been a heavily debated issue for years and will continue to be. It infuriates me to the point of tears, the fact that people could be so careless and unfeeling to just throw away a human life, a human life they themselves created, and choose when they want to keep it. Every human life is a miracle, with every abortion, how many geniuses and world leaders are being killed, how many Albert Einsteins, Gandhis, Kurt Cobains, Mother Theresas? Which leads to the issue of casual and premarital sex. If you want to have premarital sex, fine, it's your life, and I have no problem with that, but do it responsibly. I believe when people have casual and premarital sex they should fully understand that the purpose of sex is to recreate, not just for the pleasure, and that if they have a baby, they accept the consequences of what they did and bring it into the world. They don't have to keep it, they can put it up for adoption. There are many couples in the world who want children, but are unable to conceive, find one of those couples. People admire other peoples' babies, they're so cute, play with them, take care of them for friends, but abort their own. It's like they're pets, you can have one but you don't have to if you don't want to. Your mother could have aborted you, but she chose to bring you into the world. I know it's not the easiest thing in the world to do, and that's why it's so admirable and more people should do it. I can't speak for the rest of the world, but I know I would brave the struggle of pregnancy and childbirth no matter how hard it got, instead of having a murder on my conscience. People act like they aren't babies until they're big enough to make a noticable bump in the mother's stomach, or until they're out of the womb. They're human beings from the moment of conception, no matter what shape they have.
Pics, at least 3, including one face and one body. Show us your best. Keep in mind what we're about.
I don't have any recent full body pictures because I take my pictures myself and am unable to do anything past arm's length, and my camera has no timer on it. But here are a few taken last August.
And the most recent --
I really like the whole idea of this community, a lot, the concept of a bunch of fiercely and dangerously intelligent and beautiful people coming together and sharing ideas and opinions, and even if they aren't the hottest physically, they have beautiful minds. It's a shame this community is so dead, it really has potential. I'm going to try promoting it a bunch of places and getting it going. I've also made a banner of my own as a gift:
