Brain and Heart

"Love is the triumph of imagination over intelligence." - H.L. Mencken

Hey guys, its Gryphin. I happen to be a real life person though too! And out in RL they call me Crystal. I am a fangirl shipper, with Bones and Castle topping my list. I think Bones filled a little (BIG) X-Files shaped hole in my heart. I am a fanfic writer, and I post on LJ and FF.net. I am terribly jealous of all of the amazing talent that is found in our community - from icon makers, to vidders, to picspams, to authors...you name it. We have a very gifted fandom.

In RL I am a stay-at-home mom with the hardest and most rewarding job there is. I am a wife and mother of 3 small kids (ages 5, 3 and 1) and so life gets pretty crazy sometimes. My husband and I are also the worship leaders at church, so I sometimes can get behind on writing, posting, etc. I'm trying to balance my time better though! I joined LJ in 2009 and spent the first year obsessed. =) After dropping it for a long and dry spell, I am now coming back - a more disciplined person that handles my time and priorities better.
