Good morning!

I’m Sarahtps, but I contribute to this blog as Rebecca Anne Coburn. I also run my own blog, Light and Shadows, where I talk about . . . well, books and fandoms mostly, but also my writing, photography, and life in general.

When I’m not blogging, personifying and attacking my schoolwork, or being distracted by the internet, I enjoy exploring other worlds through books, both those I read and those I write. My preferred genre for both is fantasy, but I also love sci-fi, dystopian, historical fiction, and basically anything that catches my interest.

I prefer tea to coffee, warm weather to cold, and Marvel to DC. I have no romantic interests in real life, but when it comes to fandoms, I’m an avid shipper and I have at least half-dozen fictional crushes. I own a cape and two capelets, all of which I wear on occasion, and I have on multiple occasions dressed up as one of my novel characters.

Most importantly, I am a Christian, a child of the One True King trying to shine a little light into a darkened world.

Nai haryuvalyë melwa rë!*

*May you have a lovely day!

    I am so jealous… I have a cape for my Thor costume, but that’s it. I really want to get some nice forest green fabric or something and make myself a cloak or something. 😛

      Mine is a Lorien cape, like from LOTR. I posted about it on my blog a while back. I hope you can make a cloak sometime- if you do, I’d like to see pictures. 🙂

        I think I remember seeing that. I hope so too, and I will definitely take pictures. Right now I’m working on making a Captain America shield. 😀

        Good. And coolness! How are you doing it? (Like, what materials are you using and stuff?)

        I’m still figuring everything out right now, but my mom had this big plate that she didn’t need anymore, so I’m using that as the base. I’ll probably use some red matte board or cardstock to cover it, and then find some white and blue paper or something for the rest. I’m not sure about the straps for my arm yet, though.


      • sarahtps March 10, 2015 / 7:45 PM

        Cool. You could try making the handles out of a few layers of duct tape, probably.

        Ooh, that’s a good idea. I was thinking leather, like his shield, but that’s probably a lot smarter, and cheaper too. 😛

    I have a bad case of shipping. -_- How do I know? I ended up shipping two of my own characters–worse, I think it’s actually an AU pairing… 0_0

      I ship a great many of my own characters very hard. 😀 Jared and Bianca is probably my biggest ship, but . . . yeah. Most of those ships will become canon (if they aren’t already), but there are a few that won’t.

        Alex and Connor… -_- (Alex is short for Alexandra.) I want to write them platonically, but then my muse goes in and ships them. *facepalm*

        Maybe you should listen to your muse. 😛
        Also, I have occasionally suffered from the opposite problem: worrying that I don’t have enough romance between certain supposed-to-be-couples.


      • erinkenobi2893 March 11, 2015 / 7:38 PM

        *facepalm* That’s what EVERYONE keeps telling me. 😦 The thing is, I don’t think it would work…


      • erinkenobi2893 March 12, 2015 / 6:20 AM

        I don’t know if a relationship would be practical for them…


      • sarahtps March 12, 2015 / 6:24 AM

        Relationships, as a general rule, are terribly impractical, unless you’re marrying a person for money- and even then, there are better ways to get rich. Just sayin’.


      • erinkenobi2893 March 12, 2015 / 6:58 AM

        *head desk* That’s not what I meant. It would be long-distance, and he’s not supposed to get involved with people. He starts as a reporter, and then becomes a secret agent, and she’s a cop! (FYI, James Bond is very poor practice, people. -_-)


      • sarahtps March 12, 2015 / 7:51 AM

        Mm . . . ok, yeah, I can see how that could lead to trouble. They could still be attracted to each other, though, but they just don’t really act on it in any major ways. And you could imply that they maybe get together after the story ends. (Also: is it bad that I’m putting a fair bit of thought into how this ship could still potentially sail even though I’ve barely read anything about these characters?)


      • erinkenobi2893 March 12, 2015 / 8:38 AM

        Wow, it’s really quiet around here today…
        Okay… maybe…
        Umm… it’s slightly unnerving. Though, I really do like Alex. And of course, Connor is awesome… did you get to read the “Colorblind” sample chapters? I posted one and then a follow-up one on my blog. (I can give you the password to read the follow-up sample, if you like.) They don’t have Alex, but there’s a lot of Connor in them…


      • sarahtps March 12, 2015 / 7:44 PM

        Is it? I only get comments on the pages I’ve made, and in reply to my own comments. I’m trying to figure out if I can get comments from the site in general. 😛
        Ok then. xD And I know I read the first sample chapter; I don’t think I got to read the follow-up, though.


      • erinkenobi2893 March 12, 2015 / 10:50 PM

        It’s still quiet, all the same. *sigh*
        Search “Colorblind sample chapter” or go to the “Novels” page on my blog. The second link should be the password protected one. I’ll go and email you the password so you can read it. 😉


      • sarahtps March 13, 2015 / 12:02 AM

        Awesome! Thanks!


      • proverbs31teen March 11, 2015 / 12:07 AM

        Oh, yes, same here. Most of my ships become canon. Somehow I shipped Slade, my Tony-Stark-ish character with Haven, my super quiet character… *shakes head* It might not work out.


      • sarahtps March 11, 2015 / 4:36 AM

        I don’t know. It also might . . . opposites attract and all that. And he might be just the right kind of guy to draw Haven out of her shell (if she has one).

        She’s more of the thoughtful-quiet type than the shy-quiet type… *laughs* The first group meeting… oh, goodness. She was awesome. But I think you’re right.


      • sarahtps March 12, 2015 / 7:42 PM

        Now I want to hear about this first group meeting.

        XD I don’t want to say too much, since it’ll be in the book, but she showed that she can be forceful when needed. 😀
