One hundred words about the muse that everyone should know:

Aislinn is a Leanan Sidhe. The Leanan Sidhe are the fairy muses of Ireland. Some see them as benign, but most link them to the legend of the artist who dies young, burned up, and that's what we've gone with. She provides inspiration that spurs talent into genius, often beyond imagining, but she feeds on the creative energy the artist expends on their enterprise. Slowly, the artist is drained, eventually dying as the creative energy of a lifetime that would have eked out, possibly just in mediocrity, flares and flashes and then is gone. The payoff, of course, is that the work is generally work that will last forever. It is legend that most "great" artists were possessed of a Leanan Sidhe, especially those that died mad and young. (i.e. Byron. *g*)

She can draw energy from sex as well, as it is the ultimate creative act, capable of producing life, and as such, she is very sensual and very sexual, though her preferred method of feeding is through creative works and she only uses sex for food when starving or when asked by her partner (which they sometimes do, as it is a very intense, linked, physical and emotional experience when she chooses to indulge).

Part of her is very proud of what she is, fiercely so. She sees herself as nature's balance--fostering genius, but making sure it doesn't overwhelm the world. But another part of her hates that she is a killer at heart, and wants something softer, something just hers. To love without knowing that her love will kill her lover, and to be loved despite everything she has done.

She doesn't make friends easily, but once she does, she is very loyal and very protective.

Prompt only, or available to roleplay? VERY open to RP -- in fact, she really could use some more frieds. :-)
