Author has written 12 stories for General, Supernatural, Life, Friendship, Nature, Fantasy, and Sci-Fi.
Hi I'm Shadowstar13! Just call me Shadow for short. I am completly in love with Zuko from Avatar: The Last Airbender. I am new to fanfiction and writing in general. I love writing short stories and have developed a number of them. I am currently working on two novels, The Experiment and Luciana's Adventure in Neverland. I hope many people will read them and enjoy them. In almost every story I write, there is a character by the name of Charlie. He is almost always the big brother of the main character, or main character himself.
I am an aspiring pirate and ninja. I'm an amateur astronomer as well. I love looking at the stars, and listening to the stories of the constelations. I also enjoy learning about horoscopes, but I do not depend on them to make my every move. I love learning about new religions and different aspects of the paranormal and supernatural. I have a complicated view on the universe. It is so difficult to understand, that no normal human being could possibly comprehend it. Luckily for me, I'm not a normal human being, and have been told so my entire life.
I am a Harry Potter freak and will someday memorize the books, hopefully. I'm not a fan of Twilight, but I try to stay neutral on the subject (however that does not work in most situations, I will always take HP's side). I love reading, almost any type of fiction/fantasy book. If they have somesort of supernatural magic in them, I will love it! I read to escape the boring life I have, and it helps me forget the drama of the world around me. I live in my own little world, and it is not uncommon to find me daydreaming about fantasy worlds during the school day.

Here are some survival tips that might save your life if you find yourself in a horror film situation:
When it seems that you've killed the monster, never check to see if it's really dead, cause chances are, it's not.
If you find that your house is built upon or near a cemetery, was once a church used for black masses, had previous inhabitants who went mad or committed suicide or died in some horrible fashion or who performed necrophilia or satanic practices, move away immediately.
Never read a book of demon summoning aloud, even as a joke.
Do not search the basement, especially when the power has just gone out.
If your children speak to you in Latin or any other language which they do not know, or if they speak using a voice other than their own, shoot them at once. It will save you a lot of grief in the long run. Note: it's unlikely they'll die easy, so be prepared.
When you have the benefit of numbers, never pair off or go off alone.
If the gang plans a fun midnight party in the town's old abandoned mansion, don't tag along. Especially don't tag along if everyone's going as couples, except you're the odd guy/gal out. And if you're the gang's jokester, you may as well write up your last will and testament while you're driving with them to the place.
As a general rule, don't solve puzzles that open portals to Hell.
Never stand in, on, above, below, beside, or anywhere near a grave, tomb, crypt, mausoleum, or other domicile of the dead.
If you're searching for something which caused a noise and find out that it's just the cat, leave the room immediately if you value your life.
If appliances start operating by themselves, move out.
Do not take (or borrow) anything from the dead.
Don't fool with recombinant DNA technology unless you're sure you know what you are doing.
If you're running from the monster, expect to trip or f all down at least twice, more if you are female. Also note that, although you are running and the monster is merely shambling along, it's still moving fast enough to catch up with you.
If your companions suddenly begin to exhibit uncharacteristic behavior such as hissing, fascination for blood, glowing eyes, increasing hairiness, and so on, get away from them as fast as possible.
Stay away from certain geographical locations, some of which are listed here: Amityville, Elm Street, Transylvania, Nilbog (God help you if you recognize this one), the Bermuda Triangle, or any small town in Maine or Massachusetts.
If your car runs out of gas at night, do not go to the nearby deserted-looking house to phone for help.
Beware of strangers bearing tools such as chain saws, staple guns, hedge trimmers, electric carving knives, combines, lawnmowers, butane torches, soldering irons, band saws, weed-whackers or any device made from deceased companions.
Listen closely to the soundtrack; and pay attention to the audience, since they are usually far more intelligent than you could ever hope to be.
Never, never, NEVER try to communicate with something icky because "there's so much we can learn from them".
Don't make fun of or play with dead things.
If you find a town which looks deserted, it's probably for a reason. Take the hint and stay away.
If a meteor strikes nearby, move out of town.
When something bad is chasing you, bear in mind that when you try to start your car, no matter how reliable the vehicle is normally, you'll have to crank the engine over many times before it will fire up.
If you walk into the local abandoned-looking church to seek help or shelter, and you notice that the crucifix is mounted upside down, turn around and go back outside as quietly as possible.
When you happen to be one of the fortunate ones and actually make it through the film alive, never, NEVER sign on to do a sequel. If you do, expect to depart this world in the first five minutes.
Strange lights are seldom harbingers of joy.
People arriving to rescue you generally get ambushed by the monster, so don't rely on them as your only means of escape. In fact, expect to be surprised and delayed by encountering their flayed corpse at some point.
On no account do ANYTHING because someone dares you to.
If you realize that the people in your town/county are having their minds taken over by some strange force, alien or otherwise: DO NOT call the police as they areeither already taken over themselves and will turn you in or will not believe you and laugh at you.Either way, you must handle the problem yourself.
If a small band of children appear to be smarter then the adults that are around them, be cautious. If they stay together in a small, secretive group, and display nothing but hostility towards their elders, authority, and the church, leave town at once. If you wish to stay, be as kind to the children as possible, but expect to die anyways because you are inferior to them.
If you assist the villian of the film, do not expect gratitude in exchange for your services. In fact, do not expect anything other than death, which will come in the final minutes of the film and usually over the girl you have become attracted to, but the villian wants as this own.
If any animals, such as Birds, Pirahna, Spiders, etc. begin to exhibit behavior that seems a bit more hostile towards mankind than normal, immediately call in the authorities, get out of that town, and do not try to talk to any scientist who specializes in that animal (ornithologists and the like) for they will not believe you.
Whatever you do, DO NOTkeep pets such as cats, dogs, hamsters, or anything cuddly. If you must, do not let them out of your sight for so much as a second.
When you land on a distant planet and find some objects that look like eggs, leave them alone.
When one of your spaceship's crew finds a hideous parasite attached to his body (as a result of disobeying the previous rule), don't let him back on the ship. The guy's dogmeat anyway.
When a hideous alien menace is hunting you (as a result of disobeying the previous two rules) never wander off alone to hunt for the ship's cat.
Never, EVERgo in/out there (There being the attic, closet, barn, basement, dark alley, dark anywhere else, the all-concealing shadows, the woods or the lake)
If someone who seems important tells you to do or NOT do something (like DON'T fall asleep, DON'T leave me, DON'T look for the homicidal-chainsaw-wielding- psychopath by yourself) by all means, listen to them, unless doing so would break another of the guidelines.
If you manage to lose a few body parts along the way, don't despair. Take this opportunity to replace them with weapons, such as chainsaws, harpoons, etc.
If you are using a gun to combat the all-comsuming evil, it is a good idea to quickly find a new means of defense, because no matter how much ammo you have, you'll run out just before you kill the monster.
If you are wounded by flesh-eating zombies, aboandon all hope, because sooner or later, no matter how many anti-biotics you take, yer gonna become one of 'em.
If you're the the last main character left, and a bunch of people are hunting the monster/monsters DON'T stand out in the open, because you will immediately be mistaken for a/the monster.
Don't open the closed door, especially if you hear scratching, heavy breathing, or any other strange noises from the other side.
DO NOT go into the dark room.
If you're a male, get out of there as fast as possible! The only one who ever survives is a female.
While in a horror film, never bathe, especially when in the house alone.
In terms of weaponry and general equipment for fighting the monster, never rely on any tool more complicated than a pointed stick. Generators will inexplicably run out of power, just as the nasty space-vegetable climbs onto your jury rigged electrical grid. Just when you've got the ghoul lined up in your sights, your gun will invariably jam.
If you are a female, never show your breasts, easy women are expendable.
Never camp or build homes on Indian burial grounds.
Ask why the estate is being sold so cheap.
If the phone lines are dead, and you hear footsteps upstairs, when you're supposed to be alone, don't follow the noises to see who your "guest" is . LEAVE IMMEDIATELY. Unless you want to die!!
Never pick up the phone and call for help, chances are your phone will be dead and the next thing you'll see is the monster swinging some sort of sharp object.
If you have defeated the monster, pay close attention to the camera, if it pans away for no apparent reason at all, get the heck out of there.
Your dog can take care of itself...So can your spouse...And your kids.
Self-sacrifice is a bad idea, as the person you saved will usually die anyway.
Skeptics are always proved wrong in some horrible, nasty, painful way. Be a believer.
If you're not a main character, suicide is a quicker and easier way out.
Your plan takes into account all possible situations... except for the one that actually occurs.
Don't be a smart-ass. It'll only get you killed.
When you have actually gotten a monster down on the ground with your gun, immediately empty all your shots in the monsters' head.
Never be present immediately before, during, or anytime after a succesful demon/devil/monster summoning.
People driven by veangance always die.
Mentioning any goals in life, anything to look forward to, or any loved ones will get you killed.
Never, under any circumstances, go to summer camp.
Puzzle boxes are hard to solve for a reason.
Feel no guilt.
If you throw away some possession of yours (antique dolls and ventriloquist's dummies in particular), and you find it again in your house/car/pockets/etc. move to another country IMMEDIATELY! Of course, it WILL be waiting for you in the car as you go to leave.
If you try to run away, always take the bus. If you take a car the monster will be in it. Cabbies are always demonically possessed. Monsters will destroy any plane/boat you try to take. And you have to go through dark, underground stations to get on a subway.
If you are a child, don't panic! Monsters only attack overly horny teenagers. Children can NOT be killed in a movie, only possessed or absorbed. So cheer up!
If you see a loved one you know to be dead, RUN AWAY! Many people will ignore this bit of common sense, but remember: you can always buy a new pet, always have more kids, and always get a new spouse or significant other.
If you're being chased by a monster and you think it's behind you, chances are it will appear in front of you (and if you're a girl, this will happen right after you trip and fall, and then stand up and look behind you).
If you've beaten the monster into a bloody pulp and you're sure he must be dead, take the opportunity to dismember, burn, eat, blow up or otherwise destroy him.
If you're being chased by a monster and you find one of your friends and they ask "what's wrong?", don't stop and try to explain. Just tell them to run as you go by. If they're really your friend they'll follow. If not - that's their tough luck.
If you should easily enter a home that you've either heard a scream from or there is no sign of life when there should be, do not be surprised to find that all means of escape (i.e. doors, windows, etc.) will be locked, effectively allowing the monster to come within a gnat's hair to you.
If you should run across one of the escape routes from the previous rule that is made of glass, DO NOT waste time pounding on it. Breaking it would prove to be a better course of action. (Remember, a cut-up hand is better than a chest wound.)
If you are a good dog you have a 50-50 chance of survival. Good dogs will only die if they stand up to the monster in defense of their master. Bite the hand that feeds you and run away!If you are a bad dog, you WILL be dead by the movie's end. Therefore, kill all people you encounter, except for your ex-master, whom you feel strangely compelled to avoid.If you're a cat, just hide your head and pray that the monsters won't eat you, the Catholic Inquisitors won't burn you as a witch's familiar, and/or the horny teen-age guys don't throw you over the edge of a cliff to see if you land on your feet.If you're a bird, CONGRATULATIONS! Your people will triumph and rule all in the end (or you might at least escape your $%& cage!).
If you are even somewhat religious, BECOME AN ATHEIST IMMEDIATELY!Monsters will invariably seek you out, gloating in defiance of "your weak faith," and say mean things about your deity.
Whenever a strange weapon is presented (e.g. a harpoon gun, flare gun, can opener, etc.) TAKE IT! If you don't, the monster will, and sooner or later take the weapon and it WILL BE USED! Better you use it then the monster.
If you find a lot of dead people running around making zombies out of the living, kill yourself IMMEDIATELY! There is no happiness to be found when you're being eaten alive.
A single monster can never be killed. Multiple monsters can never be driven to extinction. Therefore, try to get one kind to go after the other.
When you fight a monster use fire, electricity or acid whenever possible. Prefferably use all of the above.
ALL atomic weapons cause normal creatures to grow huge and carnivorous. As do all chemical and germ weapons. ALL genetic experiments will create humanoid mutants (whether or not human/primate DNA is used) with BIG teeth and claws, and a tough hide impervious to bullets. NEVER play god and try your hand at gene-splicing!
Always make eye shots whenever possible as all mosters ignore chest/limb attacks. If you hit the eye the monster will be blinded for a while (maybe... and if you're really lucky... and if the creature even has any eyes to shoot in the first place).
If you look out the window and see a monster, chances are he's coming after you some time or another. Go into seclusion very very far away.
If you set the monster on fire, or he is set on fire, he will not die but instead try and fight you while he is on fire.
If a dog, cat, or horse begins to behave in an erratic fashion in a particular person's presence, avoid that person at all costs (even if it is your spouse or child).
A small-town's little summer celebration sounds like fun, but if you hear the locals say things like, "Why you're the guest of honor! We couldn't even *have* the barbecue without you!" run like hell.Remember: quaint rural corn ceremonies are NEVER really about corn...
Stay away from 'quaint' hotels and inns. Go for the brand names.
Turning around in general is a bad idea, as the monster is usually waiting right there for you.
Never open strange cannisters, especially not if they're government owned.
Stimulating glands that were not meant to be stimulated is a REAL bad idea.
Never meddle in God's domain.
Learn as early as possible that Man is a feeling creature, and therefore the greatest in the universe.
If you catch snatches of the theme song, you know the bad thing is close by.
If your car breaks down in the woods, take the time to walk the extra 5 miles into town.
Make sure what you use to kill the nasty things is a poison, and not a stimulant of any kind.
If you're gonna go out, don't do it quietly. Take out those annoying friends of yours with you.
Don't work the night shift.
Never fool yourself into believing you're powerful enough to contain anything you summoned.
Under no circumstances remove any unusual item from glaciers or large blocks of ice (ie. flying saucers, Frankenstein's monster, Dracula, the wolfman, etc...)If you do remove something unusual from the ice, do not let it thaw. (Specifically, do not throw an electric blanket over ice, do not bleed on ice, and do not let the freezer's power go out.)If you do entomb a monster in ice (Godzilla, the blob, etc) make sure that the monster's location is not well known. (Sightseers have an annoying habit of bringing electric blankets, bleeding on ice, or detonating A-Bombs.)Don't explode A-Bombs in the Arctic, South Sea atolls, or deep beneath the ocean. These locations are thickly inhabited with survivors from the prehistoric past. (Not to mention the blob, giant octopi, etc.)
Don't explode A-Bombs in the desert, which are full of many insect species just waiting for their chance to mutate into gigantic forms.
As a corollary, don't store sugar or picnic foods anywhere near a desert which has been the site of an A-Bomb test.
Don't explode A-Bombs near men or women. They may grow to gigantic size and battle casino signs in Las Vegas.
Don't submerge yourself in a bathyscaphe and search for prehistoric monsters under the ocean. You may as well just drive a giant fish hook through your body and get someone to troll with you.
Don't visit backwoods regions of the United States, especially those regions filled with quaint people with colorful names like Leatherface or Pun'kinhead.
Stay on the Interstate.
If your parents killed a serial killer before you were born, chances are the serial killer will come back from the dead to kill you.
If you are trapped in a house surrounded by demons, making coffee will not help anyone.
If a maniac or monster or zombie is trying to get into your house, don't decide to try and find your lost cat or dog. Give it up, Fido and Fluffy are on their own.
Any military containers that accidentally get mailed to you should be sent right back. And never, ever hit a container to test how strong it is.
Whenever someone warn's you not to go up, down, under or over there, whatever you do, don't go! (They are only trying to save you from a most certain and Horrible death)
Do not, under *any* circumstances, ever go skinny dipping, especially at night.
Always carry several guns and lots of hollow point bullets. Shoot everything. All the time. Don't even wait.
If you can avoid it, try not to swim in lakes or natural bodies of water. If you swim in a pool, you can see what's under the water. also, don't swim at night, especially when alone.
If you are female and you just found any of your friends dead by any means it's probably not the time to get naked and take a shower.
If you really must run screaming through the woods, remember to dress for it. Jeans and sneakers always beat a filmy nightgown and high heels.
When the bad guy stops to tell you what he is going to do to you, that's when you RUN AWAY!!

If you discover any odd scars, wounds, tattoos, or other irritations on your body--you are a goner!!!!!
Breaking mirrors usually makes a difference in horror movies.
If you share a last name with the killer, creature, demon, or other nasty, make darn sure it is a coincidence. Otherwise, get a new identity. In any case, you will probably become it's new incarnation.
NEVER go back for anything you lost, anywhere.
Never tease anyone. They either gain extraordinary powers, or go psycho.
All myths and legends have a basis in fact...
If you know a planet is inhabited with thousands of acid bleeding creatures, it is generally not a good idea to go to that planet and try to bring back one of the creatures.
On the off chance you decide to disobey the above rule, and your tracking device says the acid bleeding creatures are moving towards you, immediately point your gun at the ceiling and fire. Try not to look directly up...
Never climb a fence with barbed wire at the top to go skinny dipping in an unusual, mysterious, government-owned body of water. Especially if there are rumors about government "happenings" circulating.
If you are home alone and hear a noise coming from another room or outside your window, don't assume it's just the house settling or the wind.
If you send your husband down to check out a mysterious sound and he doesn't return within five minutes, don't go downstairs. He's probably already dead.
If you value your life, stay a virgin.
Crosses NEVER work on demonic beings.
Never try to kill a monster the same way it was done before. (This must cause something real, real bad because no one ever tries it.)
If you feel funny and start to grow hair, shoot yourself in the head with a silverbullet - AT ONCE!

When Granny starts frothing at the mouth it's time to send her to the retirement home.

NEVER ever pick up hitch hickers on deserted rural roads, especially if you live in texas.
