About Things Posted

The Trial of a Possessed Spirit: my main fandom. MY story that's just so personally iconic. its the story of my life, though not actually having much in common with my life. probably needs editing. i've written like 100,000 words of it but not all of it is here since that's spoilery.

The Sweater: fanfiction of the authors of a harry potter fanfiction (which is called my immortal) who may or may not actually exist. boyyy if you don't know my immortal is what that is google it. it's the funniest thing and like just an iconic piece of modern literature ok. gothic as hell and beautiful. you will love it more than harry potter. i do. i wrote this for highschool btw so it's probably not THAT great.

People Like Us: some terrible trash i wrote for university. do NOT. allegedly a romance story.

It Was Real: some more trash i wrote for univeristy. allegedly a horror story.

Aliens: basically the biggest fucking meme ever. wooooOOO BOy why did i even write this pleASE END ME.

Hami: noun[c]. Mage. Protector. The title given to those who are able to control their Riaf, the core of all living things, and use it to move the elements at their disposal. Khaled Ben Sakir is a 'restricted' with a bad temper. He's not good enough to be a Hami but too dangerous to leave without a Riaf education. He yearns to prove himself, but hard work might not be enough. WIP.

The Wolves of the Moon by Brightflare reviews
Revolving around the lives of werewolves that aren't part of the "pack", this is a boredom story. m/m Rated T but fair warning if male/male pairing offend you, I would suggest you just hit the back key, implied yaoi, low fantasy (one species story), moments of silliness, and low amounts of fur time.

The windows to space, past the driving core, gave Bal a clear view of the gateway floating amidst the stars. It was split in two like a gigantic bronze egg with a ring between its two half's that was the opening of a vast corridor of green light. This greenlight was a wormhole that would transport their ship to the alien's solar system and allow for them to make first contact.

Tara loved her sweater. She wore it everywhere, all the time; while she typed her gothic as hell Harry Potter fan fiction, My Immortal; while she moshed to Good Charlotte in her bedroom; on dates with the love of her depressing life, Justin; as Raven, her best friend, filmed YouTube videos with her; and on the many holidays her parents took her on to quote: "reinvigorate her life".
