Hi there!

My name's Jillian, but you can call me Jill. I'm a high school senior born and raised in sunny California, the land of sunburns and sweaty people.

Quick things about me:

I really like the color purple I'm a huge fan of the Harry Potter series. Wanna make a bet? Ask me some trivia. I dare you. Other favorite books include Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett, The Book Thief by Markus Zusak, Slaughterhouse Five by Kurt Vonnegut, and 1984 by George Orwell I love history and mythology (ties into my love for anything by Rick Riordan) I fell in love with an art history course I took junior year and am hoping to work in a museum when I'm older Guilty pleasures: binge watching Cutthroat Kitchen, Chopped, Project Runway, or Family Feud Proud member of the LGBTQIA community My favorite emoji is the laughing-while-crying smiley face I just really really love dogs ok?? Favorite bands: Panic! at the Disco, Twentyone Pilots, Queen, The Beatles I'm a total broadway fanatic. Please come talk musicals with me! Tea is the best drink. Unless you have a peppermint mocha, in which case--gimme that!!

I put off making this account for a long time because I never knew what to choose as a username... noting sounded right. SurgeOfEmotion best encapsulates my persona as a writer; I write infrequently, often only when overcome by a sudden burst of inspiration or an inexplicable bout of sadness. For that reason, updates on this account are likely to be sporadic at best. Sorry.


I made this account at the bequest of my good friend Brynn of Stone, who has way more motivation to be creative than I could ever dream to have. Do yourselves a favor and go check her out.

Since 2012, I've wasted more and more of my time on tumblr. You can find me at

At the same time I created this account, I also made an ao3 account with the same penname. I'm hoping to eventually post fanworks there (given I have the energy to finish them). I will definitely use that account for bookmarking my favorite fanfictions (which I read a lot of).

Half a personal lament, half a letter to a dear mentor, too soon departed. Also known as: Jill spent a day distraught after hearing of Alan Rickman's passing and decided to ramble on about the day's events at 1 AM in an attempt to unburden some grief. Inspired by Brynn of Stone's A Man Named Alan.
