Author has written 30 stories for Fantasy, General, General, Haiku, and Life.
I'm a sixteen year old girl who spends far too much time reading fanfiction. (Addiction... Gotta love it.) My favorite pastimes are reading, writing, reading, swimming, reading, people-watching, reading, knitting, reading, making snide comments, and reading. Oh, did I mention reading?

Seriously, though, language is pretty much the love of my life. Sometimes I read the dictionary just to hear all the pretty words... kind of scary when you think about it. Anyway, a note about my stories. I don't write fluff or PWP too often (although it can happen. You never know),and I won't touch romance with a ten-foot-pole (never having been in love, I don't know too much about it except in theory - my love of language doesn't really count), so fans of those kinds of stories won't find them here. I also don't write either smut or graphic violence. That said, what I do write is drama, character study, sarcasm, a hefty dose of lemon-fresh angsty goodness, and anything else that my (somewhat twisted) muse tosses in my direction. Mix well and serve.

Remember... the review button is your friend. (sings) Be kind to your web-footed authors, for that duck may be somebody's mother... well, maybe forget the singing. Anyway, PLEASE REVIEW! I won't threaten to not update my stories if I don't get X reviews, or anything silly like that, but they're always nice to get. Flames are welcome too, so that I can sit back and laaaugh at all the silly people with way to much free time on their hands. Bye now!

Blind reviews
There are certain "facts" that are generally regarded as truisms. Everybody knows that the sky is blue. It's obvious that the sun will rise again tomorrow morning. And everyone is capable of seeing pictures in their minds... right?
