Author has written 4 stories for Sci-Fi, Humor, Supernatural, and Fantasy.

Go here to see pictures of my characters.

"Everyone seems normal until you get to know them."

DANGER/WARNING/ATTENTION/CAUTION/NOTICE/etc.!!
Some things you should know before you read my stories:
1. I AM STRANGE, get over/used to it.
2. I tend to use the same character(s) over again. I'm hoping to find that one good story that will make me a millionaire, and I want to have my favorite character(s) in it. (Hey a girl can dream can't she.)
3. I use some inside jokes in my stories. If you have any questions about them just ask, but be prepared for some possible scarring for my friends and I are STRANGE.
4. My stories start out with short chapters, but they will get longer. I promise. Mostly the reason for that is because I just want to post my ideas before my readers get irate.
5. A lot of the time I re-post some chapters because I edit them and add or take out parts. So, if something is mentioned in a new chapter and you think I haven't referred to it earlier I might have edited a previous chapter and added it. So, sometimes you might have to skim over older chapters and find new added parts.
6. Sometimes I don't post anything for a story for a long time. This is due to school, homework, sleep, sports, and because I'm fucking lazy. Also working on multiple stories at once sometimes means I'll post one a lot and then stop and work on another one for a while. I work on the one that I have the most ideas in my head that need to get out before I forget them.
7. If you review my stories I'll review yours, but I warn you I review like a plague of locus. I'll read all your works and continue reading you works in progress, and then I'll read works by people that review your stories. So, don't review my stories unless you like getting lots of reviews.
