Author has written 3 stories for Humor, Life, and General.

Some Elaboration:

I still--after many years--fail to be an interesting or intriguing person. My apologies. I also can't write entertaining biographies to save my life, so let's just stick to the basics, shall we? (Proper use of shall! Gasp.)

I'm a writer, specifically a wannabe poet. I'm also a closet smartass. ;) I read books when I have the time. I collect manga when I have the money. I collect music when I don't. I'm short. I like coffee. My favorite characters (in books, movies, anime, manga, etc.) tend to be either psychotic or exceptionally volatile. On top of all of this, I slash excessively. I like my ears pierced too often. Chai tea has saved my sanity on several occasions. I hate waking up in the morning. When dreaming, it's not at all uncommon for me to switch genders halfway. Communication and human interaction fascinate me. Highly kinesthetic, I generally have trouble learning if I am not moving in some way. Androgyny, anatomy and nudity are all obsessions of mine. I like jewelry with skulls.

When not working on original fiction, I generally retreat into the realm of fanfiction. I've worked in about six series (Yu Yu Hakusho, Kingdom Hearts, Yuugiou, Escaflowne, Clover, Full Metal Alchemist) over the past two years. By and large my pieces are stupid, sappy, psychologically confusing and/or disturbing, surreal, pointless, slashy, strange, and occasionally worthless. Nonetheless, I keep writing.

Someday I hope to actually be called a legitimate writer by an outside force. Until then, I will continue drinking excessive amounts of caffeine, listening to music at obscene volumes, piercing my ears, mentally gender bending, playing with insomnia and complaining about the writing process when I have no business doing so.

That's all.

Speculations by The Talkative Spectator reviews
I'm not entirely sure what this is...But I think that a poem might be the closest thing, so that's what I'm calling it. Another good word might be "ramble", but that's not as impressive! This is about writing, and why I write...Care to read?

QuickSpun Colors by ShadowGal reviews
Inspired by a painting of two brightly colored spinning-tops, this is more about the people in the atrium with me, than it is about the picture. Not one of my best, but not bad, either.
