Get wasted on love
Get wasted on life
Get wasted on anything that's right

Rant: Check out A Teenage Girl's Guide For Relationships! It's a sort-of sequel for A Girl's Guide To High School Relationships.

Please please please check out my fan fiction! My current project does not require you to be familiar with the fandom to understand the story and it's updated regularly. Really, I wouldn't have the gall to advertise for it on an original fiction site if I didn't think it had something to show off. You can find it through my homepage or read the trailer here.

Current Stories

Nope, still no original stories up here, but I can safely say that restarting one of my old stories isn't such a far-fetched idea anymore. After all, I rewrote one of my fan fics and now the thing is turning into a novel. If I could do that, it wouldn't surprise me if I could turn one of my old ideas into a long, drawn-out story. However, seeing as the fan fic I'm focusing on is my major project right now, it will be a while before I return to the realm of original fiction. I will keep posting whatever poetry or essays or whatnot I believe are good, but nothing long-term will be going up for a while. Be rest assured though, I will be back. Muahahahahahaha! (Ok, that was lame, I know.)

A Time of Innocence reviews
Born out of necessity and angsty times. This came to mind after a few emotional and one mental breakdowns about trying to please parents who are never satisfied. In society's caste system, the lowest are definately the kids.

Victims of the Grim reviews
I was fated to be emotionless and to worship death, even my own, outside the organization. I can count how many times I've met somebody and not killed them on one hand. I am trained in stealth, like a cat, a jaguar, a black jaguar. I am eight years old.

This is actually a HAPPY poem! [gasps] I haven't written a happy poem that wasn't forced in three years! Well, I finally realized who was my closest friend, so I wrote about her even though she doesn't like this kind of stuff. I love annoying her.
