The Road to Halcyon reviews
War in a far-off land, a battle between the monarchy and the revolutionaries trying to bring about a democracy. History does not repeat itself. Or does it?

Flag Desecration Speech reviews
Hmm... let's see... The title is pretty self explanatory. I love this speech, though... I really do. I wrote it for my oral comm class freshman year, and it's all about protecting our rights and whatnot. If you like politics, please read.

Crazy As Loons
This was the essay I wrote (at the last possible minute) about Ken Kesey's "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest." It took three hours just to do the MLA alone. It's pretty good, though.

Take the Time reviews
I have NO idea what I had in mind when I was writing this. I was trying to write it from the point of view of somebody, but I forgot who. In any case, it's rather odd.

For Shakespeare's Helena
This was a poem I had to write for my 8th grade lit class. The style was really weird and very specific with the directions for it, although I can't remember the name of the style. Anyway, its for Helena from "A Midsummernight's Dream."

This story kinda takes place in the future(ish), and although it can definitely stand alone, it has a lot to do with my other story, 'Obsidian.' Roger is an awesome character, and my grammar isn't bad. Please R&R!

Of everything I've written, this is my favorite, simply because it applies to so much. It's like one big metaphor for life, love, war, history, religion, everything.

Nobody reviews
It sounds like it might be a angsty, stupid example of typical teenage poetry, but my lit teacher liked it last year, and the title is rather deceptive...

Holy What? reviews
This is more or less a ranting poem, i.e. the real reasons behind the Crusades, whether or not those are mentioned in the poem. It makes me mad.
