IMPORTANT NOTE
March 2, 2013

I am in the process of a massive manuscript edit for Mortal Heart Volume I in the hopes that I can get it to a place where publication might be possible. Due to this, I haven't been able to work on as much new material as I would like. Rest assured, I will keep updating, it just may take me a while.
Much thanks for all of your patience and love.


Hello! I'm Mary (codename: LoveLiesBleeding2), a lover of chocolate, good stories/plots, true, touching (and often quite angsty) characters, writing, music, gothic design and style, and many other things. I am a college student, ex-dancer, and a writing-fanatic as well as a crazy spastic fangirl, and I work as a Page at my local library.

I started my writing career at FF.net, with a series of extremely bad-quality fanfics under this same username (which is still there, just inactive). I abandoned that part of my life, took some time to develop my style and taste for direction, and moved on to original fiction, mostly. I'm a romantic at heart, so the majority of what I do is romance with various other undertones and side-plots; though my goals are to write smut that is tasteful, unique, and slightly new to romance palates out there...dunno if I'm succeeding, though. But I do try!

So, please enjoy, and please comment/review if you read, because comments are what keep me posting. If you fav, you have my thanks, but please consider commenting as well, or I might lose interest in posting here...that's a very bad habit of mine. Anyway, enjoy! Thanks for reading!


PLEASE NOTE: Any reproduction of my stories is prohibited. Nothing may be scanned or distributed in print or electronic form without express permission except for private use; any breach of copyright will be met with the immediate removal of my work from the internet. Please respect this as you would any graphic artist's work.


BEFORE YOU READ: I would like to take a moment to offer something of a disclaimer in regards to my work, please read this, as it is somewhat crucial to understanding the way I work and my personal taking to acceptable reader-responses. If you have issues with heavy/not-so-nice language, possible gore/violence, nudity and/or material of a sexual nature, and what could possibly be considered blasphemy of scripture, please take this opportunity to leave my page because I do use these elements quite frequently and strongly. Everyone has his/her own tastes, but so do I, and I do NOT want to hear about your objections. I am not here to be trashed, insensibly flamed, or treated to tasteless badgering about offense. It is not my priority to offend anyone or anything, but I expect my readers to be mature and know their limits; I will do my best to keep everyone informed with notes and rating information, but I will not cater above or below my own desire to do so. I also do not accept flames saying "you call this a plot? what the hell are you smoking?" or "this sucks." If you don't like my style or my writing, that's too bad...so don't read it. And don't expect me to tolerate you being immature, either.

If you decide you are better off without my words, that is your choice, as it is your choice to proceed forward - and your choice alone. DO NOT expect me to censor myself when I have given you perfectly good enough warning here. If I receive a review I deem to be inappropriate response to my work, I will find you and rip you a new one. We will not be harboring or supporting censorship on this particular corner of the site.

Thank you for reading, enjoy the work if you're still here, and remember: I HAVE GIVEN YOU FAIR WARNING!


THE STORIES!

Believer: Based on a good friend's version of the Alice in Wonderland world, featuring a grown Alice facing her upcoming marriage to a British Earl and thinking back to her missed childhood and the dreamworld she made up, as well as the long-time friend she kept there in her heart. But at the reception before her wedding, whom does she spy but the very same man who had been her childhood friend, a confidant, and her beloved Mad Hatter? (Complete)

Caveat: Tension crackles between them; the same as it's been for three years, ever since he came as an inexperienced paralegal fresh from jail and a life stained by crime. She can't stand him, so compulsively driven by her righteous love of justice as the youngest Chief judge in almost a decade. Yet for as clear as she makes it, he can't help his natural fascination with that icy, impenetrable shield of hers, and can't help but wonder if he could break those steel-wrought defenses. It started out as a nothing more than a challenge to his ego, and became something more. (On Temporary Hiatus)

UPDATED: May 12, 2009. Part 2

Die Leidenschaft: "The Passion," set in Nazi-inhabited Germany during WWII, focused on a woman quickly turning cynical with exposure to the waste of war-torn humanity in her life as a Cabaret-girl and a professional whore. But apparently even she's not too cynical yet to long for what she can't have - the love of her personal patron, a Major-General of Hitler's Waffen SS troops, and a plainly, ridiculously confusing man. (On Temporary Hiatus)

BEGAN: April 1, 2009. Part 1 "Mein Herr"

Hell Sings: August, 1888. London, England. Set against the backdrop of Victorian England, a Vatican warrior-priest with a questionable faith sets out to solve the mysterious link between the abduction of a baron's eldest daughter and a series of other unpleasant events centering around possessions of a non-demonic nature, which only he had classified as such. What he finds is a murderous conspiracy strung together with madness and defined by church doctrine, and it isn't certain if he can destroy it, or protect his charge from being eaten alive by it. (On Temporary Hiatus)

BEGAN: September 18, 2010. "Introduction"

Hunter: An alternate ending to WWII leaves Europe and the rest of the world under the grasp of a bloated force of Nazism to crush order and democracy into hiding. Three generations later, determined to overthrow the mockery of government, the British monarchy forms a society of HUNTERS to wreak vengeance upon the pigs that sent them cowering to the sewers. Two of their best, partners in more ways than they themselves know, get a chance to bring it to an end. But it's a mission full of risk. (On Temporary Hiatus)

UPDATED: March 25, 2009. Part 6 "Six Gun Quota"

Mortal Heart Volume I - Above: Ordinary in every way but for her own little quirks, Lilith lives her life with an absolute notion of practicality underlined by fear from a difficult childhood. When she's introduced to the very real existence of divinity in the form of her very own guardian angel, she begins to understand that there is much more to life than she ever began to imagine; both wonderful and horrible. And then there's the fact that this angel, honor-bound to protect her from the demons lifting their glaring eyes, claims to be purely, truly, deeply in love with her. She doesn't believe in love...but she hadn't believed in God, either. (COMPLETE/EDITING)

REWRITING/EDITING: UPDATED: January 19, 2014. Chapter 32 "Amor Forem."

Mortal Heart Volume II - Ethereal: War has come, real and harsh and ugly, to the realms both mortal and immortal. Like a plague it seeps into everything it can reach across time and space, a ghost of ages long since past, an echo of a wrong that was never righted and nearly forgotten. Though all who are involved suffer, those whose hurt runs deepest are two hearts bound by fate and separated by duty. Angel and mortal girl...all they want is to be together. But there are ancient evils hidden in the dark, whispers of perilous grudges and dangerous plots that seek a way to destroy goodness forever, and very well may kill the very light of hope that can be found inside the shelter of love. (ON TEMPORARY HIATUS/IN PROGRESS)

ON TEMPORARY HIATUS. UPDATED: January 1, 2013. Chapter 21 "White Swan" added.


Mortal Heart - Bits and Pieces: Collection of pieces that have no place in the main storyline, from deleted scenes to abandoned plot arcs and character studies. Ratings may vary. (IN PROGRESS)

ADDED: January 30, 2013. "The Day We Cursed the Sky"

No one knows when the Carnival first appeared. It is only known that inside its cloth walls can be found sights beyond the wildest of imaginations. to succumb to curiosity is to play a game of chance with something greater even than your life; for it is said that the Devil rules this world of spectacle and wonder, and that he will gladly take your soul in payment for admittance.
