"Don't you know me? I'm little Pheobe!"

- Pheobe Meryll, Gilbert & Sullivan's "Yeomen of the Guard" act 1

Salutations. I am a young female nerd who recently obtained her associates degree in liberal arts and is currently studying violin performance and writing. I am half Mediterranean and half long-naturalized Eastern European, and I've lived in America all my life. I like opera, classical literature, heavy metal, anime, manga, chocolate, faery tales, action movies, superheroes, Greek Mythology, existentionalist philosophy, astronomy, bubble baths, almond butter, and the Beatles.

I recently came to the realization that these little bits and pieces of writing are getting embarrassingly old. However, I can't bring myself to delete them. I don't have many completed fics at the moment, and I definately don't have the time to become an active member again, so for now I'm just going to put a little guide to what is here. PLEASE READ BEFORE BROWSING MY WORKS!

Butterfly - This is currently my longest completed story. I wish I could say I'm happy with it, but the sad truth is that it needs a lot of revisions. I still love the premise, but I'm planning to go back and "de-cliche" it.

The Chronicles of Klane Omendeth - The only other chapter story I have here...I never thought much of it, but upon going back and reading it, I think it's okay. It's melodramatic, but it has some of my better characters in it. shrugs

I have some character art on my deviant art page.
