Author has written 26 stories for Manga, Love, Life, Song, Essay, General, Fantasy, Haiku, and Romance.

Some words of wisdom:

Words are the physicians of a mind diseased.- Aeschylus

Life is pain, Madame. Anyone who tells you different is selling something. - Westley, The Princess Bride

Stultum est timere quod vitare non potes.- Latin proverb - It is foolish to fear what you cannot avoid.

Now, on to me:

Name: Rachel

Age: 18

Grade:12

Interests: Writing (duh), reading, RPGs, anime, kendo, karate, jiu jitsu, mythology.

Future Plans: becoming a criminal psychologist and a published author.

Favorite genres: Angst and fantasy. I don't do so well writing about the real world.

Body & Soul: fantasy/supernatural/drama. HIATUS

Otherworld: Back up and better than ever. If you count more violence, angst, and drama as "better." I think maybe I'll ask my brother to write a new summary for it as I suck at getting a decent description in with the character restraints...

Poetry: My poetry is generally only written when I'm in depressed moods or states of deep contemplation, so they generally come out dark and angsty. That's really all there is to say about that.

Enjoy my stuff.

Time Marches On by Inyo reviews
Everything is transient. If that's not an incentive to seize the day, I don't know what is. After all.. for whom the bell tolls, time marches on.

My Life in a Year reviews
Basically what the title says. This is the story of me, written in fairly poetic prose, drowning in metaphor, and all in barely 1000 words. ...So flowed the river of my life from season to season like the path of a year.

Everyone needs their pain to be acknowledged, even if they don't have the strength to tell people how they feel. The nonverbal cries for help can be the ones that most need to be addressed, and are also the most ignored. A poem for J.

Strangely enough, this came out while I sat in English class, staring at a piece of paper. It's a sort of metaphor for life... and sort of not. Tell me what you think.

Beautiful Deception reviews
In English class last year we spent a few weeks reading sonnets, and all of them were about how wonderful love is. I got sick of it and decided to write one about love from another point of view.
