Hey! I'm Rose, and my profile is now entirely dedicated to the Vigilant, because that's probably what you’re here to read. The Piano Girl is a short, lighthearted romance, so you could give it a shot if you like my style but hate gore and crushing despair.

On to the Q&A!

I haven’t read the Vigilant, but I’m thinking about checking it out. What’s it like?

It’s like a hundred twenty five thousand words long, that’s what it’s like!! Okay, okay, I'm not here to scare you away. I'm here to tell you what that teensy little summary can't. The Vigilant takes place on modern-day Earth, so you won't need to know how many parsecs it takes to get to Gliese 581d. It's told in the first person, mostly by kids ranging in age from thirteen to twenty. The story is about trying and sometimes failing to keep their friends and family safe. They've got no clue what they're up against, and like the kid in your math class who sasses the teacher and fails all the tests, my characters hate what they can't understand.

Caution: the good guys drop like flies. I'm fond of putting them in rough situations, so there's lots of gore, angst, and confusion. Plus pretty much every trigger under the sun except for sexual assault. Plus some aliens. Gotta have some aliens.

I made it to the latest chapter.

I just- I am in awe. Come collect your cookie, you cool and amazing person, you.

Are we still in the “Bloodbath” phase that you talked about at the beginning of Jinks’ episode?

No. :D Which is not to say that no one else will die! The Sunnies have guns and the Seibues still have orders. But blood will no longer be prevalent enough to be an arc word.

Why are you so excited?

See above. But that’s not the only reason. We've entered a very special part of the story! And as you get a feel for what kind of special it is, I hope you enjoy the change! You know I do. I’m absolutely thrilled about the story I’m telling, and I hope you’ll stick around to listen. Be careful, because I tend to get emotitive and I may wave my hands and knock you over or something.

Current Status: Well. It's been a month, and you deserve an update on the situation since there's no update on the story. I'm still drowning in schoolwork. I will probably continue drowning in schoolwork until December break, and I really really hope that my ambition hasn't been completely fried by then. So I don't know. Check back in a couple months I guess? Wow, this is kind of awful and painful. I think this is a hiatus. But even walking between classes, I'm still composing character interactions and plotting a course through the story's black waters in my head. Just because I'm not writing doesn't mean I've lost my love of the Vigilant. Or my love of the people who read it. Bookmark this story, because it's not going away.

The Vigilant reviews
It's hard to call us a secret "organization," compared to the monstrous hive seething just under the surface of this little suburb. We're all that stands between the sleeping citizens and the shapeshifting mutants. Just a few high schoolers. This'll suck.

The Flower reviews
It's just a little something I wrote in bed a minute before I fell asleep. It turns out dreams have the most promise for metaphorical poetry.
