Author has written 3 stories for General, and Haiku.

Hello. I am the Crystal Cavalier. I suppose I should give you a little about me. Okay then...

Name: Crystal Cavalier

Real Name: sha'an't say =P

Age: 18 but shh!- don't tell anybody!

Gender: female. Definitely female.

Interests: it tends to vary from month to month. But pretty and intriguing poetry will always keep me hooked. Haiku is a new interest of mine, as I find long stodgy and overly-metaphoric poems are a bit off-putting lately (not to mention I don't have time to decode them all). Simplicity is haiku's greatest appeal, as greater fans than I have known for so much longer. Anyway, I've begun writing some haiku, the first of which I've put up, in the hopes of some feedback or encouragement.

Pet-peeves: I don't know if I'd call myself a Grammar Nazi, but things like using the wrong 'their'/'there'/'they're' irks me to no end. Therefore, if you see it in any of my work, please point it out. I will promptly bash my head in, then fix my mistake =D

Beside grammar, simple spelling mistake are annoying, but we all get things wrong (I am terrible for typos) so I'm a little more forgiving. Beyond that I can't think of anything else, although there are more!

Anyway, that's all for now. Feel free to browse through what I have posted below. I know it's a little sparse at the moment, but I'm hoping to fix that soon enough =)

Oh, and one last point. Some may notice that the poem 'Bullied' is the same as naioka1992's. This is the same account, and the same author. I'd neglected FP for a long time, and had done a lot of growing up in the meantime. When I returned I wanted a fresh start, and cleared out much of my old work. 'Bullied' is the only survivor at present. This is not a copy, a repost or a theft. Thank you.

Echoes by Isabella of Scotland
There’s no artificial lighting here, just the grey sunbeams edging through the riotous stained glass. Arches soar up across the roof, almost out of sight, and tiny traces of gold hint at its colourful past." A reflective piece.

Tranquility by Inanna Skili reviews
A poem I wrote about my favourite cemetery. I recently found out that they're planning on puting another big box store next to it, as if the fact that they already moved the stones for a parking lot isn't bad enough.
