(ToH) Token of Hope: COMPLETE - A short poem based off something my English teacher said while discussing the movie Awakening.
Heroine: COMPLETE - A five page poem I wrote for a project in my seventh grade English class. My teacher gave me an A, a feat damn near impossible. I feel extremely proud of this poem, and I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it. Rhyming is haaaaaaard... (NOTE: NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH THE DRUG HEROIN. I'M TALKING ABOUT A FEMALE HERO, NOT A DRUG. THANK YOU.)
Sculpting: COMPLETE - A short story I wrote for a project on the Italian Renaissance in social studies. It was supposed to be a short story detailing Michelangelo's sculpting process. For the record, I have ABSOLUTELY NO FREAKIN IDEA if he really acted like that. Call it poetic license.
Disbelief: COMPLETE - A true story. My dad's cousin's daughter was killed in the Virginia Tech Massacre. This was written to help get some emotion out.
Angels Never Die: PLANNING - Sybet and I have decided to do a co-written thing. It's about angels, and no, it has nothing to do with TFFG. Not posted yet, will be soon though. I hope.
(BC) Bunny Center: IN PROGRESS - Just a place to put all of my plot bunnies that jump out of my head. All ideas are up for adoption unless otherwise specified. There's gonna be stuff in here that I know I want to continue.
(1) TFFG - Prologue: The balance of power is about to be tipped... but to which side?
Turandot: PLANNING - "She was unattainable, and the large collection of severed heads proved it. A silly exiled prince would meet the same fate as all the rest... right?" For the record, yes, this is Turandot the opera in story form, with some of my bits added in. It's gonna be a fun ride...
(EoF) The Edge of Forever: COMPLETE - The sixth anniversary of 9/11 has come and gone. This is my way of praying for those who lost someone.
(SD) Silver Dust: COMPLETE - A little something I wrote out of boredom when I was in Maine. Enjoy my random musings!
Secrets: IN PROGRESS - Ooh, original title. :shot: Anyway, something I really wish had happened to me in school. Dedicated to Meredith Kennington. And now I've turned it into something of a series. It'll end when the secret is out. And if you have no idea what I'm talking about, you don't go to my school. So don't ask me about it. (I'm onto you, stalkers...)
Footprints: COMPLETE - Mm. Just a random thing.
Pennies: IN PROGRESS - Hey, I like this title. Anyway, this will be the 100 Themes challenge from dA. I know you're supposed to do it for a fandom but... IhadthisreallycoolideaforabunchofthemandnowIwanttodoitforeverythingelse... don't judge me. And it's called "Pennies" 'cos, like, it takes 100 pennies to make a dollar, and there's the old saying, "penny for your thoughts" and... yeah.
Hair: IN PROGRESS - A series of shorts heavily inspired by the soundtrack for Hair. And I don't care WHAT you say, THIS IS NOT A FANFICTION. Having gotten that out of the way... it's all from the point of view of some guy who I haven't thought of a name for. It'll probably be something biblical.
Thursday: COMPLETE - Yeah, I had a bit of an off day. So... don't take this too seriously.
(DoL) Differences of Light: IN PROGRESS - The sidekick story! Ta da! Chapters come slowly.
(WPB) Where Poppies Blow: COMPLETE - A Memorial Day tribute.
(SPW) A Study of Poetic Warfare: COMPLETE - My friend JC (not Jesus, as much as I wish it was...) wrote this weird poem on the English board, then he started challenging people to write their own poetry, and... it got crazy.
(NSYA) If I Never See You Again: COMPLETE - I was watching the YA acting class, and their last exercise got me thinking. Also, I tried styling the first part after Neil Gaiman's The Faery Reel. Don't know how well that turned out. You decide.
(TM) Theater Magic: COMPLETE - I love the theater. And Madam Butterfly. This was written in the middle of opera season. I've gone to see Butterfly four times out of four. Yes, I know I'm a nerd.
(OLD) One Lovely Day: COMPLETE - Hahaha, OLD!! That's classic. Anywho, a practice in romance.
