Welcome. I would offer you a muffin, but I find that cyber muffins just aren't the same. I love reading and writing, and as a result I'm here writing this instead of having anything resembling a social life. I have a Fanfiction account under the same name, which is currenently quite abandoned, and a dA account which contains basically everything here plus photos. I think I'm a decent writer, but I have room for much improvement, so please help me on my way with suggestions in the form of reviews. If I don't update, and can't provide a good reason, feel free to send a message providing a proverbial kick up the rear. My style varies sometimes, but is consistently uncertain. Oh, and I love my pot- my teapot!!

I highly recommend the artwork of http://www.fictionpress.com/u/608443/. Simply amazing!

A good bookshop is just a genteel black hole that can read- Terry Pratchett

"I would really like to wake up… but I am awake..."

"My advice to all those who are going to find themselves is: stay exactly where you are. Otherwise you are in great danger of losing yourself forever."

"Life is one huge lottery where only winning tickets are visible."

"We're alive, you know, but we live this only once. We open our arms and declare that we exist, but then we are swept aside and thrust into the depths of history."

-Jostein Gaarder, The Solitaire Mystery

Far out in the uncharted backwaters of the unfashionable end of the Western Spiral arm of the Galaxy lies a small unregarded yellow sun. Orbiting this at a distance of roughly ninety-eight million miles is an utterly insignificant little blue-green planet whose ape-descended life forms are so amazingly primitive that they still think digital watches are a pretty neat idea. This planet has - or rather had - a problem, which was this: most of the people living on it were unhappy for pretty much of the time. Many solutions were suggested for this problem, but most of these were largely concerned with the movements of small pieces of paper, which is odd because on the whole it wasn't the small pieces of paper that were unhappy. -Douglas Adams

Updates:

Powers: On hiatus until I can figure out where the hell it's going...

Maybe to come: More short stories as a result of procrastination.

Magpie: A sardonically-written humorous thriller... I think.

The Separation of Jekyll and Hyde: In-progress, going pretty well.

Deep: Stuff underwater.

Akane: Violent longish short story/ shortish normal story.

The occasional special insanity.

Anything else my twisted mind chooses to haunt me with.
