Author has written 1 story for Fantasy.

i'm back. :)
hopefully.

if i can, y'know. crank out more than a chapter every two years.

fiat lux
(aka i am very self centered)
(i hope that's not really the case, though)
i'm not 15; i'm not chinese; i'm not interested in fashion; i do not want to be a fashion designer/historian/editor/novelist/archeologist
most importantly i do not like to read. i am also not sarcastic.
and i am not a dreamer, not an artist, not a liberal. and i don't like to debate politics.
i don't want to live in europe, i don't love old things, i'm not a big fan of the yankees (27! WHOO!)
i hate beautiful things.
and therefore i hate vladimir nabokov's writing and am not endlessly envious of it.

et docere et rerum exquirere causas
(aka stories?)

to be posted when i get somewhere:
titian (a retelling of the little mermaid)
ON HOLD until i find some inspiration

the lonely hearts club (cliches gone wild)

idk what else because the muse has run away again and i can't find her.
