I'm a girl, and I like to write. A lot.
It's probably more likely for me to fall in love with one (or more) of my own characters than an actual person--already have, in fact.

I titled my series Coven Four, but the titles of each story vary.
here they are so far, the ones that exist so far anyway:
Book One: Unnatural
i'll put the taglines below
What happens at a school where being normal means you aren't?
Sometimes, all you have to do is talk.
It doesn't matter what (or who) you do...
Even perfection has flaws.
Love can't always conquer all.
Update (8/19/08): I don't know why, but in my Unnatural chapters, at the top of each chapter page it keeps saying "Torn Chapter:" and i just want everyone who's reading that to know that Torn is the title of the next one in the series, and i have no idea why it's doing that
When I write, my mind works in anime mode, so I see my characters as real people and anime characters, and just for the people who want to know what my characters sort of look like--the characters I've revealed, anyhow--here's a listing:
Kiley Eileen Cord:
Liam Thomas Holtz:
Caleb Anthony Rivers:
Jeanette Carlyle Dorling:
Maxton Christopher Forge:
William Bradin Anderson:
Felicity Lissa Brigade:
If anyone has any requests to see a character in particular, just tell me in a review or email me and I'll post their actor/actress/singer/celebrity and anime/manga character!
Update(8/25/08): School's back on, and since I've finished the first two stories in the Coven series, "Caught"'s chapters will be posted at a slower rate because i don't want to hit a brick wall once I've run out of completed chapters for the time being. So, if you've been surprised and impressed at the rate I'd put up Unnatural and Torn, prepare to be disappointed for weeks on end, since these chapters will go up every week at the fastest.
LARGE AND VERY BAD NEWS: It seems that I can't get into my Fanfiction account today for one retarded reason or another, so I'll have to wait and see if I've better luck tomorrow, so for everyone that sees this and has accounts in both Fanfiction and Fictionpress, please pass it on to others who don't, since I'd been hoping to update Trade and some others today, but cannot do so due to aforementioned retarded stupidity. :D Thank you.
Well, at least until my computer stops being gay and I can login again.
Update(9/12/08): I apologize that "Caught" has been moving along at such a snail-ish rate, but though I admit that the plot bunnies are coming in by the thousands, these are fanfiction bunnies, and even if my readers/friends over at FF are Huzzah-ing (God, I love that word), I know that my FP readers/friends are probably...not. On the bright side, I'll be gradually posting up the drabbles that are centered around my Coven series--which have been sitting around in my thumb drive, dusting over, for about as long as "Unnatural" has--to keep everyone Huzzah-ing, even though not with as much enthusiasm. Also, I noticed that I'd forgotten to put the voices that sound in my head for the characters, so y'all can take a look at that.
Till next time, Himawari signing out.
Update(9/24/08): HUZZAH! HALLELUJAH! EGAD! REJOICE! THE PLOT BUNNIES HAVE RETURNED!
Hope the plot bunnies stick around.
Update(9/24/08)--Part 2: I've come up with the title and the tagline for the Alessia's backstory prequel thingy. I put it up there (points up) with the rest of the titles and taglines. So check it out and guesstimate away!
Update(9/29/08): School was unbelievable today. A neighboring school came for "team building"--probably part of "we should let the eighth graders have the most fun ever since they're never coming back (thank God). And...I must say--even though you probably don't care at all, these Updates are starting to become addicting--like writing in a journal.
The plot bunnies are laughing at me. And pointing.
Update(10/1/08): Please. I come in peace. Do not kill me. Put down the torches and the pitchforks and calmly step back. I come in peace, with one hand of plot bunnies, and the other the chapter all of you have been plaguing me for--and these plagues I fully deserved. This time, I swear to God that I WILL update by this weekend. And I could've cut the chapter right now, and left it as a pretty decent-sized chapter but not much happens, unless you want seven pages of Kiley doom and gloom. But I decided that I'll put all of this into one BIIIIGGG chapter, and it'll be worth the wait, trust me.
At least I hope it will.
Anyhoo, my best friend told me to apologize to y'all about keeping me on the phone and email and AIM with her boy/mom/school/highschoolfuture problems. She's the one I based Kath on--the KlutzyEmoSpaz, we call her (My friend, not Kath). And in her defense, we've been like this twists fingers since 4th grade, so we're bestestbestestforeverandever friends for four years now. And we've known each other since 2nd grade. So yeah.
In any case, look forward to the update, don't kill me, make sure you keep the pointed side of your pitchforks away from me and your torches blown out, and I'll have that chapter up and ready by this weekend.
Update(10/6/08): Sovay by Celia Rees. I'm not even a quarter way into this book and I already know I'm going to fall head over heels in love with it. It's just one of those girl-powering books that's not corny or cliche at all and just makes a girl want to punch her fist in the air and yell "I'M NOT TAKING ANY CRAP FROM ANYONE, SO HA!" for no reason at all. And it all starts out with a simple ballad/poem thing as a sort of prologue:
Sovay, Sovay all on a day
As she was riding over the plain
He delivered up his golden store
"From that diamond ring I would not part
Next morning in the garden green
"Why do you blush, you silly thin
"I only did it for to know
Update(10/10/08): It's beautiful. It's spectacular. It's amazing. It shocked me until i was tearing. It is...
THE FREAKING LAST TWILIGHT TRAILER!!
I have just died and gone to heaven. I have no words.
Update(10/22/08): Contrarily to what some of you might believe (or hope), I'm not dead. Yet. But we'll get back to that in eighty years. Anyhoo, I did take a short break to work on some fanfiction, since I haven't done anything over there in about three weeks, and then I had a little too much fun with the reviews and PMs in reaction to that one fanfic--KuroFai, for any who care--so I sort of let "Caught" dust over. But I pulled out the feather duster and I'm aiming to get the chapter posted here by...ooh, let's say...'round this weekend? It's close to the end, so I'll be finished before the New Year. Hell, I'll probably be finished before Thanksgiving. My birthday is also coming up, if any of you care...at all...an atomic bit...lol. I also had a mountainload of homework and my example thesis (if you hate Works Cited, raise your hand) and high school placement tests are coming faster than EVER. And Defeated is still going, too, and I'm thinking of leaving a period of time between "Caught" and "Flawed" to finish Defeated, since it's hard to write too major stories at once. In any case, hold me to that weekend due date for the next chapter. If I'm not terrified to be downstairs alone after my Halloween Party tomorrow, I'll try my best. And I have Friday off from school (some diocesan thing or another) so that's a plus, too.
Oh, aaaaaand...I GET TO HAVE MY BRACES TAKEN OFF NEXT WEEK!! I've only had them for a year, because i have awesome teeth, but it'll be nice anyways.
