Bonjour à tous!

I'm twenty one. Recently graduated psychology major.

Books, I love books. I'm an avid reader. Fiction is my escape from the real world.
Although I read all kinds of books, my predominant genre changes every few months. At the moment, I'm reading a lot of historical fiction.

Unfortunately for me, I'm also a 'completer'. No matter how horrible I find a story, I'll finish reading it. Of course, I'll make my life hell while doing it.

I'm a procrastinating perfectionist. Probably the reason you don't see any of my stuff up here on Fictionpress. Maybe sometime in the near future?? (snorts)

I have a huge wildlife and animal obsession. I'm really passionate about them. One of my dreams is to get involved in wildlife conservation.
I can even tolerate all sorts of creepy crawlies. In fact, I've even saved quite a few insect lives - beetles, moths, worms, fireflies, even those
winged little bugs that are attracted to light.

However, I have this HUGE phobia of cockroaches (I believe it's called Katsaridaphobia). I run screaming every time I spot one. (shudder)

I have a mild case of Trichotillomania, which is a condition involving strong urges to pull out one's own hair. Nothing serious, just gets on my nerve sometimes.

My previous user-name was Winged Unicorn. Wasn't particularly fond of it.

Am currently judging the Best One Shot Category at FPSSA!!

g'night psycho, I thought to myself. There was a split second where I wondered who I was talking to, the invisible boy spooning me from behind...or me..the girl who somehow managed to summon him back from the darkest corners of dream world.

The Bubblegum Fairy and The Bad Boy by G0bSmackt reviews
Even if it was cliché, the too good girl finally tamed the too bad boy. It had taken a bubblegum chewing fairy to find his heart and all he wanted to do now was be worthy. And all she wanted to do was be his. SKoW Member Challenge - Bubblegum

Euphoria by Hotkitty reviews
Rent is bored. Rose is curious. Parker's just desperate and JJ's a sheep. The solution? Killing a bunch of random people in the name of spin the bottle.
