Author has written 5 stories for General, Life, Fantasy, and Fantasy.

Hullo there. Sasha here. Aspiring novelist, currently only capable of short stories and really, really bad free-verse poetry. I post stuff on here as a backup, for posterity, and on the off chance that I might gain a following. Or a critic. Those are fine too.
Soy ecuatoriana y espaƱola, por se acaso. E parlo un po' d'italiano.

I like to talk, write, sing, and make friends. So you can send me a message in English, Spanish, or Italian.

I'm an anglophile, Mediterranean, and American. So I have a feeling you just might find me pretty interesting. I'm certainly not homogenous.

My interests are:

- BBC Sherlock, and the Doyle literature

- Elizabeth Gaskell (yes, there was a cross between Jane Austen and Charles Dickens, and it was good)

- Flamenco (singing & dance)

- science (I adore biology, but I like chemistry a lot and I respect physics)

- all math that's not geometry (I know it's made for a lot of advances, but I can't stand doing PROOFS)

- philosophy (in conversation, not classical)

- and practically everything else under the sun. Try me. =3

Infinity by Cylindrical Minute reviews
"The 'best year of our lives' came up tasting of college apps, coffee, Parliaments, projects, scandal, Svedka, and sleep-deprivation." Six high school seniors versus the final hundred and eighty days.

Instead of Doing Work by Cylindrical Minute reviews
These poems all have the common denominator of school. Maybe they were written in school, or about the education system, or about someone I go to school with, but they're all alike in that respect.

Old Master scraps
I am, for personal reasons, using this as a repository for scraps of work around this real-life concept of "My partner looks like how Renaissance artists painted and sculpted the old gods." And I promise you, it's even funnier in real life.

Children of the Flint-Finder
She hears the stories, with wide eyes, as all the children do, huddled around the fire as the storm rages outside. Flashes and mighty booms; she looks but can't see the lightning god, as she can see all the birds and beasts and gods and heroes whose forms are outlined by the stars, whom in turn she cannot see when the lightning god is out.

Informality Can So Often Be Mistaken for Vulgarity
I never could write in proper verse. Can be taken as a companion piece with This Is Me When I'm Formal.

Tales from Nieuburgh reviews
Short-story series, featuring a smallish cast of teenagers in a modern-day, tight-knit New England community, close to NYC: think New Haven, CT. No angst, some sex, few curse words. Not too much schoolwork, but a lot of lessons learned.

This is Me When I'm Formal
I grew up with my dad declaiming Spanish classics and a slim volume of all Shakespeare's sonnets. For all that, I have no idea what it means to write within a form. These are my attempts; they're not too bad. I hope.
