Author has written 10 stories for Life, Family, Friendship, Love, Religion, and Young Adult.
I'm a 21-year-old Creative Writing major at a pretentious liberal arts college. I'm a writer because I'm intuitive and majorly depressed and am paving my own route to healing. That said, I tend to hoard my original work in case I ever want to try to chase my publishing dream, so it may be rare that I post too much on here.
Here are just a few things about me in case I reviewed your work and you're wondering, "who is she to...(insert offense/praise here)."
Zodiac: Sun Scorpio, Moon Aquarius (I used to know more but I lost the sheet where I had it).
Sexual Orientation: Non-practicing celibate lesbian with an ocean of depraved fantasy madness and a sex drive that calls to only one person in the world, and unfortunately the most wrong person in the world.
Race: I prefer Polish over "white." White makes it sound like we're all just lumps of Pillsbury dough with no background whatsoever. No thanks.
Religion: Former Wiccan, current agnostic, future eclectic spiritualist.
Aura Color: At its purest, electric blue.
Issues: Equal punishment and shame for female rapists, equal marriage laws, health care reforms, awareness and prevention of rape and domenstic violence, destigmatizing and demedicalizing mental health, equality, human rights, stopping global warming.
Colors my hair has been: Blonde, honey blonde, red, burgendy, black, purple, blue, magenta.
Foods: Thai, Indian, Chinese (if it's good Chinese, none of that shady stuff that always has the worst imaginable bathroom), Middle Eastern food, Vietnamese food, Macaroni and Cheese.
Psychological conditions: Depression, General Anxiety, OCD, PTSD.
Favorite Books: Kushiel's Dart by Jacqueline Carey, Lolita by Vlaidimir Nabokov, Oranges are Not the Only Fruit by Jeanette Winterstrom, Psychic Self-Defense by Dion Fortune, Uglies/Pretties/Specials by Scott Westerfield, Keeping You a Secret by Julie Anne Pieters, Girl Goddess Number Nine by Fransisca Lia Block, Far From Xanadu by Julie Anne Pieters, Speak, Night Diving, The Mysterious Stranger by Mark Twain (definitely not least).
Favorite Films: Coraline, Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, Nightmare Before Christmas, Lost and Delirious, The Dreamers, Mean Girls, Saved!
Favorite TV: Daria, Family Guy, Dead Like Me, South Park.
Favorite Music: Nightwish, t.A.T.u., Within Temptation, Epica, Secret and Whisper, Jack off Jill, Ariya, Blutengel, Otep, Butterfly Messiah, Something Corporate, Evanescence, Alex Parks, Tegan and Sarah, Uh Huh Her, Plumb, The Cruxshadows, Nightmare of you.
My list of favorite music is short because I don't listen to very much, don't like very much, and don't use it as a substitute for a personality.
"You guys like swarms of things, right?" Bender.
"We have rudiments of reverence for the human body, but we consider as nothing the rape of the human mind.” - Eric Hoffer.
"All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident."
"There is no God, no universe, no human race, no earthly life, no heaven, no hell. It is all a Dream, a grotesque and foolish dream. Nothing exists but you. And You are but a Thought — a vagrant Thought, a useless Thought, a homeless Thought, wandering forlorn among the empty eternities" - Mark Twain: The Mysterious Stranger.
"Whenever you find that you are on the side of the majority, it is time to reform," Mark Twain.
"All you need in this life is ignorance and confidence; then success is sure." - Mark Twain.
"Sometimes I wonder whether the world is being run by smart people who are putting us on, or by imbeciles who really mean it." - Mark Twain.
“Rape's not something where you just go, "Well, get over it" or "Believe in love and peace, my child, and it'll all be over." Well, fuck you, that isn't the answer. It's a great thought, OK, but you can go and stick crystals up your butt and get on with it. I'm all for love and peace, but that's not the side I work on. If somebody would talk about it, or worse, joke about it, I would be ready to kill. That's not healing. It was a very long time after that before I was able to be with anyone again. And it has never been the same as it was before." - Tori Amos.
"What an ass you are!" he said. "Are you so unobservant as not to have found out that sanity and happiness are an impossible combination? No sane man can be happy, for to him life is real, and he sees what a fearful thing it is" - The Mysterious Stranger by Mark Twain.
"Sex is the one thing you cannot really swindle; and it is the centre of the worst swindling of all, emotional swindling... Sex lashes out against counterfeit emotion, and is ruthless, devastating against false love" - D.H. (David Herbert) Lawrence.
"Depression is rage spread thin" - George Santayana.
“Women must understand that simply attacking or hating men is just another form of disempowerment. A woman has to realize that when she makes a man crawl it doesn't give her power.” - Tori Amos.
"Where did we ever get the crazy idea that in order to make children do better, first we have to make them feel worse? Think of the last time you felt humiliated or treated unfairly. Did you feel like cooperating or doing better?" - Jane Nelson.
"Friends are generally of the same sex, for when men and women agree, it is only in the conclusions; their reasons are always different" - George Santayana.
And since this is bound to come up at some point or another, here is a list of types of stories I WILL NOT READ under nearly any circumstance ever, and if I do read them I will not be nice about it if I can help it.
1.) Any m/m slash story about a werewolf and a vampire in forbidden love, a gothy male angel named Andreaeusus falling for a demon (or a mortal) or whateverthefuck, or basically anything a girl between the ages of 12 and 26 who has no experience with homosexuality or even homosexual friends writes about gay guys for no other reason than "teehee girly bois are hawt!!"
2.) Any poetry written about how high school labels are bad.
3.) Poetry that reads as a rant.
4.) Consensual "hot" rape. If you want to delve into victim mentality and write a convincing piece about the breaking of a person's soul, I might be interested. But if you're just going to produce this "no no NO don't do this I'm a virgin oh nevermind OH YEAH!" bullshit, I will probably not have anything nice to say about it.
5.) Poems about religion that were written in ten seconds that go on to spark hours of "but Jesus loves you," "NO HE DOESN'T HE'S A MEANIE HEAD AND YOU'RE A BIGOT," style review debates. I was guilty of writing these as a younger teen.
6.) Any poem that uses a rose as a metaphor. For anything.
7.) Femslash that involves a muscular police officer/detective/lieutenant/etc.
8.) A "love story" that's actually based on what a 13-year-old wishes could have happened in his/her relationship with some douche who will probably grow up to be a gas station attendant with seventeen pregnant women-friends.
9.) Anything with names the author made up to sound gothier and edgier than normal names ie: Angelfrazlefus, Daemonitrix, Cayne, etc.
10.) ANY story written by an American who's obsessed with anime that is overloaded with Japanese-named characters or takes place in Japan for NO IMAGINABLE REASON that is in any way relevant to the plot.
There's probably more, but that's all for now.
