Hello, I'm Aiarada Alyan.

The inspiration for the things I write comes from my life. Not the life lived by others and my reactions to it. Sometimes it might be difficult to see that when reading my stories, but it's there. Since the time I was young - let's say about fifth grade - I've stopped writing purely happy tales, because it is not happiness that inspires me. Thanks to the fact that my life is generally very happy, I am not overwhelmed with ideas to put into written words, which is fortunate; I sometimes fear that if something very negatively emotion ever happened to me, I might have a hard time writing fast enough to get all my ideas out. For me, a little inspiration goes a long way, and because my life seldom frusturates me very much, I am seldom overwhelmingly inspired. I guess it's a fair trade-off.

Please check out my stories, including my newly-published play "I Can Make a Difference!" a parody on the modern American student's eagerness to achieve and help the world be a better place for everyone. I submitted it to a playwriting competition - let me know what you think of it!!

My stories tend to be longer than many that I've seen on fictionpress, but please don't let this daunt you - if it helps, Curse is about eight pages long in MS word, The Last Laugh is about ten pages long, and "I Can Make a Difference!" is about thirty pages. It really isn't as long as it seems. I just updated Curse - feedback on the new material would be nice!!

When I'm not on Fictionpress (which, understandably, is most of the time), I play the flute and the harp, go to school, sing in the school choir, and do drama - I especially like musicals.

So...please take a look at my stuff and read it with an open mind and a critical eye. Thoughtful feedback is most appreciated.

P.S. Sorry, I know I said I was done, but I have just this one last comment: my profile picture is of Balanced Rock in the National Park Garden of the Gods, Colorado Springs, near where I used to live. I wrote a poem on it in seventh grade. If you are ever around that area, go and see it. It will inspire you, as it inspired me.

In today's modern world, Americans are all too eager to help - though sometimes their idea of 'helping' does not translate practically. Set in a typical suburban high school with the parody of the perfect female protagonist.

In a futuristic society ominously like our own, where discovery and learning are considered behind the current residents, the unquenchable human spirit within some citizens leads them to leave their peaceful home; used to be called "Hidden Horizon."
