Hey guys :)

If you're wanting to know whether this account is still active, it is. But I only post to the Book of Shadows now. I'm still writing short stories and everything. But most of what I write now is written in a world that's extremely complex and based on a huge amount of worldbuilding - and I don't explain anything in the stories, because I write them for myself rather than an audience and I already know all of it. So if I posted them, they would be desperately confusing. I am planning on writing full-length stories that are made for an actual audience in this world, so when I get a few of those done I'll post them along with my pages and pages of worldbuilding notes in case anybody needs them. Which you probably will, because I have a tendency to info-dump. But the stories will take a long time, so don't expect them anytime soon. For now, the only active story is Book of Shadows.

Also, I'm currently working on a new version of Love and War, which now has a different title - along with many, many other things that have been changed. It's pretty much unrecognizable now except for the basic stuff: main girl and main guy are on opposite sides of a supernatural war. Twisted relationships, extremely murky pasts, destructive secrets, guns, violence, magic, etc. All that stuff's the same, but the details have been completely revamped. Like their names. And races. :) Anyway, that will probably be the first to go up.

I'm also working on several Others. (Haha. Worldbuilding joke. Don't try to understand it, it's only funny to me.) One of them involves arranged marriage, a too-independent female lead, women who can see auras, and unbelievably dangerous babies. It's stuck in the preliminary stages - I still don't really have a personality for the male lead, and the plot is more of a premise. I have to get the actual plot worked out still. The other one I'm working on is set in a legendary and completely anachronistic country hidden in the middle of China, where a palace full of supernatural creatures rules over the humans who live outside it. It's my only one starring a human. That one's still in the preliminary stages too, but I've got most of the world details figured out. I just need to finish working out characters and plot.

My Fanfiction account is Shadows-Kiss-The-Weak.


About Me

I'm sixteen and a junior. Physically: I'm pretty tall for a girl, a little over 5' 9", and curvy. I don't mean that as a euphemism for fat, by the way. I could stand to lose a few pounds maybe, but I mean curvy in the sense that I can balance three textbooks on my hip without struggling. It's extremely nice for passing periods in school. I have brown hair slightly past my shoulders with faint blonde highlights, and blue eyes. My light tan instantly fades after summer ends. I don't wear a lot of makeup, and I always wear brown eyeliner and brown mascara because black makeup looks too harsh with my pale coloring. Good luck defining my clothing style - even I can't do it. I switch it up, what can I say? Yesterday I wore a tight black Evanescence tee, charcoal gray cargo pants, a black jacket, a silver stake necklace, and an electric blue fishnet wristlet, with my hair down and covering one eye. Today I'm in a loose cobalt blue top, dark flare jeans, and colorful Converse, with my hair up in a ponytail and a few strands down around my face. Don't ask me, I don't know. I'll look a little on the goth side one day and then switch back to normal the next.

More of the trivial stuff: I'm good in school. I'm the kid you always want to kick because I never study for anything yet ace the tests effortlessly. The problem is that I'm so used to not doing any work that when homework strikes, I tend to hit the computer first, procrastinate, and not get it done. Now this year I'm under threat of total grounding if I get a single zero on an assignment... I actually failed fourth quarter of English last year because of some missing assignments... so I'm doing far better now. My favorite classes are zoology and French. Surprisingly, I've always disliked English class. I hate being told how to write and I especially hate that we never get to write narratives in class, because that's what I'm good at. I also despise most classic lit, but guess what we always have to read? Not that I'm surprised, obviously, but really? Huckleberry Finn? I hate trudging through the dialect in that book. I liked the Count of Monte Cristo, Of Mice and Men, and...um...I think that's it. The Crucible is turning out to be pretty good too. But I'm tallying two and a bit year's worth of English classes here. I'm better in French than I am in English. Way better. I'm fairly good in precalculus, but I don't like it. Economics sucks, end of story. I usually dislike history as well, but I have an awesome teacher this year and it's turning out to be pretty interesting. That just leaves photography, which is okay. I think that pretty much covers school.

Music is basically my life. I listen to it, I write it, I practically live in it. I sing and am learning to play the piano. I have the basics of music theory down: intervals, the circle of fifths, modes, spelling chords, and so on. I'm just working on ear training now. My voice is a little odd, which limits me. I'm not quite sure what's wrong with it—I've never taken vocal lessons. But I'm learning to work with it and figure out what sounds good for me. I've always been good at poetry, so you'd think I'd be great at writing lyrics. But if you look through my Book of Shadows, nearly all of it is free verse. I'm not used to working with set rhythms and rhyme schemes. I'm definitely getting better though. I still need a rhyming dictionary every once in a while, but poetry is my thing. Lyrics are just another version of that. I mainly listen to rock music, scattering my taste across different sub genres: metal, heavy metal, goth rock, symphonic metal, punk, emo, and emo-pop. My favorite bands are Evanescence and Black Veil Brides (no haters please...), and my current starred songs on Spotify include Let You Down by The Material, Dead Serious by Picture Me Broken, Sarcasm by Get Scared, and Lost In Paradise by Evanescence.

Book of Shadows reviews
I've moved all my poems into one book. Ones such as Frostbitten Dawn and Moon in the Window are here, as well as some new ones. Hope you like them! It's called Book of Shadows because that sounds more interesting-and Demon's Walls has some language, FYI.
