About Me

I'm a political science major at Yale University. I haven't paid much attention to either of my two ongoing stories on ficpress, as juggling work, classes, guys, and that eternal question of what-the-hell-am-i-going-to-do are pretty trying. Also, I've recently become a little too cynical for my age, so both of these works-in-progresses will probably not be updated. Nevertheless, I am VERY grateful to those of you who still read and review my stories, begging me to please update. Maybe it will happen, but probably not in the near future =(

Thank you so much for the encouragement, feedback, praise, etc!


Notes on Works-in-Progresses:

The World at My Feet - the high school fic.

The Die is Cast - my regency romance a la Georgette Heyer fic. No, please don't ask me if I read trashy romance novels. I never have. Never will. Especially not bodice-rippers with Fabio on the front cover. I am all about good, graceful literature. That said, the only reason I even posted chapter 20 was because it'd been lounging on my computer for a while, so I put it up. I am aware it's not all that great, and maybe not exactly in the same style. I haven't read any Georgette Heyer in a very long time; and as this summer, I am not even remotely near my usual collection of books, I have not had a chance to refresh my memory.


Top 5 Books:

1. One Hundred Years of Solitude

2. A Tree Grows in Brooklyn

3. Anna Karenina

4. The Great Gatsby

5. Special Topics in Calamity Physics

Howl's Moving Castle (favorite childhood book)
