UPDATE 11/30/16

In case any of you who are reading OUC read this, sorry about the month-long break! November ended up being really, really busy for me (among other things, mostly writer's block), so I'll get back to writing as soon as I can and get the next chapter up within the next couple weeks! Again, sorry for the wait!

UPDATE 9/1/16:

For those of you reading Once Upon a Cliché, and wanted a recap up to chapter 12, here are some Google docs I hope will be useful:


Summary (chapter by chapter or overall)

I figured it was the least I could do since I haven't updated in so long. Thanks!

Hey there!

I don't have much to say, so here's all you need to know about me:

1. I love to write! (Obviously.) But I kind of suck at it usually, so let's hope it's been getting better.

2. I'm just a lost child stuck in an adult body. Well, adult-ish. I really have no idea what I'm doing half the time, just in general.

3. I will often return reviews if I see people have taken the time to jot down a thoughtful review on any of my works. So don't be shy! I like to hear what people think, good or bad! :)

4. I love meeting people on Fictionpress, and I've been told I can be a grammar Nazi, so if you ever need any help with editing or you'd like a beta reader, I'm here!

And finally,

5. Nalene Pen is just a pen name (yeah, I know, Pen. Dumb right? I've contemplated changing it but I'm too lazy now). "Nalene" is an anagram of my real name. Kudos if you can guess it.

Yay, 5! My favorite single-digit number. Anyway, that's it. Overall though, don’t be afraid to ask anything or leave a message! I don’t bite…usually.

Evolution by whats-with-humans reviews
It's hard enough being a socially deficient, awkward-as-hell peer mediator, but add to that a stupidly gorgeous and equally terrifying delinquent whose mission in life is to make me miserable, and you start to get a picture of how incredibly screwed I am.

Renegade by A Smile and a Bruise reviews
I used to look at my soul mark with a sense of fondness and excitement at the prospect of one day meeting my soulmate. I dreamed of traveling the world and learning about new cultures. I dreamed about sleepy Sunday mornings in bed and stolen kisses in the kitchen. What I never dreamed of was being rejected by the one person the universe had specifically chosen for me. Bummer.

A Summer Solstice by NehemiaH reviews

Does This Make You Uncomfortable? by DancingChaChaFruit reviews
She stuck her hand in the back pocket of his jeans. "Does this make you uncomfortable?" He smiled and slid his own hand into the back pocket of the shorts she was wearing. "You'll have to try harder than that." It's funny what games become. -Oneshot-

Once Upon a Cliché reviews
