Name: Melissa

Dislikes: I'm not going to tell you what I dislike, because if you look at my profile, you can probably guess. Instead, I am going to let you imagine that I wrote down everything you dislike, then we will have something in common and you will read my stories! So lets assume I SAID I dislike (insert name of crappy but good looking boy band here) and( insert name of talentless but good looking Canadian pop star here) and also (insert name of boring but good looking vampire romance here). Yay! We hate the same things!

So I am a seventeen year old girl living in Londinium (Hurrah for 60s Batman!). I got an account on FictionPress to practice my writing skills, and get mean reviews from total strangers. I want to see which of my ideas work, and which don't, so reviews are appreciated. I want to be a writer or a comic book artist when I am older. I think moths are cool because they cant fly. That is all.

You can follow me on twitter if you want. Or not. I don't care.

Okay, I got this from Dark818 s profile and thought it would be fun to try out

The Horse Prince by C Terrance reviews
I was spending my summer vacation in Virginia, working at Burger King, waiting to go back to my sophomore year in college. Then my car battery died...and I met a talking horse...and rode through a door in the sun. And nothing was quite the same after that. There's dangers, mud, pimples, and certain death, but one thing's for sure: it's better than flipping burgers.
