Likes: writing, reading, tea, crepes, rainbows

Dislikes: writer's block, bad vibes, unnecessary negativity

You've got one lifetime and one body. Love life, love your body.

These people are some of the best I know.

Don't listen to Windy, she's an awesome writer. ;)

P.S. Kudos to for our avatar pic.


Works-In-Progress:

Embracing Sunlight: (co-written) DISCONTINUED! It's been a long time coming. It's been months since we've last updated and while we love the story, we just can't finish it. We've been dragging it behind us for a while and maybe someday we'll pick it up, edit the whole thing and continue - but now's just not the time.

When the Angels Cried: (scatter) HIATUS! I wrote this as a gift-fic to Windy but I can't finish it. I loved the idea and characters when I came up with it, but the chapters I've written are fillers going nowhere and it's just not happening. I want to finish this for her and I'll come back to it eventually.


Windy

"scatter's" partner here. My partner here introduced me to fictionpress, it looked supercool. (no spaces required)

I'm a girl, I am addicted to reading, I play piano and clarinet, and have a strange love for mathematics. I'm a horrible writer and expect scatter to teach me a thing or two on here. Let me tell you, she goes deep. I guess you could tell from her quote there. She makes those up herself. I'm not good at that stuff. Expect most of the meaningful things to come from her for now. Seriously. I mean look at what she's writing, then look at me writing about looking at what she's writing.

I bet all of you guys are getting tired of reading this, so I'll leave most of this to my partner, scatter.

Signing off,

windy

Personal update: It's been forever since I've logged onto fictionpress, and I'm sure I've missed loads. I've been working out a few story ideas, and I'm toying around with the idea of posting them once I flesh out the plots and characters some more. So you might see a bit for of me soon. Have a nice day!

The Chance We Were Supposed to Have by EveningCicada reviews
My name is Patience, although I can't understand why, because I seem to lack a lot of it. I was assigned a pen pal for my writing course during my freshman year of high school. His name was Anthony. He lived in Florida & had a rare disease called cystic fibrosis. Once I turned 18, we decided to finally meet. I never did know what to expect, but I couldn't believe what I found.

We Love in Technicolor by AMessofPickles reviews
She came armed with spray paint cans, but no one warned the graffiti artist about boys with curly hair and heart-stopping smiles. She was a goner the moment he glanced at her art, opened his mouth, and asked if she was the vandal. That's when she started running. Needless to say, he's been chasing her ever since. Three shot.

The Youngest Malone (NaNo 2012) by Brittany Woods reviews
Alexa Malone hates being associated with her three older brothers.
