I'm a bad person. I haven't been here in forever. For this I apologize. Since I'm finishing up school, I hope I'll be able to post more. With a few of the stories on here, I've written more in them, but haven't gotten a chance to post the new stuff. Please forgive me.
About the stories:
"Vampire's Wake" -- Finished. Very cliche, but fun.
"Anapura Daylight" -- Steampunk, baby! This one's current. A young girl moves from a farming planet to a city planet, to pursue her dream of becoming an underworld surgeon. Also featuring magic, androgynes, cabarets, aliens and other fun stuff. A lot of people really like this one. Due to Almost Romeo's persistence, it is now possible to befriend this story on MySpace here.
"Dreamfreak" -- This is what I get for reading the first six Elric books, one right after the other. Finished.
"Die Romantic" -- Based on the song of the same name by Aiden. Note that I do not advocate nihilism or suicide, but that I do think they make good plot devices. Finished.
"This is Your Story, This is Your Ending" -- Remember those "Choose Your Own Adventure" books? How it was an awesome idea but they were all really crappy? This is a not crappy one. A lot of people have said they like this one, but I almost never update it. I'm not sure why.
"Uncle Charlie" -- Finished. However, this is an earlier draft. Significant changes have been made. If you really like it that much and want to know what it looks like now, drop me a line over at my Myspace (my website) or my Xanga (linked on the Myspace).
"The Lover" -- A Christmas present for the lovely Almost Romeo. Not for the faint-of-heart, my friends. She asked for a story about psychic vampires, and this tale of sickness, death and "lily tribe" relationships was born. Finished, an open to all.
"Tristan" -- I know I can't do it justice. But I tried, over the Christmas holiday. This is my retelling of the story of Tristan and Isolde, narrated by Tristan as he dies. I hope, someday, to do a better job.
"Real Romance" -- Another Tristan and Isolde-type story, but with a more... Bonnie and Clyde feeling. Contains language, sex, violence and, shall we say, modernist punctuation (dashes instead of quotation marks and long sentences with nary a comma in sight. Get used to it).
"Dust and Cobwebs" -- Where I put poems when I write them. Most are gothic, angsty or lusty (or some combination thereof), and the collection is therefore rated Teen.
"Rise" -- My mom keeps saying I should try writing something other than fantasy. So here's another attempt at that. I think it's pretty good, so far. I quite like the main character, to be perfectly honest.
"Red and Black" -- Weird. Just weird. I write stories in colors.
Enfin, a wee bit of shilling: I am proud to affiliate with the Yahoo! group Young Writers 101. They're very nice to me, and took me in when I was cold and had a runny nose. Okay, not really. But they're good people.
And that's pretty much all, folks. Nothing to see here. Move along.
