Author has written 10 stories for RENT, Gladiator, and Twilight.
My name is Leah Rachel. I live in the lamest city with the lamest people, so there isn't much of inspiration. Besides, I prefer to use my imagination. I don't write too well, (I know that so you don't have to tell me; it just makes me feel suckier) because I'm only sixteen. I haven't been taking any proper writing classes yet for school, but in my junior year I will begin doing so. Writing is a career path I have often thought about taking up.
I'm a junior and not to fond of school. The only thing that makes it tolerable is my friends and boyfriend. But I'm young, and not too amazing at the whole writing thing, as I said earlier. Go easy on me.
I like a lot of music too. Tons of different types. My taste varies from anything; Disturbed to Toby Keith to Aventura to Ja Rule. There is so much music out there that I am just in love with. I have no idea how someone can just like one type of music. It's just beyond me.
Some of the artists I listen to are: Three Days Grace, Crossfade, Christina Aguilera, Disturbed, Aventura, Enrique Iglesias, Breaking Benjamin, Scars Of Life, Escape The Fate, ICP, My Chemical Romance, Sugarcult, RENT, Taylor Swift, Smile Empty Soul, Usher, Akon, Twista, Theory of a Deadman, Green Day, Mario Vasquez, Hinder, Saliva, Linkin Park, Buckcherry, Sweeney Todd, Finger 11, Flyleaf, Atreyu, Evanescence, Sences Fail, The Used, Tim Mcgraw, Chris Cagle, Chris Brown, Don Omar, Ne-Yo, Crossfade, Sean Kingston, The Killers, Blake Shelton, Shinedown, 10 years, Toby Keith, Frankie J & Baby Bash, Papa Roach, Puddle of Mudd, R. Kelly, Seether, Fall Out Boy, Creed, City High, Beyonce, 12 Stones, Tony Rich Project, Chad Brock, Switchfoot, Nickelback, 3 Doors Down, Eve, Ludacris, Ja Rule, LL Cool J, J-lo, All American Rejects, Adam and Andrew, Alicia Keys, Boys Like Girls, and like a million more.
About My, and other's, Fan Fiction:
My first fics are the worst (I was younger then), and, I feel, that my newer ones are so much better. I don't always try to write well, often just scribbling down (or in this case typing) words. When I put my mind to it, and try especially hard, I can accomplish what I want: something worth while. The fic, that I think, shows my best writing skills is "Revival" and I recommend reading that one over any other one. It's long, kind of annoying and angsty, but I actually did okay on it.
Rent fics are my favorite to read and write. They interest me in so many ways; but mainly the obvious: Rent is the most amazing play/musical/movie of all time. If you disagree, that's okay, but I do hope you enjoy my fics, and other Rent fics, as much as I do.
Everyone does this so I'll join in. My Favorite pairings (in order):
Twilight fics have also caught my interest from time to time. Obviously, the whole Twilight series is a great set of books. Not my favorite (Without You: Memoirs of Love, Loss, and the Musical Rent is my obvious favorite as I have a weird fascination/obsession with Anthony Rapp), but Stephanie Meyer writing skills simply amaze me every time I pick up one of her books.
My Favorite Parings (in order):
I have written a pair of Gladiator fics, as that is one of my favorite movies of all time (I also have a unnecessary obsession with Joaquin Phoenix), but I rarely read them, but maybe someday I'll take the time to look at some.
I'm in the process of writing a Breakfast Club fic, but not quite done. That movie is truly boss and a great piece of art showing some true teen life, I suppose. Relatable, deep, and rather funny. I've read a couple, and some of them are pretty great.
I tend to read older stories because they are already done, and I absolutely hate waiting for people to update. (cough KRISTEN cough). I found many of my favorites in older pages, and I do have a big list of favorites. Reading fan fiction is something I enjoy to do often. Fan fiction takes my favorite characters from all over, and combines them into one of my other favorite things to do: read. It's like perfect.
I also like to read other books. As I said before, Without You is one of the most amazing books and definitely my favorite. Other than Anthony Rapp, I also love to read Jodi Picoult (Change of Heart is my second favorite book of all time: it's amazing), Ellen Hopkins (Crank, Burned, Impulse, etc.), Walter Dean Meyers (Monster, Shooter, etc.), Stephanie Meyer (Obviously Twilight; waiting on reading The Host), Lee Thomas (Not known much, but the book Turning White: A Memoir of Change, is very very very inspirational), Dan Brown (Angels & Demons, The DaVinci Code, etc.), and many more. Those are just my favorites.
I hope you take the time to read my fics and I give you your props for reading all this, ha. Thank you for all the reviews and support. Those two things make me very happy, and that's something I really need right now. Thanks again.
I am the girl kicked out of her home because I confided in my mother that I am a lesbian. I am the boy who never finished high school, because I got called a fag everyday. I am the prostitute working the streets because nobody will hire a transsexual woman. I am the sister who holds her gay brother tight through the painful, tear-filled nights. We are the parents who buried our daughter long before her time. I am the man who died alone in the hospital because they would not let my partner of twenty-seven years into the room. I am the foster child who wakes up with nightmares of being taken away from the two fathers who are the only loving family I have ever had; I wish they could adopt me. I am one of the lucky ones, I guess. I survived the attack that left me in a coma for three weeks, and in another year I will probably be able to walk again. I am not one of the lucky ones; I killed myself just weeks before graduating high school. It was simply too much to bear. We are the couple who had the Realtor hang up on us when she found out we wanted to rent a one-bedroom for two men. I am the person who never knows which bathroom I should use if I want to avoid getting the management called on me. I am the mother who is not allowed to even visit the children I bore, nursed, and raised. The court says I am an unfit mother because I now live with another woman. I am the domestic-violence survivor who found the support system grow suddenly cold and distant when they found out my abusive partner is also a woman. I am the domestic-violence survivor who has no support system to turn to because I am male. I am the father who has never hugged his son because I grew up afraid to show affection to other men. I am the home-economics teacher who always wanted to teach gym until someone told me that only lesbians do that. I am the man who died when the paramedics stopped treating me as soon as they realized I was transsexual. I am the person who feels guilty because I think I could be a much better person if I did not have to always deal with society hating me. I am the man who stopped attending church, not because I don't believe, but because they closed their doors to my kind. I am the person who has to hide what this world needs most, love. I am the person who is afraid of telling his loving Christian parents he loves another male. I am the person ashamed to tell my own friends I’m a lesbian, because they constantly make fun of them. I am the boy tied to a fence, beaten to a bloody pulp and left to die because two straight men wanted to teach me a lesson
