Author has written 15 stories for High School Musical, Marching Band, Harry Potter, and New Girl.

Joy - 20-something student stuck with a few more years of grad school and an obvious disregard for the amount of time she actually has in the day.
Writing comes and goes as the semesters get stressful, but I usually like to write out most of my stories before I publish them. Just makes it easier on those that like regular updates :)

My Stories

I've had an on-again, off-again relationship with this website for awhile now, as you can probably see by the dates on these stories.

I nearly made a new account for things like HP and New Girl, but I'm very much about respecting growth as a writer. Be warned: although (occasionally) very articulate, I was fifteen at the VERY LATEST when I wrote all that HSM fluff. My picks would be "There's This Girl" and "Just a Click Away," if you're brave and want a longer story. The others are up to read, too, but more to remind me of exactly where I started.
