Hey all you people I don't know!
I am "someone". Let's just say my name is Maria Hernandez, ok? ; )
I (Maria) am a new writer, so if my stuff totally sucks, PLEASE tell me how I can fix it or anything like that. If it so bad you couldn't bear to read any more than the first sentence, then please let me know so I take it off right away. I am not trying to cause my readers pain. (and sorry if it turns out that way)

There are a ton more for all of those, and I'l add more whenever.
Super-D-Duper Factoids of Amusement: I'm in eighth grade at an amazing school in Northern VA. It's fantastically wonderful. (Go Panthers!) Um...I live with my Mom and sister, Meg, who's seventeen and college-bound, visiting Dad on every other weekend. That's probably the reason why I haven't updated, if anything - because I save my stuff at Mom's house. Sorry about that. No pets...except a beta fish when I was in fifth grade...Squishy Chubboggis, may you rest in peace.
I take first year French (Je m'appelle Coline. Et toi? Tu t'appelle comment? Bonjour_!) and that's pretty much all I know at this point. I sometimes write things in French on my fics just to prove that eighth period isn't a complete waste of time. Which it totally is, of course. Along with second period (Algebra), fourth (Phys Ed), and the first half of sixth (Activity - whoops, I mean 'Learning Seminar'. My bad. -rolls eyes-)
Just so you know: I don't have a lot of free time, so if I don't update for a week or so, don't kill me. I'll try to update as soon as I can, but I'm not making any promises...
My story(s) are listed, so I am not going to waste time typing them up. However, if you don't review, I probably won't update for a while. :( No motivation is a very sad thing. -cries-
Sorry I used so many perenthesis. I go ( ) crazy sometimes. Okay, a lot...
I just wanted to say thank you to my fantastical reviewers for The End. It is...amazing that people actually read my stuff. And I promise that I'll update as fast as I can, even with school. Granted, that doesn't really mean a lot, considering I have about a bajillion hours of homework each night...rrrr...but yeah. I'll try.
