The name's Cass. Hot mess, life's a mystery, live outside your comfort zone.
A note about Say Something: This story is trauma-informed and so it will remain. It may be triggering for some, incredibly difficult to read, and is very much no-holds-barred. It is at turns radiant and wonderful, and then it is hard, and sad, and brutal, and also deeply personal, so for that discomfort I am sorry but also not sorry about the honesty. The path makes way for an ending that I hope most of us can recognize and acknowledge as true-to-life and better than fiction. After all, isn't that what we're all striving toward, in the end?
If you are unwilling to leave a public review, but would nevertheless like to discuss the story with me, my inbox is open and if we are friends on social media, you may contact me there, as well. For those who might wonder, "Is the journey worth the read?" -- I truly believe it is, and I can promise that all will be well, because to me, the people about whom I write are characters that I have always believed would be willing to do the work. In their humanity, they make mistakes along the way, but it leads to something richer and more wonderful than anyone might dare imagine. Because that's what true strength, courage, and vulnerability does: they secure the ropes and steady the ship. If both sides will put in the effort, nothing is insurmountable.
I used to hate to write, but I tried my hand at fanfiction at the age of thirteen, and from there, the rest is history. Thusly, an acquired FAQ that has come to me repeatedly after fifteen years as a fanfic writer:
Q: Would you please write about [x situation] in a Sound of Music fic?
Q: Will you write smut/premarital love scenes/the hot stuff in the context of my choosing?
Q: Will you read and review my story?
Q: Will you be my beta reader?
Q: How do you write a story the way you wrote "If I Lose Myself"?
Q: Are you working on anything else?
