Author has written 17 stories for Winx Club, Harry Potter, Twilight, Chronicles of Narnia, Nancy Drew series, and Les Misérables.
So it's been a long time since I was on this site. I've been getting back into it, reading some new categories and discovering great new writers. I've spent a lot of my time writing for another site and getting schoolwork done, but now I'm home and searching for either a job or a PhD program. Trying to open as many doors as I possibly can. But I'm also trying to get my creative juices flowing again, so here I am, continuing my "Diary of a Missing Girl" story and writing some new things. I've got some new songfics planned (I still wish there was a General Music category on here for songfics - that would be wonderful!) that will mostly be to Celtic Woman and Celtic Thunder songs. I can't wait to see what you all think of them! Every time I use one, a link will be posted here, so keep an eye out!

I also happen to play the Nancy Drew Adventure Series. I have played every single game in the series multiple times, with the exception of the remastered version of Secrets Can Kill, and am starting to think of stories to go along with some of the games. My list of top ten favorites in the series, in chronological order, are:
1. Treasure in the Royal Tower
2. The Final Scene
3. Secret of the Scarlet Hand
4. The Haunted Carousel
5. The Secret of Shadow Ranch
6. The Curse of Blackmoor Manor
7. Danger by Design
8. The Phantom of Venice
9. The Captive Curse
10. The Silent Spy
The universe is made of stories, not atoms.
Even when they have nothing, the Irish emit a kind of happiness, a joy.
All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.
Art, as far as it is able, follows nature, as a pupil imitates his master; thus your art may be, as it were, God's grandchild.
Some people regard discipline as a chore. For me, it is a kind of order that sets me free to fly.
If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant; if we did not sometimes taste adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome.
It is a sad fate for a man to die to well known to everyone else and still unknown to himself.
Genius is one percent inspiration, ninety-nine percent perspiration.
Often times, the shadows serve not only to conceal those who wish to do evil, but also to protect those who seek to do good.
--Alexander Tseitsev, "Mystery Woman: In the Shadows"
Hermione: "You'll be okay Harry. You're a great wizard, you really are."
Harry: "I'm not as good as you."
Hermione: "Me, books and cleverness. There are more important things. Friendship and bravery."
--Harry Potter and Hermione Granger, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone (movie)
Gimli: "What's happening out there?"
Legolas: "Shall I describe it to you? Or would you like me to find you a box?"
--Gimli and Legolas, Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (movie)
How many times must a man look up before he can see the sky?
How many ears must one many have before he can hear people cry?
How many deaths will it take 'til he knows that too many people have died?
The answer, my friend, is blowing in the wind.
The answer is blowing in the wind.
--"Blowing in the wind" by Peter, Paul and Mary
Let me tell you that I love you,
That I think about you all the time
Caledonia, you're calling me,
Now I'm going home.
But if I should become a stranger,
Know that it would make me more than sad.
Caledonia's been everything I've ever had.
--"Caledonia" by Celtic Woman
I am the dawn and the new day begun.
I bring you the morning, I bring you the sun.
I hold back the night and I open the skies.
I give light to the world, I give sight to your eyes.
From the first of all time, 'til time is undone,
Forever and ever and ever and ever,
And I am the dawn and the sky and the sun,
I am one with the One and I am the dawn.
--"The Sky and the Dawn and the Sun" by Celtic Woman
I pray you'll be our eyes,
And watch us where we go,
And help us to be wise,
In times when we don't know.
Let this be our prayer,
As we go our way.
Lead us to a place,
Guide us with your grace,
To a place where we'll be safe.
--"The Prayer" by Celtic Woman
"Sing out! Sing out!
Sing to the world.
Sing out, you will be heard!
Sing the message of the world.
Sing a new song to the world!
Sing out! Sing to the world!
--"Sing Out!" by Celtic Woman
Open your heart, I am calling you.
Right from the very start, your wounded heart was calling too.
Open your arms, you will find the answer when you answer to the call.
--"The Call" by Celtic Woman
We're all apart of one world.
We all can share the same dream.
And if you just reach out to me,
Then you will find, deep down inside,
I'm just like you.
--"One World" by Celtic Woman
Someday, life will be fairer,
Need will be rarer,
And greed will not pay.
Godspeed, this bright millenium,
Let it come
If we wish upon the moon.
One day, someday soon
--"Someday" by Celtic Woman
O, America, I hear you,
From your prairies to the sea.
From your mountains grand and all through this land,
You are beautiful to me.
--"O, America" by Celtic Woman
I never made promises lightly,
And there have been some that I've broken
But I swear in the days still left
We'll walk in the fields of gold
We'll walk in the fields of gold
--"Fields of Gold" by Celtic Woman
There can be miracles when you believe,
Though hope is frail, it's hard to kill.
Who knows what miracles you can achieve when you believe,
Somehow you will, you will when you believe.
--"When You Believe" by Celtic Woman
Isle of hope, isle of tears,
Isle of freedom, isle of fears,
But it's not the isle you left behind.
That isle of hunger, isle of pain
Isle you'll never see again,
But the isle of home is always on your mind.
--"Isle of Hope, Isle of Tears" by Celtic Woman
A ship there is and she sails the sea,
She's loaded deep, as deep can be.
But not so deep as the love I'm in,
I know not if I sink or swim.
--"The Water is Wide" by Hayley Westenra
A thiarna dean trocaire (Irish for Lord have mercy)
A Chriost dean trocaire (Irish for Christ have mercy)
A thiarna dean trocaire
A Chriost dean trocaire
--"Heartland" by Celtic Thunder
Like a bird without wings
That longs to be flying,
Like a motherless child
Left lonely and crying,
Like a song without words,
Like a world without music,
I wouldn't know what to do
I'd be lost without you
Watching over me.
--"A Bird without Wings" by Celtic Thunder
God only knows what tomorrow brings.
You're in my heart, so my spirit sings.
And I'll be strong just as long as you,
Remember me, recuerdame, mi amor.
--"Remember Me, Recuerdame" by Celtic Thunder
Steal away, let's steal away,
No reason left to stay
For me and you, let's start anew
And darlin' steal away.
--"Steal Away" by Celtic Thunder
Together standing tall!
Shoulder to shoulder,
We'll answer Ireland's Call!
--"Ireland's Call" by Celtic Thunder
But since it fell into my lot,
That I should rise and you should not,
I'll gently rise and softly call,
Goodnight and joy be to you all.
So fell to me the parting glass,
And drink a health whate'er befalls.
And gently rise and softly call,
Goodnight and joy be to you all.
--"The Parting Glass" by The High Kings
