Author has written 24 stories for Bridge to Terabithia, and iCarly.

"Love is the burning point of life, and since all life in sorrowful, so is love.

The stronger the love, the more the pain...love itself is a pain, you might say - the pain of being truly alive."

- Joseph Campbell

"...because when you read a book as a child, it becomes part of your identity in a way that no other reading in your whole life does."

- "You've Got Mail"

"My life is not an apology, but a life. It is for itself and not a spectacle...

I wish it to be sound and sweet...my life should be unique; it should be an alms, a conquest, a battle, a medicine."

- Ralph Waldo Emerson


I am an eighteen year old college student, majoring in English with a minor in Religious Studies, although it's discussing what makes us human that really interests me. They don't

have a major for that, so that's what I use writing for.

I adore living in my corner of the world, but I look forward to exploring many more over my lifetime. I hope to move to England, summer in Venice, become fluent in French (two

years in high school - that's something), drive Mini Coopers, and make someone think about life a little differently. I want to collect old books and listen to the Beatles, learn to cook

and dance in the kitchen. I'll talk to anyone for hours on the subject of music, spirituality and theology. I have a love-hate relationship with The Walking Dead and religiously watch

every movie that AnnaSophia Robb and Josh Hutcherson have ever made. Jane Austen is a literary talent unparalleled by anyone, in my opinion, as is Lewis Carroll. Reading The

Perks of Being a Wallflower

changed my life. Bridge to Terabithia is largely responsible for the person I am today. As many of you know by now, Emily is not my name. If you don't

know it, you'll probably learn it soon enough.

I love:

tea, candles, rainy days, records, Alain DeBotton, Game of Thrones, John Green, owls, Harry Potter, fountain pens, coffee, Doctor Who, an excuse to wear red lipstick, wingback chairs, Teen Wolf, Hobbit holes, Audrey Hepburn, DaVinci's Demons, Narnia, The Carrie Diaries, Tumblr, horses, 8tracks dot com and the idea of being a cat lady (I'm the polar opposite, I'm afraid).

I am Emily_Faye on A03 & lostinwonderlandxx on Tumblr.
