Author has written 9 stories for Angel, Buffy: The Vampire Slayer, and Twilight.

ATTENTION: I'm looking for a prereader or two... If you are interested, PLEASE message me... It's a new story I'm working on and, though I'm enjoying writing it... Some guidance and feedback before posting would be GREATLY appreciated.

Wow I can't believe anyone still checks up on my profile! I know it seems like I've fallen off the face of the earth and, in many ways, maybe I have. Life has thrown me some curveballs this past year... And this is me, trying to keep swimming when I feel like I'm drowning. Either way, know that I'm not giving up on anything and I'm pushing through and doing my best to continue to write.

With that said, let's update a few things shall we?

I'm a "recent" college graduate and professional procrastinator. And, if I'm being honest, it's one of the things that got me into writing fanfiction (because I'd much rather explore the fictional world than the world of politics that I majored in). That being said, I am a US politics major and English Literature major (I probably should have stuck with English, studying politics has made me rather cynical). Much to my friend's (who live there) disappointments, London did not work out for me and I did not have the opportunity to move back. Though I am deeply wounded by this because I love that city more than any other place in the world (even San Francisco), I know that it happened that way for a reason and that I will find my way back when the timing is right. Wow, look at the cynical me being all positive!

So what am I doing now? I'm working a job that I hate (in FINANCE of all things... Really? Me? Number crunching? My Algebra teachers are probably filling buckets with the tears of their laughter at the thought of me crunching numbers)... All the while looking for a job at a law firm while I study for the LSAT so I can eventually take (and conquer) that beast and eventually apply (and get into) Law School somewhere in LA or San Francisco with a decent program in Entertainment Law. I'm also taking in as many San Jose Sharks games as I possibly can (GO SHARKS!) and soon taking in as many Giants games as I possible can (GO GIANTS! - oh hell, what I really mean is, Brian Wilson, take your shirt off! - tongue in check comment there guys, I do also REALLY love baseball and Brian Wilson).

Things I like to do, when I'm not studying or writing or going mental at sporting events... Well, that would be listening to music/discovering new artists, traveling, reading, watching movies, hanging out with friends (especially the ones I don't see often enough anymore as we go to colleges all over the states... and EVEN more those friends from Europe/Australia), driving with the windows down and the music blaring, horseback riding, singing (horribly off key)... I don't know. Lots of things.

You can find me on Twitter at brighteyes87

Feel free to kick my ass into writing there... I'm always checking that thing...
