Author has written 15 stories for CSI: Miami, CSI, NCIS, Criminal Minds, Outsiders, and Big Time Rush.
The name's Melody. Call me this, or Mel, or Still Lovely.
I'm 22, my birthday is in December and I live in Southern California.
I'm not one of those bleach-blonde bimbos who seem to thrive here. I'm just plain old me. Pale, freckled and not quite thin enough.
I love reading, writing, fanfiction and all things related.
I successfully passed and graduated from high school in 2009.
I adore Big Time Rush, teal nail polish, comfy sweatshirts, braided hair, friendship bracelets, toe rings, sandals, skirts, The Outsiders, music, rain, cloudy days, random hugs, kisses to the forehead, coffee, and friends.
I can't live without Big Time Rush, my iPod, my worn and tattered copy of The Outsiders, my friends, and my family.
Love. Laughter. Hugs. Kisses. Smiles. That's all that really matters.
I live in front of my TV and computer. Okay, so maybe not, but I spend a significant amount of time there. My dad is completely convinced that I'm going to go blind from overexposure.
I have an unhealthy addiction to Nickelodeon shows, especially Big Time Rush, and cop dramas, mainly Criminal Minds and the CSI's.
I love almost all the authors on here, but there are a few I'm infatuated with: Miss Fenway, KatieRazzle, 'quote' intangible, TangiblyYours, xChemicalxFallxPanicx, Falling To Fly, DarkElements10, Holly's Follies, ShatteredDiamonds, SpiderMonkey241, OneManWritingGames, ToXiCiTy13, Upstairs.Brain, and MidnightStar.ShiningMoon.
Okay, so it's more than a few. But whatever, they are amazing. Check out their stuff. You'll regret it if you don't.

I don't want a knight in shining armor, I want a greaser with converse 'n 501 levi's!
Falling, falling into the arms of a greaser- a hood.
You know you're a writer if...
You talk to yourself about talking to yourself.
When you talk to yourself, you often talk to yourself while talking to somebody else.
You'll check your email every day for a week, then disappear off the Earth.
Your emails tend to be incredibly long and very random.
When replying to an email, you never actually address the point.
You never have to get up to find pencils or paper in your room.
The letters on your keyboard are wearing off.
You constantly talk about yourself in third person, whether past or present.
You start thinking about making lists like this and giggle for no "apparent" reason.
People stopped looking at you funny for no reason a loooooooooooooong time ago.
You describe everyday situations in your head as if they were in a book.
You laugh at completely random/inappropriate times just because of something you read the day before.
When you get an idea for a story, you become more excited than a kid on Christmas morning.
(This made me laugh so hard... So true. XD)
HOW YOU KNOW IF YOU'RE A TRUE OUTSIDERS FAN...
>You laugh every time you drink a soft drink for reasons unknown to people around you.
>You name your horse (Or any other pet) Ponyboy.
>You've looked up Robert Frost poems before, just to read Nothing Gold Can Stay from a different source.
>You've read Gone With the Wind, even though it's more than a thousand pages long, for no other reason except because it was mentioned in The Outsiders.
>If you HAVE read Gone With the Wind, you get randomly excited and squeal at the page where it quotes exactly, "riding into sure death because they were gallant".
>You've started wearing black leather jackets, old jeans, and white t-shirts a lot more than you usually do.

>You've started caring about your hair a lot more than you did before.

>You've read the book so many times you could quote entire pages from it.
>You love your English teacher for getting you to read it.
>You announce to your stunned parents that your new favourite cartoon character is Mickey Mouse.
>You want to hit people when your teacher's showing the Outsiders movie, and they don't pay attention to it/laugh at it.
>You rush up to every random person reading the book, squealing and babbling about how amazing the book is, and how much they're gonna love it so much. You say these thing to COMPLETE STRANGERS too.
>You suddenly wish you had a southern accent, and you love people who actally do.

I copied this from EternalBookWorm823's profile merely because it made me laugh so hard, I fell of my bed!!
ACTUAL PRODUCT LABELS THAT SCARE ME:
On a Sears hairdryer: Do not use while sleeping. ( that's the only time I have to work on my hair).
On a bag of Fritos! ..You could be a winner! No purchase necessary. Details inside. (the shoplifter special)?
On a bar of Dial soap: "Directions: Use like regular soap." (and that would be how?...)

On packaging for a Rowenta iron: "Do not iron clothes on body." (but wouldn't this save me more time?)
On Boot's Children Cough Medicine: "Do not drive a car or operate machinery after taking this medication." (We could do a lot to reduce the rate of construction accidents if we could just get those 5-year-olds with head-colds off those forklifts.)
On Nytol Sleep Aid: "Warning: May cause drowsiness." (and... I'm taking this because?...)
On most brands of Christmas lights: "For indoor or outdoor use only." (as opposed to...what?)
On a Japanese food processor: "Not to be used for the other use." (now, somebody out there, help me on this. I'm a bit curious. And scared. O.O)

On an American Airlines packet of nuts: "Instructions: Open packet, eat nuts." (Step 3: maybe, uh...fly Delta?)
On a child's superman costume: "Wearing of this garment does not enable you to fly." (I don't blame the company. I blame the parents for this one.)
On a Swedish chainsaw: "Do not attempt to stop chain with your hands." (...was there a lot of this happening somewhere?)
(I'm laughing so hard I'm making the computer shake right now... Literally!)
