Edward Anthony Cullen...my first love. I started the series in 8th grade and here I am, a college student, and still hopelessly head over heals for him. He was like my gateway drug. Soon I began falling for more and more fictional characters. William "Bill" Compton, "good" Eric Northman, Peeta Mellark, Prince Alagan Dhiren Rajaram...it's an unhealthy way to live.
I happened to stumble upon the wonderful world of fanfiction.net on a dull afternoon sometime in 2008. I remember google searching aimlessly a few months prior, seeking some form of Twilight entertainment when I came across a livejournal of Twilight fanfiction. My curiosity got the best of me and I starting googling to figure out what exactly this "fanfiction" was. Shortly after clicking the link which brought me here, I was hooked.
A few months later, it become my escape from the real world and the stresses that world held and I began playing with the idea of posting my own stories. Not being very comfortable with my writing at the time, I starting with something simple: The Wind Calls My Name. A oneshot; easy enough.
I got bored with the idea of oneshots and foolishly jumped head first into a chapter story which failed miserably. Which is to be expected when you go into a story with not an ounce of knowledge as to where the story is actually headed.
Now I'm just fooling around and trying to take writing a little more seriously.

Some fun facts:
I am, in fact, Team Edward. As original as that may sound...
On my grandmother's side lies the Cullen name. A completely exciting yet pointless fact about yours truly which had me squealing in pure euphoria when I found out. #FunFamilyTreeFactsAreFun
My favorite book in the series is Eclipse. By now it is a little torn up and worn out with numerous dog ear flaps and underlines of my favorite quotes.
I used to be a Lautner fan, but after Eclipse came out, RPattz won my heart.
My best FF friend is Miss Jaz. Or Lion.Lovin.Lamb. I love her to bits.
I'm a band geek, a book worm, and a worry wart. This is my stress reliever.
I can't go one day without listening to my Ipod.
Eventually, I hope to write my own novel.
I love everything and anything Disney.
The Notebook was to first movie to make me cry hysterically.
I love anything that is supernatural in general.

RIP Daddy's Little Cannibal aka Stephanie. She will be missed very much and her work will live on, even though she is no longer with us. She made a name for herself and I just wish the rest of the world had the chance to experience her talents. There is no doubt that I would have enjoyed the amazing novels she would have created.
