Hello! I'm Ruth, 19, supermarket worker, youth worker, aspiring novelist, diehard Anna/Bates shipper. Nice to meet you.

I'm delighted to announce that vangeve has translated my fanfiction, You'll Never Be Alone, into Chinese! If this will be easier for you to read, you can find it listed as Chapter 2.

If you'd like to translate any of my fiction, or if you come across any translations I might be unaware of, please let me know! I'm honoured that people are interested to do this, but I would like to know that it's there.
