farkle. As in "Sparkle Farkle," not the dice game.

My love and thanks to Irritable Grizzzly, beta, cheerleader, and she who keeps me from completely abandoning the ficworld. http://www.fanfiction.net/u/1830785/ Bow to her. You're not worthy.

Don't Stand So Close To Me is on hiatus. I appreciate all the continued support for my first (and flawed) fic.

Art School Confidential is a fictionalization of my experiences in art school and the stories of my friends. I find art school is vastly misunderstood and romanticized, and artists are generally portrayed in fiction as 2-d stereotypes and caricatures. I'm having more fun writing about art school than I did going through it.

UPDATE 12/12: My life has been rather topsy-turvy for the past 2 years. My deepest apologies for seemingly dropping off the map, and going into my hermit-hole. I have pinkie-promised IG that I will resume writing ASC in January 2013, and I expect that it (and the outtake I owe the team farkle from Alex's lemonade Stand auction) will be completed by Easter 2013. That, at least, is my goal.

I thank my readers for every review, but though I once tried to answer every one, I no longer find myself able to do so. You can PM me if you have specific questions or comments. I welcome the input.
