COLLABS:

My BFF, my other half, my partner in crime everything, AngelGoddess1981 and I have written a few fun things together and hopefully will again! Check us out as The Angel and The Muse.

I did some dirty talking with the incredibly awesome herinfiniteeyes, writing together as Dirty Words.


ON PULLED FICS: The only stories I have pulled are a few multi-chapter fics that I started ages ago and do not think I will ever finish. I will never pull-to-publish any of my fanfiction, simply because I wrote it as fanfiction, and I cannot personally see it any other way. If I do ever publish any fiction or other written work, it will be original to both my mind and the world. If you're looking for a story of mine that you don't see here, it may be on my website (see above) or it may be one of the few that I did pull, for the aforementioned reason. (FTR, I don't have any personal or moral issues with FF authors who do P2P, it's just not something I will ever do.)


ORIGINAL WORKS: Find me on FictionPress as maniacalmuse, or check out my website (see above.)


FOR THE RECORD: Real, consensual, responsibly executed BDSM (Bondage, Dominance/Submission, Sadomasochism) is NOT abuse, rape, or slavery, no matter how intense the level of role play. There is a lot of confusion out there regarding just what true BDSM is and what it means, but the truth is there is no fine line between BDSM and the above mentioned atrocities; the differences are black and white. The key word in any BDSM relationship is consensual – as in both parties soberly agreeing to participate and equally benefiting from the situation. BDSM role play should always, ALWAYS be safe, sane, and consensual. A true BDSM relationship cannot exist without all of these actualities being met, and anything less than pure consent in sexual and/or domestic situations is and always will be abuse in any of its forms. The end. Period. No exceptions. Ever. *mic drop*

It was hard enough being Edward Cullen, Forks High's own social pariah, without his best friend dragging him to some weird costume party he didn't want to go to. What strange twist of magic could make it all worthwhile?
