Author has written 18 stories for Newsies, and Harry Potter.

"A Wonderful Caricature of Intimacy" is DONE. However, it has a sequel. These frakking characters won't cooperate with me, so I had to keep going. The sequel, "Uproot Every Lie" is set three years after the strike, making them all twenty or twenty-one, closer to my own age. :)

I'm just a 22 year-old girl, real name Chelsea, that's been happily in love with Newsies since spring of 7th grade (which was 2002, by the way). I am currently living Grand Rapids, MI with my son, who was born on March 1, 2009, and whose name is Conlon Zachary.Yes, I'm serious, that is really his name, which means I officially WIN in the imaginary contest of long-term dedication to "Newsies." I'm a somewhat-recently single mom, and kind of loving it. ;)

Most of my stories center around Spot Conlon because he is the most interesting to write about, in my opinion, and I obviously have a lot of love for him. However, if I had to to choose JUST ONE newsy to do the dirty with, it'd be Skittery, hands-down.

I don't know if this is even an issue anymore, but when I was around here before, there was a lot of arguing about Jake. I am, and always have been, PRO-Jake!

I have one Harry Potter fic, which I love, and many, many old "Newsies" fics that were written when I was in middle school and early high school. Read and enjoy--but be gentle! I was young! However, "I Lied" is, in my opinion, my all-time best one-shot to date.

"I'm the narrator, and this is just the prologue. Swear to shake it up if you swear to listen. We're still so young--desperate for attention. I aim to be your eyes."

-Panic! At the Disco

If you're curious as to where exactly I got my pen name, Glimmer Conlon O'Leary, go here and read both versions of "Through The Hourglass." That character, Glimmer, is based on ME. And Raeghann is awesome. The lovely Raeghann has been MIA almost as long as I have, and since she recently had TWINS, I doubt she'll be back...but everything she wrote is worth a read!

I'm pretty sure there's a link to my FB somewhere on here. Feel free to message or friend me; just tell me who you are first, 'cause creepers get denied. :)

For "Never Too Late," these are our men. Bourbon, who is male model Marios Lekkas. There are MANY pictures of him out there, but this is the one that made my heart literally skip a beat. He IS the Bourbon in my head. Also, for similar pictures to make your heart stop: here, here, here, and here. Spot/Seth is now played by Caleb Lane, who is delicious. Yes, I realize Gabe Damon exists, but adult Gabe Damon, as much as I love him, does not mesh with my vision of grown-up Spot. Caleb Lane came late to the game, and was found by one of my friends for an RP we do, and he has become Seth. He just is. Get used to it. And in case you're curious: Water

For more character pics: Lydia (Yes, that's me. I was 14 when I started this story, (or, well, what would eventually become this story. It's been being written a long time.) and basically described myself. Now, it's just easier. Yes, it's cocky and arrogant, and no, I don't care.) Panic/Kassidy (that is my cousin, who IS Panic) Sprint/Marie, Mugger, Angel, Lady.
