Author has written 3 stories for Twilight.

I've been an avid (but closeted) FanFiction reader for over a year now. I should probably specify and say that I am a Twilight FanFiction reader. I've had the Kings album on repeat (along with the new Third Eye Blind, Jeff Buckley, and Earth Wind & Fire), since it came out and this story idea for Use Somebody just sort of sprang from that.

I'm of legal age without any clue of how to act and behave as such. I'm obsessed with Calvin and Hobbes and sometimes wish I could be a six year old boy with unparalleled vocabulary and daydreams. Plus I kind of want a stuffed tiger as my best friend.


Kings of Leon, Use Somebody:

I've been roaming around, I was looking down at all I see
Painted faces fill the places I can't reach
You know that I could use somebody

Someone like you and all you know and how you speak
Countless lovers under cover of the street
You know that I could use somebody
Someone like you

Off in the night while you live it up I'm off to sleep
Waging wars to shake the poet and the beat
I hope it's gonna make you notice

Someone like me, someone like me
Someone like me, somebody

I'm ready now, I'm ready now

...This story will be on (and has been) on hiatus until further notice...


Choppy Water: Once upon a time, before my body revolted against me, I was a Varsity rower. I sat 7-seat, only rowed starboard, loved my coxswain (but not in a sexual way) and I miss it every single day. As far as I'm concerned, this one-shot will remain a one-shot, but thank you for the interest and kind comments.
