Okay this is it. I'm so sorry for the long huge delay. But life gets it's way and lack of inspiration is part of it.I just finished From the Pain. It has the three intended chapters. So, it's short and I hope you enjoy it.
I still have another story to finish, it's a bit bittersweet, feels like closing a chapter for me. I don't plan to take down the stories. I can see how much I've had change through them. Yes, English still my second language, that's remind me: sorry for the mistakes, inconsistencies, horrors, grammar, etc etc. Still learning and proud to say it.
Since I don't see too much traffic on Vampire Diaries book section, sadly I don't hope or wait for a lot of reviews. I missed reading stories here about my OTP. I'm a sucker for shipping those who are usually not the main couple. Maybe because I can see something hinted between two characters and feeds my imagination. Maybe it's that why I fell in love with it, Bonnie and Damon let my imagination fly.
I read the original books written by L.J. Smith, I didn't read the ghost writer books, maybe the first one that is a mixed between L.J. Smith words and the ghost writer and it was painful. It was not the same. I watched the show change so much of the original story that for me to somewhat enjoy it I had to imagine it was the "official" fan fiction story of the world and characters created by L.J. Smith. It was the only way for me to appreciate the work done on the show. Still it is fiction just simple as that, just entertainment.
After all this... I'm still grateful for the journey. I cross my fingers and wish with all my heart to be able to finish Diaries of a Lost Soul. My heart is broken with this story I lost so much of it when my previous laptop went down and crashed.
Just to be clear I read a lot not only fanfiction. I read in English and Spanish and enjoy imagining the characters and worlds despicted by the authors. Than being said, I recognized I had only written for one fandom. I'm not ashamed for that, I quite enjoyed it. ;) I already explained why, maybe in the future I'll be brave enough and have the courage to write about something else. Who knows. We have to live today, not yesterday or tomorrow. So I can fairly say... I don't know.
If you still reading thank you. Enjoy your fandom, ship whatever you want to ship, but please remember is fiction, is ENTERTAINMENT. Be kind to each other, respect each other.
"The beauty of the human race is the paradoxical concept of being the same species and yet intrinsic different individuals. What a beauty we are!" - Yep... by me!
Hi! One of my stories had been translated to Spanish. Lil'Lamber did an outstanding job tranlating it. Here is the link to the Spanish version of When Eternity Finds You...
Of course she asked me if she could translate my story and I said yes. I don't regret it at all. :)
I wrote a little one-shot called Love Through Time and Words. It is an original one-shot and I post it at my account on Fictionpress. It will be lovely if you go there read it and tell me what you think about it.
I posted another one-shot called When Life Play With Us. It my second attempt for something original and non-fanfiction. Just click the link to my profile on Fictionpress. I hope you will like it.

I really like this poem, well I had to admit that the first time I heard it was at the movie Invictus with Matt Damon and Morgan Freeman. I don't intend to go against the law if this poem have any copyrights, my intention is to let people now what Mr. Henley wrote. I do not own the poem, I don't own the movie Invictus, I don't own Morgan Freeman and very sadly I don't own Matt Damon. I don't receive any gains or profits for posting this. Just enjoy it!!!!
by: William Ernest Henley (1849–1903)
Out of the night that covers me,
In the fell clutch of circumstance
Beyond this place of wrath and tears
It matters not how strait the gate,
Another piece of poetry... see the video here
Añoranza is an example of the romantic musical expression of Puerto Rican music. This type of music is called Danzas Puertorriqueñas. This romantic expression is considered one of the most sophisticated Puerto Rican forms of music that can be extremely varied. One good example of the Danzas variety is the National Anthem of Puerto Rico. Its music follows the Danza musical patterns.
The origins of this musical expression are a bit unclear. The experts attribute its origins to the nineteenth century around 1840. Music is a live and artistic expression that evolves continually. Some experts relate some traits of the Danza Puertorriqueña to the Spanish Danzón and the Habanera Music from Cuba.
Once this beautiful music was considered naughty because the couples danced too near of each other and not according to the propriety standards of that time. According to this at some point of the nineteenth century the Danza was outlawed.
Luckily the people continued dancing it and the musicians continued composing it. There are two composers that elevated the Danzas to the next artistic level because of their richness of their compositions. They are: Manuel Gregorio Tavarez and Juan Morel Campos.
Today we still have musicians that are composing a modern interpretation of the Danzas, like Rafi Escudero. Añoranza is the perfect example of the richness and exquisite music of the Danzas Puertorriqueñas.
If you want to know more there are several sites on the net with more information about the Danzas Puertorriqueñas. Just write in Google: Danzas Puertorriqueñas and you'll find more videos, music sheets, lyrics and history.
I'll post the lyrics in English and Spanish. I hope you'll enjoy my sister performance, let me know what do you think.
Yo quiero ser pan si tienes hambre,
Yo quiero ser agua en la sequía
Yo quiero, si eres nido ser el ave
Quiero ser la razón de que camines
I want to be bread if you are hungry,
I want to be water in the drought
If you are nest, I want to be the bird
I want to be the reason that you walk
