twitter: raile12
(I'm easily more reachable via twitter and I'm always up for a chat)

Basically, I write what I want and I have fun doing it. It does not necessarily mean I like the things I write but that could simply be due to the fact that I wrote them. I am quite adept at self-loathing. I am fluent in crazy. I like a lot of things and only truly love a select number of living creatures on earth. I laugh easily and I laugh at different things. There is a mischievous pain in the ass 12-year-old boy inside me that loves stupid things, stupid jokes and South Park. Truth. I love country music and I love Coke the drink, not the illegal substance. I love Star Wars and cats and dogs. I like sleeping but I also like being awake and never have enough time for anything. I am the youngest child and yes, that means what it means. I have brown eyes.


Status Updates:

December 2013 Currently working on relief efforts for the victims of typhoon Haiyan that devastated areas in the Philippines.


May 2013 DELETED the message here as I'm assuming those who need to see it already have. Moving on and taking back the space. If you're a little late to the party, there was a scuffle with a flamer but that's been dealt with. Adios, whoever that was.


March 2013 Starting now, this account will be my main archive for my stories. Will be moving them all here, including the ones I have at AO3 (Archive of Our Own) so prepare for some alerts. Old works, mostly from between 2011-2012 but I'm more comfortable in this site so I hope nobody minds getting alerts for old stories.


Forum pimping:

The Christine Baranski Community

Big boss is Red (marysunshine81) and she is awesome.

Garden-variety pimping:

Bye11 - since I can't seem to link here on my iPad, just check out my favorite authors list for a link to her profile. I'm a former Diane-Lockhart-straighty but thanks to her I now dabble in her world where she has other pairings and aspirations way beyond my comfort zone. She is brilliant with a capital B and if wishes could ever come true, I'd wish I could be even a fourth as good as she is.

Also, she's largely at fault in terms of why I sometimes write stories that aren't centered on Diane Lockhart. Aim your pitchforks at her, but I warn you...she bites.

Okay, that was a joke. The pitchforks, I mean.


Note:

Also, the PM option has been activated so feel free to use that. I love hearing from readers and I am open to suggestions and constructive criticism but I won't stand childish flaming, alright? I went through that and while it wasn't damaging and was more amusing, I'd rather you do it personally via PM, that way we have more chances of talking things out like adults. If you prefer flaming via reviews, well, that's your freedom but don't expect me to give you the time of day as I have more important things that require my attention.
