Author has written 19 stories for Harry Potter, Hunger Games, Beka Cooper series, Circle of Magic, Ender's Game series, Mysterious Benedict Society series, Unnatural History, NCIS, NCIS: Los Angeles, and Criminal Minds.

Hi, I love reading and writing. (well, duh, why else would I be creating an account)

I love anything by Tamora Pierce, JKR, Brandon Sanderson.

My favorite books (other than those by the above authors) include the Hunger Game trilogy, Artemis Fowl series, the Series of Unfortunate Events, and the Bartimaeus trilogy.

I came up with everything on my profile. Feel free to PM suggestions to add.

Reasons Why Geeks Will Rule The World

1. Try to shove me in a locker . . .
. . . I'll use the internet connection on my iPhone to hack past the school's filters and post a cry for help on Facebook.

2. Try to use me as a football in our tackle football unit . . .
. . . I'll fake one of my asthma attacks, so I'll be licking a Popsicle in the nurse's office while you're sweating your way through push-ups.

3. Try to flick a spitball at me . . .
. . . I'll block it with my AP calculus textbook.

4. Try to steal my lunch money . . .
. . . I'll explain how I have a PIN account set up with the lunch ladies, and I don't need to carry money.

5. Try to make me ashamed of being a geek . . .
. . . I'll yell “I AM A GEEK, AND I AM GOING TO RULE THE WORLD!”

A Guide to OC's

-All characters must have a personality. “Hyper” is not a personality.

-Nor is “random”

-All characters must have reasonable hair and eye colors.

-And by reasonable, I mean within the range of human possibility.

-All characters must have some personality flaw. “Clumsy” is not a personality flaw.

-Nor is “self-sacrificing,” “too loyal,” or “too modest.”

-All characters must have some physical flaw. “Too beautiful” is not a flaw.

-Nor is “too strong.”

And, in a Shocking Twist . . .

. . . a congenital birth defect kicked in, and Bourne died of a heart attack.

. . . The Capulets decided that rather than encase her in a tomb, they would cremate Juliet's body.

. . . Harry Potter discovered that Trelawny was drunk on cooking sherry when she made that prophecy.

. . . the terrorists gave Jack Bauer forty-eight hours to meet their demands, and he died of shock.

. . . the villain set the timer on the doomsday device to go off a :007, thus blowing up Bond while he's still escaping.

World's Worst Last Words

Don't worry, I don't think it's loaded.

I thought you packed the parachutes!

I wonder what this red “self-destruct” button does?

Clip the red wire! No, the blue! Wait—

Pass me a match so I can check the gas tank.

I need a fork to get the toast out of the toaster oven.

Look, the power line is sparking! Ooh, sparkly . . .

Wait, the gas is the pedal on the left, isn't it?

Don't worry, he's a third year medical student.

They'll never take me alive!

Bad First Lines

-To the detective's keen senses, everything about the strange woman said she was in trouble, from her panic-stricken eyes which said she was scared, to her heavy breathing which said she had run a long way, to her mouth which said "I'M IN TROUBLE!"

-The moment she opened the door and saw his glistening bloody fangs, eerie red eyes, dark silk cape, and powdery white skin, she knew instantly three things: the gorgeous, sexy, teen was a vampire; she loved him instantly and with all her heart; and she had forgotten to get candy for Halloween again.

Affection by beverytender reviews
I'm not entirely sure where this came from, but it was very determined to be written. Sometimes it's too late to get close to someone even when it shouldn't be. No real pairing, although you could read it as Briar/Tris/Sandry/Daja all together, I guess.

Tea and Stories reviews
I'm writing a full length case-fic, and this is my favorite scene from it so far. I'll publish/edit more based on the reception this gets. The idea so far is that Ziva's been poisoned, and she's waiting in Autopsy while the team searches for a cure.

Hopefully the beginning to a series of unconnected NCIS LA drabbles. A mix of funny/pointless/fluffy/mushy/random/whatever-I-feel-like-writing. Plotless, but kind of fun.
