Author has written 21 stories for Harry Potter, and Newsies.

"I am the combined effort of everyone I've ever known." -Chuck Palahniuk

Previously DanceThroughInsanity.

What's to say? I'm just another girl trying to survive high school. I'm an Italian-Irish New Yorker with never enough time to write.

I would have to say that my most passionate worldly loves are coffee, the first British Invasion, and Chuck Palahniuk.

I recently completed Eleanor Rigby, a Harry Potter fic.

I've got a story going, Skipping Stones, which is a collection of Newsies drabbles of about three hundred words or less apiece. Then there's Elysium, a collection of oneshots about each newsie in his happiest of places.

I am writing Newsies oneshots as I please, so fairly often, and am planning a few multi-chapter newsies fics featuring Snittery and Spot, respectively. I also have PLANS BIG PLANS for some Harry Potter stuff to come.

I may extend beyond these two categories into something like Degrassi, RENT, Criminal Minds, etc.

Comments? Compliments? Constructive criticism? PM me!
