Author has written 42 stories for Glee, Marching Band, Great Gatsby, Frozen, and Mass Effect.

I'm just a writer. Nothing more. Nothing less.


NOTE: On Hiatus.

My life's sped up, so I can't promise updates or new oneshots anytime soon.

Obligations/work/reality come before writing.

Hope everyone's doing well!

Hello! You've stumbled across my profile page for one of two reasons! Either:

1.) You've read one of my stories.

2.) An erroneous mouse click brought you here.

Either way, I hope you enjoy any brief time you might spend here and I wish you the most pleasant of days!

I'm TheSilentPen! I'm a writer and history nut. You see, I'm one of those annoying people that believes humanity learns from history. I take bits of reality and mix them with my imaginings to give you stories. So... you receive semi-historical documents each time you read a story. How educational!

I'm a foreign language enthusiast (I speak Spanish decently, so you may write reviews in it if you wish), reading and coffee addict, and a gamer.

I want to note that I update when I'm sure an update is ready. I won't update unless I'm SURE the story is leading where I want it to go and will give YOU the best amount of entertainment.

I'm a notoriously BAD updater when life speeds up. Real life obligations/work/reality ALWAYS come first over my stories. Please be patient with me. If I'm not updating, there's probably a VERY good reason for it.

Anyway, that's my little profile drabble.

I hope you enjoy my stories :)
