Author has written 8 stories for Harry Potter, NCIS, Glee, and Les Misérables.

hi. i'm not this bad with capitalization in my writing, but this makes me feel like e.e. cummings.

my name is sierra, and i am a poet, novelist, writer, or child, i don't really know what i am. i am undetermined in all aspects of my life.

i write fanfictions about many different things...Glee, Les Miserables, NCIS, Harry Potter, Law and Order: SVU, the occasional Hunger Games or Sarah Dessen Novel, or even, if i'm in the mood, another novel that i've fallen in love with.


{QUOTES}

"It was a pleasure to burn."-Fahrenheit 451

"They danced down the streets like dingledodies, and I shambled after as I've been doing all my life after people who interest me, because the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes "Awww!"-Jack Kerouac, On the Road

"I'm selfish, impatient, and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I'm out of control, and at times hard to handle. But, if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best." - Marilyn Monroe

"I became insane, with long intervals of horrible sanity."-Edgar Allen Poe (story of my life)

"Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and right doing, there is a field. I'll meet you there."-Rumi

"Pain-that's what life is all about, isn't it?"-Julian Barratt

"Relationships are about trust, Blaine...and i don't trust you anymore." -Kurt Hummel

"It is time for us all to decide who we are...Do we fight for the right to a night at the opera now? Have you asked of yourselves what's the price you might pay? Is this just a game for rich young boys to play?" - Enjolras

A black walks into a room and sits down. A white man said, "Coloured people are not allowed here." The black man turned around and stood up. He then said: "Listen sir...when I was born I was BLACK, when I grew up I was BLACK, when I'm sick I'm BLACK, when I go into the sun I'm BLACK, when I'm cold I'm BLACK, when I die I'll be BLACK. But you sir, when you're born you're PINK, when you grow up you're WHITE, when you're sick, you're GREEN, when you go in the sun you turn RED, when you're cold you turn BLUE and when you die you turn PURPLE. And you have the nerve to call me coloured? Post this on your profile if you hate racism.

I am the girl kicked out of her home because I confided in my mother that I am a lesbian.
I am the prostitute working the streets because nobody will hire a transsexual woman.
I am the sister who holds her gay brother tight through the painful, tear-filled nights.
We are the parents who buried our daughter long before her time.
I am the man who died alone in the hospital because they would not let my partner of twenty-seven years into the room.
I am the foster child who wakes up with nightmares of being taken away from the two fathers who are the only loving family I have ever had. I wish they could adopt me.
I am one of the lucky ones, I guess. I survived the attack that left me in a coma for three weeks, and in another year I will probably be able to walk again.
I am not one of the lucky ones. I killed myself just weeks before graduating high school. It was simply too much to bear.
We are the couple who had the Realtor hang up on us when she found out we wanted to rent a one-bedroom for two men.
I am the person who never knows which bathroom I should use if I want to avoid getting the management called on me.
I am the mother who is not allowed to even visit the children I bore, nursed, and raised. The court says I am an unfit mother because I now live with another woman.
I am the domestic-violence survivor who found the support system grow suddenly cold and distant when they found out my abusive partner is also a woman.
I am the domestic-violence survivor who has no support system to turn to because I am male.
I am the father who has never hugged his son because I grew up afraid to show affection to other men.
I am the home-economics teacher who always wanted to teach gym until someone told me that only lesbians do that.
I am the man who died when the paramedics stopped treating me as soon as they realized I was transsexual.
I am the person who feels guilty because I think I could be a much better person if I did not have to always deal with society hating me.
I am the man who stopped attending church, not because I don't believe, but because they closed their doors to my kind.
I am the person who has to hide what this world needs most, love.
I am the person who is afraid of telling his loving Christian parents he loves another male.
Re-post this if you believe homophobia is wrong. Please do your part to end it.


If you don't believe in same sex marriage, don't marry someone of your same sex. If you don't believe in abortion, don't get an abortion. It's really quite simple.
