Hello there! I am Grammar Defender, battling bravely, fighting fearsomely, and generally resisting the evil force of text-talk that has been oppressing the English language for so long. To give you an idea of what I do to protect our language, I have composed an extremely brief story. It's not fan fiction. It's just me enjoying writing.
The Mighty Grammar Defender
With my Sword of Learning held aloft in my right hand and my faithful dictionary in my left, I charge into the waiting mob of text talk. They eagerly set upon me, their deadly keyboards flashing in the bright sunlight. I slay an omg with a backhand sweep of my sword, then an lol with a quick thrust. Blocking the vicious attack of a rotfl with my dictionary, I scream my battle cry. FOR GRAMMAR!!!
On and on we fight. Days pass. Years pass. Still we battle on. Every so often I sink beneath the horde, borne down by weight of numbers. Yet every time I somehow manage to rise again. I fight what seems like an endless battle; a hopeless war. I fight for the English language, which for so long has been oppressed by text talk. We must only hope that I never fall.
I suppose that that's - in a sense - what I do in my off hours.
Newsflash - You know how I've actually been writing for a little bit? Well that stops now. I'm in the IB program at school, which, for those who don't know, basically means that I have absolutely zero free time. Maybe I'll see you in the summer. Or when I graduate. (Hopefully I'll be able to scrounge enough time to actually do something, but at this early point I just don't know. Wait and see, I guess.)
I will not flame. If I hate, loathe, and despise a story enough to flame it, I simply won't review it at all. If I don't review your story, however, it does not mean that I hate it. It more likely means that I just didn't review. Also, I will never ever swear in my reviews. If that pesky serial flamer publishes a swear in a review in my name, you'll know it wasn't me.
It's a boat. My boat, as it happens.
My Poll -
I talked with a professional editor about my novel the other day, and she says I should think about changing the title. Well, I've narrowed it down to those choices and now it's up to you. So shoo! Vote! Be free! Thank ye for your time.
I don't own Mysterious Benedict Society books or the characters. Or, for that matter, any other books (yet). I don't gain any profit from this. I just enjoy writing and sharing my ideas.
A little bit about me-
I am a fourteen-year-old girl. I like reading and writing and acting and singing and a healthy dose of algebra in the morning. I am sometimes called Gecko, Language Snob, Eggplant(Long story. No, I don't look like an eggplant. It's a personality thing.), Grammar Defender, and Disaster Zone (I can hurt myself doing anything - Once I even managed to cut myself on unbroken glass!). I normally go to a public school in Canada, but I home-schooled on a boat last year. I play the bagpipes, the trombone, the piano, and the recorder. I also sing, am head of lights on the school tech crew, and have a truly ridiculous number of extra-curriculars.
Coming Someday But Not Necessarily Soon-
Agent Kate (Chapter 3) - HIATUS
No Good Deed Goes Unpunished - (MBS) This is the story that I'm co-writing with Hopeless.
An Odd Conversation - (MBS) Well, an odd means of having a conversation, anyway. The Society takes a trip to the movie theater and end up exploring Constance's continuously evolving powers. I am determined to make this one cheerful.
The Life and Times of Martina Crowe - (MBS) An opportunity to try a new style of writing, as well as to discover who Martina Crowe is. Because, dear reader, not all are as cold and cruel as she first appears.
Heavier than Rock - (Airborn) If Matt Cruse is lighter than air, I guess that makes me heavier than rock. Story of my life, I suppose. That's me - Bruce Lunardi; heavier than rock.
Watchers - (MBS) This is the hitherto untold tale of how Milligan, Rhonda, Number Two, and Mr. Benedict kept a constant, unfaltering lookout over Nomansan Island. A tale of danger, riddles, debates, and most importantly, bravery.
Beware the Gemini - (MBS) When Milligan fulfills the promise for which he is named and takes the Mysterious Benedict Society for a trip to the mill, the Whisperer begins whispering once more. Oh no! Ledroptha Curtain must have escaped from jail! But not all is as it appears, and the four children plus Number Two soon find themselves up against a foe that they had never in their wildest dreams expected.

Updates and Stories-
I can't promise consistent updates. Who can? I have school, meals, and life. I'll generally try to update within a century of my last update, but one never knows what life will bring. I joined this website for the Mysterious Benedict Society fandom. I loved the books, and will try to keep everyone in character and in the mood. I may or may not slowly spread out and write for other fandoms, but MBS will always be the core.
So that's me. I hope that I improve this fandom, one 'lol' at a time.
