Author has written 2 stories for Percy Jackson and the Olympians.

Riddles:

I love riddles, so I have decided to post a few. PM me if you would like to know the answers or challenge me with a riddle. And yes, many (if not all) of these are stolen. I only claim credit for the ones that have an asterisk before them (which, as of yet, is none of them).

I am the beginning of eternity,
the end of time and space,
the beginning of every ending,
and the end of every race.
What am I?

I am in truth, a yellow fork, from tables in the sky. By inadvertent fingers dropped, the awful cutlery. Of mansions never quite disclosed, and never quite concealed, the apparatus of the dark is to ignorance revealed. What am I?
- Thanks to SimplySupreme for including this riddle in her story "I Am Arya", this poem was (according to SimplySupreme, I have not verified this) written by Emily Dickinson

A dagger thrust at my own heart
Dictates the way I'm swayed
Left I stand, and right I yield
To the twisting of the blade.
What am I?

One by one we fall from heaven
Down into the depths of past.
And our world is ever upturned
So that yet some time we'll last.
What are we?

only one color, but not one size.
stuck at the bottom yet easily flies.
present in sun but not in rain;
doing no harm, feeling no pain.
what am i?

I have more ready, just PM me if you want to hear them!

"Max?" Iggy knocked on the door. "Can I come in? I have to brush my teeth."
"No-- I'm in a towel." I called back.
"I'm blind." he said impatiently.
"No! You're kidding! Are you sure?"
-Max and Iggy, (Maximum Ride)

"You. Do you haf any qualities dat distinguish you in any way?"
Nudge chewed on a fingernail. "You mean, like, besides the WINGS?" She shook her shoulders gently, and her beautiful fawn-colored wings unfolded a bit.
His face flushed, and I felt like cheering. "Yes," he said stiffly. "Besides de vings."
"Hmm. Besides de vings." Nudge tapped one finger against her chin. "Um..." Her face brightened. "I once ate nine Snickers bars in one sitting. Without barfing. That was a record!"
"Hardly a special talent," ter Borcht said witheringly.
Nudge was offended. "Yeah? Let's see YOU do it."
"I vill now eat nine Snickers bars," Gazzy said in a perfect, creepy imitation of ter Borcht's voice, "visout bahfing."

"Does anysing on you vork properly?"
Iggy rubbed his forehead with one hand. "Well, I have a highly developed sense of irony."
Ter Borcht tsked. "You are a liability to your group. I assume you alvays hold on to someone's shirt, yes? Following dem closely?"
"Only when I'm trying to steal their dessert," Iggy said truthfully.
"Write that down." I told the assistant. "He's a notorious dessert stealer."

"Vhy did you let a girl be de leader?" ter Borcht asked, a calculating look in his eyes.
"She's the tough one." Fang said.
Darn right, I thought proudly.
"Is dere anysing special about you?" ter Borcht asked. "Anysing vorth saving?"
Fang pretended to think, gazing up at the ceiling. "Besides my fashion sense? I play a mean harmonica."

"I vill now destroy de Snickuhs bahrs!" Gazzy barked.' - The Flock and Ter Borcht (Maximum Ride)

There's a light at the end of every tunnel...lets just hope it's not a train.

Don't knock on death's door. Ring the bell and run. He hates that.

Whoever said nothing was impossible never tried slamming a revolving door...

Parents spend the first part of our lives teaching us to walk and talk, and the rest of it telling us to sit down and shut up.

When everything's coming your way, you're in the wrong lane.

People are like slinkies; basically useless, but ever so amusing to watch fall down the stairs.

life is not measured in the breaths we take but in the moments that take our breath away

don't talk unless you can improve the silence

The Boy Who Proved Her Wrong by prehistoric-huntress reviews
Thalia's life isn't the easiest life. She's got a lot of problems to deal with, but she does it pretty well because she's blocked herself off from everyone.
