Author has written 10 stories for Animal Crossing, Sonic the Hedgehog, and Earthbound.

Name: EveningCicada Age: 15

Hi! I'm a girl from NYC who dreams of writing her life away. To me, nothing is more beautiful than language itself. I have a strong love for culture and art. I will succeed because I believe in the beauty of my dreams. :)

I live to inspire.

Likes: poetry, shirley temples, correct grammar, the '80s on 8 XM radio channel, Everybody Hates Chris, animals, photography, and dusty books with yellowed pages

Ah, but I'll narrow it down for you.

Favorite TV Shows: Everybody Hates Chris, Friends, Sonic X, The Adventures of Super Mario Bros. 3 (don't laugh; it's an epic show)

Favorite Colors: blue, orange, and that mixture of pink/orange/red during a sunset

Favorite Books: The Book Thief, Julie of the Wolves, Halo, The Wolves of Mercy Falls series, That Summer, Flipped, Super Mario: How Nintendo Conquered America, Can't Get There From Here

Favorite Movies: Taken, Taken 2, Contagion, Back to the Future, Footlose

Favorite Singers/Artists/Bands: Salt-n-Pepa, Owl City, Breanne Duren, Lights, Swimming With Dolphins, Lee Dewyze, OneRepublic, Nickelback

I enjoy all types of music.

Favorite Video Games: Animal Crossing, Tetris, Super Mario, Zelda, Dragon Quest, Sonic the Hedgehog

Favorite Authors: Markus Zusak (The Book Thief), Maggie Stiefvater (Wolves of Mercy Falls) (I read a large variety of novels, so I don't really have many favorite authors)

Favorite Poets: Edgar Allan Poe, Robert Frost, Carl Sandburg, Pablo Neruda

Favorite Foods: chocolate ice cream, pulled pork, and anything with hot sauce

Favorite Ice Cream Topping: those confetti things at Carvel! You know, the tiny colorful circles? xD

All right, now to the REAL biography!

My original profile was pretty vague, so I'm starting over. I absolutely love animals and have two loving dogs. They're my best friends in the whole world. I write poetry and stories probably more than I breathe.

I adore those who read and review my fanfiction! So thank you soooo much! I'd be nothing without you, seriously. Also, I love fanfiction! It can totally bring your favorite game/movie/book/soup (eh, whatever you use this site for) to life by coming up with new plots! I could spend days on this site.

My dream is to become a neuroscientist/author/superhero and settle somewhere in Manhattan. Those big city lights seem to call to me everyday, and I haven't a choice but to chase them. Though I can be pretty silly sometimes, I take what I do very seriously and will always follow my heart.

Feel free to message me anytime; I love talking to people. (Though in real life I'm pretty quiet...)

I'm an only child, so I spend most of my time alone. And I love it! Some solitude allows me to reflect on my feelings, my writing, my dreams, my future. I am often told I think way too much about things, and that got me thinking. Do I really think too deeply on stuff? What if-- oh.

I'm unhealthily obsessed with the '80s and I collect vintage consoles and old video games.

Please, please please, NEVER give up on your dreams!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Chase them! Hunt them! Track 'em down! This is YOUR life!!! Go out there and live it to the fullest! Dare to dream. ;)

I really hope my writing inspires you in some way! :)

Now to the silly stuff!

Well, I do. -_-



Fellow readers,

I would like to personally thank you for reading The Other Life of Alley Paine. You have all been supporting me since the very first chapter, and I really can't thank you enough for your encouragement. Your reviews are beautiful and I will keep them in my heart whenever I write. My readers kept me going. I couldn't have written this story without the kind words of my fellow fans. I deeply appreciate it. I don't say it often enough, but seriously, thank you. I've been lucky enough to have such wonderful opportunities to write stories that people think of as "beautiful." That means so much to me.

I wrote The Other Life of Alley Paine to get in touch with readers' hearts. I want Alley to be a girl you can remember and grow attached to, and not just another character in another story. She had obstacles and situations like anyone on Earth; she was a regular girl with a strong will and a pure personality. I'm really fond of her, actually. She's so naïve and innocent.

It breaks my heart to finish this story; it really does. This was the first Animal Crossing fanfiction I've written and stuck to, so it holds a special place in my writing collection.

For all of you who are familiar with Alley's illness, leukemia, let me just say that those who have fought (or are fighting) the battle are the strongest people in the world. Never give up because there's hope. A cure will come one day. You have to believe. My blessings go out to whoever is living with leukemia or another horrible disease. You're incredibly strong.

My fellow readers, keep these words with you wherever life leads you; this is my message to you: "Imagination is everything. It is the preview to life's coming attractions." (Albert Einstein)

Again, thank you all for your support. You are the reason I write and I couldn't have done it without you. Let's do this again sometime!

Keep on writing,



Please repost!
