The avatar I'm using as my image was kindly provided by this artist: http://carlyhwangart.tumblr.com/ Check out her work! It's great. :3

Follow me on my Tumblr, I'm actually posting things there. Like an old story, Tadaima. O-O Click me: http://explodingdandelion.tumblr.com/

I'm not dead, I swear. I just pretend to be, as it amps up the tension.

There will be stories. So many stories over many different things. Turtles, especially. So many turtles.

I'm going to write more of what I want to write when I want to write it. Hope everyone is willing to go along for the ride.

Message me, as I don't bite. College is killer though and I can disappear without a trace.

Until we meet again, or something to that effect.
