Author has written 1 story for Fairy Tales.

Hey there! Here's a bit about myself:

I'm 21 and live in Illinois. It's a decently large state with more than just Chicago to boast about (I think 90% of the towns in Illinois can boast some weird, obscure, tiny historical reference to Abe Lincoln- no joke).

Obviously, I like books. And writing. It's been a very long time since I've written anything, though.

My favorite story of all time is Beauty & the Beast- and any variation on it. My heart bursts with excitement and anticipation as the bad guy slowly becomes loveable and the love story blossoms! And yes, I am totally rooting for Rumplestiltskin/Mr. Gold in "Once Upon A Time." Honest. He's the Beast. I am obligated to root for him. I don't approve of his actions, but I love him.

Now I sound like a crazy. Moving on.

I love Disney more than the average six year old. It's true. (That didn't help the crazy, now did it?) I own most copies of Disney movies on VHS still.

My book collection is overflowing and I don't have a place to put most of my books. They're in piles. I should invest in a bookshelf.

I recently went to the UK & Ireland. For the record, Wales is beautiful. It really is.

I'm a ginger. It's completely inaccurate to say we have no souls. On the contrary. For every freckle we have, there's a soul that we've stolen. Either way, we're win-win as far as dementors go. If we have no soul, dementors don't affect us. If we have more than one soul, then we need to be kissed a bazillion times before we're screwed. Yeah. I just said bazillion.

So far, here's my single story on here:

Mother Said to Climb a Tree: Victoria Elizabeth has lived a very sheltered life since the death of her mother. She lives comfortably but restlessly with her father on their large estate. On her eighteenth birthday, Victoria's father gives her the gift she's been wanting: adventure. Except this adventure proves to be quite a bit more exciting than she expected! After several dangerous encounters, acquiring a very chivalrous future husband, and continuing their journey with no more mishaps, they make their way back home, but even this proves to be easier said than done. They stop for the night at a scary looking old manor in the middle of a deserted forest during a storm where nothing is as it seems. That's when Victoria realizes that she will have to stand up for herself and for her father- and be the woman her mother would have been proud of.

The Slipper Fit by Carys Valerian reviews
For all of his eccentricities , I never thought the prince mad, but there was no other reasonable explanation for the proclamation I'd just read. After all, how could one possibly find their true love based on the size of a shoe? - Cinderella and not. All at the same time.
