Author has written 5 stories for Gone, Hunger Games, and Harry Potter.
Poll story descriptions:
Louder than Words:
Sequel to Fish in the Sea. Another year at Headline, and in the shadow of a miniature crisis, the characters must deal with the mistakes of their friends, their enemies, and themselves. And some will learn just how much louder actions speak than words.
In Another Life:
Au. Brianna and Dekka never find themselves at Coates. When the prestigious school of Headline Academy comes to town for a national basketball tournament, Dekka and Brianna meet as two very different people, and yet, the connection is just as easily found. In another life, do they have a chance to be more?
Okay, so Brianna is a little more different from the series as Dekka, but her background is also changed more to fit this story line. She's still fundamentally the same attention-loving, ridiculously brave, fight-loving Brianna though. Anyone looking for something fluffy and sweet would like this story. (Of course, it wouldn't be a story of mine if it wasn't riddled with humor of course. ])
The Second Wave
AU. Brianna, Jack, and Orc, and possibly a few others didn't die. Nearly six months since the wall came down, and its victims are just beginning to fall back into the routine of a normal life. That is, until the second wall appears, encircling the entire country. It's their worse nightmare, except this time, the target is much bigger, and the enemy is far stronger.
Heya! I'm Starry-eyed Dreamer86! A flute-playing, book-loving, music breathing band geek! Lol, it cracks me up when people freak out over the fact that I label myself a geek, but I am.
So, I'm a very patient person, and am happy to answer almost any questions you have about, well anything, except of course personal information, so PM me if there's something you need to ask, or if you just want to talk. I'm happy to help in any way I can. ;)
Another thing about myself, I love books and reading! XD And I love talking about books and reading, and I'm always looking for something new to read. So, if anyone wants to talk books, or wants an opinion on a book, or wants to suggest a book, I'm always game. :)

My name is sarah
I am but three,
My eyes are swollen
I cannot see,
I must be stupid
I mus be bad,
What else could have made
my daddy so mad,
I wish I were better
I wish I weren't ugly,
then maybe my Mommy
would still want to hug me,
I can't speak at all
I cant do a wrong
or else I'm locked up all day long
when I awake I am alone
the house is dark
my parents aren't home.
when my mommy comes home
I'll try to be nice,
so maybe I'll just get
one whipping tonight
Dont make a sound
I just heard a car
my daddy is back
from Charlies bar.
I hear him curse
my name he calls
I press myself
against the wall
I try and hide
from his evil eyes
I'm so afriad now
I'm starting to cry.
He finds me weeping
He shouts ugly words,
He says its my fault
that he suffers at work.
He slaps me and hit me
And yells at me more,
I finally get free
and I run for the door.
He's already locked it
and I'm starting to bawl
He takes me and throws me
against the hard wall.
I fall to the floor,
my bones nearly broken,
and my daddy continues,
with more bad words spoken.
"I'm sorry," I scream,
but its much to late
his face has been twisted
Into unimaginable hate.
The hurt and pain
Agian and agian
Oh please God, have mercy!
Oh please let it end!
And he finally stops
And heads for the door,
While I lay there motionless
Sprawled on the floor.
My name is Sarah
And I am but three,
Tonight my daddy
If you would ever do this to a child then go crawl under a rock and die.
Her hair was up in a ponytail, her favorite dress tied with a bow,
Today was Daddy's Day at school and she couldn't wait to go.
But her mommy tried to tell her, that she probably should stay home,
Why the kids not might understand, if she went to school alone.
But she was not afraid, she knew just what to say,
What to tell her classmates of why he wasn't there today.
But still her mother worried, for her to face this day alone,
And that was why, once again, she tried to keep her daughter home.
But the little girl went to school eager to tell them all,
About a dad she never sees, a dad who never calls.
There were daddy's along the wall in back for everyone to meet.
Children squirming impatiently, Anxious in their seats.
One by one the teacher called, a student from the class,
To introduce their daddy, as seconds slowly passed.
At last the teacher called her name, every child turned to stare,
Each of them was searching, a man who wasn't their.
"Where's her daddy at?"
She heard a boy call out. "She probably doesn't have one." another student dared to shout.
And from somewhere near the back, she heard a daddy say,
"Looks like another deadbeat dad, too busy to waste his day."
The words did not offend her, as she smiled up at her mom,
And looked back at her teacher, who told her to go on.
And with hands behind her back, she slowly began to speak,
And out of the mouth of a child, came words incredibly unique.
"My daddy couldn't be here, because he lives so far away,
But I know he wishes he could be, since this is such a special day.
And though you cannot meet him, I wanted you to know,
All about my daddy, and how he loves me so.
He loved to tell me stories, he taught me to ride my bike,
He surprised me with pink roses, and taught me to fly a kite.
We used to share fudge sundaes, and ice cream in a cone,
And though you cannot see him, I'm not standing here alone.
'Cause my daddy's always with me, even though we are apart,
I know because he told me he'll forever be in my heart."with that, her little hand reached up, and lay across her chest,
Feeling her own heartbeat, beneath her favorite dress.
And somewhere in the crowd of dads, her mother stood in tears,
Proudly watching her daughter, who was wise beyond her years.
For she stood up for the love, of a man not in her life,
Doing what was best for her, doing what was right.
And when she dropped her hand back down, staring straight into the crowd,
She finished with a voice so soft, but it's message clear and loud.
"I love my daddy very much, he's my shining star,
And if he could, he'd be here, but heaven's just too far.
You see he is a Marine, and died just this past year,
When a roadside bomb hit his convoy, and taught Canadians to fear.
But sometimes when I close my eyes, it's like he never went away,"
And then she closed her eyes, and saw him there that day.
And to her mother's amazement, she witnessed with surprise,
A room full of daddy's and children, all starting to close their eyes.
Who knows what they saw before them, who knows what they felt inside,
Perhaps for merely a second, they saw him by her side.
"I know your with my daddy,"to the silence she called out,
And what happened next, made believers out of those once filled with doubt.
Not one of them could explain it, for each of their eyes had been closed,
But there on the desk beside her, was a fragrant, long-stemmed, pink rose.
And a child was blessed for only a moment, by the love of her shining star,
And given the gift of believing that heaven is never to far.
They say it takes a minute to find a special person, an hour to appreciate them,a day to love them, but then an entire lifetime to forget them
Lol, I love this poem!
Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
Mummy...Johnny brought a gun to school
Everybody take revenge! Crap on a pigeon!
I have multiple personalities, and none of them like you.
be nice to your children, they pick your nursing home.
don't drink and drive, You might hit a bump and spill it everywhere.
Life's not about hiding from the storm, it's about dancing in the rain
At least when you stand in the rain... one can see the tears
Hoping makes the world go round.
Yesterday is the past, tomorrow is the future, but today is a gift, that's why it's called the present
One day we will look back on this, laugh nervously, and change the subject.
Life isn't passing me by, it's trying to run me over.
You laugh now because you're older than me by mere months, but when you're 30 and I'm still 29, who will be laughing then?
You say I'm not cool. But cool is another word for cold. If I'm not cold, I'm hot. I know I'm hot. Thanks for embracing it.
I don't obsess! I think intensely.
They say "Guns don't kill people, people kill people." Well I think the guns help. If you stood there and yelled BANG, I don't think you'd kill too many people
I'm not paranoid... WHICH ONE OF MY ENEMIES TOLD YOU THIS?!
Don’t knock on death’s door. Ring the bell and run. He hates that.
If at first you don't succeed, destroy all evidence that you tried.
Shoot first ask questions when you retire.
I often wonder what i've done with my life. But then my clinically sane friends visit me, and I remeber why I enjoy being nuts.
Mistakes happen. But try telling that to the UN after you cause WWIII.
If you piss off the Navy, CIA, FBI, secret service, and Spetznaz all in six mintues, you know you've lived a good life. If you do it in five, you're a total failure.
If you believe in Jesus Christ put this on your profile and don't just ignore this because in the Bible it says if you deny me, I will deny you in front of my father in the gates of heaven.
And that's all I feel like saying at the moment so..YaY! Welcome to my profile!

History Repeats itself rules:
1: No one is perfect. Perfect characters will not be accepted and that is final.
2: Try to be creative. Honestly I don't want fifty Harry, and Rons and Malfoys. Also, while I'm thinking about it, I don't want everyone to be in one house. Ravenclaw and Hufflepuff are just as important as Gryffindor and Slytherin, and we have to have some baddies, right? And if they play quidditch, let's remember that there are four different positions so let's try to spread them out, and I would like the ages to be spread out as well. Not everyone should be in the oldest group, or the youngest group.
3: This story is going to involve people dying, just like the original series. By submitting me your character, you're giving me control of their life, or death, during the story, so don't eat me if they die.
That's pretty much it for now, if I come across something that bothers me during submissions then I'll add it.
History Repeats Itself Form:
Nickname:(If it's a nick name they go by all the time, like Ron instead of Ronald, then add that in parenthesis or quotes or something in the name thing so I know. Otherwise, it can go here)
Year:(So the age and year corresponds here, so whatever year they're in will also tell me their age)
Birth Date:(This is optional. Some people feel the birthdate is important, so I'm allowing them the option of giving it.)
Appearance:(Be descriptive please)
Personality:(include things such as likes or dislikes, or hobbies.)
Family/Blood status:(If siblings go to the school, then I would like some description even if it's brief, and if the family is supposed to be in the storyline for any other reason, then also give a little description. Please.)
Quidditch:(Also optional. If they do play, what position, and what state is their broomsticks in, or are they using school sticks? I will make up new model names since it's some time in the future)
Pets?:(If it's something other than an owl, cat, or toad, then I'll be open to suggestion, but I don't want something big or loud, like a dog, because there is no way a school would allow that, right?
Who We Really Are submission rules:
1. No Mary-sues! Trust me, you don't want me touching those!
2. Not everyone is purely good or purely bad. I want a few teetering on the line between the two.
3. If you submit a Headline Academy student with a bad home life, Be Creative! I don't want a bunch of Dekka's with parents that have gay-phobia, or Brianna's who have evil step-parents, or a whole slu of kids who have abusive parents. There's a lot of other bad home situations. And if you submit a Headline Academy student on scholarship, Be Creative! Remember, Headline accepts almost any talent.
4. There is a chance your character will die! This is a dangerous situation, people are gonna die! Don't attack me if it's one of your characters.
5. Unless they're just completely absent from their lives, or they died before the character had any recollection of them or anything, give a little description on the family and close friends. We all know we think a lot about people we loose.
6. Be descriptive. If I don't can't see your character the way you do, then I'm going to run with the character, and make them my own, and it may not be the way you imagined.
7. I can not stress this one enough! Be creative!
8. If you're character is a mutant, don't copy cat Grant. I won't say anything about the more general powers, like telekinesis and super speed/strength, but if I get the more creative powers, like power gauging and anti-gravity, I simply wont do it. I'll ask you to change the power, and if not , then I'll simply throw it out. Sorry, nothing personal.
9. Another mutant thing. This won't be exactly like Gone, where there was only one of every power. There will be some powers that we may see more than one of, but I'm using two of the same at most, and mutant powers will be shown on the list, so if you see two of the same power, don't make that be your characters power please. And try to be creative with the powers, I'd like at least a few creative powers.
10. No Healers! I already have a healer, and it's VERY important that there be only one.
11.(Lol, totally forgot to post the password. DX thanks to those who improvised.)Send the following password with or ahead of your form: The line between good and evil is permeable and almost anyone can be induced to cross it when pressured by situational forces.
12. You can submit as many characters as you like, but only 2 mutants per every normal.
Also, not a rule, but you all need to know. I'm not doing a bar system. It was creative, and cootos to Micheal Grant, but I have my own thing.

List of characters: If you see a status out to the side that says unique, then that is the only one, so no trying to duplicate. The other statuses will be explained in the story, although I think you'll be able to guess. I won't label all of the mutants just yet, but I'm going to go ahead and lock a few into place.

This is a list of the main characters I know I'm going to have. It is subject to change(of course).
