Ariana Fortigue here, at your service!
I first started getting interested in creating stories when I was 10 years old. At that time, it was only one-paged fairy tales and cute little stories. My English tuition teacher encouraged me to write more, and always read what I wrote. My first story, if I remember correctly, is titled 'The Flying Blind Mice'. It's about a blind little mice that wants to fly in the sky. Thinking back, it was pretty childish, but my teacher said that it's 'adorable' and that I have 'a creative mind and writing style'. I didn't really understand it at that time, but I was glad that my teacher liked it. Too bad my memory's awful, cause I can't seem to remember what's the teacher's name and how does she look like.
Anyway, that's actually one of the things that got me to start writing stories and posting them here at Fanfiction. I want to share my stories, and let others enjoy it too! If you love reading stories as much as I do, I bet you enjoy thinking about another scene to add into the book, what if the character didn't die, what'll happen if another problem pop up... So, me being me, just can't help but feel happy and content when I'm molding these thoughts into words, writing them out and sharing with others who had maybe thought of it.
Also, to those of you who did not know, I'm part of the Midnight Revenges, so go check out that account too!
School Days: It's going to be about how Holly gets along with high school life as a human, Artemis (forced to)being more 'normal', adventures and funny scences with their human friend(s). Janica is a girl who really exist in my school, though the personallity isn't right. This story is probably going to be a loooong way till completed.
Percy Jackson and the Olympians:
Diary of a Demigod: This story, minus the mythical parts, really did happen in real life. I actually intended to write a diary or something like that to record down important events or some of my mindless thoughts.(Someone told me that I have quite a unique mind) But once I read through the first few paragraphs, I had a brainstorm and decided to alter it a little to fit a PJO story. In the first chapter, other then the thunder rumbling thingy, all of it are completely true. I even need to hide this story from some people because this story contains absolutely truthful thoughts and I really don't want to offend anyone. Jeanne is real too. In real life, one of my very best friends has the middle name 'Jean'.
School Starts Now: Just a series of one-shots about Percy's school life. I've always wonder what mortals thought of him in school, and how he copes. In TLO, I gathered that he had becomed quite handsome and maybe more mature due to the war and this idea suddenly hit me. Anyway, it's going to be a short story, maybe less than fifteen chapters.

They walked in tandem, each of the ninety-two students, filing into the already crowded auditorium. With their rich maroon gowns flowing and the traditional caps, they looked almost as grown up as they felt.
Dads swallowed hard behind broad smiles, and Moms freely brushed away tears. This class would not pray during the commencements, not by choice, but because of a recent court ruling prohibiting it.
The principal and several students were careful to stay within the guidelines allowed by the ruling. They inspirational and challenging speeches, but no one mentioned divine guidance and no one asked for blessings on the graduates or their families.
The speeches were nice, but they were routine until the final speech receive a standing ovation.
A solitary student walked proudly to the microphone. He stood still and silent for a moment, and then, it happened.
All 92 students, every single one of them, suddenly sneezed.
The student on stage simply looked at the audience and said, "God bless you." And he walked off stage.
The audience exploded into applause. This graduating class had found a unique way to invoke God's blessing on their future with or without a court's approval.
God Sent Me
A solier was home after serving in the Middle East. He decided to go back to school.
One day the class began talking about God and religion. Suddenly, the professor yelled, "God, if You are real strike me down!"
The class fell silent. A few minutes past and nothing happened. Again, the professor yelled, "God! If You are real strike me down!"
Then, the soldier got up from his seat, walked down to where the professor was and knocked him out cold. He casually walked back to his seat and sat down. A few minutes past and the professor came to. He shook his head, got to his feet and looked at the soldier.
"What in the world did you do that for?" he demanded.
The soldier calmly replied, "God was busy looking after our soldiers over in the Middle East. So, He sent me instead."
The University professor challenged his students with this question. "Did God create everything that exists?" A student bravely replied, "Yes he did!" "God created everything?" The professor asked.
"Yes sir", the student replied.
The professor answered, "If God created everything, then God created evil, since evil exists, and according to the principle that our works define who we are, then God is evil."
The student became quiet before such an answer. The professor, quite pleased with himself, boasted to the students that he had proven once more that the Christian faith was a myth. Another student raised his hand and said, "Can I ask you a question, professor?"
"Of course", replied the professor.
The student stood up and asked, "Professor, does cold exist?" "What kind of question is this? Of course it exists. Have you never been cold?" The students snickered at the young man's question.
The young man replied, "In fact, sir, cold does not exist. According to the laws of physics, what we consider cold is in reality the absence of heat. Every body or object is susceptible to study when it has or transmits energy, and heat is what makes a body or matter have or transmit energy. Absolute zero (-460F) is the total absence of heat; all matter becomes inert and incapable of reaction at that temperature. Cold does not exist. We have created this word to describe how we feel if we have no heat."
The student continued, "Professor, does darkness exist?"
The professor responded, "Of course it does."
The student replied, "Once again you are wrong, sir, darkness does not exist either. Darkness is in reality the absence of light. Light we can study, but not darkness. In fact we can use Newton 's prism to break white light into many colors and study the various wavelengths of each color. You cannot measure darkness. A simple ray of light can break into a world of Darkness and illuminate it. How can you know how dark a certain space is? You measure the amount of light present. Isn't this correct? Darkness is a term used by man to describe what happens when there is no light present."
Finally the young man asked the professor, "Sir, does evil exist?"
Now uncertain, the professor responded, "Of course as I have already said. We see it everyday. It is in the daily example of man's inhumanity to man. It is in the multitude of crime and violence everywhere in the world. These manifestations are nothing else but evil."
To this the student replied, "Evil does not exist sir, or at least it does not exist unto itself. Evil is simply the absence of God. It is just like darkness and cold, a word that man has created to describe the absence of God. God did not create evil. Evil is the result of what happens when man does not have God's love present in his heart. It's like the cold that comes when there is no heat or the darkness that comes when there is no light."
The professor sat down totally deflated.
