12/6/13: Quick Update!! I've finally decided on a new story, and it's actually none of the choices in my poll (whoops). I'm going to get started on it and write a good chunk of it before posting. See below for a summary of Diamond Girls!
Summary: Erik and Nadir have been all over the world, but when political intrigue and terrorist activity draw them back to the United States, they never would have imagined that the center of the foreign conspiracies could be taking place at Cartier School of the Performing Arts. The shining beacon of the arts in the center of Washington D.C., Cartier has long held a reputation for being the jewel of the country's capital city. But when Erik and Nadir enter the scene, all is not as beautiful and wholesome as it may appear. Amidst intrigues of the students, the Diamond Girls of Cartier, and the country's most prominent politicians, a darkness may be lurking that threatens to take the country to the very brink of destruction. Can Erik find the evil amidst all the goodness, or will the sparkle of Cartier conceal the true flaws beneath the surface? Perhaps the only way to do so will be to obtain a Diamond Girl of his own...

For fear of sounding inadequate, or simply excessively dull, I'll give you a quick taste of my style, likes/dislikes, etc, etc.
While I have no favorite author, my favorite genre of writing is historical fiction, namely romance and action/adventure. I love Victorian lit, fantasy and a plethora of modern novels. However, Phantom by Susan Kay is probably my favorite book, and my favorite series is Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery. I also love J.K. Rowling (who doesn't?), Maggie Stiefvater, Karen Marie Moning, Jane Austen, Charlotte Bronte, etc.
Some of my favorite quotes...

"It was my view then, and still is, that you don't make war without knowing why.
