Author has written 8 stories for RENT.

My name's Carissa and I'm 19 years old, currently attending college with an undecided major.

-I love writing (obviously), singing, acting, and music, which is why I often use music and songs to help inspire what I write.

-I'm a RENThead, and while I've written for other fandoms in the past, this account is purely for my Rent fanfiction which will almost always feature Mark and Roger, with the occassional story that strays from that.

-I am most like Mark, but it's much easier for me to write Roger. I'm not sure why this is except maybe Mark is so much like me writing for him is not within my comfort levels? Or something? Or maybe that because I'm so much like Mark and Mark knows Roger better than he knows himself... ? LoL, I don't know.

-My favorite authors are all amazing. And I am a personal fan of them all so please check them out! My favorite stories also are a great list for people to enjoy if you're looking for some amazing RENT fanfiction, check those stories and authors out!
