Intro to Me:
Hellooo! My name is Kristen and I really don't know what to say other than I love all forms of art. I'm pretty much a well-rounded Bohemian who's into literature, visual arts, and music. Non-Bohemian hobbies of mine (there are but a few) include swimming, walking, sleeping, talking, learning French and marching band.
o Obviously I enjoy writing (haha, why else would I be here?), and I write short stories (of course), poetry, and every once in a while I tale a crack at playwriting. My favorite author is Gregory MacGuire, the author of Wicked, Mirror Mirror, and Confessions of an Ugly Step-Sister. Other books I like include Sweetblood, Speak, Blood and Chocolate, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, and The Haunting of Alaizabel Cray. I enjoy psychological novels (Not the End of the World, about MPD, and Multiple Choice, about OCD) and like to read about fantasy and reality alike.
o I'm also very fond of drawing and sketching,trying to paint, and sculpting, but I absolutely despise pottery (the pottery wheel hates me). My favorite style is surrealism and my all-time favorite painter is Salvador Dali. I did a twenty-minute oral presentation in 8th grade English class on him while everyone else was doing reports on teen idols and television shows. His antics, such as showing up to an art gallery with a scuba diving outfit on and a six-foot-long loaf of bread, amused many of my classmates.
o I'm into filmmaking (there's a little bit of Marky in all of us) but not acting, so I'm always the one behind the camera, never in front of it. I enjoy plays and musicals, but not when I'm in them. Some of my favorite movies include Rent, Moulin Rouge, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Brokeback Mountain, Corpse Bride, and Rocky Horror Picture Show.
o I'm very musical, with my main instruments being trumpet (five years) and piano (nine years), though occasionally I'll venture into the darkness of my basement to cheer up my lonely drum set (yes, an actual drum set, not a pickle tub) and I can play The Mexican Hat Song on my guitar.
o The only time you'll ever see me dancing is if you peer through my second-story bedroom window when I'm absolutely sure nobody else is home (if you're perverted enough to be peeking through people's windows, watch out, I'm easily startled and you'll probably end up paralyzed in the bushes below), and the music I'll be dancing too will be either Rent (major RENThead for almost two years), Wicked (saw it on Broadway!), various movie soundtracks, new age, foreign (from all countries, my favorites being Tarkan and Rammstein), and Josh Groban (though that's not really dancing but sleeping music... I'm not saying it's boring, it just has the uncanny ability to knock me out).
Hear No Evil: This story documents Roger's life right up to his last days as he learns to cope with a hearing loss.It emanates angst and contains one-sided slash, but don't let that scare you away. Main characters are Roger and Mark, with Collins making frequent appearances and Mimi for a while.
Snow Wars: What happens when you mix the sadistic team of Collins and Roger with a defenseless Mark and some snow? Absolute chaos, of course. Witness the immaturity of our male Bohemians as they partake in a snow-themed quasi-war that seems to last way too long in Mimi and Mark's eyes. Just one more chapter and this story will be completed.
Sleepover: Angel hosts a sleepover party with the girls and reveals a side never before seen. Fluff with just a dash of angst. All female characters (including Angel, of course) are featured, with a little Mark and mentions of Collins and Roger (who gets no sex).
With Flying Colors: My first and perhaps only attempt at a Mark and other character pairing, With Flying Colors tells the story of Mark's developing relationship with an artist as a carnival.
Spring Fever: Spring Fever is all about Roger and April's high school relationship. It details how April deals with Roger's home life, his ever-changing personality, and the fact that he's practically living in a treehouse.
