11 Things: Two Months Later
1. I haven't known you long, but you're sort of a mentor to me, even though we're the same age. You've seen so much more of the world, and you've brought a new kind of knowledge that I can learn from, and I try to absorb it like a sponge. At the same time, I have come to know that you're as human as I am, not that ethereal, elfish being I saw you as before. But, despite the faults I know you possess, that makes you all the more dear to me. You seem so distant sometimes, and that frightens a lot of people. It used to frighten me, but that was before you opened up into the bright, caring, strong, but ultimately quiet person I know you to be.
1. I can’t say that much has changed in the past few months, save that I’m more aware of how many people don’t like you. I can honestly say I don’t really understand that; they dislike you because you stand up for what you believe in. That baffles me beyond belief. I think if they took the time to think outside their limite

2. We haven't even known each other that long either, and yet I feel like I've known you all of my life. From that tiny little link that brought us together, we've grown something grand and ridiculously fun. I know you're working a lot this summer, so we don't get to talk much, but we never seem to drift apart. You have the peculiar talent of being a

One Man, Drowning in Pride
The ambrosial sunlight spilled through the streets of Verona that day like water from a bucket. Even though it was a warming, clear light, the air was chill, and the briskness told of a cold autumn and hard winter to come. But it was only the end of August now, and for the moment the thoughts of hardship were put to the back of minds.
In the courtyard of the Capulet house, the sound of wood-upon-wood rang out, echoing over the cobblestones and up to the clear blue sky above Verona. Meanwhile the servants and adults of the house were about other business, two young male offspring of the noble family had gathered in the courtyard in order to duel.
Despite his furious parrying of the other boy’s attacks, Tybalt found himself being forced to take steps backwards. A frown of frustration found its way onto his face, and he sidestepped to avoid being backed up against the wall of the courtyard. As he stepped, he begin to press his own attacks with the wooden rapier, trying to keep Benedi

The Only One to Ever Know
Before yesterday, if you had asked me who would live longer -- Wyatt or me -- I would have chuckled sardonically and unfalteringly pointed you in Wyatt's direction. By any rights, I should be dead, and he alive, but the tables have been turned, and I am the survivor.
Yesterday was the twenty-sixth of October, eighteen eighty-one. Yesterday was also the last day of Wyatt Earp's life.
There had only been one cowboy left, Frank McLaury, and I'd had him in my sights. He thought I was in his -- the gun in my right hand had run out of ammunition. But he was quickly picked off, either by my bullet or Morgan's, I know not which. It had not occured to me that McLaury's pistol had gone off -- not till later.
As I turned, nodding to Morgan, I saw Wyatt, standing next to his brother. He had a slightly puzzled expression on his face; there was a frown on his lips, and his dark eyebrows were furrowed in an expression that could have been terrifyingly fierce, but was more comical than anything.

Like The Snow
A rosy flush rose to Christine’s cheeks, and her smile only widened as she hiked up her skirts above her boot-clad feet and ran laughing through the Paris snow from the night before. “You’re going to have to run faster than that, Raoul!” she called like the young child she had been long ago, when they had played together, in the house by the sea.
How she loved the snow. It was so white, so pure, and sparkled like diamonds in the sunshine. Though it may be trampled into slush and mud underneath countless feet and carriages in the Paris streets, somewhere, in the country, at least, there was somewhere where it remained undisturbed, save for as it dropped off of tree branches, or the light, dainty steps of some animal.
And also, she remembered the many snowball fights that had occurred between Raoul and herself, until their faces were flushed with cold, and they fled to the warm interior of her father’s house, to listen to a song or two from his violin, and snuggl

I am an index of neuroses and contrary traits.
Interests
The fact that this account is essentially dead is not news. However, I am happy to announce that I have a new one, co-owned with my girlfriend. If you wish to see new works from me, please check it out.

I will most likely be leaving up what is still in this gallery, since the majority of it is awful fanfiction. Nevertheless, I've grown quite a bit as a writer since then, and I'm happy to be moving on to new and better things.
