I am an aspiring writer and/ or poet. I live for love and I have my hope in the hearts of my best friends and boyfriend. They are the ones who saved me.
I am currently 19, and I love penguins, red pandas and creepy things.
Send me a note of your tumblr, I'll give it a looksee.
Give a llama, get a llama :3
Interests
But I get present chocolate so it's all good.

Any way, updates updates...
Haven't been writing ANYTHING since my last upload. I keep thinking of kickass titles and outlines but that's about as far as I get. Hopefully I'll be writing something soon, potentially an ACTUAL SHORT STORY for the first time in a couple years (my folio entry - which I haven't uploaded - was absolute poop) going along with my love of gothic queer fiction. So, if I don't get around to that before uni semester starts, I'll upload whatever I have and move from there. 
I have actually been doing quite a bit of reading for once. Finally got through Northanger Abbey, the first of four books I should probably read before going back, and was surprised how much I thoroughly enjoyed it. The narration is quite awesome, as she denounces a lot of common tropes in gothic literature (my course is "Ghosts and the Gothic") and it ends up being less swooning damsels/doe-eyed girl-turned-temptress arm candy, and more this naive yet self empowered young "heroine" who actually learns actual life lessons. Safe to say I was surprised.
So I have three more to get through in less than 3 weeks. Shall be fun. 
  • Mood: Eager
  • Listening to: Gorillaz
  • Reading: Lady Audley's Secret
  • Watching: Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun
  • Playing: League
  • Drinking: V Ka-Boom

I'm glad you liked my Maka Albarn Artwork.

Maka Albarn by Chinnaru  
What did you like most about it :) (Smile)?

Just letting you know if you don't watch me or didn't see it that I made another version with Maka in her insane mode.

:hugs: Thank you for joining Authors-Club!   We are so glad to have you join our group and adding our work to our collection! 

On behalf of the group, here's just a little bit of information as to what we're about! :


-- We support the literature community of Deviant Art by creating a safe, creative atmosphere for artists to come together and make connections with one another.

-- Are you a little lost as to how to get involved in the writing side of DA? Take a look at this helpful guide, How to get started with the Lit Community.  It's got some wonderful advice and has helped many a deviant get their feet wet, so to speak, in the lit world!

-- We also opened up a chatroom!!  We're currently trying to set up a better schedule, but we'll host little chats here and there fairly soon!

-- Before you start submitting, please familiarize yourself with our Submission Rules! This is just to make sure everyone's on the same page as far as contributing work goes, and helps keep the group running smoothly!

Again, thank you so much for joining our club! If you need anything at all, do not be afraid to ask! Wither it be about our club, or even about the going on's in Deviant Art!  

I hope that you enjoy this group and if at any time you have questions, concerns, or ideas please contact me jackofalltrades0097 , or any of the other admin!  We're here to help!
