I am currently studying Literature and History in University, aspiring to be an editor/publisher, if not a writer myself. 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.
Interests
Finishing up my third semester at uni. Turns out I could've actually done a WRITING poetry course this time round. Will have to wait that out until next year now. I did take a READING poetry course, same lecturer runs both and now he's out sick, so I'm a little worried. I've loved the course, and learnt so much, come to appreciate poetry so much more than pretty words on paper. And my lecturer/tutor is just so incredibly enthusiastic, safe to say he's my favourite so far.

Not sure how many people still follow my work, more than understandable since it's been almost two months since my last piece, far more since I wrote anything worth looking at. Hoping over the next six weeks of holidays, I might come across something to re-inspire me. Will probably end up being more sappy love crap unless I go somewhere beautiful. I've mostly been going between home, uni and my library for quite a while, occasionally hanging with friends, going to small local bands' concerts.

And I've actually been feeling good. Really good. This last semester has been a lazy one (finishing assignments the day or two beforehand) but I feel like I have improved emotionally and as a person since starting uni and being more sociable (if only among my little group of friends outside uni). Hopefully more to come!

Zoie was the child of Death and Love. Of all Death’s children (and he had many, by many different lovers) Zoie was the most inelegant, wild and fair. Her freeness of spirit did not mean that she was happy, and she grew up lonely and estranged. Her siblings loved her dearly, but so vast were the differences between them. When she came of age, Zoie knew the most of Death, and the least of Love.

At this time, she found she was unsuited for any of the roles her siblings were given. Not a leader in any sense of the word, she was disorganised and hated the confines of a room. But she had great sympathy, and fought well for the sake of innocents.
Beautiful Fatality (WIP)
Loosely inspired by Kelly Sue DeConnick's Pretty Deadly
Loading...
Alice woke surrounded by trees. Small noises were slowly growing as the moon settled down and the sun poked through the lowest trees on the other side of the grove. As she owned nothing but dresses, the child felt trapped as her skirt entangled her legs, the grogginess of a short, uncomfortable sleep helping little. Despite her mother's treatment, she had endured all the luxuries of wealth, and certainly never slept on a cold dirt floor. Her doll, Annabelle, lay a few feet from the child, already covered in dead leaves and soil, and as she was picked up and brushed off, she tried to warn her companion against venturing further. Better to just return home, love. Please. As always, her caution went unheard.
“Come along Annabelle,” Alice’s voice was bright, hopeful, and unbearably naïve. Not for the first time, Annabelle prayed to whoever was listening that she might one day be heard by her owner, and save them so much pain.
***
The girl had brought little food, which might sate her appetite for the morning. Annabelle hoped she knew better than to eat from the forest, but it wouldn’t matter in a few hours regardless. Hunger made people desperate, as she had seen firsthand. She feared what it would do to a child.
But for now, Alice was happy, and glowed in her liberation. Every tree was a wonder, the sheer wildness of the outside world a curiosity, compared to the carefully planned and well-tended gardens of home.    

They followed the sun until it reached the middle of the sky, and here Alice began to experience the first pangs of hunger. This was quickly followed by fear, with the sounds of harsh footsteps echoing from the shadows.
