A Never-Was Writer Takes Off the Concrete Shoes

by SyraStrange 14 Reviews

The title is a euphemism and this whole thing feels slightly narcissistic.

(I’m siding on “NO” concerning the OOCs, but I’ll give anything a chance if it's not in first person?)


the finest story you’ve written, in your personal opinion, is:

(lemme tell you a story…let’s say an already shitty laptop were to get infected with a nasty virus…and let’s say the girl who writes on said laptop doesn’t back up the FIVE YEARS of writing stored on Word and accidentally saved it on “TEMPLATES” and let’s also say the guys at Office Depot restored the shitty laptop to original factory status and completely wipeout the hardrive! Basically everything! What a stupid girl!)

Skittles and Cat Eyes
The chances are I’m not writing this again after losing the entirety of story, but it was a notfic wherein Gerard inexplicably turns into a cat and Frank is inexplicably his cat sitter and Pete Wentz is a gypsy and Bob is pissed but cool (as usual) and Gerard is actually haunted by a restless spirit named Caleb who masquerades as his conscience and meets a mental fabrication of a alterative version of himself, who names herself Ren. Basically the most crack one will ever put in a crackfic. Probably the fic I was the most notorious of. Yeah.


the poorest story you’ve written, in your personal opinion, is:

(oh my god hides face in shame )

Dirty Doesn’t Even Begin to Cover My Secrets ( x )
So…basically this terrible notfic of a story takes place in this sort of universe (too weird to explain, so just ignore the actual story and read the story notes) but also mixed with the basic plot of this story (a really really good story, by the way) and every band member you could think of. Gerard is supposed to be a “dominator vamp” but he’s actually all weak and pathetic (think basement!Gerard) and Frank is in WitSec and his name is Jack Antonio and there’s Pete/Mikey and Bob/Frank (if for like, two seconds) and Mikey/Ray and oh my god just read it and laugh at me if you want. A lot of people like it and I don’t think I do, and GAH I can’t bring myself to delete it because of GUILT.

sample of your writing, perchance?:


(fuck)


Sometimes, I realize I might not seem to have any form of empathy.

That is understandable. When you meet someone like me, or I should say if you meet someone like me, my physical and verbal language does not hold much passion or feeling. It often puts people off, and pushes them away from me. Despite what you may be thinking over, I do not feel lonely. I am rather glad no one has to stay stuck with my bluntness and lack of emotion. I am content with what simple and scant interactions I have with others.

And with that notion, I wonder how insane I actually am.

It could be possible that my genetic code has a mutation. Perhaps I was dropped into a puddle of biohazardous chemical waste. Those could be plausible causes for my psychopathic nature. Maybe I have seen something my feeble brain could not comprehend, and a case of post-traumatic stress disorder triggered this behavior. Still, I cannot help but speculate, even now.

I have never jumped from a second story window before.
