"We are told to remember the idea, not the man, because a man can fail. He can be caught, he can be killed and forgotten, but 400 years later, an idea can still change the world. I've witnessed first hand the power of ideas, I've seen people kill in the name of them, and die defending them... but you cannot kiss an idea, cannot touch it, or hold it... ideas do not bleed, they do not feel pain, they do not love. And it is not an idea that I miss, it is a man. - Evey, V for Vendetta." **UPDATE**28/07/13: Hi y'all! Daughter of Artemis (my novel) is finished, and now just needs tweaking and editing. But I'm not in the mood to do that, so I'm writing a new Historical, Gothic novel -very lightly- based on Beauty and the Beast entitled Absolution. The story I posted on here that I wrote when I was like 12 called Masked is an older version, but I am improving it as the story basis was a good idea, but my writing has now matured and so it needs to be updated. The first (and only for you guys- sorry! It needs to be somewhat private) chapter is on here, and I'd LOVE feedback from you guys! If you want to know more about either of my novels, just ask! XDIn my day-to-day life I am currently waiting to hear about my A2 results, and whether I get into UCL (August 15th- eek!) so have a wide open summer. So I'll probably be on a lot, but I may not be writing as I'll be playing with Absolution right now :)P.S. I will finish Ungodly and The Ghost of You at some point, but I have too many projects on the go atm! But for those of you who like them and want more- I will, I promise! And I will eventually write a sequel to my Vampire Diaries fan fiction Original Sin, but I need to re-watch the show, and have a lot more time and concentration!
