introduction and three stories

I'm not much for talking about my personal life on my writing communities . . . but I suppose a short introduction is necessary in such a small group. I discovered the community through our lovely maintainer in a post in another, much less personal, writing community. This community suits my need for freedom, I think. 

My name is Chasity -- though I go by the name Magory for my writing, which is a play off Gregory Maguire's name -- and I live in the Midwest of the United States. Like most people from that area of the world, I enjoy the outdoors and spend a lot of time in the summer at the beach or in the woods. Therefore, a lot of my writing gets done in the winter when it's too cold to be wandering around outside. Being seventeen, I'm at an awkward stage in my life as I am still living at home but on the edge of adulthood. Surprisingly . . . this hasn't came out much in my writing. No cheesy coming-of-age stories for me. 

Let's see . . . I have several outlets, though writing is the only one in which I possess any type of exceptional talent. I play the trombone and am in the process of learning how to play the violin. When my patience allows for it, I practice knitting. In theory, I'm learning how to do computer graphics, though that's a difficult art for someone who doesn't really have an eye for visual works. 

Writing and reading are probably givens, but I should probably comment on them so no one wonders what I'm doing here. I write a good deal of fanfiction and have recently broken into the field of original fiction. I'm pretty much a compulsive editor and I suppose I'd be willing to help the less bull-headed authors in this community. My works don't always pay attention to ratings and warnings . . . I assume that my readers are mature enough to handle it.

Now for some goodies!

He will either be their savior or their destroyer.

I look forward to getting to know all of you!


Just warning you I might take you up on the editing thing. All those stories look quite interesting, especially the first one.
Thank you. I take pride in my ideas. Now it's just a matter of getting them down on paper. Hehe.

No problem! I'll be sure to look for some of your stuff in the community. I love to edit as long as I'm getting through to someone.
