If you follow my Tumblr and have perused my personal posts at any recent point, you probably already know this. If not, though, I thought people here might want to know about why things are so slow in coming anyway.

Most of it is because I flat out burnt myself out this past semester of graduate school, then I thought I had to take more graduate school, and then it turned out I didn't and I had to rush to drop my one course. Most of that, however, was done by the end of August. Since then, I have
  • Attended a weekend writing conference in Colorado
  • Caught a terrible round of bronchitis which I only just went to the doctor for this weekend for medicine
  • Started a full-time job.
The job is the big part, although the month long illness certainly hasn't helped. I don't get any breaks at work outside of thirty minutes for lunch, so managing my writing is hard. Hopefully once I'm totally over this bronchitis I won't feel like going to bed as soon as I get home and I'll get back to it. Right now, I am about 2000 words into the next chapter of "(Don't) Hold Your Breath."

If you're ever curious about where I am in writing something, please check out the Fic Update Schedule on my blog.

Hey howdy ho, random internet denizen!

My name is Straw. I’m twenty-three years old. As of May 2014, I have completed the requirements for my MA in English and will receive my degree in December 2014. I received my BA in English and Creative Writing in May 2012. Currently, I live with my parents and younger brother in Texas, working full time and I’m saving money up as best I can so I can move out into a small house this winter. Hopefully my platonic soul mate of several years will be coming along. My goal is to work for a publishing company in Portland, Oregon. The color green! Rain! Coffee! Or working with Marvel would be good, too, but do I dare to dream?

I’m feminist and Christian (nondenominational). I’ve also been a vegetarian my entire life! My sexuality is really of no importance to me, so it’s not really of importance to you either. I like who I like when I like and why I like them.

In my spare time, I like to write second person fan fiction, usually involving the Avengers fandom, though I do dabble in Star Trek, The Last of Us, and James Bond on occasion. I also love to read, worry over my goldfish (Ken, Chikusa, Loki, and Clint), watch movie reviews, talk to my internet buddies, and eat burritos.

If you ever have any questions or comments, or simply wish to strike up a conversation, please feel free to leave a comment on my profile. You can also send me an ask on my Tumblr ( Usually I have anonymous on, so don't worry if you don't have an account.

I also post my fan fictions to Quotev (as Straw/Strawchan), Ghosts of the Vanguard (as Straw), and Lunaescence (as Straw). If you ever see my stuff on any other website, that's not me. Please report them for stealing, and let me know so that I may as well.

Happy Birthday!!

Hey Straw, Since you're birthday is coming up I was going to write you a oneshot.
However, while looking through some of your old character Bios I can't seem to find the one i was looking for, your OC from KHR first gen. I still remember a great deal about her, she was a pickpoket who became a master their, ended up getting on well with the Vongolla and ended up stealing their rings only to get horribly burned when she tried to retreive them from a fire after realizing the error of her ways.
The only thing i can't remember is her name (an quite possibly her hair and eye colour).

Could you please email me a copy of her bio so I can make a start on it for you?

I don't think I actually have a bio for her. I was going to rework here before I lost interest in KHR!. But I do know who you're talking about: Carabella. She had green eyes, if that helps at all. It sounds like you have about everything else down. But if you need anything else, just let me know! I'll be on and off for most of the day.

Okay, did she have brown hair or was it another colour?
TehStraw Featured By Owner May 25, 2014  Student Writer
She was a redhead, actually. :x Sorry, I should have said that earlier.
