yes! okay so listen, please…marci eyre was once described to me as “college lesbian au mulder” and that is exactly who she is, only infinitely better. she definitely believes in aliens and especially alien spiders and she’s an aspiring journalist who wants to write breaking news stories about how the government has been hiding the truth about area 51 from us all along. she calls the aliens she discovered in the beginning of the movie “my aliens.” this google search was made by marci eyre

shes beautiful And she will not be crossed. this is the expression she makes when men speak to her

Landey Manor

From a post earlier today in which I was mentioned, my quaint little Superphantom story was mentioned. I decided that it’s probably about time to address the issue. See, a lot of people seem to like the fic, or at least the idea behind it. A lot of people except for me. I’m in a constant cycle of writing until I improve, which is a good thing, but then I look back at my old writing and cringe and I really don’t want to go near that, which is bad when I’ve put it online.

Official notification saying that I’m trying, but the writing is not happening nearly as fast as I want it to. Anybody is allowed to adopt either the story or the idea, please notify me, and if nobody wants to adopt, I have about half a chapter after like three months, so I guess patience is necessary.

Kay. That’s it. Later.
