Bio:
See you later, alligators.

I haven't had anything but a spam review in months. I think it's time to stop beating this dead horse. You'll be able to read the stuff I already posted here (I don't want to leave empty categories behind), but nothing new is going to be posted to Ghosts of the Vanguard.

If you want to see new stuff, you can find me at all the old haunts:

~ Straw on Lunaescence Archives
~ StrawChan on Quotev
~ TehStraw on DeviantArt

And from 3/17/16, you'll be able to find me on AO3, hopefully under the same name.

It's been real (short). Catch you on the flip side.

Summary: So you want to survive the Cordyceps apocalypse? Yeah, well, join the club. That's easier said than done, and that's when everything is going your way. Throw in losing your arm and getting dragged off to "civilization" by a sarcastic teenager and her guardian, and you'll be lucky to last the week.

Still think you've got what it takes? Here's a list of rules for if you ever wind up in that situation. You might want to make sure to memorize them. They might not save your life, but at least they'll keep you out of hell a little longer.

Summary: It was supposed to be a standard Vegas trip: drinking, gambling, a night out on the town with your best friend, Jane. A bit too much of the first, though, has you pass out—through your entire wedding! Waking up to find yourself married to your best friend’s boyfriend? Not that great. Even worse? He’s not from Earth, not by a long shot. Worse still? They don’t believe in divorce in his Realm and you never wanted to be a princess.
