*There are no perfect people in this story; no villains, no perfect protagonists and no fairytale romance. There is, however, realistic examples of neurodivergence, discovering yourself, LGBTQIA characters and nuanced depictions of mental health problems, self harm, religious and generational trauma.*
"My name is Faith Elizabeth Samuels. Well, it used to be, before I left my fundamentalist helicopter parents and started going by Luna... My counselor tells me writing will help me to 'heal'. Somehow, writing my feelings of depression, anxiety, self harm and suicidal thoughts will negate a lifetime of 'bad feelings' about my self image, mental health and general well-being. Sounds legit. So, fair reader, does my little tale of woe intrigue you? If so, come join my merry band of misfits on this roller coaster of life."
A -sometimes- uplifting story about growing up and overcoming life's challenges. Laugh, cry and smile with our cynical author as she tries to traverse the scary life of after high school while battling her inner demons and conquering the ever-terrifying world of adulting.
Rated Mature (13+) For themes of self-harm, depression, anxiety and some sexuality.
|7X FEATURED · SPOLIGHT STORY|
Saddened by her lonely life, a little girl named Victoria Christie uses her inventive imagination to write stories. Now that she's an older individual, she must find a way to share her tale with the world.
Victoria Christie never expected to be a writer, but everything changed in 4th grade when she annoyed her mother at a barber shop. She told Victoria to write in her school notebook, which sparked her daughter's life-long passion for writing.
Now, many years later, Victoria is eager to share her story-through an interactive novel that showcases how her writing has changed overtime and what hardships she faced in order to keep her island of personality-especially after her brother's unfortunate death in 2021.
With the power of writing and her brother's legacy about her becoming a successful author, will Victoria's old stories spark the interest of an audience? Will they interact with her and tell her how her incomplete pieces should end, or will Victoria forever remain an undiscovered author?
This is an anthology of my old stories. Most are incomplete, so it's up to my audience to decide how they should end. This is the story of how I became Viktoria Fyodorova.

I wanted helpbut now that I have itit is a lot harder than expected.To the pointthat I don't want any help anymore.
(Or maybe we have all been told all the wrong things about getting help.)
Rose has had anxiety for what has felt like her whole life (considering that she was diagnosed when she was in kindergarten it was partially her whole life) and now it was really starting to catch up to her. Now at the age of 14, she can't leave the house. Why? you may be asking. Well, if she does go outside she HAS to be by one of her parent's side. So, she can't bring herself to go to school or go really anywhere. She has known for a while that she needed help but it wasn't until she couldn't bring herself to leave the house that her parents started getting concerned about helping her with it. Come with her on her journey going through the mental health field and navigating the new life it brings with it through poetry.
How I got the idea: I've been writing this for a few days, on and off, kind of a fantasy of how my life is going to look like (unless I'm not as stupid as the protagonist, but I'm afraid I am). Still keep in mind if there are any offensive statements, that's what he thinks, and part of the character. Don't blame me. Will probably contain violence and sex scenes later, not yet though so I might change the rating. Also there will be a lot of drinking because I like to drink. Here's your summary:
Rick's name isn't really Rick but it's the first one that came to his mind when he met Heather at the bar a few months ago after running from another failed relationship. Heather is a close friend of Sarah, and Sarah is who Rick believes to be the love of his life. But now their tumultous short-lived romance is in shambles after Rick's deepest, most well-kept secret is revealed. He is in fact a girl, or rather, a not-yet-transitioned transsexual (female to male) but refuses to admit to himself that running from himself and lying to his friends is not the right way.
After a failed attempt at picking up the shards, it's time for a new name, a new place, a new girl. But he can't run forever. His past is catching up to him. And while he's determined to make it work this time, he knows himself he can't keep starting over as many times as he wants. When it all comes crushing down on him again, he has to make a decision.
1) NAKED - "Free" is the word. It's like, imagine you're born in jail, so you're used to it - you've never known anything else. You feel sort of not perfect, but it's life, so... But then one day you get let out - you get freed. And you go out of the prison gates and, wow, there's the world, and you feel a feeling that you've never felt before. Never even dreamed of feeling, really. A brand new feeling - feeling free. Well, that's what naked in the woods feels like, so think about it." ---------------------------Join six 16 year-old high school friends in a summer of discovery. They grew close by swimming together in a forest stream, but now adventures with sex, booze, relationships and identity threaten to split them up.
Okay okay this will suck but it is an idea to start off this story that has been in my head for a few months now. I have no beggining, barley a middle and no end. Would you like to join me on the jorney and find out what this wack story is about!?

"In this book, I have written, I have utilized what it is like to be a teenager in this day in age, being a teenager in the present myself. I have brushed on the topics of being part of the LGBTQIA+ community and delved into depth about mental health issues faced by teenagers in the 21st century. Few experiences are inspired by stories and experiences I have listened to, or faced myself. In this book, the character name Michael, was inspired by my late uncle who unfortunately died in an accident before I was born in 2002. While writing this book, my Grandma, unfortunately, passed away suddenly in June 2022. Although I have never faced discrimination regarding race, besides the few times people have made stereotyped comments about Russian people (I am of Russian heritage). I haven't touched on this that much because I don't know what is myself to be discriminated against daily, unlike many People of Color in Australia.

The book name has been from 'Premonitions', as it is a very popular name and hard to find.
When he was a teenager, Blaine Conner had a DNA sample taken from him during a routine procedure. Life progressed fairly normally for him in the small town of Glory after that, but when Blaine turned 31, he received the shock of his life when authorities turned up on his doorstep with a two-month-old baby boy. His mother had died recently, and she'd named Blaine as the boy's next of kin.
The boy was his identical genetic twin, Blaze Conner.
Now Blaine has to navigate life as a single father, while hundreds of questions mill around in his brain. Why was a clone made? And why was henamed the boy's next of kin?
Inspired by catcher in the rye and other books.
Jared has been kicked out of another school in a seemingly countless row and his new one doesn't seem any better than all the others he's been to. But probably due to an unexpectedly good mood in the first few days and weeks, he makes friends, falls in love with the girl that looks too perfect to be made up, and he feels like this may be the first time he really cares about anything. But soon they all start getting in trouble when he pulls them down into his dark-ish world of reckless pleasure seeking, borderline criminality and self-destructive behaviour.
He's going places he's never thought of before and slipping further into a lifestyle that will kill him, threatening to be expelled again but this time is the first time he has motivation not to. So he's facing a decision that's the hardest he's ever had to make.
