Valkyria: November 7, 2020 - Present
I was born in Queens, New York, but I moved to a different state five years ago. New York will always be my home though.
My favorite author is Neil Gaimon. I started writing when I was thirteen. My style's changed over the years, but now it is inspired by Gaimon's books. I hope to publish my stories one day.
IcyFlame: October 23, 2020 - November 7, 2020
I joined this site 10 years ago hoping for a place to post my writing (which at the time of course I thought was wonderful, but now can't bear to reread). I thought maybe I'd get a comment or two and it would spur me on to writing further chapters but boy, I got so much more.
This little community in our shared corner of the internet means so much to me and is why even after some extended breaks (4 years for uni!) I will always come back <3
Vil: October 8, 2020 - October 23, 2020
Oh well. I knew I couldn't hide for long.
There are just a few things you need to know about me...
- I am 100% taken
- It is unwise to disturb me when I am writing
- I have written one book, America Gone
- I am currently working on several books
- I can be found in the YWS Trading Post and keep cheap, negotiable prices
- I love music
- I will add to this list over time
My (online) name is Vilnius, but almost everyone I know calls me Vil or VP.
Most of my books center around or involve politics of some kind, and I am always ready to dive into real and fictional politics.
I was the Featured Member from October 8 to October 23.

Buranko: September 22, 2020 - October 8, 2020
Hi there random person reading this. I am Buranko and this is something about who I am and how I behave.
I am a huge poetry fan, but prose isn't something i hate at all. My first love was prose after all, and it's still there. However poetry is just that thing that is missing from a novel, essay, article etc. It's the deep insight in one certain idea and the freedom to believe whatever your mind can comprehend. Poems just have that feeling around them that allows you as a reader to use the guidelines given to you and create your own images.
That is what I aim to achieve when reviewing a poem. I don't really care about the mechanical stuff like punctuation, grammar, even though I know they are pretty important. Instead I focus on the message and effect it has on my own thinking. I filter the poem through the prysm of my own thinking.
Then I try to express as accurately as possible what I felt during the reading of that specific poem and what I would think the meaning would be. I would love if the author would reply to my review and tell me if I am close to the original idea and if I approached his point of view.
Other than that I joined this site as a mean to write daily poetry, to finally give some meaning to my lazing around. I am a massive league of legends fan and minecraft too.
WaterSpout: September 7, 2020 - September 22, 2020
Well, I was born in Dallas, TX. I live in the same neighborhood for as long as I can remember, so I have a pretty deep connection to it and the city in general. That's where I also keep buying Hot Wheels at the local Walmart. I fell in love with reading and writing when I found out what you can do and create. But yeah, I write.
Writing is the physical form of your creativity.
I experimented with all sorts of genres, which I found that I like reading a lot of them, though I'm picky with which one I choose to write based on. Then, I started to get into cars HEAVILY. Well, I've been liking cars since I was a little kid, which grew into a love and passion after. I am still a pretty new car enthusiast, though.
VioletFantasy: August 21, 2020 - September 7, 2020
Hello friends! I am so fortunate to have stumbled upon this website. I can’t wait to use it! I am a high school student who plans on incorporating writing into my occupation once I am older. For now, I am trying to learn as much as I can about the art of writing.
starlitmind: August 6, 2020 - August 21, 2020
Hello! I'm starlitmind, but you can call me Star!
My favourite thing to write is poetry. I'm obsessed with celestial/star themes (
probably too much though).
I love reading, and my favourite genre is historical fiction.
I also love creating art, more specifically painting, sketching, and mandalas/zentangles.
Piano is also a big part of my life. I've been playing since the second grade and joined my school's orchestra in fourth grade. My favourite composers are Chopin, Liszt, and Debussy. I try
and fail at practicing forty hours a day, probably because Twoset videos keep me busy cx
I love the sound of rain and thunderstorms, unicorns, and lighting candles. My favourite season is autumn. I overthink just about everything. I also love watching K-dramas, probably a little too much! My favourites are Goblin, Extraordinary You, Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-Joo, and It's Okay to Not Be Okay.
I want to attend medical school and keep piano and writing in my life. I'm a good listener if anyone needs to talk <3
I post my art over here! star's art

TheCursedCat: July 22, 2020 - August 6, 2020
ShapeOfVoid: July 4, 2020 - July 22, 2020
Hi guys! I go by ShapeOfVoid on the site, but y'all can call me Sov.
(Until recently, I used to be hiraeth)
Things about me:
I'm left handed (maybe more accurately mixed handed, but i attribute that to years of being forced -as a kid- to eat with my right hand, hold the bat with my right, etc etc)
I have a twin (we don't look identical, and our personalities are completely different)(although we do always seem to know what the other is thinking)(sometimes we say the same thing at the same time in the same way and that is a very twin-ish thing to do, but I swear we're as different as night and day.)
(lets skip the part where i say i love reading because literally everyone here does )
My current top songs include anything by Novo Amor.
Talk to me about Carry On (Rowell). And Wayward son. And ari and dante. And rwrb.
AND DRARRY And pjo. And cricket.
HarryHardy: June 19, 2020 - July 4, 2020
Hello! It's Harry Hardy. The Prince of Darkness.
I've been writing stuff since I was around twelve. I recently thought it was time to start sharing it to the world because I wanted to know what the people out there think. I'm hoping I can one day get some of these crazy things published.
I mostly write because otherwise my mind would be far too cluttered to function. I have far too many ideas than is healthy so I have to write them down.

Hkumar: May 20, 2020 - June 4, 2020
Hi fellow user <3 Thanks for stopping by. But sorry I was too lazy to write an About for myself and I guess that gives you some hint about me. XD
whatchamacallit: May 5, 2020 - May 20, 2020
I'm whatchamacallit, but you can also call me whatcha! (Capitalization is very important, so please note that I will not answer to Whatcha. *shudder*)
I love writing and reviewing poetry here on YWS! If you have a poem (or any other literary work) you'd like me to review, you can drop by whatcha's reviews.
I think you can sum me up pretty well by how unrelated the two career paths I want to pursue are: classical musician in an orchestra, or pathologist.
Some of my absolute favourite books include The Evolution of Calpurnia Tate, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children, and And Then There Were None.
Other than that, my PMs are always open if you want to chat!
Hope to see you around!
Elfboy: April 20, 2020 - May 5, 2020
I'm Ethan. I'm elfish. I write poems and speculative fiction. I'm training to be a graphic designer. I make a lot of tabletop games, some of which are actually fun. I ruin a lot of pancakes. I have ADHD and bipolar disorder. I write terrible biographies filled with short, bland, and somewhat personalityless sentences.
Necromancer14: April 4, 2020 - April 20, 2020
I play several instruments, and I like videogames. (Mostly clash of clans) I also like writing, in case you didn't know. I also like reading, probably even more than writing.
I have no idea what else to write, as I've never written a Biography before...
Oh, yeah. I'm secretly a jedi. Don't tell anybody.
