Chaser: October 26, 2015 - November 9, 2015
Once upon a time, I was plopped to Earth. Fast forward a few embarrassing and/or cute years, and you'll find me at age 11. Heart completely broken(how it actually happened is really lame). Anyway, I got into writing to "express myself." Now I just use it to escape the idiocy of reality. So...yeah. Hi. I'm Chaser.
Steggy: October 11, 2015 - October 26, 2015
My name is Steg, Steggy, Stegg or whatever you wish to call me. I adore dinosaurs with all my heart and my favorite (if you couldn't tell) is the Stegosaurus. If you ever want to hear me ramble about dinosaurs, message me! I don't bite.
I haven't been here for that long (only two years but it feels slightly longer D: ) I enjoy being lonely with my two cats (Hermes and Miso), going outside only for a few minutes, and school (which many find surprising; maybe that's why I want to be a teacher lol). Also, I'm a Scorpio if it matters.
TheSilverFox: September 24, 2015 - October 11, 2015
I'm an eager, audacious writer who is happy to have finally found a place for talented, educated, and intelligent people who share my interests. My passion is to write, and I'm usually found throughout the day, in some shape or form, writing. I've composed several essays that have been published, worked on a written history of my family genealogy, and done a million other things, whether on my own accord or that of a school's, that can be considered as writing. The particular genres and topics of my writing vary, though I prefer to craft
excessively long short stories and I sometimes even try to write a novel, although I always lose motivation and end up abandoning the project. I also like to dabble with poetry, though my ability to craft skillful poetry is lacking (although I have been getting better over time). Furthermore, my reading interests also vary, though I'm bound to read about anything, from Sherlock Holmes novels to the Sunday comics, so as long as it suits my tastes. Beyond that, I'm mostly incredibly picky about my personal info, so you'll probably never hear about anything in my personal life other than what I've compiled here, and the occasional tidbits that don't exactly coincide with the deeply personal details, like my age, the state in which I live, and the like. Finally, my writing style is detail-obsessive, with long sentences found throughout much of what I write, only occasionally broken up by a small one. If you prefer such works, then I suppose I'm the person for you; otherwise, feel free to hate me for my sheer inability to write anything short and simple. In conclusion, I'm happy to be on the Young Writer's Society, and I hope to stay and develop my writing talents here for years to come.
Oh, and as you can tell from my avatar (provided by the master moderator Lumi himself), I'm a big Pokémon fan. I guess that's what three years of playing the games does for you, eh? And, as you can imagine, I like to write some fan-fiction stories every now and then, though this is largely depending on my personal tastes and whether or not I have inspiration. However, recently, I have largely abandoned most fan-fiction pursuits in favor of some of my more original works. This is not because of any disliking, on my part, fan fiction - I still enjoy composing fan fiction every now and then, and you can find me doing so in the YWS's PMD Storybook (which I will not explain here; you can probably find it yourself, especially given its prominence in the SB forums).
I suppose that topic, not to mention the concept of the biography section itself, probably leads me to my explanation for my username. I thought of the idea of the name I use now because it represents a few aspects of my personality (and also because it was almost time for me to go to sleep when I was creating my account, and I had to come up with something quick. However, for the sake of not sounding like a loser, I'll going to discuss the other reason. ). First and foremost, I'm clever, witty, intelligent, and like to display that in my writing, or sometimes in public, especially during a debate or in a conversation. I play the piano, I'm learning how to speak Spanish fluently, and I'm a friendly, well-meaning person. Thus, especially given the connotations and aspects commonly associated with a fox, the last part of my username came rather quickly to me. Furthermore, the second part of my username also came to me based on some of my personality traits, as well as what I understand about silver. Silver is beautiful, shiny, and gleaming...up until the moment it tarnishes and becomes an hideous gray. That just about sums up my personality - usually optimistic and joyous, eager and creative, unless provoked otherwise. If I become provoked, I become a bit rage-filled (rageful should be a word. ), depressed, frustrated, temperamental, or experience some combination of those negative emotions. Don't worry, I'm not going to spew out my anger on you - I've spent about two years or so on another site around other people, and have managed to perfect my online etiquette. But I suppose I'm straying from the point. In all, that's why I came up with the name TheSilverFox.
In conclusion, that's a summary of me. If you haven't already died trying to read this, I congratulate you for your mettle. Now scat; you probably have better things to do than to listen to a fool's conversation about himself.
EDIT: Old and dead. Pretty much done with the site.
RagingLive: September 10, 2015 - September 24, 2015
If I were a building myself as a character I would start with the figure of the average American teen, with not so average ideas. You know, the one that when they get older says to another of their generation, "And we though that we had all the answers. Just look at them now!"
So maybe it turns out our ideas are average, but who cares. take Ted Geisel or Sir Arthur Conan Doyle for example. They're dead.
My character would also spend too much time reading, writing and wasting away at other small hobbies. Maybe one day she'll realize that it all pays off one way or another. Right now she's not too convinced.
My character tries hard to be optimistic and wants to be anything but loud and outspoken. Well, part of her wants to be, but she'd love to be soft and quiet, like the writer you normally think of.
She's for the most part daring, an old soul tugging at her existence. She loves the blue of the sky and wiener dogs. And horses. And cotton candy ice-cream.
Bet I had you going there for a while, huh?
roeckercody: August 11, 2015 - August 24, 2015
I am a 17 year old from Oregon who has a dream to publish many books in his lifetime. I love to read and write, and plan to major in either Creative Writing/Publishing/Editing and am super excited for that.
I am a Storyteller above all else, and want to make others fall in love with storytelling as much as I love it!

Que: June 10, 2015 - June 25, 2015
Hi, I'm Que! (previously Querencia, wayyyy previously Falconer)
I'm a second-year student at a liberal arts college double majoring in English and French Language Studies. I'm also a student of piano, and have been playing for eleven years. I enjoy the outdoors, and love to go hiking, backpacking, or just on long walks.
Also, somewhat randomly, I'm passionate about hats, puffins, Iceland, and Russian literature/culture.
I don't quite know where my life is headed yet, but I would love to do something with my love for reading and writing. In any case, I'm thoroughly enjoying the journey to wherever it is that I'm going.
I'm happy to talk with anyone about anything. <3

Holysocks: March 13, 2015 - April 2, 2015
I'm Holy, (generally pronounced "Holly")
I think I'm friendly enough, but please let me know if I ever offend you seeing as I don't ever plan or want that to happen. And feel free to talk to me! Just send me a PM or leave a message on my wall!
You'll hear me talk about a lot of things over and over again such as: Rapiers, Tesla, flaws with society, the ongoing war against bras, MBTI, boys, food, etc. You'll especially hear me talk about Canada a lot. It's boarder line obsessive. I also grew up on eighty acres so you'll hear me go off on rants about things related to that.
I'm just going to say a bit here because I'm editing this page because CRINGE. Now I don't know what to say.
I like getting to know new people probably more than anything in the world. But I sometimes find that exhausting, too. It's a confusing world.
I wonder how many people ACTUALLY read these things? I know I read some, but certainly not everyone's.
