Hello friends!

I apologize for the even more lack of activity than normal. I've just been so busy the past couple months. Here's all that's been happening...
    I graduated from community college a little over a month ago with an Associate of Arts degree; I officially got my degree in the mail just last week. I am definitely going to miss it a lot, that school was the best thing that had ever happened to me. But I know that I need to move on with the next chapter in my life.

    Currently I am working full time at the swimming pool that I've been at for the past four years. I'm really hoping that this will be my last year there. I applied for a part time job a couple weeks ago at one of the performing art centers in town to work in the ticket office. The deadline for people to put in applications was last Monday, so I'm going to give them one more week to call me for an interview. If they don't, then I will look elsewhere (I am really hoping though that they will call me...this is exactly the job that I'm wanting). I will be working full time until I get enough money to transfer to a four year school, which I'm hoping to be in Missouri for. I will then be going to a Bachelor of Arts in English.

    To make sure that I don't forget anything writing related that I learned while in college and to help better prepare myself for when I do go for an English degree, I'm going to be writing a couple of stories while I'm only just working. I do have a couple ideas in mind (including finishing Yami. Yes, remember that old thing? That story that was supposed to take place in the future that now takes place in the past? *shot*). One such idea that's floating around is a collab with :icontwilidragonrin:. We haven't officially decided on what we are going to do yet, but once we do, we're gonna get going on it pretty quickly, I'm sure! I'm also reading plenty of books to keep my mind going on ideas as to what to write about...and a couple games may help in some inspiration, too.

There's not really much else to say here...I've just been working for the most part. However, a new fandub should be coming soon and I'm going to be sitting down soon to learn a song from Sweeney Todd for a duet that another friend of mine wants to do with me. I will post a YouTube link to that cover when it is completed.

Talk to you all later!

Darkness…it’s the only thing I see. Not a single light in sight. Is this what death is like? Am I really dead? Shouldn’t I be in between Heaven’s gates and Hell’s flames? Shouldn’t there be Angels standing above to judge me for my sins?

I’m…alive? But how could that possibly be?

I see…because I was the furthest away from the gun, the other three people were practically my shield? There weren’t enough bullets inside to kill me?

Oh God, May. What about May? Is she okay?! One of the girls that was in the bed, damn it! She’s my best friend! My only friend! WHERE IS SHE?!

No, no, oh God, May…I’m so sorry. It shouldn’t have been you. Why did you have to die?! We never should’ve gone to that particular nightclub, we never should’ve got drunk the way we did, we never should’ve gone with that Harry guy.

It should’ve been me. You had a lot more to live for than I do. Your smile, your laugh, the way you just make everyone’s day. I don’t think I’ve ever seen you with a frown on your face. I didn’t even see terror from you when that woman with the gun came in the room. Me, I have nothing. I guess I just…go with whatever it is that life throws at me. But really, I have nothing going for me. You did though; you were the only one who had ever understood me.

Kitty, is that her name? And now she’s in jail for what she’s done? Good. That bitch deserves it. Who cares if she’s an heiress and that her father owns all of Hawaii? She heartlessly killed three people! No one deserves to die like that, even if Harry might’ve been cheating on her, not even he deserved to die. Not in that way.

May…I swear, I’ll make it up to you. I’m going to change. I’m going to make the most out of my life once I’m out of here. I want to be more like you; I’ve always envied you for always being so happy all the time and always knowing exactly what to do. The world needs more people like you…and I will be one of them. I will change my ways so you can rest in peace. I swear it. Thank you for everything…May.
The Aftermath-A CHICAGO After Story Monologue
Okay, so here's the story with this submission (and my last one)...
My college just recently finished a production of the musical, CHICAGO (and it was so wonderful and so much fun, by the way). My Acting III class only consists of seven people who were in the production. We were asked to write two monologues for our characters, one "before story" monologue and one "after story" monologue (which is what this monologue is).

If you're a bit confused as to what is even happening: My character, River, wakes up in a hospital bed (which I certainly hope you read my before story monologue first before coming to this one. If not, click on the link below and read that one before you start reading this one so you know why she's in the hospital!!). In the first paragraph, she is unconscious, then she wakes up, finds herself in the hospital, asks herself how she could possibly be alive, then she talks to a doctor, then to May (who is watching over her now), then to a doctor again, then back to May.

This monologue did not take me as long to write as my other one. Two hours, maybe? I was in a rush to write it so I could get it done on time for class. I don't think it's as good as my other one (for one thing, it's way too short. And for another thing, I think it was kinda all over the place, but I couldn't think of any other ways to modify it.), but I promised some people I would upload this.
But hey, at least it was super dramatic when I performed it in class.

Warning: May contain minor spoilers for the musical.
River and May belong to me.
Harry and Kitty belong to their original owner(s).
CHICAGO The Musical belongs to its original owner(s).

Isn’t it funny how someone can have something good happen to them as soon as they thought everything else could go wrong? It’s like fiction, like what they write in books. And honestly, I never thought it would happen to me, especially not this quickly.

I was hanging out at the nightclub with my best friend, May. I was in a horrible mood; my boyfriend had broken up with me. I was bawling my eyes out with a cigarette in my hand and ranting to her about how much of a son of a bitch he is. Then this drunk woman comes up to us, sees how sad I was, and tries to hand me her drink. May thought this was a wonderful idea and took the cigarette right out of my hand so I could take the drink. May and the drunken woman took me to the bar to buy me drinks and try to get me drunk myself.

By the time we do sit down at the bar, the tears are gone, but I’m still broken. I may be drowning my sorrows tonight, but I know that I will wake up sober and upset still in the morning. The drunken woman orders me another drink. As she does so, I notice May staring off into another direction and smiling. I look over to the direction that she is looking over at and see what she is seeing. A tall man with big brown eyes, fair skin, and black hair. The man looks over toward our direction and smiles.

I look away and concentrate on the drinks in front of me. I don’t want anything to do with another guy right now. May shakes my shoulder. “He’s coming, he’s coming this way!” She whispers in my ear. No, no, no, this can’t be happening right now!

Sure enough, I hear footsteps coming toward us. I then feel a hand on my shoulder. I look back; it’s him. Why did he come toward me? Lord, help me. “You look pretty upset. Mind if I join you?” He asks.

“Yes, of course you can!” May replies.

God damn it, May.

The man settles down in the seat next to me and smiles once again. “I’m Harry, by the way. What are your names?”

“I’m May, and this here is River!” May bursts out. The drunken woman’s words are so slurred together that I can’t understand her introducing herself. I don’t want anything to do with this, especially since I just dealt with one son of a bitch. Why am I in this situation right now?

Harry laughs and starts to stroke his fingers in my hair; I jump at the feeling. Is this man starting to get drunk, too?

He then starts talking. He gives his life story; May smiles and laughs along with him. Finally, after about an hour…he gets me to start talking about myself. My life story, my hobbies, my interests, funny stories about May…I’m smiling and laughing now. Maybe the alcohol is finally starting to take effect on me.

“Hey, why don’t you three come with me to my place? I have an apartment on the Northside. That way we can spend more…quality time together and it will be a lot quieter than it is here.”

We agree and Harry smiles again. Oh my God, that smile…Oh my God, the alcohol is really getting to me. But I can’t help it. He’s just so…handsome. Who was it that I was talking about to May earlier? I don’t even remember now.

Twenty minutes later, we arrive at Harry’s apartment and climb up the stairs to the third floor. It is a fancy apartment with expensive vases, paintings, and other antiques surrounding all of the rooms. He gestures us to the bedroom. Blindly, we follow him. I may be drunk, but I am aware of what he is going to do. But I still can’t help it. Something inside is telling me to trust him.

He takes off his shirt and walks toward me. His eyes are so…so beautiful. Harry lifts my chin and kisses me. I can’t breathe, but I kiss him back. I missed this feeling. It feels so…so good. He pulls back for a second to pull off my shirt and I let him; we kiss again for a few more minutes. Harry smiles again and takes me to the bed. “You look tired,” he says in a gentle voice. “Here, lay down for a little while.” I smile and nod, then a few minutes later doze off to sleep.

I don’t know how long I have been asleep for. The first thing I hear is another woman’s voice, “Oh Harry…” Is all she says. I feel three other bodies shift around to get up and decide that I should as well. Harry, May, and the drunken woman are all in the bed, Harry next to me. How did he get all four of us to fit on this one bed? “Okay, are you going to believe what you see or what I tell you?” I hear Harry ask this new woman. Who is she?

“What I see!” She yells out. It’s then that I notice a machine gun in her hands. She aims at us. Oh God…oh God, I’m going to die!

The woman shoots. I feel bullets enter my body, then extreme pain. I land back onto the bed and I feel Harry land on top of me. Harry’s lifeless body. My breath is taken away again. Where have I gone wrong? Am I really going to die here? I ask myself these questions as my vision blackens and I fade away.
Harry-A CHICAGO Monologue of Connection
My first monologue. The first time I have wrote in first person in YEARS.

Okay, so here's the story with this submission (and soon to be my next one)...
My college just recently finished a production of the musical, CHICAGO (and it was so wonderful and so much fun, by the way). My Acting III class only consists of seven people who were in the production. We were asked to write two monologues for our characters, one "before story" monologue (which is what this monologue is) and one "after story" monologue.

This thing took me two months to write because I was struggling so much with several factors...
1. Which character do I use for said monologues? (I was in the company, so I played like five different kinds of people.) (Our Roxie suggested that I combined two of my people into one person.)
2. What could possibly happen?
3. I have a beginning and an end, but no middle.
4. What kind of character could Harry even be, considering that he only has one line in the whole show?
5. OH MY GOD I CAN'T WRITE IN FIRST PERSON, HOW DO FAMOUS AUTHORS WRITE IN FIRST PERSON SO WELL?!?! ASDOFHOASIDHFSAIFHOSAIHFSADHFOASDIH

But...after two months of struggling so much, this is the final result of my first monologue. I'm going to be writing my second monologue really, really, really soon. So keep an eye out!

Warning: May contain minor spoilers for the musical.
River and May belong to me.
The drunken woman belongs to one of my classmates.
Harry and Kitty (The woman with the machine gun) belong to their original owner(s).
CHICAGO The Musical belongs to its original owner(s).

I think it's time that I updated this 'about me' section. It's been way too long since I have.

First off, you may simply call me either Stevie, Oath, or Sonic.

I am a sophomore in college. Although I'm currently working on my general subjects at a community college, I would like to transfer to a four year university and be able to continue my love for music as a career. I have been involved in music ever since I blew my first note into my clarinet in 2005. I have been in band for nine years while I have only been in choir for eight. I take pride as an alto, though there are times where I wish I was a soprano so I could perform certain songs without any trouble of hitting any of the higher notes.

I am an amateur voice actress. I have been voice acting since June of 2009 and it is my dream to move down to Dallas, Texas to start voicing for FUNimation and become a professional. Currently I voice in Super Smash Bros. Brawl machinimas. You may refer to this journal to see what all I have voiced in throughout the years.

I've become more of a bookworm throughout the years. My favorite genres are fantasy and sci-fi, although sometimes I like to take a break from them and read a book or two in the regular teen fiction genre. My favorite trilogy is the Shiver series by Maggie Stiefvater.

There isn't really much else to say about me. I'm a musician, a voice actress, and a geek, basically. I hope you enjoy what all I have to offer here on DA~

Current Residence: Small college town in Eastern Iowa
Favourite genre of music: Rock and soundtrack
Favourite style of art: Photography, literature
Operating System: Windows 7
MP3 player of choice: Droid Razr Maxx HD
Wallpaper of choice: anime stuff
Skin of choice: purple
Favourite cartoon character: Sakura Haruno (she represents me the most)
Personal Quote: "I'm going to succeed because I'm crazy enough to think I can."
