Hi, my name is Amanda and I'm 16! I like to read mysteries, fantasies, and anything else that catches my eye. My friend Oscar introduced me to this site, and it looks really interesting, I can;t wait to start putting some of my writings into the website!

If anyone is wondering, my boyfriend's internet is the absolute worst piece of shit in existence, and it causes my computer to slow down significantly anytime I enter the Chatroom. It also causes the chatroom to freeze anyway, so it's a bit futile to attempt to log in while I'm at his place.

Hey Amanda! I'm Andrew. Welcome to YWO!

If Oscar says you belong here, than you probably do. He's a great guy.

Hi Amanda, I'm Alex, 15 and love long walks on the beach... marry me?

ahahaha thats what we call at YWO ((or in my mind)) sketchy. I'm just kidding, but if you do want to marry the site as a whole, I beleive its available for the taking, but you might have to buy it dinner first.

Ok I'll stop with the non-funny jokes and give you a proper introduction.

This site is like an oyster, ready for you to do the disgusting shucking... wait... that didn't sound appealing. Well I hope you get the idea, I can't wait to read some of the stuff you write and remember... Critique and if you don't someone will eat you =]]]

Alex, how many times have I told you to quit threatening the newbies with cannibalism?

Anyhoo, hi Amanda, I'm Sarah, and if the above exchange hasn't frightened you off I think we'll get along just great.

Thanks for saying hi to me Nyx and Quietus, hope we can get to know each other better! Andy thanks for the introducing yourself! Oscar is a pretty good guy; I have known him since the 7th grade and weíve been best friends ever since!!!

I'm just giving her fair warning Sarah, I mean, I know how you like to sneak up on them and eat them in their sleep.

Oh we will get along fine Amanda, because if not then *glares at his blade*. OH! That thing?! That things nothing, I don't even sharpen it 4 times a day or anything *shifty eyes*

Sorry about that Amanda, I'm hyper today and I can't, for the life of me, figure out why. =]]]

I was serious about the enjoy yourself thing, and I hope nothing I've said has spoiled your appetite for this oyster of a site. DAMNIT! There I go with the oyster metaphor again... THIS IS INSPIRATION *goes off to write poem about how YWO is an oyster*

This is going to be really bad =]]]
