Disclaimer: There will be lots of quotes. I don't own them. I don't own the works this fic based on, either. This disclaimer is meant to cover the whole fic, so, this is over with.

[The following you don't have to read. It's completely irrelevant, but there is some background information that will either way be tackled in the story.]

Now. A brief introduction.

I will be doing my best to keep these chapters as long as possible, because I enjoy long chapters. So there's that.

A brief explanation.

Okay, so Gwen became a child star at 11, when she filmed the first of a Harry Potter-esque movie saga. She went on to a children network, protagonist of a fairly successful TV series. Grace dies in this universe, so Gwen and her siblings started living with Cara, her agent, when she was twelve. Now, Gwen's 16 and a half and free of movies and TV series ─so to assert her maturity, she does something stupid.

Sooo... Enjoy, and pleeeaase comment. I'd like to hear what you think. Also, don't flaaamee. I'll feel bad. Mmm. English isn't my first language, so, you know. Mercy? And I need a beta ─and if that beta would explain to me exactly what beta-ing entails, even better, because I get that they're supposed to edit but the how escapes me.

BOOK 1: Life is pain, Highness.

Anyone who says differently is selling something.

Gwen wakes up to a world of glaring fluorescent lights, stroboscopic throbs of pain and the taste of puke.

And the unquestionable knowledge that she just ruined everything.
