Why hello random person who just happened to stumble upon my profile!

My name's Arrow, but as a guest I was known as Mrs. Moonlark! So wassup? How's life?

*crickets chirp in the background*

Ooooookay then...




Welcome welcome welcome hi hello hey there take a seat and listen up.

I hope you're all doing alright, but not a lot of people have been because of the coronavirus(COVET-19). Social distancing has gotten very extreme as the virus has spread and schools, jobs, and large gatherings have been shut down.

Please pray for the people involved with this virus outbreak, we're all in this together. :)

~About me~


So I really like Keeper of the Lost Cities, Percy Jackson and the Olympians/Heroes of Olumpus/ANYTHING BY RICK TROLL RIORDAN, and Harry Potter.

These are my babies. If you insult my fandoms, well...*says in uncanny undertone* I get to have some fun.

Some of my hobbies include acting, reading, sometimes writing, and photography. I'm also just started learning the guitar!

Randomness: I hate cereal. I have an abnormal obsession with dark chocolate. I love coffee. I have no love life(other than with coffee). I'm a stalker. Ummmm...that all I can think of for now. XD

~My stories~

Sing Me To Sleep: A Sophitz Oneshot : Not gonna spoil a lot of it. All I'm gonna say is that there is death. Lots of death. I originally didn't want for it to be Sophitz, because I am a Sokeefe shipper ALL the way. However, in spite of that, the tiny part of me that shipped Sophitz before we met Dex came out and took over my hand, and this happened. Because it was originally a Sokeefe fanfic, I'll probably do a Sokeefe version. Just keep and eye out for that. ;)

General: I just had this big old burst of inspiration and was like "eh. what the heck?" Its a PJO fanfic, and I will try to be doing monthly updates(AT MINIMUM). If I finish a chapter early then I will post it.

Ok here's the summary: General Annabeth Chase has been running from the past all her life. She became the General of Minerva Facilities, a group that has taken over half New York. But when Annabeth finally comes face to face with her past, will she keep running? Or will she finally become the thing she hates the most? (Rated T because Im paranoid XD)

cHaPtEr 3 iS oUt bEcAuSE iM nOT gOiNg iNsAnE oF cORonA.

Lost Girl: Okay so this one's about our classic boy Peter Pan, and it's from the perspective of my very own character, Parker. Chapter 2 is in progress, and will hopefully be done soon.

Here's the summary: Parker has lived in Neverland all of her life with the Lost. But something about Peter is different. He's not the funny, go-lucky guy any more. And when he is kidnapped, Parker may be the only one who can save him.

Check it out!


the monster inside: This is a very angsty poem about Annabeth Chase. It's definitely not the best, but i can't stop you from checking it out. :P

How to Maintain a Healthy Level of Insanity

2. Page yourself over The Intercom. Don't disguise your voice.

3. Every time someone asks you to do something, ask if they want fries with that.

4. When caught sleeping at school/work/wherever you are not supposed to be sleeping, and you are woken up, shout, "AMEN!"

5. Put Decaf in the coffee maker for 3 weeks. Once everyone has gotten over their caffeine addictions, switch to espresso.

6. In the Memo Field of all your checks, write for unicorns

7. Finish All Your sentences with 'In Accordance With the Prophecy'.

9. Skip down the hall rather than walk, and see how many looks you get.

15. Five Days in advance, tell your friends you can't attend their party because you have a headache.

17. When the money comes out the ATM, scream 'I Won! I Won!'

18. When leaving the zoo, start running towards the parking lot, yelling 'Run for your lives! They're loose!'

19. Tell your children over dinner, 'Due to the Economy, We Are Going to Have to Let One of You Go.'

20. And the Final Way to Keep A Healthy Level Of Insanity: Post this on your profile!

While on the subject of insanity at work...

Two factory workers were talking. "I know how to get some time off from work." said the man.

"How do you think you will do that?" said the other one. He proceeded to show her...by climbing up to the rafters, and hanging upside down.

The boss walked in, saw the worker hanging from the ceiling, and asked him what on earth he was doing? "I'm a light bulb" answered the guy.

"I think you need some time off," said the boss. So, the man jumped down and walked out of the factory. The second worker began walking out too. The boss asked her where did she think she was going?

"Home. I can't work in the dark."

Me: i like reading books because they're relaxing.

Me: *screams at book*

Me: *throws book against wall*

Me: *cries about characters for days on end*

Me: *pulls all-nighter to finish book and gets to school late*

Me: so relaxing

Dear bullies,

See that girl you just called fat? She is starving herself. You know that girl you just called ugly? She spends hours putting on make-up hoping people will like her. That boy you just tripped? He is abused enough at home. See that old man you made fun of cause of the ugly scars? He fought for our country. See that young boy you just made fun of for always being sick? He has to walk home in the snow cause his family is too poor. That guy you just made fun of for crying? His mother is dying.

Re-Post this if you are against bullying. I bet many of you won't. Your life is probably not as harsh as theirs, or you're just too lazy. Take it as a challenge. You'd be surprised how many people this affects, positively and negatively. A few clicks of your mouse may just save a life, or bring a smile.

A 15-year-old girl holds hands with her 1-year-old son. People call her a slut, no one knows she was raped at 13. People call another guy fat. No one knows he has a serious disease causing him to be overweight. People call an old man ugly. No one knew he had a serious injury to his face while fighting for our country in the war. People call a woman bald but they don't know she has cancer. Put this in your profile if you are against bullying and stereotyping. I bet 95% of you won't do it

93 percent of American teens would have a severe emotional breakdown if someone called them a freak. If you're a part of the 7 percent who would ask the person, "What was your first clue?", copy this into your profile and add your name to the list: Sunlit Goddess of the C.O.C.A., Moonlit Goddess of the C.O.C.A., Evil Genius of the COCA, Invader Miley Phantom, dAnnYsGiRl777, BloodySalvation, Lady Lost-A-Lot,bellabookworm9, Bella Masen Cullen, Vampire Scooby, Alannaswarrior, SpottedLilly, Alleyanna Cullen, danceswithwings119, gottaluvtwilight, freexflyer, Green.Winged.Mistress, MoonStarWithWings, Yourcool79, MyNameIsCAB, Shatchi, Gabby510, twilightobsessedOECD, Aceraptor123, Person95,therealmax, FaXnEsSisADDICTION(kelsey), LE Trex, ImmaBeatYouWithaCrowbar, Just A million Rain Drops, Funnygina, RainonSaturn, Cynder2013, NarniaRoyalNavy123, RangerIthilwen, Ruby Silverstar, ArrowOfTheMoonlark

The many tips and facts of life...

When life gives you lemons...you throw them at people!!

Don't try to out-weird me. YOU WILL LOSE.

Always dream of a better world where chickens can cross the road without having there motives questioned.

Best friends are people who will kill each other over a bag of chips and not say sorry.

Yep. I've been to the dark side... They lied about the cookies.

BE A REBEL. Open the wrong side of the popcorn bag!

Never annoy a writer. She may put you in a book and kill you.

One does not simply walk into a shopping center. There is evil there that does not sleep.

Reality continues to ruin my life.

Good friends will say when a guy breaks your heart, "You deserved better". Best friends will be prank calling him at 1am making chicken noises.

Me? Sarcastic? Nooooo.

I'm the type of person who doesn't know why THEY start laughing, so I better laugh harder.

OK... so I'm a little crazy, but that's how we roll.

People that don't know me think I'm quiet. People that know me wish I was.

Why yes, I do randomly use British accents.

Whoever said nothing is impossible never tried to slam a revolving door.

I WILL NOT be held responsible for any injuries you may sustain if you tickle me.

DEATH. Our nation's no.1 killer.


Stole the cookies from the cookie jar!!

Everything here is edible. Even I'm edible. But that, my dear children, is called cannibalism, and it is frowned upon in most societies. ~Willy Wonka

1. Thou shalt not post a fic until it has been checked for spelling and grammar errors. The Fanfiction gods hath given you a spellchecker on the computer for a reason.

2. Thou shalt not post a chapter of less than 100 words, unless it is a drabble. This displeases the masses.

3. Thou shalt not put Author's Notes in the middle of a story.

4. Thou shalt NEVER use text-speak in a story, unless the the characters are actually texting.

5. Thou shalt keep to one tense, and one only, throughout the story. Do not switch randomly.

6. Apply the above five to POV's as well.

7. Thou shalt not get offended when someone makes fun of the crack pairing in your story. It probably is quite funny.

8. Thou shalt not use ,;, or :( to show the emotion exhibited by the character.

9. Thou shalt try to keep characters in character!

10. Thou shalt not treat every criticism as a flame

11. The Authors Note is not a spot for personal drama, and thou shalt not make it so.

12. Thou shalt not put any form of the phrase 'first fic' in the summary.

13. Thy created characters must not have names exceeding five syllables in length. Nor shall thy name exceed five words in length.

14. Thou shalt not insert thyself into the story as a character- yes, we know that thy is in love with thyself but we don't need to read about how thy ends up with the main character.

15. If thou art writing a story that differs from the original plot line, thou shalt point it out in the beginning.

16. Thou shalt not make a person randomly smart or powerful unless stating a reason for the change (a good reason).

17. Thou shalt show not tell.

18. Thou shalt NEVER use the phrase 'I suck at summaries' in-est thine summary. This annoys thine readers.

19. Thou shalt not write the same way thou speak-est- writing is an art.

20. Thou shalt ALWAYS spell the word 'Okay', right. ' 'K' and 'Ok' are not acceptable compromises.

21. Thou shalt only use cliches when (a. thou art writing a parody and (b. find a new and interesting twist to make cliches bearable to thine readers.

22. Thou shalt always separate dialogue from two separate speakers in two separate paragraphs. Otherwise thine readers will be confused.


24. Thou shalt not write with thy caps lock on, it displeases the masses and causes thy readers to lose their vision and make angels weep.

25. Thou shalt know how to spell the character's names correctly before you writeth the story. Misspelling the name of the main characters makes readers angry and distracts from the story.

26. Thou shalt not say in thine summary "summary inside". This shows lack of creativeness and infuriates the masses. The only exception is when a summary is cut short and a continuation of it lies inside.

27. Thou shall use paragraphs and space the story so it is not terrifyingly daunting to thine readers.

My favorite song:

(A River Of Ink- now known as thesirensong -wrote this. i did not.)





~from A River Of Inks profile.

The synopsis was good,

and the cover looked nice,

you opened the book,

and began a new life.

You found a new home,

you met some new friends,

you kept on reading,

hoping it would never end.

You danced through the pages,

you sang out the words,

you felt all their pain,

all their joy and their hurt.

The pages cut your fingers, and the words cut your heart,

like the author had a knife, and was tearing you apart.

You laughed with the characters, and with them you cried,

you fell in love with them,

but with them you died.

And when the book reached its end, your broken heart couldn’t heal, you suddenly realized that

A teenage girl about 17 named Diane had gone to visit some friends one evening. Time passed quickly as each shared their various experiences of the past year.

She ended up staying longer than planned, and had to walk home alone. She wasn't afraid because it was a small town and she lived only a few blocks away.

As she walked along under the tall elm trees, Diane asked God to keep her safe from harm and danger.

When she reached the alley, which was a short cut to her house, she decided to take it.

However, halfway down the alley she noticed a man standing at the end as though he were waiting for her.

She became uneasy and began to pray, asking for God's protection.

Instantly a comforting feeling of quietness and security wrapped round her, she felt as though someone was walking with her.

When she reached the end of the alley, she walked right past the man and arrived home safely.

The following day, she read in the newspaper that a young girl had been raped in the same alley just twenty minutes after she had been there.

Feeling overwhelmed by this tragedy and the fact that it could have been her, she began to weep.

Thanking the Lord for her safety and to help this young woman, she decided to go to the police station.

She felt she could recognize the man, so she told them her story.

The police asked her if she would be willing to look at a lineup to see if she could identify him.

She agreed and immediately pointed out the man she had seen in the alley the night before.

When the man was told he had been identified, he immediately broke down and confessed.

The officer thanked Diane for her bravery and asked if there was anything they could do for her.

She asked if they would ask the man one question.

Diane was curious as to why he had not attacked her.

When the policeman asked him, he answered, "Because she wasn't alone. She had two tall men walking on either side of her."

Amazingly, whether you believe or not, you're never alone.

Did you know that 98% of teenagers will not stand up for God?

An atheist professor of philosophy asks one of his new students to stand.

"You're a Christian, aren't you, son?"

"Yes, sir," the student says.

"So you believe in God?"


"Is God good?"

"Sure! God's good."

"Is God all-powerful? Can God do anything?"


Now the professor asks, "Are you good or evil?"

"The Bible says I'm evil," replies the student.

The professor grins knowingly.

"Aha! The Bible!" He considers for a moment. "Here's one for you. Let's say there's a sick person over here and you can cure him. You can do it. Would you help him? Would you try?"

"Yes, sir, I would."

"So you're good…!"

"I wouldn't say that."

"But why not say that? You'd help a sick and maimed person if you could. Most of us would if we could. But God doesn't."

The student does not answer, so the professor continues. "He doesn't, does he? My brother was a Christian who died of cancer, even though he prayed to Jesus to heal him. How is this Jesus good? Hmmm? Can you answer that one?"

The student remains silent.

"No, you can't, can you?" the professor says. He takes a sip of water from a glass on his desk to give the student time to relax.

"Let's start again, young fella. Is God good?"

"Er… yes," the student says.

"Is Satan good?"

The student doesn't hesitate on this one. "No."

"Then where does Satan come from?"

The student falters. "From God," he answers after a few moments.

"That's right. God made Satan, didn't he? Tell me, son. Is there evil in this world?"

"Yes, sir."

"Evil's everywhere, isn't it? And God did make everything, correct?"


"So who created evil?" The professor continued, "If God created everything, then God created evil, since evil exists, and according to the principle that our works define who we are, then God is evil."

Again, the student has no answer. "Is there sickness? Immorality? Hatred? Ugliness? All these terrible things, do they exist in this world?"

The student squirms on his feet. "Yes."

"So who created them?"

The student does not answer again, so the professor repeats his question. "Who created them?" There is still no answer. Suddenly the lecturer breaks away to pace in front of the classroom. The class is mesmerized. "Tell me," he continues onto another student. "Do you believe in Jesus Christ, son?"

The student's voice betrays him and cracks. "Yes, professor, I do."

The old man stops pacing. "Science says you have five senses you use to identify and observe the world around you. Have you ever seen Jesus?"

"No, sir. I've never seen Him."

"Then tell us if you've ever heard your Jesus?"

"No, sir, I have not."

"Have you ever felt your Jesus, tasted your Jesus or smelt your Jesus? Have you ever had any sensory perception of Jesus Christ, or God for that matter?"

"No, sir, I'm afraid I haven't."

"Yet you still believe in him?"


"According to the rules of empirical, testable, demonstrable protocol, science says your God doesn't exist. What do you say to that, son?"

"Nothing," the student replies. "I only have my faith."

"Yes, faith," the professor repeats. "And that is the problem science has with God. There is no evidence, only faith."

The student stands quietly for a moment, before asking a question of his own. "Professor, is there such thing as heat?"

"Yes," the professor replies. "There's heat."

"And is there such a thing as cold?"

"Yes, son, there's cold too."

"No, sir, there isn't."

The professor turns to face the student, obviously interested. The room suddenly becomes very quiet. The student begins to explain. "You can have lots of heat, even more heat, super-heat, mega-heat, unlimited heat, white heat, a little heat or no heat, but we don't have anything called 'cold'. We can hit up to 458 degrees below zero, which is no heat, but we can't go any further after that. There is no such thing as cold; otherwise we would be able to go colder than the lowest, minus 458 degrees.

"Every body or object is susceptible to study when it has or transmits energy, and heat is what makes a body or matter have or transmit energy. Absolute zero (-458 F) is the total absence of heat. You see, sir, cold is only a word we use to describe the absence of heat. We cannot measure cold. Heat we can measure in thermal units because heat is energy. Cold is not the opposite of heat, sir, just the absence of it."

Silence across the room. A pen drops somewhere in the classroom, sounding like a hammer.

"What about darkness, professor? Is there such a thing as darkness?"

"Yes," the professor replies without hesitation. "What is night if it isn't darkness?"

"You're wrong again, sir. Darkness is not something; it is the absence of something. You can have low light, normal light, bright light, flashing light, but if you have no light constantly you have nothing and it's called darkness, isn't it? That's the meaning we use to define the word.

"In reality, darkness isn't. If it were, you would be able to make darkness darker, wouldn't you?"

The professor begins to smile at the student in front of him. This will be a good semester. "So what point are you making, young man?"

"Yes, professor. My point is, your philosophical premise is flawed to start with, and so your conclusion must also be flawed."

The professor's face cannot hide his surprise this time. "Flawed? Can you explain how?"

"You are working on the premise of duality," the student explains. "You argue that there is life and then there's death; a good God and a bad God. You are viewing the concept of God as something finite, something we can measure.

"Sir, science can't explain a thought. It uses electricity and magnetism, but has never seen, much less fully understood either one. To view death as the opposite of life is to be ignorant of the fact that death cannot exist as a substantive thing. Death is not the opposite of life, just the absence of it.

"Now tell me, professor. Do you teach your students that they evolved from monkeys?"

"If you are referring to the natural evolutionary process, young man, yes, of course I do."

"Have you ever observed evolution with your own eyes, sir?"

The professor begins to shake his head, still smiling, as he realizes where the argument is going. A very good semester, indeed.

"Since no one has ever observed the process of evolution at work and cannot even prove that this process is an ongoing endeavour, are you not teaching your opinion, sir? Are you now not a scientist, but a preacher?"

The class is in uproar. The student remains silent until the commotion has subsided.

"To continue the point you were making earlier to the other student, let me give you an example of what I mean."

The student looks around the room. "Is there anyone in the class who has ever seen the professor's brain?" The class breaks out into laughter.

"Is there anyone here who has ever heard the professor's brain, felt the professor's brain, touched or smelt the professor's brain? No one appears to have done so. So, according to the established rules of empirical, stable, demonstrable protocol, science says that you have no brain, with all due respect, sir.

"So if science says you have no brain, how can we trust your lectures, sir?"

Now the room is silent. The professor just stares at the student, his face unreadable.

Finally, after what seems an eternity, the old man answers. "I guess you'll have to take them on faith."

"Now, you accept that there is faith, and in fact, faith exists with life," the student continues. "Now, sir, is there such a thing as evil?"

Now uncertain, the professor responds, "Of course, there is. We see it every day. It is in the daily example of man's inhumanity to man. It is in the multitude of crime and violence everywhere in the world. These manifestations are nothing else but evil."

To this the student replied, "Evil does not exist, sir, or at least it does not exist unto itself. Evil is simply the absence of God. It is just like darkness and cold, a word that man has created to describe the absence of God. God did not create evil. Evil is the result of what happens when man does not have God's love present in his heart. It's like the cold that comes when there is no heat or the darkness that comes when there is no light."

The professor sat down.
