Hey! What's up? You may call me Mercedes. I enjoy writing very much, even though I'm not really a Stephen King or a James Patterson (I'm far too much of a noob.)

Pen-Name: MercedesDeCristo

Gender: Female

Age: Early Twenties. That's all I'm gonna say.

Hey. It's been awhile. Sorry. College is okay so far but I've been busy and my writing style has changed a bit. I'm planning on rewriting 'The Pivots' and continuing 'Nomad,' so stay tuned.


A teenage girl about 17 named Diane had gone to visit some friends one evening and 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, and 93 of the people that read this won't repost it?

Repost this in your profile if you truly believe in God.
PS: God is always there in your heart and loves you no matter what,
and if you stand up 4 him he will stand up for you.


The Pivots illustration was done by a good friend of mine :)


Ten things about me:

7.) I'm very much like Zuko from ATLA - hotheaded and impatient. But I'm really loving :)

8.) I'm not that athletic (sorry.)

9.) I always say 'Pizza!' at the most awkward moments.

10.) I want to be a really good novelist someday.

Some floating ideas for stories and one-shots, be WARNED, I'm NOT going with all of them, just some ideas (and stories you may want to look forward to.)

1.) Across the Dimensions [Mystic Messenger] (Based on the April Fools DLC.)

Characters: Zen/MC

Summaries: The universes are merging - much to the Wizards' dismay. One interaction between two star-crossed lovers is the cause. What consequences may all of this have?

After finishing all the routes and the DLCs, I knew I was done with this game. I thought about uninstalling but I couldn't. Not when he's still trapped. Wait. He's...messaging me...?

(SPOILERS for the games.)

-Rated: T

-Genre: Supernatural/Romance

-Sub. Genres: Friendship/Family

2.) The Crew Origins [Dance Central]

Summary: How all the crews came to be.

Featuring some Sibling OCs, along with JJ and Sandy (only for Lu$h chapter.) Each crew will be featured in their own chapters, including D-Coy and DCI. Some references to The Pivots. (I might go with this idea.)

-Rated: T

-Genre: Friendship/Humor.

3.) Welcome to the Family [Avatar: The Last Airbender]

Characters: Toph/Lao/Poppy

Summary: Toph introduces her daughters to her parents. Beifong Family oneshot.

-Genre: Family/Humor

4.) A Flicker of Light/Tactile [The Legend of Korra]

Characters: Mako/OC

Summary: "Will you quit calling me that?!" he yelled in exasperation. "Yeah, I will - when hell freezes over." I loved picking on him, seeing him getting all annoyed and angry and yet he's as soft as a teddy bear - the one and only Mr. Butt.

-Rated: T

-Genre: Drama/Romance

-Sub. Genres: Friendship/Humor

5.) The Path to Freedom [Avatar: The Last Airbender]

Characters: Aang/OC

Summary: "You know if Sister Iio was here, she'd say that we're both idiots." He smiled, "We are."

-Rated: T-M

-Genre: Adventure/Romance

-Sub. Genres: Hurt/Comfort

6.) Whispering Wallflower [Mystic Messenger]

Characters: MC / MM cast

Summary: Ribbons of destiny coiled around us all. For most of my turbulent life, I hid my misery and pain. I could barely breathe. My world was frozen until that one push. That one push into becoming a member of the RFA made my complicated life harder. But it also saved my soul.

(SPOILERS for the game.)

-Rated: T-M (M for the darker themes later on.)

-Genre: Drama/Hurt/Comfort

Sub. Genres: Romance/Friendship/Family

7.) Woes of the Wallflower [Mystic Messenger]

[An Alternate version of 'Whispering Wallflower' but this includes the Reset Theory and the wizards]

Characters: MC

Summary: I was everything they wanted me to be and more. But in all this time I never knew who I was. I only molded myself into who they wanted me to be. This time, this time for once in my life, I will be selfish.

(Spoilers for the game.)

-Rated: T

-Genre: Drama/Friendship

-Sub. Genres: Romance/Hurt-Comfort/Family
