Hello, everyone.  Skylar Alexander here.

So I guess this is where I say big changes are coming to SkylarAlexander. 
Or, rather, some big changes have came already.

First, the layout of this bad boy is completely revamped (and rather fantastic, if I do say so myself)
Second, I'm slowly working on consolidating previous entries to make browsing much easier for readers.
Third, I'm actually going to try and hold up my end of the bargain when I said I'd have writing guides. 

Also, this community is managed under this livejournal account, not my old one.  Not that that is all that important. 

I'm still having a few problems with the layout; I can't get the individual entry pages to reflect the layout, although on my personal account where I use this same layout, they work fine.  I wonder if its because SkylarAlexander is a community.

Story: Boo (A Short Story By Skylar Alexander)
Chapters: 8
Summary: Needing a place to stay, teenage train-wreck Sascha Karolek squats in an abandoned, decrepit house on the edge of Cabal, New Mexico.  He did not expect to find the place already occupied—especially with ghosts. Incidentally (and ironically) it's only this bunch of dead guys that can teach him a little about living, and help him turn his life around.

Story: I Was A Teenage Kappa
Chapters: 5
Summary: “Would God...” Troy sighs, preparing himself to say it aloud. “Turn me into a fish?" “We are all fish in God’s divine net. In the book of Mark—" “But that’s just figurative language, Father,” he says. “I’m being completely serious. Completely literal."

A story I wrote, inspired by a kappa-related story on FictionPress.  I'm very sad to report it is no longer online.

Story: Shenanigans
Chapters: 9
Summary: There has been a voice calling out to me for as long as I can remember and isolating me from the world around me. While visiting my mother up in a village so high up in the mountains that it missed the industrialization memo, I finally found out why. Now I have Fox, a mythical prankster spirit, sleeping at the foot of my bed. Since then, I am constantly bombarded by hypocrisies, havoc and chaos all in the spirit of "good fun" from a kitsune who has nothing better to do than get me into trouble.

...NINE...
