I love Good Charlotte, especially Joel Madden.
I love him to death. I love Hilary Duff; she's my role model. I love watching the sun rise.
I play tennis. I write. I analyze human nature. I'm an internet-junkie. I have tons of sound effects. I love the rain. I have tons of friends, & I love them all. I can't sing, but I do anyways. I believe everything happens for a reason. I'm very affectionate. I love food. I'm obsessed with love. Sophie Monk is beautiful. Nicole Richie has great fashion.

I'm different. Love it or leave it =)



  • Joel is a lonely, shy man, just trying to find love. Gwen is an outspoken, eccentric woman, who judges too quickly and has a picky taste for men.
    Can Joel win Gwen over, or will he be out in three strikes?

    (Idea and characters loosely based off of the movies Garden State and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind)

  • “What I’m really trying to say is… that, well… I miss you, Miley. I really, really miss you. We were so close. Then… it happened, and we grew apart so fast… I feel like I lost my best friend. I miss my best friend, Miley. I miss you.”

  • “Sexual therapy for you and your significant other, by Joel Madden…” Tony read out loud. His boyfriend snickered from the couch. “And, what the fuck, is this?”

    “Oh, just a little book… you know, something I’ve been putting together,” Joel grinned up at Tony, who just shook his head.

  • Cait let out a crude laugh. “Earth to Joel; how about you take another look around, dear. We’re in an asylum. They’ve got us both doped up on drugs! And do you know why, why we’re sitting here in this padded room, with no furniture and a TV built into the wall? Because we’re crazy, Joel! We’re doomed, damned, hopeless! You can go on thinking that you’ll be saved, that you’ll be okay; but you won’t, Joel. You’ve gone beyond help, buddy. You’re stuck here now, stuck with me.”

  • Joel’s mind wandered back to his conversation with Dr. Manner. “If you can overcome Nina, then you can overcome everything else.” He smiled inside. He was going to overcome Nina. Nothing anyone said or did could stop him, not even Nina, herself.

  • “Then why are you here, Joel?” The doctor inquired, lightly furrowing his eyebrows together. A smile spread across Joel’s face as he shook his head.


    “Why am I here? Oh, that’s a simple question with a simple answer.” Joel nodded.


    Dr. Winger stared, “And what is that simple answer, Joel?”

  • The thoughts tore through my mind, like a lion’s teeth into an antelope’s neck. They suffocated me; I could only think about Leala – her laugh, her smile, her determination to save me. No one could or would understand what we had. It was like no other bond. She was always there for me; I was always there for her.

  • It all still amazes me.
    And I know that you're the reason I'm still here.
    Without you, I would've given up long ago.
    We held each other together, like glue. We completed each other.
    We balanced out each other perfectly.

  • I make it into chorus, amazingly without any taunts or threats from the popular crowd. Maybe, my luck is changing. I sit down at my usual seat, second row, forth seat, and I get out my notebook and begin writing my thoughts on today; about music, of course. I can hear the normal people fill in the room and Mrs. Farwell, the teacher, take her position at her podium. Lost in thought, I don’t really notice all the whispering going on about the weird, tattooed, pierced man standing up at the front.



    “Class,” Mrs. Farwell announces, catching my attention. “We have a special visitor today,” I look at the guy, blonde hair, same Madden face and charm as his brothers. I can’t help but stare.

  • {Sequel to Apple Spice} “Yeah… I see.” Benji mumbled and lifted my face to his. He kissed me again and I melted, forgetting what I was saying. He had such a crazy effect on me… I wish I hadn’t had pushed him away for so long… I wish I had just let him in to begin with. But that didn’t matter much anymore because I let him in now. And it all just felt so right, that’s all that matters, isn’t it? I think the only bad thing about dating Benji is the stupid reporters. Too bad you can’t punch them in the face.Written with NarcissistsRule.

  • “Oh, but of course,” Benji says in a Transylvania accent. As we walk in the house, I see that the inside is just as bland as the outside. Only one thing stands out, a statue of a Greek goddess. It looks beautiful and elegant. The goddess has perfect facial features, and is leaning on some sort of stone. Just as I was about to play 20 questions, I see Billy walk out in what looks like his boxers. I just stare.
