My close friends call me Eth and my students call me Miss T. My name is Ethelyn, just like my penname. Before that, I was also known as Ebirin and Misslyn.



Not 17 anymore, but still love this site and everything that it entails. I've met many friends on this site. My relationship with GC has it's ups and downs, but they remain close to my heart. I've grown and changed, just like the boys from the band.


Thank you to anyone who still reads and reviews. Stories which are updated are the ones that I feel like writing in. If you have any questions, feel free to email me.



  • Someone once told me that it doesn't matter the story, it's all in how you tell it. That's what matters. So here's mine. This is a story...a love story between two people spanned for more than over ten years. Our ups and downs, our love and hate, our passion that never seems to falter. This is my story about a boy named Benji Madden and how we grew up, grew apart, and grew together.

  • I shook my head, "Being adopted? That...what is that like?"

    "It's like...being misplaced. Being lost at a store and you don't know what happened. Landing somewhere and you didn't know how you got there. You always feel like you belong somewhere else, you always wonder what your other life would have been like. You know that somewhere out there is another person that is related to you by blood..." I was floored. Joel just smiled simply at me when he described his feelings and shrugged.

    Two twins, two seperate lives, two different worlds come crashing together without realizing the truth. A not so simple story about high school, family, relationships...and what it really means to love a person.

  • Alicia is trying to keep her sanity as a brand new actress and singer in the hostile world of Hollywood. The only thing that's been helping her with this is her fiancee, Matthew. She's very careful not to fall into the wrong crowd or do the wrong things, trying to stay away from the Hollywood lifestyle.

    Joel just got out of a very public break up and has been casted in his very first major role in a movie. Unfortunately for him, he finds himself becoming instantly infatuated with the brand new girl of Hollywood who is completely unattainable. He becomes very careful not to cross any boundaries, fighting to keep his own sanity.

    They'll both realize that sometimes people need to let go and be as clumsy as life will let them be.

  • With nothing in common, there was no reason for Benji to be attracted to Julia, besides her being drop dead gorgeous. As for Julia, after her horrible break up with her ex-fiancee, being with someone was far from what she wanted. But do we ever see anything coming in our lives?

  • Joel always thought that he had everything he wanted in life: fame, fortune, and success. That is, until his fiancee Nicole gave birth to his baby boy. Now publically embarrassed, Joel escapes back to Waldorf, the one place he vowed to never go back to.

    Alexis always thought that she lived life on her own terms. Her mind thrived on the 'do it yourself' independent punk ethos she grew up on: her own apartment, her own shop, her own youth center. She didn't need any one else. That is, until a certain ex-high school sweetheart comes crashing back into her life.


    “I hope that you’re happy, everything that you could ever want in California. I hope that you’re a picture of success.”

    "Her voice still rings in my ears, the last words that I heard her say before permanently leaving my life. Now, after nine years, she still hits a part of my heart that’s been sutured away."
