Oh goodness, I forgot to tell you!

You remember that book I mentioned in one of my reviews for your Jack the Ripper story/poem?

Well, I finally found the book at Barnes and Nobel: "Stalking Jack the Ripper" by Kerri Maniscalco and I'm saving this baby for Summer. xD At the beach. I'm too excited.

Are you reading anything? c: Any good books?

Hello Adam!

It's nice to hear from you again. (:

No need to apologize for anything. I understand how life outside of Figment gets a bit chaotic. I haven't been on Figment much either due to taking driving lessons and hoping to try out for my license test this summer. ^-^ I'm really excited. Especially with Summer being just around the corner. I'm so ready to spend my time at the beach and find some inspiration there for my writing. I can't wait!

Any Summer plans you have for yourself and your family? (:

Ah, yes. Well, the reason why I picked out the darker writings of yours was because it's one of my favorite genres to read in. Every writer I see has a different dark side to write. Whether it's plain horror that gives you goosebumps or paranormal tales that makes you want to sleep with the TV on, or perhaps blood-thirsty crimes that makes you lose sleep at night. But I think my most favorite out of these would have to be around the "madness" topic. Even though it drops in with the murder/thriller topic, but there's lots of different ways to use Madness.

For me, reading dark stories such as yours is a treat because every story is different. Every character is different and even though everyone says these topics have been used countless times before, it doesn't mean that they're cliché. No. They're different. Because every writer is different and has different ways to tell a dark story.

And reading yours was a joy. I really did enjoy reading your stories and leaving reviews. It was no problem at all so with all of this said, please don't feel bad about owing me back with reviews. I'm still writing on to One Last Smoke yet, and don't have much chapters up. I'm still writing and trying to find furthermore inspiration for it. I want this draft to be near perfect so that way I won't have to think about it being shitty again or having to rewrite it back over. And so far, I'm very proud of how it's turning out. It's turning out a lot more better than the first time and I'm having a blast writing it so far. (: I think this is one of my best projects yet.

Oh! Speaking of those movies, I did watch "An American Werewolf in London" the other night with my Mom. However, we couldn't finish watching it because we both agreed that the part where the main character has nightmares and it shows him killing and eating a animal was bad enough. Especially when we were watching it at night time. xD Haha. Bad move there. I shall give it another watch though perhaps this weekend whenever I get the chance.

As for "The Howling"....eh. I saw this movie last year and it sucked ass. Forgive my language, but it really did lol. It scared my Mom, but for me, it was a little stupid and weird. Once was enough for me to watch it. Did you enjoy this movie is you seen it? o:

Oh! The Lost Boys is amazing. I have that movie on DVD. The first one anyways. The second one was okay. I'm happy the second one had Corey Feildman in it and he got to keep his role for one of the Frog brothers. But I believe the first Lost Boys movies was better. It was a classic. Probably one of the best vampire movies there is in my opinion. Better than Twilight.

As for Dracula, I haven't seen that movie yet. Nor have I read the book sadly. =/ I have the book though. I bought it last year at Ollies and I was super excited because it was in better condition and didn't have the coffee-spill stained and torn pages like the copy I bought from the thrift shop.

I want to thank you for pointing these movies out to me though. That was really sweet of you. But I must add this: "Cursed" is probably the best werewolf movie out there for me. Not too bloody, not too much of the swearing, it was just right. The characters were perfect (honestly, if Christina Ricci is in a movie, you know it's going to be good.), the storyline was perfect, and just the whole movie itself was beyond perfect. I even loved how they threw in a bit of comedy in it as well with Jimmy's role.

Again, one of the best werewolf movies out there for me. The story was just perfect.

Welp, I hope you're doing well as well as your family. Stay safe, stay cool, stay healthy, and stay happy!

-Steph (:
