Hi, and welcome to Rainbow Fiction! We're a relaxed writing community for original fiction. Our local theme is colors as the names of our challenge lists, and the prompts for each are related somehow. You can find those over in [community profile] rainbowlists.

This here is our introductory, getting-to-know-you post. We'd like you to comment with the name you want us to know you by, your pronouns, and a bit about you and your story. We're interested in your story background and your characters, and we'd also like to hear about your writing philosophy. Do you write for fun? To work toward the goal of getting published? A way to interact with other people? Like to read other writing and connect that way?

Anything you'd like us to know, go for telling us here. A special welcome to members, new or old, participating in [community profile] getyourwordsout. YES YOU CAN DO IT.

Warnings: Consensual relationship briefly mentioned as starting with the initiating party is underage (17 and 19), and also between two people who are, by mutual agreement, keeping a lot of things from each other, because of dangerous circumstances around them.
Notes: I wrote someone throw me a parade it only took a year and a half. This was written super stream of consciousness well after I should have been asleep, and I'm not rereading it or else I'll never post it, so I'm hoping this makes sense? Meet one half of the sisters that are central to the main story, although it's not actually the one who's a main character.
Also, I need a tag for Darling Grey.
