I know it's against the coc but i wanna type in a caps so badly. This just made my day. I had a terrible morning, got back a lab with a bad grade on it because my lab partner forgot to turn in the lab we completed, had an in class assignment that my team had to rush to finish, and i was very unhappy with the end result, then i had a bad violin lesson, by the end of which i was fast approaching tears. I staggered in the door and thought "hmm i'll check my email before i start crying hysterically" and the notice about the sneak peek was in it. short story with both of my top favorite characters in it? that just about makes my entire day perfect, the best day in a week, and grade wise today is 110%.
long story short this is the best day ever!!!!!!! flamelssecret/hyper_.gif flamelssecret/sFun_explosive.gif i love Michael so much right now. only this could have made my day as great as it has now become.

You never knew. That was his power. The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist. And like that, poof. He's gone.
