I am a SAHM with four children and a grandmother--a very YOUNG grandmother--or so I like to delude myself into thinking. I am also a full time college student working on a Masters of Fine Art. I am fairly new to Twilight, having fallen in love with the books and movies back in April of 2010 after resisting my niece's repeated attempts to get me to read the Saga.

Fan Fiction is a whole new adventure as well. Prior to about June of 2010, I did not even realize that the genre even existed! Not too long after I started reading other fan fiction, I started getting a niggling of a story idea in the back of my mind. After mentioning it to one or two friends, I tried to let it go, but instead it grew and grew. While talking to my niece via AIM about it, I realized that I had a fairly decent story line and saved it all to a word doc. I thought that would be the end of it, but the characters had different ideas. Whole dialogues started cropping up and interfering with any other writing I was trying to do for school. So, I started writing. Going Under for the Third Time is the result of that. I hope you enjoy reading Jasper's story as much as I am enjoying writing it.

Courtesy of the foolishness going on, I am in the process of updating all of my stories here, and moving the rest over. My goal is to complete the process by the end of the week. Bear with me while I get everything moved in and settled in this revamped home.


Going Under now has a thread on Twilighted's Forums! This is all new to me, so bear with me while it gets going. Thanks so much to Puppymam0909 for loving GU so much that she created this!

Going Under has received The Lemonade Stand Stamp of Approval, having been chosen as a Flavor of the Week.
