Helen Keller's well-known autobiography, "The Story of My Life," was written while she was in college and published in 1903. Much less known is her shorter autobiography, "My Story," which she wrote at age 12 especially for a magazine called "Youth's Companion." As Helen Keller explained in her 1903 autobiography: "[Miss Sullivan] persuaded me to write for the 'Youth's Companion' a brief account of my life. I was then twelve years old. As I look back on my struggle to write that little story, it seems to me that I must have had a prophetic vision of the good that would come of the undertaking, or I should surely have failed. I wrote timidly, fearfully, but resolutely, urged on by my teacher." When "Youth's Companion" published the four-part account, Helen Keller was not yet well known, and her story was prefaced by the explanatory remark: "Written wholly without help of any sort by Helen Keller, a deaf and blind girl, twelve years old, and printed without change."

Long befre i came to scarlt letter i was at rue. A demigod roleplay. As wolf. I was the son of odin. Odin was hi name but not as in The Odin. He was a demon. Not a god. I fell deeply in love with the grl who saved me, kels. I dated her for months and months. I met her brother, Jacob. Soon after. Befe i ce ti scart letter. I asked her to marry me. One the day of our wedding, she vanished. No one has seen her since. Jacob and i spent months looking for her. She never turned up. Ever. Even now, i still more or less miss her. I came to scart letter in april. 2012. I first met Miya. A beautiful and kind yet sarcastic and outgoing girl that i fell inlove with instantly. I found that she was datining meone, even though i swore to never fall inlove with another person after kels. I met fang. Who helped work my way through my depression. I fell inlove with her as well. I realized that i met her at Rue. I met storm several days later. She too, i met at rue. I had a hell of a hard time, deciding whether to choose miya, who became calla. Or fang. Who was stuck between me and Guthix. I chose fang for a while. Things were good. I asked fang to marry me in th summer, only to find out that because i asked her, she realized she loved Guthix more. I still loved her. Though i left. Fang was pregnant at the time. She thought that our child shouldn't be raised without father, and killed the growing baby inside of her. I came back a week later. As a new person. Still went by wolf but i decided that i was completely done with love. Until i ran into Calla again. She was too, different. But still the same. She went to hell. And came back. I still felt love for her. I told her several weeks later. She rejected me. Said tht she hated me. To this day, i know that isn't true. I know she could never love or even consider liking a spoiled brat such as myself. I was young an foolish. Unable to see th knife heading for my chest. Wgen she rejected me again i realized i would never be fully accepted for who i am. I went to her overlook. Andjumped. Diving into the sharp spikey rocks below. I stayed dead for months. Until i came back. My soul was slowly destroying itself. And i never found love. When i got back with fang, david, or so we thoght was david, came back. And she left me for someone whom she thought was dead. I still haven't forgiven that lying bltch for hurting her. Whenever i got back with Fang, logan or xavr or guthix would sweep her off her feet and take her away. Log d guthix were countless. I knew i wasn't a match for those immature little shlts. xavier did it during the summer. Though he never actually askedher out himself, or so i'm told. I stull felt love for Calla. Knowing i would never stand a chance against cain. I knew i would never be good enough to satisfy her. To this very moment, i can't decide who to love....

((I shall try to inform my friends about this.)) I started out at Men of Iron a year and three months ago as a young girl named Anna that loved to troll. Life was uneventful, and I was despised by most. And then I saw my chance at Greece. This roleplay was full of demigods that loved nothing more than to battle. All the boys were strong, the girls definetely heroines in their own way. I showed up on the scene a few weeks or so after it started, only to be greeted by a funny chap named Will. We became fast friends, and I fell in love with him. Not that I would admit it out loud, for he was dating my best friend at the time, named Silena. Then I met Logan. He was the boy all the girls wanted, a great dancer, an all-around awesome dude. He was dating a girl thay went by my previous name, Anna. I enjoyed sharing drinks and cigarettes with him. Still to this day Logan and I do the same exact thing. About mid-February, I just dissapeared for a while. When I returned, I found the new demigod roleplay at Rue. Jackie, Angel, and Leo were the friends I made there. That was in March, I would say. Will showed up about a week later, leading me to my current home; Scarlet Letter. I found out that Logan was engaged to a girl named Fang, Will went by Crow, and most of my old friends were just gone. Though I adopted to my new surroundings quickly, finding a friend in a fiery redhead named Natasha and a lively girl named Dani. I spent the begininng of summer lounging in trees with Dani and sparring with Natasha, who just so happened to be an enemy of mine during the Scarlet War. ((I lead The Fallen along with Demise against Scarlet Letter. So, for a while, I was indeed evil.)) And then I met Caledarin, still one of the most respected roleplayers to this day. I fell in love with him and followed him around like a sick puppy whilst he was dating Natasha. My nights were spent talking to Fang, my best friend, about how much I wanted him, only him. The remainer of my summer was spent partying with Fang, Miya((Calla)), Gale, Tag, Logan, Cale, and a few others. When the summer ended, a lot of my friends dissapeared. For a while, it was down to Fang and I. A few others befriended me, such as Xavier, Cain, Viper, Lilli, David, and Canine. But they weren't exactly enough for me. I yearned to relive those summer days and nights. Even my new friends dissapeared. I have dated many guys since then, gotten myself in trouble, ended and started friendships, won and lost battles, and killed a few bunnies. But I shall always remember the Storm Blake that thirsted for a fight, a kiss from Cale, a hug from Fang, a dance with Logan, and a drink shared with Miya. ((TA DA!))
