    Hi, my name is Aurora though my friends usually call me Arorua or simply Rorua - even if I don't like the last form >__< I'm 22, I graduated from college this summer and I'm still looking for a job because the economy is very poor in Romania. I've been writing for about six years, I think, but I only started to use English about a couple of years ago. I haven't really learned English at school so I only know how to use it from movies and music and other stuff like that, so I thought of coming to this site for some help about this and, of course, about my writing.

    Hmm... I usually write MxM pairings, but the pairing I love the most is a het one that I've created along with one of my friends so we've been thinking to try and write MxF again because this is what got us started. The two of us usually write together so we'll be posting our stories here and asking for your guidance and to help us improve ourselves. It's the first time that we're trying to post somewhere we can truly get some good reviews, so we might still be newbies at this, but we want you to give it your all xDD

    If you have questions for me, please address them ^^ And nice to meet you~

    And just small head up Arorua, you said something about posting work and getting reviews... I'm guessing that is asking for critiques then. For that, you post in the SYW section, but you can't post your work there until you have 50 posts. You can, however, critique other people's work at the moment.

    Please read the FAQ about posting photos.

    In fact we have lots of brilliant FAQs check them out.

    Thanks for your welcomes <3

    Hmm... I've read the rules and looked a bit through the forum so I know that I need 50 posts to be able to share my work, I'm just not so confident at commenting to other people's work when I'm still a newbie myself and I'm mostly writing for fun - even if I would love to be published someday and there are some people who believe that I can... So it seems that I'll be spending some time greeting new members just like me if that's not a problem ^^ [I just wish I'll have more time for it >__<]

    Oh, and thanks for the links, I'll make sure to check them right now if I hadn't already.

    Welcome. I couldn't tell that English isn't your first language.

    I can't say how happy I am to know this as English is actually my third language xDD Though French, my second one, is kind of poor in comparison with English...
