Now the reason why I'm here. I was watching this show called "When good pets go bad" and I was sitting on my bed with my mouth hanging open. These attacks - most of them - the victims had it coming. I am stilled so stunned of how people can take an animal from its natural habitat, taunt it, tease it, try to change it and not expect it to snap. Like the moron that decided it was a great idea to collect snakes - I'm not talking about small snakes - I'm talking about cobras, boas - the dangerous ones. HELLO? Does anyone else see a problem with this?
Those things can wrap around someone and kill them, they can escape and eat other people's pets, babies - what in the world made someone think it's a good idea to bring a snake that big or at all into their homes? Or the smart guy that thought it was a grand idea to take a tamed horse and basically untrain it to be wild again just so he could put it into the rodeo. The horse went nuts and started biting the man. Now I dont like seeing people get hurt but this man was some kind of stupid! Messing with the natural instincts of an animal that size can only end in tears. Or the grown man that thought "hey! I'm gonna poke this dog with this stick!"
Ok, he deserved to get bit! Too bad they put the dog down. If you keep poking me with a stick I would snap and kick your butt so why does the dog have to take it? Another one that gets me, is the people that travel abroad and bring animals back. Erm, no, why? Leave the animals where they are. It can cause all sorts of problems, from new diseases, to danger to communities to the animals dying because they are not accustomed to the temperature or atmosphere. Letting animals die like this is not only painful but inhumane. So here are some pointers:
--> Stop using horses in crowded places.
Horses HATE crowds and people can be stupid as hell to taunt the horse, then everyone is in trouble.
--> Stop getting dangerous animals like snakes, tigers, lions etc as pets. That's just dumb and dangerous.
--> Stop taming and untaming horses...
--> Don't taunt animals because just because you're a dummy and do that doesn't mean that no one else won't he hurt. If you're the only one there, knock yourself out.
And the BIG one, the one that they should already know SNAKES ARE NOT PETS!
I'm not saying that people should die during these things but seriously, stupidity hurts. Thanks all for reading my little rant!

Hello everyone! I am K.D Tracey the second half of the Divas. Yes, we were brought together because of our love of writing. We do most of our writing in the dead of the night when sane people are sleeping but I have this to say about sleep - Slee is overrated- lol. We are hoping to bring you stories that are sexy, romantic, classy - all of that wrapped up in a nice little package. A bit about me, I am a romance writer and student. I have a few titles out at the moment (Kadian Tracey). The titles include African Chocolate, A Scottish Lord's Destiny, Desert Protector and Broken Wings.
My taste in music ranges all over the world - so does Anya's - as you can probably tell from our little music ninja box on the right hand side of this blog's screen. We will be adding music to it all the time so even if you don't come back to read our ramblings, stop by to chill with the musical Ninja.
I was born in Jamaica and now living in Canada. I am trying to get my BA at the moment and it is not easy. I think school was sent to test my patience but still I stick with it because I have to set an example to the people who read my work and my little sisters. I mean, if I quit how can I then tell them to go to school and do well? Anyways, I love writing stories with a little bit of steam but romantic at the same time. Anya and I are working on two titles. One was meant to be a short story then it was meant to be a novella, now we just stopped setting a border and let it go where it wants to go.
Please visit our website to get a more indepth look at us.
Thanks again for stopping by!
May all your days be romantic and may all your nights be sensual under the light of the moon!

Hey everyone I am Diva Anya -- and welcome to our blog.
So, a bit about us? For starters it is no joke - we love to write. That passion alone is what brought us together across countries not so long ago in the dead of one night. Everyone has a song right? Ours, hands down, is Vindicated by Dashboard confessional - at the time of this writing it is the song playing on the page. We both attached to that song for years before even knowing each other.
Writing together? Honestly, we've known each other just under a month at this point but I might get a bit wishy-washy girly here and say it does feel like forever. It is too the point where we are often telling each other - "get out of my head," and already we have a handful of projects under way, some slight disagreements and secrets we have already shared.
As to our projects - one is Velocity, its 'supposed' to be a short story but I tell you all, its burning up my mind and my keyboard and making me adjust to writing the grammatically correct and publishable way. Velocity will live up to its name in more ways than one, a story of a georgeous dark skinned man with a sensitive side he lets loose around little children, and a sensual side he gives to the woman he loves, a pale-haired woman determined to make it on her own.
You must catch it. You absolutely must!
On the tail of Velocity is a story entitled Maria's Latin Lover. People, this one will be hot. I can't say much without giving away much, but the title alone should set some ideas out there. She's not a shy violet, and he has a world at his fingertips that is missing one thing...
Now... drum roll... a bit about Me:
Lets see, I might have slipped into my early 30's. I might be single and living in Arizona with a sister. I might have a job that allows me to write in the middle of the night. I might have a passion for writing, and have had it since I was a tiny girl. I can't remember how old I was when I wrote my first poem but I do remember what I wrote. It was about candy of course! What else does a tiny girl want but that? Will I write it here? Maybe one day. But I seriously doubt it as it makes me blush a bit.
From there I went on to writing what I thought were songs, then short stories, then when I was 13 or 14 I attempted my first novel. It was about a girl who wanted a horse [after all, what else does a 13 year old girl want most] and after getting said horse from a rescue operation, she trained it and made it all the way to the Olympics.
I still have that story too.
Then I sunk myself into the world of magic and fantasy. This was where my heart lay at. In highschool I was rather alone -- alot. All my friends went to other schools or somehow we drifted apart. I spent most my lunchtimes hiding in the Library just to keep the others from tormenting me. I found a book there that was in fact a fantasy/magic love story. The main characters barely kissed and hugged -embraced- was the word used. But it melted my heart to read about people so in love. But in the end - the main guy LEFT the girl. He got in a boat and left her on the shoreline!
At age 14, that just doesn't happen.
Shy quiet me, glasses and all, in the middle of class one day when I wasn't supposed to be reading but was, launched that book out of anger against the wall.
You should have seen the looks on everyone's faces. At the end of class I picked it up. I decided something, if no one was writing what I wanted to read - I would write it.
And so a monster was created.
Over the next 13 years I poured my heart and soul into fantasy writing, story after story filled my head and came out from under my fingertips, every free minute I had was spent at a keyboard. I could write 63 pages in one day - easy. My mother had to bring food into me.
Eventually, I sent one away for publishing.
Thank God it was rejected. If by some chance it had published I'd rather it be buried somewhere in a hole.
But eventually, I moved out. When I did writing time became less and less as real life took over. I fell madly MADLY in love with a man I grew up with.
He left me after seven years, to make a long story short.
My motivation for writing slowly died out, over the next five years, trickled down into online web games. But that did keep my writing alive, and it helped it to develop and grow.
Then last month I met Diva Kadian.
She hit me with a Nerf bat and motivation exploded.
My fingers write again, if a bit self-consciously. But I write again. I still have grammar errors, but all that will fix with time.
Thanks Diva Sister, for finding me and continuing to put up with me and my sometimes childish ways. Thanks to everyone else too for putting up with me.
I hope you enjoy our stories. Ideas and comments are always always welcome.
