About me

Occupation Old soul.
Location A hollow tree
Introduction My real name is Bethany, but I've been writing under 'Melee' for so long I don't want to change it. I've been writing on these blogs so long when I started I was still convincing myself I was heterosexual. Goodness. I read a lot of books and watch too many TV shows. I like musical theatre and Lesbian films a lot. That's about it at the moment.

You've broken up with your old band and are about to release your first solo album. Please write the liner notes:

I wrote all the songs on this album with the help of caffeine and inspirational windowseats. I recorded this album in my bathroom while taking a shower; I was trying to be time-efficient but I ended up just being waterlogged. I'm releasing this album because I don't know when to just stop and give up. Please send any hate mail to my therapist. Thank you.
