Who is Scarlett?

Well, for one thing, she reads, comments and votes on stories she likes.

Besides that, the question, although seemingly simple, is quite complex. Scarlett is just one of the many voices that dwell in this girl's head. She often breaks out into song at inappropriate moments. Always keeps "To Do" lists that are several pages long. Her outlook on life is optimistically pessimistic. She firmly believes that most things will turn out badly, but almost always for the best. She writes in the first person, except when writing about herself. She generally dislikes this task because of all the characters that threaten to take over her motor functions she finds herself to be the least interesting.

Among them, there is a 48-year-old retired clown called Bob and a 14-year-old boy named Timmy, who has a penchant for coming up with funny, sarcastic remarks about everyone she meets. She often has to remind herself not to laugh at his antics in front of others. She wouldn't want anyone to think shes insane. Other than Timmy and Bob, there is also her imaginary pet Pekinese named Falcor, who barks loudly and often to ensure she is up at all hours of the night.

She used to try to ignore the voices for many years, until one night she decided to write one of their stories down on a napkin in a diner. She found the experience to be enjoyable and decided to continue doing so. Sadly, the story on the napkin was lost forever on a rainy day, so she decided to use a medium less susceptible to the weather. The internet seemed like a good option.
