    It Started With The Magnifying Glass...

    I've always liked fire. I remember standing next to the bonfire on new years eve, admiring it for hours and paying no attention to anything else, its elegant flames licking at the wood with true beauty, yet so destructive and chaotic. I just fell in love. But i never made fires...

    I Constantly Do Stupid Things With Fire.

    I have burnt a sofa in a park causing the fire brigade to come. Set fire to the centre piece on christmas day. Blown my face up trying to burn a wicker basket with aerosol, burnt my lips and singed eye lashes, brows and fringe. I have lit a fire in the woods using petrol. Mum...

    Fire Is Amazing

    I just love the look of it. I would always start fires at my house, sometimes just little ones like paper towels and other things, but also big ones like a pool of gasoline. I discovered at a young age that you could make a mini-flamethrower out of a lighter and a can of air...

    I love everything about fire.

    The color, the movement, the heat, the smell. I set a lot of things on fire. Like a lot. I get in trouble all the time for setting things aflame. What would you do if your daughter set your shed on fire. Hehe.

    Hmm...I love the warmth of fire on my hand.

    ..the feeling of burning hand sanitiser on my skin is just so amazing, after shaking it out that nice, fresh and cool feel on it just sends shivers down my back. I also just enjoy the smell of sulphur and wood burning into ash, watching the bright flame devour the match stick...

    The Flames Of Fury

         Earlier tonight I lit up some paper and sat in my driveway for minutes watching the paper glow. After I ran out of gas with my lighter, I sat there looking at the stars. I was worried about who I was and why I was like this. I barely discovered that I love fire more than...

    Ever since I was young,

    I've been really interested in fire. When I was little, I was introduced to fire for the first time when my family went on a camping trip when I was 4 and they made a camp fire. I was really fascinated by the fire, and I would kinda sit around and watch it. I didn't touch it...

    I Guess You Could Say That.

    I don't go around setting random objects on fire or anything like that.  I just really love fire.  I love to stare at matches and candles.  I especially love candles that make the flame change color. I've thought about buying a lighter just to have one. ...
