Well, hello, all! It's been quite a while, hasn't it? I'd like to apologize to all my readers who were reading stories that have not been updated, either for months or (Babes of Ino and Shika) years. I'm sorry to say that I've lost my passion for writing fanfiction. I haven't watched or read Naruto, which all my stories were about, in over a year and a half. I've moved on to different passions, and have also started writing original fiction. I've had several realizations about writing recently, and it's changed my perspective on it. It made me happy, because it showed that I am progressing as a writer; however, it made me sad as well, because I realized this would be the end of my fanfiction career. Don't worry, I will finish the Coup and hopefully the Babes of Ino and Shika. There's also a half-written one shot or two that I'd like to get out as well. However, no more Naruto epics will be coming from this writer. Sorry for posting a preview of a story that will probably never be written. Aside from that one, I've got ideas for stories that will probably just stay in my head. That's what makes me sad. Anyway. I just figured I'd let people know what was going on. This is not the official end, I promise, but it's something that's on the horizon. Thanks for being such wonderful readers!

The most moving and emotionally draining Naruto fic:
The most amazing Neji fan video you will ever watch in your entire lifetime. It makes me tear-up and/or cry every time I watch it. Anyone who calls themselv a Neji fan should watch it.

Here is the section where I will add things as they happen and such
December 27, 2008: Hello everyone! Just letting you all know I am still alive, being slowly chewed by school and life, and am working on updates AND a new story. Yay!
September 13, 2008: Babes of Neji and Tenten is officially...FINISHED!
July 17, 2008: Well, me computer's back, but the hard drive is fried, so everything is GONE. So you know what that means...more waiting! Sorry...this time it's not something I can help.
June 27, 2008: Broken. Hard. Drive. plus Vacation.
May 10, 2008: I am back.
February 17, 2008: Well, I can now say that I have been on fanfiction.net for more than a year, because yesterday was my 1 year anniversary! Woohoo! Let's throw a party! Gosh, I can't even believe that it's only been a year. Thanks to everyone who I've met here for making my time here enjoyable, and thanks to those who've helped me when I come to you with weird questions in my pms, thank you to those who have me on favorite author/author alert (I'm still in shock that people like my writing enough to do that!), and thank you to those who have stuck with my stories, even though the space between updates has grown since the beginning. Let's see...I definitely feel that my writing has improved since I first came here. When I read my first two stories, I kind of wince a little bit, but I will never take them down, for they are my first two stories I let anyone else read and I love them. Also, since coming here, I've been able to read so many great stories. I believe my first one was A Storm Over Blossoms, a Takari story from Digimon. I had never heard of fanfiction before, and I was so excited by it! Now, I've moved on from digimon into the vast, VAST world of Naruto fanfiction, where I've also found many, many amazing stories. Now, to celebrate my anniversary, I shall give you all the second-to-last chapter of Babes of Neji and Tenten, which I shall post sometime today. Thank you again to everyone, and I hope that I will have another great year, posting new stories and finishing some others.
January 21, 2008: A very belated Happy New Year, everyone! So right now, I'm working on finishing up Babes of Neji and Tenten. I'm kind of dreading ending it, only because I've only ever finished one chapter story. It's so emotional. And also, I am in the midst of writing an epic one-shot about Team Gai. It's actually gonna turn out being a mini chapter story, but I'm not gonna post it until I finish it. There are NOT going to be any month-long waits for this story.
December 15, 2007: I started watching Shippuden last night and I am now incredibly obsessed. And I LOVE GAARA! He's amazing! And Kankuro and Temari are also amazing. And we saw Shika in the first episode! And we see Team Gai as well! And I can even tolerate Sakura now. Woohoo! Shippuden is pretty amazing, everyone. Pretty amazing.
December 4, 2007: Okay, I haven't written here in a while. I had some issues with updating my profile, and there are still some issues, but I managed to make it a little shorter than it was. I had a writing slump in October and November because I was so so SO busy, but now I'm back into the swing. I'm particularly into the Babes of Neji and Tenten. I'm sort of running out of gas for Babes of Ino and Shika, which really makes me sad, but hopefully I'll get back into it after I finish BoNaT, and gotten a decent way into Coup. So yeah, that's about it. This whole new set up for doing your profile is kind of annoying me. I can't make a new line without having a space between it and the first! It's kind of annoying.
October 1, 2007: Well, I had a great birthday, everyone. Thanks to darktank for thinking of me on my special day!
September 3, 2007: Oh my gosh, today I watched the episode where Shikamaru was crying. It completely broke my heart and I started crying. How did the people who make the Naruto show come up with a piece of background music that, combined with either Shikamaru or Neji, makes me cry? I don't get it. But yes, just like in Neji's fight with Kidoumaru, I was crying while watching Naruto.
August 21, 2007: I was just watching a bunch of Naruto episodes on Youtube and I just re-fell in love with Kiba, while at the same time falling a bit for Gaara, and realizing that the Sand Sibs are completely amazing! A lot of stuff happens from episode 116 to 126. A lot.
August 5, 2007: I can get email now. Yay!
July 23, 2007: I just got back from a two week vacation, so I'm sorry about updates and stuff. Also, the computer that I get my email from is currently not at my house, so if you have PMed me and I haven't responded, that is why. I'm sorry!
June 13, 2007: Reviews for Babes of Ino and Shika have surpassed those for Shikamaru: lost in fog. I don't know whether to be happy or sad.
June 12, 2007: OH MY GOSH I FOUND ANOTHER FAVORITE NARUTO PAIRING! HANA AND ITACHI! AHHHHHH!
May 30, 2007: I was hit with an idea for my new, big adventure story. Hooray!
May 29, 2007: Shikamaru: Lost in Fog is dubbed COMPLETE
May 8, 2007: Now starts school crunch time. So I'm probably gonna be a little slower on my stories. Sorry!
April 17, 2007: HOORAY! I CAN DOWNLOAD! No need to worry, my problem is fixed. Now, I'm gonna put out some more Fog chapters. And a new story.
April 12, 2007: We have a problem. My computer won't let me upload any documents! HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO UPDATE? HELP ME!
April 10, 2007: Today, I fell in love with Neji Hyuuga.
