I don't mind answering questions! But please remember that if your review is not signed, I can't answer it. If you're confused about my story or have questions/comments you'd like me to respond to, I encourage you to leave a signed review because I rarely address reviews in chapters, especially after a story has already been finished.
Disclaimer: I do not own (insert copyrighted series here) or any related material and I do not profit from these works of fanfiction. If I owned Naruto, Kakashi would have many more angsty exposition scenes. I don't like Chasing Vermeer much and I don't own it. Harvest Moon is also not owned by me. And if I owned Harry Potter, you would know my name already.

5/5/08 Alethia is on hiatus. I decided it would be very mean of me to just stop writing it without giving the proper notification; I hate it when authors do that even more than when they put my favorite stories on hiatus. (Such a filthy hypocrite!)
8/14/08 Ah, some people were upset with the ending of 'Static'... but I have no regrets! Despite my complete lack of plans for one, if there really is a sequel the ending ending I told some people is subject to change!
8/31/09 I deleted Metronome for personal reasons. If you want it back, I could email it to you or something. I was just done seeing that up there. Now it's just my stories.
8/5/10 Shadowplay is on hiatus, because I want the updates to be regular when I start updating again. I want to develop a much more thorough outline-- get the hard part out of the way, then just transfer to the computer for quick and easy updates.
11/20/10 I took off the list of Current Projects and Finished Projects because I will do what I want to do but I don't want too many expectations putting pressure on me.
Notice: Small Tokens has been renamed Hodgepodge Mélange. I thought "Small Tokens" as a name was too... I dunno! I didn't like it! I changed it! "Hodgepodge Mélange" is much more fun to say. But gosh, I might get sick of this one too. "Small Tokens" I thought was a bit rich, but "mélange" is a French word of all things! Is it balanced by the unsophisticated "hodgepodge"??? If you liked the other better... well, I guess you can tell me! June 14, 2010
The Quest is an idea I have had for a long time. Saturday Crack at a community of which I am part is the day where we post crack things. One member posted links to some random pairing generators. This got me thinking of the Quest again, a lofty idea that has been floating around in my brain for a great time now. What is the Quest, you might ask? The Quest is my desire to have a story for every coupling of two Naruto characters that has no story in the FFN archive. Saturday Crack's list of pairing generators has inspired me to go through with this quest. Now, that is what I will be using.
In keeping with the spirit of Saturday Crack, I intend on posting these stories only on Saturdays. Some Saturdays will have none, one, or many! Even though I'm using pairing generators, not all of these stories will be romantic. Even though entries to the Quest may be short, I won't be putting them in my Naruto collection, Small Tokens. That's because the whole point is that they can be found by using the character drop-down menus on FFN!
And I won't stop working on Shadowplay just because of the Quest. There are many things I want to write, and Shadowplay is a very tough story to write so sometimes I'm not up to it! Especially with school. However, rest assured that production of Shadowplay will not stop. Working on this project will not really make Shadowplay's updates take longer because when I'm working on the Quest, I'm not doing it instead of writing Shadowplay-- rather, I'm doing the Quest because I cannot write Shadowplay at that time. It's a tough beastie of a story!
Lastly, I invite other people to partake in the Quest! There are a lot of character combinations out there just begging to have stories written about them! Can't you hear their desolate cries? I sure can!
