STORIES (In the order in which they will be worked on first.)

An Imperfect Doll

(8/15/23) Coming Soon - Kenshin learns what the Emperor has planned, Kaoru learns about an old friend, and Sojiro begins his end game.

Castle Ruins

(4/26/20) Extras: I will be posting a couple of chapters with extra nonsense that I enjoyed daydreaming about while writing this story. I hope everyone will join me, if only just to laugh and enjoy the warm fuzzies. :)

(11/04/2014) Everyone MUST check out these wonderfully awesome sketches by the amazing indusina! Just copy and paste the links into a new window. If you have any problems getting the second one to come up, just click on her name in the first link and see the newest sketches that she has submitted. They are all amazing! Thanks indusina! It's so exciting getting see a story have some kind of life like this!



Is being translated into Spanish. How very exciting! Thanks so much Zury! You're the best!

Chapter 9 is now in Spanish. I hope the rest of the story is still eagerly awaited.

Doing some editing on the English chapters. Up to chapter 15 now. (9/15/15)

My Only Joy

(10/17/2013) I've been writing on this story, but I'm afraid my voice has changed within it. I hope it won't be disappointing if I post and it doesn't exactly feel the same.

(08/30/2013) As much as I would love to finish this story just to say it is complete, I can't bring myself to put in the time to do it. I think I have worn myself out on it and I'm not as interested in its story line anymore. It's not as original as I would like for it to be, and it frustrates me to try and work on it because I have so many other stories that are more interesting to me at the moment that I can't give it the attention it deserves. I'm sorry... but I'm really not sure if I'm going to finish this story or not. Out of the three I have not completed, this one would be the one I would want to the most. I'm sorry my poor little abandoned story. Perhaps some day I will dust you off and give you an appropriate ending, but until then you may be neglected.

Joined Heart; Split Soul

(08/30/2013) I have thought and thought on this one so many times that I know the ending by heart. I know what is to happen next and I know where everything goes... I'm not sure why it has been abandoned, only that I have become distracted by others that are more demanding of my attention. Perhaps one day I will finish it, but I feel as if I should let it be. My new stories deserve my attention so that they do not end up like these. To my sad story of woe... I will never forget the growth you helped me with.


(08/30/2013) This story was much too long to be turning into a fanfic from the start. It was an original idea of mine for a story that had nothing to do with Rurouni Kenshin and so if I took the time to write it completely it would be too long and take way too much time. To you, my pretty little lost story, I may finish but not here. You may have your own shelf one day, even if it is only mine.

Bad News... (07/08/2013)

Since I have become so caught up in my other stories, I am afraid that it may be time for me to give up on a few of the incomplete ones. I do not like doing this, but I am trying to be realist. It has been so long since I have started them that it probably doesn't matter much anymore. One of them I have almost written myself into a corner on, while another is much too long and involved to turn into a fanfiction and I should have seen this from the start. I apologize. The other I do wish to finish, but these new stories are distracting me and I think they will be more fun to write. I will finish A Mother's Love though. That one I will promise. The other three... might not be so lucky. Sorry.

Good News... (07/08/2013)

I have so many new ideas that I want to turn into stories and share. After writing Demon and Cursed and seeing how well the response I received from them was, I have become excited about doing another story like them. And I have so many I want to try! It's funny, because when I first started out I only liked reading canon stories, but now I have gotten to the point where I only want to write AU's. I do have a couple of fun canon stories that I want to write, but I have always been a fantasy and sci-fi fan and so my natural inclination is to lean more towards that genre. If no one will object to it, I even have story I've gotten completely engrossed in and would like to start posting on soon. The chapters are short but hold lots of info. Could be fun.
