February 19, 2011: Unfortunately, not only do I lack the time to write, now I've lost the inspiration as well. I would love to get back into the fandom; I just need a kick start. Still more than happy to beta. Hit me up.
Before We're Left With Nothing: TMNT one-shot. I originally meant to vent my frustration, outrage and disgust at someone's opinion of a roadside memorial near my home. A driver tried to beat the red light and ended up slamming into another car. The second driver wasn't hurt too badly, but the man who caused the accident lost his life. Shortly afterward a memorial was set up for him near the intersection. One day I overheard someone say that the memorial shouldn't be allowed to remain. This person said that it was the man's "own d%&* fault" that he died, and he could have easily killed the other driver with his "stupidity." This very opinionated person implied that the man didn't deserve to be memorialized. Yes, the man's choice was the cause of his own death. Yes, the other driver could have been injured so much worse. But does that mean this man's family and friends shouldn't be allowed to grieve? That he must have just been out of control and reckless and that society is better off now? I originally meant to place Raphael in my situation so that I could vent my own passionate feelings through him (and maybe rough up that opinionated individual a bit). But the more I thought about it, the more I realized that ranting and raving just wouldn't cut it. The story evolved into something very different from my real-life experience, but much of what I took from that experience still remains. Posted here and on SS.
I Thought You Were the Rain: TMNT 100-word drabble. April/Raph drama/romance (sort of). This just spilled out of me while trying to combat some wicked writer's block on "Before We're Left With Nothing." (It didn't really help, btw.) I always knew drabbles were supposed to be hard, but jeez! Talk about a challenge. However, it came out better than anticipated, so I'm happy. :D Posted here and on SS.
Observations: TMNT one-shot. I had a fantastic time writing this one, especially the dialogue. I've seriously considered writing a companion piece and/or a sequel. I have a few ideas for both, mostly for the companion piece that would focus on Leo and Mikey's night on the same mission. We'll see... ;) Posted here and on SS.
Cold Blooded: TMNT poem. Nominated for BEST POETRY in the 2007 Stealthy Stories Fanfic Competition! It was months in the making, and really evolved over time. The final project is almost on the opposite end of the spectrum from the original concept; it wasn't meant to be nearly so dark. I've noticed some differing opinions on whose POV this is. I won't say here, but you can PM me if you'd like. Posted here and on SS.
Evil?: A Separate Peace ficlet. I'm trying to decide whether to take it down to rework it (since it's atrocious) or leave it up to gauge my progress. For now it looks like this piece is not going anywhere.
