So, I have recently come back to the fanfiction fold after a rather long hiatus from writing. I have been here all along reading, but I am sad to say that I allowed my stories to go quite a bit longer than I ever had previously without an update. I am enjoying my first free summer vacation since I left for college four years ago, and am taking the opportunity to resume writing. I will be starting what is sure to be one of the most difficult years of my life as a first year law student in the fall, so I am hoping to polish a few stories off during the remainder of the summer in the hopes that I will be left with a more manageable load, such that I can update on some kind of a reasonable time frame once law school begins.
On a distinct but related point: since returning to writing I have taken the opportunity to examine some of my old works (something I rather regret in a few cases), and like many of us I am horrified by the cringe worthy writing. Of course I was all of thirteen when most of those particular fanfics were written so perhaps it is not all that surprising. I won't delete them for two reasons. First, they are a part of my history, I wrote them and worked hard, though the writing leaves much to be desired. Second, I have experienced the dismay of seeking out fics I read years ago to discover that the author finding them cringe-worthy deleted them. So, I will leave them up for that reason, however please understand that such stories written around 2006 are certainly not my best work, and not likely to display the same quality that my more recent fics do.
Works in Progress (WIP):
A Family Affair-Nearing Completion
Behind the Smile-Ongoing
Dreaming with a Broken Heart-Nearing Completion
How Did I Fall In Love With You-Suspended
I Blame You-Ongoing
Once Upon a Starry Night-Ongoing
Life or Something Close-Ongoing
The Day the Sky Fell it Ends Tonight-Suspended
The Die Has Been Cast-Nearing Completion
The Marauders Monday Magazine-Nearing Completion
-Stories marked nearing completion are ones with clear endings mapped out and anywhere from three to twelve chapters remaining. I expect such fics to be completed by the end of this summer (August 2014)
-Stories marked ongoing have an indeterminate and lengthy number of chapters remaining. I have no expectations as to when they will wrap up.
-Stories marked suspended are on hold pending renewed reader interest. These are stories that received no reviews for their most recent chapter. Due to the nature of my schedule I try to prioritize those stories that have a lot of people waiting on them. If a story receives no reviews for a chapter I will place it on hiatus pending reviews (suspension) or until all other fics have been completed.
For the duration of the summer (2014) all stories will be updated on the following schedule:
Day 1: Life or Something Close (HB) and Behind the Smile (HP)
Day 2: Once Upon a Starry Night (HP) and I Blame You (TP)
Day 3: The Marauder's Monday Magazine (HP)
Day 4: The Die has Been Cast (HB) and A Family Affair (HB)
Day 5: Dreaming with a Broken Heart (HP)
This schedule is obviously not tied to days of the week as it is a five day schedule meaning that the day of the week will change, however the point is each story will be updated around once a week in this order. Today, July 8, 2014 will see updates on Day 1 fics, you can extrapolate from there when a particular fic will be updated.

"I doubt it will make much of a difference," said Professor McGonagall coldly, "unless a mad axe-man is waiting outside the doors to slaughter the first into the entrance hall."

Hermione and the twins: Has Ron saved a goal yet?" asked Hermione.
Oliver Wood: "Bad news, Harry. I've just been to see Professor McGonagall about the Firebolt. She – er got a bit shirty with me. Told me I'd got my priorities wrong. Seemed to think I cared more about winning the Cup than I do about staying alive. Just because I told her I didn't care if it threw you off, as long as you caught the Snitch first."

"I understand that Scissors can beat Paper, and I get how Rock can beat Scissors, but there's no way Paper can beat Rock. Paper is supposed to magically wrap around Rock leaving it immobile? Why the hell can't paper do this to scissors? Screw scissors, why can't paper do this to people? Why aren't sheets of college ruled notebook paper constantly suffocating students as they attempt to take notes in class? I'll tell you why, because paper can't beat anybody, a rock would tear it up in two seconds. When I play rock/ paper/ scissors, I always choose rock. Then when somebody claims to have beaten me with their paper I can punch them in the face with my already clenched fist and say, "oh, I'm sorry, I thought paper would protect you."
