Author has written 12 stories for Final Fantasy VII.
This beautiful piece of fan art was done by 191026, aka Lesley. I let her read a snippet of the ending of Break Down, and she came up with this picture.
I think she has captured the most wonderful expression on Cloud's face. Even as he is being driven away to safety, there is indecision showing in his eyes, a look of longing. And even the wind, caressing his longer locks, makes it appear as if his hair were waving a farewell of its own.
Well, it's been quite a long time since anyone last heard from me, but I am pleased to announce that the sequel to Break Down is almost complete! Is that whoops of joy I hear? Lol
I can't say that it is quite as dark as the first episode, as our two fav boys are dealing with coming to terms with each other, but I can tell you it's still no fluffy bunny saga. Like its predecessor, there is the promise of much dark stuff, and of course yummy yaoi.
As some of you are aware, I've 'lost' my precious guinea-pig, Stephy, to the perils of real life... dammit... and so I am the one who has to not only write the story, but also to go back over my work correcting and editing, and correcting and editing, and etc, etc. I am my own worse critic, need I say anymore, hence why it has taken so long to get in a comfortable enough position to declare that my progress is at last seeing the light at the end of the tunnel.
Twenty-seven chapters have been edited to my best ability so far, with six more written ones needing my attention, and from there it will be just pinning down my muses long enough to write the last few finishing chapters and tada!
I am really looking forward to seeing if any of my old regulars are still about, and still interested in Cloud and Seph, and of course I'm very excited about meeting new readers who hopefully will enjoy my new story just as much. So, until I begin posting... Happy reading and writing everyone :D
WISH ME LUCK, AND KEEP YOUR FINGERS CROSSED, PLEASE!
I am so pleased!! Two of my stories have been nominated by MK-KM for the Genesis Awards. Obsession, and An Ode To The One I Love. I'll know if they make it in to the finals by April 15th, and the overall winners are to be announed on June 15th. Good luck to all my competitors too!
Just being nominated is an honour for me. Thank you so, so much Mitch and Kay. It's so heart warming to me to know that writers of your calibur have faith in my works. And...update Someday already, lol.
Well...the sad update to this is... I don't think I won anything. It's now July 17th, and I've heard not even so much as a whisper from anyone about whether or not I was successful.
Anyway...to those who did win...CONGRATULATIONS!
I absolutely adore reading well written stories. The kind that drags the reader in and grips them by the throat. The one's that make you fall in love with the characters and feel their pain, their sorrow, their joy. They don't have to be word perfect. They don't even have to have flawless spelling. You just know when a story is good by the passion the writer puts into their work.
I have found several writers like this. One's who make me practically beg on hands and knees for updates to their stories. And I've added their names here so you too can read and enjoy their wonderful works of written art. Please be aware that I am an avid yaoi lover, and all of the stories that you see here will contain male/male loving, unless stated clearly otherwise.
So, if you have some time you want to spend in excellent company, go grab yourself a drink of choice, settle yourself down, and read to your hearts content...
This is a link to the works of mk-km. Mitch and Kay. Two fantastic writers who also do their own wonderful artwork for their stories. I have been blessed with being gifted several pieces of fan art from Kay...Kiss, thank you Kay! Their stories are mainly original works, and almost all of them contain angst and dark themes. They are not afraid to take the reader on a roller coaster ride of emotions...so make sure you have tissues at the ready!
This is the link to their webpage, where you can see Kay's fantastic art for yourself, and also get to read more of their work.
This is the link to their stories here on FanFiction. Two of the stories are of Final Fantasy VII, one of which is dedicated to me! Insert proud grin here, lol
And yet another link to some more of their work. Damn, I wish I had their muses, lol.
This a link to Eszter's work here on Fanfiction. A truly amazing writer, this talented lady really does know how to weave beautiful images into her words. Which is fantastic, when you realise that English isn't her first language. She too is also a stunning artist, and has also gifted me with works of fan art, my most prized possession being the original copy she posted to me for Christmas. Pride of place on my wall Eszter...pride of place, lol. Kiss.
Eszter's work is based on fan fiction, from Ai no Kusabi and Final Fantasy VII, with a sexy little number from Predator added in just for good measure lol.
This is the link to a writer here at Fanfiction that knows how to get the butterflies in your tummy working overtime! It always astounds me how Ray can get your pulse rate beating faster with only a few choice, chosen words.
If Devil May Cry is your forte, or if you love Inuyasha, Dragon Ball Z, Gundam Wing, Harry Potter or even Lord of the Rings, take a gander at Ray's work. There is something for everyone there. You'll even find the link for Family, the story I am honoured to be co-writing with her.
This is the link to DrkDreamers original story, Nicea. It is about the life of a young Roman boy, sold into slavery on his eleventh birthday to save his family from ruin. It is a dark, hard story to read. DrkDreamer tells it how it would have been, no if's, no but's, no maybe's. She makes no excuses for keeping it real, and that's what makes her an excellent story writer, in my opinion.
Please be aware, that DrkDreamer will be taking Nicea down on March 24th, 2009, for re-editing. There is no promise made that she will be putting it back up. So hurry to read it now, while you still can. Or forever kick yourself for missing out on a wonderful story!
And this is the link to DrkDreamers fan fiction stories based on Ai no Kusabi. Again, don't go expecting light and fluffy yaoi. If you love angst, (like me) you'll love these...
Yay, DrkDreamer has started putting up another original story. It's called Collateral Damage, and tells the harsh harrowing tale of young would-be-priest, Talya, and his enforced slavery. Caught hiding away during the taking of the Temple, he is 'given' to Micah, the leader of the Grogeni army that attacked. Like all of DrkDreamer's stories, it is harsh and cruel, but so well written you cannot but help want to keep reading more.
Whooo hoooo. DrkDreamer has taken the bull by the horns, and has started her very own webpage. It is still very much in its infancy, so please be gentle with her while she's still learning the basics and layouts. It is well worth a visit though, as you will be treated to chapters of amazing stories posted there...with the promise of more being added the better she becomes at navigating the choppy waters of the internet. Good luck, DrkDreamer!
Sadly, DrkDreamer has taken down a lot of her other work. Which is a real shame as they were all brilliant stories. Who knows, hopefully one day she will put them back up again.
LATEST NEWS ON DRKDREAMER!
One of DrkDreamer's stories is to be published! Yay, well done!! Will give more info as and when I know more. I DO know the story is a cracking one...
Also, thanks to DrkDreamers help, I have been given a 'job' at SL Publishing, as an editor. There is no money paid for the work I do, but there were other carrots dangled before me that I agreed to, lol.
This is the link to Katica's page at Fiction Press. Such a shame you all missed out on reading her original Once A Slave story. I was lucky enough to get in at the beginning, and let me tell you, I am one of the happiest people in the world that it's been accepted to be published! Which is the reason why she's had to take it down...Damn publishers, lol. She has left up teaser chapters though, so you'll get a taste for her character Lark, and his wonderful world.
She also has other original work to read at that link too. I'll have to get myself on over there I think. Looks like I have some catching up to do, lol.
UPDATE ON KATICA
Katica has had her brilliant story, Magebound, (Once A Slave) published. And, she sent me my very own copy!! And... (heart bursting with joy and pride...) she mentioned me in the dedication and personally signed the inside for me as well. I am so, so happy for her. I always said her story was worthy of being published. It's like a dream come true, for the both of us.
What can I say about this author, other than just how amazing she is! So versatile. From her you will find not only original works of art, but also fan fics from Buffy and Harry Potter... not to mention the many, many others she's written for tv shows and movies. Yes, there IS yaoi in among her stories, but many of them contain male/female loving too...Like I said, she truly is amazing.
Sadly, Scribe seems to have stopped updating the stories at her AdultFanFiction site, which is a real shame as I would have loved to have known what happened at the end of Genteel Obsession. But DON'T let that put you off. Personally, I think it might be a lack of readers leaving reviews there, which is so discouraging. Even I have been disheartened with the very poor response my stories got there. Not like this site, eh...where it feels more like hearing from my favourite friends when I get a review... :)
This link will take you straight to Scribes personal webpage. Again, sadly, no updates appear to be happening there. But again, don't let that put you off. There are lots more stories to read there, lots more to whet your appetite. She really does have a section for everyone! My personal favourite story on this site is Sabine Woman. It's complete, so no worrying about how it ends on that one. And it's male/female, so cookies to her for keeping my interest going. Just shows this lady's talent.
And lastly, Scribe's LiveJournal account, where things do actually get updated.
Hello! You've come to this page because you'd like to know a little bit about me, huh?
Well I'm female, have been for as long as I can remember.
I live on a little island called England, which is nice.
My hobbies are reading, (fav author Agatha Christie, have all 78 of her crime novels!) crosswords, logic puzzle solving and cross-stitching! God, how boring does that sound? Lmao. Oh, I've even had a dabble at water colouring, but...I'll stick to story writing I think.
I love Final Fantasy, needless to say, and I have all the games except for #11, simply because I don't want to play on-line. My favourite one is #10, but only because they talk. The storyline is better on #7! And yay...I finally got my hands on a copy of Final Fanstasy #3!! How neat is that? Mind you, I had to sweet-talk my hubby into buying me a Ninedo Ds Lite just to get the game...He is sooo good to me. And, once Crisis Core hits our shores, I'll be kissing my way to a PSP too, lol...
My pet hate is flies. I can't stand them, they freak me out, yuk! And I prefer silver to gold...don't worry, long standing argument with my other half! About the only thing we ever argue about, lol.
Anyway, my latest craze, writing wise, is yaoi...I simply love it! Now, if I could only be as good as P. L. Nunn at it, I would be a happy author lol...I highly recommend her Bloodraven story...Still, if you read one of my yaoi stories, and you just happen to like it, please...feel free to leave me a review and say so...its all encouragement! And I do try to reply to each and every reviewer personally...unless you happen to be named Anon...I can never seem to find that person!
So, I hope I've enlightened you somewhat as to what makes me...Me! Thank you for showing an interest.
