Hello, ff.net. It's been a very long time since I've used you.

For reasons unbeknownst to me, I have decided to use this again. I considered making a new account since there's such a huge gap in my posting (I write this on January 12, 2011, and my last fanfiction was uploaded on June 16, 2005). I considered deleting all of my old stuff. But I didn't really want to do either of those things.

So...when you read my stuff, please note the date stamps, yes? :D
