“I WRITE. I IMAGINE. THE ACT OF IMAGINING IN ITSELF ENLIVENS ME. I AM NOT FROZEN AND PARALYZED BEFORE THE PREDATOR. I INVENT CHARACTERS. AT TIMES I FEEL AS IF I AM DIGGING UP PEOPLE FROM THE ICE IN WHICH REALITY ENSHROUDED THEM, BUT MAYBE, MORE THAN ANYTHING ELSE, IT IS MYSELF THAT I AM DIGGING UP." David Grossman
"CONSIDER YOUR ORIGIN. YOU WERE NOT FORMED TO LIVE LIKE BRUTES BUT TO FOLLOW VIRTUE AND KNOWLEDGE", (Considerate la vostra semenza: nati non foste per viver come bruti, ma per seguir virtute e conoscenza), Dante Alighieri

Few links about me:
My channel on YouTube:(some Enos/Daisy vids, and a lot of AMVs)... Ehm... looking at my favourite videos you could understand something more 'bout what I like.
Here's some picture of Enos/Daisy I worked to: a mix of real pictures in "anime-style". A sort of "behind the scene" of Enos and Daisy... or some hints for new fanfics... or simply... well... Enos/Daisy relationship in my personal view. Images I use as covers of my stories are from this collection ;-)) so, if you like my covers, go and look at the whole collection!!

01/23/2013: Along this month I started a sort of ... ehm.. renovation of my oldest stories. It's impressing how many people, even now, read those stories (I know it by my stories' stats). I don't now if these readers are new readers (starting from my last story, enjoying it and then going back to my oldest ones... and it'd be a good thing, 'cause it means they are interested of my stories and of my style) or if these readers are old readers needing to read, sometimes, these old stories (a good thing, it means these stories touched the readers... or a bad thing, if these readers prefer my oldest stories to my recent ones... it means I've lost something along the road).
Re-writing these old stories I'm not rejecting them, not at all, but the contrary. I miss that spirit, and I want to give them a new life, not changing the spirit in them but improving the grammar and the style as more as possible.
I'm re-installing these stories adding a brief author's note at the end, explaing what I changed or simply what I thought/felt when I was writing that story.
SOMETHING ABOUT "CARRY THAT WEIGHT": it's the most complex, sad and psychological story I've ever written. I think, somehow, it's too much psychological and sad, with few action in it. I decided to follow this path of "psychological analysis", "relationship between characters" (all the characters, not only Enos and Daisy, even if the story is obviously more focused on them), and of "growth" (exploring Enos' past, the reason why he is the way he is, sense of family and friendship, sense of identity, way to face a grief, and so on), even if a bit complicated and, to some extent, maybe boring. An experiment, a difficult and maybe awkward experiment, writing something so totally new for me, so I'm sorry if I've disappointed my oldest readers with something so different from my past stories, but after various doubts 'bout quitting I've decided to complete it.
SOMETHING ABOUT "SHATTERED"
This story is focused on Enos' personality and how it can deal with a violent and corrupted world. So, on his being a COP and what it means to him: an honest and idealist cop (I've always loved this side of him, beside his clumsiness and shyness). Is Los Angeles, the big and violent L.A., the right city for him? Can he endure it despite his honesty and idealism? It'll be a rude and strong experience, for him, but the story will be set in Hazzard after Enos' coming back, so only some flashbacks here and there to explain what happened to him in L.A. (but at the end you'll have a complete picture) whereas the most part of the story will be more centered on Enos' recover, thanks to his beloved Daisy and his best friends... and thanks to ALL Hazzard, too.
I tried to involve ALL the characters (I hope in the best way) and to not betray DOH's positive, friendly and loving atmosphere, and characters, despite the strong and rough topic I'm exploring. It's a story about the meaning of being a cop, a story about honesty, duty and idealism.
01/2014 SOMETHING ABOUT ME Reborn as i1976 - blu notte.
I've started last year, 2013, rewriting my old stories, and it was really useful to me. Thanks of this rewriting, I managed to write the stories I more proud of: "Carry that weight" and "Shattered". I think that in these stories there's my final "perspective" of Hazzard, a perspective I developed along years.
Now, with "Missed chance" I'm simply having fun, I admit: a collection of dreams, flashbacks and new scenes (a way to enter, again, Enos and Daisy's mind). For sure it's a story more simple than "Carry that weight" and "Shattered"... unless I'll decide to complicate it :-) I just want to let this story flow, with no schedule: I'll decide what to write chapter after chapter, following my instict.
I'm proud of "Carry that weight" and "Shattered" also 'cause they were written after I decided to free myself by things I felt choking me: I value just one thing, in life, and it's honesty, especially honesty in human relationships, honesty to ourselves and honesty to others. I've realized I can't choke my emotional pattern and my individuality in order to please others, 'cause it's not honest to myself nor to others. I've realized that l can't lie, 'cause lies destroy everything: if someones lies to you, and you found out his lie, you won't be able to trust him anymore, everything else he'll say or everything he's said previously, for you, will be a lie (even if it isn't). I've realized that it's a lot better to walk alone along your path, being yourself and just yourself, than walk with others along paths paved of hypocrisy and opportunism, being just a ghost and wearing a mask (I'm not a mask and I don't want masks around me).
"Carry that weight" and "Shattered", so, are not only my final perspective of Hazzard, but also a collection of thoughts beside the plot (I've wondered a lot about trust, idealism, honesty, identity, friendship, family, justice, and so on, in these stories). THANKS to any of you who is STILL reading these stories, even now!! Thanks, thanks, thanks. I sincerely hope you're enjoying them! :-)
My new nick, blu notte, is also due to this sort of "rebirth" after freeing myself of a sort of weight and after closing some doors. I was forgetting who I am, what I like the most, what I want to write and WHY I write. Now, I'm finally back.
I want to THANK people who have supported me along these years, by reviews (sincere reviews), P.M.s, adding me to their favs/alerts list.
I hope to keep on writing along this new year (and also in the future), improving more and more and giving you better and better stories. I just want to have fun, enjoy myself (with you) and find my style. Finally and totally FREE, myself: :-) - BLUNOTTE
ABOUT MY STORIES IN GENERAL
I'm a huge Enos/Daisy fan, LOL, so, if you're going to read my stories, well, you'll find just Enos/Daisy stories, romantic stories. Sorry, I can't give you anything else.
I like happy endings, no tragedies, though I like, from time to time, to write some drama.
I confess: I write just for pleasure (my pleasure is in the writing in itself), so I write just what gives me joy: it means fluff (OOOHHH yeah, LOL), slice of life, friendship and love. If I write something dramatic it's just to point out friendship and love even more. I start with drama just to move to positive emotions from it; I like to write of "destruction", sometimes, just to focus on recover (and this rebuilding/recover, swallowing the bad, is the goal of my stories). I CAN'T write something too much sad, 'cause it really saddens me... poor me :-)
I just try to write positive stories (centered on Enos and Daisy), for you and for me, recalling Hazzard's positive and friendly spirit. I just hope to make you smile, along my stories, and have a good time... despite some dramatic and sad scenes here and there. Good read :-)
