Author has written 29 stories for Kodomo No Omocha, Ranma, D N Angel, Harry Potter, and Code Geass.
Hello! I also go by NaruKoibito in the Harry Potter fandom, but since I started out as Lady Lithe originally (pre-HP), I'm a bit reluctant to change it on .
I'm NaruKoibito on AO3 and tumblr.
I haven't updated my profile since 2008, and for a long time, I wasn't sure I would ever return. I promised in April 2008 to return and finish all my stories. That was my intention (I even wrote the beginnings of stories and chapters that I never posted), but I shouldn't have made promises that I clearly couldn't keep.
A few months ago, I randomly decided to reread some of my work and was pleasantly surprised. Don't get me wrong, I cringed a lot to plenty of it, but some were surprisingly good for my teenage self. I was so far removed, it was like having a conversation with my past self, who could write so freely and with such joy. I've since really re-immersed myself in Harry/Ginny (my one true pairing) and Harry Potter fandom. I'm trying to write again, which is amazing to me, considering I haven't written fiction in over a decade.
I may try to revisit some of my old stories, but I know better than to make another promise that I'm not confident I can keep. I'm really touched by some people who keep finding my stories, and someone who reviewed a story that I cringe at today, saying she has been checking for years, hoping I would update. It's astounding that anyone could feel that way about something I wrote.
A status on my incomplete works at the moment:
Faded From the Winter: Maybe a total rewrite.
Truthfully, I don't see myself being able to update this story in its current state. The characters feel too out of character, being pushed towards a plot in my head rather than what they would actually do. I also cringe at my OC, who falls a bit flat to me today. I still am drawn to the idea of the story, though, but if I were to revisit, I'd probably rewrite the whole thing, changing who some of these characters are (for example, I likely would replace Dean and Lain with characters that make more sense).
The Red String: Most likely abandoned.
I found chapter three pretty much already written, but I'm not sure about posting. I could, it's just that I don't remember where I was planning to go with the story, and I'm not so interested in it anymore.
Paper Plane: Most likely abandoned.
Oh, my young self who loved angst! (I still do.) Sigh, I found chapter 6 on my old, old computer, but I'm not sure it's worth posting since I have no idea why Harry did what he did anymore. I have no idea where Ginny's mindset is. The story doesn't make sense to me anymore. I may try to write another story on the same premise, but I don't see myself picking this one up again.
The Artifice of Night: Maybe I'll continue to write.
I actually quite like this story when I reread it and even started to write some of it again. But there are some things I had originally planned around Ginny and Harry that I don't know if I like anymore. I'd also have to figure out the whole world again. I may just write another story, but we shall see.
Merged Moments & Sweet Days of Summer: Abandoned.
These were fun spin-offs of Matchless Match (my favorite out of all my old stories), but they're not as strong as the original, which stands fine on its own.
