I figured it's about time I revamped my profile, since it's been four years. To start with, I'll provide the basics. I'm a 23 year old university student in Canada, and my student status is the main reason I've been inactive on here for so long. I'm still writing, and I still love my fandoms, but I'm working on two very time-intensive degrees (as well as 2 jobs,) and simply don't have the time I had to write like I did years ago.
I stumbled across fanfiction completely by accident in 2006, and met some truly amazing people through this website. It was a huge part of my life for a long time, and I honed my writing skills on here. I owe a lot of my improvements to constructive criticism received on this website, and am very grateful to each and every person who reviewed my stories. I cringe when I read a lot of my LWD fanfiction from years ago, and have dabbled with the idea of removing it, but I still get notifications and reviews, indicating that people are still active in this fandom. It is because of this that I have decided to keep my past work up. I was barely in high school when I wrote most of it, so please keep this in mind when you read my cringeworthy grammatical mistakes and general lack of life experience. I have taken every single review on my stories to heart, and have tried to build upon tips and criticisms and further my writing. I don't believe you can ever perfect writing as a skill, and it is because of this that I love having the opportunity to keep on learning. I have loved writing stories since I was old enough to understand the concept of creating stories, and I probably always will.
I do have a FictionPress account, which is generally just some revamped, original versions of storylines I created on here. Characters and circumstances are different, the writing was improved (although at this point, could use improvement also.) The username is: .Eternal.Romance. if you would like to check out some of my work over there.
To answer some frequently asked questions:
1. Where can I find your LWD story, "Through the Haze" ? It is listed on your profile and the sequel is available, but I can't find the original.
Long story short, I deleted that story. I really loved the plotline and decided to revamp it as an original fic, because I felt it deserved better writing than I was able to give it when I was 16 years old. I still have the original version on my computer, and I have a better written version, also. It just isn't available on here anymore. If you really and truly want to read it, send me a message and we'll figure something out. I am considering posting the revamped version, but not sure how useful that would be.
UPDATE: I have now begun to re-post the story, edited and hopefully for the better.
2. In some of your stories, I notice there are names missing, and time passes without a distinguished mark indicating a different scene beginning.
Unfortunately, FF.net changed some of it's guidelines a few years back, and at the time that I posted my stories, I had the nasty habit of writing names without putting a space in the proper place. (i.e., Mr. Venturi, without the space between the period and the last name.) For whatever reason, FF protects against that type of mistake now by editing out the entire word, which explains the gaps and missing names. It's annoying, yes, I know, and I would love to be able to fix it. But I would have to go back through every single document of every single chapter (and if you've read my work, you know I always have a lot of chapters.) It is very time consuming. The lack of distinction between scene changes is explained in the same way. I was sixteen, and indicated a new scene by putting breaks between scenes with hyphens, and FF has since worked that out of publication also, leaving paragraphs that don't seem to flow together. Again, I apologize.
If you would like to message me, please don't hesitate! I love chatting with anyone on here. And hey, if you have a Tumblr, head on over there and follow me. I generally follow back, and I'm very active on there. www.wayward-fandoms.tumblr.com ! Cheers, guys.
