6-17-17: Just wanted to say I am still so angry at Netflix for cancelling Sense8 and I will never get over it until we get the three more seasons we deserve lmao. Also... Companions... no updates in a year... whoops...
5-10-17: I am finally finished with college for the summer and am completely dead from season 2 of Sense8! Anyho, I've just uploaded chapter three of Resonance. Still have about a month before Companions has gone an updateless year, huh? Hopefully I make it before then.
2-2-17: Hello everyone! I've just published the first chapter of my first actual Zero Escape fanfiction, based predominantly in the spirit of 999. Please check out Resonance if you're a fan of the series! I have about ten more completed chapters to date, and the plan is to keep them coming. This will be a large story project, much like Companions, but Zero Escape has always had a more lasting and powerful place in my heart than Fire Emblem, so it will definitely take precedence. Hope you enjoy it!
9-5-16: Here we are, less than one hour shy of the anniversary of when I published Companions three years ago, and I've just finished updating all of Out of Place instead! Alas, I doubt I'll be able to crank out another chapter of Companions in time to make the date, but I'll try to do a drawing of one of the characters for my tumblr. Is it sad that when I first planned the project, I figured it would take me roughly three years to finish posting that story? Well, I'm probably only about a third of the way into it, so it seems this project will be the gift that keeps on giving... and giving... slowly...
9-4-16: It's kind of funny to think that Breaking Down is the first story I've completed in roughly five years, with the one before it being Out of Place. Alas, it's kind of cathartic to finish another multi-chapter work, especially one I've put so much heart in. If you like Final Destination and you just came to me for OoP, do consider checking out BD as well.
9-1-16: Does anyone else who's been here since adolescence ever read their old fics and cringe? Like I want to delete some of my older, abandoned ones because I am embarrassed about them, but honestly a lot of them have so many memories attached that I don't want to let go of. Like Our Story is ridiculous and I'm blushing just thinking about anyone I know reading it now, but I love how excited all of the forumites got with it, and all our inside jokes... If you're a forumite reading this at any time, please PM me and let me know how life is bc I love u.
8-27-16: I'm getting back into finishing up my renovation of Out of Place, so be on the look out for the last couple of chapters. Also, I finished Zero Time Dilemma within five days of getting it, I am emotions about it, Hopefully I can get back into Companions soon as well, but I'm just not quite sure how to get it where it's going to go in the long run. Wish me luck!
5-29-16: Whoops I accidentally started writing another major project? This time it's in the Zero Escape fandom. I've written about four chapters of it. As for the next chapter of Companions, that's a bit over halfway done as well. I definitely should have it out sometime in the next couple of weeks. Also! Thirty days to Zero Time Dilemma! I'm gonna cry forever and also die.
10-1-15: Happy Halloween everyone. To celebrate this amazing spooky month, I've added the character profiles for Breaking Down to the bonus content section. Hope you've enjoyed act one; look out for the first chapter of act two soon!
9-12-15: Today is one of the Companions' birthdays. Happy birthday Bjorn! To commemorate this, I drew him, which is a big deal, considering I haven't drawn a Companions character in over a year. Alas, there is no new chapter today. Enjoy instead a new story in the Final Destination fandom! I've also gone through and deleted maybe five or six of my stories from like 2008 that were very short, poorly thought out, had low quality writing, and would never be continued. I'm sure y'all won't mind. Additionally (boy am I busy today) I've decided to revamp Out of Place, so look forward to chapters being updated and made more readable! Chapter one is up now, and chapter two is in the works.
7-17-15: I've fallen deep into a new fandom, Steven Universe. Did you all know that I am literally Sapphire.
4-4-15: So I've been working on the next chapter of Companions, and I decided now is as good a time as any to post two of the documents I'll be working on as extra material for your enjoyment. Currently, there are two: a chart of everyone's current stats and a list of support-compatible pairs with the paralogues that each of their supports come in. Enjoy!
2-12-15: Yikes guess who's really bad at updating? This is literally my first news bulletin since before I started college. Basically I love college! But I am hard pressed to get into that mood where I really want to write. About a month ago, the night before I came back from home, I wrote a good portion of the next chapter of Companions, but it's still not near done. I promise it will happen eventually, so please bear with me!
2-22-14: Happy birthday to my favorite men from Dangan Ronpa and Fire Emblem: Nidai and Brady! I love those guys. In other news, thanks to a certain Holly (Chuggaahawkholly) I decided to rename myself as JoshJepsdon. If everyone got an LPer pun username, that would be. Legit.
9-6-13: Yep, the Fire Emblem story is here. Expect more, maybe for serious this time!
9-5-13: So perhaps maybe I actually am getting back into story writing? A few new fandoms and a Creative Writing course have inspired me into preparing you guys a lovely Fire Emblem: Awakening story. Additionally, at this point I have refurbished my profile, maturing its language and getting rid of all the facepalm-worthy news updates of my adolescence. You're welcome. I also just realized that at some point in the last few months, due to my obsession with Dangan Ronpa and fear that the name DonPianta was just verbatim from Mario, I have changed to LeonPianta.
6-8-11: I didn't think I'd stay JetCordFTW for so long. Ah well, I'm Don again.
4-26-11: ...First post of 2011... Anyway, I've totally refurbished my profile. My stories remain the same, yet I've edited peoples' names and cut down the copy/paste section. Also, in light of the recent turn of events on The Amazing Race 18, I've changed my penname from DonPianta to JetCordFTW for a while. And I have the pic to accompany it.
12-28-08: I have closed my poll for Amazing Race, and I, with the help of six voters, have chosen our twelve teams! Here they are:
Boo and Dry Bones- Best Friends-- 4 votes out of 7
I hope you enjoy the teams! This will be starting soon!
Stories are numbered in order posted on site.
These are stories that I am either working on or at least giving active thought to their progress in some way.
12. Companions - Waking up in a feudal land is a major bummer, especially when you aren't Robin, or if you have to give up part of your identity to survive. Is it worth changing to fit in and fight? Chapters: 17. Fire Emblem (Awakening).
14. Nonary Game: Resonance - A college student named Robin awakens in a mysterious classroom, having been kidnapped earlier for participation in the Nonary Game. He joins with eight other participants, and together they solve puzzles, piece together a mystery involving lives beyond their own, and, perhaps most importantly, seek a way out. Chapters: 5. 9 Hours 9 Persons 9 Doors.
Stories on Hiatus
Most of these hiatuses are indefinite, so expect nothing.
1. Who Goes On? - Twelve Mushroom Kingdom citizens enter into a ridiculous game show to try winning one million dollars. Chapters: 3. Mario.

11. Final Nine - An alternate universe where the nine players in the Nonary Game from 999 are the last living tributes in the Hunger Games. Chapters: 1. Hunger Games/9 Hours 9 Persons 9 Doors.
Due to how difficult it is to take an idea to completion, most of these happen to be one-shots. Alas, all are finished products, never again to be touched (probably). They're ordered by completion instead of numerically.
