Jul 1, 2017: Mmm well I figured I'd mention here that I don't really see myself coming back to writing fics, and if I do it probably won't be under this pseudonym. Life's gone on, things have changed, interests have wandered. Thanks to everyone who supported me over the years!

Aug 2nd, 2015: No, I'm not here to update. I just noticed the art links in my profile were broken, so I fixed them. Honestly I don't see myself coming back to L.U.S.T. Any messages asking me to update it will be ignored. Other messages regarding it or anything else are fine. I still get email notifications on reviews and PMs, so don't be shy!

A sort of FAQ thing (last updated Sept 4th, 2013)

I don't know. I'm typically very busy and often have writer's block. Every chapter in my author's notes I try to include a quick explanation of what's going on in my life, and you can usually find slightly more up-to-date information on my tumblr (username ravenandfox), but circumstances change quickly and I can't predict everything. Please be patient!

Are you going to do a sequel for Two Face like you said you might?
No. At this point Two Face is far enough in my past that it's no longer my focus, and the more I look at it the more I see its flaws. If you really want to know what happens, there's a quickly written epilogue on my tumblr. The reason it isn't uploaded on FFN is because I'm not happy with the quality of writing, but as events go it's pretty solid. Just check the "Two Face" tag on my blog (not on tumblr's main tag search; that would be significantly harder to find) and it should be there.

I've read all of L.U.S.T. and I still don't know what it stands for! Are you ever going to tell us?
It's in there! The full version of the acronym is stated, in exact words, in chapter eleven. Look more closely!

Can I make fanart, fanfic, or podfic of your fic?
Absolutely! Please link me when you're done so I can love you forever and post a link in the fic too!

How do you moderate anonymous reviews?
I respect people's opinions and cherish criticism, and I will approve pretty much any anonymous review. The only things I refuse to approve are a] groundless flames with no real relevance to the story and b] hate speech and anything that's offensive towards minorities or otherwise. I might amend this later but I really hope there's nothing else out there that I have to filter. In addition, if you ask me a question through an anonymous review, I really hope you don't expect me to answer. You can send me a PM here or, if you absolutely must be anonymous, send me an ask on tumblr, which I can reply to publicly if anonymous and publicly or privately if not.

I guessed one of your sketch questions right and you promised me art! Where's my art?
Eek! I probably forgot. Please please pester me about it until I get it done! I'm terrible about this kind of thing! I should make a list of things I owe people.

I'm working on a fic! Will you beta for me/read my WIP/first chapter/whole fic and help me out?
Sorry, I won't be taking any beta or reading requests.

Can you put a link to my fic in your next author's notes?
I will post links to relevant stuff - works based off my own, works that inspired me, stuff like that - but I'm a writer, not a billboard. My fics are not a place for advertisement.

Common Comments in Reviews: There are some types of comments I get over and over again in my reviews. My answer doesn't often change for these. See below if you're considering saying one of the following:

Sasuke and Naruto do X in your fic, so it's a SasuNaru and not a NaruSasu like you said.
For one thing, I barely differentiate between the two anymore; I use "SasuNaru" as a catch-all term. For another, while you may believe that sex is the sole indicator of whose name ought to be first in the pairing, I don't feel the same way. To me, if it must be distinguished, it depends on whose personality is more dominant.

I found a couple of mistakes in your fic.
Thank you for letting me know! I'd appreciate if you could point me to said mistakes specifically. I usually don't revisit published fics to comb for errors. If you could tell me specifically where and what the error is, it'll make things a lot easier for me.

Artwork (last updated September 5th, 2011 fixed links Aug 2 2015)

Now and then I issue mini challenges to my readers wherein, if they identify the source of a reference I use in one of my stories (usually chapter titles), they get to request a sketch from me. And sometimes I just draw fanart for the fun of it. I'll collect them here because it seems to be the only place where allows full links! Copy and paste them into your browser's address bar to view.

Challenge: guess where the title for chapter 13 of L.U.S.T. came from.
Answer: Say (All I Need) by OneRepublic
Winner: Capricorn989
Request: Takeshi and Shiroi doing whatever. I sketched them on the subway in Japan thanks to being inspired by my travels. (The one drawn in blue is Shiroi; the red one is Takeshi.)

Link Sketch of what my OC Yamashita Katsumi, a.k.a. Blue, looks like.

Link After a post I made on tumblr on whether a fic ought to be called SasuNaru and NaruSasu just because of who topped, this felt apt.

Link I featured this quick sketch in my blog. It's the design of the fox pendant Sasuke wears in Two Face. I haven't drawn the raven one yet.

Link and Link These weren't challenge rewards, but rather just quick sketches of raven!Sasuke and fox!Naruto following my fanfic "Erogenous." I did these in pen in about ten minutes each, and with the intent of killing time rather than actually producing art, so there are stupid mistakes that, yes, I am aware of.

Challenge: Guess who Araragi in Two Face is named after.
Answer: Araragi Koyomi, the main character in the anime Bakemonogatari
Winner: karida4
Request: Sasuke and Naruto as ANBU

Challenge: Guess the name of the song Naruto and Sasuke are singing at the club in chapter 95 of Two Face. (I gave two hints: one, that it's somewhat related to Bakemonogatari, and two, that it's by the artist supercell.)
Answer: LOVE & ROLL
Winner: HimekoUchia
Request: anything SasuNaru, so I did a quick fight scene.

Challenge: Guess the source of the title for "Gotcha Stuck In My Elevator."
Answer: It's a little bit derived, but it comes from the song Elevator by Flo-Rida.
Winner: Ruka-x3
Request: a SasuNaru Shippuuden kiss

Challenge: Guess the source of the title of chapter 61 in Two Face, "Dancer In the Street."
Answer: It's the name of a track in the soundtrack for the game Subarashiki Kono Sekai, also known as The World Ends With You.
Winner: musa uchiha
Request: SasuNaru sketch
