Updates (five most recent)
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! If you want to follow along with what I'm doing in the absence of fic, head to my tumblr blogs: hexephra (my main blog) and hextier (my art blog).
June 28th, 2014: Yeah, I don't really exist here anymore. So many other projects have taken up my time that I haven't really found the drive to get back to L.U.S.T. I'm not calling it dropped yet, but don't hold your breath.
Sept 4th, 2013: Hey kiddos! I have a job now. I know updates have been slow lately as I've still been busy as well as having trouble writing, but this could affect the speed further. Don't know yet. I'll keep you posted if I can.
July 23rd, 2013: I'm finished university! Unfortunately that does not mean I'm less busy. I've found time to write here and there, but things are still pretty slow.
April 11th, 2013: In light of a few messages I've gotten lately, I figured it was worth making a note here that the reason I haven't updated lately is because I'm busy with uni work. If you want the full rant it's on my tumblr, but suffice to say I don't know how often I'll be able to update. Asking will basically get you an uninformative answer.
A sort of FAQ thing (last updated Sept 4th, 2013)
WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO UPDATE?
Are you going to do a sequel for Two Face like you said you might?
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?
Can I make fanart, fanfic, or podfic of your fic?
How do you moderate anonymous reviews?
I guessed one of your sketch questions right and you promised me art! Where's my art?
I'm working on a fic! Will you beta for me/read my WIP/first chapter/whole fic and help me out?
Okay, but what if I just have a small question about grammar or characterization?
Can you put a link to my fic in your next author's notes?
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.
I found a couple of mistakes in your fic, but otherwise it's good.
Call me RF! I'm a 22-year-old female Canadian animator. SasuNaru is the pairing that got me into shipping, and I automatically attribute all aspects of romance/love to them, so the vast majority of my writing will be for that pairing. I've written them for so long that I know them much better than any other character out there. On the downside, they've also developed in my mind beyond what could be considered in-character for the canon story, but because of that path they still feel in-character for me. This means I sometimes struggle to keep them in-character in a way that everyone agrees with.
I'm hoping to turn my focus to original characters and stories, as well as continuing to explore the world of fanfiction. I'm also an avid Homestuck and hope to write fics for that someday too.
I seem to have a tendency to write a lot of PWPs and the occasional long story. I tend to distinguish between "Porn Without Plot" and "Plot With Porn." Sometimes I write one-shots that involve lemons as a significant event, but there's still plot involved. Other times I just write plotless smut for the lulz. Lately, however, I've been finding lemons more difficult to write in an interesting way. Soon I'm going to have to stop using them as a crutch to support all my not-quite-plot-ful story ideas.
As for the longer stories, they typically range between ten thousand and... uh, over 300,000 words. Cough.
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 FF.net allows full links! Copy and paste them into your browser's address bar to view.
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.
