Author has written 11 stories for Pet Shop of Horrors.
Welcome to my profile. It’s long and it looks boring. But you might find something of interest in here nevertheless, so have a look around, take a seat and get yourself a cookie. Something might be worth your while.
It's not that I'm not writing. It's just that I'm not writing a lot for PSoH at the moment, is all. However, I'm trying to do at least the one or other piece in between. If someone thinks I might be in need of a beta and he/she would be the perfect person to do it - feel free to mail me. Really. I'm in need of one.
Someone posted an anonymous review for Unchangeable that I'd like to answer. Since that's not possible where the review is posted, I'll do it here...
...i think i wanna more Ten/Jill now. How are a kitsune and a human with a baby gonna manage? How will our Jill avoid being sued for child molesting? Anyway...
I'd like to write more Ten/Jill if I could come up with a good idea, and those seem to be avoiding me lately. But I'm rather curious about how they'd manage, too *laughs*
I'd really have loved to discuss this in-detail with you, but since you don't have an account or at least didn't leave your rev while logged in, I couldn't contact you. Please feel free to contact me if you have an account - I'm not one of the authors who doesn't want criticism. I really thought your review very interesting and would love to discuss it further with you :-)
- doesn’t like bad grammar and spelling (just for the book, she writes BE most of the time)
- doesn’t like stories without plot or with a see-through plot a child could guess
- tries hard herself to meet her own standards and expects other people to give their best, too
- hates people who can only write using bOLd aNd SmAlL all mixed up, as well as people who apparently aren’t able to convey what they are saying in whole sentences
- is very thankful if she is told what she can do better with her own stories
- will not, under any circumstances (apart from her death, a tragic accident, a life-threatening sickness... you get the picture. Something serious, in any case) discontinue a story she started to post
- because she highly dislikes people who start writing a story and then never finish
All in all, she’s not half as bad as she acts, but she can become quite unfriendly when encountered with stupidity and apparent pride of it.
Notes on stories in posting
Of which there are three at the moment.
Well, did I ever is based on an internet game which requires you to write a short piece for each challenge. I was bored. And that's basically all there's to it Fluff, humor, parody, tragedy, I think all of it is in there somewhere.
The Failure Fairy Tales are more of a project than actually a story. Basically, I'm just trying to find out what happens when Leon and D stumble in and upon other fairy tales than their own...
Not In Love With You may or may not stay a one-shot. I do have some ideas for a few more lines, but only god knows when I'll be able to type those down and make something good out of them. So updating might take a while - which is unusual for me, but in my opinion better than writing nonsense.
In case of questions: contacting me is easy and works either via review or pm, and you're always welcome to.
Notes on stories already online
Mixed Pickles: Quite tricky, that one. Originally those pieces were one-shots. I'm not a fan of spamming the archive with pieces that are only a few hundred words long, so I just put all of them in one "story". The title is supposed to convey that there is more than one story archieved there.
However, I'm not sure if people got that. And considering that, very unexpectedly, some of the stories took on a life of their own and practically wrote follow-ups... I suppose I started a series in a series. For better connection, here's what's related to each other so far:
T.I. Series: Technical Incompatibility, Hansel and Gretel, Laying out the Bait, The Zebra Incident
You will find individual A/Ns for each one-shot right there.
Then there are a few other single pieces I wrote and that have no connection to each other or any of my other stories.
Music was written on the fling of a moment, due to the radio playing the Roxette song “Sleeping in my car”. I love that song, I like the video, and I was reading PSoH. I noticed that Leon and D were positively begging to be used along with the song, and that was that ;-)
The Terrible Tea of D was an attempt to find out what kind of chaos would result if 1. D fell ill, 2. drank some hallucinogenic tea (who knows what’s in his teapot all the time, right?) and 3. Leon turned up in Tokyo. The story got longer than I anticipated, more complicated and definitely more serious. The fluff at the end is due to my best friend, so don’t blame me, please. I left the decision which ending is best to her, and she preferred this.
Le kami mal gardé: AU, OOC, everything you may ask for. I wrote this one for fun, and because I simply love the ballet I based it on (being La fille mal gardée, look it up on wiki if you’re interested). I was curious if I could turn a ballet into a story. Apparently, it worked, but how good, that’s up to you to decide.
The Interspecies Communication Problems-Series (in short just ICP)
We have here the strange occurrence that I liked some of my stories so much that I turned them into a series. Every piece I’ve written and every piece I will write that starts with an “un-“ belongs to this series, and perhaps a few more. The name of the series, “Interspecies Communication Problems”, may sound incredibly boring (yes, it is from biology), but it defines what the series is about for me. If you want to read, welcome and have fun!
Warning: all of ICP takes place after volume 10 of the original Pet Shop of Horrors series and thus spoils the ending of the original series!
Unwanted: Unexpected pregnancies almost always turn out to be a problem. Only that in their case, it should have been quite impossible to have a child together. At least this was what D thought, before he found out that, due to his own stupidity, Leon has gotten him pregnant...
Unprepared: Not enough that their child wasn't planned, neither is their return to America. Stumbling from one emotional trap to the next, somehow, along the way, Leon and D have to figure out how they can work with a child between them...
Unexpected: No one was yet able to find out how or why, but for some reason, even when they really don't want to, Leon and D are always able to fuck up. And because they never do things by halves, if they start once, it's only a question of time until things blow way out of proportion...
Unchangeable: Life needs to go on after the events in Yellowstone Park, also in the mysterious, often seemingly time-stopping pet shop. Leon and D again struggle against all odds, themselves and several other nice beings to somehow work out how they can live together without permanently trying to kill each other - which their daughter Dana would surely not like at all...
You've really made it down here?! Wow. Respect. Well, if you could spare so much time reading my profile, what are another five minutes of telling me what you thought? ;-)
