Hmm. I haven't updated this profile in a while, have I? Well, since I never post anything anymore these days, here are some links to my social media where I DO post things. Mostly art, and yeah, there's a lot of fanart:

Letter of Sorts/Dear Fanfiction.net Anon…
How COULD you?! You melt my heart with a glowing review of a story I wrote in high school, and then I find out I don’t have any way to respond to you since you never made a fanfiction.net account! Whether you find this post by digging through my social media or not I have to simply say, thank you. I am featuring your review on my tumblr as well as copying it below to my profile in the hopes you find my response:
-Truthfully, I have thought about deleting a lot of my old fanfic– including this one. When I look back nearly a decade ago to stories I wrote as a teen I see all the flaws and weaknesses that I know likely few of my readers do. I do the same with my artwork, but I somehow find a way to swallow those internal criticisms and put on a show that I have always been “good” at drawing. My writing is a different story (heh – literally). It amazes me to this day that every now and then someone like you, Anon, comes along and reminds me of these stories I made. Some of them I have nearly forgotten or even try to forget, but this one I never will.
I was a junior in high school. I was on a slow path to feeling like I could function with my peers–finally talking and having friends. I was nuts about Little Shop of Horrors and began to imagine how I could reconcile the dark and heavy themes of the play with the fun and happy ending of the film. Midway through writing my laptop broke down and my parents spent $100 getting the hard drive restored just to get the chapters that weren’t online back. Speaking of my family, our life was falling apart. I was losing my father to mental illness and addiction. Little Shop was one of the last things we bonded over. The events of my senior year (and much the junior year before it) were far from rosy with how everything turned out.
All of that is why this story sticks with me so much and keeps me from hitting that “delete” button. I may have effectively retconned it in my mind after writing more Little Shop of Horrors stories in the years since. At times I feel like I’d like to re-imagine all my ideas into a comic and at times I wonder what the point of that would be. But I can say that in the end I feel this story is less about a musical I love and more about me. So, thank you for loving an extension of myself and letting me know that in some small way I reached you.
(PS: Yes, that makes Julie my self-insert :P )
