Author has written 1 story for Inuyasha.
Leaving for a week long mission trip in the mountains of West Virginia. :) I hope to write while I am there, but you never know. With 26 other people around, finding a quiet place to sit and write is a little bit difficult. :D
No, GH is NOT going to remain incomplete. No, it is not on hiatus. And no, I have not fallen off the face of the earth. I've just been having some trouble at work, as of late, which has left me stressed, exhausted, and drained. I also have given in to my inner gamer and have now played and completed Kingdom Hearts, Kingdom Hearts 2, Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories, and Kingdom Hearts Re:coded. And I also just bought Pokemon White today. You can imagine how much of my time has been consumed by this terrible habit.
Oh. And I did turn 21 yesterday. :) No wild and crazy parties. I went out with my grandmother for dinner. Yup. Cra-zy. Oh, and I also went to the zoo, which was very fun. :D
That's all for now. I am trying very hard to force myself to write, but that does not always produce the best results. So please, just be patient with me a little longer. :)
Dad has been home for a few weeks now, and is doing very well. Thank you Lord for all that you do. :) Back on top of writing again, and I hope to keep it up! Thanks for the support, everyone! :)
Been with Dad at the Heart Center the past couple of days. He had a mild heart attack Friday night, and then during the tests we discovered that he has bad diabetes. After his catheter, we also found out that he has to have triple-bypass surgery.
Our thoughts and prayers are with him constantly as he goes through this. I hope you all will understand why I won't be updating for awhile longer.
Well, that wonderful time of year has finally come around. I get to leave the middle of the Mid-West and ship off to the rugged mountains of West Virginia! This will be the sixth year I've gone on this week long mission trip, and it is amazing every single time.
However, as amazing of an experience it is, West Virginia is not condusive to a writing atmosphere. Not with 25 other people crammed into one building with you. Thus, it is doubtful any writing for GH will get done. Definitely nothing will be posted due to the general lack of modern equipment where we will be staying. Which is a good thing for me, as it clears the mind and sets one at peace, but bad for the readers, as they have to wait even longer to get something new to read. My sincerest apologies, everyone.
I do hope the fresh air and gorgeous mountain scenery will help inspiration flow again for the time I return. We shall see. ^_^
Just bits of news to get out. First off, (and this is rather late to be saying this, but whatever), GH won first place for Best Drama, 4th quarter 2009! Whoo! Thank you to everyone who voted! _
Second, the next chapter I post I am going to send out to any and all betas interested in working on GH. I have already had a couple offers which look promising, so if anyone else is interested, please send me a PM! _
Third... Happy birthday to me! _ Turning 20 today--at last, freedom from the awkward teenage years. I hardly know what to do with myself.
Definitely glad it is a new week, because the last one royally sucked. There is nothing like casting off the feeling of depression with a good night's sleep, an excellent church service with rocking music, and...hm, what's that other thing? Oh yeah, the Superbowl!! GO COLTS!!
Another pic for GH! Kikyo's death--hell yeah.
Er, well, it is pretty sad. But still, she needed to get out of the story.
Pics up for GH! Done by my own hand. _ Here is the link:
Myself and a group of fellow authors consisting of Ai Kisugi, Karaumea, and hedanicree have banded together to put out our own little story--The Inuyasha Support Group. We realized just how horrible we are to our favorite half-demon in our stories, and we felt it was time to give him an apology. At least, some of us felt that way... Anyway, I highly suggest checking the IY Support Group out. Not only is it amusing, but it gives everyone a nice summary/teaser of our stories. As well as some spoilers, so be warned.
Okay, I think that's everything for now. If you have any questions/comments/conundrums, feel free to PM me. Now back to your regular programming.
Hair: Brown, short. Fascinating.
Eyes: Blue, with red glasses. How can you beat a pair of red glasses?
Height: Specifics are unknown, but I'd hazard the guess of... short. Yes, that seems pretty accurate.
Weight: Let's not go there.
Birthday: March 22nd.
Now onto favorites...
TV show: The Office, without a doubt. But the American version, not the British version. I find Ricky Gervais to be a little too mean for my tastes. Firefly comes in at a close second, but since it's over I have to give up on that. Monty Python's Flying Circus is third--I do so enjoy British humor.
Movie: Can't say I have a favorite. I like far too many for that sort of talk. But, here is a list of ones I love: Pirates of the Caribbean (1,2,3), Star Wars, Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, The Pirates of Penzance, Singin' In The Rain, Hello Dolly, and Easter Parade. There are plenty more, but this gives you the general idea. Action movies, or old musicals.
Music: Once again, can't say I have a favorite. I do enjoy celtic/bluegrass stuff--two of my favorite groups include The Chieftans and Nickel Creek. I also enjoy Jimmy Buffett, Celtic Thunder, Bounding Main, the Eagles, and Michael Buble. I'm not overly fond of any modern stuff, and my tastes do tend to lean to the older music--eighties, big band, stuff like that.
Book: The Bloody Jack series by L.A. Meyer. That was easy enough. If I'm in need of a laugh, I usually reach for the manga Azumanga Daioh by Kiyohiko Azuma.
Actor: Gene Kelly. He could sing, he could dance, and he was pleasant to look at. What more could you possibly want? R.I.P., Gene Kelly.
Memory: I had the most wonderful opportunity through my church to take a week long trip down to D'Iberville, Mississippi to do some Katrina Relief. It was, without a doubt, the greatest experience in my life, and my only regret is that I have been unable to do it again.
Computer Game: Currently, it is Isaniquarium. It has gotten to the point where I have difficulty working on my stories because I'm so busy feeding fish and making money. Other games include: Pirate Poppers, Diner Dash, Bookworm, Baldur's Gate, and The Office.
Hobby: Aside from writing, I spend an awful lot of my time crocheting. It's relaxing, it's useful, and it's a great thing to do when you're watching TV so you don't feel quite so brain-dead.

Well, that's about it. You may be thinking, "That's odd, if she's writing an Inu-Yasha fanfic, why isn't Inu-Yasha under any of her favorites?" Well, that's because I personally am rather tired of the Inu-Yasha anime and manga. I find it to be incredibly repetitive, and, quite frankly, boring. If I was able to read the last few chapters after skipping several volumes and still understand everything just fine, then it's a sign that the series should have ended a long time ago. But, I do see a lot of potential with the characters that Rumiko Takahashi never seemed to take, so I decided it was time to try my hand at writing something with them.
To be honest, I actually have written a couple other Inu-Yasha fics before, back when I was in junior high and still devouring all the Inu-Yasha manga I could get my hands on, but they were as repetitive and poorly written as the manga itself. I have removed them from ff.net, but once Guilty Hero is over I may consider going back and reworking them.
This brings me to my final segment-- Potential Future Works! What will come next once Guilty Hero is over?
Guilty Hero Prequel (title is, obviously, subject to change): I think there is plenty of potential concerning the story of Inu-Yasha's life before Kagome came along, so I have decided, along with Sassybratt's support, to write the prequel. It will begin with Inu-Yasha's life on the streets as a young teenager, go through his time of personal change with Kikyo, bring to you in real time the battle with Naraku, and end with his steady, inevitable slide into alcoholism.
Untitled: An IY fic that takes place out in the boondocks. Kagome is a country bumpkin, Inu-Yasha is the new unwelcome resident of the town, and Miroku is the somewhat less-than-holy priest at the local church.
If anyone has questions, comments, or title suggestions for PFWs, please send a PM my way.
