That would be my explanation video for the long hiatus I had from April to December of 2012. Please watch it! Also, if you ever wanted to know what I look like... well, there you go. Ahaha.
Gyllbane's amazing fanart for American Honey:
Vaughn's song - "The Cowboy in Me" by Tim McGraw:
5/12/13 So, I finally got around to updating AH again. Between 2am and 5am, I wrote a massive chapter and cut in it half, then published the first half. I have the second half, but it seems like FF isn't sending emails out right now, so I'm definitely waiting at least until that's fixed to update again. I hope they fix it soon so all of you guys can see that I've finally written something again! I'm really excited to write this arc, and I feel like the momentum is picking up again. I graduate in less than two weeks and then go out to Alabama for orientation, so I'll be really intensely busy up until June. I hope I'll have time to update before then, though!
3/11/13 Updated AH again yesterday, which makes Chapter 51. That's two chapters this week. I feel like I need to write more or I'll explode.
12/30/12 Updated AH. Finally. Jeez. Check out(which was also linked up at the top of the profile) for my explanation. Happy New Year. My resolutions include better updating schedule keeping. Lord, American Honey was so much easier to write before I had my own fair dose of romantic failure. Haha. Haaa. At least now when/if Vaughn and Chelsea ever get to kiss, I'll actually know what I'm talking about and not just BSing it like I do my English homework.
5/21/12 Oh my, I seem to have neglected this section for a while. Well, I'm seventeen now and my junior year ends on Friday (May 25th). Well, I have two finals after that, but I don't like to think about that. Anyway, it's been hectic this semester and I've done a shamefully low amount of writing. But I'm really excited to get back into it come June. Sooo, I'm playing with the idea of writing an OC-fic where the main character is paired with Vaughn. To take away the sugar coating, it would be a self-insert fic. I'd challenge myself to make it not Mary-Sue-esque and more... believable? I dunno. I want to try it, though, after American Honey is finished. On another note, I think it may be time to change my avatar. It's been with me since I joined FF, but I'm thinking of making it a real picture of me. After I get my senior pictures done this summer, that is. Well, I'll end my rant here. Here's to a stress-free last school week and a long, relaxing summer!
11/20/11 It's been a while since I updated this news section, huh? Well, it's two-thirds of the way through National Novel Writing Month (the reason I haven't updated AH in over a month) and I'm really far behind on my word count. But I did manage to write a chapter of AH back in October so I could put it out in November--but I forgot about it until just now. I'm going to put it up right now! Unfortunately, that'll be the last update until December. But December's only in ten days, so... well, yeah. I'll just put up that chapter now.
7/30/11 Well, I finally finished that chapter. I only wrote 945 words at Starbucks in five hours... but I did that much and more in like forty-five minutes at home. Lol. Adding contest info to the top of my profile.
7/26/11 Damn, it's been forever. I'm at Starbucks right now as I'm typing this, so I should do at least one chapter here. I hope. I've been here for two hours and haven't started... But I'll do one soon. My writer's block isn't as severe now, which is epic. The next chapter will bring news about my contest, too! Here's to faster updates, lol.
6/20/11 Well, I'm lazy. I sort of have writer's block, and I started a new fic, which was a bad idea. Country ABCs will be fun, but time-consuming. It's an idea that Xealvi came up with and she has her own version up. On a different note... I'm thinking of doing a contest of sorts. Actually, it's totally a contest. I'm not sure if it'll happen, but... whatever it is, the winner will get a super-special (unedited) copy of American Honey in legit book form. But that's not all. It'll have an alternate ending. And I'll sign it, if that means anything lolol. The contest itself is either going to be to draw a fanart of any scene in the story or it might be something else like "take any scene from the story and rewrite half of it". Like, if you really wished something else had happened at a certain part of the fic, then take that part, quote the first paragraph or so, then write what you wish had happened next. There would be different judging categories for each one, ahaha. Well, that was just a little idea I had. We'll see what happens. xP
5/22/11 I don't know how many of y'all will see this, but American Honey is on a little hiatus until June! I get out of school on the 2nd and I can't spare any of my study time to write, unfortunately, so we'll have to wait until after finals. Sorry! I know, I fail Dx
4/30/11 So happy! I spent nearly three hours at Barnes&Noble today writing this fic. I have so much done! And I'm on fire to write more. It seems like all I needed to do was get out of that twenty-chapter-long winter. xD Oh, yeah, MY BIRTHDAY IS IN A WEEK :D
3/24/11 I wrote a oneshot, but FF.net isn't letting me post anything. I'm also not receiving any emails for reviews, PMs, or updated stories... I'm sorry, guys, but it looks like there won't be review replies this chapter Dx
3/23/11 I fail at scheduling. I still have my cough, and now it's time for applying to AP and honors courses for next year, so I'm swamped with tests and essays and stuff. Blarg. But I put off my homework to 12:34am (right now) to write up chapter 30 and by golly I did it. Things are getting interesting now in the fics and I think we're about a third to two-fifths of the way through the plot I've figured out. This may hit a hundred chapters. It definitely will hit fifty. Seventy-five seems most likely for an ending amount. Well, I'll go do my homework now. Tomorrow in English class we get time to work on our essays and I might just start the next chapter xD
3/9/11 AH finally updated again! I'm sick again (D:), and it's the last quarter of the school year, so I have my work cut out for me. Things are going to get intense while I try to balance school with fanfiction, but just know that I'm never leaving AH for good. Spring break will come in April and that means updates galore! Well... all I can say for the plot of AH is that it's all coming together now that Vaughn and Chelsea are kind-of-pseudo-friends :3
2/11/11 Updated AH today. Been sick this week, so I have a ton of schoolwork to do. Also, I updated my story ideas section below. I'll be making a poll soon asking which of those you'd like to see next, so keep an eye out!
1/24/11 Updated AH yesterday. Twenty-five chapters! Goodness. And that's a perfect number for this point in the plot - things have officially pivoted. I want to say that things are heading uphill towards the climax here, but I'm not sure. And no one fret about the climax coming soon... I have a crap-load of falling action and denouement to write through before the fic actually ends. Even if I update weekly, I don't think I'll finish until summer sometime... and that's assuming we get more frequent updates during summer vacation. Anywho, I'll be gone this weekend, so no update. I'll probably end up doing a double-update in two weeks. It'll be cool, but probably rather filler xP
1/13/11 Updated my story portion down below on my profile. Also, American Honey has been especially active recently, no? Well, I'll try to keep it up. It's a three-day weekend and I may have so much homework I need to take two trips to my locker since I can't fit it all in my backpackbut I will update this weekend at least once. I'm on a field trip tomorrow to the Cathedral in Los Angeles, which is about a one-and-a-half to two-hour bus ride (one way!). I'll see if I can type it on my phone, ahaha. I probably won't be able to though. We'll see. If I can, it will be a revolutionary discovery and I will be able to update way faster in the future. xP
12/31/10 Updated AH. Wow. Five months. Hey, guys--I'm alive! And here I thought that drabble, "Thawing", would be enough to let people know I was still active. I uploaded it over three months ago, and I though it was just a few weeks ago! Time flies, and that's not good. I like having time, and there just doesn't seem to be a lot of it these days. By the way, Sophomore year sucks.
5/31/10 Updated American Honey again today. I must say, I'm very happy with this fic. Granted, it's most certainly not the best one out there, but I feel that my writing is a ton better in it than it has been previously. Well, anywho, I have finals from tomorrow until June 3rd, and then I'm free to write until I'm a sophomore in the end of August! Oh, and I've recently discovered Vaughn's song. Link'd above :D
5/8/10 Updated AH--FINALLY. I had an amazing birthday and Gyllbane drew me some of the best presents I've even gotten: the first fanart done for any of my fics. I posted links above--they're magnificent! I'll try to update as much as I can before school gets out, but there's no promises until after the end of May. Just three more weeks of school! :D
5/4/10 Ah... I updated Surreal a bit ago, and I have half of the next chapter of American Honey typed up. I know exactly where I want the story to go from here, but I'm finding time to be a scarcity towards the end of the school year. Ugh. Oh well--I'm almost done, yeah? I have a 14-minute speech and 10 paragraph essay on HARVEST MOON due in two weeks. It should be super fun, since we picked our topics. I'm also looking forward to my birthday on the sixth--I'll try to give you guys an update by then. xD Anything else worth mentioning...? Hm. Oh, right. I have a tumor in my neck. Nothing major. We think. xDDD
3/23/10 Ah, look at how far behind I am in updating! Dx I'm going to write as many chapter of AH as I can this week, but in the meantime, I put up a new story. It's just a collection of VaughnxChelsea drabbles, but it's fun. xP Enjoy
2/21/10 Hey all! Well, I've started another longfic. When will I learn? I got the idea after listening to the Lady Antebellum song "American Honey." It's a great song. I love it. Downloaded yesterday and it's got 216 plays and counting... Hehe. Well, I'll try to update that one weekly, maybe biweekly... it doesn't have much of a plot, but I'm sure I'll figure one out. xD
1/16/10 Hello! Okay, so... I have a great idea for a VaighnxChelsea fic that I really, really want to write. I actually have six chapters of one that I started out, but I realized it wasn't going anywhere, so it's not coming up. But! But... I have a fictionpress account now! Link up top. I'm writing a novel called The Autobiography of an Imaginary Friend, and I would love if you reviewed it. I'm going to be writing that the most often, and then focus on that VaughxChelsea fic. :P
12/25/09 Merry Christmas everyone! I wrote Eggnog, a VaughnxChelsea Christmas oneshot that I didn't plan out at all. Other than that, I have nothing to say, except that it's 12:20 in the morning and I shoudl get some sleep--I might even start another fic tomorrow, if I'm bored enough ;D Let me know what ya'll think of my current ones! :D
12/19/09 (2) I uploaded a crappy VaughnxChelsea oneshot! Yay? Well, I still want to write a long fic for them... Hm... What to do, what to do?
12/19/09 (1) Uh... hi? Well, let's see... I'm in high school. It's the end of the first semester. I have suddenly been bit by the VaughnxChelsea pairing bug. What does this mean? This means that I'm going to write again. But probably only for the remainder of Christmas Break--which goes until January 5th. I participated in NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) in November and won--huzzah! I wrote a fail self-insert set in Mineral Town. I love Gray. But I'm not sure if I'm going to upload it... I might, but it's really only half fanfiction. Hm... Oh, and if anyone wants to kick my butt and-slash-or kill me, please--feel free.
7/14/09 Wow. I... I'm hanging my head in shame. Writer's block isn't supposed to last half a year... I need inspiration! -_-
6/8/09 OMG! I'm here again! School ends on June 10, in two days. I'm going to update EVERY SINGLE ONE OF MY FICS within a week of then, I swear. Well, I won't update the oneshots, because... well, they're oneshots... I'm a little--actually, a lot--discouraged because after I updated Lost Cause back in May, not a single person reviewed. Not one. And I know for a fact that at least five people have it in alerts. Or, maybe they had it in alerts, and no longer do... Ugh. Well, I'm going to finish up all of my current fics over the summer and that means that I can start clean for High School! Woo! ...Yeah. Please, if you read my newest chapters, review. I don't care if you just say, "Cool," because I just want to know that people are actually reading them... Sigh
5/4/09 I live? Ha! I updated Lost Cause a few days back. Sorry for disappearing! I may have to hold off on the updating until school's out in June D: ON AN UNRELATED NOTE... I'm psyched for my birthday on May 6! :D
1/17/09 Four day weekend, starting yesterday! Hopefully I can (secretly) pull an all-nighter and write insane amounts of LC chapters tomorrow night - but for now, all I can do is study for that one stupid test. It's on the 31st, so after that, I shouldn't complain about it anymore. My basketball team is 5-0, still undefeated! Yay! ...Anyways, I also updated my story ideas. Scroll down and check 'em out, if you want.
1/11/09 I just realized that I had all these update dates at 2008, XD Okay! So, I finally updated Lost Cause, even though it was one teeny chapter. I also added another drabble, "Pressure," to Silently. It's a reflection of my current feelings. I hate tests. Oh yes, I also found out one of my reviewers is psychic. They scare me ;-;
1/6/09 Hi all! Terribly sorry for not updating Lost Cause in a while, but there's just no time! Spanish test today (100 FTW), class Spelling Bee in English that my teacher messed up today, Geometry finals next week, and I have a two-page history report due Friday. Oh, and we started the hockey unit in PE, and Lord knows how many people I'll hurt once I get a hold of that hockey stick. And our school's girls basketball team has two games a week every week in January. We're 3-0! UNDEFEATED! WOOOO! ...Anyways, back to Fanfiction... I'll write at least one chapter for LC this weekend, and maybe more! :D
1/2/09 Happy New Years! Unfortunately, I didn't get a chance to write ANYTHING except for OW over break. But, I did get a lot of studying done! ...Yeah, I didn't think it'd be that exciting for ya'll. So, I have a site I want everyone who likes Harvest Moon to go to! It needs members, and it's awesome! It's a forum/RP, but you don't need to RP if you don't want to... Come on and join! ...Please?
I'm on Christmas Break from 12/19-1/5! I'm writing like crazy! :D

Some of my fics include some swearing, and I feel the need to explain myself. I do not, under any circumstances, swear. However, I find that some of the characters' personalities would most definitely have them using some language... coughGrayandVaughncough ...so, as many of you writers out there know, the author is a slave to the plot and not the master of the story. It's near impossible to write a convincing fic when the characters don't seem... well, in-character. So, I'm sorry if you're offended by the language (even though I didn't write something obscene or anything >_>), but keep in mind: it's the characters talking. Not the author. It is always the character, unless you're reading the author's note. XD
Update: 6/20/11 Yeah, I swear now. My characters don't say anything I wouldn't say. That's not to say, however, that they wouldn't say anything that I wouldn't say in front of my mother... That's a different story.
Update update: 5/12/13 I just reread the original note up there and I think it's absolutely hilarious how people change. It's been like five years and I'm so different. Ha.
So, basically I have an account here on FanFiction.net so I can keep track of Graire, Changela, and Velsea Harvest Moon fics, but I'm writing some, as well. Kind of. So here are those ideas I have. Please don't steal them from me, and if they've already been written, please tell me so I don't accidentally plagiarize!
Summer Camp (Oneshot)
Carter asks Claire and Cliff to help him manage a week-long summer camp, but what happens when Cliff has to work and finds a last-minute replacement? Clairex?
Girl's Night? (Oneshot)
May, Mary, and Stu have decided Claire and Gray have been "just friends" for too long. The three of them come up with a devious plan to get them together! Will it work? ClairexGray

Wish I May (Pending)
I really only have the title... It'll be about May, though, so NO STEALING MY TITLE! XD
Wish I Might (Long Fic)
Unrelated to Wish I May. Claire, Gray, and Mary all wish upon the first star they saw one night, and we get to see how it all plays out.
Title Pending (Long Fic)
Gray finds Claire lying unconscious on the dock one day in winter. She was very defensive, and she seemed to be hiding something. What happened to that girl back in the city?

Another Winter (Long Fic)
Sequel to One Winter, in Gray's POV. Maybe this will put him back in-character ;-;
He hadn't loved her THAT much, right? It wasn't as bad as she was making it... right? She couldn't be breaking his heart; he was HIM. Nothing could hurt HIM... Angst/Romance
Answers (Long Fic)
Sequel to Lost Cause. Don't bug me about this one-- It won't be started for a LONG while.
Letters and Love Notes (Oneshots)
A collection of Mineral Town's mail. Private thoughts and messages, all recorded down on paper for us to read...
What If (Oneshots)
A collection of odd contemplations, all of which thought plausible by their creator. So many circumstances are changed by asking the simple question: "What if?"

A ChasexAkari oneshot, and guess what it's about? Romance/Humor
Title Pending (Longfic)
The new farmer has started working part-time at the local Inn. What can Chase do to keep his sanity? ChasexAkari, Chase's POV Romance/Humor

Title Pending (Longfic)
The island's farmer is dead, and Chelsea [last name] wants to know more. Even if it wasn't a murder (which it totally wasn't, but don't tell her that), she is determined to figure out everything about the case. One of her main "suspects" is none other than the infamously-stoic Vaughn [last name, and he doesn't appreciate it. "Death isn't something that likes to be toyed around with. Unfortunately, he didn't get that memo." VaughnxChelsea, Romance/Horror/Angst/...Humor?
.:Stories I'm working on:.
American Honey (Long Fic)
Status: Active. Updated as often as possible. First priority! :D
The Last Heart (Long Fic)
Status: I've determined that this fic is worth continuing. Working on chapters randomly, so chapters are added randomly... It's a fic I only write when I feel like it. Which isn't often.
Status: This story is basically just where I post my random... drabbles. The MFoMT ones. Which, admittedly, have slowed down now.
Lost Cause (Long Fic)
Status: I hit the pause button for this fic... I'll let you know when I pick it up again, okay?
Can't Stand the Heat (Long Fic)
Status: I may end up rewriting the first few chapters... But probably not. On hold until--well, I'll let you know.
Surreal: a Collection of Drabbles
Status: I'll just put more when I write them. Not really a priority... heh. :P
Status: Second priority. Updates will be semi-sporadic, which should be fine, since the chapters will have nothing to do with one another.
.:Stories I've finished:.
One Winter (Long Fic)
Oh my gosh! I finished something! I'm so psyched about that. Stay tuned for the sequel "Another Winter," coming... eventually!
What's in a Name? (Oneshot)
Tell me if it's any good, please. I was just looking up the meanings of random HM characters, and when I saw Mary's meaning, I just HAD to write something making fun of her. Mary lovers might not like it too much.
Tell me what you think. I tried to make it sad, but... I've never tried writing a "tragedy" before. (I put quotes because I wouldn't consider it a tragedy, really.)
A 9/11-based fic I wrote in first period Geometry... It's... Different, I suppose. Tell me whatchya'll think, 'kay?
The Chicken Murder (Oneshot)
Hehehe, I was challenged to write a ClairexRick fic, and this is what I wrote. Warning: People with weak stomachs, love of poultry, and/or love of Rick should be cautious when reading. It's a very graphic story. I'm so proud. :D
Pickled Turnips (Oneshot)
Wrote it randomly in a desperate act to save my account. How long has it been that I've been suffering from severe writer's block? Ugh... Enjoy!
Yay for Vaughn and Chelsea! I got inspiration for this fic while listening to the song "Fall" by Clay Walker. If you want to hear it, go
I wanted to write something with Vaughn and Chelsea for Christmas, and this is what came out on the keyboard. Let me know how horrible it is, 'kay? :D
I got the word "thawing" on a random word generator I was using for prompts and the idea just came to me. I typed it out in, no joke, three minutes or less. I just had to write something--it had been several months since I'd written any fanfiction D:
Written for no reason. I wanted to use that opening line and this fic is what came out of it. Similar to Eggnog, but... not. I like this one. No idea why.
Yeah, I'll take requests! Of course, I'm not actually that great of an authoress, but if you do happen to like the way I write, just PM me. Give me a genre, main character(s) and/or pairing, and I'll write it as soon as possible. You can tell me an entire plot, or a quote you want used, or... Whatever. I'll write it up, post it, and say in the author's note who it's for. Feel free to request, even if you've never even spoken to me! I love getting requests, but I'm not sure how long it'll take to finish--you all know how writer's block is, and how important it is to have inspiration before you start. xD
Update: 5/12/13 Yeah, I don't know about requests right now with my busy busy schedule. But message me and we'll talk.
