Author has written 70 stories for Wrestling.
I feel like the last of a dying breed,
and certainly the last of a fandom generation.

I cannot describe how ironic it is to me that my most popular fic (Not the most reviews, but a lot more views than any of my other fics), even years after it was published and completed, is not a fic I'm terribly proud of, or attached to. It's actually probably the fic I am least satisfied with, but also one that I have no desire to go back and rewrite. I personally feel the plot, narrative and devices of the fic are quite immature (a reflection of myself as a younger writer at the time) and not stellar examples of my real abilities. The ending is pretty terrible, mostly because I was so over the fic, completely uninspired by the characters that I just wanted to get it done and not have to deal with it anymore, and I felt obligated to write an ending for the readers and not just leave the fic hanging. But somehow, readers like it. I've gotten plenty of reviews about how the ending wasn't as spectacular as it could've been, but overall, readers enjoy it--which baffles me!
To the readers who are still enjoying Hearts of Steel, thank you. I can't believe people still read that fic, I still can't believe it's even relevant, but what do I know? I'm sorry it's not up to par with my later fics, but that's just how this cookie crumbled. It's is a little disheartening that some of the other fics that I have poured all of my heart and focus into do not receive such "fanfiction success" or acclaim, but that's okay with me. A lot of times I'm just writing for myself, and I know what fics I am proud of and which I am not. At the end of the day, I can't truly despise any of my work done on this site. Writing here opened me up to so many other options, styles and opportunities that I would have never known and I am thankful for that. Being on this site made me a better writer.
Maybe one day I'll write a fic that I'm truly proud of that can rival the popularity of Hearts of Steel. Until then, be kind to one another; this site doesn't need to be a breeding ground for online bullies, but a place of encouragement and growth for writers.
