Author has written 12 stories for Naruto, Stargate: SG-1, and Kuroshitsuji.
To my dear readers:
I have had many folks wondering whether I am still around or not...or if I have abandoned my works...
Please know that I am still around - and writing - but for the past several months relocating my home has been the focus of most, if not all, of my attention.
The actual move will be occurring this week - and then the unpacking and settling down...but after that I fully intend to resume my writings here.
In fact, if you want to drop me a PM suggesting which of my ongoing tales you'd like to see updated first, I will add to them based on the numbers from you, my readers. (Trust me when I say I have ideas and notes for every one of my stories, so I don't mind letting the #s choose for me!)
Thank you for your patience -
Although I've come to the Naruto universe later in life then most -
still I found myself drawn to the richness of Masashi Kishimoto's stories and characters.
From the start I resonated with the somewhat aloof nature of a certain masked ninja and always wished that he would appear in more episodes/chapters than he has. There is always a hint of what he's made of that is enough to make us curious but never enough to satisfy.
So to keep my mind occupied I started creating my own Kakashi-centered storylines.
Some were completed before we knew all the characters of the Akatsuki (so you will need to forgive my use of other names and jutsus than what belongs in the real Naruto universe) and all tend to revolve around Kakashi.
But then again my pen name should have clued you in on that!
I hope you enjoy my contributions and I will do my best to provide you with well written, believable story lines.
update as of 2/17/2010:
Today marks the beginning of an experiment with my friend Fallen Angel Kakashi (Formerly LostOverlord) where we will be playing tag-team in detailing the adventures of Team White Fang.
I had the honor of posting the first piece in this colaboration and now the onus is on Fallen Angel Kakashi to post the next story. Once they post, then it falls back to me to continue the tale.
We both hope you enjoy our fun experiment. And thank you in advance for being our guinea pigs!
update as of 2/27/2010:
I know - I know...you're wondering what on Earth I'm thinking of by adding ANOTHER story into the mix...sigh.
What can I say...when a story disrupts my sleep three nights in a row I can take the hint...It was either allow the muse to win, or never sleep through the night again...not to mention the muse has refused to let me work on any of the other stories until I at least got this first chapter posted. And so we have the birth of Fire and Ice...an ANBU tale taking place during that unmentionable timeframe during the timeskip when Kakashi's team members are being taught by the Sanin.
I hope you'll bear with me as my muse runs wild again...thank you all for reading (and reviewing for those who do!)
Now I'll try to get back to updating some of those other tales you've all been waiting for!
update as of April 18, 2010:
I know - I have been neglecting my stories far more than I ever intended to...but life (aka WORK) always seems to get in the way of my plans.
Anyhow-this week I am spending some extra time away from /that/ place and will try my best to update many of the stories that have been waiting for attention. And who knows - perhaps I'll get on a true writing spree and all of them will see some movement for a change!
I just wanted to assure you all that, although some stories may go quite some time between updates, I have no intention of abandoning ANY of my tales. So I ask for your paitence as I try to work what I love to do (write tales to intrigue you all) into a work-life that can be overwhelming on the best of days, and can make me want to break on the worst of days.
Thank you for your continued support - to those who take the time to review and provide feedback...yes, even the anonymous ones..., to those who add my tales to favorites and/or alerts, to those who have added me as a favorite author, to those who I now proudly count as my friends (you all know who you are!,) and-of course-to those silent folks who read without reviewing...I was among your numbers for quite some time before joining up and leaving my thoughts 'officially' on the stories that caught my eye.
With each and everyone of you I have been able to share my twist on things and not been afraid to push the envelope from time to time...thank you all!
Until next time...
Updated April 24, 2010:
Well...that's three updates down! I hope you are all enjoying the bounty of my time off from work...but it isn't over yet! I still have a few more days to try for at least one more story update...so hopefully it will be one you all want to hear from!
If there's any particular story you want updated sooner rather than later feel free to PM me...perhaps if enough people gang up on my muse it will cave in and do what we want for a change!
Thanks for your support!
Updated May 1, 2010:
Wow - it's hard to believe it's May already...but I guess that's the way of things, eh?
Anyhow...I am pleased to annouce the THIRD installment of the Colaborative Team White Fang project with FallenAngelKakashi is finished and will be posted tonight! With the posting of Team White Fang Mission Ready, we continue to play tag-team on detailing the misadventures of Sakumo Hatake and his genin team of Shikaku, Inoichi, and Choza.
I hope you enjoy reading it at least as much as I enjoyed writing it...and thank you for your continued support of this experiment!
I will be keeping a listing of the order of these collaborative stories here on my profile so folks can always refer here to see what order they are suggested to be read in.
Updated July 3, 2010:
I know many have wondered where I've gone to...trust me, if I had a chance to update I would have.
Life caught up to me in the form of project deadlines at work and family matters that were both unexpected and devastating all at the same time. Fortunately I have made it out the other side, with the grace of God and the support of family and friends, and am slowly regaining my momentum here.
I ask that you have paitence with me, and have confidence that I have no intention of ever abandoning these stories, or this site. Today is the first of the updates planned...so no worries...and each story will be updated before you know it!
Thank you to everyone who continues to read my tales and remind me that I can always find refuge in the stories I create.
Some of you have expressed concern over why I haven't updated in a bit...trust me, I would have if I had been physically able to. I had a bit of an unfortunate injury to my writing arm that caused me to be unable to write or type for quite some time. It's being treated, and is healing at this point, but I am still limited as to how much writing I can do.
So thank you to those who offered up their concern - it was greatly appreciated - and, although much slower than I had hoped for, rest assured that updates and new stories are definitely forthcoming!
Sigh...the arm is still wonky...but the will to update still drives me on! And am I the only one who has noticed the annoying tendency of plot-bunnies to gang up and attack us when we are least able to actually release those ideas onto to paper or pc?
The down side is that I am horribly frustrated...the up side, of course, is that once I can get this stupid arm to work better, the new chapters and stories should come frighteningly quick...
My arm IS healing...just a lot slower than I would have preferred...so 1-handed typing is still happening, and by the end of it all I fully expect to be officially ambidextrous! Heh...
Thanks to all of you who have shared your well-wishes...and for all of you who continue to read/review/etc; even though the updates are excruiatingly slow...you are definitely the best!

IN PROGRESS MULTI-CHAPTER STORIES:
I've been asked enough times now about what story is being updated next, that I've decided to create a listing of the order of updates, including the lastest chapter number and the date it was updated. So find the date which is closest to the date you are checking here, and look to see what's next in line. If you're at the bottom of the list, the next story to be updated is at the top of the list.
Hope this helps! 'Krazed
Added December 24, 2010:
Evidently my muse decided it wanted the crossover story that has been inserting itself into my dreams for the past few months to see the light of day...and it refused to let me get past the halfway point on the next installment of Fire and Ice until I wrote it!
So, without further ado...I give you a crossover of Naruto and Stargate: SG-1...featuring Kakashi Hatake and Daniel Jackson.
I blame it entirely on the pain in my arm...but regardless, I hope you all enjoy it!
Now I hope the muse has been satisfied for a bit and will let me complete the next update!
Thanks for your paitience...
Happy New Year to one and all!
Looks like When Worlds Collide has kidnapped my plot-bunny! Anyhow - I hope you enjoy chapter 2...
Well, as some of you out there already know, I am in week 3 of having my dominant writing hand all the way over my elbow stuck in a cast in a last ditch attempt to heal a tendon gone bad. With luck, it will work, and after some physical therapy I'll be back to updating much quicker. Until then, know that I will still be updating...just at a much slower rate.
So, I hope you all enjoy chapter 12 of Never More Than Eternal Rivals...and will be patient as I type up chapters 1-handed.
The good news: The cast is off!
The bad news: It'll be awhile before my freed hand will be back up to prime speed...so I'll be making do with one-handed updates with the occassional 2-handed bursts thrown in. Heh - but I certainly don't want to reinjure the thing, so I'll still be on the slow road to updates for a bit longer yet.
Thanks to all those who have stuck with me...
I do promise all my readers of my non-crossover stories that none of them have been forgotten. It's just that my muse is holding them hostage these days.
It seems that every time I finish a page or two in the stories, the muse freezes up until another chapter of When Worlds Collide is posted. Sometimes I truly hate my muse...sigh.
Anyhow - stick with me and every story will get updated...honest!
Ah, yes, and I should probably mention the fact that updates are still being done one-handed...and will be for awhile. The elbow has not gotten better...it has, in fact, grown worse. As such, it's slated for surgery in the coming month - and will be followed by three MORE weeks in a cast. But be patient and the stories will come!
Thanks again to all my loyal readers/reviewers, and to all of my new readers/reviewers...I hope you all continue to enjoy my stories...
Updated April 22, 2011:
Well, I'm pleased to announce that I have, indeed, survived my surgery to write another day!
Thank you to all my friends who I've met over the years through this site who have kept me in your thoughts and prayers today...as corny as it may sound to some of you out there, I believe it definitely made the difference.
Although I still have a long road to a full recovery ahead of me, I will definitely be continuing to update all my stories...albeit a bit slower than any of us would prefer...heh...but at least they're being updated, right? Right!
Anyhow - I'm still here...so I hope all of you will continue to read and enjoy the warped and twisted imaginings that I (and the Muse and Plot Bunnies) will continue to create for poor Kakashi Hatake...
My heartfelt thanks to you all! And a Blessed Easter to all those who celebrate it!
Updated May 10, 2011:
I know it was a long time coming...but with one hand it's been a definite challenge for me. I have 1 more week to suffer through before they finally remove this latest cast...and trust me when I say it better be the LAST cast!
So with luck I'll be back to 2 handed typing soon! Which should mean more timely updates...
Thanks for sticking with me folks!
Updated May 20, 2011:
Here we are...cast free and quickly on my way to a full recovery! Want proof? How about a new chapter posting in a third as long as it took for my last update? And with each day's improvement, I'll be back to my old schedule for updates before you know it!
Hope you enjoy the gift...more will be coming!
Updated November 13, 2012:
If I still have any followers out there, all I can do is offer up my most sincere apologies for the long delay between updates. As much as I would love to spend every waking moment writing (both fan fiction and my own stories) my work and other drama in the real world has made the task all the more difficult.
While I can't promise that there won't be more long breaks between posting, I CAN promise that I will not abandon any of my stories. I can only hope that you will all still enjoy the trials and tribulations that I put poor Kakashi through in my tales.
All my best to both my most loyal (and patient) fans along with those newer followers...
Your humble servant - 'Krazed
Updated July 1, 2013:
I beg your forgiveness for adding another story (a crossover at that) before moving forward with those still in progress.
I'm afraid that my muse was kidnapped and the only way to free them was to give in to the voices in my head and write 'Too Much Of A Good Thing' - a crossover of Naruto and Kuroshitsuji (Black Butler)
The demonic butler, Sebastian and his Victorian era master have been whispering in my ear since I read another crossover out there and, now firmly ensconced in the manga and anime out there, I caved and realized I really wanted to mix the stories together. And thus a crossover was born.
On the bright side, I'm hoping that I have appeased the muse and they will now allow me to finish some of the other updates which are partially done.
Bear with me, my friends...and all will be well.
Updated September 2, 2013:
Again I am here begging your forgiveness and tolerance. Life socked me upside the head these past months and took my father away from me and my family. The man was one of my greatest supporters of my writing, and as a direct result, I had been unable to put pen to paper or even finger to keyboard until now without the tears flowing.
It's been a rough patch in my life, but having the ability to immerse myself into my stories, both here and with my novels, is starting to be exactly the therapy I need to move on. Although the process has been slow at times, I have finally found my muse again, and plan to get back to other stories that are in dire need of updating.
Thank you to those who knew and offered your support - you're the best!
Now back to the creating!
Updated October 24, 2014:
No - I haven't fallen off the face of the Earth...suffice it to say this past year has been a brutal one with more injuries to my body and soul and chaos at both work and home.
Bad side? I haven't been able to write, let alone update, for far too long.
Bright side? At the end of all of this I will have moved somewhere that should eliminate greatly the number of ways I can get injured. (yes - I an truly accident prone...and have developed a true hatred for cement stairs!)
Anyhow - I am hoping to continue a much better posting schedule than once a year...so, if any of my fans are still out there...rest assured that I am back!
Thanks to you all...
Updated August 8, 2015:
No - you aren't seeing things...I have actually updated a story!!
What's more - I am just one furniture delivery away from having my room exactly where it needs to be to allow for much more time to weave my words once more.
Thank you to all my new fans and those who never gave up the hope that I'd get back to my many unfinished stories.
Hopefully the wait was worth it...until next time my dears...
Updated July 1, 2016:
The rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated...life just keeps getting in my way!
I thank all of my stalwart fans for hanging in there...just remember that no matter how long it takes, I will not abandon you or my stories!
All it took for me this time was leaving the country for a bit. I will make a concentrated effort to carve out a chunk of time each week to work on these gems. So patience my friends - and all will be revealed!
