03/31/12: My dear readers, not to worry, I am still alive and well..also I haven't forgotten about my WIP fics. It's just that with work, at the end of the day sometimes I am back and forth from my computer as well as feeling too lazy to write anything. But I resolve to at least try to update once a month. Thanks for your patience. :)
11/23/12: Well my friends, my temporary job is over, so expect more frequent updates. My current WIP Sailor Moon fic is nearly complete. I know my YGO one hasn't been touched in nearly a year. Not to worry, I haven't forgotten about it. It's just that the muse for it had been stubborn(and with that job, didn't have time to get it to cooperate) but after this SM fic is complete I will get it working again, I promise.
12/26/12: As you can see, Slow Process to Redemption is complete and up next will be the 3rd book of the Nephrite series. Good news..woke up my fic muse for the YGO fic a little. Hopefully it will be completely restored soon.
01/29/13:Yay, the YGO fic has finally been updated! Please be patient with me as I figure out what to write about next.
12/02/13: Hey guys, first of all, happy holidays and I wish you all a wonderful holiday season. I imagine those of you who have been following my "The Gift of Love" fic must wanna kill me now as it has not been updated for nearly seven months but I have not forgotten it. Just wanted to get as much of my YGO fic written as I could and didn't have the inspiration for it but it has started to come back. Have started to work on chapter 3 and am going for a January 2014 update. I will also do a oneshot for a fandom I will be attempting for the first time so be on the lookout for that..and will try to have a new chapter up for the YGO fic for this month, too.
01/02/14: Happy New Year to all of my dear readers. I wish all of you an amazing new year. I appreciate your support very much and I thank you for standing by me and being patient even when updates are slow. Will see if I can wake up my muse completely for the YGO fic and have the SM fic updated this month..will try my best to.
10/05/14: Guys I know my YGO fic hasn't been touched in over 3 months and I'm sorry about that..a combination of writer's block/laziness/being distracted..but I am working on it and there shall be an update soon, I promise.
03/28/15: Hi peeps, just checking in and letting you all know I'm still alive. Also, I've decided to put my Sailor Moon fic on the backburner for the time being. But don't despair. I'll get back to it after I am done with the YGO fic, which should be completed in around 10 chapters or so. I promise I will get back to it!!
05/05/15:Hello again folks, I just want y'all to know I started work on chapter 40 of the YGO fic and am also in the process of refitting my early chapters to make them consistent with how I write now. I will let you all know when that's done but be on the lookout for the new chapter.
10/02/15:Hi peeps! Well for the YGO fic I have gotten 14 out of the 19 chapters refitted thus far..1-4 and 7-16 to be exact. Just 5 more and the revision will be complete! So you may want to reread those because some things I have changed. And I will try to have a new chapter for you all this month! With the new movie coming out late next year for us westerners I hope it will be complete/near completion by then so I can move on to other chapters..10 more chapters and I shall be done so it's roughly a bit over 80% (not counting the refit) complete.
11/25/15: Hello all, I am checking in. Chapter 5 of the YGO fic is refitted and up. Will try to have the refit for chapter 6 up between the end-early next month, so stay tuned.
12/06/15: Hi peeps! The refit for Chapter 6 of the YGO fic is up..hope you enjoy..just have chapters 17-19 to do now..almost there!!
12/15/15: All right, the refit of Chapter 17 for the YGO fic is up..moving along steadily...
12/23/15: The refit to chapter 18 of the YGO fic is now up, guys! One more to go!!
12/31/15: Hey guys first of all, I hope you had a great Christmas, also, GREAT NEWS! I have finally finished sprucing up the old chapters for the YGO fic..look for a new chapter next month.
01/01/16: Happy New Year to all my readers! (old and new) I wish you all a wonderful 2016! Also I started chapter 43 for the YGO fic. Stay tuned.
01/05/16: Spruced up my Neph x Naru drabble. Take a look.
01/24/16: Hi all..my YGO fic is updated!! Hopefully the updates will be more often, being that it's the only fic I am concentrating on at the moment.
02/18/16: Well well, I got up chapter 44 of the YGO fic. The fic should be concluded in 5-10 more chapters, most likely leaning towards 10.
04/04/16: Hello all, I hope you had a wonderful Easter. I am happy to report I am making steady progress on Bringing Light Into the Darkness..it will most likely be completed in 9 more chapters..that's what I am going for, anyway. Also in terms of other news I have gotten into Fairy Tail as well as ThunderCats (80s version) and am almost done with Card Captor Sakura.
08/01/16: Hi all! It's been awhile since I wrote anything here. I take it you guys are having a wonderful summer? Mine has been pretty eventful..(those who follow me on DA would know what I'm talking about) not to worry, though, I am still hard at work writing and it shouldn't be too long before there is an update for my YGO fic. Just a few more chapters before it is complete, guys! I hope you're ready and have been enjoying the ride. I thank those of you who have stuck with me for so long. You're the best.
09/26/16:Greetings to you all. I know an update is looong overdue and I am so sorry for that..just that I've had some hectic days since this move and hadn't been in a writing frame of mind, not to mention my muse was being difficult, but it is coming back. May go on a trip this Friday and I'll try to have the new chapter up before then but if not, early next month for sure. Thanks for your patience!
01/27/17: Happy 2017 to all! I wish you guys an amazing new year! I realized I haven't checked in with you guys in MONTHS and I just wanted to say I haven't forgotten you..and I know I haven't updated in a long time and I'm sorry for that..it had been combination of things preventing it..not being in the writing frame of mind, feeling lazy, muse being stubborn, having busy days, just RL in general..but new stuff is in the works. I'll update as soon as I can, so stay tuned!
03/16/17: Still working on stuff. Good news, there will be an update for the YGO fic this month for SURE! Thank you for the patience. Also, get this! I have decided to go pro, meaning beyond fanbased, therefore, I now have a fictionpress account..my penname there is LadyKeren, too. :)
04/01/17: Yay, I finally updated..one day later than I planned to but had a busy day yesterday and the chapter wasn't quite finished anyway..but I hope you enjoy nonetheless and I hope to update again later this month.

At some point I will also attempt fics for Fushigi Yuugi, Rurouni Kenshin, InuYasha, Witch Hunter Robin, Super Mario World and The Baby-Sitters Club, as well as a full-length one for Mighty Morphin Power Rangers..have ideas for them but don't want to have too many unfinished works at once.Also, someday I will refit some already completed fics, mainly the Rayearth ones, Stand by You and the first 6 chapters of Slow Process to Redemption. When I look back at how I wrote back then and compare it to how I write now, I find they are not very good. The premises will be very much the same, so don't worry.
Stories I May Do(Still Thinking on them)
1. Scarred-(Street Fighter/Vega centered fic): After watching his mother die at the hands of his hideous stepfather, Vega is under his aunt's care and she has him see a psychiatrist to deal with the mental scars after recurring nightmares.
2. Twisted Pleasure-(Black Butler/Sebastian x OC centered)
3.

Takes place during Sailor Moon Super season.
4. Deception-(Eternal Champions): A Shadow Yamoto centered fic. An alternate version of her lifestory as told in the video game.
5. Misunderstood-(Eternal Champions): A Mitchell Middeton Knight aka Midknight centered fic. He is treated like a monster because of the disfiguring disorder that resulted from the freak accident. Just when he think all is lost he learns there is a way to find a cure for the disease.
Side note: In my writing I stay true to the canon while writing my own version, meaning drastic changes occur only when I feel the time calls for it. When it comes to information about a character's preference, I stick with what is listed (if it happens to be) and sometimes add in what I can imagine, particularly when there is very little/no information and that's all. While we're on the subject, here's a list of my fanfiction pet peeves:
1. Character Bashing: *sees if I could state my case without ranting* I don't think there's too much I need to say on it but there is no excuse for it..regardless of whether the canon character is likable or not, one should do well to keep in mind that these characters are not theirs to do with what they please and belong to someone else. If the character is gonna be portrayed worse than they actually are, there should be a logical reason/explanation for it, like for instance, being abused for a long time and one day he/she just snapped..or brainwashed..
2. Characters doing things totally in contrast to their personality without logical reason/explanation in a fic that isn't a parody or a spoof: I covered some of it above, but to be clear, I am not talking about mild OOCness, like if a character does something humorous once in a while because the author is building on him/her having a light side although usually serious..I am talking about a generally kind, caring, well-mannered, honest character being portrayed as a mean, spiteful, evil person who is deceitful and has NO manners..or a character who is generally very intelligent or at least catches on quickly even if they don't know about something being dumb as a rock..like I said there should be an explanation for it if they will be written that way..also if the fic happens to be a parody or spoof fic that should be clarified from the beginning in the disclaimer or author's notes.
3. Randomness: Here I mean certain traits just being slapped on a canon character without considering whether it is likely to happen or not..
4. Lack of research: should be self-explanatory, and before anyone goes "we're not in school", I am referring to the details being deliberately incorrect when info is accessible..for example if a character's birthdate, preferences, physical description was given by the creator I go with what is listed..sometimes I will add in what I can imagine but that's all. Or also tackling a rather complicated topic like a certain mental illness or a culture of a certain ethnic group, it is imperative to know the facts and I also tend to be careful with the latter especially since there are misconceptions and erroneous info out there.
5. Yaoi/yuri pairings that make no sense: Now if there is evidence for it, like for example Kunzite x Zoisite from Sailor Moon (90s anime) I go with it but I am talking about the ones where both people involved are shown liking the opposite sex. These are fics I keep my distance from.
6. Badly written AUs: Before I delve into this I will say I generally prefer AR or Alternate History, but I have seen AU can be a very good fic depending on the fandom and how well the person pulls it off so I do tolerate it to a certain point. After all it has similarities to AR, not just differences, which is why they're both used interchangeably. And it can be a way to explore the possibilities or change what went wrong for a person in the fandom. And I know while a certain change is drastic, it can also be reasonable and logical so it's all good. Have found some that I really enjoy just as much as my favorite ARs. But what I mean by badly written is if there is no explanation for the big changes so there are loopholes and I find myself being confused. I also don't like being roped into reading it..again, if the fic is AU or AT (alternate timeline) that should be clarified from the beginning to minimize confusion...but it goes to show not everyone can pull it off. However, if the changes are so drastic that the premise would work just as nicely for an original fiction work (I am talking about where EVERYTHING except the character's name is different) then I am gone. I am not particularly fond of canon characters having lifelong ailments either unless it is likely to happen at some point (like for example, because of the character's unhealthy lifestyle or something), but I will still give it a shot if it is well written, though it probably won't be on the top of my favorites, especially if things don't get better. I prefer to save the lifelong ailments for my OCs seeing as how they're my creation and I can do whatever I like with them within reason.
7. Constant, non-stop drama: Now I am all for characters having to face issues, but if things don't get better for them at a certain point that could get too depressing for me and unless I am in the mood for a good cry, it's a major turn off.
8. OCs being stronger than the main protagonist: Unless the OC is a villain, this should not be happening..and even then the villain should have a weakness..while yes it can be a turn off when a character is weak and can't defend themselves, sometimes being all-powerful, all-knowing and perfect can be even worse. In other words, there should be a balance.
9. Grammatical/spelling/punctuation errors all throughout the fic/chapters: I am not talking about the typo that will happen once in awhile but in every sentence where it is obvious there was no proofreading. I usually let it slide in the case of a learning disability but even then there should be a beta..and there should also be one when English isn't the first language.
Now that I've made some things clear, I hope you guys enjoy the fics I submit here.
