Author has written 8 stories for Harry Potter.
Name: feel free to call me Maya. Most people do. Except my dad's family, they call me Sam which is weird cause there's no way you can get that from shortening my actual name.
Sex: I’m a female if you haven’t figured yet.
Location: Born and raised in Philadelphia. Love it and Hate it but it will always be my home.
"If you are in South Philadelphia, there is a 37 percent more chance of someone opening their door in their underwear."
Just be yourself and if people don't like it, well, screw them.
You can't make a person love you...you can only stalk them and hope for the best.
Like its politicians and its wars, society has the teenagers it deserves.
I want to thank everyone for supporting my stories!! Truly, I love all my readers! You guys ROCK!!!
I just finished responding to like one of the best reviews ever for the Lupin Childe and this is something that came up that clearly I have to address if I don't want people out for my head later on:
Skylar and Harry. Er, yeah. I realized writing that last chapter that things were getting a little...awkward? I thought it might be seen that way but it was my hope that people would think "Oh, they're just kids". Apparently not. This will not be a slash story. This story idea bloomed long before my fan-girl-phase kicked in and it will stay as untainted as I can bare to make it (though I don't recommend you read *any* of my other stories, because if you're looking for het and realistic that is so not what you will find). It will be het ultimately with maybe some vague hint of slash (nothing that should tip the story into that category) as Harry becomes a teenager and might have mixed feelings toward some people. I'm making him out to be a very love-is-love type of kid so I don't think he'd blink twice at a homosexual relationship nor at being in one, but, I'm holding firm on this one. Het wins it. Not Harry/Ginny het if that makes you feel better, either.
As far as his relationship with Skylar goes, due to their similarities in family, interest and age, they do have a close bond that is strictly brotherly in nature. Their interaction that may suggest otherwise in this last chapter especially is in reaction to a traumatic experience. Also, Harry has a bit of an affection craving nature and it wouldn't be in Skylar's own nature to deny him that. I get what you mean though. As a girl, my touchy-feeliness sometimes explodes all over the place. I think I may have to address this to the story's general public and reign that in a bit. But as a side note and a halfhearted attempt at defending myself, I do have six siblings and my little brother was *very* clingy. He always needed a hug and a kiss and to have me pay attention to him or he'd throw a fit. He's 16 now, plays football and videos game and could care less about when I come to visit unless it's his birthday and I have money. The point is, my experience with little boys is fishy at best, but I have seen a more emotional side of some.
Right. So are we all clear? No surprises? If you still have any questions or concerns feel free to review of PM me whenever. I read everything that comes through my inbox. I may forget it for a few days but I definately see it, 'kay?
Have to run. Real life calls
love you all, hitori
Hello everyone, it's been a while, hasn't it? I can't believe I haven't updated TLC since May. That's crazy and super sad. As always, it's not abandoned, I'm just a really horrible person. And yet I still get emails every week saying it's been added to a new alert. It's scary how dedicated some of you are. Nevertheless I'm grateful. Anyway, let's sit down and have a dialogue shall we?
You care nothing for my life I'm sure but here is: I work full time now (promotion last...July?), I'm training to be a manager at my job and studying for said manager test (I got a 84 or 86 back in October and apparent that doesn't mean sh*t), so I make more money but I also have less time to do, well, anything. My social life is nonexistent and I'm suffering from a bad case of "Forever Alone". In early October I had a pretty bad back injury, had to go to the ER, was told to get a Physical Therapist but I'm American and my insurance doesn't cover it so occasionally it flairs up and I self medicate myself to a horrific state every time it does. I'm making plans to save up for a car (after I work on getting a license which I don't have which is stupid) and I'm supposed to be saving for a trip to visit my best friend in Japan (it's not working out well, I have terrible money management skills and even less self control).
As for my stories, well you can pretty much see where we stand by looking at how often they've been updated. I haven't sat down and written anything for The Lupin Childe in months, though I keep telling myself it needs to go through a major re-write/editing. I just can't connect with it in words anymore, my writing has changed too much. It's so hard to get to the f*cking point with that story and it's headache inducing. Not abandoned but jeez.
The No Day But Today Drabbles are harder to get out as well. I love them and the prompts are still floating around on my desktop, but actually writing them... I have had more luck with that though. I have a 3 part drabble in the works that won't be terribly long but it's something. In connection to NDBT, I haven't posted Seasons of Love yet because I actually want to get somewhere with if first. It's in here though /knocks on head/. Somewhere.
The Grand Side of Things, I actually reread this just the other day and decided it's not as terrible as I remembered it being. I have thoughts to revise it. It's not a priority but I've decided it has some potential.
To my new readers of How Doth the Garden Grow, next chapter is almost done. Actually I could post what I have now and it would be a fair chapter but I want to leave you guys at a little cliff hanger because I'm a jerk, so I'm going to force a little more into it just to mess with you guys before it goes up. Yaaaay. Also, if any of you are still waiting for a re-posting of "Changes" this may be the closest thing to it you may ever get so...read it.
Also, I've given it some thought and I really want to transfer my stories over to Ao3. I have an account there I don't touch and I feel like I should. I would still be posting here but then re-posting over there. Not everything at once though. Probably just NDBT and the Drabbles because those are finished and decently ongoing respectively. Maybe Summer Storms and Winter Wonderings too. Those two one-shots are so outdated and insignificant it's sad, but I think they're funny still so why not?
I think that's all. It's mostly just me rambling but oh well. I had a wine class today and I didn't spit out a thing even though I hated all of them so I'm still a tad bit drunk. Forgive me.
Love you guys, hope you here from me again soon,
