Can I... can I start again? Can I lift that pen once more and finish what I have started... -- July 10, 2014


Current Story Worlds:

After the Duel - Yu-gi-oh
When Yugi defeated Atemu so he could set his best friend free, their friends and companions later moved on with their lives. These are their stories, the stories that happened after the duel.

Book I - Ghosts
Anzu never did let go of her feelings for Atemu, and eventually, she left Domino to become a dancer in America's New York City. But her dreams of Julliard fell short, and refusing to return home a failure, she became a stripper and exotic dancer - her stage now surrounded by the leering faces of New York's underbelly. Yet, when all was nearly lost, the one man she thought gone from her forever reaches out to her from across the beyond in what begins her journey to find herself again and to be with the one she loves. From the present to the past, between life and death, and a journey of thousands of miles through this world and the next, will Anzu and Atemu finally be together and have that chance they denied each other so long ago?

Curious about Anzu's journey? I have created a Google Map that shows most of the locations and major journeys described in Ghosts:

Book II - Tower of Glass (In Progress)
Ryou Bakura never could forgive himself for the deeds that were done using his body, even if Zorc Necrophades did them against his will, nor could he forgive himself for the tragic death of his beloved younger sister Amane. These ripples of the past combined with his recent trip to Egypt in an attempt to help Anzu led to him being abandoned by the last of his family. Amazingly, his savior of the moment is none other than Seto Kaiba, the cold-hearted CEO of Kaiba Corporation and the most famous rival against Atemu and Yugi. However, there are secrets to Kaiba that none know that threaten to surface as Kaiba finds himself fighting the one thing he has always denied himself - a heart. Can these two very different people, these very different men, find a way to each other's hearts that are locked in towers where none have tread?

Book III - Coming Home (Planning)
It was a beautiful wedding, and even though the bride was several months pregnant, no one said a word. Jonouchi and Mai were finally together, at peace, and their first child was on his way. To see them was to see true love shining in their eyes, but even the most perfect of summer days can be threatened by a storm. Mai went into an early labor and the life of their firstborn son now hangs in the balance. In the moments of helplessness and long nights sitting in the critical care unit, Mai begins to write the story that she and Jonouchi kept to themselves, the story of their love that almost didn't happen. It is the story to mark how important this child is to them, and that he is a fighter, like his mother and father. It is a story for coming home.

Book IV - Caught Between (Planning)
Shizuka, the younger sister to Jonouchi, married Honda when she was barely out of high school. After a series of events that throw her into Otogi's presence again and again, she realizes that the green-eyed game designer never let her go. She discovers, that she as well has been living with half a heart. A heart that belongs to both her husband and to her husband's rival. What will happen to her now that she is caught between two men and two choices?

Book V - Dueling Hearts (Planning)
Rebecca loved Yugi since the day she first met him. However, at that time, Yugi only had eyes for Anzu. Even though he had moved on before she died and the days grow shorter toward when he and Rebecca will wed, Yugi cannot help but feel like the memories of his past will cause him to lose sight of the future. Can he let go the memories of his childhood love and see what he has before him or will his heart forever remain locked in a duel between flesh and blood versus memory?

Miscellaneous short stories from the After the Duel world

Stocking Stuffers (complete one-shot)
Mai and Jonouchi are celebrating a traditional fried chicken Christmas dinner in Domino City. Their gifts reveal surprises to one another. Set after Ghosts and Tower of Glass.

A Winter Dream (complete one-shot)
Anzu falls asleep watching the snowflakes through her window. Her dream takes her somewhere she has not been before and a choice she doesn't know will affect her life. The prologue to Ghosts.

Promises (complete one-shot)
A younger Mokuba sits in his locked room unaware and protected from the abuses that his big brother faces. When he sees him, Seto makes a promise of revenge and vows to keep him always. Set before Tower of Glass. Insight into what shaped Kaiba, if you read between the obvious lines.

Real Life News:

Date of Update - 2/25/2012
I've started posting updates to Tower of Glass again. I am also in progress of purchasing my first-home. Very, very exciting, but busy times. Work also has become manageable, so once my move is complete, I should have no problems trying to get on a 2 chapter a month schedule until ToG finishes.

Date of Update - 12/18/2010
I have finished writing Chapter 18 of Tower of Glass, its in post-editing now if you want to call it that. Sadly, I am not posting as often as I want. Unfortunately, I am a lead programmer on a very high-profile project so long days and then I homeschool my son at night, so long nights. I am a woman of multi-tasking. Next week, I have vacation, and what am I going to be doing? WRITING! Yes, I will try to write the next 4 chapters out so I have some updates to start posting regularly again. :)

Date of Update - 11/10/2010
I just posted Chapter 17 to Tower of Glass. There was a hiatus there for a bit. Life took a turn for the busy. Seriously busy. Those who know why, know why. I will try to keep to a weekly update schedule.
