Author has written 100 stories for Sailor Moon, Twilight, Doctor Who, Hunger Games, Harry Potter, and Shinigami Lovers/死神ラヴァーズ.
The most important and most informative thing I could tell you about me and all the rest makes sense afterwards: I like starts.
Think about it for awhile and pretty much anything you can think of that has to do with that word, is probably true when it comes to me. Then add a few more that you haven't thought of, just assume there's more out there and you'll understand me so much better.
The other thing you should know: I get lost and confused by my own thoughts. It makes sense in my head but when I try to say so out loud it either comes out the clearest I could ever possibly hope for and it should have been recorded because I'll never remember how I said it again and it'll never come out in quite that perfect way ever again and because it's so complex but said so simply no one ever understands it fully because their thoughts were elsewhere or they weren't listening and I can't repeat it, I've just forgotten it because I've just seen soo deeply and for one brief shining moment I understand everything and there's peace in the universe again. Other times I get so wrapped up trying to find where that thought thread leads that I just wind up twisting it around myself and confusing myself so much that I wonder what I started with and can't find that end now either, or that thought it purposefully twisty and folds back in on itself and all it does is go in circles because truthfully the ends have welded together after I found the thread and it's a never ending loop, if I found an end to begin with, sometimes I just jump in at the middle.
Oh, 1 more: I like taking cliches and tweaking them just a little. They're still cliches but with just that smallest bit of freshness that makes them their own or in some cases, non-cliche stories, but really, in the end, isn't everything a cliche and has been done before? So why fight it? Why destroy the box when just a line or two outside of it can completely change the picture if you stand at the right distance, not too close and not too far.
Right so, you can ignore a few paragraphs after this topic I'm introducing right here if you want, probably should just skip to the picture descriptions if you want the truth... I just wanted to state here that the stories you'll get out of me will be season/time referenced. I'd divide them up into 7 categories (6 strictly Usa/Mamo/oc). 1. Silver Millennium, 2. 1st season, 3. R season(s), 4. Stars, 5. Crystal Tokyo, or 6. Alternative anything be it reality or universe or timeline or whatever you'd want to call it. Occasionally there's a 7th, and that's considered other characters or crossovers but they're a lot more rare.
Alright, after years of just adding a new thought I've restarted this page's description.
About me: I've been writing and posting since or before (I can't remember that exact year before I switched to this site...) 1999, making this, 2009, my tenth year. I had started with of all things, Pokemon, though, don't let that throw you off, that was in the very beginning, and that was on the previous site before it shut down. I have never posted any of those stories on this site, and I doubt they still exist, anywhere. Now, it is a new mark, year ten on this site, and I feel that I need to expand my wings a little, so, I've gone from Sailor Moon to Twilight. However, I promised years ago that I would move on from the Sailor Moon world, and that might not be accurate, but for a first, I have written and posted the beginnings of Twilight. That does not mean I've given up on the Sailor Moon world. Nor does that mean I have planned for very many stories in the Twilight Universe, I have almost no interest in continuing past a few dives into that world. I'm actually thinking of starting my own originals. I say this often, I should quit writing, then I get a new idea, and it burns to in me to get it down, and post it, so I don't lose it.
So we'll just take it slowly, and see where that takes us. I offer no promises, about anything, ever.
On this day, 1/19/2009
P.S. I have forgotten about a few things I mentioned that I would work on and post, they slip in and out of my memory, as I said, I am a little flighty about some of the earlier things I've done. I WILL update Exploring what Might, Endymion, Taken Away, Shadows Upon the Sun and tell me if there's something else you are mad at me for forgetting. I'll see what I can scarce up.
There is also Arabian Prince, and I'll try to get on it. I have a few other stories that I have not posted that I should but they need to be worked out a little before I start that. I know I complain about other authors who leave us hanging, and I hate to be one too, but I do at least give you other stories to enjoy while I'm procrastinating... that's something at least, isn't it?
(For some reason it says that I'm Australian, and while I'm living here for six months, and I love it, and the people I have met here... I'm still proud to be from the USA.)
P.S.S. I've just decided, not to work on anything new... for awhile... instead, I'm going back and editing and adding to things I've already started. Looking at a few that used to be my favorites, I've learned that some of them are so blown out of portion in my mind and aren't actually as good as I recall. That doesn't mean however that I will be greatly changing some of you favorites, there a few things that I just can't seem to get back into how I was writing a few years ago. It comes and goes it seems with my ability to weave a story you'll like... So forgive any lapses in style... I will probably come back and edit it again in the future... So bare with me... 9/21/09
I have finally finished editing titles and summaries to all of my existing stories of this site. Now all I need to do is keep up with everything going on in my life and provide you with some entertainment. Huzzah!
1 March 2011
On my desktop, waiting updates/writing right now and am slowly adding sentences to paragraphs to:
Blond Adventures P1
Breaking Dawn Over a New Era
When Harry Met Serena...
I am working on them, and hoping to get you updates soon. I hope that none of you are too angry for not having other stories updated at this time... these are the ones that continue to chase me even as I attempt to do other things. However, I refuse to start a new story, though plot bunnies have been attacking me these last few days as I searched for a few of my old favorites I love to read and could not find right away, others giving me ideas... but I chased them away, they're completely thrown in the dumpster right now, just for you guys... Hope you appreciate it!
June 6, 2011... 2011/6/6, 6 June 2011... 6/6/2011...
I have 22 "live" stories that are in need up updates, and 52 either completed, or discontinued/temporarily suspended stories, this means that I'm working on 22 stories, and 52 are pushed way to the back. I hope I haven't pushed aside anyone's favorite stories. I will be going back to them eventually. Right now, my intentions are to finish:
Blond Adventures P1, and keep part 2/the ending of P1 a secret until I can dedicate time to it.
Down For the Count- this one, I should finish shortly... though I enjoy writing it immensely. I have a few other stories I will have to upload but this one has precedence right now.
When Harry Met Serena...
and of course Endymion
after those are finished/consistent updates, I hope to start up again on Undressing Secrets, Exploring What Might, Lapse In Time and Taken Away. Once those epics are finished, then I will work on the others in the 22 section, and when those are finished, then I shall work on dusting off which ever ones you want me to take out of storage. Of course this is all pending on whether or not I don't start a new story any time soon... hehehe...
Ok, so a few things about the book covers, which I wish were available to see on the author's page, *cough*ffnet*hint*cough, but anyways there are some things I needed to tell you about.
1. All the Mamo/Usa pics and being different and yet not necessarily fitting Silver Millenium/present/Crystal Tokyo. That's because they don't represent the time periods. Let me explain.
A. Mamo/Usa as babes... that's for any where they're friends and from that friendship grew love. It's a tender romance.
B. Endy/Sere... you'd think that be for all Endy/Sere's, but that's more... regals meeting and high personalities. Ie, when the characters fit the Serenity/Endymion personalities. Though sometimes another pic better represents the mood of the story, even if they have those personalities.
C. Usa kissing Mamo's cheek (ie bench)... that's when she's the spear-header of the relationship, its about her pushing him and he's a little resistant but not pushing her away.
D. Mamo bending Usa over and kissing her... passionate relationship between the two. Where Mamoru's actually being a bigger person and going after her seriously, even trying to convince her and knocking sense into her.
E. Mamo/Usa embracing... that's when the stories they have they are standing together, ready to face everything head on, together. There is no messing with them, they're a badass team.
F. Mamo/Usa walking together- it's like the bench one but more pronounced... Instead of Mamo just being slightly resistant, he's kind of an oblivious jerk. He's not intentionally being an ass, but he's definitely acting like one and Usa is recognizing it, and isn't very happy.
G. Usa on Mamo's back... Usa and Mamo have broken up and she's actively fighting him to get him back, or apologizing profusely about her behavior and is trying to get him to accept her... not that that story line happens too often...
H. Usa over Mamo... its a bit steamier than the Mamo in charge one, though that's pretty steamy too, but this one is Usa driven rather than Mamo fighting for her. Usa's trying to seduce him or they are together. It isn't used very often either, I like things a bit more... PG13... generally, when I'm writing.
I. Mamo dragging Usa... I'm going to use this one more, Mamo's being a jerk or is trying to prove something to her that isn't always about them. Mamo's in charge or thinks he is and is trying to get her to listen or see or is pulling her somewhere. It isn't always completely accurate but there is at least one scene in there where he grabs her hand and drags her along with him, for whatever reason and it has a point. Or he's furious at her instead of just crushed. Or as in Upon a Flash he's leading her to safety. Whether or not she knows it. I kind of am thinking of using it for Breaking Dawn Over a New Era too...
J. Usa and Mamo looking at one another, they're together and their basking in their love but its a little dark too because things around them aren't so bright, but they're in their little bubble so everything's fine. I originally had this one for Flamingos, but I switched it to "ZZZ..." because of how dark it seems around them and they're the only bright thing.
K. Mamo and Usa kissing similar in style to J, but a little less dark than "ZZZ..."
That's it for point 1, I think, but I had another qualifier I wanted to add, but I've forgotten what it is at the moment. I might come back and edit this when I recall. It was something about how there is so many different ways to go with them that there needs to be different pics that showcase it, or something. If that wasn't it, then that is another point I wanted to point out. Hehe...
2. As for the Seiya/Mamo/Demando/Usa pic, that's actually one that's a lot wider but didn't fit. At least it fit the main two that are mostly used. However I liked the original and I wanted to share that with you. Ail and Haruka are standing on the very ends. I wished it incorporated Umino and Jadeite and... oh I'm sure there was one more, but that's good enough, I suppose.
3. The Usagi alone pic, she's the main focus, there's little else, except her, maybe Mamo and the senshi play a role, somewhat, but they're not the point, at all. She is.
4. Same thing with the Mamo alone pic.
5. The two caped men... That's obvious enough, but that's for when Mamo encounters one of his other selves, or Usagi encounters more than one, or when it's also about him alone but different, though I will try to use the mamo alone pic instead.
6. The three of them, its a family piece, Chibi-Usa is alive and present in the story and it is either in her world or theirs and she's a major character or its about a family unit instead of individuals trying to come together. Individuals might have problems, but it is a family unit.
7. The five girls, its supposed to be more than the five but I really like how cool they look so it works for any story that isn't solely focused on Usa or Mamo or a majority isn't. Whether its a Usa/senshi fic or a senshi fic alone and I mean any senshi, except Pluto. She's no longer from a planet so she's no longer JUST a senshi.
7b. Because she's badass and deserves her own pic. However its only going to be used in conjunction with the time lord, the Doctor, because that's probably going to be the most interesting Pluto fic, standalone, that I can write. If there is more Pluto centered fics, I'll still use that pic because, again, she's badass and it just shows how much.
8. Ah, and now we get to the Jadeite pic. I could have used the babes one, but come on, if a fic is going to be Jade centric, then bring him on! I personally love Jade, he's my favorite general, though I do like Kunz/Mal a lot too. That's probably my second. But I'm partial to my Jadeite. And that pic just seems to scream his personality and my vision of him in TA. Now I have other cool Jade pics saved and some with Rei involved, but nothing seems to beat Jade being Jade. Ahh... Special note, if I could do two pics for this I would, but the others will have to be in sequels. I changed the colors on Sailor Moon and Kamen's in it, it clearly shows what I try to describe for her outfit, but at the moment I can't find it, so when I do I'll use it.
9. I guess 1 more since I always seem to start 1 but never really finish it... this is the Christmas image.
That is all, thank you for reading, if you did. I just wanted to clear the air on some things because really its sometimes hard to follow my logic. :) I'm so glad pics can spark so many ideas and represent what I want them to so well.
Sorry everyone! I just realized that it's been months or YEARS since the last update of a lot of your favorite stories. That doesn't mean that I haven't looked at them, I just haven't had consistent internet or even remembered that I haven't posted.
What you will be seeing updates to soon (which is of course is all relative on whose soon):
When Harry Met Serena...
Breaking Dawn Over a New Era
and a new one:
So yeah, I think that's it for now. I haven't been writing a lot over the last year but I have brushed the dust off of these on occasion, I just haven't gotten far enough to finish a chapter in awhile. Though these are what's currently pulled up.
You never know though, I might end up dusting up a completely different story or writing yet another new one...
I wrote this is my last updated story as well and I'm not sure if you'll read it here or there or not at all but it's here for you regardless... My internet is down again so I doubt I will be updating anything until I get home to the US in December. Then you'll get a lot of updates!
So if you haven't noticed by now what I work on changes constantly and yet stays the same in so many ways.
So this time around I'm saying something a little different, on the writing desk right now:
These are finished but I'm working on making sure they've been written properly, I do tweak them occasionally and sometimes it's a whole paragraph sometimes it's just a sentence I rewrite but it requires me to read the whole thing to make sure it fits in correctly.
-Although a "guest" reviewer obviously doesn't want me to finish it based on their negative review, but I don't write for nay-sayers.
Someone recently reminded me to finish
Even Young Hearts Break
One you haven't seen yet:
I'm not tell you yet. I want to finish it before I start posting. A dangerous feat but then that way all I'll be doing is editing as I post, although I see how well that's worked out in the past... I have a tendency to forget stories need updating once I've finished them whereas unfinished ones do sit in the back corner of my mind taunting me that it's unfinished and more gets written even if you don't see an update.
