(Really, I'm a fan of taking two characters--often portrayed by the same actor--and figuring out how to meld the two together. I'm very big on exploring the concept of identity in these scenarios.)
Update: (12/7/17) Well, I managed to make another comeback before the year was up! False Faces now has its tenth chapter, which was exciting because I finally got to use some ideas I'd had in mind for... nearly seven years (goodness...). Flash Before Your Eyes still has that fourth and final chapter upcoming, which has been started but still has a ways to go. As much as I love working on these pieces, they--False Faces in particular--require a specific mindset, oftentimes accompanied by nostalgic rewatches of one or both shows. However, my job consumes most of the time and energy needed to get into this mindset and write, so please bear with me as I gradually work through all of this. I have every intention to provide some sort of ending for both False Faces and FBYE, it just might take a little while.
(4/11/17) Okay, I'm just going to put this out here because of my previous track record: I promise, I haven't vanished again! I just happened to pick a really awkward time to have my Chuck/White Collar and fic-writing-in-general revival period. The writing started up again while I was in-between jobs, and I ended up getting a new job a day or two after Flashes In Between went up. The past month has been a maddening scramble to get situated in a new city (and a new state) and to adjust to my new work life, so unfortunately fic things had to be put on the back burner (also because I don't really have access to Word right now). But once things start to calm down and I can slip back into the right mindset, I'll be back. FBYE Chapter 4--as well as False Faces Chapter 10--have at least been started, so I won't be starting completely from scratch after all of this. Thanks for your patience.
(3/18/17) While I was trying to figure out Chapter 4 of FBYE, I ended up writing about 4k of a story about June and Chuck writing to each other about Neal-Bryce. Because I'm oddly impatient these days, I ended up releasing that as the first installment of Flashes In Between. So yeah, another new story… The Flashes 'verse is meant to be short (FBYE's last chapter is in progress, and I only plan to have three or four In Between stories), though, so long waits likely won't be an issue. Still, it's just weird to have multiple ongoing stories all at once, after all these years away.
(2/27/17) In the wake of my False Faces return, I dug up another Chuck/White Collar draft that's been in my documents for years and fixed that up. This document ended up becoming the first chapter of Flash Before Your Eyes, which I just published. I'm planning for this story to last about three chapters (maybe four, depending how things go with the third chapter), and the next one is almost ready to go, so no five-year wait here!
(2/24/17) I FINALLY UPDATED FALSE FACES!!!!! No, this is not a drill. There's a much more in-depth explanation in the author's notes of that chapter, but I basically got slapped by nostalgia and I ended up having a lot of fun working with the story again. It's still doubtful that I'll ever fully complete the story, but there's a chance that there will be a little more to it before I officially close up shop on it.
As for my presence on here, I will likely keep using this platform purely for Chuck/White Collar stories (current/ongoing and potential future pieces), but most other new material will be available solely on AO3. It's still very much a work in progress, since I so rarely have the time/inspiration/interest to write these days, but if you'd like to read more contemporary pieces with my current writing style you can find me over there.
