Author has written 6 stories for Chuck.
So with the economy in the toilet, what's a former lab monkey to do but to work two jobs far below her educational level and not write fanfic?
Yeah... I know. I haven't been around much. All I can do is blame it on reality. It's been tough lately. You guys have probably noticed.
I do want to apologize to everybody about the state of Chuck vs. The Fallout though. It is on permanent hiatus, but I swear that was never my intention. It was a personal challenge I set for myself to see a multi-chapter piece through to completion, and it was a challenge I did not meet. I'm as disappointed as you are. It started with the loss of the flash drive I was keeping the story and notes on. As far as I know, it's still traveling up and down the East Coast via Amtrak. (If anybody finds it, please let me know. There's a lot of stuff on there I want back.) I started to rewrite -- which, as you writers out there know, is incredibly difficult -- but then my personal life got very... well... let's just say it's complicated. And as a result, I took a step back from fanfiction and the Chuckverse in general. And then came Season 3... It rendered my story so completely AU and took my characters so out-of-character that it just didn't seem worth continuing. I know I'm not the only person this happened to. And now, I flat-out don't remember where I was going with it. I read back through the piece recently and saw a bunch of places that I know were foreshadowing or where I opened up plot threads, and I honestly can't remember what I was planning on doing with them. If anybody else knows why Sarah has that seemingly nonfunctional security camera in her hotel room, please fill me in, because I just don't know anymore.
But now my favorite show is gone and I miss it. I don't see new stories coming into my inbox anymore and I miss that too. I'm still working 70 hours a week so don't have anything resembling time to write (or even do laundry), but I want to again. So maybe that will take the form of some shorter pieces to come. I have a folder full of false starts and half-completed stories that may come to fruition at some point in the future.
There's always hope...
