Author has written 2 stories for Lord of the Rings, and Outsiders.Alright, if there are even any readers left waiting for either of my stories, "Quest for Immortality", or "In Unexpected Places", than I'd really like to apologise.
Firstly, because of the incredibly infrequent updates. But secondly, because, though I hate to disappoint my faithful reviewers and readers, I'm sorry to say that I think these stories are going to remain unfinished indefinitely.
I really am sorry to do this, but I feel like it's probably the best for me...I sort of rushed into both of these stories, and I've found that neither of them are going the way I had hoped and expected. It would probably take an incredible amount of time - months at the very least, to get these stories the way I'd envisioned them, but there is always the constant idea that I should be updating. The pressure that I'm beginning to put on myself, to just get another few chapters out is taking a toll on my writing. Not only have I found that I don't especially like my own stories, but also that I'm really just not enjoying it anymore.
So, I will continue to write, but just for me, and things probably entirely outside fanfiction, because the writing experience just hasn't been as I'd hoped. As well, I've found that I've been neglecting a few other areas of my life to write and especially to read, so I think it's a good idea to take a break from at least the writing part of it. I'll leave the stories posted, I think, in case anyone wants them.
I want to give a heartfelt thank you to everyone who ever reviewed me, gave me encouragement, or even just read my stories. Thanks so much, it means the world to me! *hugs*
I'd even like to thank those readers that somehow were under the impression that it was a non-gay story - despite the numerous warnings posted - and yet managed to stick through the rest of the chapters full of obviously romantic gay scenes, and then even review, telling me that I should tone it down a bit. You guys, rare that you were, gave me a good laugh.
But I'd like to give special thanks and mention to Cloudburst2000, Mr.Liz, LadyJessy, killslay, Silent Dirge, ModestVanity, and Savage Damsel - you guys were my ultimate reviewers! Thanks so much; I'll miss hearing from you!
