Author has written 8 stories for Inuyasha, and Naruto.
It occurs to me I should probably put up some sort of update since my last one was a while ago. Unfortunately, things haven't changed a whole lot. Still fighting with Worker's Comp trying to get treatment, but on a plus side, I'm on a lot better medication for pain management. That definitely helps an enormous amount, but it's still not a real fix. Granted, I've gotten tired of waiting for them to actually approve of any of my PT, so with the help of some amazing friends, I've been trying to put together some stuff on my own. So here's hoping that it makes a difference! :D
On the writing side, the info in my last announcement is all still pretty accurate. I'm still slowly but surely working to archive everything at the lemon_grove LJ community, and there's a few things that are likely going to be Lemon_Grove exclusive posts. Gifts, parodies, etc etc. But that comes after I finish doing what I have to do: making calls to try and get my adjuster, going to my appointments, doing my PT, and just general "gotta get done" stuff. Then I've been doing more convention work too, writing web content and even a couple articles. It's hard, it wipes me out like crazy, and my back usually hates me by the time I'm done, but I still really love doing it.
That's pretty much all that's going on without rambling into mass details and making a bother of myself, so I'll leave it at that. I'll just say thanks to all of you for reading and for your reviews and comments. I really love hearing your thoughts about what I have posted and I appreciate all the well-wishes for what I'm dealing with right now. I haven't forgotten about my fanfics, but they're absolutely on the back burner until things get back on track.
So here's hoping your luck and health are WAY better than mine!
An update for those who still come wandering past this spot.
The court side of the injury is over with less than ideal results, however, it has gotten me in to start seeing doctors again. I’ve started treatments with my new specialist, and had my first surgery a couple weeks ago. Depending on how everything takes, I'll either be continuing these procedures indefinitely, or moving to something new. I have follow-up appointments this month, so I may have a better idea on my outlook soon.
My unfinished stories will still eventually be finished, but I can’t give a timeline. I have many other things occupying my time that take priority over a hobby at the moment, but the end will come. In the meantime, if I post a drabble or a parody once in a while here or at Mediaminer, I would still appreciate it if you could refrain from reviewing with questions about when I’m updating my other work. The answer will always be the same. It will be updated when it’s updated.
Just like readers are under no obligation to review a story just because it exists, no one is obligated to read what I’ve written. And just because I decided to post a story, that doesn’t automatically obligate me to entertain you on demand. Those of you who feel I should be personally catering to your every whim and desire just because you have access to the internet and can write a review or an email, I would rather you find a different author.
As “Guilty Pleasures” has shut down, I'm going to be archiving my work on the LJ community: Lemon_Grove. Turnabout is Fair Play will be posted there in its entirety, as will my other works. If you don't see it up yet, please be patient. It's going to take me time to get everything uploaded. It’s still impractical for me to email individual chapters. I’m sorry, but no amount of asking will get me to do so.
Thank you for the patience and support from those of you who’ve been understanding and even sent me sweet emails. I may not reply to them all, but I do appreciate them. I can say I’ve gotten a bit more apathetic to the nasty emails. Not to say I enjoy them, but they’re easier to brush off when you have more important things taking your energy. Also, before you decide to email me accusing me of plagiarizing a story, I suggest you check your dates before you stick your foot in your mouth. But thanks for pointing me toward a few things that needed to come down. I understand a lot of my ideas have been “reinterpreted” over the years, but I still don’t much tolerate the brazen rips from people who haven’t asked permission.
Turnabout will be completed some time in the future. Grey Eyes IS complete, but I’m revising little things to smooth it out when I have spare time. The one-shots are one-shots. CSC is a gift for Devin and will also be completed, but posted in its entirety elsewhere due to content. The Naruto stories are gifts to Saro, Porcelain, and Sintari that are not to be taken seriously.
Thank you again for understanding that I have much more serious things going on in my life than fanfiction.
