Author has written 6 stories for Astro Boy, and Angel.
Hello. Sydney here.
it's been a while, hasn't it? this account was made back when i was in eigth grade, at the height of an obsession with Astro Boy and the Buffy-verse. i needed a change. i haven't touched anything here for over a year, excluding when i posted Of Envelopes and Innuendo, because i was feeling nostalgic. don't get me wrong--i love everything about the Astro Boy fandom. i love all the things i wrote for it and all the people i met. you're all fantastic, seriously. my time spent here on this account was really amazing; i'll never forget any of you. i just needed a change, and my writing has changed quite a bit since these days; i've changed quite a bit.
that said, i've moved. i won't post a link or my new penname here, but if you ever want to talk, feel free to message me through this account. i'll still be sure to answer. to be honest, i've been putting off leaving a message here because i never knew what to say. but i've said it now, and it feels good. i'm sure by some chance, you'll find me again. who knows, maybe i'll venture back to Astro Boy someday. feel free to send me a message asking for my other account, and i'll give it to you.
it's been fun, guys.

When Anya (from BtVS; pre-season 3) tricks Alyssa into making a wish about Astro, Alyssa finds herself in a parallel universe where Astro is a womanizer, the Blonde is a sweet & innocent school girl, and the transvestite is something too horrible and too shocking to be put into this summary. What can Alyssa do to change things back to the way they were? Find out in Doppelgangland: Once More With Creeper! (Updated whenever the authoress decides to stop spending all her time watching Law and Order SVU & do something useful...like writing this fic!) :D I'm trying to work on chapter two, but hey, writer's block is a bitch and it's clasped it's spiteful hands around my creativity. Maybe one day I'll be able to work on this some more, but its HAITUS til then. I'm really sorry, I love all of you who've read the first chapter and are waiting for more.
