Okay, so I missed an update in September, but that's seriously down to school starting and getting busy with teaching. I've just posted chapter 22 and have already started writing chapter 23, so November's update is good to go, hopefully!
In other news, my friend n9neSTAR got me hooked on Shingeki no Kyogin (anime) and OMG am I in love with Levi. I feel like I'm cheating on my fangirl crush on Squall. But Levi is just so . . . hot!! Like, so freaking hot it's unbelievable.
Lol, okay now that I'm done embarrassing myself (I'm supposed to be 25), I might have a surprise to share with you guys. I'll let you know when things are confirmed. For now, keep your eyes pealed. ;)

A late Happy Squall day to you all. Gosh, time does fly by, doesn't it?
Okay, I know I said I'd update frequently, but life has a way of popping up on you when you least expect it. We had a wedding in the family, and if any of you are Asian, you'll know how hectic things are. Nevertheless, I enjoyed it greatly. Had so much fun and met so many old faces.
Work is starting again, but by October I should be fairly free to write semi-frequently. I'm aiming for monthly updates. And, I've decided I will finish LBD before I start any more AUs. I do love my AUs.
Anyway, chapter 21 of LBD is now available. Can't wait to read your responses, hope you like it!

Just a quick note to let you know I updated Horns today :)
09th June 2013
Yes! Finally another update after a very long while! But, I hope this will be the start of regular updates.
Leather Black Diary has been updated, you can now read chapter 20. I should have chapter 11 of Horns up some time soon, just waiting on Jebus to get back to me with the corrections.
How's everyone else been? I've been MIA on fanfiction for so long. I promise, I'm never gone forever, well unless I'm dead. Hm, okay, let's not go there.
Erm, erm erm, since my last update, things have gotten a little better. Life is chucking a lot at me, and I'm trying me utmost to hit the issue out of the court. Getting messages from you guys really helps, so thanks a lot :)

I'm sorry I haven't been updating anything recently. I never thought I'd let my stories sit for 4 months without a single update. I'm very sorry.
I normally don't expose all my personal affairs here (bar one rant) but I think you guys deserve to know the truth.
Time right now is very stressful; I'm 25 years old, fully responsible for my family, have a full-time job and also study. I have to take on a lot of the duties in my household because there is no one else that can do it. I don't earn much, but I provide whatever I can for my family.
The past 2 years have been very hard. One particular incident has left me emotionally, psychologically, and physically distressed. I'm hurt and often feel worthless. At times I even feel like Rinoa in LBD. Only worse. Much worse.
I hope I can return to that happy place I was at 2 years ago. I want to return to this beloved and enjoyable hobby. Writing for Squall and Rinoa is a passion I can't put in words (ironic enough).
So please bear patience with me in this hard time. Keep me in your thoughts and prayers, and I will return soon. I promise!
- We now have an Image Manager feature which uses images for book covers to our stories (Yipee!). I wanted to know if any of my readers are good at creating pictures, much like posters, that could be used as book covers. Of course, it'd have to relate to my stories - so no yaoi pics of SquallxSeifer for Breaking Through Appearances :P
If you'd like to help me out, then you can send in your images to email@example.com making sure to title that it is for the picture comp, and also give me a line or two for which story you are submitting the picture for and why you have chosen the images you did.
Info about Me: Edited June 2013
Hello, dear reader. My name is Muktha, it means 'pearl'. You will now probably spend 15 minutes trying to pronounce it before succumbing to find a fairly accurate audio. I'm 25 years old and live England (but you knew that from the lovely GB flag I have on my profile :P).
I started writing fanfiction after reading so many great fanfictions by other awesome writers. Reading has always been of great interest to me. I find that reading books for any age, and broadening my tastes to all types of genres, has exposed me to some really great stories. It is for that reason I have aimed some of my works at teen audiences, others are directed more towards young adults, while the post-games are usually for mature readers.
Writing for all types of audiences has developed my writing skills, motivated and inspired new ideas, and enabled me to make some really fantastic friends here.
Other than that, I'm just your average fanfiction writer who (though doesn't have any future ambitions to become professional) loves writing for fun. :)

Some of my stories parody another in some way.
Michelle Haize is a motif in all postgame stories as Squall's love interest. Her character was inspired by Ashbear's Lauren Rachels.
Lauren Rachels also makes a cameo in Horns of a Dilemma.
Zack Fair was initially set to play the role of Mr Nooj in Breaking Through Appearances, but was replaced due to already having a similar role in The Set Up.
In Leather Black Diary (chapter 7), Rinoa and Caraway watch a football (soccer) match. The actual game was based on the FIFA Arsenal vs. Barcelona second leg at Nou Camp.
In The Set Up (chapter 11), n9neSTAR and I play a small cameo as Bailey and Sabrina where our characters are pushed into a fountain by Seifer, recreating the scene in From Riches to Fame where Rinoa and Squall suffer the same fate.
A lot of effort and care goes into my stories and a great deal of that is down to the work you guys put in. So a very big thank you to all my betas.
