About the Authoress:
I am a spinner of stories, a teller of tales, a whimsical weaver of words...
...but mostly, I'm a girl with Real Life Responsibilities that take me away from the keyboard. Half the year I'm not even on ff.net. =p In terms of updates, I have a bad case of the Cywscross Syndrome. Er…you can check out that author's profile if you don't get what I mean.
As a side note, I have an account under winged_clef at Archive of Our Own.
You can bother me on my new-ish tumblr too: http://xlethargy.tumblr.com
NOTICE: Back to work in the Real World now. Typing away when I can, at a snail's pace, sigh.
Deus Ex Machina:
Outline finished for up to end of Chunnin Exams & Sound/Sand Invasion, need to refine details afterwards and wrap up the ending. Also, epilogue will include many, many omakes. ;)
-This is probably my first realistic attempt at a crossover. I really like the character of Orihime, and I really hate the fact that Suna got the short end of the stick in the Shinobi World Wars…so I decided to pair them together! Not to mention, there's a HUGE wealth of crack-erific potential in mixing certain Bleach and Naruto characters together so this was too much to resist. Too bad the middle resists being written so much…._; The end is basically done and I'm drowning in Omakes, but we can't put the dessert (or is it desert?) before the main course so yah, gotta work on that.
A Boy and His Dog:
Outline fleshed out for SS invasion/rescue. Need to tie subplots to main storyline for some characters. Need to refine Arrancar Invasion, Fake Karakura Town and other arcs in between. Last sentence of fic is ready as well. Epilogue needs more meat.
-Another "what-if?" fic that started as a brainstorm exercise and exploded into an outline of epic proportions. Which will, eventually, change into a fic of epic proportions. And hopefully, big showdowns and feels and face-offs and all that good stuff. Still working on it, though. I don't want to change toooo much from the source material--so yes, we shall have to go through the Canon Stations of original Bleach plot--because I feel part of the fascination of an AU is comparing what DID happen with what happened INSTEAD. Of course, I plan to skip over parts that stayed the same in favor of advancing the plot from different POVs. Consider this Bleach on fast-forward! It's been a lot of fun thinking up new twists and versions of events that happen in canon, too.
Outline mostly done for Chunnin Exams, Sound/Sand Invasion, Sound Four stuff, need to refine Academy Days, Genin Team placement & Mission to Wave arc. Seriously need to tweak some plot twists and connect those subplots.
-My first real foray into the fanfic-verse, and you can tell--the earlier chapters were written around 3 years ago when my writer's voice was quite shaky. So there's more telling than showing going on, because I wanted to get all of my points across at once. As a result, it drags a bit, and the pacing is quite slow what with the world-buidling I couldn't resist adding in. Hoping to fix this gradually in later installments. I'm actually stuck on a few plot points in the Academy Days (everything after that is far easier to write), which is one of the reasons this fic has been languishing in the background. Just need to figure out how to write myself out of the corner I've backed myself into and it should be all right.
Put the first chappie up since I update so slowly anyways. It's something else to read for you all, at any rate. And a good playground for me to break the 4th Wall repeatedly, muahaha.
-After reading all those Naruto SI fic, I wondered, what's a different take I could use on a now tried-and-true formula? You have clueless SIs, know-it-all SIs, serious SIs, cracky SIs, break-the-4th-wall SIs, etc… Then I figured, aw heck, I'll just write what entertains me and came up with this. Still in development stage, but I have plans to seriously upset the status quo. After all, where's the fun if you don't try to shake things up a bit?
Smoke and Mirrors:
Side project. Just hibernating for now. Awaiting canon manga updates in case Quincy/Shinigami conflict reveals more plot tidbits.
-I did some research for Substitute after becoming a Mizuiro fangirl and this came flowing out instead. It's a quirky little story, more stream-of-consciousness than anything else, and I'm still debating whether to write in present or past tense for the whole thing. That, and whether I should include an entire subplot or leave it as more slice-of-life things…I mean, obviously Soul Society and the Living World went through some things during Ichigo's 17-month dry spell, but what? And then there's the ol' Fullbringer/Quincy drama just lurking in the background. Let's just say there's too many directions this story could take so I'm on hold until I figure out which way to go. My other stories need to be written out, anyways, since they actually have working outlines...
In Lies, Truth:
Temporarily on hold.
-Because truthfully, I can't write romance for my life. But I do like the potential for achy angst and unrequited noble idiocy. And Eriol and Tomoyo just look so pretty together too. Harharhar, I'm so shallow.
Plot Bunnies...have all been moved to tumblr. This place needed a cleanup, so... *shrugs and grins*
