Author has written 40 stories for Hanna is not a Boys Name, Red vs. Blue, Halo, and RWBY.

29th/2nd/2012: News on Stories — PLEASE SEE NOTE BELOW THE GROUND RULES!

Ground Rules — READ THESE FIRST!


.:1:. You will not ask L. for contact information and/or personal information. Everything you need to know is in the profile.

.:2:. Please be respectful in all communications you have with me, or I will not respond. Please leave constructive criticism in a review, and not an outright flame. That being said, I don't mind if you pick apart my story for all its worth, just as long as you don't troll; I can understand that many have an eye for error that I may miss, and the nitpicks of the world are my greatest allies here. ;)

.:3:. Subject matter in my fics may include themes of death, violence, language, general nightmare fuel and other content that needs a warning label. Disclaimers will be given at the beginning of chapters when appropriate, or if the theme is recurring throughout the story, in the summary if I can fit it in. The inclusion of such themes is not meant to make a statement by the author, and is merely there for the sake of story and plot. If you feel I have left out a label that needs to be there, drop me a quick PM please.

.:4:. Please use the reviews to give me feedback when you can — a quick, "Cool story!" is always appreciated, but even the tiniest bit of advice is appreciated. All I ask is that my readers give their honest opinion on any mistakes, errors, faults in research, etc., which I can gladly go back to and fix up.

.:5:. I read and review what I feel perks my interest; spamming me with your story will not do. If you want me to come and see your fic, feel free to leave a small note via PM, but keep it out of my story reviews. A quick PM will do, but please don't flood my inbox. Also, due to personal preferences, I don't read or review anything above a T rating.

.:6:. I don't mind receiving fic requests. Have something you'd like to see in a category I've authored in? Feel free to send a PM! I'm always on the lookout for potential plot bunnies, so sometimes even the shortest line of text can get my fingers typing. I will also credit if asked, should I use your idea, but please don't be offended if I don't — all ideas sent are appreciated and remembered for later. Just please don't ask me to write M fics, please, or any heavy romance.

.:7:. Can't think of or don't want to leave a review? That's fine. Faves and author alerts are always encouraging. Reviews sent via PMs because you don't want to use the review system are fine as well. Heck, don't feel entitled at all to review my fics; every view is appreciated all the same. :)


ABOUT THE STORIES ON HIATUS:

Dear Readers,

It has come to my attention that some of my fics are losing quality in plot, writing and characterization. I no longer have the muse to do them at this moment. There are numerous errors scattered throughout the chapters, and it looks as if I did my beta-reading with a monkey at the keyboard. Thus, I am planning to fit a large overhaul into my writing schedule, and edit these chapters while I work on my other projects.

For now, these fics have an indeterminate future. They need reworking, and they need a breath of fresh air. They are, for now, marked as complete, as there is nothing to add to them until I can get the editing done and some new ideas. If you have any concerns, questions or suggestions, please PM me. I will not be taking them down, rest assured; I know they have an audience, and would hardly think of making that said audience lose something they enjoy. But for now, I need a break from trying to update them with new material, and focus on the flaws that, frankly, are jarring to look back at on reread.

Thank you for taking time to read this. I apologize deeply for not being able to go further with these fics at the time.

Regards,

Lex Q. Coverdale
