Hiatus - 08-21-2016
There has been a lot that's happened in my life during the past few years, including a number of chronic illness diagnoses and family problems. I recently began graduate school in June to earn my masters in marriage and family therapy and have come to the realization that I will probably not be writing fanfiction for a very long time, if at all again. I simply do not have the time with school work and dealing with my health problems.
Any updates or new uploads from here on out will most likely be gifts for LilPurplFlwr/SSBBSwords and are by no means a sign that I am returning to writing. But before I go, I am posting one last chapter that's been languishing on my computer since May.
Thank you to everyone who has supported me throughout the years and has been patient with my erratic updating schedule. I have always enjoyed writing but I am no longer compelled to create stories and bring characters to life anymore.

It's now been thirteen years since I first started writing fanfiction and eleven years since I posted my very first stories up on this account. I had avoided looking at or even thinking of this account for the last 6-7 years because I was so ashamed by the early pieces from my childhood. I suppose it's only understandable that writing produced at 13-14 years of age would be fairly embarrassing and a natural part of a writer's growth. Just like the human body grows, so must a writer's ability, passing through that ever so awkward and slightly painful prepubescence before finding your style—your voice.
I don't yet feel like I have found my voice, but at twenty-five my style and preferences have certainly changed since those early pieces. Therefore, I don't think it's an accurate representation of who I am as a writer to keep them up. They were an important part of my artistic development, but I think it's a chapter of my life best kept private. I have still written both fanfiction and original fiction throughout the many years I have been inactive on this site (albeit sporadically) and now I would like my account to reflect who I currently am. I'm not deleting everything point-blank, though; just the really old and objectively terrible ones.
The topics I tend to cover are still mostly the same. I still write about homosexual relationships (featuring both men and women); I still have a penchant for exploring the darker aspects of relationships, including incest, masochism, and obsession; I still write angsty and sad stories, although I tend to favor humor more nowadays because I’m generally happier than I was as a troubled teen. Stylistically, AUs and one-shots are still my preference, because it’s always the character development and relationships that interest me more than the details of canon.
I will always hold a soft spot for the fandoms of my childhood, such as Yu-Gi-Oh! and especially Fushigi Yuugi, from which I garnered inspiration for my (ill-advised) penname and where I met my best friend, LilpurplFlwr (moonlighting as SSBBSwords). I do want to do some minor rewriting on the remaining stories, but time is a precious commodity of which I currently don’t have much. But hey, who does nowadays anyway?
Feel free to drop me a line via PM or review. Unlike my sensitive, bleeding-heart adolescent self, I welcome and appreciate any and all constructive criticism that can help me develop my writing skills.
I also post unabashed smut on my alternate account (half of which are giftfics for LilPurplFlwr), if you prefer
Works on Hiatus
"A Matter of Destiny" - Super Smash Brothers: Brawl - Chapter 4 in draft
"Brokering Disaster" - Super Smash Brothers: Brawl - Chapter 3 in draft
"Prototype 547B" - Super Smash Brothers: Brawl - Chapter 2 in draft
"Sullied" - Yu-Gi-Oh! - This is so damn cheesy that I can't even bear to reread it, let alone edit and continue it. But LilPurplFlwr adores it (for reasons that still baffle me), so... it's narrowly avoiding abandonment.
"Tainted" - Yu-Gi-Oh! - This was technically finished in 2004 (man, I feel old), but I never edited it completely for ff.net posting (cause it's rife with teh pr0nz). And now rereading the verbose dialogue and oh-so-adolescent situations makes me wince, so I need to dedicate much time to editing this old piece. Time I don't necessarily have.
Untitled Naruto AU - one-shot from Sasuke's POV, based on the newest revelations in the Naruto manga canon. In very early (i.e. word vomit) draft.
"Are We Alone Yet?" - Fruits Basket - I don't even remember where I was going with this 11 years ago.
