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. 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.
