I am taking a break from writing fanfiction. I have no idea when (or even if) I might resume anything here.
I am, however, working on putting my fanfiction up at maladypond.comuf.com
I am no longer writing phanphiction (that is, stories based on Gaston Leroux's Le Fantôme de l’Opéra) for a very simple reason: I plan to publish what I consider the better stories (including some I've never let anyone read before).
If you were reading my fics back in 2010 (or thereabouts), you probably saw a story called Immortal Music. I was very proud of that story. At first. The sad part was that so many people mistook it for a romance that I kept making it darker and the villain (who was mistaken for the hero of the piece) more violent until it was a bizarre parody of itself. I have gone back to it over the years and attempted to rework/excise the ludicrous parts, but I'm afraid the *$#% reviews calling the rape scene "hot" and the villain "so romantic" ruined it for me.
As for my House fics (aka the Grayla series). I'm working on filing off the serial numbers so I can turn those half-finished stories into a book (or, possibly, a brief series). I've had their whole lives in my head for some time now, and I'm slowly putting them into narrative form.
There are times I'm tempted to take But I Don't Know You, Monsieur! down, mostly because I want to go back to the original idea I had for that one and publish it. As it is, it wound up going in a drastically different direction from where I wanted to go with it. Christine turned out to be a bit younger (more trusting and naïve and, let's face it, childish) and I'm afraid I may have engaged in a wee bit of Raoul-bashing. *shakes head* I'll leave it up for now since the rewrite will not follow the same structure/narrative.
I'm not sure when or even if I might return to writing Wrestling or Highlander fics.
As for the rest:
Seconds and TKoGICL: I've taken both these Harley Keiner-centric stories down because I plan to rework them and publish them.
Girl Meets Timey Wimey: As much as I was enjoying writing this, I will have to go back to what I had originally planned for this story and rework it. It's up at Malady Pond, but I'm not sure when I'll continue it.
Tempting Fate, Charming Dreams: I know, more or less, where this is going. I don't know how many chapters this one might go. Fair warning, though, it's going to take some dark turns that will disturb some readers. (Trust me on that.) (I'd had this one up on my other account, but I didn't particularly like where I went with it, so I made some changes that I think/hope will work out better.) Another one I might rework and publish.
Stand Strong: I had intended to keep this one short and wanted to complete it before Captain America: Civil War hit theatres, but . . . Taken down because I don't think I'll continue it.
Fire & Frost: Trouble with this one is that I know how I want this story to end, and I don't want to rush towards that or give anything away (and, so far, there hasn't been any foreshadowing, no). No idea when I'll get back to this one, either.
Good-Looking Guy, Master of Disguise: Complete, but if any of you want to use it as a jumping-off point for a sequel, feel free. All I ask is that you make mention of it somewhere (be it in the Author's Notes or your profile or wherever). It's not meant to follow the series exactly; it's just a bit of something I felt like writing. At this point, I doubt I'll be writing any follow-ups to this. I've taken this one down.
Peace & love,
I have not given anyone permission to repost any of my stories on other sites.
(Nothing that follows falls under the copy-and-post to your profile category; these are things I wrote myself, for my profile.
I write because there are too many ideas clanking around in my head.
I am the woman who was shamed for being raped because I agreed to go out with him and wanted to look nice; I must have been asking for it.
Think before you condemn someone. You never know what another person is going through. Hatred doesn't help anyone.
Your beliefs do not outweigh my health and well-being. Your beliefs shouldn't outweigh your own health and well-being, either.
If the people around you encourage you to hate anyone or make others feel ashamed for something as simple as a difference of opinion, maybe you should reconsider such associations.
You know you're a writer if . . .
Failing English means nothing with regards to writing ability. I not only passed, I got high marks in English every year. Stop claiming failing a class is the number one way to tell you're a writer. You're a writer because you choose to be. Or, as Rod Serling so succinctly put it, you succumbed to it.
I am taking a break from writing fanfiction. I have no idea when I might resume anything here. My fanfiction is up at maladypond . comuf . com. I'll have a subscription site for my original works in the near future, as well. Thank you for your interest in what I have to say.
