I am taking a break from writing fanfiction. I have no idea when (or even if) I might resume anything here.
My blogs (each is a subdomain of webs . 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. (And, if you've just started reading BIDKIM, don't try to show how clever you are by guessing what happens next or who somebody "really" is. It's complete, so read it, enjoy it, have fun. It's not like I'm going to go back and change anything.)
I'm not sure when or even if I might return to writing Wrestling or Highlander fics.
As for what remains "in progress":
Seconds: I've always known where this story is going, but I want to get it just right, so it's on the back burner until I can give it the attention it deserves. I might tweak the story, file off the serial numbers, and publish it.
TKoGICL: My mind keeps leaping forward on this one, and I have some of the future scenes written, but it would not do to leap ahead without all those little bits that will make it make sense. Not sure if I'll continue this or work it into the narrative of the reworked "Seconds". I could very well rework the beginning and eventually publish this one.
Girl Meets Timey Wimey: As much as I was enjoying writing this, I'm not sure when I might continue it. I've been having trouble figuring out the next chapter, even though I know where the general story goes.
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 how long this one will go, 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. I have, however, given Cupcake de Winter some of my old notes since she still finds doing this a fun writing exercise.
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.
