WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT MY WRITING STYLE (YE BE WARNED!)
I have a relatively bad habit of starting things without knowing where they're going (...pretty bad habit.); I get a feeling, or a vague idea, from Felix (my muse, for those of you who don't identify them), and I start writing. Unfortunately, I end up enamored with something, post it, and then can't finish because Felix is mean like that. I'm attempting to work on that, but I'm just warning you - I start crap all the time without knowing if I'll finish or not.
I have a similarly bad habit of starting one project and almost immediately being carried away by another. Stories overlap in updates because I go absolute nuts with inspiration, which eventually dissolves, leaving me with a pile of unfinished stories, some of which end up abandoned or revamped to the point that they no longer even resemble the original premise.
Thirdly, I often threaten my muse with hiatus. When my updates say 'everything is on hiatus' or something similar, there is a good chance something will suddenly be updated soon after the fact. It doesn't always work, but generally that is the trend.
On my muse (as of 6.24.12): Felix has retired from my HP fics...some unnamed female as taken over. XD Fel is still in charge of LoZ and is as ornery as ever. ;)
On my muse (as of 7.3.12): Remember the other muse I mentioned? Her name's Eala. Don't question her and she won't stab me in the brain stem and utterly derail every project I have. Eheh...XD
A (relatively) SIMPLE FORMULA FOR MY WRITING (where / = and/or) IS AS FOLLOWS:
Protagonist (hero): Disillusioned/powerful but inept/genuinely noble
Antagonist (villain): Genuinely evil/sadistic/seeking redemption/genuinely misguided/without a choice
Main love interest (of whomever is the MAIN CHARACTER, be they antagonist or protagonist): Probably someone they loathed in canon. ;) =
My general writing style. You have been (further) warned.
11.17.10: It's Never Too Late has become Momus Sapor.
12.31.10: MS is being uncooperative, so it's on hiatus.
1.17.11: MS is being taken down to be reposted as two separate fics. MS will continue from chapter 10, and the other fic will be It's Never Too Late again, starting from the prologue, and continuing from chapter 9.
1.19.11: INTL, MS, and Depravia (NEW!) have been posted and are in progress.
1.29.11: Don't expect to see me for a while, I overloaded myself while felling into a pit of despair/self pity, and my brain died. Everything's on hiatus.
1.31.11: Everything but Depravia is on hiatus.
2.14.11: I've changed my pen name (you probably noticed) from Roc X. Marius to Americana Psychotica for pending legal reasons.
2.21.11: OH MY GOD, IT'S BEEN TOO LONG! . . .Well, for someone who types a lot, it has. MY COMPUTER (ironically named for McGonagall; don't ask) GOT A VIRUS! But we're good now! SORRY FOR MY MANY DELAYS! -bows in apology-
3.7.11: Ascension and INTL are being essentially abandoned - I cannot seem to come up with new material, though I like a lot of the concepts, and Eeona is my beloved. >..
3.27.11: Depravia is COMPLETE, but ffnet refuses to let me say so.
3.27.11: As I said, Depravia is complete, but its sequel, Flesh, will be posted as part of Depravia until I can actually make it its own story.
3.31.11: ALL MY WISHES ON 11:11 PAYED OFF! Flesh is its own story now.
5.7.11: New computer, more likely to post. . . .Maybe. Eheh. -winces-
6.17.11: I won't be updating ID until I get more votes in le poll -points up-. You want updates, you clickeh the button. -snorts-
8.15.11: EVERYTHING IS ON TEMPORARY HIATUS UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED HERE. Gearing up for school and hell on earth. -geh-
8.18.11: Ignore 8/15's memo. x.x I'm a dummy. XD But it'll be slow going again.
8.18.11 (II): I don't know if it even worked, but feel free to email me if you have questions or the like about my writing, at mirroredinkparadox @ yahoo . com.
10.24.11: I cut my profile down to the basics and necessities, because I don't think you really care about my likes and dislikes THAT much. Besides, I rant enough in A/Ns that you probably know already. XD
10.25.11: EVERYTHING, ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING, IS ON HIATUS. I am taking a break from fanfiction because my muse hates me and I need to work on my own stuff. -salutes- Hope to be back soon enough.
10.28.11: In case someone didn't get the message in DG; Descending Grace is being revamped, to the point that it may or may not even resemble the original story. It will remain under the same name, and will not be deleted - I will simply take out what chapters I have and start from scratch, so if it is on your alert list, you will still receive alerts. Long memo. xD
11.14.11: 'Sup, peeps? All of my LoZ fics are on hiatus; almost all of my HP fics are on hiatus, though some may be updated. I am starting yet another fic that is an AU of Moribund Oracle, in the original format I wanted it to be. They aren't actually related, save for they share a few OCs.
1.30.12: Hiya guys, and super belated by almost literally a month Happy New Year! XD My fics are slowly returning to the forefront of my mind, starting with all of those LoZ fics. I started more HP fics that are trying to bleed out, and Depthless technically SHOULD be done, but it's not because I'm lazy and can't get the words to come out right. XD SO! In order of hopeful posting;
-I: OiaSP; I am planning on finishing this in the near near future. Hopefully I'll crank it out and can get started on those MM fics.
-Depthless; don't count on it, but I WANT to get this done. I plotted it out, now I just need to buckle down and write it.
-SURPRISE VALENTINE'S DAY ONESHOT!; I have most of it written. The couple took me by surprise, because I adamantly denied liking it, but I love this fic. Plan on posting it on Valentine's Day because that's what inspired it, even though I started writing it during the holidays last year. XD
-LP; I really want to get this up and running, because the sequel is eating my brain.
-. . .I actually don't know. But hey, I'll take suggestions and try to write them as best I can, if that appeals to anyone!
So there's your long update. Hope someone's still reading my stuff, and I hope to get something updated soon! ;)
4.11.12: Valentine's Day Shmalentine's Day. XDXDXD Yeah, I managed one of the five things. -shrugs- Well, Roc out.
4.25.12: Wow. Should've posted that oneshot sooner. XD So, working on RoA, but also hoping to pick up that old, bleeding difficult story AI. Have a suggestion? Feel free to message me.
5.2.12: SIKE. AI can eat me for all I care. -.-; But hey, RoA and DG, amirite? XD
5.3.12: Kinda went Ares-crazy. Again. Expect more from that portion of my mind. XD
5.4.12: I can't concentrate...I'm not entirely sure when I'll get back to all my other HP fics...and LoZ fics...I have a gift fic for Z I haven't even begun to fathom, and it's so late. Like, a month late. Crap. x_x XD Eek. Bye. XD
5.6.12: I made the mistake of looking at Flesh again for the first time in forever, and have decided it needs to be revamped. Felix is a no-go, but the original idea may linger nevertheless. Y'all probably don't care - seriously, who even reads Flesh anyway? XD Anyway, update made, revamping beginning. Flesh is being taken down. Ciao, bellas. XD
5.7.12: Spiral Rebirth has been taken down. I am not going to elaborate on Inexplicable Developement past the companion piece (Interlude: Ours Is A Shadowed Past), because the whole thing makes my eyes hurt. If inspiration strikes, I'll pick it up again. Until then, expect more of the Shink fic, By Night My Sun - a twist is coming up. :D XD
5.15.12: Fanfiction, Y U MAKE IT IMPOSSIBLE FOR ME TO WATCH CRIMINAL MINDS!? x_X Anyway. I've come to the understanding that I am open to just about any pairing now, if it's written well. I have to be invested. Does that mean I'll go looking for ANY pairing? No, I'm still likely to stick to my usual -generally slash, what is UP with that?- pairings. ...Irrelevant update is irrelevant. XD Um...
Ah yeah. My muse has fired me and I am now in the midst of searching for a new one. XD I don't know what'll happen in the next few weeks regarding my darling fics.
5.16.12: I am officially a beta! New to the game, but nevertheless, here I am. xD
5.19.12: I...had an update for you guys...Pssssssssssh. Never mind.
6.7.12: WRITER'S BLOCK. That is all.
6.24.12: Working on finishing Depthless. Flesh is inching along. Don't even ask about everything else, I have a couple of fic ideas -all HP DX- that are trying to come along and aren't really. I'm starting to think these updates are more for me than you. XD
6.28.12: Because despite my best efforts, Evil!Link is soooo entertaining, an LoZ AU may pop up here later. XD
7.4.12: Plans! In order of priority as it stands now:
-Depthless (hope to finish this up; dunno when, but we're getting there)
-Flesh (I want this to be finished because it probably won't be read by anyone until it is. xD)
-DG chap. 7 (more DOOOME)
-WW chap. 3 (building this one from the ground up, working to adjust things here and there)
-HP oneshot based heavily on the Orpheus/Eurydice myth (WiP)
-A possible multi-chaptered HP fic, very trippy, still on the fence about this one.
Aaaaand that's it. :D
7.10.12: My muse(s) and I had a disagreement and now RoA is being revamped (AGAIN WITH THE REVAMPING!). So, chapter four is being adjusted and chapter five is being entirely scrapped so that I might retain my sanity. See you in a few, world. See you in a few...
7.13.12: Remember I mentioned my muses and I tend to have disagreements? Well, ignore 7.4.12's note. It was wishful thinking. I'll work on things willy-nilly, per usual.
7.15.12: RoA is being revamped even more so than before. Chapters three, four, and five are being scrapped and changed completely. Spanish everywhere...and none of it checked by Z. Yet. XD
8.19.12: HP fics (written, posted ones, that is) are stumping me. LoZ fics are coming along - specifically, WW and BNmS. I will be on partial hiatus for some of my own personal projects.
10.31.12: Hahahahaha. Been awhile, yeah? Well, NaNoWriMo is coming up on me, and I AM doing it, so I doubt I'll get around to fics, but I DO have a ton of ideas eating at me and fics to finish but the biggest reason for my soon to be continued disappearance is a new comp with no Open Office and I have to put everything on it and aaaaaaugh. So. See ya soonish...Like in a month. XD
3.31.13: You might have guessed, but I'm sort of on hiatus. Ish. I'm just busy. Or something.
