'Ah,' exclaimed Owen, who had drank freely, 'are you alive again, child of the sun and playmate of the summer breeze, after your dismal winter's nap? Then it is time for me to be at work!'
OI! GUESS WHO'S STILL ALIVE AND KICKIN?! >D
And I MISSED YOU, all you nerds! All you mad hatters and demon-slayers, elf-friends and trail blazers, all you adventurers and gypsies and sky pirates and riders of fantasy's winds! *glomps you all* I am returned, my comrades!
So for the past coupla years, I have undergone tremendous personal growth and self-discovery and all that epic spiritual stuff. Under the new and fitting name of MercurialNight, I have returned to the beginning of my inspiration and the first stepping stone in my authorial quest for adventure, freedom, and the undying human spirit's responses to life's many golden pains and treasures. X] So anyways, don't expect too much of me, but I'll be writing in my free time again. I'll be reading and reviewing and active in the community and all that good stuff XD
Witness the rebirth of Night! Dreamer extraordinaire! XD
Let me explain!
What About Reasons? - I would LOVE to continue this story. Love to. I need time, though! TIEEEMMMZ! I know I'm back and better than ever and everything, but you guys, I'm still so horrifically lazy @_@ But lately I've been replaying the game, and I got all up in the Sandsea and Raithwall's place, then all the epicness that comes after that part, and lemme tell ya I'm looking forward to some of those cutscenes. I'm on the verge of inspiration!
Perfect - I have been giving serious consideration to a rewrite. Maybe! No promises, but this crazyboat might just be christened in the coming months or so.
The kind of thing you can expect from me is the structure of Perfect and Reasons: inserting one of my own OCs into a series/story I like. But I do like to write with just the canons, too, when the almighty mind of Inspiration decides that such may be profitable. Anyway, I'll try to update often, but I can't rush. "I am the most incurably lazy devil to ever stand in shoe leather." I get random inspiration and plot bunnies all the time; however, I also lose said inspiration as unpredictably as the shifting sands of time @_@
Oh yeah. I'm always editing my past chapters. I guess I'm a perfectionist that way. Chances are my stories are always changed and better the second time you look at them.
Btw: I LIVE for feedback. It motivates me and I'm more likely to write things. Review, people! It's the only way writers sustain their inner fires and burn through thier unstable mood swings!
Favorite quotes tiemz!! XD (These aren't all of them, of course)
"I write for the same reason I breathe - because if I didn't, I would die."

"Thus it is that ideas, which grow up within the imagination and appear so lovely to it and of a value beyond whatever men call valuable, are exposed to be shattered and annihilated by contact with the practical. It is requisite for the ideal artist to possess a force of character that seems hardly compatible with its delicacy; he must keep his faith in himself while the incredulous world assails him with its utter disbelief; he must stand up against mankind and be his own sole disciple, both as respects his genius and the objects to which it is directed."
"The most important things are the hardest things to say. They are the things you get ashamed of because words diminish your feelings - words shrink things that seem timeless in your head to no more than living size when they are brought out."
