Author has written 15 stories for DarkWing Duck, Balto, Chronicles of Narnia, and DuckTales.
Hello, and welcome to my profile.
Goodness. It's been a while. The last time I posted a profile update was January 2013. I had forgotten that I changed the e-mail address that I use for this account. I didn't understand why I couldn't log in with my old one. Hehe. Silly me. I've gotten that squared away now.
I do not have any new stories or updates to post. I spent a lot of time traveling in 2012 and 2013. I went to California, Nevada, Florida, Ohio, Alaska, Maine and all up through New England. That kept me pretty occupied.
On a sadder note, one of my best friends passed away suddenly in June 2013, and I lost what little motivation I had to work on my stories or read any one else's. But no matter what happens in my life, I am grateful for the journey. I thank you for reading, and I can assure you that the characters will always be in my heart, even if they are no longer in my thoughts or dreams. (I'm serious. These characters peppered my dreams and my subconscious for months when I was engrossed in writing. I'm actually a little thankful that I took a break from them. Lol. It's nice to have peaceful, somewhat normal dreams now and to have a few nights where I don't dream at all.)
By the way, helpful critiques and suggestions are welcome. Spam, trolling, and unhelpful comments like "dis sux" will be removed. I do not plan on updating any more of the stories I've posted, but if I have made an error in my newer stories, please let me know so that I can pay more attention to that detail in the future and improve. I'm aware that my oldest stories have some characterization flaws. Now that I've become more familiar with the comic book version of Scrooge McDuck, Donald Duck, and the triplets, my characterization of them is driving me nuts! Lol. Unfortunately, I do not have the patience or the time to go back over all of my stories to give them extensive revisions.
Please note that the date my stories were posted does not necessarily reflect the month or even the year that some of them were written in. My first three Balto stories were written between 2004 and 2007, for example, and my oldest Darkwing Duck stories ("The Villains Revolt," "My Daughter, My Life," "Neighborly Secrets," and "Until Proven Innocent") were written during nights when I was plagued with insomnia or depression. Excuses do not excuse poor writing, but it is difficult for me to proofread material written during those times as it brings back memories I do not care to relive. I am grateful to BeecroftA for his support, suggestions, and help editing "Best Present Ever," "The Duck Knight in Duckburg," "A Hero's Ultimatum," "The Duck Who Never Dawned," and proof reading "Luck of the Beagles."
That's all that I can think of to mention. If I have any news, updates, or stories to announce, I will post information on my deviantArt account. http://lupineleigh.deviantart.com/
Thank you for stopping by and best of wishes. :)

ALL the characters and settings unless otherwise noted belong to Disney, Amblin/Universal, or Walden. I make no profit. I fully respect these companies and their work and I have no problem with rewriting my stories by removing all copyrighted material from them and coming up with my own character names and personalities and such. (I've already done so with two of the stories posted here.)
Please note that, although I reference specific episodes or printed articles on the characters/settings, the purpose of my work is NOT to replace or slow public sales of the originals. I pick up where the original works leave off and create new situations for the characters to face.
My purpose for writing is to educate the public on the original copyrighted works, and build/expand the fan base for the original copyright holders. Also, while I understand this does not give me permission to use the copyrighted material, I have personally purchased legal copies of the DVDS, soundtracks, comics, etc. from stores for private viewing at home. I support the companies of Disney and Universal and I'm a devoted fan. If you would like for me to make any changes, including deleting material from my work, send me a private message and I will cooperate fully and refrain from future infringement.
The stories, place names, names given to previously unnamed characters, and new characters (ex: Dr. John Henry Harper, Scraps, Dr. Medley, etc) are my original ideas unless otherwise stated, copyrighted, or commonly accepted in the fandom. (ex: I couldn't figure out who the original author was that coined the name "Troublemaker" for one of Negaduck's motorcycles.) "Mrs. Beaker" in "A Hero's Ultimatum" and "Jacob" from "The Duck Who Never Dawned" belong to BeecroftA and me.
I did not intentionally infringe on any users here and made a large effort to note any author's work that specifically inspired me. Other stories may be similar to mine, but any relation is coincidence. Thanks for stopping by!
