Author has written 10 stories for Sailor Moon, Star Wars, and Labyrinth.
General disclaimer: I do not own any of the source material that I write stories about. If I did, I wouldn't be crying about student loans.
Me, in two sentences: I am Desi. I write, I dance, and I consume an unholy amount of tea in the process of doing both of those things.
Updates: I'm working on migrating my works to AO3, so that eventually my stories can be read on both sites. Right now, you can find Natural Opposite, Saudade, and Prelude of War there!
In progress (yes, I promise):
- Natural Opposite: Not much to say other than that I am working on chapter two. It's been a bit of a struggle trying to translate the full experience of dancing into words, but nonetheless I am appreciating the challenge and can't wait to share the finished product.
- The Imperial Waltz: Part two is written but in dire need of editing. As that is one of my least favorite parts of the writing process, it continues to be an arduous journey ahead.
- Slow Burn: Despite my two-year silence, I'm actively working on it. Since I am striving to become a creature of unabashed honesty, I will admit that I only ever planned the beginning and end, hoping that the middle would magically come to me in a dream. It has not, and I have motivated myself to actively start planning that middle out. Even though it's dangerous, I'm also contemplating a title change to complement the new plot line. Hoping to roll out an update before the calendar officially declares Spring.
Hiatus/Completed/Writing purgatory:Saudade:When I originally planned this out, I saw it being two or three parts long. However, after going back to it, I feel like it ended on the exact note that I wanted it to. Maybe one day if I feel it's necessary will I give it a second part, but for now I'm calling it complete. Drinking Games: Also a story in which my initial vision for what the story should be foolishly trumped the needs of the story itself. Would a second part be cool? Probably. Does the story need it? No. Therefore, I declare this one complete too! Sunder: I love this story, truly, but I always have incredibly shitty luck when writing it. It seems to be the one I lose drafts and chunks of material for the most often, which has made me only want to work on it when I'm sure I have time to get everything done in one fell swoop. Since I rarely have said time, well...you can look at its current standing. After the Rain: This story is Desi's case study regarding the dangers of taking so long to write a story that you end up getting both a high school diploma and a college degree in the time it takes to finish seventeen chapters (because let's be real, that eighteenth chapter is the herald of a three year long silence). Looking back at that story is a rollercoaster of reactions ranging from cringes that have me diving for the 'Delete Chapter' button and curt nods congratulating myself for writing something decent by my current standards. It's unfortunately a story that has developed alongside both my maturity, tastes, and writing ability, which is why it is such a clusterfuck (and why I have sort of written myself into a corner). I have a complete overhaul of the story planned out, including a title change (!!!), but since it would require me to rewrite over 60,000 words (240 pages!) of material using time I could be writing new things, I am extremely reluctant to get started; I am a no-good, very bad writer in this regard. Guess we'll just have to wait until I inevitably get embarrassed enough about the early chapters to do something about it.
