Hi. I swear I'm writing something. I might not post it here, and it might not be fanfiction, and it might not be good, but I am. I've recognized what it means to have a need to write.
I say that as I consider majoring in math.
Please note the published/updated date tied to each piece. I have improved substantially over the course of eight years, by which I mean "my old stuff sucks". Things from October 2007 to present don't make me want to claw my eyes out. Journey onward through time at your own risk.
There's currently nothing here that I'm completely happy with.
Be aware that while I throw things off my Favorite Stories list now and then, I tend to keep many older stories around largely out of sentimentality or because they amused me and not because I have an ardent defense prepared for their quality. Something similar can be said for the Favorite Authors list.
3/26/08 - I received word that FFN pulled all... uh... "illegal characters" out of old fics. I used horizontal rules as scene dividers in anything from 2005 on, I believe, but before that? If something seems patchy and jumbly, it was probably divided. I'm far too lazy to go and correct formatting in the many fics I no longer care for.
12/15/10 - For those who are interested, I post things I'm less proud of on my livejournal and not here. In particular, I wrote one lengthy bit of Ike/Soren fanfiction for NaNo 2008 which is on my NaNo journal. I would feel incredibly embarrassed to post it up here at this time, but at the same time some may be interested in reading it, so here's this notice.
2/5/11 - I finished a piece by the name of To Covet which is unfortunately too explicit for FFN. Despite this explicitness, it is actually a rather Serious Business story and I'm quite fond of how it turned out. It can be found on my LJ. Summary: "The circumstances are proper, even if her intentions are not. Micaiah hasn't forgotten Sothe, but her body aches with youth. Stefan sates her incompletely. A reflection on loyalty, longevity, and loneliness (but not quite love)."
