Ha! You thought it would be that easy?!
No, but in all seriousness, I don't really have a schedule other than TRYING to update Tip of My Tongue every Tuesday.
*Please note that all of my stories are updated sporadically as soon as the muse allows for a chapter to be written and edited. Your patience is appreciated.*
1. Have you abandoned [insert story name here]?
The answer is always NO. Whether it's not been updated in a month, or not been updated in more than a year, please note that if I have not marked the story as complete, then it is not abandoned and not finished! My lack of updates is likely due to being blocked on that story for ideas and/or unsure where I want it to go next. I also have a real life where I have a job and a family to care for. This means sometimes there are more demands on my time than just pumping out chapter after chapter of fan-fiction stories. I will return to your favourite story eventually, so don't be discouraged from reading it. You'll get your ending one day soon.
2. Why do you have so many WIPs? Can't you just finish things before beginning new stories?
I have so many WIPs because I have an out-of-control imagination, and sometimes I just get hit with an idea and I HAVE to write it down. And then I get excited about it, and I share it with y'all. Believe me, I know it's annoying that I don't finish a fic before beginning a new one, but unfortunately, my brain doesn't work that way. I can only share with you those things that I DO have. That's the best I can do. I've tried forcing myself to only focus on one story at a time, to the exclusion of all others. It resulted in me quitting fanfic writing for more than a year. So, take what I give you, knowing I will EVENTUALLY get around to finishing every fic I post, or find another author's work to read.
3. Can I use the library scene where Hermione catches Thorfinn Rowle mid-coitus, in my upcoming story?
The library scene featuring Thorfinn Rowle as seen in my work, is the intellectual property of the original Thormione author, Canimal. She invented it as a background for Thorfinn and Hermione, and while I use it with her permission, she no longer gives her blessing or her permission for others to do so, for personal reasons. While I understand the appeal of the idea and the nature of fanon, I would not recommend using it in your work. Be creative. Use literally anything else to get the ball rolling. Have him walk in on her in the bathroom when he's running from the teachers. Have her stumble across him snagging someone out behind the greenhouses. Have him trip her down the stairs. There are a million different scenes you can use to give them a background, or to begin a story. As it's not my intellectual property, I cannot give you permission, I can only direct you to Canimal, but as she is one of my best friends, I can guarantee she won't give you permission, either. Literally everyone who decides to try their hand at Thormione sends me PMs almost identical to this, and so it's a popular idea to the point of becoming cliche, overused, and bothersome. If you wish to write a story about Thorfinn and Hermione, please do so whilst excluding the library scene where Hermione catches him mid-fellatio.
4. When will [insert story name here] be updated again? It's been forever!
It hasn't been forever. Trust me. I have no set update schedules on any of my fics, and I cannot predict when each one will be ready for updating. The ideas come to me for random fics at random times. I do not operate by simply focusing on one story at a time. When I try, I burn out and wander off to eat too many crisps and binge-watch Teen Wolf for the millionth time. I know it's frustrating to wait for updates. It's frustrating for me too, not only because I want to know where the plot is going to go next, too, but also because I get hounded with requests via PM, review, or comments on social media that I'm taking too long, and it literally just kills my willingness to think about certain stories when all I get are abusive and rude correspondence about it. Literally, the worst thing you can do is ask for the billionth time when Howl for Me will be updated because I KNOW it's a favourite despite the wildly skewed Reviews to Follows/Faves ratio (yes, I'm accusing you all of being too bloody slack to leave a kind word even though you hungrily devour the chapters like greedy little monsters), and I KNOW you want to read more, and you just want to read the end, and can't I just hurry the fuck up? Well, when a thousand people ask, I tend to get annoyed even having to THINK about that fic, so for the love of Merlin, stop asking. It will be updated when it's updated and not a minute sooner, no matter the nagging and the begging.
