Author has written 3 stories for Escaflowne, and Hellsing.
It's been a while since I've updated anything. Many have probably given up hope of me ever updating anything, and while I wish it weren't true, I just don't know if I can update.
Things have changed, drastically, in the past few years, and even more so in the past few months. The works I have written fanfiction for are works I no longer actively enjoy. I've tried to reboot the two active works of fiction, and lost interest through different chapters. It's difficult to slog through a chapter, editing them, when my mind is consumed with other things.
To those of you still reading and reviewing, or even waiting for updates, you have my utmost thanks and my sincerest apologies. Thank you, for taking the time to read and review my works.
Mildly Important Note:
1. If I don't review but do favorite a work, please don't take it personally. I often don't review every chapter, and won't review unless I actually have something to say.
2. Remember: A constructive review isn't a flame.
3. Don't dock OCs automatically: you might wind up surprised.
4. Remember your formatting.
5. There are resources all over the internet to help with the writing process. [tumblr is a good way to find many.]
6. There is beauty in simplicity.
7. Don't beat yourself up or force yourself to write something you have literally no inspiration for. You'll just wind up with a shoddy piece of work you end up rewriting at a later time...after you're finished cringing every two words.
8. Always remember what it was like to be that newbie writer.
9. In relation to number 7, write in short bursts if writing a full chapter in one sitting is too daunting. In a week you can wind up with a nice chapter, and typically you'll get extra bursts of inspiration that can help you avoid writer's block.
10. If you are prone to Writer's Block, consider only posting when the story is outlined, and several chapters are finished. Having a clear idea of what you want to happen in your story, and how you wish to conclude it, is invaluable.
11. Remember: you do have the ability to Block Users.
12. Don't chew someone out just because they're writing something you don't like/approve of. Back right the heck out and move onto the next story. If needs be, report it and continue on your way. I'm seeing way, way, way too many writers being subjected to some horrible harassment because of what they write. Stories aren't always going to be bright and glorious, everyone gets a happy ending, everyone is mental stable/sane, everyone gets the guy/girl/whatever of their dreams and all mushmush tearjerking. Life isn't like that, either, and maybe it's a nasty reminder and you just want to get lost in something that allows you to pretend everything's alright, but if that story doesn't fit that bill, move onto the next.
Just because someone writes about something horrible, doesn't mean they condone it. That I even have to take time to explain this is disconcerting.
13. Don't get tripped up by too many details.
14. Remember: writing is something you should enjoy- if you don't enjoy writing what you're writing anymore, don't feel pressured to continue.
