Uh, well, I write a lot. Too much, actually. My updates are really slow, because I always have writer's block. We have one laptop at home, and it's a bit iffy with functioning correctly, or is often being used by others, which only decreases the time I have to do much of anything. I can't go more than four days without being sick, not even counting my near daily migraines that I inherited genetically, or my life long problem with insomnia, so that doesn't help much either, meaning asking for quicker updates will accomplish literally nothing at all, except causing me great exasperation and irritation.
I'm currently in the middle of writing a great many different works. They're a mix of fanfics and my own novels, none of which are near completion. So demanding faster updates isn't going to do much. Though it may take forever, I will never abandon any of my fics. Or at least, I'll try not to. Can't make any promises. Things may end up on hiatus though.
As I've never been complemented or encouraged in my entire life, reviews help me far more than you may think. Constructive criticism is annoying, but welcome. Flames and trolls will be ignored.
Because I'm lazy, I don't normally reply to reviews (unless they contain a question or statement I'd like to answer), but I truly appreciate all of them. Well, the positive ones, at least. I may not say it in every chapter of my fics, but I appreciate all favourites, follows, reviews, and readers in general, especially those who say they went out of their comfort zone in reading something I wrote, and enjoyed it.
And for anyone who cares, I'm twenty three, struggling to live with severe depression and anxiety, and trying to figure out what I want to go to school for. Maybe languages, since I'm fluent in five of them, and learning a sixth.
Because of a few recent idiotic flames, I, unfortunately, feel like I need to give you all a bit of a warning here. If one of my fics is rated M, it is done so for a reason, meaning I expect you to be old enough to read it, without it offending you in some manner, whether this be by coarse language, violence, or sexual content. If you're underage and still read it, well, there's nothing I can do about that, but you can't complain about getting upset over something that happened in it, seeing as you technically shouldn't be reading it anyway. If you are old enough, and still get offended, then I don't really know what you expect me to do about it. Just don't read it.
Along with that, if the usage of curse words, no matter their severity, is something that offends your delicate sensibilities, then you, for the most part, seriously shouldn't be reading anything of mine rated T or M, because I use a lot of those words, sometimes more often than other times, particularly a four lettered word that begins with the letter 'F', which happens to be a favourite of mine, seeing as it can be used in most any context. So yeah, if this isn't something you can deal it, well, don't read my stuff, simple as that.
I don't have an updating schedule of any sort, and post new chapters the moment I can, so don't bother looking for a pattern to my updates or anything like that, because there is none. If one fic is updated at least twice in a year, you may as well consider it a miracle. But basically, even if something hasn't been updated for a handful of years, I can almost guarantee you that I'm still actively working on it, or at least trying to. Generally, if I abandon a fic, I delete it, so if it's still posted, then it hasn't been abandoned. Not having updated in a few months means literally nothing. I could be working on a different fic, I could be wrestling with a plot bunny or my muse, I could just be spending my time doing things that aren't writing because I'm just not in the mood. So don't worry. I'll get back to whatever you're waiting on. ...Eventually.
I'm currently in the middle of rewriting/editing a few fics. New chapters will not be put up until I've finished reworking them. Thanks for your patience though.

As of April 1, 2015, I'm also now on AO3, under the same name, so you should be able to find most of the fics I have on here, over there as well. Some M-rated fics from here will probably be rated Explicit over there. Remember, it's the same pen-name, so don't freak out if you see my work there or here. They're both me. I'm still in the process of posting work there, so you won't find everything yet, though all new fics will be posted on both sites.
Pet Peeves of fanfiction: Now, don't take this the wrong way. I absolutely love fanfiction, and I hate the stigma surrounding it, because it's helpful to many people in many ways. No matter what people say to me, I'm not going to stop writing, one-because my ideas won't stop coming, and two-I write for myself before I do anyone else. Despite my love for this however, I, like many others, have developed a few pet peeves concerning this entire thing. The following are in no particular order, by the way. I find them all to be equally irritating.
1. Reviews only saying 'update soon': I'm always very pleased to see I've received a new review, and while I understand a lack of time or laziness plays a part in it, I'd like to know whether or not they actually liked the chapter. Since there's generally no elaboration, I've come to the conclusion that it means they like it, and thus, wish for another chapter to be posted soon. Am I wrong?
2. Anonymous flames/trolls: While annoying in general, as most will no doubt agree, I just see people who anonymously leave negative comments as cowards. Of course, some naturally, don't have accounts, and have no choice but to leave anon comments. Still, isn't it rather baffling that the majority of negative reviews are left by anons? And if they do happen to have an account, more often than not, they've yet to post a single story of their own. Hmm, I wonder why?
3. Criticisms about the littlest, most ignorable (pretty sure that isn't a word) things: Really? Do I even need to elaborate? Nitpicking is annoying, especially when the thing being complained about is, in no way, impacting the plot of the fic or the ability to read it.
4. Quicker updates and longer chapters: No. Just no. I don't believe in miracles, and that's what this would be, coming from me. I understand the desire for having more to read, but my chapters shape themselves. It isn't as if I've purposely set a limit or anything. If it ends up being 3000 words, or 7000, or more, or less, I don't know. And frankly, I don't care. My chapters end when I feel they should. That's it. And asking for quicker updates won't make the bunnies run any faster. My fics aren't complete when I post them (unless it's a oneshot), meaning I do have to, you know, WRITE the next chapter, while RL continues to ram my head into the ground. My brain and hands won't work faster just because of the impatience of others.
5. Suggestions that come across as demands: I'm always open to being offered ideas, even though there's no guarantee I'll end up using them. I love reading these ideas, because there actually have been times when I DID end up using them, surprisingly. Unfortunately, some leave demands, rather than give suggestions. I don't know why they come across like that. Maybe it's just the way they're worded, but they're irritating, because who even likes to be commanded to do things? My reaction to those is always, 'Don't tell me what to do!'
6. Complaints about having too many WIPs, but insistence for oneshots to be expanded: So? Do they want more? Or do they want less? I'm honestly confused now. I have too many things in progress, but when I post a oneshot which is, naturally, complete, they want that to become another WIP? But, don't I have too many of those? I kind of feel like this is a paradox.
7. Continually asking if you take requests even if you've said no more than once, and asking to 'just try' when you refuse to write their ship because you can't, don't want to, or aren't comfortable with it: No means no, seriously. If I've said no five times, I'll say it again the sixth or twentieth. I did try to take requests before, but it just isn't something for me. It stresses me out way too much, and writing is what I do to try to escape that, not add to it. People are just too impatient (understandably) for the time it takes me to write something, and I just feel like I can't write anything good when someone else has asked for it. Like I said before, I write mainly for myself, and I know what I can and can't do, and what I do or don't want. That doesn't apply for other people, hence the difficulty I have. If I say I don't know the fandom, don't tell me to go watch/read/play it, just so I can write for you. That just comes across as ignorant and rude. If I say I don't ship whoever the pairing is, don't tell me to read other fics about them, because that's just as rude. Instead of spamming me (like some do), why not try to write what you want yourself? Or ask someone who actually DOES take requests on that fandom or pairing, instead of someone who keeps refusing?
8. Skip over AN's and then complain or criticize about something already mentioned and taken care of in that AN: This one is particularly irritating, because it happens to me a fair bit. I understand a lot of AN's aren't worth reading, but they can at least skim over them, just to make sure they aren't missing something important. It isn't that hard, won't take more than a few seconds, and will save them the time of typing out a complaint, and me reading and getting upset over it, especially as it is, ultimately, pointless.
9. Pointing out typos or spelling mistakes while using appalling grammar: I'm hardly perfect, and I do make mistakes. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if there are a few typos somewhere in this list. I'm always glad to have any errors pointed out, because I do end up missing a few while editing. But when someone who very obviously can't spell, attempts to correct me, it's equally annoying as it is amusing. Perhaps they should edit their review or PM of telling me of my mistakes before posting it?
10. 'Your idea isn't original!': Did I ever say it was? I write a lot of cliched and overused ideas, but I always mention that in the first AN of the fic. Oh dear, do we need to go back to number 8 again? Once I get the overdone ideas out of my system, I'll start on the more original ones. Cliches are cliches for a reason, after all.
11. 'I had to read back to remember what was happening': Good for you. If my chapters are as short as most say, it shouldn't have taken that long to read through the fic again. My muse isn't going to stay any longer, or work any faster, just because they had to read things over again. I live with an emotionally blackmailing mother. Guilt trips don't work on me anymore.
12. 'I wish this was complete' or 'I won't read this until it's complete': Have fun waiting then, I guess. They might never read it, for all we know. Maybe it'll be abandoned. Maybe they'll stop caring about fanfics by that point. It isn't as if I know how long it'll take to finish something. They'll certainly be waiting more than a few months. Maybe even a few years.
13. 'Well, you haven't updated for (...) days/weeks/months, so I'm taking this off my follows/faves list: Kaythanksbye. I'm not going to magically update just because they said that.
14. 'I like it, but when's the smut going to happen?': I love smut too (who doesn't?), but if they're that impatient for it, why not read a PWP instead? No plot and all smut, right? Or would it be preferable if I skipped through all the plot and just let them have sex? The characters will shag when the plot calls for it, otherwise nothing will even make sense and there would be no point in making a story out of it.
15. Only reading things with chapters of a certain length: This is actually really annoying, because I feel like people who do this are missing out on a lot of good fics. And no, I'm not just saying that because my own chapters are generally pretty short. I guess they think that just because chapters are short, the author didn't take time writing it and it won't be good, or something like that? Which certainly isn't true, of course. It just feels like setting limits like that is really pointless.
16. Getting offended with content in an M-rated fic: This is a new one I never thought I'd have any trouble with, but apparently I now do. When a fic is rated-M, it should be expected to have more mature content in it, whether it be swear words, violence, sex, and whatever else makes it that rating. I understand if something is rated T or lower, and still has that content, it's wrong, but M means you should be of age to read it. If they complain children will read it, well, the parents or guardians of those children should have taught them to avoid age inappropriate content, especially considering M ratings are filtered separately, and don't just show up with everything else on the page. Not to mention most kids swear more than I ever did or will. If they actually are of age and still get offended by the content of an M-rated fic, offended enough they need to complain to me (or whoever the writer is), then they need to grow up. I don't know how they live in this world, where swear words are all around us. And swear words have nothing to do with intelligence, or a lack thereof, either. They're just words. Chill the frig out.
17. No warning for Mpreg, or even Fpreg: This is an issue I have with other people's fics, rather than my own. I always appreciate an Mpreg warning in the summary or first AN, because it means I know it'll happen, and won't read the fic, since it isn't something I have any interest in. If the warning is a 'possible Mpreg', that's fine too, since I can start reading and then just stop if it does come up. But I hate reading a good fic, and getting really into it, only to have the guy get knocked up out of nowhere, with no warning, and then having to stop and getting upset for having wasted so much time reading. In the same vein, I feel that way about Fpreg too. I really wish people gave a warning that the girl will end up pregnant later or something, because not everyone likes to read that.
18. 'Yay, you're deviating from all the cliche ideas! ...Wait, why aren't you adding in all the cliche ideas!? I don't like this anymore!': This is also a newer thing that's really starting to bother me. Like I said, I like writing a bunch of cliche ideas, but at the same time, I try to change them to make them slightly less cliche. At first, everyone seems to be happy, and then after a while, seem to get annoyed that I'm not making the fic like every other kind of that trope out there. And I get it, those things are fun to read, even satisfying, but I want my work to be somewhat different. I don't want people skipping paragraphs at a time because it's basically exactly the same as a hundred other fics of that type that they've read. If making things even a little different, and sometimes slightly more realistic bothers you, then, again, just don't read my stuff. Simple.
19. Bashing characters I like: Now, I'm all for character bashing. It's so satisfying to have characters a person doesn't like get insulted, or yelled at, or punished, or whatever. But I feel like some people don't get that not everyone likes and dislikes the same characters they do. If I've written about a particular character in a positive light, it means I like them, so bash them in your own head or work, and not mine. It's really quite frustrating and only succeeds in making my muse disappear.
20. Offering some measure of creative control, and being hijacked: This one seriously sucks. There are times when I leave things like a future pairing up to readers, but with certain restrictions, such as having them pick from a handful of options or something. If they pick one option and tell me why, that's generally totally fine. But some of them will put in an entire plot, even how old they want the characters to be, and will often bash other options I've suggested, not wanting to see anything except exactly what they want. I'm beginning to wonder if I should just stop letting people choose things and just do it myself. But of course, those same people have an issue with that too.
21. Update: No. You think if I had the chapter done I wouldn't have updated? That I'm just letting the thing sit there collecting dust? If I haven't updated, then it means the next chapter isn't done yet. What do you want me to update with? The two hundred words I've written for the next chapter? Cause if you want that I can give it to you. Except then you'll complain it's too short, right? I am SO DAMN TIRED of your impatience. I can't pull 10,000 word chapters out of my ass every week for every story. If you can't handle that a person may have other things on their plate besides writing, and therefor maybe can't update quite as often as you like, then you need to pull your head out of your own ass and stop being so damn selfish.
I've recently been working on translating some of my oneshots into French. Unfortunately, French grammar has never, er, been my strong point, even when I was studying it, let alone now that I haven't taken a French class in a number of years. My main issue is all the conjugation, I think. So if anyone (who understands I only know Canadian French and will use certain words that may not be used in other branches of French) is willing to give me a hand, please let me know. I'm not asking anyone to translate the entire thing. I've done that myself. I'd just appreciate someone to go over it and make sure I haven't majorly fucked something up.
The main characters of my fics will always be childfree. No biological kids. No foster kids. No adoptive kids. Not even godkids if I can help it. They will have fur/scale/feather babies, but nothing more than that. If that bothers you, feel free to imagine the characters in whatever fic went ahead and had kids in the future, but don't tell me about it, because I don't give a shit. No kids means no kids. Pestering me about it only pisses me off, and that isn't going to change my mind.
I don't do requests. Please stop asking me.
