Song of the Moment: "Renegades" - X Ambassadors

Been here in for a while, posting several stories which have popped into my mind time to time. I tend to focus my writing on details outside of the main canon of the established stories, either focusing on crack pairings or an AU storyline which gives me greater freedom, all the while trying my best to keep everyone In-Character (IC) and the plot faithful to the story's original feel.

When I write a crack pairing, I focus on keeping them as IC as I can, if only to show that this pairing could actually work in canon if only the circumstance where different. So, if you have any particular pairing from any of the fandoms I've written in that you believe should get a shot, PM me about it. If I can, I'll make something with them.

Lately, however, I've been experimenting with stories, that while still outside of canon, stick a little closer to the established "status-quo" than my previous attempts. Only time will tell if this is positive or negative news, but it at least assures that I'll be here a little bit more often.

Finally, I won't abandon any of my stories, not matter how long it's been since I've updated. Thank you for your patience and understanding!

T.A.R.T. (The Author Responds To):
