I'm very chatty, so feel free to PM me with any questions, beta inquiries, comments, constructive criticisms, suggestions for stories to read in my fandoms, and/or relevant requests. Or, you know, general good conversation.
Name: Anjum. That's pronounced AWN-joom.
11.18.20 Hehe. Hey, guys. Remember the last year, year and a half when I was really good about only working on one project at a time? Remember how often I posted in that time? Wasn't that nice? Yeah, well, you could kinda say I'm doing that now. In that I'm really one-track minded on one thing right now, though it wouldn't be fair to call it one story. I've mostly been writing a buttload of oneshots, a couple stories that are a bit longer. Seriously, you won't believe me, but I've written 110K in the past two months. Seriously. Over two dozen oneshots, plus drabbles and a handful of twoshots/multi-chaps. The most prolific writing of my life. So what's the problem? Where have I been?
Well, it's been for a different fandom, and totally different from the kind of content I produce over here. Every word of that 110K has been x Reader content, which I'd never even read before this year. I mean, I never even read OC fics and I jumped to self insert? I know. I'm shocked by this turn of events. But, the truth is, I'm having a lot of fun, and I can't bear to stop just because I feel like I have responsibilities over here.
I haven't touched Ghost Story since the end of August. It's sitting pretty on my computer at 158K and 29 chapters compared to the 80K and 15 chapters it's at on here. So rest assured that I haven't abandoned it. It's just on hiatus. Still. I was hoping to begin publishing chapters by now, but I'm still not comfortable with continuing publishing until the story is basically done which, although it's doubled in size, it's still nowhere near to.
I can't tell you when I'll be ready to dive back into Pokemon again. The truth is that this pandemic has been rough. It's put me out of work and, combined with some personal issues I was dealing with beforehand, I'm really clinging to fandom like it's the last ledge on the cliff of my identity and self-worth. And right now, the fandom in my hand is not Pokemon or any of the others I've posted on here. This fandom is all I look forward to every day and without it I'm worried about what would happen to my mental health. I know it's not good to rely on one thing so much, but, god, it's a freaking pandemic. We're all just doing the best we can to survive, to cope. I know no one's actually creeping over here to read this and see where I've been and if I'm updating. But I feel such a devotion to this account that's been with me for the last decade that this is really just me writing a letter to it to tell it what's going on. This account and its body of work means so much to me, but my new account is coming to be just as important. But I know I'll come back. I love it here too much not to. But you probably wont' be seeing me for a little while longer. Hopefully it's not too long. If you want, feel free to talk to me on here or over on tumblr @letswritefanfiction
Pokémon: Ash/Misty, Drew/May, Tracey/Daisy, Red/Blue, Alain/Mairin, Grant/Viola, Gary/anyone, Dawn/anyone.
Gossip Girl: Chuck/Blair, anyone/anyone.
High School Musical: Troy/Gabriella, anyone/anyone.
Gilmore Girls: Luke/Lorelai, Rory/Jess, Lane/Dave
I guess I'll take a moment to talk about my stories.
Drabble Hour: Pokéshipping future-fic with children. The chapters are cute enough, but I don't like the plot anymore.
White Christmas: Pokéshipping. Pretty cliché., but I reread it recently and it's not bad.
Weather the Storm: Pokéshipping child OC MC. Other ships. Multi-chap. I don't think that it holds up anymore.
AAML Alphabet Challenge: In this collection, you'll find a whole amalgam of PokéShipping stories. Some chapters are better than others, some more shippy, some less shippy, some very short and some quite long. Throughout this challenge I kept a side-challenge for myself of trying to include a variety of different styles, perspectives, voices, genres, tenses, etc, so you never know what you'll find! But there's something for everyone!
Lost in Halloweenia!: Multi-chap Halloween-inspired tale, told in the style of the Pokémon anime. No ships, but plenty of shenanigans! I kinda love this one.
Ghost Story: WIP, current project. AU multi-chap. Pokéshipping. This is an adventure-based Misty-centric story. I have put a lot of work into this story and while it isn't perfect, it is miles beyond WtS. Still on hiatus on-site, but not abandoned! It's not going to be my best ever, but it's going to be something, goddammit.
Let Me Walk: Oneshot about Delia pre-canon. It's only okay, but I wanted to write it, so here it is.
Pink Macarons: Serena and her gal-pals celebrate Valentine's day together. Nothing super special, just women supporting women.
Zenith: My--very late--contribution to PokéShipping week 2018. A redo of the Kalos finale Team Flare incident but with more drama, stakes, and relationships, platonic and romantic. Also, Misty is there! Characters are aged up, Ash will remember that he had a life before Kalos, and lotsa stuff goes down, some the same as canon, some different. I know it's not a unique idea, but I'm proud of how it turned out!
Mistakes Were Made: current side-project. A collection of stories basically meant to call out the nonsense that occurs in the Pokémon fandom and canon. Hopefully it'll be comedic and informative about my thoughts about where the fandom has gone wrong. No particular ship and, as every chapter is a standalone, I'll likely mark it as complete after a few chapters are posted. Just posting these while I work in depth on GS behind the scenes. Inspired by Canon Rape by Bittersweet Romanticide.
Birthdays: Chair. I do like this one. I wrote most of this over a year before I published it and then I rediscovered it and finished it.
Great Minds: Chair. Just Blair being funny and immature.
First Christmas: Chair and Derena. Darena? Whatever. It's okay.
Charles: Young NJBC oneshot. There were just too many things in GG that played out perfectly in this scenario, so I had to!
Out of My Dreams: St. Berry. Weird one. Don't recommend it. Just put it up because why not?
Don't Stop Loving Me: St. Berry. Kinda. Loose song-fic for Red Ragtop by Tim McGraw. It has its painful clichés and some rough moments and, admittedly, the concept is OOC, but I kind of like the writing.
Staccato: Unoriginal, but I still think it's good.
Agitato: Not good. There's no story; just dialogue, really. But hey, it's a wanting fandom, so I figured I'd publish it for the heck of it.
君の名は/Kimi no Na Wa/Your Name
Self-Medication: If you wanna read a days' long A/N, this is the story for it. It's an exploration into depression, mental illness, misdiagnosis, and medication, or what I think Mitsuha might have been up to the year before she met Taki. And a bit after. I think this is some of my best work.
Only One Way to Find Out: No romance, which was new for me. Just some ghost!Heather Chandler fun with Veronica and...Martha?
Winter Wonderland: Heathers. Series of festive (unrelated) oneshots for the holiday season. From the #DECFANFIC prompt challenge on tumblr.
Hate: Veronica character study. Not my favorite genre, but I just had to!
What If?: Forever WIP. Yes, some are self-indulgent and ultimately character studies more than honest to goodness solid works of fiction, but who cares? This story is marked complete because the chapters are standalone, but that's not to say I won't continue to add to it!
Once on this Island
Not Yet: Just a playful piece about how the gods decide exactly who wins the bet between Erzulie and Papa Ge. This piece screamed out of my mind in 24 hours, so who knows how good it is!
Braided Chord (君の名は/Kimi no Na Wa/Your Name oneshot). A prologue of sorts, following three timelines. One is around the time of the previous comet 1,200 years ago, one is from Mayugoro's time, and one following the movie characters. This story explains the origin of the ritual the Miyamizu shrine maidens do and the body-switching abilities.
Untitled (Pokémon multi-chap). A story (that I've put on pause as I focus on Ghost Story) about gameverse Red/Blue throughout the regions (so there'll be 7 chapters, one for each region (I started this before Galar existed) using their canon appearances in Kanto, Johto, and Alola, and filling in the rest. It'll be super gay, ya'll, and I'm hyped! I've never written for them before and it's exciting to hop into a different corner of this fandom. So far: 18K, 1 chapter. *facepalm* I know, it's too long.
I have a community that is filled with the best Pokéshipping stories that I have ever read that are complete. This means good writing, plot, pacing, character-development--the works. I don't know about you, but it irks me to no end when I start reading a story only to find that it's not finished, so I've put together this collection of stories that you can count on. The only one that is not completed on this site is Pokemon Master by Acey, but the last chapter is elsewhere on the internet. So, technically it is still finished, just not here. PM me if you can't find it and I'll do what I can to help.
