Author has written 19 stories for Dragon Ball Z, Chrono Trigger, Tenchi Muyo, and Vampire.

Yes, it has been a long while since I have last updated here. My apologies. Well, in the latest chapter of "Twilight of the Dawn", I said I would give my latest sob story here. And it's a doozy. I would just like to say first that I am not looking for sympathy, although if anyone is going through something similar I am willing to offer advice and/or condolences.

I've been unable to write for a few major life-changing reasons. First, my fiance was arrested for computer fraud last May, six weeks before our wedding, not long after I posted the previous chapter of TotD. I have not seen him in ten months. I have been handling a lot of paperwork as a result, and said wedding was cancelled. This has also (understandably, I hope) sapped a lot of my energy. Second, I am on anti-depressants for a nearly six-month long spree of nightly panic attacks (and also for the whole life-shattering crap). It is helping (and by helping, I mean that I'm only anxious now), but it has been killing my concentration. Third, I have just finished my Master's degree (the thesis was interrupted for three months by the whole fiance prison thing). That, at least, feels great. (grin) So as my personal life went to hell over the last year, so did my writing and other personal interests. I am just finally, finally starting to get my act back together, but it's going to be a long road. I will try not to abandon my writing again, but in the meantime, it will be difficult, and it will be unsteady.

Thanks for understanding.

When the hell did FFN remove asterisks as spacers? Damn it. I will now be going through every story I have and reformatting them. Damn, damn, and double-damn. While I'm at it, I may also change the wording of a few things in my stories. The fact that I was writing them at age 18 (and barely older) definitely shows.

Dreamwraith the Person: Former Niagara Falls resident and former Buffalo resident, current Syracuse resident, graduated in December 2010 with a Master's degree in Chemistry, consumes large amounts of chocolate, plays D&D, Vampire: the Masquerade (and several other WoD games), Exalted, and Magic: the Gathering. Owns a Whack-Bonk stick. Has been an avid DBZ fan since mid-1998, and an even more avid Namek fan since late 1998. GO GREEN! Also misses her Monster and her Ginny, but enjoys her Rynna and Ella. Is currently in need of a job.

Dreamwraith the Writer: Updates when procrastinating, has four works in progress and three other multi-parters on her dead hard drive that need to be rewritten, and has a moody, overactive muse who is occasionally supplanted by a Malkavian. Did not adopt name from the undead Dragonlance monster, although she certainly feels it after a long, hard day. Also accepts challenges and IMs when online, which is very rarely as of late. Wishes her muse a happy 6th birthday (April 2010).

Screen name: Crystalwrath
E-mail address: the above screen name at netscape.net (or at aim.com, whichever you'd prefer)

Works in Progress:

And I Shall Go On: "It was a passion kind of thing," Trunks had said about his parents, and he went on to say how it was not because of Yamcha. So where does that leave him? Most authors depict Yamcha as a 'player' who broke Bulma's heart. Give him some credit. Who is the man behind the scars? You might think a little differently about him after reading this. Chapter EIGHTEEN up: 6/3/10. (Finally! Given that Chapter 17 was up 11/22/05...)

Twilight of the Dawn: Sequel to "From The Past". Strange occurences have plagued Piccolo since the demon's defeat, leading him to wonder how badly he and the others have underestimated Daimao. When one horrific situation arises, he and the other Z warriors must confront the enemy they drove away but did not destroy... Chapter TWELVE up: 3/31/11. (Ugh. At least it wasn't a three-year wait this time.)

Shadows in the Night: The Prince of New Orleans has comissioned a coterie to retrieve a stolen artifact, one left under her protection by an elder Gangrel. What the coterie does not know is what power it possesses and why it was stolen. To what lengths will they have to go to recover it, and to what lengths will the Prince's men have to go to keep its secrets hidden? Chapter TWO up: 8/24/09.

Awakening: Death is a traumatizing experience that can cause a radical change in even the most peaceful of people. What happened to Cargo after the Nameks left for their new planet? In an attempt to prevent any future genocide, he swears to become strong enough to protect his people, no matter what it takes. However, when Dende is called to Earth to become its new guardian, Cargo will learn that physical strength alone is not enough to save the day. Chapter TWO up: 9/13/10.
