Author has written 13 stories for Penguins of Madagascar, Harry Potter, Pokémon, and Digimon.
UPDATE 4/9/16 (edited August 6th)
Don’t you just hate it when a teacher says ‘buy this book, we need it for the test’ and then never actually mentions a word of it? I mean seriously, why tell us that we need to understand the thought process of the author and that it will be on the test if it’s not on the test at all?
Anyway, it’s been about…almost four months? Wow, time sure does fly by… I planned on getting back to my stories, but real life likes to get in the way. Long winded explanation will be after this message:
We here at TK incorporated have completed Camaraderie at a nice even number of 70. I tried making it to 100 chapters, but it didn't work out. Perhaps I’ll have enough content for 100 chapters of WATP. But Camaraderie is wonderfully completely finished...but TK, you ask, is it really gone for good? Well, who knows, maybe I’ll come back with a shorter story about their lives after Camaraderie, or little snippets of what the kids are up to.
Alright, grab some popcorn and take a seat, explanation begins now:
I feel like this technically began in February when my uncle passed away. It was an awkward time for me because I wasn’t super close to this uncle and my dad doesn’t really talk about his feelings. I turned to YouTube as a means of finding entertainment and comfort and I did. I continued working on this story into the summer and fall. I had a chapter out in September, but that’s when things got a little tricky.
My roommate situation this semester was strange, I guess you could say. The sum of it is, I had two other roommates who talked to each other and not really to me. This resulted in miscommunication and me feeling lonely. I literally said out loud to one of them that I’m lonely and she said ‘no you’re not’. Clearly she can’t tell shyness from loneliness. She was the one who seemed nice but I felt that she was a bit rude and apathetic. She pressed the snooze button on my alarm one morning and I was nearly late for class. I had to shove food down my throat like Scooby-Doo. She said she didn’t know what to do…gee, maybe WAKE ME UP?! Ahem, sorry…The other roommate was one I had last year and I really didn’t want. Neither of them understands why I love Harry Potter, The Penguins, or Pokemon and I felt a bit teased by them about it a bit put down.
I planned on having a chapter out Thanksgiving weekend, but lo and behold, family drama, Then school kicked in overdrive and I was worried about a grade for a while, so I had to focus. Also, I had a friend who needed my help for a while. Finals were a pain in the neck. I spent two overnighters. One was actually all night. Trying to write two essays for finals…my sleep schedule was messed up for days…
I tried to get back into this right after finals (about mid-December) but I had to switch dorm apartments for some silly reason. So I’m getting new roommates…HELP ME!!! Ahem, where was I? Oh, right. Then came jury duty…the thing I’ve been dreading all year…and they had us wait for an hour before telling us to go home because there was no case…so I woke up at 6:30 for nothing…thanks…Then, remember said drama stated above? Yeah, that came barreling back and I was just not prepared to deal with it all. Luckily I had my favorite YouTube channels to watch so I wouldn’t feel so alone. So after New Year, I came back determined to finish one of my stories and I have chosen this one.
Sorry for the long winded explanation. I did tell you it was long, but I just wanted to provide a satisfactory reason for you all because you deserve it and I feel bad for leaving you hanging like that. I know I should have updated this sooner so people wouldn't worry. I won't leave a story unfinished, don't worry. I know what it's like to start reading a story and find out it hasn't been updated or the author hasn't been heard from since 2008 or earlier. However many chapters, however they finish, they will be completed eventually.
I am really bad at this...Now that Camaraderie's over, I've been thinking of how I want to go about writing the other stories. It has been a busy summer and honestly, I have no idea when I'll get around to writing. I think I should bulk write so I can upload faster. I also don't think I should have started writing six stories at the same time when I had enough on my plate...oh well. Here's the rundown:
Luna's Digital Adventure (LDA) I know how I want this story to go, but I wanted to use Netflix. Problem is that I have no idea when I'll have time to sit and watch one episode at a time and incorporate their dialogue along with Luna. I'm thinking of making it AU all together, which means that it won't strictly follow Digimon or Harry Potter's storylines and they may be altered somewhat, especially if I'm thinking about an Adventures 02 story.
The Ketchum Curse- This story might be shorter than I anticipated because I was hoping to stretch it out enough to the point where it has plenty of action and description, but I feel like I want to get to the point already. Also, I'm sort of losing interest in this story. No worries though, I will try to give it a fair ending if I want to be done. I will also let you know if I decide to put more focus into this story or not.
We Are The Penguins (WATP)- I sort of know where I'm going with this, but to me the ending isn't as clear as the other two are. I never really thought out how I want this to go, but I'm fine with where it is now. I have a bunch of things I want to put into this story, just gotta stay positive.
I have two stories in my head, one being the sequel to LDA and the other one is a Harry Potter story. However, before I begin either of those, I want to finish the Ketchum Curse and LDA (Duh, TK, can't have the sequel go out before the first story finishes! Unless it's a prequel...wait, what?).
Wow...I haven't updated in a clean while...welp, take your seats and get the popcorn ready I suppose...
Camaraderie finished in late June, I uploaded it right before a family trip. I was sick that entire week and wanted to just crawl in a hole...ahem, then when I returned to my sister's house I had every intention on continuing the other stories. A bit of background- I spend summers, spring break, Christmas break, at my sister's house; she and her husband work full time and have a nanny for their four kids. I basically am the co-babysitter for four very young, wild, and noisy children and rarely have time to sit down and write. I worked on WATP in bits and pieces up until mid July when their nanny had fallen and broken her ankle and couldn't work as often as she normally could. I then became the sole sitter for my four nieces and nephews for a couple of weeks while she recovered and my sister and brother in law changed their schedules up a bit to try to be there for at least dinner time. This means that 90% of that time was me feeding the breakfast, lunch, and trying to keep them out of trouble...yeah, there was a day where I only had one package of baby wipes available and three of them were stuck on the toilet.
K, maybe you didn't need to know that...ANYWAY! When their nanny did return, she wasn't able to move around as fast as she usually would (she's in her twenties and faster than I am normally). So I did most of the running around, playing outside with the kids, etc. This constituted my summer of making sure the kids' needs were met and doing chores that could not be done at the time by the nanny. There was absolutely no time to work on stories.
Enter school year- I am in my final year, and second to last semester, of being a college undergraduate. Basically- enter onslaught of stuff I have to do to complete final two semesters. Also enter- regretting staying in dorms for another year
I like to say I'm pretty PG, I dislike swearing irl and in writing (if a character in story such as Ron Weasley says 'bloody hell' I will put that because it's part of the character), but HOLY HECKLES I cannot stand being here anymore these people make me want to use 95% of the foul language that one of my favorite youtubers uses.
I have three roommates who are all sophmores. They are...to put it politely...loud, messy, rude, and just stinky snaggletooths who don't give two cents about me. Not to say I'm seeking attention, but they downright ignored me for the first month and a half and didn't really chat much until a little sit-down of sorts in mid-October.
The 'talk' mainly consisted of them feeling that they were being watched and that they felt uncomfortable and unsafe and that they wanted to basically have this sort of intervention before things got dangerous and that one girl felt like leaving...
... Ask ANYONE who has ever met me and they will tell you that I am the least threatening person on the face of this planet...I don't even like squashing spiders! (sorry if I triggered anyone with arachnophobia). I also don't find their lives interesting enough to me to watch them constantly. Prior to the sit-down they began distancing themselves even further than the beginning and started having hushed conversations and basically excluding me.
I am a person who doesn't know how to be social and tries my best to participate, but I suppose that was taken as a big fat NO and I didn't realize. I am also a sensitive person and this hurt me deeply. It really did.
Enter depression- basically I let everything get to me and I scared my mother with a text (which I feel bad about) because the language it sounded quite like self harming. In a way, I did harm myself. Not physically, but mentally. I let everything get to me and it tore me up. Some classmates noticed my demeanor, but I told them I was just tired. My mother had to help me put a stop to this because it was beginning to have a toll on my performance in school.
I do have the support of my family, but there isn't much they can do now. I did draft a letter to them to explain about myself and a rare syndrome I have that causes some of these physical and behavioral traits that can come off as intimidating or strange.
I don't think they read it at all. They haven't discussed anything with me or brought it up.
I spent the remainder of October and the beginning of November trying to get myself out of being depressed and the rest of the year so far doing school work. (I think 'Uncomfortable' is my trigger word now...). Also I have to live with them next semester until graduation...wish me luck...I'm going to need it.
At this moment I am supposed to be writing papers, one of which is due Tuesday, but I needed to update you because I have received messages and realized that not everyone gets updates sent to them. I am going to try to work on my stories but I cannot promise you that everything will come at a regular pace.
I can promise that each one of my stories will eventually have some sort of ending. I really do know how it feels to read a story and then realize at the last chapter that it's not completed and the last update was 2003 or something like that and that there was no warning from the author in story or in their profile. It feels as bad as not giving the Penguins of Madagascar a satisfactory ending (I know the readers of WATP will definitely know what I'm talking about). Or what if JK Rowling decided to end the Harry Potter series at book 5...now I don't know about you, but I'd be devastated and hungry for answers and conclusions.

Now, I know I definitely bit off more than I could chew when I set out with six stories at the same time. I couldn't handle all the different plots and characters at the same time and I just had to whittle it down, which is why two of them had odd endings (in my opinion). I then had four stories left and I definitely felt closer to the conclusion of Camaraderie than any of the others. This is where I feel really bad. I didn't give the readers of Ketchum Curse, Luna's Digital Adventure, or We Are The Penguins enough of an explanation to satisfy them. Also I left the stories at rather awkward parts and I'm sorry, really really REALLY sorry!
Hopefully these chapters are a good place to pause the adventures until I can get back to them. So here's the rundown on each story and their status:
The Ketchum Curse- IN PROGRESS- In short, and without spoiling Sun and Moon, I wish I waited until Sun and Moon came out to write this story. Or at the very least I wish I didn't disregard gens 5 and 6. To be fair, I didn't know about Gen 7 at the time. I stated in the last update that I was losing interest in this story and honestly I am. I feel that I could have watched the gen 6 anime, which I've heard had a crazy final league battle (not spoiling). Not to mention, I could have build a relationship between Max and Bonnie. Maybe even a Misty jealousy with Serena around. I'm not going to change the story now, so no Alolan Pokemon (dang, really wanted Exeggutor and Muk), sorry! The last time I left this story I said I wanted to finish it by the end of 2015, but due to circumstances beyond my control I could not. Then I settled on finishing a different story. But this time I want to focus my attention on this story. I cannot promise you it will be done soon, but I will be working on it. Again, I want to get to the point of the story and I did let you know that I'd tell you if more focus is being put into this than the other stories and it is at the moment. I want to give it a satisfactory ending. I might be speeding the story up a bit and skipping time to get closer to the climax, which I feel bad about, but I think it has to be done for the sake of sanity (yours and mine).
We Are The Penguins- ON HIATUS- This story has covered a year in the life of the Penguins so far. This story's goal is to cover at least four more years as stated in the first chapter. I also have so many ideas that are bouncing around in my head for this and it literally hurts not to be writing and spilling everything for you. Rest assured that this story is far from over, but I do have to push the pause button and save it for when I can make it my sole concentration. I do this because I know the first two stories I rushed (when I had six) didn't have a satisfactory ending to me. I would absolutely hate to do this to WATP because I really do have a good chunk of the story played out in my head.
Luna's Digital Adventure- ON HIATUS- I have been struggling with this for a while and I just have to put this on hold until I can finish Ketchum Curse and until I can figure out how to write this. Originally I watched this on youtube, channel was taken down, oh well- I moved to Netflix. Netflix had two options- Japanese or English versions. I wanted to give the Japanese version a try because it was the original version and what the characters had been saying then, but they say funny things in the English version as well. So basically I tried taking the Japanese version and incorporating Luna...which is hard because she's not there in the original...also the names of some of the Digimon were changed and I feel that it could be confusing for other people. Netflix no longer has the Japanese version and I'll have to use the English version which might cause a slight personality shift. On top of that, I don't know where to find time to sit down, watch a 23 minute episode, pausing and backtracking, trying to figure out how to put Luna in there. I might rely partially or fully on Wiki summaries, but I definitely will be making this AU (Alternate Universe). Since it's a crossover, it already seems a bit AU, but I need to modify a bunch of little things to reach big things. Not to worry, most major events from Digimon and Harry Potter will pan out as in their respective series such as the Myotismon arc, Kari joining, etc. For now, not much of the Harry Potter world is shown. If I ever get to Adventure 02, then definitely will have more HP events since the Digidestined were in and out of both worlds. CHAPTER WITH EXPLANATION COMING SOON, THEN THIS STORY IS PAUSED
I will try to keep you updated as much as possible and again, I will not abandon a story to the endless realms of what could have been. If there ever is a story I want to end, I will time skip, make chapters longer, do whatever I have to to give it some sort of ending. I honestly, truly know how it feels to not know, how it feels to be stopped at the good part never to be completed. That's not me though. Any story I write will have an inevitable end. Please don't worry, I got you. I am extending my hands towards you, hop in, I'm not going to leave you wondering how the story could have ended. I got you.
I got you.
