December 7, 2021: You may have noticed that while I helped plan/set up Azure Week (including the brand new Discord chat!), I didn't post any fic. I did create and post the theme images, which was really all I was capable of... because I'm expecting my first baby next month! So I'll probably be on hiatus for a short while, at least until I get my bearings. Thank you for your patience and kindness.
Azure Week ultimately got extended to an entire MONTH (ending on Seto Kaiba's birthday, October 25), so be sure to check out the Master List on the Blue Eyes and Apricots fanlisting for all the amazing submissions.
Previous Update - July 31, 2021: I'm gearing up for Azure Week 2021 (September 16-22), and I'd love your input! Head on over to the Azure Week Forum here on FFnet, or look for my postings on various Azureshipping communities around the web (my DeviantART, Dreamwidth Community, subReddit, and so on). Right now I'm leaning toward the overarching theme of "Celestial" and looking for theme ideas, quote prompts, song lyrics... anything "celestial" inspired that you think will go well with the Azureshipping (Seto Kaiba x Anzu Mazaki/Téa Gardner) pairing, be it romantic or friendship!
Older Update Notes
So I was digging through my old LiveJournal archives looking for completely different information when I stumbled across some short oneshot fics I wrote for a challenge back in 2007. They are related to fics I did write and publish back then, but are not technically part of those stories. We now have Just Because, a sequel of sorts to Strains; Give Me a Reason following the events of Eat Your Words, Beautiful; and This Wish, a prequel to Family.
If I find any others, you can be sure I'll post them here. Enjoy!
Added the final 3 chapters (Chapters 13-15). of The Seven Labors of Mokuba Kaiba, my NaNoWriMo and YGOME 2020 submission (originally posted on AO3). It is the first fic in what I'm calling my "Schmoozeverse," with the next multi-chapter fic being Love and the Art of Schmoozing, release date TBD. There may also be some oneshot fics in the same universe. It is the 100th fic I've posted to FFnet!
Added chapter 3 of Tremors, one of my (hopefully many) submissions for Azure Week 2020, a celebration of the Seto Kaiba x Anzu Mazaki/Téa Gardner 'ship, for theme #8: "excuse me" – the same theme I used for Azure Week 2018 for the first chapter of Mayonaka no Rendezvous. I'd like to write more of that, like I said I would, but I'm finding the first person POV pretty challenging!
Added the newest part of Thrice Gone recently, and earlier today, the first chapter of Tremors, which is part of my 30kisses submissions, for theme #27, "overflow." I came up with the idea for Tremors years ago and just decided to write it the other day, and here we are, 11,000 words later, and here I am wondering "Why did I pick the theme overflow for this one? Or what does 'overflow' have to do with the plot?" I can't remember. You tell me!
What's next? I'm leaning toward Chapter 2 of Mayonaka no Rendezvous, and then I'll see where my muse takes me.
How's everyone holding up during these crazy times? Like a lot of other folks out there, I'm among the "vulnerable" population susceptible to complications from the coronavirus, so I've been more or less holed up for the past month or so. I know fanfiction can be a great escape, both for readers and writers, and I've been coming back to FFnet periodically to read nice, long fics with a good amount of romance, angst, hurt/comfort... all my favorite genres, rolled into one!
It's the day after my [REDACTED] birthday, and a LOT has changed over the years since I last updated this profile. Let's see: I've now got a Master's, am married, own two businesses, and have two adorable fur babies (cats. They're cats). "Adulting" can be really frustrating at times, so I sincerely apologize for the large gap of time between updates for my stories. Rest assured, I'm not dead, they're not dead, and I really do want to finish my fics.
I just posted Mayonaka no Rendezvous (Midnight Rendezvous), yet another Azureshipping fic. I wrote it back in 2018 for Azure Week (which happens on the midpoint between Anzu [8/18] and Seto's [10/25] birthdays, in about the second week of September or so). I totally thought I posted it here, but... oops! That could certainly explain why some people thought I didn't post anything for Azure Week... ;_; It's a first for me in that I decided to try my hand at writing from Anzu's perspective: that is, first-person POV. The way it stands, it's technically a vague hurt/comfort fic tinged with light romance, and while it could stand on its own, I keep thinking about it, and I'd want to continue it if there's interest. (That's not to say I won't be working on my various other WIPs, just that it's good to have things to alternate to when I feel stuck.) This is also the first fic that I attempted to design a cover for! Let me know what you think.
I also posted the first chapter of a weird crossover I started about four years ago: The Speed of You, an Initial D x Yu-Gi-Oh! crossover. For some reason I like doing crossovers with Anzu, and then slowly introducing other Yu-Gi-Oh! characters to other universes. If you've been to an arcade in the last 20 years, you've probably seen an Initial D racing game. It's based off the anime and manga of the same name, and while I'm not a huge fan of the art style, I do like the drama that comes from car racing. There's no fantasy in Initial D, and very little romance, while there's ton of fantasy and technically no romance in Yu-Gi-Oh!. So what do I do? COMBINE THE TWO! It'll pair Anzu off with an Initial D character before she makes her way back to the OTP: Anzu and Kaiba, of course!
Sorry that I can't use any clickable links in here, but apparently FFnet's overlords have decided to strip most URLs from their system to "avoid spam." sigh
