Author has written 3 stories for Final Fantasy I-VI, and Inuyasha.
I finally decided to change my pen name, and instead of coming up with something new and amazing, I changed it to the standby that I've always said I'm going to name my band one day if I ever start a band. I figure, why not, right? It's a name that means a lot to me, so I might as well make it my pen name!
If you're here because you had a story (or me!) on your favorite list and you're trying to figure out who the heck this is, I changed it from 'Aktrys' so hopefully that'll help you out.
Someone who left me a really inspiring review told me that I seem arrogant, and I'm so glad they did! I'm really sorry if I seem that way! If anyone else gets that impression, I really hope that it doesn't make you not want to read my stories, because I'd hate that. I have gone back and edited my author's notes to get rid of that offending tone, I hope it's enough, I don't want anyone to get upset! As I told that really nice person (and no, that's not sarcasm, he/she was actually really nice!), I think it's a defense mechanism because I'm not that confident about sharing my work, and I guess I must overcompensate. But now that I know I do it, I can...y'know...NOT do it!
And naughty me, I got a brain egg for an original story and I've been working on that. I know, smack my wrists! But hopefully, getting that out of my head will oil the gears and make "Chain of Fools" flow faster!
That reminds me. I should take this time to apologize to you all, because I'm learning (i.e., teaching myself) Japanese, and it tends to leak out...everywhere. So...gomen, ne? (Clearly, I'm not that sorry.) :D
(And if anyone's interested in checking out that original story I mentioned, it's called "Glass Wall," and you can find it Here. I have the first chapter up, at least.)
Oh god, an update! Six months later... I haven't worked on either story, and while I had some ideas, I'm totally and completely blocked. I had a dream last night, though, that was pretty epic and kinda made me start thinking about another plot, but that would have to be YET ANOTHER original piece, which isn't a bad thing. I can only hope I actually finish another chapter of...anything else...in the meantime. If I get around to grinding out a first chapter of this new thing. I'm so ADD with my writing. Six months: nothing. Now all of a sudden, it's like, "Ooh, shiney! ...Ooh, another shiney! ...What, there was a first shiney? I forgot."
