I wrote out a long and elaborate rant, but I thought against it. Instead, I decided to give you some messages and my plan for the future, regarding this account and the stories associated with it:

  • Feel free to bug me about syntaxes and grammatical errors if you could justify it. Those are embarrassing and I have no excuses. Fixing them is a pain, but that's not your problem to worry about.
  • As for writing style, if one were to read my blog and original fiction, they would experience a much wider range of descriptive vocabulary almost to a pompous level. If it hits pretentiousness, however, then it's a problem. I don't do that, intentionally, ever. That range is much less prevalent in my fanfic, because I want to retain some sanity. It would simply be too exhaustive otherwise.
  • Thus, criticising my writing style is fair game. I most likely won't listen, but I'm certainly not denying opportunities for self-improvement.
  • Do not, however, question me on what I'm doing with the plot. Express your opinions on how I took the story all you like, and I urge you to. Views are fine, and potentially helpful. However, do not at any time feel like I will listen to any of them. The only instances of exception would be for inconsistencies or gaping plot holes.
  • I will defend to death the integrity of what I think is right for the story. Read if you like them, leave if you don't. This isn't arrogance, but necessary professionalism; even though my claiming to be a professional would be little more than a bad joke.
  • I am busy. I work, and I do other things. I can't promise any kind of schedule and I was a fool to ever thought it was possible. Fortunately the readers have been understanding so far, and I hope this continues.
  • "Out of character" is a silly complaint. This is fanfiction.
  • It's rather obvious that my leads are usually strong female characters who happens to be lesbians, or bisexuals, if you want to be crass about it. I try my best, at that time, to make them also appear human and believable, instead of using popular butch archetypes nor would I ever simply stick a femme in to make things convenient. This has not always worked in the past, and I am working to get better.
  • Now, as for the stories:

    1. Chokehold: By far and large my most popular. I hit a wall with it a few chapters back, but I feel like I'm over it now. However, I'm still struggling as to what direction to take it. Time will tell. I have little to say, so I won't.
    2. Something to this day: My very first published fanfic, funnily enough. Apparently I am rather over my heads with the amount of characters I committed to the story, but I shall try my best to do them all justice. It's the only one so far that I did simply for the pairing, not to fix or add to the storyline. That would be rather hard, considering how vague the media surrounding the franchise have made it. This is still getting traction, which is good.
    3. Defense of the Ancients (I spelt it "Defense" in order to stay true to the source material): 5000 words chapters were not a particularly a good idea, and this one has extremely slow progress as well as a torturous barrier for entry, all puns intended. It is certainly not an easy pick-up, as statistics have shown thus far, and extremely difficult to even keep up with. This is actually a complete rewrite of my old fanfic with the same name and same premise, albeit with better, marginally, execution of the English language. This one might as well be on hiatus, as I'm rather confused thus far as where to take it.
    4. November Princess: I will give a clap for anyone who understands the naming convention, though it isn't particularly clever. It's new and it's ambitious. As to what I'll do with it, I don't know. It was supposed to be a large one-shot attempt and righting the travesty that is Starcraft 2's writing, but on the way I discovered a lot of Nova's back story and felt like she deserved so much more than the attention she was given within the game itself.
