Author has written 17 stories for Slayers, Pokémon, and Higurashi/Umineko series.


I'm gone, or maybe on hiatus, but don't count on it. I still love fanfic, the idea of it, writing it, and also reading it. Fanfic itself is not what I'm burned out on, nor any of the series I write fanfic of.

The issue is something that I'm not supposed to say, but I'm going to anyway. Yep, I'm leaving for lack of feedback. I've done everything 'right' -- not ask for it, post regularly despite presence or lack of it, be sure to take time to revise and edit my work instead of posting 'hot off the press', etc. Still haven't heard much from readers. Not that I've gotten no feedback -- it's plain to see I have just by looking at numbers, but what the simple numbers don't show is the long periods of absolute silence. When I'm posting a longer story and chapter after chapter go by with me hearing NOTHING back, the silence stings, even if there had been feedback before. Lack of feedback once the last chapter goes by, when I've done the last 'right' thing a fanfic author is supposed to do, ACTUALLY FINISH, especially hurts. (Note: Yes, everything posted here is complete. No abandoned/discontinued stories at all!)

Yeah, I know that no one who reads is obligated to comment, I have that 'right' knowledge in mind. It's just -- that's the reason I post(ed). I want to hear back from readers telling me what they think. Yes, I do write for the love of writing and getting the story down, that much is 'right' of me, but I revise and post for the feedback. Oops, I guess I'm not being 'right' when I say I want feedback at all.

I do appreciate what I get so much -- don't think I don't! It's just I've gotten less and less over time since I opened this account and started posting my stories again to the point where it's hardly anything. Thanks to anyone who bothers/bothered.

In conclusion, again, yeah, no one has to comment. But authors don't have to post either. I can't speak for everyone, but even one person giving me consistent feedback is enough to motivate me. And I haven't been getting it, so I'm burned out on posting. I'll continue to write, but keep it to myself not go through the longer process needed to meet my standards to post. Farewell.

See you again?

Maybe if I write something and want to share it enough that I don't care if anyone responds. Possible, but not going to happen anytime soon. Or, maybe if the message gets sent to me that people really want me to keep posting. Better yet, if fandom culture changes back to being a community where people readily interact. I'm not holding my breath for any of that!

In the meantime, I encourage everyone to give feedback to ALL authors of fanfic that they like. Encouragement and interaction is important.

Selection reviews
Cassidy finds out her son wants to be a pokemon trainer. It turns out it's not as simple as going to get his first pokemon when he turns ten. Giving the best isn't always good enough, especially when not even meeting all the requirements is.

Roles reviews
Pikachu is finally captured and expected to fill the role of Team Rocket member, the same way a ditto can instantly transform. James also finds himself pushed into an unfitting role as he lets others define what type of intimacy he'd prefer. It's not so easy to change the nature of pokemon or people.
