Please don't ask/tell me to update, it really doesn't help me publish anything faster. Also, unless it's marked 'abandoned' it's not abandoned.
NEWS (10th of November, 2015):
I've started a companion blog for this account at againstthecurrentfanfiction DOT blogspot DOT co DOT uk if the link isn't working and will be posting progress, alternate chapters/scenes, fic news, research notes, and other stuff there.
Taking part in NaNoWriMo, progress updates on my blog (address above), instead of a new project, I'm doing chapter 4 of The Grey onwards and doing pretty well so far. (As I write about writing instead of actually writing.)
Current Update Status:
Memories of Rain - Chapter 9 of MoR has a few messy disjointed scenes at 2000ish words, really stuck for inspiration and I think I need to go back and rewatch some of the anime or something but I just don't want to.
Two Steps Back - Chapter 5 is up. Chapter 6 has far to go... but 7 is almost finished. *siiiigh*
Kaze no Uta - Chapter 4 finally moving with 600 words. Woo. No, wait. 650. Wow, I'm on a roll.
The Grey - 3rd chapter up, recieved a very small response. Are you guys boycotting this story until I work on my others?
The Drawing Board - First chapter of my Walking Dead story, Primal, is now up. Will clean it and all subsequent chapters (four and a half in total so far) and post them as their own story, eventually. They need a lot of work. *Digs in WIP folder to try and find something I a) want to show the world and b) is polished enough to distract people from all the other stories I need to work on*
I have no set fic schedule or order, it just depends what I'm inspired to work on.
A Little Bit About Me:
This is my second account on this site and was created solely for my SI and OC stories. They are a guilty pleasure of mine and have been excellent tools in improving my character creation. No, I will not tell you my original username.
I would like to get some feedback without being linked to my previous stories, not because I am ashamed of either category but because I tend to write stories for this account when I am blocked with my canon character centric plots. I don't want to be harried on either account because other stories are more popular. Fanfiction is escapism, therapy and fun, thank you very much.
Flames about my stories on the grounds of 'but this is a OC/SI character!' will be deleted. If, on the other hand, you want to offer constructive criticism then I am all ears.

I do not react well to the term 'Mary-Sue'. I believe it is now used to describe almost any female character, both canon and non. Considering that there are many, many Marty and Gary Stus running around in fanfic and popular culture, who never receive the same degree of scrutiny or grief as their female counter-parts, I see it as a sexist device to limit female influence. This is all the more worrying that some of the greatest women haters claim to be women themselves. If this topic is broached, I will often argue along the lines of: 'If character A was a boy...'
Just a heads up: I will argue this issue, particuarly over my own OCs whom I have taken a lot of time to make as human as possible while still functioning in worlds where the impossible is reality. Provided you state your case in a reasonable manner I will respond in kind. Flamers and trolls can go back to 4chan.
To my Readers:
If I've made a spelling/grammar mistake, please point it out! Ditto for social/cultural/religious/general facts! I do my research but nobody's perfect. If you have personal experience in something or know an area of study particuarly well that I've got wrong then please point it out.
Flamers can take a hike (see above), con-crit and honest compliments make my day, one word reviews like 'update' are depressing.
I WILL NEVER HOLD A CHAPTER HOSTAGE OR DEMAND MORE REVIEWS. I will only hold chapters back to edit, have buffer space so I can publish reguarly, etc.
Stories in the Works:
Breathe (Young Justice)
Primal (The Walking Dead, prologue posted as chapter 5 of The Drawing Board)
The Grey (The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim, first part posted in The Drawing Board, now edited and posted as its own story)
Do Not Disturb (Final Fantasy VII, a small snippet posted in The Drawing Board)
Titanium (Marvel Cinematic Universe, with various cameos)
A story tentatively named 'The Lost Uchiha', which I started writing ages ago but was utterly lost to file corruption (Naruto fandom, multiple OC story with generation spanning narrative). I have so many plans for this but losing the original really hit my inspiration hard.
The best way to catch these stories is to either alert me or subscribe to my archive, Entrapment and Escapism, as they will all be uploaded there.
