Author has written 7 stories for Fairy Tail.
So I realise it's been abysmally long since I last posted a story here. i don't really have an excuse to spout at this point because i don't look at the reasons behind this extended absence as such--an excuse, that is.
that being said, i am making this announcement specifically for those who wish to see more of my writing/wish for me to continue some of my stories in the future. I have yet to choose a concrete path of action, but from what i have decided so far, i might be rebooting some of my popular stories like 'Second Chances' and 'Wedding Bells Inc.' on a different website. i haven't exactly "retired" from fanfiction yet. i will be lying if i say so. i'm still in the swing of things, but on different websites that's all.
for those who are interested, all future stories from my side (no matter what fandom they belong to) will be posted on my AO3 account [username: TinkleTomes]. i am also active on my tumblr [url: tinkletomes] and post oneshots/take requests for certain pairings on my blog. So yeah, the reboot of popular stories will take place on both AO3 and tumblr.
as for the reasons behind this change...well. they are a bit personal in nature and have a lot to do with the changes that i have witnessed in myself over the past three years. as a writer, you can mature rapidly over a short period of time and this can be a rather disorienting effect for those who have way too much of a perfectionist streak in them. every time i try reading some of my old stories, i have the sudden urge to make changes, and this is one of the major reasons why i tried distancing myself from fanfiction for a while. but i am back, you could say, and i am determined to complete my unfinished stories.
hopefully, we can go on a longer journey this time.
see you all soon :)
Update (6th July): So I have decided to continue posting my stories here as well. The multichapter ones will be posted both here and on AO3. The oneshots/drabbles will be posted on my tumblr blog.
