Author has written 14 stories for Sonic the Hedgehog, Swindle series, Gordon Korman, and A Goofy Movie.
My old, deleted stories are back up and we have the notorious TheTruthCritic to thank! Let's give them a hand, please! Even through their scowl and nasty opinions and words, they do shed some light with their advice. While deleting my stories was a decision that had NOTHING to do with TheTruthCritic, I realized that the fans still loved my stories--even if I hated them (that's the reason).
So, to the fans, here are the old stories that I shall never look at again! I'm not even gonna redo the epilogue to Nighttime Is Their Time or redo anything in Just An Alliance. Mostly because my computer crashed and got rid of all those files I had saved, which were of those stories since they were my latest stories. Oops. ;)
While I'm here, I might as well answer some questions that readers will and have asked:
Why do you use Damien as a name for a child between Shadow and Amy so much?
While I've only ever read one other story that's used this name for a child between Shadow and Amy, I use this because of a boy I once knew that was a fighter through all of the issues and problems he faced. I personally don't know where he is now, but I hope him the best. So, with that said, if you ask anyway or say it's a stupid name, I'll probably just laugh at your opinion. That is the nice thing about opinions, isn't it? Like seriously, though, this question. You'd think a lot of people would hate the generic use of the name 'Maria' for a child between Shadow and Amy. But nope. Fucking Damien.
Why do you rush things?
Because it becomes fucking boring. My brain is literally just jumping from one story to the next and doesn't ever want to fully complete a story. Just wants to let it hang there. So actually finishing a story is a challenge for my brain to do--no joke. So things will probably be rushed, at least in my older stories. In my newer stories, done under the name Cozy Shadow, I have an...Epilogue-Beta-Reader-Editor-Thing-Person on here that is so graciously kind as to look at them and suggest advice and whatnot! Yay!
Why'd you delete your stories?
Under the alias BlackPetals23, I deleted many stories. Then they came back. I deleted them because of how rushed they were and how obsessed I was becoming with reviews and the perfect ending. I've realized that both are difficult to get. And I also came to think about the reason I even started FanFiction. It wasn't because of the reviews, fans, endings, or beginnings. It was because I love to write. And I'm not about to let the one thing that I have left go. So, I'm taking a hiatus, finishing the new version of That City Girl, and coming back with chapters to Those Country Boys. It'll probably be a long while, but I hope it's worth the wait.
Got any more questions you'd like answered? PM me or review on a story! I'll answer back as quickly as I can!

You can tell which stories are done under BlackPetals23 because they will just have my profile picture. Exceptions are: What A Camping Trip, What A Perfect Vacation, That City Girl, and Those Country Boys. I personally like the first two, I'm rewriting TCG as Cozy Shadow so it gets a new cover page, and I'm going to be finishing TCB as Cozy Shadow (plus some rewriting maybe) so it gets a new cover page as well. Basically, any profile picture that says 'Cozy Shadow' is my more improved writing and something I actually like compared to the old pieces of work that I've left for old fans to keep enjoying. :) Thank you.
I would look at That City Girl every two weeks if you are constant followers and/or fans of TCG. The new version will be updated in strings of three chapters at a time. I hope to get them out next week sometime but I'm running a little low on free time. :/ Anyway, the first four chapters are completely new so check them out!
