Author has written 33 stories for Naruto, RWBY, Doctor Who, Once Upon a Time, Mythology, and Fairy Tail.
So...it's been awhile. Yeah, it's been awhile. I'm gonna tell you guys a story...(if you can tell me who this quote is from I will love you for eternity...) Here's the deal you guys. I'm extremely sorry for not updating in forever, particularly with Crimson Tears and Summer & Winter. School has been a bitch. Junior year of high school is NOT treating me well. Plus I just have some more personal issues to deal with, so I pretty much am updating when I feel like it.
I simply don't have the time to focus on all my stories on a broad scale, so what I'm going to do is just work on one story at a time, starting with Shatter Hopes. Once that series is finished (which it should be in roughly...eight chapters? Not sure) I'll work on Crimson Tears, then Dragons and Demons, the Summer and Winter. And depending on how I am after all of this, I may write more. I've just been under a lot of stress and I can't really focus on writing at the moment. I appreciate all of you who have been very patient with me and I would love to promise this is worth the wait...but I'm not quite sure.
I don't want to be one of those authors that just leaves a good story hanging right at the climax. I don't want to be one of those authors that drops off of the face of the earth. But I can't promise that won't be the case. However if it is, I will at least let you all know either through a chapter update or a profile update. I am really sorry about all this confusion and waiting, but I'm trying to get back on the ball about this stuff.
I'm currently working on the following stories:
-Crimson Tears (on a semi-hiatus)
-Dragons and Demons (on a semi-hiatus)
-Roses and Snowflakes, Darkness and Light (RWBY)
Summer and Winter, Blue Skies, Bleeding Out, and Father and Son are currently on hiatus until I finish one of the above stories.
General synopsis/answering questions of my above fan fictions:
-Crimson Eyes: Naruto and the gang are nineteen years old, the Fourth Great Ninja War has not ended; it is at a stalemate. The only confirmed pairings in this fic is SasuNaru! I may throw in some hints to other ships, but the only confirmed one IS SasuNaru.
-Shattered Hopes: Sasuke, Sakura, and Naruto are seventeen years old. Sasuke and Sakura are currently missing nin who are on a mission to beat each other to Naruto, who is traveling the shinobi world for reasons unclear at the moment. Confirmed pairings are: SasuNaru.
-Bleeding Out: This fic is AU; Naruto is in a life-threatening situation and Sasuke finds him near death in the snow. This WAS supposed to be a one-shot, but I decided to make it four chapters long instead. You're welcome. Confirmed pairings: SasuNaru, slight GaaSaku just for fun.
-Summer and Winter: Sequel to the Sun and the Moon (both contain OC's and general stuff not in the Narutoverse, so slightly AU) Sasuke has come back from Hell and now has to save Naruto from a very daunting and dangerous foe. Naruto has befriended Kurama in this fic. Confirmed pairings: SasuNaru, LeeSaku.
-Blue Skies: Starts off taking place right after the Pain Invasion Arc, but becomes AU by having Naruto and Sasuke appear in modern day New York. Confirmed pairings: SasuNaru. Naruto is slightly OOC, the "slightly" part being he is a bit more angry than usual. Sasuke experiences mood swings ranging from complete and total douche bag to loveable and extremely overprotective mother hen/boyfriend.
-Father and Son: Pretty much follows the storyline of chapters 627 and up. I divert from the main manga slightly but other than that it is pretty accurate. No confirmed pairings, except some hints to SasuNaru. It is, however, more focused on the relationship between Naruto and Minato, Naruto and Sasuke, and Sasuke to Naruto and Sakura. It'll make more sense once I continue it.
-Crimson Tears: Sequel to Crimson Eyes. There are two versions of this story: the Mpreg edition, and the non-Mpreg edition. Each contains SasuNaru angst, fluff, etc., etc.
-Dragons and Demons: Crossover fic of Fairy Tail and Naruto. The timelines/arcs that I can most fit this fic into are: for Fairy Tail, after the "Fairy Island arc", and for Naruto, it's more of an AU setting, but technically it is after the Fourth Great Shinobi War arc.
-Roses and Snowflakes, Darkness and Light: My first RWBY fic! :) Takes place after Volume One ends. And as a warning, I make my own interpretations of characters, their pasts, etc., a prime example will be Yang in her first book. As a small spoiler for ya, this is the quote that's inspired me to write about Yang in a certain way. "The innocent never run, Yang." -Weiss Schnee, episode 16. Feel free to leave suggestions as to what you think the backstories should be :)
Got any ideas for my current fan fictions? Want to give me advice/criticism? Have questions that you want answered about my fics? Feel free to PM me! I don't bite, I promise.
*CRIMSON EYES UPDATE*
Firstly, I would like to send a HUGE thank you to Rachelle4eva for letting me know about this situation.
So here's the deal. I was told that someone who had been reading one of my first fanfictions, Crimson Eyes, suddenly found that Crimson Eyes has vanished. Poof, gone. It's practically disappeared from my list of work on my page. And this has seriously rattled me to the core. I've looked into trying to recover the story, however the recovery page of this site has stated that, in the past two weeks, none of my stories have been deleted.
This could mean a couple of things.
One, my story was deleted over two weeks and I did not notice. HOWEVER, I check my page everyday and, to my knowledge, Crimson Eyes has been there every time. Plus I would hope you, the readers, would notice if the story randomly disappeared and had alerted me. The second theory I have is that, somehow, the story file was corrupted and somehow deleted from the database.
Now so far I haven't been able to find the true reason as to why Crimson Eyes was deleted. So I've decided that until I can either find out what happened and possibly recover the original Crimson Eyes, I will simply rewrite the story to match what I can remember, as well as build up to the Crimson Tears arc.
I am extremely frustrated, and upset by this. To say the least :P I'm upset that some of my first work is potentially gone, forever, and that those of you who stuck with the story can no longer go back and reread the original work, as well as new readers who possibly will never understand what happened to the story.
It will definitely take me longer to rewrite Crimson Eyes, considering I have to rewrite it practically from memory, on top of I have other stories that take precedence over this current endeavor. So...that's my plan, pretty much.
If I do manage to find the original Crimson Eyes, I will most likely not post it, if I choose that I prefer "Crimson Eyes 2.0", or I could post it and post the revamped version, but I feel it's up for you guys to decide. Thank you soooooooooo much for sticking with me through this, and I hope that you all understand that I am almost in physical pain over this XD each of my stories are like my children, and now one of them is missing. My heart is breaking ;-;
That's all for me, for now. I'll make sure to update you all on the situation as it develops, and I should have a definite answer on what I will do in the next few days. Thank you so much for your continued support and reviews, I love all of you!
If I could, I would give every single one of you some hot chocolate. :) -Astridelta
