8/2011: About that free time thing...yeah. I haven't managed to find the time to write much since work began, but I do still frequently come on here to read a few of my favorites that are still ongoing, or to try to scout out some new diamonds in the rough. I still have some things I want to write, though I sadly think my favorite project of the past, the Yondaime Project, may be butchered of all inspiration after what the actual series has done. It's hard to keep something like that going when there's so much information in canon that is contrary to what you've already written. If you read it, keep in mind that it was originally written before we knew anything of the names Minato and Kushina, nor of their rich heritages and histories.
I'd like to finish them someday but I'm just not sure what I'd do with them now. My original ideas are collapsing under the weight of what the series has done to where they just feel false now.
1/2010: I'm finally back! After a long 2009 with a full-time job of...finding a full-time job, 2010 is looking up. I'm now gainfully employed and looking forward to not feeling guilty about the way I spend my free time. If the muse strikes, I should be much more productive here than I have been in a while, which is good news since I reluctantly left many of my stories unfinished.
ffnet deleted all my unfinished work I had stored on the site, so I still have some work to do on rebuilding files. That said, lots of my work was backed up on my hard drive.

Here's a bit of info on the different stories I have done/am doing.
THE YONDAIME STORY ARC=
One of the other stories has already begun. Valor and Harmony is also from the Yondaime arc, though it can stand alone. I believe it will work out that you won't get a complete picture of the 4th without reading both, however. Unfortunately, the timeline between these two can get a bit messy. For your information, if you want a chronological look at what has happened in the Strength of a Nation(SoaN)/Valor and Harmony(V&H) story arc, read in this order:
SoaN Chapters 1 through Chapter 3,part 1 (AKA chapter 3 on ) cover a few days...
and V&H will probably close out before I do any more SoaN after that.
You'll probably find that I alternate stories a lot in this arc, as I'm going to attempt to actually write everything in chronological order. Since V&H is focused on the development of one relationship (the 4th Hokage and his eventual wife), while SoaN is focused on the 4th's reign in Konoha as a whole, they initially cover the same time period. There will come a point, however, when SoaN is on hold while V&H gets completed, since a lot of stuff will probably happen over the course of a few days...SoaN covers a few years so we won't focus much on any one part, other than the two spots when everything goes to hell...
THE WHAT IF STORY ARC=
After writing that, a completely off the wall idea popped into my head, and after a bit of fudging, turned into what I think might be the most interesting story I'll write on here. Lost Hope is a continuation of the story arc from What If...the main setting is Fire Country in a future far different from most fiction on here...this time the bad guy won. Many of the favorite characters, unfortunately, are dead, but Naruto lives on, attempting to fight a war that most feel he has no opportunity of winning. It is both sad and exciting, and a few of the twists envolved in the road may surprise even the folks who think they know what to expect.
This one is proving to be the hardest to write...because it involves creating a vividly different setting. The action may be happening in Fire Country, but the Fire Country here will be much different from the one we know from the series. And the characters would have changed in ways that make it hard to get inside them completely. From my point of view, that means there's much potential for growth as I work on this. I am working on it though, so be patient with me.
But, it's also a second priority to my Yondaime fics for the moment, so be extra patient.
In addition, there have also been characters I've grown to love, and I plan to do more with them soon. I have a one-shot on the hidden romance between Jiraiya and Tsunade called "Good Times Gone," and I intend to toy around with that relationship some more soon.
Valor and Harmony: Chapter 7 (Priority 1)
Rise of the Empire: Chapter 3 (Priority 2)
Evolution: Chapter 4(Priority 3)
On Hold/Cancelled/Not a Priority=
