What is a Closet Romantic Sock Puppet?
Does this exclude stories of any other genre?
Absolutely not. It should be noted that sock puppets utterly enjoy movies such as Silence of the lambs and might get stung with a different (and a little darker) muse now and again.
At the moment, there is a vicious little thing biting at her ankles, demanding she write fanfictions revolving around the Rurouni Kenshin universe. Yet one can expect other kinds of fanfics as well.
About the stories:
All good things:
It started out as a simple idle curiosity but is already showing signs of growing bigger than I had anticipated. Nevertheless it is a lot of fun and it will test my writing weakness otherwise known "ability to hold onto the plot". All the demons that appear in the story are based on Japanese folklore. There is a lovely long list of them on wiki so I suggest you check it out, if only for kicks. I certainly enjoyed myself doing my "research" for this story.
Hitting a bit of a writer's block while working on the next chapter of The gift, I decided to write something else to get the flow going again. I ended up wondering about Enishi, and how Kenshin had been so utterly destroyed. It seemed improbable that Kenshin bounced back completely after such an event, so soon and so I decided to find out what might happen afterwards. I'm still not completely satisfied with it, particularly the ending, but I figured I might as well upload it to show that I am still writing.
A closet full of drabbles:
Drabble collection. Started by a request and a need to get over a bit of a writer's block.
Child of a frog is a frog:
It started out as a request for a drabble. Before too long however I figured that the way that I wanted to write it would take more than a few hundred words. I wanted to explore how lessons taught to Kaoru as a child would affect her in later life. It was a lot of fun looking up the old japanese sayings to do so.
- Next drabble for a closet full of drabbles. To store the random thoughts that sometimes pop up in my head but might have potential to become a story. That, and the one shots that are under six pages long (lettertype ariel 9).
- Next chapter of The gift.
For those interested in following the progress of my fanfics:
I have made a tumblr account using the same name. What I'll post there will mostly be writing related, however there might be the occasional silly stuff I feel like updating as well. Check it out if you want to at: closetromenticsockpuppet (dot) tumblr (dot) com.
