Author has written 10 stories for X-Men, X-Men: Evolution, Repo! The Genetic Opera, Dragon Age, Supernatural, and Teen Wolf.
Hey guys... it's been awhile. Like, oh two years or more?
I haven't stopped writing. If anything, I've gotten better at it. HOWEVER, I hate FF.net's interface. Always have. Hate it. I've been posting everything over at AO3 in the time between, or on tumblr, or not at all because I'm actually writing original works now.
But I'm sort of back (hate the interface, love the community!), so just in the process of stumbling through the site and uploading some of the stuff from AO3.
Although I am hesitant to do so, I am officially placing "Toulouse and Royal" on a permanent hiatus.
It breaks my heart to do so, it really does. I LOVE this story, and I love that you love it.
HOWEVER, it is just too much a part of my childhood and my past. I don't think there's a way I will ever be able to put myself back into that mindset to write it like I used to. At this point, I feel like picking it back up again would do nothing but destroy the integrity of the story. I would either have to a) leave it forever or b) rewrite it entirely. I haven't decided which option I hate less (I really do just love this story to pieces), so I am just putting it on an indefinite/possible always hold.
TEEN WOLF HAPPENED.
IT WAS JUST SUPPOSED TO BE A STUPID SHOW ABOUT WEREWOLVES.
Also, this may come as no surprise to anyone who has ever spoken to me, but that newfangled Marvel Cinematic Universe... well, that's pretty all right. Mmmm-hmmmm.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
I'm Orion, or at least that's the name that I've used on this site for so long that everyone who knows me knows me as this. It's a relic from my days in the Inuyasha fandom (and we don't speak of those days). I'm closer to 30 than 20 at this point, but still in denial over that - mostly because the real world is a scary, scary place and it's hard and I don't wanna. I'm make my money in marketing, my joy in writing, but the only job I care about at all is raising the absolutely best little person on the planet - hands down, bar none, THE BEST. She is excellent.
I joined this site about 10 years ago when I was still in high school and had never shown anyone else my writing - and here we are, a decade of experience (and two degrees) later, and still writing fanfiction. It's glorious. I love that I am able to look back on where I started, appreciate it... and then kill it with fire. Good lord, what a difference a decade makes.
I struggle with severe depression. It's been the reason for my many and lengthy absences from this site. Though I have been receiving treatment for a few years now, you have to understand that depression, like the writing process, is a fickle mistress - it's not an easy fix. It's long, and it's hard, and sometimes it's like it's no treatment at all, one step forward and eight steps back. I'm alive. That's what matters. If I'm writing, I'm probably good. If I'm enjoying that writing, it's even better.
I'm not a single-fandom girl, closer to 30 than 20 years of obsessions, after all, but Marvel is and was and will always be my first love. I grew up reading the comics. My brother and I used to pretend to be the X-Men when we were little. My dad has been calling me Stark since I was three. My mother, my sweet and conservative British mother, will THROW DOWN with you in Fantastic Four trivia. My child will only respond to Thor. Trust me when I say that Marvel is the universe I choose to live in.
Believe it or not, I'm a happy person. If I'm not responding to messages here, I'm probably just out in the world, living and loving it. But, I mean, ten years of community is hard to turn your back on - if you need to reach me, or even if you want to say 'hello,' my real people email is firstname.lastname@example.org - you can also find my AO3 and tumblr through that address :)
