So...I'm going to state the most obvious thing in the world: school is time-consuming. While updates may take longer, please don't lose hope! I promise I have not given up on fanfiction, and am already working on the next chapter(s) for Tales of the Titans and The Reigate Ritual! Thank you for your patience!
One of my favorite quotes:
"Vengeance does nothing but perpetuate more vengeance and on and on until some race can find the strength to say "No, I will not avenge. I shall stand with dignity until my enemies are won over because they honor and respect me," and only when that happens will we have our pride back." --from the movie Ragtime.
A pretty awesome statement from an author:
(COMPLETE SPOILERS for the ending of Animorphs)
Dear Animorphs Readers:
Quite a number of people seem to be annoyed by the final chapter in the Animorphs story. There are a lot of complaints that I let Rachel die. That I let Visser Three/One live. That Cassie and Jake broke up. That Tobias seems to have been reduced to unexpressed grief. That there was no grand, final fight-to-end-all-fights. That there was no happy celebration. And everyone is mad about the cliffhanger ending.
So I thought I'd respond.
Animorphs was always a war story. Wars don't end happily. Not ever. Often relationships that were central during war, dissolve during peace. Some people who were brave and fearless in war are unable to handle peace, feel disconnected and confused. Other times people in war make the move to peace very easily. Always people die in wars. And always people are left shattered by the loss of loved ones.
That's what happens, so that's what I wrote. Jake and Cassie were in love during the war, and end up going their seperate ways afterward. Jake, who was so brave and capable during the war is adrift during the peace. Marco and Ax, on the other hand, move easily past the war and even manage to use their experience to good effect. Rachel dies, and Tobias will never get over it. That doesn't by any means cover everything that happens in a war, but it's a start.
Here's what doesn't happen in war: there are no wondrous, climactic battles that leave the good guys standing tall and the bad guys lying in the dirt. Life isn't a World Wrestling Federation Smackdown. Even the people who win a war, who survive and come out the other side with the conviction that they have done something brave and necessary, don't do a lot of celebrating. There's very little chanting of 'we're number one' among people who've personally experienced war.
I'm just a writer, and my main goal was always to entertain. But I've never let Animorphs turn into just another painless video game version of war, and I wasn't going to do it at the end. I've spent 60 books telling a strange, fanciful war story, sometimes very seriously, sometimes more tongue-in-cheek. I've written a lot of action and a lot of humor and a lot of sheer nonsense. But I have also, again and again, challenged readers to think about what they were reading. To think about the right and wrong, not just the who-beat-who. And to tell you the truth I'm a little shocked that so many readers seemed to believe I'd wrap it all up with a lot of high-fiving and backslapping. Wars very often end, sad to say, just as ours did: with a nearly seamless transition to another war.
So, you don't like the way our little fictional war came out? You don't like Rachel dead and Tobias shattered and Jake guilt-ridden? You don't like that one war simply led to another? Fine. Pretty soon you'll all be of voting age, and of draft age. So when someone proposes a war, remember that even the most necessary wars, even the rare wars where the lines of good and evil are clear and clean, end with a lot of people dead, a lot of people crippled, and a lot of orphans, widows and grieving parents.
If you're mad at me because that's what you have to take away from Animorphs, too bad. I couldn't have written it any other way and remained true to the respect I have always felt for Animorphs readers.
I figured the best way to know about my writing is to get my readers' point of view. If you have read any of my stories (though preferably the newer ones, as they are of better quality), and have the time/patience to fill this survey out in either a PM or review, it will mean a great deal to me! Thank you!
Requests: If you fill out this survey, I will write a brief ficlet request for you as a way of saying thanks. It will be about the fandom your survey was based on. I'll tell you when it's posted and on what story you can find it under.
Also, please fill out the survey honestly! While I would love a 5-star review, but it doesn’t help me if I didn’t earn it.
The scale goes from 1 to 10, ten being the best and one the worst.

Note: Any story marked with *(complete for now) means that it is a story I originally planned as a two-or-more part mini-story, but I have left as finished for the time being, for one reason or another (usually because I'm trying to focus on one specific story, or I just haven't played/watched the game/show in a long time and lost interest). This does not mean it is set in stone that I will never continue the story, but it CAN stand alone as a one-shot until I do. Sorry this is an inconvenience, but I hope what is already there will suffice for now! Thank you for understanding!
So...I find it a huge inconvenience that FF.net doesn't have a way to bookmark the stories you want to read later, so this is my personal list. Feel free to browse, though be aware, my list will probably change frequently.
