Upcoming Projects or Projects in Progress (Now with the titles to each individual story and story progress):
Upcoming Video Game Crossover-
All Roads Lead to the Grand Festival (Minamoshipping)- Several of the stories and the tales that came about from my Valentine's Day effort 'Giving of Yourself' are coming together in this chaptered story. Now at over 150,000 words and with the companion story of how May and Kelly got together completed, this story appears to be going in the right direction. I'm looking at finishing it with no more than 55 chapters by the winter 2011.
Not Listening Has It's Advantages (FireredShipping)- Due to the great response to this one shot, I have decided to make it a chaptered story. Five chapters into this week, I've hit a nice rhythm, and have even decided to put in a three-part miniseries where Zoey and Ash get invited to a special hybrid contest/battle double team tournament in Arlington, Texas, USA at the new 100,000 seat Cowboys Stadium. One coordinator teams up with a trainer in the tournament. It is here that the two face off, and defeat, a new threat while attempting to gain notoriety overseas and strengthen their relationship at the same time.
A Confession Gone Awry (formerly 'Overcoming The Odds') (Pokemon- Appealshipping Romance)- Season Two Finale split in two chapters is now complete. Now back with Season Three. Season finale should come this February or March leading to the final season in June.
Finding That Which We Do Not Seek (SapphirePearlShipping)- This is a new planned work scheduled for release in mid to late September. Imagine a terribly depressed May, a Dawn more jovial than usual, a family destroyed by a mother's selfish actions, a daughter that doesn't want to understand, but eventually does, a thirteen-year-old serving as the comforter and mother figure for a fourteen-year-old, a three month tour of the United States for coordinators and a comic relief duo of Barry and Kenny. Do I have your attention, yet? Well imagine, also, that this will be my first 'for sure' work released on this site with lime to lemon content. Interested now? i thought so. PM me with more information on this. I'm working out the kinks of it as I write this and the notes are coming along real nicely, too.
Under Construction (PurpleVioletShipping or Kelly/Marina)- An 'All Roads' side story, and the first in the time line, where Kelly comes out to her folks, comes across Marina who had an argument with Jimmy, the two get together and Marina does something absolutely horrific to Kelly during a very vulnerable time in her life. This is a fall series with short chapters and frequent updates to accommodate my return to school with updates.
School Daze (BeautyandtheGeekShipping or Conway/Holly)- Another 'All Roads' side story, which takes place after 'Where Moonlit Roads Meet' where Conway and Holly get together during the fall 2008 semester at the Rustboro Academy. It's here that Kelly and May have their first date, as well. The initial two chapters have already been posted with the remainder being posted in the fall alongside 'Under Construction'.

LINKS FROM THE RAVE
- Forget politics as usual! Once you see this man and listen to his lecture on the United States and its Constitution, you'll be saying 'Michael Badnarik for President'!
Avegaille as well!- For fans of 'A Confession Gone Awry', a fan of the story, and a great artist on top of that, created this work in June of 2008. It's the sisters, Zoey and Rocky, in a piece entitled 'I Feel Loved'. Enjoy the other works of
- I make it no secret that I live in the state of Maryland. During the Olympics, me and my family were bombarded with a particular commercial from our state lottery. They've always made...unique commercials as far back as I can remember and this is no exception. The song is called 'Getting Better' by Bob Schneider.
- This is probably the closest that I'll ever get to putting a copy and paste bit on my profile page, but alas; this is not one. I say thank goodness, because all you need to do is click the link and read it. This is called 'The Bill of No Rights'. One will (correctly) argue that if you are gonna give someone a list of things they can do, it only makes sense to also include a list of things they cannot do. They include things you just don't have a right to. It might hurt some feelings, but tough shit. It is worth reading and understanding the message. It takes only three minutes to read, but it's worth it.
- John Boehner is a Republican United States Congressman from the state of Ohio representing its 8th district, which includes suburbs of Cincinnati and Dayton. He's also the current Speaker of the House of Representatives. In this 41-second clip, he sings the 'Boehner Birthday Song', which, as you'll learn, doesn't last too long. I thought it was sort of funny, especially when his fellow representative says that it would be best for them not to sing the next verse. Enjoy...if for no other reason but shits and giggles as Boehner gets all joyous and gay on the house floor.
- My posting of many different files to be shared with people. They contain mostly audio clips from me, but can also contain photos, previews of other stories and some exclusive works, as well!

02/13/2014- So, what's next?
The full-length chapter of 'A Confession Gone Awry' is the culmination of a lot of events. First of all, my old laptop was not cutting the mustard. A major screen flicker, to the point you couldn't look at it clearly, along with a broken hinge and other factors led to it not being of best use, so I got a new one in November and started to work on writing again. It's going to be a continuous thing.
Also, I am now in graduate school for business. That has a tendency of taking up time, but I do pace myself and time management is no longer the issue for me that it once was. At nearly a year's time in school, I'm enjoying it more than I thought. It's a challenge, but the journey prepares me for a valuable destination in the form of an M.B.A. Wish me the best.
So with those updates, you might ask what's coming down the pike for me? Well, I do want to get back to work on 'All Roads' and 'Not Listening' deserves some attention. Those stories, thankfully, do not have the word load in terms of chapter, that 'Confession' has, so updates on those may come quicker, depending on my assignment load. I can tell you all the probability of the next update leans 90 percent to the Minamoshipping fic 'All Roads' because the ideas for that are fresh and in my mind right now. As far as when one should expect an update? While I make no guarantees, I'm aiming for the end of February with a new chapter for 'Not Listening' to come around the middle of March. Hopefully chapter 30 of 'Confession' will come no later than mid-April, but probably earlier.
So that's my story. I'm back and if there's anything you want to know about, drop me a PM. I will respond to them at my earliest convenience.
Thanks to you, all! You are truly the best fans out there. I am humbled by your praise of me and my work!
