*I HAVE NOT ABANDONED ANYTHING, I SWEAR! I mentioned earlier that this year was going to be a nightmare, and it really, truly is. Patience is a necessary must, I'm afraid. I apologize for those of you who are enjoying my work and are stuck at cliffhangers. I assure you, I would much rather be working on fun things than doing real work. PLEASE BE PATIENT!*
THANK YOU to everyone who expressed concerns about my family! They are all presently doing well. I actually just carved out a weekend's worth of time to hang out with my parents and the grandpa who had open heart surgery back in May. He seems 10 years younger and is enjoying being home. We celebrated his 82nd birthday in October, and it has now been a year since we nearly lost him. My other grampa is feeling better and hasn't had to go back into the hospital, and turned 92 at Thanksgiving. I appreciate all of the well-wishes!
My LiveJournal page:
My most recent addiction is Once Upon a Time. A few friends were really into the show, and since it's on Netflix, I thought I'd give it a try. Let's just say I watched all of the available episodes (66) in two weekends' time. I'm a hardcore Rumbelle shipper, which should be no surprise given that Beauty and the Beast is one of my all-time favorite Disney movies, and Mr. Gold/Rumplestiltskin is my absolute favorite because he is just fantastic. I have a few story plots in mind for this show, but haven't yet had time to throw them together.
Sticking with the magical theme -- I've been most involved in writing Harry Potter. I absolutely adore Alan Rickman and Professor Snape (so much so that my current laptop is actually named Severus), and I have spent waaaay too much time reading Snape/Hermione stories. As a bushy-haired, know-it-all who has a fondness for intelligent, sarcastic, older men, that pairing just makes sense to me. I have had the chance to be involved with a "Ron Weasley," but could not bring myself to settle for that. That being said, I do sometimes consider pairing Hermione with either Draco or George.
Having grown up watching crime procedural dramas with my grampa, I tend to enjoy shows like Law & Order, NCIS, and The Closer. For the longest time, I was obsessed with L&O: SVU, and began my fanfiction-writing journey through those characters. A number of the stories I have written have an Olivia/Elliot vibe, but I must say I can only ship EO if it is well done. I am also a big Munch/Olivia shipper (intelligent, sarcastic, older men, I say!), which is far harder to find. In regards to SVU, I definitely consider the earlier seasons to be prime fodder for fanfiction, because -- let's face it -- the show just ain't what it used to be. No offense to the main actors, of course, because Mariska Hargitay is one of my biggest personal heroes.
I will always try to update any stories that are still open. It may take some time, though, as life tends to get busy, I tend to lose interest in some ideas, and I tend to forget some things (like key plot points...UGH!). I am currently undertaking a dual PhD program and will often be busy with classes, research, and teaching.
If it takes me an astronomical amount of time to update, I apologize. I tend to keep my status report up to date -- so you can check that if you're worried that I've abandoned a story. I also may post explanations on my LiveJournal page if it seems like it has been ages. However, if you feel I should be working faster -- let me know. Send me an email or a PM. I always enjoy getting messages that aren't spam.
Love you all!
