dragon of winter nights ('down' for short - /I/ can't be bothered to type all that lot, I can hardly expect anyone else to! XD) is /really really tardy with updates/. Sorry, people!

I love manga, and anime, as many books as I can get my hands on, and pretty much every genre going. History, especially medieval and earlier, and languages are other things I love to play with, as is music (again, practically any genre. XD I love TVXQ, Queen, Fleetwood Mac, L'arc en Ciel, Vienna Teng, Bach... I'm learning to play the flute at the moment.)

'Protecting You' is my current (monster TT_TT) project, and the supposed posting schedule died a horrific death when my wrist did. And life keeps getting in the way. Be sure that I'm still working on it, though, and thank you so much to everyone who's reading it! At the moment, the projected length is c. 100,000 words - 20 chapters - of which over half is written, probably two thirds. I'm getting there. Slowly but surely.

ETA: so, 200,000 words and 24/25 chapters, now. Um. I have this problem a lot. ;;; ETA013421043259: hopefully under 250,000 words overall. About 26 chapters?

I'm working on a couple more things not quite as epic, but having learnt my lesson about posting things in stages before the end is written then wanting to redo the beginning, they won't be appearing until they're somewhat closer to finished. (There's a modern day au, another set in a Japanese university with added extra magic (which is now beginning to appear here! So you can see how well that resolution lasted. ;), and a rather bizarre thing about a festival in Cephiro all currently in progress.)

I'm beginning to blog a bit again, come and say hello/poke me? I respond a lot quicker on there than on here. I also have a (slightly different range of) fic up on AO3.

Archive of our own: I'm 'down' and 'dragon of winter nights' over here

Dreamwidth: over here

Livejournal: mirroring the above, but comments work anywhere

Deviantart:I have some art (mostly rayearth fanart for now) up here

Tumblr: I'm actually quite active here! (It takes less time mainly just inane reblogging XD)

oOo

Statuses:

Protecting You: Chapter twenty three is now about half dragged together... (STILL.)

Untie: on hold until Protecting You is at least fully drafted!

oOo

Transformative Works Policy:

I'm perfectly happy for anyone to create any form of transformative work based on mine (after all, I'm doing the same with all my fanwork!); credit would be good, a heads-up so I can go find it would be lovely. (Just please don't post my original work places without permission - with the exception of art to places like tumblr, then just please give credit and a link back!)

(I doubt anyone really wants to know, but figured better to have a superfluous permission than an ominous silence. Heck knows I hate having to approach people I don't know about things much less personal than creative work!)
