Author has written 13 stories for Inuyasha.
I will not let a single flamer intimidate me into changing my work, or stopping my other anonymous reviewers.
7-29-13 Hello All!! Are you bored and want to read more about me and my (original) work? Check out my writer's blog: I update at least once every two weeks, but lately it's been more like once a week. I'm not dead here, BTW, I just need to find the time to make another fanfic plot and get writing! If you've got anything you'd like to see, send me a line! Oh, and I totally signed. You can see me here at Inkling's Literary.
4-18-13 Follow me on Twitter! My handle is @RARobie. I'm still a serious newbie to it.
(4-14-13) Sorry all for the long, long absence!! Although I'm done with schooling I've entered the workforce full time as an Administrative Assistant, and as a wife. Not a mother, thank goodness. Not yet. Anyway, so I've turned my efforts onto my original work. I've finished two novels since my last update here, so I've been a busy little girl! But all that aside...I've got BIGGER news now!
I'M GETTING AN AGENT. I have an agent getting ready to sign me with her agency so she can sell one of my novels!!! The novel in question is very dark, a Science-fiction set on Mars about sexual slavery, human trafficking, telepathy, and genetic experimentation. As soon as I've signed with the agency I'll place an update here to announce it and if/when the novel's published, I'll update then as well. Right now I'm revising the novel the agent wants, so that will take up most of my writing time for about the next month. I do think about fan fiction often, but my original works have just dominated my time. That could change, but as I make my foray into professional writing I can't promise anything just yet.
Personally, I think I can thank my fan fiction experiences for getting me this far. Writing here allowed me to hone my style and craft without the pressure of thinking about how I'd have to sell it to a publisher or agent later. It also allowed me to explore character development and it taught me how to finish work. When I first started (and much to the frustration of readers) I had trouble finishing work. I had the same trouble with novels. Now I can finish one in under a year easy. Thank you all for sticking with me and offering me such lovely reviews and support over the years!!
(12/17/2011) Long time since I updated this! I've graduated with a Masters degree in English in May, got married on 9-4-10. Busy, busy time. Lately I have been absent from the site in order to concentrate on publishing myself and polishing original works rather than fanfiction. My sister just graduated with a nursing degree this morning. Exciting! I had some success in the search for a publisher. One of my novels had at least one editor at Samhain (an ebook and paperback publisher) tell me that she thought I had a lot of talent and she liked my voice and wanted to see more of it. If my novel had been a true romance she and Samhain would have contracted me and published it, but alas, that novel was much more action/adventure. Currently I have her looking at my other novel, which might possibly fall into more of a proper romance. Maybe, though unfortunately neither novel is much about the romance. *sigh*. But rest assured, I haven't forgotten The Way of the Sword. Updates for it will come as soon as I have time and have scewed my head on straight. Thanks all :D
(12/16/09) The Way of the Sword is coming along well, five chaps now with four and a half already written in advance. Shiroihana (sessmom's) portion of the Inutaisho story is already at its peak. Of course she is still a key player later, but this is the bulk of her tale. I think that the next two parts will be divided a bit in the interest of chronological accuracy, plus I don't want to skip a few notes on Sesshomaru's childhood. After that I will give Izayoi and Inuyasha's birth my very own distinct twist. This story has been a lot of fun so far, filled with emotion and intrigue. Better still it ties in well with most of the facts we know and it works with my own timelines established in Runaway, Return, and Innocence. Woot!
(Nov. 22 09) At the risk of sounding dangerously like a fangirl...uh...I've been watching the new Inuyasha: The Final Act anime thing, the subs in English are on Hulu every Saturday, new episodes, and I just watched Kikyo die tonight, well done, I actually tried to cry. BUT...considering my latest story, more importantly: NEXT EP HAS SESSMOM! Full color! HA! She looks like Sesshomaru in drag, which is exactly as I hoped and imagined. HA! I'm so pleased I could puke with excitement. I should probably go eat something too because I'm hungry. Anyway...yeah SESSMOM NEXT WEEK!
( 11/19/09): Nearly Thanksgiving everyone!! I have been away at college, arranging an Internship and such. Phew. And struggling to plan my wedding! I think I will go insane!
I also heard a lovely rumor that Inuyasha the anime series has started up again in Japan! Woot! Will we finally see Naraku bite it in animation? I'll be off to Hulu to check this out and probably spend most of my time giggling and hoping that the later series stuff doesn't completely disprove something I've written, like, God forbid, Sesshomaru is actually a 1,000 years old, but I don't think he can be that old. (Not that anyone cares but me, you know. We can pretend.)
But I finally sat down and made a decision regarding The Way of the Sword. So I uploaded the chapter I settled on (new content and all, check it out!) I decided on mixing 1st and 3rd person. Beginning each chapter with a brief little blurp in the voice of the main character of each part. So for Part 1 the main narrator is Shiroihana/Sessmom. She will open each of her chapters briefly in first person, just for fun. Then the rest will be in third person. I decided on 3rd person because I think my 3rd person prose comes out easier and overall better quality. I have more practice at it. It made sense to choose it. Okay, more info on the new story.
The Way of the Sword is Inutaisho's story, but not told by him. Instead expect 3 narrators. Shiroihana/Sessmom first to reveal her past and Inutaisho's past, as well as Sess's early childhood and conceptoin. Izayoi will tell (arguably) the most exciting portion. Inutaisho's infidelity, Inuyasha's conception, and her scandalous pregnancy and how she managed not to be KILLED by Sessmom or Sess before Takemaru got to her in the 3rd Inuyasha movie. (YES I watched that movie and took notes and planned with it in mind!) Then expect Sesshomaru to take over. A younger, (more innocent?) Sesshomaru, tormented and torn between his parents. (Sesshomaru is the child of DIVORCE!! Not just any divorce, INUYOUKAI DIVORCE! Where they might KILL each other!) This part allows me to expose my theories on why Sess was such a douche to his dad at the beginning or movie 3. Sess is a yoyo. We will all feel sorry for him by the end (er, at least I do). The final few chapters will probably have each narrator covering the aftermath of Inutaisho's death, and how they contributed (or not) to Inuyasha and Izayoi's survival. B/c to me that's one of the biggest questions I have to answer: Why didn't Sess or Sessmom come out and kill Inuyasha as an infant?? How did Izayoi survive as long as she did? I get the chance to answer a LOT of questions and have a lot of fun with these characters and discovering Inutaisho through them.
Anyway, so check it out! Also, now that Innocence and Return have been finished satisfactorily, I have been considering some fun stuff involving Akisame/Tisoki pranks, Inuyasha struggling with infertility as he and Kagome try for baby number 3, and Masu/Saya and their ongoing struggle. AHHHH!! Exciting!!
Stories In Progress: I Miss You, Innocence, and Return.
Completed: The Mirror and So Much for the Hanyou's Happy Ending (hitherto I'm going to simply call that one "Hanyou," kay?) and Somebody's Waiting For Me. Also, With Our Arms Wide Open, and Runaway.
Others/On hiatus: Was It All A Dream?(it was too evil!) Mad Season (it's a oneshot for now that will likely be expanded later) and Women In Black (again, more later, I do about two at a time.)
Future Ideas: I'm going to list my thoughts for potential stories here and their titles and such, if you really like one email me or review one of my other stories to tell me so, or to make a suggestion, kay? FYI: I name all my stories, if I can, after songs...can you recognize them all? (grins)
You Are My Only One
The Origins of the Dog
Had A Bad Day Again
Gifts and Curses
Hungry Like The Wolf
(Don't know yet, but somehow related to SWFM which is already completed)
WHO I am: A college graduate! English writing major. Minor in Biology. Many of you have noted or will note that I use biology in my stories. That's common for me. Also you may note that in With our Arms Wide Open I use paleontology (the villain is a creodont, an extinct group of carnivorous mammals). And in Return I call on modern genetics to turn Sesshomaru into a human with a virus. Yeah! So yes, I try to shake things up, make them creative.
Interests: Right now I'm only doing Inuyasha fics. If anyone wants me to do other stuff write me...but I couldn't promise anything. These days I don't have too much time. I enjoy the character interactions of the Inuyasha anime, but I haven't been able to watch much of it, especially lately. And I'll confess I've never really read the manga. But I'm still here, still writing from what I know...feel free to correct me.
Enjoy the stories, I hope to be here to continue to please and delight. If my writing can bring pleasure, than I am rewarded. Always feel free to write to me or review with a comment, I listen and often respond.
