-To my readers - Hello, my esteemed peers. Many humble apologies, but I am retracting my stories for the time being, for mulitple reasons. First of all, I was temporarily in the hospital because of a drunken driver (DON'T DRINK) so I had no internet access. Secondly, beginning and ending stories are very difficult for me; I am going to work them over the hard spots, then repost. I am very sorry for any inconvienences, and I shall do my best to write quickly. Thank you for ya'll's patience.
Wow, it's been a while. Hey there. There are a crapload of facets in my personality, and it's reflected in my work(s). I love one-liners, quotes, Sherlock Holmes, Phantom of the Opera, Laurie R. King, J.D. Robb/Nora Roberts, The Thief and the Cobbler, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (all 3), and Texas Hold 'Em. I think you get the picture.
I write when I can, and try to update. But, as my long-suffering readers know, I am not always successful. I am in the process of writing two fics here, and another 2 on my spare time to post when they are complete. I love good pictures, and am always looking for a new fic to suit my mood.
I am manipulative, sly, a lurker, lazy, artistic, musically inclined, witty, inconspicuous, able to blend in, a natural eavesdropper, perpetually late, nearly blind, very private, appreciative of a good joke, able to laugh at myself and my friends with equal fervour, and totally, with all my heart, wish that I was British. Don't ask.
I shall wrap it up with that.
P.S. Yes, I know my pen name keeps changing. But as I get older, I find better ones more suited to my personality. The word Nkechi is Nigerian for 'loyal'. I am extremely loyal. To a fault. shrug
Updates on fics-
We're Not In Kansas Anymore, Toto - On hold. Writer's block is a witch with a capital B.
For Love of An Angel - In the process of the 3rd chapter. It's slow going, but I finally have Word back. I shall try to post soon.
