Holy heck! :O I just realised that it's been not only like two years since I updated a story, but since I bloody well said anything to anyone at all on here! :O
I don't think there's anyway I can say sorry enough times to make up for this. I didn't realise up until now that I had actually kind of dropped off the face of the earth here! My life has gotten fairly busy over the last couple of years, and I've sort of fallen in and out of writing during that time. Now I'm wondering if there's any way I can word this to make it seem even remotely excusable, but obviously that isn't the case, considering somebody just pm'd me a little while ago asking quite seriously if I'd died. :(
I'm sorry to make those of you who were worry so much. :( Though I'm afraid I don't think I can promise regular story updates anymore (and I think at this point most of you have probably stopped hoping :( ) I'll try and leave some kind of notice from now to make sure you all know I'm still alive.
In regards to my stories...
Well, I've fought this long and hard with it and spent many nights agonizing over new chapters and this deciscion, but... I think at this point I'm going to have to say I'm officially discontinuing "Chained." The truth is I fell out of the Inuyasha fandom a long time ago, and though I tried to keep writing for it, things kept getting in the way. At this point I've forgotten most of what I've written, most of what happened in the show, and most of where I wanted the story to go. Plus I've reached a stage where I just don't really like any of my writing at all anymore. I know these probably seem like lame excuses to you who have been waiting so long for an update, and you're right, they are. I wish I could offer you something like I had both hands amputated and can't type a story properly anymore, or I caught amnesia and don't remember how to write (which sounds similar to what I said, only without the amnesia), but I can't. :(
If anybody is still interested in getting stories from me, then I may host a one-shot here from time to time or a short series (I don't trust myself with multi-chapter fics anymore, and I really don't want to let anymore people down with one), though it likely won't be for the Inuyasha fandom.
If anybody is interested in continuing chained (is anybody?) on their own, then I doubt I'd have a problem with that. Please just let me know and I can alert anybody still interested in the story about it.
I'm kinda upset now because this came out sounding a lot more like a formality than I meant it to. :/ Still, hopefully you all understand. :( I'm truly sorry for all of this. :(

Something I will never understand about FF.net...
How they can delete NC-17 rated stories for being inappropriate, and still display banners advertising for "Dirty girls" and "swimsuit contests." o.O
Hey everyone! Yep, it’s that time again-- time when I get so bored, can’t concentrate on writing (or anything for that matter), and start redoing my profile page: D
Okay, so, let's see, how can I make this different from the last one...
Well, I don't think I've done it this way yet, so let's try it this way (dont expect specifics for this first part, though):
Name: Let's just stick with Avarwen. It's easier to remember, and you have better chances of getting the spelling right than my actual name. : D
Age: Definitely older than I usually act: D
Location: Canadia. (And yes, I know how I spelled it, and yes, I did do that on purpose. : ) )
Sex: Female. I'm sure you all could tell that already, but just in case you couldn't...
Likes: Writing, drawing, music, photography, engrish, online quizzes/tests (tickle is the best site for these: D), Fullmetal Alchemist, LotR (books or movies-- either are great), Inuyasha (or I used to. It's standing on pretty shaky legs right now, though), anime, fanfiction, ANGST!, Edward Elric ; )... REVIEW(ER)S! : D
Dislikes: Uh, there's actually not too much I actively dislike (either that, or it's just so horrible that I've blocked it out and can't remember what it was). A lot of reality TV gets on my nerves, and I really have zero to no tolerance for rap and country "music," but other than that... Oh, and Rips, but I imagine those get on everybody's nerves.
Okay, so now that that's over with, let's see what else I can tell ya...
Well, I started reading/writing fanfic about five or six years ago now (Woah, has it really been that long? o.O). Began with the Lord of the Rings fandom and have slowly worked my way through a few others to my latest obsession (or mania, or whatever other lovely term you would like to use), Fullmetal Alchemist. I love FMA! It's my fav fandom so far, though you may not be able to tell that by the stories below. Yes, I do (or did) write a lot of Inuyasha while I was hooked on that for about a year. Lost patience with it, though, didn't like the end of the anime and don't have the energy to pursue the who-knows-how-many-chapters-long manga, so I've kinda fallen out of that fandom.
For all the "Chained" fans currently spazzing and panicking, don't worry, I don't intend to leave that story unfinished! I'm just having a real hard time right now working up any kind of enthusiasm (not to mention finding the time) to write new chaps for any of my stories in that fandom. It should be continued though! And if it, for some reason, is not, then I'll be sure to let you all know (unless, of course, the reason for it not being continued is that I've dropped dead or something. Then you might have to figure it out for yourself).
Anyway, I actually have quite a few FMA fics, just not posted on this site do to the ahem nature of some of them. I'm still confused as to what the maximum rating allowed on FF.net is, but I'm fairly certain it's lower than NC-17, so therefore you will likely never find me posting anything above an R rating on here.
As to what I write... Whatever the hell I feel like. : D
I'm an angst-whor... addict, I admit it. Most of my stories have angst in them. Every once in a while you'll find me branching off to write some WAFF (ACK!) stuff, but usually I write angst. I also write a good deal of yaoi. Don't worry, most of it's too adult to be posted on here, so you likely won't see much of it. Once in a while a fic does slip through, though. I've written a bit of het, too, but not too terribly much. As for yuri... don't write it, don't wanna, chances are never will. I'm afraid I'm just not at all interested in that. I like to surprise people, though, and I love adding twists and cliffhangers and all that stuff to make people's jaws drop, so who knows, maybe someday I will, but chances are... no.
Anyway, that's about it. My stories are below, most of them are pretty old and not at all up to snuff, but there's one or two down there that are newer and a bit more skilled (Or so I'm hoping). Reviews are always appreciated, critical or not, and I don't even mind flames that much (great for smores!)-- just no rips. As I said, I don't like those and really don't like to have my time wasted with them.
Feel free to email me, too, if you want, I'm pretty sure there's a link somewhere around here that let's you contact me... if not, then I'm sure I'll discover it eventually and post my email for you.
Til then... ; D
This is what I brought you, this you can keep

I promise to depart, just promise one thing:
