Hello! I am Rae Logan. I can be found at many other sites with any variation of my "name". You might also know me as the author of the "Teaching Darkness" fan series featuring Mephiles the Dark. Or rather, at this point, a selection of derivative characters so far removed from the established canon character that they might as well be seperate characters in seperate continuity.
Let's just say that what started as a one off story meant to by just my attempt to actually make something different than the usual stuff offered in 2008 has more or less morphed into a semi-interactive fanon that encourages the readers to join in with thier interpretations.
Given the time that's passed between certain stories, I have to say that the older ones barely hold up to the same standards, with "Teaching Darkness: Memories" being the installment where things really began taking it's distinctive style, though it wasn't until "Teaching Darkness: Flux" where the style that this series uses was refined.
Because "Teaching Darkness: Flux" took 3 years to complete (blame my tendency to get side tracked, as well as various computer issues and hardware problems, and even several chapters being rewritten from scratch after being lost in crashes), it's not only the current one with the longest development time, it also has some writing shifts due to the time it took to finish this installment. It also has the current distinction of being the longest installment, so there's that. It's also the first crossover to a canon game, "Sonic Unleashed", which also meant replaying the game to recall the time flow and locations, which also deciding what would interfere with the canon game.
The current installment, "Teaching Darkness: Rift" has and is facing similar issues, though it could simply be because I'm also fact checking in the time periods as well as having to handle a time travel story, which actually is harder to write for than you would think.
That said, I really don't count anything before TD5 as much for the "canon" as well as it's written by a teenage me, so it's badly done by rule of thumb. A lot changes in 8 plus years. Chapters that once spread to a measly 1,500 word count now can push 9,700 on average, though this also accounts for the longer wait times in between chapters, especially when I get interested in doing something else between them.
There's far too much to yak about now, so why don't you just go on ahead and just give my stories a little lookie-loo? I try to make each story as best to my abilities as I can, so that you, the reader, can have a fun time. I try to steer clear of "cookie-cutter" fics, but I do occasionally make a story that's inspired by a previously published media.
My favorite "program" of sorts that I use for typing out my stories is the Notes app that comes with the iOS software, as that provides an easy to access platform to type on the go. The only downside is that I usually have to do the HTML formatting myself, but that's all the fun of putting as much effort into the chapters as I can.
So anyway, have fun, and see ya around. :D
