HELLO MY NAME (was) LE KING
I actually go by something else now, but that's beside the point.
It's been a while.
I realize my Death Note fics are something of a legacy. First of all, thanks! :D Second, that makes me feel morally obliged to give y'all an update.
So here it is as of April 2015:
Re: Devil's Trill (33/34)
I've tried to finish up DT several times, but over the years I've found that the ending I originally wanted to give it is exactly what I want and at the same time exactly the opposite of what I want. There is no need to treat is as anything ominous.
I want to end it and I will, eventually. It just feels... a bit monumental. You guys know what I'm talking about.
For what it's worth, it's done in the sense of plot and character advancement: Light did the thing because L spent 33 chapters doing things, and so as a result of all that pressure Light developed into the character who would do the thing he did in the chapter 33. That's it plot-wise. But as far as the actual love story goes, which is the cool and satisfactory ending everyone cares about, those two make me about as frustrated as they frustrate each other. So. Eventually.
Re: Alternative Gods (14/23)
I consider Alt to be like the pinnacle of my fandom achievements. I qq over it sometimes because I started this fic with without any formal writing training, like, we're talking highschool (like everyone else, really), and now that I have an actual writing degree I beat myself over this fic because getting that degree shredded me inside, and then on top of that Tumblr absolutely murdered my ability to think critically, and now what am I supposed to do? Every time I open a fanfic doc I feel like I'm setting up for a 5-paragraph essay, and then find myself getting angry about some trivial sjw issue. Ugh!!!
And then I opened Alt chapter 15 draft once, and a month later birthed a 50k-word Yugioh fic. Why? How did this happen? I never even thought of Yugioh that way since 2007!!!
None of that has anything to do with Alt. See what I mean!
I will finish it. I once came across a ff.net profile for a discontinued fic and it was all like, "no I wont finish it, no i wont tell u how it ends, no i wont let u finish it for me, stop asking kbye." It was a long time ago and I still remember how very strongly I didn't want to be that person. I guess I am, since, you know, updated in like 2011, but I'll get it done when I know what to do.
Alt was originally supposed to be like 30 chapters but I won't do that to you or myself. I know how it ends and where it's going, but I also realize there are a lot of people who get so into it they live and breathe this fic for like a week until they get help, so like if you're one of these people, PLEASE comment with your ideas, or like message me. It really does help, especially since, you know, this is all still posted on ff.net like livejournal and MSN are still a thing.
