"It is absurd to have a hard and fast rule about what one should read and what one shouldn't. More than half of modern culture depends on what one shouldn't read." - Oscar Wilde, The Importance of Being Earnest

"The written word is all that stands between memory and oblivion. Without books as our anchors, we are cast adrift, neither teaching, nor learning. They are windows on the past, mirrors on the present, and prisms reflecting all possible futures. Books are lighthouses erected in the dark sea of time." - Jeffrey Robbins, Gargoyles

Two years between profile updates? I suck, I do. I'm still alive, just still not writing that much fanfic. Or any.

A couple quick words.

There are some unfinished stories on this profile. Okay, there are four unfinished stories on this profile. When I first started writing fanfic I said to myself, "I'm not going to be one of those [expletive] who put up a story and then never finish it."

Life has a funny way of making you reevaluate your priorities.

So since I'm a bad person, let's go through them in chronological order and I'll tell you how they'd end if I finished them, and why I'm not going to finish them!

Fanfiction Wars was born of my desire to write lazy parody fic. I'm not going to bother outlining the entire six-part story I had planned, because I already did that in the outline document that I still have because I keep everything I write until I find it again years later, go "ugh," and delete it! So if you want the outline of Fanfiction Wars, send me a PM with your email and I will send you an ancient word document. It's all spelled out in there. (tl;dr: the heroes win. I don't do sad endings, generally. The Red Cloak and At the End of All Things notwithstanding.)

A Clash of Heroes I began writing at a request from the very talented VulcanElf (whose stuff you should go check out) so that I would have a story in the 2009 Genesis Awards, which is a site that has been dead for a while now so don't bother asking what it is. I wrote a bunch of it, got bored, and checked out. It was fun and there's some good fights in there, but we all know how this ends. It's in the first chapter that Auron and Sephiroth get to the Plains of Chaos. So they go meet up with Demon Keith David, and can't quite beat him, but he can't quite beat them, and so they end up making Cosmos and Chaos agree that the cycle has to end sometime despite Shinryu's use of the conflict as a power source or whatever the hell was going on those games, and they leave a loophole for the combatants of future cycles to exploit in order to end it. Also to replace their rapidly-dwindling numbers, the Chaos forces were going to recruit future Sephiroth to fight present Sephiroth because that would be awesome and this crap makes no sense anyway. So, sorry I never wrote that.

The Gospel According to Tony originated from me seeing the Avengers and being like hey, I want to write Tony Stark and Bruce Banner broing it up. But I wrote the first chapter, got my fix, and realized that the subsequent chapters would be them sneaking around a place they can't get out of whilst outnumbered and outgunned by a superior foe. Which is exactly what Just the Two of Us and Sorry's Not Enough are about, as well as Plausible Deniability kinda sorta, so I didn't want to get into a rut. Spoiler: Iron Man and Hulk don't die.

Where No One Has Gone Before is the grown-up version of the Star Trek/Star Wars crossover fics I wrote as a child before I knew what fanfic was, or what the difference between sci-fi and space opera is. The reasons I'm not going to finish this one are a little more complex. I started writing this fic toward the end of 2012 as a way to distract myself from a big break-up that I handled very poorly and do not like to remember. But I began moving on emotionally before I finished the fic, and my need for distraction waned and my desire to write seriously again rose. Also, despite the fact that I usually live for getting to write the climax of a story, I realized that I'd already written the stuff I really wanted to see. Picard and Luke having a chat about the Force, Data using a lightsaber, Guinan giving Han advice and hitting on him a little, Chewie with a universal translator, the Enterprise fighing a Super Star Destroyer, etc. And (as you can see above) as I don't usually do sad endings, I knew, and the audience knew, that the heroes were going to win and everything would be returned to normal. Between the emotional situation resolving and the fact that I didn't feel like I really needed to tell the end of the story, that's why that one isn't going to be finished.

Also, yes, Ensign Routh is a self-insert. I really needed the escapism, people, what are you going to do? I threw up my hands and declared that it was silly crackfic anyway and threw him in there. At least he's not everybody's instant best friend who is also an amazing lover, I figure.
