Author has written 17 stories for Rurouni Kenshin, and Naruto.
Bio (because I'm always curious about the author behind the stories so you might be too): Married. Mother of 2 rambunctious boys. I took a break for a few years while raising my kids but now that they're a little more self-sufficient, I've been getting back into posting fanfic. Working on a variety of stories right now for RK. More details below.
3/25/22 As you might have read, JazzQuirk has taken on the tremendous task to help me with my stories. Her help has been so invaluable to me. Even better, she may be in the middle of continuing her own stories. Check out what she's got up and don't forget to leave a review - you won't regret it!
Work and family stuff has gotten a little busier so I haven't been as productive as I hoped. But Cooperation will be finished in the next couple of months and Protector is getting underway. I'm still working on a couple of other shorter stories but they're only in the finishing stages of being written. I have to admit, it's getting harder to find inspiration to write and I don't know if it's just because I'm busy or it seems like the fandom is truly done and that makes me so sad.
On a side note, I finally finished watching RK: The Final. And while I liked it, I was a little disappointed at the same time. It just didn't have the same charm and cohesiveness as the previous 3 movies. I think they tried to cram too much into one movie and we never got to see the emotional impact of Enishi and Kenshin. But that's just me and overall I was glad to watch it and imagine the happily-ever-after that Kenshin and Kaoru deserve.
2/17/22 Writing is hard.
2/4/22 The sequel to Defender is posted because I wasn't ready to post Cooperation. And while that will definitely put me behind schedule in finishing posting the latter by the end of February, I decided I wanted to have some extra time editing it. I'm not entirely happy with the chapter because I think it's too much information all at once, but I'm not really sure how else to convey things. This means I've sort of failed in my resolution to just write, edit, and post without getting too anxious about things, but I do want to submit the best chapter I can.
I tend to write longer chapters because I personally prefer a nice chunk of story all at once (or I wait until the story is completely posted before reading it because an unfinished story is the worst kind of crime), but I am considering shortening chapters and posting it faster. Currently, each chapter is at least 5k long. Let me know what you prefer: longer chapters that might take longer to post or shorter chapters with a slightly faster posting schedule.
