It's been a while! Several stories I have unfinished is still on hold. I do want to go back and finish them, but I've been busy. Real life is keeping me busy all the time. I'm now a full time high school teacher, and also a full time master's student. My son is a senior and getting ready to become an adult. Life has been a whirlwind in the past few years compared to before.

I managed to put out a new fan fiction this year, Smaragdus arcanum Lunam. It just gripped me and I had to write it. I throughly enjoyed writing it in my spare time and it's complete. But I will try to continue to finish several more drawings for the story. They're posted on deviant art under same pen name. The story is also posted on AO3, with images in the chapters too.

I want to return to editing Caledonia Lilia Snape. I plan to post it on AO3 too, but with images too. I am considering lemon scenes in the story too, but only on AO3.

White Magnolia, Pink Chrysanthemum has been fully edited to the best of my ability. I use the full version of Grammarly program to edit and clean up my stories and it does take a lot of time to go through my chapters. If there are any errors or something that seemed not right, please drop me a PM and I'll be happy to take your feedback. I'm always looking to improve my writing everyday.

March 13, 2019:

I'm slowly editing Caledonia Lilia Snape. Also I am going through White Magnolia, Pink Chrysanthemum, due to a lot of error related to "Ping/Ling" confusion, and it's a mess. I am also struggling to keep up with other projects. I also have a part-time job, moving to a new house, and all that. So everything's at snail pace. Your encouragement (reviews), favorite, and following of my stories inspires me. Thank you!

Feb. 7, 2019:

I'm back! I've graduated and got my Bachelor's Degree and it felt good! Now I have a temporary part time job while I consider what to do with the next stage of my life (i.e. looking for a full time job for the next 20 years to retirement).

I know I have few stories I left hanging and want to finish them. But the writer's block is still holding me back. So I am reworking on Caledonia Lilia Snape, one of my favorite story. I've cleaned up the first 5 chapters so far.

Chapter 5 has some significant change to the chapter. I put in more perspectives on feelings and thoughts between Caledonia and Draco where I have failed to input the last time. I would suggest my readers who read the story to go back and read it again. It's one of my favorite scene in the story (this is where Draco finds out who Caledonia is/was).

Hope I can break down the writer's block soon so I can get the ball rolling on Soundless and The King and the Summoner.

Thank you for your patience. I appreciate my readers. Please drop in some reviews, they motivates me.

Well, it's been a while and life continue to lead me on an adventure. Some of my fan may noticed I changed my name. I felt it was time to change my pen-name. I also felt it was the year I start to let the name Yashodoa die. I went through a very difficult two years recently and am now starting to turn over to a new chapter in life.

I know I left few stories unfinished and hanging. I do still intend to finish them. I just need to find my wayward muses and tie them down to help me finish the stories. A new muse came in and decided to take resident in my head for a new story. I hope you enjoy it. I think it will be short one.

Common reviews I get:

Gender-bent. Majority of my stories are gender bender. I like to write that type of genre. If you don't like it, go away. It doesn’t mean I am anti-LGBT. I have one story that has male/male gender bender.

Grammar need improving: English is my second language. I am constantly learning every day and improving. Please note how old these fan fictions are. I have not edited or updated them in a long time and will not. I simply do not have time, which is why I haven't written any new ones. Trust me, there are a handful of fan fictions out there with really, really bad plotline, bad grammar and looking like were written by four years old. As Jareth, the wonderful Goblin King would say, "I wonder what your basis for comparison is." If it's published novels, you're in wrong place.

If you felt the need to leave a review on about how my grammar need to be improved. Please, don't say "your grammar is lacking" or "your grammar sucks". That's not constructive and I will not learn from this. Instead, point out one or two example in my story that need improving and give me a feedback on how it need to be improved. I'm more than happy to open up a PM and have a chat.

Don't say it. Show me.

"Are you against LGBT?"Don't be a daft! At first glance of my writing style gearing toward gender bender may appear that I am against gay pairing, but I am not. I simply like the idea of male/female role and putting the protagonist in a female role to experience feminism. It is also another reason to this, as a writer, I write what I know the best and sure as hell I do not know M/M pairing or even F/F pairing and why would I attempt to write what I don't know or experience and give you false idea of what it is? As much I enjoy yaoi stories/doujinshi, it's not realistic. I have many friends that are part of LGBT community and it never bothered me one bit, they happened to be the most wonderful people I know. So, STFU on that! If you don't like gender bender, then why the hell complain? Move on and read something else.

Offering to publish my fan fictions on other sites: No, no and no.Are you kidding me? Haven't you read my bio? Next one ask me get reported to the admin to be removed because that's scamming. I post my stories on here, AO3, and planning to post on Wattpad.

Offering to publish my fan fictions in different languages:No. That's my final answer. My story isn't a perfect stories to translate. My English grammar isn't perfect and it would screw up the translation and make a whole different meaning than it intend to. So. no. Also refer to the previous statement.

TRANSLATION NOTE AS OF 2021: I am still getting requests. I am considering it. I am open to Spanish translation with certain requirements. PM me first and we can talk.

Plagiarizing: "I don't know who you are, but I'll find you and kill you." Basically, I keep eyes on my fanfiction and do come after you and destroy you. I already had few of my fan fictions copied and enforced them to be taken down due to false author credit.

Another note on plagiarizing: they're fan fictions. Basically, yes and no. All fan fictions are plagiarized in a sense and credits do go to the original authors and whoever. No one here earns a cent off their fan fictions except to play with the characters and the concept of the story. So, stop accusing me of plagiarizing, you're plagiarizing too by writing fan fictions as well. Credits do go to the authors for their characters and stories. I just don't need to repeat them every single f*ck*ng chapters. It's done in the beginning and it's throughout the fan fiction, end of story.

One/two-word reviews: thanks, but really... a little bit more words are appreciated. Refer to Grammar need improving note.

Other reviews: Thank you for liking my story and appreciate you taking your time to write the compliments. I appreciate it and it brightens my day every time I get one. Maybe, maybe someday when I have time, I'll write more stories. I know I have so many on the backburner. I love you all!
