THE ONLY STORY NOW IN PROGRESS IS It Ends Here Tonight, MY HP FANFIC... CONSIDER ALL ELSE ABANDONED, FOR NOW AT LEAST
LATELY (this has sort of turned into a blog-like area... oh well):
September 2005: Well, then. I'm not updating at the moment, just really explaining why I'm not updating. I've just started my first semester of college, and to say that things are an adjustment is a big understatement. I mean, I'm enjoying myself and everything... It's just different. I'm going to school in downtown Chicago, and absolutely adore the city. I love it. But my school is mostly a commuter school, so it's sort of hard to make friends as part of a small portion of people who choose to live in the college housing. So, basically I'm confessing that I'm not used to being constantly around a group of friends. I dunno, I'm in the middle of a down-swing of mood at the moment. No, really, I do like it here. I love the city, and I'm enjoying my classes thus far... Yup, I'm in art school in chicago (no, not the art institute, I'm not fond of art snobs, I'm at Columbia College Chicago), and its so my thing. I just wish I could meet more people! Any of my fanfiction readers live in Chicago? Do I have any readers left after my long, all summer absence? I'm starting to wonder. I abandoned Aravian, and I've been less than punctual in updating my new idea... but I swear, I really have been working on this thing! I'm a little more than half done with chapter 3 of It Ends Here Tonight. I really do love this story idea, it's completely my baby. I just didn't expect this summer to have been so... melancholy and hectic, I suppose. I ended up working 7 days a week, so when I wasn't at work I was trying to squeeze in the last minutes of time with all my friends, because, let's face it, nothing's ever going to be the same. In reality, my parents' house is never going to be home again. The next four years are a transient period where I'm to find the place where I belong, caught between kid and adult, not quite having either. It's strange, and I didn't quite grasp the magnitude of difference before. And it's not like I'm going to be able to go home for my summers, really... My mother and step-father are moving to North Carolina, so the only times I'm going back to my hometown are when I'm staying with friends! It's all so strange! Exciting, and daunting at the same time.
I dunno, I'm not sure why I'm rambling like this here. I suppose I'm just enjoying the blabber space. Anyway, I really do intend to update soon, and to anyone who's reading this, know I love you, because it means I still may have a few readers! Anybody, feel free to e-mail me at Deastra@aol.com
June 2005: Yippee, chapter 2 of It Ends Here Tonight has arrived! It's two in the morning on the day I graduate high school, so I'm hoping for some positive feedback here... God, I've just been so busy lately, I don't even know what to say here. So I'm not bothering. It's a time of transition, and I'm just going to try to update this story regularly... I'm hoping every 2-3 weeks, when I say regularly. Anything beyond that is a little beyond me, usually. Anyway, I hope that this finds me still having readers, and if it does, I hope you enjoy.
April 2005: Hi guys. Bet you thought I was done with fanfiction... so did I, actually. Well, surprise! Unfortunately, I must say that I'm only back for one story, and that's my new Harry Potter Songfic Epic. I can honestly say that I think it's one of my better ideas. So, yes, this means that Aravian has been officially abandoned. I'm sorry, but I'm just not someone who can write it anymore. I've tried, I honestly have. All my writing now is either originals or this new fanfic. I intend to update very regularly on this, and I know where I'm going with it this time, so don't worry about getting attached to this one and having it abandoned! ForAravian I ran out of ideas. Here, I've got 26 chapters of ideas planned out. So I can honestly recommend it. As always, feel free to e-mail me... just put something identifying into the subject line, or I might just automatically delete it if I don't already know your e-mail address!
Late November/Early December: I've just added the second chapter of my original series, The Lonely Ones, which I'm fairly pleased with. In fanfiction news, I'm sorry to say I haven't done much more with Aravian. I'm not going to consider it abandoned, however, as I do intend to update it. My apologies to everyone who's been reviewing, and stuck with me since I began.
ME: Well, I'm finally updating this baby, something I haven't done since I got the account god knows how long ago. I'm no longer a high school student, but a high school graduate, and headed for art school in the fall. Columbia College Chicago, to be exact. I'm really looking forward to it (because I've become a serious art nerd). I love to read, draw/paint, and write (not always in that order), and to hang out on the beach of Lake Michiga with my friends... despite the nasty sunburn I'm sporting right now. I was the art, layout, & technologyeditor for my school's art & literary magazine for two years now, and I'm sad that that's overwith... though I'm happy high school's over in a big way.

WARNING: To all the good people who read my stuff and like, I tend to take awhile to update and do so in spurts. For a month my story will be just a prologue, and you'll sign on the next day and WHAM! 11 chapters!
