Fandoms I write/wrote in:
Apologies: To all of you who have been reading and following my stories and have been waiting ages for me to update, I'm really and truly sorry. Because of real life and the difficulties of growing up, my drive to write has practically shriveled and died. I wish it weren't so, but unfortunately, it is. I haven't written something for pleasure in a long time. I don't know if I will be able to any time in the foreseeable future. Some of you may notice that there are stories missing from my list down below (below my summaries.) That is because I removed all of the stories that are WIPs that I knew I probably wouldn't work on, even if I got the drive to write again. I have basically only left my completed works. If someone wants to adopt any of the abandoned or "on hiatus" stories, please let me know, and we can talk. It's not something I generally do, but for the right person, I'd make an exception.
Here is a semi-complete list of fanfics in alphabetical order that I have written:
--All right, my lovely readers. I have new information for you. I am getting tired of writing down all of my stories on here and brief descriptions, so I am probably not going to do it any more. If you have any questions about a particular story that has not been featured, please drop me a line via PM. I would be more than happy to give you guys the inside scoop. I will probably continue to update what is already here, but adding new information is getting to be tedious.
BIG Argument- This is my very newest story, as of June 30th, 2008. I read a story by Hitlazar, and decided that I wanted to write a totally random story too...so I did. I think it is humorous...but that might just be me. Please take a look, I swear it won't be a total waste of time! Complete
Boy London- Abandoned- I'm sorry to everyone who actually liked this story. I really never wanted to abandon any of my stories...but I began writing this story when I wasn't that good of a writer... And now that I'm much better at writing (at least in my opinion) I just can't finish this. I also can't rewrite the story because the whole concept is just so bad. I'm not taking the story down, though, because I want it to stand as a testament to how much I have improved over the years.
Can You See Me Now?- This story was a hard one to post because it is so ambiguous. It could work with any fandom, or no fandom at all. It could be ay character, any gender, whatever. I liked it, and it came to me while I was listening to T.A.T.u. It is currently under the Harry Potter fandom, but I wasn't thinking Harry Potter when I wrote it. I wasn't thinking about a fandom or anything, just the song and that phrase that inspired the whole thing. Complete (Has been updated and revamped, so go take a look)
Change in Me- Indefinite Hiatus-- This is the rewritten version of Why Me? I decided to go ahead an upload it before I was completely finished with it because I want to see how it will be received. It's quite changed from it's parent story, and I think it's a bit better written. The story line is going to veer quite a ways from the original, but I think that it will be all the better for it, especially as the original was meant to be a oneshot. This story is going to be pure HP/DD with mentions of DM/BZ. Harry is not going to go off and sleep with Draco, and neither is Dudley. Hope you all enjoy the new story.
Divine Wind- Abandoned-- I'm a bum...and I hate this story. I think it is utter crap, and I don't even want to look at it anymore. This probably won't ever be finished unless some magical beta faery drops down from the heavens and figures out how to make this story better. So, unless that happens, this story is a lost cause and I'm not working on it. Not even to rewrite. I'm leaving it up here to show how much I think I've grown as a writer in the last couple of years.
Don't Hide From Me- This started out as a oneshot, but then someone asked me to add to it, so I decided that I would. So now it is a two-shot, I guess. I'll add to it more if I get more requests for it, but other than that, it is finished. And, I think I will let everyone who doesn't know about this one in on the summary: Riku and Leon are friends, at first. Then Leon realizes that Riku is pitying him, so he runs away. In the second chapter, Riku and Leon have a dinner guest, and Riku shows his true colors. If you want to know more about this one, you can ask, or you can scroll down to the bottom of the page and read it for yourself. Between the two chapters, it is probably about 8000 words, so that isn't that bad. Please read and review. Complete...for now...
Missing Your Presence- This is a new one I started right before I made that contest in Don't Hide From Me! It is another Kingdom Hearts fic, but this one is going to be longer. This story has several different pairings in it, some past, some unrequited, some raunchy. This is one of the ones that go out to wonderful Fran, who won the contest in Don't Hide From Me! Please read and review! Chapter 1 and 2 up, working on 3.
Secret Agent Men- Abandoned (Sorry Francine)-- I finally got around to posting the first chapter of Fran's commission story that she won in the Don't Hide From Me! contest. I hope she likes it, as she hasn't seen it before. I'll post up each chapter after I get five or more reviews on the chapter before it. And, I am really excited, because this makes my 15th story on FF.net. I never thought that I would get here, but get here I did! Thank you to everyone who has stuck with me over the years.
Sora's Grand Plan - This one was one of two assignments for my Creative Writing class. We had a cycle write that day, and so this is really a compilation of my classmates' work and mine. I, of course, decided to take out some parts and add in others, but I must give them credit for taking this story in a good direction, even though they don't know much about Kingdom Hearts, they didn't realize Sora was a boy, and they didn't know that Sora and Riku were supposed to be together. Complete
Story of My Life - Abandoned - This story was originally started because I was dumped. I was in a bad place emotionally, and writing was a healthy outlet for the pain. However, as many artists know, you can really only make the art borne of pain when you're in pain. So, now that I'm plenty over the betrayal, I can't work on this story anymore. I may be able to pick it up again (probably th next time I get dumped...) but until that time comes, it's pretty much abandoned. (Yeah...it's been over 3 years since the betrayal that inspired this story...and I've been dumped several times since then...not working on this...)
Summer Heat - This one was the first assignment for my Creative Writing class that I thought I would post as a fun little story. It is in the KH fandom, and is really more cute than anything. Complete
The Life- This is my very first...ever...Sesshoumaru/Rin story. I was looking up some sexy pictures of Sesshoumaru...and I saw some cute ones of him smiling, and him with Rin. So, I decided to write a story in which I showed off that side that smiles...and cries. This is a sad, or rather, bittersweet story about the love and the life of the Feudal Era's fiercest demon. Complete
The Light at the End of the Tunnel - Indefinite Hiatus-- I started this a couple of years ago (my freshmen year of high school), and I have been slowly working on it when I am not doing something else, which is like never. It is a Kingdom Hearts fic that encompasses some pretty dark things, but ultimately is about coming out of the darkness and into the light. It is bittersweet, but well worth the read.
Tree Trimming - This is one of my older stories that I wrote just after I wrote What Do You Think? It is the same fandom, for the most part, but it has some mature themes to it, more so than the other. I had originally only had it up on AFF.net, but I decided that it was safe enough to put it up here. I made sure all of the naughty parts are in italics, so that anyone who wants to skip them can. There are about four or five naughty parts in all, and most of them are also surrounded by a line of SCSCSC's. I hope everyone enjoys this Christmas fanfic! Complete
What Do You Think? - It is the first fanfic that I managed to successfully make into a oneshot. It is short and fluffy and wonderfully fantastic. It is a FFVII fanfic that is a little OOC, but I think that it works with the scenario. Complete one-shot.
What Lies Beneath - Indefinite Hiatus-- Okay, so this story was originally supposed to be about Vampires and such...but...that was dumb. Sooo, instead I scrapped that idea, and the one that followed it, and here is what you now have. Severus and Harry had worked together closely during the war. Harry saved Snape's life in the fight with Nagini, so he didn't die. Draco is a ruddy pest, but Harry tries to get on with him anyways. Other stuff happens too, but you have to read the story to know what. :D
What To Do If Your Boyfriend Is Also Your Brother -This one is an Elricest story, which I am really new at. Jayden and I both recently jumped into it, and this is what came of mine. I am thrilled with the way it came out, and it is really just the story that allows me to dip my toes is the pool. I might have more Elricest out later, but really...if you want good Elricest, like really really good Elricest, go read Jayden Winters' stuff, like Let It Snow, or anything by Ren421. They both rock...way better than me...heh. Complete
Why Me? - Indefinite Hiatus-- This story is an unusual pairing: Dudley Dursley/Harry Potter. It also has the pairing Dudley Dursley/Draco Malfoy and Harry Potter/Ronald Weasley. I know some people won't like these pairings, but me and mine do, so that is all that matters...in my opinion. (Not to sound crass...) I am hoping that this story stays a big hit, as right now it is getting about a billion times more hits than any of my other stories.
I will try to be more diligent about posting information about updates for any of you who are eagerly awaiting them. I update this page every time something happens, which is really not that often.
Thank you all for looking at my profile, I really appreciate the attention.
With awesome love and many happy warm fuzzies for all,
(scroll down to read my stories. They are good, honest. If you are dissatisfied, leave me a review telling me how crappy it is and I will send you a whole box of online animal cookies. I swear.)
