Author has written 5 stories for X-Men: The Movie, Pirates of the Caribbean, National Treasure, and Constantine.
At the time of this writing it is August in the year 2013. It has been almost 7 years since I posted anything here. It seems as if these stories come from another lifetime, and perhaps that is why I am back.
The year that I started to post my writings here was the year my father died. I threw myself into writing, be it fan-fiction, original work, poetry, anything. I tried to hide away from all the hurt and fear of losing the person to whom I was closest.
I eventually moved on, as people do, and put away all the things that I associated with that time. I stopped writing, I didn't stop having ideas, but I quit writing them. I moved away from the interests and things that had sustained me in my grief, because I now associated them with my grief. I developed new interests and new favourite characters, met new people, went to university, got married.
It was only last night that I had a moment of strange nostalgia that reopened these put away things. I remembered, out of the blue, a fanfic that I had adored when I was much younger. In fact, it was the first fanfic I ever read, from the first fandom I was ever a part of. It was a CATS fic called "Macavity's Queens" (you can find it on my favourites list, it's worth the read) posted on a CATS dedicated site. I couldn't remember the name or address, but I knew I would recognize the site when I saw it, so... to the googlemobile! The site is still there, but it's an old and somewhat broken geocities site. The first two chapters of the story are there, but only the first one would open, chapter two is lost in the recesses of the Internet. As I read, I remembered the hours I had spent writing CATS fanfiction of my own, with this story and it's companion "I Give You..." (same author) as the measure to which all my writing was held. I remembered how often I used to check the site, hoping a conclusion to the story would be posted. Then, when I put all of those things that had been so special to me away, CATS, "Macavity's Queens", and Idiosylph's Domicile for Jellicle Cats went with them.
I came here, wondering, hoping someone would have posted the story. I discovered not only did the author transfer it over, but that conclusion that I had hoped for, waited almost a decade for, was here too. I stayed up past three in the morning reading the entire thing.
Finally receiving the ending to this piece brought me back to when I wrote because I had a story I wanted to tell, not because I cared if other people wanted to read it. And it also made me realize that I can reclaim all those things that I put away for so long, my grieving is over, I can associate them with life now, not with death.
And to that end... I'm back!
This character is based on Morph's "Nightcrawler Spirit", "Sparrow Spirit", "Skinner Spirit" and "Constantine Spirit" stories. If you like mine, you should definatly read those.

-- "Mankind, that word should have new meaning for all of us today. We can't be consumed by our petty differences anymore. We will be united in our common interest. Perhaps its fate that today is the forth of July, and you will once again, be fighting for our freedom. Not from tyranny, oppression, or persecution... but from annihilation. We're fighting for our right to live, to exist. And should we win the day, the fourth of July will no longer be known as an American Holiday, but as the day when the world cried in one voice 'we will not go quietly into the night, we will not vanish without a fight'. We're going to live on, we're going to survive. Today, we celebrate our Independence Day!" -President's speech from Independence Day.

This process is slow, normally taking thousands and thousands of years. But every few hundred millennia, evolution leaps forward." -X-Men opening monologue, X2 closing monologue.
