!! TURNING OFF PMs. PLEASE READ THIS !!
I've been getting a lot of PMs, and since I changed emails, I haven't been actually receiving them. I don't have time to answer all the backlogged stuff, and I'm really sorry for that, because all of them were super sweet and very respectful, and you definitely deserve more of a response than this. But... it's close to the holidays and I'm so distracted with work that I can't even stay caught up with that, so... umm, I figure I can either PULL EVERYTHING OMG, or just say all this stuff below, turn off my PMs for a while, and hope you all understand.
1.) Can I download WA/CLM/GV/DH/All the other stuff. Fuck yeah! Please do. There are some links below to the files--PDFs and Docs. I honestly am flattered you even care.
2.) Can I translate WA? Yeah, so I used to ask nicely that you didn't, but the truth is, I can't stop you because I have no legal ground, and there are already so many out there that I don't have time to check on, that it's like... eh? Who really cares, whatever. Really, just don't paint my story as having pedophilia or incest or bestiality or anything equally as squicky, and I'm cool. Long story short, just don't be a dick. And don't be offended if I'm not around to pimp it, it's nothing personal. I'm just not all that active around here like I used to be.
3.) Are you going to publish WA/write a sequel for WA/fix all the errors in WA? Awww, thanks for caring, but ugh. No, Jesus. Make it stop. WA is deader than a doornail. I said everything I wanted to say, resolved everything I wanted to resolve (into the ground). There's no fun or creativity in revisiting the same shit, you know?
4.) Can I make an AU of WA/CLM/GV/DH/All the other stuff. Really? Fuck yeah! Please do. Just don't paint my story as having pedophilia or incest or bestiality or anything equally as squicky, and I'm cool. Long story short, just don't be a dick. And don't be offended if I'm not around to pimp it, it's nothing personal. I'm just not all that active around here like I used to be.
5.) Can I link your story on my top 100/award site/rec site/journal. Has fandom really gotten to the point where people feel like they have to ask permission to give a compliment? Sure, link my fics wherever. And thanks for caring. I'm sorry you felt like you ever had to ask. I'm really just cool with whatever.
6.) Can I print out WA/CLM/GV/DH/All the other stuff? Hey, if you can afford that kind of frivolity, then go for it.
7.) You never answered my PM/Review/Email/Tweet/DM :( Shit, I'm really sorry. I wish I could keep up with RL good enough to have some expendable time for fandom, but the truth is, I suck pretty hard. Your PM/review/email/tweet/DM was probably well thought out and equally as sweet, and I'm really sorry I didn't give it the response it deserved. Forgive me? :(
8.) When are you going to update CLM? Sobsobsobsob. (idk)
9.) Are you secretly updating CLM/WA/Rising/GV/Whatever on some other site? Sorry, no. I'm just not updating at all right now. Because again, me with the failing.
10.) Where is this banner/outtake/icon/css/spreadsheet you said you'd do for me, but never did? Cripes, let me find a hole to crawl in real quick. Okay, found it. Here's the thing: I had all intentions of doing it, but the truth? Sometimes I bite off more than I can chew, and that's all my fail. There's no better feeling in this world than making someone happy by just creating something with a little of my time. So I've promised a lot, and have only been able to make good on a little. I'm truly sorry for that. To be frank, I'm in this boat with paid clients, too, so I have to clear that list before I can clear this one. Forgive me?
11.) Can I pay you to make me a banner/icon/css/spreadsheet/website? But I've so clearly demonstrated my time-fail, why would you want to pay money for that? I just don't feel comfortable accepting money from my friends until I'm confident I can give them the attention both they and their money deserve. And a few of you are out there who were unfortunate enough to ask this question before I made that rule, and you're top priority right now, swear it.
12.) Are you dead? Yes.
13.) Have you flounced? I'm too lazy to muster the internal diva necessary to do such a thing. (ETA: LOL never mind, found her!)
14.) I've been worried about you... :') AWWWWWWWWW! Don't be worried! I'm fine, just busy. But wow, thanks for giving a crap! That makes me all warm and fluffy, you have no idea.
15.) You've been nominated for a so-and-so award! REALLY? Wow, thanks! Sorry I'm not around to pimp it. I'm sure the other nominees deserve it more anyway. But you're super awesome for doing it. I know how much of a pain organizing one of those things can be. Go take a bubble bath. Now. Do it. Doooo it.
16.) I saw your story posted on this site/torrent/database/forum/Polish fan-site/my bank's bulletin board, and... Stop. Thanks for being respectful enough to alert me, but so long as they give me credit, really. I don't care. If they aren't giving me credit, then I'm sure (in a very not conceited way) that more people who've read it know it's mine than not. I'm not losing sleep over someone stealing my Twilight fanfiction, you know? So chill. Enjoy something chocolatey. Right now. Go find a cookie. Or a cupcake. Mmmmm...
17.) These people on such-and-such website said such-and-such about so-and-so and then such-and-such about you, and it was really mean and... Stop. Thanks for being respectful enough to alert me, but so long as they aren't threatening to hunt me down and cause me actual physical harm, really. I don't care. I'm sure they have valid criticisms of both my fanfic and my penname persona. I'm not losing sleep over someone in the Twilight fandom being vocal about their dislike of me/my stories/my artwork/my name/my face/my abuse of adverbs/my kittens, you know? So chill. Enjoy something chocolatey. Right now. Go find a cookie. Or a cupcake. Mmmmm...
18.) What's the difference between CENSORED WA and UNCENSORED. Hm. Bodily fluids? Described penetration? Thrusting/spurting/slippery/purple head/wet/hard/tight/etc? I just took out the graphic sex and violence. You're not missing anything well-written or tasteful, trust me.
Well, that was a lot of word vomit.
To summarize: I'm busy -- Don't know when I'm updating -- Don't care what anyone does with WA, just don't be a dick -- Eat cookies and cupcakes -- I owe a lot of people stuff -- I'm sorry a lot.
Hope you all have a safe/happy holiday and New Year!
