Latest status on fic updates.

Activity in a nutshell: (as of March 31, 2012)

  1. Hacking away at revising Pictures on the Wall. Priority.

  2. Lots of random drabbly bits in the works + mulling over the active challenges.

  3. Series that have overtaken my muse brain lately: Naruto, Natsume Yuujinchou, Ao no Exorcist, Ao Haru Ride, Inuyasha, and Prince of Tennis. That's the most fandoms I've ever had attacking me at the same time. :P

  4. Been stabbing at The Paradigm of Understanding here and there, but with all that's going on, it's gone on the back burner a bit.

  5. Plot bunnies for long fics, OMG. *needs to stay away*

Active Challenges

[ profile] 24_times - Table Index - claimed Ao Haru Ride, general series

[ profile] 365drabbles, multi-fandom, no prompts, no table, and works in conjunction with other challenges when applicable. I signed up in order to get myself to write more, even if it's just a short sucky snippet.

[ profile] 500themes - Prompt Index - multi-fandom, 500 prompts, and works in conjunction with any applicable challenges or fics. Yes, I'm insane.

Ongoing Multi-Chapter Fics

Pictures on the Wall (Fandom: Hana Yori Dango) - story index on this journal
NOT abandoned and likely never will be. All 18 chapters save for the prologue have been deleted, and the fic is currently undergoing a revision. As of March 2012, the revised version of chapter 1 has been posted. I'll be adding the new revisions as they get done.

Cycles of Destiny (Fandom: Inuyasha)
In limbo. As of now, I'm not sure what to say about this fic. I lost my entire stack of notes, fic excerpts, and outline for this fic some time ago when we were renovating our place... and well, that doesn't bode well for this fic at all. I still remember how I had wanted the fic to go (at large), but there were a lot of details, many of which were already written, that's now gone. It totally killed my drive.

However, I also know I had one heck of a story planned for this fic and I can't help feeling that it would be a terrible waste if I don't continue it, hence this limbo I've found myself in for CoD. It's an epic, with a lot of intricate stuff planned for the plot... some of which, I'm sad to say, I've forgotten. At this point, this fic is probably on hold until I can work out the knots all over again and perhaps draw up another outline for it. It simply isn't the kind of fic where I can just wing it. It's much too complicated for that, unfortunately. :(

The Paradigm of Understanding (Fandom: Naruto)
Still working on it. This was started as a highly experimental Kiba/Hanabi piece, with an approach that's more about the mood and the emotion as opposed to the plot. Because of that, it's also meant to be short (both the chapters themselves and the story as a whole). Chapter 3 is about 90% done but I'm reevaluating how I want to continue the rest of the fic, so it's not finished as of yet.


Defining Moments (Fandom: Naruto)
Considered "complete" at any given time. I seem to get asked a lot about this one, but Defining Moments was always just a random Shikamaru/Temari project that consisted of mostly stand-alone ficlets dumped in one place on instead of published as separate stories. I suppose that was a bad idea as it seemed to give some readers the wrong idea. They're all separate stories, and I simply write and add a new one if or when inspiration strikes.

That said, while I love the pairing, I honestly don't think I'm very good at writing them. I lumped them together on partly because it was something of a trial for me to try and write ShikaTema. I have high doubts that I'd add much, if any, more to the collection - at least not until I think I can do a better job of it than I've been able to. :P

Scrapped or Discontinued

The Feelings Within (Fandom: Hana Yori Dango)
As of 2011, this fic is officially scrapped and will most likely be deleted off eventually. In truth, it was a project started from the need to vent (and probably to personally choke Umi to death with my words or some such thing) during the amnesia arc and the horror that was Umi, but that time had obviously long passed. And after all these years, I just no longer have the proper motivation, inspiration, nor purpose to continue with it anymore.
