*Deactivating Inner Censor*

Site Rules, Regs, and Explanations:

- I have a lot of stories in my head. I would love to write them all, but it's probably not gonna happen. That being said, I don't have a lot of patience for stupid. If i get annoyed with a story and the responses it receives, I'm liable to quit writing it forever or whenever I change my mind. I'm not saying I can't take criticism — I do and gladly — I'm saying leave an actual critique and let me know what I could improve on so that I can.

- This is an Entitlement-Free Zone. Do NOT NAG me about Fanfiction. It's fuckin' fanfiction. I don't get paid to write it. I barely get positive comments. I do it for fun because, like you, I'm a fan too. If I finish a story, then I finish it. If I don't, well, for the time you spent reading what was posted, were you not entertained?

- I'm not the best artist, but I love drawing. I also don't believe in censoring artwork. So if you click on anything that has an 18+ Warning, you will probably see a penis or two. I would love feedback on it, even something simple like "Like it" or "Your perspective is off on the (insert screwed up part here)".

- Deadlines evade me. I write slowly and I have the attention span of a mosquito in the dark.

- I'm kind, but I'm not charismatic. I can be brutally honest and most people don't like that. Even so, I like talking with people, discussing points of view, getting to know your thoughts and where ours differ. So if you have a thought then comment, it's cool. I promise to respond with the Inner Censor On.

Tentative Schedule: 05.05.2015 - ? (grad-school keeps me wiped out and busy right now)

Concentration: Hoshi (HnG) DONE! | Fan Art (?) | Original Comics (which i think will be likeable if i can get it right, i don't know about posting it yet. but that is what i work on in between grad-school papers)

If you friend me let me know what you want to see below or in a PM because i do use filters.

Well, that sounds interesting. I found that The Fall of Icarus to be a rather interesting storyline and I was interested in where it was headed as a fanfic. I especially loved your choice in pairing (It is rather hard to find quality written Neji/Naruto fics in my opinion), but I see that you have not actually given it up and that it will instead be an original fic. This makes me even more intrigued. Personally I like slow moving, intricate stories like yours. I guess it might not be to everyone's tastes, oh well you can not please everyone. Keep up the good work so far.

P.S. I would be interested in being added as a friend if possible.

thou art added
thank you so much! in not trying to please everyone and instead choosing to please myself more, and hopefully (without much hope) still hold my readers' interest, i'm really glad i didn't lose you in the process. at this point, after spending all day trying to reconfigure Naruto'verse to one of my Realms, i can definitely promise the conversion will be slow moving and intricate ^_^;

Well, I can't deny that it is very sad to hear that Fallen won't continue in fanfic form, but I understand your reasoning. It is hard when you put a lot of work into the plot and themes, and all people care about are the pairings. There is so much more to a story than the romance guys!
I feel a bit bad because I've just been reading without commenting, but I didn't have anything constructive to say. It seemed like you have it all worked out and had a support system in place already. Sorry.
And as for world building: I have completely moved on from the Naruto fannon, apart from storys like yours who keep dragging me back to check for updates. I recently looked at the latest Manga chapter and laughed, I have no idea how authors like you can build and weave such a complex and believable storyline from so little. I admire your story and I admire your decision to work harder to try and get the audience it deserves.
Good luck. (And if you could friend me, that would be great.)

welcome aboard!

no worries. you've commented now, and i thank you for it ^_^ d. i'm glad you understand.

dude. it's cool. but . . . *blinks* i seem that well put together? Amazing. i swear i'm a mess, and my Beta can attest to that.

I have completely moved on from the Naruto fannon,

i don't blame you. besides all of 2 writers, i don't read fanfiction for Naruto either, and the compliment you've given me is like fireworks in my brain right now. so, really thank you so much for the interest in reading my stories no matter what form they come in.

Re: welcome aboard!
Well the story seemed well put together... close enough?

Re: welcome aboard!
*smiles* Are you asking me if there's an actual plot? That answer is: Not anymore. I write by a practice of ever-evolving-ideas. So, I may start off with a theme or a scene in my head, and from there the question becomes 'What acts best describes this theme?' or 'What acts lead up to this scene or come after it?' And then starts the constant worry that I'm failing at expressing the heart of the idea even as it molds to suit the story more. Did 'Fall' have a plot? Yes, but it changed. Did it have an outline? Yes, but it became irrelevant after chapter three. 'Fall' is ultimately just a List of Ideas. Those ideas will either be executed well, or not so well. Thing is, the only way I can know that is from comments. So, when there is no feedback or when the majority of it has nothing to do with the storytelling, then to me that says the story failed, time to scrap it and perhaps try again. All that to say, if you think one of my stories is well put together, then I think that's the best news I read.

oh, i am dearly awaiting 'hoshi' continuation..i'm really enjoying this fic.. keep writing!
Mar. 16th, 2013 04:52 am (UTC)
wow. you must have the patience of Saint Peter awaiting the return of the disco age, because i have been kicking myself in the head trying to get my Angst Demon to allow me to finish this story for the last couple years and it's not going well . . . but i promise your patience will not be in vain! unless i die unexpectedly Hoshi will be finished. thanks for the encouragement.

though not awaiting disco...
I recently went back to reread some of my favourite stories from the HnG fandom, and was pretty happy to find this thread. It's nice knowing that you do plan to finish this. If it doesn't come to pass, can I request that there be a post about how it ends? It's not the same as reading the story itself, but I like to have some closure.

Hope your muse cooperates!

Re: though not awaiting disco...
y'know, it never ceases to amaze me how many people actually like this fic. very humbling, but it also adds a hint of pressure because i don't want to disappoint, but my writing isn't what it used to be (and i can't really say it's improved . . . more like degenerated). Your request is valid, though so, if i don't finish this story by the end of this year, i will post a conclusion. everybody deserves closure. here's hoping the Demon agrees. Thank you for such a sweet comment.

Re: though not awaiting disco...
Thank you; I appreciate that.

A person's writing is always evolving, so I think you're rather hard on yourself (though to be honest, I've never met a writer I loved who didn't agonise over their every written work.) Do what works for you. Your diehard readers will make our way back, like I did, so many years after. A good story has a way of surfacing in our consciousness every so often. Rereading them is like meeting an old friend--you rediscover the connection you had, and feel the changes that time has wrought on both of you. Sometimes that means enough has changed that you drift, but the memories remain fond.

I hope Hoshi is like that for you, when you reread the earlier chapters. If not, I understand. There's no forcing it, because lets face it: those muses are impossible when they want to be.
