I’m so lost!

Lol Ok, so that’s kind of just me, being overly dramatic … Seriously, though, I just realized that my last blog post put me offline for awhile, but … I’m back (well, yanno!)


Anyway, if you don’t know, Purity 9: Subterfuge is now complete. IKR? Never, ever thought it’d get done; I know … But now it is. It makes me so sad. I’m really going to miss writing about Evan. A lot.


Also complete are the Purity edits I promised. It has a bit of a different feel, I think, so do download the new version of it, too. You can get both of those off Ao3. Just select the “Entire Work” button at the top of the chapter you’re on. Purity loads pretty quickly, but don’t be surprised if Subterfuge takes a bit to load in it’s entirety. It’s HUUUUUUGE …. But once it does load, just hit ‘Download’ and select the format you want. I know that the PDF version works for them—that’s what I downloaded. I can’t account for the others, though. But I hope you enjoy anyway.


So now, I’m just kind of sitting here, trying to figure out where I go from here. I could work on Purity 10: Anomaly, sure, but… I just don’t know. Let me know if there’s something in particular that you’re looking forward to? Help me out here. I’m feeling kind of lonely, after all!

Purity Rewrite: The cat made me do it …

… or not do it, as the case may be … lol.  He’s such a pain, especially when I’m trying to write …

That aside, I wanted to encourage everyone to re-read Purity as I post the new chapters.  I’ve got another one ready to go, and I think the new chapters are a lot of fun.  Upon re-reading it, I found that there was a glaring discrepancy missing toward the beginning; that there were a lot of places that needed to be fleshed out and ‘finished’, as it were.  Well, I hope that people agree with me.

Purity mass edits and Subterfuge update

Wow, it’s been awhile, huh?  Sorry for the long break.  I’ve had a ton of stuff going on, but I’m glad to say that I’m slowly getting back into the swing of things.  By the time I was ready to jump back in, though, I figured it’d be a good time to go back and see how far I’ve come, and so I started reading Purity, and …

Well, I don’t know.  I mean, I guess that the mind can play tricks on you, right?  Sometimes you remember things a little fonder than you maybe should have, and I think that’s the case with Purity.  Don’t get me wrong, I still love the story, but …

But as I read through this, my first fanfiction, I started to realize a few things: things like … good God, it’s bad.  Okay, well, it’s not BAD but it’s certainly not great, either.  In fact, I spent a lot of time cringing as I read it, and to be brutally honest, I’m not entirely sure why anyone else bothered to go on to read the continuations from it.  Sounds harsh, maybe but then I am likely my own worst critic.

So my options were 1) leave it alone and keep grimacing every time I thought about that story–one of the ones that I really do love best, or 2) Rewrite it.  Okay, not a complete rewrite but a mass edit to fix the things that made me cringe: things like characterizations and areas where I just kind of skimmed over parts that I just was too lazy to write.  Well, maybe not lazy.  Maybe it’s more of an evolution in my own writing that makes me realize now that the story line is good even if the writing isn’t always as complimentary.

Thing is, this is the story of InuYasha and Kagome, and it’s a story that I’ve always loved.  I really hope that  you’ll take the time to read the edited chapters as I post them.  I think that it’ll serve to improve the quality and overall story.

As for Subterfuge … don’t worry.  I’ve been working on that one, too.  At the moment, I’ve got two chapters of it in beta, and you’ll get those as I get them back.  Believe it or not, we’re only about 1/2 way done with Evan’s story.  I’m hoping to have this one wrapped up at least by the end of the year.  Wish me luck!

Thanks to everyone who sent me emails or stopped in the forum to let me know that you were thinking of me.  You guys have helped me a lot, even if you don’t realize it, and for that, I sincerely thank you all.
