Writing Meme!


Pick any passage of 500 words or less from any fanfic I’ve written, and stick that selection in my ask/fan mail. I will then give you the equivalent of a DVD commentary on that snippet: what I was thinking when I wrote it, why I wrote it in the first place, what’s going on in the character’s heads, why I chose certain words, what this moment means in the context of the rest of the fic, lots of awful puns, and anything else that you’d expect to find on a DVD commentary track.

jeffsgoldenbloom asked: So I just read all of On the Shores of Loch Katrine and am DYING. Oh my goodness. The noise I made when I realized that chapter 15 wasn't there was not human XD It is such a great story! I am going to go look at your other stuff to calm myself down.

Haha!  I’m so glad you enjoyed it!  Chapter 15 will be here soon.  I have an extensive masterlist, do enjoy!

Time Strangers (3/5)


“It is so weird seeing Belle and Mr. Gold like this,” Emma remarked dryly as they reviewed their inventory together.  The aforementioned couple were noticeably absent, but Neal was uneasy. 

“Yeah,” He agreed a little brusquely. “Kinda mystified how Belle fell for the old man—especially looking and acting like that.”  He thrust a few knives roughly into the bag and Emma watched him carefully.

“You’re kinda on edge,” She noted. “Everything okay?” 

 “I just don’t like being here,” Neal told her, slinging the bag across his shoulder. “Doesn’t exactly bring back happy memories.”

Emma twisted her lips.  “I thought you and Mr. Gold…sort of worked things out.”

Neal raised and lowered one shoulder.  “I don’t know. He…asked me to come to his wedding. He and Belle are getting married later in the evening…guess I’ll miss it after all.”

Song of the Siren (2/9)

AN:  Sorry it took so long, guys. Hope you enjoy!

Emma sighed, leaning her head against the wall.  She wasn’t too proud to admit it—she’d underestimated Blaise Gold.  Somehow, she’d imagined he’d be a spoiled little rich boy, but he’d surprised her.  He was cunning, wily in away, cleverer than she’d anticipated.  And it had landed her behind bars. 

And yet, there was a streak of honor in him.  Ordinarily, she’d be rather nervous in a pirate’s brig, at the mercy of any scoundrel onboard.  But she’d heard Neal sharply tell his shipmates not to bother her, or he’d string them up and fly a new sail.  It was unexpected, to say the least. 

She sniffed the air.  Standing, she walked over to the porthole, frowning at the shifting winds.  Storm was coming—she supposed she’d find out firsthand how good a captain Neal Cassidy was.

Anonymous asked: How's your writing going in general? Do you have any good ideas you're working on? I know a lot of people are asking you about when specific fics will get a new chapter, but I just like to ask people about how their writing is going overall. :)

Well thank you, I appreciate that!

Writing is going sporadic.  I’ve felt very scattered lately and haven’t been able to focus on one single project, compounded with the fact that I’ve been working on original writing too—I’m trying to get a novel published by September 2015.  Add in my work schedule, my class schedule, and a little down-time to read, and you have a very stressed-out phoenix who feels guilty for letting down her readers and afraid she’s not going to meet her deadlines.  

Last night though was good—reached a breaking point in Song of the Siren and figured out how to end the chapter.  For new ideas, I’ve been doing a little ficlet of sorts involving Kagome, Inuyasha, their three kids—and Kagome’s father.  That’s been a lot of fun.  And I’m bound and determined to get a chapter up of Time Strangers before the premier.  (I’d like to finish Time Strangers ideally, but I need to be realistic about my goals)
