Freaky Flowers

Happy April everyone! Springtime is here and finals is riding up on my ass. So, in recent news, Bones has been recently updated and it's well on its way to completion while I'm having a bit more difficulty with Howl. I'm considering putting the story on an indefinite hiatus until I can gather my thoughts properly for the story to come together in the way I want it. Now, some of you keep asking me for more scenes involving Jade and Lucien, and I understand that I listed the story as a romance but it is merely a factor that aids in Jade's development as a character. The primary focus in the main character, not the main character and her hot love interest. I'm sorry if you became interested in Bones because you thought it would be fluff and smut and all that jazz, but that's not the case. There's more to a girl's life than finding a boyfriend, settling down and making babies; Jade is coming to terms with who she is, her heritage and what in the hell she's going to do with her life. Tough decisions will have to be made, events will begin to happen, things will only get more complicated from here.

Now, the next story in the series is called Crave and its two main protagonists are a Warlock named Astrid and a loup-garou (werewolf) named Prince. This story will be a little more focused on the romance, simply because I'm a mad scientist that wants to experiment and see exactly how well I can write out the dynamics between two people who are human at the core. Since this is part of the Reaper universe with Bones and Howl, we will see old characters as well as new characters, just to keep things interesting. This will not go up until Bones is finished and Howl is near not for awhile. I'm also thinking about making a new cover, not sure whether or not I should since I'm still looking for a photo that fits.

In regards to my works on Fanfiction, TAS and TCM will be taken down at the end of the month of April. I will not be posting them on a separate webpage or anything like that, they'll be just poof! gone forever, no rewrites or anything. Also, Practical Magick will be taken down as well as my collaborator has disappeared off the face of the planet and despite all the positive feedback, it won't continue, unless of course I feel otherwise and continue the story on my own terms. Push Me, Shove Me has been recently updated and hopefully I'll be able to finish it before the new school year begins.

And Along Came Cupid

Phew, it's a been a long while since I've posted here. Nothing new to report, though the new year is well underway and so is the second semester of school! So far being a double-major isn't so bad, but I figure once I get all the prereqs out of the way I'll be begging for someone to give me a quick and easy death, of that there's no doubt. Push Me, Shove Me was recently updated but I don't think I'm anywhere close to being finished; I'm still working out the details of the plot and how exactly I'm going to go about executing this elaborate scheme my brain came up with. *scratches head and sighs* So much to do, so little time. I reckon the fic won't be finished by the time Christmas rolls around again, with the way my schedule is working out. University is taking up virtually all of my time, but I'm carving out spots where I can write uninterrupted.

In FictionPress news, Bones is proving to be popular: I dunno why. As I mentioned earlier: Bones is not necessarily the Prequel or Sequel to Howl but more or less a companion. I'm working on other books in the 'series' so to speak; if most of you haven't figured it out, the books are divided geographically more than chronologically, events will overlap, characters will cross paths in one way or another. Much like George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire. Two others I've got planned are Crave and Teeth, whilst I'm working on another possible original and another fanfic. The latter is a crossover between two favorite anime of mine, but the details are slowly coming together. Again, I'm a double-major, university is hectic and the pace only picks up from here. My goal is to finish Push Me, Shove Me before the start of the 2015-2016 school year in the fall, but it's likely it won't happen. Bones, is also nowhere close to being finished and neither is Howl, but they're both getting there.

In more FanFiction news, I've been considering deleting The Artificial Sun and its sequel. In my opinion the both of them pale to the originals that I'd been planning on writing for some time and two of which that are now posted (Howl and Bones, and later to come Crave and Teeth). These originals explore the Reaper world in greater detail and don't take as much nutty creative licenses as I did with the fanfiction. With TAS I wrote willy nilly, wherever my imagination took me despite having an endgame in mind. The logic and rules of this universe is more carefully thought out and just better in my opinion. Well, enough of my rambling.
