Author has written 3 stories for Manga, and General.
Been a while.
Final update here--just to let everyone know that I've retaken For Love of Evil, which has been renamed and will feature a much updated story. The good things will be kept, the bad gotten rid of, and the characters grounded to more stable and unique personality sets. When the story was started in 2003, I was very much an anime fan, and the range of emotions shown is about what you'd find in your average Yu-Gi-Oh/Pokemon episode. 10 years later, I'm looking over my old notes and going, this story has potential. If it could focus, and lean away from the cliches it relies heavily on. So do know that it will be redone. If I do manage it, I'll probably resubmit it as a brand-new story. A lot of it will be changed, but its heart will remain.
As for DI, it's still in the back of my mind. I've worked out any number of lists of plot issues, character problems and so forth to address, as well as new scenes to add and old scenes to remove. That one will be my longest project, for when I have the most time. As of now, I don't have much, but if I can get For Love of Evil off the ground, I might be able to veer that way. Once the rewrite starts in earnest, the stories will be removed from here.
To keep updated on any progress, previews, notes, character sketches and anything else having to do with my writing, new and old, check out my tertiary Tumblr, Xandra's Notebook. Updates will be posted as I churn them out. You can search tags for any notes, sketches or updates from a particular series and its rewrite progress. You can also find me on y!gallery, and on my regular Tumblr.
Wow. It's been a while since I've been back here; I'm sort of wondering why I came. A nasty anonymous review (which I'm pretty sure was just trolling) brought me back to check the place out. The truth is, I don't really write anymore. I hope someday to take some of the stories off of this page, such as For Love of Evil and Dark Illustrations, polish them up from their almost 9-year-old state, and make them suitable for actual reading. Until I find the time and energy, however, they will just have to stay how they are. This site has changed a lot since the last time I was here. I don't think I'll be frequenting it much in the future.
For anyone interested in following my rare writing and artwork, I'm on y!gallery. (A yaoi site, and adult-only.) You can look me up there if you're really dying for updates. ; Sorry for the let-down. I just don't like this place anymore, and a lot of my most beloved work is old and in need of polishing. Maybe someday I'll have the energy to get them cleaned up and in book form. Until then...here they are, in their original forms. Not edited, written between 2003 and 2007.
To those who like to leave nasty remarks critiquing my work, please, save your typing. ; Everything you find hear is outdated by several good years, and will probably never be touched again--at least, not on this site. So if you don't like it, feel free to move on. If you did...I'm very glad.
Thank you all for reading my work, no matter how old and unrefined it is. It kept little-Xandra alive 9 years ago, to be able to log onto this site and see that people enjoyed the only thing that gave her peace. I thank you very much.
