Well, since it's been a really long time, I figured I should update my profile. I don't really want to say very much about myself, though -- this is really just to let y'all know how the stories are coming along.

Scrapbook of Memories in Poem Form
I don't know if I'll ever be done with this one, really. Like the title says, these are my memories, my experiences. Well, most of 'em, anyways.

Tales of Vatar'noch
All three of these are on hiatus. I'm sorry, but the spring is dry these days. I didn't really have a plan when I started, and I don't know what's coming next or when I'll have time to sit down and decide that this, this, and this are going to happen in this order.

Tales of Kitch'noch
Also on hiatus. But there really wasn't anything beyond that first story anyhow, so don't hold your breath.

Complete for now. I may come up with something new or edit the existing poems, but for now it's done.

The End of All Things
I'm going to re-do this, I promise. Look for changes sometime during the summer, 'cause right now I have no time.

An Accidental Crusade
Title subject to change. This is my as-yet-unfinished attempt at National Novel Writing Month of 2006. It's pretty cool, but I need to finish it and then have about three different people look at it before I'm ready to post. If I do post, it'll only be for a while, 'cause I figure if it's good enough to post then it's good enough to ship to a publisher.
The Search, Part Ten
Where, you ask, do the first nine parts come in? I'll tell you: on my FanFiction.Net account. That's 'cause this last part is going to be the culmination of a ten-part story, the first nine segments of which span nine different continuums. This and its other nine pieces will probably go up before An Accidental Crusade.

A comment on my updating habits: I do not write the stories. The stories write me. I am subject to their wills and whims, and they are quite the capricious characters. However, one of my New Year's Resolutions was to not post until the story is complete, so as to hopefully lessen the number of reviews saying, "UPDATE, DAMMIT!" Be that as it may, reviews and constructive criticism are always appreciated.

Healing Hands by Solemn Coyote reviews
An investigation into whether immortality and compassion are mutually exclusive. Also an exorcism of sorts. That title has been fluttering around the dusty corners of my brain for far too long.

The Only God on the Windowsill by Solemn Coyote reviews
There are stranger things than the intersection between man and myth. Fiction is one of them. This is a story - short, but not brief - about a lost girl, a homeless trickster God, and the boundary between reality and fantasy.

The Compass Points: South by Avalbane reviews
In a world threaded together by the ancient magics of the mage-light, the four clans have long resorted to piracy against the magic-inept. Through ancient alliances, four Great Lighthouses stand -representing the undying clash of the four compass points.
