I am so sorry for the long update! I have been so busy lately and haven't been able to write very quickly. Hopefully I will have the next chapter out soon for you all. Thank you so much for all of your patience. Though...it's not like you really have a choice...D:

*Edit 17/05/2014

I'm treating myself to the first one or (possibly) two chapter(s) of a new story. I've been working on Handmaiden for a year, and while it will DEFINITELY remain my priority, I do have another strong idea that wants to be written. The synopsis is below, but the first chapter could take a while. I don't know when I'll put it down on paper. There are still details that I need to sort out.

The Lotus and the Loon - Romance/Fantasy - Rated M

Quiet, apathetic Eden is trained as a Loon. She's the lurker, the lookout, the one who watches from the shadows and learns. Aid and evade is all she knows. Her partner, Roselle, is the Lotus and the temptress. Her job is to seduce the king. Too bad that once the king starts chasing the Loon, Eden's role in their high-stakes mission goes from a gamble... to just plain scrambled.

1. ONE OF YOUR SCARS, HOW DID YOU GET IT?

My favorite scar is a long, white-pink gash on my leg that I got from playing manhunt at my friend's house. I was running through the woods at night (being chased so I was hoofing it) and I hit a jagged piece of metal sticking up from the ground. This was in the middle of a forest and I just HAPPENED to hit it. Bad luck, but it's a cool scar.

2. WHAT IS ON THE WALLS IN YOUR ROOM?

All my fan art from Anime North.

3. DO YOU SNORE, GRIND YOUR TEETH, OR TALK IN YOUR SLEEP?

I don't do any of that, and I know I don't because those few times I HAVE tried to talk in my sleep I can feel it through my dream and the vibration in my throat from the words literally wakes me up. My boyfriend gnashes his teeth though, pretty hard too. Sometimes I worry.

4. WHAT TYPE OF MUSIC DO YOU LISTEN TO?

Kpop is my absolute favorite, but I like anything I can draw inspiration from for my writing.

5. DO YOU KNOW WHAT TIME YOU WERE BORN?

7:00 PM

6. WHAT DO YOU WANT MORE THAN ANYTHING RIGHT NOW?

Finish my books.

7. WHO/WHAT DO YOU MISS?

My best friend who lives in Ottawa :(

8. WHAT IS YOUR MOST PRIZED POSSESSION(S)?

I don't really get attached to material stuff...I guess it would be my laptop. It's got my writing on it. Also my boyfriend bought it for me so it's special.

9. HOW TALL ARE YOU?

5'3

10. DO YOU GET CLAUSTROPHOBIC?

If my arms are trapped.

11. DO YOU GET SCARED IN THE DARK?

I used to. I don't anymore, and it's actually funny how that came around. I used to be somewhat religious. I believed in God, in spirits, ghosts etc. The thought of those is what scared me at night. Then I watched this documentary called Zeitgeist (not sure if it's spelled right) that basically disproved religion, and the facts were so sound and sensible that from that moment on I stopped believing in any religion -- which meant that I also stopped believing in ghosts, basically. This may sound weird, but I'm actually a happier person for it.

12. THE LAST PERSON TO MAKE YOU CRY?

My sister.

13. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE PERFUME FOR A GIRL?

...They all smell the same. I smelled one that was of Lilacs once, and that one was AMAZING.

I don't have a preference. My first two boyfriends had dark hair/eyes and my boyfriend now has like, bronze hair and blue eyes.

15. WHERE CAN YOU SEE YOURSELF BEING PROPOSED TO?

This is a weird question that I have no idea how anyone answers. Chances are that unless you TELL your significant other where you want to be proposed to, there's no way to answer this. O_o And what if you haven't even met the person yet? Then how do you answer it? I don't get it.

16. COFFEE OR ENERGY DRINK?

Pepperoni.

18. IF YOU CAN EAT ANYTHING RIGHT NOW, WHAT WOULD IT BE?

25. WOULD YOU FALL IN LOVE KNOWING THAT THE PERSON IS LEAVING?

I'm not sure you can help falling in love.

Stick up for them. Also, tell the the truth -- always.

27. SAY A NUMBER FROM ONE TO A HUNDRED:

8

28. BLONDS OR BRUNETTES?

Brunettes I guess, but, I'M brunette so I guess I'm biased.

29. WHAT IS THE ONE NUMBER YOU CALL MOST OFTEN?

My boyfriend's

30. WHAT ANNOYS YOU MOST?

People who cut you off when you're talking. I don't even talk that much so it's extra annoying that when I do try to speak, certain people will butt in. Hate that.

31. HAVE YOU BEEN OUT OF THE USA?

Well... I live in Canada.

32. YOUR WEAKNESSES?

I'm selfish with my time. I'll only give it to those who have managed to get close to me. That's not an easy thing to do.
