It's been a while! I have to apologize if I haven't been responsive to your posts. See for months I was watching an extremely busy LJ comm that was filling up 95% of the bandwidth on my Friends page. Often I was so overwhelmed by it that I just didn't even go to LJ. So now that I've stopped watching that comm, I can visit my Friends page again, at least in theory.

Today I had to login to FFnet to moderate some comments (I didn't even know people could put comments on fics, or that I could moderate them, is this new?) and found a message someone sent me from last October! Gah, it reminded me that I have not written fiction in quite a while, since Heir to Rainsworth. I tell you, ever since a certain Pandora Hearts character died last year, the manga has become so darn serious, somehow, that I can't seem to rev up my usual level of crackery. That and I have been doing way too much volunteer work IRL to have much time for writing of any kind.

Although I recently was given a gift from the heavens…a few hours to myself to do absolutely nothing. And in that space of time a revelation came to me that should enable me to finally move forward on my second original fic novel. I had thought it finished, but was not getting the glowing satisfaction from reviewers that I wanted. Now I know everyone says "write for yourself" but I have higher ambitions than that. This thing is going to sparkle and sing when I get done with it. People will read it and seek a higher level of life satisfaction because of it! Ok, maybe not, but hey, I like to make up stuff, that's why I'm a fiction writer.

I recently read all twenty volumes of Angel Sanctuary and it was pretty great, but I don't feel like writing about it much. I'm currently rereading 07-Ghost and it is even better than I remembered. . I'm also reading a lot of Buddhist thought, John O'Donohue books, and listening to Joseph Campbell talks. All very good for this twisted, sad soul of mine.

No need to apologize! ^-^

I understand if it's hard to work on the crack with all the seriousness in PH... maybe you could try writing a serious one? XD

I'm glad you had a revelation :D. I'm looking forward to it!

I only read a few chaps of AS, and it wasn't my kind of manga. Re-reading manga is always good, because it's easy to forget many things!

I'll right a serious one if just the idea comes my way and I have some time to sit down and do it. If you have some ideas, do let me know!

I'm terrible at writing fanfiction, and so I doubt I have any good ideas ^-^;. I think your ideas are millions of times better :D.
