After far too much time away from posting, I’m ready to begin putting my work out there again. The last few years have been long and tough. I’ve experienced many changes in my life, and my lack of internet access at home meant I practically had to abandon most of my pages. Some were by choice. Leaving fanfiction.net was the best thing I could do for my mental health at the time, and this is a decision I’m continuing to make as long as the admins remain silent on key problems in the community. deviantArt still lacks the features long form writers need, so I’ve decided to resume posting here on my WordPress site. I also have an AO3 account, which I will begin posting to as well.
So, what does my backlog include? Well, I never really stopped writing despite being away so a little bit of everything, including work for other fandoms. I stopped posting here in 2017, but in 2018 I attempted another year of 1 million words. I achieved this goal again, so there is plenty for me to post from that. I’m working on getting all of this together, which is why there will still be some delays. I just had some time to myself and figured I would put myself out there again. I know I’m building from nothing, that I won’t get the views here that I would on even some smaller fanfic hosting sites, but it’s better that way. I want to focus on the content, not the nonsense, and really get back to what I love. It’ll be slow going, but something is better than nothing. I’m ready to be back.
When I left the Arthur fandom earlier this year, it felt like I was breaking up with my best friend. Now that I’ve gotten over it, I want to reflect on that time and where I’m going from here.

I will be updating as many pieces as I can on ff.net this afternoon. I’m putting this here because I really need to drum up support on my pieces. No one is reviewing or commenting and yeah, it is a bit if a numbers game right now. Travis, as per always, has new pieces and instant reviews from his puppets. It’s complete and total BS that none of us get the same attention. So maybe I need to do some promoting and see what happens.

Tl;dr: I’ll be updating later so get ready, and please support your fellow ff.net writers.
Because doing a million words in a year just isn’t enough for me, I’m going to take on a second challenge to get me through these summer months. What is it? Well, I’m going to write 100 one-shots, and I’d love for you all to join me.

I have work to do today, thankfully, but in order to ration the pages of said work, I’m going to work on a little entry for you guys here on this semi-lovely Friday (weather is sketchy and Prince is dead. What a lovely day). So, I want to give a little preview of what I plan to do on ff.net now that I’ve returned. I’m also adding a preview for my upcoming WordPress articles.
But I just decided against it. I’m finally catching up on sleep not that my granny isn’t staying with us, but I’m still so tired. Also WordPress and my computer aren’t getting along. But I’ll probably be back on this weekend. We’ll probably be going somewhere with internet, be that the hospital where my grandma is or her house. I don’t know how much longer she has guys, but honestly, I hope her time comes soon. No one deserves this kind of pain.
There are some new writers in the Arthur fandom on ff.net. Here are links to their stories:
