I've gotten a lot of messages in the last month or so...I am going to finish this story and the series, but I've been distracted by another fandom and don't have a lot of time to write currently. The good news is, my new obsession is starting to fizzle out, and thoughts and ideas for VM are starting to come to me again. Don't lose hope...5/24/2011 #1 Report
Glad to see that you don't forget us :)
Personally I do not lose hope!

It's great to hear that ideas for the story are starting to come to you again. It's also great to hear that you plan to finish the story/series. You have done a wonderful job with the series and you are a talented and gifted writer. I can't wait for when you will update your latest Veronica Mars fic but at the same time I'm patiently waiting for you to have the desire to do so lol5/25/2011 #3 Report
I'm so excited! I haven't been in a VMars mood lately but for the past two days I've been reading and re-reading a lot of fics. Can't wait to see where you're going to go with the series15/25/2011 #4 Report
ouch, I saw you updated your smallville story again, and that we didn't have seen you since your little message 3 weeks ago, that hurt!!
Yeah I'm trying to make you feel guilty, I know it's bad but I don't care... ;p6/7/2011 #5 Report
Ok, I am really trying to be patient, but I really really really miss this fic. No one writes Veronica and Logan better than you do. Please, please update it soon. I know you are caught up in another fanfic but I am begging you to come back to this one very soon.6/13/2011 #6 Report
Yeah, I am writing this just to let you know that I also miss this and hope you will get some inspiration back soon. STH was one of the first (if not the first) proper VM fics I read and I was hooked pretty fast. I am still so hooked that I sometimes have trouble with other fics that would have been truly great, but that I can't always appreciate fully if they clash too much with the truth universe. For me your universe is the one, true universe and almost everything else feels more or less off or wrong.
So, when you feel like it again, you know I (and many, many others) are here just waiting for a chance to yet again appreciate your effort and talent. :-)
I wish you happy writing!6/17/2011 #7 Report
I always think you can tell a certain amount about an author from their stories, themes, ways of describing things, bits of life experience that are personal that creep into multiple characters or multiple stories. Something you should know about me is that demanding something from me (ie an update) by yelling and cussing at me will not get you want you want. In fact, it will get you the opposite of what you want. People who demand an update when I've never seen or don't recall reviews from your user name? Even more pointless. You're getting my story, my time, my imagination, my work for free. I don't owe you. To be clear, I enjoy most reviews, even the critical ones, I laugh at the funny ones, and feel all aw-shucks over the effusive ones, but I don't write the story for anyone by myself. I like sharing it with you and feel like I've had conversations with several of you over the years (yeah- to be clear this has been YEARS in progress now) I've been writing the series. This story is not the only thing in my life I've had to give up in recent months due to my RL. Sleep is required, so are laundry and dishes on occasion. Writing is a hobby and my other hobbies have also gotten put on hold. The other story, in another fandom, is easier, and less consuming. Maybe you don't like it, bur frankly I got over people no liking everything I do a long time ago. Bonus of growing up in a small town. You can let other people's expectations control who you are, or flip them the bird and be you. Plus as a personal bonus, I've now taught myself how to write in another style fairly well. I plan to update this series, I will finish the story/series, but demands that are aggressive instead of teasing or funny do not motivate me.
You don't love that story and want me to write more in this one...fair enough. But there are ways to encourage me, and there are ways to make me think I'd rather do anything but write for this series. But I'm just contrary like that. My brother claims I'm a classic "against" personality, but I think I only have instinctive resistance to people who demand things from me without either A) having my best interest at heart or B) without feeling like they have to reciprocate in any way in our relationship. Or frankly want something from me I don't want to give or don't want for myself. But alas, I do write it for myself, and I will write it again when the inspiration and time fairy both visit me at the same time. For the people who have sent all the other reviews and encouragement recently, I keep my promises. I will finish, and I'm sorry if the wait is not fun.6/21/2011 #8 Report
Hey, I don't know if my comment was one of the ones who upset you, but if it is I'm sorry I didn't mean it to be anything but a little joke, if you take it like an attack against you then i'm truly sorry6/23/2011 #9 Report
No, not you. They were two comments from people I haven't corresponded with before...I don;t know if they'd even reviewed before. Asking me to update is fully acceptable, telling me I'm...whatever...a bad person for not updating is a bit much. Cussing at me while telling me that I need to update? Not making me happy. But just asking or trying to encourage me doesn't do any damage.6/23/2011 #10 Report
I'll just add my wish/hope for an update! I just found VM the show in the last two months, and then found the whole genre of FF after that, so I found your stories well after the first two Truth stories were written, and into the third so I didn't review as I read each chapter because I was happily reading along each chapter. However, I am a committed reviewer to stories I follow in development, and am very much looking forward to seeing where you take season 2 (Paris?!?!) and your future fic. I loved the stories so much I read them, and then I just re-read them again in the last two weeks. They are really engaging. Thanks for writing!7/1/2011 #11 Report
I don't know how many people look at this forum or are still waiting for the story...but I thought I'd let anyone who is know that I wrote more for the playing hide and seek story last weekend.
Thanks to everyone who's messaged and encouraged me to continue (well all but the one who cussed at me), the simple truth is the more I think about the story the more likely I am to have ideas for it, and when I have I ideas I have to write them down to get them out of my head...which of course means more story gets written.8/3/2011 #12 Report
Oh I hope this means an update will happen some time in the near future? great to hear that ideas have been coming to you and you been able to write some on the Hidden truths story. Thanks for letting us know8/4/2011 #13 Report
I am happy you are writing this story again. I have really missed it. No one writes Veronica and Logan better than you (maybe not even Rob Thomas) :-). I will be very happy to see a new chapter up when it is ready. Happy writing.8/7/2011 #14 Report
Oh, I'm so excited that you're going to be updating this story!! I can't wait for the next chapter!8/11/2011 #15 Report
Thanks, this week so far has not been conducive for writing, but I have hopes for next week...for now it's just gathering ideas and focusing on the story again.8/11/2011 #16 Report
OK, good news is I'm definitely writing...bad news is it's random stuff for the future and not the actual chapter I need to be writing. But anything is good at this point. I just wrote a fun Mac-Veronica conversation about a pivotal moment coming up for Mac. And a little bit about V and Leanne.
Here's a little teaser, this starts up mid conversation...
V: But you and John did, I mean you... (grimaces and affects a valley girl accent) totally, like, did it, right?
Mac: Totally! (Mac mimic's Veronica's accent.)
V: So what's the big deal, yo?
Mac: Thanks for the support.
V: I'm trying mac. This girl stuff is just so...
Mac: OK, so you've had sex. From the apperance of things, a lot of sex.
V: (V frowns, looking offended.) Hey.
Mac: How is that an insult?
V: I'm not sure.
Mac: Then why are you protesting?
V: I'm not sure, just seems like I should.8/15/2011 #17 Report
Yay! This is funny. Glad you have found some inspiration again. Sonner or later it will come to you in larger chunks and you will get that chapter out. Until then, I m happy to hear of any progress you make. And teasers are always very appreciated. :-)
Happy writing!8/17/2011 #18 Report
Yeah, yeah, yeah!! What a great little snippet of a conversation, it just whetted my appetite for more "truth"!! So excited to read the full conversation, and everything else that goes with it. Happy writing and know we're rooting you on spirit!8/17/2011 #19 Report
How happy I was this afternoon when I came back and saw all this new messages and this amazing teaser, even if it's not a chapter, it's so great to see that you're still writing! It just give me more hope that we will see a chapter soon!8/18/2011 #20 Report
I just finished re-reading this series for the twentieth or thirtieth time [or so] and am soooooo happy to hear that there is still on-going progress. I just wanted to let you know that I am manifesting [sending you happy, positive, comforting, writing thoughts] about this series. Keep up the AMAZING work and I can't wait for the next chapter [but no pressure :) ].

Thanks, I like that. You're vibing with my hippy past...Time is still tight, but ideas are coming...the ying and yang.8/29/2011 #23 Report
Aww, I'm that story for some of you. I have fanfics that I have read over and over and over. And even though it still makes me sound vain (at least to myself) I have reread STH countless times (skipping the angst usually now) and still love it. I see problems with a few of the storylines, and always new grammar/spelling issues, but it is what I wanted the story to be.
Thanks for posting.8/30/2011 #25 Report
Lol, yep! Not vain at all though. That you re-read your fics actually makes me respect you more. That's one thing that drives me absolutely insane when I'm reading a book series: the author seems to always forget details from previous books. I'll probably end up copying the story to my laptop and betaing it the next time I read through it because its simply too good to leave the mistakes in (plus, I always seem to stumble and try to fix in my mind when I'm reading anyway. Yeah, I'm odd...)8/31/2011 #26 Report
I have totally done that- and am suddenly feeling my California-ness (totally!)
Don't copy it out of ff if you have your email set up here I'll send you the word version. (it's 50 chapters! you def do not want to do that. It has many of the mistakes fixed, but of course not all of them, and I don't think I have evne attempted to review for my capricious comma usage. Though I will blame that on California's school system also, and not my disinterest in learning grammar.8/31/2011 #27 Report
