Hello... No matter which one of my stories you are reading this on, it's been a while. A lot changed since I began writing here in 2019, and I would like to take a few minutes of your time to explain what's going on and what's in store for all my fanfics.
First, I would like to begin by thanking you all for following my stories throughout the last few years. Honestly, I never expected I would get even a tenth of the readers I have now, but apparently, my writing wasn't as shit as I thought even back then (Tho I disagree, it really was shit). I know I am not a good author, or at least not a reliable one. After all, I made you all wait for new chapters for god knows how long and haven't finished a single story yet. There were plenty of reasons for that, my laziness among them, but once again, more about it below.
So what happened? Why am I not updating?
When it comes to the past when I still had plenty of free time, I definitely posted here more, but still not enough considering how much time I had. So here I can easily admit I was often lazy or distracted by some other shit (Cough, Gaming Cough). However, laziness has little to do with the lack of updates since the beginning of 2022 (Okay, that's only partially true).
Back then, you could say it was a time to grow up for me. I finished my Uni, got a job, and most of my free time disappeared. At the same time, I also started working on my original story and learning some other stuff on the side, giving me even less time to do anything else. Of course, there were some other factors, but I won't bore you with them anymore. That's not why you are probably reading this, but still, to sum it up...
I want to become a writer and support myself with my writing alone (At least in the future). Fanfiction, while it had been nice, unfortunately, can't give me that unless I start offering you guys advanced chapters or some other stuff on . And that's not something I want to do. Charging people for Fanfiction is a grey area (if not downright illegal), and while I am happy that other fanfiction writers can make a living with this, I would rather not risk it when someone finally takes notice and bursts this bubble... Nonetheless, Fanfiction still taught me a lot about writing, and I will be forever grateful that all of you helped me along the road.
Now, does it mean the end of Fanfiction for me? No, at least not yet. Below, I will write a short, or not that short, notice about my four stories. There, I will explain exactly what will or won't happen.
1. "Forgotten" Quite an ironic title I chose, eh? The rewrite of my first-ever story... I would like to tell you that I will complete it one day, but I can't, at least not in the current form. You could say that I overplanned this story, and the amount of AU stuff at some point would overwhelm HP and PJO. That's why I decided just to take my notes and leave them so that one day, I can modify it completely and just make an original story out of it. So yeah, sorry, "Forgotten" is officially abandoned.
2. "For Myself" This story truly started my road as a writer, and I had so many plans for it, some of which I managed to write and publish. Unfortunately, I messed up a lot of stuff regarding this story. My inexperience created too many mistakes, and nothing bar a complete rewrite can fix them. Maybe if I still had the motivation towards this story, I would try, but GOT/ASOIAF and partially HP no longer really interests me. Still, before we completely forget about this story, I wouldn't be against writing an outline of what would happen next. Maybe for some of you, this would be a good farewell. Let me know what you want. So, like the story above, "For Myself" is now abandoned. Although, there is a very tiny chance I might continue it in the future.
3. "Road to Power" What can I say? I love this story, I love Logan and Laura, and I would love to write more about them. So what's the problem? Fucking MCU... Like, holy shit, how badly can you fuck up one of the best cinematic universes so that even I lost any desire to continue my story? I even tried to force it through, trying to forget about the current fuck ups in MCU, but man, is it hard when, with every movie and show, it's getting worse and worse. Anyway, so what now? Will I just abandon it? The answer is: I have no idea. For now, "Road to Power" is going on a Hiatus. I still have a few things to catch up on with MCU. Who knows, maybe my motivation for it will come back. And if not? Well, I will figure something out, as I really don't want to kill this story.
4. "Grimm's Evolution" The story that brought me where I am now and that gave me the motivation to start an original... RWBY had its ups and downs, often killing any desire I had to continue writing my story, but we somehow survived, if barely. So what now? Well, I want to finish this story, although I will need to change a lot of plot points that I wanted to write in the past (Not because I don't like them or due to canon events, but because if I wrote them all, we would be here for another few years if not more). With that decided, from now on, I will be updating with a fixed schedule. One chapter, posted on the 1st of each month. Hope that will be enough to make you all happy. This way, I will have a deadline that will force me to finish this story, even if it is hard at times.
And that's it when it comes to my fan fiction. I also plan to continue another fanfic (probably Road) after I finish Grimm, but we will see about that later. For now, I want to focus on my original book, and work and hopefully finish Grimm's Evolution.
In the past, I thought I would never abandon a story, but that was a fucking lie, eh? Life just doesn't work that way. I am sorry for disappointing you all, but I just can't force myself to continue some of the stuff I have written in the past. Quite frankly, it would be a waste of time. Both of mine and yours, as the writing would never reach the quality I want.
So that's it from me. If you want to chat, ask questions, or even scream at me for abandoning stories you like, I invite you to my Discord server. Our community is small, but the more, the merrier. Also, I doubt many of you want to hear it, but like I said, I am writing an original book. It is already over 200k words long, and for the first time in years, I have a schedule that I don't break. So, if you want to check it out while you wait for your favorite Fanfictions, please google "A Universe of Bloody Evolution" on RoyalRoad or you can try the link from my profile.
See ya all, and have a great day/night.
