I now have a blog! ... which didn't work out so well. I'm trying again, with tumblr and a less formal approach this time, and I'm already doing much better. It helps that my first post wasn't a cry for help from depression... http:/// . I've already got four different story ideas written out - technically six, but 3 are grouped together. One isn't so much a story idea as a short story...which I will be posting here on in a few minutes.
Yes, I am writing. No, I will never abandon my stories. Yes, I write slowly. Yes, this still stands even now through all of 2015, even though I haven't actually been able to really write anything. I do realize that I am incredibly slow when updating. Feel free to 'threaten' me to continue; it's actually good inspiration, knowing you want me to continue. Still, I have not give up ANY of my stories. I actually have several ideas plan, but then I agonize on details and I can never actually write anything. I keep imagining someone's reactions, and not being able to think of it. All of my thoughts revolve around this one, singular incident whenever I even attempt to pursue writing any further.
My muse has been in a coma for the last...2 years? It jerks spasmodically sometimes, letting me write for several moments. Right now its twitching, letting me attempt to write. Unfortunately, it's focused it's dreaming mind on several completely new stories...but I think it will actually help me finish them. So...you might be able to expect some Assassin's Creed fics soon. Hooray! ... and now, 3 months later, I finally have a chapter I want to publish! I've also got 10,000 words written for another story, but I want to wait until I have more and I'm worried I messed up Altair's characterization.
I love time travel stories, no matter what fandom or when it is. If you have a well-written time-travel story, then I will read it. PM me, please. I've gone through with this promise before, and I will again. Here's a chance to shamelessly advertise your own story!
Now for the obligatory list of things to post to my profile (which I have cleaned up and erased over 3 quarters of):
“I have no preference. I hate everyone equally.”—Avatar
"If you can’t beat them, join them. If you can’t join them, bribe them. If you can’t bribe them, blackmail them."
"I’m impressed, I’ve never met such a small mind inside such a big head before."
"A computer once beat me at chess, but it was no match for me at kick boxing!"
"I feel so miserable without you, it’s almost like having you here."
"Always forgive your enemies, but never forget their names."
"Money can’t buy you happiness, but it does bring you a more pleasant form of misery."
"Letting go doesn’t mean giving up, but rather accepting that there are things that cannot be."
"It is impossible to discourage the true writers--they don't give a damn about what you think; they're just going to write."
And if you look closely to your left, you can see my sanity zooming away. Wave goodbye! (Unknown

Anyone can become angry - that is easy. But to be angry with the right person, to the right degree, at the right time, for the right purpose, and in the right way - this is not easy. (Aristotle)
Minerva raised a single eyebrow at him, "Do you know how much alcohol I've confiscated from Gryffindors? I haven't had to purchase any on my own since I became their Head of House.
"You gave the headmaster of Hogwarts socks for Christmas?" Snape looked at Harry as though he had lost his senses.
"It's either exactly what he wanted or a wonderful joke," Harry defended himself and related his tale about the Mirror of Erised in his first year.
"It's not like the world will end tomorrow if we don't figure it all out today."
In retrospect, he was right. The world ended two days later.
"He would, of course, be infuriatingly inquisitive as to where you find these things."
"He can be as inquisitive as he likes. I know how to be infuriatingly reticent, so I expect we’d come out even."

You don't have to carry the weight of the world on your shoulders all the time, you know.
It's not like that, It's more like a few continents, and only on weekdays, and it's more in the upper back region…
I can imagine your chiropractor bills.
I carry those around on the weekends
