Fics that I've yet to actually finish:
Dinner Party: Probably permanent hiatus...I may try to rewrite it? Maybe?? I don't know???
Q&A with the Bohemians!: Not entirely certain what happened to that. I'll probably add more if I get any more comments/questions.
Mystery Case Files: Fate's Carnival: I promise I'll write another chapter...eventually. Also finish the Ravenhearst quintet. And then Dire Grove. And maybe a Madame Fate prequel...
I sometimes talk to myself, but at least I'm good company!
