Wow. Seriously, wow. I never expected this kind of reaction to Unwanted (my newest Teen Titans One-shot) but you have no idea how thankful I am. It's such a great feeling...waking up to find your inbox flooded with reviews ^_^

30th September, 2005. 9:30 pm. Even a Rose
I'm really excited about my new Lily/James fic, Even a Rose. I've only got the prologue and most of the first chapter finished, and I do want to wait until I have a good portion of the fic written before I start posting. That will take a lot of pressure off updating within a reasonable amount of time, and just generally make my life easier, seeing as how Junior year is out to get me. I also want to wait until I've finished In Their Eyes, mainly because it's just too much trouble having two stories going at once. I had to cope with Wishful Thinking and The Boy Next Door all last year...and it just really complicates things.
But I am really liking Even a Rose so far. I don't think it's amazing by any means, far from it. I'm just...really proud of it so far, I'm happy with the direction it seems to be taking.
And I have stumbled upon an AMAZING fic. For anyone who hasn't read it, I highly recommend checking out What Dreams May Come by Missers. It's not a JPLE, but it is definately one of the best fics out there, in my opinion. Unless you're totally opposed to AU or theoretical fics...then you shouldn't read it.

(So sorry to those of you who read this journal as well as my other one, I'm afraid this may be monumentally redundant.)
Many thanks to alice-joane-black from fanfiction.net for translating my Teen Titan's fic "Mostly Normal" into Spanish! Hehe, I'm so excited...you have no idea. This is the first fic I've had translated, it makes me feel really very special.
For any jott readers out there, the next chapter of "In Their Eyes" is coming along. I've still only written a bit...but I intend to have it done within the next week or two. And as for any new JPLE fics...well, I have started writing "Even a Rose". I have the prologue done and I've started the first chapter, but I don't really want to post another story until I've finished with my XME one. It was hard enough having two stories going last year...having them going my junior year would be suicide.

I know it's been awhile (one month and three days, to be exact), but I have finally posted chapter 2 of In Their Eyes. Nevermind the fact that I really should've been working on my AP US reading for the week rather than updating, but I feel awful not writing. The chapter is really short, but I hope it appeases you all for awhile. I do have the beginning of chapter 3 started, I swear! But between homework and coaching MS soccer, it may take awhile to get up.

I have all these ideas bouncing around my head, mostly of the Robin/Starfire one shot variety...but I'm having difficulty actually getting anything on paper at the moment. I've written little bits for probably three different potential one shots, but I haven't been able to really continue with one. I finally saw "Apprentice pt II" last night...I think I've seen part of it before but never the whole thing. *squeals* I almost cried, as sad as that is. Seriously, when Star was telling Robin that she didn't want to live in a world where they weren't friends and if he was truly evil to basically go ahead and kill her...and then he lowers his weapon and is like "Starfire, no," *eep* really I wanted to cry. Warm fuzzies all around! I really enjoyed that episode ^_^
I'm having another problem with In Their Eyes. I started that story mainly because I wasn't ready to end The Boy Next Door and I didn't want to risk ruining BND. The story will probably only be a few chapters...since I mainly just wanted to follow up on what happened with Jean and Scott's relationship. I'm feeling guilty though, because I promised all my Lily/James readers that I'd start working on the new JPLE story once I'd finished BND...I never expected to work on a "sequel". *sigh* And now I've got an idea for a longer Teen Titans fic but I don't want to start another fic while I have one going since BND and Wishful Thinking clashed all the time last year. I honestly don't know how some of these other authors do that...how they can have 5 stories running at once...that's just not possible with me. I don't have enough time. >.<

I have FINALLY finished my Lily and James oneshot, Draught of Dreams
. This story has been hanging over my head, haunting
me, all summer. It started out as what I thought was a good idea, and ended up being a major pain....I had such issues trying to finish it, and I honestly hate the ending. I think under normal circumstances I could've done much better, but this particular story seemed determined to drive me insane. Needless to say, I'm glad I've finished it, and though I'm not as happy as I would like to be with the end product, it's still one of my babies, and I'm proud of it. So, if your a JPLE fan, please check it out ^_^

So, for my first official posting in my fanfic LJ I'm proud to say that I've finally updated the first chapter of "In Their Eyes" - the sequel to "The Boy Next Door". For any of you who haven't read my stories before, I highly recommend reading BND first, seeing as how you probably won't understand any of ITE. However there probably won't be many more updates for awhile, seeing as how I'm working as a counselor at a Summer Camp and don't have much free time. >.<

I've decided to change the focus of this journal (seeing as how after using it for a couple of days I gave up and decided just to bother my friends and post about X-men and fanfic on my real one). From now on this journal is going to be used as a fanfiction journal. I'll be posting information about my current fanfics as well as random information on the stories I love to read. And, of course, I'll continue spazzing over my current obsessions...meaning plenty of X-men and Teen Titans posts. At least...this is all what I intend to do, there's not guarantee that any of that will actually happen >.

SOLJA sent me an Anime Music Video they'd found to the song "Roll To Me" - Del Amitri, featuring Jean and Scott from X-men Evolution. You have no idea how much that brought my day up ^_^ It's got to be one of the coolest things I've ever seen~ My favorite couple and favorite song all rolled into one ^_^
On another happy note, people seem to be enjoying "The Boy Next Door" which is good...I was afraid my latest chapter would lose a lot of people, but they seem to have liked it ^_^ I probably shouldn't have told SOLJA though that I wrote half of it in one afternoon >.< Not a smart move on my part 'cause now they're feeling cheated...but hey, at least it helped me to get over my writer's block, right?
