HI! *waves enthusiastically*

I am, in fact, not dead. Grad school is, however, kicking my ass. (I have heard it is considered a fandom in itself and that people occasionally disappear into it like the Bermuda Triangle or the Mists of Avalon, so maybe you've heard of its havoc before?) So, YES, I am still working on the next installment of the ESU, it is far from dead! And, YES, I am also slowly working through the backlog of awesome comments from all you lovely people. I apologize for not getting to them sooner. This journal will shortly return to active status, if only to post one-offs I've written over the past year while I and trusty beta/cheerleader types continue to toil over the ESU. It will probably also help that I intend to do [livejournal.com profile] mini_nanowrimo again, so words will happen come hell or high unicorns. ;)

Thanks so much for sticking around (or for joining up) despite my long absence! Hope to see you all more and soon!

*hugs all around*
~EO

P.S. If you haven't already checked out the new art and new podfic/audiobook versions of some of the most popular ESU installments, you should check out the ESU Index Page and let those lovely folks know you enjoyed their work. I'm really quite impressed. :-D

Yes, my life is completely crazy right now, but you know what? Writing helps keep me sane, so I've officially signed up for NaNoWriMo this month as well as pledging a baseline daily number of 500 words to [livejournal.com profile] mini_nanowrimo. I'll hopefully be working on both original and fan fiction. This page will update as needed. Wish me luck! (And if you're doing NaNo too, add me as a writing buddy - eboniorchid!)

Dear Kind and Generous Readers,

As summer has finally arrived in my neck of the woods, I find myself somewhat freer to continue my fannish creative pursuits, but, alas, many of my previous betas are rather busy. Might any of you articulate, angst-loving souls be willing to assist? The only bribes I might be able to offer are insider info about the Evil!Sammy Universe, my own skills as a beta, or, possibly, some custom graphics, if you like. Drop me a comment with your email addy, if interested. Comments are screened to protect pervs and innocents alike!

Thank you in advance,
~EO

Well, folks, it looks like I'll be joining the mass of SPN/J2 fics posting at the start of the bigbang season. So keep your eyes peeled. "Eager" from my Evil!Sammy Universe should be up later today or tomorrow. XD

EVIL!SAMMY: For those of you waiting on the next installment of the ESU, it had an arduous process in October (being eaten by Word at least twice and poked by a number of lovely betas), but I'm hoping to release it in the next two weeks.

NANOWRIMO: Real life concerns mean that I'm not doing it this year, but I am doing [livejournal.com profile] mini_nanowrimo where I've committed to 100 words per day, though I'm aiming for 500 words per day. Keep your eyes on this spot if you'd like to see my progress. :)

SWEET CHARITY: Sweet Charity, a fandom-based charity that allows creative fans to sell their fandom wares in the name of a good cause, is up and running again. This year's cause is RAINN, an anti-sexual assault organization. I won't be selling my wares this round because I'm still working on requests from last round. *hides* There are a number of other amazing authors putting themselves out there for charity, though, so you should absolutely go check them out. Bidding starts Sunday!

FANMIX: [livejournal.com profile] divalucia put together an awesomely intriguing Evil!Sam/Dean Fanmix, "The Day the World Went Away", partly inspired by my Evil!Sammy Universe. So, if you'd like to try some interesting tracks with a mix of conflicted themes, much like the 'verse itself, then you should definitely check it out.

FYI: I totally don't mind derivative works of my (obviously) derivative works. So, if something I wrote gets your creative juices flowing, go for it. If you could, though, let me know what you're working on and link back to the original when you post. That would be awesome. Thanks. :-)

I'm doing this a little differently than some of my fic comrades. Although most of the fics that birthed these snippets have various titles, universes, and contexts, I'm posting them without any of their specifics. You may speculate at will (in fact, I encourage it), but I won't be directly answering any "what is this from" questions for these. I will say, though, that while some of these are known to be in-progress, others I may have never mentioned before. If you plan to speculate anyway, note that the order has nothing to do with anything, so focus only on the content. Also? I'd say that it's difficult to take anything at face value when it's obviously out of context. And, as always, I reserve the right to modify or destroy these passages as I continue to work on these fics. Now then, go ponder the randomness within. *grins evilly*

THANK YOU! Thank you to every awesome person who has ever read my fics and most especially to those of you who comment with so many complimentary, encouraging, supportive words. I've always loved writing, even when it was only for me, but it really makes me giddy when other people can enjoy my writing too. So, thank you so much for just being around and for reading my work. And don't worry, you'll have plenty more of my fics to read soon!

Most of my fics only exist because of my participation in [livejournal.com profile] mini_nanowrimo and NaNoWriMo 2006. This experience not only helped me grow as a writer, but actually helped me think of myself more as a writer. A month ago, I would never have said I was a fanfic writer, but now I think maybe I am. This was my first NaNo and my first big writing challenge. I honestly didn't think I could do it, but I did. Any of you who have thought about doing NaNo, but never signed up, please give yourself a chance to try it next year! Go sign up to get a reminder email in October.

NaNoWriMo is the most beautiful torture and I'm addicted to its creative pleasure-pain!
