So hey any lingering people on this journal! I was planning on spending much of the summer writing but then something happened. I got pregnant.

I am ecstatic to be pregnant and it was planned, however the sickness that sometimes comes from it was not. I spent two months feeling sick and sleeping. Needless to say I didn't get anything done. We will have to see what the future brings but I do plan to write again.

That said, I have seen some things about lj getting worse and worse. I'm going to have to look into this and I might be migrating to dreamwidth. If that happens I will certainly let you guys know and give you the link for my stuff over there.

This may become more journaly for a while I stead of just stories. Sorry about that for anyone still following me. ^^;

So, I already have 2 ideas for the next thing that I would like to write. Since the school year is done after one more day (pardon the author while she does a crazy victory dance) I will have more time to write. I think I am going to make a poll to see what you guys would rather read. Both pieces will be in the Of Flesh universe since I can't seem to stop writing that. So here are the choices:

Of Witches, Whispers, and Weddings: This piece will focus on the orginal pack and will star Siwon and Jessica. From the title I imagine that you will be able to guess the contents of the story. :) There will be several twists and quite a few guest characters although it will focus on them.

Of Regard and Repercussions: This will be the back story for the L/Sungjong/Sungyeol trio. It will start with L's addition to his pack and continue through their relationship. It might also end up moving into the future a bit to give a look at how everything settles. Sungjong is crazy and it is going to be a fun story to show how everything went down. :)

Let me know which you prefer and feel free to try and persuade me one way or the other. :)

I'm so excited! I'm almost finished writing Calescence and Chroma. I have about one more chapter and maybe an epolog to write yet and then the whole thing is off to my beta! I'm very excited to have it done and be posting writing for everyone again. I love this universe so so much. Here is a free preview :)

Excerpt from Calescence and Chroma:

He woke first, wet and pissed but alive. The snarl was inevitable as was the sharp movement of rolling onto human hands and knees. Savior or not, he wouldn’t submit to the vampire, couldn’t do so.

“You’re alright. My name is Hoon. I just pulled you out of the pond but you are alright now,” the creature was saying his tones light, nearly human.

This one was foolish, young, and easy to kill if he had wanted. Clearly whoever had created him had not taken the time to teach him the power of things, such as a name. That, however was the least of his worries, since he knew the human within him wouldn’t slumber forever. The human was stronger than he, well versed at this struggle and would have his way.

“He is trying to kill us,” he growled, hating that he was admitting the weakness to a creature so weak himself, but he was out of options. “Will kill us. You can’t let him.”

“Who is trying to kill you?” the young one asked, his hand touching his shoulder lightly.

Struggling to fight the exhaustion the near death had brought them, he lifted his eyes knowing the creature would see wolf gold. “The human side of us,” he growled. “You can’t let us die.” With that last plea, he felt the human within him awaken.

So the interesting thing about being a teacher is remembering all the fun you used to have as a kid.

For the past 9 weeks, I have been teaching a creative writing class. It has been so much fun it interact with young writers in various stages and commitments of writing. It reminds me of just how much I used to enjoy writing before life became to busy to do it any more. Between being married and teaching, I just don't seem to have the same amount of hours that I used to have. Plus not that my husband is not supportive, he just tends to want to do things together all the time. When I write, I tend to curl up for hours and not want to be interrupted so that I don't lose my train of thought.

Still these kids have me smiling. They asked me early on if I knew what yaoi and fanfiction were... I just smiled. If my students only knew.

Any who, I am working (very slowly) on finishing the UKISS side story in my Of Flesh universe. I won't start posting until it is finished because I don't want to make people wait a ton. I've also be tossing around a few original ideas.

On another note, I have discovered the group named Seventeen.... Heaven help me they remind me so much of Super Junior with all their personality... As soon as I learn all of them, all bets are probably off...

And this post has been so random! Sorry guys. I know there are still a few of you who read this. I'm very thankful for those of you that hang around.

*pokes the old and forgotten pages*

Soooooo. Hey guys, hehe. Or shall I say, hello to anyone who is still watching this journal in the hopes that someday I may return. It has been a crazy 2 years for me and a lot has changed.

First the good news. For those of you that are worried about this being an "I'm done with this and moving on forever," post, it isn't. My fiction with always be up here for all of you to read (or here until the site dies or the world ends).

Now for those of you who are curious, here is why I have been completely absent for so long. As I said in a previous post, I was hired as a high school math and english teacher in a location that meant I had to move out of my home state and find a place to stay as well as get myself established. Now anyone that teaches can tell you that even though you have eight hour days and the same vacations as a student, there is so much more time that a teacher has to put into their classroom to be successful. That unfortunately cut my time to write pretty significantly.

Then I also met the man that will become my husband this June and, as you all can imagine, that mostly killed the rest of my time to write. (The fact that he is a total nerd and introduced me to a new MMO didn't help.... :) )

So all of that said, I haven't lost my desire to write, nor the will to do so. It is something that I plan to get back into the summer and next year. It should be even easier for me since I am hoping to teach a creative writing class and I plan to work on creating more story while my kids do, leading by example and all of that.

Since I haven't written in over two years I feel very rusty lol. That doesn't kill my desire to want to get back into though!

I would be more than happy to hear from any of you that are hanging around and I'm sorry for being absent for so long. Also if you would like to help me overcome my supreme writer's block, I am taking an prompts you guys can come up with. I can't promise that any fanfiction will be good since I have been away from the characters (and most of kpop) for a bit but I am willing to try anything. I can also very easily create new characters for whatever you come up with or play in one of my existing universes. Go ahead and hit me with them. :)

I realized today that I haven't written anything to be posted since August.... *breaks down in tears*. Last year I did 25 days of writing and I'm thinking I'm going to do the same thing again this year. I already decided I'm doing one set in my Space universe, but I'm thinking maybe I can manage another universe. So I'll let you guys decided what kind of universe you would like! Vote in the poll below to let me know! (and feel free to leave comments)! Anyone can vote even if you are a silent reader! (I'm not sure how many people I actually have hanging around anymore lolol)

One of my good friends is a write and she doesn't get near enough credit for the wonderful things she has written. So I'm here to recommend a few of her fics that I really enjoy. I hope you will give them a bit of a chance and leave her a comment letting her know what you think.

Personal Assistant
Complete 10/10
Rating: NC-17
First an auto accident, then a lawsuit. HanGeng keeps thinking things can't get much worse... right?

This is one of my favorite fics of hers. I have a soft spot for HanChul anyway, and Heechul is all sorts of feisty here. There are a couple of very steamy smut scenes that I just love. A good read and lucky that you all can read it once it is done instead of while it is being posted!

Personal Assistant Chapter One

In Progress 9/10
Rating: NC -17
As SHINee expands into Japan and other parts of Asia, TaeMin realizes through some first-hand experience that not all the rumors are just rumors. He comes to the conclusion that the best way to counteract bad memories is with good ones.

I love this fic despite it's dark undertones. Unforgettably it wouldn't take much of a stretch for this fiction to be a true story. It talks about some of the darker sides to the industry and how they might be dealt with. It is a truly moving story that made me cry on more than one occasion. This is also one where I guest wrote about a chapter and a half for her, so if you want to see something I have written recently you can hop over there. Please be certain to heed the warnings.

Invictus - Prologue

She has many more that I love, and several of my favorites are haven't been posted for public consumption yet. A lot of great stuff is on it's way! You can browse through her stuff on her masterlist and find some for yourself.

I was thinking of starting to do some rec posts since I love shareing great stuff both old and new that I have read. If that is something that you would find enjoyable, let me know and I'll see about doing them semi-regualary.

I'm working on a few things for you all, so with any luck they will be done in the near future and ready for you all to read!

I realized, this morning after talking with someone, that I don't really have a welcome or introduction post where people can comment and ask to friend me or just talk to me in general. So I am now creating one... Kind of... lol.

Hello to all of my readers and visitors. Here you will find the archives of my writings, both fanfiction and a few original pieces. I love all of my comments and don't mind any bit of constructive criticism if you don't like or don't understand something. Please feel free to speak your mind as long as you are respectful of the fact that I have my own opinions and ideas as well. Anything that I post on here that you can read I fully expect people to comment on so if you can read it then don't worry about feeling bad about commenting on it!

You can find my masterlist of fiction here. Feel free to browse and explore, read and comment until your heart is content.

I'm also on Twitter with mostly nonsensical things.... feel free to follow me!

I post fanfiction news and snippets, along with a lot of randomness on my Tumblr. Jump over there if you would like to keep up to date on that and feel free to follow!

I also hang on on AIM most days and I'm more then willing to chat with anyone who wants to drop me a line at just about anything. I'm karinachildoG@aol.com if you would like to message me.

I'm not certain what else to say in this, lol. If you have any comments, questions, or strange noises to make feel free to shoot me a comment or a message. I'm friendly and I don't bite, most days. ^_^

Feel free to comment here with any

My totally awesome cousin created a T-shirt for the lovely people at Eat Your Kimchi (if you don't know what that is then educate yourself!) She has posted this shirt on Threadless, but the problem is that unless she gets some votes it won't be made. Here is where you come in! (and don't worry there will be bribery).

What you need to do:

Hope onto Threadless (this pretty shirt here) to vote. The important part is to also click the box that says notify me if this becomes a tee. (This doesn't sign you up for anything, just shows your interest. Once that is clicked then along the right (for those of you who are new) is the 1 through 5 voting bar. You may vote for the shirt (even though I want to tell you to push 5). If you are not a member of threadless you will need to create an account first but it is free and painless.

Now here is where the bribery comes in. As one of my readers or people that are seeing this. You may leave a request for a drabble or one-shot here. Every time the rating of the shirt jumps up by .4 I will write another request [it is currently at 1.90]. If the shirt gets printed I will write every request I have here. That means that not only will the few of you that see this need to vote, but you may need to spread the word and encourage others to vote as well.

So here is what I need for your request:

Fandom/Original: Any is acceptable
Characters/Pairing: Any is acceptable
Preferred rating/Max rating: Please include both pieces.
Guiding word: Can be anything and may end up involved in the title
Universe: any of my universe are free game as well as anything you want to think up, including real world.
Prompt: any ideas you have would be helpful for me. The more detailed you are the more you will get exactly what you want...

A Few Items

Ok gang here's the deal. I'm sure a few of you have heard about the whole facebook thing by now. I was out for a couple of days so I'm just hearing about it now. Since it hasn't gone away, I have decided to address the issue.

I don't like it and think it is an aweful idea, because of this I have to please ask you as readers to do a couple of things for me. Please never ever use the little facebook twitter repost chioce in your comment if it is a friend locked entry of mine. I'm not real clear on the details of how much will be reposted, but clearly if things are friend locked I want them that way, including the comments (yes even the ones you make to me). I don't typically lock very many entries so this shouldn't be too much of an issue. Also if it is a regular non story post, please ask before you cross post a comment. Most I won't care about, but since I do sometimes share a bit about my personal life with you, I would rather that not be plastered anywhere but here (yes I understand it is the internet and all that jazz). Finally if you would like to cross post comments on my fiction, knock yourself out, just make sure that proper credit is given for any quoting or anything. If you are lost on what I am saying you can go here and read what has been done to see for yourself, and of course lodge a complaint.

Ok moving on...

Sorry to all of my faithful readers that I have posted nothing on the fiction front for what is two weeks now I believe. I meant to have some time before college started back up to really get some writing done, but then my migraines started flaring up and I got sick and super busy. So I have nothing for you and I do not want to make any promises as to when I will again. All I will tell you is soon (I have three pages of the next chapter written...). No matter what happens, I do not plan to abandon my story/universes and will get to them as time provides. Thank you so much for being patient and it makes me very glad to know that I haven't had problems like some authors who get readers who message them with demands for the next chapters (not that I would mind messages, but demands would be ignored, lol).

And this weekend looks like it is going to be just me and my apartment and my screwy internet so everybody keep your fingers crossed!

So I just finished an evil evil term paper for my American Literature class. I've been working on it and more homework for college then I can possibly count in the last few weeks. Good news is that in roughly 4 weeks I will be on break where I plan to vegetate and well do nothing (except for what I want to do).

Needless to say I haven't gotten any one my stories done...U.U;; Thankfully thus far the only one who seems to be interested in my writing is my little sister and she can just wait patiently.

I have to write a piece for my creative writing class that is between 1000-1500 words. Short and sweet and shouldn't be a problem. However there is a large problem.... I have nothing to write about!!! Every time I start to sit and think of something Zephyr one of my Elemental Kids pops up and demands to be written. Of course then I have to explain to him, in detail, how that simply will not work. For starters I'm positive his little piece will turn out much larger then that. The other issue is that I am pretty sure my nice little college would have a problem with his uh sexual tendencies. He of course sees no problem with his life revolving around sexing up a certain male vampire, but somehow I am sure my professor would... he and the group of peers I have to read it to.

The only other idea I had pop into my brain was a first person piece from the eyes of a lunch tray.... I think I am major trouble here...
