I recently checked this old e-mail, which has fallen to viruses and spambots and almost over-looked this email. I'm glad I didn't; even though it's been years, it's still nice to hear positive feedback.
I'm very glad you enjoyed SR. I've thought about it a lot since I went on hiatus, often considering putting it up for adoption - letting somebody know what my plans were for it, and letting them take it up. Sometimes I considered just sitting down one day and finishing it myself. I always feel bad when I consider how it's become one of these "eternal WIPs." But then, when I decide to write it, I always feel guilty that I'm not working on any of my other original works, which may some day have their own futures.
My writing style has evolved over the years and I am constantly curious to see how that would manifest in fanfiction writing. I hope some day I get over my guilt and find out, both for my sake and for my readers' (I say, as if I haven't lost all of my following).
I suppose this rant doesn't have much of a conclusion. I can't promise that I'll ever finish any of my WIPs, if that's what you are looking for. But I do feel obligated to let you know that I've never forgotten about it, and I spend a great deal of time contemplating it. If I do finish them, I doubt it will happen soon. I have an extremely busy year ahead of me, and even if I wanted to step out of my hiatus and resume where I left off, I wouldn't have the time. I'm sorry I can't offer anything more than that right now, and I hope you understand. If I come back, I look forward to finishing up that story for myself, you, and anyone else who waited. You all deserve it.
