My fic posting has slowed down somewhat. I just posted a reincarnation story for [livejournal.com profile] neomeruru's beautiful artwork for i-reversebang, and I'm pretty sure that's my last commitment for Inception fandom. Actually, it's probably my last commitment for any fandom for a good long while.

I will probably still work on some of the fics I have in progress, and continue to post those as they leave my fingers. I just don't think I have it in me to commit to anything in particular fandom-wise. I'm still on twitter, still on tumblr, still hanging around LJ and AO3. But I do believe it's time to strike out and work on some original works.

The past year and a half has been incredible for me. You guys inspired me to start writing, and with the help and encouragement of many, I've tried to stretch my wings a little to attempt things like the big bang and an actual mystery. The porn has been fun, and I will continue to write it into my stories, I think, but it's time to challenge myself further.

TL;DR - I'll sporadically produce more Inception fanfic, but not participate in fests or anything. I'm still around, and still up for flailing over all manner of things, but it's time to start writing my own original work.

Excellent news. I am getting towards that point myself. I've learnt so much from writing fic, but I cold do this forever, and it's time to concentrate on my work I think.

Good luck with it, and I am always still here should you want to bat ideas round.

Thanks! I think we're in pretty much the same place. I would love to see your original stuff, whenever you're ready to share it with the world.

And same goes: we can lob stuff back and forth, see if ideas hold together. \o/

You'll still be part of fandom!

This makes me wonder if there's a specific comm/group/mailing list for fanfic writers working on original fiction. Seems like it would be a great thing to have, because our community is powerful.

Thanks! I love this fandom and despite what people are doing, I like to see how many people are still hanging around.

That comm would be interesting. If you hear anything, I'd love to know about it. There's the Pacific Northwest group which seems to be interested in pan-fandom things as well as being plugged into writers' groups and such. Probably worth poking around.

Oh yay! Good luck with your original work! You are so very talented, I can't wait to read!
I'm glad, that you'll be sticking around though.

Thank you! And thank you! I couldn't imagine just leaving, when I've met people like yourself and chatted with so many. I also don't have another place where people understand the need to flail, be a fan, and also understand the ups and downs of writing/creating.

Your cat gif freaks me out a little. Haha! <3

Thank you very much! Now that I'm peeking out of my little fandom silo, I wouldn't mind checking out more of what's going on in our little region of the world. I know you're involved in that ebook endeavour, and I'd love to chat more in general about the writing scene. ♥

am always open for a chat (in various ways.) am only dabbling in ebook stuff, but would like to get more involved and happy to share any thoughts/knowledge etc.

Indeed!

It probably goes without saying (but far be it from me to not say it anyway) that you've been the biggest, most instrumental person in helping me work on my writing and giving me the confidence to keep moving forward. Alllll the hearts in my gin cupboard for you.
