Hey... been a while.
Can't say I haven't had an opportunity throughout these years to get back to this account. Can't really say I could either.
Things have... things have gone badly, I... don't like going into detail about my personal life, but in 2001 my family and I ran away from what we believed a very dangerous situation. Unfortunately, part of the family didn't think it was worth moving to a new country, and stayed behind much to our chagrin. Some of those that came with us are no longer here either.
I studied, I passed, I failed, I went to Uni and I failed again. Found myself a job about two years ago and been (almost literally) slaving about since, trying to have ends meet and help my blood-kin in whatever way I could. Pay's lousy, not enough to sustain getting myself around on a car, and it's on the other side of the city, so that means couple hours going and a another couple going back home.
For those of you out there who've had (or maybe still do?) to endure on bad pays, less than understanding bosses, and long travel hours to and from work, well, it's a nightmare, only made more strenuous because I also work 24h on a weekend to better round up the numbers.
As you can figure, this has meant a lot of things for me. Getting slapped right across the face in the labor world was an eye-opening experience, and though many things are going badly, I have hopes they're moving to the better now that some people of importance at my work-place are starting to treat me like a human being.
Now, to the part that involves you people out there who've seen this account get covered in dust and rot, time to get to business and set things straight.
First and foremost, I owe to you the truth about my (technically?) continuing series... they're dead. All of them.
I made a big mistake in letting myself start one story after another and never bringing them to a finish. It's nice and all and at least some of them felt (and still feel) worth-while, but I am no longer going to keep you (and myself) under the false thread of hope that 'someday' I'll add another chapter. It's dead.
If there's anyone out there interested on the world, setting, whatever, I don't mind you do something with it, just put me in a corner of the last page as a bit of a source for inspiration and I won't complain if you're earning money with it.
This said, I originally envisioned deleting this account and moving on, make myself a new username and pretend I'm not TGFWritter (yes, it's a double T when it should've been one, still regret that), well, I don't want that. I came to like most of you people going about and I still have left some form of attachment to DA even after all these years of deadnes... still came very close to it though.
I'm sorry for stalling, but what all this block of text is getting to is that I never really gave up writing, I had to distance myself and get some time to work my head around what I've done and come to terms with what I HAD to do and prove to myself I was capable of going on with a single story and finish it... something I began on Oct of 2013 and have been keeping on track since.
For this I used my real account name: "Ravnicrasol", a name I would've used on DA as well had my brother not thought it funny to make an account of his own years before I knew of this place (hence why I was forced to use another name... *sigh*), and well, I also didn't want my other username and this one to get linked since I felt mostly embarrassed at giving up on everything I had done, kept telling myself I'd confess and carry on and the weeks turned to months and... well, it's Jun 2015, go figure I could get this awkward.
So for the TL;DR version, I'm back, I'm going to start uploading the story I've been doing in FF here to DA, though it'll take me a bit to do all of them. I plan on keeping at it until it's over, and thus far I'm doing my best to keep a pace of about a chapter every two weeks or so.
If you're not feeling like waiting until I've uploaded it all (which could take a couple days), you can find it here: www.fanfiction.net/s/9772088/1…
