-_- *sigh*

Call it losing impetus, running out of steam, even just something inane like falling prey to pageviews, whatever. Whatever you want to call it, I've got it.

Seriously. Don't think I'm going to get this story finished. -_-

It was far easier when I was just writing for myself, with just my own characters. I make the stupid mistake of reading other people's things, and even the Suey-est, most-ooc scmaltzy things get these glowing reviews, and I just wonder what I'm doing wrong?

Yeah yeah, I know, that old green eyed monster again. I'll just shut up :P

*clings to seekers and sparklings* You can't just leave them like this!

A lot of readers don't like original characters on principle, so maybe they're not giving the story a chance, but I doubt I'm the only one who loves it.

Hm, this is true - I've seen plenty of folk who'll call a character a "Sue" purely because they're not from the canon series, but ignore the most eye-gougingly ooc Sue-ish "canon" character purely because they're from the original series.

I will try and finish it. It's just... hard. :\

I've had a reviewer beg me not to turn my fic into slash, because my male main character made an offstage visit to talk with his girlfriend. At least I think that must have been the reason. It was the slashiest thing going on in that chapter. Never trust your reviewers to know the meaning of the words they're using. ;)
