Synopsis: "And why are you here?" the nurse asked as professionally as she could. I glanced at Santana, the girl I had only met a few hours previously and thought about the events of the day that had brought me here.
Word Count: 5,810.
Synopsis: What would you do if you found the girl of your dreams only to have her leave before you could even ask for her name? What if you found out that very same girl works in the building across the street from where you work and her office is located just a couple of stories below yours? (Based on a combination two shorts films: Disney’s ‘Paperman’ and ‘Signs’ by Patrick Hughes.)

So wow… it’s been a while, huh? Let me update you on what’s been going on. If you follow my personal Tumblr you sort of have an idea, but I’ll give a more thorough break down.
A couple months ago (around the end of October/beginning of November, if I remember correctly), I had what I thought was a severe sinus infection, it was so bad it was making my teeth hurt. I was put on multiple courses of antibiotics and the pain stopped and I thought that was the end of it.
A week ago last Sunday (January 26th) the pain came back and I thought I had another really bad sinus infection so I immediately went back on really strong antibiotics, but the pain was so much worse than last time. By Thursday I was in so much pain I was sobbing, I was basically taking any kind of pain medicine I could to relieve it enough to get through the night.
The next morning I went to the ER. When they checked me in, the pain wasn’t so severe and I told them I thought it was a severe sinus infection so they didn’t think it was anything serious and I waited for a bunch of hours. I was seen and given pain medicine and a head CT and the doctor told me he believes I’m suffering from Cluster Headaches, which are one of the most painful forms of head pain.

So I’m taking some steroids which has helped so much, and I have an appointment with a neurologist next week.
tl;dr: I’ve been so hazy and in pain I couldn’t focus on anything.

Title: MY CORPORATE LIFE
Synopsis: If I had known I would meet my future wife that day, perhaps I wouldn’t have taken advantage of my company’s casual dress code. If I had known I would meet her that day, perhaps I would have paid attention to her name when we were introduced. But I didn’t know. Luckily, the nine to five corporate life allows for more than just a first impression.
Word Count: Incomplete.
Status: WORK IN PROGRESS.
Lately I seem to be coming across this issue more and more, so I figured I might as well speak my mind on it. Folks, there is such a thing as fan fiction responsibility. Allow me to explain.
Among authors, there is an unwritten rule of respect. Perhaps it’s because we know how difficult it is to write, how time consuming, draining it can be. And for that reason, we almost become like cheerleaders to one another (at least in this fandom). Since joining the fanfiction realm, I have made several relationships with amazingly talented people who have helped edit, shape and mold my work into something better. For this, I’m infinitely grateful. I’ve made conscious efforts to try and give back this same effort in return.
As a writer (and I think I can speak for many others as well), I hold myself responsible for three things. 1 - Quality. I try to give readers chapters that are crisp, without typos and grammar errors. 2 - Effort. I spend weeks working on my writing before posting. 3 - Constancy. I try and at least be consistent with my updates, not going on prolonged hiatus periods. With being a grown up and having grown up responsibilities, let me tell you, this is a fucking challenge.
But I still do it. For free. Without gaining anything in return. I put myself out there in the blind faith of the fandom, writing because I want to write. I enjoy it and I enjoy sharing it.
But as a reader, your responsibility doesn’t just end at reading; it goes far beyond that. You must also follow the unwritten paradigm of respect. You do this by being honest in your feedback, not pressuring authors for updates, not publicly slamming the work of others, and lastly, not plagiarizing.
There is no need to ever publicly shame fic, an author, or a story on a public platform.
If you have lost your investment in a story, move on. If you think it sucks donkey dicks from the beginning, don’t read it anymore. The beautiful thing about fandom is that there is plenty of selection to choose from. Or if you’re so inclined, send the author a PM telling them how you feel and why. Be constructive about it. But don’t put someone or their hard work on blast because you think it’s okay. Writing is fucking hard.
I can’t speak for others, but I am extremely approachable. I answer all PM’s, messages, or direct communication. I’m extremely receptive to criticism. I’m willing to bet most other writers are the same.
So please, if you cannot handle the responsibilities of being a fan fiction reader, take your eyes somewhere else. Amazon has plenty of published books you can download and buy.

Synopsis: You close your eyes for a brief second and contemplate if this is real and if you are actually on a lesbian dating website about to chat with some unknown person who could be an online pedophile. You shrug your shoulders, because this chick is definitely worth the risk. As soon as you press the send button, you face palm yourself for being an idiot. What kind of response is that?
