Friend-lock is on: DO NOT SEND ME PRIVATE MESSAGES ON THIS. To be added back (this means you'll have to add me first), just leave a short introduction in this post. It can be about anything really - more fic recommendations for me, the very first fic that drew you into the blackhole, how you came upon my writing. A little something to know you by would be nice, especially if you've never commented or interacted with me before. (:

Introduction

Honestly, I still don't quite know what possessed me to take the leap into writing Penance. I conjured up the gist of the plot, or rather a few specific scenes, and the plot just kept nagging to be translated into writing. I had my reservations about starting, since what I have in mind is a little too convoluted for a mini chaptered fic. The plot requires the laying of some groundwork and fleshing out of the characters' thoughts and motivations. I do hope that I can continue with Penance, and eventually finish with a satisfactory ending. As a new writer, I appreciate any feedback that I can get; what has worked for you or what hasn't. Writing has been an incredibly exhilarating ride for me, and I hope that you guys will stay with me till I'm done with Penance.

Penance
Pairing: Yunho/Jaejoong, Changmin/Heechul, Changmin/Jaejoong
Rating: NC-17
Length: Chaptered
Genre: Angst, drama, AU
Summary: Yunho once chose kinship over love, and is now willing to do anything as penance for his betrayal. Jaejoong had once opened his heart to Yunho, but after those eight years in jail, will he be able to trust Yunho again?
Disclaimer: This is fiction. Pure fiction. The plot, characterization, everything down to each smidgen in the writing, is a product of my imagination. I stake no claim whatsoever over the people mentioned herein.

A/N: Prologue and even-numbered chapters are set in the present, odd-numbered chapters are set in the past.

Prologue | 1 | 2a 2b | 3a 3b | 4 | 5a 5b | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9a 9b | 10 | 11a 11b | 12 | 13a 13b | 14 | 15 |

Actors
Pairing: Yunho/Jaejoong
Rating: R
Length: Chaptered
Genre: Angst, drama, AU, romance
Summary: Yunho has always been Jaejoong's favourite actor, even from the time he was merely a struggling rookie with bit parts in indie projects. Jaejoong is the most important actor in Yunho's life, and the main motivation for him to make his mark in a dirty industry. Sponsorship is the unspoken dirty word, an open secret, yet not so open to some. Jaejoong and Yunho find themselves hanging precariously off the precipice, grabbing desperately at any remnants of their love, lest they plunge into the dark world of sponsorship.

Hello world
TTH
borborygmus5000
It's been a while.

How's everyone?

As much as I like to tell myself that this world belongs to a closed chapter, I still check in on these men from time to time.

Time has flown by, and before I knew it, Jaejoong is completing the last few weeks of service.

Ah, the nostalgia.

How do I even...
TTH

...go about saying this?

I just checked when I last updated any of my stories and I'm more than a little appalled at the unannounced hiatus I took.

I know a few of you are probably wondering how long this lack of updates will last.

I myself wonder whether I'll still have an audience by the time I next drop in an update of Penance or Actors.

Will there even be another update?

I honestly don't know.

There are lots more plot lines swirling around inside my head but the huge transition I'm facing right now means that I'm either too tired to translate these ideas into words, or I have absolutely no time for that at all.

Sometimes I wonder whether it'll be a better idea to close down this space instead of leaving old and new readers tantalized with a half-written story with no resolution or ending in the near future.

I don't know.

SAY IT ISN'T SO

Prologue


It was early in autumn the day they first metCollapse )


Note 1: And so Jaejoong and Yunho meet for the first time. Take heart, Jaejoong won't always remain the way he is in this chapter. I'm planning to alternate chapters between lengthy flashbacks and the present. For those who are curious, Jaejoong is granted early release from prison when he is 27 years old. This is unbeta'd so please alert me to any mistakes. Also, do let me know your thoughts, and please feel free to critique. (:
