One of the most depressing things I've encountered recently was a review for ABP that described it as "abandoned".  Its not, although i understand why people would think so.

Bug and I talk about it often, and try writing in fits and spurts. 

Those that have followed us closest might remember we've been dealing with things like both of us having pain issues (joint disease for me, while Bug was diagnosed with MS a couple yrs ago).  So there's the stress and anxiety and depression with that.  About 2.5 yrs ago we moved to our first house we bought.

I know there is lot sof stuff between then and now, but to be honest, I can't remember.  Heck, if you asked me to list our stressors just inthe past month, I'd not remember half of them, let alone put them in chronological order.  Its just like before we have finished with stressor A, stressor B hits us.  We finally take care of A, only to have C hit us, before we are finished with B, and so on.

I'll have to write about the current shit we'll dealing with for anyone who is interested, but not now as i have to get to bed very soon and that needs to be flocked anyway.

Anyway, back to ABP...

For a while, I had been resolving to get the current book finished... and since is was so long since an update, i figured that since people would likely need to re-read to remember WTF was going on, I might aw well just make it one big update - like "update: book finished!"  yeah, that worked well, didn't it?  I mean, just give myself an impossibly big task, with no positive feedback as I went along, while life continues to throw shit at me... why i thought that was a good idea, again, i don't know.

So, new idea!

i'm going to go back to posting updates- even if just a few pages at a time.  I can't promise they will be regular, but I should actually make some progress instead of just falling into despair at my ongoing failure, and hopefully prevent any further encounters of "warning: abandoned fic".

It's so good to hear from you! I'm sorry that you've been swamped by RL things and stress, though. D: I haven't forgotten ABP, but certainly didn't want to nag you guys about it when I knew you were having some tough times ("nagging" seems to be the current multi-fandom bugbear! it's a contagious attitude).

Keep on working out those stressors, and keep on writing as much as you are able! Best of luck to you both. ♥

Hi you.

I'm the one who asked you the permission to translate your fanfic "A bittersweet Potion". I have just finished the work with the book I. As your request, I have sent you the copy of the translation via your email address but I am wondering whether my email has reached you or not. If you have received it, please confirm me.

Nice day!
Lam Linh.

I am delighted to hear that it is still in progress. I just read the whole series over the last week on [personal profile] perverse_idyll's rec, and despite having strayed to other fandoms, it re-kindled my love of Snarry. Your Severus is brilliant and terrible and fascinating. I look forward to seeing more from you when you do have time to write again.
