Hi, Michelle! Thanks, that's so nice of you to say all of that. I'm glad you like my artwork and stories.

As for a Coming Soon section . . . I don't have one. I just keep posting and posting to this thread, teasing what's to come as I go rather than adding it onto one of the opening posts.

Hi April,

I love you art work and I love your stories. I wish I could write Michael and Maria like you do. I love writing and still trying to complete fics. I'm a big Dreamer, but I'm also a big Candy fan girl too. I wanted to say I'm very proud of all your writing. I started my own blog and I love your Tumblr page. Do you have any suggestions on how I can learn how to write Michael and Maria.

Special thanks too

Aw, thanks, Michelle! I really appreciate the compliments.

As far as advice . . . well, since you're a big Dreamer, it probably comes naturally to you to write them. I know that's the way it is for me with Michael and Maria. Their storylines and characterizations just flow into my head non-stop. But sometimes, with the other couples, even though I love and appreciate them as well, it takes me a little longer to come up with stuff.

My advice would be to tap into that aspect of Michael and Maria's relationship that you enjoy, and go with it. See, for me, with Max and Liz, the aspect of their relationship I find myself most invested in isn't the sweet/fairytale side. It's the tragic, twisted, sometimes downright unhealthy side. So that's why, in my fics, especially in later more ensemble ones, they tend to carry darker storylines. Because that's the part of Canon Max/Liz that fascinates me.

I don't know if that makes any sense or not. But to recap, pinpoint what it is you enjoy about M+M and make that the focal point when you write them. The more you write them, the more comfortable you'll get with them. :)

Okay Thank You April, Oh some of you links don't work in your novel section, Your Story Beautiful is one but a couple others aren't working either.

I'll have to fix those links at some point since I think I originally linked them to the now-defunct Roswell Desert Skies site.

YES! At last! It's taken me weeks to get this video completed. Then it took me forever to get it uploaded because it's a massive file size. Finally, I think I got it, though.

This is probably the best video I've ever made. It is set to a duet by Taylor Swift and Gary Lightbody called "The Last Time." I'm not usually a Taylor Swift fan, but I've always liked this song.

ENJOY!

Here is a new video:

Michael Guerin - Remember Everything


Side note: I finished writing Someone, Anyone! I can't believe it only took me a little over a year. (And it's been a busy year!) I think it ended up being a very cohesive piece, and I'm thrilled with the way it turned out.

Here's a little artwork I made a while ago. Nothing fancy, but kind of cute. The manip in the bottom left corner is not mine, and I can't recall who created it. The second manip on the top row was created by Ellashy.
