Hey guys, Sam here!
-My name is Sam, and I would appreciate it if you referred to me by that name.
-I am a Hufflepuff and Thunderbird (offically sorted) and my Patronus is a Mastiff Dog
-I absolutely love writing. It's one of my escapes along with music
-I am an artist and plan on going to a college for animation
-I also plan on creating my own comic book and publishing it (WIP as of now)
-I am a very slow writer. I plan out each story chapter by chapter (or try to) then I write it all out at once. If I don't like the way a story is going, it normally results in multiple do-overs, which makes updating constantly on a schedule very difficult.
-My Archiveofourown name is Shezza_Cumberbatch and my Tumblr is that-one-new-pokemon.
-Thanks to the lovely starangel2106, my username has been officially changed. I used to be SamuelWinchester, so don't be confused why I'm suddenly not on the author's page anymore under that name. Just head on over to the T's instead. =)
I am fully aware that Another Life Lead and Wings of Sun have taken ages to update. The reason for that is I have completely lost interest in the stories and thier plots. So for now, consider them on hold until further notice.
With Another Life Lead, I had published it earlier than intended due to a preview error and since you all liked what I published, I went ahead and posted the rest of what I had written at that time. Now, I have completely forgotten what I was going to write for the rest of the story. Until I can remember and compltely finish, there will be no update. It will take a lot of time, perhaps years, but I hope you can wait just a bit longer.
With Wings of Sun, I absolutely hate what I have written. I still love the concept and challenge that Mellow Moon has written, but I hate how I wrote it out and how I responded to the challenge. Due to long times between updates and poor planning on my part, I have forgotten what the original plot was, so I just wrote down whatever came into my head, resulting in the jumbled mess I have now. So, what I am going to do is completely rewrite the story, with a whole new plot. The new story will be called Birds of a Feather and will take some time to write. As of now, it is still in the beginning stages of planning and will take a lot of time to finish. I will keep up Wings of Sun, so you can continue to read it at your leisure, just dont expect any updates.
I also have a few stories that have been running around in my head for quite a while. For some, I've begun writing, while for others, I'm still planning out chapters and finishing the plot before writing. Im going to go ahead and put the summaries and tags here below, just so you know what to expect and what to look forward to. It may take a long time, but I will get these stories out!
