An author that is no longer writing. I loved and learned a lot from being here. Thank you for appreciating my words!

On Sex in Romance · 7:46am Mar 16th, 2015

I don't think that sex scenes in romance are "necessary"; for many stories, depending on tone, mood, intention, etc, they would be extremely superfluous. I don't believe they should be described in lengthy, erotic detail in many stories, either, even though that is what some consider most "gratifying" about them.

My belief is only that, as human beings, sex and romance are inextricably linked.

How do you (the follower) feel about smut / clean stories · 4:37am Nov 21st, 2014

Hey there,

I haven't posted anything for a million years, but that may change soon. Dunno. We'll see.

This blog post is entirely to gauge feedback on two types of stories that have not yet existed on this page. My stuff up until now has been a mixture of romance and sex, but I am curious about how you guys would feel about stories that are:

1) all sex, pure smut, little/no buildup

2) romance but contain no sex

Quick Update · 2:30am May 15th, 2014

I don't expect many people are still checking in/asking "Where the heck has Idylia been?" but I figure it's good to say something every once in a while.

I'm still here, checking the site daily pretty much.
I'm still editing stuff for people. That's the majority of my interaction with the site as of late.
I have ideas for writing and now I believe I have the motivation for it as well.

"Where Have You Been?" and other nonsensical doodads and hootenanies · 11:41pm Feb 10th, 2014

TL;DR and also a convenient organizational outline
1. College
2. Taking care of myself
3. Being lazy
4. Engaging socially with other human beings
If these reasons aren't sufficient (they're certainly not for me) add "is difficult" to the end of those and you might feel a little bit better about them, regardless of whether they are or not (see: my methods of coping).

In order.

Happy Holidays to Everyone! · 4:21pm Dec 25th, 2013

I truly love each and every one of you.

I dislike making blog posts without an ascribed purpose, but maybe communication is purpose enough.

Promoting a Worthwhile Story · 9:04am Dec 14th, 2013

So normally I wouldn't do this for a story that I edited because conflict of interest and I don't want people coming to me to read their stories just for the purpose of me promoting them if they're good, but

New Chapter (s) of Heat Rises · 4:52am Oct 23rd, 2013

Hey there folks,

The reason the update has been taking so long is because I've rewritten chapter two about three times and it's finally in a place that I'm proud of. While I was in the midst of revising that, I wrote the next arc basically in it's entirety.

So, before the end of tonight, expect to see two new chapters from me.

First we're exploring Rainbow's arc and what happens with Soarin in the VIP section of the bar.

Looking forward · 3:42am Oct 14th, 2013

One of the greatest feelings in the world is to wake up to 300+ notifications and a story in the featured box. My writing is far from perfect and I still have very much to learn and improve on, and to have people enjoy something as I'm learning the ropes makes the whole process more than just easy-- it makes it fun and rewarding and it gives me something to look forward to with every word that I write.

Thank you to my followers from before for being so patient with me.

Tomorrow · 11:04am Oct 12th, 2013

Or, rather today.

9800 words, pretty long process for just the first chapter.
Thanks for being patient.
