Convolutions of an Evil Mind
Notice to my oh-so-patient COI readers... (it's not bad news, really!)
54 hisses or Hiss in my ear....

Woohoo!!! *runs in circles* I'm soo psyched!!


I just love your writing and your perspective on characters and the work you put in and share on your interpretation of the universe. Heck I'll admit it you are one of my favorite authors and part of the reason I found and enjoyed fanfiction to begin with. I've read stuff by you in fandoms I never read that is how much I like your writing. :P

On the subject of rewrites. I use to find them very irritating and annoying when I was younger, but now I must admit I can really see the advantage of them and in cases with long stories or writers who have really developed and grown and really like them. One because the redux in itself really benefits from the growth in plot and writing style. Two because I will admit I'm weak to AUs, turning things on their head and different PoVs. Third I think writing should be a joy and fun not something you feel you have to force yourself to do. I would much rather an author I really enjoy move on and write something that gives them happiness and joy then burn themselves out turning something they once enjoyed into a chore.

Finally I'm selfish and greedy. I'll take more of anything you have to give me. :P

As a final note, I'm so glad to hear from you, I was worried something had happened to you.

Sorry to worry you. I've been occupied by a lot of things -- most recently, I've been spending way too much time on knitting and on Ravelry.

Going back to writing is one way of keeping myself from buying more pretty, pretty yarn. ^_^;

Thanks for all the interest and support!

A rewrite on the scale of COI Redux is a big step and a big commitment, but I felt that it was the only way to give the basic plot of COI the presentation that it really deserves. Also, I very much agree with you about all the benefits of being able to rework an old fic. Over the years, my writing style has naturally changed and hopefully matured.

So I hope you enjoy this particular rewrite!
