2006 - the year of block. After pouring my guts into "Arcana Viscera," I was utterly drained, lost, and unsure of where to go next. My psycho ex dumped me, I hit deep depression, met my future ex-fiance, moved out from home, entered the corporate rat race...and almost forgot I was a writer.

I started sputtering back into life late in the year when I fell in love with Final Fantasy X, my first console video game evah, and then with the startling goodness that is the live-action Sailor Moon. More ficlet requests on LiveJournal, and a lot of insecurity and feeling things out. I didn't fully break the block until another year and another fandom.
