BLM-Chapter 30

Hello Ladies!

Apologize for the delay, I have had quite the crazy hectic week (last week) and was unable to focus at all.

Chapter 30 is here.

Storytelling time:

I met this beautiful, gorgeous and hot man who I had literally everything in common including ERIC NORTHMAN (right?). I mean the guy dressed up as him last Halloween (*drool)…. He even asked me to teach him salsa (man after my own heart) as our first non-date.

Anyways, I had no delusion since he had dropped the bomb of being in the military (spec ops nonetheless and I verified his story with my friends in the military) which my judgy self decided he most likely just wanted to have fun (most spec ops are adrenaline junkies who are definitely not ready to settle, I know you… I see you). While I have absolutely no problem with one night stand, I unfortunately cannot enjoy them myself (long story). But anyhow, I was happy to just be in his company, I mean he was a geek just as much as me!!! Truth be told, once I realized after our first kiss how intense this was, I had made the decision to let him know I thought this was too intense and I wasn’t ready for it the minute he would come on to me again.

The joke is, the last date we had he gave me the breakup speech on how he doesn’t want a long term relationship and I am sitting in his car blinking completely dumbfounded! LOL

I wasn’t either!!! But of course, I didn’t respond because I was too in shock that he would just assume I was looking for long term… I don’t know if it was because I wasn’t throwing myself to him Friday but anyhow, he was a gentleman about it so no harm done. Honesty is something I appreciate, I just wish he would have been honest from the get go including the small detail he was trying to pick up more than one woman at a time (from the same village HAHAHA)

I guess the only disappointment is that being my naïve self I thought perhaps we could have been friends BHAHAHAAHA I am silly little girl 🙂 It’s sad because we really did have a lot in common!!!

But I have told you guys over and over again everything happens for a reason and while that guy was too good to be true and turned out to be exactly that, he taught me that should love present itself at my door again, that I would actually be open to try…. that is a gift and something I get to look forward to, thanks soldier boy!!!

BLM-Chapter 29

THE END IS NEAR

I can feel it, I can see it! It is so close, I can almost touch it…..

It is crazy to think that 18 months ago, I started this story as a challenge to myself that I could write something that was not too out there (I tend to be in the left fields with most my fics) yet different enough to be remembered. I am incredibly proud of what I have accomplished with this one and to see the difference between the writing in my first fic (A Better Tomorrow) and the writing in this one just brings a smile to my face. I cannot thank you enough for all your support and I really hope the wait was worth it.

I am excited to share chapter 29 with you. Many things are explained in this chapter and more will be in the following ones. I will be publishing once or twice a week until the end of the story…

I am currently wrapping up chapter 34 and I suspect I will need a few more to conclude the story.

Like always, I welcome your feedback.

You can thank Nicolle for the beta work on this one, she has done an amazing job and as a result, I am sure the read will be much more enjoyable!

Take care

Val

Children of The Night

Hey guys,

For those who have followed me for a long time already know this story but I thought I would bring it over to this wordpress for those of you who may have not known about it.

Children of the Night is a long one shot featuring Godric and Eric only. Sookie is not in this story as it takes place in the Victorian era.

It had originally been written as part of a contest but the group as since stopped putting together challenges (SAD FACE)

If you have not read it yet, do let me know what you think 🙂

Chapter 29 of Bleed Like Me should be added as soon as I get it back from review.

I have been toying with World War Me as well. I would like to finish that one too but it needs major revamping. Hahaha

Have a great day guys!

Update (no chapter)

Hello all!

Just an update that I am alive and well. I have not published anything since November but I have been writing plenty.

I always keep my promises and I told you before leaving the fandom I would finish my stories. I am almost done with Bleed Like Me.

I am currently staring at chapter 33. I find myself incredibly proud of what I have accomplished with the story and excited to share its final chapters.

I have always been one of those writers who likes to publish chapters as I write them. It makes for quicker update but a downside of it would be that sometimes I noticed a mistake, or forgot to mention something, and I can’t go back and correct it.

Of course instant gratification has its perks and explains why it has always been the way I published but….

With that being said, I have been trying to fight the urge to publish chapter 29 for 2 reasons. The first one being that since I am on its last chapters, I want to avoid making mistakes and leaving plot holes in my story. By not publishing right away, it allows me to re-read myself many times and correct mistakes in chapter 29 or 30 (important chapters) that are crucial to the rest of the story.

The second reason is because I need a chance to practice. As some of you now, I have been working on my original stuff here and there but I find it incredibly difficult to keep it to myself and not have anyone to share it with. I love writing and of course, I do it for myself, but the instant gratification of self-publishing is something I grew accustom to and find difficult to not have with my original stuff.

I have this amazing story about this awesome character named Eleanor. I love her to pieces and I love writing stories about her but I cant share it with anyone and its driving me insane LOL I want you guys to meet her but damn it, I also want to try to get publish one day…. First world problems I guess 🙂

Maybe one day!

Anyhow, I think I will be ready to post chapter 29 shortly. The wait shouldn’t be much longer and I promise will be worth it.

 

Take care 🙂

BLM-Chapter27

Hello all,

I posted the chapter here.

Hope everyone is doing great, I got into a second accident the other day. Got rear ended. The woman was not looking at the road and didn’t realise that by accelerating to beat the red light, it meant she wouldn’t stop in time when the traffic jammed in front of me. She slammed into me at full speed, enough that my poor little hatchback cannot open its trunk!

That happened thursday but I have been recovering from another accident back in september where I hit someone who was in my blind spot when I changed lane over. I had just gotten my car back too!

All that to say I am fine but very sore and I am going nuts because I cant go to the gym -_- Sometimes I take my health granted.

I also wanted to address an elephant in the room. I realise that I won an award for As Long as We Live in the You Want Blood Award and the fact that I have been silent on the entire thing could come across as I am not thankful. that is what the haters say anyway.

Words cannot describe how grateful I am to my readers for not only leaving comments but for taking the time to nominate me and vote for me!

From the bottom of my heart I thank you sincerely.

As for my silence, I promised a year ago I would not get involved in the community anymore. I just want to be able to publish my stories without involvement in anything else. Some of you might know the story behind the choice, some might not and that’s okay. I just want to move on.

So thank you so much for all your support, it is appreciated and it is my honour to share my stories with you! I am sorry if you took my silence as being ungrateful, it is far from it!!!
