[sticky post] hiatus!  

winter blossom is ongoing

scratch any cynic and you will find a disappointed idealist.

dear fandom, i am disillusioned.

i always thought livejournal was a place for sharing ideas and creativity. i've made numerous respected and cherished friends through reading and writing fiction over the years. and the process of sharing, inspiring and learning from one another was always what made the writing process so enjoyable.

i'm saddened to say that this year i decided to embark on a personal challenge. i wrote something that had been stewing in my head for sometime, things that were uncomfortable, challenging but frankly, exciting to write. i had never toyed with such a different narrative, or such dark themes before.

honestly, i don't expect any of my work to be well received by anyone. but the offensive comments, drama, negativity and small mindedness i have encountered have been entirely disappointing. i believe strongly in one's freedom to free expression; and similarly, i believe there is no excuse to infringe on someone's desires to write what they want to.

i understand we may not always agree on topics, but we can choose to be tactful, kind and open-minded to things we ourselves do not always appreciate or understand.

i will continue to write because i enjoy it and because i write only for myself.

i have a few pieces in the works that i would like to finish. winter blossom being one of them.

Oh no...and here I was super excited for the new chapter of Winter Blossoms...only to find that I can no longer read it :(

But anyways, I respect your decision, and can only say that you shouldn't let those small-minded people affect your desire to write. There are so many readers who love what you do :)

ahhh I kind of like Winter Blossoms and was waiting for the last two chapters.
I especially love the way you wrote the characters of Jaejoong and Yunho in that story.
It all seems very realistic. I read some comments for the latest chapters and realized many people couldnt stomach the idea of Yunho raping Jaejoong and stuff but it would seem even more ridiculous if you write Yunho softening towards Jaejoong and falling in love with him when he just met the latter for a day.
Furthermore, non consensual intercourse during war is not an uncommon occurrence. I'm not saying its a right thing to do, in case some other people might fire me for saying this, just that a war plot will not be a good plot without these dark elements in it.
Sorry for my ranting, heh. I respect your decision to put this story on hiatus but I will be waiting for the day you come back to complete Winter Blossoms. :) :)

i'm going to miss you so much T______T but people are always going to talk shit about the things they don't like or aren't close to their ideal ideas >< so don't feel disappointed by that because you have your own ideas and you can't please everyone <3

I've loved your stories and beautiful writing style, and thank you for giving so much! Too bad the critics just don't go away quietly, you're not in the business of writing what they want, sheeesh! Take care!

I am sorry you are going on hiatus when I have relatively recently found your excellent fics and there are many of them I have yet to read. It is distressing when readers decide to comment negatively and meanly. Thankfully I have yet to experience that with my own writing. I think the more popular your writing the more likely it is to attract negativity. I will be looking forward to you coming off hiatus.

I just want you to know that for me none of your fics was bad or crossed the line of decency. I wish you all the best, my dear favourite author who made me cry ♥

I'm sorry that you had a bad experience. Hopefully one day you will feel like writing again. I really like your stories.

I was so busy with work and finally found time to visit LJ and seen the part 8 updated of winter blossom but I could not read it (T_T)
I can't even explain how disappointed I am right now since I read & commented on the story from the start...
Also ppl that were rude to you should have their comments get deleted or more like ignored coz if they didn't like any part of the story they could always skip it lol I mean if you warned your readers that the update contains rape scenes (with which not every fan is OK with) I don't see the problem...
Anyways I will forever feel sad for not getting to know what happened next in the story... but I will respect your decision.
Hope things will get better~^^
