When Death Note News began, it was primarily going to be a place to let people know what was happening with my It Matters Series - fan-fiction about Mello and Matt - plus updates on Death Note, should any occur.
We didn't know then that Death Note was suddenly going to become major news, hitting its 10th anniversary and spawning a TV drama and two new movies. The focus here shifted somewhat.
Nevertheless I should still let folk know when more of my fan-fiction stories about Mello and Matt are available to read.
There's been quite a bonanza of it recently, all due to readers responding to my Dollar a Drabble Pet Supplies Appeal.
(And this is still on-going. There's still the neutering/spraying to happen, and the boa constrictor needs a larger vivarium. *sobs*)
I've also been really touched by how many people, in donating to the cause and providing me with a remit for their tale, wanted it set in my own Mello/Matt universe. I didn't expect that. I'll be honest and say that it made things a lot easier in terms of speedily getting these stories written and out. But I anticipated all kinds of AUs and/or alternatives from the canon. Not so much Matti!Canon, coupled with (so far) unanimous permission from all commissioning tales, for those stories to be shared with everyone else.
Lots of happy tears here. Reading compliments and requests, feeling so honoured to be entrusted with long-treasured plot bunnies and witnessing readers of my work wanting to add their own chapter in my voice to the MelloxMatt Matti!canon. Absolutely thank you all.
Where to Read New Mello/Matt MRSJeevas Fan-Fiction
As one-shots, they usually first appear in the relevant sub-forum at He Moves Me Differently: Matti!Canon Mello/Matt One-Shots Those with an account registered at the forum can subscribe at the top, in order to be notified of any post updates.
My stories eventually turn up in the library too. That may be located on my MRSJeevas fan-fiction website, also called He Moves Me Differently. It could be practically simultaneously. It could be days later. All depends on when I log into my ftp server and upload them there too.
However, I will link you directly here to the most recent additions, as posted onto the forum:
