nothing quite like the feel of something new...

(site updates)


                                 Welcome to St. Louis...after dark

It's February 19th, 2011
As I think most of you know by now, I am no longer writing ABVH fanfiction.  My swan song was St.Louis Own Jim Morrison and it was a fitting ending to my time as an ABVH fan.  I think, anyway.  This site will go on however, because I know more people discover ABVH everyday and for awhile, the books were great.  Those new fans deserve to enjoy themselves too. 
I am mainly promoting my own books now.  A series of paranormal (kind of Gothic) romance novels collectively called Moonlit Wings.  I have four books finished and one published at the time of this update.  I am putting up the link to the website in case anyone's interested in checking them out.  All will be available in time as both printed books and ebooks.  I can honestly say, if you enjoyed my fanfiction, you will enjoy these books.  They are written with a lot of the same elements. 
I won't say this is the final update for this site because I know better.  Something may happen to turn things around for me.  A movie would be nice.  But I'm not holding my breath.  I'm still waiting for Ms. Hamilton's people to email me a cease and desist order.

Wow!  I haven't updated this site since 2008!  Partly because I was having problems with Trellix/Tripod on the new server and partly because I've been busy writing.  I started an original series of books--I have three completed at the time of this update--that I'm calling the Moonlit Wings series.  I'm going to publish them on the ebook site Smashwords in time, so y'all have to go check them out.  The first book should be uploaded in a couple of months.  It's called Cemetery Moon.  I'm very excited about this series and have been devoting most of time to it.  Which is why I've decided to post my final ABVH fanfiction: St. Louis' Own Jim Morrison.  Consider it my swan song to this fandom, but then again, I hate to say never again.  To all my very devoted, loyal fans out there, please read it and let me know what you think.  It's one of those you are either going to hate or love....
One more update to this site before I go: I've removed the music.  I discovered people were stealing the mp3 from the site and out of respect for NIN, I have taken it down.  Besides, the last thing I need right now is the FBI accusing me of file sharing.  Good grief!
Til next time.  Maybe.

Well I've updated--sorta. I changed the picture of me on the bio page and I'm writing this, but that's it. I'm not sure if there will be any more updates to this site after this. I hate to say "never" though as who knows what the future may bring. The site still sees lots of traffic so I'll keep it up, current and functioning, but I don't think I'll be adding any new content--for a couple of reasons:

One, I haven't been inspired to write or draw anything in this fandom for awhile now. My passion for it has definitely waned. Second, Tripod has changed its sitebuilder so much, I don't think I could figure out how to add something new even if I wanted to.

Thank you all for your kind comments about this site and its content over the years. I've met some pretty fantastic people because of Purple Passions and I certainly don't regret all the time and effort that went into building it. I hope it continues to bring enjoyment to all the ABVH fans who visit it for years to come.

Happy Labor Day!

This update is more for maintenance than anything. By chance I discovered almost half the links to other ABVH sites I provided no longer work. I took down the ones that I had no new url for, assuming the site no longer exists, and corrected the urls on the sites I was provided a new url for.

I also fixed the music. I turn it off while I'm updating because it gets too annoying with all the page skipping I do and apparently I forgot to turn it back on. This too was discovered by chance.

Please, anyone who visits here in the future, should you discover a problem with a link or the general function of this site, be so kind as to let me know about it. If no one else is going to care about this site, why should I?

I'm still here, sportsfans. As a matter of fact, I recently finished the latest novel in the series, The Harlequin. Not great, but not bad to the point I'll more than likely pick up the next one and read it too. I'm also "hanging in there" as far as the fandom goes. I still hear from other fans now and then and have maintained enough interest of my own to keep up this site.

So without further ado, I have a small update for those of you sticking it out with me. I was commissioned earlier this year to do a new, full-body portrait of Damian. You may find the finished product on the artwork page under the title, Damian Reclining.

Also after almost a year of being nominated, I was recently informed that my fic "Wicked Ways" had in fact won in its category. I have the winning banner posted on the awards page for your admiring pleasure.

That's it for now. Feel free to contact me should you have any comments, questions, whatever regarding this site and its contents. You know I love to hear from you.

Til next time,

It's...what the hell is the date today anyway? Oh right, May 12th.

An update in less than six months! Rejoice all! Two new fics up as well in the fanfiction 2 archive by yours truly. One is called Sugar-N-Spice and features everyone's fave child vampire, Valentina. The second I wrote for my lovely and talented friend Shadow of the Stain in exchange for a fic she wrote for me. (Hopefully upon completion I will be able to post that here as well.) This fic is called Black Coffee and features Caleb and an original female character created and based on Shade much like the character Calica was. Very naughty fic. Had to put an NC-17 rating on that one so if you're underage, please enjoy S-N-S instead.

I'm still learning the new html additions to Tripod sitebuilder and although they're not perfect looking, they are readable. I've had them up on the PDS fanfiction site for awhile and am about to take them down from there so if you haven't read them yet, here's your chance.

No new art I'm afraid 'cause the scanner is still on the fritz. I am drawing, I just can't load anything. Hopefully the birthday fairy will see fit to deliver me a new one since the b-day is just around the corner.

Till next time,

Hello again!

It's been awhile since I've done a "proper" update, I know. I do have a few new trinkets added this time that I think will be enjoyed.

First is a little fic I stumbled across by the vastly talented Marasmine called "Tomorrows". This is a simple little fic centered around Damian and Nathaniel. Told from Damian's POV, it gives the readers an insightful look at how someone like Damian feels about being metaphysically tied to someone like Nathaniel. Very well-written.

I also have a new link added to my collection. This is a roleplaying site--something I have not featured here before--called "Pomme De Sang". Not to be confused with the fanfic site of the same name. The writing there is good and the scenarios are intriguing.

Check out both the new fic and new link, and as always, questions, comments, feedback: contact me.

Till next time,

Happy new year to all! Just a small update this time as I received a banner to post for an award my fic "Wicked Ways" is up for. You can view it on the Awards, Adoptions, Etc. page.

Not much else going on at the moment. My scanner's down, so I can't post any new art (even if I had any!) And no fics presently in the works. I know there's some good fanfic out there by other authors that I would like to put up in the favorites section, but just haven't gotten around to it yet. Soon though. I promise.

Till next time,

Happy Holidays! Don't eat too much turkey now.

But if you do, don't worry. I have some shiny new content for that after-dinner-down-time you're going to need to help the digestion.

No new art this update, but I do have a couple of new fics for your reading pleasure.

Happiness. I've seemed to found my way back to my word processor. The result: "The Detente" which takes place a short time following NIC, and is rated NC-17. In it, the Nimir-Raj develops an infatuation of sorts for Asher. (Canonical liberties were taken, so consider yourself warned.)

The second fic is by the wondrous and talented Ruas called "1749". Belle Morte and company travel to Morvoren's stronghold on business. This story tells of Damian and Jean-Claude's first encounter. Please do not be daunted by the length of this piece. It is so well-written, you'll be hooked by the second paragraph. I certainly was. Check it out on the Fanfiction Favorites Archive page.

I changed the music back to "A Warm Place" only because some of you felt "Leaving Hope" was too long and too distracting. I did discover the Active X pop-up is also generated by the presence of the background music. If enough of you find that as annoying as I do, please let me know. I might just do away with the background music--as much as I'd hate to--because that pop-up is driving me insane. On the other hand, if it doesn't perturb anyone else, I'll just learn to live with it. Cue feedback.

Shamefully, I still have not read Danse Macabre, Micah, or the new anthology that's out (the title of which escapes me), but perhaps that's why I'm still writing, still updating, and generally hanging in there. Still hoping the series comes around eventually I guess. You know me, ever the optimist.

Please note: following this update, I will no longer be sending out email update notifications. I will be posting notices of updates in my LiveJournal http://www.livejournal.com/users/beellegee/. The reason for this being the list has grown to an unmanageable size. Also, with the changes in my email service, the infrequent updates, and the ever-shifting fan base making half the list--if not more--obsolete, it doesn't seem worth the trouble to me.

Till next time. Enjoy!!

Feedback anyone?  Paranoir2@yahoo.com
