Okay everyone, I realize that I have quite literally not updated in half a year. My life has been on a rollercoaster ride downhill. However, I am in the process of updating everything. To help me out, I need all of my wonderful DZ authors to provide me with some details when they send a fic.
1) Author's name, e-mail address for reviews.
2) Summary of your fic! This is *very* important! I know I used to make them for some of you, but unfortunately I cannot continue doing that.
3) Rating and a category (ie. Romance, Drama etc).
4) Disclaimer! Everyone so far has been excellent about this. Remember, I don't want you guys to get sued!
5) Please note that I will no longer beta fics. Read them over. Have a friend read them. Use spell check. For serious writers out there, getting more than one beta is an excellent idea.
Well, happy writing to all of you!

::ducks barrage of rotten eggs:: I'm sorry guys!! I know it's been a long time between updates, but bear with me! I've just started college (go Blue Devils!) and I'm still getting used to things here. I've tried to update but Tripod keeps erasing apostrophes and quotation marks, and I don't think authors would be very happy if I posted a mangled version of their work here. So I'm working on that. Hopefully there'll be a good update soon . . .

Long time between updates, eh? Don't worry, I'm still alive, it's just been a slow month for Dead Zone fiction. But never fear, "The Photograph" and "Visions from Afar" have been updated, so make sure to drop those authors a line. :)
In other news, for those of you Neopians who have been trying to neomail me recently, tragedy struck a few weeks ago. My account was hacked, 300,000 neopoints and my pet, Skandranon842 were stolen. Must . . . control . . . anger . . . ::breathes:: Fortunately the perpetrator of this crime has been frozen. Unfortunately, all the pets that he had were also frozen, including Skan. And before you ask, no, I didn't give my password to anyone. ::glares:: So I'm steering clear of Neopets for a while.
Hmm, don't want to end on a depressing note. ::Searches for good news:: Good news . . . good news . . . aha! The Celestial Toybox fanzine is finally out, check it out, it has one of my stories in there. The next time the 'zine is collecting fiction I'll be sure to let ya'll know again so you can submit your fics. :)
