So, did she make a choice here, or did Shinjis influence just make change happen to her? I'd say the latter, you'd say the former. I think thats a fair assesment, do you agree? And I think we can just leave it at that, although I'd be happy to continue this discussion in private.
I'd read your smut as well, if you need feedback. Sorry to hear that you're stuck with the other project. By the way, is there a place where I can find all your works in their latest incarnation? Google gives mixed results, sometimes linking to stuff thats out of date.
