Author has written 3 stories for Breath of Fire, and Alundra.
Current news: 28th October 2012
Now that we're in the final quarter of year 2012, I can safely say that... it's been a bad writing year. I mean, I haven't even gotten a story ready to be posted this year!
While I was in a writing slump with Legaia, I started a new project to get some writing going (that was what some sites online suggested); Azure Dreams was to be a one-shot novelisation collection in everyone's point-of-view except the protagonist. It was a great idea in my head, but unfortunately the execution totally cut off my writing ability instead of fueling it. Now, more than half a year of forced writing and frustration, I've made the difficult decision to drop this one-shot collection... and now I have nothing to show to you guys. Sorry about that. T_T
Well, I guess I'm going to take a bit of a break and maybe try my luck at random short stories for the rest of the year. And hey, since it's almost November, maybe I'll end up participating in NaNoWriMo!
And hopefully Legaia doesn't get delayed anymore. xP
Update Note: Updates will (usually) be done on every weekend, except for days I deem special (like my birthday!). However, unannounced delays may occur due to unforeseen circumstances. If I'm not currently updating a story, be patient, one is coming soon. With my single-track mind, however, the question is... how soon?

Work in Progress:
Legend of Legaia (Game)
Growlanser V (PS2 Game)
1. A uber Dragon lover. So don’t expect a story with purely evil Dragons! Oh, and a cat lover too. xP
2. A female (mostly RPG previously but now random) gamer. A bit rare still, no?
3. A great lover of Wild Arms composer Michiko Naruke’s music! But I like music from other games too. :D Current favourite song: Gentle Hands from .hack//G.U..
4. A Chinese in Southeast Asia! Surprised?
5. Unfortunately easily distracted. When the PS3 came, there was no writing until I finished Assassin's Creed 2 and Brotherhood at 100%. x_x
6. Used to be an anime fan... but now just an occasional manga reader. Really, anime episodes are now too longwinded, I can at least go at my own pace with manga!
7. Not to be confused with another FF.net author called estrelita. Despite having the same name, we’re not related in any way and we’ve been using this name for some time prior to joining FF.net! (I think, at least I do.)
...a lot of novelisations. Why novelisations?
I'm one of the type who is easy to be moved by game soundtracks. Whenever I listen to soundtracks of a particular game, memories of that game will come rushing into me and I'd feel like revisiting the game again, only that I prefer to read when I don't feel like replaying the game. Unfortunately, a lot of my favourite games don't have a complete novelisation. When I feel like going through a game story again, I'd search for a novelisation... only to find it's not completed. Okay, so I'd search for a game script... and find that there's not even one. x_x
So I decided to take matters into my own hands!
Some games already have official (Japanese) novelisations and manga, for example: Tales series and Suikoden series. While I can't read Japanese novels, I do read English scanlated manga online. I find that these manga tend to rush too much... probably due to the page / volume limitations. So for these games, I still might novelise them... but don't get your hopes too high. xP
It's like a tribute to the games, for gamers and non-gamers alike to enjoy the deep storyline that each of the games present. :D
