"I rarely curse" and "I'm only in a bad mood. Honestly!" says Kagome from LADSS.
Update (5/18/13): Hello, everybody, I LIVE, BUT SOON, I WILL NOT, BECAUSE NEXT WEEK IS FINALS WEEK AND EVERYBODY IS GOING TO DIE. My friends are going to die, my teachers are going to die, my family and the surrounding area is going to die - FINALS WEEK WILL KILL ALL OF US IN MULTIPLE WAYS.
I am planning to update something before the end of the month, so I'll probably do it sometime on Friday since I have to work the next morning before leaving to Disneyland with family. (We've been hosting an exchange student from Russia this year, and my family is determined to show her Disney before she goes back. And then this next week, my art freak sister is convinced I need shoes based off of my favorite Disney movie before we leave, which means I'll be busy with that, work, studying, and packing up for our trip.)
I'll be back on June 1st, and magically, have decided that all of June will be catch-up-on-FFN month. I'll still have work, but I decided to put off summer school in July just so that I could focus on my writing during June. I'm hoping to finish Midnight Snack, Myakuhaku, and Three Words during that time and update everything else at least three times (but we'll see about that, considering Frame Up chapters are a freaking nightmare to write since every chapter is about 10,000 words long). Also, even when I return to school in July, I'm planning to try to wrap up Déjà Entendu and The Rainy Season (mainly because my brain keeps connecting the moods of the those two together and I promised after posting Rainy that I would finish it before the end of that specific year's rainy season). Also, if I don't finish up Myakuhaku in June like promised, that and Red will also be periodically updated with DE and Rainy
Anyway, just wanted to inform you that I was still alive and not giving up on fanfiction. I may be a bit disconnected with it, but I still want to finish my works, no matter how long it takes. (I'm also thinking of removing the A/N I added to my stories because, holy biscuits, does it sound lame.)
Update (4/14/13): I LIVE! *spazzes* Sorry for the lack of any news whatsoever...if any of you had the mind to stalk my profile, that is. Anyway, I thought I would reveal that while taking a very long test today, I had plenty of time to think about my fanfiction, and I think I'm steadily getting back on track with How to Lose. I've also been thinking of other fanfictions recently and how to go about writing them, and I think these are all good signs. Though I might not have time to get any writing done this week (though this upcoming weekend, I can probably do something productive) due to work and school, I really do hope to write something before the month is over. Also, I thought I would go ahead and mention that I'm probably only taking summer school in July this year, which means that June would be a good time to focus again on writing while I can.
Either way, I'll try to do my best this year with my return to FFN. Hope everyone is doing decent right now (and preferably that no one feels like killing me due to my extremely delayed updates). Ganbarimasu; mata ne!
Update (3/17/13): I have recently got a part-time job, I'm about to get my license, and the thought of further education is making me want to vomit at this rate, but I'm still not really feeling the fanfiction thing. However, I did realize the cause of it: I am no longer in touch with the characters, as in, not even my versions of them, but the actual canon characters; the series feels like a stranger to me. This sounds bad, but it's actually good since I know now how to go about writing my fanfiction again. If you messaged or reviewed within the past year and I haven't replied, I apologize; I have your messages bookmarked and will eventually get around to replying lest they be something small and quick I could comment on. Outside of that, you will have a reply eventually (if you even care by then). For right now, I'll go ahead and tell you my current stance on stories:
LADSS: It will get done eventually. I have the feeling if I reread it, eat a shitload of chocolate, drink buckets of Mountain Dew, and forget all of my morals and manners, I will be able to type up a chapter of this. It will probably be a lot easier than I made it sound, actually. However, there are a lot of things I'm uncertain about (such as an awkwardly written masturbation scene and its aftermath), so that might be scrapped. ...Just saying.
How to Lose: FFFFFFF, I don't even remember how I got into the mood to write this. I have the feeling with the right music (and after rereading it), typing this up will be no problem.
SoulMate: ...uh...I have a few sentences? If I listen to the right music and reread it all... Yeah. I'll probably get some chapters done. I think if I also do more research about lovely urban legends and keep in mind this story has the rare pairing of Nobunaga/Tsuyu, that I'll get through it in no time.
OMUS: I honestly believe that updating myself on what I parodied, listening to InuYasha songs, and rewatching some episodes (or playing that sweet-ass RPG for the PS2) will help remind me how ridiculous this parody was. In all, immersing and poisoning myself all over again seems to be the only solution, even if my eyes turn red from crying from all the SWEET, BEAUTIFUL NOSTALGIA...!
Frame Up: LOL, how did I even write this. (Oh, right, I watched too much Bones, action movies, and NCIS and- Fuck.) Hell, I don't know. Probably just listening to bad-ass music and rereading my case notes - OH MY GOD, L.A. NOIRE MAY HELP MY MUSE WITH THIS - can help me write this one.
Colors: FFFFFFFFFFFFFF, I'll get back to you later on this. Because even though everything was just so awesome in this story and it was so...so stupid, I'm wondering how I exactly want things to flow in a few chapters.
Red/Myakuhaku: I could probably write this if I got into the right mood, which seems impossible, but since I'm thinking of cutting them down some, it's really just planning out chapters and finding the tone of these stories again.
Midnight Snack: This was so hilarious that I don't even remember what I did outside of listening to dirty music and making perverted jokes during this time. Honestly, anime-patriot isn't really feeling the story anymore (IT'S ALL MY FAULT, BLAME ME FOR EVERYTHING), but whether she joins back on with the project or not, I will finish this eventually. Maybe rekindle her into just writing the sex and then twist my own sick sense of humor into it. Who knows.
Rainy Season: Again, another part of this is just remembering what kind of tone I used while writing this. I want it to sound as great as it did the first chapter, and I want to keep the same atmosphere I did before, so mainly what I need to do is get into a certain mindset and let the words come to me. ...aka, I don't know what the hell I'm doing.
Three Words: THIS WILL BE EASY. I SWEAR. I just need to find time to write it as well as remember exactly how everything was going to play out.
Déjà Entendu: Holy shit, I didn't realize how many stories I had ongoing until JUST NOW. I'm not that far into it because I'm having trouble with Sess's particular personality and how to explain everything that's happened; however, I think finding the voice will be easy again, though I'll have to remember where I wanted to exactly go with the story line.
That seems to be about it. Let me say it again: I do plan to get shit done, maybe post new stuff, but I am rather busy with getting my life together and my future on track. Let's just hope we're not all dead by the time I get my touch back!
Update (11/24/12): Happy late Thanksgiving, everyone!
Holy shit, have I literally done nothing with my life outside of fangirling over Japanese celebrities, BL manga/anime, trying to do well in school, and neglecting duties such as getting a job or driver's license. (I'd rather learn to bike my way around town and die of too much exercise than drive, honestly.) I had a five day weekend (meaning Wednesday through Friday, I had absolutely nothing going on), but I somehow neglected to work on my stories. I gave it some consideration, but that quickly went out the window in favor of earlier mentioned fangirling and video gaming.
HOWEVER, I do plan to get shit done. Eventually. Just not sure when. Some poor attempts of mine to reconnect with stories have been listening to their old playlists, HOWEVER, Grooveshark is a bitch and deleted most of the music on those during my absence. Which sucks. Which means I have to steadily remember every song on those playlists...
Which means I have to put effort into something. (THE HORROR.)
So far, I'm having trouble just connecting with my stories on a basic level, but I'm sure if I were to reread stories with only a few chapters, I'd easily catch on and be able to take over for them. This means I will hopefully have some new things written for Deja Entendu, Three Words, The Rainy Season, Red, The Colors to One's Soul, and maybe one of my longer fics, though LADSS might take a while (considering while trying to brainstorm for it, I forgot what the secret in the story was -.-').
I'm super-sure at this point I will probably post nothing new to this account outside of random inspiration. If I do feel like posting something in the future, good for me, you know, getting back on the ol' bandwagon, but I doubt I will have multiple fictions going on (at least, I feel this way at the moment).
On a side note, my birthday is coming up on the 30th, and I'm ready to jump out of my window from happiness because of all the Japanese stuff I might get (don't worry, I live on the first floor and won't die from getting overexcited. Ever).
By the way, if you wish to contact me through email, feel free to do so; my address is email@example.com.
