An Appeal for Help
I would like to make an appeal to you -- that is, any readers of my stories who like Yu-Gi-Oh! especially anyone who likes Dan Green's characterization of Yugi and Yami. Dan Green (also known as Jay Snyder) welcomed two beautiful children into the world November 2011. Tragically, his wife, Michal Lura Friedman, lost her life that same day, due to complications from the delivery. Dan Green is now faced with raising his two children without the companionship and help from his wife. Of course he has direct support from his family and friends, but we fans can help, too.
(In case this website decides to eat links and web addresses again, please use your favorite search engine on the term 'Snyder Twins'. The website should be in the first few links. If it is talking about Jay Snyder, Michal Lura Friedman, Reverie Vivian and Jackson James, it's the correct one.)
If you like the characters Dan Green's helped bring to life through his voice work, if the story of what happened touches you as it does me, and if the pictures of the twins inspire you to action, please consider helping out, if the circumstances in you life permit you to.
A little about me...
Reading and writing are two of my favorite hobbies. I also play RPG video games and watch anime. (And a fair number of other activities, but they don't impact my writing as much.) Among my favorite authors are Edgar Allan Poe, Christopher Stasheff, Hideyuki Kikuchi, Dick Francis, Isaac Asimov, and Ambrose Bierce.
Xenogears, Chrono Trigger, the Final Fantasy games (currently playing FFIV for the DS, FFIV: The After Years, and Dissidia Final Fantasy) and the mostly panned Saga Frontier are my favorite RPG video games, though I like most RPGs that Squaresoft has released. Castlevania: Symphony of the Night is another favorite video game of mine too.
Among the anime titles I enjoy are: Card Captor Sakura, Weiss Kreuz, Vampire Hunter D (and Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust), Master of Mosquiton, Petshop of Horrors, Yu-Gi-Oh (and Yu-Gi-Oh Capsule Monsters), Nightwalker, D.N. Angel, Bakuretsu Hunters, Pretear, Fruits Basket, Samurai Deeper Kyo, Black Blood Brothers, Sorcerer Stabber Orphen, and the first season of Fushigi Yuugi. Poetry is usually therapy for me, as it's a way for me to distill emotions I feel too deeply into a form a little easier to bear.
I'm still working on all 'in progress' stories no matter how long they've been static. My job is a stressful and hectic one, that sometimes gets in the way of writing. The best way I've found for me to handle the dreaded 'writer's block' is to keep writing -- something else -- so I write wherever the current inspiration leads. That doesn't mean I've abandoned any story posted here, just that solid inspiration (solid enough to spark writing worthy of being posted) hasn't come back to it, yet.
The empty space between "Once upon a time..." and "...they lived happily ever after." (even when those aren't the exact words used) is my favorite playground. Play with me? Reviews, comments and critiques are always welcome, including negative ones, as long as they are helpful. Please, feel free to contact me and offer feedback on my writing, as I need all the help I can get!
Thank you, to all you brave souls, who read my stories. Thank you, twice over, to anyone who reads and leaves a review, or PMs me with feedback.
:many grateful bows:
03/25/2009 -- In response to an anonymous review I received on one of my stories -- At one point I had scene breaks clearly indicated in my stories, before fanfiction.net decided to not permit a short string of dashes within submissions. Also, whenever fanfiction.net changes what is and is not permitted as far as punctuation goes, it tends to go in and randomly 'eat' commas, periods and quotemarks from my stories. One of these days I might go in and try to fix the damage done by this process, but it seems rather pointless to do so until fanfiction.net settles on what is permitted once and for all. My apologies that this makes my stories more difficult to read. I dislike the way a horizontal ruler looks in stories, and that seems to be the only way fanfiction.net allows anything along the lines of a scene break aside from a rather lame sort of 'later that day' tag (which would work in a play, I suppose, but really ought not to be in a story).
12/02/2008 UPDATE -- The National Novel Writing Month challenge is behind me, and I won! For this year's challenge, I decided to work on Bloodstone Chronicles, the massive VHD/Castlevania story that's been kicking around in the back of my head for a few years now. Even though I've written over 50,000 words in this story, it is nowhere near ready to be posted. Anyone who's done the NaNoWriMo challenge knows what I mean, as it's all about getting the word count in only thirty days. Characters do weird things when you are under the gun like that, and the plot sort of took on a mind of its own. It's not a bad thing -- at all -- but the editing process is going to take a while. On the plus side, the story's DONE so there won't be a few chapters posted and then nothing for a long time. Another plus, it shows me where CastleDvania needs to go, so I can finish it. There will be some tweaking of that story (Caludra is formally introduced in Bloodstone Chronicles, so I need to adjust or eliminate the mention of her in CastleDvania, for example) but I want to use my momentum from NaNoWriMo to finish writing, and finish posting, CastleDvania. Just be aware that I'm going to have to change some of what's already been written in that story.
Fifty plus entries here. Oops? When did that happen? To make matters worse, they are all jumbled together in order of submission, making it hard for readers to follow the fandom(s) they prefer. I love it when someone who finds he (or she) likes my writing in one fandom takes that leap of faith to read something I've written in a fandom he (she) is not acquainted with. I'm humbled and honored whenever a reader places that sort of trust in me, and those brave people are the readers I treasure most. Still, if dark, angsty half-vampires are your cup of tea, it could become tedious wading through light-hearted Card Captor Sakura stories to find the next Vampire Hunter D or Castlevania story. So, wonderful readers, I hope my 'story trees' can make it easier to find the stories you want to read. Related stories, or sequels will be presented in the recommended reading order, too.
