OH MY PASTA, I WANT TO WRITE...
Anybody got cliffs notes for The Sequel? I'm so painfully verbose! It'll take hours to read it and refresh it!
EDIT (08.27.2015 ll 0349 Hours): I WROTE! Look! See?! I actually posted a chapter! I actually made good on a self-imposed deadline! Holy expletive, Batman, this calls for a freaking party!
As an aside, has anyone else noticed that I do most of my profile updates between 3AM and 4AM? Seriously. This hasn't changed at all in the past ten years. When it comes to insomnia, I'm nothing if not consistent, I guess.
(09.26.2013) (0340 Hours)
So...as you may have noticed, I've updated The Sequel for the first time in over four years. *looks around* Yup.
I also realized that it's still rated Teen...odd.
I wonder how many of my old friends are still here...

Hey, people who love me enough to check out my super-special-awesome (read: ineffectual) profile page!
Man, has it really been four years? Time sure flies, my friends. I'm sure many of you have moved on, but if there's anyone still out there who likes my writing I just wanted to pop in and let you all know that I've opened an account over at FictionPress for my original work. It's linked to my FFNet account, so I'm still Cyh Scaevola over there. My first work, Avenari, will be available there, and the prologue is already up. I hope you enjoy it.
As for The Sequel, I've had the next chapter hanging in limbo for a long, long time. I think I really just need to re-read the whole thing and get the spark back, but at the moment I'm so psyched over my book again that I can't stay focused long enough for the fanfic. It's not dead yet, though. I still miss my characters. If you do decide to read Avenari, you'll find that a lot of those characters are similar to my OCs.
Thank you, all of you. You made me so happy with all of your reviews and words of encouragement. I'm still around, so hopefully I'll see you again. Much love.

LOQUACIOUSNESS...In which I explain my avatar.
Say hello to Gintoki, everyone! He's the main character in Gintama. I adore him unequivocally, because he is silly. In fact, if Yumoa's mental age went from five to thirty, he would probably act and look exactly like Gin-chan here. Watch Gin-chan. Why? Because he will make you laugh until your brain falls out. Obviously.
Oh, and I made that avatar with two screencaps. One from ep 126 as Gin-chan tries to make a peir of glasses pose for the camera, and gets terrible results, and the other from the title screen with the GinTama kanji.
It's so...cute... o_o;
(end rant/ramble/word vomit)
"Math...damn the Byzantine Empire and their voodoo number systems! A curse upon the Mayans who mock me with their calendar! I SHALL CONQUER THE DERIVATIVE IF IT'S THE LAST THING I DO!! (shakes fist at sky)"
(=_= # I apologize to the ancestors of the aforementioned ancient civilizations. My pain is not your fault.)
Note to TIG and TS readers:
When I use the names of non-Saiyuki-derived gods and goddesses, the names are interchangeable between Greek and Roman names (i.e., if the Romans changed them). The Romans took most of their gods from the Greeks, and simply gave them new names. So, as a result, Venus was the Roman version of Aphrodite, Jupiter was Zeus, Vulcan was Hephaestus (AND Venus'/Aphrodite's husband! (?!)), Neptune was Poseidon, Mars was Ares, et cetera. (You may note that the planets in our solar system are named after the ROMAN versions.) Most of the gods had two names, from the Greeks and the Romans. The only purely Roman gods were the Lares and Penates (ancestral gods, mostly), and Janus, the two-faced god of doorways. (If the doors to the temple of Janus were open, it meant that the empire/Republic was at war. Closed meant peace.) (Did you know that a janitor was originally a Roman doorman? "Janua" means "door" in Latin. "January" is the door to the next year. Cool, eh?)
Heh...I miss being the queen of Latin/Ancient Roman trivia...
And for the sake of clarification, the names I use vary according to which civilization was the last to worship that particular god or goddess. Therefore, Venus uses her Roman name, but Eris keeps her Greek name. Eris doesn't get enough credit, if you ask me. She rocked. Oh, and the gods prefer to refer to eachother by their Greek names...because that was what they were accustomed to for a very long time, before Quirinus/Romulus killed his brother for a hill of birds and created the ancient empire whose rulers eventually degenerated into madmen and murderers. Damn, I love this stuff!
EDIT: To those of you who recall the infectious Elizabethian accents which plagued the characters in TIG, google "Foreign Accent Syndrome". XD I invented something that actually exists! Over at UCF, Dr. Jack Ryalls is the one who gets the most press about it. It's FASCINATING.
x(_;)xx(_;)xx(_;)xx(_;)xx(_;)x STATS x(_;)xx(_;)xx(_;)xx(_;)xx(_;)x
Name: Cyh Scaevola (SIGH sky-VOLE-uh) (Scaevola is Latin for "left-handed", which means I'm the evil twin; and Cyh is like that thing you do when you're exasperated with someone.)
No, it's not my real name. Why the hell would I tell you something so boring?
Age: 20. It happened.
Height: 5'3". Formerly 5'4", but the doctors say otherwise now...I'M SHRINKING!! SHRINKING!! (cries inside)
Familial Status: Firstborn, AKA, "the Guinea Pig" (glares at father for wanting a girl first)
Other Notes (About My Writing): Umm...nobody writes like I do. Maybe if Douglas Adams, Quentin Tarantino, Hannibal Lecter, Laurell K. Hamilton, JCV, Tom Stoppard, Juvenal, and Sigmund Freud had a bastard love child, that kid might write the way I do, but other than that painfully remote possibility--that's far too many chromosomes for any normal Homo sapiens!--I'm fairly unique in my cupboard. Also, I tend to write long stories. Mostly because I become enamored of my characters--they're fun to hang with, so sue me! I also like series. It lets me play with different ideas for my real books. (smirk) Just you wait. Someday I'll get published and you'll see my penname on all the bookstore shelves!! Muahahahahahahahaaaah!
Authors: L. K. Hamilton, Jhonen Vasquez, Stephanie Meyer, Douglas Adams, Tom Stoppard, Thomas Harris (he wrote Hannibal Rising), Chuck Palahniuk, R.A. Salvatore, Anne Rice, Juvenal (to you laymen, he was one of the most intriguing, angry old satirists you'll ever see), and Homer (he was into the gory imagery, that one) ...et cetera...

Random:Chicken adobo (see TIG chapter 7), lumpia, sinagang--I'm a Filipino food addict. Mountain Dew is the Nectar of the Irony Gods. I really like trees and birds and dragonflies. And cats. And snakes. And the crazy colors at sunset. And staying up until sunrise. And the night sky at 4 AM. And drawing and painting and Photoshopping (CS2). And learning languages like Latin, Spanish, Tagalog, and Japanese. And living all over the world. Living in Japan. (...sigh...) And listening to music so pretty that I feel like I'm gonna cry, so I get all mad at myself, but then the music makes me happy again, and the vicious cycle spins until I either run out of sanity or the song ends...
Yeah, that's about it.

The Irony Gods (PG-13): COMPLETE. PLEASE REVIEW THE LAST CHAPTER!
Notes: I'll eventually be reposting some of the crap near the beginning, 'cause I'm not completely satisfied with the delivery. Also, I'm planning on doing a few Omake chapters, just for fun.
The Sequel (PG-13...except for Ch16, which is MATURE to da MAX): Ch 29: Kon and Lyds chat WITH THEIR MINDS! Comedy retrieves meds. Gojyo gets strangled for saving a girl's life. Sanzo gets run over with a scooter. Man driving scooter seeks time machine in vending machine. Girl with giant dog threatens to get rid of the witnesses. Gyokumen Koushu lands yet another god. Konran remains AWOL, presumably kidnapped by alien goat-beasts from Uranus.
Notes: There's a pairing, but it has nothing to do with the cannons execpt as a method to incite humor and make Gojyo be a "Love Doctor". Why? Because it's different, and I just can't see the boys getting into any serious relationships the way they are now.
Transvestites. That's all I'm gonna say.
"Spawn of the Sequel" You may interpret that as you wish. (snicker)

Konran: Chaos Incarnate. Greek god. 6'2". Raven hair to shoulders. Phthalocyanine, glowing eyes. Disorganized. Obsessive compulsive. Schizophrenic. Invades Lydia's bed every night. Totally adores Lydia. Hates being lawn furniture. Age 2000-2500.

Regina Invisamorarum: Lydia's Clone. Platinum blonde. Sea green irises. Irritating as HELL. Pushy. Noisy. Loves Kon, but he hates her with a passion. Hates Lydia, who returns the feeling with gusto.
NOTE: Venus, Eris, Hermes, Aries, et cetera...don't count as OCs. I didn't invent them, ergo they are not mine, and you may use them sans my permission. I do, however, own the personalities which I have concocted for them. Mine. No touchie.
Please let me know what y'alls think, whether by PM or in the midst of a review! I love feedback!
CHARACTER PORTRAITS IN MIXED CLOTHING:
(I'll be making more eventually.)
Special thanks to all my readers for making me enjoy writing again--for a minute there I was worried that I had lost my love for it. If you keep reviewing, I'll keep writing! Please enjoy The Sequel!
