Author has written 9 stories for Rurouni Kenshin.
Dear lord this page is in need of a serious tune up.
Jesus, the last update was from fucking '09 (and I can tell since I still used that idiom "epic fail" which I forbid myself from saying now). I am such a screw up.
Well now that I've admitted that, I'm pleased to announce that in the coming days, the next chapter of "Viscid" will be released, at last.
Even though I've been telling myself this for the past two years.
You have to understand, during this Little Dark Age, I've done a lot of growing up. That, and I've since taken a creative writing class which I've learned a lot from. In so doing, I began to realize that I've sort of "grown out" of writing fan fiction (though I still enjoy reading them). So, my realization: I'm probably going to stop using pre-existing works as my vehicle for creativity, or at least not do it very often from now on. It's sad to think about, but all good stuff has to come to an end. It's sort of funny how active people were - as well as myself - on the RuroKen fanfic database, and how we complained about those who did not update regularly, but oddly enough, a lot of the fanfics that I waited for an update from have yet to come, even though nearly two years have passed...
So, I guess that's it. I'll probably mind as well just delete Beauty and Battousai, and as for the rest - ew. You know when you go through boxes of your old writings from years back, and you can only gag at your past dialogue and what was running through your mind back then?
That's all for now folks. See you soon.
Okay. Explaination time.
So, after asking my brother a bajillion times to order that damned enclosure case for me, he still hasn't. Yeah. Older brothers with credit cards = THE MOST EPIC OF FAIL. So without further adieu, here is what is going to happen (I predict):
1. I won't offically begin my continuation of my previous fanfics until my brother orders me that thinga-majig. His deadline is 11:59 p.m. December 31, 2009 (PRONTO). Until then, I will jot down light notes, because at this point, I forgot some stuff that wasn't saved and I don't know whether they were important or not, so if I have any chance of recovery my old data, I hope to compare the two notes.
2. I have, however, officially begun a new fanfic which is in the works right now. Hopefully, it will be up in a week or two. It's that time of year again (school), and since I don't have anything else distracting me (except for school work), and since I'm stuck in the library nearly all day, I'm back in action. Plus, I'm taking creative writing this semester. _
Cya soon. Hopefully.
Well, I think I'm slowly going through the stage of "acceptance", but still retaining a small glimmer of hope in recovering my files from my old hard drive. I've since started using my laptap again (it's allowed in my room again), and I have replaced the files that I have saved onto my flash drive onto the new hard drive, and I have taken the precaution of saving directly onto my hard drive when doing school work. However, I have not opened any of my fanfic files, with the exceptions of "Viscid" and "River of Stars". School will be out for this semester in 2-3 weeks, and I'm not taking any spring or summer courses, so aside from job hunting, I can get back to writing. Though, I will not continue my previous fics until I know for sure if I can recover my drafts or not. If I can, I will resume as usual. If I can't, then I guess I'll just have to re-brainstorm even harder. :) I guess what I'm most afraid of is that I'll rewrite somes some segments to my fics, but I'll leave something out that I really wanted to include. But even though Rurouni Kenshin is not my brainchild, I hold all of my fics to my heart (even Beauty and Battousai; I still dearly want to revamp that fic), and they are always on my mind, alongside other fresh ideas for other fanfics, so even if I do start where I last saved last December, I'm sure I won't have too much difficulty.
To give myself some motivation for when I start back on my fae-based fics (speaking of "Viscid" and "River of Stars"), I have since gotten a ton more pagan-oriented music that really puts me in the spirit of writing those particular fics... As a matter of fact, I was listening to my Fairy and Pagan playlists when I first started writing "Viscid", so I really hope that will lift my spirits. For the meantime, I do have other ideas for some one-shots (I've gotten some more mythological/folkloric references, and ever since I started on "Viscid" and my fantasy/horror one-shots, I've been wanting to write some one-shots centered around other characters of RuroKen, like YahikoxTsubame and SanoxMegumi. I already have the myth inspiration for each, but I won't give you too much detail ;) ) and knowing me, I'm going to get bored when studying for final exams, so I might get on that between now and May, so look forward for whatever may come!
So this is what it all comes down too. My hard drive finally decided to fuck up on me, and even though I backed up all of original documents (rough drafts and such), all updated documents are locked on my old hard drive, which I currently cannot access. Yep. That's how the shitty cookie crumbles. All stories, lecture notes, screenshots and music are - not coming back at the moment.
In theory, I still have everything: I still have a lot of my music on my old 20 media player (but I couldn't fit everything on it), and all of my fics are on my flash drive. But I forgot when the last time I re-uploaded my files onto my flash drive, and I updated a lot of notes since then (I told myself that I would re-upload every week, but ever since winter semester started I didn't have the time). I could start from scratch, but, I'm kind of going through the stages of grief, and I can't even look at my laptop right now, let alone use my flash drive. My friend said that what happened to my hard drive is common, and that he could possibly fix it, but he won't be back home in another few weeks. So until then, that's that. Until furhter notice, my fics are going to be put on hold. Sorry.
