Information for "A Chance Winter Romance"
So the site with information on the Tokyo Symphony- the actual performance I picked occurs in April. For my story purposes I changed it to reflect the time frame in the story.
So I searched and searched until I figured out Kawasaki was an area in Yokohama- a Tokyo suburb per say and that was where the Tokyo Symphony plays. Then I found an amazing French restaurant in Yokohama using this site-
Unfortunantley, I couldn't find the menu for this restaurant so I adapted by taking dishes from another highly popular Tokyo restaurant from their website here-
And finally using the french I knew, and the lovely Babelfish translator (which actually wasn't helpful today especially since I left my French dictionary in my dorm room) I came up with their dishes. I had to actually guess on the items Sesshomaru ordered for an entrée with what knowledge I had and what I could come up with. Hopefully it came out right :)
And there it is, after tons of searching and research I now am terribly hungry for some French cuisine.
Information for "When Opinionated meets Conceited"
Sorry that this is later than expected. This website is where I found the information on how to "plan" Sesshomaru's house: (I used all the apartment pictures given)
And this is where I found information on Tokyo neighborhoods:
and also this link:
From Snippet 38 of "Pretty Lady"
The hotel that Sesshomaru and Kagome stay in is Amruta-Castle:
The places they visit, such as Charminar, are in Hyderabad, India: Here's a picture/ more information:
.Tank Bund is the Hyderabadi name for Hussain-Sagar Lake- some don't even know that Hussain-Sagar Lake is indeed Tank Bund. Here's a pic:
I HAVE FINISHED writing a story called Communication which has been one of my most popular stories to date. I really am happy about this! It's my longest story to date as well and the one I am the most proud of character development wise (after Lonely in Gorgeous of course)!
Hachimitsu is a story added to my entourage. It's based loosely off of "Honey and Clover" as in I have taken inspiration from the anime. I've begun to start Chapter 3 but really it's probably going to sit in the dust for a while longer so it's gonna be on a hiatus.
And well to put things simply, school's a pain in the ass but hey, I'm still writing!
That's all folks!
