Author has written 5 stories for Naruto.
February 02 2016:
First of all, my deepest, sincerest apologies for being gone for more than a bloody year. I'm posting about it soon in my site to anyone who's interested. No explanations will suffice, I know, but at least I want to share a glimpse of the whys and hows of my terrible silence during what I consider my worst year in recent memory
Ugh, so dramatic
Let's talk about something that came up. All ears, please. But first--to you all who reached out to me in concern, I love you to the tiniest pieces of my heart : )
Two: It has my approval, full stop
Three: They're not Naruto and Sasuke. They are Haru and Aki, different characters. Just, familiar. Really. Really. Familiar.
Four: Storyline and plot are, of course, original. And mine. Hence, Shueisha has no leg to stand on in case they come after our asses, in my humble opinion. To borrow my friend's words: "Furthermore, since for this drama CD the story and script were further revised and the characters changed from the original, we are of the opinion that this story does not violate any of the copyrights mentioned above."
She's kickass, I tell you
Five: It is NOT--I repeat--NOT BL. Like the Naruto we all know and love ; )
Last: I AM FAN-GIRLING OVER HERE GAAAAAAAAAAH
To anyone with more questions, I'll be around twitter (@thecrapdealer) this week with answers
Please support the drama CD, the cast and crew had really put their hearts into it. Just spreading the word is a lovely bit of help : )
August 28 2014: For some sorta-personal news about me, you may drop by here.
... Being a good writer takes so much commitment, selflessness, and persistence. It's not enough to just have a good idea. You actually have to write them down and flesh out all the annoying details between point A and B. And then keep at it despite the frustrating writers' blocks or when your writings doesn't come out the way you envision in your mind. Or when you just want to do other easier activities, instead of the much harder act of creation.
What other talent or craft in this world can create an entirely different universe within another person's mind? Or make you snort with laughter one moment only to completely shatter your heart in the next? What other medium can better teach you about the hardship of life and sympathize with the experiences of people who are completely unlike you? I can be entertained by movies and television but they can never move me the way that great writing can.
But you know, the tricky thing about writing is that theoretically, everyone can do it. But so few people do it well.
