Dreams in life: My dream would be to open my own Japanese Hot Springs (Onsen) hotel, just like in Love Hina. I would also like to be able to open my own beach restaurant/cafe in Japan. And I also want to die knowing I've written an epic story, or, write over a million stories, each one just as epic.
Things in Progress:
1.) "Verbena" 'A Legend in the Making.'
A Story where Universes combine. An Epic combination of the legendary Tenchi Muyo!, the voluptuous Shuffle!, the adventurous Pokemon and the mysterious Final Fantasy...
2.) "Passion" 'Where Two hearts combined become One...'
Ash loves Misty. Misty loves Ash. They both know it, but won't admit it. Hilarity ensues with chaos as the original trio go through a whole new adventure! Returning characters from the lands of Johto, Hoenn and Sinnoh make an appeareance, just to test Ash and Misty's relationship to the max! An AAMRL, A Pokemon Story...
3.) "Reflections" 'I love you...but you don't know that...not yet...'
A 700 year old demon has been resurrected in mainland China by the lecherous Happosai. She takes the form of a beautiful 17 year old . Vowing to destroy the one who imprisoned her she travels to Japan, to the little town of Nerima. The question is, why is she after Ranma?
4.) "Time" 'Time waits for no one. And yet, you stayed. You waited, and my prayer was answered.'
5.) "Soul" 'Listen. It's time to let go of the past. I'm sure she wouldn't have wanted you to suffer for this long after she had passed on...'
Cloud Strife & Tifa Lockhart are finally engaged to be married. It's been three years since Cloud defeated Sephiroth for the second time, atop the ruins of Shinra Tower, and one year since Vincent Valentine defeated the Deepground menace. Yet still... life refuses to settle, provoking a new challenge, a new enemy and a new bond of friendship between two of the most unlikely people.
1.) "Dreams" 'Where are you? You promised you'd stay with me...forever.'
2.) "Unforgiven" 'I love you, so please do not love me...'
3.) "Eternity" 'We're the same, you and I...'
4.) "Haunted" 'I'll never leave you...even in death!!'
5.) "Pure" 'Rumor has it that the new transfer student is an Al Bhed. They say she's pretty cute too...'
Tidus goes to Verbena, a school where Blitzball is at the top of the syllabus. Yuna, his classmate, practically rivals him in everything, even Blitzball. Unknown to him, it's her way of getting closer to him. Rikku, the new transfer student, immediately strikes a strong friendship with Tidus, causing jealousy from Yuna. It's all guns blazing as the two girls fight for the affections for the one they love.
6.) "Mirage" 'He had gone out to sea to train one day...and never came back...'
It's been a month. Tidus vanished whilst training near the isle of Besaid. Yuna, a highschool student, is in love with him and vows to find him. Rikku, her sister, is also in love with Tidus, but nobody else knows. The girls both go to Miraca Bevelle, an Academy dedicated to magic. Along with her friends, Yuna sets out to find where the man she loved disappeared to.
7.) "Freedom"'Everything up until now, has just been hell. Orochimaru, and the nightmare he came with. My childhood, and watching it all die, right in front of my eyes.'
8.) "Promise" 'Naruto... Please... Don't be dead... '
Naruto started to read Love Hina, Ken Akamatsu's legendary manga that all the females of Konoha are giggling about, but only because Hinata lent it to him. Or so he says.
Update: 27th July 2015
So in my last post, I was pretty chuffed that I'd managed to post something three months after the previous post.
This time, it's been three years.
Strangely, that's coincided with my time at University, to which has now come to an end, and changed me as a person in various ways.
I've been to Japan, twice.
It's hard to believe that my last post here was before all that madness, but it was a hell of a lot of fun, and I believe my experiences will help me write better stories in the future.
A few of my stories that I'd talked about up above this post, I've simply lost the inspiration for. I think that's partly because I haven't watched them in a very long time. At some point, I'll probably re-watch them again, and maybe the spark will ignite the stories I had in mind for them, but we'll have to see. So if you're curious about why there's a few ideas crossed-out up there, this'll be why.
That being said, I have ideas for a few new series I've watched these past few years. These include:
I'm sure there's a lot more, and I'm already working with these, as well as a bunch of other series in various mediums. I'll try and keep things updated here and over on DeviantArt/YouTube/Facebook/Twitter etc, but you guys probably know well enough by now, I'm crazy lazy.
For the stories I have already posted, I'll try and continue them, but it'll mean re-watching whole series again in some cases and that takes some time.
In any case, hello again and welcome to my world.
