Super-boring bio incoming?
Reality is, I didn't get into Haruhi or Touhou until relatively recently.
In the summer of 2008, I was frequenting various message boards, and kept coming across Haruhi reaction images. Wondering what all the fuss was about, I decided to watch it - all the english subbed episodes were on Youtube at the time. I knew the series existed, and beyond that, nothing else, so I went into it blind. I fell in love with it. I couldn't get enough, and read up on the Baka-Tsuki translations (when they were still up) for more. And before you call me a pirate - I bought all the DVD's, all the available books. I am supporting this series because I like it.
But anyways, that still didn't satisfy me - I then came on here, and began reading the FanFics.
The beauty of a series like Haruhi is that anything can happen, and be legitimate within the context of that universe. So, I began to write a FanFic...just not the one I've written. I actually began writing a crossover between TMOHS and my favorite PC game: UNREAL. I wrote a few chapters on paper, but hit a brick wall - a massive writer's block for that story. I had to shelve it.
Later that year, Left 4 Dead came out, and I wanted to do a crossover regarding that. Same result. Writers Block after a few chapters. I could not finish a story. I'd set out to write, and it would only fall flat. For fan fiction, or for my own stories. I had never completed a story I set out to write.
I gave up.
Fast-forward to 2011.
My knowledge of Touhou was nonexistant before 2011, other than "that song on the McRoll". And through various Youtube-diving, I'd come across various things regarding Touhou without knowing what it was. I forget the exact trigger, but I came across a series of videos on Youtube. A "Let's Play" of a fan-made game, posted up by a NakaTeleeli.
Touhou: Mother. A crossover of Touhou and the "Mother" series, which, is known as "Earthbound" in the states.
I watched that entire playthrough. It was my crash course into the fandom of Touhou, and I became enthralled by it. I watched all the videos, and there were a lot for that particular playthrough. I got interested, and went to Mangareader, finding the official mangas by ZUN. Found that someone uploaded Inaba of the Moon and Inaba of the Earth on Youtube. Watched those.
Then I found out about the Doujins. The fan-made comics.
I was intimidated. And only intimidated by the fraction that I came across. At random, I chose my first one to read.
"Scarlet Devil", by Asatsuki Dou. The very story I based my version of Meiling in Imperfect Cherry Blossom.
I liked the Touhou series, but after reading "Scarlet Devil"...for the fans to do that, for them to breathe such life into these characters...I fell in love with it all.
I was inspired.
Gensokyo. Closed space. One in the same. It fit.
And I did it. I finished a story. Haruhi X Touhou.
For the first time in my life I finished a story.
Imperfect Cherry Blossom was originally written as a stand-alone story. But due to the popularity midway through the releasing of the episodes, I've decided to continue it.
I hope it wasn't a one-shot deal, where Imperfect Cherry Blossom will be my only story. Because that writers block has been coming back.
