FANFIC

I have only ONE SaiMono ficverse, and all my writings build on this ficverse, albeit not in chronological order. As such, it gets a little confusing. So here’s a fic-map. At times, the chronological order is deliberately juggled-about in order to maintain elements of surprise in certain fics.

[fics marked * have not been posted to FFN but are already in my deviantart account]

The first part of the Twin Irises Arc consists of four fics:-

1) Twin Irises(pairing: Shuei/Koyu); time-fit: starts at almost the same point as the anime season 1 (Shuei and Koyu in the Archives, waiting for Ryuki).
2) Within Five Feet (with support from Ryuki) Time-fit: sequel to Twin Irises; takes place during Ryuki/Shuei/Koyu's trip to Sa Province to catch a glimpse of Shurei.
3) Taken Cold (with support from Shoka, Kijin, Reishin, Ryuki) Time-fit: sequel to Within Five Feet.
4) Ryuki's Gift (epilogue)

The next bundle of fics take place within the same time-frame as Twin Irises. However, they are one-shots, and do not affect the major events in the overall ficverse storylines.

1) *Testicles Time-fit: between Chapters 1 and 2 of Twin Irises.
2) Silk Pants Time-fit: one month after the start of Twin Irises, right after chapter 2.
3) Tonic with Plums Time-fit: between chapters 2 and 3.
4) Doctor Shoka Is IN Time-fit: after Tonic with Plums; between chapters 2 and 3 of Twin Irises.
5) Tiny Time-fit: before Chapter 3 of Twin Irises.
6) Overheated Time-fit: Before Not Enough Layers; in relation to Twin Irises, between Chapter 2 and Chapter 3.

8) Scholarly Body (with support from Ryuki) Time-fit: sequel to Not Enough Layers; between chapters 2 and 3 of Twin Irises.
9) Non-Existent Breasts Time-fit: the day after Koyu and Shuei consummated their relationship.
10) *Deflowering
11) Extra Extra Sweet (with support from Ryuki) Time-fit: Koyu and Shuei are new-ish lovers.

13) *Conversation on a Winter's Day Time-fit: after Shooting Autumn Leaves; in relation to Twin Irises, this fits between Chapter 5 and Chapter 6.
14) Introduction Time-fit: Between Chapter 5 and Chapter 6 of Twin Irises.
15) *This is Some Wedding Night
16) Teapot Time-fit: right after the wedding in Chapter 7 of Twin Irises.
17) Campfire (with support from Ryuki) Time-fit: also during the trio's trip to Sa Province, but takes place after Within Five Feet.

ABOUT MY GRAMMER (or lack of it!)

Tenses - I try really hard, but there are times when I honestly can't tell which is what! So if you come across inappropriate tenses, please let me know. Much appreciated.

Fragments - yes, there's quite a bit (meaning lots!) of that in my fics, all intentional (as far as I can tell!).

(a) I take liberties in some instances to achieve certain effects. Example:

"Koyu walked into the room carrying a tray of freshly steamed lotus seed paste manju. Which he promptly dropped."

Using a comma here (between "manju" and "which") would have lost the effect I wanted. The reader, in seeing the comma, would expect the sentence to carry on. That's not good here. I want the reader's thoughts to come to a stop, so that the next bit of information would be unexpected. Of course, there's the option of using a proper sentence for the next bit of information. I could have written, "Koyu walked into the room carrying a tray of freshly steamed lotus seed paste manju. He promptly dropped it." But this rather loses the punch, don't you think? _

(b) There's a lot of dialogue and thoughts in my writing. Most people, in casual conversations or in thoughts, do not use complete sentences all the time. Fragments in these instances are a reflection of speech and thought patterns.

(c) Then there are the fragments that appear in my prose. This is where I take the most liberties, my excuse being that the prose passages are usually very short, and interspersed with dialogue or thoughts (in italics). So, in order to keep the "feel" of the piece, I sometimes use fragments instead of proper sentences. Example:

"Ryuki looked at Shuei. Still catatonic. He turned to look at Koyu.
It IS huge. And, um, yeah, moving.
Ryuki's attention shifted. A few centimetres.
Same shade of aqua-green. Interesting. I always thought the grass would be greener on the INSIDE.
Still no reaction from Shuei."

Here, I want to convey the feeling of Ryuki's attention/thoughts jumping in quick succession from one thing to another. So the prose mimics the thoughts, fragmented and disconnected.

I would love to have your comments.
