Author has written 2 stories for Spirited Away, and Howl's Moving Castle.
So...I saw that there were people looking at my profile and I thought I should write something.
This is my first fanfiction.
I am not here because I like fanfiction - in fact, I never used to read it - and I don't plan (generally) to write stories. It's just that I want to know what happens to Chihiro and Haku after Spirited Away. I haven't planned out what happens in this story, and what I post is what I have. Other than a document I have on the characters' backgrounds and the two worlds, I don't know any more than you do. That makes it exciting for me :) I wanted to share this with people who love the characters as much as I do, and want their story told.
That being said, though I don't know if I'll be writing more after this story, I do plan on finishing this one. I've been posting (almost) daily since I started, and since it's summer break, I'll hopefully be done by the end of the summer.
It's more important than anything to me that the characters stay themselves.
I should probably say something about myself. I am 19 years old, and I just finished my first year at the University of California, Berkeley. I've tried to write fiction twice before, once in 5th grade, and once freshman year. Neither were completed, nor were they very good. However, both have taught me about what works and doesn't work in a story, and I see their influences in my writing.
My writing is very unorthodox. Please let me know if things are confusing.
It's been an adventure researching Japanese lifestyles, traditions and folklore for this story. Please let me know if anything is inaccurate.
My goal is that the characters drive the story, and in the end, the story is about more than just them, just as Spirited Away is about Chihiro, but it has a special meaning for each of us.
After all, that's why we're here.

It's been over a year since I've embarked on this project - and maybe a third of the way into the 3rd draft. Thank you so much for sticking around if you've been with me since the beginning. I know a lot of you enjoyed the first version of the story very much (the second one was crap) so I've put that version up online. It's not finished, but you may find some new material as well as the ending which was never published, but may find its way into the final draft anyways.
I hope you enjoy!
Thanks for all of your support
