Author has written 12 stories for Castlevania, and Devil May Cry.
I've never written anything on my profile page. I suppose I was never sure what I was supposed to write here. For now, I'll keep it as a log of any changes/updates I make to the stories I've written.
Castlevania Tales: Blood Under the Moon
Divided story into chapters. I had a very annoying habit of uploading stories as one big chapter.
Deleted second chapter which was one big "Author's Notes." In addition to being against FF.net policy (at least that was a rule at some point), this page was one of the most pretentious, cocky, self-important pieces of trash I am sad to say I ever wrote. In fact the only reason I decided to revisit this story was so I could erase that. It was physically painful for me to read what was going through my head over a decade ago. I apologize to anyone who actually read it.
Changed Inspector Gajette's name to Cunningham. Why I thought naming a character after Inspector Gadget was a good idea...I will never know.
Continuity Issues: Added minor references to "Thy Brother's Keeper" and "The Rose Garden" in a couple scenes. These are other stories in the "Castlevania Tales" series. Since "Blood Under the Moon" is meant to be chronologically further along, I thought it would be a good idea to mention 'past' stories that I wrote after the fact.
Gave Rosa a little more dialogue. I wrote this story before "The Rose Garden." I think I managed to develop Rosa into a stronger character in that story. So re-reading this story, I realized how little I gave Rosa to do in this one. Yes, she's pregnant, but it still feels like I short-changed the character. Particularly given what happens to her. So when it came to the scene where she sits down with Henry, I decided to change it. Originally it was a fairly one-sided conversation, with Henry giving exposition and Rosa just sort of nodding her head. Hopefully reads better now with her giving Henry some emotional support and applying her own detective skills to the "mystery."
Made Henry a member of the Order of Ecclesia. I wrote this story before the game Order of Ecclesia was released (story published in 2003, game released in 2008). At the time, it seemed to me that the games were pushing the idea of non-Belmont's taking over the fight. You had the Baldwins and Graves from Circle of the Moon. Reinhardt...who though a Belmont descendant, didn't have the name. Plus the game does have Charlie Vincent doing his own hunting. And Bloodlines, which in 2003 was chronologically the furthest the series had gone...again a non-Belmont named hero in the lead. So there's an idea that in the future there aren't going to be any Belmonts, in name anyway. I embraced the idea and as originally written wanted to have Henry and Cornell start a sort of Vampire-hunting school. This was an idea I never followed up on. Given that IGA came up with a much better idea, I decided to drop mine and retcon Henry into the Order. I had always had in mind that Henry was trained by some organization in the church. Order of Ecclessia works fine by me. Also helps that the Albus from Order Eccelsia uses a magic gun...not unlike Henry.
Other than some other minor edits and revisions, I think that covers it. Hopefully reads better than it has these past 12 years (yeesh!).
