Poll: If (AND ONLY IF) Finding the Four-Eyed Samurai...WITH YOU! includes a lemon or lime, would you rather have it in the story itself as it continues the story or as a self contained one-shot so the T rating doesn't change to M? Should there even be a sex scene at all? Vote Now!

Author has written 5 stories for Samurai Champloo, Final Fantasy VII, and Devil May Cry.

Greetings everyone who has decided to come here, and well met! My real name is Destiny. And as of 2022, I'm 24. Feel free to ask me anything. I'm a pretty open book.

(My profile pic is my work-in-progress, full articulation, Mugen and Fuu dolls! Had to actually cut and style their hair. Still have to make a lot of details on them someday...like sewing Fuu's kimono in FTFES...WY and sew a baggier sleeved samue for Mugen.)

I can bet most of you who come here are the ones curious about my Samurai Champloo Fanfiction: Finding the Four-Eyed Samurai...WITH YOU?

As of May 20th, 2022, Finding the Four-Eyed Samurai...WITH YOU?! is now posted on Archives of Our Own with complete revamp of the first 5 chapters, as well as fanart for the story done my dear friend ShiroganeR! Because the story is new to this website, I would love any support you can give there, be it kudos, bookmarks, or comments as it may help bring in new readers!

Here is a link to ShiroganeR's profile on Deviantart! I'm sure he'd love your support!

Here is a link to my Samurai Champloo based Tumblr Blog. I am very sparse on social media, but I do have many cultural/Fuugen proof posts there, if you are interested.

Since 2012, I've been on and off Fanfiction, sometimes only posting one chapter for it a year. But then, in March of 2020, something hit me hard. After a conversation with my boyfriend about what my dreams for the future were, one of the biggest things that occurred to me, besides wanting to be a mother, is that I really wanted to get a novel published. It was at that moment that something else hit me: writing FTFES...WY? was the biggest loose end of my life.

This may sound strange... But, that Fanfiction has been a part of my life for a whole decade now. Sure, I wasn't writing it all the time, but it always stayed at the back of mind. And, sometimes I wonder what the hell kind of existential crisis I'm gonna go through when I actually finish and revise the whole damn thing.

I had originally started writing this at the age of 13, back in 2012, never expecting that it would amass such a large following. I learned so many invaluable lessons about storytelling from it, and also was given the confidence to share my writing with others (and boy the early chapters that aren't revised yet are baaad). At the start, my adolescent self wanted nothing more than a cutesy romance story that would fulfill my fangirl needs. But over the years, I saw what a travesty this was to the anime and to its complex characters, and have decided to implement more episodic plot points, more characters, and a development between Mugen and Fuu that would be realistic for them, as much as it is frustrating.

Before I can ever even attempt to write serious original material, I need to finish this story, and revise it as best as I'm able. Not just for all you wonderful readers and reviewers who patiently waited all these years and urged me on with such kindness, but also for myself. It will allow me to let go of my youth, but also give me something to look back on fondly,

Since that conversation that triggered me, 2020 AND 2021 have been extremely productive years. My most productive years in writing EVER, actually. I was probably one of the few people in the world who was happy during the Covid Pandemic...

In 2020, I've posted 9 new chapters, rewrote 4 old chapters written in 2015 and also posted an M-rated one-shot.

In 2021, I've posted 3 new chapters, and rewrote 11 old chapters originally written between 2012-2015

I am hoping 2022 will have similar productivity, despite my full time job at a Chinese Resturaunt. DX

I want to thank you so much, dear readers, for giving me such wonderful feedback and inspiration through the years. It helped not only carry me through these trying times, but made them very entertaining and fun!

Plans for Finding the Four-Eyed Samurai...WITH YOU?

Before I get into it, I have a Discord server dedicated to Samurai Champloo and this fanfiction, as well as just about random Japanese stuff. If you're interested, please send me a message! Lots of Japanese cultural info, character inspirations, chapter plans, sneak peaks, Samurai Champloo fanart etc. gets posted there!

Will it continue?

Yes. (Unless I die.)

How many new chapters are left?

Roughly 12. May seems like a lot but...there are few plot arcs remaining before the grand finale.

When will your next update be?

Huge apologies to all my readers who have been waiting. My boyfriend and I are moving to a new apartment and things have been hectic. Once we're settled in, and I can get a proper schedule in, I'll definitely be back to writing!

Chapter 50 A Song of Seasons will hopefully be posted by December, 30th 2022. Apologies for the long hiatus! Aside from moving, working and Halloween planning, was also working on rewriting the earliest chapters and crossposting to Ao3.

Are you revising your work?

Yes. Heavily.

Many chapters written when I was between the ages of 13-17 are abundant with bad writing, from skimpy plot, to syntax errors, to purple prose, to poor word choices. You name the mistake, and it's probably in there. I intend to completely rewrite them. So I am stuck between revising, but also writing new chapters.

What chapters are being rewritten?

As of now, the chapters that need the most heavy revisions are 12, and 20-32.

Everything else has been written or rewritten within the last couple of years. Though, even those few years saw some big improvement in my writing, so I'll probably go over everything someday.

When were your most recent updates?

Chapter 49 From Hell to Heaven was posted on February 1rst, 2022.

Chapter 48 The Path to Providence was posted on December 25th, 2021.

Chapter 47 Disgrace and Deliverance was posted on December 7th, 2021.

Chapter 46 Snow in Spring was posted on October 25th, 2021.

When were your most rewritten updates?

Prologues (AB) and Chapters 1-3 have been COMPLETELY overhauled and reposted on May 20th, 2022, adding nearly 30,000 words to the story.

Chapters 4-11 were also COMPLETELY overhauled and reposted on July 31rst, 2021, adding nearly 70,000 words to the story.

Rewritten ground up, these story arcs are basically all new episodes of the journey. They have tons more character development, cultural info and on a technical standpoint, I consider them some of my best written prose as of now.

I know many of you have messaged me on Tumblr, Fanfiction, and emails. If I haven't gotten back to you yet, please message me one more time!

Thank you for stopping by!
