Hey! I'm not dead and yes, I am still writing...
Been super busy with things for the last few years. Oh my word, it has been a while, hasn't it. For those that remember, I am/used to be 'Slade13'. A -lot- has changed in my life since the last time I updated. Some I'm willing to talk openly about, other things not so much. But generally, I'm doing better then I ever have.
Now, I know your first question is 'When are you going to post some new stuffs?' Answer: Probably within the next week as I'm actually going to be on VACATION. Huzzah, the first real, paid, all to myself vacation in ages. The second question of course would be 'and after that?' to which I would answer... I have no clue. _;
I have so much planned for this year and next, but still fanfiction is a fun mental and technique exercise for me.
As I am oft to do, I love putting little poemish things at the start of each of my chapters. And the story I'm actively working on right now is no exception. Ramna/Sailor Moon cross mixed with a cannibalized 'Kamen Rider KIva' plot. This is the thingy for it's first chapter that I hope to have up in a few days XD
Shards of color dance and mingle, spilling hue across the heart.
Edges, borders, sealed and single, where one ends another to start.
Casting their lot on foreign soil, a monster force vast and full.
Searching and seeking in their toil, their lost queen of the...
Stained Glass Soul
Currently, many of the plot bunnies I have in my head are basically more of that ilk. That is, Ranma/Sailor Moon crosses (or 'RSM's) that use a great many elements of various Kamen Rider shows I've watched. Right now I have this RSMKiva mix, a RSMOOO, RSMGaim, and a RSMDCD... Though that last one is... a bit of a doozy of a plotbunny. So much so that unless I win the lottery or something, there is little chance of it seeing a proper start, let alone any kind of end. Might post something about it again over on the fuku forums or something.
While I will mention this in each story as I post, I would also like to make my thought process understood here too. Basically my plots kinda go like this:
Ranma is the make base of all the stories. The history is manga only (though I may flip flop on Ranma-chan's hair color depending on plot needs as technically her hair is black in the manga version). But understand that if I set something -before- a moment or event, then there maybe changes to whatever history comes from that moment or reveal. For example: The RSMKiva story 'Stained Glass Soul' is going to start sometime -before- Nodoka shows up, and as such I'm going to be taking quite a few liberties with both her and things about the history surrounding herself, Genma, Soun and his wife. But everything canon before my starting point remains.
Sailor Moon will always be an additive, and thus I won't hold to canon much. Canon characterization as much as I can, but not only will I play it a bit loose where I want, I may just add and mix from the various versions. Like one story I might use Manga Rei (who tends to basically be more asexual or at the very least not into men... I have to read the manga again to be sure which it was) but use the 2004's live versions take on their hair being normal colors in civilian mode. Generally though, I will be drawing on the original anime and the manga more then the Live or Crystal versions.
Kamen Riders will always be tertiary and often massively canibalized. One story idea I have uses just the baddies while another mixes the riders into the original Silver Millennium (yes, that is the DCD or rather 'decade' version. Those that have seen Kamen Rider Decade might get an idea of where I might go with this idea). Another, more pertenant example would be for Stained Glass Soul: I'll be flat out replacing the whole of the third season with the Kiva back drop of 'Fangire'.
And how will this mix and match set up pan out? Well, I hope well, but we'll see. Hopefully I'll have something for you all to read by next week.
