    29 March 2015

    I've started writing. Sorry it's been a couple weeks. March is a stupidly busy month for me! I had graduation and the usual work party that follows it (4 hours of speaking Japanese!!!! I thought my brain was going to explode).

    Then came the bad luck.

    It started with me falling on a jump on rail when I was snowboarding last Sunday and hurting my leg, which sucked. My leg is all sorts of gross colors right now, and I still can't kneel properly. Then, on Tuesday after work, I dumped an energy drink all over the keyboard of my laptop. I flipped it over right away, and I think I've managed to save the keyboard minus a few sticky arrow keys. That was a close call! If I didn't have this computer, I wouldn't be able to write... Then, that same night, I went to dinner with my friend in the next village over, and on the way home, I lost control of my car on a snow covered road and smashed into a curb (curbs in Japan are HUGE btw). Minus some minor whiplash, I'm fine, but my car is far from it... Oops. I had a panic attack and had to call a friend to calm me down before I could decide what I should do. The whole morning of the next day was spent telling my employer about it and then going to the place where I lease the car from and trying to sort out insurance. Once that was figured out, I was able to regain a little bit of calmness and go about my vacation with a little less guilt. And THEN, today I went snowboarding with a few friends and was going off a good sized jump when I took a hard spill and thought I broke my shoulder. Thankfully, I didn't, but I'm definitely moving at a slower pace than usual.

    Anyway, now that I've dealt with enough bad luck for the whole of 2015, I'm going to aim for this chapter to come out in a couple weeks. I know where the story has to go, I just have to type it out. The only thing I'm undecided about is how the whole Fuugen thing is going to work out. Though I ship the shit out of those two, I find it really hard to keep them (well, Mugen) together but still keep them in character. I think how Mugen acted about any sort of love/affection in the series makes it difficult to write his character realistically, though I think the show left Mugen's attitude toward that sort of thing quite open-ended, actually. If the group had continued on together, who knows what other situations could have helped flesh out Mugen's emotions? I mean, you see how Koza acts toward him when she reunites with him. He is quite cold with her, despite how she has no problem touching him or getting close. It really makes me wonder what their relationship was. He grew up in a horrible place without much love at all, and I wonder if he and Koza were initially close until the accident. I wonder if he was affectionate towards her, and what in character affection for him would look like.

    TLDR: Bear with me as I try to keep Mugen in character but also make him grow closer to Fuu. Since Mugen's affections are essentially uncharted territory in the show, I feel like there's a bit of room to work with, but I apologize if it comes off as too soft for his character.

    Have a nice day. :)
