Alas, due to the death of my poor pup, whom I've had for the past 9 years and was my sitting buddy while I wrote fanfiction into the wee hours of the night, I've taken up soju, ramen and k-drama to drown my sorrows. I'll be a little out of it for a while.
In honor of the 20th Anniversary of the Tales of JRPG series, I am having a writing revival of all my favorite Tales of characters!
I've been working and reworking, editing/cutting/pasting, writing and deleting chapters in my Elize fiction like a mad person. Next thing I know the short fiction I planned is spanning 14 chapters or more. I couldn't seem to get the feel of it correct, went back to finish 3 alternate endings in Xillia2, meditated on it with more Xillia OST, and after 97 hours of gameplay I think I've got it now.
I struggled with Elize because in my head I really wanted her to fall in love if she was going to die but I didn't know with whom. But it wasn't merely a love story I was going for so I chucked those chapters. What I realized was that I was so attached to the Xillia2 game because I loved the interaction of the characters as a team, just like in Tales of Vesperia. So, 14 chapters later, I'm still writing in characters and situations that help Elize grow as a person and take away some of the angst and edge of the underlying plot. Elize is really a contradiction, an optimist grounded in darkness, which is why I found Gaius to be her perfect foil. I'm sure I've just upset an entire legion of yaoi fans there... but oh wells.
