Quote of the week: Age Old Lie: Dulce et Decorum Est - Pro Patria Mori
Start by doing what's necessary; then do what's possible; and suddenly you are doing the impossible.(Francis of Assissi)
There is a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses, only results. (Kenneth H. Blanchard)
Stories are butterflies of the writer's soul. They take time, care and dedication to write and lovingly cocoon into the web of words before they are finally let out into the world in the splendor of their colors. They are different from each other - unique - so none is more valuable than the other. Some may have big wings, glittering with myriads of colors, and others are almost unnoticeable in the swarm, only revealing their beauty when their watcher looks at them closer. There are also some that would seem downright ugly, prompting you to stay as far away from them as you could. Some will touch you, some will not, but all of them are a part of the person who had wrote them out.
It takes courage to let them into the world, where it's not only sunshine, but rain, snow and cold, because their writer is parting with a tiny bit of their soul to make the world a little bit better, brighter and more colorful, no matter the outcome. (Eirenei, 22.5. 2016)
I don't know about you, but I got a very unpleasant surprise today. Miss Hitman posted up a notice that there exist mirror sites that copy our works from FF net without by-our-leave. In essence, they are spam sites that mooch both the stories and accounts from FF, the layout is the same, only you can't log in your account or search for stories by author, community or forum.
Frankly, it pissed me off, because I didn't allow the reproduction of my works from FF (aside my manual cross-posting to AO3,) to any third party outside. This had been happening since April 2015, and I am appalled I found about this only now. I've reported about issue to the admin team of FF net (with a poke that they really ought to stop such safety leaks), and reported the situation to Google phishing team. Hopefully, this could get the situation under control, because those mirror sites can give you a crap-load of troubles if you click on their advertising links (or so I've heard). But better safe than sorry.
I am cross-posting this link on how to report the stuff to Google for you. It seems that if the situation doesn't get under control, I will be forced to make AO3 my primary posting account. I seriously don't want to do that as I got used to FF layout and its tweaks, while AO3 is still getting revved up, but if the worse comes to worst, I will.
Sorry to give you such a crappy notice, but as your fellow writer and reader of the works on FF, I felt you ought to know. If you are reading this on one of the mirror sites - so, not FF, then I ask of you to come to original site because I and my fellow writers did NOT allow our works to be copied on the mirrors by our leave, and as such, those mirrors count as stealing of intellectual property, aka our stories.
8.2. 2016 Status update
Change in beta status. Some works may be compromised because of it, but eventually, I will try and upload them on the site. As it stands, I am immensely grateful to Luna13 for her patience and help with bastardizing French and overall straightening my French with Who We Are, and hopefully, you will all met her once again in my French related projects. Sewarea is the new one in beta-ing waters of FF, but she impressed me with her work and dedication, and as such, she is the main culprit for Among The Hawks And Doves' latest chapter coming out so soon. She also picked up Reach For The Sky. The troublesome butlers and their surly ward in Fire And Ice are unofficially left to another beta's tender mercies. She agreed to take them to her care, so give it up for Paxloria! Suffice to say, I hope to update the new chapter sometime this week /cheeky smile/. If there's anyone interested to beta Eyeshield 21-related works, PM me and we'll see if you have what it takes!
4.10.2016 Status update:
Sorry for the late appearance, life called me back. Apparently it missed me because I was lost on it's road because it forgot to give me clock, road map, compass and GPS.
Onto the important bits: Yes, I am still writing. It goes slowly - two new projects railroaded me off my planned course. For all those curious how it goes: Slowly. One project is already some 20k deep in the numbers and growing, while the other is ankle biter of approximately 10k. Not posted up yet because they are still constant work in progress, especially the ankle biter one demands some in-depth research to get it going properly. On the other projects, they are in hiatus because of two reasons - Among The Hawks And Doves received critiques that got me thinking on how to improve the story telling from it's existent status quo. Crimson Sagittarius is still in the idea stage simply because I want to shake up the things. The Path Of Grace got dragged out and dusted off because I had a chapter at hand and it needed some revision before it was ready to be kicked out to the wilderness to fend off for itself.
I also received a message from one of you if I would be updating Scrapbook Jewels. The answers for the masses is here: NO. While I enjoy the reviews derived from your enjoyment of that particular series, I am now getting into writing the chapters planted in that nifty little heap into longer stories. There's around 35 of them (some are self-standing one-shots), I would only be digging myself deeper if I actually updated another one for me to write out later on.
6.3. 2017 Status Update
For all the believers, I am alive, for all the non-believers, the same. Currently finished with my handcrafting project so some of my time will be dedicated to writing up the works as updated below. As for translations, FeliLud is working on Goodnight Saigon to translate into Chinese. Right now not having a beta, so excuse any of the grammar or word mistakes.
Translations: As of 22.11.2016, this is new section, dedicated to translated works. I want to give my thanks to people who thought my stories worth of their time and effort they invested to translate them.
For any would-be translators: please do contact me first, which work do you want to translate, because I may already have someone else working on the particular work you want to translate and also, I want to know where the translation will be posted so that I may credit you for it if I agree for it to be translated by you.
ChristineDae1997 translated La Ronde Lunaire in Russian on ficbook.net. She did an amazing job, so I urge you to read it, and any of the others she's working on. (As the links written in here still don't work yet, you will have to manually search for it.)
FeliLud was given permission to translate the monster fic/novel Goodbye Saigon into Chinese. I am grateful for her offer, and humbled she committed to do so out of her own free will. So all who want to read it in Chinese, rejoice, and give many thanks and blessings to her! If you have questions where it will be posted when finished, then reach her through her PM message on the FF site.
Works In Progress:
Among The Hawks And Doves - Dug out, currently sitting at some 3k words. Working on it still, even if it's slowly going.
This Balance Of Time (52k words, 6.3. 2017, prologue done) - In works. Don't ask me how or why. But a fair wanting - even if I do have a bulk of it already written, that doesn't mean it will be updated.
Fire And Ice - Outline done, but the writing is in the wings still.
Reach For The Sky - Have prompts, will take some time to get it going.
The Path Of Grace - Dropped into hiatus, because of ATHD.
How I Love You - Work in progress, research for the next chapter is driving me up the wall.
Crimson Sagittarius - Outline done. Hiatus until further notice.
Kitten Trouble - Hiatus until further notice.
Sun Rises At Midnight:On back burner, another original project in works. Actually, in rewrite.
Works I am not intending to resurrect right now, but are pending. I will update, however right now not having any inspiration for the works - so I don't know exactly when.
Hot Pursuit - Found some, lost some. It's making me a little bit irritated at the subject.
Final Fantasy ReLoad - Draft for the next chapter in progress. Reno will definitely be in trouble in this one, yo.
Kobayashi Maru - Naruto ending both baffled and irked me, though it gave me several ideas to implement. Definitely more chibi Naru and probably chibi Hinata.
Dancing Queen - Re-work needed. I did get a notice that I bashed Kagome too much. Personally, I don't have anything against her, but man, the girl could be a little bit more sensible. (Honestly, traipsing in Sengoku Jidai in a short skirt? Is the girl begging to be made into a pleasure slave?)
Choice Of The Hearts - Have something... somewhere. I switched from the computer to laptop, so it will take some time to find this one, and edit it a little bit better for reading.
Naked And Sacred - Have quarter of chapter written out, much work to do on that one still.
Purged many of the drafts and story lines. What was left, it will be eventually written through, edited and posted.
Fandoms I will write in for the foreseeable future:
