Favourite story genre to write: As you can see below, I either scare the shit out of people or make them cry from laughter. There's just... no middle road. I can't do it.
Sakura had lived the life of a teenaged-girl to perfection. That was, of course, before she met him –a mysterious stranger she met from cyber world who had it all in one: humour, manners (for the most part) and so hotly secretive… it was all fun and exciting until that one night, when he proposed to play a little game of his own.
She agreed without any hesitation.
And before she knew it, she was being watched…followed…
Suddenly, he was everywhere, and there were no places left to hide in.
Little did Sakura know, she was being drawn into a never ending game of hide and go kill -an online game made too deadly real.
And that the cost of loosing was the life of your own.
To be able to play any sort of a board game, logically, you'll need two main things: the player and the representing token, also known as: the game piece.
A game piece is, according to the dictionary, the object the player controls to be able to carry through and play the game.
The player, in the process, enjoys the game, if it goes well to his liking.
But why wouldn't it… when the token, a mere nonliving thing, did not have the ability to object?
The player, therefore, was in control.
The game piece only follows.
In this little game that I was involuntarily playing in,
He was the player…
…And I was his game piece.
It all starts with eight friends.
Telling of mysteries, folkore and legends
Fireflies and firelights;
With a little love, a little humour
And a large scoop of fear and terror.
Not worth summarizing. I just hate to delete the story because it’s good to look back at mistakes. It's kind of funny to read once in a while & see how far I've gotten over the years. It stays published, if just to have something to laugh at. x)
Frequently Asked Questions
Inspiration for Instant Message?
I had a phase where I freely talked to strangers online, on Friendster, Yahoo Messenger, MSN (remember when those still existed? lol), Fanfiction, Deviant Art, chatrooms & etcetera. I literally ended up talking to a stranger’s cousin’s friends—I was that connected.
A few years later I realized just how dangerous that was. I started playing the what if game, “What if I’d met a pervert, or a serial killer? What if he’d started stalking me? What if he could see everything I did?”
And IM was born. =)
Can I translate Instant Message?
All translations must uploaded on FANFICTION.NET and must notify me first.
Can I make a fan-art of Instant Message?
Of course! Again, send me a link. I wanna see your awesome drawings, which would all be much better than my artistically-challenged stick figures.
You should publish Instant Message. Or make it a movie.
I love you. Those words make me giggle all over.
Inspiration for Auto-Incorrect?
Frustration from auto-correct
PLUS Sesshomaru born in the Feudal era & probably clueless with modern technology
PLUS Sesshomaru’s superiority complex
EQUALS There’s nothing more hilarious than knocking Sesshomaru off his high horse. x)
Inspiration for Less Than Three series?
It occurred to be that a lot of animes I write / read fanfiction for are not in the modern era. (Like Naruto and Inuyasha). So I figured, what would happen if they had cellphones? And it tumbled from there.
Favourite FFnet Authors?
Hands down, my all-time favorites would have to be...
Read my story?
Sure! Send a link and I’ll leave a review. It probably will take a little longer, though.
If there’s something specific you want help with (character development, how to write horror/humour, keep characters in character, etc), message me and I’ll be happy to help!
In general, I think of writing as manipulation. All you have are words—no soundtrack, no visuals, nothing. You’re getting the readers to feel what you want them to feel. LAUGH! CRY! Be scared ... NOW. Also try to get them to think what you want them to think: if there’s a surprise at the end, hide that surprise, make them think something else, control how much they know, whether they’re suspicious about this character or that.
That’s usually my mind frame when writing. Write with a purpose.
1. More rare = more emphasis. This goes with everything.
If you have a short sentence at the end of a long paragraph, that’s a good way to getting attention! (Darkness filled the room, creating a cold, dark atmosphere for fear and dread, clawing up my spine and clogging, suffocating my throat. There—in the corner—a shadow. And a knife.)
Also for romance. If every hand held, every finger touched, and every peck on the forehead are rare and far between, then those moments will mean so much more when they actually happen. If the characters be making out all over the place, well, it’s not that memorable, is it?
2. Avoid "I SUCK AT SUMMARIES." If you can't give enough effort into two sentences, you can't expect readers to take the time to read the rest.
3. If you hate writing a scene (because it's boring, etc) then that's a sign: Don't bother writing it. s not exciting to write, it won't be exciting to read.
4. Accept criticism. Even flames! I usually take a few days to calm my emotions before I go back and re-read the flame & see if they have a point. It helps improve me a lot.
5. Don’t start your fic with the heroine waking up to the first day of school and smashing her alarm clock. Please.
Feel absolutely free to message me, if you have any questions, requests, or whatever. I'd love to talk to co-writers and co-readers (or co-kakabayans? Hoy! lol) and hear what you have to say!
To everyone who has supported me via reviews, I thank you.
