I just realized that I hate it when writers refer to 'eyes' as 'orbs.' Don't know why, I just find it weird and stupid. It makes me roll my 'orbs.' (now see, didn't that sound stupid?)

To those still with us

January 29th, 2010 (09:14 pm)

So, status update. If anyone is still out there, I want to say that I am trying to come out of hiatus. I recently finish my B.S. and unfortunately I lost my 2nd job. So now I have a lot of free time on my hands.

I'm gonna try to release the next chapter of 2,000 miles either tonight or this weekend. I have a few chapters that I wrote rough drafts of a long time ago that I just recently proof-read. I've been trying to write more but lately anything I write comes out too dry, boring, and clinical. Its like I got so used to writing college papers that I forgot how to write creatively. i'm trying to get it back though. I've been reading alot and that usually inspires me to write. I'll probably try my hand at some drabbles too.

The key words you guys should all pay attention to though, is 'try.' I'm having a lot of problems right now - which I won't bore you with - and the last thing I should be doing is hiding in fandom. On the other hand, I do need to do something to decrease the stress. :)

I just wanted everyone to know that I'm still interested in my fandoms. (I've even picked up a few new ones.) I'm especially loving the new chapters of FMA and FMA: brotherhood. MangaEd is now my favorite Ed!

Hopefully I'll 'see' you all soon!

Update...

November 5th, 2009 (02:28 pm)

But not on any stories.

Just wanted to touch base with everyone of my readers if your still out there. I haven't forgotten about my stories or FMA (the new Brotherhood series has me even more in love). I've just been extremely busy. I now have two jobs and am in college. I'll be done with college soon though and I will hopefully be able to get a better job that doesn't require me to work a bajillion hours a week. I have been righting over the past however many years its been since an update. The problem is that I only have time to write a couple paragraphs every few months or so. To say progress has been slow is an understatement.

So, that's that. I'll be done soon and I am looking forward to seeing you all and writing for you all again real soon.

You take the good, you take the bad, you take it all and then you have...

current mood: giddy

You know the rest!!

Anyway, in the past 2 days I've run through all 26 episodes of Ouran High School Host Club, and now I'm like a junky without a fix. Definatly a show that I could have seen more of. It was seriously one of the funniest Animes I've seen in a long time. Like, I actually laughed out loud.

The bad news is that I've used up all of my bandwidth over at NarutoFan just as I was 2 episodes into The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya. :( I could buy more but then I'd probably run through it all quickly again.

This anime thing is seriously becomming an addiction.

Progress!!!!!!!!!!

May 30th, 2007 (08:23 pm)

I wrote today!!!! Yay, I'm so proud of myself! Chapter 8 is a hard one to write because I know what I want to have happen, I just can't decide on how it happens, know what I mean?

So, Chapter 7 just needs to be gone over with a fine tooth comb, and I've got one and a half sections of 8 done. I have the dialoge for the second part, but I haven't written in the blocking. I'd like to write a few more sections of 8 while I still on a roll though, so I think ch 7 is still a ways off.

Just thought you guys would like to know.

2000 Miles - Chapter 6

March 26th, 2007 (04:27 pm)

Okay, here is March’s update and I am sad to say that I am unemployed again so I did something with this chapter that I really didn’t want to do, but I really wanted to keep my resolution so I had no choice. Chapters 6 and 7 were supposed to be one big chapter but I split that chapter up. I haven’t had anytime to write recently. I’ve got a job interview Wednesday and two more to schedule some other time in the week and they are all 3 hours downstate so if I do get one of the three I’ll be moving. It’s all really stressful right now and even if I did have time to write I probably wouldn’t. This way, I’ll have April’s chapter ready and by then hopefully some things have calmed down a bit. Whew. Well, I hope you guys enjoy this chapter. Ed’s in a bit of a mood for this one and I think that he comes across as a little OOC here, but you’ll see that he’s just disturbed/annoyed by some of his thoughts in the last chapter.

Taking the good with the bad

You know what the biggest tragedy in fanfiction is? Is it authors who don’t update? Is it a writer with an interesting premise but without the writing skills to pull it off? Is it really great stories that were abandoned right before the part you were really looking forward to? No, while these are all terrible in there own right, only one makes me truly, deeply sad. Fortunately, it’s not something that I encounter much. It’s a well written story that’s actually bad.

For example, I was just reading a Naruto fic. The first couple chapters held promise so I saved the rest of the story for later, offline viewing at work (I don’t have a wireless connection but I can still use my laptop). It was very well written. I could find no real grammar errors and only one or two typos for 20 chapter stories are forgivable. There was a plot and the author really took the time to get introspective with the characters. The only problem being the characters weren’t really in-character. Or they were unrecognizable as the characters from Naruto. Some things were the same, but the fundamental base elements were not there.

(Example: Sakura. She is defined by the fact that she loves Sasuke. Its cannon. It’s what shapes her whole being and her actions. Normally, that kind of motivation doesn’t make for a very good character, but I love her for it. To take that away, or to diminish it, makes her practically a stranger to me - although, you seem to see that very thing being done to her a lot in of stories. I know that a lot of people in the fandom don’t like her. Unfortunately for them, she is an important part of team seven, and most times can’t be ignored in longer fics focusing on Naruto or Sasuke. So in these instances, writers take her character and do a sort of mind/body switch thing and just mold her character into something fitting their needs. Sometimes this is intentional; sometimes the author just doesn’t seem to know what to do with her. I believe that the author of this story falls under the heading of the latter. Sorry, I really went off on a tangent there, didn’t I?)

The plot also was confusing and uninteresting. The best way I can think of to describe it is as a blurry word picture. I mean, you kind of got the idea of what was going on, but sometimes the dialogue made no sense. Or sometimes it was like there was a current running under the words and only the author knew what it was. It was also very boring. The slow pace the story began at never picked up. There was absolutely no urgency at all, even when the characters were in trouble of some sorts, the consequences was always two or three weeks around the bend.

Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m a long way from being stupid, so I know that I wasn’t losing something in comprehension. On the other hand, a lot of it is personal tastes. I’m sure there are a lot of people who really like this fic. There were things I did like about it too. (Sasuke was badass, so that’s always cool with me.) The whole thing just makes me sad. There was so much effort already put into this fic, and just a little more would have made it amazing. Sharpen the plot, focus on what the characters are instead of who they are wanted to be. (Artistic license is great, character debasement is not.) And before you ask, no I did not review nor will I tell the name of the fic. In this instance, I think I had better keep my opinions vague and unknown to the author.

On the other hand, I did find a really good fic to read today. I don’t have the link on me now, but if you click the little links to your right, you’ll see it under my favorites on my ff.net profile. It’s called Deep River and it is a marvelous look at a character that had little to no time on screen, Uchiha Mikoto, Sasuke’s Mother. I love finding fics like this. Really, they inspire me to write. I just love it when people take the time to really look at characters like her. Ones who are not necessarily important to the plot, but are really important to the characters that are. For this reason, a lot of the fic is speculation, but it is beautiful speculation. Any way, the fic follows Lady Uchiha from childhood to adult hood, to finally parenthood. It is interesting to watch how she relates a lot of her life to the water, particularly to the Nakano River. There are spoilers in it so don’t read if you don’t want to be spoiled.

In other news: I think Japan is conspiring against me. There was no new Naruto this week, and there will be no new Bleach next week! I know I’ve read well past these episodes in the manga but that’s frustrating me now too. Seriously, did anyone else read Naruto 345 and scream their lungs out?
