For anyone curious, here's part 4 of the discarded version of Dishonest Honesty. I said I would post 4 parts, but I only ever posted 3. So, here's part 4. XD; And that's all I have in a readable state of this fic. This part was actually not very complete, so I tacked on a sort of ending. This could read like a prologue now! :'D;

I still really like the idea of Ceo and Georgo switching places. Will have to write more non-Sun or Judgment centric fics sometime.

Haha, the end of each month is always hectic. :'D;; Now it's October! I hope the end of this month isn't as hectic because I would very much like to enjoy my Halloween. XD

I thought I was on the verge of getting sick on Monday, but now I feel all better! So phew. \o\ Let's hope it stays this way~~ *continues to chug down lots of tea*

Here's Part 3 of the abandoned version of Dishonest Honesty! :3;; The story really doesn't go anywhere, haha.

Oh gosh, I think I might be falling sick. (noooooooooo *claws throat*) *goes to chug down lots of tea*

Also, guess what, A Slice of Wedding Cake is overtaking Invincible in length! XD;;;;; I nearly can't believe it! Let's see if I can update Invincible sometime within the next two weeks so it doesn't lose to its much younger sibling by too much. XD;; I've tossed out the 1k I wrote though (might use it later in some other chapter) and am now starting over with a different POV, my second choice. :'D;; It's going much more smoothly!

Here's Part 2 of the discontinued Dishonest Honesty! I actually (or maybe you already know) really like writing Earth. I should write him as the main character again sometime. XD I only did it for Lessons in Demeanor. Not often enough! But, as a warning, Earth is not mindful at all here in the situation he's found himself in, unlike how Sun and Judgment dealt with the bodyswap.

Ugggghhhh writer's block! I've been posting stuff, but nothing for my older WIPs. I actually had a burst of inspiration for The Time of Ten Suns, opened the document, wrote 100 words, and now I'm stuck again. XD;; I'm around 1k into a random Invincible chapter, but it doesn't seem very interesting. A Vice-Captain's Tale and Follow the Sign are both stuck too. My way of battling writer's block is to flit around and work on different fics, but when I already have 11 WIPs and most aren't speaking to me, what do I doooooo. (Please come chat with me, ahhhh. That might help. It's why My Very Own Creature of Darkness is progressing much quicker than my other fics at the moment. XD;;) *head bursts* Maybe the problem is that I'm trying to work on too many fics, ahaha. I'm not a good multi-tasker. (How do people even keep track of my fics... I can't even keep track of them.)

But yeah. To make myself feel better, I'll just... toss up old stuff I wrote. Yup yup. (That's basically what I've been doing with Death by Sea. This might be another addition to the collection. =x Here's the discarded version of Dishonest Honesty. I had planned to write a fic featuring Storm and Earth switching bodies but decided to drop the fic. Here was part of what I had. I'll probably put up around... 4 chapters? Yeah. Enjoy the incompleteness. :'D;;;

In this version, Storm and everyone else don't find out during Bittersweet Sweetness that Judgment and Sun switched. I began writing it before I had finished writing Bittersweet Sweetness. When I decided to drop the fic, I changed the ending to the fic to wrap everything up more conclusively!

Stuff I'm selling! Payment is collected through PayPal! (This post should make much more sense than my previous confusing posts. :'D;;)

Alternatively, you can also place your order over at Storenvy.

I set up a Storenvy. It feels pretty cool to start one!

Fishbones!

Only one product there, that being Bittersweet Sweetness. XD; So, here's another option for people who want to obtain a book but don't want to use Google forms/email me/use PayPal/etc. Storenvy is for those who want to check out using credit card. You don't need to have PayPal to do it, and you don't have to talk with me. XD;;;

I raised the shipping fee a bit over there because it's all automated and I can't calculate on a case-to-case basis (and so that I can cover the credit card fees). Meaning, if you want to pay less, ordering via Google forms is still the way to go. :3;;

(Hm, maybe I should write up a products page here on LJ and organize things better instead of having links to all these different google forms scattered about, ahahaha *goes off to do that*)

Books~~

First batch of books!


Was a little nervous that the printing might go wrong because I changed one picture in the book. Thankfully everything looks right, and now I can order more without feeling nervous anymore. XD Will be getting another batch next week~~. (Some of you are part of the 2nd batch!) It's taking around 2 weeks for the books to be printed and shipped to me, longer than when I only printed one book (it only took a week then).

I shall be packing the books tonight and mailing some off tomorrow. After I finish writing my Parallels assignment, that is. |D;; I turned my assignment in, but I better get it into better shape before fics are revealed on Aug 15th!

I see I have a Parallels gift waiting for me~~

Look at what you guys have doooone, ROFL. (Put a book in Grisia's hands? Book it is! In other words, [livejournal.com profile] kiyutsuna is still alive and we are as crazy as ever and I should be sleeping. Good night.)


The book is ready to be ordered now! \o\ I just received my 2nd (revised) copy, and everything looks ready to go. I spent quite a lot of time rereading through the entire thing to catch errors, haha. |D;; I decided to stick with a matte cover!

If you filled out my previous form (I've now closed the form), I've emailed you for more information (your address, etc, so I can calculate your actual shipping price). Check your email! If you can't use paypal, I'll try to see if I can work something out with you. I'll be placing my order for this batch early next week! You make me happy for wanting a copy! :DDDD

For everyone else, please use this new form for orders. I will order your books separately, so the price will be the original price of $12 instead of the discounted $10 price. Feel free to order whenever! Books are printed on demand, so I'll be leaving orders open unless I get too busy to mail stuff out. If you have any questions, feel free to comment below or to email me at rykatu[at]yahoo[dot]com.

(Will update this post with more pictures later)
I'm back from AX! It was very tiring, but mostly because I killed my feet with my boots. Should've bought new boots for the cosplay! Each step was agony! I felt much better on Saturday and Sunday when I was cosplaying wearing tennis shoes. People did at least recognize Tsukito. Most of the comments were "Eee, Tsukito! How cute~" |D;; Suga was of course very recognizable. Overall, it was an okay convention, though organization really fell apart. I did manage to do most of what I wanted to do though, including going to the K Project movie premiere, Morita Masakazu's panel, the screening of Free!! episodes 1 to 2, and the replay Symphony. Post to come (unless I end up not posting like last year, ahahaha. Pics of me are mostly on other people's cameras, so I'm waiting for pics!)

When I got home at midnight after the convention ended, my book was waiting for me on my desk! \o\ It turned out fairly well, but there are some things I need to fix. Anyway, pics~~~


The cover uses a matte finish!

information on possibly purchasing a copy if you want one )

Hymn, you and I are exchanging books, so no need to fill out anything. (I can't wait~~)
Kiyutsuna, you are totally getting a copy for free! Thank you so much for doing so much art for the book. <33333

I printed my proof copy on a matte cover. I wonder if I should try the glossy cover too... Matte cover is nice, but it's so easy to leave fingerprints on it. :'D


Title: Bittersweet Sweetness (Table of Contents)
Fandom: The Legend of Sun Knight
Words: 38 chapters, ~65,000 words
Summary: Instead of receiving a brooch that dresses him in an assassin's clothes, Sun receives a trinket that switches his consciousness around with Judgment's. Now, Judgment must find out the mystery behind the Death Knight in Sun's stead. Problem is, imitating Sun's poor swordsmanship is no easy feat, and who knew what Sun was doing with Judgment's body in the meantime? Alternate telling of the end of volume 1 of the novels.
Notes: This fic was started on August 24, 2011 and finally finished in June 2014! It has taken far too long, but it is now finally complete. This is a table of contents for all of the chapters posted in this journal, as well as links to fanart down by readers. You can also download a PDF version of the story in this very post! The PDF is an updated version of the story with many of the mistakes fixed. I have not made most of the revisions in the online versions of the fic. The plot is unaffected in the revisions. Thank you so much for accompanying me on this long, long journey. More notes inside! Banner art and cover art by Kiyutsuna! There will also be a book version printed soon, an anthology with 14 other LSK fics! (because, three years of my life... haha XDD)

Notes: Oops, it's been too long again. The problem with taking so long is that I had to reread the story again myself, haha, which means other people probably forgot the story too. Now only 1 part left! *___*

Notes: This turned out completely different from my first draft, but I like the result. ;) (It is also kind of sappy, hahaha) ♥ It actually feels like a pretty good ending for the fic! However! There are still two parts left after this~. They will probably take longer than this part to show up as it's back to work for me. Hopefully, they won't take too long.

Notes: I was suddenly hit with the thought that it would be reaaaaally nice if the final chapter count came out to be 38... By the way, [livejournal.com profile] kiyutsuna drew a lovely cover for the fic! You can view a small version over here. I'll be tossing up a table of contents for the fic in my LJ sometime and will be including a larger version then, and I'll also be including it in the PDF. (Also, while I'm showing off these lovely covers, you have to take a look at this cute one of Grisia over here for My Friend, the Pope-in-training. Also by Kiyutsuna. XD)

Fic Exchanges

Oct. 19th, 2013 06:57 pm
lucathia: (fishbones: flower background 2)
Some exchanges I'm currently participating in. ;)

Tenipuri Secret Santa exchange on Tumblr! Works are to be posted after December 25th. I received a very fun assignment. I just have to brush up on canon a bit and read the profiles of the characters to make sure I have all the details right.

[livejournal.com profile] yuletide assignments are out! Fic is due December 22. I wonder who got matched with me... :3;; I got a pretty cool match. I only offered a handful of fandoms this time, but I was still surprised by what I got. I'm quite happy with it though! Time to review the canon~. I might also try to write one of the fandoms I wasn't matched on, but I'll have to see how I do with my first fic first.

And quite randomly, unrelated to all of the above... Silent Eagle / Awaitsun's character design from the Legend of Sun Knight manhua!!!! Do you feel he looks handsome enough? XDDD He is supposedly the handsomest character ever, one who is so handsome that guys would want to kill him to decrease their rival in love by one. (He reminds me of Ice... Just like Adair and Cloud both reminded me of Ice... Everyone reminds me of Ice... Must be how expressionless they are...) I did not picture him with white hair though. Not at all! I feel he'd look more charismatic with black hair. In fact, the Son of the God of War looks more charismatic with his manhua design! Oh well... I can't wait to see him in the manhua. He'll be showing up in volume 6.

I am so, so close to finishing Bittersweet Sweetness. I am going to finish this fic. 4 parts should do it. (Except, I've been hit with the urge to write a spin-off of it. A BL version. NOOOOoooooo....) Anyway, Part 33 should be done soon. I'm in the middle of editing it, and Part 34 is half written too. I've reread the entire fic again to make sure I'm tying up all of the loose ends (and of course, I get plunnied even more...). I made quite a lot of edits to my document, but I wonder if I should attempt to make all the edits to the three different places I've posted the fic... T__T;)
Title: Bittersweet Sweetness Part 32
Fandom: The Legend of Sun Knight
Words: 1,524
Summary: Instead of receiving a brooch that dresses him in an assassin's clothes, Sun receives a trinket that switches his consciousness around with Judgment's. Now, Judgment must find out the mystery behind the Death Knight in Sun's stead. Problem is, imitating Sun's poor swordsmanship is no easy feat, and who knew what Sun was doing with Judgment's body in the meantime? Alternate telling of the end of volume 1 of the novels.
Notes: Happy birthday, [livejournal.com profile] kiyutsuna! <333 I hope you have a wonderful day ahead of you. I wish I had more free time to chat, but for how, have this update, and thanks for fangirling LSK with me. ♥

Again!!

Jun. 20th, 2013 11:59 pm
lucathia: (fishbones: flower background 2)
Oh wow, Jenny Flint already translated Part 31 of Bittersweet Sweetness. That was faaast. XD;

Dulzura Agridulce!

I started reading this manga called Again!! about a high school student who is just about to graduate. He hasn't accomplished anything during his three years of high school and has been a loner throughout. He wonders how life would have been different if he had made different choices, especially if he had answered yes when the girl from the ouendan asked him to join. He would always remember her for performing the school song during the entrance ceremony all alone. The ouendan later disbanded because of a lack of members. He visits the abandoned club room of the ouendan for one last look and ends up in a misunderstanding with a girl who is waiting for her boyfriend. He chases her to clear up the misunderstanding but both end up falling down the stairs, ending up three years in the past.

Second chances. <333 Time traveling! And a cynical protagonist who is easily misunderstood. XD
