(Hmm... I see I'm *so* articulate when it comes to titles these days... ^^; )

......I'm not sure whether to be overjoyed or to crawl under a rock and pretend I didn't see anything. ^^;; I finally started looking around at GH fic sites again today after... 6 months? More? >.<;; Umm... yeah. Not only are there some sites I've never heard of, there are a lot of new stories out there as well. >.<;; The nice thing with GH is that from what I'm seeing, the quality is still quite decent for stories and writing. A far cry from what's generally been the case with HakuYou. (Don't get me wrong, there are some good sites out there. They're just few and far between in comparison.) ^^; Also, maybe it's because of the way the fandom was established, but I'm not seeing any mobile sites yet. (Haven't looked around for new sites that much mind you.) The keitai sites are everywhere for HakuYou and it's pretty annoying (think microscopic font size) not to mention some don't allow non-mobile (sic PC) access.

I think I've got lots of reading to try and catch up on this weekend. :P That's okay, I spent much time wandering around 'dummy' pages looking for a 'hidden' (sic 18+) area on one site. ^^; Bad? Me? Nah... :P I'd forgotten how naughty Naru x Mai can be. ^^;

Oi, no GH fic teases please, especially NXM when most of us can't enjoy them like you can. HAven't looked for GH doujinshi much of late because doesn't seem to be much new and what is is mostly all novel type. *sigh*

^^;; I updated the GH Search addy on my link list, so you could take a look at the sites that have online manga. Mind you, from my quick look, they're mostly 4-koma manga types. ^^; I haven't looked at any doujinshi lately, but for GH especially, they do tend to be novel types. ^^;

Thanks for doing that but I really can't understand much so probably won't be worth the effort. Not a big fan of 4-koma.

I know mostly novels sadly... few circles that do do manga doujinshi though have gone silent or vanished.

The search engine also lists those sites that have offline activities, but... There aren't that many over all. I'm not sure how many actually registered with that search engine compared to the original one. (I just updated the site addy since the old site address died some time ago. I'm just a little slow on the draw. (Like a year or so slow.) ^^; )

All the GH fics are in Japanese? *sad*

Any of these sites in English?

And does this mean you'll be catching up on IW and GW?

Posted by: Shadow (kagedreams)
Posted at: May 30th, 2009 01:58 am (UTC)

Sadly, no. And what English they do have tends very much towards Engrish. ^^;

I'm not committing quite yet. For one thing, I still hate the way my writing's sounding at the moment. >.> One step at a time. But at least I'm into reading GH again. ^_^

Why do you hate the way your writing sounds? What's wrong with it?

Posted by: Shadow (kagedreams)
Posted at: May 30th, 2009 11:01 pm (UTC)

I think it's one of those phases or something. (Could be worse. It could be the like it one day, hate it the next phases.) I'm not liking how things sound, the way it flows, etc. Maybe I'm being too impatient in trying to get things down and not fleshing things out enough...? Not sure, but it's more lacking than usual at the moment. :/

*sigh* I don't see a problem with the flow of either story, truth be told.

Ah, I suspect we're talking about two different issues here. ^^; I'm talking about my current writing being a problem (although that will affect any edits I do, too). I haven't read over IW or GW yet, so I'm not sure how I feel about them, but reading over some of the SSs... Shall see. :/

Sorry! I was thinking your current works and going 'Eh? What's she talking about?'

Posted by: Shadow (kagedreams)
Posted at: June 1st, 2009 05:08 am (UTC)

*laughs* Current works would be the scribbling I've been doing for HakuYou. Haven't worked on it for a bit now though. >.> The next part that I actually have thought out skips ahead a number of days. *sigh*

Don't sigh. That's happened a lot with Dancing Queen chapter four. It's a hassle, but not something to sigh over. Work from there, the rest'll fill itself in. ^_~

*laughs* That might be okay for a longer story, but in this case, it's akin to writing chapter 1 then skipping to the last chapter or the epilogue. That's a lot to have fill in on its own. ^^;; (Although, in this case since it *is* a SS there won't be much between chapter 1 and the final chapter...) >.<;

So hard not being bilingual...

Does this mean IW and GW might get updated? Please? Pretty, pretty, pretty please?

Re: So hard not being bilingual...

Eventually, yes, but I can't say when yet. There's also the bigger problem of disliking my writing at the moment. That's going to take more work I suspect. >.>

Re: So hard not being bilingual...

While I completely understand self criticism. I would like to suggest two things.

First, we all love your writing so take heart from the fact that with all of us rooting for updates, it can't be that bad!

and

Second, go to fanfiction.net and read some stuff there. I suspect you will come away feeling like Shakespeare after some of them, although it seems like lately better authors have been posting.
