Author has written 3 stories for Romance, and Fantasy.
(Warning - bio contains some answers from chainletter-type questionnaries... I used to have quite a lot of those things...)
Projects in progress(slow or fast, writing or in planning, whatever):
RPG Cliché - On hiatus indefinitely. Gaming has changed far too much and the audience may not understand my out-of-date jokes if I tried. The theme and atmosphere of the story will most likely change as well if I pick this up again but hopefully it'll still be a good read. If anyone wants to pick it up though, I do have many notes and ideas to pass on as well.
Adachi's Short Program series inspired compilation - This has pretty much turned into a .txt list of ideas that hit me, vaguely relating to romance, under the code name "Cupid", in which I know I can spin a story out of if I tried. I will not divulge the 'link' between the stories here as I haven't started the compilation yet... This will probably be an on-going project fuelled by only moods and atmosphere if it ever gets going. Short stories were never my forte after all.
A sitcom - Four people living together. Two players and two losers, two guys and girls. All are typical but all are quirky in their own respects. A social experiment on an age-old question regarding the dating game. If I have more experience or help in sitcom sketching, I'm sure this will lift off. Almost started on it when the Script Frenzy...
Untitled Fantasy - A team project between me and a fellow writer and friend. We talked about this during summer 2007, and it got underway. Progress kinda died, we don't have much attention span...
Another Fantasy - My own this time. Got prologue and chapter 1. Couldn't resist the temptation and started this but now regret starting it at all. The passion for this was once so strong but kinda died after writing those, probably quite poor, chapters... It's really not easy to take up on such a big project for someone in my current reality. I'm actually tempted to just delete what I've written.
Age of Sails - It's a Choice Of... game - but playing it started a period of fascination regarding boats, ships, pirates etc. Pirate of Caribbean failed spectacularly in doing so, but after Age of Sails, I even started reading Treasure Island. I even have most of the plot planned and it feels like it'll turn into a good story. Once again though, considering I haven't even finished reading Treasure Island, I doubt I can start this soon... I'm not hot on the idea of starting this for Nanowrimo though, I want to do it justice.
Nanowrimo 2010 - Yes, I couldn't help myself after knowing of this event from reading another author's story... I never made it unfortunately, and that was with slacking off at work to write! It's a story that's the reverse of normal guy travelling to fantasy world - the fantasy prince finds himself in the body of a bullied boy. Of course, there is a main twist in the story as well. Think it'd actually make a good one season Anime actually. Doubt I'll pick this up and in hindsight, this is not a good story for a quick fire.
My Robot Girlfriend - No, that's not my story. I read the book as it was free, and for me, the twist was that it didn't go with the Terminator Rule. But I didn't like it because it didn't follow the rule, with the whole book written so sunshine and cute. I want to write something that is in direct contrast to it, but fooling others into thinking it's the same for as long as possible until the end of the book.
Many others - They're kinda just padded out ideas, developed over time when inspiration strikes. Not enough for the full bodied novel, but a structure of sorts. They are all different genres I'd like to give a try if I have the time. Ranges from something like Full Metal Panic, to a Gundam-themed post-apocalyptic idea, even to a short Thriller. Ever growing new story ideas also include another post-apocalyptic dark-ish fantasy, a potential harem manga and a TV reality game show. Someone should pluck my brains for all these, I think, prosperous ideas! If only one was rich and have bundles of free time eh?
A Melody Untitled - My first posted and finished story. The main plot flows around the seemingly 'perfect' basketball captain who has a regret tugging behind him and a dreadful loud-mouth gossip queen waiting in front. Apart from the main plot, there are other sub-plots in the story revolving around the 'Square'. It's pretty much six romance stories with one more prominent as guide. I don't see much romance pieces with a male lead around here, and this was one of the longest ones around.
My Legend - My second completed novel. The main character leads a peaceful life in a rural village - until a world-famous pop star moves in with him. Clichéd as that may sound, the main character doesn't fall in love with her at first sight, but even accepted a job to try and ruin her career. If that was not enough, her arrival somehow changed the distance between him and the girl he currently has feelings for - by making him into the school's badminton club's savior. He may be happy about that development, but his old childhood friend and crush just had to have the total opposite fate. This story is far from troubles around this quadrilateral, with stems of a love rival, an oblivious jock, a nosy under-classman, villians, fake actors, a mischievous sister, badminton talents... the list goes on. Another rare romance with a male lead, with what I believe is a truly twisting plot worthy of being broadcast as one of those hit US series and more.
