Hi everyone.Susie (and anyone who want's a major fan fic update)
: Right now, I've gone kinda heavy on Guyver characters because some of their circumstances will be difficult to understand because not a lot of Twilight fans will understand Guyver, though a lot of it goes back a few months to when I started to brainstorm about this. Of course, Shizu becoming a vampire hybrid
won't be easily understood, but that'll get explained a bit early on, and will also be explained in more detail later on, too.
Then there's the Guyver armor itself and how it works, Camel and his abilities as a vampire hybrid, my OC's, and there's a ton of characters, such as hybrids (Lia, Camel, Melinda, Jess, Renesmee, Bella
, Shizu), Guyvers (Sho and Agito), vampires (you can guess who
), and a female Zoalord who is also a vampire hybrid and after her conversion to being a hybrid, her powers are much further enhanced (Shizu
), and even a normal humans (Natsuki and Mizuki). Of course, there's the Guyver wikia for more info, as well as Japan Legend's Guyver page, TV Tropes Guyver page (Pages, actually, because they have an overview page, a character page, and even numerous other subpages), and, for a start on the subject, wikipedia, though the article doesn't go into as much detail as the other pages do.
Also, these chapters early on aren't action oriented. Later ones will be, and there will be more focus on my OC's and Twilight characters. But even with chapter 6, I'm still setting up the details, and introducing characters and such. So it's still early days as far as the story goes. However, starting within the next chapter or two, things will start to get intense with the action and also the humor--it's all PG-13 rated right now, but I'll be releasing an adult version of the story once I get the teen/YA version done.
As I said, this will be hard to understand at first, but once you start to do some research on the characters and plot devices in Guyver, more of this will make sense. But then again, the Twilight Saga is fantasy, and Bio-Booster Armor Guyver is science fiction--neither of which makes any real sense in the world we live in, but in fiction, does anything have to really make sense at all? After all, why are fantasy/sci-fi stories popular? I think because they don't make sense and require the reader to use their imagination is a major part of their appeal. Besides, as I mentioned, both Twilight and Guyver have much in common, it's just that the same things are expressed differently, and one is aimed at teenage/YA girls as it's main audience, the other is aimed at teenage/YA boys, though there are exceptions obviously to those demographics: boys/men and older women like Twilight, and Guyver for sure has it's female fans, as well as adult males.
Also, I don't think that you're old! You're younger than my mom is, and you're about the same age as Yoshiki Takaya, the creator and writer/illustrator of Guyver. One suggestion though if you want to research Guyver a bit--you can watch the OVA and TV series cartoons, or read the English translated comics, but you won't get insanely far into the story. You'd be better off cheating on the exam so to speak and just looking up the online sources I mentioned--info will be easier to look up about later events that none of the English manga and the animated versions cover, and info in general will be easier to find. That's what I did because of a lack of info--I was surprised to find that the manga is older than either I or Rob (by almost two years and a year in a half respectively), and that it's still ongoing. Feb. 18th will mark the 28th anniversary of the first Guyver release in Japan, and the manga is still being released in Japan almost every month. Of course, those of us in the US didn't hear of any of the classic anime/manga until about 1990 when a lot of anime cartoons were being bootlegged into the US. But, of course, that cottage industry is what lead to the big anime/manga subculture here in the states and around the world.Lynne
: The pasta stuff I made was good, but I couldn't finish it last night. Good thing, too, since Top Gear is on tonight.Everyone
: I don't have too much planned tonight. I mostly want to watch some Top Gear, have some dinner (finish off my past stuff), read and get some sleep tonight. It's cold, dark and windy where I'm at now, so that's not great, but it's still warmer than it's been here for quite a while.
So, I won't work on any fan fic tonight, but tomorrow night and Wed. will be good times to do so.
Also, as far as work goes, I really hate their copier machine there, as it gave me nothing but problems all day long. I had to sort papers--something it was supposed to have done--after it spewed them out all over the floor. And then I had to reorganize an entire file folder after Andrea (my co worker) suggested that I check it for things to copy--instead, we had to reorganize an entire folder of documents that were out of order and copy some extras, too.
Other than that, things went pretty good. I'm just gonna look up some stuff and then I'll be offline by about 9:00 and in bed probably by 1:00 tonight.
I'll be back later
