It flashes. It spins. It flies.

An endless flashback of cobweb memories, molded with deceptions and realities. All tangled together as one. You should've known. You should've caught on.The different oddities and displacements. But your heart yearns. Because it's your fairy tale. Your make believe world. Filled with honey-scent  and bright shimmering colors.

Like paradise
You don't want to let go.

But even so, it reflects reality.
Happily-Ever-Afters: unattainable.

You don't want to acknowledge it, but deep down, you know.
A voice whispers. It hinders you. Reminds you. The inescapable truth.
And once again, you let go. The possible what if's and it could be's evaporate into thin air.
And when you wake up, it is long gone.

Just remnants.

Bits and pieces with
h o l e s  and  g a p s,
never to be filled.

Guess which fandom this poem is based on. The title should be a given.

Part of Thy World
To walk or not to walk: that is the question:
Whether ‘tis nobler in the mind to endure
The pain of a thousand knives
And utter not a single sound,
Or to embrace the mythical realm
Overflowed with melodies and harmonies,
Unheard by the mortal sphere above?
Under the sea, I am free,
But on land, can be with this man
If I choose to walk, I will betray the King, my father
If I choose to talk,  I will lose my love forever
Will it be he, who has raised me since the dawn of time,
Or he, who has strike me with his personal cupid’s arrow?
This the calamity of two gifts blessed upon me; o cursed spite!
To talk; perchance to sing
To walk; perchance to love - ay, but here’s the rub:
Capture his heart or capture his soul
Make him see,
Who his true love be
Be this quest not achieved,
May my voice be muted by Mother sea
That’s the canon of this cursed accord,
Yet decision refuses to make a coward of me
With resolute power, I ask of thee,
Father, forgive this wretched soul,
Be all my sins remember’d

I haven't been writing anything. Nah dah. Happy NaNoWriMo! I'm not participating though. Instead, I'm going to focus on Maelstrom. I mean, I do have like 65-70 percent of the storyline plotted out. I hop I don't crash before then. Yay to Remembrance Long Weekend. MUST. STOP. GOING.OUT. 

I want a new writing book for my stories -- preferably those Chapter's overpriced ones -- or really pretty pretty ones. Must. Resist. And. Save!

Update once every two weeks? That's my goal.

Been reading Colour Theory written by bluegreenapples. Yay to SasuSaku inspiration. I honestly don't know why I still ship that couple even though I don't want them to be together anymore. Maybe it's the only thing in my childhood that I still want to keep. Rawr. Must catch up to Naruto manga.

Speaking of Manga... darnit. Yu-Gi-Oh. Unhealthy obsession, I must say. I loved the ending, yet hated it at the same time. I feel like Yu-Gi-Oh plotbunnies and drabbles are forming in my head... Argh. Stupid ending. It leads me to think of different cliffies and alternate endings. Yes. I am contradictory.

"Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self."
-
Cyril Connolly


Someone kill me. right. now. For the past few months, there have been events of plagiarism. Back when I was a new writer, I was able to ignore them because I was a young, naive, innocent writer who believes that "imitation" can help a person develop. In that one side of the story, it holds true, but in another side, it causes a lot of damage.


Now that I've published enough stories to know, the amount of plagiarized stories circulating around the cyberworld unsettles me (especially when they are stories that I admire, stories that allowed me to create new friendships, stories that I love) and leaves me feeling stunned. Like how can you do that? Don't you have any shame? Amazing, talented writers are giving up their love of writing due to your poor and unempathetic decisions. How can you go around taking stories and calling it your own?
In the end, the chapters of Maelstrom are being left unedited because I don't know how and where to find the will to work hard on a story that may one day be plagiarized. Because of my growth as a writer, I've decided that all my previous stories which reference other stories will be taken and be rewritten again.



"Plagiarism is an unconscionable act, no matter the reason. If you justify your actions by saying it’s because you admire the writer, or you want to have a similar style, or simply because you believe imitation is the best form of flattery, you are in fact doing more damage than you know. Taking someone’s work and passing it off as your own is an age-old offense and unfortunately the burden of proof has always been with the original author. It is incredibly difficult to present evidence in cyberspace so it’s become a whole new struggle for contemporary writers.



Paraphrasing is plagiarism. Lifting dialogues is plagiarism. Changing the characters’ names and the setting of the story still makes it plagiarism. Using different sources and tweaking the sentences so that they fit together is also plagiarism. And while I can’t claim ownership for every witty discourse, snarky remark, or even my most compelling descriptive and narrative paragraphs, it still pains me to see sentences I carefully constructed repeated by others as though it was to their merit. You’d be surprised how easily the original writer can spot imitations of his or her work. And once they do, it’s very offensive." - November Romeo.

Hey guys!

I'm still alive! Just a bit MIA at the moment due to stress and piano prep.However, I've been reading a lot recently. As in actual books (along with some fanfics). I blame seynee  for introducing Goodreads to me. To those who are bookworms, you should make an account and add me up! ^_______^

I've also been writing.  In fact, Maelstrom is currently at 6K right now. Probably another K before the chapter will come to an end. To those who have been patiently waiting, here's a teaser (unedited of course):

 

Maelstrom TeaserCollapse )

 

Hmm, what else? Oh yeah,I've been into the HP and Hikaru no Go fandoms lately. HP because of the whole seventh book and you know, a part of me died when I watched it. Ohmygosh. Like what am I going to do without HP!? So I can only turn to the fandom and find fics to read. Got any recs for me? I haven't read a lot of HP stories. Just Broken by inadaze22 and now Luckei1's We Learned the Sea.

As for Hikaru no Go, I stumbled upon a delicious that marked all these lovely HikaGo drabbles. The anime/manga can never get old, and guess what!? An idea came up! But the whole plot needs to be planned out. Of course, I have to focus on Maelstrom and replot Royal Bane. I also need to work out my other Ruka/Hotaru fanfic and perhaps this fantasy Mikan/Natsume that's been in my computer files for a while now.

So that 's all my FFN updates!

All the previous chapters of now A Beautiful Disaster are posted here! After rereading my previous chapters, I think I understand why I took it down. There were many, many things were made me cringe and other things that made me twitch. The characters' dialogues! I know I haven't been in the Gundam Seed fandom in a while, but I know enough to be able to say, "Cagalli wouldn't say these things! Athrun would not act like this! What was I thinking!?" And there were indefinite unnecessary subplots that I don't remember planning in my head. There were so many parts based off on other stories that I read, it was terrible! Like what happened to originality!? Umm, so I don't know where I'm going to go with the new A Beautiful Disaster, but it will definitely NOT follow the path of the old one. Yeah? Yeah.

he was trying to save her because he didn’t want her to die… and he was going to kill her for scaring the living life out of him.Collapse )

“So the one who saved me was…” she trailed off. Her eyes widening as the things registered in her mind. “Your husband. Athrun Zala.”Collapse )
