BHS Blogress Report: 2016, Week 21

It’s been a quiet week in Lake Wobegon, my hometown, but some progress has been made on all my various projects. If you’re so inclined, you can follow the link below to find out why my patience has run out with Mahou Tsukai Precure. Shockingly, even my documented love and obsession with magical girl anime has its limits.

Progress on Shattered Skies this week, but that’s not the big news. The big news is below:

NekoStar did phenomenal work on this project, and… well, the result speaks for itself, doesn’t it?

Book I is coming soon to digital bookstores, and I just got chills up my spine from typing that.

More news as it develops!

Changes Afoot!

I’m doing some overhauling of the site’s graphics and design elements, so please excuse any temporary broken images, etc. Exciting stuff is coming!

BHS Blogress Report: 2016, Week 19

I got a jump start on the next chapter of Shattered Skies this week, thanks to my removing and reworking of some stuff from Chapter 15. Also, the coming return of my personal Tumblr’s Steven Universe Commentary, and new progress on the Book I cover!

All that plus my review of Captain America: Civil War can be found at the link below.

BHS Blogress Report: 2016, Week 18

Today has proven why writers who can edit themselves have a valuable skill. I spent most of today on Shattered Skies, trying to finish Chapter 15… and around page 25 or so, I realized that there was no way I could do justice to everything that happened in just one chapter. So I made the decision to cut it down and push the rest into Chapter 16… probably the right one, but that doesn’t mean I don’t hate doing that yet again.

Anyway. More Zoids pictures at the link, and that’s about it. Next week will likely have my thoughts on Captain America: Civil War, though, so look forward to that.

BHS Blogress Report: 2016, Week 17

I got heavily back into building Zoids models this week (arguably to the point of obsession), so writing took a back seat… but I am happy to report that Book I’s cover is in its coloring stage, which means it shouldn’t be long at all before I can share it with you.

Anticipating the return of Steven Universe, plus Zoids, Zoids, and more Zoids at the link below.

BHS Blogress Report: 2016, Week 16

Lots of progress, including a new revised chapter, finally. Fair warning: the vast majority of this week’s Blogress Report is an admittedly somewhat biased examination of the many, many flaws of a character who’s had it coming: Seiya Ko, alias Sailor Star Fighter, from the 90s Sailor Moon anime. It’s been a long time since I’ve been angry enough to write out a rant, but rewatching the series has given me new perspective. Read on, if you dare, and be cautions of some heated, NSFW language. (That’s for your sake, Mom!)

BOOK II, CHAPTER 3

Chapter 3

A clever mind knows

How to take the advantage

When the Goddess calls

 

            “When examining the life and legend of Faun Muranaka, it is important to note a few things: first, that for all the enduring tales of her heroic deeds alongside the other Outcasts, that she was and is by no means seen as a purely virtuous figure. To the contrary, stories abound of her sneaking into Unify and leaving chaos in her wake. A comprehensive list of her crimes (apart from repeatedly ignoring the terms of her exile, of course) includes but is not limited to: public drunkenness, disorderly conduct, reckless endangerment, disturbing the peace, breaking and entering, destruction of property, vandalism, a host of assault charges, numerous accounts of fraud both major and minor, and violation of obscenity laws. This last one is particularly notable, as it was apparently us, her own kind, who placed obscenity charges against her. One might think it patently impossible for we foxes of all species to find anything to be obscene enough to place charges, but Faun Muranaka found a way.

            “Which leads us to the second point: Muranaka was, first and foremost, a thief. She was incarcerated more times for this than for any of her other crimes, in cases ranging from simple petty theft and shoplifting to grand mal larceny. Rumors persist that the forge that her comrade Rowan Longstripe used during his Outcast days was procured for him from one of Unify’s leading blacksmiths. The entire forge, so the legend goes, was stolen by Muranaka alone, and somehow smuggled out of the city without anyone noticing. Again, some might call that impossible, but Muranaka apparently found a way. Some variants of the story claim that she stole it piece by piece over a period of months, until the poor, baffled smith was left with nothing but an empty room.

            “Understanding Faun’s propensity for theft may be key to understanding why she did what she did during that early autumn when the last Titan reemerged from his prison. The subject puzzles many who study Outcast lore: by all accounts, Muranaka and Hanami were close and trusted friends, risking their lives for each other on countless occasions. Why, then, would Muranaka deliberately deceive her friend and steal her most precious possession? Was it out of greed? Desire to help the last Titan? A self-imposed challenge? We may never know.”

[An excerpt from The Outcasts in Fact and Folklore, by Hill Jakes]

 

This is stupid.

That thought occurred to Zero with such abruptness that he stopped his pacing in mid-step, almost twisting an ankle. The many papers scattered around his drey fluttered in the sudden breeze.

It’s stupid, he thought, frowning at himself. Why the hell should I be afraid of talking to Hanami? She’s a friend, for Gods’ sakes. Friends talk to each other. There’s absolutely no reason for how I acted. So what if she finds out what I was reading? It was inexcusable of me. Gods, I’m an idiot.

I’ll apologize. Zero nodded, straightened his robes and headband, and made for the door. The metal platings on his boots made decisive sounds, a series of purposeful clack noises as he crossed the wooden floorboards, tail held high. Right. I’ll apologize, and then everything will go back to normal.

BHS Blogress Report: 2016, Week 15

I’m afraid I have to disappoint with a really boring Blogress Report, because this past week was nothing but business as usual. Progress on Book II Chapter 3 and Shattered Skies Chapter 15 continues, I took a couple leaps forward on my restarted photography project, and I saw Zootopia again, but that’s about it.

Next week things should pick up.

BHS Blogress Report: 2016, Week 14

This one’s late because I wanted to watch the premiere of Sailor Moon Crystal before I started writing it, and it took until early evening to round up the posse. My thoughts on the first episode of the Infinity Arc are at the link below. There’s also more progress on Book I’s cover, along with stuff about JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Part 4: Diamond is Unbreakable, Changeling of the Guard’s return to #1, and restarting an old collection.
