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.

BHS Blogress Report: 2016, Week 13

This week has seen a lot of very smelly petsitting work, but also a new chapter of Shattered Skies, the upcoming premieres of JoJo Part 4 and Sailor Moon Crystal, a major development on Agents of SHIELD, and the grim, gritty, rainy ugliness of Zack Snyder’s Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice.

BHS Blogress Report: 2016, Week 12

Due to hostile allergens in the air and a lack of other notable events, this week’s Blogress Report is the shortest one yet. I link to “Spirited Debate” on my short fiction side blog, share initial thoughts on Daredevil Season 2, discuss my problems with Mahou Tsukai Precure, and show off Destoroyah.

Hopefully, I’ll come out with more interesting material once my sinuses stop killing me.

BHS Blogress Report: 2016, Week 11 (Zootopia Comparison)

As you can see up there, I finally got to check out Zootopia this week, and I’m happy to say it exceeded all my expectations. I’m including the full text of my comparison between the movie and my series below the Read More tag, so check it out at your leisure. Hanami’s theme is also finished, so check it out on the Music page. The usual link to my DA page is below, where also I cover photography problems, Godzilla movies and monsters, and the final Captain America: Civil-War trailer featuring you-know-who.

BHS Blogress Report: 2016, Week 10

The artist for the Book I cover tells me he’s starting work on it this week! That’s more than enough to warrant being mentioned first, don’t you think? I also share some preliminary thoughts on the similar themes of Tasakeru versus this week’s new movie Zootopia (more to come on that later), the new trailers for Ghostbusters and Sailor Moon Crystal, the promise of more Star Vs. The Forces of Evil, and the coming end of Wander Over Yonder.
