On a Journey

Well, not really. I’m on the last fishing trip of the summer before I start part time work as a substitute teacher. But even though I currently have a very crappy Internet connection, I can still try to upload Lords 24. So here it is, and it better be showing on the menu, since I had to wait 20 minutes for the page to load.

Anyway, still taking requests, please see last weeks post for more information. I forgot to add in the last post that I will also not entertain any vampire/high school adaptations of Fatesbane. For one, who needs vampires when falucite are way cooler (and sexier)? And second, poor little dyslexic Tia would be more homicidal than a hormone driven Satel if she were sent to school. XD

I am drawing a sketch of the latest Tia costume and one of Satel’s new outfit. Hopefully one of them will be ready by the posting of the next chapter.

A Small Distraction

No updates yet because it’s finals time for some students out there. Got to wait until the end of this week before I can finish the chapter corrections.

Until then, I have a little distraction for all of you since we’re close to the end of the third book. I did say that once Lords was done I would take one request and try it out. I’m sure many of you have scenes you want to see, and I wouldn’t be surprised if most of them involved heated moments between Satel and Tia. But I can only do one, maybe two, requests, so let’s start a small contest. Leave your request ideas in the comments here or on fictionpress and I’ll select the top four (if I get that many). After that I’ll put up a new poll and have everyone vote on the four. The idea with the most votes will be written and if it goes well, I might just write out the second place idea.

The only limit is that I will refuse to write anything that would be grossly out of character for them. So if someone requests something like Tia wanting a threesome or cheats behind Satel’s back, I won’t even consider it. Conversely some kinks and fetishes might be accepted depending on the ‘timeline’ of the request, as they were not as kinky in book one as they are in book three. Realistically book one!Tia might not cope too well to a full blown fetish as her later personas.

And, of course, not all requests HAVE to be about sex. I will also accept any requests for father daughter moments between Cegil and Tia, or even early childhood stories of Satel and the clan. Alternate reality requests will also be accepted, in case there are those curious as to how A Moment Lost might have continued, or if there are other ‘what if’ scenarios people wanted to see, like ‘what if Dantia didn’t call for Cegil when Satel joined her in the pond in book one?’.

I figure by the time I get the final chapter of Lords up, a request will be decided and I can start working on that. So start requesting!

A short break

Chapter 23 of Lords is up. I didn’t mean for it to be late this week, but I had very little free time to focus on corrections. So it’s not the beta’s fault, it was mine. I’m going to say it was a short vacation.

Somehow I did finish the drawing I promised, but it didn’t turn out the way I wanted it to. Their heads kept appearing bigger than their bodies no matter how many times I adjusted them. Maybe at a much later date I can come back and do it all over again so it’ll look better. But for now, you can see Satel with his new seafarer eye- and much more!

I may complain about the heads, but I’m pretty sure everyone will be focused on the lower half of the picture. XD

Here’s the link to the picture: Private Time. Enjoy!

Getting to the End

Chapter 22 of Lords is up and after that we’ll be entering the last arc of the book. Tia will now be returning to the sea where she started in the beginning of the book, and all questions that were left behind will be answered. I do have plans for a fourth book, but like this one, it might be a while before I get started. It’s not a beta problem this time, but that I’ve been glancing at The Rise of Heretics (my first book) and been itching to fix up the chapters.

I did say that I would have a drawing ready to show for this chapter, but unfortunately it’s taking longer than I anticipated. I decided to ‘ink’ the lines with the photoshop pen tool, and while the final result looks amazing, it does take a lot of time and effort. I’ll update this post when I do have the image ready to show.

Bad Timing

Interlude III of Lords is up and it tells how Satel got into the condition he’s in. I want to say more, but it requires a read through of the chapter and I don’t want to spoil it. Let’s just say he has to make a choice in the end, and both paths lead to the person he wants to see the most- Tia. The choice he ends up making won’t be revealed until the next chapter though, even though the choice does seem obvious. ….Like I hadn’t left enough hints. XD

Anyway, I’m finding myself struggling to keep up with my old writing routine. I thought it was because of a lot of bad luck (like losing my laptop), but I realize that it’s summer, and I usually don’t write much during the summer. I tend to finish off stories by April and take a break, and if I have the urge to write, I take on small projects like one-shots or short stories. The reason I take it easy is because my father likes to take fishing trips, and I tend to go with him. It’s hard to write on the road, and we do go off to some far places with no guarantee of internet service.

It doesn’t mean that I’m giving up or anything, just that updates will get slow. Then again they were already getting slow since my first beta got her job. I’ll try harder to catch up.

New Stuff

Chapter 21 of Lords is finally up. It was actually ready two-ish (probably three by now) days ago, but I didn’t get a notice from Google that the beta was done checking and it sat there untouched until now. So this one is my bad. But this chapter did take longer than usual to go through.

I did get a new refurbished laptop with Windows 7 and all files but my photoshop brushes transferred over. I have to download some new sketch brushes and get used to the newness. So in commemoration of me trying to get back in the groove of drawing, I will make some Tia and Satel eye candy in time for chapter 22. Interlude III is coming up next, so it’ll be some time before then.

*Cries*

Well at least chapter 20 is up. Also xoxluurve has volunteered her services in beta-ing so that’s great news.

But, unfortunately, there’s some bad news. My laptop went and cooked my video card, so I probably lost it. I want to fix it so I won’t have to upgrade to that awful Windows 8, but it looks like it’s going to take some time. At least I was able to take everything I had on that computer and move it to my older and slower desktop computer (still on Windows XP).

It’s a bit difficult to type on this, and my family wants to go on a week long vacation, and I can’t take this big machine with me. Luckily I’m a few chapters ahead and I can send them to xoxluurve for checking while I’m away. Hopefully everything with the laptop will be figured out soon so I can get back to writing. I miss the story already.

Hiatus

Sorry guys, but I’m going to have to go on a short hiatus on Fatesbane. For one, I need time to forget what I’ve written so I can try and correct the chapters by myself. I have rather good memory, and when I’m going over something I’ve written only days ago, my brain remembers what I wanted to be there and can’t see the mistakes.

Second, I’m very busy preparing for A-kon, the anime convention being held in Dallas. I already finished a second Erza costume (the one of her ruffled shirt and pleated skirt), and I’m trying to see if I can make a formal dress before the convention starts. It’ll be held June 6th-8th, so I won’t be writing until it’s over. It won’t be a long hiatus, so don’t worry about the story. It will be finished.

I do have chapter 20 done, but, again, it’s hard to correct it without help. I’ll hold onto it until everything is over. Thanks for your patience everyone!

Cosplay Costume

Chapter 19 of Lords is up, and I’ve finished sewing my Erza Scarlet costume. This was the first costume I ever made without premade patterns. I’m seriously thinking about going into a custom costume business, but I need more practice with other body types. I’m not going to limit it to just anime characters either. Maybe someday I’ll make the outfits Tia wears in the series. Down below is me debuting my costume at Dallas’ Comic-Con with an Erza wig and her Fairy Tail tattoo. But the full front and back can be seen here if anyone is interested.

ErzaCosplay

But back on Fatesbane stuff- I think I might be getting close to the end, and with a new arc starting to bud, I might end up having a fourth book after all. Though I still have the problem of no beta to check everything. Well I usually take long breaks between books anyway, so hopefully someone might step forward and offer by then.

Still Need a Beta

Chapter 18 0f Lords is up, and the current beta had enough time for a quick glance. That’s enough for a plot and character check, but I can’t guarantee good grammar. If you see any mistakes, please tell me so I can correct.

I do what I can to find the mistakes myself, but I usually need the chapter to sit for a while so I can forget what I’ve put down. Since I have a good memory, it’s hard to see past what my brain thinks is there. This is why I appreciate another pair of eyes to find what I can’t.

Anyway, I’ll try to keep going, though I might be slowing down in the coming weeks. Anime and Comic conventions are coming up, and I’ve been making my own Erza Scarlet costumes to wear to them. I might be a few days late every week in posting, but they will be up.
