While most people are out partying on Saturday, moi's watching Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai to heal my soul and calculating my next move. As for the latter, I've made some updates to the website: I added the link to For Love of Despair to the Fiction Dimension (which also means, naturally, I got accepted on AO3 ^_^), and I've put Elementals on hold for my novel Gamespace. That's right, I've traded imagining Pokemon are real but murderous natural disasters in the Dark Ages for a gaming CEO trying to dismantle his newest virtual reality system that has a 1% chance to kill its users. Whether you're a fan of Pokemon or Sword Art Online (or Log Horizon for the elite; .Hack Sign for the hipsters), you won't be disappointed by my next to works.
On a not so cheerful note, a recent brother of mine has died. We weren't related by blood, but we grew up together in the same household for a large portion of our lives. We fought together, ate together, partied together, shared our dreams, ambitions, and he even endured my own round Chuunibyou when I was younger (I thought by copying Drowzee's movements from the Pokemon anime, I could curse people. He actually believed it worked!). Even though we drifted apart during the later years of our lives, those memories burn my soul whenever I realize he's not with us anymore. I will write a poem to immortalize his memory, and keep it besides my works for eternity, but for now, I share my grief with you. Peace out, and hold the ones closest to you dear. You won't know what you have until it's gone.
