Okay, so ES is up, you can find it at http://elfsong.smackjeeves.com but right now it's just the cover and the first page. Updates are Mondays and Saturdays, but they may have to change when I go back to school. That's in August.
Here's the summary, word for word, straight from the site:
"Kirei is an average guy... well, unless you count the fact that he's an elf. And he's just found a human boy bleeding in the forest.
Ichigo was your average 19-year-old guy; unwillingly engaged to a princess, and just been mugged by a gang of robbers. He completely doesn't expect to live, but when he wakes up and sees that he's been saved by an elf, how is he going to react?
Over time, what will change? Can Ichigo get to accept Kirei? Or is this going to end badly?
(Rating: OT 16+ for language, shounen-ai, and violence)
A feudal story in one act (or more?)"
As of now, I have the first script finished, a before story called 'Kirei Gaiden' explaining why the hell Kirei lives alone, a before story called 'Ichigo Gaiden' that gives insight into Ichigo's strange little mind, both parts of a sequel that is tentatively titled 'Land of Twilight', 13 pages finished (lucky 13!) and a chibi comic that I still need to finish and load on my deviant art. I'm a busy girl... this in addition to cl101's first chapter being five pages from done. I'm not kidding!
Yep, cl101 will be on an official hiatus after the last five pages are loaded. This is mostly to give me time to not only look over my scripts and edit them, but to convert some of the things I've written for the comic from story to script and focus more on ES. Right now it's my baby and needs nurturing like a child would... no, I'm not psycho. I'm just a student who needs to focus more on her grades.
Speaking of! I just got my results from the CAAP exam for composition back the other day. For those who don't know, the CAAP exam for composition is fairly simple. You wake up earlier than you'd like, go to a room for a couple of hours and write two essays in that time. Very simple in concept, but when you get in there and try to write in the time limit, you find it's more difficult than you thought. I couldn't finish the first one (I was half a sentence away from being completely done) but the second went better. And in the end I got a 4.000 out of 6 on both of them. My rank ended up being that 97-98% of students who had taken the same exam scored at or below my rank. So I guess I did good. ^_^' To be honest I was asleep when my mom brought the letter in with the phone, so while I was talking to my friend in Iraq (he's coming home in August, he thinks, but it'll probably end up being September) I was trying to wake up and read this letter. I only recall the number because mom told me.
Anyone else here have emo relatives? I've got nothing against emos (I have my emo days... more often than not) but damn it if my uncle doesn't stop being so whiny I swear I will lose it! He got a new computer, all right? Well, said computer runs Vista (ugh...) and I've heard very few good reviews for it. I know next to nothing about this OS, don't wanna know, and yet he persists in asking me what the hell is going on with it. So finally I told him I don't know and he should read a book or something on it. Well, now he's getting to where he wants me to help on the internet, something I do know. Mostly he wants an e-mail. Mom set that up. He wants me to get him a year-long astrological profile. Not that big of a deal, except...
He never told me the site, and he always calls when I'm about to go somewhere or I can't log on for whatever reason. Saturday he called about five times or so, asking if I could do this for him. Mom was off at a bead show, and I figured she'd want the phone lines open in case of emergency, so I told him that and he called back asking if she was doing this to spite him. I'm getting fed up. I got home from town about ten thirty, I was tired, I had a new CD (the soundtrack from RENT, original Broadway cast, yep!) and he said to forget it and we didn't have to even talk to him anymore. Now I'm sorry, but I'd like to get an opinion here:
How inclined would you be to help someone out if they kept calling for it at inconvenient times, pretty well demanding that you do this on their schedule, ending calls in profanity every time you explained that you couldn't, and then going all whiny emo on you when you'd been patient?
Yeah, I'm not inclined to. And I'm going to tell him as much next time he decides to act like that. I can cuss just as well as he can (as anyone who has seen my LJ posts can tell -///-) and I am not going to be treated like a slave.
Well, I think I've griped enough. Sorry to whine. Ja, minna-san.
