Hey gorgeous peeps!

I decided to make this post (which will always remain at the top of my journal) for those of you who ever get curious about when the heck I'm done writing a chapter or what projects I work on. Maybe it'll help keep me focused. XD


THE LATEST:

*1st October
The next ATL chapter will be delayed. My head is still in "Xia Week". We had the pleasure of having Junsu perform for us multiple times and he was a metre away from me too many times to count so...my friends and I are still in Junsu Land. No one else exists. (Sorry to anyone who follow me on twitter. Or if you do, "NIPPLE RUB!!!!!!!
" That is all.) The last time this happened so bad after a concert was with Kylie Minogue when I was in primary school! loll. So yes, I am only just starting to get back into my YunJae mode today. =P


*26th September
Posted Chapter Six of ATL.


*16th September
Posted Chapter Five of ATL.


*11th September
There will be a slight delay with the posting of ATL Chap 5 (I'm aiming for the weekend). The main reason being: I can't actually MOVE! I went to the gym with good intentions with a friend but doing a cardio weight-lifting circuit that my body had not worked itself up for was a bigggg mistake. It hurts to sit, it hurts to turn over in bed, it hurts to walk, and I can't lift my arms up (there is good food in the high cupboards I can no longer reach up for!!). I normally write by hand, lying on my side and that is hurting so much. Alternatively, I write a few things straight onto the laptop but it hurts to lean over for long periods. So I am basically just stuck waiting for my muscles to calm down. It's already been a few days and still painful. ^^;; But emotionally, I've admittedly had a bipolar DBSK week with some hormone-induced emoshinki patches, so in a way it is good timing that it has happened now -- I can get over it whilst I can't move anyway. XDD

*5th September
Posted Chapter Four of ATL.





I just realised I have hit 500+ people having friended this journal. Um...wow. Considering my policy is never to lock my main fics under pretty much any circumstance, I am so touched by 500+ caring enough to friend away anyway. I won't lie, I teared up just an incy-wincy bit. Thank you all so much from the bottom of my little heart. <3

Guys! Guys!! The comedy continues.


This is definitely becoming a hilarious Stephen Colbert VS arch-nemesis Rain situation.



stephen-colbert_320

^ "RAIIIIIIIIIIIIIN!!!!"


Thank you for viewing this comedy with me. It's fun having you guys around to laugh with. So with that in mind, there was an update in my ARCH NEMSIS lolsy situation that I thought was too good to keep to myself. I now have a visual demonstration of how nutty one of the coincidences has been (not the obscure one though. That was episode one and this is from episode two! lolll). Get ready to nod and laugh with me.

Visuals, my darlings, visuals... )



But so this post isn't just me laughing at myself, I thought I should make myself useful and tell you some things about my new fic! =D

LOTS OF INFO ABOUT MY NEW FIC... )
wild_terrain: (JaeHo Forever yours)
Hi there.

So this is the most bizarre post I'm likely to ever make... I guess you could consider it a kind of funny story.


Consider me a lost puppy right now.

Basically, this weekend I was going to make a (small) announcement. That announcement was that I had a new fic I was going to start posting.

I am aware TB;MS has two or three chapters left still but this new fic was just going to be a complimentary project I could have fun with at the same time to balance out my emotions. (TB;MS is very taxing on my emotions. I love it but it is one hell of a bitch to write.)

The new fic makes me laugh. It's good fun even though it's not strictly comedy (FLANGST, baby). I already had a banner for it, I had an OST for it (for my own purposes, I wouldn't enforce it on others because we all connect with different music), and more importantly, I had a title that I’ve never wanted to change since the minute it came into my head over a year ago: Across The Line (oh the many metaphors). All that was left was a summary for it (and I think the majority of us cry at the thought of having to write a decent summary XD).

But... A lovely little spanner has been thrown in the works. I don't know whether to laugh or cry.




^LOL sorry, couldn't help myself. He's too cute.


You have to be kidding me... )

Hello people who are reading this. ^^



Today marks the 60th anniversary of the end of the Korean War -- 27 July 1953. As the author of Echo of Dusk & Dawn, I wished to take a few minutes to mark that date and reflect on it a little bit.


Last year I was fortunate enough to visit the Korean War Memorial in Seoul and pay my respects to the lives that were lost in the war that inspired (so to speak) my first YunJae fanfiction. (I had previously done the same in my own country's war memorial, where a section is dedicated to the soldiers here who fought for South Korea under the UN).


I'd like to thank the really sweet Korean gentleman volunteer who spoke some English and took me around  the memorial, giving me extra little facts. He was so super sweet!



P2210338
^ One of the war monuments in front of the memorial building. If you enlarge the photo HERE (had to resize it ><), the number "6-25" refers to the 1950 Korean War (ie. it started 25th June).


In ways the war never officially ended since there was no peace treaty signed, and we all know tension remains between the North and South. Let us hope there is never a repeat of June 25 1950. The same goes for every country in the world. Unfortunately, different wars are still going on right now across the world and I sincerely wish that one day, somehow, such violence can be a distant memory. All we can do is concentrate on the grassroots and be kind to the people around us.

Some more pics from my visit... )



As for the Yunho and JaeJoong of EoD, I can only imagine what they would be doing. I suppose sitting together on their couch, reminiscing about the 63 years they have known each other; the day they first met, and the time they lost and found each other again. (And all the times JaeJoong's wanted to whack Yunho with his walking stick and vice versa, haha!) ^^ <3


And to answer some questions, yes, self-publishing EoDawn is still something I am interested in doing. I am trying to focus on finishing my current fics at the moment though before I revisit EoD -- I can't publish EoDawn until my perfectionism is satisfied with proofreading the whole long thing. It was written 5-6 years ago and some of the way sentences are phrased make me cringe a little so... All in good time, I guess? ^^;;

Chapter: [38/ 40?]
Rating: MA15+
Genre: AU
[FLANGST, mystery, spirituality, romance]
Summary: Philophobia… The fear of falling in love or being in love. I didn’t know such a thing existed until I met him… Kim JaeJoong was my age—a youthful 25 years—and the owner of a popular café, yet he was already known around town as the mysterious hermit who had chosen to completely withdraw from the world. How on earth could someone so young be afraid of loving others to the point of secluding themselves from all human beings? What was he afraid of? What was he hiding? I just didn’t understand it. And by that stage, the need to understand it was all I could think about... In fact, he was all I could think about…


Jung Yunho… For all of my life I had grown up away from the limelight. I couldn’t stand being noticed by anybody, and for a long time I thankfully never was. But then you came and suddenly you were everywhere – waving to me as I swept the café after closing, saying hello to me as you cycled past the bench I was sitting on, helping me carry my groceries inside whilst talking non-stop to me as if we were actually friends… Why are you always around making my heart thump erratically? Why do you even care? The more you try to explore this town, the more I need to step up and protect you from your own curiosity, because I know It is out there and I know It wants to harm you…

A/N: Enjoy my lovelies! Last time we were here, Yunho had popped back briefly into town to let JaeJoong know he had been on The Island and the legal owner of it wasn't actually JaeJoong...

A/N: *Crawls out of hiding* I exist. This fic still exists. I took an appallingly long time to write this chapter and I am so apologetic for that as you know. I have been away for so long, both photobucket AND Livejournal have gotten different layouts and extra functions. I suddenly feel so noob! Oh goddddddd lol.

Having big breaks between updates really doesn't work in my favour for a fic with so many random details that are supposed to make up a bigger picture so I will definitely refresh your memories!


WHAT HAS HAPPENED SO FAR FOR ALL MY POOR READERS WHO HAVEN'T READ THIS IN FAR TOO LONG:

- YUNHO'S DREAMS.
For a long time Yunho has been having special Dreams that either try to warn him of tricky future events or try and guide him to answers he's been looking for. The first involved Yunho lifting up a lid and finding childrens toys. The next forewarned him of JaeJoong's drowning. And the third showed him three new visuals: a photo of himself as a kid in hospital, his grandmother's ring, and a stained newspaper article which Yun eventually found one day on a train.

- JAEJOONG AND YUNHO.
It looked like JaeJoong and Yunho were finally getting somewhere. JaeJoong was close to agreeing to try and see things the way Yunho sees them -- that the curse is actually just personified paranoia. He started trying to see it that way too... But then it was a task just a little too strong from him and he ended up trying to flush Yunho's anti-depressants down the toilet in case they were related to the curse. Yunho blew his top and decided enough was enough--if JaeJoong believed his paranoia over Yunho then he was done with JaeJoong. His last words to JaeJoong were more or less the message: have fun in your shitty world where you will always be unhappy. Oh, and he referred to JaeJoong as "Hermit" the cruel (but apt) nickname/label the townspeople gave JaeJoong for years. Ouch. Needless to say, JaeJoong didn't appreciate that one. 

Now on with the story!


You still haven't spoken for months?... )

(This isn't an update. If I accidentally got people's hopes up, I apologise.)

The Confessions of a Fanfic Writer... (lol)

The Beacon; My Siren... Man, the thoughts I have on that fic.

To make the final chapters the best they can be, I've set myself the task to re-read bits of the 700+ pages I have written thus far. The things you learn when you re-read... And the things you cringe at when you re-read... ergh. I realised I started writing TBMS before the lawsuit and that was so lonnng ago now (sob). You learn new writing tips every day, so I am really struggling to re-read the bits I wrote years ago. Chapter One was so bad I had to edit bits, fix grammar, and re-uploaded it to LJ LOL. It was so appalling to me, I could not let it slide. Every fic writer out there knows what I am talking out--how torturous it is to re-read your old work. ^^;;

I've said this before, but a real downside to writing fanfiction if you upload it before you've written it as a whole is that you can so easily screw it up. During my short time re-reading, I've already had enough hindsight to think: dammmn, I should have cut that whole part out, or gah, that whole arc is unnecessary. It's the kind of thing that you can only see once you've written the whole story/most of the story. But it's too late to fix any of it... (and I suppose that even though some parts are really long-winded, people still like reading it because these days we miss YunJae and want as much of them as we can with no precious time cut out even if being more concise makes a better story lol. Or maybe it's just me).

Anyhoos, my point is that I do apologise that this fic turned out being more complicated than it needed to be. An idea was simple in my head but then when it came to writing certain parts, it wasn't simple. An element that was supposed to be simple, spawned into something I started losing control over. That in turn created an arc that didn't need to be there (I've complained about this to my beta already, but now I am complaining to you, haha). This means that I've had to go with the flow even though I started not liking the flow. That's probably why it has taken much longer to write than I ever thought (seriously, 700+ pages is insane. So many facepalms right now lol).  I once read that a mental block isn't really that you lose a muse, but a sign that something is wrong/isn't working in your story that you are unhappy about. I believe that now.

I will continue writing it to the end, though. Even if I've lost control with some parts, it's still better than an unfinished story. I know writers can't help it, but an unfinished story is probably the worst thing you could ever do. So rest assured, I have a strict policy with myself to always finish what I start--and boy does it work. I've had so many other fic ideas but I've never been able to properly write them because of the voice in my head yelling: CREATIVITY DENIED: FINISH TBMS FIRST! lolll.

With this rant, I guess I just wanted to let you know my current feelings. I normally err over revealing behind the scenes thoughts of fanfics because you can transmit your own thoughts into people's heads (eg: I hate this chapter, this part was all wrong coz blahhhh = the reader can then think, 'oh now that I think about it, that's true. Yuck.'). And the last thing I'd want would be to people to think: yehh TBMS does suck, now that I think about it. LOL. I just could no longer keep my thoughts to myself though. I'm sorry TBMS is so long-winded. I'm sorry Jae is the most fickle person in the world. It wasn't supposed to be this complicated. If I could start again, half this fic would be changed lol. But I can't, so please bear with me. Having said all this, I still adore TBMS. Buried beneath the blah-blah, the themes I wished to convey are still very much there and it's verrrrrrry close to my heart in ways I can't even begin to explain. So TBMS, I love you, I do, I just wish you were better behaved, lollll.


If I become a better writer one day, I'd love to re-do TBMS.

But it still amazes me that despite everything, people still come to my journal to read what I write and feel beautiful things for TBMS. You guys are truly incredible and it means so much to me, really. Thank you to everyone still here on the journey with me. And to the people who took a different path (whether it be from emoshinki, interest in new groups, love for new pairings in other groups, or TBMS wasn't for them), I am sorry to see you go but I hope you've found joy in other areas of your life or alternate fandoms. And to all the newwww people who joined me, god love ya! I hate the quiet so it's nice having people around. =D

That's me, over and out. Wish me luck finishing the last little bit....which isn't little, but compared to the 700+ pages so far, it is. =P
