Something about this bloggie

Ok, I admit that I've failed somewhere before. But anyway welcome. Just a brief intro on what you should expect here:
1. Football. Not gonna post much of that any soon since season is over. :S
2. Anime, Games, etc. Just abt anything conceivable under the Japanese radar barring anything and everything Rule 34. Now that's illegal. Period. -.-;
3. Music. Everything to do with it is listed under the tab.
5. Unacceptable humour: Anything and everything is fair game here. As long as I don't get rounded up by the ISA. -.-'

The Known World=Fantasy world building in process. I: Used to be glossary, now devoted to random rambling; II: Character Concepts; III: Lore.
7. der Wolf=my Fictionpress account under the moniker Tsumujikaze no Soujutsu. A Ranger's Tale is hosted under this page. :)
8. New section now upped. Maybe I should also gun for upping A Ranger's Tale here since I do have this funny feeling that traffic coming to here is way more than whatever I'll get in FP.

Statement of intent: Everything said here is a figment of personal opinion, be it me or anybody commenting. I try to be responsible, but my parents=/=parents of the world.

@Druid of Luhn: Crap. Should have remembered far earlier to give you the credit for your CSS text box code. :(

A/N: But sadly, it seems that your CSS text box code has now been halved efficiency wise. :(

That most important note I should have added: Any images posted in this blog are NOT my own stuff. I got them from Google image search, I don't earn any shit by being a thief and liar. Those responsible for the pictures, rest assured that you all are great artists in your own regards. Sadly, we all know what limited space means in terms of posting.

Latest Note: Changed alignment for my page widgets due to my worry that I can't centre align the thing.

Note on A Ranger's Tale: In case any complaining fella wants to have a legal case with me, let this be known that A Ranger's Tale is rated M by default. I've upped the swearing and somewhat a bit on the dark/gritty factor. You all have been warned, let no little boy and girl enter the forbidden realm.

Latest on ART: A Ranger's Tale now starting to kick back in gear. But I really hate the insanely fluctuating climate here in S'pore.

P.S: Oh, and one more thing. Vid below is yet another ideal OP for A Ranger's Tale.

Plans (?) for A Sea of Arms and Craft

Original plan: finish Part 2 of Great Burritain.

Final outcome: fail.

Well, guess it might be high time for me to write this little piece of personal bs...

So what now on 2nd arc of A Ranger's Tale?
Firstly, allow this bastard here to say that I'm gonna start killing off characters. Already I've got at least two characters slated to bite the dust. I'm not gonna spoil it for you, if I managed to pull off a Ned, then I must be the greatest bastard ever lived. Bar G.R.R Trollolol ofc...

I think there are two types of writers, the architects and the gardeners. The architects plan everything ahead of time, like an architect building a house. They know how many rooms are going to be in the house, what kind of roof they're going to have, where the wires are going to run, what kind of plumbing there's going to be. They have the whole thing designed and blueprinted out before they even nail the first board up.

The gardeners dig a hole, drop in a seed and water it. They kind of know what seed it is, they know if planted a fantasy seed or mystery seed or whatever. But as the plant comes up and they water it, they don't know how many branches it's going to have, they find out as it grows.
~George R.R. Martin on two different types of writers.

So what's next for...
Alestrial Eliaden:
This Park Shin Hye lookalike has gotta be the spotlight character, no? I'll have to admit that initially, my attachment to her from a reader's POV is "meh..." and that's it. However, times will always change, people will change accordingly. That includes me also, I've discovered that somewhere along the road, I've grown quite attached to her so as to speak. And no, I not PSH fan, I certified neutral, I double confirm still the author (read: limpeh is still lim-laopeh).

If The Wolf, the Boy, the Maiden Fair is all about Guy Cody's development, then w/o a doubt A Sea of Arms and Craft will shift the whole BSOD focus onto Ales. How she reacts to harsh reality will go a long way in shaping her character. In a very real sense, I can identify her with Emiya Shirou of Fate/stay night. No, I'm not propagating any Rule 63, my darkest years are behind me now.*

One glaring contrast between Ales of the 1st arc and the current Ales is the greatest proof of her current identity: a harlot. This has nothing to do with post-rape or no rape. Rather, this is my way of creating an identity paradox in her. I don't have to spoil this little morsel for you guys b/c I've alrdy implied that in her attitude towards Eliador (which to be fair is the bastard responsible).

Ever wondered why compared to her previous noble lady look, I opted for another design hammering home this point, i.e. having short hair instead of long flowing locks? As Eliador had pointed out, having one's hair shorn will mean the girl in question is a harlot. Period. See? I've alrdy planted a BSOD bomb.

Note: Have to say I did hesitate on whether I should do this far at first. Thankfully, I took heart from G.R.R. Martin's words that...

Art is not a democracy. People don't get to vote on how it ends.

And may I include the SOP as well...
