Just some trivia. I'm going to post info on the titles of Gold Saint affiliated with Mars, officially or not. You can also check YAHOO Q&A (Japan). Seiya is not listed.

Slight spoilers if you have never seen Omega. You'll know if you read DAWN OF END.

It's like every time I get a story idea for Seishin, I end up researching heavily and finding the name of an obscure (?) samurai. If not, I keep wanting to find a means to adding a noble's name because the samurai make up a ton of the Japanese history. I cant' ignore them.

Somehow, looking up the Fuuma's leader Hojo Soun, led me to Suruga-Imagawa samurai Norimitsu Oshika.

HISTORY/SEISHIN Ramble: OSHIKA Norimitsu (小鹿 範満)
Not much is known about him or is relatives, or from what I gathered, but it seemed that everything ended when Norimitsu was killed (his brother or/and son committing suicide at the end of the revolt). Both he and his father were in a succession dispute; Noriyori (範頼) was his father, his childhood name being Chiyoakimaru (千代秋丸). During the Eikyo era, Noriyori opposed his younger brother Imagawa Noritada becoming leader of the Imagawa.

For Ujichika (Noritada's grandson) and Norimitsu, this starts all over again.

For Seishin, this starts all over again. This competition is probably the only or the most notable record of this family. Norimitsu becomes regent through Hojo Soun's recommendation.

After Uchichika becomes of adult age, Norimitsu does not give up regency.

At this moment, I don't 100% understand the details behind Noritada vs Noriyori.

For Seishin, Norimitsu plans to assassinate Hojo Soun with the help of Miura and Ashina family of Sagami.

RECENT UPDATE(S): Devember 10 - 12, 2014

So, this week I updated two stories!

Penitent Feathers (over 800 words) was finally updated with a new chapter! And I actually enjoyed typing it. I like El Cid! It's still not over though. I think there's two more chapters left or so I predict. It SHOULD be two, but like I said in previous updates, I'm trying to aim short due to being too occupied.

UZUMAKI is also updated. The story has been updated the most recently. I wanted to take it somewhere; Sasuke appears early; Gakkō-Shiro means "school castle", while Gaki can mean brat and hungry ghosts from the Deva Realms or something like that. It can work both ways: Kids are trained harshly to become demonic weapons for war.

HoGW needs to come next, hopefully before the year ends.

No new stories. I might make a new Fan Trilogy for 2015??? Personally, I think I should add more Cyber Formula and Fire Emblem stories. Law of the Sword could use a sequel yeah?

Another ramble, more friendly. This is update on stories.

United We Soar
I feel like I'm really stuck, I made this story to focus on the mind of a new fighter pilot, especially when he is entering his first combat operations. I also wanted to create a fighter plane. But in regards to the details behind the war, and how the story will end, I am really stuck. The next chapter has to do with a phone call, and shouldn't take my long at all. Afterward is the start of a combat mission. I must've really messed up going along with this.

Stalwart Silver
I am told a few times that it is "well-written" and that I should publish it in other places. Extremely flattering. But, SS feels like a waste. I will complete it, but it feels like a shallow and pointless story. The idea was for an uncanny boy to understand "loving" a mortal. At the least, to learn how to show empathy outside of duty. It might be impossible for me in a short story.

Seishin Ninja Series
I can't think of anything. I have many characters and I just can't craft any plot ideas. I don't know what it is. I must be really stubborn in wanting to make this series good, and because of that I hesitate. I still think, "It's not Japan..." "It's not what I want to convey", "I feel like I must do research", "my research is limited".

If this continues, the Iga Tensho stories won't happen in years.

Always difficult, but I enjoy the story. I can't wait to show more. Also, there might be a 2nd season.
I recently rekindled my interest but I need alone time to focus better.

Don't write while tired.

I'm blogging because ... I'm just mad and I'm not concerned about consequences over criticizing teen pregnancy.

I seriously don't care. Call me misogynist, I'm fine with it. No, I don't think pregnant teens are "whores", "sluts", add any female derogative word. Pregnancy is not interconnected with prostitution or sleeping a lot. It just means that you received semen in the uterus, okay?

I am at a state where I can't get over it and I am insensitive because it has the potential of screwing people up. Even those who a part of the support. Or rather, I'm just in an unfortunate situation where I hate people. We develop our reproductive system at a young age, does that mean have kids? Or we can't think at all?

I absolutely dislike TP, especially when the parents are so self-centered and use children to feign that they have the backbone to face responsibility AND that they'll stay out of trouble or stop creating it. If it makes sense. I also don't like sexual pressure; I didn't see it as the GATE to being awesome, never did. I didn't give in to this feeling that I was required to have a boyfriend during high school, I didn't feel that I had to look cool because school was difficult enough as it was. Flirting was too temporary in school; it felt like a game, and it wasn't reliable in the first place.

TP hate is quite easy because there is this superficial distaste in "kids having kids". It's a blot on kids. Paternity shows and Teen Mom shows are a blot on "parents". They are blot on those who made a different decision aside from them -- like me, who didn't give in to pressure. Was I wrong?

BTW, this is not a rape case. This is not a trauma here, which I am sure I'd be more sympathetic.

One reason why I can't get much done is because I'm watching someone else's child.

With that out of the way, babysitting really breaks my focus. I'm constantly up and out of my seat. I have to hear the continuous sounds of baby music and baby chatter, and watch my niece so that she doesn't hurt herself.

SolAka is still in it's draft stage and I don't think I'm halfway done with the chapter. I feel like if I rush, I'll lose.

Thanks for reading my nasty ramble. I hope that you are being patient.

January 2, 2014 (EST)

Welcome to 2014! Here's a surprise: Uzumaki is uploaded. As with my Seishin series, I want to deliver a strong image using ninja. From comedy to action, Uzumaki should have a bit of everything in it. I'm also serious about different cultures. The prologue only took me a day to do (started on Dec 31) and finished proofreading on the 1st [of Jan].

More information on Blog/Twitter when I have time.

More HoGW and P.Feathers on the way of course.

Still haven't decided on the one shots just yet. Let's hope that 2014 is an eventful year for MGW.
