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.

About MGW

Just making a sticky post and C&Ping from Wikia:



ABOUT ME AND NAME
Master Gray Wolf, or MGW for short, is the pseudonym of an amateur writer born and raised in Michigan, United States. Her first online fanfiction was based on Pokémon; later on, MGW would get introduced to the anime/game Monster Rancher and would develop a fan-series that is still in progress. MGW uploads works on both Fanfiction.net and Fictionpress.net, and also ArchiveofOurOwn.

MGW is named after a character from the anime/game "Monster Rancher". In Japanese, his name is Gingiraiga (ギンギライガー, 銀ライガー, Silver Raiga); "Raiga" is what Tiger is called Japanese. In the anime, he is the younger brother of Tiger / Raiga and is one of the Big BAD FOUR (English version) or 『ワルモン四天王』 (warumon shitennō, Evil Monster Four Devas/Heavenly Kings).

LITERARY STYLE
MGW has a tendency to write action/adventure or comedic stories for mostly young adults and young children. However, an exception to this rule is the fiction series Seishin Ninjutsu Chronicle, where some of the stories contain detailed violence and non-explicit sexual themes. The themes of teamwork, friendship, morals, and justice are frequent. Furthermore, because history, geography, sociology, and politics are a part of the author's interests, MGW likes to incorporate such elements into her stories and mirror real-life as close as possible.
MGW also prefers creating short chapters of around 1500-2000 words or less, but may make exceptions. This is for the convenience of herself and proofreading.

MGW is a long time fan of Monster Rancher. She enjoys both the game series and the cartoon, and the name "Master Gray Wolf" is derived from an animal character from the series. She sees her two stories Howl of Gray Wolf and Tiger of Freedom as her signatures works, and they are mostly based on the Monster Rancher games.

MGW likes the military and so far has created stories set in battle. United We Soar reflects her love of the Air Force and airplanes; Heroic Blaze SolAka is her first Science Fiction (super robot based) series. She also likes history and mythology, integrating both into Stalwart Silver and Seishin.

MGW has ambivalent views on fanfiction. Majority of her own fanfiction works are based on video games such as Monster Rancher (Farm) and Pokémon, and widely uses the monsters from the games with little to no connection from the TV and comic series. However, she has expressed disdain for fanfiction, especially those of NC-17 (Lemon)/MA rating, saying that it can ruin her image of the fandom. She primarily focuses on Howl of Gray Wolf and its succeeding stories, and has decided against creating fanfiction in 2009. However in late 2013, MGW has decided to create short Saint Seiya FFs, deeply inspired by the fans of Europe and Latin America.

MGW has developed two stories about Digimon, but they were removed from Fanfiction.net. One was possibly removed due to "original content" not derived from the animated or comic series. The remake of Pokefighters was canceled in 2011.

Something from one of my notepad files:

Capitalism (private) vs Socialism (public) /Communism (Full public)

Capitalism is for private sectors services. Owned by people or an individual, not by a government or communities, and where people have to work for money, so they can buy things they need or want, such as food. Capitalism mostly has a "free market" economy, which means people buy and sell things by their own judgment. Mainly the United States's system.

Socialism is the economic idea that all industries should be owned by the government (public sector), rather than by businessmen, because the government will look after its employees better than businessmen would.

Communism is a type of socialism. Complete control/owner of economy and NO social classes. The goal of communism is for workers to take control of factories and business and to manage the economy democratically. COMMON OWNERSHIP, which is not divided into the people. This is NOT for private/non-gov sectors (ie: Capitalism), wage labor, etc.

WORDS:

- Deregulation is the removal or simplification of government rules and regulations that constrain the operation of market forces. Deregulation does not mean elimination of laws against fraud or property rights, but eliminating or reducing government control of how business is done, thereby moving toward a more laissez-faire (free from intervention), free market.

- unregulated privatization = transfer from public (govt) to private sector.

- Public Sector = Government. What communism is for.

- Fascism = Strict Union (the nation/nationalism) & corporate reps negotiations. There is authoritarian leadership. Plus Fascism has led people in power to perform some radical actions, such as using police brute force.

NOTE to some people:

- The Nazi Party opposed Communism.

- Everybody uses and accepts different governments all around the world. Your tastes varies.

Since Seishin is getting significantly redone, I am deleting some useless MS word files from my desktop containing character and mixed-up history information. Since the info is old, it does carry ideas. Who knows, I may even go ahead with the ideas. Therefore, something might be seen as spoilers.

Nothing will be covered; nothing needs to be highlighted.

I also have something else here:
猟申/ryoshin): A spin-off of 軒猿 (のきざる/Nokizaru), a hunter employed by Uesugi Kenshin. It might’ve been a Fuuma but left.

I made a list of names I might want to use (maybe not in Seishin):

Hiji Jūshirō (土 十四郎)
Tōsaka Heiji (藤阤 平二)
Shinyama Kamoburō (新山 鴨三郎)

What are the kind of thoughts that I have concerning Seishin series? Why do I think it's taking so long? Or rather, why did I cancel it? I always told myself that I had lack of knowledge, or a fixed memory, on:

1.) Japanese HISTORY and culture, both modern and pre-modern. I had to return to different Wikis and other encycolpedias so many times. "Wait, is this connected?" Alos, body-language.

2.) Japanese Architecture. I'm fascinated by the houses.

3.) Geography and climate. This isn't too bad though.

4.) Weapon construction (ie: tataba, metalworking, etc)

I collected a lot of info on ninja, but I don't think it's much of a concern compared to the above listed. Also, there are so many stories on the samurai compared to the lower class. Culture also includes how people are named back then.

Another problem is how to write it, to capture the Japanese aesthetics properly.

So, I'll take it slowly on what I think I should keep in mind. Since I'm doing just short stories, I'll just gather up what I sufficiently need for a particular story so I won't overwhelm myself.

I think Anonymous comments are allowed.

So, this is the little area for questions you want to ask me related to my works on fanfiction.net and Fictionpress.net (will be linked from profiles). I'm not into answers personal questions since I don't think I have anything impressive to reveal.

Game-related questions, such as for Monster Rancher (Farm) are possible.

Comments are okay too.

At first, I thought "Try a FAQ?"? When is a FAQ demanded? Do I have to be popular? Is this egotistical?

Maybe this will provide a good connection.

IMO, I'm glad that there is a person or two reading what I uploaded. I am thankful, even though the old Howl of Gray Wolf was badly written and I think I'm far from being a good writer, since I'm confused a lot. I keep asking myself, "What constitutes good writing?"

I look back at some chapters and think, "that doesn't look right".

Also, if you get a ton of positive reactions, you'll have trouble handling the opposite. If I'm told to have awesome stories commonly, then that means I'll stay on that rhythm for a long time, thinking that it's correct. Recently, I'm schooled on grammar, particularly word choice and expositional redundancy.
