RECENT UPDATE(S): August 24, 2013

Greetings everyone!

August is almost over. This is just a little update on what to expect. First, I'd like to say thank you to those who are reading my works. I've noticed a spike of views this month, and I am glad.

As for what's next, I have Howl of the Gray Wolf (Monster Rancher) and Penitent Feathers (Saint Seiya FF) drafts to work on. To be honest, after finishing the previous chapters two weeks ago, I became lazy. I did a little work on HoGW draft. Since I didn't thoroughly think over what's supposed to happen, I just want to be careful with some details. When in doubt, I can just sit down and write in my notebook.

Also, one day, or most likely one month, inspiration fics again! This time, I am not inspired by the passion of fans, but rather from my distaste of seeing what's accepted in my favorite fandoms.

Some of the writing content that I see, which are widely recognized, and encouraged for continuance (especially if seen as grammatically correct, or supposedly is), makes me upset. And no, I wasn't reading smut lately (even though that can bother me). You can call me self-important or condescending. Sometimes it's saddening when a reader wants to find a fan story that shares his/her immense interest, and it turns out that the story is garbled due to "free expression" and "fan love".

I may do three fanfics, and I'm still deciding over the fandoms. You will not know them until I upload them. Also, one chapter only for each story.

See you.

...MGW...

Stuff on notable baddie monsters and the significance of the crest. Also, Hopper spoiler.

About Medallion: There are five medallion: One belonging to each of the Dragon Four, and one belonging to the monster baddies that serve the four dragons. It depends on who they serve and each has a different color. Jesvah's medal has a red dragon, diabolos has white, techno has tan, ragnorok has black.

The Dragons have a "Moo Medallion" or a "Magnus Medallion", reflecting their strength and shows that they were selected.

The medallions control a monster and its power strengthens due to nigrum. Based on 108 Sins. A former champion, Jesvah's seals suits defilements such as pride/vanity, high-handedness, arrogance (egoism), ostentatiousness.

Terrorist dragon Ragnoroks fits violence, eagerness, discord, ambition, greed, addiction, hurt.

Evil demon dragon Diabolos fits rage/wrath, aggression, derision.

Techno, being a machine, is a difficult one. So far, I can only think of faithlessness and indifference. Can control machines and non-animal monsters well.

"The White Crest" chapter is about Jaggernaut and Sneak Hopper trying to use White Crests to take Basilisk and Gray Wolf.

About Baddie Monsters: There are "captain monsters" or "notable monsters" such as Robeneal, Zilla, and Liquel. They wear the "dragon medallions". So who do they work for?

Robeneal works for Ragnorok (black). He has a dry character, but ambitious. Also worried about himself.

Jaggernaut & Sneak Hopper work for Diabolos. The same has the first version of HoGW.

Prometheus belongs to Techno Dragon.

Liquel and Shippu belong to Jesvah. Siccari, however, belongs to Ragnoroks. Mew-Cakes might end up with Techno. Still thinking whether to make her bad or not. Shippu's just heart makes me conceited about justice.

Hopper: Hopper might've learned Fire Upper through training, or so I could say easily, [ but he may have dragon blood in him? Breeders can mix monsters to form another; in MR2, they had a % chance. This would mean that Hopper would have to be a mixed monster that died long ago and revived in the wild. ]

Human Spoilers:
[ What I had in mind so far:
- Hunter being controlled by Jesvah.


- Volzoi unleashes Iron Bird Air Force to help
]

Aiolossagitario

Sagittarius Aiolos from Saint Seiya: Episode G.

Armor = protection. The original derivation of the word is from "armo", Latin, meaning to "equip with weapons". Aren't strong women quite sexy?

RAMBLE TIME to unravel thoughts.

Spoilers abroad. Check the links, please?

For the Saint Seiya fanfiction that I plan to do, I want to make a female Gold Saint. This wasn't done in either SS series until Saint Seiya Omega with Gemini Paradox and Scorpio.

What I'm looking for in this FF is to represent the spirit of Saint Seiya, and I'm making it for those who enjoy Saint Seiya. Rather, they inspired me to make it, especially the fans in Europe (Spain) and Latin America.

In the story, the female will wear the standard Sagittarius cloth. No renovations, no changes, no "femininity". My reasons are from SS canon and historical facts; the only thing I'm going against is the "wearing of the mask" rule, which was done in Saint Seiya Omega.

What finalized my decision was really the cloths themselves. Before worn, they look like statues representing the constellation, mostly animals. In the above image is the Sagittarius cloth, composed of different pieces that I can fit on a Saint's body. The cloths remain conventional. Here is the pieces to the Sagii cloth. It may look male due to possibly representing Chiron the centuar.

Is the Taurus Cloth QUITE masculine looking?

This is a conventional breastplate, and are worn to protect even the navel. The Gold Cloths are full armors, protecting virtually every area. Apparently "female exclusive" armor, or a protruding/bulging (literally) breast plate, compromises a vital bone weakness in the chest. In addition to damage from the "attacking" material, there is also the kinetic force. Breasts can bind behind the armor.

Full armor of 16th century armor with bulged (or globe-like) breastplate

While Saints' cloths are known to heal and evolve, Gemini Paradox and Scorpio from OMEGA donned gold cloths that transformed to become "compatible" with their bodies (breast-wise). In LOST CANVAS, Yuzuriha wears the crane cloth (link has specifics). The crane cloth apparently has its own mask.

It doesn't seem to hinted that the fate of the stars follow a gender-specific selection. I haven't found any information. Like, is Pegasus always chosen inside a boy? Is Dragon? How about Ophiuchus (Shaina) and Eagle/Aquila (marin and Yuna)? Andromeda Saint is male.

Many characters from Shun to Aphrodite, are quite androgynous in looks. The Saint Seiya series is no stranger to feminine looking males. In LOST CANVAS, Pisces Albafica stands out with his beauty. There is also Nasu Veronica, who I quite confused for a woman in the comic. He was quite gorgeous. There is also the specter Behemoth VIOLATE. Leo Regulas confused her for a man because of her torso armor. Voiced by Honda Takako, I thought Violate was a boy; there's also her name. Here is her surplice.

As for Shun, his cloth (armor) is based on the Constellation Andromeda; in Greek myth, Andromeda was a beautiful woman who was chained to rocks as a sacrifice to a sea monster. Aside from being pink, the Andromeda cloth has a feminine aspect when worn on Shun

Female in military and police forces where the same body armor around their torso. In paintings and statues from Japan, women such as Hojo Masako and Tomoe Gozen (statue figure amd painting), wore the same overlapping cuirass. In records, there have been various accounts of female samurai. A somewhat modern example of a female samurai is Nakano Takeko.

Here's Tomoe Gozen from video game YOSHITSUNE YUUDEN

In Western folklore there is Joan of Arc (Jeanne d'Arc) AND the supposed first female Pope. Painting of Joan.

Also inspiration for my choice is SACRED SAGA SS FANART! Please enjoy! The cape behind Aiolos is a nice touch up.

Would you like another example of woman wearing armor from video games?

My mafia story gained its official title, and my interest grows in it the more I research (as you can tell from the wikia uddates). I am just writing down ideas and this may not be completely official.

The Commission played a large role to the Sicilian mobsters back in early-mid 20th century, and I think I'm going to bring it into the fiction, disregarding the IRL difficulties of assembling the commission back together. It may support the use of strega, or how it gets around or how it's regulated. Also, the Camorra has a commission-like body.

OK. Let's start:

The Sicilian CMS may be considerably private, so much that no one thinks it exists. Maybe a Spirito strega user can relay a schedule on where a private meeting takes place. It may be just only one meeting that took place in the 90s because spirito strega is very rare; plus, the point of the story is to have one spirito user turn against the mafia.

Each member of the commission is an infamous strega. Not sure how many they'll be.

Baldovino Riina
Nicknamed the "Explosive Beast" because of his violent nature. He known for many assassinations involving explosions. Many fear him; has been hunting down pentito and law officials for prosecuting his family members under RICO.

Irene Stellaro
Replacing her husband is 40-something Irene; she is one of the mains of the story. Her strega produces lightning (or dynamic electricity), but I can't decide whether to make it a fire or wind type, nor can I figure out on how it evolved. She is called the Demon queen. She searches for the Spirito strega.

Dante Giardinello
Earth strega. He is the youngest (at least 19?), but reliable. Considered the little earthquake. Said to have a bright future. He is known for "bringing down the house" (literally) on Black hand camorra groups.

Fausto Dragna
Water strega. From Borgetto.

Manuel Messina
A major heroine trafficker.

Lorenzo Salvatore
From Uditore district. Known for his thief groups. His earth strega evolved into magnetism, and he is called "The Grand Thief". He wears iron rings at mystic tools to support his magnetic ability.

Marino Arenella
From Arenella. Bald man with thick mustache. He is actually calmer than most, likes to read, and smoke cocaine. Throughout the years, he has mellowed about using violence and illegal activities. Air strega.

Giulio Falcone
Behind everyone's backs, Giulio has been initiating anti-mafia activities within his family, and secrely supporting journalist. However, he's kept the strega use a secret.

Ignazio Ciaculli

Nico Bagarella
A supporter of Riina, he forms an infamous hit squad.

That's all for now. Ten should be good.
mastergraywolf: (Humph ^_^)
A ramble, expect grammar and spelling errors.

So I have a mafia story in mind, and I can't get the idea of sorcery out of my mind. I might as well stick with it.

As for a title, and idea for the crime war, a drug-like greed extends to obtaining magic.

Seishin entry. These might not be official, but something I thought up for backgrounds.

Kirigakure Saizo:
Saizo is the son of Sokiri, a samurai leader under the Azai family (daimyo may be Sukemasa, then Hisamasa in1 1542) in the Kohaku region. Due to their conflicts against the Sasaki and Rokkaku family, the Azai had to ally with the Asakura and there were various raids against Rokkaku but they often lose.

Sokiri perishes and vassals of Saizo fled from Kohaku region to Nabari where Tanba took Saizo in. After some threats, Tanba convinces the Azai-Kohaku men to join the Iga and study under him as a step towards power. Saizo becomes akin to a uchideshi.

Tozawa Hakuunsai (戸沢 白雲斎)
Born in 1520s.
An old man from Settsu Province, even the Koga master of Sarutobi Sasuke rivaled against Rokkaku at one time. He used to belong to the Miyoshi family, vassals to the Hosokawa, but assisted in capturing castles from the Hosokawa for independence. He asisted Matsunaga Hisahide during the 1540s - 1560s in a campaign for independence. At one point, he retired and gave succession to his eldest son, while he goes on a trip. It's still unknown when he learns Koga, unless Ninjutsu users related to the Takeda (or even Mochizuki) were a part of the Miyoshi. It is also possinle
mastergraywolf: (High Focus/Not Tolerating This)
A entry about Seishin. Just spilling my thoughts. It has the potential to be another Iga story. It kept cross my mind as tiny parts/ideas; now I can't remember what I wanted the purpose to be. For a long time, I was worried over the character Shoutarou, especially with his upbring and on why he was a cowardly character.

Uncle and nephew )

WHAT causes fear?
mastergraywolf: (Huh?)
For those who read SolAka:

Who would like to help me create a TV Tropes page for it?

Or maybe I should wait until I progress more in the story?
mastergraywolf: (Default)
Hello Sunday. I don't have much time but here's something from my notebooks, and will expand on it on another day (Also will be revealed on Wikia).

TWO SHORT STORIES

1.) [Title unknown]
Sub Cate: Mythology
Genre: Supernatural/Comedy, General, General/Comedy, or Supernatural/Romane, or Supernatural/Comedy. It may have to be General, lol.

Info: In Modern Europe, an ageless boy, the so-called True Paladin from Celtic days, is under the service of the Pope to battle against the plague of Balor's eye.

2.) [Title unknown]
Sub Cate: Historical
Genre: Drama, tragedy or general?

Info: Basically, a fictional event happening during the Civil War. It'll only be a single chapter.
mastergraywolf: (Huh?)
I like History.

So I thought of posting information on important political parties (mostly American) and the difference between them.

How are political views written and accepted in fiction?

===

I posted THIS in an old entry.

This is my focus for United We Soar:

In accordance to FictionRatings (or I'm attempting it), these are my thoughts on the ratings and genre:

- As a military fiction, "United We Soar" will be "Rated M" mainly for its "strong language" and "references to political, social and religious content" just to be on the safe side.

There is also the mention of 9-11 (what psychological impressions will the story have?). Politics do play a role in the story's center conflict. The Middle Eastern "religious" battles and terrorism are mentioned as well. Will America's reason for fighting seem justified to a reader? Aiden will question himself about that, also the use of nuclear power for weapons, what it means to be American (and patriotic). Also, religious views from Aiden and Claire; theroys of historical events from Aiden; stereotyping thoughts/jokes from Aiden, Steele and Ace. In other words, story may be controversial. I don't think the violence will seem that terrible, but that's still a long way. Sub-Category will be Action. The Genre(s) will be drama/sci-fi. (see below). UWS slightly takes place in the future. Also, The Main Squadron in the story are racially diverse.

=======
mastergraywolf: (Huh?)
Questions I'd like to ask and (when I have time) answer myself. Just something to think over:


Why do I like BACCANO?
Why do I like BASILISK?
Why do I like Y + M?
Why do I think will male a good ninja story?
How to make a compelling story line/plot?
What causes negative criticism?
Why am I slow in thinking up plot (or why do I find it difficult?)

Here we are at the weekend with nothing to contribute at FP or FF yet. FF's acting a little funny. It's like the window in my Account settings can't seem to expand.

The main subject of this entry is ninjutsu. I wrote in my notebook a few skill ideas for some of the stronger ninja (like the chuunin).

Highlight for spoilers since I haven't revealed them yet. Even worse, I'm not sure when. These are just loose brainstorm notes.

Here we go )

More later.

Update

mastergraywolf: (Huh?)
Just an update.

I'm still having trouble with the first chapter of United We Soar, and the new Seishin story. I am still also troubled by my writing style. When I get home, I'll consider returning to either story. I want to work on the start on the new HoGW chapter. I should of began a long time ago.

Time for fun science stuff.

About Strike Lancer: Cautions )

For the first chapter of UWS, this isn't important as Aiden will not begin flight until second chapter. I'm just psychologically hindered to write.

I need a sad or sick icon.

MGW's been sick since last week Thursday. I am just starting to feel better, but before that I was procrastinating. Can't remember what I was doing; anyways, I did try to prepare getting back into writing this week after fully recovering from being sick, so I jotted down ideas for Pokefighters on my notepad.

That should inspire me to get back into it.

ALSO!

Interest in reviving Seishin is growing more. Check my Wikia for more.
Since Seishin is inspired by Futaro Yamada's Ninpochou, the ninja characters will have unique paranormal techniques and can wield unique weapons.

The paranormal techs will somewhat be against my idea of avoiding magic-like elements, like blowing fire or being able to disappear, but it won't be too exaggerated. Read Basilisk or Yagryu Ninja Scrolls for examples.

Stories for Seishin will be short and split into eras.

[ Monday, Sept 27 ]
- Howl of Gray WOLF (Afternoon)

You know what today is? Today is HoGW day! That means I will resume working on the chapter. I was going to start RIGHT NOW but I want to get this letter out of the way first, so it may be around later afternoon or the evening when I start.

Before the day is over, I will post results on how far i've gotten in the single day. I'm going to dedicate at least THREE HOURS of time into HoGW.

Also, The Seishin Section for Wikia has been updated. I think the hiatus has gone for too long and I may have an idea on how to restart it.
mastergraywolf: (Default)
So I'll start writing/typing for Howl, Pokefighters and SolAka next week.
But, I did some updating on WIKIPEDIA (Character additions for example). It's fun for some reason.


Today, I'm going to tell you a bit about the Valspera family. Some stuff you may learn early on in the story, some you might not.
Highlight for spoilers )

Agenda

mastergraywolf: (Default)
Just notes to myself.
- I have a book ABOUT Science Fiction and I've been interested in it. I want to read it more
- Edit Pokefighters Article on my WIKI, now that the story has begun
- Work on next SolAka chapter as much as possible, also work on wiki article (mainly the characters).
- Outline for next Howl of Gray chapter

I think that's it.

Next week will be busy for me because of a job training program. Hoh boy, so early.

Speaking of Wiki, I added a rather useless article about ANOTHER story that came to mind. It may be loosely based on Proto-Indo-European myth? It's about a boy knight. Very simple story.
mastergraywolf: (Humph ^_^)
Alright, just something to put down here before I go nighty night.

HoGW & Pokefighters: I won't be here next weekend, so starting Monday I'm jumping back onto HoGW and I want to finish the chapter before Friday. I don't think I won't be doing much else through the week. I also might finish the Prologue for Pokefighters. But you do know what this means when I make a new series? Speed on updating will decrease.

Status used for SolAka Series: 1st version. Inspired by Super Robot Wars, I plan to make graphs indicating the parameters of the mech units in the SolAka series. This is what I wish to use:

運動性
Seems to be used for movement (Speed?) and evasion. I call it MO.

装甲
This is Armor. How much damage can a unit take?

格闘
Melee (In-Fighting): Offensive. Unit is good in physical attack and close-range combat, such as martial arts machines.

射撃
Shooting (Gunfighting): Offensive. Like above, like for a shooting weapon. When there's emphasis in this, it usually means theu nit has good firepower or/and good in range.

エネルギー
Energy: Also called EN. Resouce used for weapons, supplementary systens, etc. If they have a ton of energy, it usually means they need to run on a lot because they have a ton of weapons or kinds that consume a lot of energy.
mastergraywolf: (Default)
Sooner or later, I want to resume the Seishin series. In October, it will be two years since I've worked (or thought?) on it, and one year since I put it on hiatus. For something I have a passion to portray, a series on life-like ninja, I find Seishin's status to be sad. I plan this to be BIG.

I think I'll go look through Japan's history, particulaly the Muromachi era, through my shelf encyclopedia. I have a Britannica for my computer but it doesn't seem to be working.

Anyways, this is an entry about Seishin's formatting.

It turned out that the previous chapters of HoGW needed more work than I thought. I hope they are better now. I'm doing edits on chapter "Champion" now and will be done soon. Also, I figured out the layout for the next chapter, so that is good news. I hope, I hope, I can get it done by next week because this procrastination really needs to stop. And the last chapter, which is CHAMPION, was a little long.

Also, I thought of some fun stuff for SolAka in very later chapters.

...and stats?!
