I hate to have to do this to everyone, but because I was flamed on the last chapter and have been having trouble with what I want to do, I'm laying down the law.
I will continue the story as planned to the best of my ability.
I will kill off characters as need be for the story line to continue as I have it planned out.
I will do whatever I need to to bring this story to it's final conclusion.

I will promptly kill off every character whether I planned to or not, take the Japanese kids back to Japan and end the story in two chapters.

I will not back down from this stance.

Reads and reviews have been dropping steadily on this story anyway as people are losing interest. I'm doing my best to write for myself, but it's hard when I've had so many wonderful folks following for so long and then abandoning me when things take a turn they don't like.

That said, I'm going to attempt to update today. We'll see where this story goes from there.

A humble request
Could you make and/or upload copies of your saga as mobi files?
Mar. 15th, 2011 12:20 am (UTC)
Re: A humble request
I'd be happy to, if I knew what they were or how to do it. *grins8

Re: A humble request
This should help you.

Re: A humble request
okay, I'll see what's going on. :)
Mar. 15th, 2011 12:23 am (UTC)
Please don't!!
Oh dear... i hope i didn't come across as a flamer when i left a comment after reading the last chapter. i respect your writing, and love your story. i think i was more in shock and truly sad to see the death of so many who we have come to love. i would never leave hateful words, and i am sorry to hear people have said things. please, please, please don't start killing a lot of others off just because others are saying things. while i hope that my heart can take it, we understand it is your story and you need to write it your way. could you, maybe just, please, give a little warning for those of us who are faint of heart?
Mar. 15th, 2011 02:04 am (UTC)
Re: Please don't!!
Yours i knew was shock. *Grins* I can tell the difference between shock and flames. I got an email that was really nasty. I think this is probably the warning, although I don't have plans to set up any other major surprises. I still haven't decided how many have died in Miami, but hopefully won't leave that hanging too much longer.
Mar. 15th, 2011 12:25 am (UTC)
Luv your dragon stories. Please dont stop because of stupid people. There are alot of people who do like them. Sometimes they are hard to read when someone dies but that just means its great. You write it so people get so attached to all your dragons and mates.
Mar. 15th, 2011 02:05 am (UTC)
Re: Dragons
Aw, thank you. *grins*
Mar. 15th, 2011 01:45 am (UTC)
Um, despite the fact that I have a feeling I would be in favor of the people who don't like seeing others killed (I hate seeing characters killed, its why I've reverted to 'reality' tv, no one gets killed. ). The only thing I would like to say is that if a flame makes you kill all the characters I would think that would be re-warding the flamer and harming the people that have supported you. If people have gotten upset over one of your characters being killed, it means that your writing made the character real to them and the killing made them sad and hurt.
Mar. 15th, 2011 01:46 am (UTC)
Oh, I'd better go check the stories out and see what you've updated.
Mar. 15th, 2011 02:07 am (UTC)
Just a new chapter on TDC. I managed to lose my notebook with High Stakes and Without Trace chapters in it. *sighs* When this bug is gone I'll start digging.
Mar. 15th, 2011 09:31 am (UTC)
people can be fools
hey pal,

drop me a note, will ya?....i've emailed several times in the past and NO reply....do i have the email addy or something?

as for the killing: i knew, there'd be "some" due to the hunters and such.....just sad to see NY/DC community lose 2 pairs.

Mar. 15th, 2011 02:07 am (UTC)
Trust me, kiddo, I didn't want to do it any more than my readers probably wanted me to do it. Unless I have a few anti-New York readers, anyway. Who knows.
True, but at the same time, I can make it work out either way. It'll just be a big bang or the planned story. I don't know if it would be a reward or not.
Mar. 15th, 2011 02:22 am (UTC)
Please Don't Stop
Please don't stop writing!! I have been addicted to this story since I first discovered it a year ago. I check every week for an update because I can't wait to see where you've gone and what is happening. I would hate for it to stop because of some silly people.

Please keep an addict going.....

May your pen never falter and ink never run out.
Mar. 15th, 2011 02:40 am (UTC)
Re: Please Don't Stop
I'm sorry I don't update every week anymore, kiddo. *Grins* But I'll always have update notices on here when I do. Work just takes too much out of me to write that much, not to mention my original works these days.
I'll do my best. :)
Mar. 15th, 2011 04:45 pm (UTC)
You shouldn't stop, though. Even though I know nothing of these CSI (or is it CIS or what was it again?) characters, I really like the story. I haven't gotten til the part where you bring in all the boys I know, but I'm slowly catchong up. Anyway, I think I probably said so before, but one should write for ones own sake, not for other peoples. Don't care about what people say. You shouldn't need to kill off those you haven't planned to kill off. Just do as you planned from the beginning and take the good comments as what they are, take the constructive critisism (which I probably can't spell) and ignor any flames if you end up recieving more. Don't let people get to you for something you should be doing for your sake. Those people aren't important, you know.

Here, have a Niou
Mar. 16th, 2011 05:14 am (UTC)
Yay, Niou!!
I know, you're right and I've calmed down a little since I posted this. I guess it's more pain than actual anger, if that makes sense.
Mar. 26th, 2011 10:06 am (UTC)
I'll color him later~ Maybe soon, since I'm in a sorta 'coloring-old-scetches-since-I-can't-draw new ones' spree/slump/whatever one should call it. I still want to draw that Fuji/vampire!Niou-picture I have in my head, it just won't come out good on paper.
It makes sense, so that's alright.
Mar. 28th, 2011 04:59 am (UTC)
I know where you're coming from. I'm not liking anything I'm writing at the moment, so I'm working with older pieces.
Let me guess, from pairpuri? I love that scene. vamp!Niou is hot.
Okay, glad it made sense. :)
Apr. 1st, 2011 06:13 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I'm in a slump with stories as well. I just can't feel any productive. Except taking photos. I think I'll try to post some from the shoot we had the other day.
Yup. Pair Puri. *grins* And from a contest at catahya (swedish fantasy forum) which I saw the day before the deadline. The theeme was bloodlust or something of the likes.
Apr. 2nd, 2011 06:05 am (UTC)
I'm going to try and start a new novella here in a day or so and see what happens. I blame the weather. But part of writing is reading, so I never feel too guilty.
*grins* My favorite scene in that whole cartoon drama. My favorite overall is Cinderella at Rikkai. That would be a fun contest to do. :)
Mar. 16th, 2011 06:25 am (UTC)
Please keep writing! I may wonder if your plotbunnies have rabies, but that doesn't mean I don't want to read your stories! Maybe they don't have rabies, maybe they just need antidepressants and sunshine...
Mar. 16th, 2011 06:41 am (UTC)
rotflol, are you visiting Idaho by any chance? We have two weeks of rain forecast for us and it started today. Sunshine would be good. *grins*
I still haven't checked them. They might. How do you tell if plot bunnies have rabies anyway?
Mar. 16th, 2011 04:57 pm (UTC)
I have to admit I too was wandering about the plot bunnies you have. Lordy, it was such a shock and knocked me for six, but at least they were together in death, as in life.

Mind you, I may have to up the dose of my meds for a short while whilst waiting for Jethro et all to wreak revenge!

I'll retire now, and count fairies for a while - till the next dragon lands.

Keep writing, pet. I, as you know, love this saga. Let the eejits just whimper away. I bet you have more supporters than detractors.

Love A
Mar. 16th, 2011 08:50 pm (UTC)
And they all look so sweet and innocent too. huh, I'll have to check them one of these days. *Grins*
That's what I'm finding. It's really neat to find so many people are still behind this story. I was starting to lose hope.
Mar. 18th, 2011 06:46 pm (UTC)
I've been enjoying your Dragon Series since I found it, but I'm really bad about leaving review. When I saw that you had updated the WAR series, I eagerly went to read the chapters. I was saddened to see that you had killed off part of the reason that I like reading the stories. Your decision, but I really liked the Mac/Danny pairing. I was confused when you added Prince of Tennis since I don't follow that fandom, but I muddled through. I'll be sorry to see you end this because of a flamer.
Mar. 20th, 2011 06:58 am (UTC)
Thanks so much. I'm glad you stuck around through the Japanese additions, as I know some folks gave up when I did that.
The good news is that there have been no new flames, so the story will continue as planned for now. :)
Mar. 19th, 2011 07:08 pm (UTC)
Just letting you know that I recently stumbled across this epic fic and have just finished reading the latest chapter. This is a really interesting 'verse you've created... and somehow the crazy mass crossover works. I'm looking forward to the next installment whenever you get to it. Got me on pins and needles!
Mar. 20th, 2011 06:59 am (UTC)
Welcome to the madness. *Grins* I'm glad you've been enjoying it.
The next update will be after I finish my fics for the Japan fic auction on WWOMB. I've had to put everything on hold for that.
Mar. 20th, 2011 02:24 pm (UTC)
Prince of Tennis and Fuma no Kojiro

I was also a bit confused with the Japanese additions. The result....I am now an avid fan, have bought the DVDs and am now searching for new stuff. The links you put in helped me catch up and I can understand why you added them (definitely lovely eye candy, yum). It's reading Fanfic that has put me onto the most amazing shows and stories I didn't know existed. Can't wait for the next exciting episode (when you get to it). Glad to see you aren't as down about the flamers as you were and you had such a great response.

Mar. 22nd, 2011 01:48 am (UTC)
Re: Prince of Tennis and Fuma no Kojiro
Yay, so glad you gave them a shot. If you let me know what you have, I might be able to give you some links for PoT stuff. There's just so much of it out there that it's a little crazy. And I have a download link for subbed Tokyo Ghost Trip for the third group of new characters that are in there.

Thanks. :)
Mar. 25th, 2011 06:15 am (UTC)
Re: Prince of Tennis and Fuma no Kojiro
I have Fuma No Kojiro, Tokyo Ghost Trip on DVD, and I found the Prince of Tennis anime online. If you are adding new characters I will have to go back and review Ghost Trip (Oh Dear the strain, the pain, I will have to force myself.......not {hee hee}).

In my wandering I discovered "Pet Shop of Horrors" and "Vampire Knights" if you can suggest any more shows for viewing I would be humbly grateful.


Mar. 25th, 2011 06:50 am (UTC)
Re: Prince of Tennis and Fuma no Kojiro
I know, so much pain in rewatching those shows. *grins* Love 'em.
So, you now have to watch the Prince of Tennis musicals, also known as myus. They follow the manga a little more closely than the anime does in some cases, but the anime is awesomeness anyway. I have links for all the musicals for download.
The second one is my favorite for downloading and has almost all of them. Between the two, you should be able to get all the current musicals that are out there. And I say current because they're re-staging them with new actors.

Vampire Knight and Vampire Knight Guilty are definitely worth watching. Black Butler is awesome and has both anime and musicals. I like Bleach and Naruto, but Naruto is loud and annoying and takes some getting used to, but the story line is awesome.

For jdramas and musicals - I love the musicals - I use this page mostly.

I seriously could list like a hundred of things to try out. Oh, yeah, this is a must. It is friend-locked, but the community is really easy to join, if you haven't already.
It's the Prince of Tennis voice actors singing their character songs and is so cute. Eiji's voice actor made me melt.

And I have to ask, you have all 178 main episodes plus the OVAs for the PoT anime? There's also what are called PairPuris that are really cute, but kinda hard to find. Let me know and I can help out there.

I think that's enough for now. Like I said, I can just go and go and go. *Grins* Especially with PoT.
Mar. 28th, 2011 12:07 pm (UTC)
Re: Prince of Tennis and Fuma no Kojiro

Thanks heaps!! I know what I will be watching for the next month. Yes I do have the main episodes of POT. I am not sure about the OVAs. I go onto a website called "Watch anime online" http://www.animefreak.tv/ It gives me a great opportunity to have look at the anime before buying it on DVD. Will have to check out Black Butler. I haven't heard of that one. I'll also have to look up PairPuris. I haven't heard that term before. It's amazing what you can learn about on the internet *Big Grin*

Mar. 28th, 2011 10:07 pm (UTC)
Re: Prince of Tennis and Fuma no Kojiro
There's a complete list of the anime plus the OVAs. Anything you're missing I'll be happy to post up, including what PairPuris I have. I'm also going to be putting up the Fuuma musical and it's backstages for download on my journal today. *grins* Well worth watching.
Black Butler is totally worth it. So awesome.

About Dragons
Hello there

I hope I am doing this correctly, because I have never actually used whatever I am on now. I just wanted to say that I am a great fan of your Dragon stories, and while I was sad to read that the people of New York died in your story that did not change my opinion in the least, that you do great writing. I love your stories and hope you continue writing them. I assumed you had an idea in your head that you are following, so, I am eagerly awaiting more.
All the best

Mar. 22nd, 2011 01:49 am (UTC)
Re: About Dragons
Hey, looks good to me. Livejournal is fairly user friendly most of the time. And I say that only because I'm still figuring out some parts after several years.
Thanks so much, I'm glad you're going to be hanging around for the rest of this story.
Mar. 23rd, 2011 10:54 am (UTC)
About Dragons
I really enjoyed your Dragon story and have reread it many times. Thanks for the stories over the years. The last one WAR is a bit confusing to me as I never watched Prince of Tennis etc. and I am not really a fan of Character Deaths, sniffy killed off all my fave characters almost, but hey it is your story and there are sure people who like CDs. I am sure I will reread again the other parts . I´ll just stop by war, as it makes me too sad.
Hey, that's not a flame BTW just me, as CDs make me really too sad and I read thousands and over thousands of Fanfic in many fandoms since January 1995. I just stay clear from CDs as when I am sad I can't draw or paint. Now then where would I be? Totally lost.
Your writing is great and I enjoyed it.

Re: About Dragons
Aw, thanks so much. I hate to lose you as a reader, but totally understand where you're coming from. I've stopped stories in the middle because they hit on something I don't like and, as much as I wanted to see how it ended, I just couldn't.
I will post up on here when I get to the epilogue so you can see how it ends, if you want, without having to read all the in-between. :)

New Chapter

Loved the new chapter. Can't wait for the next one...am looking forward to seeing Gibbs in sniper mode and find out what is happening in Miami.

On another note I watched Black Butler liked you suggested and loved it! Watched the anime over a weekend and ended up with square eyes. I have now discovered Black cat. Love this new world I have discovered.

Catch you later

Re: New Chapter
I'm so glad. :) It's kinda a filler and I fully admit it. But I'm building up to the big scenes again. I might find time to write again today. I'm not sure. :)

Isn't Black Butler amazing? I haven't watched/read black cat but am familiar with the name.
This is just the best world to be in. :)
May. 12th, 2011 10:45 am (UTC)
Re: New Chapter
Can't wait
I am considering buying the Black Butler on DVD, loved the anime and am devouring the manga. Decided to go all out and have ordered all the Manga volumes for Black Cat. Found a website that sold them for only $7.00 each. Yay. I have already bought the first 5 here in Australia. Have not started reading as I want to be able to read them all in one go. Will have to pull up the draw bridge and release the crocodiles and arm the electric fence so that I won't be disturbed.

Hope to hear from you soon.

May. 14th, 2011 06:00 am (UTC)
Re: New Chapter
i actually have that one downloaded because i didn't want the dubbed version. :) I wish they would release the english manga for it a little faster. my mac doesn't always like to let me read scanlations, so i'm kinda stuck. *Grins*
That's awesome on the website. I'm lucky in that i have a manga store no more than an hour and a half away, so day trips to shop aren't that hard. and there's a wonderful japanese import store in seattle, which is six hours away.
enjoy black cat. :)

Not a flame
I kinda want to hate you. But you're right this is your world and I will read it till the end because you made me love it. You are an amazing writer. You have created a universe that I have come to love and I hope that this universe will become like the romanology verse and others will make there own versions because there is just so many places you can go with this. Thank you
Jul. 30th, 2011 06:02 am (UTC)
Re: Not a flame
thanks so much for sticking with me :) especially with how slow and random i've become on updates for this series.

actually, there are others who write their own dragon stories. if you use my TDC tag, i think i still have links up to their works as well.
