[Advent Project] Advent: Sacred Ground

My (possibly) final version of Advent. This is the first episode out of three. It's expected to have 19 in-story days.
This will update whenever I get to it. LAST UPDATE: 9/28/11

Now, without further ado, click the cut link to begin reading.

Sacred Ground - AwakeningCollapse )
Please give me any feedback you have for me, as I'm improving myself as a writer.
Yep. I'm making a Madoka fan OST. So speak up! Which tracks should go there? I'll add your username and song onto the list.

LAST UPDATE: 9/12/11

Quick rule! - The songs must NOT be from the Madoka OST, as that's kinda cheating.

Disk + Track ListingCollapse )

Anyone willing to contribute to this fan OST will be mentioned and have their username next to the song that they suggested. Anything that doesn't have a username next to it was added by me. If you think that a song doesn't fit for the OST, PLEASE LET ME KNOW. I will review the song and see if it's worthy of staying up.

Farewell? Maybe...

As you can clearly notice, I have been posting a lot less here. Plus, I've decided to suspend this little journal's activities until I can get my feet back into the ground. Why have I not been posting, you may ask? The reasons are relatively simple:

1. School comes first: While graduation may be less than a month away, I still can't really relax just yet. I'm either way too busy with work, which is typical.

2. Lack of Motivation: This is probably the biggest issue. Does that interfere with Advent? Absolutely. But a lack of motivation in general is really starting to get to my posting abilities.

3. College Prep is a Bitch: This is my last year of high school, and this summer, I'm going to have to both pack up and get ready for my eventual venture into life as a college student.

That's basically it. Will I ever post here again? Most likely, once I actually get my feet on the ground.

[Short Story] Train

The grinding of metal on metal. The large groups of people outside. The smell of coffee in the large room nearby. Waiting... Waiting... For what? A train. A train filled with people sleeping. People waiting to meet with their loved ones. People doing their jobs.

It was calming, relaxing, and sometimes exciting.

Standing on the station in the cold is a lone soul. He's been waiting for his other half for over four years. He recieved word that his loved one will be at the station at midnight, the next time the train will stop at the station. He waited for days and days in the frigid cold...

Midnight. The moment he's been waiting for...

He stands still as the train gradually grinds to a halt. The doors open, and people come walking out. He shifts his eyes, desperately searching for his loved one. People come surround him as they rush to their train, waiting to take them to their destination. As the crowds of people dwindle, the man's desperation increases. He looks panicked as he frantically searches for those familiar strands of brown hair, blue eyes, and a gentle smile.

The people dissipate and vanish onto the train, and it leaves... She never appeared...

Speechless, he falls onto his knees, placed his hands on his face, and began to weep. The love of his life, after all this time... Failed to appear. His overwhelming sadness was simply unbearable. After an hour of weeping and crying out, he got up and decided to go home.

When he opened the front doors of the train station, a voice called out to him.

"I've been waiting so long to see you again."

He turned to look at the face of the voice, and was astounded at what he saw. Long, brown hair with some covering her left eye, deep blue eyes, and a smile that will even calm a raging demon. It was her, the one he's been waiting so long to see again. He smiled and tears formed in his eyes, happy to see the love of his life again.

In her hands, she was holding a pair of train tickets. The time was set at 04:00, the time the next train arrives at the station. He took her inside and sat down at the bench nearest to the train. When the time struck 4, a silver train arrived at the station. The rush of people resumed normally. When the rush was at it's lightest, the young couple boarded the train to destinations unknown, living out the rest of their lives in peaceful bliss, together forever.

Uh... Hi?

Yeah, I know I haven't been on here much, and some of you (translated: none of you) are asking, "Where's the new chapter of Advent?"

The answer: Lack of time to write. I've been really busy with school lately and every time I DO have time to write, I usually forget. I kinda hate myself for forgetting a lot of things that I need to do...

But yeah, I'll try to write here more often...
NOTE: This is too long to post to Twitter or Tumblr, and I need an excuse besides Advent to use LJ more. Also, this is not a review by any means, but it does state my opinion on the CoD series as a whole.

*Sighs* Where do I even fucking begin with this...? If you're expecting praise, then you better get lost. I am NOT a Call of Duty fanboy and I never was. I may have played Modern Warfare 2 and enjoyed it to an extent, but after seeing the same thing in Black Ops, (Which I never played), I was expecting the same damn thing in Modern Warfare 3. And would you look at that: I was right.

What is this 'same thing', you may ask? Multiplayer. If you don't know what CoD multiplayer is, you're lucky, but not for long as I'm going to fill you in.

Read more... If you can handle my ranting.Collapse )

Anyway, yeah. I'm done~ *Puts up flameshield*

Bleh

I need to post here more. And I still see that the LJ posting system is still the same, crappy, new self. Oh well, at least they fixed it.

Kinda feel bleh lately. Dunno.

Anyway, Advent's progress has been grinded to a halt due to some family issues. But the next chapter will be up within the rest of the month. I've also decided to rewrite the first 12 chapters and make them longer. I want to describe Tomoki's surroundings and convey his emotions throughout the story, as it seems to make him look like a potential jackass and that's the reason why I want to rewrite.

Pizza's in the oven~
Who is the most important man in your life?
That has to be my grandfather. He's the closest thing I have to a father, seeing that my biological father left my mother for reasons mother won't tell me...

She won't let me see him because of an argument... It's made worse that he's dying of prostate cancer...

Writer's Block: Internet addictions

Besides LJ, what websites are you always surfing?
I think it's a pretty obvious answer. It's Twitter.

Wheeeee~

Haven't done a meme here for a very long time and I'm bored, so here you go~.

Comment to this post asking for a list, and I will give you five things I associate with you. They might make sense or they might be totally random. Then post that list, with your commentary, to your LJ. Other people can get lists from you, and the meme merrily perpetuates itself.

Given Serene, Madoka Magica, iM@S, Xbox, and Mami TomoeCollapse )
