Birthdays, Trucks, and Football
Manga Rin and Butterfly

Well, my birthday has been fairly nice. I had to work, which kind of sucked, but it wasn't too bad. The truck wasn't that big, for a change, which was nice. If only they could all be that way!

I've seen all the LJ birthday wishes, and thanks. My only complaint? What gives? Everyone else got the hot naked/half naked guys, but I didn't! That makes me sad. I like naked/half naked guys, too!

Now, I'm watching the NFL season kick off game, and it's nice to have football back. Tomorrow, I'll be going to see the Minnesota Twins, for only my second live MLB game ever. It should be a lot of fun.

I've been working on the chapter, and I'm a little over ten pages on it now. There's still quite a bit left to write, so we'll see when I can get it done. I'm glad you all have patience!

Anyways, that's pretty much all that's going on.

Until next time,

Far Away Eyes

DDX ... I seriously need to turn my birthday alerts back on.


Nothing says happy belated like half nekkid Sess! XD Hope you had a good 'un! =D

Poor Sess. Something tells me Rin made him put his hair up that way. At least he's not Jaken!

I think it's been a while since I've done half naked guys for a birthday post - probably since I was doing them from work and I make it a public post so everyone knows. Anyway, happy birthday again! I'm glad you at least had a smaller truck today. It's always better when work isn't so bad.

Here's a little something for you:

There, that's much better. Thanks for the hot guy parade.

And I forgot to say that I'm really looking forward to your next chapter!! Now if I could just get in the mood to write myself...

At least someone will be looking forward to it. Considering the review I got today saying "portions are dull," makes me wonder! *winks*

I just have to sit down and do some writing before bed. Sigh.

It's probably one of those that wants all action and sex, and nothing inbetween - probaby doesn't have the intelligence to follow the actual story. I wouldn't put much thought into it. I'm fairly certain that I'm not the only one who looks forward to your updates.

And I love it when someone leaves a review like "this is obviously filler" or something along those lines. Sometimes it's something important to the story - and sometimes it isn't. However, if I want to write filler in my own story, aren't I allowed to? Chances are it had some relevance, and someone enjoyed it.

so please write! I needs something decent to read!

They probably prefer plot driven over character driven. In character driven, action is brought upon by characters influencing the story, and often, people tend to care more about them. In plot driven, it's supposed to be pushed along by forces on the characters and the growth in them happens but at a lesser degree.

I just find character driven to be better. And, I don't necessarily believe in filler, at least not in writing as much. Sometimes it's blatantly obvious, but for the most part, a part in the story is there for a reason. It might not be apparent in that moment, but it'll reveal itself at a later date, and if one is reading carefully, they'll know.

I'm not really bothered by the "dull" comment. I figure they don't like the scenes between Sess/Rin or Inu/Kag in their down times. They did mention "Finally getting to Miroku and Sango," who I've been developing slowly for a reason. Either way, it's one of those reviews that demands the story change somehow, someway, rather than saying exactly why or how with any constructive criticism.

Sesshomaru wanted to cuddle for far longer than I expected in my current chapter. They're just gonna have to deal, I guess.

Oh my. They're very cute.
