Weekend Updates

Thank you for being so patient with me.

Here are a few stories to keep you entertained during the weekend šŸ˜‰

    • All I Want –Ā chapter 7-8 have been revised and posted.
    • Forever and a Day – part 4 of AĀ Not So Ordinary DayĀ is available for your reading pleasure. Please noteĀ this isn’t the entire part 4 – the day is not quite over yet for our dear hero:D So expect more pages to beĀ addedĀ in the coming days. I know I’ve been neglecting writing the footnote for some time now. I should probably work on that soon, as I’ve weaved plenty of real-lifeĀ facts and materialsĀ into the story that might not seem so familiar to you.

 

Enjoy šŸ™‚

Apology and a Quiz :D

I know I mentioned I would try to post something before the week ends. Unfortunately, I’ve been quite tied up with many different things this week and that had left with me with not much time to devote on the blog. But I still plan to update All I Want soon, hopefully by tonight or tomorrow. As for Forever and a Day, you need to wait a little longer for that. I need more time to refine it, so please bear with me. This should be the last part of A Not So Ordinary Day. After this we’ll switch to Candy and what she’s up to, being stuck with Aunt Elroy, in Lakewood šŸ˜‰

In the mean time, let’s play a simple guessing game. Take a look a the picture below. Does it look familiar?

Well, I’m sure you know who they are šŸ˜‰

Can you tell from which scene is this?

IfĀ you claim yourself to be an avid fan of the manga, you should be able to answer this quickly šŸ˜€

Bonus points for those who could tell what’s so special about the image.

 

PS – I captured another error with Reverie. Apparently if you try to leave a comment on the restricted section, your comment will be blocked and displayed incorrectly. I’ll try to rectify this ASAP, but this may take a long time. As a temporary fix to the problem, I’ll repost your comments somewhere else and answer your questions there. I’m not sure yet whether I should do this on Reverie or here though.

Reverie accounts, updates, and other things

To those of you who live in the northern hemisphere, happy autumn!

Yep, summer has officially ended for us here. And the countdown to Christmas has started. It’s less than 3 months now, and then before we know it, the new year has rolled in. Can you believe it?!!

Moving on…

My apology for the lack of updates last week. I was traveling across the country for work, so things were a bit hectic. And the fact that I forgot to bring the correct charger for my laptop didn’t help either. Yeah I know… What a silly thing to do šŸ˜³

I’m in a much better set of mind to work on the blog and other leisure stuff now, having mostly recuperated from the trip and especially the jet-lag. Even thoughĀ I’ve not had a chance to work on a new post, or do any significant amount of writing, or replying to your comments (thank you for those), I was able to activate new reverie accounts for some of you.

So to those of you who had sent me a messageĀ requesting access, you should’veĀ received an email containing your login instruction a few days ago. You may also want to check your spam folder, as the email might have ended up there. If for whatever reason you can’t locate the email, or if you have problem with the loginĀ or accessing any of the post/article, please let me know. Once again, I truly appreciate your patience in this matter.

As for updates, there will be updates. I can’t promise as to when I can post them, but I’ll try my best to have something up for this week. So stay tuned for that.

In the mean time, stay cool. I know during this time the heat can be considerably moreĀ intenseĀ than during the actual summer months. So don’t put away your summer gear and sunblock yet. It’s Indian Summer, after all.

PS –Ā I’ll respond to your comments/messages shortly.

Weekend Updates

I hope your weekend is not busy because I come bearing lots of updates šŸ˜€

  • All I Want For ChristmasĀ – chapter 1 has been posted
  • All I Want – up to chapter 6 are now available, more chapters will be uploaded soon
  • Awakening – chapter 1 has been posted
  • Forever and a Day – partĀ 3 of AĀ Not So Ordinary Day has been published. Those of you who have been complaining about the lack of Albert’s POV in Awakening,Ā this chapter should hopefully alleviate your frustration. From beginning to end, AĀ Not So Ordinary DayĀ is really all about AlbertĀ šŸ˜€ If you’re wondering, Candy will appear in the next chapter.
  • I’ve also fixed all the broken links in the Articles section. You should be able to access them. Although you may need an account for a few of the restricted ones.
  • The pagination system has been modified. So hopefully it’s easier to navigate now. Let me know if you run into any problem.

That’s all for now. That should keep you tied up for a while, at least until the next update.

Enjoy šŸ™‚

Till next time,

Updates & 4th Anniversary

I don’t have much time for a long post right now as I need to pack for a short getaway trip with the family.

But I know you’ve been looking forward to this Ā šŸ˜€

So here you go, a few updates for you to enjoy over the long weekend:

Forever and a Day has been updated. (I know the pagination style is rather ancient. Please bear with me as I’ll work to improve that)

-More revised chapters of All I Want have been posted.

I hopeĀ those could tide you over for a while.

In the mean time, wish you all a wonderful weekend full of fun and laughter with your dear ones!

CC Fanfic tidbits and Updates

I’m happy to say that the writing of Forever and a Day is progressing rather nicely. An update should be coming in the not too distant future.

I do hope you’re aware that the rating is at least a solid R for this series, and it’ll reach M at some point. No, that’s not a joke. Candy and Albert are not exactly kids anymore. So you can expect them doing grown-up stuff šŸ˜‰

Also, as I mentioned before, the series will be updated in a sporadic fashion, which means update can happen in small fractions or fragments. However, what I didn’t inform you is that I may not always post an update alert when there is an update/revision. Hence you may want to keep that in mind, in case you’re wondering why it feels like there’s something different the second time or nth time you read it.

Anyway, are you curious about the song Albert originally planned to play in the wedding in Forever and a Day?

Candy Candy Manga Rambling Part VII: A Long Period of Courtship?

If you read my letter 2 rambling, you know that I think Albert is courting Candy through their correspondence. How long do you think their courtship lasts? Going back to the final scene of the manga, we see Albert presenting … Continue reading

Meiji Hiiro Kitan Link Fixed

It has been brought to my attention that there is an error with my last post. It turns out, the link to the source article was broken.

Well, I fixed that. So now you should be able to access the article. Sorry about that. I’ll make sure to verify all the links works before I publish a post.

If you would like to access the full article, you can directly goĀ here.

PS – yes, there will be more updates šŸ˜‰

Reverie Update and Status

As promised,Ā here’s the lowdown:

There was a bit of a scare earlier that had sent me into a panic attack when the entire site seemed to have vanished into oblivion, swallowed by the blackhole.

Thank goodness all is well now.

But at the moment, the site is still offline.

ChangesĀ are coming, and these changesĀ will directly impact those of you who are still waiting for your account to be activated and those who are interested to register, but not so much those with active accounts.

So anyone without active account who still wants to obtain access should continue reading this.

First, I want to address those of you who have registered at Reverie since early March. You’re probably wonderingĀ whether you will ever be granted an access. The answer is yes, eventually. It’sĀ not going to be right away, and the process won’t be as simple as it was before. There are extra steps to follow.

What happened?

It turns out there’s a possible breachĀ in the registration system that must be patched up at once. Because of this I have to implement additional precautionary measures to all pending accounts. Please note this means there will be extra steps you need to do in order for your account to be activated, and you must do it correctly as detailed in the notification email. Otherwise you’ll risk to have your account deactivated and purged, and yourĀ IP address might be blocked.

In addition, to prevent any future problem, I decided to disable the automatic registration system.

Eh?!!

Does this mean you can’t register at Reverie anymore?

That is correct. BUT there’s aĀ way if you still want to gain access to Reverie’s restricted sites, and the procedures are clearly outlined in the registration page.

Basically, you need to sendĀ me a private message. The message should contain a brief statement about the request for access, along with your name, email address, and your country of current residence. Providing me with more information than the required ones listed, such as the reason why you would like to get access, is not necessary, but it may facilitate the approval process. Conversely, providing me with inadequate or wrong information may result in your IP address being blocked, and a request made usingĀ an anonymous email provider will be denied.

And please, I beg you, do NOT create a duplicate/secondary account should you run into any problem. Instead send me a message with a detailed description of your problem. I might be forced to ban you if I discover you have multiple accounts.

I hate to impose such strict requirements, but considering the harms this potential breach might cause, that itĀ could be used as a backdoor for infiltrating the main server with malwares and viruses, I don’t want to take anything for granted. I hope you understand.

The good news is that I’m almost done with all the works. So expect the site to be back soon, maybe with an update or two šŸ˜€
