hikago my kind of fic

i feel that i should explain what happened with the whole lotto fic thing for Hikaru no Go. see, what had happened was around the time i began posting Hoshi i started to receive hate mail -- and not because the probability of hikaru screwing sai was higher than akari either. people -- a lot of people -- were having issues with the angels of all things. their greivances included but are not limited to, that they exist, or they show up too much, or they're misnamed. i can't begin to tell how much hell i caught for giving raphael uriel's powers or calling michael 'the Judge'. as a result, i got so irritated with the story and its readers that i set it aside and said i'd write more when i felt better about the whole mess.

i guess i'd like to apologize for my taking so long to feel better. currently i'm re-writing the already posted chapters of Hoshi to see if i can stay true to my outline without using the angels at all. this should quell all objections and i can get back to enjoying my fic, and so can everybody else.

in other news, the site should be getting a major overhaul in a few weeks. hopefully it'll get better too.

This isn't hate mail, I promise...
I recently found your website and was so happy when I found a Hikaru no Go "Sai-comes-back" fic that actually looked like it was going somehwere. I was so happy, in fact, that I searched your website for an email, a review box, or something that I could use to contact you, when I found your livejournal. And what did I find as the first entry? You saying you were going to put Rules of the Game on hiatus! I was so upset that I just had to write you to tell you how I felt. What I wanted you to know was this: You can't be put off by a little bit of hate mail! There are always going to be people who think your writing is bad or your characters suck or your information is inaccurate or that homosexuality is wrong. But you know what? None of that matters. What matters is that you love what you do and that there are other people who love what you do. Despite the fact that so many people don't like what you've been writing, there are lots of people who love where the story is going and weren't offended by what you did to the angels. I mean, think about how many people refused to see Bruce Almighty because God was black! The movie still came out anyway though, right? The fact of the matter is that it's YOUR story and if you want your characters to be a certain way then to hell with everyone else. You don't have to rewrite your story just because you gave the angels some spunk. Yes, it would be a good idea to make sure you have all the correct information on the angels, but you don't have to cut them out entirely. There will still be people who will love your writing as much as I do, and I think that in itself would be enough for me to keep writing. What about you?

Re: This isn't hate mail, I promise...
Hey, I just wanted you to know that I was kinda upset at those people that wrote you those letters when I wrote that post. I just read it again and I was like O.O wow, I really bitched at her, didn't I? Sorry about that, I didn't realize how I sounded >.< It was suppised to be an inspirational comment...

So, if I may ask (sorry if I'm pissing you off by asking this but I said I'd hound you), can we expect another chapter of RotG soon?

Re: This isn't hate mail, I promise...
Shiiiiiiiit. I just keep apologizing, don't I? It's just that you don't see many guys writing fanfiction, at least not in the Hikaru no Go fandom. It's a nice change. :)

Yeah and, um, sorry for calling you a girl. *dies*

Wow, what a bunch of bastards. The original authors - of the angels, that is - didn't even agree on who did what and why, so I'm not sure what a bunch of internet peons have to offer that educated religious scholars didn't. :D Now that I've said that, I hope I didn't send a letter like that ages ago and conveniently forget. That isn't the kind of funny I try to be.

Your story is entertaining, and I hope you finish it someday. I like it just the way it is, but I'm sure whatever you're doing with it now will turn out well too.

Not to give you more weird comments or anything, but I saw your journal link on the site, and thought, Hey, maybe I'll find more information about the fic there...

nah. its cool. that was one of the very first things i said when all this mail started pouring in. and yeah, if you want information about the site or other fics that i'm working on (original and fan) it is best to come here for it. just friend me and i'll put you on the right filter. lj gets updated before the site does anyway.

thank you.

I ain't nothin but a hound dog
So so so so! Getting that new chapter of Rules of the Game finished yet? I said I'd hound you and now I am. ;) I know you have a life and all but you started that fic and by George you have to finish it! ...and also I'm gonna die if I don't find out who Hikaru ends up smexing in the end. There will be smex, right? If there's not then I hope there's gonna be some more really good UST. I love that stuff.

Re: I ain't nothin but a hound dog
sorry. had to go out of town or would have responded before this. um yeah. swing by the site around the 8th at the latest and it should be finished. at least that's what i'm aiming for. and . . . smex *gulps* dude, my track record with writing smex is pretty bad (don't believe me read our gw fics *shudders*). . . *brightens* but i may draw picture. no promises on that one though.

Re: I ain't nothin but a hound dog
Yay! Smex! I look forward to it. And don't worry, as long as you keep it realistic, no one will care whether it' good or not, they'll be too busy squeeing (or at least I will). I'm so glad you updated! I'm gonna go read the smex now!
