A new year...

Posted by The Almighty L on December 31, 2010 at 6:02 PM

2011 will be upon us in about 6 hours...


So since it's a time for change you'll notice that the site has gotten a new look. I've also redone the chapters of No Time to be Engaged. There is a new scene that was previously omitted and lots of other changes because after digging around in the Naruto universe I had to make some adjustments to make Gin's age right. Oo Almost the whole frikken cast of that manga aren't even 1/4 of a century old. Being a teenager in Japan must suck - I swear you have to save the world at least once before you graduate middle school. Chapter 6 is in the editing stages.


Bad Romance has also gotten a bit of an overhaul. You'll notice the artwok on the ToC? Well, that is Aspen and Sam drawn by JessKat83 at Deviant Art. Check out the rest of her stuff. I personally love their expressions and the Gir hoodie! Gir! Doom doom doom doom doom....


Chapter 5 of Silent Seduction is on its way in. I'm almost done writing it and then it will be off to editing. (UPDATE: Chapter 5 is up!)


There are four... dear god, yes, I said four more stories coming in too. A new rendition of Phantom of the Opera, a Cinderella/Aladdin-esque fairy tale, a short story based on an old unfinished RP and a fanfic request for the time period between the Mummy and the Mummy Returns featuring Ardeth Bay.


I'm rediculously busy if you can't tell... Plus, I have 3 more drawings to finish and my movie script I'm still writing... And I go back to school on January 18th if I can argue with the school to fix a little problem we're having. -_- Frikken teachers are asses...


Anyways, 'til next time...


Happy

New Year!


Enjoy the following "real" lyrics of Alud Lang Syne (Authors: Sir Robert Ayton & Ramsay - featured in his book Scots Songs, 1720)


"Should auld acquaintance be forgot,

And never thought upon,

The flames of love extinguished,

And freely past and gone?

Is thy kind heart now grown so cold

In that loving breast of thine,

That thou canst never once reflect

On old-long-syne?


"On old long syne.

On old long syne, my jo,

On old long syne:

That thou canst never once reflect

On old long syne."


"Should auld acquaintance be forgot,

Tho' they return with scars?

These are the noble hero's lot,

Obtain'd in glorious wars:

Welcome, my Varo, to my breast,

Thy arms about me twine.

And make me once again as blest,

As I was lang syne."


"On old long syne.

On old long syne, my jo,

On old long syne:

That thou canst never once reflect

On old long syne."


"Should auld acquaintance be forgot,

Or friendship e'er grow cauld?

Should we nae tighter draw the knot

Aye as we're growing auld?

How comes it, then, my worthy friend,

Wha used to be sae kin',

We dinna for ilk ither spier

As we did lang syne?"
