Blue Rose #2

Posted by godaironin on August 9, 2010 at 12:31 PM Comments comments (0)

Today is my birthday and it was supposed to be the day Blue Rose #2 rolled out. However Haru is still working on edits and it's twice as long as Blue Rose #1, so this is still taking a while. I'll be happy if I can get it out there by September.

Got some good response when story #1 was re-edited and reposted on FFN, and hopefully that will progress to a good response on story #2. I will roll the story out in stages, chapter by chapter, on FFN and Darkscribes, as well as on t...

Chapter 1 Revision

Posted by godaironin on August 3, 2010 at 1:38 AM Comments comments (0)

I've done a rewrite of Chapter 1, mostly to smooth it out. Chapter 1 was the very first thing I wrote for the story, and the original version reflected me at my earlier skill level. I was never really happy with it and felt it needed some serious tweaking, especially after seeing some readers drop off the story at FFN.  As a result of the changes I think it flows better, and the character's actions make a bit more sense.  Anyway, it's up on the site and I'll start modifying the stor...

Beta Reading and Name Changes

Posted by godaironin on June 6, 2010 at 3:32 PM Comments comments (0)

Currently the second story is in beta reading phase, with one reader complete and two ongoing. I anticipate receiving all of the beta feedback by end of June and then will work on the final edits in July, with a target publish date of August 9.  Like with the last story, I will roll it out chapter by chapter on the major fanfiction sites like FFO and Darkscribes.

There are two major hurdles to overcome still at this stage. One is the name. I named this story Redempti...

Redemption Rough Draft complete

Posted by godaironin on May 21, 2010 at 4:07 PM Comments comments (0)

As of yesterday the rough draft of Redemption, the Blue Rose sequel, is completed. The text-only version finally clocked in at 200 pages, with 100,000 words. That's about 60% larger than Blue Rose. The rough is now sent to the beta readers for their work and hopefully I'll be working on a final draft by next month, and still on schedule to finish completely by July.


Compared to Blue Rose the new story is much more epic in scale, as it takes place ...

The Story Continues

Posted by godaironin on November 23, 2009 at 12:06 AM Comments comments (0)

Currently I'm working on a sequel to Blue Rose, named Redemption.  Originally i wrote the story that became Blue Rose as a one-shot. However I thought writing a sequel to it would present a very interesting challenge and after a lot of effort managed to work up what I think is a good story that continues from the situations presented in Blue Rose and carries them through to End of Evangelion.

While I don't want to give a whole lot away, I ca...

Funamation will release Rebuild of Evangelion 1.01 in the USA on DVD in early November, with a Blu-Ray release (1.11) in the Spring. No word on if Funamation's gone ahead and purchased the rights to EVA 2.0.

If you go to Writer's Notes, there's another new image that goes along with the story, something that shows a possible future. I won't post it here but you can link there and scroll to the bottom.  Enjoy!

Today finally marks the day that I have completely finished Blue Rose.  On this page I have posted the final cleaned up and grammar corrected version of the story in its final form (there was one scene tweak in Chapter 2, otherwise the story itself is intact).

If you've been here before you might also notice that there are new images on the site, including this new front cover image:

Evangelion 1.+++

Posted by godaironin on July 3, 2009 at 12:26 AM Comments comments (0)
This weekend Anime Expo will debut the Evangelion 1.0 English dub, done by Funimation.  This is a preview: the actual movie becomes available in November on DVD (no word on BluRay).

It took nearly two years to get EVA to an official US release, which is really a tragedy considering how good the film is.  I'm sure part of the delay is that ADV Films probably had the initial rights, but couldn't fork up the licensing fee.  That put EVA in limbo until another bidder, such as F...

Evangelion 2.0

Posted by godaironin on July 3, 2009 at 12:20 AM Comments comments (0)
The second Rebuild of EVA movie: 2.0, or You Can (Not) Advance, came out in Japan on June 27th to very good reviews.  I read several of them, along with one viewer's detailed synopsis, and the conclusion of most of them was that the film not only honors the original EVA but takes it in an entirely different (and very unpredictable) direction.  EVA fans who were worried about the new character Mary Illustrious detracting from the plot shouldn't: ...
