Heya guys, Zara here

So as you may have guessed from the lack of posting stories and such (well, a lot less than my norm) school has indeed taken it's toll on me and as such, demands 110% of my time now.
It makes sense, it's the final year of my degree.There's presentations, internships, humungous reports, ethics committees, research projects and that's not even part of my final exams! There's still classes, exams, kanji, grammar, all that lovely stuff and  to add the cherry on  top, JLPT (this year is L2)

So in light of all that, as you guys may have already accurately guessed, my head for writing, especially my own stories  has dwindled down to nearly non-existant.
Don't get me wrong. This does not mean I don't want to write. It's actually much  easier to write  with Rika and Jennie, that's  why I'm still doing it. But writing by myself has always been a little more challenging and with everything that's going on at the moment, I find myself with less and less time  and headspace to be able to do it.

I'm looking over my current running stories and trying to figure out which ones I need to prioritise, which ones I should carry on with and which ones I can't carry on with, even if I have the time.
So here's what I'm thinking.

Chances are, when all of this is over and I'm FINALLY on break in December, chances are I'm going to want to write again. I know my head, it's just what happens. When I don't have school, I want to write. It's just naturally in my nature to want to write stories. Which means that in December, when  everything is done and I can finally breathe,  I will be back with my stories and I will be back with a vengeance. (vengance? how does one spell that word??? *too lazy to google it*)
Until then, I need you guys to wait. I promise this, I don't start stories with no intention to finish it. Every single multichapter that is on this livejournal,  I fully intend on finishing. I will not leave them unfinished, but I need the time to finish  this damned degree  and then come back to write. I am a reader, I know how annoying it is to have a story that doesn't get finished and as busy as I can get, I don't intend on doing the same thing.

So hyphens, as scattered as  we are with our boys on the recharge, if there is anyone out there still reading my stuff or waiting for me, I promise you I will be back. Unlike KAT-TUN, my recharge period has an end-date and that is December.
Come December, I will be back and that is where you guys come in.

I know I've asked this before but as this may very well be the last time I post up another chapter until December, let me know where you want me to start.

My current running multichapters are:

  • The Lost Weeks (Judgement Call 4)

  • Trial Zero (Whitecap Widow  2)

  • Son of the Signs

  • Nightfall

  • Ashtray Heart

  • Wastelands

  • Elemental Series

All banners done by the wonderful [ profile] harajukyuu

So yes, let me  know what you want, what you think of the current running stories. I know it has been awhile since I've written but even if by now I'm only writing to one person, that'll be enough for me. Readers are lovely, they really are. To know words can move someone else (or make this recharge period a little better) is great but if I'm being  totally honest, I've always written because I want to write and even if I had no  readers, I'd probably  keep writing.

Until then, I need to let my Japanese degree beat the shit out of me before I dare try doing anything else.

This is not a total recharge period. I'm still able to write with Rika and Jen as it is much easier to have another brain to bounce off but with my own stories, December will have to be the time when I come back.

So this time, love and comments are welcome! Let me know you're out there, let me know you're reading, let me know you still want to read  :)
And I will see you again when I come back.

all i can say, u have made the right decision since we need to prioritize our life first before anything else. it's understandable and i respect your decision. i hope you can focus on the learning stuff and make yourself, family and friends proud.

i dont know if i've told you this before, that I AM YOUR and RIKA FANFIC FAN! lol. really love your writing style (either with Rika or Jen). So, it might sound selfish of me, but i really want you start with Trial Zero (Whitecap Widow 2). ngeee.

See you when you come back.

I'm guilty as well, as I've been less active as a reader as I used to.
But I'm still around... just dealing with RL too. >_>

I can't say which one I'd love to read first, because I like them all... ^^'
My suggestion would be, if your muse behaves and cooperates, to give precedence to the story which either has a clear ending and structure or is near its ending.
Just to deliver one complete story instead of bits of all. That worked well while you could write anytime, and it was probably more fun for you while writing.
With a limited timeframe, I'd go with the one at a time approach (with possible muses' interference).



You study hard, I'll get a new job and let's meet again in Tokyo soon!

I love you for being clear about your own thoughts, likes, and priorities. I do understand your struggle since I'm in my last year as well, and damn, the semester break before this didn't even feel like a holiday since I had to do my internship then and also had to write a report out of them (which basically the simple version of my final assignment/thesis). So yeah, good luck there Zara! Ganbarimashou!

About your fics, honestly I almost never go to LJ nowadays and waiting for your updates (here and the white_ivy's ones) is almost the sole reason I even bother checking on my friends page. So with this said, I'm definitely waiting for your comeback.

And how one's supposed to make a list out of these??! I love all of these fics!

Hmmm... I've been waiting for Elemental series for so long, so maybe I want that. And I also really want to know about akame's dynamic being partners in Wasteland... (Seriously I've made a comment asking you if you're gonna continue these fics~)
But I also want a closure for judgement call (I love that series to bits! The series dragged me into loving you and wanting to read all of the other fics you've made!). Honestly I think I've once commented on the sequence of pairing I want you to write for The Lost Weeks...
I want all the other three as well (and if I'm allowed to be greedy, I want the update for A.I Series and The Eleventh Passenger too~)

Anyway, whichever you want to write first, I'll read it willingly. Thank you for being such a royal Akame writer!^^ I wish you all the best luck! I know you're gonna nail your degree!^^

School is the most important thing for you right now so beat it and come back :D
I know it will be hard but you are definitely gonna make it the best :)
Ganbatte ne ♥

As for stories I must say I love everyone but my number 1 was always Elemental Series , it was the first story I´ve read here and even through I gave up on hope that you will continue it someday it I still love it as the first time I´ve read it :D and I´ve read it many times :D It also inspire me to draw Kame and Jin (I can show you sometime if you would want ) ......♥ so if you will have time in December or anytime I would be the happiest person if I could read another chapter :)

We will be waiting for you :-) so do your best ♥

I've been waiting for the next chapter of Trial Zero for what feels like forever.
December feels like.... more than forever.
But I guess shikatanaine.
I also got a degree in Japanese and remember my final year, so I understand.

But yes, when you have the time, please do Trial Zero.

I love all of your stories, every single one of them and your other post are awesome (even if I don't leave much comments, sorry) So you can bet that I'll be waiting for your return in December. If I really has to pick one specifically that I can't wait for it's Ashtray Heart. I don't know I just love that story.

Anyway, i wish you the best luck in your studies, I understand how much it sucks to have all that work. Here something that always motivates me so hopefully it helps you. lol (n_n)

"Be a Wolf. Be a Lion . Set goals. Smash them. Be stronger. Be better. Show people who you are. Never apologize for being awesome. Stay positive .Stay the course."

Its so sad to know that you'll be away for some time, should I say, you'll be on recharging too..
but I am your reader slash fan and I love your stories so I will wait until December until you finish your degree.
If I get to choose one story of yours that I want to read before your recharging period take place.

Good luck Zara! Until we meet again!

Hey :-)
At first I would like to wish you luck and aend you good energy to help you pass all these dutues you have now :-)

About fanfic...tough question because I love every fic you wrore. So it is really difficult to decide because I woul like to know what will happen with Kame and Jin in every fic. But if I have to choose it would be Nightfall and Ashtray Heart :-)
