I just learned today that bato.to is going to be shutting down. It has long been my favorite place to read fan translations and I will definitely be sad to see it go.
Since that is occurring I will be placing my follows list from there on the manga/anime rec page so that I don’t forget some of the more obscure enjoyable works I read. It will be a while before that will be properly cleaned after I do that as I will try to find the appropriate places to read the manga placed there.
So, I have stuck every fanfiction link onto the many different pages. That means that I can now focus on cleaning up the pages and putting the larger pages into subdivisions to be more manageable. Also if I find more enjoyable stories I can just go ahead and add them instead of having a large list in front of them. I may also add a few more series to the book recommendation page I have right now. I think I also need to update the Cape High summary since there’s been a few more books come out.
So happy new year, if you use the Gregorian calendar anyway.
My computer thanks me for getting rid of the Naruto folder. I’ve dumped what I think is all the Naruto story links: turns out I had multiple links of a good many stories, some I think I put multiple times in the link dump on the Naruto page.
I’ve already seen much improvement in my browser, but I think I shall continue with the link dump since I am still adding more bookmarked stories every so many days.
I have also decided that I have so many stories on the Naruto page that once I finish the link dump and start cleaning up pages, when I turn my attention to the Naruto page once more, I shall start divvying up the stories into genres. Well, not so much genres as [I can’t remember the right word/description] subject matter such as time travel stories, reincarnation stories, gen, romance, whump, that sort of thing. For instance in Bleach fanfiction, there would be a Ichigo-is-Kaien category; or in the Harry Potter/ Katekyou Hitman Reborn! crossovers there would be a Harry-is-Skull category. In Naruto there might be a Naruto-is-a-Uchiha category. [That might be an overly complicated category considering some of the stories I’ve run across.]
But before that happens I still have a few more link dumps to occur. I have created a Katekyo Hitman Reborn page and a Sherlock Holmes page. There may be some fics interpreted as slash in the Sherlock page as I tend to interpret John Watson and Sherlock Holmes as a queerplatonic relationship and some fics that are supposed to be slash [according to the author] can also be interpreted that way and I willfully do that.
Anyway, I have no more to say, except:
May the worlds in which you tumble within
Discover new thoughts and words that sing
Of worlds within your mind to put to pen
That you may share with the world your written string.
Let your page unfurl to the world!
Hello! So I recently have been suffering from computer issues. Namely, I have so memory and CPU being used up (especially when I open my computer browser) that my computer slows to the point that it becomes difficult to use it. I’ve managed to use a few temporary measures but it’s become fairly clear that the browser is using far more resources than it needs to. I have decided the simplest solution is just wiping everything from the browser (either that or switching to a different browser which is NOT happening); but if I do it in the manner I’m going to lose something very important: my bookmarks. Honestly I think the bookmarks might be a major reason my browser takes up so much space. Why is this important? Because I have decided to just dump all the bookmarked links in the appropriate places on here. They’re not going to neat or orderly, it’s just going to be a bunch of links dumped all over the pages. There’s quite a few, and that is probably the largest understatement I’ve ever made.
It’s a bit early for spring cleaning, but oh well.
Okay, so right now I have around five papers that I need to be writing. But instead I’m going to start the Boku no Hero Academia/My Hero Academia page because I’m really stuck on that fandom, and I want more Dad All Might fics and there are seriously not enough yet! There also need to be more time travel fics and “All-for-one is actually Izuku’s dad fics.” So instead of catching up on sleep or writing a paper, I am going to start that page after I hit the publish button for this. Also, it looks like most of the fics that I have found are cross-posted to both AO3 and FF.net so I’m not going to have specific separated sections for them on that page.
Hello! This is just a little note to say thanks, and also state that I should be able to get back to large editing sometime in December,probably after the 15th, since that is when my finals will be officially over. Also, I recently became interested My Hero Academia and I have started adding fanfiction from its fandom into my folders, so when I get a chance I will be starting a page with that. I’m hoping to get a chance to go over the stories that are in some of my pages of the fandoms I have been familiar with longer , such as Danny Phantom, as I’ve noticed that some of them have stories with quality that is less than desirable. When I’m really enjoying(i.e. stuck in/obsessed with) a fandom I tend to overlook quality in favor of plot, so I need to be a bit more critical of those.
Also, I had a really interesting chance this semester to study fanfiction from a critical standpoint, it was fascinating, and I’m hoping to incorporate some of what I’ve learned into blog posts at some point, as well as into my “Opinions” on the pages.
This is just a small post about a discovery I made while doing my homework. I am studying Shakespeare’s plays this semester, and am currently on Henry IV, Part 1. Whilst reading, I came upon a scene in which several characters put on masks. However, instead of saying mask, they say “vizard.” I’ve seen this word before, and in the context of masks. However, when I had seen it before, most people were arguing that the word was simply made up or a misspelling. It’s not! It’s a word that was used in Elizabethan times. The Bleach fandom just got way cooler to me.
So actually I have been doing a little editing despite school. Just a tad. More than I should be especially with Midterms coming up, and starting on the Honors program. I’m so excited about the project I’ll be doing!
But that’s not the point of this page. I have decided, since I have found one or two Webcomics that I find interesting, to create a Recommended Webcomics page.
I actually only had one Webcomic I was doing any serious following of: El Goonish Shive, a webcomic quite filled with transformative hijinks, and a few magical adventures.
However I happened to click on an ad, which led me to a webcomic author who had a lovely style. Her comic Wilde Life is ongoing and after finishing it, made me wish for more by her. Investigating, I discovered a link that led to her previous work, a webcomic called Zap!
Much like El Goonish Shive, the artwork’s a bit rough at the beginning, but the story is incredible. I find it a brilliant story, and it has inspired me to start a new page. But why are you still here? Go read Zap! It’s awesome!
Huh, that title sounds horribly pretentious.Ah well, I’ve always thought I sound horribly pretentious anyway. But I’m merely “announcing” that I probably won’t be able to edit much this fall. I’m going to be taking a full semester and I’m hoping to get involved with a couple groups as well. Not only that but I’m planning on being ambitious enough to attempt to make my GPA raise a bit higher than it currently is. So I have to figure out when I’m doing what before I figure out when I want to edit. I definitely will still attempt to do so, I just won’t have as much time: 4 English classes, doncha’ know.
In other news RJ Ross has released another book: Cape High Villainy: A Side Story (Cape High Series) which was quite enjoyable as it showed more of the adult side of the storyverse. Well, and Skystep.
I honestly think that’s all.
My! I’ve been on quite an editing bent. That new method WordPress is using is really motivating me! I’ve added a bit more to the Danny Phantom page, and am tentatively labeling the Noblesse page finished as I’ve pulled all the fics I followed on ff.net onto that page. I suppose at some point I’ll need to add AO3 fics to that page, we’ll see. Now, I’m going to take a break to reread Forms of Elegance, and maybe do some cleaning.
