Ok, people. This is my new home for almost all of my current stories and artwork. If you want to read a story of mine or see some of my terrible artwork, it will most likely be here. For those of you confused by the journal name, Zayase is my penname (loooong story).  I plan to make this journal prettier, so I'll be stealing the photoshop skillz of certain people (you know who you are!) to accomplish this. Free free to friend this journal. Acutally, if you are REALLY interested in reading my stuff, please for the love of God, friend it! I don't want to be saying in every post of my real life journal: "Please check out zayase_media for chapter 23571 of Billy Joe Bob's Magical Adventure!". It will be a pain. -_-

Expect to see something on here very soon. I will also post whether a certain piece of work is in progress, near completion, or completed. Thanks to everyone who's interested in my crap. It motivates me to continue to write and draw, regardless of what others might think. ^_^

According to LJ, I haven't posted anything in 30 WEEKS! Goddamn. Anyway, the wait is over. Part 1 of Chapter 1 of P&P (name change very soon actually!) is finally done. There's been some minor editing but I have yet to actually go through and heavily edit anything. That will be done in due time. Anyway, try to enjoy. Also, feel free to take your guesses as to who you think is the murderer, the modus operandi and ect. It sucks major, but here we go:

Ch. 1: The Spice of Life and Death...... Part OneCollapse )

After....how many weeks? I dunno. I give to you the beginning of the first chapter of P&P. They say the five questions you have to ask yourself when writing a mystery are: Who? What? When? Where? Why? This contains what happened, when it happened, and where it happened, all in miniscule detail. The big details will be in the case debrief with the Chief, not Lynne Thigpen (Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego's Chief XD). Try to enjoy.


The rest will be coming very soon. :D

So, the first chapter of P & P is actually almost finished. I just have massive writer's block right now, due to the fact that I'm mucho stressed and I'm preparing for my trip to the Moon next month. The next scene isn't that hard though. It's just sex, but it's not just any kind of sex. It's "character development plot-worthy sex" :DD. So, I really have to think about how I'm going to write it, since it's not there to just be....there. God, I'm so used to writing pointless pron...

I might as well tell you now, that the main character, Phil, you know...from the prolouge, you most likely won't like him. Unless you like sarcastic, self-absorbed, sorta-kinda racist and assey bastards. Well, he's not omg racist, but he can say some pretty offensive things to people of other races and ethnicities. Oh, and he has the libido of a male dog. Yeah. Just letting you know what you're in for. :3

The prolouge of P & P is finally FINISHEEEDDDD!!! :DDDDDDD
Expect it up this evening after I come home from work. It's not too long, and it might seem a bit rushed...but that's the desired pacing I had for it. There's a reason why I made everything "boom boom bam bam fast pacing lololololz". Since it seemed to happen so quickly to the main character, the pacing reflects that. The situation in the prolouge will have a slower, less "wtf" factor way later on in the story. So, this new period piece story will make its debut later on tonight. Anticipate it. :D

1930s fashion and hair.....oh boy....

So......yeah....;___;. Um....gonna try to be accurate without....throwing up on my computer. What I'm going to do is, make up my own style, but still be consistent with the time period. I know ankle and below-the-knee length dresses and skirts were in style back then, BUT I LIKE MY KNEE-LENGTH SKIRTS AND DRESSES. That is why some female characters will have them, but it's still sticking to the 1930s look. And I fucking hate the fingerwave hairstyle, but alas, many characters will have them (except for Phoebe cause she's British and I plan to make her different!). Bobs I don't mind as much.....just the fingerwaves.....oh God. -_-

I will be posting my research and telling you what I plan to actually put in this damn story. Mafias? Yes. Speakeasies? In the 20s flashbacks, yes. People suffering and the economy gone to shit? Of course? You can't have a Great Depression without people getting emotionally depressed...and angry. :DDD

So...after my friend and I had a few drinks (few meaning a lot), he decided (well...we..) on the title to my new story. It's the most stereotypically anime-ish name I have ever heard, but I guess it will do for now..now that I'm back to my senses...I guess...

Here's a one paragraph preview of the prolouge. Try to enjoy it....as much as I enjoy researching for it. Orz...:'-D

Yeah...it sucks so far, I know...but I love talking about other people's hardships and strife. :DDD This story will switch from the 30s to the 20s occasionally (for flashback purposes), so it will be like going back in time to a totally different time period (the 20s were happier and had flappers and speakeasies. Fuck yeah!) I am going to try to make it as accurate as possible, from the fashion, to the cars, to even the music, and I love 30s music. There will be a few anachronisms from time to time, but it's all in good practical fun. I will try to bring out the beauty of 1930s New York City, as well as the things that make it ugly...cause NY is the shiz. And prohibition can go fuck itself. I like my alcohol. -_-;;

Expect the whole prolouge to be up later this week. AS...is coming soon too....

 I don't have a title for it yet, and suggestions are welcome, but this idea came about by eating too many Doritos, watching 4324 episodes of Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego, rereading my Nancy Drew, Encyclopedia Brown and Hardy Boys books, and a dream. All in the same day. So yeah, here it is:

In the late 1920s, New York City had the two best detectives the country had ever seen. Detectives Philip Carmichael and Evelyn Johansen were a dynamic duo, cleaning up crime and solving cases everywhere they were needed. They were definitely a team to contend with....until Johansen was killed while on the biggest case they had yet. After the untimely death of the detective, Philip refused to work with another partner, until five years later when he's forced to work with Phoebe Windsor, a young and spunky novice sleuth from London, England. Despite Phil's automatic dislike for Phoebe, he will have to work with her to solve the toughest crimes in the era of the Great Depression.

It's a historical mystery/suspense/adventure story. It may sound boring as hell, but I have A LOT more planned. Mafia crime bosses, serial killers/stalkers and who can hate the speakeasys?! Yay for the 1930's! I have to do a lot of homework for this story, but it will be worth it. :DDD

As for AS...um...it's coming. ^_^;;;
