I'm late! I'm late! - Convolutions of an Evil Mind
I'm late! I'm late!
I'm SOOOOoooo behind on my "Black Feathers" deadline for Mas-Zine. I wrote part 1 'on-the-fly' so to speak. I was so busy setting up the basic plot that I didn't get around to really fleshing out Kaylin's and Skya's characters. Only when I really started to work on Part 2 did I sit down and really tried to figure out what made them (especially Skya) tick.

Well, I finally managed to come up with what I consider a plausible motivation for Skya's torturing Kaylin (instead of merely being a power-hungry loon), not to mention work out the entire plot of the story (with particularly nasty twists here and there, inspired by a certain sinister half-seen character from Yami no Matsuei ::evil cackle::).

Hopefully this more fully developed version of Skya will be both more sympathetic and more despicable -- sympathetic because he does have good reason for feeling the way he does, yet at the same time despicable because his pride, stubbornness, and other emotions drive him to ruthlessly abuse the one person who would've understood his feelings and perhaps even helped him (to rescue his twin brother, at least).

Sounds like the making of a serious tragedy, doesn't it? Unforgivable wrongs and all that. But since I write darkfics, but definitely not sadfics, I've come up with a happy ending... in a perverse and decidedly twisted sort of way. ^_-

Well, all this character development is well and good, but it entails going back and tweaking... okay, rewriting chunks of part 1 for consistency's sake. ::sigh:: Back to work.....

Gambatte ne, Hydra-chan! I'm certainly interested in reading part 2. ^_^v

(Sorry I've been so scarce -- work and computer problems are conspiring against me. :P)

Ooh, Black Feathers part 2! That's nice to look forward to... man, I wish you would get infatuated with Hikaru no Go. There is such a shortage of quality Hikago fics even though it's a really worthy series...

Part 2!

Wow! I thought you had completely forgotten about that story. :P I was all heart-broken because I didn't think that I would be able to find out what happens next. :) Can't wait to see part 2. But I'm wondering, would part 2 be published on MAS-Zine or would it be on your web-site?
