I can now proudly say: I have finally managed to finish the seventh chapter of my Bleach-Naruto Crossover-Fanfiction Crossing Over!
As I said in my previous post:
I had the chapter nearly written out for quite a while, but it was not what I wanted it to be like. I wanted to add better transitions and better phrasing. Maybe even some more scenes.
And it’s not like I didn’t know what to write, but I just didn’t really have the time to do so. Going from one Semester to the other. From one exam to the next and so forth. Barely even had time to take a breather at all. But with the Christmas days and some vacation days I finally managed to get it done.
I can’t promise the next chapter will be online faster, but I kind of doubt it will take as long as this one.
As for the chapter itself, I can give you two new songs:
Both Rangiku-parts were accompanied by Stratovarius “Hunting High and Low”, while Byakukay’s part held another Blind Guardian song: “Curse my Name”. I made a list of which songs I already used and discovered that this is the forth song of this band and the second time I used it for that character.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy(ed) the chapter and you excuse my lack of updates these past months and the months to come.
Again I have the next chapter planned, and partly written out, but I have more phrasing to do with this one. I do have a planned out storyline, but I have a tendency for shoving some of the topics around to regain a certain balance within each chapter. For the last chapter I even got a positive Review regarding the balance of character-time. I am always grateful for input like that.
An author can only do so little to ensure their work is liked by his audience and this is even worse when it comes to fiction about stories that already exists. But I will have a closer look into the depths of Fanfictions with one of my upcoming posts. 😉
We’ll see how far I’ll come with the next chapter and every other plans as my bachelor’s thesis is just around the corner.
But fear not!
I will still update the blog regardless – as I have done so far as well.
As I said there will be a post about Fanfiction, also the second part of my Wacken-Review is in the making, as well as posts about other festivals and conventions I’ve attended (*cough* last year*cough*).
I also got some ideas for a set of short stories centering around a society of dwarfs. One is even already typed and will be published soon, others so far are mere ideas.
Other than that I started making a recorded version of the chapters of Crossing Over so far and I might add other things that I’d like to rant about.
But still there are exams that want to be passed, a bachelor’s thesis that wants to be written and a hand that wants to be healed.
So stay tuned, I will return. =)
