Hot damn! It took forever but I’ve finally finished the first chapter of MGS! …Not that many people currently care, but the fact stands that it is done and now there’s no turning back. I am going to finish this story no matter how long it takes me!
Chapter 1’s word count clocks in at… 3401 words! Pretty good!
Anyways, even though it was hard, I had fun writing this chapter. I hope someone out there enjoys reading it, even if it’s just in that “Oh man this is so bad it’s good” sort of way.
Today was the day. The day that Sylvia Eberhardt’s summer vacation was as good as over. Sighing, the teen looked over at the clock balanced precariously atop a pile of recently read manga. It had just flipped over to 2:00 PM, eastern standard time. In an hour, her cousin Kate would arrive at the bus station and she had to be there to pick her up. Kate would never last on her own in the city. There was no doubt in Sylvia’s mind that her airhead cousin would get hopelessly lost. Sylvia had never gotten along well with her cousin. They had nothing in common… except for a small dependence on gourmet coffee. The two were on good enough terms, though so… It could be worse.
So. I got a little sidetracked while writing the first chapter. This here is the product of some Eluveitie and talking in a Touhou chatroom on IRC. Bitchin’. I might end up writing (and probably posting) more little Touhou things here as well, seeing as I really have nowhere else to put them… Anyways! Here you go! Enjoy~
With gritted teeth, Meiling braced for the nearing attack. Her eyes were wide with battle lust, furiously gathering chi into her tightly clenched fist. “I will NOT be defeated!” she roared, meeting the devastating Master Spark head-on. Her fist flew forward, crashing into the magical beam with a bright flash. An explosion soon followed, two halves of the bisected Master Spark deflecting off through the cloud of smoke and debris. Chips of rock fell around them, the cloud quickly clearing. Marisa stared on in awe, unable to believe the sight before her. The lazy Gate Guard of the Scarlet Devil Mansion was still standing, fist outstretched. There were two deep gouges in the earth on either side of her, forking off to their own separate areas of total destruction. Blood dripped from her knuckles, scrapes and gashes along her arm but she was overall unharmed. There was a confident grin plastered on her face, and the look in her eyes… she looked to be enjoying this. Her chest heaved and flares of shimmering rainbow energy were swirling through the air, seemingly more concentrated around her fist.
“The hell!?” the witch managed to stammer. “How’d you do that, ze….”
“By giving my all!” Meiling called back. “Now you done with this no-rules spar or do you want to continue?” The youkai loosened up, though she remained in a battle-ready stance, standing lightly on her feet with both fists raised.
Wow. It’s…. been some time since I started this blog. But as fast as I got ideas I managed to run into a writer’s block. Lemme tell you. Writing the first part of the first chapter of ANYTHING sucks SO MUCH. I… Absolutely hate it. Terrible terrible terrible. But good news everyone! I’ve managed to start the first chapter of Magical Girl Saga! It’s not too great so far but I’m still working on it. Currently in the process of establishing the main character and her personality. Gah I really hope this turns out well. But hopefully things will be smoother once I get to chapter 2. Because that’s where all the magical awesomeness starts to happen~
Anyways I’m gonna head back to actually writing now. *thumbs up*
Over and out~
Here we have an interesting site. A blog by someone who has never done so before. Gasp. How shocking!
It’s not gonna be about my life or anything like that. This is going to be the home of my pet project.
Magical Girl Saga: Knights of New York is an affectionate parody of the Magical Girl/Fantasy genres and will make good use of tropes and standards of the genres for (hopefully) some laughs. The written story as well as news, character profiles, art, and other things related to the project will all be posted here.
Well. We’ll leave it at that for now. Cheers~
