Back from Lazing out... LOL..

I suddenly realized that it has nearly been two weeks since I last updated any of my stories. For that, I deeply apologize. I have been deeply caught up with my current obsession: Big Bang and 2NE1. Big Bang has just released their Japanese single entitled "My Heaven" and I've been spazzing over it... haha Pardon the fan-girliness.

Anyway, I have updated Capturing the Casanova today just to start off my pile of work. I was quite surprised by the reactions of the readers of CTC (both on Soompi and on Winglin). For one, new readers kept popping. Secondly, I was being constantly pressured to update soon. LOL. Thirdly, I am posting CTC on (for a change).

Earlier this week, I received an email telling me that yurika'hellgirl has sent me a PM at (a site I have not visited for years... literally). Upon receiving the PM, I was mentally debating whether I should check out my account over at or not since I have not maintained it for so long.

Tonight, I finally made up my mind and decided to check it out. I also replied to the PM, by the way. LOL. Anyway, as I was browsing around, I checked out whether they had a category for the fanfiction stories of Boys Before Flowers TV series. Luckily, they did! HAH!

So now, I've decided to post up CTC at as well. This may also lead me to revive my long-negleted account over there. LOL. Hey, is where I started with fanfictions. I still remember where I started. :)

Down with Flu...

I have been absent from Soompi, Winglin, PS-ing and anything else for like what? Five days? Yes, I think that's right. I've been off writing and even reading for five days due to a freaking flu. Nope, not swine flu, just a regular but nonetheless annoying flu, which kept me tucked in bed for more than three days. God... It was... hellish. I could only think back on all the things I could have done in those five precious days of my summer vacation. *sigh*

The first thing I did after going online was check out Soompi and my emails, yes, that's email with an 'S' (I have multiple emails for a multitude of purposes). Thank God nothing majorly phenomenal happened while I'm gone, except for a surprising increase on the PM List of Ignominy on Soompi. I thought very few people read that story since it's like... a slice of life sort of fic, being a little heavy on being realistic stuff. In short, not everyone's kind of story.

Then, after that, I also... erm... lazed a little more by reading tons of manga online. Can you believe that? haha I was actually giggling over two-dimensional characters instead of planning out the next chapters for my stories. *shrug* Who could blame me for falling pawn to the charms of tons of bishounens? I've especially taken a soft spot for the bishie twins, Angus and Eros from the manhua, The One by Lee Nicky. The lead girl was pretty cracked up too. As to achieve a squeal&spazz-inducing state of paranoia, I've been high with Sakurazaka Mizuki's bishounen features though she's a girl and Shiraishi Akira's kawaii overload, though he's a guy. haha Ai Wo Utau Yori Ore ni Oborero by Shinjo Mayo maybe a gender bender but it's a great read!

Anyway, now that I'm back, I plan to be back on track, both in writing and in reading within the next few days. School opening lurks just around the corner so I have to take advantage of my remaining free days. Gosh... Now, this reminds me, I haven't enrolled for the next semester yet. I don't even know when's the schedule for enrollment! *gasp* Clumsy me. I've over deluded myself in the fiction world. haha

Anyway, for now, I decided to put up this post just to update those that even take time to visit this blog (if there are indeed anyone who visits this) about the recent occurences that affect (interfere) with my writing and anything related with that.

Yosh. With all those explained and settled, I'm now off to to hunt for some juicy fiction finds. haha

Enigmatic & TCI Fanfictionalized @ Winglin

Before anything else, I'd like to announce to everyone that I have posted The Crimson Insignia on Winglin. I have fanfictionalized it. haha Added to that, I made an alternate poster for the fanfiction version of it.

As much as I'd like to post the Character Chart and new poster on Soompi, I believe I will be going against the rules if I did that since I labeled my story as Non-Gasoo...

Here's the alternate poster with character chart that I made...
Kim Jae Joong as Shin
Miura Shohei as Ryou
Yamashita Tomohisa as Taiki
Lee Jun Ki as Akira
Lee Seung Hyun/Seungri as Kenta

The only difference between the original story and the fanfiction version is that there's a character chart in the fanfictionalized version. That's it. I figured that if I posted it on Winglin, I needed at least a character chart.

If you would like to read it, click HERE.

Now, moving on to the latest chapter of The Crimson Insignia.
Chapter 11: "Enigmatic"

Enigmatic (adj) - arcane, cabalistic, cryptic, mysterious, puzzling...

The reason that this Chapter was
entitled as such because of two things:
1.) Shin as an unreadable person.
2.) The uncrackable code sent in by Pride
which is to be uncovered later on.

Also, I noticed that I have not been able to create a substantial depth to Shin's character except for the fact that he's an agent working for Indeco, so I decided to make Chapter 11 explain the trivial things about him (such as his attitude and thoughts on different things). This Chapter somehow allows us to glimpse what kind of life Shin had been through and what kind of person he really is.

We also see some inner struggles between his duty and his awakening curiosity towards Miharu. We will see more of that in the future chapters. For now, we'll start a bit slow... :)

Now for the replies...

Ah, yes... The ex-boyfriend has finally been confirmed. Does he really love her or does he not? Is it for revenge? Actually, I'm having mixed emotions about Ryou's character. He's portrayed as smart and conniving... I'm tempted to make him a bad guy but he would be such a waste since I think he's hot. haha

"I have to admit I didn't see the "twin brother " coming and thinking now about Ryous' and his father conversation it makes me thinkmaybe she did something too?! Like maybe the father thinks she "killed" him (the twin brother) since they were best friends and maybe he didn't like that ,but quite a strange relationship here ,could it have been a love triangle?I mean here are 2 brothers :one has a best friends which is the other' girlfriend ...hmm...."
-- Tell you what, here's a big hint. The answer has been very obvious right from the start. Why would Ryou's Father badly want Miharu out of Kairan? Think. Miharu is the daughter of the Prime Minister. Ryou's Father is the leader of a shady underground organization. What happens when the daughter of the Prime Minister finds out about their shady organization? See where I was getting at? That's one of the major reasons why Ryou's Father want her out of Kairan. And I can assure you of one thing, this isn't the first time that Ryou's Father tried to intervene between Ryou and Miharu.
""shipments"what could they be?guns?or something else?Is it really a secret agency ?And are they ,maybe.working for Azreal?or are they collaborating with Shin's agency?"
-- I believe you have figured out the answer to the mystery behind Kairan Academy... You just have to figure out which among your guesses is the correct one. :)
"I'm guessing maybe the "blood hands" have something to do with Ryou's twin brothers' death ...?"
--That will be revealed in the future chapters... :)
"about Saitou and his an important bussiness mans' son ... and bodyguards?hm....Also you said he wanted to learn how to fight maybe because he was bullied but if he was bullied because he was a nerd then why would he come to a school where he would be more bullied ?"
-- Right from the start, Saitou had been honest. He personally stated his reason why he came to Kairan, right? He wanted to be strong. And he wanted the strongest fighter (Akira) in Kairan to teach him how to fight. Maybe because he got tired of being bullied... :)

--The suspense makes this chase enjoyable, doesn't it?
Anyhow, I hope this Chapter revealed more for you... :)

--Haha I'm not sure about the drama part... This is a bit angsty if you ask me. And it will be bloody in the future... :)

--Hah! I'm not the only one wearing glasses! :) That's good to hear! I've been wearing glasses since first year in high school. Really bad eyesight now... (>.<) I'm from the Visayas actually, not from Manila. I go to West Visayas State University and I'm taking a major in Political Science. (Hence the in depth explanation of Japan's Article 9 and the boring narration of World War II). I sound like a geek, don't I? haha It's okay. I'm equally curious about a fellow Filipino like you. Where are you from? And you're entering College right? Which university did you choose? :) As for your deductions, well, it's likely possible that Miharu isn't the daughter of the Prime Minister... But whose? haha x^Turtle^x:
Glad you liked it. I've added you to the PM List... Thank you for reading TCI! :)

Pizza-flavored icecream??? Where? haha I don't knw where you heard that but nope, we don't have pizza-flavored icecream... Well, none that I know of... :)

"twin!? is that where the super bikes started from?
and ryou plans to win her back?! looking forward to how that's gonna go!
but his dad is out to get her, isn't he?
and can't wait to find out more about the school and the "students" there
u can't seem to trust anyone now can you?"
-- Yes, that's where the super bikes came from. You'd have to wonder why Miharu has two super bikes, right? Who was the original owner of Falcon? keke Now, does everything make a little more sense? Basically, that's the point: Not being able to trust anyone. What would you do if you were Miharu? :)


If you guys are curious about Conficker C as mentioned in the Chapter, please do read on and be enlightened about something very techy... I bet this would be a useful trivia information for everyone.

On this Chapter, the worm virus known as Conficker C was also mentioned. Now, for those of you who might be curious about Conficker C, it's actually a real worm virus which erupts during April Fool's Day. It's actually one of the most, it not the most destructive and damaging worm virus to date.

Now, what does Conficker C really do? Well, first it enters the PC of an unsuspecting victim. And then, it begins sending private data from the victim computer to its HQ (Head Quatrters). What makes Conficker C unique is that it covers its tracks by using multiple URLs to communicate back to its HQ.

During the first release of Conficker C in 2008, it was able to use 250 URLs at most to communicate with its HQ. However, now that it's on its third variant, the worm has grown more complicated and powerful.

What else can it do? Well, Conficker C can take over a computer and have it remotely controlled by a master computer across the globe. When the worm takes over the victim computer, anything is possible. It can steal personal information, wipe hard drives or simply flood your computer with unwanted (annoying) malwares pop-ups, extortion-like come-ons which are designed to sell you phony security softwares, and much more...

haha Now, you guys think I'm a geek, do you?
Well, I tend to read a lot of stuff and I preferred to be informed about different things.

To everyone, thank you for reading
The Crimson Insignia!
Hope you guys enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy writing it!

A Peek Through the Past

The Crimson Insignia Chapter 10

More has been revealed about the real deal behind Kairan. Ryou's Father seemed to be involve in a bigger organization which lies beneath Kairan's deceptive exterior. And we also learn that Kazama Reiko seemed to be Ryou's eyes inside his Father's shady organization.

Of course, let's not forget that much has been revealed about Miharu and Ryou's past relationship. And surprsingly, Ryou had a twin brother~ You didn't see that one coming, did you? kekeke

Anyhow, the identity of the prankster hasn't been revealed yet. *winks* I'll leave that on the future chapters.

Here are the replies everyone. For the replies, I've italicized the guesses which could be a possible twist to the story. I hope this makes the chase more exciting! =)

"He seem kinda dorky cute lol I hope they find the person that are doing those stupid pranks soon, I'm guessing it's that new girl that Miharu just made friend with, ahh I don't know!!"
-- I've always held a soft spot for Saitou Kenta... Now you know why! He's adorable, isn't he? Ehh? Now, the suspicion goes to Akimoto Asuka? Hmmm...

"i wonder who is doing this to her...and why..??
maybe it is the guy that saved her...he could be the
one after her and the way he is could just be an act..."
-- Could be. Anything is possible after all. =)
".the only the only thing that
is coming to my head it that some of them are like
trained to kill...or trained in one specific area..but
-- Wow... You seem to get the general gist of my story! haha So, I'm not completely incomprehensible at all. Well, anyway, as I've said, you seem to get the general gist. But not entirely. Your guess is close enough... *winks*

"i wonder what this person has up their sleeve?
and how did ryou find them?"
-- I believe that the reason why Ryou was there was explained in Chapter 10. As for the reason behind the pranks, well, I'll reveal things little by little.
"and how come it's always that she gets "attacked" when shin isn't there?"
-- Well, if you recall, Shin couldn't go with Miharu to the Girls' Comfort Room for obvious reasons. Also, during detention, Shin had a different assignment than hers. Maybe it's coincidental. Maybe not... Who knows? kekeke

"1.You're once again taking sides with the "nerds" ...I wonder what you're really planning ...
What if those 2 know each other,meaning Asuka and Kenta....I'mjust saying...
About his (Kentas') conversation with "the other person"on the phone ,he said"he can handle it himself" ,I wonder who can help him out ,can it be a brother that I;m guessing he's something like a deliquent ,which could explain whyI he wants to learn how to fight .Like in the familiy he's the youngest and smartest and he has maybe an older brother that's the opposite and maybe their father is an important person..."
-- I am a nerd... Well, I wear glasses so I seem like a nerd. haha That maybe one of the reasons why I take sides with th nerds. But joking aside, well, there are a lot of possible persons who could help Kenta out. Like maybe he's actually the son of an influential business man and he has bodyguards at home? Wait. Ignore that. I'm trying to confuse you. XD As for the part whether Kenta knows Asuka? Don't think so... kekeke From Kenta's background information as one of the students from a top Academy (Kyotei), I don't think Kenta seems like a delinquent. As for the reason why he wants to learn how to might. Well, maybe because he had always been bullied? It could possible since hes a nerd, right?
"are you sure it was right you wrote Shin?If yes ,I'm even more confused,because from what you said it means they know each other so ,Shin might be her brother maybe ...??But he doesn't remember her and she neither ??and if so,what could make themforget each other to the point of not being able to recognize?"
-- Sorry, it should Ryou there. haha My mistake!
"more than just an academy ...and Ryou knows and the other don't?maybe because of his fathers' job?
What could Kairan be?A secret agency,that trains agents like Shin?and only girls were taught archery?"
-- Close enough... *winks*

"I guess Hara aka shin is the guy she will love. her brother uhm.... i dont know... and i think saitou is the guy who wants to kill her"
--Why thank you~ I'm flattered. Why do you guys always suspect Saitou Kenta? He's such an adorable nerd! =)

"Ha, the nerds are really suspicious.
They tend to get a little to attached to many subjects. *stereotype*"
-- O_o? Should I be suspected too since I wear glasses and I seem nerdy? haha Just joking.
"Now that you mentioned it somewhere, I'm having doubts that Miharu is the daughter of the Prime Minister."
And someone in this story is someone's child (other than Miharu) 0.0"
-- That could be a possible view of things. =)

"so i think its the nerd girl still !
cos she was there and yeah
and she doesnt like the bully girl > reiko.. yay i remember her name
so she accused the bully girl
right right?
the nerds are being suspected cos their suspicious ! x)"
-- A possibility! hehe Good for you for remembering Reiko! Well, as for Asuka not liking Reiko... Who ever liked bullies? Especially if you're the one they're bullying, right? =)

"im really curious why is KAiran different... and why are they training girls in archery? is that extra curricular activity? and why is ryou so alarmed with everything. is his dad behind this?"
-- I believe your questions have been partly answered by the recent update (Chapter 10). =)
"did you send pm... i didn't get one any way its ok"
-- I sent everyone a PM. Can you please check it your inbox was full or not... Sometimes, PMs don't get through because the recepient's inbox is full. =)

-- Gad you liked my story. I've added you to the PM List. =)

"SO what I am thinking is that the nerd boy
is really her brother and the nerd girl really
is a super secret spy for Ryou's father or
Azrael something like that you know? If she
is a super secret spy for Ryou's father than maybe
she is somehow indebted to him and is forced to do
all these things when she doesn't really want to or maybe
she does want to and it's just she has a crush on Ryou or
one of the other boys."
-- a super secret spy? haha Your comment is really an entertaining read! I see you've come to somehow... get close enough to my twists. *winks*
"The girl at the end I think she is one of
Azrael's henchwomen like bait or a scpaegoat you know or is
just some innocent girl that got jumbled up into the mess."
--I believe that your last guess was proven to be wrong by this recent update (Chapter 10). Reiko turned out to be the super secret spy working for Ryou's Father who served as Ryou's eyes inside his Father's vast organization. =) By the way, glad you're feeling better already!

Everyone, thank you so much for the comments and wild guesses!
I've really enjoyed reading everyone's opinion!
Thank you so much for joining the chase!

Revival of Ignominy


After roughly over a month of no updates, I finally updated two chapter for my fanfic entitled Ignominy. Shall I say that this was due to the fact that I could not find any motivation to write for this story?

The truth is, I've already planned the sequence of events for this story of mine. I was able to plan out the events through each chapter. The thing that I didn't plan for this story... was my sudden lack of motivation. Added with the fact that I had been juggling three other fics apart from this one.

However, I've decided to start updating again and hopefully, finish this before I conclude my other story entitled, "Capturing the Casanova", so that I can fully concentrate on "The Crimson Insignia".
