Three Ripped Photographs

"Is Morality your basis of Right and Wrong?
Tch... I pity you...
You will never know happiness..."

Presenting my new original fiction story!

And here I was, rambling about how my writing muses weren't cooperative. Well, I was telling the truth. I kept asking them to think of something I could write for my unfinished stories but the only idea they've given me, was the idea of this story: Thee Ripped Photographs.

Truth is, I had this idea itching me to write it since last year. But I was busy handling lots of stuff so I restrained myself from writing this one up to now. Somehow, I couldn't resist the itch anymore so I just had to write this one...

Anyway, this is actually the story I'm planning to allow my Real Life Love to read. Simply because he's never read any of my write ups, except maybe poems. After almost a year and a half of being together, I've confessed to him that I love writing and that I actually write, but I've never once allowed him to read any of my written stories. NEVER as in like Nada...

He also doesn't know that I maintain a Writer's Blog.

But since I want to be more open to him, I've decided to write this story and allow him to read it once I finish it. I'm thinking about printing it and handing it to him at school. He was never the type to read but still, I want him to be closer to 'my world' of words and fiction so I'll try.

At least I'm trying, right?

Now... On to the story...

Three Ripped Photograph is written in first POV...
It's a complex story if you ask me. Everything wouldn't make any sense until you get to the end of the story where everything would be given light. This is sort of... a slice of lice original story which deals with the 'cruel' part of life.

I would say it's a bit dramatic with the occasional amusing wit and sarcasm thrown at the sides. I'm attempting an eye-opener kind of story so yeah... I don't think the readers of Capturing the Casanova would like this one though... It's too serious and almost no fluff at all.

Oh, and yeah, this will be posted on Soompi Forums alone.

Well, I can only hope for the best. :)

I Can Google Myself!!


Okay. So, I was busy researching for my assignment in Comparative Politics and in Constitution and Civil Rights when I suddenly got bored. I remembered a reader from, who told me that my story entitled Capturing the Casanova can be goodled. hehe I tried that first and then... *shing!*... My story appeared before my very eyes! XD It linked into Soompi, Winglin, and this blog. haha

Then, I thought, why not google myself? haha Then, I indulged myself in a kind of vanity which I think, is the only vanity I can afford to indulge myself. haha

I googled my pseudonym as in Shattered Teardrops. muhaha
And what do you know? I can find myself! LOL. Google actually displayed my DA account, my blogspot account, my Xanga account, my Soompi account and even my Winglin page! XD

Vain much?

Not really... hehe I think this simply means that the world wide web knows of my existence. And I feel great! LOL. Gosh... I'm cracking myself up! XD

Anyway, aside from the narcissictic ramblings, I'm here to tell everyone of the ideas that are currently playing inside my mind. Truth is, I'm a little confused whether to write a SoEul sequel or not. I have this idea for the sequel of CTC but I'm still thinking about it.

On the other hand, I also have this idea to create a fanfic featuring Song Woo Bin and Ha Jae Kyung. :) I think those two deserve some more loving. They're pretty crack up characters if you ask me. hehe

But then, I am also reminded of the fact that my writing muses aren't being nice to me yet. I think they got exhausted with the excessive writing these past few months. And that I still have to unfinished stories to finish (Ignominy and The Crimson Insignia). -.-

Gosh... What am I to do??? Tsk, tsk... I better get my writing muses to be nice to me soon. My stories are all hanging in mid-air...

I Feel... Pressured?

Honestly? Yes, a little.

Ever since I've finished my SoEul fanfic entitled Capturing the Casanova and posted it on Winglin, Soompi, The Archive and, I have received multiple PMs, comments and reviews about my grammar, the fluidity of my story, my creativity, my English, yada-yada-yada... And I'm really thankful... Truthfully, I feel very happy that a lot of readers appreciate the way I write and the ideas that come out in my story.

BUT... Okay, there's that big BUT.

I've also received comments telling me to write another SoEul fanfic. The truth is, I have a third SoEul fanfic apart from the one-shot I made and CTC. It's entitled "The Art of Lip-Locking" and is posted only at The Archive.

Don't get me wrong. It's not like I'm hiding this fanfic that's why I'm not posting it on other sites just like CTC. It's just that I've written this fanfic out of pure fun and... erm... Well, I wouldn't call it perverseness. I'd rather call it... Sensuality. Yes, that's the term. hehe

The Art of Lip-Locking is actually an NC-17 fanfic, that means its has smut and lemony scenes which are not suitable for young readers. Hence, I'm scared to post it on Soompi and I'm a little doubtful whether I should post it on Winglin and Maybe I'll do that when I get half-way through the story. But definitely not right now.

Anyway, that's not why I feel being pressured. The truth is, I feel pressured because many of my readers tell me that I should write MORE SoEul fic or rather ANOTHER SoEul fanfic. This is what pressures me the most because even though I love the SoEul pairing, I'm scared to be categorized as an Author who merely excels in writing fanfics for SoEul.

Personally, I'm half-way through SoEul. What I meant is, I feel like I've done what I could do with the pairing. And that I should move on and create another story with different characters. Again, I don't mean that I no longer ship SoEul. I'm still a true blue SoEul Shipper. I'm still a fan. But as a writer, I feel like I should let them go and create different characters apart from SoEul.

And this pressure... I think it's caused by being torn between what the writer in me wants and what the readers want me to write. I want to create my own characters apart from SoEul. But the readers want me to write more SoEul.


As of now, I haven't updated any of my other on-going fics. I'm still busy with school. Heck, who the hell crams up Constitution and Civil Rights with Political Theories and Argumentation and Debate? Not to mention, Research on Political Science? What the hell were they thinking cramming up all the major subjects in one sem? Honestly! I feel like... ugh... I am so dead.

That's it for now...
Will update if there are new developments...

Capturing the Casanova coming to a close...

With every start comes an inevitable end...

And for my story entitled Capturing the Casanova, the end has come. This story is finally coming to a close as I decided to release its long-awaited last chapter and Epilogue.

This is one of the stories I've enjoyed writing very much. It was fun imagining Yi Jung and Ga Eul being caught up in various situations that only made them closer in the end.

I loved writing about the side characters as well. There's Kim Jae Joong, Yi Jung's cousin and former bestfriend who served as the cupid between the Casanova and the Country Bumpkin, who's also my husband. There's also Choi Seung Hyun, Ga Eul's first love and protector, who's my personal slave. And of course, Grandma Haejin, who's a big spunky SoEul shipper! haha

I'd like to thank everyone who took time to read and comment on my story. Yes, even silent readers. As for the comments, each comment really gave me strength and determination to finish this story, especially during times when my writing muses aren't being cooperative with me.

I'd like to thank first and foremost, the Almighty God, for allowing me to create such a colorful fanfiction. I'd like to thank my parents for financial support. LOL. I'd like to thank my wonderful readers! YOU GUYS ROCK! hehe Although it's a bit late, I'd like to thank the PDs of Boys Before Flowers for producing the korean remake. Thank you for giving us So Yi Jung and Chu Ga Eul.

As a parting gift, I'm giving everyone a chance to have a copy of Capturing the Casanova through a PDF copy available for download at Mediafire.
