Well, today was rather productive! I nearly doubled the amount of material in Chapter 2, doing the first major battle of the story. Keeping in mind that this is still a rough draft, I expect this chapter to explode! Not to mention, I've still got another third of the chapter to write. I guess it's time to start thinking seriously about chapter three. :)
I posted a link to my first chapter at the Ah My Goddess site The Goddess Project. I'm hoping that some of the 'experts' there will review what I've got so far and give me some constructive critisim. I've learned by reading on that forum, that most of them tend not to like self inserts, and if you stay in character, generally following the story arc, things should be alright. Time will tell, hopefully tomorrow I'll have some feed back.
In other news, I think three new members joined my site today! :) Well, one of them was a returning fan back from the Tenchi Universe days of the forum. He posted a fiction, that I found quite interesting, a Tenchi / Tsunami fiction. I must admit, it's hard to think of that relationship, considering that Tsunami still embodies Sasami (in the fiction, she's already 12) but I don't think I could ever see her a day over eight from the series. Needless to say, I think the author did a good job, even though the story is shorter than I like (only one chapter), but still, I'm eager to see perhaps a continuation story to see how the relationship fleshes out.
I'm still plugging away at the Pets mod I recently installed on my site. Mostly right now, I'm just tweaking the code, making some things more logical, and usable too. Maybe next week when I have a good solid chunk of time, I'll update the food items for specific characters (easy enough to do) and I'll add some more battle functionality. I'm really not looking forward to writing the cooking part of the code, since it's so complicated, but, I think in the end it will be worth it.
Oh, speaking of coding. I ran into a post on the Goddess Project forums about members there wanting a AMG card game. Considering that once upon a time, I wrote a simple Deck of Many Things deck, this shouldn't be too difficult. Especially if other people more familiar with the kinds of rules that would need to be put in place, and maybe if others could do the art work for the cards, it would turn out really nifty. The forum is using IP Boards, which I'm not familar with, so I may just write it as a sepearte webpage application (that way, if I able to, I can also support it on my site, which is powered by SMF. I don't know, I'll wait to see if anybody responds to my post there.
