I'd be interested in reading what you've written. I don't know much about Cardcaptor Sakura, but it sounds interesting.
Card Captor Sakura is a Shojo manga about a magic girl that collects all the cards of the Clow- a set of cards, each with a different ability so she can be the master of the Clow. Each card has a personality that she has to win over. It's a beautiful series. She has different outfits every time she goes after a card It's a VERY Clamp manga... if you've read any Clamp titles. I believe XXXholic tags on after Card Captor Sakura I like season two best with Erol in it. It is alot more dangerous, and Everyone is at their final forms I like that ^^
xxxHolic is pretty good. I'm on on volume 2 of the manga, but it's pretty good so far. I'm really liking Tsubasa, which is an alternate universe of Cardcaptor Sakura. Sakura is now the Princess of Clow, her father being Clow Reed (the one who created the Clow Cards in the other universe). In this universe, however, the cards never existed. Sakura loses all of her memories, which are scattered throughout various worlds. Yukito sends Sakura and Syauron (I can't spell his name for the life of me, but it's pronounced Shou-Ron or something like that) to see the Dimensional Witch, who is one of the main characters of xxxHolic. That's right; Tsubasa and xxxHolic overlap. In fact, it overlaps with many other Clamp properties. There are tons of nods to Clamp's other works. The original Cardcaptor Sakura universe is also mentioned. It's really amazing in my opinion.
As for my Cardcaptor Sakura fan fic; well, it needs a lot of work and tweaking, and I'm not comfortable putting it online just yet. I re-read it recently and just stared at the screen in disbelief going, "did I actually write this?"
To give you an idea of what Cardcaptor Sakura is all about, check out theopening
for the dub. Yes, I know, the dub sucks. But who wants to watch a japanese opening? It does a good job of establishing the basic plot. More or less. Also, one thing to keep in mind: The anime and the manga are completely different. The manga has only around 20 or so Clow Cards. The anime has about 52. The anime also adds a character that was not present or even mentioned in the manga, and the series ends completely differently. I'm partial to the manga because it's a bit on the uncut side (Yukito and Toya are in love! They're both guys, btw). In any event, once I get around to fixing my Cardcaptor Sakura fan-fic, I may post part of it here for everyone to enjoy.
Here's something I wrote as an assignment in freshman year of high school. It's a single paragraph. The assignment was to write various different paragraphs for different moods and themes (I think. it was so long ago now...
) This one paragraph has now transformed into something so much larger that I can't divulge any more details about it. I hope to someday refine, perfect and eventually publish this idea, whether it's as a book, a game or something else entirely. But the first paragraph should be a nice treat for everyone...As I ran frantically to reach the safety of the shack, I could tell that the beast was after me. It was gaining speed as it ran, like a juggernaut. The more momentum it gained, the more unstoppable it became. I knew that it could sense my fear, that it could smell the blood coursing through my veins. It only wanted to satisfy its hunger. That's all it wanted. It's all these creatures ever wanted. Every creature I encountered since that fateful day in the Egyptian tomb sent monsters and mummies and all sorts of mythical beings after me. My job was to capture them, tame them. Hide them within their own world. They escaped from their own existence thousands of years ago. But I wondered how I got this job. Why me? I'm terrified of monsters. They scare me half to death. Sometimes to death. My body has improved in physical strength, so even if I was attacked and ripped limb from limb, I would still survive. I can't figure it out, but it still scares me that I face these creatures all the time. My face was drenched with sweat and my feet were beginning to tire. I tripped and fell, hitting the ground with a loud thump. As I sat there, the monster came closer and closer, my face beginning to sweat so much that I started acting as a sponge. I thrust my hands out with my eyes closed. I was waiting to see what would happen. Would I be killed in this instant, or would I be left to survive on my own in this deserted rain forest?
It's needs some refinement, but it's a nice treat for everyone I figure. And I haven't posted any of my writing on these forums in years. So, what does everyone think?
