Since I pretty much lost all my steam for Eidolon (a shocking lack of reader interaction will pretty much kill anyone's desire to work hard on a project, no matter how much they themselves like it...but I guess that result could only be expected for original works...people just don't really hitch their trailers to them that easily when they have to wait forever for updates)...and since I also happened to have become somewhat intensely obsessed with YoI...I'm wondering.
Doujin? Yes? No? I've been posting a fic over on fanfic.net and it's been getting a substantial amount of positive commentary. It's up at 35 chapters now and still going. It's kind of like my old Hellsing doujin, where I picked up the story after the original TV Series ended, and created my own story based on what limited info I had about the manga at the time. In this case, there's basically no info about season 2 for Yuri on Ice but I can imagine quite a lot of possibilities.
If it seems like there's enough interest, I may go ahead with this project. I'm a sucker for attention so this may just be the kind of pick-me-up I need after the slump of the last 7 months. People really got excited over the Redux, so I can only imagine how much MORE excited people would get for a fully rated M* YoI story...especially since it's not JUST about the reason why it's rated M... I'm really kind of taking it seriously XD
*I have a huge respect for the source material, and folks who know my writing style know I try to stay close to the spirit of said source material. I don't draw porn. I don't do degrading or humiliating things to characters. I try to keep everyone as in-character as humanly possible. The M rating is basically just because, while I would cover such topics, I wouldn't be letting some television network in Japan tell me what my censors for distribution are. There would be no kisses obscured by anyone's arm. That sort of thing...plus more. Way more xD But it will be extremely tasteful and classy. I don't like it when I see Viktuuri art that's gratuitous or over the top. I feel like is disrespects the mutuality and equality in their relationship and dismisses how both characters actually feel.
