Transcending Memories:A Bond Unsealed-Chapter 13
A Yu-Gi-Oh Fan-fiction

-----------------------
Author's Note (January 2018): Hello again everyone! How are you? I hope you're all doing well! :) (Smile) Though it's been a LONG time again, but here I amn, trying to power on through with this story! It's never easy, but it is something that I want to see through to the end, no matter how long it takes! I must apologize for my particularly long absence, however, but sadly 2017 was not a pleasant year... Aside from the normal stresses of life such as work, and relationships, there was a tragic death in my family that greatly affected me and my loved ones for several months. Coupled with a personal struggle as well, there were times where I wouldn't even be able to think about this story of mine, as beloved as it is. I am hoping however, that with the release of this chapter, I'll be able to update at least a little more frequently, but I suppose only time will tell....

------------------------------------

Author's Note (January 2017) : Hello again everyone! I just wanted to add a short message here, as size limitations were once again an issue, forcing me to divide up my chapter 12 into two parts, much like I did with some of my previous chapters.  If you haven't already, please read the first part, Chapter 12a here:
-----------------------------
                *Teana, please be safe!* Yami prayed, inwardly, as he scoured the deserted streets.
        With his mind racing in desperation, the young prince scanned every rounded corner, each passing alleyway! Running faster and faster, he thought of nothing but reaching the young woman; hurrying in the direction of her blood curdling scream!
        And yet, the anticipation of finding Teana inadvertently trig

Author's Note (January 2017) : Hello again everyone! How are you? Are you doing well? I sure hope that you are! :) Well, here I am again! It's been quite some time, hasn't it? My goodness! I truly must apologize for that... But alas, as a whole, 2016 was not a year that I will look back on, fondly. :( Mostly this was due to a number of issues in my personal life, which I won't get into here. And yet, with the start of 2017, I hope that I will not ONLY be able to devote more time to this beloved story of mine, but that I can also find my way back to many of the things I love, such as art and anime. Here's hoping at least! And hey! With the Yu-Gi-Oh movie (the English version anyway) premiering in theaters right now, I'd say that things certainly are looking up! I'm hoping that it'll prove to be an inspiration to me in regards to this work as I could use some new material to sink my teeth into! :) I also hope that you

****I just wanted to add a small edit! :)  Since I mentioned the anime "Free!" and how my friend :iconsamcybercat: introduced me to the series, I thought I'd give a little shout out to her and her written works! :)  She has her own DA site of course, but you can also find newer stories on the site "Archive of Our Own" as seen here:   archiveofourown.org/users/SamC….  I've enjoyed her Yu-Gi-Oh related works in the past, and I'm looking forward to checking out some of her Free! stories soon myself!  If you're a fan of any of the series that she pens for, be sure to check them out! You won't be disappointed! :D

Hello everyone!

How are you? I hope that you're doing well! It's been a long time hasn't it? :wow:  Much too long... :ashamed:  I apologize for being away, but alas, real life has been hectic as of late. :phew:  Work continues to be stressful at times, and I fear that it'll become even more chaotic in the near future.... ><  Aside from that, I've been helping my in-laws, who are about to move into a new home.  I've continued to try to help my husband :iconpyropainter: with his endeavors, and I suppose our biggest challenge is right around the corner....

I know I've briefly spoken about my husband and I trying to have a family, actually for quite some time now...  But unfortunately that has yet to come to pass. :(  And so, we decided to bite the bullet, and move forward with medical assistance.  We tried this, to a lesser extent, last summer.  But again, to no avail.  But this time, we're ready to jump right in!  It's all or nothing!  The downside of it all, is that the medications and especially the related procedures are VERY expensive....  Because of that, it was rather difficult to acquire the funds... :(  But I think we're just about ready to begin, maybe as early as next week even! :wow:  I'm feeling a lot of different things in regards to it though...  Excited, anxious, a little scared, and also a little worried that I'll be disappointed yet again; after so many disappointments so far. :(  But I'm going to try to be as optimistic as I can be, and hopefully in the coming months, I'll have some good news to share! :)  Please please *please* wish us luck everyone! Thank you so so much! :thanks: :happycry:

As I said in my last journal, things have stabilized a bit with my family, especially after the tragedies of last year.  :( It was a trying time, and though there's still sadness, even now, I think it brought us a little bit closer in a way....  At least I'd like to think so....  Once more, I thank you all for your encouragement and your incredibly kind words during that time.  I know I said it before, but it really did mean a lot to me.  I still love Deviantart, even if I'm not as active as I once was, and I still consider many of you wonderful friends! No matter what, I hope you never doubt that! :)

In recent weeks, I have been making more of an effort to frequent the site.  I was soooooooo incredibly behind on messages though! :ashamed: I still have some catching up to do, even now, but I am FINALLY starting to get caught up!  About time, huh?  :)  And again, I'll try to be around some more if I can be.  I really don't want to lose touch with all of you, or get as backlogged as I did! ^^;

In terms of my own creative process, it seems that I've slowed down quite a bit, especially in the last several months, and years even...  It's a shame, but I find that I just don't have as much time as I used to.  Admittedly the job I had back in 2015, which I had for over a decade, allowed me much *much* more time to work on art!  And to be fair, that was also before I was married! ^^;  Now I find that I really need to consider where to go from here.... 

Truth be told, the older I get the more discouraged I become...  I guess I can say that when I was younger, I always thought that I'd be able to do *something* more with my artwork, something that would give me a sense of accomplishment.  But then I wanted to do art work for fun too, artwork that I could share with all of you! Artwork in which I could express my love for things like Sailor Moon, or Yu-Gi-Oh or anything else that left a little hand print on my heart.  :)  I found that I flip flopped quite a bit on that, and time continued to pass me by....  Now I wonder if I ever will do more with my work, or if I should just accept that I won't, and do art solely for enjoyment.  Not that I'm saying that's a bad thing or anything!  Please don't misunderstand me! I guess I just put a lot of expectation on myself, and I think back to when I was in art school, and my teachers were SO sure that I was going to be some famous artist or what not....  Maybe I just didn't have the drive.  I don't know....  It's something I've been thinking about a lot lately, I suppose.  Especially when I see my husband still trying to pursue art professionally.  I guess at the end of the day, I was never able to find my niche, something I REALLY wanted to do; a dream that I had to accomplish no matter what.... 

I know they say it's never too late, but maybe I am just suppose to do art for enjoyment and for sharing.  I always did love discussing my works with all of you, and attending conventions, though I wonder if I'd be considered too old for that now....  I wasn't able to attend any events in recent years either, due to rejection and not having a new series of works to display.  It was pretty discouraging.... :(  <SIGH>....  Sorry to go on everyone.  I guess this is one of the reasons I've been slow in creating lately.  I've always known that I loved doing fan art and related works, but in truth sometimes I feel guilty doing it, like I'm letting people down by not doing more.  Sometimes I try to motivate myself.  I look at art tutorials on occasion (a little shout out to Proko, on youtube, which teaches a lot about art www.youtube.com/user/ProkoTV) I tried taking a local art class to try to better my technique (but to no avail) and I even tried taking some online art classes on sites like www.udemy.com/. I guess I was at least looking for a way to get really excited about art again.  Find some kind of new level, or have an epiphany that would make me want to draw non-stop again!  Whether it was fan art or not. Maybe I should just go with the flow and just draw what I want to draw... Or maybe I'll have a little girl or boy someday and they'll want to be an artist themselves.  Heh, of course I won't force them to, but if that is something that interests them, maybe I can help them build the confidence that I never had growing up... Who knows?

Anyways, anyways!  I do still have some upcoming works that I hope to do, even if they are just for fun! :)  I'll keep mum about a few of them, but I hope to get on the ball really soon! Oh! I will saw that I've sampled some new anime in recent months that I've enjoyed!  I began watching Ancient Magus Bride, which I still need to finish, I LOVED the film "Your Name," I started "Your Lie in April," a little while ago, and most recently, I watched the first two seasons of "Free!" which was recommended by my good friend, :iconsamcybercat:.  I have to say! I didn't expect to enjoy that series so much, but it was definitely heart warming and the animation quality was just beautiful! Wow! I only have good things to say about it, all the way down to the gorgeous soundtrack! :w00t: I know a lot of people know it as the "swimming" anime, but really, it was more about the bonds of friendship, and following your dreams.  It may seem cliche, but how it was presented made my heart melt a little, which hasn't happened in a long long time....  If you haven't seen it, check it out!  Surely there's a lot of fan service, with the men's defined muscle tone, but even if the art hadn't been as good, the story was well worth it, I'd say! Especially in season 2! :)  It seems like I lucked out with my timing, since season 3 premieres tomorrow (7/11/18)! :airborne: I'll be looking forward to it for sure! :D :D :D

On a positive note, I HAVE continued to work on my fan-fiction, Transcending Memories: A Bond Unsealed.  Currently I'm about 5-6 pages into Chapter 14.  I'm a little nervous about this one though as I got a bit ambitious with this installment.  It's continued down it's dark path, and in a sense, it'll be an accumulation of many things that have come before.  Most of all, it's a turning point for Teana especially.  In writing it though, I did notice that my writing style has changed over the years, so I've actually started to tweak a few of my earlier installments, particularly 1-3 at this point.  It was nothing TOO major, as ironically the direction I'm going in now, originally started out as a simple revision; which strayed FAR from the original!  But now, I find that I'm relatively satisfied with the events of previous chapters, unlike before.  It's just a matter of tightening up some of the writing (though I can still be wordy, I was MUCH wordier in the past! ^^;) and trying to make the story a bit more unified.  I guess that's the issue when there's large gaps between chapters, but I'll continue to do my best!!  It may only be a fan-fiction, but I've poured a lot of my heart into this work and that is something I want to see through the end, even if it's just for a small sense of accomplishment.  That and for anyone who may still be with me, down the road. :)  Please know that I appreciate the patience, feedback and encouragement!  I saw this wholeheartedly! It means everything to me! :thanks:

Transcending Memories: A Bond Unsealed- Chapter 1
A Yu-Gi-Oh Fan-fiction
------------------------------------

Author’s Note (April 2010):  Wow...  It’s hard to believe that I started this fan-fiction almost 6 years ago.  So much time has passed, and yet at the same time it feels as if it were only yesterday since I created this work.  Even though I put it away for a while, as I focused on other things in my life, my love for this story never faltered.  And I’m quite sure that it will always be special to me, no matter what... 
     In recent months, I found myself rediscovering the intensity of the love that I felt for the Yu-Gi-Oh anime and manga series, and as a result I was compelled to revisit this fan-fiction, rework it, and maybe even attempt to complete it this time around!  It’ll be a daunting task, especially given the extent of what I would like to rewrite before I continue
Transcending Memories: A Bond Unsealed- Chapter 2
A Yu-Gi-Oh Fan-fiction
---------------------------------

Author’s Note (April 2010): Hello again, everyone! I hope that you’re all doing well! :) I suppose there isn’t too much for me to say in this brief commentary, at least in comparison to what I addressed in my first chapter. Given that both chapters 1 and 2 were simply introductory works, they were virtually unchanged from their previous versions, with the exception of grammatical changes. Still, given that I have many more chapters that I need to revise, I also thought that the addition of a current author’s note would be useful in a sense. That way, the reader will know which chapters have been rewritten, as opposed to my prior works. I imagined that it may be confusing to determine if a chapter was edited or not, so again, for this purpose, I will include an author’s note if the new version has, in fact, been completed.

Transcending Memories: A Bond Unsealed- Chapter 3
A Yu-Gi-Oh Fan-fiction
---------------------------------------

Author’s Note (April 2010): Ah, what fun I had revising this chapter! I suppose that I can say that Chapter 3 is where the story truly begins, and because of that, it was reworked considerably in comparison to the original. Firstly, I attempted to add some insight, and a bit of foreshadowing, to both Yami and Teana’s characters. And aside from detail and description, I found several grammatical errors in the previous version which I hope have been corrected in this one. Furthermore, given that this chapter was generally lighter, as opposed to the story’s overall darker tone, I simply decided to follow through with the prior events; while trying to amplify them in any way possible. Though what happened in the older version remains intact, I like to believe that there is a bit more life to this one, or perhaps a certain kind of
Transcending Memories: A Bond Unsealed-Chapter 4a
A Yu-Gi-Oh Fan-fiction
--------------------------------------

Author’s Note (October 2010): As of this writing, I have only managed to update chapters 1 though 4 of this story, and even in comparison to Chapter 3, I found that Chapter 4 was changed rather drastically; so much so that certain events did not occur at all! This was done for several reasons. Firstly, I simply wanted to have more interaction between Teana and Yami during the early stages of their relationship; before things became complex, and potentially problematic. Having re-read my own work, I noticed that this had begun to occur as early as the original version of chapter 5; and without solid reasoning...  So instead, I wanted to see more of the playfulness and innocence in their beginning, which hopefully served to give it a bit more depth and meaning as well. Additionally, I also hoped that the new scenes would level the pacing

---------------------------------

Author's Note (May 2013):  Hello again everyone! How are you? I hope that you're doing well!  Though this was not the author's note that was *originally* included within my Chapter 4, it would seem that Deviantart has size limitations in regards to posting text files; at least if I'm utilizing the Sta.sh Writer options on this site, correctly....  As a result, I was forced to divide my Chapter 4 of my fan-fiction into two parts, given that it was much longer than my first 3 chapters combined!  For the first part of this chapter, please visit the following link: 

In any case, this may actually serve the telling of this tale, taking into account that the second half of the chapter had a very different feel and tone in comparison to the first half!  However, I

A Yu-Gi-Oh Fan-fiction
-------------------------------------

Author’s Note (March 2015): Hello again, everyone! How are you? I hope that you’re doing well! My goodness! It’s been QUITE a while, hasn't it? I truly and *sincerely* apologize for that... I honestly hadn't intended to be away for so long, but it would appear that instances in my life would quite often get in the way, as well as issues with my health especially, and of course other projects that I'm working on as well. It's because of my health, actually, that I'm now able to concentrate on this work to some degree. In a nutshell, I am currently recovering from a rather major surgical procedure! Given the severity of it (though I should be fine, I'm happy to say!) the healing process requires me to be a bit limited in my mobility, while also having plenty of best rest for the next several days! Though, truth be told, I was finding that to be a
Transcending Memories: A Bond Unsealed- Chapter 6
A Yu-Gi-Oh Fan-fiction
--------------------------------------

Author's Note (March 2015): Well here we are again! Can you believe it? It's certainly hard to, (even for me!) given that it's been forever since I have been able to work on this story of mine so consistently. As I mentioned in my previous chapter, particularly it's author's note, I am still recovering from a surgical procedure, and though I am still in need of bed rest, I wanted to make a genuine effort to progress with this piece, for the duration of that time. I am not certain HOW much more I will be able to write, but I suppose I won't know unless I try! Though it has been years and years since I began this work, it is still quite special to me, and if I am fully capable of doing so, I wish to pen all of the stories that have been locked within my mind for over a decade now. Please wish me luck everyone, as I'll try not
Transcending Memories: A Bond Unsealed- Chapter 7
A Yu-Gi-Oh Fan-fiction
---------------------------
Author’s Note (April 2015)
: Hello yet again everyone!  How are you? Are you doing well?  I sure hope that you are!  :)  It seems that I STILL have some creative steam left in me after all, so I'll continue to utilize in in any way possible for as long as possible!  It would also seem that the events from the previous chapter were much longer than I had intended, and I came to the decision to divide up what I ultimately hoped to accomplish with this chapter into two instead. 
Oh! And for those interested in canon, I made a slight reference to the "Man Eater Bug" which was the "Ka" that was extracted from the criminal in the last chapter. I thought it fitting to have it be a monster that fans would be familiar with, and it seemed like such a beast would most definitely take refuge in such a man, given his attitude and what not. 
 
As I mentioned in
Transcending Memories: A Bond Unsealed-Chapter 8a
A Yu-Gi-Oh Fan-fiction
-------------------------------------

Author’s Note (April 2015): Greetings once more everyone! :) I'm so happy to see you here again, and relatively soon after my last few installments of this work! Even now, I'm sure it's still pretty shocking for me to be working so consistently on this treasured work of mine, isn't it? At least, that's how I feel myself! But what can I say? Even if it has been several years, when I set out to do something, I really do try to complete it, no matter how long it may take... And this story means far too much to me to simply disregard it in the state that it is. I really don't know how long it will take me to complete it, but I hope to, one day..... Though if I have a say in the matter, it will be done sooner rather than later....
Well now! I certainly revealed quite a few of my plot elements in my last chapter, didn't I? If you can believe it, many of those concepts have been with me ever since I ha

Author's Note (April 2015): Hello again everyone!  This will be a short commentary, given that this chapter was originally just one.  However, much like Chapter 4, Deviantart seems to have size limitations on text files, so I was forced to divide up the chapter into two segments instead.  Please check out the first half here:
And of course, if you haven't already, please read the previous installments of this work and let me know what you think! I'm always very very happy to receive comments and critiques! I really am trying to give this story my absolute best, especially after so many years, so any support and encouragement, is truly *truly* appreciated! Thank you again! :thanks:

A Yu-Gi-Oh Fan-fiction
------------------------------------------

Author's Note (June 2015): Hello again everyone! How are you? Are you doing well? I sure hope that you are! Well then! It looks like I'm still moving along with this work, a little at a time! Did you enjoy the last chapter? I must say that I enjoyed writing it, though I did manage to hit a few snags here and there, in regards to research, dialogue, and any other obstacle that I may eventually encounter during my creative process. Speaking of which, I recently tweaked Teana's dream sequence in Chapter 8, just slightly, to tie more closely together with a later scene in this chapter. For anyone interested in continuity, I would suggest re-reading at least that scene again. :) Aside from that little bit, I do like to think that I am making good headway with this story of mine, and I hope against hope that you *are*, in fact, enjoying it, if you've made it this far and stuck with me after SO long!

And as always, I thank you very *very* much for your time, interest and consideration!  Please let me know what you think, as I always welcome both comments and critiques! Thank you again, as it really DOES mean a lot to me! :thanks: :thanks: :thanks:

                     “Well then, would you like me to show you?” Yami inquired.
                    “You can do that..? I mean, it's ok for you to do that? Right here? Right now?!”

Author's Note (December 2015): Hello once again everyone! How are you? Are you doing well? I sure hope that you are! :) Well, here I am again! It's been a while, hasn't it? I apologize for that... In the past several months, there certainly have been quite a few changes that have taken place. Mostly recently I managed to secure a new job; which due to the high demands of the work, has taken up a great deal of my time! I'm still learning the various processes of this new position however, and I hope that in time I'll be able to use my time more productively, for both work and the things that I love! Wish me luck everyone! Thank you so much! :)
In terms of the story itself, I'm finding that as I write this commentary, I'm not quite sure what to discuss this time around... Though I'm certain that as

Author's Note (May 2016): Hello again everyone! How are you? Are you doing well? I sure hope that you are! :) I hope you're enjoying the year so far, and that 2016 turns out to be memorable and eventful for all of you as a whole! I'm definitely hoping for the best, and that only great things are on the horizon! I'll cross my fingers anyhow. :)
 
So what can I say? Though life has kept me busy in recent months, with the start of yet another new job, (which has severely delayed both my art and writing) I was happy to at least finish my last chapter before the end of 2015; though admittedly, I didn't intend to end it where I did... Truth be told, which is probably evident by the huge gap between updates, I had been struggling with Chapter 10 for several months, mainly due to the fact that it needed a great deal of changes from a prior version that I'd written! With the end of chapter 9, I, in a se

Author's Note (January 2017) : Hello again everyone! How are you? Are you doing well? I sure hope that you are! :) Well, here I am again! It's been quite some time, hasn't it? My goodness! I truly must apologize for that... But alas, as a whole, 2016 was not a year that I will look back on, fondly. :( Mostly this was due to a number of issues in my personal life, which I won't get into here. And yet, with the start of 2017, I hope that I will not ONLY be able to devote more time to this beloved story of mine, but that I can also find my way back to many of the things I love, such as art and anime. Here's hoping at least! And hey! With the Yu-Gi-Oh movie (the English version anyway) premiering in theaters right now, I'd say that things certainly are looking up! I'm hoping that it'll prove to be an inspiration to me in regards to this work as I could use some new material to sink my teeth into! :) I also hope that you

Author's Note (January 2017) : Hello again everyone! I just wanted to add a short message here, as size limitations were once again an issue, forcing me to divide up my chapter 12 into two parts, much like I did with some of my previous chapters.  If you haven't already, please read the first part, Chapter 12a here:
-----------------------------
                *Teana, please be safe!* Yami prayed, inwardly, as he scoured the deserted streets.
        With his mind racing in desperation, the young prince scanned every rounded corner, each passing alleyway! Running faster and faster, he thought of nothing but reaching the young woman; hurrying in the direction of her blood curdling scream!
        And yet, the anticipation of finding Teana inadvertently trig

Author's Note (January 2018): Hello again everyone! How are you? I hope you're all doing well! :) (Smile) Though it's been a LONG time again, but here I amn, trying to power on through with this story! It's never easy, but it is something that I want to see through to the end, no matter how long it takes! I must apologize for my particularly long absence, however, but sadly 2017 was not a pleasant year... Aside from the normal stresses of life such as work, and relationships, there was a tragic death in my family that greatly affected me and my loved ones for several months. Coupled with a personal struggle as well, there were times where I wouldn't even be able to think about this story of mine, as beloved as it is. I am hoping however, that with the release of this chapter, I'll be able to update at least a little more frequently, but I suppose only time will tell....
Th


Well, I guess that's all for now!  I'm happy that I was able to finally write a new entry, and to touch base with all of you at long last!  I'll try to come back soon, and hopefully have something new to post, whether it's a new art, a or a new chapter.  I really and truly have missed everyone!  No matter how long it takes, I WILL respond to messages and I WILL present new work that I hope you'll all enjoy!  Take care now, thank you again for everything and until next time!

Lots of love, :blowkiss:
