Hello out there, dA. Jeez, how long has it been? The only real thing I've done here is favorite art and "you're welcome for the fave", since last December! Almost a year of inactivity...

Well, I think I may finally have a reason to dust off my account post something again. Though I've been drawing here and there between my college studies in photography, that isn't what I want to start.

Having been a fan of the Sword Art Online franchise since the start of the anime adaptation in 2012, and having continued to develop my fan character even throughout my inactivity, I've decided that I want to write. A fan fiction that focuses notably on my fan character, as well as at least two existing characters from the series, whom at this point in the adaption (Mother's Rosario arc), have been virtually sidelined. It will be a story running parallel to the MR arc, but will have little to no intersections.

The name: Sword Art Online - Silver Shards

To those familiar with SAO, either in the light novels or the anime, Silver Shards would be considered a side story (or side arc). As for the characters that would receive a more-or-less secondary role to Kotashiro, my fan character, first and foremost would be Sinon, along with appearances by Leafa and very occasionally by Kirito himself... Though the spotlight would surely be on my character, this being a fan fiction after all. I may also considering creating a few more characters, or collaborating with a friend/friends of mine, who also are fans of SAO (of course), as well as possibly featuring other cameos from existing characters in the SAO universe. 

Right now, as I write this journal entry, I have a Word document open, ready to tap out the beginnings of this fan fic... but really, the idea is still quite jumbled in my head. I suppose that besides the fact that I've really been into SAO since its roots, that my inspiration for writing this comes after taking a look at a short piece based around Kirito and Asuna, a couple of years ago, and notably seeing that its view count has almost reached 12,000, with an average of 20 (give or take) additional views a day. Though I'm not in this for the views, I realize that on this website, there is a serious demand for fan-written work based on existing stories. It goes without saying, though, that creating something like this (whether based on SAO or not) has been cooking in my mind for quite a while.

So, dare I say why not?

With my Christmas holiday coming up, it'll give me time to work on this. Knowing that I've been inactive for so long, I'm wondering if any of you - my tiny "watcher base" - take any interest? I'm going to do it no matter what, but perhaps I'm just curious of how many of you are still around after a year. It would be nice to say hi to any of you, of course. ;)

Well, that's all I got for now. If you are interested in what I've been up to over all this time, come take a look at my Flickr gallery by following this link:…

I do sell prints of my photographic work, BTW. If you are interested, send me a note here on dA. I'd be happy to reply, and maybe even chat it up a bit. Always open to conversation.

Well I'm out. As usual, I have places to be and people to see. Sayonara! :)

Greetings and Salutations, deviantART! This is The NovaBUS Fan! Welcome to my collection of art and photography that I do so hope you enjoy.

After a year of inactivity, I found it high time to return to dA. Why? To write a fan fiction based off of the ever so popular Sword Art Online franchise. I will be beginning to write soon, if I haven't already. Meanwhile, please feel free to see what else I've been up to by following the links bellow. Thank you!
