Happy New Year!!!

It's already 2012. Time flies by so quickly that it frightens me. This year has been a busy year, very work-focused. Truthfully, it wasn't the best year at all, and I spent a good portion of it with a horrible cold, but that's that. This coming year is the "Year of the Black Dragon."

I was very excited when I heard that CLAMP designed a wedding dress for the Tokyo Bridal Collection, unveiled Christmas Eve. I think it fits the Card Captor Sakura image very well, though I had envisioned something a bit more elaborate, but I think it's just given that paper does not always translate well to real life. I prefer it modeled than on display. I wish I can see a close up of CLAMP's new CCS artwork.

Anyhow, when I heard about CLAMP designing the wedding dress, I couldn't help thinking CLAMP and I are in sync. It'll make more sense with Chapter 68 of New Trials. As for any New Year's resolution? Finish the new chapters of New Trials of Card Captor Sakura in a timely manner. In fact, the immediate goal: finish Chapter 68. It' getting there!

Happy New Year 2012!!!

I'll leave you with one of my favorite songs from Kokia, Time to Say Goodbye. It has that bittersweet tone befitting the end of one year and starting a new one. 

See lyrics here.


  1. That wedding dress was really cute. <3 ^^

    Hope you update chapter 68 soon. I'm so...curious to read next chapter. New trials is a really good fanfic and it's realistic and well-written compared to some of the other fanfiction I read. ^^

  2. I really admire you wish-chan! And i so fell in love with your "New Trials" as soon as i read the first paragraph! It's been 6 months that I'm reading it... I even wrote a mail to you... But i never got a reply... I hope you reply me soon... I'm still waiting! :) :) I hope that Ch 68 is up soon! :D
    Hope you read my mail...

  5. Hi Wish-chan! Happy New Year. I wish you all the best for 2012! I'm glad to say that I found my way back to your story. I'm picking up the Summary Project again too~ I just started Chapter 64: A Christmas Miracle. You can always contact me at if you'd like me to add them to

    I adore wedding dresses! I can't walk by a bridal store without stopping to see the designs. I got married in July 2010, and even though I visited tons of stores, the first one that I finally found was The One.

    Keep up the good work!

  6. Hello!

    You don't know me but years ago, I couldn't have been older than than 15 I started reading your fanfiction. It was amazing. My favorite of all time. Though as high school progressed I spent less and less time reading fan fiction until it was a distant memory. Well a couple weeks ago I read a series called the Hunger Games. It frustrated me so I turned to fan fiction to get more. I was stunned to find that not every series has a Wish-chan that writes wonderful, amazingly long, satisfying stories. So I decided to try and find your site again. I was so surprised that you were still writing. I want to start over and read the whole thing again! You are so inspiring. I still hope to be half the writer you are one day.

    1. Thank you so much for returning to New Trials. I always am very grateful to old readers who return once more and find me. Like we're growing a bit older together. I've been trying to read Hunger Games. I'm waiting for my coworker to finish reading the book so he can give it to me. Lol.
