Happy Valentine's Day

Sakura x Syaoran - Valentine's Day Cherry Kiss by ~wishluv on deviantART

Wow, this is my first blog post of the new year. I can't believe it's already 2013. Happy New Year, Lunar New Year. My heart is still stopped at 1999, it feels like. Which is the year which I first began writing New Trials, now that I think of it. I had my first very short break in nearly two years last week. I went to Japan for three days again, this time to Fukoka, so I might blog about it later. It's my first time traveling in ages.

It was recently the New Trial Yahoo Group's anniversary, but I didn't get to do anything to celebrate so I felt guilty. But thank you to the Yahoo Group for keeping me inspired through all the ages.

Cherry x Kiss is a concept that I thought would be cute for Sakura and Syaoran. In the Korean-dub broadcast of CCS, Sakura's name was "Cherry." Strangely enough, Syaoran was kept "Sha-o-rang"--perhaps because he's supposed to be foreign. I wonder if anybody would photoshop the picture and erase the cherry, squish them together and actually make them kiss. I might do that actually someday if I'm bored. I was actually doing a Meilin and Kai fanart for Valentine's Day but it ended up coming out so angsty that I decided to stick with S+S for a lighthearted day.

I know you are all waiting for Chapter 69. I was able to get out of my writer's block all thanks to Kirei Blossom's The Secret Wedding Chronicles which I definitely would recommend to pass time if you have't read already. So, though I don't have a lot of time to do personal writing, I've been working consistantly for the past two months, even if its several lines a day. And then I asked myself, why in the world am I making no progress in Chapter 69? It's because I've been writing ahead again. But since there are only an estimated 4-5 chapters left, it's kind of necessary to plan ahead instead of the "plot of the day" sort of chapters that has usually been the case. So, perhaps future chapters will come quicker, but I do promise I'm working hard on Chapter 69.

Song of the day is an all-time favorite feel-good band, Spitz's "Cherry." I didn't realize how much the lyrics can apply to Syaoran in Arc 4, but totally can imagine him singing the song to Sakura. Actually, the song is sadder than I thought, now that I think of it.

Happy Valentine's Day 2013! And belatedly happy birthday to Amethyst Beloved, the wonderful person who has done so much for New Trials over the years, not least of all maintaining and running the New Trial Fan Project site amongst many other things.


  1. Love the picture! I guess it's the next step after this one:

    It seems like every time you post on this blog, my music collection increases more and more. :D Not complaining though.

    Happy Valentine's Day, Wish-chan!

  2. I do not know if it's just me or if perhaps everyone else encountering problems with your website. It seems like some of the text on your posts are running off the screen. Can somebody else please comment and let me know if this is happening to them too? This may be a problem with my browser because I've had this happen previously.
    Thank you

  3. It's always so much fun to hear from you, Wish-chan! Thanks so much for the update about the future chapters. In the Spring it's going to mark my 10th year with New Trials. It seems so unreal that the end is actually in sight.

    Thanks once again for the belated birthday wishes and for linking the NT fan site.

    To Anonymous, yes, I've noticed the same thing on the website. For example, instead of the word "didn't" being one word, the "d" is on one line and the "idn’t" is on the next line. It's weird, but the chapters are so precious that I didn't bother saying anything.

  4. It's always great to have an update from you, Wish-chan! It must be tough having to write out bits of the next chapters all together, but NT has taught us lifetime lessons in patience. ^_^ So don't pressure yourself too much! It feels weird to hear about NT ending.. its always been there since forever.

    Anyway I'm glad my little ficlet helped you come out of writer's block - if it accomplished that much, it was definitely worth writing.

    And to Anonymous and Amethyst - yes, the text in a couple of the NT chapters is running off the page, but its only in Chapters 67 and 68. I checked back on some random chapters and the the rest seem to be fine.

    1. Hmm... actually, I noticed that with the chapters as well but have been too lazy to fix it. I'm not sure why it's doing that--if anyone knows how to change it, let me know. ^^ It might be because I wrote part of those chapters on my work computer which might have had a weird setting...

  5. Love your stories! I have been following them for a few years now. I found your site after re-watching the cardcaptors episodes which is one of my favorite childhood shows and I fell in love with your continuation. I literally check like every day to see if you have anything new haha. I can't wait for your final chapters...seriously I'm desperate to see what you have in store. I hope we will see it soon :) thank you for what you do!

  6. 4 to 5 chapters left? There seems to be so much to wrap up that I thought there would be a few more chapters than that... Well, either way, can't wait to see what you come up with.
