Both Part I and Part II of The New Trials of Card Captor Sakura Chapter 71: The Alliance of the Stars are up on I posted up Part I on earlier this month. I'm getting some website issues sorted out, but hopefully I can have a final version of the chapter up on my website soon.   

Yes, in case you were wondering where that S+S fanart in their uniforms comes from, it's this chapter. 

Happy Valentine's Day 2015!

Music Spotlight: Adam Levine - "Lost Stars" 

"But are we all lost stars, trying to light up the dark?"

As you guys know, I was on a Maroon 5 kick last year. I got my Western pop fix and I've been back to listening to J-pop recently. Onitsuka Chihiro was on repeat on my playlist this chapter (after failing to find a good new playlist to write to.) If I had to pick my favorite song of 2014, I'll probably pick "Lost Stars" from the OST of the movie "Begin Again." I was a big fan of "Once," so it was no surprise I loved "Begin Again," which I watched on the airplane last year. I love a good cover of a song, but this is one of those songs I think that only Adam Levine can pull off, especially the falsetto part. I also loved the lyrics of the song, especially, "God, tell us the reason youth is wasted on the young. And I think the song fits nicely with Chapter 71. 


  1. Your music choice is always impeccable. I've been a J-Pop and K-Pop kick lately as well. I was/am still in love with the song Hurt by Ali. Also I loved the K-Drama My Love From Another Star. So of course I've been belting: You aaaaaaare my destinyyyyyy LOL.

    Loved the chapter! You're my writing role model. If you ever want to trade playlist let me know ;)


    1. I love Ali--she's such a powerful vocalist. Ironically, I've been making up a favorite K-pop music spotlight list actually, since I don't think I've ever done that yet. And please do give me music recs; I'm forever running out of songs to listen to (aka getting sick of).

  2. Hi WIsh-chan! It's always refreshing to hear from you. Thanks for the update. A few of us noticed that the site reverted back to the older version. Good luck with getting things back in order! Your last chapter was truly a gift. You're the best!

    1. Thanks~ Yeah, I need to get the website business sorted out. I might toss some ideas in the Yahoo Group later when I need some more second opinions too about the future of the website.

  3. Curious, now that Syaoran's the head of the Li Clan, does that make him like a billionaire or something? I've always wondered what you considered the net worth of the Li Group to be. Do you have an idea in mind?
