September 21, 2013: it's time, it's time!
You guys! You guys! The second-to-last episode of Digimon re:GENESIS is up!!!
Episode 50: No Crying Until the End is up and I'm about to go upload it elsewhere. Uhm. Holy crap, I'm actually really excited about this.
Episode 51 will come out next week. Consider it a promise.
Excuse me while I go cry a bit. In the meantime, you should totally review or comment. Innocent whistle. I'm gonna keep comments to myself for now, save 'em up for next time. Oh, geeze. Wow. Enjoy!
September 12, 2013: hey guess what's out
guess what's finally out
That's right! Episode 49: Dust to Dust is finished and out! I think this is the longest chapter yet. ... hyperventilates loudly.
Review (on ff.net) or comment (on dA) if you can! I'd really love to hear what you think as we get to the end. ... I'm SCARED, OKAY? I hope to finish before (or rather, on) re:GEN's 2nd anniversary. Holy crap. It feels like only yesterday I was celebrating its first birthday. And soon it's going to be done... wow. Holy crap.
Anyway! Read read read!
August 26, 2013: Oops. Sorry about that.
Oops. Sorry, life kind of caught up to me and a massive re-write of a lot of what I had written was called for, and some other real-life crafting stuff got in the way of writing. Whoops.
Chapter 49 is coming, hopefully before the end of the month!
July 22, 2013: As promised!
Episode 48: Spin the Wheel is out. Aaaa holy crap we're coming up on the end way too fast I'm scared help
Find it in your heart to comment or review on dA or FF.net plox. It's all I get and aaa I'M TOO CLOSE TO THE END SEND HELP.
July 17, 2013: Sorry about the delay-- new chapter on Monday.
Sorry, life got to me and I wasn't able to update-- I'm working on stuff in real life, apparently!
To avoid borking the schedule too hard, chapter 48 will be out on Monday.
July 8, 2013: Holy crap, what's that? A new chapter?
It's true-- episode 47: Knocking on Heaven's Door is out now! To go with it, there's a new profile out, too, under 'other characters'-- it will be updated as more information becomes available.
Holy crap. We only have four chapters left.
July 2, 2013: Sorry about the false alarm-- chapter 46 is out!
Sorry about the false alarm last night, anyone who saw it-- I realized after about 10 minutes that I was unbearably unsatisfied with the ending, so I took it down before too much damage could be done. Whoopsies. Anyway! Chapter 46: A Call to Arms is out now! Please please please comment on dA or review on ff.net-- I'm going to be doing a sprint to finish writing re:GEN this month, so I need all the encouragement I can get!
Wish me luck-- and look forward to regular updates for the rest of the month. Hopefully until the end...
June 11, 2013: Oh yeah, forgot to mention: new link and some other stuff!
First: There's a new FDD project on the links page, for Digimon Inferno! I always love to support other FDD creators, and the creator of this one is a pretty cool guy~ go check it out.
Second: Check it. Background.
Third: I totally re-did the main (non-character) OSTs-- check 'em out on the Soundtracks sub-page!
Fourth: I finally made profiles for Shamon and BlackWarGreymon. Check those out under the "other characters" heading!
June 10, 2013: No update, just another status report.
You ever notice how a lot of projects will be the "sorry this was so late, we'll be on-schedule again now" and then never update again?
Never gonna happen for re:GEN. In fact...
If all goes according to plan, re:GENESIS will be finished (writing, not releasing) by the end of July. I'm participating in Camp NaNoWriMo next month (like normal NaNo, but in the summer, and with a self-set word goal), and my broad goal is "however many words it takes to finish re:GEN". It's kinda scary to me, to be so near the end. Hopefully I will finish it, and then release it one chapter a week until the end, just like I did during NaNoWriMo proper.
I write this thing haphazardly, so if I finish chapter 46 by the end of the month (I promise I will-- when have I ever failed you? ... don't answer that), it should be either five or six chapters left... so fingers crossed! It will come, and sooner than I really want to admit it's going to. And then, re:CONNECT will drop a few weeks after re:GENESIS wraps up, but it won't be the end of these guys, I promise. I still have to re-write the crappy old chapters!
Anyway. I donno. I just wanna say thanks to everyone for being patient, and that I hope I can give a satisfactory payoff.
May 23, 2013: As promised...
Chapter 45: Revelations is out before the end of May!
I'm not commenting at all on this one, outside of my suggested listening for the events after the 'fight'. Profiles, etc, will change in accordance soonish.
May 15, 2012: No update, just a check-in
Hey, I'm paranoid about people thinking I've ever given up on this, so I'm just checking in to say hey-- chapter 45 is coming along (finally), as is the re-write of chapter 2. Sorry, I've kind of gotten preoccupied doing stuff on Subeta, which -- to those unaware -- is a pet site I am quite enamored with. (Think Gaia meets Neopets with a generally skewed-older userbase.) I'm doing stuff like teaching myself CSS! (And also less productive things like doing Nuzlocke runs in Pokemon games.)
Also I'm trying to sort stuff out for my upcoming project, Digimon re:CONNECT... and that's a whooole pile of work on its own! So I promise I will update the fic before the end of May, hopefully sooner. The goal is to be done with re:GENESIS by the end of summer, but we'll see, yeah?
Sorry if you're expecting an actual update, I'm just forever fearful that people think I've forgotten this... so many sites just go under without any announcement and I don't want that to happen here.
April 23, 2013: Hey, I actually got two chapters out in a month!
I can't say much without spoiling much... but chapter 44: Show Me Your Colours is out!
As a little visual bonus, I've added something to the first-time Mega evolution episodes for a bit of colour. Don't worry, you'll notice it. Anyway! Yes! Go! Read! Enjoy!
April 11, 2013: I promise I'm not dead-- and I come bearing a chapter!
Whoof! So sorry for the delay, there-- life happened. But I'm back, I've finished up chapter 43: Brothers in Arms, and it's just about go-time! This was a hard chapter to write because there's no real 'fight' in this chapter, it's all more emotional stuff and character stuff and yadda yadda. Harder than "kicking ass and writing things down".
Anyway! Moved all the old news to the old updates page, and... that seems to be about it!
January-Feburary 2013 (no march)
February 25, 2013: The re:WRITE begins!
Sorry, I had to. Anyway! The first re-written chapter has been uploaded and has replaced the old chapter 01 file! The old one is still available lower down on the chapter page, so don't worry, it's still there. I'll be doing these over the next few weeks, since they take substantially less effort than writing new material... don't worry, chapter 43 is under work, too~
February 23, 2012: Minor stuff
Over the next few days I'll be doing tweaks to the informational pages; I've already added an entirely superfluous little fanonizing about digimon as a type of creature on one of the "World Info" pages and a quick map I made to the page about the Digital World and areas, and a few more tweaks and re-writes are forthcoming. Again, don't mind this, this is just me totally neurotically cataloging every single change I make...
February 22, 2013: What's that? You want chapter 42? Well, you got it!
First, if you haven't already noticed, check out the swanky new banner~
I think you all realize by now that when I stop updating for a month, it means I either got lazy, or my life was taking over. This time, it was both, because my job saps my will to live! Two birds with one stone. Buuuut I work week on/week off (family/step-dad's shop and it's a long story), and now is my off week so I immediately got the will to write back. Go figure!
The point of this is that Chapter 42: Falling Stars is out~
(Also, in two weeks I'll be visiting friends in Florida, sooo... lol oops, prepare for no updates from March 8th-18th. I'll try to update before then! I also believe we'll be going to MegaCon in Orlando one of the days I'm there! so idk, I doubt this is relevant to anyone, but if on the offchance anyone is there, I'll be the Meowth gijinka hanging around an Emolga gijinka...)
So I'm putting the end off with a new project: re-writing the first bunch of chapters! I'll be replacing them bit by bit (any "replaced" chapter will be archived for posterity, don't worry), but Chapter 1 mk. II isn't done yet so don't worry yet. There will be no major nor even minor plot changes, just better writing and a few more character-building scenes, and improved differentiation of said characters from the start. It's just for my neuroticism~
Anyway! I've gone on long enough.
February 2, 2012: Hey, check it out, I released the next chapter on-time!
It's true-- Chapter 41: Blue is out! The reason for this is real simple: this is the chapter, or at least the first half of it, was one of the first things I knew I'd write when I began this story. So I knew darn well what to do, and was chomping at the bit to write it. Low-action this time, but lots of important stuff to absorb. It's all downhill from here, guys...
If you look around, you'll find that I've added a new profile, but it's not linked on the main indexes-- read the chapter and you'll know what to look for.
January 27, 2012: And this one's a doozy
Hey! Chapter 40: Through an Open Door is out, and I legitimately think this one is the longest yet. Lots of reveals, revelations, and what I feel is a pretty good action sequence, too! I'm super proud of it-- and yes, there's a reference to Adventure in there. Shouldn't be hard to find. ; ) I gotta pay homage~ Anyway, enjoy!
January 16, 2012: Just a gallery update
Just updating to put forth that I've added to the "my art" gallery a new piece of work-- one that took very nearly 20 hours to complete, as it was created pixel by pixel. I really need more hobbies.
Will try to get next chapter out by Monday, but no promises; stuff's kinda busy. Anyhizzle.
January 11, 2013: BAM, CHAPTER 39
Okay! Whoof! Chapter 39: Follow in Your Flightsteps is finally out! I hope to try and get maybe more on schedule again, but who knows? My life's gonna gone wahoonie shaped at the moment, buuut. We'll see! Enjoy.
January 9, 2013: Oops.
Sorry that I haven't updated lately... I'm not busy, but various aspects of my life have kind of gone up in flames right now. I'm stressed out beyond measure, but I just want to tell you that I'm still here and still slowly chipping away at chapter 39. Belated happy new year, and if you haven't already, check out the pre-launch contest for my upcoming/post-re:GEN project!
If you didn't notice, I added new, fancy, actually decent "CD covers" to all the Best Partner pages back in late December, which I'd been meaning to do for a while.
Chapter 39 should be out soon, I promise.
December 17, 2012: Whoop whoop, update time
Sorry that this is a BIT later than the past few updates, buuut, hey, it's Monday, that's my "scheduled" update day. Shhhh. I've been busy, and though now I'm home for the holidays from college, I've been running around with friensd and fam the past few days. So! Without further ado: Chapter 38: Pretending I'm a Superman is out! Officially the end of the NaNo-written chapters~ Enjoy!
December 8, 2012: What's that? An update?
Man, how are you guys enjoying the fact that I've updated on-schedule for, what, six weeks in a row? That's nuts. Next week my "queue" runs out and I'll be posting the last words I wrote for NaNo, but it also means I don't have to worry much about writing coming up this week-- I've got finals. Eugh. I should just curl up in a blanket and become a burrito, burritos don't have to take final exams...
That said! Chapter 37: Like a Kamikaze is up! I hope you guys like it! If you love me, you'll leave me a comment on deviantArt, or leave a review (even an anon one!) on Fanfiction.net! Yeah, I'm not above begging, but hey, it's the only payment I get for writing this crap! :P See you next week-- same bat time, same bat channel.
December 1, 2012: hehahahahah
I won NaNoWriMo
The bad ("bad") news is that I only got up through about 4/5ths of the way through Chapter 38. What does this mean for you? I only have one more complete chapter "queued", but they're all significantly longer, most of them falling around the 8k mark. Wow!
So that said... Chapter 36: Never Turn Around is out now! This contains one of the favorite lines I've ever written-- those who follow the tumblr already know it because I posted it last night, but hey. I really hope y'all enjoy it... I'm taking a week off as soon as I get this uploaded everywhere!
Also, moved all of the November news to Old News, and a small addition to the "my art" part of the gallery.
November 24, 2012: Ah, hell, it's 1 AM on Saturday, have chapter 35
The last November update-- but you heard right! Chapter 35: This Is My Place In Time is out! Go go go go go : D I'm pretty drastically behind on NaNoWriMo, so chances are updates will return to Mondays after this. I'll be too busy panicking on the last day of November to even think of updating. P: But!
Not just that, but the second (of a planned total of three) OST soundtrack listings is up-- go check it out under the Soundtracks page! New "opening theme" and everything.
November 18, 2012: What was that? Chapter 34?
Yep yep yep! Chapter 34: Got Your Back is out~ I'm super-behind, I need to hammer out another 4000 words today, so I don't have much to say, but I'm quiiiiite happy with this~ Bwehehe. Faris is so fun to write. Anyhoo! Enjoy~
Also, a small addition to the art-by-me page-- it's also at the end of chapter 32, for mood purposes. P: Quite potential spoilers if you're, say, more than ten chapters behind, so take care.
November 11, 2012: Chapter 33 is out!
Chapter 33: Madhouse is released as of today-- I think this is the longest one yet! Again, NaNoWriMo really gets stuff done. I'm almost done with chapter 34, so it will definitely be out this time next week-- lemme tell you how weird it is to be ahead. Yeesh! Anyway-- I hope you guys like it! Feedback is rad, if you can review on ff.net or comment on dA-- it's the only payment I really get for doing this and it just warms my heart. Or something. Anyway! See y'all next week~
November 4, 2012: Chapter 32! NaNoWriMo gets stuff done.
As promised, Chapter 32: Devil on Your Back is out -- as a product of my NaNoWriMo! The next month -- and quite possibly beyond! -- should actually be on schedule as I type until my fingers bleed and actually have a back-log of chapters... I hope you all enjoy it! It gets stuff done. I'm having fun thus far!
October 25, 2012: Sorry about no update, but... prepare yourselves
Yep, guess what I'm doing this year?
That's right: NaNoWriMo.
And guess what I'm doing!
I'm gonna try to hammer out 50,000 words of re:GENESIS! That's 10 chapters, man. You ready for this crap? I'm not. Oh god. That said, updates should happen weekly again starting in November, because I will be typing like a maniac. Wish me luck!
October 8, 2012: Happy Birthday, Digimon re:GENESIS.
Chapter 31: The World You Left is out-- on schedule! I couldn't miss its birthday. :)
One year ago this site went live.
One year ago my life changed in a big way.
I don't know what I'd do without this story-- it's just become so central to me. I love it, I love everything it's done for me, and I'm just... so grateful.
My longer digression about what this means to me is on dA. You might notice a new splash here on the site, too~
Peace. Love. Thanks.
July - September 2012
September 30, 2012: CHAPTER 30 IS OUT
SO SORRY FOR THE DELAY! But Chapter 30: Swamp Gases is out!
I'm so, so sorry for how long this took... some really weird personal crap happened among my friends and I, and... yeah. It kinda put a dent in my drive to write, bluh. I hope you forgive me, and I hope you enjoy! <3 This one sets up some pretty maaaajor stuff... read close and keep your eyes open~
Peace (and thanks for putting up with this crap)!
September 13, 2012: Ack
Ughhh, I'm sorry about the delay! I will work my hardest to get chapter 30 out soon, but collij takes precedent and all that. I'm just super-afraid you'll think I've abandoned this-- and it couldn't be further from the truth! I'm busy trying to get chapter 30 out, and also working on something a few friends already know... it's not quite re:GEN related, but it is Digimon, so keep your eyes peeled. ;)
Peace (and thanks for putting up with this crap)!
August 29, 2012: I's a collij studint!
So sorry about delays-- I'll try my best for chapter 30 on Monday, but I'm a collij studint now! Wow. Kinda scary! I'm settling into my classes and schedule, and my classes are easy enough that writing shouldn't be a problem-- it's just a matter of getting into the groove. Thanks for being patient~
I added another minor boring page, just "legal" stuff-- linked at the bottom if you're weird and interested in that for some reason.
August 13, 2012: Gallery updates
One small addition to My Art -- a chibi of something you will not see often (a hatless Simon!!!) and something you will see often (Egakumon thinking he's funny), and more importantly, a piece of art added to By Others -- an absolutely fantastic piece I commissioned from a faboo artist on dA of Epidemon!
go look at it, it's great
August 12, 2012, Part 2: And some other stuff!
Added two things: or, rather, roughly twelve things...
On the gallery: I've added the "full" versions of the new digivolution lines (under their own heading), a drawing of Egakumon (under My Art), and an incredibly long-overdue picture that I used as a desktop wallpaper! I'll only be uploading it at my size, but you can feel free to use it if you really want? Also, the gallery is now separated into "My Art" and "By Others" pages, because loading it all at once was getting a bit taxing.
On the side of profiles, I've added four new profiles -- one for each of the members of Javermon's gang, and Magoriamon! They're all under "Javermon's Gang", which is linked on Other Characters.
There should be a gallery update that combines these two things vurry soon, so... hehehe. :3c Anyhoo. Yes!
August 12, 2012: Guess what today's update is.
Guess what today's update is. G'wan, guess. That's right:
Chapter 29: Free Falling is out! I'm so sorry about the schedule irregularities this summer, but I've been busy! I will try my damndest to get chapter 30 out by next week because... uh-oh. Yeah, I'm a collij stoodint as of next Monday! Classes start then, and I'll be trying to settle in. I seem to write better/more on-schedule during the school year, but we'll have to see about how my new schedule and coursework plays into it. (I should have a supereasy first semester, though.)
Anyway, enough whining about my life... Enjoy! <3
Again, a promise:
re:GEN will only end when it's over. I promise you that I will never, ever let this project fall by the wayside. No joke.
There will be further updates later today, but I'll talk about those when they happen.
July 30, 2012: I LIED I'm busy sorry
Aaauraugh, sorry--I'm busy. Just keeping y'all updated so you know I'm not dead.
All the digimon profile/evo page art has been updated, but... yeah. Whooo. Episode as soon as I can.
July 24, 2012: Art update and chapter by the end of the day
Ugh, it's 5 AM-- I should be asleep. But! Guess what finally got updated? The profile art for all the digimon and their evolutions! Aww yiss.
Chapter by the end of the day (~24 hours from now, that is)! Sorry it's late. Y'all understand.
Peace (and sleep),
July 20, 2012: Sorry about schedule oddness
I'm sorry that the schedule has been so awful this summer-- I'm preparing to go to college and have other things going on! I'm super-sorry-- re:GEN is NEVER going under until it's done, so just please hold on while the schedule is a bit erratic for a few more weeks. Once everything settles down I'll be writing more regularly again. Chapter 29 should be out by Monday, and yeah. Thank you all for bearing with me!
Moved all the old updates to the Old Updates page finally, so. Yeah!
June 30, 2012: Chapter 28!
Okay, sorry for the large, but Chapter 28: Those Chosen by the Sovereign is out! I feel bad for all the action-free chapters, but don't worry, chapter 29 will make up for it.
And actually be on time, I promise. <_> See you guys in a week! Actually, probably sooner, I'm updating some art very soon... but!
June 27, 2012: Frig, I'm sorry
Frick, I'm sorry. Life just really caught up to me the past month... I will try to have chapter 28 by the end of the week, and be back on schedule after that. :/ I'm so sorry, and... crap, I feel like people may suspect I've abandoned it. The chapter is just giving me so much trouble, and also I've gained a new fandom that's come out in full force the past month
avengers, and... yeah. It'll come out, I promise.
Peace (and pleads for forgiveness),
May 31, 2012: Oops did I not say
Sorry, life... yeah, got to me this week. Chapter 28 on Monday. Sorry!
May 28, 2012: A bit of a delay
Sorry-- I'm a bit preoccupied/busy lately-- I can't seem to stop drawing and I want to take advantage of this burst of creativity. Update will happen tomorrow! Not too late, right?
May 21, 2012: so I herd you like updates
Episode 27: Lost Time is released! I'll be adding a profile for Epidemon soon, but not for a little bit-- I want more than just him, out of his little group, to appear. P: So yeah. Enjoy!
Oh! Also, I's a high-school gradjeeit now. Teehee.
May 14, 2012: And it's out!
Episode 26: Altitude Sickness is out! Checkit. 8D This was such a pain to write, but I'm not too displeased with it. And like chapters before it it sets up some important things, so... yeah! Read and enjoy. We should be going back to the normal schedule now!
May 10, 2012: Pushing it back
Ugh, sorry. Moving chapter 26 to Monday and then resuming schedule-- I've had a hectic week. :T It should cool down soon, so... chapter 26 on Monday and then we fall back into once/week updates.
(Why do I always keep y'all updated? Well, I'm terrified you'll think I'll go like half of all FDD projects, where they say "it'll be out soon" and then are never heard from again. So!)
May 8, 2012: Sorry for no update
Happy May! Moved all April updates to Old Updates.
Sorry for no update yesterday-- I'll try to get chapter 26 out by Wednesday night, but I have to finish my final-grade project in one class. Following next Monday (which I'll try my damndest to get out on-schedule), there should be zero schedule blips-- I'm graduating from highschool a week from Sunday(!) and then it's summahtime, with few things to keep me away from writing. Rock on, y'all-- I have some really cool stuff planned, both for future chapters and for supplemental stuff. ;)
April 30, 2012: Finally!
Chapter 25: Down the Rabbit Hole is out. You know those times when you're writing a chapter, but you get sidetracked? Yeah, that happened, and so most of what was planned got bumped back to 26, but hey, I can't resist a good transition. :)
April 23, 2012: Not back yet, but...
I did great on my project, y'all-- which means re:GENESIS will be back with Episode 25 within a week! ;) I, for one, am excited. Been too long since I've had the spare time to sit down and write... g'heeze.
See y'all in a week-- or less! Sorry I keep ducking out of updates, but I swear I'll always keep you updated so you don't think I'm just petering out. Fair warning: there will be no update on the "on or before" Monday, June the 18th, but that's like forever away innit
April 10, 2012: Temporary hiatus
Moved all the March news to the old news page, but more importantly:
As evidenced by the no chapter update yesterday, Digimon re:GENESIS is going on a very brief hiatus, until the end of April. Why, that's only three weeks! I might even be back in two, but school has to be my focus right now if I want to graduate, so. Yeah. Sorry! See you all in a couple weeks. ;)
March 30, 2012: Episode 24 lands
Episode 24: Breathe In is out! It's a bit of a breather episode-- no big fight, but hey, the last two episodes were pretty intense, so I figured we needed a breather. Look forward to new human profile art going up any second now, and a rather overdue addition to the gallery. Drew it quite a few days ago but never added it, whoops...
Anyway! That's that. Also, I'm going to plug the fantastic Digimon Advent again. The two people behind Advent are my friends, biggest supporters, and they rock.
March 24, 2012: Episode 23, bam!
It's flashback time, kiddies! Episode 23: True Colours is out! ;) And now we see how Luke's pre-arrival time went... but! See you next week.
Oh and also the best FDD project ever, Digimon Advent, has a new site out today. Go love them. New link on my links page~
March 21, 2012: Clarity
Decided something. While I usually use Japanese terms for Digivolution levels, I'm going to just not use "Ultimate" at all-- between the fact that it's used for one level in Japanese and another in English, from here on out the official progression as far as re:GEN is "Baby I -> Baby II -> Child -> Adult -> Perfect-> Mega".
Going through and changing evo pages; give me a holler over at dA if you find anything I miss.
March 18, 2012: Site updates
Added the link to Lukas and Sampamon's Best Partner albums. And also another album entirely that I've had to keep secret. P: So... enjoy! Six new songs to partake of. I've also updated some chapter-22 relevant profiles, and decided to axe the ally and agent listings-- they're too much trouble to upkeep. The former Agent page has been turned to a description of the three major ranks in the Era Corps, and the Allies page has been axed until further notice.
March 17, 2012: Yep.
Chapter 22: Zero Hour is out. No comments today. Just read it. TEEHEE
March 11, 2012: Minor things
Changed a couple soundtrack things, and a new gallery piece by me. P: seventh partners are so close I can almost taste iiiiit
March 8, 2012: Hey, look, already!
In what may be the fastest turnaround time yet, I've already released Chapter 21: Countdown.
There's a reason for this. I'm going to be unavailable to write next Wednesday through the Monday after, so I want to have ample time to get chapter 22 done. I won't post it early, because, well, dramatic tension. ;) But hey! Enjoy for now.
March 4, 2012: Chapter's out!
Chapter 20: Little Lion Man is out! I'm really excited about the next couple. :) Also, gave BurningBaghamon new art (on Rajamon's digivolutions page), so checkit.
So... yeah! There's also another piece of character art but it's spoilery until you read it. It's linked in-story, so. Have fun!
March 3, 2012: A new month, and one new piece of fanart!
Hey y'all~ Moved the (scant) February updates to the Old News page... and a new piece of fanart! Seriously, it's this kind of crap that makes my day when it happens. That anyone likes my crappy little project enough to take time to make art for it, totally unprovoked... seriously. It's fantastic, and re:GEN wouldn't be here without y'all.
Chapter 20 will be on time-- tomorrow night if not earlier.
February 26, take 2: Minor updates
Updated the credits page to account for the second contest winner's digimon in chapter 19, gave Deekamon some new art, and added yet another page to the right sidebar. I'd urge you all to read it. ;)
February 26, 2012: At long last! Double feature! And schedule change...
Chapter 18: Fracture and Chapter 19: The Pieces Come Together are out!
But possibly more interesting is the fact that I'm going back to a once a week schedule. Updating once every two weeks is easier on me, but it makes it so I get into the habit of not writing and then I update late. :T So it's back to once a week-- for now.
However, there might be a late update a little in March-- the 14th through the 19th, I'm going to visit my boyfriend this time, so that Monday may not receive an update. Until then, though, and after, I'll try my hardest to get everything on-schedule. I'm so sorry about the delay on these, but I hope they make up for it.
February 21, 2012: Sorry about that-- next update will be the big one
I'm incomprehensibly sorry about the delay on chapter 18; as it is, I'll make up for it. The next chapter update will be on or by Monday the 27th, and it will be a double release-- chapters 18 and 19 both at once. In the meantime, a new addition to the gallery, and check out Fobidramon's page-- though they'll never appear in-story I decided to draw out his pre-evolutions, so if you're curious, they're now linked on his page. Even got a convenient link to his current appearance, too.
Chapter 20's gonna be a big one, kiddos. ; ) Once chapter 20 gets in motion, the entire rest of Forbidramon's arc will come to a head... but, one step at a time.
February 6, 2012: OST Updates
Hi, y'all. Moved all the January updates to old updates. Chapter 18 should be on-schedule, but fiiiirst
Added a bunch of music to the main OST. Take a look for more insight into my horrible taste in music!
Sorry to say that's all I've got to report today, but hey, it's something.
January 28, 2012: Chapter 17 and little changes
Hey guuuys! Chapter 17: A Break in the Clouds is out! Go read it. The next chapter will, in fact, focus on how Julian and Toby got to that point, so... heheh.
Second: New piece of 'by other people' fanart, this one by the other half of the amazing Digimon Advent, DS. Seriously if you're not reading Advent you've got no excuse. Also another new piece by me.
Third: Updated a couple songs on the soundtracks, namely the Best Partner ones. I keep changing these things, maybe someday I'll be content... :T BAH hahahah yeah right.
Fourth: Finally updated the designs of the D-GEAR Units-- see the D-GEAR page to see the new. Pretend the artwork has the kids with them instead of the old designs, I ain't re-drawing them.
But! Um, I think that's all. Teehee.
January 27, 2012: Now with Update Titles
A few updates to tide you over until chapter 17!
Gallery updates: I actually did this last week, but if you didn't notice, I added one more 'group' picture of all the child-levels... and as of today, a new piece of art by another person, the fantabulous Chi, one half of the amazing Digimon Advent team, and if you're not reading Digimon Advent, you should.
Deviantart update: Digimon re:GENESIS group! I made it not to laud myself, but to make it easy to have a place where everything -- the fic, my art, other art -- is all in one place, on one page, for live updates. Feel free to watch or join!
Update update: I'm going to start adding titles onto the updates, so y'all can tell at a glance what I'm doing.
Possible site update: considering installing a comments feature onto chapters, to get easier feedback... We'll see, though. Until then, you can always review at FF.net or comment on dA.
That's it for today-- have a good'un. I promise that chapter 17 will be out on-schedule this time.
January 19, 2012
Chapter 16 is out. So sorry about the delay... I may be switching to a bi-weekly schedule after this. Real life concerns and all. That, and these keep getting longer and longer... anyway! I'm super-tired, so I'll do update stuff tomorrow. Also, about the ending:
Dooon't worry, it won't be half this easy. ;)
January 18, 2012
Incomprehensibly sorry about the delay on chapter 16, but real life always has to take precedence. I've had a rough week, and I'm trying to put my best efforts into making future chapters as good as they can be. I'll try to keep on-schedule, but
Chapter will be out tonight or tomorrow.
January 13, 2012
Chapter 16 should be coming out on-schedule (finally), but first I announce:
I maaaay be editting chapters 1-12 soon, because I am frankly embarassed by how poor my characterization was. Not that it's great now, but I'm finally (finally) getting a handle on how each character is, and I need to fix the blandness of old chapters. Herp.
So... yeah! Keep an eye out and see if you can spot where I change things. Like a ninja.
January 10, 2012
Chapter 15: Shocking! is finally out! It's also, I think, the longest chapter yet just for pure text. Whoof!
Sorry on the delay, it got out of hand. .~.
Anyway! Enjoy! The schedule should go back to normal as of next week.
January 4, 2012
Happy belated new yeaaar! Moved all December updates to old news. BUT!
Hey, y'all. Sorry about the lull, but I'm back to writing and chapter 15 should be out this coming Monday. As a reminder of why I was away: my boyfriend was visiting the 28th through the 2nd, and being with him was absolutely faboo~. While I love y'all and re:GEN, I didn't want to spend my little time with him writing Digimon fanfiction, so. Yeah.
In the meantime I'm adding a picture of StarShokunimon that I did for grins to the gallery page.
Anyway, yeah! Good to be back staring at the HTML input for this thing, hahah.
December 25, 2011
Murry Christbo, peoples!
Obviously I'm not doing much of anything site-wise, but because SOMEONE pressured me into it... behold, the official Digimon re:GEN TVTropes Page. Help me edit it if you can (and know that I have it on watch, so don't try to do anything stupid).
Yes. Have a good'un!
December 22, 2011
Chapter 14: Star Bright is up real early! Call it my Christmas present to all y'all. ;) I think I'm getting better at this.
Now, I may or may not be late with the next chapter-- I've got some serious IRL things going on soon that may interfere with writing (Christmas, a big paper due, and my boyfriend visiting over New Years~), but I'll try my best to put out chapter 15 by the 2nd of January, 2012.
December 18, 2011
Chapter 13: Unlucky Thirteen is up! Check it out, actual plot threads continuing throughout more than one chapter. A lot of important stuff happens in this chapter, including one line that I think changes the game in a big way.
Also added a new piece of fanart to the gallery! Thanks, guys, this stuff warms my heart. Seriously!
December 13, 2011 (take two)
Chapter 12: Keeping Tally is up! Complete with the beginning of one of the contest prizes set in motion-- Denimon enters the show! Don't worry, there'll be more in the next chapter. Second place winner will appear further along, but I just had to revise my chapter plan a teensy bit for this. It's about what's convenient and writes in well, so... don't worry!
Will update the appropriate pages (Era Corps, Allies, and the Credits page) very, very soon, and also will add a small page on the World Info tab for Capital City, but for now. Enjoy!
Also, added a new link. I'll link to any FDD project that links to me, so just drop me a line!
December 13, 2011
New (improved?) splash. Sorry for the chapter 12 delay-- life's been iffy the past week! Should be up tonight.
December 12, 2011
The first Digimon re:GENESIS contest is done and judged! Massive amounts of congratulations to those who placed, and endless thanks anyway to those who didn't-- every entry had something about it that made it hard for me to give the verdict. Look forward to appearances from some canon immigrants soon!
The results are over on my deviantart page.
In the meantime, I'll be adding the contest pieces to the gallery page directly, under a special heading.
December 11, 2011
New addition to the gallery page (by me), and that has hence been chopped up into profile art-- so all the kids finally have non-chibi profile art! Fancy that.
Yeah. Chapter 12 will be up on-time tomorrow evening, and the re:GEN contest ends at the end of today... the excitement.
December 9, 2011
Just updating to say I re-wrote all of the initial six kids' and digimon's profiles, or at least the personality bits; hopefully they're more personality-riffic now, heheh.
Also! I just realized that yesterday, it had been two months since re:GENESIS launched. Thanks to everyone who's passed by to look at this, read the chapters, commented on the stuff on dA-- I don't get as much feedback as I might like (COUGH COUGH) but hey, knowing anyone's looking at this crap? That's enough for me.
No, seriously, though-- thanks!
December 5, 2011
As promised (or, vaguely stated), chapter update (or, due-by) days have been moved to Mondays to work better with my schedule.
That said, Episode 11: Friends and Foes has been released! I really have a ball writing Forbidramon, because he's a complete shmuck. Will update agent files (and Reimon's part of its and Forbidramon's joint profile) soon.
December 4, 2011
Just updating to say hey guys re:GENESIS is now on tumblr. Yeah, started an alt blog. (Still not posting my personal account, it's really irrelevant to everything), but yeah-- follow it to keep up with ALL THE THINGS. Art, musing, story stuff, relevant music-- as soon as it gets into its full swing it should be a nice bit of supplementary material. Maybe even make it easier to give feedback? Nonsense!
Also! Because (A) chapter 11 is already done, and (B) I figure it will give me a better setup of days on which to write, I might be moving update days to Mondays instead of Saturdays. Think about it: that way, I can write the chapter over the weekends even if I've not worked on it at all that week.
So, for that, look forward for tomorrow-- chapter 11'll come out then, more than likely.
December 3, 2011
Couple minor edits to site stuff (sorry, I'm super-neurotic about this kind of thing). Namely, re-arranged the human character index page so as to use the new little pixel headshots I made; changed the link that read "Era Agents" on the Other Characters to read Era Corps, so I don't have to create an entirely different page once higher-than-Agents appear; and added the Era Corps emblem to Era's profile page. I'm considering re-writing the humans' profile information soon, as I've got a bit of a better handle on them now. A bit.
Also, contest deadline has been extended to December 12th, and added a little credits page (see bottom of page).
December 1, 2011
Hey guuuuys. Chapter 10: Together in Harmony is up! Early, too, to make up for the delay last week. I had a lot of fun with this one.
Will upload to dA later tonight and FF.net tomorrow, and update the ally and agent pages later tonight. Now, though, I'm just kinda burnt out on typing. Think of it as your bonus for reading the site!
Also, moved all the November updates to the Old News page. Two months, man! Thanks to erryone who's keeping up.
December 1, 2011
Happy December, erryone. The chapter isn't done yet, but it should be on time this week... but I simply update to report a new piece of fan-art on the gallery, from a friend of mine that I actually know in meat-space! Fancy that.
November 27, 2011
Episode 9: Wayside Heroes is (belatedly) out! Also check out the new 'Allies' characters page. If you've read the Trivia page, the ally of the day may be a familiar name... Era Agent update coming tomorrow, as is the FF.net upload of the chapter.
November 26, 2011
Just popping onto the news to say that this week's chapter will be sliiiightly delayed. It's been a busy week, so. Episode out by tomorrow night. Yeaahhhh.
November 19, 2011
Chapter 8: Forbidden Wisdom is out! Lots of info-dumping and things like that, but hopefully it can hold your interests. Relevantly, check out the "other characters" tab for an important new profile. Also changed the "World" link so it has two separate pages, to keep things organized. Will be editing Era's 'character' page in light of the new developments revealed by Wisemon in this chapter.
November 13, 2011
Added makeshift covers for all the Best Partner albums. They're not official-looking, but they'll do for now!
November 12, 2011
Episode 7: Deeper in the Mellow is out! Now with two battle sequences, and finally I get to start the real plot. Whoof! Thanks to anyone (ANYONE) who's actually keeping up with this crap.
Updating the Era agent file soon, and look out for a new character profile or two after the next chapter.
November 9, 2011
More minor edits. Added a due-date to the chapter index page, and thought it might be fun to include a bit of a hokey little 'on the next Digimon re:GENESIS' preview-summary on the same page (so you know I'm not pulling this entirely out of nowhere as I write it). As you can tell, I don't like leaving things un-documented (and this way you know I'm working on this thing too freakin' much). I always find it kind of depressing when I find an FDD page that updated a couple times and then slid into obscurity... so I go for the opposite. Once everything finally settles down I may update less.
Also, updated the partner digimon's profile pictures because (A) I love the picture, and (B) I changed Iguamon and Sampamon's appearances slightly, so.
November 8, 2011
Nothing really new to report, except for two new additions to the gallery (one by me, one by someone else-- of Nimbimon, Lammon's perfect level) and a new splash based on a modified version of my addition. Chapter 7 should be on-schedule.
(Seriously, it fills me with glee when I get art for this stupid thing or its characters.)
November 4, 2011
I'm on an update roll!
Chapter 6: Seaside Sharpshooter is out (already!). I've decided-- even if the last episode is late, every episode is due by Saturday, and there's nothing wrong with being a little ahead of schedule.
Re:GEN is approaching its one-month-from-launch mark already. Funky, that...
Anyway! Added my first real bit of fanart to the gallery page (thanks oodles to Inakamon on dA, one of the co-creators of Digimon Advent)! Cool stuff.
As per usual, updated the Era Agents listing. Put both Starmon and Deputymon, since they both get defeated, so. Ugh, only one more of these episodes left until I can start doing plot stuff. I'm excited!
November 3, 2011
Check out the contest page now on the right-hand side! Seriously, entering at all guarantees that you receive at least a little art in return.
Go forth-- it's all explained there.
November 2, 2011
Added a little page on the right sidebar for a new little trivia page-- at the mo', it's mostly rambling about things from pre-production of re:GEN. Honestly, I'm probably the only one interested in it, but who knows! Also moved all the October updates to the new Old News page, linked at the bottom. I'll do this every month, so the news page doesn't get clogged up by constant updating. I'm really trying to make this site as well-managed as I can for as held together by duct tape as it is, so anyone who wants to know anything about re:GEN can find it... So!
Edit:Minor change: after some consideration, a little name change. Kamomon's Perfect form is now named Ospreymon, while what was once Ospreymon is now Rocmon. Carry on.
November 1, 2011
Hey guuuys. As promised, Chapter 5: A Light In the Dark is up! Checkit.
Sorry about the delay, I should be back onto the one episode a week again. Maybe I'll even have the next episode done by Saturday? Maybe. Not likely, but I'll try!
Anyway. Also did a bit of routine stuff-- y'know, apparently Webs has decided that capitalization is such a massive issue with URLs that if I capitalize something in a URL, but not in my file manager, it refuses to load. Way-to. So I fixed any instances I could find of that, added some stuff to the gallery, and updated (finally) the image on the D-GEAR page so it's less... crap. Also added this chapter's Enemy of the Daytm, Ankylomon, to the Era Agents file.
October 29, 2011
Chapter 5 is gonna be a bit late-- it'll come out circa Tuesday at the latest, if anyone cares! I've been hella busy the past week, and I've got plans for both the day before Halloween and Halloween itself in addition to all my nerdy highschool concerns (quiz bowl, the fall play, senior project).
Sorry about the delay!
October 22, 2011
Chapter 4: Gloomy Caverns is up. Sorry it's a bit late, but it's still technically Saturday where I live, so... cough cough it's still this week, shhhh.
Anyway! Give it a read.
Also. Screenshots for this and the last chapter will be coming soon, I'm just multitasking a lot and so they'll come in post. I'll post an update when they're up-- as if I don't update about every last thing anyway.
October 20, 2011
Chapter 4's about half-way done, but I feel the need to announce two things:
First, I have started a page (under Other Characters) to catalog the Era agents that have been defeated-- a catalog of the Monster of the Day, that is to say.
Second is that Digimon re:GENESIS can now be found on Fanfiction.net-- check the link nearer the top of this page, under "where this fic can be found", if you fancy checking it out over there.
So yes. Forces willing chapter 4 will be up by tomorrow (I hope)! Also, sorry for all the little updates, it's just me trying to keep on top of everything. Updates will slow down once everything settles into place.
October 18, 2011
Complete re-haul of the OST/soundtrack section. Check out the new one-- now with the actual OST, and Best Partner CDs, too! Art for the Best Partners CDs coming soon, but. Yeah.
Chapter 4 will begin work soon, now that this is done-- seriously, this has been one of the biggest works I've done and I'm probably the only one who cares. Whoops.
October 13, 2011
Chapter 3: The Search Begins is up!
For a while I may be on shaky footing, since I'm trying to be very original flavor to start out. Don't worry, once the "Find Wisemon" arc is over, I'll break out a bit, with luck, since once Wisemon steps in, the rest of the plot gets thrown out of neutral and into drive. Hold tight, since I have this stupid thing planned out to a kind of embarrassing degree, and things just sort of happen as I write. (Seriously, my entire episode plan for this was "Go through forest; Rajamon digivolves" and the entire village thing came up on the spur of the moment and kinda overtook the chapter).
Also, I notice every chapter gets a bit longer than the last...
October 12, 2011
Now uploading Digimon re:GENESIS on a new deviantArt page-- announcing this just so nobody would come to the conclusion that it's ~*unauthorized*~ (like anyone would steal this crap). I still endorse coming here, first and foremost
mostly because I've bust my rear over this site
But it's a publicity-garnering stunt first and foremost, so. Yeah!
Chapter 3's coming along nicely, and should be up by tomorrow or Friday.
October 10, 2011
Added guestbook and OST to bonus sidebar. Time to sleep.
October 9, 2011
Just moved all of the images on the site except for the splash, banner, and link buttons over to Photobucket to preserve bandwidth. Sorry if it causes problems for anybody, but this thing is free, and bandwidth is as limited as they come-- and it was eatin' it up like candy. Hopefully, this should make it a little better and prevent the site from going down in the future.
Again, sorry if this for some reason causes any inconveniences or oddness, but as I'm going to be keeping this site together with the technological equivalent of scotch-tape and white glue, I must be careful.
Also, check it out, links page up (and improved link back here). Shoot me a note on deviantArt or an email (where to do that is detailed on the link page) if you want to get linked.
Chapter 3 should be up in the next week, possibly sooner-- I hope to update with at least one chapter a week, but we'll see how life carries out.
October 8, 2011 (take 2)
Chapter 2: Fools Rush In is already ready to go! Give it a read. I'm experimenting with adding some of those nifty screenshot things to it, but we'll see how well this works out.
I doubt chapters will come out this fast in the future, but hey, relish it while you can. In the past day there have been 40 unique visitors-- and a number of repeats! Geeze, for such a new site you flatter me.
Next stop is to get a links site up, since I noticed I already got linked over on Digimon Reboot, so I figure it's only fair if I return the favor, even if it was only a formality. So expect that to be up fairly soon, even if I don't make a whole news post dedicated to it.
Seriously, just the fact that there are a few people who have shown interest in this make me smile and get all happy about it, as does that creeping-skyward pageviews number-- even if a number of them are me making sure everything works. If you're reading this, thanks a ton!
October 8, 2011
And Digimon re:GENESIS is open!
For starters, Chapter 1: 'From Beyond' is up-- sorry if it's a bit shakily-written, but I had to introduce thirteen characters in one short chapter. I swear, I'm a better writer than this normally! For handy visual aids, every character that's appeared thus far (and a few who haven't) have at least some kind of drawing for them on their profile page, so check those if you need a visual aid.
Every link you find should work-- give me a ring on deviantArt if it doesn't. Check out the episode index to give it a whirl. We (well, I say "we", but it's really just me) are still... well, just a baby site, but I hope I can provide an entertaining, if not the most original or the most well-drawn or the most well-written, experience.
