Well lookie here!

Hello! It's been so long since I was granted the honor to moderate this community. I'm so terribly sorry for the negligence. Like you all, I have a life that kept me so busy! I never even got to do anything worthy of this community T__T;

When I first took over this community, I had planned on having a new layout and doing other stuff that would get the members to interact with the fandom. But of course, that never happen. I'm so sorry, everyone! The layout I had been working on is nowhere to be found anymore. My PC crashed and I literally had to pick up the pieces again.

I've recently found more time and my love for Spirited Away and all things Miyazaki never went anywhere. So if anyone still pays attention to this community, there's still hope! And if that's so, I'm open to ideas of what you would all like to see here.

I don't know if anyone still checks in on this place, but if you do, say a quick hello!

Thank you!

When I was first introduced to the fan fiction assignment, I felt really nervous and inadequate. I felt that I could not even write a traditional paper well, not to mention writing a fan fiction, which demands careful planning of characters and plots. I had no idea what to write about at all two days until the due day. I struggled to develop the story at the beginning, especially since there were so many directions I could go and they all sounded equally good.  After consulting my parents and other friends, I decided to let Chihiro and Haku reencounter each other in college. Now that I’ve written it, I have to admit that this assignment was very interesting because I had so much freedom in terms of writing the plot and describing the characters. It was also easier than a traditional argumentative essay. After this assignment, I had a much better impressions of fans and their fan fictions. I feel that fans are very similar to movie producers or book writers. They both write stories about imaginary characters. The mere difference is  the producers and the book writers have the original. My beta partner showered me with compliments. He said that I should continue to expand the story. I truly appreciated his comment but thought that if I completed the story then there would be no room for my audience to imagine. I believe that if I leave more questions and space, it will be more interesting and get more popularity.
