23, 2003- To my dearly devoted fans, CHAPTER SEVENTEEN
is now up! Maligayang Pasko and please check out the preview for CHAPTER EIGHTEEN.
I thought I could do a weekly update but with finals and other special projects,
it has been intensely difficult. I used to complain about why the Tei and
Riki comics were never updated so fast but now, I completely understand. Writing
does take a lot of work and it is a slow process. Well, I'm in the Philippines
now so i am actually getting a lot of the story done. There are two more chapters
already in the writing process. I am also considering whether to make the
sequel or continue on to the traditional 99 chapters of Tales of the City
by Armistead Maupin. Ay yi yi. Decisions Decisions.
7, 2003- I just took a whim last
night and started doodling the characters in the fanfic. I've now added the
rough sketches for some of the characters on the character information page
so you can see how I perceived these characters. I've concluded two things:
1. I can't draw girls and 2. I can't draw bears. I'm no Joe Philips but at
least I tried. I apologize for not placing CHAPTER SEVENTEEN up yet. I've
been very busy working on school and a dozen other projects but that chapter
is getting close to finished.
24, 2003- Happy
birthday to my sister, my number one fan. And here is your preview to CHAPTER
SEVENTEEN which will be completely up by this week!
17, 2003 -
I have updated the CHARACTER INFORMATION PAGE and am focusing on that. CHAPTER
SEVENTEEN is going pretty slow...especially because there are going to be
many characters in this chapter and I am beign very experimental with the
story. With the CHARACTER INFORMATION page, you get to learn more about the
characters...and read their thoughts! I plan to have graphics of the characters
themselves on this page as well.
8, 2003- After
much effort and a lot of other work on the side, CHAPTER SIXTEEN is finally
up. I have decided to conclude the first novel at CHAPTER TWENTY. But fear
not TOTC1/2 fans, there will be a book two. I'm just getting designs ready.
I am sorry I can't do as much as I used to because I now have homework. But,
yes, I am working on CHAPTER SEVENTEEN and CHAPTER EIGHTEEN which are going
to be two pinnacle chapters. So stay tuned and enjoy! PS- This site will always
be updated on FRIDAYS or THURSDAYS.
19, 2003- My network connection
is not working at home so it is difficult to upload documents into my computer.
CHAPTER SIXTEEN is almost done. I swear. Did you know that the original "Tales
of the City" had 97 chapters?! That means that I will have much work to do.
And I will be incorporating two more important characters very soon. In the
meantime, check out the now updated CHARACTER INFORMATION page where you can
find out more about the characters? I will soon be including graphics for
the characters as well, hand drawn by moi.
9, 2003 - Who wants a poon tease for CHAPTER SIXTEEN?
Shampoo and Jane finally go out and we have the whole sordid story here. I'm
also working on another Web site for a possible senior project called Afterwill.com
dedicated to the analysis of gay male culture. So please visit that and show
31, 2003- Take a look at the "cockteaser" for CHAPTER
FIFTEEN which is now being written as we speak. I'm adding some more fun surprises
underneath the "About the Author." I have a lot more time to upgrade the site
now that I am finished reading my AMS book. I have also upgraded the links
page to show you some stuff I love to look at.
CHAPTER FOURTEEN, after much delay is up. I was on vacation while I was writing
this chapter so I really didn't have much time to write it. I apologize to
my dear fans and promise that my updates will be weekly. If not a story, I
will update something cool and entertaining for this website. Some teasers:
A photo of me for the "About the Author" page and probably some more photoshop
images. Now if only someone can buy me a scanner...
30, 2003- Just to make the story a little bit more fleshed
out, I am proud to release the REAL PROLOGUE of this work. The piece has reached
a point of popularity in which I can reveal one of the many twists of this
book. I have also written the ending for this work because indeed it has to
end and that ending will not change....but the work will not end for quite
a while so my strategy in reading this book is try not to read the ending
before the beginning.
21, 2003- So who wants to see a preview of CHAPTER FOURTEEN?
(Audience: We do!) Well, it's now up for you to enjoy. I'm trying to get this
chapter up by this Friday. And then back to the Ryoga-Ryan-Tyler love triangle
that's going on. Gay plots are soo much fun. ;-)
19, 2003- If you haven't noticed yet, there is a new banner
on this site for "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy" which reached #2 on the
ratings chart on ad-based cable with its premiere! Go Jai and Kyan!!! In other
words, if you have Bravo, watch this show now because it is here!! As for
other updates, look for CHAPTER FOURTEEN's preview and an "About the Author"
13, 2003- CHAPTER THIRTEEN is now up! I better rush and
get the CHAPTER FOURTEEN preview up soon. I am giving the stories a much needed
makeover. You see, my dear sister (and #1 fan) found so many typos in the
story that I used my journalism editing skills and looked through them with
a fine tooth comb. If you also noticed, I changed the rainbow scheme of the
site to accurately match the rainbow colors now accepted at LGBT Pride. That's
right, pink and turquoise are back, ergo, the site is reflected to the Pride
10, 2003- I have found some time to update my website
while I am at work. First of all, you guys notice the new banner on the site.
I am so excited about "The L Word" even though I am not a lesbian but I'm
more excited because I actually get to see this because I have Showtime. I
am updating the links page. I think it's taking too long for Ryoga to learn
how to use the Internet (big plot giveaway) so I am going to put up the gay
links for Ryoga's site. I also added a few more really cool links that I found
for lesbians too. And yes, I am still working on the story and it is ALMOST
9, 2003- I have been busy trying to get my classes in
line first before I could completely make time to update the site. But I can
assure you, CHAPTER THRITEEN (despite my superstitions) is now in the works...I've
placed the first paragraph of the chapter so go visit it! I will keep you
updated as I update the other personal pages about the progress of this chapter.
It is actually getting very close to complete too. In the meantime, check
out the LINKS page for updated LGBT links. I do have an African American Studies
12 midterm on Monday so keep smiling. PS- Jennifer, the ASA 130 write-up will
be available online.
19, 2003- CHAPTER TWELIVE is up. I must apologize for
the intensely slow update but things are getting back to normal. You see,
I had neiserria meningitidis which is the near deadly version of meningitis.
And that is why I was quarantined in the hospital and unable to work on this
story. I am also working on another private writing project, a screenplay
and above that two stories for AAJA (Asian American Journalist Association).
But I promise you that things will get done and I will be the responsible
person I normally am. Thank you to those who keep visiting the site and I
will have CHAPTER THIRTEEN up soon.
30, 2003- Happy Friday everyone. CHAPTER ELEVEN is now
up and we latch back onto the Ryan-Ryoga story. I've also updated the links
page to feature UC Davis' Asian Pacific Islander Queer organization among
several other dozen things. Isn't it exciting that I am presenting this site
on Wednesday. I've also noticed that the page is getting longer. Another thing
I'm working on: A page about me and why I created the site and ASA 69: An
Introduction to Asian American Sexuality. :-)
24, 2003- I have been doing a really good job updating
the site weekly and I intend to keep it that way. This site will receive a
once a week upgrade when I possibly have time to do so but I do have time
becaue I've dedicated this site for a major ASA project that I am working
on. So in the meantime, I've changed the Introduction to the site a little
bit and added my article for OutLOUD magazine: "Gay Toons? A look at the homoerotic
cartoon movement" which explains some of the basic concepts that my fanfic
deals with. I'm almost done with CHAPTER ELEVEN for all those who are excited.
And please don't forget to tell more people about this fantastic website!
CHAPTER TEN is now up! Oooh...I wonder what Jane is up to and how she is getting
over Shampoo. If you want to know too, I would recommend reading that chapter.
In the meantime, I am updating the links page to show you some of the really
cool sites that Shampoo visited when she visited Google. CHAPTER ELEVEN is
now in the works, along with many other things.
8, 2003- CHAPTER NINE IS NOW UP! This has been such a
long quarter with midterms, endless papers and all the above. I've been doing
so many other things right now. But I am working on Chapter Ten. Let's say
Jane gets to "work it" with a mysterious stranger. Thank you to all those
who have visited the website and continue to show support. I am going to put
in more time for this site and I will explain why later. Right now, I am working
on two graphics, one story, three informational pages and learning how to
14, 2003- CHAPTER EIGHT IS NOW UP!!! Isn't that exciting.
I know this update was horribly late but I have been so busy studying many
other things. On the other hand, I will be working on Chapter Nine and the
links page. I just need to find some time first. Please e-mail me your comments
and thank you for showing your support!
6, 2003- Greetings everyone.
My work is very overwhelming (despite the fact that I am very ahead of all
my classes) but I will definitely update the site very soon. Probably tonight.
You see, I am working on Chapter Eight! So please be patient and thank you
for visiting the site. In the mean time, I will update my "TO DO LIST"
- LINKS Page- I
have organized all of my really cool links and am ready to put them up on
this site so watch for that in a couple of days!
- Chapter Eight-
Will Jane ever get over Shampoo? The bigger question is can Shampoo get over
Jane or finally do something about it?
- Character information-
Watch for Ryan Hitomi, Jane Dunway and the Ranma1/2 crew up pretty soon. Pictures
are filling up my bandwith big time but I'll see what I can squeeze in.
- And since everyone
is demanding it, I'll put in more information about Ranma1/2 and "Tales of
5, 2003- CHAPTER SEVEN IS NOW UP! I am so sorry...I'm
taking too many classes. Aaahh! But I am enjoying them so much. Working on
Chapter Eight (back to the Shampoo's story ^_^) I'll probably put up some
more random stuff on this site soon. I'd like to thank everyone who has visited
this site and shown their support! LINKS PAGE COMING SOON!
30, 2003- If you noticed, I updated the banner because
my Photoshop is working again. If you notice, Akane and Ryoga don't have white
stuff around them and the lines next to Ukyou are gone. Sorry that the graphic
is still fuzzy though. In the meantime, I am working on Chapter 7 of the story.
It is coming out slowly and surely thanks to a mixture of writing blocks and
the fact that class starts tomorrow. But I am already thinking ahead and I
have 3 other chapters ready to upload very soon. I am also going to add a
links page but I gotta get all those graphics arranged
27, 2003- Sorry everyone. I have been having technical
difficulties in keeping this site updated since all my ADOBE programming decided
to go haywire. I will update it as muc has I possibly can. Gracias
I'm so sorry that I haven't updated for a long time. I actually have started
to work on the next chapter of the series. But yes, I now have an introduction
page and disclaimer so enjoy and I added a guestbook and web counter. So,
FILL THE GUEST BOOK!!!
What do you guys think of the fabulous new header for the series. I know that
there are several cropping issues and I will work on them when I have more
time. I just wanted to work on my big graphic before I left for San Francisco.
But now, it is done! So this is what I actually do when I am in BITCH MODE
for my Chinese final. God I hope I don't fail.
Chapter Five and
Six are up! I took some time to breeze through Chinese and finish writing
Chapter Five. I still am amazed about how fast this site is getting updated.
Hopefully people can PLUG it But here is what I
- Ryoga and Ryan's
adventures continue in CHAPTER SEVEN.
- Shampoo and
Jane's adventures continue in CHAPTER EIGHT.
I've also started to throw in Ranma and Akane but havent' decided when or
where to put them (big time give away)
- More graphics!
I'm working on a gorgeous Queer As Folk Style graphic for the title head
of this page...
- More information
about Ranma1/2. I do have to tell you that you only need to know only a
little bit for the Prologue. However, Chapter 1-6 stay away from the Ranma1/2
issue...and information about yuri and yaoi.
That's all from
the top of my head. I have a final on Friday morning and I leave for San Francisco
on Friday afternoon. But I will be back in Davis (because I have a job, thank
you God!) on Monday..The dorms close till Wednesday though. Therefore, I am
going to focus more on the story and SPRING QUARTER 2003! Woo hoo!
19, 2003- Do you like the banner? I just did it today!
It's a preview of the wonderful things that Photoshop and Illustrator can
do. I unfortunately still have a Chinese final which I need to study for before
I go crazy! Meanwhile, I edited "Shampoo's Epiphany" (which was somehow linked
to Chapter 3. Still working on Chapter 4 which will be done soon.
After all this time, the site is finally up. I have completed Chapters 1-6
with the exception of Chapter 5. And now, I finally have time to work on the
fanfic site. Woo hoo! For now, Chapters 1-4 are up for your viewing pleasure.
I will work on this tomorrow as I am getting hella tired. I probably will
be adding more stuff to this site soon that isn't fanfic related. But I am
working right now on CHAPTER FIVE!
