Hey everyone, just me again.
Okay, I've been going through my old files the other day, just familiarizing myself again with my fave Sailor Sirius pics and checking over the Sailor Sirius fanfictions when something hit me...something that surprised me so much, it might as well have been a truck hitting me!
I just realized that it's been 12 years...that's right, 12 YEARS since I first wrote the Sailor Sirius Chronicles.
I remember it like it was yesterday...on January 18th, 1997, after months of reworking and modifying the character of Sailor Sirius, I dared myself to sit down and write the first chapter of the Sailor Sirius Chronicles. I can't believe how YOUNG I was then, how much of a silly, whacky, kid I was and a new fan of this totally unique, amazing, and mesmerizing anime called Sailor Moon. After watching a few episodes of it (mind you, I thought it was an AMERICAN show because of the English dub), I thought to myself.."Hey, I can make up a character like that!" But when I looked on the internet, there were already otaku (fan) Sailor Senshi made...but they were all almost alike. They were either blonde or red-head, perfect, and either from America or Canada. I wanted someone different from them, someone from a background and country no one has thought about, so after months of brainstorming...behold, Sailor Sirius was born.
I'm so proud that I held on to Sailor Sirius as long as I did. I've seen many fan senshi appear and disappear...fanfictions started and never finished, and I'm so happy I never did that. I don't profess that Sailor Sirius was better than any other fan-created senshi, but I do deserve to be pleased with myself that I stuck with the fanfiction, finished her story, and while Sailor Sirius did not get as popular and get as much acknowledgment and comments as I hoped, at least her story was told, at least she lasted as long as she did.
So yeah, I'm very proud of myself.
But I couldn't have done it alone. Thanks, those of you who did take the time to read her story, to tell me what you liked, what you thought I could have improved on and changed. Thanks to those of you who didn't remain silent and spoke up. You guys showed a majority very few in the Sailor Moon community have. Because of you, Sailor Sirius became much better than what I could have thought of alone. You guys know who you are.
There were many times I've wanted to give up, to scrap it all because I thought I was doing something wrong. At times, the silence was deafening, but you guys...the ones who wrote me about Sailor Sirius, pulled me out of my slump. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart.
Okies, besides Sailor Sirius, I do have a bit of The Princess And The Frog news.
There's a new description of a scene from the movie, and it's about how Prince Naveen was turned into a frog. You can read about it here:[link]
There are also some updates on some new Princess And The Frog products (toys and plushies), costumes, and a new clip art of Tiana and Naveen. Naveen looks so cute, and he looks like a fun-filled guy!

That's about it for now. I'll be sure to post up some updates on The Princess And The Frog once I get news. Thanks for taking the time to read my nonsense everyone, and have a wonderful St. Patrick's Day!
