And no, this is not an update. As you can see, I have stopped updates despite reassurances of it two years ago. (Thanks, Captain Obvious) And for that, I apologize.
Some comments from the readers have made me realize after pointing out some things. There were inconsistencies such as Takamina not having magic or being able to control it, making you readers confused. After analyzing it and rereading the plot that I have written down, I decided to rewrite some things. Some things will change, some will not. This fanfiction has been decided to be based on focusing on the characters that brought me to the fandom, and I doubt that I will include the ones I'm not familiar with. Yes, yes. They will act OOC in this AU, but for entertainment purposes and for the course of the plot. I will try, however, to include their personality traits or what made them them
in real life, such as Oshima Yuko's tendency to be known as the pervert back in the old days.
I'm still in the process of cleaning up and fixing my mistakes, rewriting entire chapters that I would have posted but forgotten to remember the essence of the plot because once you write, well...your fingers and plot bunnies can change everything. As it has been a long time, I am trying to familiarize myself once again with the characters, so I'll be depending on your opinions through polls and inquiries for things like how you saw them, what made them stand out, and such.
Now...Why write or continue to bother when I don't even remember the character traits of the people the story is based on? Well, it's because this had been sitting in my laptop (the plot, the chapter timelines, the major events, etc) for at least five years. It all started out fun and something I just wanted to share, but then comments here and there change some stuff. I'm glad for the criticism that made my grammar better in some way, but realized that I was trying too hard to make it seem like a book. Too much information or description, but not enough dialogue or wit. There's something missing. I want to show everyone the plot that just bombed right in my face.
So, rest assured if you still are interested in reading the story, I do plan on posting it despite the characters having already graduated from AKB48 or other sister groups. The question is, when will I get to it? That, I'm afraid to say is something I do not know the answer to. It will depend on the amount of information you might be able to provide me, as I'll be taking your opinions into consideration. I have created a family trees researching about government or monarchy. Heck, I've even created a religion for this Alternate Universe by researching and mixing ideologies of current religions. And as of now, I'm in the process of creating a map for the supposed Mundane realm.
But why bother telling you this when I'm not posting a chapter or update anyway soon? Probably to assure you that I am serious about this. So yes, I am really depending on your questions and answers to whatever inquiry I may have. I have rambled far too much and some may not have finished reading this post, so best to get to it.
If you did read the entire post, I may not have a potato to give you but here's a butt
to show how this story is making me feel. KDP
