Nuuu! This story is too good to give up! This summer under a delusional spell I even printed it all off and made it into a crap quality novella. In retrospect that might've not been the best idea, but what the hell what's done is done! The thrill of reading it was worth it. I can't believe it was a year ago when I would anxiously look forward to an update. How nostalgic. :lol:

Nevertheless, you needn't submit to peer pressure if it's going to cause you strife. The best masterpieces are done naturally after-all.

1) Does everyone seriously want me to continue writing this?
Considering how this fic is one of the few to get as many bumps as it has, I'd say that the answer would be yes.



2) This story is exhausting for me to write, and school is being a pain. Please give me good reasons to continue.
Well, it's not like you'd have to make updates every 2-3 days like you were before. Hell, even just one update per month or if you were only able to update when you were on break from school, it'd be cool.  You could always use your fic writing as a "theraputic break" in between study sessions.

The long and short of it is, basically, all we're hoping for is some closure with the story arcs.  I'm not ashamed to admit that I can't stop wondering about what'll happen with the Nacchi/Maki and GAM relationship arcs.  :oops:




3) Anything else anyone wants to say to me?
As has been stated by others here, by no means are we asking that you continue to write this if you're really not feeling it anymore. It'd majorly suck if it just got left unfinished like how many other potentially good fics here have been, but in the end, it is your decision.  If you could just let us know either way what your end decision is, it would be greatly appreciated since then we'd at least know.


Oh, and we also send wubz. :heart:  :wub:



(sorry about the abrupt tone here, I just got back from a 13 hour shift at work and I'm too dead to be polite.)
Yeah, I've done that before when I was still in Uni.

What JFC said!

Whatever your decision is we accept it, but the point is, draw a clear line and tell us (IN BIG BOLD LETTERS ^^) this thing is finished. I've seen other stories I follow getting updates after over a year, so this is not out of the question.

And to avoid further begging and whining from your faithful followers you could move the thread to the library and declare it -complete-.

Well I'm very glad that everyone is so supportive. It makes me happy. ^_^

I went back and reread through the thread and the story, and it just reminded me of how fun it used to be. I had forgotten about that lol. Towards the end it became more and more of a chore instead of fun, so i guess I just have to recapture that feeling in order to write again.

So no, it's not dead yet. It's gonna take a while, but at least until after the worst of my deadlines are over, then I'll be able to work on it again. I have a number of projects to finish this semester, so yeah. ^^; Thanks for all the support, people. I'm glad everyone is so patient even when I'm being a brat about it...

I really love the story   :yep: I even didn’t fell sleepy while reading from 8 in the evening and had only to stop and pretended to be asleep on the couch because someone’s coming my way  :grin:  and it’s already 6 in the morning, I didn’t want to get reprimanded that early  XD  I continued reading this afternoon and was like ‘it’s not finished yet?!’  :huhuh well I did have a good laugh and still will grin like an idiot just remembering some of the scenes  :D The proposal, the ceremony and beyond that, The Turtle’s and turtles’ attack, The groping demon and the target, The bickering of two perverts, to name a few, were totally wicked cool and awesomely entertaining. It surely is a crackfic  :twothumbs

Estrea!!!!!!!!!! Your story has been haunting me  :cry: and I can't stop seeing mm as pirates. So this is what resulted in it
 (sorry this doesn't really look like Miki but oh well. I keep drawing MM pirates). Well back to lurking for me hope to see more of your writing in the future.  :D

Why do people keep reviving this. D:

Oh and, nice drawing, rankuro. :D

I have plans for AA. As for what they are, well, wait until after one of my current stories is over before I will say anything. XD Rokun knows "something", but he knows better than to blab. :lol:

But yeah... >_> Why do people insist on reminding me of this? D: lol. XD

Re: All Aboard! Pirate Musumes

This is an awesome fic.  Sailing ships, pirates, swordfights and Morning Musume.  Very descriptive and good use of words throughout.  The whole Miki Aya interaction pulls you through the whole 25 pages wondering what will happen. 

If you're looking for some more story arcs to continue your story here are some arcs that might be worth developing.  You may have already thought of these though.  What if the pirate ship and girls were attacked by some evil tentacle monsters.. or giant squid or octopus or all three.  That always makes things interesting.  Aya could get captured and almost defiled before Pirate Miki saves her.. thus winning her love. 

Some other ways you could go would be mass hurricanes and tsunami's so everyone has to fight to keep the ship afloat.  A shipwreck would be exciting as well with everyone almost drowning.  Then throw in  a few coastal towns to seige, plunder, and burn.  Maybe some towns with ninja or vikings or mongols or  what not.  You could go a lot of ways with this. 

Wherever you take this story, i'm looking forward to it.  I'm hoping you get some free time to continue. 
If you actually use one of those story arcs,  I'll make sure to delete this post so it doesn't spoil the story for your readers.  Good luck
Arrrrr.

Hi Estrea-san!

I'm kinda new to the forum.....(this is actually the first time I've ever commented on anything on the internet... so if what I say seems weird please excuse.. :nervous) AA is definitely one of the best fics I've ever read! Its amazing!! I understand if you've lost interest in the fic so therefore I won't ask you to continue it if you don't want to.
It's just that your fic is so amazing I couldn't help but comment :thumbup :tama-lotsaluv:
