Going to Comiket

I realise that my last post was kind of negative. And, I guess that is just kind of how I am. Sometimes I just brain dump here because I know that at least someone will hear it, and that there is only a minimal chance that anyone I work with will find it

 

But I need to be honest with you – I actually am pretty content with life. I’ve had a great run of luck (apart form the Zemlya results…) and I’ve now managed to experience a huge range of things. I should probably drop this fiction racquet and pick up autobiography. But that’s a little too pretentious for me.

Anyway, I’ll be at Comiket this winter, and Weee and I are working on an adaption of Dreamer for the 4LS booth.

 

Because I wanted to get rid of the negativity of the last post, I thought I’d post my comments (and my half-a-bottle-of-wine translation) for you. If you want the updated story, you’ll have to come by our booth at the show!

 

If you had told me 10 years ago that I would have a booth at Comiket, I would have called you a liar. And yet, here we are.

Being a part of 4LS has been a journey for me. When I left in 2009 I thought I would never return. So, even though this is only a short story, it feels good to be producing something with the team again. Unfortunately, I have more ideas that I have time to write them, but I hope that I can at least bring a few more ideas to life in future.

Of course, this wouldn’t have been possible without the support of you; the fans. The reason I write is because I want to make people “feel” like I do when I read a good book or watch a great drama. There is something about the raw emotion in fiction. We root for heroes even though we know they don’t exist. We gasp at the unexpected. We cry when our favourite characters are in pain.

That’s what I hope I can make you feel.

This is only a short story, but I hope to see you all again soon. If you want to get in touch please follow me on twitter @OneillCam or at https://cplcrud.wordpress.com

Thanks to @weee_desu for the illustrations, @ksjpproject for the translation and my friends at @fourleafstudios for providing the support for this work. You’re all great.

10年前、俺に「コミケットにブースにある」と言ったら、「あなたはあほじゃない?」と返事することでした。なのに、ここにいるでしょう。

Four Leaf Studiosに入ったから長い旅になりました。2009年辞めた時、絶対に戻らないと思いました。だからこの短編小説はなんか大事にしていました。4LSの皆様と一笑に働いてるのはすごく嬉しいです。俺の頭の中で、書ける時間があるより「Idea」がありますので、将来にまた小説を書ける可能性があると思います。

もちろん、ファンがいなっかたら、この短編小説を書くのは無理です。俺が小説を書くの理由は、他人が、素敵な本を読んだり、感動するのドラマを見たり、踊りたいおんがくを聞いたりしてる俺と同じの「感じ」をさせたいのことです。フィクションは、心からの感じを出せることです。この世界の中がいないの人を応援する。突然ことに喘ぐ。好きなチャラが傷着いたらなく。

あなた、そのことを感じさせたら喜びます。

今回、短編小説しかなかったが、また会えてほしい。連絡したいなら、俺のTwitter は@OneillCamとブログはhttps://cplcrud.wordpress.com です

絵を描いた@Weee_desu、小説を翻訳した@ksjpproject、応援してくれた@fouleafstudiosの友達に、まことに感謝しています。皆がいなっかたら、何も書けないことになるはずです。
