(updates on tuesday!)

What's This?

The story, despite its title, has nothing to do with Puritan separatists.  Nor does it have much to do with religion. I chose the title because it sounded much better than Pioneer. :P

So basically, this is a (heavily) rehashed version of an old comic idea I had. The old comic had a really stupid plot and was designed to make fun of all the cliches in 'spirited away' type stories. Especially in manga (ex, Inuyasha, Fushigi Yuugi, Magic Knight Rayearth, etc.). I was so deluded as to the quality of the story and my own ability that I actually submitted it to Tokyopop RSoM3. How embarrassing. *shudder*

More recently, I thought, "What if I took the form of that story, but made it serious?" Not completely lacking in comedy, but took the idea seriously and subverted some of those overdone cliche elements.

This is what I came up with, a story about a young woman who finds herself in another land without any prophecies, epic questing, or world-saving to do.

An old ditty I found in my diary, quite relevant ->
Anyway, it's a girl-is-transported-to-another-world type story. But, instead of making it a comedy, I'm trying more to subvert things. Especially the things that bug me about those types of stories-- no language barrier, prophecies, cutesy animal companions, bishounen heroes, angst, the villain with good, if twisted intentions...
You know, mix it up, but keep it fantasy-drama. Serious drama, not omg-which-bishi-do-I-go-with? drama. *gags*
