I'm starting to get to the point where I'm starting to lose interest. I'm starting to see plot holes and inconsistencies--and I'm really starting to feel my lack of research in mythology, setting, and character.
And yes, I know it's a terrible Twilight ripoff with Japanese mythology, but...I saw the new 50SoG episode, and saw Lindsay and Nella find Chinese-based and Indian mythology-based Twilight ripoffs written by "white, cis female[s]." ...Which I partially am, except for the cis part, in which while I'm fine with being labeled as female by other people, and I'm comfortable with my gender, I don't think of myself as really "female."
...I'll be okay and I'll update this later with my progress.
