Update: Some poems and shnizz

Just a small update really quick here. Added a few poems from the fancy writing class I took last year. You can find them over in the poetry section.

I also added my speech from last season; The Non Sequitur Adventure of Sally Semicolon. It makes absolutely no sense. Unless you’re me. But either way you’ll hopefully find it amusing.


In RL news, I’m moving into the college type place tomorrow, so I’ll be able to get a better idea of how the internet is. I’m not getting my hopes up. Anyway, back to packing.


5 Year Anniversary Update

Ekajra’s Emerald Shrine – Celebrating five years of bringing you the best in procrastination!

Well, at least I didn’t miss the actual day this time.


So, how’s it going internet? Been a while since I’ve made the postings upon this site. It’s been an interesting year. Graduated high school,  starting college in less than a month. So what does that mean for Emerald Shrine?

Not a whole lot, really. I still like writing, and I still like Sonic, so the stories should keep coming. I probably would have written more this summer, but this time it was actually less the procrastination to blame as it was working nights at my summer job, or working overtime if I’m moved to second shift. Twelve hour shifts for the win.

However, I am predicting a return to the fanfictioning once the school year begins. On one hand, lots of college-type learning. But I’m also fairly certain that the dorm internet at my college is really slow. It definitely was when I last visited it and stayed in the dorms and did tour type things and whatnot. So that probably means less time wandering random internet humor sites.

First order of business when I return: finishing Ortus Portenti. I know where it’s going, and I’ve had the first page or so of the next chapter just sitting around this whole time anyway, so jumping back in shouldn’t be too difficult. After that, I have a super special awesome idea cooked up. I’m still avoiding mentioning specifics about it because I think I might actually have an original idea for once and I don’t want to risk someone who works quicker than me stealing it. Not that anyone reads this site anyway!

Ha ha… self deprecation.

Anyway, that idea will take a while just by nature of how it will work. After that I have some things planned for the Ekajra universe, some ideas for other Sonic stories, as well as… ponies?

But, as far as the near future is concerned, in a few weeks I’ll have a bit of time off before I head off to college and I’ll be posting some non-fanfiction things on here, mostly from the fancy writing class I took last year. Most of them aren’t that good, but there’s a few gems. A lot are already on my deviantART, so you can snoop around there. Eventually I’ll get it all evened out so everything on my dA is also on Emerald Shrine.


But, that’s enough of my blathering. Until next time, internets.

Enjoy the pie.

Long time no see…

So, yeah… been away for a while, but I’m back to kick some butt at Wild Canyon but I figured I should make a post just to say what I’ve been up to. I’ve finished another Speech season, but unfortunately I did not make it to State this year. But I’ll be posting this years script once the season is completely over. But as for today I have added a nice little Baccano! story that I did for school. So you can check that out over here.

In addition, what with having nothing to do now, I figured I should get started on that next story I mentioned. You know, the one which I wanted help deciding what to do. Not that anyone answered because, I mean, it’s not like anyone even reads this! Hahahahahahaa…ha…ha…………ha. But, anyway, I’ve decided that I’m going to be writing an Olldsliat origin story. Naturally it won’t be as long as AE, it’ll probably be around New Empire‘s length, likely a bit shorter. So you can expect that to start sometime in the next week, and I’m gonna try and do a weekly update schedule on this one. Though, considering who we’re talking about here, I’m not making any promises.



Srsly, I need to gets myself a PS3. As much as I don’t like Sony controllers, Blu-Ray and free on-line are a bit more important, so I’d probably go with that over a 360. Plus if I ever check out SONIC ’06 for myself I might as well get the (supposedly) somewhat less glitchy version.


Oh, and I’m trying a new theme again because I decided the last one made the text area way too thin for a site based around literature.

Don’t you hate it when…

…your school/dorm’s internet censoring/parental controls software decides to block 99% of the websites you go to on a daily basis?

Yeah, this is kind of just a rant, but hey, we are on a blogging website after all. My guess is either they were just messing with the settings (because last week almost nothing was blocked) or the software just likes to mess with people, but either way pretty much every site in my bookmarks is blocked. So I hope there isn’t an explosion of members on Chaotix while this is like this. After it’s fixed, then we can let everyone in! But as it is I’m amazed I can even get on here.

One funny thing about this(and it isn’t the first time it’s happened; it’s just never been this bad) is that some websites have changed the reason they’re blocked. For example, deviantART is currently blocked because of “Community” along with Facebook and Twitter, but if it is blocked then it’s usually blocked for “Mature Content”. But of course Community is different from “Message Board”, which is what Chaotix (and MLIA strangely enough) are blocked for. Oh, and of course GameFAQs, TSS, and OC Remix are all blocked because of “Game”.

Rant aside, in site/life related news, I am now done with the Speech season (made it to State but didn’t place…), which means I have nothing going on anymore as far as after school shnizz goes, which also means I’ll probably be getting back to writing. I’ve kind of been itching to do some creatin’, and I also just really want to finish AE because 1) I’ve been working on it for like 2 years! 2) I love the ending. and 3) 2 years! Once/if it’s unblocked (I’m sure someone has already complained at a Supervisor about it, but they don’t control all the tech stuff.) I’ll probably make a topic on Chaotix asking what y’all wanna see next. I’ve got a couple ideas.

Also, maybe later tonight or sometime tomorrow I’m gonna throw up my scripts from Speech this year and last, and possibly some other little things I’ve got lying around on my computer. So you can look forward to that.
