Hello everyone,

I'm a young French author, and I'm currently writing a Sailor Moon fanfic (in English!) called Pretty Guardian Sailor Lilith. I believe it may be of some interest for Sailor Moon fans worldwide so I'd like to share it with you! Smile

i enjoyed it! It was good to read that characters such as Rei have simular personalities to the other formats of Sailor Moon such as the Anime and Manga and that it hasnt changed to much...i also liked how there is still a lot of mystery to the story. Although i know that the scouts are involved with the plot (courtesy of the prologue) the reason why is still a mystery Smile

Thanks again. Smile

It is very important for me to respect the main points of the original works (wouldn't be much of a fanfic otherwise, would it?), even though I'm taking some freedom with details here and there. Also, the personnalities of the sailor senshi are very important to the story, you'll see later why... Wink

I hesitated a lot before writing the prologue, I was afraid that it would either give too much information, or feel completely useless. In the end, I'm glad how I managed to play with the readers' natural trend to fill in the gaps. Razz

Stay tuned!

I'm speechless. I've come across many writers who try to write stories like these. But the sad thing is, they either one don't finish it, or two it has nothing to do with the actual story. So it's good to see that you are finishing it, and are still writing, and that it still goes with the actual story, but that in a way you have made it your own. When you do finish it, publish it, because there are millions of people who love this stuff over here "D

If I was in a playful mood I would say that you do have quite a lot to say for someone speechless. Wink

Seriously, this is the most beautiful compliment I could ever wish for. I indeed pride myself on seizing the essence of Takeuchi's works, which is very important to me since I wouldn't even pretend to write a fanfic otherwise. I don't write randomly, I have pondered this storyline for a long time, at least to find a reason why a new sailor senshi should appear whereas no one's ever heard of her. I think most fanfic writers add new senshis as some sort of deus ex machina (like, a new enemy appears out of nowhere, which requires new senshis appearing out of nowhere as well to cope with them), but I feel this is contrary to Sailor Moon's spirit because the heroines themselves follow a very specific set-up (that is to say, the planets from the solar system, to which you can't add or substract one without a very good reason to do so). This is something I'm not doing with Sailor Lilith (which is a pretty big clue as to what her purpose is by the way). Wink I can tell you more about this specific issue (as a "making-of bonus" Wink ) as soon as the story is finished, as not to spoil the mystery.

Anyway, thank you very much. Smile Hope you'll keep reading till the end and like the rest as much as you like the story so far. Smile

Oh, by the way, please do point out English mistakes when you come across them. I must do some from time to time since it's not my mother language, and I would really like to improve my written English to the best of my ability (might come in handy since I do some translation as a part-time job, maybe I could get to a professional level).

Thanks again and stay tuned folks. Smile

Considering English isn't your mother language, reading it has not been a problem, in fact it is a pleasure Smile There are a few spelling mistakes and grammatical errors but i have found nothing major so far, that's a credit to anyone who's second language is English because it is a difficult language which includes possesive apostrphes and words with multiple meanings. The vocabulary you use is fairly extensive too.

I completely agree with donna.themaniak, although she will slaughter me because i have many unfinished stories, but yes, hope you continue writing, and if not this, just writing in general because if i could understand French i would read the other stories published on that link (If i understand that link correctly, the other stuff on there is also your work)

Thank you MissMina. Smile

I might not make that many mistakes but in order to be able to do translations at a professional level I need to make none! So please do point out even the slightest of them, this is me asking. Smile

Actually I use a wordbook at almost every sentence Razz, but it's not because I don't know the word, it's just that they don't come to me. Since I'm not used to write stories in English, I have to think my narration in French first, and only then put it in English. Also, I'm so afraid to misuse a word or a phrase that I can't help but check if I'm not mistaken. I guess you could say I do two things at the same time: writing and translating.

As a matter of fact I do have many unfinished stories as well (which you can't see for yourself since they're in a language you don't understand) and, believe me, I get slaughtered myself every now and then by my friends. If I can keep up with Sailor Lilith so well, it's all thanks to you and your support. Smile

Yep, everything on that blog is my work. I would love to be able to write everything in both French and English, because I have virtually the same number of friends who speak either language but not the other. Sadly, I have many obligations in my daily life, and it almost feels miraculous to me how much I manage to write nonetheless. But if I ever publish something (which should be soon enough if everything goes according to plan) I'll make sure to give you the references so that you can find it in your bookstore as soon as it becomes available in English. Smile

I'm currently spending all my free time preparing a role-playing game afternoon for this week-end, but I'll make sure to have a new episode finished right after. Smile

Oh, and I thought you might like to be able to read the small foreword I put at the beginning of the first chapter (not the prologue). So here it is, just go back there and enjoy. Smile

You mean to read the stories in French? If so, I hope Google Translate really does the trick because I tend to be very metaphorical and there are a few parts where you might be very confused if not translated properly. Very Happy

Anyway thanks for your interest and don't hesitate to ask if Google Translate leaves obscure parts, I'd be more than happy to explain them to you. Smile

i would be translating the french to english first, but yes, Google translate has proved very useful in the past, and i will be sure to ask if i read it and im thinking "what...i don't get it Question "

Actually I've just given it a try myself to get an idea of what you might be reading... And, well, the result isn't as bas as one could think. Very Happy Yet there are some issues that might bother you while you're reading.

First differences in words positions make some sentences so, that you might think the subject refers to itself whereas it does not. Ex: "I did not wake up" (Google Translate) for "I didn't want to wake you up".

Next many "he" are replaced with "she" or "it" and conversely, which can be very confusing at some points. Same goes for "his" and "her".

Tenses are not very well translated and GT translates many parts to the present tense whereas virtually everything's in the past.

Some negative sentences are translated to affirmative sentences. Ex: "Everybody cares" (GT) for "Nobody cares" (it's because in French we say something like "everybody don't care")

Hope this helps make your reading a little smoother. Smile

Besides you'll have to take my word for it that the French text actually sounds artistic rather than monkey-like. lol!

Ok, so i read the new episode and enjoyed it quite thoroughly, i have found something within it that i dont quite make sense of but i think that may be more me being a perfectionist and a realist to some extent
