Some pages previews I edited. It's not all I've done.

The table of contents page (unfinished): here.









Someone's bitching arround about me is just being an ass and that I don't care about this anymore but they're wrong. I'm not a god and I can't do everything by myself, if noone help me write / translate / pr the contents then no magazine will be published.

Many people has registered but where're them all now? If you are not serious about participating in this team please don't apply in the first place because you're not getting any profit from doing that.

Now if you still care about this and serious, please leave a comment here say what you can do for this project and I'll give you something to do.

I REALLY need:
For Character of the month (Elliot Nightray) and couple of the month (BreakxSharon) (which is acording to this poll):
- Fanfic/fanart/colorings/review/feeling/comments.
- A PERSON CAN ROLE PLAY ELLIOT AND MAKE FANS HAPPY ABOUT THEIR ANSWER.

For Gallery:
- fanarts, colorings, photos, official colored artworks/scans (textless meaning it must be redrawed) 


For reviews: character reviews or whatever reviews are appreciated.

And if you're interested, here's the planned contents, if you can contribute any article, it'll be great help.

I've been working on a fanfiction for the last several months, if you're interested. It originally began as a kink meme fill and then mutated into this huge long adventure fic. I originally meant it to be a canon exploration fic, with theories of what I THINK might happen, but 65 threw most of them out the window. Instead of reworking the fic, I've decided to make it a 'canon speculation' fic, where it's sort of like 'if X happened, then would Y happen?'

Overall, it's meant to capture the essence and feel of Pandora Hearts, and I AM exploring a lot of theories and themes the fandom seems to share. I'd say the only questionable part is that the fanfic contains NC17 content, if the magazine is not publishing that (though with this fandom . . . ""XD). Also, I am unwilling to do fanfiction other than that, I'm sorry. >.< I have a lot of writing projects right now, and I need to get those done first before I start anything new.

I am also willing to draw fanart, though I dunno how good it will be. I am certainly not the best in this fandom.""XD

Also, I wonder if perhaps the reason is because there have hardly been any updates in this journal? I think if people were getting regular updates and news, they would be more inclined to participate. Otherwise, we don't know what's going on or what needs to be done.

I can understand why you're frustrated, though. ""^^
Fabula Nova Crystallisnova_crystal on November 20th, 2011 07:19 pm (UTC)
It's interesting. We might use it to make a long chapter fiction. Thank you.

Fanart are appreciated too since I haven't get ANY.

Actually because there's nothing to update. I have works for everyone (it's member locked) but almost noone's did them. It make me feel like I'm really stupid or something.

Thanks so much!

Cassie Drey | Kashii Ai | カシイ アイkashii_ai on November 20th, 2011 07:23 pm (UTC)
Okay. Do you want me to send you the manuscript, then? And you're very welcome. ^^ I'm really excited about it, and it would be an honor to have it in the magazine. XD

Okay. What can I do, then?

And I see. That sucks. Uwaaah, was I assigned anything that I don't know about?

Oh, and I forgot to mention but I didn't wanna spam. ""XD I'm a graphic design student, so I can also help with the magazine design and layout too, if you want.

And you're very welcome! :D
Fabula Nova Crystallis: Garnet - Thank younova_crystal on November 20th, 2011 07:34 pm (UTC)
Yes, please do. The first few chapters might be okay. Oh, and are they published yet?

Now we need some fanarts for Elliot and BreakxSharon. Otherwise you can draw any others, we'll put it in the Gallery section.

You can send them to me via PM, by the way.

Oh no, only members of the community can see them so don't worry about it. XD

Thanks so much for contributing. :D
Cassie Drey | Kashii Ai | カシイ アイkashii_ai on November 20th, 2011 07:38 pm (UTC)
Okay. I'll upload it to MediaFire and you can download it, then. And I was just gonna send you the whole thing, as the first four chapters or so of the fic are just the kink meme fill, so there isn't much plot. ""XD That way can you just skim it or whatever. And no, nothing is published. I was planning to prewrite the entire thing first, so I could have weekly updates.

Okay. I was planning to draw some LeoxElliot actually, so I can draw some Elliot too. XD

And yep, PM works.

Ah, okay. Good to know. XD

And you're welcome. ^^
Fabula Nova Crystallis: Garnet - Songnova_crystal on November 20th, 2011 08:39 pm (UTC)
Okay. So, which chapter should I start?

Oh, nice. :) I hope we can release volume 1 ASAP.
Cassie Drey | Kashii Ai | カシイ アイkashii_ai on November 20th, 2011 08:48 pm (UTC)
I would suggest that you start at chapter six-ish, for the plot part. Though it might be good to skim the first few chapters for the sake of context and to see Sharon scaring the pants off Oz and Gil trololol~.

Hehe, me too. XD
Fabula Nova Crystallis: her cutenessnova_crystal on November 22nd, 2011 01:43 pm (UTC)
It's pretty interesting, in my opinion.
So, you want us start layouting it about the 6th chapter, exactly? Need to add any summaries or something?
Cassie Drey | Kashii Ai | カシイ アイ: OzxAlicexGilkashii_ai on November 22nd, 2011 08:10 pm (UTC)
Oh, thanks. I'm one of those people who overthink their fanfiction. ""XD

Oh, no, no. That's just where the more interesting plot starts. I thought you were asking at what point to start reading for the plot. ""XD I would want the fic to start from the beginning, from the prologue, if that's okay.

The only thing is the NC-17 stuff. My only concern with cutting that out (if we have to) is that it makes up the majority of the first arc, and it does have a lot of relationship building and establishment between Oz, Gil, and Alice, and I dunno if the readers would be as accepting of it without those parts. But yeah, you never really said if the magazine is publishing that kind of content or not . . .

Also, this fic is completely unbeta'd. ""XD But I do have two betas to work on it, so you don't have to worry about that. I can go notify them to start on the first arc right away. ^^

Actually, speaking of summaries . . . when I was originally planning to release this fic, I wanted to have two things to go along with it.

The first thing is a fansoundtrack. I make playlists for my writing because it inspires me, and I wanted to turn it into an FST for the fic. I think the music really adds to the story, especially since I wrote most of the emotional parts based on the playlist. I decided to do this mostly because the two FSTs I've already released to the PH fandom were (unexpectedly) huge hits, so I thought my readers would like it.

The second thing was that I wanted to include two or three illustrations with each chapter release. I was planning to draw a lot of them, but it's too much for me to do on my own, so I was recruiting artists to help with it. Thus far I only have one person on board.

I don't know if you would want to include either of these with the release, or not. It's not necessary, as I can always include these things for the FFN/LJ/AO3 run of this fic (for those people who might not pick up/know of the magazine, which I can always run that release after the fic is done in the magazine).

And yes, a summary is probably good. I can write one myself. ^^

Thank you very much for all your time! I'm really excited about this. XD

And if you need anything else, let me know, I will be happy to help. ^^
Fabula Nova Crystallis: ^^nova_crystal on November 23rd, 2011 04:00 am (UTC)
I think NC-17 stuffs are still can be accepted, since we had a T rated fanfiction already. I don't think people will have a problem with that, of course we'll include the warning.

Okay, but I think the magazine will not be publish regularly, if things continue like this. Maybe we only be able to publish one issue/year, or something like that. So I think we should somehow make it up to the interesting part, then it'll be more easier for people to get to the fanfic and enjoy it from the very begining. So I thought you can write a short summary about the first few chapters, then go straight to chapter 6 or something. It's just my opinion, anyway :)

Please do, we need the beta'd version to start layouting right away! Of course, we'll happily release the fst along with the magazine. Don't worry about that. And illustrations are great too. We'll not have to color manga panels to add to the fic anymore XD That'll be a big help!

No, we must thank you for participating in the team :)

I'll. Thanks again!
Cassie Drey | Kashii Ai | カシイ アイkashii_ai on November 23rd, 2011 04:27 am (UTC)
Oh, YAY! I suppose it wouldn't make much difference, honestly, seeing as most minors can access all the smut on FFN/LJ/etc anyway. ""XD That makes me glad, because otherwise it would take out a huge chunk of the fic.

And actually, we could publish it arc by arc. The fic will be divided into three arcs, and the first one is only about 6 chapters long, so it won't be super long. The second will pan out to be 7 chapters, so about the same amount. The longest is the third chapter at 9 chapters, so we could maybe divide that in half or I guess we could do it all at once. ""XD

But yeah, I would rather start from the beginning, as opposed to chapter 6. The fic is meant to build up a certain way the first several chapters are necessary for that. I sort of wanted to lead the fandom into a false sense of security that this will be a cute and happy fic and then chapter 6 and the second arc will be like WHAM!

. . . I'm as bad as Mochijun. I like trolling my readers. ""XD

Okay. I've already informed my one beta, and I shall go bother my other one now. Won't they be happy to find out they have to do the entire first arc. *sarcasm* XD If they're busy, the betas here can always work with it, as well, so we can get it done ASAP. LolRLsuckssometimes.

Okay, awesome! Uwaaah, that makes me glad. I'll do the album art, then, and get the FST put together. And I'll start drawing for the fic when I can, too. But I need help from other artists, because I draw kind of slow. >.>

Uwaah thank you. *blush* I'm just so honored my work is being included. I never thought this would happen. XD
Fabula Nova Crystallis: her cutenessnova_crystal on November 23rd, 2011 07:45 am (UTC)
Okay, then I'll wait for your final version :)

Good luck and thanks, again!

Fabula Nova Crystallis: ^^nova_crystal on November 22nd, 2011 10:40 am (UTC)
Okay I received it and I'll reply asap.
Lilith: matter of time.celestial_m00n on November 20th, 2011 07:29 pm (UTC)
Oh dear. I'm sorry I wasn't a great help. English is not my native and I really can't contribute any article, but you need anything colored you still can ask me!

And you did layout them beautifully, dear. I hope people will contribute more.
Fabula Nova Crystallis: Garnet - Songnova_crystal on November 20th, 2011 07:35 pm (UTC)
YOU're a great help, Jeanna. Almost all colorings I used are yours.

Thanks. I hope so too.
ivypoolivypool on November 20th, 2011 07:49 pm (UTC)
(Okay, I'd like to clear one thing up before I mention what I can do. I don't use LJ much anymore, mainly MSN and tumblr. If you happen to have either of them, reply with them if you could. It would make commutation between us a lot easier. )

I happen to write fanfics for PH. I could do Character of the Month, Pairing, and perhaps RPing. I already have two fanfics out, ones I actually enjoy, called edged blade and heavenly under the username extracts on FF. If you think I'm worthy enough, I'd be happy to do the information, reviews, fanworks, etc on said things.
Fabula Nova Crystallis: Garnet - Surprisenova_crystal on November 20th, 2011 08:28 pm (UTC)
I don't use either of them but I always check my email. Is it okay for you?

As I've said above, anything might work. I don't have the ability to judge your creations so yeah, please do anything you can.

Thanks!
ivypoolivypool on November 20th, 2011 08:33 pm (UTC)
Mhm, that's fine! I'll PM you mine now.

Alright, I'll go make up something for Elliot now. Also, I'm happy to be a part of this! You don't need to thank me for anything. c:
meowchow3893: Elliot: eep!meowchow3893 on November 20th, 2011 08:42 pm (UTC)
As one of the members who voluntarily registered for this, I feel like I haven't contributed much or have done anything.... For that, I am really and truly sorry. I really mean it.

Of course, I am still more than willing to help to complete this project. My colorings and fanart are not the best and I have never written fanfics so I cannot contribute those that you REALLY need... However, I can typeset any of the omakes, or actually typeset anything else like the profiles and such, if the translations are ready.

Again, I am really sorry for my lack of activity.
Fabula Nova Crystallis: Garnet - leave out all the restnova_crystal on November 20th, 2011 09:25 pm (UTC)
I can understand. It's not all because of your fault. I'm a terrible leader, too.

http://ph-unbirthday.livejournal.com/3710.html
Thanks, please use colored scans and the translation above to typeset the character profiles.

Don't worry about it, as long as you still can contribute to the magazine.
meowchow3893: Elly&Leo: friendsmeowchow3893 on November 20th, 2011 09:58 pm (UTC)
Ah... you can't really be blamed for that. No one can expect you to be perfect, and on top of that you were busy with other things too.

On another note, I'll be sure to get these done as soon as possible :]
Mimi1miki1 on November 20th, 2011 09:43 pm (UTC)
You cand go to my da a use ph coloring if you want: http://1yuffie1.deviantart.com/

Just need to credit
Fabula Nova Crystallis: Garnet - leave out all the restnova_crystal on November 21st, 2011 12:41 am (UTC)
Thanks. They might be useful :).

I'm glad i could help :)
hanakotoba_fic on November 21st, 2011 12:55 am (UTC)
My apologies for not doing much. I had to drop a lot of activities online due to work taking up much of my time.

I'll look through what I have from the assignments/translations and contribute what I can, but I may be better off doing something other than translations for the time being.
Fabula Nova Crystallis: Garnet - Thank younova_crystal on November 21st, 2011 07:04 am (UTC)
No, you contributed as a translator so I appreciate it. At least you're serious about being a staff of the project. And yeah, RL might be a real pain in the ass sometimes.

Fiction or anything might do because we actually don't have that much unpublished fanworks. Thanks!
Flower Language - A Fanfic Repository: Alice- we're all mad herehanakotoba_fic on November 21st, 2011 06:08 pm (UTC)
...would it be possible to have a sort of contest to encourage people submitting previously unpublished fanworks - maybe not now, but in a future issue?
Fabula Nova Crystallis: she was therenova_crystal on November 22nd, 2011 06:32 am (UTC)
I actually have thought about them but, the only thing is... prizes. I don't have any prizes which is valuable enough... so... ;A;
alicelalalalacie93 on November 21st, 2011 02:15 am (UTC)
I can help by doing RP as Elliot :D I have RP as him for many times and my RPs friend said that I'm good as him. and I can contribute fanart or coloring too, but it's might take some time to finish it because I'm quiet busy right now ^^"
Fabula Nova Crystallis: Garnet - Surprisenova_crystal on November 21st, 2011 07:22 am (UTC)
Okay then. You're in.

If you're already RP-ing Elliot then you might probably have answer tons of questions. Choose the ones you think interesting and provide me the scripts, please.

About 10-20 Q&A might do. Thanks.
alicelalalalacie93 on November 21st, 2011 03:11 pm (UTC)
oh, questions. about fan-art, is it alright if I only make half body of the character?

and, about the RPing question's. so, I ask the other Elliot fans to make questions for Elliot?

thanks! c:
Fabula Nova Crystallis: ^^nova_crystal on November 22nd, 2011 05:58 am (UTC)
It's okay.

Yeah, exactly.

You're welcome. I'm counting on you! :)
gommyommy: BreakClosedEyedSmilegommyommy on November 21st, 2011 06:47 am (UTC)
I could do proofreading or beta reading if it is helpful.
Fabula Nova Crystallis: Garnet - Thank younova_crystal on November 21st, 2011 07:11 am (UTC)
Of course, your fanfic is really wonderful. I'm re-layouting it and will post it soon. Hope you'll like it. Thanks so much for contributing.

I don't blame anything on you because you're one of a few people who really care for this project.

If you're free could you please beta reading this and choose the interesting/special comment to put on the magazine under discussion section?

You don't need to correct anything, just choose the best ones in your opinion and listed them here. I'm counting on you!
gommyommygommyommy on November 21st, 2011 04:57 pm (UTC)
Thanks for your kind words!

Just a question: Can I choose just specific lines from comments, or does it have to be the whole thing to be included?

Fabula Nova Crystallis: she was therenova_crystal on November 22nd, 2011 06:23 am (UTC)
You totally deserve them :)

It doesn't have to be the whole thing. You can choose specific lines! I believe in your choice.
Thanks.
Fabula Nova Crystallis: rodanova_crystal on November 23rd, 2011 07:44 am (UTC)
Oh yeah, there's something I must ask you for permission. One of my friend read the fanfic and was really fond of it, then she wants to translate Heir to Rainsworth into Vietnamese and publish it along with the Unbirthday Vietnamese version.

Could I have your permission translating it into Vietnamese, pretty please? If you have any extra requirements, we'll be sure to fulfill them. Thank you.

Oh, and we'll credit you as gommyommy, yes?
gommyommy: Adagommyommy on November 23rd, 2011 06:26 pm (UTC)
I would be honored to have my fic translated into Vietnamese! That would be fine with me. And "gommyommy" can still be used as the name.
Fabula Nova Crystallis: her cutenessnova_crystal on November 24th, 2011 04:03 am (UTC)
Oh thank you so much! She'll be very happy!
kinda_mayvelle on November 22nd, 2011 04:27 pm (UTC)
You can use some of my colorings, as long as I'm credited. I'll send you a PM. :)
astra_riverastra_river on November 23rd, 2011 01:12 pm (UTC)
Just giving you the heads up that the grammar needs work. I have read the results pages. It is funny but some sentences are phrased strangely. Also I don't know if it was intentional but on the page with Elliot playing an invisible piano the R in information is missing.

Good Luck! It looks really good so far!
Fabula Nova Crystallis: shamefulnova_crystal on November 23rd, 2011 04:17 pm (UTC)
Thanks. Actually that page didn't PR'd. I was trying to layout the page first.

And the missing R was my mistake, I'll fix it right away. Thanks.
$hionMionlshionmionl on November 23rd, 2011 05:08 pm (UTC)
I need to apologise. I didn't color gidebook pages about a month and still I can't to color the large pages from gidebook another 1-2 week at least. If the business can to wait about 1-2 weeks, so I'll necessarily come back to work when I will be more free. I'm really sorry, just have a lot of work now.
Fabula Nova Crystallis: she was therenova_crystal on November 24th, 2011 04:07 am (UTC)
Don't worry, just focus on your works! We don't need them right away. You contributed so much to the project so we really appreciate it already :)

Good luck! And thanks.

animefan18_69animefan18_69 on November 24th, 2011 01:52 am (UTC)
If you're still in need of fan arts, I have a few (old and not very good though, but I think they're cool *shrugs*)
As for fanfics, well, I have tons that are slow and in progress...... XP And they're all EllyLeo (ehehe)

I'd like to help XDD This is a really cool project you guys are doing.


Fabula Nova Crystallis: ^^nova_crystal on November 24th, 2011 04:08 am (UTC)
Thanks, they might come in handy :)
