12 Moments 11: #04

This entry is part of 12 Moments in Anime 2011.

#04 is “dragon/prince”… which is the title I’ve given to the untitled story that may in the near future become a manga-style comic drawn by the lovely Sammi herself!

Sammi had a booth in Artist Alley at Anime Expo this past year (2011) and on her table along with a lot of her great work (Piper’s Promise, anyone?) was a little sign that read something like “Like to write BL? Let’s make a comic together!”

Sammi drew an excellent character sketch after chatting
with me about the story for just a couple of hours!

So, I took down her information and after the convention, I emailed her with an email that probably turned out to be relatively awkward, but she looked past that, thankfully, and we met up for tea in August to hash out some ideas. And then I got to writing!

Hahahaha, at least, that’s the idea. I’ve got a basic story in mind, but I haven’t gotten it all down yet, but I’m trying to time it so that she has enough to start illustrating with before the Next Big Convention… or whatever.

I have to make it priority or it will fall to the wayside. (NO! I’m actually excited about this story! I’m not letting that happen.)
