Actually, we have already posted this in our personal journal but we think we should also announce it here
What has happened to half of your pictures!? Ö___Ö
They are on storage and we're really sorry about that!
We want to give our reasons in this journal entry.
We do not
want to leave deviantART
. It's a way too nice here!
However, of course there is a reason for this radical movement.
Many of you do probably know that we have been spending most of our deviantART activity
in our Beyblade/Beylade-OC-story Beyblade cabal
We have actually been working on it with all our hearts. Over the years more and more issues emerged that we did not like anymore, thus we have started re-writing
During the recent re-writing process we were wondering if we were truly contented with "chaining" our characters to the Beyblade series - a story that does not belong to us and that prevents our own story and own characters from completely belonging to us. In the process of working on our fan series we have even been diverging from the canon characters by giving them more "life".
Admittedly, in our story there were the Bladebreakers, the Blitzkrieg Boys, the White Tigers, etc., but eventually in our interpretations and with new designs created by us .
And if you take a look at the interpretations of the canon characters in our fan fictions you notice, that our
interpretations do differ from those interpretations we read in many other fan fictions.
Whatever, something that actually shocks us is that while watching the original series
we had the impression, our
"interpretations" of the characters - whose origins sadly only amount to stereotypes – were much more profound.
This may sound arrogant but indeed we dare to say that we have put some profundity
in these characters and we did try to make the best of the stereotypes.
After this had occurred to us, there was the question "Why?"
in our heads.
As a result we decided to separate our story from the Beyblade series.
No spinning tops, no canon Beyblade stuff.
At the moment we are working on replacing
the roles of the "Beyblade characters" by characters we are creating on our own. However, we keep
all the profundity – since this is something we created ourselves
and not the creators of Beyblade - we put into the canon characters and quasi give it to our "new" own ones.
So, that's the reason for the storages.
Beyblade cabal as fan series
does no longer exist..
For those who actually liked the story this should be no awful shock
, since they will recognise
the story in its revised form.
The time for the continuation
We are intensively working on it
What can the readers expect now?
We hope not to have scared you off!
This change does probably sound very radical to you readers, but we can ensure that you will be able to identify easily
with the new version of or series, in so far you did like the fan series
No, we even want to say this series is going to be even much better
because we can do everything with our fantasies now without being bound to canon aspects.
Concerning the readers on deviantART
who only know the old version of the doujinshi and some illustrations - which is a sad circumstance - we hope you did not only like what you have seen of our OCs (which unfortunately was not really much) because of the association with Beyblade characters and we would be very happy if your interest in the story and the characters would continue.
If you have any concerns or questions
you can PM
We delight in answering you!
Our readers became important to us and we do not want to lose you because of that!
If you like the story and/or the characters we would ask you just to have trust
in us and and to give us some time
