....I'm STILL getting harped about "When is [this episode] coming?" or "It's been a year!!! Are they done yet?!" or getting rather lacking suggestions for episodes....
Look... It's been more than a year... it's been more than a DECADE since I started NAoStH, and it STILL hasn't been finished, nor will it ever will be. The only reason I still keep it around is for nostalgic reasons. But the more I keep it around, the more the youngin's that There aren't going to be "new" episodes, nor the return of old ones that were written when I was once a 14-year old weeabo, so yeah, they're in DESPERATE need of rewrites....
The reason I haven't worked on it, or anything NAoStH-related is because I started it when I was a YOUNG TEENAGER. I'm going onto 30 now, and I really need to move onto better things than an old, cruddy Sonic cartoon, which don't get me wrong I'll ALWAYS adore it to death, but it is what it is... an old cartoon from the 90's. I was a kid back then when I made my "great" project, but because I was a kid myself, target audience tended to be just that: Kids. Nowadays it's seems it's just the young folks interested, and naive enough to believe this is actually going somewhere...
Bottom line, the reason I haven't dedicated myself to NAoStH is because I've moved on to bigger, better things. I am writing a novel that I finished, just need to beta read over and over. I'm working on TWO screenplays (one's collecting dust ATM, however...) and I'm shuffling ideas for a graphic novel.
I also have a job. And I'm STILL trying to make that move to Maryland.
And I'd rather work on one-and-done fancomics
If NAoStH were ever to return, it will more or less be a shrine dedicated to the old days. If someone happens to come along, sees it, and says, "Hey I've got an idea!" and throws me this awesome pitch, or even better, a WHOLE episode that could fit into the world of NAoStH, sure, I'll stick it in!
But the more youngins' I see that go, "Here's an episode idea! Robotnik kidnaps Tails! Can Sonic save him?" or "Will we see the episodes anytime soon?" to which I constantly answer, "I don't know, soon I hope!" the more I just want to get rid of this headache.
I'm closing the NAoStH group. Because it's useless to keep it up if I'm not going to do anything new with it anytime soon. May or may not bring it back to the web, and if I do, like I said, a more-or-less shrine than a project, alongside a shrine to the original AoStH show. It all depends if I have the time (or dedication) for it.
If you are wondering, "Can't you just let somebody else take it over for you?!" The answer to that is "No." I may not have the time for NAoStH anymore, but it's still precious enough that I don't want just ANYBODY to take it and steer it into a direction I'd rather not see it go... Think of "Dragon Ball Z" when Akira Toriyama stopped writing the manga, but allowed TOEI to make "Dragon Ball GT". Understand that shipwreck?
So I'm sorry to get your hopes up. But it's better to let you know now than drag you all along with the idea that this project will actually go somewhere.
"Sonic Christmas Blast" will continue. I'm REALLY TRYING HARD to get the next part done by Christmas, while at the same time, gathering my thoughts to the new fancomic I plan to write and draw. You can find it all in my personal gallery.
I'll leave this group open until Sunday night. You have until then to save anything that's NAoStH-exclusive to your computer.
