5/22/12 12:14 am - clockwork42 - Onmyoji-Related Work
I've been lurking here for a few years now and really love what's been here, but I just found something out that is so nifty I needed to sign up for an LJ just to post about it.
I thought I'd let you know that there are apparently projects in the works to get some Onmyodo-related fiction translated into English and actually published. Unfortunately, I'm not talking about the Onmyoji novels by Yumemakura Baku-sama. However, I AM talking about the twelve-volume series called "Teito Monogatari" by Aramata Hiroshi.
Aramata wrote these novels in the 80s when he worked for the Heibonsha Encyclopedia. He was very interested in Japanese esotericism (especially esoteric Buddhism and Onmyodo) and wrote these novels as a sort of primer to teach the Japanese people about their own esoteric customs and heritage.
And yes. It is 100% Aramata's fault that Yumemakura Baku got the idea to write his wonderful Onmyoji series. Aramata is credited for starting the "Seimei boom" that is still arguably going on in Japan at present.
I know that the novels do mention Abe no Seimei, but they take place during the Taisho period (pre-World War II), so Seimei himself is not an actual character in them.
If you are interested in supporting this translation project, it seems like they have a facebook page that you can "Like." It can be found here: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Translate-TEITO-MONOGATARI-into-English/122760147810664
Based on the comments, it looks like they want to prove to a publisher that 1,000 people would be interested in buying Teito Monogatari if it were translated. Unfortunately, only 61 people "Like" it so far. I thought that since this was a community specific to Onmyoji, it was worth posting about here. My apologies if I was incorrect and this doesn't belong here.
Either way, if we can prove there is enough interest and Teito Monogatari DOES get translated in English and sells well, then perhaps it would be easy to convince the same publisher to translate Yumemakura-sama's Onmyoji novels.
Thanks for hearing me out. Again, my apologies if this post does not belong here. I do not mean to spam the board.
P.S. -- If you're interested in helping get Teito Monogatari translated, feel free to spread the word and get more people to Like the page. :-)

Pun intended ;)
Hello eveeryone, it's been a while since I posted here. Lately, my excitement with this fandom was revived, I read every single fanfic I could find and decided to produce some more 8)
Title: The Tail of Secrets
Warnings: angst, fluff, s&m motifs
Summary: Seimei is forcefully turned into a fox, and Hiromasa's task is to look after him and eventually bring him back.
Many years ago, I wrote a fanfic with a similar basic idea, but it was much shorter and very different, and anyway, I hope my writing skills've imporved since then ;)
( On with the taleCollapse )

Hello, I'm a long-time lurker and I've been searching awhile for this one fic. I forget how the situation starts, but Hiromasa ends up with one of Seimei shikigami dolls for x-rated purposes. The doll is at first a woman and then Seimei. Hiromasa doesn't know that the doll!Seimei is actually the real person. I know that's not a lot to go on but if anyone could point me to it, I would be very grateful. Thanks so much!
