Sana and Sonokata's eyes would be different, however. Sonokata's eyes are more... deadpan, if you catch my drift. I would imagine Sana's eyes more rounded, like Kyoko. Also, Sana's hair is dark brown, but the hairstyle would really be the same as Sonokata's.
Anyway, as I continued writing, I realised that Sana's personality was taking more form (obviously) and suddenly, I couldn't see Sana in Sonokata anymore. If you ask me now, I'm not very sure how Sana looks. Maybe someday I should attempt to draw the above with Kyoko's eyes and see if it all makes sense, haha.
Alright, chapter 12, here we go!
1. Who the heck is Sawada?
To those who have been wondering about that, shame on you because it is Tsuna!
Most of the characters call Tsuna as Tsuna but that’s because Tsuna gives people the feeling that they could call him that, I suppose. Sana is just being cautious and not overly friendly towards someone whom she is not close with. Even though almost everyone calls him Tsuna, but Sana would still call him Sawada.
This was a recent decision of mine, in light of wanting to be more realistic in my writing. But I know I completely botched my first few chapters on this so if you see Sana referring to Tsuna as Tsuna in the previous chapters, please be forgiving!
2. Not enough Gokudera in your fanfic
Gokudera is a character that I have mixed feelings about. The character I fangirl about is obviously Yamamoto, but Gokudera is seriously handsome. However, I'm not a fan of his personality. The gap is not very pleasant in my opinion. So whenever I encounter Gokudera in the manga, I would think, "Gosh, he's so handsome" but not much else after that.
Amano Akira sensei is seriously good in her drawing. Why do I say that? Usually in manga, there would be a specific character, let's just say for example the main character, that has been set that he would be handsome. You see the other characters comment that it is so, etc etc. The author puts in so much build up to the character's looks that when he appears, I end up thinking to myself, "Yeah he's handsome, but all of the characters are not bad-looking too. It's just that the author puts in more effort in the main character so the brush strokes are more refined."
I would show you an example, but I'm lazy, hehe.
I feel that with "Katekyo Hitman Reborn", I actually get that "Wow, everyone is good looking but Gokudera is one level higher." (At least, it is for me. I know that the fanbase's favourites are Mukuro and Hibari. Ah well.)
I need THAT KIND of comparison, not the "let's-make-everyone-average-looking-so-that-this-handsome-character-stands-out-more". Amano sensei does not really slacken off with the other characters as well. EVERYONE is good-looking, dammit!
So unfortunately, even though I like Yamamoto Takeshi, my eyes always travel to Gokudera whenever there is a group photo of all of them. *shrugs*
At long last, Oka has a first name! His full name is Oka Itsuki. If you didn’t catch him before, he appeared once in Chapter 5. I’m starting to like him more and more. Initially, he was just meant to appear in Chapter 5, but I thought that it would be much nicer to show that Sana has friendships with people apart from Yamamoto!
Also, I like the gap in his character – rough and crude on the outside, but actually sensitive and mature beyond his age. It's probably cliche, I know. And it's weird that I say that I like this character gap but not the character gap portrayed by Gokudera. In fact, I would think that Oka would be the kind of person that Hana would like, if not for the fact that Oka really looks like the stereotypical middle-school monkey boy. Therefore, there is no way Hana would ever be attracted to him, haha. Poor guy.
Here are some more fun facts about Oka (which may never appear in the actual story) if you are still interested. As mentioned in Chapter 5, he is in the track and field team. He is mainly a marathon runner, but he can be quite fast too. During the Sports Meet in Chapter 5, Yamamoto was first and Oka was third. He has been rather sore about Yamamoto ever since, blaming it on his long legs.
4. Sana is sporty
Even though Sana is rather short, she can jump very high. Truthfully, I’d forgotten about this trait of hers completely, until I was revisiting Chapter 5 to look through some scenes with Oka in it. I forgot that she did really well in high jump during Sports Meet, haha. It's strange that she would be able to jump so high because she was a baseball player. I guess I need to remember this part of Sana, sigh.
Anyway, now that I'm more committed to the details of the story, I'm enjoying writing this a lot more. Unlike previous stories like "I Want To Be A Turk!", I had a rather hard time with this fanfic and at one point in time, I was quite ready to end the fic quickly and move on. However, I'll talk about it when it's time. Right now, I'm quite pumped and to finish this story, even though there are many many chapters ahead of me! Gah!
