I tried writing again and I'm a very mediocre writer, so this is not an impressive update but I tried to do a thing. This is one of my old ideas that I had actually attempted years ago, and I just kind of wanted to try it since it had just been sitting as a draft for years. So, here's the prologue to Searching: [x] It's an Inui DN, and he's my favorite in Seigaku so this will always be a little loved by me. I hope you at least don't hate it lmfao.
Boy are you guys in for a treat when you come by!!! We've finished Small Things!! You can read the last two chapters starting from 5 over by this link: [x] Thanks so much for the support guys. I hope you had a lovely break and happy new year!
Hey guys, wow! I've finally finished coding another chapter of Small Things now that life has temporarily quieted down. Sorry, just a lot of personal things have really affected my work in school and within my own personal circles; so I couldn't really find the time to do anything besides sleep and cry but ANYWAY enough about me, here's chapter four because it's been like half a year oops!! Read it here: [x]
Also, about the lack of a banner and all the little weird things with photos, we'll work on getting that fixed to not be so hideous and stuff eventually AKA me not making promises on anything pertaining to time. Not sure if it's Photobucket thinking it's too good for the world, or if it's thanks to net neutrality; but something will be done!!
Hey y'all, I didn't realize Ribbon had finished the third part of Small Things for quite a while, but I coded it and put it up a few days ago. Forgot to make an announcement for it, but read it here: [x] and command/ctrl+F to "leaves." Hope you like the third part, and I will be coding and uploading chapter 4 within the next two months!
I mean... look, it's been a fairly long time coming. You've probably noticed but the lack of updates, but to be frank with you all, writing dream novels just isn't really our thing anymore. When Princo and I first started this website, we were high school students who loved Prince of Tennis and writing, and who had the free time to write dream novels and post them on the internet. While I don't think we'll ever properly fall out of the Prince of Tennis fandom, Princo and I have expanded our horizons to other things. College, work, social lives, travel, life after college. There have been some massive changes in our lives lately, and you can all see the kind of toll this has taken on Frozen-Time. If you wanted to know, I recently came back from my international hobo half-year, where I spent time in Europe, America (with Princo!) and Japan. Princo has been working her butt off in both her degree and at her job, and is very close to graduating!
We didn't want to quietly die out like a lot of other dream novel sites have, so that's why we're writing this message. We don't intend to remove Frozen-Time from the internet, as we want our dream novels to always be available to be read. We also don't intend to abandon it entirely. I take pride in some of the stories that I've written and still want to finish a lot of the ones that have left some of you hanging, like Small Things, The Secret Chapters and Room Service, among other titles. I'll come back and finish this one day, but I've really been enjoying me life without the extra niggling in the back of my mind to write and publish stuff. Princo and I don't really have the time or interest to do this right now, but who knows? Maybe we'll come back and start it again. Maybe we'll post shorts from time to time. Maybe we'll move on to original stuff one of these days.
You guys have been some of the most amazing readers would could have asked for. When we first started this website we expected to get maybe 2 hits and 0 comments, but I feel like we've gotten to meet some cool people who supported and loved our work. Hearing from you on the Cbox and reading your comments was one of my favourite things on the website. I'm not really sure how to finish this, I guess, but if anyone of you still want to hang around us online, well, Princo will make a post on here eventually, but my tumblr is yumcha-af and my Reddit is stafyqe. I'm on Reddit way more (even though I barely post), but feel free to message me whenever. You can find Princo at neo-chenpobo. I can't quite put my gratitude for you guys into words, but I don't regret doing any of this. I had a blast with Frozen-Time, and excusing the occasional posting of perhaps a new short or a chapter, this is goodbye from us. Thank you so much for everything over the years. We love you! ♥
Hey guys! How are we doing? Sorry it's taken us so long to release something, and sorry it's taken me so long to write this. I've settled into Sweden, and Small Things 3.3 has indeed been edited. It's quite short, so with any luck Princo will have to coded and uploaded soon, but she does have a shit ton of homework so yeah HAHA. It'll... it'll definitely be posted this month though. (I'm so sorry, I suck, I know.) I'm still working on Small Things and I'm not gonna make any promises about finishing it this year because I'm doing a lot of travelling this Christmas, but we'll see. We'll put out AT LEAST another couple of chapter segments before the year's end LOLOLOL I'm so sorry. Hope y'all are doing well!
None of you guys probably particularly care for this update, but I've done the commentary for Signs! Ribbon compiled all the research she did on the Deaf community for
as correct-as-possible writing; and we also link some great resources for sign language. There's also our useless commentary along in it. HAHA. Skim here if you'd like: [x]
Also, Ribbon is having a wonderful time in Sweden, albeit a few rough patches here and there. She is working on the next Small Things update, so hold your horses! We're just also enjoying our time alone/real life, along with our original story.
Wow guys!! The ride is over. We're done with Signs!! Next week we'll have our commentary uploaded, which just is basically our little rant on Signs along with a ton of information/resources on JSL (among other sign languages). Sorry for the late upload; I've actually been... well, busy lol. Okies, well read Signs here: [x]
Hello hello all! We have the new chapter of Signs out! Read it here: [x]
I'm currently in the process of updating the iReaders to make them a little more reader-friendly. I feel like, in particular, those who read on mobiles must have a really hard time getting between chapters while reading some of our longer DNs LOL. If you're having trouble viewing DNs it's probably because I'm in the process of updating them. If you have issues while reading them tomorrow still (e.g. when the new chapter of Signs is released LOL), don't hesitate to let me know!
EDIT: I've updated the iReader for all Shitenhouji DNs, but the process is very tedious, so I'll do all the other novels at a later date HAHAHA.
Hi hi~! I'm uploading the newest chapter on dare I say... the correct August 1st? Anyway, here is the latest Signs chapter: [x] Enjoy and we'll see you guys next week. ♥
The latest chapter of Signs ended up being longer than I thought it would, so we're splitting it up into two parts. I edited the winter releases to reflect this change, that's all LOL.
Uh whoops, uploading on the wrong "Monday" again. It's funny because I code them a week in advance, yet I still manage to upload them late lmao. Sorry about that all, I finish summer classes in 4 weeks though so any...possible summer/winter uploads done post-Small Things 3.3 will be on-time at the very least. ♥ Okay well, read Signs ch 2 here: [x]
I'm a day late in uploading, but chapter one of Signs is up. ♥ It's the 18th in the US though, so I mean in a way I'm on time LOL. Anyway, read it here: [x]
Prologue for Signs is now out! It's pretty short, but don't worry. All the other chapters will be much, much longer. Take a read: [x]—and see you next week!
Spread out the updates for Signs again because Princo is 80% dead and I don't wanna fill the rest of the quota because we still need her alive LOL. The date for chapter zero probably won't change tho so still stay keen for July 11!
Slightly spread out the updates for Signs, just in case Princo dies. She's under a crazy workload and it would be really inconvenient if she died because then I'd have to get new friends LOL. I also added Small Things 3.3 to the list because I realised that we never finished chapter 3, even though the section for August isn't really that long. Here's another teaser of Signs because why not:
"Are you doing Frontiers of Chemistry as well?" I asked, squinting at the board. Sure enough, I saw Shiraishi's name below the heading'Frontiers of Chemistry I'.
"Yes." He said, sounding surprised. "Are you?"
"Yeah." I said.
"Hm." He said. "What other subjects are you doing?"
"Basic Neuropharmacology, Frontiers of Medicinal Chemistry, and Chemistry Experiments." I said. "What about you?"
"Basic Neuropharmacology, Frontiers of Medicinal Chemistry and Sports A." He said, frowning.
Three out of four, I thought. What a turn out.
So I've defined the release dates for the new Shiraishi DN which ended up getting renamed to Signs, since it makes more sense in the context of the story than Language Barrier did LOL. The release dates will probably stay the same, but we may add dates depending on how we end up splitting the chapters. I originally wrote it as a one-shot but if you ever saw the document you'd probably understand why we decided to split it HAHA. Anyway I hope you stay tuned for it! Here's a useless teaser:
"Shiraishi-kun?" I echoed.
"Oh — he's our other part-timer." Satou explained. "He's a good family friend of ours — a very proficient worker."
She put a strong emphasis on the wordvery, and — at the time — I couldn't understand why.
So... yeah. HAHA. Stay tuned!
So Princo and I have just been tidying up a few coding and content errors here and there. We are working on a release, but it's a little long, so I'd say the earliest that you'll be getting it will be in July. I won't put any date down since we all know I have a problem with keeping deadlines, so I'll just leave "July" as my deadline HAHA. It's a Shiraishi DN called Language Barrier. Honestly this winter is gonna be like Shitenhouji Winter because all the DNs I've been working on are for Shitenhouji characters HAHAHA. I KNOW THEY ALREADY HAVE SUCH A LONG SECTION BUT THEY'RE SUCH A FUN SCHOOL TO WRITE HAHA. Anyway, I'll go back to the writing desk now. Stay tuned for more updates!
The weirdest thing happened guys. We have an update—sort of. It's an extra for Reactions, Please! that Ribbon actually had in her folder for quite a bit of time and we never noticed. She rewrote it, and I've coded it for you guys. It's not a long read, but I hope you enjoy since it's been a while. → ♥
I am sincerely sorry that we've been dead for six months without any updates. Uni got really in the way and I only finished my last exam on Friday, so it's not until just now that a window of time has opened up for me. I do have a job that I'll be working over thee next two months of winter break, and I'm also going on exchange after winter break is over (holla Sweden!). I'll be gone for six months and between studying and travelling, bu tI mean I'll still have an internet connection and access to laptop, so I'll still be writing and all that jazz HAHA. So far Princo and I don't have concrete plans because we're still trying to process coherent thoughts post-exams, but I'm making it my goal to first fix up all the old stories that still haven't got working links on the novels page. After we get that working... I'll let you know what's happening. HAHA. Just know that Princo and I aren't dead! ...Yet LOL.
EDIT: The novels page has been updated so that you can now read all of our DNs again! I never got around to updating the iReader layouts for the Shitenhouji stories and for Impulsiveness, but now you can re-read them when you get sick of waiting for us to write new stories/update old ones HAHA.
I have a temporary story for everyone until I can finish #dfc12a. Once upon a time, there was a girl who made too many social promises with her friends over winter break, and then became sick from the cold, germs, and lack of usual copious amounts of lying in bed. She didn't get to be on the computer for an unhealthy amount of time, and therefore didn't get to finish her single dream novel for the first time in probably over a year (or maybe two, who knows). The end. Sorry lol.
Happy belated 2016, guys! In the end we didn't finish Small Things, but I mean I'm still working on it so I hope to have to done before I go back to uni (I mean I still have my summer internship but I'll still do my best to finish it LOL). My New Year's resolution for F-T is to not be a DTT dad LMAO. SO BASICALLY NO PROMISES I CAN'T KEEP. I mean, I kept my promise about finishing DTT (even though the ending made me cringe so badly), but Small Things... /coughs. I have it planned out, I mean, there's no reason I SHOULDN'T have it finished by February. I rearranged the dates for the releases of the new chapters, but bear in mind that those dates aren't exact. There's a very small chance that I'll be release before those official dates, so, uh, yeah. Keep checking back for updates? LMAO I'M SO SORRY WE'RE TERRIBLE HUMAN BEINGS.
So we all thought we'd get a complete Small Things at the end of the year huh! Well, joke's on you! Because we haven't finished all of chapter 3! /insert laugh track/ But at the very least, we have 3.2 of Small Things! I'm so sorry it's not done, but uh—I don't know about Ribbon, but I've actually been having a social life lol. I like 3.2 much more in comparison to other Small Things chapters and parts (maybe because I think 3.2 feels a lot less pretentious), so I hope you guys like it just as much as I do: [x] Also, happy new year! Why don't we all have a total tbt and reread Happy New Year? ;) #formofbullyingRibbon

Merry Christmas y'all! If you're anything like my fam, you'll do nothing all day, so spend a portion of it reading 3.1 of Small Things! [x]
I've changed the schedule a bit to reflect how we're going to release our updates now that we're running so behind (I'm so sorry). Since each chapter is built up of 3 months, like I said in the last update, we'll just be releasing them whenever they're finished. It'll take about 2 days to release a chapter in its entirety, depending on how long each chapter is. BUT UH WOW IT'S ALREADY CHRISTMAS/HANUKKAH OH MY GOD MERRY CHRISTMAS GUYS!! I HOPE YOUR DAYS ARE FILLED WITH CHRISTMAS CHEER AND LOTS OF PRESENTS AND MEDIOCRE HUMAN COMPANY!! And if you don't celebrate Christmas then please abuse the good will of other people on this good day~ If you're in the northern hemisphere I hope the snow is falling and everything is beautiful and you're warm and toasty inside with hot chocolate, and if you're in the southern hemisphere I hope you're having a great open barbecue with your family and go to watch the fireworks in the evening~ Stay tuned for more updates!

We're nearly halfway through the updates that we've promised for 2015! Although we're kind of coming to the point where I'm starting to flake out on you guys. Like, I'm still going to write the stories, but I think I'm going to spread the updates out across the days from now until the end of 2015. At the rate I'm going with writing, I'll probably be uploading a section of a chapter (like, one "month") every day. So today you'll be getting June once I finish LOL. JUST THOUGHT I'D WRITE TO LET YOU KNOW. Thank you guys for being patient with us and our slow progress LOLOL PLEASE STAY WITH US UNTIL THE END OF THE YEAR.
· · · · · ·
Whoo! It's almost time for Christmas, and I have no idea how to segue out of this smoothly so here is chapter two of Small Things: [x] I have no idea if Ribbon will be able to finish chapter three in time, but we can all hope LMAO.
· · · · · ·
Small Things is back with some adjustments! We're now on the countdown to Christmas, whoo! Read chapter 1 here: [x]
· · · · · ·
Don't Trust Them is ahead of schedule, and chapter 4 is done and coded! Read it here: [x]. Just command+F "I asked my" to get to it haha.
I've finished writing DTT 4, but we're a little behind schedule because I only finished today, and Princo needs time to edit and code it. I'm going to go ahead and say that it'll be up tomorrow or the day after, but you'll get it nonetheless. I'm honestly surprised we've managed to go this long without completely flaking out on you guys, but we really wanted to make up for the fact that we haven't updated, like, at all this year LOL. Anyway, on the subject of DTT 4 it was the most painful thing I've written in a very long time (if you know me, you'll know that I can't write cheese for shit). Princo can attest to how angry I was while writing it LOLOLOLOLOL I'm so sorry. Don't even expect anything except vomit-inducing cheese.
· · · · · ·
I'm halfway through editing DTT 3, but it probably won't be completely done until tonight or tomorrow night. I've also made a bit of progress on changing some of the DNs over to the new iReader layout. Also, I've made some changes to the summer release schedule! TSC is going on "???" releases because Small Things is a much high priority for me. I know everyone likes TSC more, but I just really want to finish Small Things because I need something to get me in the Christmas spirit LOL. Also, Princo is trying to (finally LOL) put up a DN, so look forward to #dfc12! Still no word yet on whether it's a one-shot or a chaptered story so I'll get back to you on that LOL.
Edit: Also, I've finished editing DTT 3 now, so now you can read it and it (should be) predominantly error free! Sorry it took so long, guys.
· · · · · ·
It's not midnight yet, so it's still technically December 6, right? LOL. As promised, here's DTT 3: (x). It's a tentative release because, although it's finished and coded, I haven't edited it properly yet LOL. Try not to cry if you see horrific errors, but I'll try to edit it in the morning. I'm also currently in the process of revamping all our old DNs and updating them with the new iReader layout, so you'll slowly see our DNs being made available on the Novels page again. Thank you guys so much for your patience, and I hope you enjoy! DTT 4 should be out some time within the week, and I'll be sure to give you more notice this time if the release is going to be postponed. Also, everybody wish Princo the best of luck for her finals because we don't want her to die any time within the next four days~♥ Thanks so much for your patience, guys, and stay tuned for the next update!
· · · · · ·
I know DTT 3 & 4 is supposed to be out today, but I had two jobs this week and one of them is kind of full time I was sort of dead by Friday and I haven't had any time to write
anything at all. Not to mention Princo is dying because academic season, so DTT will be written, edited and coded by me. In the best case scenario, you guys will have DTT 3 fully
complete and uploaded by tomorrow night, and DTT 4 will be out some time during the next week, but I'm sort of dodging responsibilities so it's very likely that, if you get DTT 4,
you won't get TSC 1 until after the new year. I KNOW, I KNOW, YOU ALL HATE US, BUT WE'LL DO OUR BEST I SWEAR
lol just listen to that irony.
· · · · · ·
(I mean it's not really Friday in Australian time anymore, but let's just pretend it is.) So I mean it took us a while, but here's a new layout. I figured if I was going to go through all the effort to fix the issues that we had with our previous layout, I may as well just make a brand new one that isn't such a pain to maintain. Speaking of maintenance, you may have noticed that we're now an index.php! That's because I started using PHP, because it's a lot less of a pain to maintain the sidebars on all the pages and that sort of junk. Here's a list of changes we made with our new layout:
- As previously mentioned, we're now using .php! Some of the old site files will still be around for a while, so if you type in archive.html instead of archive.php you'll probably get the old layout, but I hope to remove all of the old files as soon as I can.
- We've deleted a reformed a lot of pages. For more information, you can visit the site map to see what's been moved to where.
- We've removed the flag counter from the page, but you can still access it if you want to here! You can also find the link on the Find Us page. This was done because maintenance to the flag counter that we racked up our reader statics on is no longer possible. Some policy of the flag counter website.
- At the moment, novels aren't really accessible unless you have the links saved from our previous layouts. I haven't coded a new reading layout yet, but I'll get to that tomorrow.
- Currently the past layouts section on the archive page doesn't come equipped with images, mostly due to the issues we've been having with our image host, Imageshack. It's been changing around a bunch of direct links, which is making our life a real pain. We may or may not keep it this way. I mean, I love looking at the old layouts because it reminds me of when I was motivated enough to make a new layout even six months, but it's kind of a pain LOL.
As I said, I still haven't got a reading layout up, but I'll get to that as soon as possible. Also, I'm pushing the deadline for Don't Trust Them 3 & 4 to December 5 at the latest, so there's a chance that you'll get them before then. I've been kinda busy this week, and it didn't help that I spontaneously decided to make a layout. I know, I know, you can beat my up as much as you want later. But I'll finish the story if it kills me. Oh, also, please go ahead and let us know what you think of the new layout by casting a vote on the our latest poll! I know it's been a while since we used polls. I'm sorry guys LOL. Stay tuned for more updates!
