Yuri Novels

During my 6 year break from working on manga I began working several Lesbian novels, including switching a few of my yuri manga series to novels. Here are the ones that can be found on DA:

Part One
Chapter one
An alarm clock came to life in the early morning hours of the day, screaming its call for its owner to stop dreaming and enter reality once again. A long slender hand emerged from a cocoon of blankets and gave the alarm a quick smack to shut the infernal machine up. With a moan the arm returned to its cave and pulled the blankets closed in an attempt to block out the intruding day. Within moments the alarm sprung to life yet again to be quickly silenced, this time by the heel of a foot. Struck from its place on the night table the alarm hung mere inches from the floor, saved from a dreadful fall by its cord. The arm s
The Lingerin' Shadows WithinA Shadowlander's Tale: The Lingering Shadows Within
Written by Kathryn K Williams
Note: This is a side story from my Shadowlanders Series, however it is a stand alone short that does not require reading A Shadowlander's Dream in order to understand. For those who have read the Shadowlanders stories it will open up more insight into the mysteries of the shadowlands and the worlds there after. Enjoy.
Chapter One
As I lay upon the icy marble floor with this frosty mist drifting over my head I think to myself. Did the pills really opened the door to this dreadful place or my own mind. Maybe by telling you the tale of how I got where I now lay you will understand my ponderings and watch out for the warning signs that are all about us.
I trudged along the dark downtown street of the small town of London with only the light of the street lamps to guide my way. If you could call that strip of shops, downtown. It comprised of two square blocked of three story high buildings with s

Short Stories:
Short Story: GreenwoodWelcome to Greenwood
Written by Kathryn K Williams
In the seven years that I've lived in Toronto I've rode the subway trains many times and it is my main mode of transportation, aside from my own feet that is. I rarely go near Greenwood station; in fact I've only stepped upon its platform once as far as I can remember. Every time I pass the station however, and read its name written in large green tiles across the walls, I find myself chuckling and saying to myself, "Welcome to Greenwood. Everyone off." Now most would not understand this inside joke of mine unless you have lived in my shoes for a few years, and I would not recommend it. You see I am an avid reader of horror and in my day I have read nearly everything worth reading on the subject. Somewhere during my pursing of the libraries in my home town I discovered something about a place called "Greenwood" however in this case it was referring to an insane asylum in the middle of a forest where only the truly mad are locked away a
Haunted HeartsHaunted Hearts
By Kathryn K Williams
Toni’s shaky hands struck a wooden match against its house and a small flickering flame came to life. Hastily her hands moved flame to a crumpled paper, praying for it to catch.  Reds and yellows hungrily consumed their meal of newspapers and broken down furniture. Their mesmerizing dance sent glimmering streams of light that bounced off hard sad eyes of the nearby teenaged girl. A smile crossed her rain-drenched face, as the flame grew larger with every passing minute, devouring all she had placed within the fireplace hearth and filling the room with the fire’s warming glow.
The pattering of heavy rainfall could be heard overhead and blue streaks of lightning lit up the skies through the cracked windows, but Toni felt safe next to the fireplace of this long forgotten abode. Until this day she feared venturing close to the deserted old house, with its peelings paint and squeaky hinged doors, afraid of what might linger within its

I'm still amused about this, if you are on my tumblr, or read the update to the description to my newest Miku piece you already know this.0

Just after posting Miku encouraging me after getting two near perfects
Miku Encouragement - You Can Do It by The-Yuri-Canon
I managed to get a perfect score for the first time. I know it is silly, but this is a big deal for me really. I really enjoyed Project Diva f and am enjoying Project Diva f 2nd a lot too. For some reason these games really inspire me to draw. I think my creativity this year increased a lot after getting the first game back in October. It's a lot of fun, even if it is the most difficult Rhythm game out there, and addictive as hell. Now they have made it so you can only give characters gifts every day and can be given random requests from them. Also when you pet them on the head there is a heart that slowly grows in the corner that grows and you must stop just before it pops. The new double Stars are really tough and the game upped the difficulty from the other game. I was finally beating Hard Mode songs on Project Diva f and now having troubles with Normal Mode on Project Diva f 2nd... this game is going to kill my hands...

Well, it would appear the rebuild is working out nicely. I tested out the Alpha of Don't Starve together and it works nicely. The only issue I'm having is with my email account... Not sure what the problem is... It won't run the newer game, but that isn't the point. It was to do art and avoid the fact that my laptop was slowly dying on me.

I must say Sai is very nice on this bigger screen. I've been working on a 1024x768 for the past 8 years now and upgrading to a 1680 x 1050 is something else. I think this may solve some of the problems I've been encountering lately. So bright though... then again it needs to be like this to get the best colours.

Well, I'm going to try to get one more page done this week. Hopefully I can get something finished. It isn't taking me as long as it did on my other machine since I don't have to wait as long for things to load and save.

Since there is only a week left until Christmas I might not be able to do another Stream until the new year. Usually I spend the time between Christmas and New Years with my sweetie so only have a week left for art this year. I'll see what I can get done, but can't promise much at this moment.

Time to get back to work. I hope you all have a Safe Holiday!

Journal History

Words from a Kat

RA - No More, please. by The-Yuri-Canon
I am a disabled lesbian survivor who suffers from Complex Post Traumatic Stress Disorder due to a traumatic past that left me hospitalized for a short while. My battles with cPTSD lead me into a world of art and writing as I tried to find ways to express myself better and help myself cope with the madness within. By all accounts I’m considered clinically insane, but I keep myself together with bits of string and sticky tape.

During my struggles to cope with my mental issues I started to create my own small press company, Kat And Neko Manga, starting with my first manga series A Shadowlander’s Dream, which was the tale of a girl lost between the worlds of Dream and Reality. This story gained a small fan following that lead me to writing my first novel Dreaming of Another Day, which is the story of my high school years and how I survived some of the worst times in my life. The story was written to help me get out a dark secret that I’d been baring and help put my thoughts onto paper.

Though these stories I met many others people like myself. They claimed the story helped them in their own recovery and showed them the strength they needed to continue on. Hear this gave me the strength as well as a purpose. I wanted to tell more stories. Wanted to create worlds that people could be absorbed into, characters they could relate to and more then anything help them realize that they were not as alone in this world as we all thought.

It was also through these stories that I met my beautiful and lovely wife, Kimberly theredwolf13 . It is because of her I was able to post many of my stories that I felt ashamed of or embarrassed about. She encouraged me to write more and return to art after a 5 year break away from it all, after a slight mental breakdown and had to shut down the Kat And neko manga site. She is my muse and reason I am alive today, my soulmate and my love. Without her I'd never complete so many novels or start work on my new Yuri manga series Inside OuT

Since being together I’ve returned to my old goals, striving to create works that people can relate to in one form or another. I work much slower then I did all those years ago and my works may not be the best, but I put my all into everything I do and love doing it. I'm glad so many enjoy what I do and thank you all for reading or looking at my works. I hope to have many more tales for you all in the coming future. I may take a month or two off from time to time as I deal with the insanity in my head and life, but one thing is for certain. I love what I do and I'm never going to quit doing it.

Thanks for dropping by my page and reading this

Kat - AKA Shinigami Shimai


Q:Can you help me with a serious issue?
A:If you are seeking help or have questions regarding your sexuality or relationship issues then someone at one of these clubs might be able to help you more then I could, :icongbsta::iconlgbt-on-da::icondapride: If you send me a message regarding this stuff don't get upset with me because I don't have the answers. I'm just human. I simple write and draw these stories, that doesn't make me all knowing when it comes to this stuff.

Other places that possibly can help:
Sexuality and U
Kids Help Phone
Gay youth line

Q: What program do you use for your art?
A: I started out with Photoshop 5.5 back in the day and PS CS2 until recently when I was convinced to work with Sai. I primarily use the pentool for my lines and colouring. You can find my tutorials here:… Which need to be updated soon...

Q: Where did you get your toner from?
A: Art stores mostly. I bought a lot during a sale once years ago. Also during my con years I was giving all kinds of free pages from dealers, one of the perks of being a GoH I guess. *shurgs*

Q: Do you mind if I draw you some fan art?
A: I always enjoy getting fan art for my stories. So send them away.

Q: Will you be attending "Insert con or event here"?
A: I no longer attend conventions or anything like that due to stress issues. Sorry, I don't see myself attention conventions for a long time still.

Q: Is Inside OuT… based on your life?
A: No, it isn't. I did attend a school of the arts and it is similar to the one in Inside OuT, but that is about it. My high school years were much darker and can be read here:…

Q: Why is your online name "Shinigami Shimai"?
A: The name comes from my first manga series A Shadowlander's Dream created back in 97 and refers to nine sisters of death who reside at the edge of reality. I was looking for a unique name that no one else used. That was back in the late 90ss and since then it stuck. The end of June 2012 I finally changed to to The-Yuri-Canon. More about the meaning behind this new name here:…

Q: How long have you been married to your wife?
A: We got married on Jan 29th of 2005.

Q: Why do you draw so much yuri and lesbianism?
A: Because I'm a old lesbian and works from experience and there just isn't enough yuri in the world!

The lesbian girl who is of Japanese decent (at the school I do lunch work), she traded lunch trays with her new part Native American girlfriend (who suits her better) was feeding her as the Japanese decent was feeding her.  So Cute. :aww: :pride:

Those two were talking in the lunch line about loosing there eyesight and the Japanese girl said I would hate it because I could not see the Anime, lesbian too that we watch and the manga, lesbian as well not to mention my panting and manga like style I Draw in. To think there is an artist who is also drawing Yuri out there. I believe one of the stories they mentioned to each other they were watching or reading was "Girlfriends".
