Hello everyone on this LJ, I apologize for being basically AWOL for like ... monthssssss ... :|a Part of it is certainly because of Plurk, because micro-blogging is a lot easier and feels a lot more interactive than journals. ON THE OTHER HAND, journals are super-handy for when I have longer thought-out rants and not just the I AM HAVING OPINIONS AND I WILL TELL THEM!!

That is not to say I haven't been productive, though, oh no. I have been busy. I have been all over the place. I have done MANY THINGS. I make it sound like I am talking myself up, but man it sure hella felt like a lot of things.


- I participated in [livejournal.com profile] springkink this time around (with eighteen fics, none of them late hell yeah \o/)

- I wrote a story for the next [livejournal.com profile] imaginarybeasts, which I have sent off

- I have written (together with [livejournal.com profile] harukami) the first two chapters of a supernatural harem series, [livejournal.com profile] lovesexgrave which won't see the main story posting until April, but we'll be posting RELATED STUFF every day this month. We're really excited about this, guys, these are characters we've had kicking around for at least three years, and they are FINALLY GOING SOMEWHERE. DOING SOMEONETHING. IT'S PRETTY COOL.

- I started (AND FINISHED) a project for Royal Archivist which by the way guys I am also still kind of ridic excited for. With luck THINGS AND STUFF will happen and it will be grand. I am hoping for grand. I will believe in the best!

All I have left is my [livejournal.com profile] bb_shousetsu piece, for which I generally know what I am doing, I just need to get started. If worst comes to it, I figure I will be able to just write on the plane when I fly back to Seattle tomorrow. The main reason I got the RA thing done is because I'm visiting my parents in Austin for the week. hrr hrr.

So basically this is fair warning that over the next couple of weeks my lj is going to be FLOODED WITH CONTENT. FANFIC CONTENT. I think the majority of you who friended me did so for my fic, though I admit that a lot of it is also for pairings/series/etc that I've never written before. FEEL FREE TO IGNORE ME.

* Got a plurk! Promptly forgot Twitter existed. Sorry, y'all. :B I do a lot of microblogging there and am rather enamored.

* Got [livejournal.com profile] bishopped over at [livejournal.com profile] campfuckudie! Have hit my personal limit for RP and feel pretty good about having no other desires for it ever. Yeay.

* Came to a personal revelation about myself (in fact, I am a super-contrary person despite having always thought of myself as a very "whatevs |D" type, in that 9.999 times out of 10, the harder you push something at me, the more I'm just like :\a that's nice :\a APPARENTLY I HAVE TO BE SUBTLY COURTED, and who wants to waste that much time \o/) and came to peace with it. Everything works out in the end.

* An actually fairly accurate representation of myself, since they didn't have any necklaces that actually look like the one I wear.

* I feel like I'm slowly forgetting how to write fanfic. :|a I still want to, a lot, but it all keeps getting done in short bursts and stops, whereas my original fiction is like \:D/ derp derp. I still can't write novels worth anything, but short stories and novella-esque lengths seem to be great for me.

Now I am going to talk about MONEY and STUFF and cutting it because lol. )

After all that tl;dr I have determined I really want to write fusion fandom fic, when I want to write fic, but I'm not sure if I even have a direction after that, except maybe I want to write all the diece things and only two other people on LJ care. :B I'M SORRY EVERYONE WHO EXPECTED BETTER OF THIS JOURNAL, PROBABLY YOU SHOULD ABANDON SHIP NOW.
1766 words
D.Gray-man/07-Ghost FUSION crossover; minor implied spoilers for 07G throughout.
I'm kind of sorry for this, guys.

deal with the devil )
HA HA HA yeah about that whole "consecutively talking about writing thing"! TWO DAYS IN (technically) and I failed. :'D I meant to do the answers on my lunch break, but I'd get distracted by other things. (Not necessarily eating, though FoodGawker is my favorite lunchtime reading, kya. WHO NEEDS COOKBOOKS. Well, okay, they're nice but that's not the point.)


2. How many characters do you have? Do you prefer males or females?

... lol. A-are we really supposed to count? HOW DO ONES YOU DEVELOPED WITH SOMEONE ELSE FACTOR IN? I mean in sheer raw tallies, even without co-creations, the number is A Lot. Scientifically, A Lot. Give me a few more weeks and one of my old textbooks and I could make it sound a lot more pretentiously scientific than that.

I prefer writing/developing female characters! Actually, to be entirely fair, I like sets, matched--a lot of my stories tend to have a pair of main characters, matched male and female, but never in a romantic sense. One of those things I have (harkening back to what I said about urban fantasy the other day) is that I really enjoy platonic male-female relationships, and friendships always trump romance in a lot of things I write. Sometimes this is not the case; hilariously, whenever I have two characters of the same gender as the main protagonists of a story, male OR female, they usually end up romantically involved versus when they're opposite genders. TRIVIA THAT IS BRAND NEW EVEN TO ME. Ultimately in stand-alone one shot stories, though--or things where there's only one central character--my main character is female 90% of the time.

Part of me suspects it comes as response to the lack of female characters I found interesting in a lot of stuff I enjoyed when I was younger (whether or not these were actually good strong characters that I appreciate now that I am older, at the time I was such a typical fanbrat)--it was very much a case of, "well, if I can't FIND any that I like, I will MAKE ones instead!" AND PERHAPS IT IS MY BIAS BUT MOST OF THEM DID NOT TURN OUT TO BE MARY SUES. The ones that were too-perfect were either left behind, or revisited and revamped to make them less of the "always right, always funny, always [x] positive trait." Some of them retain aspects, but then, I have come to think that even the Mary Sue can become an interesting and viable character, as long as the story is told right and handled well. Execution is very often make or break, when it comes to what I personally want out of something, whether as a creator or as a spectator.

Man, I need to start saving up faster for the new computer, the lack of a properly-functioning finicky keyboard at home versus the one I use at work is so different, I don't really even want to go for huge blocks of text when I'm at home. Baww. ;o;

all the questions )

Hrrrrrrr the 4th of July weekend was really good for me, in terms of RECHARGING! In that I slept a lot (including sleeping in later on Monday than I have in literally years) and did nothing more strenuous than sit around in the cold and wet waiting for fireworks. And grocery shopping; it is possibly a little sad, how much I genuinely enjoy looking at and selecting and buying food. :|a

ON THE OTHER HAND, with Life and the move and everything, I've really sort of fallen behind and given up on the whole writing thing, which is really bad. :[ I believe creativity is as much like a muscle as anything in my physical body, and my personal experience has always loaned itself to that--the more I write, the better I feel about what I've written, and the less likely I am to stare at the screen going "durrrr" with a face like this: :B I tried to write some stuff the other night and it felt so much like pulling teeth: things felt awkward and clunky, and my ambition outstripped my feelings about my ability. I'm debating on whether I should try a different schedule and see if that helps, though in my heart I know any changes I make will not really finalize and take until [livejournal.com profile] rinkhals moves in. :|a

SO I AM GOING TO JUST KICK MYSELF A LOT, and I am going to steal the 30 Days of Writing Meme from [livejournal.com profile] nayami and hope that actually talking about writing (especially consistently for a month) will guilt me into doing it again. And once I get started, I will keep going, and then I'll hit a point where it's not like wall+head=OTP.

Okay, so a lot of people know this already at this point, but the low-down is: I have made my first home purchase.

Which is to say that after talking with my parents, crunching numbers (and crunching numbers and crunching numbers, as poor [livejournal.com profile] enough_space will tell you) and freaking out and negotiating and thinking long and hard, I have officially purchased a condo. :B The closing date isn't until June 7th, THINGS COULD STILL GO WRONG!! but as it is, I've been approved for the loan and have recieved the official CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR PURCHASE mail. In totally boring grown-up things, part of the loan application process includes a credit check, and I recieved a copy of it. It was an extremely pleasant surprise, as I knew my credit was good, but I didn't realize it was actually, in fact, excellent. OKAY I AM DONE BRAGGING ABOUT THAT, I was just proud of me. :(

This also means that I will be probably cutting back a lot on going out and/or shopping in the next three months, as I will need a) time to pack and clean and b) time for my finances to stabilize again. I'm also pretty much in a state of QUASI-HIATUS, so while I'll be around on gchat and still around-around during the day when I'm at work, PM me in the evenings at your own risk, because I will yell about how much I hate packing/cleaning and/or about NUMBERS!! at you. In ridiculously nerdy number-crunching ways, I have written up an entire spreadsheet that plans for various contingencies where I can input my monthly income at any given time and see where I stand re: payments and bills. I, I think I really enjoy playing with numbers and probability, does this mean I should have become an accountant? (Note: I don't actually know entirely what an accountant does beyond what a preliminary google search tells me.)


FUNNY THING IS, I DON'T REALLY FEEL TOO DIFFERENT FROM BEFORE pee ess I still intend to see Iron Man 2 tonight kyaaa kyaa RDJ kyaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa.

Also maybe I will allow myself to get a banh mi this weekend because I've been madly craving one. Madly. :B

Pee Pee Ess: WHY DID MY FRIENDS-OF LIST GO UP? I AM REALLY BORING THESE DAYS. OH MY GOD I FEEL LIKE I SHOULD APOLOGIZE TO EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOU, even the ones that have me on the only-occasionally-read filter. ;A; Ilu all, I am just super-bad at showing my appreciation these days especially. 8(

So, [livejournal.com profile] rivendellrose took some photos at the Christmas party we had with friends a few weeks ago. I am mostly resharing these because OMG WE MADE ~ART~.

These are not dialup-safe, btw.

Dear flist:

If you somehow found yourself in medieval Translyvania in a castle, and found roast beef in the walls, would you eat it?*


* Corollary: It is a castle full of monsters.**
** Corollary x2: You will probably have to fight these monsters off.***
*** Corollary x3: This probably isn't because you're in a video game.****
**** Corollary x4: Then again, this is because [livejournal.com profile] harukami and I were talking, so it may very well be a video game thing.
