My To-Do List & Tags Post
Naruto
Things That Might Get Done
+Ebisu/Iruka ("Conversations of the Underappreciated," canon) (concepting done, in which they drink a lot and Ebisu wonders what the hell he's supposed to do with the ash tray Konohamaru gave him when he doesn't smoke)
Things That Will Get Done
+Naruto m-preg fic ("No One Saw This Coming," sort of canon) (11,774 words/Chapters 1-4 done, in which I make fun of the genre by taking it as seriously as possible. Sort of. Not really)
+Rewrite "A Fox and a Shark Walk into a Bar" (Chapters 1-30 rewritten, through Chapter 8 on the real editing)
+Kidoumaru/Sasuke ("Jury-Rigged," cyberpunk A/U) (~500 words down, in which Kidoumaru is a hacker who has about as much claim to humanity as a toaster and Sasuke deals with prejudices he only wishes he had)
+Kisame-centric, Kisame/Itachi UST ("Contradicting Something Something," canon) (concepting done, in which Kisame realizes something important, finds out he was wrong anyway too late for it to matter, and wishes the brother of his best friend/worst enemy/guy he fucked over inadvertantly would figure out his priorities already)

Kingdom Hearts
+Riku/Xehanort's Heartless ("Charcoal Dawning," canon) (~1,100 words down, in which Riku has the upper hand and finds out that sometimes one's own darkness is more comfortable than someone else's light)
+Ensemble, Braig-centric ("Pirates!," A/U) (~3,000 words down, in which Braig leaves Radiant Garden before anything heart related happens and what would have been Organization XIII decides to become pirates instead, just because)

Soul Nomad & the World Eaters
+Thorndyke/Juno ("Beautiful is the Sea," canon for the good ending of the Demon Path) (~3,700 words of prep done, story not yet begun; in which in the year 801 of the Tamaitian Age, peace finally comes, despite everything)

Title: That Time with the Grenades
Characters: Roy Mustang, Riza Hawkeye
Word Count: ~1,800
Rating: PG-13
Genre: Action-Adventure
Warnings (including spoilers): Spoilers for the end of the Fullmetal Alchemist manga. Violence, language
Synopsis: Mustang and Hawkeye get a little more trouble than they bargained for when a scouting mission goes south... which isn't to say it's more than they can handle.
Notes: Written for yhlee as the winning bid for my 'Help the Project' offer.

Well, at least I have the comfort of knowing I've retained my good looksCollapse )

HelpTheProject
Following beckyh2112's example, I figured there was no better way to get myself motivated to write something than charity. Quoting directly from the site:

---

The Virginia Avenue Project mentors Los Angeles children and teenagers, teaching classes in theatre and other arts, tutoring them in academics, and partnering with them to create and perform original plays.

100% of participating children graduate from high school. 100% complete high school, 95% go to college and 98% are the first in their family to do so.

As grants for arts and education have been cut, we are in danger of losing our centerpiece program, the One-on-Ones, in which short plays are specially written for each kid to act in with a professional actor. We take them to summer camp to rehearse, then return to Los Angeles to put on a show.

This program changes kids’ lives... and it’s not happening this year unless we can raise $15,000 by mid-March.

---

It sounded like a more than worthy cause, so I put up a fanfic auction here:
http://community.livejournal.com/helptheproject/7499.html

The list of fandoms I wrote I was willing to write in is a little restrictive, and you who follow my journal know my writing tastes pretty well. If you want to bid and have a request in another fandom you think I would like to write, feel free to shoot it my way. Also, if there is some fanfic I've written you really want to see continued--even if I said it was completed or has been on hiatus for ages--(*coughcough*Fox and Shark*coughcough*) that is also an option. This is for charity after all.

Some drabbles
Hi! I'm not dead. It occurred to me a few days ago that I still had some prompts left from my drabble prompt list a year ago that I want to get done, so I decided to work on them. Unbeknownst to me, three of them were already done and I just hadn't gotten around to posting them, so here they are. The last one is a bit I just did in the past two days.

Series: Naruto
Character(s): Tayuya and Kidoumaru
Prompt: atonement, burning
Author’s Note: For monoshiri. In which I kind of fail at the prompt, but hell, at least it’s about the right characters. That’s something, right? Anyway, A/U and spoilers for manga chapters that came out about two years ago.
Word Count: ~1,200
It had taken something less than three days of living as civilians for Kidoumaru to conclude they made terrible civiliansCollapse )

Series: Kingdom Hearts and Final Fantasy: Advent Children
Character(s): Riku and Kadaj
Prompt: living your life in the hero’s shadow
Author’s Note: For chibirisuchan. A really late birthday present (which is why she gets three four; the other one will come later). This got a little rambly and off-topic, which is okay, but I also tried to write Kadaj as he might be if Jenova had never been in his head to reflect this being Kingdom Hearts-verse as opposed to Advent Children-verse, so he’s… erm… not normal, exactly, but less desperate and more seventeen.
Word Count: ~1,700
Riku was doing his absolute best (which was pretty damn good under most circumstances) to navigate his way through the wonderful new world of alcohol consumptionCollapse )

Series: Kingdom Hearts and Final Fantasy VII
Character(s): Axel and Reno
Prompt: meeting the partner
Author’s Note: For chibirisuchan. A really late birthday present (which is why she gets three four; the other one will come later).
Word Count: ~400
Reno stared up at the man who was supposed to be his new partner. “Kind of / short, aren’t you?” The rookie’s hands twitched on his keyblades. “Kind of skinny, aren’t you?” Axel glared. He was sensitive about his weight.Collapse )

Series: Kingdom Hearts and Final Fantasy VII
Character(s): Axel and Reno
Prompt: warning labels
Author’s Note: For chibirisuchan. A really late birthday present (which is why she gets three four; the other one will come later).
Word Count: ~1,100
“‘Flammable. Keep out of reach of children’,” Reno recited carefully, squinting in the poor light at the label on the side of the container. Then he grinned. “Good thing I can’t read.”Collapse )

My Flist is Full of Fail
I know it’s been forever since I’ve posted anything, but there are still 75+ of you who have me friended. Why, in 48 hours, could only three of you come up with prompts? Seriously. *sigh* Well, at least the three prompts I did get were diverse and interesting.

That being said, I am also full of fail for taking so long with these prompts, but I am actually quite pleased with them (though less so with the Naruto one—sorry, know_your_story).


Fandom: Bleach
Characters: Orihime, Aizen
Prompt: insanity, compassion
Prompter: satora_chan
Title: I’ll See You Again Tomorrow, Orihime-san
Word Count: 829
Most people don’t mix fruit and mustard, Orihime-sanCollapse )

Fandom: Naruto
Characters: Kisame, Itachi
Prompt: conversation, eclipse
Prompter: know_your_story
Title: The Bleeding Time
Word Count: 203
Author’s Note: Based on recent Naruto weirdness, I actually had another idea for Kisame/Itachi that would reflect the new information we’ve learned about them, but I quickly realized that would be much longer than a drabble and wouldn’t be focused on that pairing anyway, so I dropped the idea.
Somewhere, a kid was sobbing, asking his mother why the sun had gone outCollapse )

Fandom: Final Fantasy XII
Characters: Larsa, Gabranth
Prompt: birds, leaves
Prompter: midnightdiddle
Title: Landis Had Been Beautiful In Autumn
Word Count: 381
Noah was unable to stop himself from feeling slightly pleased that he had remembered that bit of triviaCollapse )

Eh, it's been a while.
Time for drabble prompts, because I haven't written in ages and feel kind of rusty.

Any fandom I've ever written is fair game except for Heroes because I only followed the canon for about five minutes, and Avatar because I don't feel like it.

Here's the available list:
-Bleach (anyone except the Vaizard)
-Final Fantasy X (Auron)
-Final Fantasy VII (anyone, though I'm most comfortable with the clone triplets)
-Final Fantasy XII (anyone)
-Fullmetal Alchemist (anime or manga, specify which you want; anyone who isn't the core military is good, though you might have to refresh my memory about who everyone is)
-Kingdom Hearts (I and II; anyone, but you'll have the best luck with the Organization, Riku, and Heartless!Ansem)
-Naruto (anyone, but you know who I like)
-Rurouni Kenshin (Saitou, Shishio, Kenshin [preferably pre-light and joy], and anyone you feel like putting with these guys)
-Samurai Champloo (the core three)

The restrictions are thus: two characters (preferably from the same fandom, but with stuff like Kingdom Hearts on the list it's hard to make that a hard and fast rule), I get to choose whether to pair them up or not, and two words that will act as my prompt. I don't care if the words are related.

Lengths will be variable, probably anywhere from a sentence to 1,500 words or thereabouts; it will depend. You have 24 (48, because I want more requests than three) hours to make a request, after that I'll only take 'em if they ping me like woah. So if you want something written, now is the time to ask.

Surprise, surprise
For the first time in ages, I have started looking at A Fox and a Shark Walk into a Bar again. I figured I had (finally!) put enough distance between myself and the last time I tried to revise it to have another go at rewriting the story. So far it's going pretty well. I'm about halfway through Chapter 9 (of 30), and since I'm free from any responsibility until next Monday, I think I might just push through and get it all rewritten by then. I still have my notes for Chapters 31, 32, and 33 as well, so who knows. You might even see a chapter or two by the end of the summer.

As I've been saying for ages, I haven't really given up on it. It was just that school and friends distracted me and I was really, really burnt out on the whole thing. Hopefully some people are still interested in that epic of mine. I know it's been a long time since there has been an update, and I still don't know if I'll ever finish it, but it isn't over yet.

Edit: Okay, nevermind. Turns out I start work on Thursday, so the edits should take longer than I thought. Expected them posted the end of next weekend, not the end of this one.

Old Springkink Stuff
These are the springkink prompts I signed up to write way back. I actually was supposed to get two more done, but then I took so long that I lost interest. Variable quality.

And Here They AreCollapse )

It has occurred to me lately that I am a lazy bastard, one indicator being this entry: I've forgotten how to cut things and am too lazy to look up how. I haven't posted anything on this journal in months, which is silly, because I may have written next to nothing, but that next to nothing I still haven't linked to here. *cough cough* Anyway. For those of you who have despaired of me, or thought I've died (and I know you're out there), I promise I'll be linking you to ten or so short fics within the next week. Maybe a little more, but only a little bit more, because weekends really are there for a reason.

It's sad, isn't it, that I actually haven't given up on any of the fics on my to-do list, but am actually just too damn exhausted by the thought of *gasp* actually sitting down and writing to do anything about it? Really, kind of lame. *is emo for a while* But fic is in progress, sort of, not the least of which is one of my most nonsensical ideas to date (i.e. Kidoumaru/Sasuke cyberpunk AU), so yeah, I'm not dead. Just slightly comatose.

Doctor Who: Master/Doctor Massive Recs Post
Been a while since I've posted, hasn't it? I have been writing, but haven't posted links because I'm lazy like that. I don't do summaries, because those are work. I do quotes, though. Um. All of this is consensual stuff, in one way or another (except for the R pic, and even then it's questionable; it could be a roleplaying session for all I know) because I'm not really fond of Master/Doctor non-con, or even dub-con, because the last two Time Lords are more fun when they're on vaguely equal footing. Well, some of sarkywoman's stuff is sort of dubious, but only a minority, and it's labeled pretty well.

Also, if you have any brilliant Master/Doctor fics stored in your favorites, it'd be great if you'd give me a link. I can't get enough of them, it seems.

Because I Love This PairingCollapse )

Ganked from harukami:

Ask me about my fic--something I wrote, character, plotline, even a really short commentary--and I'll give you an explanation, snippet, or something. Kind of like a dvd commentary, but shorter and faster.

All of you who have heard about the LJ deleting controversy and think it's a load of shit, sign up with this community: http://community.livejournal.com/fandom_counts/profile

In fact, even if you don't think it's shit, sign up. If you're reading this journal, you're in fandom and this affects you. 'nuff said.

Disclaimer: Above command is not meant to be bossy and irritating in any way. What's happening is just pissing me off. Hell, I'm pretty damn vanilla as far as my writing goes and even I've written stuff that technically qualifies as incest and pedophilia (Kadaj/Loz/Yazoo & Naruto/Orochimaru, anyone?), even if I can't write graphic stuff to save my life. This deleting communities and journals because of their listed interests is shit.

Meme stolen from absolutely everyone: Name a character and I'll tell you three (or more) facts about them from my own personal headcanon.

Edit: Yout best bet is probably Naruto, considering I write enough for that fandom that I actually have a bunch of piddling stuff to say about the characters. However, if you want someone from another fandom, that's cool too. Just don't expect as much.

Title: Wardrobe Options
Pairing: Long Feng, Azula
Word Count: 587
Rating: PG-13
Genre: A/U, General
Warnings (including spoilers): Implied spoilers for the second season finale of Avatar: The Last Airbender, subtext
Synopsis: Drabble set in the same universe as A Compass That Doesn't Point North dealing with Long Feng's new wardrobe. Seriously.

There was no point in cultivating an eye for fashion when uniforms dictated one's wardrobeCollapse )

Meme stolen from horses-and-men: OKAY NOW YOU ASK ME FANDOM STUFF. ALL QUESTIONS ALLOWED EXCEPT ONES ABOUT THE SEX, WHICH YOU SHOULD KNOW IS GOOD.

1. Comment in this post with a pairing, a character, or a threesome.
2. I shall write you back a paragraph explaining what I think about it (good, bad, indifferent) and why.
3. Let's argue about it--uh, actually, let's not. More like, let's be mutually retarded and hysterical about it. That's more my thing. You don't have to repost if you don't want to.

Like horses-and-men, your best bet is Naruto, but fortunately this is an opinion-based thing and I have stuff to say about all my fandoms, even if in other fandoms you might need to remind me who some of the more obscure characters are. Yeah.

Meme ganked from rayemars: Twenty Top Pairings (in no particular order)Collapse )
Monday, April 2nd, 2007
1:25 am
Second sidestory for rayemars' whorehouse AU (with consent from the author), 9 to 5 Grind, which you can find here. Detailing an incident which is never completely explained in 9 to 5 Grind's last section. A few yakuza terms are used in this fic, but their meaning is pretty much implied in the context, so there shouldn't be any problems. This was actually written several months ago, but I couldn't post until rayemars got to the part of 9 to 5 Grind that this piece addresses, so here it is.

Series Title: A Darker Shade of Grey, or 5 To Midnight And All Is Not Well
Story Title: Those Who Pay Witness
Rating: R (for swearing, violence, questionable implications)
Word Count: ~4,100
Genre: General
Warnings (including spoilers): The rating is there for a reason, but there are literally no spoilers, as this is a complete A/U.
Synopsis: Yakuza dealings with the cops rarely end well. Kidoumaru discovers this first-hand, and wishes he hadn't.

He’d gotten out of the habit of biting his nails sometime during college, and then had fallen right back into it after graduate school halfway through the first tax season he'd had to deal withCollapse )
