Haven't been writing for the last week... But when I did, I did a whole lot. So I'm not as far behind as you'd think. Current goal: Finish DiSS before November 1st and I should be golden. That is my deadline before another looms near.

Nominations for Yuletide 2015 are underway. Last year was the start to this—as where I stand DiSS is halfway through with minor edits in the first half to complete—but it's great to be here at the start and have control of some things, like nominations for starters.

First, I'm struggling with what to nominate. Okay, so Love Live! is a given because I'm so obsessed and I feel like nominating Hanayo in one slot because currently it's seriously the month of Hanayo on EN and JP and— Okay, I'll breath now. This isn't the blog to gush about LLSIF, but two Hanayo events back to back are quite convincing. AO3 actually has a section listed for the game I never noticed before. I doubt it has much because people will run over to School Idol Project instead. Currently, I have Kotori, Niko, Honoka, and Rin ready to be put up in the spotlight.

Next, which isn't any surprise if you know me whatsoever, is my decision to do Tokyo Babylon justice by nominating it ocne again. Last year It apparently got four stories, so I'm betting money that somebody is sitting out there with it nominated already. I don't see it in the unofficial Yuletide Google Spreadsheet and it worries me... I'll try posting and see if anyone says anything, maybe, or I'll just do it for safety reasons.

Otherwise, I think Tsubasa's Seishirou, Subaru, Kamui, and Fuuma probably should be nominated. Because the TRC fic scene with the vampires is scarce and lacking in complete fics and I'm all kinds of TB/X trash for thinking this as one of my bigger noms when everybody else is probably focusing on other things. To be fair, I don't really know most of the fandoms I already see listed. So I'm going to have a small pool to work with here and I want what I'll have to be a good match for me.

Last but not least, I thought K-ON! for Yui and Azusa. But when I looked back through the archives there wasn't much of that and it worries me that it would have a match. Then why didn't I nominate Nanoha? Well, somebody else nominated it and I luckily got Einhart and Vivio put in for me. Which brought me to possibly nominating Railgun, but after talking to the same person about that, we're just now working on which characters will fit into it because their friend nominated it instead. Which, well, leaves me with this last nomination.

I have to search through my list and figure out something. I also should post about it on that community so other people can see. It worked with me and Nanoha, so why not. I was surprised to see somebody else likes it as much as I do, and you never know who else is lurking. I have a few days. So, I'll write home about what I decided when the time comes.
Reflection time on A Warm Place and Light the Way Home (or, Despair and Hope as the working title was before I axed it).

My regrets for this two are simple. I had to cut things for time. AWP would have been heartwarming with a lot more dialogue and hurt/comfort. That's how it goes in my head when I think of it. As I have said already LWH would have benefited from action scenes such as a Sayaka and Homura one. I regretted not adding it in, though my peaceful resolution may also have seemed probable.

Yes, expanded. I've never really seen Arf and Fate's landing on Earth before the first season explored. Not that there's that much more to state I eouldn't think, really—Precia brought them there and they fended for themselves. Yet I wonder.

LWH was written in less than two days, which was a newer challenge on my end. Rarely do I write so much at once. But I was proud of my 4,000 word marker. Most pinch hits written at the time are up to 3,000 words and seem to average 1-2,000. While "A Warn Place" instantly came to mind when the story was finished, Despair and Hope was a working title of the greatest height. No, I didn't like it much from the moment it popped into my head until I changed it. Based on the finish for LWH it sits better with me. Besides, I watched Rebellion raw and worried I had details wrong. I remedied that with wiki pages and summaries as soon the prompt was mine, especially Sayaka snd Nagisa's info.

AWP was written for the most part a week before Christmas when I posted it. Part of me was happy it was a treat; the other kept tweaking the word count in frustration because I was 20 words over the limit and kept consulting AO3. I managed to cut out the extra fat but not the ideas sprung up along the way.

Both of these stories are a bit interweaved because they were written for the same Yuletide, I think. Not to mention I tried to cram Tom's and Zelda's Pokeshipping fic (nearly done, nearly I say!) at once.

Will something come of these stories? Perhaps, in due time. I have the urge to continue. Maybe even multi chapter stories. But I don't see them being too long. Just sweet, cotton candy fluffy things with a light taste.
We're going to talk about the Pokėmon Ash x Misty story I owe my friend Zelda. And I should have given it to her about five years ago, so we're talking deadfully overdue here Notes on that in the fic whenever it comes.

In fact, the part I'm going to talk about is currently posted underneath this post because I alrwady showed it to Zelda. But it's locked. I'll probably unlock it when the polished version is out. Maybe that'll be ome a tradition in the case sonebody is interested in seeing that. Kind of doubt it, though.

So, before Christmas I started writing it. I was sooo pumped becayse yes finally this thing was going to get done. A week before Christmas, I was sooo going to get it done! It was going great. I had the drive for it... and then I wrote Magic's Tom story on that week's Friday and sort of spent more or less the whole day on it. Then the Yuletide happened the day after that. That was Light the Way Home.

Though I did track Zelda down in February when I saw her online. And I thought, I wrote this thing in December and you're going to read it even though I can't finish it for some reason even though, you know, most of the last half is written. It's just extremely rough. I gave her the first half of the story like I said and she seemed to like it and think it was cute. However... I realized then I didn't like a part of the beginning description, and now I"m going to change it. Because I don't know how i could make such a grave mistake in the first place as what I put, especially because the error doesn't fit with what I'm imagining here at all.

Kind of pointless to mention, kind of not. Thought I had more to say about it, but I might just go over when I do the next reflection on it. It's sort of a bit on the editing process. Because I originally thought it was perfect the way it was and I didn't have to change anything. It was supposed to be shorter than what it's turning into it, really. This is how strange imagery is sometimes.
Still not much to say about this story. Okay, maybe there's something. Says the paragraphs below this sentence. But! Okay, I do have something to say. After a long slump, my motivation's been piqued. Zelda has been alerted once again to my burning passionate desire to write a story for her ship. I have begun to chop up the story a bit into a continuum!

What does that mean? Well, this story is planned to be a few chapters in length. I have broken my initial ideas and this will not be a one-shot in so many ways (in spirit, perhaps) but technically I want to edit this thing out into nicer bite sized chapters. Thus far, I've broken it up into four linear chapters. There—extremely slim chance, I don't want this to go on forever—five or six chapters. Depends how much more screentime is needed inbetween for certain characters.

The only problem is Misty. Most of this story is centered around Ash. It was always supposed to be, and it still will revolve around his awkward good-heartedness. But as the story's expanded a bit in the quantity I decided she needs a little more screentime to validate her feelings, so she'll have it.

Also, there's going to be OCs in this story. This was not meant to happen! When I finally started to rewrite, these OCs popped into my head and just made sense like a regular episode of Pokemon. Not to mention why I'm also looking up a little more information to make this story authetic to the city I'm using. I don't know how well-recieved they'll be recieved (and, no, they are not going to stand in Misty and Ash's way—this is a story purely about them) but they're going to guide the story a bit and give Ash his motivation.

Oh, also, back around Christmas I wanted to have this thing published on here without having a beta look at it. That's changing, because now that this story will be longer, and I have no time limit this time and the novelty of starting has weaned off a bit, I'm going to consult someone after I'm done with this story. That still might be a while. But! Now I know what should happen in the story from the beginning to end. I have four chapters with some events going on in each so far. That's a feather in my cap, I'd say.
So now I have four people that want my Ash x Misty fic. Impressive.

I guess talking to Zelda actually helped me. The other day I once again ambushed her on Skype and told her the story was at 7,500 words. She said she was excited to read it. Good, good. That was an accomplishment brought about from a burst of energy. Over the weekend I wrote quite a bit, and today I filled in more gaps. I'm around 10,500. A little over.

I asked Elite what she thought of my long-windedness and she said I was crazy. Maybe I am crazy. This story was at least supposed to be 7,500 words, not whatever it is amounting to. I joked to Elite I'd make it about 20,000 words (I'd be surprised if I did hit that milestone).

The more I stare at this story, I don't think it's quite as big of a leap as I think it'll be in the end. To get to 20,000 words mark, that is. The story is a bit of a mess as I write and will eventually have to rewrite. But these things take time. My biggest problem is still what to do with Misty, but I'm starting to find a focus for her.

I also started a small SeiSub fic minutes prior to writing/posting this entry, so I hope I finish that soon. In fact, it's in the same document I'm writing this post in.
I've signed up for NaNoWriMo after seeing two authors I admire entering. It was a last minute decision because... well, my writing for a while has been stagnant to an extent (and my classes...) But I thought, when am I going to do this thing if not now? Wait for another year and say the same thing? No, too wish-washy. After the fiction writing class I've realized my original characters creation needs help now and this is the best place to start worldbuilding for a novel I've said I'd get into. Jump in without preplanning and write. Probably 2,000 words a day, which leaves a few days for rest or thought between. Got my Yuletide assignment, too, and maybe plan on CLAMP Secret Santa on Tumblr. I have my plate full!
Since I think one person followed me after I posted chapter one of Dancing Through Starry Skies and is probably waiting for an update on that… .

I think the second chapter will have to wait until sometime in December. Like I said, most of the story is written. But I’ve realized, looking back over the story itself with fresh eyes after a few months worth of time, there are bits and parts that I can add to make this story even better than what it is. I don’t think the OC parts will cause the problems, but Misty’s involvement is, and I want her to get equal treatment in this story. It is half about her! I want Zelda to read the best story possible I can dish out for her.

Besides that, I’m working on a Seishirou x Subaru (ish…?) NaNoWriMo at the moment. And that’s just not going to get done by itself, and I have lot of work to do on that before the end of the month. This is my second priority after school work (which is, as you know it, due before Thanksgiving Day, yay).

Don’t get too excited if someone actually wants to read it, though. As it looks now it looks awful and would need serious revision that wouldn’t happen until next year. My hands are tied with writing until then. Add onto that the CLAMP Secret Santa and Yuletide, goodbye free time! I’m happy to do all this!

But yeah, there’s an explanation if somebody wants an update on fic things.
So, Yuletide is long over with. I'd like to talk about the stories I wrote.

Just Another Break:

I actually wanted to write this because I was happy to find someone else who wanted MSLN for Yuletide. Not only that, but I wrote A Warm Place a year ago, and i wanted to keep my little MSLN Yuletide treat tradition going.

All I wanted was fluff and romance for this. Pure, unadulterated fluff and romance. The request was for the working environment. I thought, okay, I can use the TSAB. But I coming up with a mission for MSLN is a little difficult. So I thought, yes, Fate comes home from a mission and fluff ensues! And so, I came up with the idea of the cafe. At first I wasn't sure how to connect that to anything interesting... but Nanoha wanting Fate to come for a Couple's Day came to mind after writing the original draft. It felt bland and then... bam. I said, "I can fit that in! It's perfect!" I thought about the the reason of what makes this day special for Nanoha and Fate to come to this particular cafe on this particular day. Why would Nanoha care, and how can it be extra sweeter? Well, I found my answer!

Did I mention this took me about six hours to write? That's honestly a record for me. I had to do the Christmas dinner thing with the family, and i even posted it an hour before Madness ended. I even told my family. They seemed surprised I wrote a story for someone else...? I don't know why. Well, I could have posted it a little after. I just wanted to be on time! And I edited just a little after Madness opened, but it couldn't be helped.

Learning How to Smile:

I'm not really sure how this one turned out so long, but it did. The supernatural element actually wasn't supposed to happen. I had a few other ideas that would make the scene a little more realistic (like the ghost was a dog—I know, it sounds strange, and that's what I worried about). But the more I thought about it, the more changing the ghost seemed to be a lie to the audience.

I remember when we talked about that in my previous writing class; if you give the reader something from the start, you should continue with it so they're not confused or turned off. I promised the ghost from the start and I needed to continue with it or give an incredibly good reason that it didn't exist. I probably could have delved more into who the ghost is, and now that I'm done I see how I could have done that too, but the story was about Nozomi and Nico finding some common semblance with each other. I tried to do that with their separate loneliness/sadness similarities.

Where Your Heart Belongs:

This story was difficult. I agonized about it, honestly. Not because I didn't want to do write after I plucked it out of the pinch hit list, but the ideas floating around in my head weren't coming as coherently as I wanted them to. I kept thinking of long-winded plots I neither had the time to do, and I worried about how coherent they'd be if I even tried. So Where Your Heart Belongs was born after I wondered: What makes a linear storyline?

I tried to think of the places in the Tokyo Babylon timeline that might have needed just a little more explaining. Because the end has such a wealth of possibilities, I said okay, we're doing that. But then, how? I thought, "Seishirou is always not with Subaru when he wakes up from the cataconic state in fics. I wanted to know what would happen if Seishirou was there with him, and I wanted to explore the theme of touch. Smut was kind of an option, but I wasn't too smitten to write it at the time, and I didn't think I had to for a compelling story. I just wanted to see the influence touch would have on Subaru waking up back to Seishirou.

It was interesting to write Seishirou in a more possessive light, too. I normally don't do that. I could get used to it, though. Seeing Seishirou not wanting to give Subaru back his family was quite comfy to write.
Now that I'm (kind of) into NaNoWriMo and the Yuletide period has been going on for a month plus, I've thought about this a bit. Next year, I've already decided what I'll be doing exchange-wise. I won't be signing up for exchanges as much. I said I'd be doing this for a year to myself. Just to test out the waters and grind out my writing skills. And now that a full year has gone by and I've tried many things, I think I'll see what's next.

At least, not so many exchanges. It's not that I don't enjoy exchanges. In fact, I've learned a lot while doing exchanges about myself and the mistakes I make along the way. But I just would rather not sign up with a busy semester upcoming and all. After that? I don't know, honestly. Yuletide's of course a surefire thing and probably Trick or Treat again. Probably Chocolate Box, too. So, that doesn't mean I don't want to write in exchanges any longer. I still want to write treats for people, and I think it might help me to just work without the deadlines. The deadlines helped me focus, but I want try working without particular deadlines.

These thoughts are a bit on the rambly side. I'll think about it in the next few months, but I rather stick to fewer sign-ups, more treats.
So I've thought about this for a while and I think I might go ahead and do it. I'm going to delete Imperfect Moon and Forgotten World of Oddities from AO3 and just move them here. They're stories no one other than me would probably care about, and I don't really like the thought of them still being up over there if I don't think they're worth it. When I originally posted those stories I was scraping around for anything to post to my account. I didn't write as much fic, or stories in general, back then as I do nowadays.

FWoO was actually a roleplay sample for an RP site that died. I really was proud of my sign-up for that site. I didn't even care if it was worth it at the time I wrote it, honestly, because I just wrote it for Nanoha and that was good enough for me. It was long and detailed but I was fine. I wanted to write this weird thing about how she'd fight and the results of that worked enough for me. It leaves off on a dubious cliffhanger... yeah.

IM is a story about my roleplay OCs and the past I was meant to give them. Especially Sarah, Josh, and Relin. Relin, who was always supposed to be Team Moon's original leader. I never actually told anyone. I dropped that a long time ago even though I planned on it being this epic length story thing that turned from romance into gen and... can you see why no one would have cared about this but me. I don't ever expect to go back one day and work on it unless I feel like tinkering with it out of nostalgic. Which I doubt it of itself because I've moved on and I'm not much of a roleplayer anymore. I love my RP characters, though, and I suppose they'll just live on in my head.

The more I think about IM, the less I'm keen on deleting it. There's a few more chapters I could just... spruce up one day and post. It isn't any worse than the other boatloads of OC driven stories out there. And it isn't any worse than, say, FWoO being an inspiration for another Nanoha fic... since it isn't much of a fic and I can admit to that much. And FWoO has a kudo... so that must mean something... oh, and IM has a kudo (but Zelda doesn't technically count, lol).
So, it's the New Year! And I told myself I'd do a 2016 wrap-up for my fanfiction. I've come a long way in the previous year. This includes everything I wrote during 2016. Some stuff will be from a little earlier (2014-5) since I didn't write much before 2016 and never put those in any other kind of post. Yuletide was my real starting point, and this past 2016 I was pretty productive also. Most stories are varied ships but I've also written gen.

Under the cut fandoms include: Bleach, Cardcaptor Sakura, Death Note, Erased, Gakkou Gurashi! (School Live!), Inuyasha, Love Live! School Idol Festival, Love Live! School Idol Project, Love Live! Sunshine!!, Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica, Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha, Original Work (because why not), Pokemon (anime/game), Pokemon GO, Tokyo Babylon, Tsubasa Reservior Chronicle, and X/1999.

One day, I'll have to get all the links to the fics on AO3/FFN. (One day, everything will be crossposted to my Dreamwidth... one day.)

I hope to have more written in time for next year's wrap-up post. Until 2018, everyone!
I believe the journal will need to go through a bit of a makeover in the near future. There are many things I want to fix up in several posts. It makes me wish I had only one account, but I still stay by it being easier that both are separate a lot more organized. I don't know what I specifically what to do with tags, but I guess they're fine the way they are, mostly. I want to fix up the posts with fics (and actually add what others I have... which will take several posts itself).
I hate it when I have to read people complain that a premise for a TV, book, or movie, or whatever in a tanking plot, reads like a bad fanfiction. People do this all the time to suggest fanfiction is unworthy and it's not fair that we equivocate all fanfiction to being terrible.

I know fanfiction isn't the epitome of quality. I've read plenty of horrible, out of character stories I couldn't believe existed. But for the number of awful fanfiction, I've read well-written fanfiction that's more engaging than actual stale-by-the-formula published books for the hard work and effort authors pour into characters they love.

So, no. Take back your insult about fanfiction. If the premise or story in question is bad that doesn't mean it's all like fanfiction. It's probably filled with cliches and other bad quality tropes that won't stop plaguing popular stories anytime soon, but fanfiction certainly is more creative and immersive than some people give credit.
[The whole post is sarcastic self-denial in my weird personal flavor, but I had to write it out. So no one should read this unless you like rambling about the exact opposite of canon. I have feelings. I am not okay.]

Recently, I reread the X volume 16, and I’ll put my coherent feelings here.

Seishirou kisses Subaru.

How about that serious SeiSub kiss, everyone.

What do you mean you didn’t see a kiss? It happened. It was as clear as day, and yes, it is just as valid in our imaginations. You were supposed to visualize it—Seishirou was in too much pain to make the final connection. It probably happened off camera in a precious panel CLAMP hid from us, too. You don’t write “I… you…” and refuse to put a kiss somewhere there. Like, CLAMP could have planned to reveal the obvious meaning of those words in those last volumes, but of course we have to fill in the blank if we don’t have the ending.

Think about it, the kiss was too amazing to be put into one picture. CLAMP understood this cruel truth when they drew it. Don’t you understand how hard it is to draw absolute perfection in one panel and call it done? It was too much pressure for 100 words to convey in one picture. 100 words does not describe the justice SeiSub truly deserves.

It wasn’t to torture us. It couldn’t be have meant to do that, right?

Blood would have gotten in the way? That’s another thing, there was no blood.

It was a beautiful kiss. A kiss on a bridge over the water. No, Hinoto, go away. Their meeting was a date to watch the world burn or something. The kekkai. Good enough. And Seishirou most certainly didn’t die, you hear me. Why would you have the nerve to say that? He didn’t die, because that’s just depressing. Why would he have to die? He didn’t even care about the Earth. He was heartless and didn’t feel regret. That’s what we were supposed to believe. So he couldn’t have died, see? He couldn’t have died.

Anything else you hear is a lie! They kissed! No one died, and they were happy together. Happy in ever-after with Seishirou’s eye being Subaru’s wedding ring… but um…

So you did have influence in this, Shoten.

Which means… Seishirou felt something? Which, I mean, would be ridiculous if it happened in the TB to X timeskip. Why would his feelings change in so many years, especially when CLAMP themselves always put into their works that people constantly change? Especially when we knew basically nothing about how he lived those in between years. Seishirou could have sat down one day before 1999 and put on one of Hokuto’s old hats and wondered what he wanted out of life. No, you do not turn back after you’ve tried on Hokuto’s hats, Seishirou. Subaru knows it is futile. He would have warned you Hokuto’s hats were the worst ghosts that dared possess him. He couldn’t refuse. But you’re a stubborn man and didn’t listen to Subaru or talk to him. You’re a mystery.

Hokuto had you in that steel trap, Seishirou, but you managed to wiggle out and cause everyone heartfelt remorse anyway. Subaru, please, you had the one chance to control your boyfriend. But it wasn’t like you knew his plan… The world really did burn. Nothing burns brighter than when Seishirou realizes how many feelings he has inside. And this is what makes it worse.

That’s depressing if Seishirou’s kiss missed, you know. I mean, I don’t think I could handle that. An apologetic kiss missing like that, trying to make up for years lost and all. Keep that away. My heart clenches. Bleeds.

Or, it’s not like he paused in kissing him—breaking his selfish streak for the one and only time he kisses Subaru. If that’s a possibility, you know, and why not. Because he wasn’t kind, but he knew he was selfish. And selfishness really isn’t the way you want to tell someone goodbye. Or give into wishes, yours and his. So selfishness has to go. After all, why would he think Subaru loves him?

Seishirou was in pain. There’s that. And my heart bleeds again.

Love is strange. A strange, painful thing.

You know, let me just… be alone, please.

I have this small nitpick with an in game friend on EN. It's been going on for a while now and I just need to voice it.

I understand not having a UR, and I understand that not everyone might have tons and tons of SRs. But I have this one friend that always either has an idolized R or an idolized N (most of the time, in fact) as their center. And I'm like you??? Really? They're active and they usually try to tier. They're not that low ranked.

I know, I should just unfriend them if it bugs me that much. I don't know them out of game and I'm not going to ask them to change their N to an SR. I'm surprised I didn't delete them when I've done cleaning. But I've talked to them a few times when I've congratulated them, and I never get up the strength to delete someone after I've talked to them.

It still rubs me as not fair you get to use my Cyber Nico and you have this idolized N for me to use during a token match.

So I ship Yashiro Gaku/Fujinuma Satoru. Why? Spoiler reasons! I'm surprised too. It's honestly nowhere near as amazing as Seishirou/Subaru, obviously, but there's parallels with a serial murderer and age difference (even though Yashiro is older... 20 years?... Revival timelines make it a bit hazy). Despite that the confession leapt out of left field a bit, that rooftop scene and not being able to live with each other was pure gold in the anime version. And then what could be interpreted as a lover's suicide (from Yashiro's perspective) if you wanted. It was just too much yes. I think I'm what they me call trash. Pure, complete trash.
Currently watching the Extra Life Love Live! stream with Umidah. Trying to get a code is basically nonexistant. I swear there's a hoarder here, and one other person says they've gotten three Nico codes (like China Dress Nico). And I'm like... I get none because I'm one second late. And you get three? How fair is that?

I've been slacking with writing. BUT! I know where my ideas are going, especially after sitting inside the school library Thursday. I haven't been doing nothing! Tonight I also signed up for the CLAMP Secret Santa. Three things: NaNoWriMo, CSS, and Yuletide. That's it, I'm done. Along with treats. And NaNoWriMo now takes precedence until I'm at the place I should be.

Debating whether to skip Toonami tonight. I'm really tempted.
Lots of things.

Today was a good day. In Eli's Medley Festival I didn't tier. It was a nice steampunk design, but I wanted to save up for a UR (and oh the happiness, just wait). The T2 tiers for that reached and T1. Pretty crazy, right?

I also got a Pure MedFes. I swear I was at 703 combo... the highest I've ever gotten, wiping out that 503ish from September. About to finish Sweet, Sweet Holiday. BUT THEN I missed up on the last few notes. I know, I'm so upset. But at least there will be more chances, right?

During this MedFes I got 2-3 Alpacas and 2 Scouting Tickets. One gave me ninja Maki. The other gave me Nico (after I chanted for her). Only problem was, that was a Rare. Can't win them all.

The best thing came around 3:20. Before then I saw the new Victorian Kotori UR. I was so thrilled. Okay, so I only had 100 Loveca prepared. Wasn't really sure what would happen. So I draw once, got the ninja Rin. That's officially my first SR idolized (still upset about Pana) and it reaffirms how great idolized looks compared to unidolzed. Sometimes. My Scouting Ticket only gave me a Maki Rare, too.

So, then I draw again... AND BAM THE RED ENVELOPE FLIES OUT. First scout that had a UR fly out. I didn't know what to expect (well, I did, but!) and I held my breath and it was my beautiful Victorian Kotori coming home. <3 Way too happy for my own good. I love my new Kotori UR so much. I just wish i could have her ballgown idolized version. That dress is totally my favorite kind of design, and I'm sure Nozomi will be amazing when she's out. So far we can see the skirt of a purple dress peeking into Kotori's card... so obvious is obvious.

Lots of SIF first for me today. Halloween this year is being great to me. I played the game so much today I feel kind of burned out, though. The other Eli event isn't too bad. Still have to work on cleaning out those N cards.
