2010 in fic

Ahaha, my paid account expired while I wrote this.

My year-in-fic! Like every year, I ended up writing a lot less than I'd have liked. I only managed one of my writing resolutions I made for 2010, and that was writing for [livejournal.com profile] yuletide. I also realized a few things about my writing (or more like, was reminded of a few things...), and the number one thing is...

- I cannot write without deadlines. The things I wrote this year were almost all for fic exchanges, or they had self-imposed deadlines. (And then there was NaNo with one of the toughest deadlines!)

Maybe I should set more self-imposed deadlines for myself.

fics in chronological order )

actual fic meme, this is probably more interesting than my rambling above )
And here it is, the last addition to my attempt at writing Bokurano every single day! It took me two separate tries to finish this theme set from [livejournal.com profile] 31_days. I can't say I succeeded this time since I was late every single day, but this did get me writing a lot more than I usually write. All of these drabbles are now linked in this post.

Thank you [livejournal.com profile] darkicedragon and [livejournal.com profile] digi_dragon for all the comments. <3

Now that this is done, I think I'll finish some of my ongoing fics that have been ongoing for way too long. :3

Hm, this turned out weird. I think I spent all my creative juices on my [livejournal.com profile] switching_it_up fic today. :'D Maybe I should've just focused on Souji. The last fic for this little collection will probably be very late since I need to finish my Tenipuri fic first.

Wow, only two parts left after this! I have the next one planned. Wonder if I should write something more involved for the last part, but unlike the "As I break your chair" theme that I stopped with last time, this last theme isn't as grand, and I've pretty much exhausted everything I want to write about. I also have a deadline looming for [livejournal.com profile] switching_it_up that I'll be prioritizing. The writing for that has been hard, but it will be done. >__>

Super late today! After not knowing what to write (this theme was actually going to be dedicated to Machi instead of yesterday's theme), this actually ended up as the longest piece so far. How did that happen?

These are getting weirder and weirder. XD; This one was going to be about Sasami or another one of the military guys, but I don't think I'd be able to write about them very well, so I went with something else that piqued my interest.

I'm not sure where this piece came from. XD; Anyway, I read through half the series today (at a very quick speed) since I obviously missed a lot of detail in my previous read! I have such a bad memory for detail too. I don't think this ending is very plausible since I have no idea how much Miku was told, but pretend she doesn't learn the truth until way later, and that she does learn about it eventually. X3;;

I tried Write and Die for ten minutes. Gosh, it was torture. XDD It couldn't stop me from wanting to reread what I just wrote. I did write...200 words in that time, but ended up taking an hour and a half to write the rest. >__>

I don't understand this character all that well, or the whole situation behind the tower. I think it shows. :'(

Oh, and I can't believe I never realized this, but just who was the new Dung Beetle at the end?? I think I missed something here, because I always thought he was some random new Dung Beetle, but if not, I have some reorganizing to do. (for my head canon of things)

This Write or Die program. I wonder if I should try it, haha. I...always write and end up rereading what I wrote countless times before I move on, which is why I can never write a lot.

I am...consistently late. XD; But hey, this still means 1 fic a day, so I guess it's all the same in the end. I did plan out who I'm writing for the rest of the days though, so yay~.

Although I was very eager to write this one yesterday, it somehow came out very disjointed. =/

Heh, so after two years, I decided to pick this up where I left off! In 2008, I decided to write a Bokurano drabble every day for the month of August, but I only got up to August 15th when I stopped. Now that it's August 16th once again (albeit 2 years later...) I'm picking up where I left off. ;) Now that the manga has ended, I have new material to work with. The rest of these will mostly all be manga canon. Some of the previous ones I wrote two years ago have been contradicted by canon already. I won't be able to crosspost this in [livejournal.com profile] 31_days since this is 2 years after the fact, haha.

Rereading Bokurano still makes me very emotional. I need to find something fluffy to read now.

These pages make me tear up. So simple but powerful.

Read more... )

I think I'll give Kitoh Mohiro's other works a try too. Might try picking up Narutaru again.
Ushiro. ;____; I debated whether or not to read these RAWs This is a pretty long battle. Still hasn't ended yet. I don't know if I want to see the end. ):

three pics )

Now I feel like listening to Uninstall. This really fun typing game has Uninstall as one of the songs you type to. (You type the lyrics as the anime songs play!)
Recent anime and manga I've been following:

La Corda d'Oro secondo passo special - Eee, I haven't thought about Corda much lately. This...only 2 episodes? I wanted to screencap a lot of scenes, but I was eating dinner while watching. :'D I can't get used to the summer uniforms and kept staring at Fuyuumi's to see how the music and normal department ones were different. First episode featured Kira a lot. He sure moves fast. Read more... )

One Outs episode 24 - Only one more episode until the end. ): The series can get a little repetitive, but I'll still miss it. I laughed a lot watching this episode. Usually, Toua's antics make me smirk or snort, but today I was laughing so hard. Read more... )

Bokurano 58-60 - Machiii. Ushiroooo. I think scanlations have mostly caught up with the Japanese releases? I only have raws up to ch.60. Read more... )

SHAMAN KING KANGZENG BANG - Okay, first, the Marco fight? Totally gives Marco the spotlight he deserves. Little Marco is cute and Lyserg in glasses is just lajdkl;fa;. And now, the "true" ending. It makes me rethink my old SK fanfics (oh how wrong I was with the Shaman King theory). And Horo Horo. Read more... )

Lately, I've also been rewatching and rereading parts of PoT to gather material for [livejournal.com profile] twistserve_tcg. I finally finished reading the series last week. I couldn't bring myself to read the last few chapters for the longest time. Part of it had to do with who had to sit out for the final match. X3;; And the other part was just feeling weird that the series actually ended (after following it for so long). All these cool new moves and new characters make me wish Konami would make a new Prince of Tennis tennis game like Form the Strongest Team. I absolutely love that game.
