Posted two fandom wishlists. :3;;

Wishlist for Lucathia @ [community profile] eastasianfandomgiftbag
Any East Asian fandom goes for this community.

Lucathia's Stocking @ [community profile] fandom_stocking
I thought this community was really cool because currently all comments are screened on stockings, and they'll all get revealed at once later. :D

Would love any gifts. <3 Fic, art, meta, recs, general discussion or squealing, etc. Or even plotbunnies you want to lob at me! XD;

If any of you have wishlists like these up, I'd love it if you linked me! Or if you don't have a wishlist, why not consider putting one up? XD; I'd love to be able to gift some small gifts to my f-list. :)
[livejournal.com profile] yuletide authors have been revealed! I haven't been able to make my way back to reading all the fandoms I planned on reading..I only got up to J or so but left comments for almost every single story I read. The days between Christmas and New Years sure pass by in a flash! I hope I'll get around to the rest of the stories soon even though authors have already been revealed.

I wrote two stories this year, which is exactly the same number as last year and the previous year. :3 I'm not a very prolific writer, so I was pleased I was even able to write two oneshots of reasonable length, both in fandoms I've never written before.

Give Me Your Hand (Yankee-kun to Megane-Chan, Adachi/Shinagawa, for Alianora)
This was my main assignment~. I love the series a lot because it's crazily fun and humorous, but I don't know what I was thinking when I signed up for the series. XD; I wasn't very familiar with all the details since I only read through the series once very quickly all in Japanese up to volume 11. I fretted and even considered writing Alianora's other prompt for Mei-chan no Shitsuji instead even though I've only watched 1 episode of the drama (I totally considered marathoning the show with only one day left until assignments were due). I ended up rereading Yankee-kun to Megane-chan and taking a whole slew of notes on each chapter. I only got up to the recent scanlations (chapter 63) before I gave up reviewing since I really needed to get writing. XD That's pretty much the reason why the fic is set in second year! The fic itself just wouldn't get to the point quickly enough, hence why it got longer and longer (and less detailed near the end with the time crunch). I did enjoy writing Shinagawa even though I'm entirely unused to writing characters with language like his. I'm glad people seemed to think everyone was IC. Thank you for the fun prompt, Alianora! more babbling on this fic that wouldn't end )

Snowmen with Scarves (Kimi to Boku for jan/[livejournal.com profile] ambientlight)
I snatched up this pinch hit right away. ^___^ I wasn't planning on writing KtB since I was more interested in reading about the series than writing it, but there's no way I can say no to this. The writing for this fic came very easily since I wasn't aiming for the fic to be anything complicated. There is nothing much to this fic other than it being another slice of the five main boys' lives. It's set during a random winter day (and not during Christmas or New Years, since I know the original series already has chapters about them). Like the above fic, this one is pretty dialogue heavy, which is strange for me since I've always shied away from writing dialogue. I translate KtB for Bliss Scanlations though, and that has made me extremely familiar with the speech of everyone in this series. I'm thinking that's why the dialogue came so easily. I battle with their speech everyday already, paying much more attention than I usually would when reading manga for fun. Thank you, [livejournal.com profile] ambientlight, for requesting KtB for Yuletide! :) If I ever write another fic for KtB, I will so write about the twins since they're my favorite too.

In addition to the lovely Saiunkoku fic about Tan-tan that I got from Maat, I also received a treat about Sunshine from 1/2 Prince from [livejournal.com profile] darkicedragon. Thanks~! :D


Aside from Yuletide, THANK YOU [livejournal.com profile] slashed_dream for the postcard. It has reached me safely from across the ocean! Thank you [livejournal.com profile] rindou_yume for the lovely card and drawing. I could not stop smiling while reading your card and admiring all the details in your drawing. Do you mind if I make icons out of your drawing? :D
Before I knew it, [livejournal.com profile] yuletide already went live! I planned on writing some treats (I saved so many prompts) but spent most of my time finishing up for another exchange. I seriously joined too many this holiday season, but I received lovely gifts in return. ^__^ I wish I had been able to get around to some of the Yuletide prompts I saved since some of those fandoms have no fics in the main collection...I hope people wrote for those fandoms for treats since treats aren't up yet! I love Yuletide. It's exciting to see so many people excited over giving and receiving gift fics.

Gifts I received!

[livejournal.com profile] fe_exchange
- Blood and Green by [livejournal.com profile] myaru (Lugh, Chad, FE6)
A melancholic piece about Lugh and Chad in winter before they run into Ray again. Beautiful imagery. I've never read fic about them before and don't have the capability to write fic about them myself. I love them a lot and am so happy to receive gift fic about them!

[livejournal.com profile] yuletide
- Gathering Experience (Tan-tan, Seiran, Shuurei, Sauinkoku Monogatari)
This is another series I love dearly that I have trouble writing. I'm quite ecstatic to receive fic about Tan-tan! The fic feels like it could follow right after the second season of the anime. Lovely interaction between the characters.

TWEWY Secret Santa
- TWEWY gift from [livejournal.com profile] xmellocat.
I received the beginning of a video about Neku and Shiki. It looks so promising! :)


I wrote two full length stories for [livejournal.com profile] yuletide this year, one a pinch hit and one for my assigned recipient. One of the recipients already commented on one of the fics, which makes me so excited! :) I'm now making my way through reading other fics, but I think I need to go to sleep since my comments don't even make sense anymore. XD

For the sake of my own records, here's Pent and Louise that I drew for [livejournal.com profile] klaavier in the Fire Emblem exchange.
Pairpuri )

I've yet to do a holiday card post this year. I think I'll have to go digital considering it's late already!

Holiday wishlist instructions )

The Wishlist~:

fishbones related things. The only reason my fishbone collection is this large is thanks to everyone who's thought of me whenever they saw fishbones around them. :) Actual things like keychains or virtual things like icons are all very much adored.

paid LJ time. My paid account is expiring this month. I don't know if LJ is doing the giving more thing this year where you get more for buying other people LJ extras, but if LJ does do that, I hope someone will like to trade LJ time with me. |D

for more people to join [livejournal.com profile] twistserve_tcg. Running this Tenipuri TCG has taken over my life. I'd really like to see more people join. Um, our fast pace over there might be a bit intimidating, but everyone can play at their own paces! And we're all very welcoming!

for some translators to join me in translating fanbooks over at [livejournal.com profile] fanbook. One of my ambitions is to translate fanbooks and make information in them easily accessible. So far, it's mostly been a single person endeavor (looks like it won't be a one person endeavor anymore!), but I made a community to invite more people to join me in the endeavor and to make translations centralized. Maybe I haven't been going about it the right way. XD; (ALSO, for PairPuri especially, we'd like some cleaners to help with the scanlating portion.)

Yu Yu Hakusho on Blu-ray. It is ridiculously expensive. There are three box sets that cover the entire series, and each one is 42,000 yen or more. But I only have bad quality VHS versions of YYH. I really miss the series. Kurama is still my favorite character of all times. [I'm not actually asking people to get this because it's much too expensive. :3 But one day, I hope I'll be able to get these for myself, or that the price will come down!]

fanwork for any of the following. (fanfic, fanart, icons, whatever!) 1/2 Prince, Kimi to Boku, Mekakushi no Kuni, Yoroshiku Master, Double Arts, Bokurano, Dear Boys, Fire Emblem 6 (especially Chad, Lugh, and Ray), Overdrive (Kurosuke~), Dennou Coil, Zig Zag, Shion no Ou, Detective Academy Q, Kaichou wa Maid-sama, Uninhabited Planet Survive, Mintna Bokura, Charming Junkie, Saiunkoku Monogatari (I love Tan-tan), Karakuri Odette, Busou Renkin (I really adore Gouta). The list is very similar to last years with only a few changes. :3

recs for the following. Any genderbending series (manga or anime) I've missed. Long, plotty KuroxFai fic (Tsubasa). KlavierxPhoenix fanwork (Ace Attorney). Long, plotty Yu Yu Hakusho fanfic. Crossover fic! Viral or Rossiu fanwork (TTGL).

to get to know people on my flist better. Even online, I can't seem to get close to people. If you could tell me one thing about you that you'd like to share, that would be a start. :) Like, what you're doing now, or what you're looking forward to. Anything! And if you want to ask me something, that's fine too.

snail mail from my flist! :)

more bookshelf space. I really need to reorganize my room. I managed to fit all my manga from my Japan trip on my shelves, but now they're full. I have no more room for new manga. =/
Happy 25th everyone!! I've been eying the counter for Yuletide all day yesterday. I reread a manga so I could write a last minute treat for it, and just now, I got a email with links to three stories for me!! Squee! For three different fandoms! Not just one, but three awesome stories! One more, and all of my requests would have been done. So my previous Santa, don't feel bad for not being able to write/finish your fic. The pinch hitters did a great job. I would still love to see what you come up with if you're still up to it though!

I haven't been able to leave feedback yet (don't want to crash the database...it spit an error message at me when I tried) but I love all three that I got. These three were all scenarios I was dying to see, and my yuletide santas filled them so well! I also already got a comment from the recipient I wrote for. Sooo happy they liked it. ♥ *goes back to reread the comment*

Links to the Yuletide gifts I got so I can save this in my memories~ (...hopefully all of you aren't already swamped by gushing Yuletide recipients today...)

A Promise Repaid (Eureka seveN) - Dominic visits Renton's grandfather post-series and tries to pass off as a friend.

Like a Bird through the Glass (Tantei Gakuen Q) - Kyuu and Ryuu friendship fic. Kyuu thinks about how Ryuu acts after everything's over.

The Winter of Our Discontent (Fire Emblem 7) - Erk takes on Pent's position and thinks of the people who he used to be and could have been close with.

Also, holiday cards! [livejournal.com profile] just1kinkybitch and Kuro (hilarious that Kinky wrote both messages, hehe), [livejournal.com profile] tarigwaemir (Tsumego problems for the win!), [livejournal.com profile] dyaoka (your writing slants, but it's still so neat! Hope to meet you again~), I received your cards yesterday! ♥ Thanks so much! I'll er, finally be sending mine out after Christmas. They'll be like new years cards.

I'm bursting with happiness right now, what with Yuletide and all these lovely cards. I'm so joining in next year's Yuletide. Hopefully early enough so I can suggest fandoms too.
Ike and Link with the most random pose ever, for Kinky. :)

here's the sketch, wrong proportions and everything )

Also, [livejournal.com profile] revenus (kda;sdjfsa That is one cute Dino) and [livejournal.com profile] ulqui (thank you for the adorable little pouch and bracelet!!) I've received both of your cards. I really need to get cracking on mine.

[livejournal.com profile] disutansu, I received your card! Wow, you're so early with them! :)

My holiday card post is here if anyone wants a card from me. I'll be sending them out late December. (whoops, hey guys, I linked to last years. I changed that, so check again?)

directions for wishlist )

The Wishlist:

fishbones related things. I've accumulated quite a collection, and a lot of it is thanks to people who've found unique fishbone items all around the world for me. Actual things like keychains/necklaces or virtual stuff like icons are all appreciated. :)

for people to give Kimi to Boku a try. Kimi to Boku is a cute slice-of-life manga by Hotta Kiichi. I'm so in love with this series right now. I hope more of you read it so I can squee about it with you. You can find downloads of the manga and the drama CDs at [livejournal.com profile] kimitoboku_fan. Tenipuri fans will be interested to know that Minagawa Junko and Kaida Yuki voice twins in this series, and Morikubo Showtaroh voices the teacher. Suzumura Kenichi, Takayama Minami, and Takeuchi Junko are also regulars of the drama CDs.

artists who are willing to contribute to a Kimi to Boku project I have in mind. One of the drama tracks in Kimi to Boku is a parody on Snow White. I'd really like to put together a video for that, which would only be feasible if people were willing to draw scenes from the drama. So basically, I need people to illustrate some scenes! Quick sketches are entirely fine.

fanwork for any of the following (obscure?) series: (fics/fanart/icons/whatever!) Kimi to Boku, Mekakushi no Kuni, Yoroshiku Master, Double Arts, Bokurano, Area no Kishi, One Outs, Dear Boys, Fire Emblem 6, Overdrive, Dennou Coil, Zig Zag, Shion no Ou, Detective Academy Q, Kara no Teikoku (I doubt anyone knows this!), Yankee-kun to Megane-chan, Kaichou wa Maid-sama, Uninhabited Planet Survive, Mintna Bokura

long socks. I really want cute, long socks...I don't really have a use for them since I always wear long pants, but I still like long socks a lot. =x

snail mail from my flist~.

free time. D: There is never enough.

passing JLPT this weekend! I'm so doomed.

SPAM PARTY. I MAKE A POST. YOU SPAM ME. I always include this, but I never do it. This year...

Holiday Cards

lucathia: (fishbones: happy holidays)

Handmade card from last last year!

I don't know if I'll have time for these this year, but I would hate to not even attempt sending them out. If you would like a card from me, please leave a comment here at this post with your address. Even if you think I already have your address, it never hurts to give it to me again in case mine is outdated. I might be sending out store-bought cards again this year due to lack of time, but I'll still include something personal with each one.

Comments are screened! If you have your address posted somewhere else, please let me know~. If you're sending out cards too (and I haven't commented/whatnot) LET ME KNOW because I certainly want one. XD;
ASDLKFJA; [livejournal.com profile] cynicalism, THANK YOU SO MUCH. I wasn't expecting this at all! ♥ It's sooo cool. And green! I'm going to use it in my bathroom to hold my soap! I might even try to take a better picture of it and turn it into my header. 8D

look what she got meeee. It's a fishbone soap holder thing! )

But like [livejournal.com profile] cynicalism mentioned, we barely talk with each other. ): Same goes for the rest of my flist. I'd really like to get to know all of you better even if we don't share many fandoms. What are all of you up to nowadays? I'm on summer vacation right now for my multiple subject teaching credential, and all I've been doing is sewing and making stuff. ^^; Next up on my list is AX, which is coming up this week. I hope to see some of you there~

Oh, and does anyone play Trickster? I remember someone talking about Trickster before! Well, [livejournal.com profile] slashed_dream and [livejournal.com profile] stillarium roped me into it and babied me along (I'm still very much a newbie though!) and I was giggling like mad when they pointed out the fishbones in the sand to me. *points at icon* If any of you are playing, my character's name is rykatu~
Happy holidays, everyone! It's currently Christmas Eve for me. XD I was out shopping until 1 AM yesterday! The lines were crazy even past midnight. Those poor employees...

[livejournal.com profile] jeva_chan, thank you for your card! ♥

I'm currently spazzing over the new decks released for [livejournal.com profile] anime_lj_tcg. There weren't many decks of characters I absolutely adore before...but now? TOO MANY.

Look! Hikaru no Go decks! Kaitou Kid!! New Death Note decks including Mello, Near, AND Mikami Teru. Oh gods. Hanatarou and tons of other Bleach decks, including Aizen, Hitsugaya, Hinamori. Phoenix Wright decks!! Reborn decks look cool too. *____* Tao Ren! Loki! Kanou from Oofuri!! AMATERASU! GINTAMA DECKS!! An Emma deck!! Killua! Hiruma!! LINK. Hiwatari Satoshi! *___* I'm getting a lot of my megane fix. XD And there are now beautiful tarot decks too.

...I really don't know how to decide what to collect anymore. XDD My card post. I'm collecting 1412 as my top priority now since I asked for it for my Christmas deck and all. Much thanks to the mod! F-list, if any of you are into TCGs, I hope this is enticing enough for you to join. XD

Also, I sent out all of the overseas holiday cards on Saturday (and some USA ones too, but not all) so except them sometime in the future! I need to get to working on the rest...

Hope all of you are having a great holiday season! ♥
I received a lot of holiday cards this week! Sorry about not posting earlier about this...I had (and still have) nothing to say except that I received lots of cards. XD

[livejournal.com profile] blahchiharu, [livejournal.com profile] athena8, [livejournal.com profile] fantasy2004, [livejournal.com profile] raikochan, [livejournal.com profile] distansu, thank you all! Since I've only just started on my cards, I'll reply in those to your cards. :) Just wanted to let you all know that I received your cards and that mine are still...not done yet. (I only have one done...) I'm so not on top of things. ):

And now, some ramblings on FE9 that I passed last week.

on the characters )

on FE10 )
My holiday card post is here if you missed it! Please go leave a comment with your address if you want a card. :3

instructions )

the Wishlist )

I started saving other people's wishlists here but I sort of just started, so if I missed yours, please let me know!
I HAVE A WII!! A JAPANESE ONE. MY SISTER-IN-LAW JUST WENT, HERE, LOOK WHAT I GOT YOU! XDDDD (She bought me Detective Conan on the Wii. This is going to be hard. But my gosh, there's a Kamen Yaiba arcade game that you can play in the game. It's hilarious.)

Ahem. With that out of the way...

It's that time of the year again. Time for Christmas cards!

I'm probably going to send out normal, store bought Christmas cards this year, but I'll try to include something special with it as well. If you'd like a Christmas card, please leave a comment below with your address!

Comments are screened and feel no obligation to send me a card in return, though I do love snail mail. ♥ Even if I have your address already, please leave it again so I can just easily reference this page when I'm doing my Christmas cards. XD
I've finally finished all the cards and sent them out! I probably should have done them in batches...but well, I like to get everything done at once. ^^;; It took me a long time because...uh, apparently, cutting and gluing so many cards takes a while. If you left a comment with your address in this post, then I've sent a card to you for sure, so expect them sometime soon in the mail! (well, however long it takes mail to get to places...) Please let me know when you get yours! :D

[profile] _hilde, thanks for your lovely card (L is very cute)! The two bracelets are so pretty too. ♥ I've been showing them off. X3

[personal profile] tarigwaemir, I've received your card too! It's so fun reading ficlets that's actually written down in pen! Thank you for the Touya/Shindou piece.

Oh yeah, [community profile] blind_go? My fic is utterly horrible. *dies* For some reason, I'm even busier during break...
First off, Merry Christmas! ♥

Hehe, I did the 12 Days of Christmas meme and was very amused with day 5. --> Five fiiiishbones! XD;;

This does tie into this fic, well, at least the song does. :3 Here's my obligatory Christmas fic (though I didn't do one last year.)

Title: Christmas at Rikkai Dai
Fandom: Prince of Tennis
Disclaimer: I do not own Prince of Tennis.
Characters: all of Rikkai, with hints of Niou/Yagyuu
Words: ~2791
Rating: PG
Notes: written as a pinch hit for [profile] yaoi_challenge, though this turned out very gen-ish. It's also kind of fluffy. The prompt was a cop/prisoner scenario between Niou and Yagyuu.
Summary: see title. A normal day at Rikkai, just with Christmas celebration thrown in. Christmas costume party, anyone?

I have tons more people to thank this holiday season! <3

[personal profile] bunnychan, your homemade postcard is wonderful! I love it!

[personal profile] yoshikochan , I've received your card too. Hehe, I look forward to seeing you at Fanime! Thanks for the lovely drawing of L!

[personal profile] mklutz, thanks for the added paid time! I wasn't expecting it, so it made it all the more exciting. See, I've started to add some icons! They're not new or anything...just previous icons that I couldn't fit. Though, now I've run out of fishbone icons that I had on hand, so I'll have to make some more!

And, I've finally, FINALLY finished with all my pinch hitting. I think I must be crazy. I did pinch hitting for both [profile] yaoi_challenge and [community profile] yuletide. 0_0;; Three fics total!! It's like...more than I've written for the past...oh, I don't know how long. ^^;; But it's been a while since I've written so much in one week. They're not terribly good fics, by any means, but I managed to churn them out! (Though, I stayed up until the wee hours of morning for the past few days trying to pull fic out of my brain. Frustrating, it was.) I really don't know why I thought I could churn out fic with such little given time...I guess I just wanted to join in with all the fun since I missed all the sign-ups for these communities!

Oh, and could someone tell me what are good dimensions for sizing pictures in mood themes? What size do people generally make their pictures for mood themes?
I've received more Christmas cards these past few days! Hehehe, this time, they're all from people whose lj starts with a D~

[profile] disutansu, yours is just...so much love!! It's like...opening a box of little trinkets and wondering what else is in there. They were all very fun to read. And the drawing of L! ♥

[profile] dystopiarcadia, thanks for all the fishbone drawings! XD;; They're so cute! I love the paper you used too. :D

[profile] dragon_faere, thanks for the cute Christmas card!! <3

Sadly, I haven't finished mine yet. They're going to be pretty late. For some reason, I uh...signed up to pinch hit for some communties...so yeah.

Since I'm still making the cards, if anyone else still wants a card, feel free to leave your address here at my card post. Last call for cards this holiday!
my xmas stocking )

My gifts to all of you:

[ x ] Busou Renkin radio 1. (MC 福山潤・柚木涼香)

[ x ] Penguin Revolution Drama CD. <--The voices fit very well. ;) Ryou tries to learn how to bake from Yukari. It's all very cute.

Does anyone know if there's a drama for Mekakushi no Kuni? D= Also, I have no idea how long files stay alive on mediafire. Anyone know?

Recently, the only anime that I've been following every week as new episodes come out are Busou Renkin, Death Note, and La Corda d'oro. I've sort of fallen behind with Welcome to NHK. But not by too much. I absolutely adore the intro song to Busou Renkin. It's so...I don't know, full of hope.

*looks forward to catching up on some anime over break*
Step One

- Make a post (public, friends-locked, filtered... whatever you're comfortable with) to your LJ. The post should contain your list of 10 holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple and fun ("I'd love a Snape/Hermione icon that's just for me") to medium ("I wish for _____ on DVD") to really big ("All I want for Christmas is a new car/computer/house/TV.") The important thing is, make sure these wishes are things you really, truly want.

- If you wish for real possible things, make sure you include some sort of contact info in your post, whether it's your address or just your email address where Santa (or one of his elves) could get in touch with you.

- Also, make sure you post some version of these guidelines in your LJ, or link to this post (it'll be public) so that the holiday joy will spread.

Step Two

- Surf around your flist (or friend’s friends, or just random journals) to see who has posted their list. And now here's the important part:

- If you see a wish you can grant, and it's in your heart to do so, make someone's wish come true. Sometimes someone's trash is another's treasure, and if you have a leather jacket you don't want or a gift certificate you won't use--or even know where you could get someone's dream purebred Basset Hound for free--do it.

You needn't spend money on these wishes unless you want to. The point isn't to put people out, it's to provide everyone a chance to be someone else's holiday elf--to spread the joy. Gifts can be made anonymously or not--it's your call.

There are no rules with this project, no guarantees, and no strings attached. Just... wish, and it might come true. Give, and you might receive. And you'll have the joy of knowing you made someone's holiday special.

Feel free to point me towards your wishlists if I haven't commented yet on them. :D (Actually, even if I have, if you could leave a link to the post, it'd make keeping track of all these wishlists a lot easier!)
First, I hope everyone had a great Halloween. Mine was...busy and ended somewhat disappointing.  I dressed up as a black cat, and this was the pumpkin I carved. Which, unfortunately, got stolen not more than half an hour after I set it outside. ;_;


But anyway, the point of this post is about Christmas/Winter cards! I'll be making my own postcards to send out this year and will be sending them out sometime after December 18 (last day of finals) and before January. Comments are screened. Please leave me your address if you want a card! I already have a few people's addresses, but I either don't have anyone else's, or else I've forgotten it. ^^;; Please leave a comment, ne? (I know I left a lot of comments for posts like this in other people's ljs already.)
