I wonder, if I update Memories of the Future, if I'll get any response. :'D

It's been four years since I've last updated it. OTL (This is even worse than taking 3 years to finish writing Bittersweet Sweetness...) Was digging through my documents to see if I could find my partially written Invincible chapters. Came upon my notes for Memories of the Future instead, and whoa, I actually had quite an outline for it! With snippets of future scenes written out already for each chapter!

Lucathia, did you actually write all that?? You're terrible at outlines! T___T; Or even jotting down notes!

Thank goodness for this detailed outline though. I might just be able to finish writing this fic... one day. :'D

I better update all of my current WIPs more so they don't end up in this state ahhhhh. Hm, I was planning on updating Follow the Sign next, but wow, I am stumped. So, moving on...

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.

Yuletide!

[livejournal.com profile] yuletide author names have been revealed! Thank you Esmenet for the beautiful Mekakushi no Kuni fic. When I went through the prompts list to find a prompt to write a treat for during Madness, I came upon your letter with your Mekakushi no Kuni prompt and thought, huh, what if you were my writer? And you were, wow!

Thank you [livejournal.com profile] darkicedragon for all the treats! I knew it was you. XD Noblesse! Tegami Bachi! I'm so happy you wrote Noblesse. :) Tegami Bachi was sure unexpected. ;D

I wrote three fics (1 more than for all my previous Yuletides, whoot!) I... already babbled about them when I reposted them here.

Into the Light (Penguin Revolution future fic, Yukari, 5038 words) - for [livejournal.com profile] bookchan
AO3 | LJ

Santa Said Come (Yoroshiku Master, Rihito, 2866 words) - for [livejournal.com profile] cairnsy
AO3 | LJ

Stuck on a Carpet (1/2 Prince, Yang Ming/Lolidragon, 4140 words) - for [livejournal.com profile] darkicedragon
AO3 | LJ

I managed to write 12k words in one week. It's like NaNo all over again! *flails* Yes, one week, because I didn't start until very near the deadline. It was one week of crazy writing! After NaNo, 1000 words has become so easy, except nothing happens for me in 1k words. Which then meant the fics got longer, and longer, and longer... when I was reading other people's Yuletide fics, I was very envious of how much they could say with much fewer words than me.

stuff that amused me this Yuletide )
Happy holidays, everyone! :)

I came home very late yesterday and was going to crash after not having slept much at all (I even fell asleep while playing video games with my brother during our family gathering, but right after we stopped shooting zombies and started playing something else, I couldn't keep my eyes open anymore). So yeah, I was going to crash but then Yuletide went live. Of course I had to forgo sleep to get at my gift fics, but even then, I only managed to read one fic before I just couldn't stay awake anymore, and since I stayed up so late and didn't sleep much the day before, it meant I woke up later than usual too. :'D Anyway, on to the lovely fics!

music is no match for happiness (and grandness none for music) (Mekakushi no Kuni, Namiki)
This is just pure love. Namiki is perhaps my most favorite character of all times, except almost no fanwork exists for the series, so I never have the chance to fangirl over him or the series! This piece reminds me why I adore Namiki so much, and it makes me want to read the series all over again (I already have, many times). I also feel like I should be writing the next chapter of my Mekakuni fic, and I think I will after Yuletide. :) The prose in this piece is really beautiful, and Namiki is just so very Namiki. I will be rereading this a lot!

Explore (Noblesse, M-21)
This fic made me giggle a lot. It's just M-21 exploring Frankenstein's house, which is such a normal thing to do, but when it's Frankenstein's house + M-21's paranoia... *g* I was so amused that I couldn't even leave a comment right away since I was busy laughing. Oh M-21. <3 I love him lots, and this fic has him just right. :)

Never Give Up (Tegami Bachi, Vincent Alcott)
Minor character love! It took me a bit to remember who he was. It's been a while since I watched the first season. *g* But oh man, this piece, this piece makes me want to write. I am amazed at how much he was fleshed out here since he doesn't show up much at all in the series. I think I might be in love with this character now, and I am also very inspired by what he goes through here.

Since I was away all day on the 24th, I didn't get to check out the full prompts list for Madness. ): I tried to browse it at my brother's house, but it wasn't like I could write there! I'm still contemplating if I should furiously write a treat in the last few hours before Madness fics go live, but I've also been having doubts about my writing. :') But then, my lovely recipients have been so awesome and have left such nice comments already (it makes me want to write mooore for them), so I guess my writing isn't completely terrible?

I haven't managed to read much other fic yet outside of my gifts, but there are also two awesome Yoroshiku Master fics this year! Both about Rihito. *g* So my Yoroshiku Master craving has been sated (well, mostly). I just have my Oresama Teacher craving left. I suppose I'll have to attack that one day myself. ;)

Stuff about Yuletide that amused me #2: Two of my gifts are exactly the same length at 1092 words. *g* Must be a magical number!
oh man, I wrote up such a long and complicated post, but hopefully this is helpful...I didn't write one last year right away, or did I even write one? Guh, it was so hard to decide what to request! This is my letter for [livejournal.com profile] yuletide, an obscure fandom fic exchange. <3

Hi Yuletide Writer! This year, my requests are all manga/manhwa, and fairly obscure ones! The first two are both manga by Tsukuba Sakura. I really love her works and was very tempted to pick Penguin Revolution too. ♥ There were a lot of other fandoms on the list that I love too, but these ones are the ones that either I haven't seen much fanwork for, or the fanwork was mostly done by me...yeah, haha. So I'd love to see someone else's take on these! And if my assigned writer (or anyone else) checks out one of the other fandoms on this list, I'd be really happy to have gotten more people interested in the series. ^___^ I will try to provide info about how long the series are and how you might find them.

info on the series, my favorite characters, and what I'd like to see in each )

Apologies if this is too much to read through. |D What this all means is...

1. Yoroshiku Master -> Please give me more of Rihito. <3
2. Mekakushi no Kuni/Land of the Blindfolded - Please give me more of Namiki. <3
3. Oresama Sensei/Oresama Teacher - Please give me more of oblivious Hayasaka and crossdressing Mafuyu. <3
4. Noblesse - Please give me more of M-21. <3

Anything else is all optional (well, crossdressing Mafuyu is optional too, but I would adore it so much). I hope they are helpful and will jog your creativity rather than limit you. Thank you for writing for me!
This chapter took much effort. I started writing it during AX in the Artist Alley, but I thought I was being pretty rude typing instead of paying attention to customers, so I stopped pretty quickly, haha. I continued this during some car rides afterward, but the bulk of the writing and editing came later. I think...the slice of life aspect of this story is what stumps me the most. There's no conflict or anything!! I'm just not good enough of a writer to write about nothing happening.

I'm pretty excited though, to discover that Mekakushi no Kuni has been reprinted. Pretty covers! I especially want this one with Namiki and Marota. So buying this the next time I go to Kinokuniya. Man, this means I'll have the Chinese, English, and Japanese versions of this manga. XD

chapter 21: the road home )
Exactly two months since the last installment. I will stop torturing myself with writing long romance fics after I finish this fic. XD; Only 9 more parts left after this one! This sure is an incredibly sappy story that leaves me with warm fuzzies even when I'm writing it. Oh Namiki. ♥ I wish there were more of a fandom for this series. This chapter is so short and is mostly just talking. .__.

Entirely no time to write with JLPT looming around the corner and essays to churn out, but I'd hate to be dropped from the challenge! I posted a rough draft of this before. Please ignore that. For everyone who gave me their address in my card post, I got your address safely! Cards will be sent out late December. I kind of have only been skimming my flist these days, so if I missed your card post, let me know?

chapter 14: news; letter )
I'm always pushing the deadline for [livejournal.com profile] 30_kisses. I wasted too much time over the weekend fixing my scene dividers for my old fics over at FFnet. I'm fine with using horizontal lines for scene dividers from now on for that site...but seriously, did they have to remove the existing dashes and whatnot from old fics? It's a disaster. Some of my fics aren't readable at all without scene dividers. I went through some and gave up on the rest. It's too much to fix. I was going to start reading someone's fic, but since their scene dividers disappeared too, I was turned off from reading right away since the jumbled text is a lot harder to get through. *sigh* I could've spent my time doing more productive stuff than fixing formatting problems.

fic: Memories of the Future ch.13 (Mekakushi no Kuni, Namiki x Someya) )
It's been a while since my last post. ^^ I've been wasting my time watching stuff on nicovideo as well as spending too much time playing TCGs. Then there's class too. Bah.

This video make me laugh a lot:
Tsukimori, Koi no ABC. Yamato from Over Drive and Tsukimori from La Corda d'Oro have the same seiyuu (Taniyama Kishou). Here, Tsukimori has Yamato's dialogue...it is so out of character for Tsukimori. XDDD

And now, some fic that would not get written. This is my sad attempt at writing romance.

Memories of the Future Chapter 12 )
Lazy me, or else I'd have gotten this part done sooner. When will I ever finish this fic? Finally, I'm getting to something...interesting? ^^ I had to reread the series AGAIN since it's been forever and I've forgotten everything.

Er, it seems that I'm averaging a chapter every 2 months. How sad. If it weren't because of the deadline, I wouldn't have gotten around to this chapter either.
