I came out with around the same amount of words as 2015. :3;; Still aiming for that ever elusive 150,000 words!

Happy New Year to all!

This will be a fairly short post this time, considering how little I wrote in 2015. 2015 has not been a writing year. :') I kind of fell out of the habit of writing. Let's see if I can get myself back in the mindset.

FFnet now has an official app. I just tried it out, and it's pretty cool~. Very easy on the eyes, lots of options for changing font, simple to browse. Stories, favorites, and follows all show up, very convenient. The review box is also right on the screen, easily accessible, so people might be more willing to leave comments. It's still a work-in-progress and getting updated a lot. Hope there will be an option to upload fic in the future, and that the PM feature will get fixed. There's a link to the inbox, but nothing shows up. XD; Oh, and I think there's no option to favorite or follow stories at the moment.

Some memes from [livejournal.com profile] seta_suzume. :D
1. Write down the names of 10 characters.
2. Get prompts from people using numbers instead of names.
3. Write a fic of fifteen words or less for every prompt, using the characters determined by the numbers.
4. Author, DO NOT read the prompts before you choose your characters.

If anyone wants to give me some prompts with numbers to kick me out of my writer's block...
(example: 1 & 2 have a problem)

And now a ten things meme.

Ten Things
Ten things that you think are common in your fic
Ten things you think are uncommon in your fic although commonly found in fic in general
Ten things you wish were more true of your fic

Sign-ups are open for [livejournal.com profile] parallelsfic, until June 29th! I'm probably not going to sign up this year since I'm in such a slump with writing. But I will haunt the prompts later to see if I'm able to write anything. =x There are some series I'm eying that I hope people request!

I'm back from Japan! Trying to catch up with everything I've missed in the past two weeks. :'D; (I slept two days away, OTL. Terrible, terrible jetlag. Still trying to reorient myself.) First up is my yearly fic round up post~. Then, pictures from the trip? Maybe. I've missed so many posts and entries, ahhh.

How about some ending lines? I noticed a pattern and thought it was...interesting, haha. Last 21 ending lines from fics I published. Chapters are included as separate endings.

Oh, and I hit 1000 LJ posts 4 posts ago. Didn't even know. XD;

last 21 ending lines )
This is what I do when I get stuck on writing.

First line meme snagged from [livejournal.com profile] seta_suzume! The idea is to list out the last 21 first lines I've written in fic, but I don't have that many fics. XD; So, have 12 first lines from me, the ones I've written this year. Most are from the beginning of new chapters instead of the very beginning of the fic. There are some unpublished lines as well, ones for fics that I should be posting soon. *keeps fingers crossed*

Am currently polishing a fic that I hope to be able to finish this weekend! It is yet another LSK fic. :3; I'm a little stuck over how to end it.

In the meantime, have a meme! Taken from [personal profile] darkicedragon.
Pick a character I've written and I will explain the top five ideas/concepts/etc I keep in mind while writing that character that I believe are essential to accurately depicting them.

I'm pretty sure I did this meme before, but now I can't seem to find it. Maybe I didn't do it after all? XD Oh well, there should be new characters to talk about this time. 8D

[community profile] eastasianfandomgiftbag is starting again! It's a wishlist-based fanworks exchange for East Asian fandoms. :)
Livejournal, why do your cuts look so weird now? D: This makes me not want to use LJ-cuts anymore. Anyway, testing delayed/scheduled posting (this is a feature I like)... so people won't know how late I stayed up. *coughs* I was in the middle of finally commenting on people's posts when my keyboard suddenly stopped working (what's wrong??) so the posts are once again going into my saved tabs!

5 Character Meme Redux

1. Leave a comment to this post, specifically saying that you would like a letter.
2. I will give you a letter.
3. Post the names of five fictional characters whose names begin with that letter, and your thoughts on each. The characters can be from books, movies, or TV shows.

I received the letter D from [personal profile] darkicedragon. First person I thought of? Darkicedragon! :DDDD But I guess you're not a character. =P

I got tagged by [livejournal.com profile] absolutehymn007 for this ology meme. Have some Lucathiaology! That is way too long a name...

THE RULES: Once you have been tagged, you are supposed to wipe out my answers and supply your own. After, choose at least 10 people to be tagged. If you were tagged, it's because I want to know more about you.

(I'm not tagging anyone... whoever wants to do it... =P)

Let others know a little more about yourself! Re-post this as your name followed by "ology".

Lucathiaology )

Yu Wo posted part 3 of No Hero v7! More of Daren and his butler~. :D She has also plurked a hilarious story about Judgment. She owed one of her writer friends 2 stories, so she's been working on that. One is a BL story. She posted it locked in her blog, but the password is in the entry itself. XD; I don't think I actually know the characters. The second fic she owed was "Judgment doing it himself" which a lot of people read as "Judgment doing himself..." OTL. Stop it with the dirty minds!! |D;;; In the end, Yu Wo decided to write "a day in the life of Judgment", so we get to follow Judgment for a full day. :D She challenged herself to writing the story in real time through plurks, so I was watching gleefully as each plurk went up. The story has been awwwwweeeesome so far because we get to stalk Judgment! I can't wait until she completes it (she stopped at one point and went to sleep and said that she'd finish up the rest and post it to her blog). The story takes place after volume 8's conclusion. Three years, to be exact! So it'll be quite a while before we ever see this translated. ^^;; I'm really loving this revisiting of the LSK characters. I really hope she'll write more of the LSK verse.

Also, new No Hero merchandise will be sold between 4/20 and 4/29 (preorder).

I received the letter F from [livejournal.com profile] cairnsy~. Had a lot of characters to choose from but decided on these five from series I'm currently following. I wonder if I'm missing anyone obvious. XD;;

my answers )

Haven't mentioned this yet, but No Hero, which was slated to be 7 volumes in all, with 6 volumes already published and the 7th and last volume soon to be published, is now going to be 8 volumes long. Legend of Sun Knight almost went the same route, with the last volume being too long for one book. I kind of wish LSK had been expanded!! Yu Wo has started posting teasers of No Hero v7 in her blog~. I wonder when the official release date will be? (And when will she start working on Female Warrior and the next volume of Gong Hua?)

Watched the second Prince of Tennis movie. It was hilarious. Nothing as epic as Tezuka killing the dinosaurs, but still... does this movie want me to ship Fuji and Kite? Shiraishi and Tezuka? XD;; I'm going to post up some screencaps later, haha.
Trying to write... but am having super duper writer's block, and now I'm so, so sleepy. Bored by my own writing...? I hope to finish Lessons in Demeanor before the month ends though. So that leaves me one day.

Last set of answers to the 7 questions meme! Questions from [livejournal.com profile] kedi_kedi and [livejournal.com profile] perkyandproud.

2 more sets of answers to 7 questions )

New No Hero bundle from Yu Wo. Comes with a a bag, a calendar, two cards, and a short story titled "Good kid, bad kid." I...really want that bundle. Oh dear. Now that I've pretty much read everything Yu Wo wrote, I want, like, all of the specials she sells. (Throughout the post, there's mention of LSK stuff - this I ordered already - 1/2 Prince autograph session, some Kill No More merchandise...). x___x I'll need to make use of an agent since I live overseas...

Yu Wo posted a teaser for "Good kid, bad kid." Features Daren as the main character, set during No Hero! :O Very, very fascinating. The setting feels completely different with the 3rd person POV, since No Hero's completely in 1st person normally. The teaser only goes up to the point where Daren goes out for his morning run...

Went to Kinokuniya today and picked up volume 09 of the Tenipuri Kanzenban s2. Yagyuu and Niou on the cover. <3333 My store never had this in stock! Or if they did, they sold out, so I had to special order it. =/ I ended up getting v10 before I got volume 9. The three page comic at the end of volume 9 is a continuation of the beetle match between Atobe and Shiraishi, haha. Yagyuu in casual clothes on the inside~ ♥ This volume is so worth it.

I also picked up
-Ouji to Majou to Himegimi to v1 (there are more volumes out, but I wanted to see if I liked this series. It's about a prince who's reincarnated as a girl, and a bunch of princesses who are reincarnated as guys. They were all cursed by a witch)
-Otomen v14
-Yukarism v1-2 (also about reincarnation. girl reincarnated as a guy XD;; )
-Shiawase Shokutaku (a collection of short manga by Minami Maki who draws Seiyuu Ka + Special A)
-Magic Kaito special edition volume 4 (Whoot, looks like there'll also be a volume 5 of Magic Kaito!)
-Gyakuten Kenji artbook (finally I get to see what Ema Skye's shoes look like! =P I so needed this when I was cosplaying her)

Usotsuki Lily v6 should be out, but my store doesn't have it in stock. =/ A good chunk of what I buy lately... are genderbenders.
Comment to this post (stating that you want to do the meme), and I will list seven things I want you to talk about. They might make sense or they might be totally random. Then post that list, with your commentary, to your journal. Other people can get lists from you, and the meme merrily perpetuates itself.
(I will be very bad at questions!)

Here are my answers to questions from [livejournal.com profile] alexdonnelly, [livejournal.com profile] sac527, [livejournal.com profile] turkeyimposter, and [livejournal.com profile] absolutehymn007. :)

A ridiculous long reflection about my 2011 writing! Here's last year's reflection.

I told myself last year I would not start new multi-parters this year without finishing my previous WIPs, but apparently I forgot all about that in the face of my LSK obsession, hah...

talk about my fics in chronological order )

fic meme )
I knew it! [personal profile] darkicedragon was my writer. XD I kind of figured it out from our conversations, and then when fics went live, the writing (and the fandoms) convinced me even more. (Thank you once again for writing me so many fics. I adored all of them! The Double Arts one and the NG Life one were both so beautiful ♥ and the others so much fun.) Heh, I think we'll always have a huge chance of matching each other, though I did match with someone else for my recipient, which was very cool! I love having different recipients and writers each year, as well as matching on fandoms I've never written before. For me, Yuletide is always the time I branch out to fandoms I might not have written on my own either because I hadn't read the series closely enough, or I just don't have plotbunnies for fics for the series. I rely heavily on the optional details provided by my recipient because usually I don't have too many plotbunnies for the series myself... which made this year very hard because the optional details I received were broad and gave me too much free reign! (It led to me considering very strange ideas...I'm so sorry about this!)

I matched on Hunter x Hunter with [livejournal.com profile] justwolf. I was mostly offering fandoms I was currently into (like Legend of Sun Knight, Noblesse, 1/2 Prince, everything I had nominated) as well as fandoms with short canon I thought I could easily review again (like movies or short manga series). With HxH, I thought, "Hey, Hunter x Hunter, I'm getting into that again now that the hiatus is over and the new anime is showing!" So I added that in my list of offers. And matched on it. And went, "oh dear, there's 30 volumes of the manga out..." I don't feel I could characterize Gon or Killua very well without rereading the manga because it's been a long time since I've read the manga, and then it was on and off with all the hiatuses. I spent quite some time rereading. (and loved it)

Hunter x Hunter reread. I cried )

Fic commentary: The Shape of His Devotion (Hunter x Hunter) )

Fic commentary: Sleeping Beauty, or the Unconscious Man on the Bed (Hunter x Hunter) )

Fic commentary: The Names of His Comrades (Noblesse) )
Kaleidoscope nominations have begun! The exchange is open to rare chromatic sources, and exchange content includes fic, art, graphics, vids, and even picspams, I think.

New round of No True Pair has begun! Comment with a list of 8 characters. Watch as they get matched up with miscellaneous prompts. Prompts will be revealed on September 11, mixing and matching the characters. This is what the previous round looked like. I can't wait to see how the characters I listed will be matched up~.
