Title: New Horizons -That Day Back Then-
Fandom: The Legend of Sun Knight
Words: 4,088
Summary: That day back then, Grisia goes to search for his big sister. At a pivotal moment, Grisia makes up his mind. All it took was a nervous habit. Everything changes. Alternative take on a canon event. AU
Notes: For the [community profile] whole_new_world Alternate Reality/Changing Canon prompt "Altered Past." Prompt table over here. I've always wanted to explore this scene, so here's an AU take on it.

Title: A Vice-Captain's Tale - Suggestion #12
Fandom: The Legend of Sun Knight
Words: 2,332
Summary: The vice-captains of the Twelve Holy Knights never thought that their jobs would differ so vastly from their expectations. Tyler has really been missing out.
Notes: Watch me continue to write at the speed of a snail, but hey, we have finally arrived at the final chapter of this story! (Sort of. There's still a "short" epilogue and extra after this.) Thanks for sticking around~. As a reminder, I am no longer doing previous/next chapter links. Please use the tags to navigate to different parts of the story!

Suggestion #12: Always Stay True )
Title: Grace -Mirror, Mirror-
Fandom: The Legend of Sun Knight
Words: 681
Summary: That man in the mirror, no matter our passing similarities, isn't me.
Notes: A companion piece to Grace, a story which I probably won't ever finish at this rate. Written as a response to [community profile] getyourwordsout's Mirror Mirror challenge, where I had to start with "I've heard of crossed telephone lines and party lines, but I've never heard of…" and use the location Athens, Greece. Here we get Grace's POV for the first time.

More on Fanime, starting with the rest of the stuff I bought~. Quite a shopping trip this year. XD


Arslan Senki poster was from Friday's swap meet~

close ups )

I find it very cool that Fanime has official photographers. :D They've also already uploaded photos! Here are some that I was in.

Re:Zero gathering on Friday
All I can say is that the photographers pretty much asked the cosplayers to do the dab at every gathering I went to. I was the Emilia on the right.

Shounen Jump Sunday Gathering
I was Kayano on Sunday, and I was very much hoping there would be a Koro-sensei around. There was! *____*

Shounen Jump girls beating Mineta from My Hero Academia. A specific request. XD;;

The albums have a ton of pictures from all the gatherings, if anyone's interested in what cosplays there were at Fanime this year. o/

some other pics of lucathia )

I might do another post with cosplay pics of other people and some thoughts on events I went to. If I get around to it.

BTW, I went to see Guardians of the Galaxy v2 yesterday, and let me tell you, I cried buckets. ;__; (I'm quite pleased to see many Yondu fics crop up in the fandom though. All my feels.)

I've changed my layout on livejournal because I can no longer make changes to what the comment links look like with my account level, so I ended up with a lot of broken images with that layout. This one is clean enough, I suppose, though it also means that commenting will bring you to livejournal's default pages. Boo. Oh well, it's functional, if not pretty.

Title: My Friend, the Pope (in-training) - Part 10: Charlotte
Fandom: The Legend of Sun Knight
Words: 2,163
Summary: Grisia wasn't chosen as the Sun Knight. This is the legend of the strongest Pope in all history. AU.
Notes: I have a feeling few people thought Charlotte would have a POV. XD

My diligence has paid off. Rank 1! :D

It's mostly because a lot of people have stopped playing. But at least I can claim to be the #1 diligent LSK fan, yes?


Overall achievement ranking, based on completed tasks. The latest task I completed was having 10 legendary heroes. I finally evolved Grisia into a legendary hero. The order I evolved them: Aldrizzt, Georgo, Laica, Roland, Valica, Chasel, Pope, Neo, Pink, and finally Grisia. Aldrizzt and Laica deal the most damage. Georgo and Neo are good for defense. Roland is pretty good with group damage as well. Valica is so-so. Good for dealing damage to single enemies. Pope isn't very different from not being evolved. I haven't upped Pink or Grisia's skills yet to see how their legendary versions compare to their normal versions. But legendary versions can equip their divine weapons, so that does make them stronger in that aspect at least. I only have a few characters left that I can evolve. Ceo, Elmairy, Queen of Moon Orchid, and Ecilan. Even though I already have Chikus's Divine Blaze Sword, the character himself is still elusive, as is Lesus. ): I think I need around 2~3 more of each of them before I can evolve them. And sadly, Aivis and Vival don't have legendary versions, despite already being maxed out. Even the Queen of Moon Orchid has a legendary version, yet the two of you Twelve Holy Knights don't!!

Fandom: The Legend of Sun Knight
Words: 1,219
Summary: A little girl bids on Grisia for a charity date auction.
Notes: I wrote a very random ficlet for the Alphabet Challenge over at [livejournal.com profile] getyourwordsout. The challenge is to write a story, scene, or poem that begins each line with every letter of the alphabet. My starting and ending letter is G. So, it goes from G->H->I->L, etc etc, until I come back to G. This is a 27 sentence ficlet. XD

2016 in fic

Jan. 1st, 2017 06:57 pm
lucathia: (fishbones: flower background 2)
I came out with around the same amount of words as 2015. :3;; Still aiming for that ever elusive 150,000 words!

(Previous years: 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008, 2007, 2006)

Happy holidays! Wishing everyone a great end of the year. :) 2016 hasn't been a very fun year at all. Hoping I'll be able to post more next year. I have a lot of posts I've been meaning to make that are long overdue, so you'll probably be seeing them pop up over the next two weeks while I'm on vacation. Look forward to them? XD Here's a fic that's long overdue too. I began writing this little oneshot last year for Father's Day, but it just refused to get written. It finally cooperated after... I don't even know how long. At least, it's long enough that it's no longer Father's Day of the same year, haha. Merry Christmas instead? :'D

Title: Improvements Imminent
Fandom: The Legend of Sun Knight
Words: 1,894
Summary: Grisia decides it would be a good idea to cut his own hair. It's not. So Neo intervenes. But surely, he would have improved with practice.
Notes: Inspired by Ya Sha's comic companion to Unbeatable, where Neo cuts Aldrizzt's hair and mentions that he's taken care of brats for years. And so, I wanted a fic where Neo cuts Grisia's hair. :3

Title: A Poor Imitation
Fandom: The Legend of Sun Knight
Words: 5,640
Summary: Once, I had been great. A king maker. A sought after advisor. A hidden weapon. I am Dragon's Saint Brigandine. I am a shirt.
Notes: This is basically LSK from the point of view of a shirt. XD I did not think it would be 5.6k.

(Letter for [livejournal.com profile] yuletide)

Dear Yuletide Writer,

Thank you for writing for me! The following is meant to help you if you're the type who likes extra information, such as knowing more about my general likes regarding fic and what I like about the fandoms and characters I'm requesting.

This letter is meant to be helpful. Optional details are optional, so please don't feel pressured by the letter! Take whatever is helpful from the letter and feel free to ignore the rest if it isn't helpful. I've requested my favorite character from each fandom, and I really look forward to your spin on them.

The General Stuff )

Request 1: Akatsuki no Yona )

Request 2: Aldnoah Zero )

Request 3: orange )

Request 4: ERASED )

Request 5: The Legend of Sun Knight )
Oh, it's been so long since I posted that I didn't even realize Picasa Web Albums is no longer around. Guess it's back to Photobucket for me... or some other image host as an alternative. Hope these pics work. Maybe I should take another look at LJ's albums. Maybe they've been improved since I last used them. Here's hoping~.


But anyway. I'm posting because I made it to Rank 11 in the LSK game~~. :D That's in the upper 98% range for accomplishments. I'm tied with tenth. If I keep this up, maybe I can even make it into the top ten? XD;; Top box is overall ranking, while the bottom box is the ranking among my buddies. There's a lot of overlap between the two lists, since I think all the regular players are buddies with each other.

Fandom: The Legend of Sun Knight

Summary: The vice-captains of the Twelve Holy Knights never thought that their jobs would differ so vastly from their expectations. Tyler has really been missing out.
Notes: While I was working on this chapter, I quite suddenly found a litter of kittens. What a coincidence. XD (They're adorable)

Suggestion #8: Speak Your Mind

Suggestion #9: Prepare Small Gifts )

Suggestion #10: Take Daily Baths
I need to write a belated Anime Expo post, and now I have an Anime Revolution post to add to that too. Went off to Vancouver beginning of August. Kind of an abrupt decision but so worth it! I had a blast visiting Vancouver and [livejournal.com profile] kiyutsuna. We even cosplayed Legend of Sun Knight together. DREAM COME TRUE. ♥

/dusts off LJ. It sure is getting dusty here... Have an update~.

Title: Out the Window - Part 5: Ecilan
Fandom: The Legend of Sun Knight
Words: 1,735
Summary: We'd thrown all common sense out the window. Whatever happens, we'll always be the Twelve Holy Knights. Even if a halted, mass Resurrection mixed with a half-activated seal causes all twelve of us to swap bodies, we still have to end the Demon King. Off to the battlefield we go... as each other. A continuation of V8, but with bodyswap.
Notes: I've been experimenting and mostly writing this story out by hand instead of on the computer. Really makes my hand hurt. :'D

Part 5: Ecilan )
While everyone is caught up in the Pokemon Go rage, I'm off in my corner catching holy knights, lol. The LSK cell phone game is turning out a lot more involved and thought out than my first impressions. XD You can have buddies, equip armor/weapons, evolve those armors/weapons, go on quests, evolve your character cards, learn captain skills, participate in weekly ranking battles against other players, etc. There's not much story, but there are a lot of little details that really makes this feel like the LSK world. For example, there's probably a card for every nickname Sun has given that you can think of. I still have a lot of missing cards, but so far, I've already come across Strawberry, Didi, Slime, Deatheo, and Wastelan. There's even a card for church hermit.

And my goodness. So. Many. Characters. Can you believe even Jacques, the third son of Baron Gerland, has a card? So far, I have main character cards of Grisia, Elmairy, Laica, Ceo, Demos, Aivis, Neo, Pink, the Pope, Vidar, Aldrizzt, Queen of Moon Orchid (lol, yes, even she has a card, and she's considered a main character), Valica, and Illu. From the 38th gen Twelve Holy Knights, I'm still missing Lesus, Vival, Georgo, Roland, Chikus, and Ecilan. So elusive! I got a few Adairs, but he wasn't a main character card. I hope there's another version of him out there. DDDD:

I'm currently gathering materials to evolve Elmairy and Aldrizzt, and I just unlocked the ability to upgrade my weapons. Sadly, I don't have enough leadership points left to allow my team to equip very many weapons or pieces of armor. :'D So, they've mostly been going on the battlefield without equipping anything. But now that I can upgrade weapons, maybe I won't keep getting slaughtered. XDD


I'm just so amused by this game. Look, even Sun's pink facial mask is part of the game. After getting 700 achievement points, you receive a pink facial mask as a reward. I had no clue what exactly the pink facial mask would be. It turns out that it's headgear. XD

In the blink of an eye, several years have passed since I wrote summaries for 39. In the meantime, I actually finished translating 39 volume 1 but never finished writing the summaries. Now that the translations of these chapters are being posted at Prince Revolution!, summaries probably aren’t needed anymore. :’D

I had finished the summary of Chapter 4 Part/Section 1, so I guess I’ll post it here. I have just posted the actual translation of the chapter over at Prince Revolution. So, feel free to go over there to read the chapter and then come back to read my thoughts/summary if you’re interested. Don’t know if there’s any interest for summaries/thoughts of the rest of the chapters since translations will be up soon anyway.

Yu Wo has yet to release 39 volume 2 (4 year wait ahhhh), but I hope it’ll happen this year. She’s been working on it and posting teasers, so it might actually happen soon. So far, the teasers are about Elaro and a bandit group. Adair’s involved as well. ;)

Past summaries can be found through this tag.
