I started reading Haikyuu. 8D

Title: Don't Call Me King
Fandom: Haikyuu!
Words: 1,161
Summary: "Don't call me that." "Why not? King sounds so much cooler than getting called the strongest decoy!" A short Kageyama character study.
Notes: For [livejournal.com profile] 31_days, May 1, ignoring all the voices from my wall. Just rehashing canon here, so nothing new really...

Read more... )

I will be attempting several of [livejournal.com profile] 31_days' May themes (but not all of them), and I'll also be doing some other various oneshots. Am just trying to get back into more spontaneous writing. (Watch, the rest all turn out to be LSK...)
I had a hand in this month's themes over at [livejournal.com profile] 31_days when I was called as back-up. XD Really cool seeing how people are interpreting the themes. :D (the themes were inspired by the Hyakunin Isshu.) I want to write some myself too, but there's also [community profile] no_true_pair happening this month, and I'm quite behind on that (as in, I haven't actually written a single thing). I picked out one theme from each of my lists for the first week to mull over. I don't think I'll be able to finish anything by the end of the week, but I do have a lot of ideas.

prompts I'm mulling over )

The 8th manhua bundle of Legend of Sun Knight has finally been announced! \o\ This was supposed to be released in August during CWT (a doujinshi convention in Taiwan), but it was pulled at the last minute, something about how the publisher wants to try selling it online instead. I wonder why they decided to do that? Maybe because of demand? They can probably sell more online... At least it's easier for me to order through Kingstone than going through an agent to buy stuff from CWT, so I guess this is a good thing for me. Unless it turns out that they won't ship this oversees (which I'm beginning to think might be the case).

This titles of the chapters in this part of the manhua are the following:
♥ Don't forget to eat breakfast.
♥ Never be the cause of embarrassment, especially in front of your teacher.
♥ Do not hand the Death Knight over to the lich.

Looks like it'll still be covering the beginning of volume 2 of the novels (though I can't recall what the third chapter title is referring to). The side story included with the bundle is about the Moon Knight and is titled "Haughtiness". :DDD The bundle comes with an envelop. I think that's Ice on it? :3

translation of the summaries )
I've been browsing Dreamwidth writing communities since LJ has been down quite a lot and I needed places to lurk, or else I'd have felt so stranded. Lots of awesome writing communities!

fic_promptly - prompt posts everyday, with lots of people pitching in prompts. I really want to write something for this. There's one Noblesse prompt that I would love to write, but I can't seem to get started, so I guess I won't be able to do it. :3;; Am still turning it around in my mind. Meanwhile... *tosses prompts at people* I hope someone writes some prompts I tossed in. I am kind of stirring up plunnies myself with these, haha.

hard_mode (video game big bang) is something I'd love to do... since 10k sounds doable for a Big Bang. XD; (10k is like... a very long oneshot!) I currently have no ideas for video game fics though, so... *mulls on this one* If I somehow write a video game fic over 10k before June, I'd join this. Unlikely that it'll happen though, since my writing commitments are now all over the place. (I'm still wondering if I can finish my NaNo by June and print it... maybe if I go back and edit/expand the first section and only print that section as a stand alone...)

no_true_pair looks so fun, but the current round has already started. I think I'll keep on eye on this community for the next round that's run this way. :3

As for my writing commitments... currently, I still have [livejournal.com profile] 31days_exchange to finish (I asked for an extension! Still, I better finish within this month...) and [livejournal.com profile] 30_kisses with Namiki/Kaichou (only 9 parts left out of 30, but my inspiration seems to have completely died. I already plotted out the rest last August, er, more than half a year ago. An earthquake was a major part of the plot, but now I feel it's more of a plot device than anything... I don't think I can write it in a meaningful way). I also want to work on my NaNo more and print it for myself, but eh, June deadline? That's just around the corner!

With so much I want to write... I think I'll end up writing nothing. :'D
Ahhhh, I only got around to 8 drabbles, and 1 was posted past midnight. Don't know if I should continue now that the deadline has passed (though maybe one day past the deadline is better than never doing it?) :') Well, here's the ones I've posted so far.

Yu Yu Hakusho - My Lips are Sealed...Or Not, 249 words

Detective Conan - Too Large an Earring, 100 words

1/2 Prince - Food is the Best Weapon, 314 words

Bakuman - Use a Ruler, 210 words

Kaichou wa Maid-sama - Unremarkable, Unthreatening, Safe, 132 words

Bakuman - The Only Boundaries, 145 words

Noblesse - And Then What Happened, 166 words

The Legend of Sun Knight - Sweetness Mixed with Dread, 315 words

And this oneshot was from yesterday morning:
Oresama Teacher - Something Strange, 1,705 words

I wrote a crazy amount yesterday, because this is also part of yesterday's word count. If not for that, I probably could have finished if I had spent my time writing more of the other themes instead...
Prince of Tennis - He Never Knew part 5, 2,367 words

I still feel bad for not finishing all the themes, ahhhh. *counts* 15 more to go. I'm only...halfway? Noo. They were inspiring too much longfic from me. XDD But oh man, writing all that without thinking about what I was writing at all... the tenses really make me cringe.
...failed. XD; (It's past midnight now) But oh well, I'll continue poking at these... though I don't know if I'll crosspost them. =x

Also, this one didn't actually take an hour to write. XD; (had other stuff to do).

Rating: PG
Words: 100
Notes: for [livejournal.com profile] 31days_exchange, 31_days masterlist.

He thought he'd done his research... )
And now I resort to drabbles. ;) The next few, if I finish them, will be back-dated so I won't flood my flist... I'll post some sort of masterlist at the end.

Title: My Lips are Sealed...Or Not.
Day/Theme: 3. The itch, the urge, the leaking tongue
Series: Yu Yu Hakusho
Character/Pairing: Hatanaka Shuuichi, Kurama
Rating: PG
Words: 249
Notes: for [livejournal.com profile] 31days_exchange, 31_days masterlist.

When Hatanaka Shuuichi discovered his older brother's secret... )
Haha...ha. So I thought I would tackle the remaining themes with short drabbles, but there were some themes I really wanted to use for this fic. And then this happened. OTL (How am I going to finish like this? Only a few hours left...) This is not a short drabble. I wish I could have divided this one up into further parts, but it had to be one single part.

Title: He Never Knew part 5
Day/Theme: 8. Discombobulated people en masse
Series: Prince of Tennis
Character/Pairing: Echizen Ryoma, rival schools
Rating: PG
Words: 2,367
Notes: for [livejournal.com profile] 31days_exchange, 31_days masterlist. Er, some 2nd person POV sneaking into this? I have no idea anymore.

Previous Part

There wasn't a single middle school tennis player who hadn't heard that Echizen Ryoma had lost his memories and along with that, his ability to play tennis. )
An actual oneshot! \o/ (that completely came out of nowhere) Writing is so rushed, ahhhhh. I was kind of browsing my own Yuletide letter from last year. 8D

Title: Something Strange
Day/Theme: 1. A huge anthology of cutting edge horror
Series: Oresama Teacher
Character/Pairing: Hayasaka, Natsuo, Okegawa
Rating: PG
Words: 1705
Notes: for [livejournal.com profile] 31days_exchange, 31_days masterlist. I suppose this is a comedy. :D (Strange ending is strange) This is set between volume 9 and 10. The scanlations are almost there. A few more chapters to go. Banchou = leader of the school.

Hayasaka was quite oblivious most of the time (even he knew that), but he couldn't shake the feeling that there was something strange going on with Natsuo, the current banchou, and Okegawa, the former banchou. )
A little sick. ): *shivers*

Hm, I think I'll probably be able to finish 1-2 more themes, and that'll probably be it for me for [livejournal.com profile] 31days_exchange since they're all due by tomorrow. I feel so bad not finishing. =/ Especially when there was lots I wanted to write!

FFnet is still not working for me, though I see that other people have been updating their stories. I guess it's account-specific and not a site-wide thing.

Title: He Never Knew part 4
Day/Theme: 14. Good fast fiction fresh off the calendar
Series: Prince of Tennis
Character/Pairing: Echizen Ryoma, his teammates
Rating: PG
Words: 1301
Notes: for [livejournal.com profile] 31days_exchange, 31_days masterlist. I took a break from Ryoma's head. Should have done it sooner! (though I think my style is very confused because of this. What is this narrative...and these full names...)

Previous Part

Echizen Ryoma without his memories was a curious thing. )

Next Part
Oh man, March is ending so soon. I'll be writing furiously for the next three days, but I doubt I'll be able to finish all 31 pieces for [livejournal.com profile] 31days_exchange, but hey, I managed to write 20 something drabbles all in one day last time (though my mind seems to be thinking in longfics this time... what am I thinking??). March. I can't believe I started three WIPs. Here I was, trying to stop myself from doing that... but it actually feels good to start longer pieces once more instead of trying to fit my plunnies into a oneshot. But even with three parts added together, at the moment, this piece is actually still shorter than some of my oneshots. XD;

Title: He Never Knew part 3
Day/Theme: 30. Position of mysterious authority and of feared nebulosity
Series: Prince of Tennis
Character/Pairing: Echizen Ryoma, Yukimura Seiichi
Rating: PG
Words: 1,159
Notes: for [livejournal.com profile] 31days_exchange, 31_days masterlist. I shall now deem this part as the part that refused to get written (I spoke way too soon when I said the writing for this was easy)! I kept wanting to write from Yukimura's POV, but I always do that... switching POVs like crazy, so I tried to curb myself this time. Maybe I should have given in to Yukimura's demands.

Previous Part

He would have been prepared for anyone but the owner of that voice. )

Next Part
Kimi to Boku anime!
Kimi to Boku is getting an anime. ♥ I saw this before going to sleep and immediately posted about it to [livejournal.com profile] kimitoboku_fan. I should probably organize the tags of that community before next year. XD; And possibly continue or finish translating the drama CDs before they become moot.

Have been reading Enigma. I keep expecting things to get out of hand and get dark, but so far, this series makes me feel optimistic. :) unlike Doubt

My new favorite genderbenders~. Usotsuki Lily and Seiyuu Ka--! both make me grin so hard. Both are fairly humorous (Usotsuki Lily moreso than Seiyuu Ka--! in that the characters kind of speak to the audience and analyze themselves at times...). Seiyuu Ka--! is also a lot of fun with the situations Hime gets herself into (the latest with the drama CD business made me squeal). My shelves can no longer fit all these genderbenders. XD; I'm also reading CODA. :)

Online TCGs
Hm, I've kind of fallen out of the TCG playing phase in that I don't really go out to look for trades much at all (I just wait for people to come to me??). I don't seem to be capable of playing TCGs run by other people anymore since I can't keep up with them. OTL I just play TCGs owned by myself, haha. XD;

We're nearing our 2nd anniversary over at [livejournal.com profile] twistserve_tcg! This is very long running for a TCG. I always seem to outlast most TCGs (they usually end up closing on me after a few months or going on hiatus and never coming back), so I'm proud we've been around so long. XD; [livejournal.com profile] oriaon has been so helpful and giving me the extra push I need this week to get the community back into shape. XD Hopefully I can have the community much more organized by the end of the week, ready to welcome our 2nd anniversary!

[livejournal.com profile] colors_tcg is still going on strong~. I love trading with people here and I can be lazy and wait for people to trade with me, haha. I'm so giddy that we've been able to have a good turnout for all of our contests for designing original Colors characters. Look! Aren't they all so awesome? *___* When I first started Design Akai-san!, I totally thought the contests might die out someday, but it hasn't happened, thankfully. :D Now we're on our last character before our mascot round(s)!

[livejournal.com profile] 31days_exchange
Hm, so my goal was to write 31 pieces for this, at least one per day so I'd be able to finish by March 31, but March is turning out busy. Now it's already halfway through the month. I've only finished 5 pieces. D: 26 more to go... quite impossible. :'( I hoped I could at least finish He Never Knew by this week since I have enough WIPs just hanging around, but oh man, I haven't had time to write this week with all this other stuff I've been doing. ^^;;
Title: He Never Knew part 2
Day/Theme: 31. See the place you live through fresh eyes
Series: Prince of Tennis
Character/Pairing: Echizen Ryoma
Rating: PG
Words: 1,400
Notes: for [livejournal.com profile] 31days_exchange, 31_days masterlist. The style in this part is... completely different from the previous part, haha... good thing they're two separate parts. This fic was going to be one huge oneshot instead. That would have been weird with the sudden style change. It's still weird...

Previous Part

Losing the championship when they had been so close should have meant more to him, but it didn’t. )

Next Part
Title: He Never Knew part 1
Day/Theme: extra 1: The rush of a thousand heartbreak
Series: Prince of Tennis
Character/Pairing: Echizen Ryoma, eventual Yukimura/Ryoma (but more gen than anything...)
Rating: PG
Words: 1188
Notes: for [livejournal.com profile] 31days_exchange, 31_days masterlist. An AU spin on canon events. (I wanted to write an amnesic character for Tenipuri. There was a perfect candidate already, so this was what resulted.)

After losing his memories during Nationals, Ryoma never gained it back. )

Next Part
Dusting off a WIP I had since round 4 (or was it round 3...) of [livejournal.com profile] blind_go in hopes that having a deadline for [livejournal.com profile] 31days_exchange will actually get me to finish this! (It's been, what, 2, 3 years?) I don't think I've managed anything for [livejournal.com profile] blind_go since then after not being able to finish this. I'm also very out of touch with both HnG and YYH. It really shows. I hope I don't blunder too much with this. I very much want to finish this.

Title: Before I Leave Part 1
Day/Theme: 18. The first cool breeze in what seemed an eternity
Series: Hikaru no Go/Yu Yu Hakusho
Character/Pairing: Sai, Hikaru, Botan (in this part)
Rating: PG
Words: 2,230
