I also thoroughly enjoyed this Akatsuki no Yona fic. It definitely gave a canon feel, with such a good mix of heartrending and lighthearted moments. I wish I could write such a well developed story like this!

I have one fic in the collection that I'll be posting here after author reveals on January 1st. o/


I've rewatched the Christmas special for Miraculous Ladybug too many times, heh, both in French and in English. (It's also pretty interesting to compare what gets changed in the translation) I giggled during this scene. It was a cute special, and the singing was super fun and over the top. I definitely wouldn't say no to more musical specials. Adrien's loneliness was really brought to the forefront here. Adrien!! ;__; While the special didn't tell much about his mom, it did reveal that she's only been missing for a year. I thought it would've been longer than that! I wish Tikki had gotten to sing too. Plagg got a cute little song, after all, that dramatic cat.

Soon, [community profile] yuletide fics are going to go live~. I have a gift and a treat! I shook my presents (I can never resist), so I think I have a pretty good clue what the fandoms will be. XD

Yu Wo is holding a Q&A for her characters on Facebook. Pretty amusing questions and answers. This one is my favorite:

Q: I'd like to ask Grisia—when you're missing out on desserts and have too much work to take care of, if you can only choose one person, Judgment or Ice, who would you choose?

Grisia: Adair.


Even when he's not one of the choices! XD
(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 )
I'm considering signing up for [livejournal.com profile] yuletide this year. I first started participating in 2006 as a pinch hitter (I believe this was the fic, and I've participated every year since then until 2013. I didn't participate in 2014 because of traveling to Japan during December, and then I skipped 2015 as well. Would be lovely to participate again (and exercise my oneshot writing muscles). :) I made a list of what I might request and offer, but I'll have to give it some more thought.

Recently, I've been playing Ace Attorney: Spirit of Justice. Bought it the day after it was released. It's awesome to see all the characters again, and I love that we're getting more about Apollo. I was hoping Dual Destinies would cover his background more, but it didn't, really. SoJ seems to remedy that. Whether I'll like his new background remains to be seen, but at least we're getting it!

I wouldn't mind if Phoenix wasn't in the game, haha. Whenever I'm faced with Phoenix's sections, I find myself wanting the game to head back to Apollo. :') So, I am pleasantly surprised that Apollo does indeed have quite the focus in this game.

thoughts on the first 4 cases )

The Yuletide taglist is open~. You can take a look at all the nominated fandoms that passed the first round of reviews for being rare and obscure. [livejournal.com profile] yuletide is an annual fic exchange for rare fandoms. Last year, there were 1895 participants. It's a big exchange, haha.

Timeline:
Nominations: September 22nd - 29th
Tag mods’ nominations review: September 30th - October 10th
Public nominations review: October 11th - 18th
Sign-ups: October 19th - 25th
Assignments out: approximately November 1st
Assignments due: December 20th
Reveal: December 25th

I nominated Legend of Sun Knight, Akatsuki no Yona, and Kamigami no Asobi~. :D

other series that ping my interest )

I would have no trouble requesting stuff. XD There are much fewer fandoms I would be able to write though, especially when I don't have as much time to review the canon.

I'm going to be traveling in December though, so it's likely I'll have to pass this year. D: Yuuuuuletide, ahhhhh. My yearly tradition!

Hm, but what if I skip out on Yuletide and instead... actually... attempt NaNoWriMo again in November... No, no, I shouldn't attempt Nano either. I don't have time for it! *flops* I might just aim for 50k again from all my stories combined instead of starting a new story. I shouldn't start any new stories. :'D;; (One day, Adair, one day. I'm so going to write canon from his POV)

Yuletide move

May. 17th, 2014 12:57 pm
lucathia: (fishbones: flower background 2)
[livejournal.com profile] yuletide stories have been moved to AO3 from the old Yuletide archive! Wow. I almost thought it wasn't happening. When I first got an AO3 account in 2009, I posted most of my fics there (except my first few fics from back in 2000~2004, hahaha, oh gosh, that was so long ago, as well as old incomplete WIPs that I doubted I would finish). I didn't post my Yuletide stories either, since I was told that the stories would be moved en masse from the old Yuletide archive. Well, after 4~5 years, it has finally happened. XD;; Now my account feels a bit more complete, hahahah. This puts me at 95 works on AO3.

My AO3 account is also starting to hold some fics that I haven't crossposted to ffnet because 1) they don't fit ffnet guidelines 2) there are spoilers that are harder to warn for on ffnet or 3) they're really short. I don't like posting super short fic on ffnet since I feel like it clutters my stories list, which is one long list. I feel that it's easier to sort fics on AO3, and I suppose the other reason is that I mostly use AO3 as an archive. So I really want it to be complete. (Also, fewer people are subscribed to me on AO3, so I don't feel like I'm spamming their inboxes by uploading a bunch of drabbles, ahahahaha...Many apologies to those who are subscribed to me. OTL)

Even though I didn't crosspost old WIPs to AO3, which meant AO3 mostly only housed my completed fics (...in the beginning), later on, I started posting my current WIPs... so now AO3 has a bunch of incomplete fics too. :'D WIPs will be the death of me. OTL

My word count for all of my fics combined on AO3 is 452,379. On ffnet, it's 559,163 (this one is likely inflated because it includes author's notes and fic headings).

...13 years of fanfic writing, Lucathia...13 years... and 550k is all you have to show for it? But more than that, the number of completed longfics is dishearteningly low. (...finish your stories, Lucathia, seriously). Maybe I should just limit myself to oneshots. (I love chaptered fics, but I'm so terrible at timely updates and plot). I'm pulled in too many directions nowadays. :'D *goes off to work on translations* (Oh, BTW, Legend of Sun Knight is seriously the most I've written for any fandom. Shaman King was the previous title holder. Prince of Tennis, on the other hand, is my perennial fandom. And then there are all these other fandoms in which I only write 1~4 fics of. I suppose Gyakuten Saiban would be higher on the list, except I've dropped the ball on several unfinished fics for that, so those fics will stay hidden in this LJ)

I think I'll make a list of my WIPs later... lists should help... I'll see which ones I can end... and what I need to do to get back at working on some of them. /super disorganized (I might also just type out what I intended for some stories that I probably won't be returning to)
Title: I'm Drunk and You're Cheerful (oneshot)

Yuletide

Happy holidays! ♥ I hope you are all having a great time. Hopefully relaxing and enjoyable. :)

[livejournal.com profile] yuletide fics are live! Here's the collection. I received an amaaaaaazing Chihayafuru fic focused on Taichi coming to terms with Arata and Chihaya wanting him to be part of their relationship. I had a silly grin on my face the entire time I was reading because, omg, Taaaichi. XD;;

What friends have I who know my heart (5098 words) by Anonymous
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Chihayafuru
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: Author Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Relationships: Ayase Chihaya/Mashima Taichi/Wataya Arata
Characters: Mashima Taichi, Wataya Arata, Ayase Chihaya
Additional Tags: Love, Love Confessions, Polyamory, Polyamory Negotiations, First Kiss, Introspection, Future Fic
Summary:

When Arata and Chihaya play karuta, it's like they're connected not just to the cards but to each other, and when you watch them you're connected too. At least that's how it feels to Taichi. So he reads for them every chance he gets, like right now, and every time he does he knows there's no way for him ever to quit.

"No, we—" Still standing, Arata cuts himself off with an inhale. Taichi looks up at him but he doesn't continue.

It's Chihaya who says, "We have something to talk to you about."



There are a total of 6!!! Chihayafuru fics. I haven't even looked at what else is in the archive yet. *___* (But now I kind of want to read Chihayafuru again...)

I don't have any fic to post today in celebration, though now that Legend of Sun Knight V6C4 has been released over at Prince Revolution, the English fandom now knows about Metal's secret! (As well as Sun's and Judgment's secrets, wow, this is certainly a chapter of secrets... But haha, Metal's definitely left the biggest impression on me) I guess I can crosspost A Taste of More over at ffnet now. XD; Even though it is definitely not a fic that's very suitable for the holidays, pffft.

Fic Exchanges

Oct. 19th, 2013 06:57 pm
lucathia: (fishbones: flower background 2)
Some exchanges I'm currently participating in. ;)

Tenipuri Secret Santa exchange on Tumblr! Works are to be posted after December 25th. I received a very fun assignment. I just have to brush up on canon a bit and read the profiles of the characters to make sure I have all the details right.

[livejournal.com profile] yuletide assignments are out! Fic is due December 22. I wonder who got matched with me... :3;; I got a pretty cool match. I only offered a handful of fandoms this time, but I was still surprised by what I got. I'm quite happy with it though! Time to review the canon~. I might also try to write one of the fandoms I wasn't matched on, but I'll have to see how I do with my first fic first.

And quite randomly, unrelated to all of the above... Silent Eagle / Awaitsun's character design from the Legend of Sun Knight manhua!!!! Do you feel he looks handsome enough? XDDD He is supposedly the handsomest character ever, one who is so handsome that guys would want to kill him to decrease their rival in love by one. (He reminds me of Ice... Just like Adair and Cloud both reminded me of Ice... Everyone reminds me of Ice... Must be how expressionless they are...) I did not picture him with white hair though. Not at all! I feel he'd look more charismatic with black hair. In fact, the Son of the God of War looks more charismatic with his manhua design! Oh well... I can't wait to see him in the manhua. He'll be showing up in volume 6.

I am so, so close to finishing Bittersweet Sweetness. I am going to finish this fic. 4 parts should do it. (Except, I've been hit with the urge to write a spin-off of it. A BL version. NOOOOoooooo....) Anyway, Part 33 should be done soon. I'm in the middle of editing it, and Part 34 is half written too. I've reread the entire fic again to make sure I'm tying up all of the loose ends (and of course, I get plunnied even more...). I made quite a lot of edits to my document, but I wonder if I should attempt to make all the edits to the three different places I've posted the fic... T__T;)
Here's my letter for [livejournal.com profile] yuletide, just barely making signups! Some of these are requests I've made before but never matched on (or my writer decided to write a different series, haha). I would love to see fic for any of these series! :D (If you're curious what Yuletide is, hop on over here!)

This is meant to be extra info in case you are the type of writer who likes to know more or to explore fandoms you weren't matched on. Otherwise, feel free to disregard. I've included all the necessary info in my signups!

It makes me happy when characters I like are well received, hahahaha. (Or at least thought of as very, very awesome)

Yu Wo's Oct 3, 2103 plurk:
Pitting the Omnipotent Against the Even More Omnipotent
If you were currently the boss of a thriving business, who would you hire as your secretary?
1. Adair (He can fight on the battlefield, enter the kitchen, and grace the great halls. Personally approved by the Sun Knight)
2. Kyle (Isn't it Bill? Computer in hand equates to the world in his grasp. Since the Sun Emperor hung up the call and did not accept the interview, his personal approval was not acquired)
3. Charles (He has housework completely covered. After leveling up, he can part-time as a non-professional doctor. Ri Xiang Ye strongly recommends him but also asks you not to steal him away)
4. Bai Saya (Only specializes in taking care of children. Truthfully he is only here to even out the numbers. Compared to the above three, his only advantage and possibly the only thing that matters is that he is young and handsome)

(Adair is from Legend of Sun Knight, Kyle and Charles are from Eclipse Hunter/No Hero, and Bai Saya is from GOD)

The votes were predominantly for #1, Adair (亞戴爾). XDDD;; I would choose him without a second of hesitation too, hahahaha. Because he truly has everything covered. Kyle would be a good choice too for business, but he probably can't serve as a bodyguard. =P Charles is not a good choice for business. Neither is Bai Saya, hahahah. They're both too nice. Though, I think it would be very hard to steal Adair away from Sun. Not that any of the others would be easy to steal away either...

Yuletide nominations have ended. I managed to make my nominations (I have basically been passing out right after work nearly every day, so merely making time for nominations has been hard! :3;;; ). It's a good thing that the deadline for Yuletide is during the holidays when I have time off, so I should be able to participate in Yuletide once more. ♥ I'm completely unsure what I'll be requesting and offering yet. I'll decide once the tags are finalized. I did see lots of people mention series I'm interested in, so even if I hadn't nominated anything, I would have been totally fine!

As for NaNoWriMo next month... It's probably a pass for me this year. I doubt I'll have the energy! Over all of 2013 so far, I've only written around 50k words with everything over the past 9 months added together. No way I'd be able to write 50k in one month on top of my new job. :'D;;;; I hope I'll be able to make some progress on my current WIPs instead. If I can write 25k for my WIPs, I will be very, very happy! (I will be even happier if I can finish at least one of my WIPs!! At the top of this list are Bittersweet Sweetness and A Vice-Captain's Tale.)

Then again, it would be very nice to be able to print one of my stories... XD;;; I looove CreateSpace's offer of printing books. It always tempts me. XD

Good luck to everyone doing Yuletide, NaNoWriMo, or any other writing endeavor! ♥
I've been reading as many Yuletide fics as possible, but I've only reached L in the alphabet... (I started alphabetically, though I did skip around for fandoms I looked forward to a lot). This is probably all I'll get around to reading before reveals. ): Time to return to writing!

I adored the following stories a ton. <3

a few fic recs )
It is 5 AM but I haven't gone to sleep yet because OMG Yuletide.

I received an amazing fic!

walking in babylon (8446 words) by Anonymous
Fandom: Fate/Zero, Fate/stay night & Related Fandoms
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Waver Velvet, Rider (Fate/Zero), Tohsaka Rin
Summary: In which Waver Velvet goes on vacation, pays his so-called debts, and forms an unlikely alliance.

ajkl;sdfjk;a I love longfic, and this one is a perfect length. Waver is so, so awesome in this, and I feel special that this fic is exactly the type of fic I love to read. Thank you author for catering to my likes so much. <333

That's pretty much all I've got around to reading so far! I hope to read lots of Yuletide fic after I sleep. <33 I am also super gleeful over the fact that my recipient is super sweet. I love writing for enthusiastic people! (And I'm so relieved that my recipient seemed to like the fic!) Also, Yuletide isn't complete without me trying to identify [personal profile] darkicedragon's fic, since I've managed to do so for the past two Yuletides, and for Parallels as well. XDDD I believe I've found it! That is, if there isn't more than one. XD

Merry Christmas and happy holidays, f-list! I hope you're having a great day! :D
Some translations of Yu Wo's plurks!

I actually disappeared off the face of LJ for three days on a family trip. Now I'm back! Though I'll be disappearing over the weekend again to visit relatives, so my presence on LJ will be scarce.

Bought Legend of Sun Knight volume 4 (manhua) before I left on my trip. It arrived today while I was away. Or well, yesterday now. Missed the package. =/ Hopefully I'll be home when it gets redelivered. Can't wait~. I read somewhere that the manhua will be 20+ volumes (which was what I got when I calculated myself. If each volume of the novels gets adapted into 3 volumes of manhua, then 8 novels would mean 24 volumes of manhua!! Supposedly, next year, manhua releases will be faster. I hope that comes true. XD

Also, congratulations to Yu Wo for being the top-selling author (with LSK selling the most books) at books.com.tw for 2012. For fiction. :D The rest of the list looks like a great way for me to check out new authors.

Writing-wise, I'm still polishing my fic for [livejournal.com profile] yuletide. It's already turned in (the deadline has already passed), but I'm still giving my fic a thorough makeover. Not going to stop until I'm completely satisfied! The first scene can stand-alone, but then my mind supplied all these follow-up scenes...kaldjf;as. All these ideas. *flails* I wish I hadn't been away for so long right before the deadline! No time for treats this year, sadly. ):

I have a mysterious gift waiting for me already~ (thank you, author!). I can't wait to find out what fandom I'll be getting, though I have checked the fandoms page, so I have a good idea what fandom it'll be. Still, last time I thought I was getting a certain fandom but still got it wrong in the end, haha.
Happy Halloween, f-list! <3 Today Lucathia is cat!Lucathia. :) Did any of you dress up? (I saw so many cute mini Iron Mans and Hulks today and a mini Thor as well as a mini Captain America, omg, sooo cute). I'm currently in the midst of passing out candy. Non-stop door answering! I'm nearly out of candy. I so miscalculated how many kids there would be! SF Giants parade replay is playing in the background while I pass out candy. :3 Maybe the hype of the Giants winning this year had something to do with how excited everyone currently is... I heard some Gangnam Style was going on during the parade. Hope I see it later. XD

Neko Kreuz finished her LSK Halloween pic! \o\ So adorable! Sun and Judgment with animal ears~.

I managed to edit my signup for [livejournal.com profile] yuletide this morning, and I think I'm mostly satisfied now. Even if I'm not satisfied, signups are closed now, haha. Can't wait to see who I get matched with. I'm super happy that two of the series I nominated that didn't have requests before other than my own for one of them (Sket Dance and Chihayafuru) also have other requests now. :DDD Chihayafuru even has 6 offers! Kind of makes me wish I had requested it after all...

NaNoWriMo starts tomorrow! Which is a few hours away for me! Anyone joining this year? My page is right here. I'd love to be writing buddies. :D I'm hoping to rewrite my 2010 NaNo project (original fiction), though I'll still be trying to update my in progress fanfics, so I am very unsure if I'll make any progress with the original story. For people new to NaNoWriMo, it stands for National Novel Writing Month, where people try to write 50,000 words in the month of November. I'll be aiming to write 50k of anything, original or fanfic! I'll be happy as long as I can hit that word count.

Which means, first thing I need to do is try to finish Dishonest Honesty. Rough drafts are due Nov 2 for [livejournal.com profile] journeystory... I've yet to finish writing the story, ahhhhh. I'm only 1.5k in, OTL. The goal is 10k, but the more important thing is that I haven't gotten past the intro yet, ahaha...

LJ has been timing out horribly for me over the past week. If you want to get in touch with me, email or my plurk is probably a better way to do it!

ETA: Yu Wo is gathering story ideas here. :) She'll pick a few ideas and have readers vote for the top three. She'll be writing them as a Christmas/End-of-the-year present. Translation of the post over at Prince Revolution! under staff blog.
(this is my letter for [livejournal.com profile] yuletide, a fic exchange for obscure fandoms)

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. In case you feel adventurous, I've provided short blurbs about each of the series as well.

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. I've requested my favorite character from each fandom, so as long as the fic is about that character, I'll be happy!

My general likes )

request 1: SKET Dance )

request 2: Havemercy Series - Jaida Jones & Danielle Bennett )

request 3: Fate/Zero )

request 4: Basara (Anime & Manga) )
Alright.

Update for [livejournal.com profile] colors_tcg done. Check.
September update posted for Prince Revolution. Check.
Set up Chocobanana Scanlations. Check. (Help, we need more cleaners! I just want to see Kimi to Boku to the end. ♥)

Finally, free time to write some fic... Sometimes I wish I only wrote fic! :3;; Not enough time to do everything! Also, why aren't people responding... /worries at progress. I'm not good at managing so how did I end up managing all these different places... ORZ. Too many fandom responsibilities. XD I feel like I've probably forgotten to do some things too. If I don't answer or do something right away, I tend to forget... but what have I forgotten...


I can't believe [livejournal.com profile] yuletide has started! There's a fandom brainstorming post and a nominations planning post up. Nominations start September 24! I'm not sure what I'll be nominating yet (SKET Dance for sure, but I don't know about my two other fandoms. Perhaps a book fandom? Though recently I've only been reading Taiwanese light novels XD. Hm, I wonder how popular Sword Art Online or Moonlight Sculptor are, as the only non Taiwanese light novels I've been reading, haha. Or perhaps a TW drama...but I doubt anyone has seen the one I'm currently watching, since it hasn't been subbed). I've been browsing the fandom brainstorming post, afraid I wouldn't be able to find a fourth fandom for my requests, or that I wouldn't be able to offer enough fandoms to write, but I think I'll be fine! There have been a few suggestions I wouldn't mind writing or requesting. Magi for one. :D I'll possibly be requesting Magi as my fourth if that nomination does happen! Also considering Fate/Zero if Waver and Rider are the ones that end up being nominated like the person said since they're my favorites too. \o\

short squealing over Noblesse 249 )

I've been thinking I need to write an appreciation post for Arctic Fox. :D Though it would contain spoilers for the remaining 1/2 Prince chapters. Hm. :3
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 )

Remembering was inconvenient, but M-21 welcomed it. Maybe, just maybe, he would finally remember his name and the names of his comrades.
Notes: Written for [personal profile] darkicedragon for [livejournal.com profile] yuletide 2011 as a treat. I was pretty gleeful about writing this because I liked the idea a lot, heh, except my execution isn't so great (I also almost didn't make it in time, as I started this around the time Madness opened). More about that later in my Yuletide summary post! Thanks Dark Ice Dragon, for writing me so many giftfics again this year! Originally posted here.

Title: Sleeping Beauty, or the Unconscious Man on the Bed
Fandom: Hunter x Hunter
Words: 2,579
Summary: This had become a daily routine for the silver-haired boy, as essential as eating and sleeping. The man on the bed never responded, but the silver-haired boy had grown used to having a silent and unresponsive audience.
Notes: Written for [livejournal.com profile] justwolf for [livejournal.com profile] yuletide 2011. Set after the Chimera Ant Arc. Originally posted here. Fic commentary will be posted in a separate Yuletide summary post! (But to make things short, I wasn't entirely pleased with my first attempt at giftfic for [livejournal.com profile] justwolf, so I thought I'd also write out my second idea! And maybe even my third idea! To make up for quality with quantity, haha... but why I thought a fic featuring an original character would be an awesome idea is beyond me...)
