Ugh... where did February go, and why didn't the cold weather start leaving with it??

Connection has been extra challenging lately! I haven't been writing much here, but it's not that I'm terribly busy- I just haven't had much to say. Life is rather horribly uninteresting outside of zouk at the moment and my fannish brain keeps running off to parts unknown unless reeled in by other people, so I've been sticking to chat, email, and Skype this past month. My one achievement was KagaNigou crackfic in which Kuroko is a Grey Warden, and that only happened because BPS chat is really good at enabling. :P (There will be more of it! I just need to think through some more KnB/Dragon Age crossover details before I continue.)

In other news: anybody have yarn store recommendations in the NYC area? Or favorite yarns? Seeing as this is the winter of my losing hats (including the one I crocheted over Christmas, sigh), I might as well go and make another one. Or two. Possibly three, if winter doesn't GO AWAY already.

It's treat meme time!

How to play:
    1. Leave a comment with up to 3 prompts. Specify any fandoms and/or characters you wish.
    2. Browse other prompts and leave treats at will!
    3. Anon comments are on, so prompt (or treat!) anonymously if you choose. :)

Notes:
  • I am not very Halloween-spirited, so this is not a trick-or-treat meme. However, if you want something Halloween-appropriate, feel free to say so!
  • You are NOT required to leave treats if you leave prompts, although the gesture would be appreciated. :)
  • If you do choose to leave a treat, you can do so in any way you wish- drabbles/ficbits, icons, artwork, etc. are all welcome.
  • I can't guarantee that I will be able to fill everyone's prompts, but I will do my best to make sure you get something if you comment!

Let's play! ♥

♠ Kuroko 2x01: flail ) I am now reminded that I meant to make some more Kuroko icons! I never even got through S1 properly, s-sigh. /o\

♠ Now that Touch Pass has been revealed, I can thank Jiri for writing me Moral of the Story! Also, I can now say that I wrote contrapunctus (finally, I wrote a thing! Finally, I wrote a KnB thing!) and properly apologize for the youtube vortex of doom, ahaha. ^^; More linkspam after I've finally finished reading Touch Pass entries!

♠ It feels so good to be writing again. I am already plotting my next project, but throw me prompts anyway? Any fandom, though I do want to experiment more with KnB. :3
glass_icarus: (red cliff: zhuge/zhou yu pigeons)
I am in a writing kind of mood today, but am sadly lacking in inspiration! There's the obvious Touch Pass assignment, but that requires more consideration and I still need to get my hand in in terms of writing fic again. SO! Toss me prompts please? Any fandom [incomplete list] will do, not just Kuroko. As usual I can't promise I'll fill everything, but I'll try to finish as many as I can.

eta;

+ The LNYE 2012 Masterlist is up! Which means I can now admit that I wrote crossing over, heh. Thanks to [personal profile] terajk for the OTGaang ficlet & [personal profile] beccastareyes for the Appa hat! ♥

+ Via... someone on twitter I think, N.K. Jemisin: Dreaming Awake.

+ Water marble nail art tutorial, which I stumbled upon via a friend. This... never would've occurred to me, but I foresee future procrastination experiments. >.>

1. So I spent the entirety of Thanksgiving weekend either fooding or IN FOOD COMA, & am still not out of the latter. @____@

2. Now that Kaleidoscope reveals are out, I can say that I wrote ties that bind! (Natsume Yuujinchou, Hinoe/Reiko, gen.) If this was non-obvious it was only because of all the BRAND-NEW FANDOM FLAILING at [personal profile] littlebutfierce & [personal profile] sarashina! *showers hearts upon* Also, epic flaily hearts to [personal profile] dhobikikutti, [personal profile] littlebutfierce, and [personal profile] redsnake05 for my gifts, which I am still gleefacing about!

Finally, you guys should all run to the masterlist of Kaleidoscope works and check out all the shiny, shiny things people made (and the shiny fandoms)! And/or make more shiny things, if you are so inclined, now that the Kaleidoscope Treats collection is reopened for submissions!

And now there is homework I should probably try to accomplish, but all I would like to do is sleep.
glass_icarus: (french quarter)
Happy Mother's Day, awesome moms in my circle! &hearts

Remix reveals are up! I wrote no returns or exchanges (the equilibration remix), which was probably PAINFULLY OBVIOUS to everybody who read it. (Also it is true I haven't exactly inhaled everything from the archive yet, but you may have noticed my crafty radio silence regarding A:TLA remix stories, so EVEN MORE PAINFULLY OBVIOUS, no? xD)

... and now I shall go back to rereading Stealing Harry & Laocoon's Children, because HELLO NOSTALGIA.

This weekend ended up as an unintended A:TLA marathon, because my dad was curious and started watching, and I am apparently as incapable of watching just one/a reasonable number of eps as he is! (Seriously, we're talking Friday night straight through Saturday here- the self-control thing, um, runs in the family? /o\)

THEREFORE. I declare trick-or-treat promptfest! Have at it, guys, I am SO ready for more. :D

Happy 中秋節/추석/Trung Thu/Lantern Festival/Mid-autumn Festival! :D &hearts I am opening drabble requests (again! despite my to-write list!) in celebration, so in the event that anybody wants Saving Face, or Avatar, or more Cho Chang, etc., you've got about 12 hours to spam me with prompts.

Not finished with all the prompts yet, but I'm putting these up first as my brain has been decidedly derailed by the need to scream inside myself for a while. ([personal profile] crooked & [livejournal.com profile] zarathuse, I will get back to writing shortly! &hearts)

The 5th Asian Women Blog Carnival is up! [livejournal.com profile] stephiepenguin did a great job compiling these, and I plan to devour everything today.

Still so groggy, omg. I have been failing to kickstart my brain into writing (well, what I'm supposed to be writing, at least) for the past four days, but thanks to the power of the collective awesome over at [personal profile] dhobikikutti's, I did come up with this:

Meng Meng is nearly grown now, and Xiao Qiao and Zhou Yu can both be found at the stables more often than not, lingering longer and longer as the summer wears on. )

Okay, retreating to my word docs! Hopefully I can finish at least one of them. :S

Not for the first time, Morgana contemplated locking the two of them in the dungeons together until they'd managed to talk things out. )

Happy new year, loves! :)

We spent the night at home, my sister and I, with cheap lobster and unopened wine, nearly sleeping through the last few seconds of 2009. (Our parents rang in the new year at Taipei 101, in the company of old and rarely-seen friends- a getaway that they fully deserve, although my dad remains chained to his work and his laptop.) I passed the time watching CSI and NCIS and (ha) The Replacements rather than any of the new year's countdowns, and was quite content with that.

2009: me and you )

Anyway! Moving right along, here's a fandom/writing retrospective:

Fic )

On race )

Phew. Apparently I wrote a lot more than I thought I did. *g* Icons and more Yuletide recs to come later!

ETA: Yuletide reveals! This year my assigned story was five exercises in aggravation {Junjou Romantica), and I also wrote eating together (Saving Face) for Yuletide Madness. I find it inordinately amusing/amazing that all of the Saving Face fic this year was written either for or by me. &hearts &hearts xD
