Hi all~!

So, I haven't actually posted in a little bit, and now seemed like a good time to do so. ^_^;;; Lots of things have happened since the last time I posted (LSATs and fics and all sorts of things). Starting with [ profile] trail_hunter! [ profile] trail_hunter was a lot of fun! Produced both quantity and quality Hunter x Hunter fic, which really was something I'd almost given up on seeing all at one time. Three cheers to my co-mods, [ profile] readerofasaph and [ profile] giving_ground, for being awesome~! I'm going to be sending out the prizes tomorrow. ^_^ I wrote this rather strange fic about Hisoka. I'm not really sure where it came from, I was just kind of in a mood from being stuck in freaking Chicago, and then Kurapika wouldn't talk to me, and Gon was having issues, and suddenly there was creepy Hisoka fic. O_o Oh well. I like it, after a fashion. Not the worst thing I've ever written, anyways.

Other recent fic! For [ profile] fifthmus, I wrote Affecting Eternity: Ponnuki for [ profile] thephoenixboy. It's about Ogata becoming Touya Kouyo's student. And it's kind of a fusion with Prince of Tennis, except not really, because none of the Prince of Tennis characters make an appearance. I feel a bit bad about it - I wanted Ogata to have something that he was passionate about prior to go, on the theory that he was super passionate about go because go was his second chance and he didn't expect a third. So then I was thinking about it, and I... was being a little lazy, and didn't want to come up with a team of my own, so I tried to figure out who to borrow. I know soccer and tennis, and it occurred to me that either Whistle! or Tenipuri would work, doubly so because I know Phoenix knows both. ^_^;;; And then it was mostly chance. I was in a tennis mood. XDD It got away from me a bit, so I may pick it back up again because it feels like it might need a part two to be complete. I dunno~. Figure it out soon enough.

I also received this really fabulous fic about Akira doing archery from [ profile] aithine! Definitely made my Fifthmus~~! ♥

And [ profile] blind_go fic~. I need to remember to post about it in something resembling a decent amount of time after this round ends. Anyone who can guess me gets a drabble (strict 100 word limit so no complicated requests please!) from any fandom of mine that they'd like. Comments on this post screened to allow guessing. ^_^

At the moment, I'm working on [ profile] khr_undercover fic~. I really like my idea for it. ♥ Also toying with a potentially rather long Skip Beat! fic. I hesitate to do long!fic, but... it's a good idea, and I kind of want to write it. But then I had this other idea, too, for an quasi-original screenplay, and I sort of want to work on that, too. And really, I need to finish my law school apps before anything else, but I'm in a writing sort of mood (maybe because I'm not stressing over huge scary exams any more?) so I dunno. *ponders*

Anyways, new years resolution to write more! (Again... XD) Cheers~.

Sooo... these are all things I meant to post yesterday / day before, but between work and a family pumpkin picking potluck upstate, I just hadn't managed yet.


Trail Hunter!
[ profile] trail_hunter

It's a new comm for Hunter x Hunter fans a la Hikago's [ profile] blind_go and Tenipuri's [ profile] subrosa_tennis. On October 10th began sign-ups for its first round. Fics only have to be 500 words, and it should be a lot of fun, so if you're into HxH please consider joining us!!! ♥

And Second!

[ profile] blind_go is over! ;_; Which means that I now have to own up to having written Akira no Soccer. I did a concrit of it myself a week after the fact, and it's atrocious, so let's not get into it. XDD

Congrats to [ profile] readerofasaph for guessing right~! This means I now owe you Ryoma fic (oh dear), so please let me know if there's anything more specific you'd like in it.

Finall, Third!

Speaking of [ profile] blind_go and concrit (hazardous, or so it seems ^^;; ) I did attempt a concrit of every fic written this round, all of which (including the one for my own *lol*) can be found under the following cut. Because clearly, everyone wants my opinion. (AS IF!) If I haven't said anything positive about a story it's not that I didn't like it, it's just that I think positive remarks miss the crit aspect of concrit. I actually made a conscious decision to pull most of my more positive "I like X" remarks, so be warned that this is a try at crit, not commentary. (It is my intention to go around leaving the positive comments on the fics I had them for. XD We'll see if I manage it. XD) These comments are mainly things that could be fixed or changed, with suggestions for those changes when they weren't completely clear, but I am only human, and I don't doubt that I edge a little too close to commentary in some places. Sorry about that. Please let me know if you'd like to discuss, etc.

Wow. It's... very pleasant, to think that I made it seven weeks, producing a fic for five of every seven days. This last week was Author's Choice. I decided that meant that I could reuse whatever fandom I liked, so I've finished the challenge with 10K+ words in 27 or so fandoms. O_o That's kinda cool. I think I'm going to miss this challenge. Not enough to sign up for it again, mind you, but miss it all the same.

Anyway! I have here Princess Tutu, Final Fantasy XII, Hunter x Hunter, Kingdom Hearts II, and Mai-HiME ficlets. Tutu has angsty undertones but is happy. FFXII is comedy. HxH is fluffy. KHII and Mai-HiME are both AU - - KHII is AU with an up-spin, Mai-HiME is AU with a down-spin. At least, that's how their moods classify themselves in my heads, though both are a little angsty. The KHII one is actually an idea I've been meaning to work on for just this side of forever, and have never gotten around to. There may be more of it later, since I like the verse. The HxH one isn't as fully-fleshed as I wanted it to be - a friend had asked me to go see a staging of a play I editted for her, so I didn't have as much time to devote to it as I should have in the first place... and then I forgot until 20 of midnight that I was dog-sitting for my aunt, so I didn't have time to edit much on the back end either. It's actually kinda just this side of flat-out bad. XD The Tutu one, on the other hand, may be my favourite. The FFXII one is good for a laugh, though, and the Mai-HiME one plays out what-if that I'm fond of. Possible elaboration on it, later, but I don't think so. ^.^;;;

And now, fic!

Is it possible to apologize for something in advance? 'Cause that's probably what this is - an apology for how absolutely awful the fic I've written for Ironman7 this week. ^^;;; It was AU week, and... well, it didn't start terrible, but it wound up that way. ^^;;; The first one, the Ouran one, was really good, but the following three failed hard core and the last one probably won't be much better. They'll all be up tomorrow, after I write the last one.

Anyway, skipping ahead to the apology. I like the apology. I've beta'd it myself, but if anyone has suggestions that'd be great. I recently watched Hunter x Hunter (finally XD), and been jonesing for fic... so I wrote some. It's... angsty, but kinda cool. I dunno. I'm babbling, possibly because I'm proud - this is one of very few long one-shots I've ever written, which makes it special in my head if not in reality. So... HxH fic!

Also, if anyone can point me to a HxH icon, that'd be great, too. ^.^;;;
