So... I might have mentioned this before, but one of my pet peeves in the Tenipuri fandom is US Open fic that's really inaccurate. Since we're getting close to the end of our canon-future themed round of [livejournal.com profile] subrosa_tennis (and since I'm procrasting on my fic for that and for BG XD), it seemed like a good time to put this together. Doubly so, because I got a very late birthday present of tickets to the women's semis, so I even got to take a bunch of pictures to go with. (This guide is unapologetically very picture heavy.) Anyways, yay~

A Writer's Guide to the US Open

Flag~Open

Guide continues under cut. )
lanerose: (DW ~ Catflap huh?)
So, continuing a trend, I've written, oh, nothing this week. Fail. I'm going to try again tonight and see if I get anywhere. I'm not really sure what's wrong that I'm getting nowhere, but... yeah, nowhere. On anything.

Also? Really disappointed in this season of Project Runway. The designers are a bunch of whiny little wannabes. None of them, in my opinion, have the drive and the passion that makes a top designer. Where's my Austin, who only wanted to make beautiful things and always, always did? Where's my Jeffrey, dedicated to bringing that hard rock edge with just a hint of elegance that makes things pop? Where's my Christian, ready to take the world by storm and making it work? It's all complain complain complain, wah I don't want to go home CRY MOAR. They're not designing to win, they're designing not to go home, and that's just wrong. ;_; Can we have Season 6 yet?

On the plus side, read and loved this Donna story about how awesome she is post Journey's End because she's just that awesome. That, and the way the Doctor is just kind of laced through it is fabulous. One of my favourite Tez/Ryo stories was also updated this weekend for the first time in like, ever, and that was exciting. It even makes me want to work on [livejournal.com profile] subrosa_tennis. Yay! ^_^

So... foods, and then writing. Yay, plan! ^___^
lanerose: (Tutu ~ One of Those Days)
So... not working on fic because I'm lazy like that. XDD For anyone who hasn't seen it, my [livejournal.com profile] fifthmus fic went up last week. It was supposed to be about Akiko meeting Mitsuko, but it wound up being more Akiko gen. You can read it here. ^_^

In related news, saw that sign ups just started for the next round of [livejournal.com profile] blind_go. I... am torn. On the one hand, Blind Go! I had loads of fun last round. And wonderful new mods and fun themes~! Also, I like having deadlines 'cause they mean that I actually write things. On the other hand, I'm already committed to [livejournal.com profile] subrosa_tennis and that last author standing thing for Doctor Who, both of which (assuming I'm still in the latter, which is probably a fault assumption *lol*) should be wrapping up around then. So... thinking about it. Might sign up and then just see how it goes. ::shrug::

Speaking of [livejournal.com profile] subrosa_tennis, I've been toying for a bit with making up a writer's guide to the US Open. So often, I've seen it written wrongly in Prince of Tennis fanfic, and as a proud New Yorker it kind of bothers me when people set it in California, or in Manhatten, or whatever. *Especially* because the actual series got the details *so* correct, right down to the airplanes flying from La Guardia in the background. Also, I'm dying to see Prince of Tennis fic where everyone goes to watch a baseball game because Arthur Ashe (where the finals of the Open are played) is right across the street from Shea Stadium. (Mind you, I'm never going to write it and I know it. But I'd love to see it.) I took a bunch of pictures of how to get to and from the stadium when I went to a Mets game earlier this week, and it occurred to me that this is probably the reason why Ryoma got lost coming out of the Tokyo subway: )

I'm trying to get tickets to go see at least one day of the Open, in which case I'll definitely do the guide with proper pictures and stuff. Maybe not if I don't, though, 'cause, y'know - directions to stadium only guide is kind of lame.

Anyway, might try and work on fic now. Or maybe to update my lists of recs with all of the stuff I've got bookmarked. *lol* But probably writing. Wish me luck~~!!

Because having that many good genfics for Prince of Tennis all in one place is probably illegal.

But in a happy sort of way. ^___^

Seriously though, everyone's works for this were awesome! My own fic was Goofy Foot for [livejournal.com profile] kirayukari, in which Echizen runs into Tezuka at the beach. I rather liked it. I *really* liked this picture of Sanada and Kirihara that [livejournal.com profile] sarahofcroydon drew for me. ^___^

And I am absolutely in love with the following fics.

[livejournal.com profile] vanillafire's World of Brothercraft - In which Fuji Shuusuke, Fuji Yuuta, and Mizuki all play World of Warcraft together. Because Shuusuke letting Mizuki die as a twisted sort of revenge is one of the greatest plot set-ups I've ever seen.

[livejournal.com profile] jain's Playing the Game - Because the world needs more well-written Hikago/Prince of Tennis crossovers. And in large part because of a very very brief Atobe cameo at the end that killed me.

[livejournal.com profile] takewing's One Hit KO - Because Sanada + Kirihara + Video Games is about eight bajillion different kinds of love.

And my favourite:

[livejournal.com profile] tokyostory's Stop Me If You've Heard This One Bef- oh. - Because I can't decide what I love the most about this piece. Because it convinced me to like Shishido, and because it made me want to hug Atobe and Oshitari. And because it had Voldemort, which just made it full of WIN.

I really almost thought that Prince of Tennis couldn't get any stranger. However... the preview for episode 11 of the OVA? They're apparently denying anime canon to use manga canon and tell that story about Tezuka in Kyuushu. ... what the heck? O_o I'm kinda curious, in an oh-my-god-that's-going-to-be-a-trainwreck sort of way. ^^;;;;

In other news, I'm three pages short of done on one of my papers and have run out of material. I'm so fucked. *_*

Also, I need to stop using "artes" instead of "arts." Clearly, too much Abyss for me.

I'm meant to be studying for finals, which clearly means I'm doing anything but. XD Way to go, me. XD Not sure I'm in love with how this ended, but I doubt I'll make it better later and if I beat my head against a wall for it any more I won't have the energy to beat my head against a wall for my final essays.

Title: Looking Beyond (1/8)
Fandom: Prince of Tennis
For: [livejournal.com profile] 15_rackets
Themes: Escape, Plea for Help
Characters: Atobe, Tezuka
Rating: G
Warnings / Summary: None, this is fluffy. Atobe and Tezuka's first match.

Atobe was nine the first time he met Tezuka, and bored out of his mind. )

::SQUEEEEE::

...

Oh wow, that last episode was just so much love... seriously, I'm not finding words for how perfect it was. ^.^;;;;;;;;

...

Also, it's really really wrong that I can't hear the little speech about how the Ouran Host Club is unique without laughing because I think of that Ouran/Tenipuri crossover where they talk about how Hyoutei has one too, only they call it the men's tennis club. Yeah. That was great. ^.^;;;;

...

... ::cuddles all of the Ouran characters::

And in completely random other parts of life, I have KH fic that needs a beta run but that will be up once it's cleaned up. ^____^ Yay, fic. I swear I'm not dead in terms of fic ~ just having some huge issues with a couple of scenes in different fics. Not quite writer's block, but... interesting. XDD Also, Nanowrimo anyone? I'm debating...

Title: Rondo
Fandom: Prince of Tennis
Characters: Atobe and Sakaki
Rating: G
Summary: The origin of Atobe's signature move.
Notes: My first fic in this fandom, hope it's okay! ConCrit greatly appreciated.

Silence broken only by the steady flow of notes greeted Sakaki's words. )

So, the more that I watch Prince of Tennis, the more I want to find my old racket and hit a few balls. Also, the more it reminds me of that saying about how it takes a village to raise a child.

Spoilers through 128 or so under the cut )

And, okay, so I *just* titled this entry, and now I want to make the title into a really crappy but probably pretty funny fic. Stop me, someone, please!

OMG!

Edit: Also, the best antidote for bad yaoi fanfic ever invented? Episode 71 of Tenipuri. Must remember!!!
