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 [ 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


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 [ 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 [ 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 [ 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 [ 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 [ 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~~!!

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...

Two Memes

Nearly had a panic attack when I realized I wasn't sure where my notebook was when I attempted to do this meme. XDD Crisis avoided, though ~ it was hiding under a volume of Tenipuri manga at the foot of my bed. ::cuddles notebook:: Anyways, from [ profile] lithele, who had it from [ profile] wondergecko~

Post a line from each of your WIPs.

And for space saving reasons... )

And in a completely separate meme:

Give me a lyric from any song and a character from any of my fandoms, and I will give you a drabble (100 words, more if I get involved) tying the two together.

Kill me.

Author under attack! GAH! )

EDIT: And in other news, I just noticed that [ profile] skyler_daemon deleted her LJ. Anyone know what happened / if she's all right?

So I was just finishing up this really great entry when I managed to close the window I was typing in and got to start all over again. Yay.

On less bitter fronts, I'm finally going to have time to write!!! ::so excited:: Fall break starts the day after tomorrow, and for the first time since May or so I have negligible work / tasks that need to be done. Saa and I already have plans to have a Starbucks day - take our laptops to the coffee shop and look uber cool by sipping something delicious while typing furiously. Though, in Saa's case, perhaps a notepad and a pencil scribbling furiously would be more apt, as she's on something of an art kick. Her Pirate!Roy, Movie!Al, Movie!Ed, and Leafmon picture is adorable... pity she hasn't got a scanner. :( Lules would be coming with us, but she has med schools to look at. ::sadness::

Nanowrimo 2005 arrived yesterday in the form of the account reactivation email. I'm re-registered and stoked to get going on it again. I just need to decide what I want to write about, because just now I really have no clue whatsoever. I've got a bunch of bunnies floating around my head, and while there's one I'd really like to do, I'm fairly certain I won't win this year, and I fear losing this story the way most of my previous Nanos have been lost after November. On a related note, I found out about something interesting while surfing around earlier, called "The Zokutou Clause". Basically, it's an insert to the rules of Nanowrimo that says if you've won previously, your goal should be finishing your novel, not proving that you can write yet another 50,000 word introduction. Lules is pushing me to take them up on it with Braid - which, with the exception of about 1k, I haven't touched since last November. (I know, I know, the more fool me.) It looks like that or the story about the plot bunnies is going to win, though I don't know which yet.

I joined [ profile] 30_tortures earlier today. My claim is for Himura Kenshin, mainly because I've got a monster of a Kenshin story that I want to write and I want to play with the character a bit before I do anything massive with him. The plot for that story is some seven pages long and is as yet unfinished. Well, it's finished in the sense that it's at a stopping point, but it's a stopping point such that I feel the ending would be insufficient to the story. We'll see how that goes. The 30 tortures should be fun, if nothing else. ^.^

EDIT: Just noticed Greed add this and figured I should throw it in too - my name on the Nano forums is RoseLanrete. ^.^
