I was genuinely surprised when I went to go make this list to find that I'd written very little. I didn't bother to sort them by size, so they're collected by fandom:

Stolen from Jes on Plurk, but Plurk is my nemesis, so: Give me two characters (from any fandom, or from RP), and I will answer these questions about them:

  1. who holds the umbrella when it rains

  2. who is the grumpiest in the morning

  3. who worries more when the other is sick/hurt

  4. who plays pranks on the other

  5. who is always the first to suggest cuddling on the sofa

  6. who insists on creating nicknames for the other

  7. who drools on the other when they’re asleep

  8. who says ‘I love you’ first

Also, I am actively contemplating somewhere to play Roxas again, but I can't find a game that catches my eye... Stupid Jodie and her stupid enabling and her stupid awesome Kairi.

Okay, now to go to bed so I can wake up well before the crack of dawn to drive to work early so that I can be forced to leave early and then sleep through the office party. But I'll be dreaming of watching the last Colbert Report... /weeps

I don't feel like writing, playing games, or even really roleplaying. What I feel like doing is making a thousand icons. I must have 5000 textures by now and I want to play with them. I've spent the last few nights making Garnet and Fran icons because why not.

I went around looking for icon challenges/prompts/claims communities that were active and I didn't see any on DW. I contemplated doing some general prompts or bingo cards that don't have a fic-only restriction, but I'm not sure I can visually express more complex prompts: something like "melancholy" is fine (per my [community profile] genprompt_bingo card) but something like "black is the new black" (per [community profile] dailyprompt) I have trouble imagining how to express.

A lot of people on my flist are icon-savvy so you might not need icon-making, but I'm still eager to try new things, and choosing which image to icon next is almost the hardest part. So I will make you an icon if you provide me with an image. It'll be a holiday gift to both of us!

  1. Up to 3 images to start with, and I will almost certainly provide you with several variations for any given image.

  2. Images can be anything, photos, fanart, screencaps, whatever. If it's from a fandom source I don't need to know the fandom, but please tell me what it is / who the character is for my reference!

  3. Since the point is playing around I don't need to know the requester either, so stalkers and friends of friends are fine.

  4. Images that require coloring (black and white, lineart, manga) are okay, but I don't guarantee awesome.

  5. Additional information about what you want from the icon is okay. Icons with text and animated icons I don't promise quality results for.

  6. Bonus points if one of your images is for a Tales of, Kingdom Hearts, or Code Geass character, since I want to try those in particular.

Here are some examples!

Yeah, I didn't finish this on time, you wanna fight about it.

I'm going to make another post later today once all my things are done, about resolutions. But here's a little looking back at my writing.

Even though I'm the world's most predictable writer, I'm actually pretty pleased with myself, looking at this. )
sincere: DGM: Lenalee's back to the viewer (sciencebros ;;)
I was awesomely productive this weekend. Got my car registered in PA, got my epic new license plate with the best default license plate number ever, mailed out all my packages, bought most of my gifts, wrote like 3000 words, did all my Sif tags...! I'm on the ball.

Sadly, I have to go in to work early on Monday and I'm terrified I'm going to be blamed for this latest mishap and I wish I could just live under a rock for the rest of my life.

So it's time for a meme! Since I never do these anymore.
Pick a character I've written and I will explain the top five [or so] ideas/concepts/etc I keep in mind while writing that character that I believe are essential to accurately depicting them.
sincere: DGM: Lenalee's back to the viewer (purity of heart ;;)
gdit fine I'll have a Plurk. Stupid universe. Friend if you got 'em.

I've been doing an awesome amount of writing. \o\ Yay for [community profile] areyougame and 750words! I got two Tales of the Abyss ficthings and one Kingdom Hearts ficthings done at [community profile] insincere. Tomorrow I have an actual Tales of Vesperia piece due. My first TOV fic. *inexplicably weirded out*

Have a meme. This is a "First game fandom of the year/Last game fandom of the year" meme. But I'm bored, and mostly interested in this part: Tales of Vesperia, last fandom of the year, go!

GAME ★ Tales of Vesperia
These are a few of my favorite... )
sincere: DGM: Lenalee's back to the viewer (simple purity ;;)
After having read the summary of the first part of the Tales of Vesperia novel with Raven's backstory, I... think I ship Raven/Sodia. In the game and in the novel Raven has compared her to Flynn (he said that Yuri and Flynn remind him of himself and Casey; since Raven and Yuri have a lot in common, I've always assumed that Flynn must remind him of her). This is still a decent comparison after reading the novel; they certainly have a lot of attitudes and conflicts in common.

But Casey seems very Sodialike, too. I thought so the moment she snapped at Duke for suggesting they flee the battlefield, because that's not what Commandant Alexei said; when they said things like she never made sarcastic commentary; when they commented on her strict unsmiling hostility towards young!Raven. Now I kind of want to fic Raven/Sodia.

Also, Casey was a captain? Awesome. Go go female captain.

Also, loved the Alexei we saw in this novel, it explains so much about why Flynn idolized him.

Doing a fun fandom meme because I've wanted to do it and [personal profile] cypher posted a version I haven't done yet. With some tweaking because I'm fussy:

Ask me about any character I know, and I will pick [at least] one most of the following and tell you:

(a) Three facts about them from my personal fanon.
(b) Two reasons they're amazing.
(c) Five things that I'd like to see happen to them.
(d) Three people that I might ship that character with and why.

Ask if you're in doubt about a fandom!
sincere: DGM: Lenalee's back to the viewer ([kh-roxas] cold light)
Finally did some writing, even if it wasn't relevant writing (e.g. Another Side chapter). But right now in this sort of slump, any progress is good progress. I'm at around episode 9 of Code Geass right now. Lelouch is so gay It's fun, although I can't take it terribly seriously. First of all, half of it is ridiculous. And second of all, 90% of the official art turns me off. (Either it's T&A exploitation, gheiboy exploitation, or gheigirl T&A exploitation.)

Name a character from any of my fandoms, and I'll tell you every pairing I've ever written them in, read them in, or even just thought about.

Where's my DGM? I'm freaking out over here.

I'm so productive I should just keel over. I'm making tremendous progress on my original project The Last Dreamer and I'm working on Namine's Notes for Another Side until the Twilight Town sequence is done. I'm starting Oswald's story in Odin Sphere (this game gets much easier once you use an infinite health cheat) and I'm approaching my fourth full moon in Persona 3 and my warlock is approaching level 40 in WoW, and will soon beat out my sad druid for highest-level Hordeling.

I'm also now working on a sekrit project for [ profile] okroginator, because she said nice things about me and I missed her birthday earlier this month. I also enabled my birthday to display in my profile page because I don't know why it wasn't. You all owe me nice things okay not.

...I guess I should also apply to my three jobs for the week.


Two, two, TWO MEMES IN ONE! Name a series I'm familiar with and I will... )
sincere: DGM: Lenalee's back to the viewer ([kh-roxas] staaaare)
Comment and I'll list 7 interests from your profile in a reply. Then you do an entry/comment about what they mean and why you are interested in them. [ profile] sorceressakemi picked...

1. fucking cows in retrospect
Line from a retarded flash video, featuring an EXTREEEEEME Bugs Bunny parody. It's a lot of cursing and EXTREEEEEMEness, but the last line is "You fuck cows in retrospect!" which is -- such a bizarre and hilarious thing to say, my roommates and I immediately put it into our interests list.

2. sinister ducks
This is another line from something, this time a song called "March of the Sinister Ducks". This song is hilarious and really spreads awareness of the sinister nature of ducks. They'll smirk at your hairstyle, wearing their plaid jackets, and sleep with your wife! Those web-footed fascists even force old ladies to throw them bread, I heard.

3. subaseka
Subaseka is the Japanese shorthand for Subarashiki Kono Sekai/The World Ends With You, everyone's favorite game featuring clones of Kingdom Hearts characters! I like this game because it's very unique in tone and gameplay, and it has a tremendous character evolution story that really connects with me. The music is terrible though.

4. scrapped princess
Awesome, awesome, awesome anime with gorgeous animation. In a fantasy setting (...or is it?), your heroine is Pacifica, the poison who will destroy the world. Her adopted siblings are trying to save her from the hordes of people who want to kill her before she can turn 16 and kill everyone else, but deep down Pacifica isn't sure she should be saved. After all, if she's really supposed to destroy the world... I highly recommend this series to everyone. Everywhere.

5. neku/joshua
From Subaseka, Neku is your main character who starts out the Game hating everyone, and Joshua is his partner for the second week of the game -- an effeminate giggling boy who keeps making sly comments about staring at Neku's ass interspersed with his total manipulative bastardry. While I enjoy their relationship platonically probably more than as a couple, I can't stop enjoying the fact that Square-Enix is clearly aware of and encouraging the fangirl reaction to this pairing.

Also Neku tops, internet.

6. hinamori
Hinamori Momo is a character in Bleach. A bright and cheerful girl who was taken in by the most brilliant con artist in the series. People think Hinamori is a weak-willed idiot for being fooled, but she just picked the wrong guy to fall in love with. :\ But I love her relationships with her friends (Renji and Kira's little ringleader) (Hitsugaya's crush) (Nanao's bookworm buddy) and I love her potential. I played her ([ profile] truthward) at an RP for several months.

7. megami kouhosei
Megami Kouhosei, Candidate for Goddess, is a manga (the anime is much more bland) series that I was desperately in love with for like 2-3 years. I still have a good number of friends from that fandom -- friends I became really close with, which doesn't seem to happen anymore on the internet and I don't know why.

Anyway, it's a sci-fi series about a boy named Zero who goes to the Goddess Operator Academy to become a Goddess Pilot -- the Goddesses being five giant mecha. But the Goddesses aren't just robots; unknown to most people, they're alive, and they seem to have a strong connection to Zero and his hated rival Hiead. Also, Zero's partner/mysterious spiritual sister is a really hot catgirl.

Tragically, MK was never completed and it looks like the mangaka (D.N.Angel's creator Sugisaki Yukiru) may not pick it up again. Sigh.
sincere: DGM: Lenalee's back to the viewer ([kh-roxas] cold light)
I think everyone on the internet has done this by now, so I figured I might try it out.

It's pretty accurate. Looking for patterns and ideas in everything: see my love of canon and rational explanations for pairings. Slow to make friends but a lover of discussion and consideration, check. Seeking people who talk on the same level as me and thus inspire me, yesss.

The only thing I'd take objection to is the part about doling out harsh criticism. I am a critical bitch, but I'm not liable to level it directly, either because A) it wouldn't help and therefore isn't worth arguing, or B) it would hurt and therefore isn't something I'd feel good about.

Oh, and the wine part. I don't drink wine.

Also I'm not male.
sincere: DGM: Lenalee's back to the viewer ([dgm-kanda/lenalee] sharing)
So hatefully busy. But don't worry, I'm writing that Luke/Natalia fic~

I bought passes to Penny Arcade Expo. I hesitated, but I was full of resentment for my lame job and when I saw that the first day of PAX this year is my birthday, I said, this is a sign. Screw work.

Is anyone else going to PAX?

Also, MEME FOR NO REASON, stolen from [ profile] green_and_warty: Comment with a character or pairing, and I'll write one sentence of fic for them.

Maximum of five requests per person, you are encouraged to submit prompts but I suppose not required. I also reserve the right to write more than one sentence if my ideas get too big.

I fail so hard at porn it is astonishing. I have over 900 words on this thing and they both mostly still have clothes on and they both still have things they want to say.

Instead of writing more of it, I yank a meme from [ profile] unite.

I never used to do memes until I found the fun fandom ones. )

I need to play more FFXII:RW. I'm in chapter 7 now, I think, and I've lost all hope of getting the "alternate" ending. (But I bookmarked it on Youtube, so when I'm done, I'll be able to just go there and find it, mwahaha.

I've encountered a writing lull. You know what that means?

I'm going to go ahead and limit it to Bleach and Kingdom Hearts fandoms this time around. You can request any character or set of characters or pair of characters, but be warned that I tend to write on the level of hinty genfic 90% of the time.

Format is "Characters/Pairing: prompt", limit 2 requests per person. For example--

Rangiku/Orihime: on a string
Axel+Cid: morning coffee (Another Side)
Rukia: survival instincts

Post below and receive love in the form of 500 words of fic!

Finished prompts, Bleach:
Kira/Hinamori, Her Favorites (fluff)
Ichigo/Orihime, The Christmas Almost-Tragedy (fluff)
Urahara/Yoruichi, Shameless (racy)
Ichigo/Orihime, First-Time Boyfriend (fluff)
Renji/Rukia, Princess (fluff)
Shuuhei/Rangiku, The Promised Moment (fluff)

AU - Investing in the Future - Hinamori+Rangiku, various hints (fun)

Finished prompts, KH:
Sora/Namine, Before the Dawn Breaks (angst)
Cid+Kairi, Lady Friends (fun)

Finished prompts, KH/Bleach:
Demyx+Shuuhei, Nines (fun)

Original, Aria Anima: Cordelia+Aminde, Bridge (atmosphere)

I'm not usually much on memes, but I've seen a lot lately that I like.

Name a character from one of my fandoms and I'll give you
(a) three facts about them from my personal canon/fanon
(b) a reason he/she sucks
(c) a reason he/she is awesomecakes
(d) five things that never happened to that character
or and
(e) up to three people that character never fell in love with and why.

One character at a time, but not limited to one, if you're inspired.

Fandoms that are on my mind recently: KH, FF6-12, Suikoden 1-3, Tales of Symphonia/Abyss; Bleach, Avatar, Ouran, GetBackers, s.CRY.ed; um, Harry Potter

I saw this meme on [ profile] okroginator's LJ and decided to do it, apparently because I want to make people regret friending me because I hate their OTP. I couldn't help it. It involved pairing discussion, and I am weak to that.
