estirose: A blank book (Default)
I got my assignment for All In The Family, and I can write at least two fics for it, I think. I also am likely to write at least one other fic for the exchange, and maybe another, depending on muses.

I'm seriously thinking of writing for Soulbonding Exchange. I just have to attach the tropes I want for the various fandoms - I know the Red String/Cord for Mafuyu and Kirie, but I'm not sure what I'm going to do for Akane and Junpei, or Akane, Junpei and Carlos. I'm afraid I know much more about what I want to write than what I want to request.

As for WIP Bigbang, someone kindly broke the tie on my poll but more votes are welcome up to midnight UTC tomorrow. (If I fail to remember to register, I'll at least pledge to finish the fic in question.) Right now, the leader is "The Dreamt-Of Call".

ETA: Dragon Age Inqusition works better on my minimum spec replacement laptop than the one I bought it for, so far.

And some spoilerish stuff on Rune Factory 4 )
estirose: A teenager pays attention to the machine on his back. (Seto and PF - Fragile Dreams)
First of all, I got myself a Prompt Meme on AO3! If you want to leave me a prompt, feel free. (Be aware that it might take a while if I don't have easy access to my canon - I would have to redownload Tower Prep, for example.) I also have a Prompt post here on DW.

Why am I doing this? Because I signed up for [community profile] getyourwordsout and I'd like people to prompt me so I'm not just writing for myself. :)

Speaking of prompts, I'd love it if some more people looked at the entries in my WIP Big Bang poll. I've had one lovely, lonely voter and it would be great to just have at least one other person take a look at the poll entries as original fiction and vote. (I realized after I posted that that I could have added Scions of the Tomb, my unfinished NaNoWriMo novel. I'll post the teaser to that in a comment to the poll post.)

I have a prompt collection at AO3 if you want to leave me a prompt! But I realize not everybody uses AO3, so have a post in which to post prompts for me.

Fandoms and such )

I'm going to do WIP Big Bang this year. I've done a quick narrowing down of fics I'd like to finish. Since I write in a wide variety of fandoms, I'm going to do a quick pitch for each of them regardless of fandom.

ETA: I've added "Scions of the Tomb" to the list, but unfortunately I can't put it in the poll. The blurb/teaser is in the comments.

Notes under the cut regarding my thoughts plus the pitches )

So, I decided to see what Rune Factory was all about. I've had bad experiences with Harvest Moon but I love Stardew Valley (and you can apparently almost do a gay option in RF IV), and Rune Factory is probably the closest I can get to Stardew Valley on the 2DS/3DS for some reason.

This is apparently the first Rune Factory where you can start as a woman instead of a man. That is great! However, their way of having you choose a gender is by selecting a line of dialogue. You can easily figure out which one is the woman's by the sheer fikanta stereotypicalness.


I mean, there will be subtleties when translating from any other language, but the translators should know better.
estirose: Masumi against a red and black background (Black and Red - Boukenger)
With 475 fics and other fanworks in the archive, I thought I'd do this again. Underneath the cut are fics that show in my stats page as having a multiple of 25 hits. (It's probably less self-pimping than "random collection of fics that meet a certain criteria".)

Some of these are wonderful. Some of them are just archived. )

This will be added to the Agender Ganma post shortly, but it's split out as it fills a square on my GYWO bingo (which I need to paste to here), for beach with palm trees, featuring Chiyo, Gako, Haru, and Comede.

It's set after my Unconventional Courtship fic "A Dance We Do" and references it.
And probably is quite an infodump.... )
estirose: A girl in odd clothing dances in front of some fuzzy creatures (Erion)
I don't know if I'll finish this, but it's at least started. Fantasy Life/Kamen Rider Blade crossover, featuring Erion (my Fantasy Life NPC), Yuelia, Mutsuki and Nozomi.

(Who are not from Kiva, oops)

Mutsuki and Nozomi on the East Grassy Plains )
estirose: The words "Chophead Tinybits" in a speech bubble. (Chophead Tinybits - Girl Genius)
"If I don't say something, if I just lie still" - MILCK, "Quiet"

In an attempt to start saying something (because I need to fikanta start working on that), I talked to someone today who is totally ignorant about gender issues (that unfortunately I have to get along with - the best I can do is get them to start thinking). Long story short, I tried to explain that transgender people do not experience things the way that cisgender people do, and just because someone was born with female sexual organs does not mean that they cannot choose to be a boy. They argued that "male and female He created them" means that men are men and women are women and God intends to keep people in strict genders. (I responded that I do not read/interpret the Bible that way. Which I do not, because the Bible is going to reflect the pre-science era in which it was written.) They refused to understand that even if you believe that, it's nothing but respectful (they claim to respect people no matter what) to use the prounoun that the person prefers.

I understand that this person is not UU (and therefore hasn't made a choice to affirm and promote the first principle), but it's still frustrating. It's extremely, extremely rude in my view to ignore someone's pronoun choice. This situation has encouraged me to not keep quiet.

(Let's not even get into the current political situation and their attitude toward it....)

(I keep forgetting that reveals happen sooner now!)

Anyway, my main fic was written by sheaferotherdon, and my treat by lousy_science.

I wrote 9 fics this year! My main fic was "Know You Now A Cycle's Gone" (Ghostbusters 2016), and my pinch hit was "Why This Is So" (Monument Valley). In addition, I wrote 7 treats: "Five for the Five" (Stardew Valley), "Your Brief Moment" (Kamen Rider W/Kiva), "So meek and so mild" (Gladiator - Dami Im), "A Song With No End" (Fatal Frame III: The Tormented), "For the bones that tear" (Nancy Drew (Video Games)), "And If You Take My Hand" (Fantasy Life (Video Game)), and "Strengthened by the Vision" (Doubutsu Sentai Zyuohger).

This year, I titled all my fics after lyrics sung by Peter, Paul, and Mary. Also, I tried to stick a robot cat into whatever I could, and did some rather random unlabled minor crossovers.

They've learned over the last year and some to give Patty the lead when there's some sort of historical grudge at play. Your everyday jealousies, revenge killings, souls with unfinished business, and random demons they're all good at dealing with, but there's something about the long-gone that only Patty can handle.

This is a lovely fic that has Hamilton and Jefferson show up at the theatre because of Miranda's play Hamilton, and Patty having words with both of them. I'm not familiar with Hamilton, so I don't know if there are any subtleties that I missed, but I did enjoy Patty in it. (And my author is getting some well-deserved praise, which I will echo: it's great and you should read it!)

The undead are gone. The fighting is finished, and Mutsuki is normal again. Everything should be normal again.

It’s not.

This is very much a Nozomi focus, and as my anonymous author notes, her entire arc in Kamen Rider Blade is about helping Mutsuki, and that really isn't healthy. It's her slowly trying to get back to normal and finally breaking down before help arrives. I'm really thrilled, because Nozomi's one of my favorites in Blade, and my author picked that up and wrote me a fic!

It's time for my yearly guess-the-yuletide fic post!

This year, I have written 9 fics. These fics are in 9 fandoms with 9 recipients.
I've written in 7 of the 9 fandoms before, though one only very technically.
8 of the 9 have a female POV, while the remaining one has a male POV.
There are 5 gen fics, 2 F/F, 1 M/F, and 1 other.
5 are for video games, 2 are for TV series, 1 movie, and 1 that falls under music/bands. (Yay for 5-minute fandoms!)
5 are of English-language origin, while 4 are of Japanese origin.

Can you guess what I wrote? Comments are screened.
estirose: One twin sleeps on the other's shoulder (Mio sleeps the sleep of the dead - Proje)
Well, sort of. I got curious about my top fics for each fandom to see if they had anything in common. So, I took fics from every fandom with more than 3 fics and looked at the top two of them. And I tried to note anything that seemed to be trending period at the end.

Some are large fandoms, but most are small )
