[sticky entry] Sticky: Estirose's prompts 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 )

Remix! (And some slight other bits about writing)

Remix Revival has opened for reading, and my remixer did this:

A Bright Girdle Furled (Skip to 46 Remix) (1297 words) by Anonymous
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Kamen Rider Drive
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Shijima Kiriko, Banno Tenjuurou, Shijima Gou, Chase | Mashin Chaser, Heart Roidmude, Brain Roidmude, Medic Roidmude
Additional Tags: Alternate Universe - Canon Divergence

Kiriko faces her father a final time.

(Very AU.)

I'd figured, after some present-shaking, that either "An Apparition Not Looking Up", (where Kiriko does a certain thing instead of Gou in episode 46, and things do not happen to Chase Spoiler )) or "Taking Up A Tape" (partly-robotized Kiriko and Gou are kidnapped by a well-meaning Heart as children) were the most likely to be remixed. I was partially right - my remixer actually remixed "A Bright Girdle Furled", which shares a few things in common with "An Apparition Not Looking Up", but is about Kiriko successfully transforming into Drive. ("Girdle" was written as part of my yearly June ficspam, and I still had "Apparition" on the brain when I wrote it.)

So, this remix is set during episode 46 (where "Apparition" is set), but Kiriko is Drive and they've presumably taken care of another fight Spoiler ) in the same episode. Obviously, in this universe characters who did not survive in canon survive (more or less) in this timeline, and some family relationships are established that weren't in the original one. I suspect I know who wrote this, so I don't think I'll be surprised when reveals come, but it's always lovely to see their writing. Hopefully they'll write more in this universe!

On the writing end, I did post my remix barely on time and I think my remixee liked it? I think they'll also be able to figure out it's me if they look closely as we do share a fandom or two. I did have to do quite a bit of canon review for the character voices which delayed the remix.

I'm working on two fics for the moment and hope to get to a third. I've got one for Remix Madness that I'm trying to post on time, a second I'm kind of stuck on (hi Jade, please cooperate, I know I'm old enough to be your mum but I would like to write this), and I'm trying to get at least something out for Fandom Giftbox. And I need to make a final editing pass on a certain something.

Happy Birthday tptigger!

Happy birthday to [personal profile] tptigger, my partner in writing!

Sorry for the belatedness! RL threw me for a loop the last few days. I have a fic coming that I will post when RL stops throwing me curveballs.

(Also, I will finally finish doing my critique on you-know-what this month so that we can get it up, sorry!)

On a hilarious note

One of the characters in Kamen Rider Build is surnamed Himuro, with the same kanji as the Himuro family of Fatal Frame I. Now I'm going to have to watch this just to get his background and see if I can write a crossover.

Final Fantasy XIV: Dad of Light

Not a game - it's a jdrama about this young man who wants to reconnect with his father, who won't tell him why he suddenly retired from work. So he presents his father with a PS 4 and a copy of Final Fantasy XIV, which is a MMO, and hides the fact that he's also playing so that they can have adventures without his dad knowing. Netflix brought it over to the U.S. and it's rather fun.

And Tokusatsu fans probably know this, but I've spotted Swan from Dekaranger as the mother, Alata from Goseiger (who was also Huni in the live action Ouran High School Host Club) as the main character Mitsuko, and Medic from Kamen Rider Drive as Yuko, one of his coworkers. This is the second time I've seen the actress for Swan playing a mother - the first time was in the Japanese adaptation of Hana Yori Dango.

Spoilerish stuff for the first three episodes )

Rare Pair Fest!

I picked up a pinch hit for Rare Pair Fest! One of the requested fandoms was Rune Factory 4, any pairing, and heck, I can write that!

As long as the thought (1215 words) by Estirose
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Rune Factory 4
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Blossom/Volkanon
Characters: Blossom (Rune Factory), Volkanon (Rune Factory)

Volkanon begins to see Blossom in a new light.

(Anybody who read "Glimmering and Vast" could probably figure out I wrote "As long as the thought", since Blossom talks about Frey's "I love you!" in that story. For those not familiar with Rune Factory 4, Blossom and Volkanon are the oldest human inhabitants of the town.)

Games and writing assignments (not in that order)

1. I got my assignment for [community profile] remixrevival and I think I have a story that I can remix! I matched on a bigger fandom than I usually write in, and one I need to canon review, but hey, at least I have something!

(I'm hoping my collection of stories isn't too overwhelming for the person who got me. I write a lot! I'm sorry.)

2. I'm still trying to get inspiration for FandomGiftbox! I'm hoping to make 3 fills, more if I can.

3. I got MiiTopia in the mail yesterday. I'm currently enjoying it, and may have my first fic for the game. (Although I'll have to find new names for my main and my trio of companions, as my MC is named after me, and my companions are Yuelia, Laura, and Erion.)

ETA: I've gotten to where the Dark Lord snatched all my companions away and now I have Mafuyu and Kirie. I'm sure I'll get a third party member, and then I'll add Miku. Or Yae.

4. Just a bit of talking about last month's fic )

Remix Revival!

I signed up for [community profile] remixrevival! I ended up with a selection of fandoms that I think would be good, and included Power Rangers, Kamen Rider, and the Fatal Frame series in general. Hopefully people will sign up in those fandoms so I can have something to remix (I did offer some big fandoms so I have someone I can remix, but I'm hoping I get someone in one of my regular fandoms.) You only have to have one fandom that's considered remixable (5 fics of 100 or more or 3 fics of 500 or more) to join.

Remixes are fun and interesting - you take someone else's fic and put your own spin on it - it's almost like picking up a prompt from, say, Yuletide and writing it. I've written remixes of drabbles before - "Noble Boxes (The Doomed Italian remix)" for Doctor Who (classic) and "Coldish Hell (The Frozen Face Remix)" (Plants vs Zombies).

Remix Revival poll

I'm doing [community profile] remixrevival this year, because I love doing remixes. I looked at all fandoms on AO3 where I think I have the minimum requirements (5 over 100 words or 3 over 500 words) and had more than 5 fics. I'm curious to see if anybody on my FL is considering doing Remix Revival, and if so, what of my fandoms we might match on. (Note that there are fandoms here that I know are problematic and I know some of my FL doesn't like them, but I'm including them anyway for the sake of completeness.)

This got a bit long because I write in far too many fandoms. )

Fic commentary meme

Snagged from [personal profile] lost_spook because I'm a bit bored:

Pick any story I've written, or, in the case of my longer, chaptered works, any chapter from any story I've written, and comment to this post with that selection. I will then give you the equivalent of a DVD commentary on that snippet: what I was thinking when I wrote it, why I wrote it in the first place, what's going on in the character's heads, why I chose certain words, what this moment means in the context of the rest of the fic, lots of awful puns, and anything else that you’d expect to find on a DVD commentary track.

Unbirthday ficspam #9!

(I like writing in the GSIB universe, even if it's kind of a joke fandom and everything is pretty much original fic in it.)

Ryuuji was proud of his people. )

Fic #3 for my Unbirthday Ficspam!

Summary: Kirie watches the Family Master slaughter the Himuro family, and is happy. (T; canon-typical violence, mostly courtesy of the Family Master, with child death)

On AO3 here.

This is both an expansion and an AU to the flashback scenes in the game, as I had the Family Master die in a slightly different place than he did die in-game, I believe.

It felt so good. )
