The good news is that my rearchiving project has finally gotten into a format I like and is going well. Currently, it's mostly stuff from Dreamwidth (like a recent set of Kamen Rider Gaim ficlets and commentfics) and the current Dots (archiving through Charmed).

But instead of feeling confident about my writing, my inner editor-type processes are working overtime. The ones that say that I can't write and maybe it's a good thing that nobody reads a lot of my fics, and maybe I shouldn't post to AO3, just into my own little corner so that people don't have to read my goshawful fics.

It's even affecting my in-progress stuff, which I'll go into under cut.

Academic uncertainty, or why in the heck did I think I could even start to cover the complexity that is love in Fatal Frame II? )

And now Kouta may be crushing on Michi which I did not mean to stick into Smoothing Skirts really )

It was fairly clumsy, but did work as long as I used the compiled vid and not the original source. This is Girl in Well from Fatal Frame I - a bit disturbing to look at, especially at close range.

I've been trying to produce a decent Let's Play of a video game for the last few years, but I got stuck because cellphone cameras on screens do not a great thing make. Plus, you can't film during daylight. (See some of my pictures on my Tumblr for how bad things can look, especially Fatal Frame IV.)

I broke down and bought a setup (cost me less than $100 USD) to record from the console. There are some downsides (I have to record my commentary track on my phone), but it works.
Nitty-gritty details )
And the first uploaded video from this process - Fatal Frame I part 1 )

Here's a hilarious typo in the English fansub for Fatal Frame IV. You encounter a ghost that's titled "Nurse seeking help". Well, when you go into the photos, she gets a little truncated and becomes "Nurse seeking Hel." Um, wrong part of the world there....

More adventures in the hospital/sanotarium )
And bonus shot of Fuyuko - you can't read the text, but it's the one with the typo. Big. )

I shouldn't really be starting this, because I'm still mid-playthrough of III and partly through a replaythrough of Fatal Frame I, but I bought this over a month ago and told myself I'd put the English patch on and at least look at it after Christmas. I had a little trouble with the patch, but was able to fix it with a tip from the bcl forums, which are the big ones for Fatal Frame fandoms. (The fix involved moving riivolution.) Drat my idiot 4.3u console!

Spooky stuff )
estirose: Minwu from Theatrhythm Final Fantasy celebrating victory (Chibi Minwu - Theatrhythm Final Fantasy)
Which is oddly fitting considering one of the fics I'm currently working on.

Basically, I won one of the prizes from the BCL (Beyond The Camera's Lens) fanfic/fanart contest. I'll just link the thread here so you can see: http://bcl.rpen.us/community/index.php?/topic/911-and-the-winners-are/

This was my winning entry: http://bcl.rpen.us/community/index.php?/topic/883-second-fic-entry-for-contest/ , which is mostly set between Fatal Frame I and Fatal Frame III.

(Sae has black stitching on her neck because of the way she died - she's the main antagonist of Fatal Frame II.)

Um... I made the mistake of picking a fight with Kyouka.
Game Over, Rei )

I played more Fatal Frame III, but didn't get a lot done. Unless you count multiple photos of dear Ruri.
Where's that radio coming from, and how do I tune it? )

For some reason, this was one of those places where playthroughs really stuck in my brain; once I put the clues together, I was okay.
More Kei )

Quite a bit of Fatal Frame 3 under the cut.
More and more and more )

First part of Fatal Frame III. Got myself a new icon for III as well!
Here be spoilers )

I got my [community profile] intoabar assignment. I am having Yae of Fatal Frame meet up with Wataru of Kamen Rider Kiva, apparently.
Small bits of spoilery stuff for Fatal Frame II and family in the games, as well as events in late Kiva )
I think I have a plot! Or at least a where and when and a general idea. I'm getting a small clarification regarding something, but I'm good otherwise.

I'm doing five levels (40 metas) for Fandom_Level. I figured it would be a change from writing fic.

Here are the metas I'm using to clear level 1. Note that these are all spoilery for the games.

1: Abduction as Seduction, or an alternate view of Mafuyu's motivations at the end of Fatal Frame I.
2: Amnesia, or the awareness of ghosts in the games.
3: Angst, which pretty much describes the whole game for players, characters, and ghosts.
4: Alternate Universes, which ponders how the various game endings can be thought of as semi-canonical alternate universes.
5: Bad Boys, or why Itsuki's good idea to rebel ultimately caused everything to go wrong.
6: Blindness, or tactics of the blind and blinding ghosts of the game.
7: Girls, or a discussion on International Womens' day of why I like the Fatal Frame games.
8: Blood, and how it's used to great effect in the games.

Also, thank you to the people who maintain the wiki at "Beyond the Camera's Lens", which I've found very useful for checking my facts.

Title: Four People Who Briefly Visited Himuro Mansion (And One Who Didn't Leave)
Fandom: Fatal Frame, with crossovers (PR Ninja Storm, RH+ (J-drama), Rurouni Kenshin, Sapphire and Steel)
Characters: Kei Amakura, Mafuyu Hinasaki, Blake Bradley, Sapphire, Kiyoi, Kirie Himuro, Jin-e
Note: Most of these take place post-game (after all, it happened in 1986!), one during (yes, during), and one prior to the Munakata family moving in. Jin-e is movie continuity, and his ficlet is AU. I'm using western name order for once.

Summary: Himuro Mansion gets a lot of visitors.

Four and one )

Seriously?

I did a bit of running around (I'll try to do it with a video camera next time, really) in Fatal Frame 2.

Running around getting doll parts. Really. )
