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 )

So, very annoyingly, there's a set of spambots hitting AO3. All for a streaming sports site. (It is streamonline247 (dot com), and it also has an AO3 account by that name with nothing posted.) I know it took someone I know about 10 days between applying for and getting an AO3 account, this is also rather worrying that they're willing to put a bunch of emails in queue to register and hit all at once.

(I feel sorry for Abuse; I have IFTTT giving me all stories that come up just for Tokusatsu fandoms and got three of the spambots. One spammed a lot of fandoms that had "ghost" in the name, therefore hitting Kamen Rider Ghost and Ghost Soup Infidel Blue.)

There are things I'm still working on (...goshdarnit), but Remix Revival did author reveals and Fandom Giftbox opened, so I'm just going to quickly (or so) post on it.

Among the Shattered Tales (The girl once helped remix) (1235 words) by Estirose
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Dungeons and Dragons (Cartoon)
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Sheila "the Thief", Hank "the Ranger", Original Female Character(s)
Additional Tags: Implied Sheila/Hank

She has many stories, but for some reason a lot of people like this one.

I'm sure anybody who has subscribed to me on AO3 saw this particular fic, but I thought I might mention it anyway. It's a remix of [personal profile] lost_spook's "Promises", where Sheila has to make a tough choice about saving her party vs getting back home. I was fully intending to remix something in Doctor Who (which is what I matched on) or Sapphire and Steel, but I just decided randomly to read "Promises" and well... I wrote fic.

Short notes )

Someone So Lovely (The Bedtime Remix) (693 words) by Estirose
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Dragon Age: Inquisition
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Female Cadash/Josephine Montilyet
Characters: Female Cadash, Josephine Montilyet

Marijn thinks about her beloved Josephine as they share a bed littered with books and reports.

For Remix Madness, I did two things I'd never done before: Remixed from art and wrote in Dragon Age: Inquisition! SQBR and I both lurk in Magical Diary fandom, and I thought I'd be remixing one of the two Magical Diary pieces. But I liked the idea of Marijn Cadash (and managed to run across the notes on the Marijn playthrough), and I love romancing Josephine, so I ended up writing fic. I had to go check several playthroughs for the dialogue between the two of them and also the dwarf Inquisitor background since I didn't have time to get it all. The title came from a line that the Herald utters early on in the Josephine romance.

Rie wants an adventure, and Haruna wants to finally solve her first case.

Hidari Rie/Terui Haruna.

"By the Bright Fireside" was for Zal (phidari on AO3), prompt being Haruna with her OC girlfriend (who was Shoutarou's and Philip's daughter). It follows up the story "Your Brief Moment" that I wrote for Zal in last year's Yuletide. (That one involved Haruna and her friend Masao running across a haunted house and barely escaping.) This time, Rie wants adventure, so Haruna decides now is a good time to get that done.

Katida makes her first visit to her friend Cindro's lair.

This wasn't originally intended to be posted outside Fandom Giftbox, but I just got it up. Morbane wanted human/dragon interaction, so I wrote 660 words of good friends (and potential spouses, once Cindro's sister Reika thuds the two of them on the head a couple of times because they're so dense). She seems to be okay with it going up on AO3, so it's on AO3.

On the receiving end, the Kamen Rider Drive fic from Remix Revival was written by Revieloutionne, which I'd previously guessed. The Mulan ficlet was written by snowynight, who needs to write more of Mei.

I got two gifts for Fandom Giftbox: a set of Starman (TV) icons from tarlanx, and a small Sae and Yae Fatal Frame II ficlet from secretstaircase.

Mulan and Shang's daughter is on a crossroad of her life, and relies on her memory to find her path in life.

Yep, it's a real drabble! I would have liked to see more of the OC, so maybe when authors are revealed I'll find who she belongs to and hopefully she shows up in more of their fic.

My muses have deserted me as of late, so I haven't done any writing. Which sucks, because the [community profile] fandomgiftbox entries close tonight. I'm one of the needy participants, but Zal (phidari on ao3) is also one (Pokemon Sun & Moon commercials, Jem & The Holograms, Kamen Rider Ghost, Kamen Rider W, Lunar, Fairune/Fairune 2, and Stephen Universe). I'm fine with not getting any gifts (my requests were kind of on the spare side, just fandom, characters, and a 1-2 word prompt), but apparently it will not open until everybody has two. Had I known that, I would have not DNW'd generic greetings! I did request Doctor Who with Tegan figuring that someone or two could fill it, but the rest of my fandoms are apparently a bit unfamiliar - Fantasy Life (Damien/PC, Roque, Olivia), Kamen Rider Blade (Nozomi,Shima), Sekirei (Yukari/Shiina, Kusano), Starman (TV) (Scott, Jenny), The Tomorrow People (1990s) (Lisa), and Zero / Project Zero / Fatal Frame (series) (Sae, Miku, Mafuyu).

ETA: I'm off the needy giftboxes list!

(And I am in the midst of a birthday ficlet, but I've not been having a great two weeks - it's coming, though!)

ETA: My writer for Remix Revival replied, and I'm pretty darn sure that I'm not going to be surprised at the reveals. I wrote in both Revival and Madness, and hopefully my Revival remixee won't be too surprised either. My Madness recipient probably will be, since we do match a fandom but not the one I remixed.

All of my fandoms finally got approved! One of them must have caused a bit of a headache because it just got approved sometime in the last 12 hours.

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 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!)

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.
estirose: A blank book (Default)
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 )

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!

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.)

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 )

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).

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. )
estirose: Gatack-Kagami being shielded from an explosion by Makoto-worm. (Sometimes we do make a difference - KR K)
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.
