First off, thank you so much, dear author, for writing for me. Above all else, I hope you have fun writing these awesome 'ships because if you have fun, dear author, I will have fun reading whatever you come up with. If you need some help/inspiration/rambles on why I love these 'ships, there are a lot of words behind the cut. :D

= Only got up to episode 23 of Power Rangers S.P.D. before I suddenly started watching Samurai Sentai Shinkenger i.e. the Japanese version of Power Rangers Samurai. (Hopefully more coherent thoughts on S.P.D. as a whole after I finish it to follow. I know I should've seen it before watching Samurai because the whole time I was watching SPD, I was imagining Mentor Ji had suddenly gone evil and it messed with my mind.) HOLLLLY MACKEREL IT'S SO AWESOME it's about ten times more awesomer than Samurai, sorry sorry. But in Samurai, there are nagging questions like "but! how did the samurai end up in a California-esque place?!!" (I know it's called "Panorama City" but that doesn't mean anything really.) "Why is Jayden's last name Shiba??" "And WHY IS A WHITE GUY LEADING A TEAM OF POC??" Except for these nagging questions, Shinkenger is basically the same show though but somehow more awesome???? IDK why do american shows suck so much?

Having said all that though, I still love Samurai, but now I feel like any one of them could've played Jayden and that it didn't have to actually be Alex Heartman. I heart Alex Heartman and his boyish good looks as much as the next fangirl, and it does feel strange to imagine anyone else in the role, but after seeing the Japanese version, I feel like it'd at least solve the problematic racial aspect of the show. It's just a thought experiment.

= Before becoming obsessed with Shinkenger out of nowhere, I also caught about five random episodes of Gogo Sentai Boukenger (because of a fic obviously) and liked it as well. After Shinkenger, I'll start watching it properly in order. (Only got through two episodes of Operation Overdrive, the Americanized version of Boukenger--well, an episode and a half--before I started wondering if there was another PR series I could marathon already. Sigh. Maybe after I've watched all the interesting Super Sentai shows, I'll come back to OO. ngl, I just want to come to that epic episode where Adam comes back and they team up with Tori, Xander, Kira, and Bridge because they're all my favorites.)

= I also signed up for PR Femslash Ficathon 2014 because I love both things immensely though I haven't really written any PR femslash before now. The letter for it might show up here soon because, while signing up I started to ramble and ramble and was like, maybe people wouldn't like to actually read such long ramblings on the sign up page?? despite the long ramblings for some of requests I had chosen, I had a hard time coming up with prompts because I literally like everything so my impulse is to just write to have fun, but I realize that is also super unhelpful so I endeavored to come up with random prompts. Coming up with prompts is sooooo hard though.

So you know there are spoilerphobes. Well, I'm the opposite of those--a spoilerphile, spoiler-lover, anti-spoilerphobe?? (We need a good name; this will bug me now.)

Not unrelated to the above, I got through the entirety of Power Rangers Megaforce on Netflix, thinking I'd be able to watch the next season, Super Megaforce, instantly BECAUSE OF ALL THE AWESOME CAMEOS OBVIOUSLY. No such luck though. :/ I shouldn't be that disappointed seeing as the season isn't even finished (BUT I THOUGHT IT WAS SERIOUSLY WHY DID I THINK EPISODES AIRED FEB. THROUGH MAY?? THAT'S SO STUPID.) But you can't just go to the end of Megaforce--on a freakin' cliffhanger where the robots/alien monsters with the weird heads come on the scene and THE LEGENDARY BATTLE is teased--without being frustrated that you have to wait until the season's finished and Netflix adds it.

+ I am kinda sad not a whole lot of you are on LJ anymore, but I get it. The site has not been user-friendly for a number of years, and people need to do what people need to do. But LJ and DW are, I think, the only platforms that invite intimate conversations about our daily lives. Twitter is good for snippets and random thoughts that pop into your head, sure, but not conducive to lengthy conversations without feeling like you'd break Twitter, and/or annoying if you have to go over the character limits, and Tumblr is unwieldy re: personal texts, and writing, imho. Tumblr's mostly good for graphics and music. Not that Tumblr /can't/ be used for text posts, but the archive system is shit and I can never reply to people's post because the site is not made for such things. (I mean, I /can/ reply but it entails me going to my dashboard, and I never scroll through my dashboard anymore because I'd never get out of tumblr if I did that, so now if I want to reblog/like things on tumblr, I go to the individual tumblrs themselves and that's not conducive to replying, is what I meant). I have friended a number of you lovely people on DW, so there's that. What I'm saying is, I'll be here, if people find themselves wandering back around or visiting for the first time. I'll be like that one grandmother who loves to hang out on the porch, and wave at random people passing by.

+ Mighty Morphin Power Rangers the Movie is getting a reboot! I can't see this news as being anything other than awesome because a whole new generation of Power Rangers fans! What's there not to like?

I signed up for another bingo. I know, I know. I've yet to finish trope_bingo, but I just couldn't resist this one. It's Power Rangers themed. Also, PRtropebingo does not have a schedule like the rest, so y'know whenever I get to them...And, for no reason at all, my love for the series has come back full force recently. (Well, okay, it could also be because I've only been watching Power Rangers on Netflix and nothing else. I kinda feel bad about it, but PR is so cracktastic and awesome and I'm pretty sure this is not just the nostalgia talking, so I also *don't* feel bad that I've only been watching them on Netflix.)

So what I've learned is that writing porn gets me over my writer's block (that Ouat/Pushing Daisies gen story was something I've been ruminating about for a while now and as such is an outlier). I don't know if this will always work, but seems to be doing the trick so far.

So at the beginning of this month, I had said that I wanted to write everyday for  [livejournal.com profile] 31_days because I want EVEN MORE CHALLENGES (like going to college full-time and working and trying to fit in studying and watching/keeping up with popular culture was not enough of a challenge for me, I have to go ahead and try to challenge myself to write every day too.)


There will definitely be a masterlist at the end and everything. Because dammit, after EVERYTHING, a master list will be AWESOME.

The thing is, here we are at day thirteen and I'm already deflated and wanting to just nap and not write. (Not that I'll beg for encouragement or anything because I don't want to seem TOO DESPERATE even though I totally am so very desperate.)
Meh. Anyways: LOOOOOK AT ALL THE SHINIES THAT I HAVE WRITTEN (that I'll hate after this month, but let's not think about that right now):

February 2012: Mixed Fandoms
  • 1st: The Earth is frozen solid, like a heart that will not love - First Interlude [Power Rangers: Ninja Storm, Cam/Hunter]
  • 2nd: My love a beacon in the night - this is my winter song [Power Rangers: Ninja Storm, Cam/Hunter, Blake/Tori]
  • 3rd: O, for a muse of fire! - do the Helen Keller and talk with your hips [Power Rangers: Ninja Storm, Cam/Hunter]
  • 4th: A candle burned on the table - First Comes Love [Power Rangers: Ninja Storm, Blake/Tori, Cam/Hunter]
  • 5th: Snowflakes are kisses from heaven - Waiting for Tomorrow [InuYasha, Kagome/InuYasha]
  • 6th: As seek to quench the fire of love with words I FAILED MISERABLY HERE BUT WILL TRY TO GET A STORY FINISHED BY AMNESTY DAY
  • 7th: ...Some say in ice - It's what friends are for [Warehouse 13, Steve, Claudia, gen]
  • 8th: Words are only painted fire - Back to the Beginning [Power Rangers: Mystic Force, Madison/Nick]
  • 9th: Only ice in the blood - ice inside your soul [The Vampire Diaries, Caroline/Tyler, Caroline/Klaus]
  • 10th: Fire is never a gentle master - In your arms and in your heart [Power Rangers: Lightspeed Rescue, Dana/Ryan] [also written for Porn Battle 13]

  • 13th: Love is the fire of life -- consuming, purifying. - For Always and Forever [Power Rangers: Mystic Force, Madison/Nick]
It's overwhelmingly Power Ranger based. Which. Y'know. I sometimes get a nostalgic craving to re-watch and suddenly...there's fic. Although it's kinda funny that I'm only now catching up on Mystic Force just for the fandom - as small as it is, after having sworn that Power Rangers ended for me after Ninja Storm and that was IT. A grown lady should not immerse herself in any more in kid-stuff. Clearly I have no qualms any more about anything.

Finished a fic late last night and posted it today after a quick self-beta:

like a journey i just don't have a map for (1398 words)
Fandom: Power Rangers: Ninja Storm
Rating: Teen
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Hunter Bradley/Cameron Watanabe
Summary: Cam gets drunk, and tries to sleep with Hunter. It kinda doesn't work out for him that way.
Notes: Written for [community profile] smallfandomfest for fest10. For the prompt: Power Rangers, Ninja Storm, Cam/Hunter, morning after

I had wanted to write for this prompt many, many moons ago (alright - more like two fests or something-like-that ago). But then I could never write the beginning I wanted, and then this fic ended up being rewritten three times before it ever really was even finished so of course it's taken me like half a year or something to totally complete it and post it.

I like it now - as much as I like anything that I produce creatively (which is not very much - I'm sure, a month or two from now, I'll be embarrassed to remember I wrote this - my insecurities, ladies and gents).

BUT YAYYYYYYYY FINALLY IT'S FINISHED! *crosses off one fic, two more to go*


I had also considered titling this "At the bottom of the bottle" but I don't know. And then I happened to be listening to Savage Garden in the background when I was finishing up and decided to steal the title from their lyrics.

Of course I was totally right about a theory I have and this thing that keeps happening to me where if I leave a story hanging in the middle of writing it, I have SUCH a hard time getting back to it. Like. So much difficulty, it's unbelievable.

I started writing this fic on Christmas Day, and I got through 977 words in one sitting. Then I left to do something, don't remember now, maybe to go eat or something (or to play Bejeweled), and when I got back to it, I had no idea how to continue. I hate when that happens - I make a good headway on a story and then I leave it for awhile to go do other things and when I come back to it, it's like I haven't looked at the story in YEARS (when - in reality - it's only been several hours at the most).

I always say I want to finish writing at least three prompts for the fest, but then January 31st comes around and I've like written one or none. Really, really hope I can break that trend this year.
