I participated in troublefest again (honestly this might be my last time because, while I do love writing fics for other people, I don't love Haven as much as I used to). We'll see. This season needs to not disappoint me like s4 has--not that I hated s4 technically, but it's my least favorite.

I had meant for this to be an existential fic because that's the kinda mood Haven gets me in. I don't know if I succeeded or not. Also, it features Agent Howard, who I loved before he tragically and unnecessarily died. I have a lot of thoughts on Mara and Audrey and Howard and the Barn; not sure if all are correct and/or will end up being canon, but that part I don't really care about--I like thinking about how I'd solve some of the questions the show teases us about while I wait on them to give us some definitive answers (if they do ever decide to give us some answers...)

I also somehow managed to finish my PR Femslash fic--dudes, let me tell ya: I've just not been in the greatest writing mood these past four or so months. But it's done and I don't hate it. But that's probably because it features one of my favoritest lady characters so. I'll crosspost that fic once the archive goes live.

I failed so spectacularly during round 2--well, I got in two fics, which is above & beyond for me, so shall try it again for another round (it also helps that the bingo has become annual rather than biannual).

Overall Thoughts:
This year, I wrote less overall, but I wrote more words. I think?? It feels more like a quality over quantity year anyhoo (there are several fics on here I've re-read without being embarrassed I wrote such drivel, whereas compared to past years, not so much.)

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.)

+ Everyone should go and sign up for [community profile] intoabar and write fantastic crossover fic. :DD (Sign ups close in a day or so, however.)

+ I've also been gobbling up a new jdrama called Switch Girl. The premise really reminded me of Kare Kano (um...both a manga and anime I need to catch up on someday) but it's actually based on another manga of the same name? I'm just sad that there isn't a drama based on Kare Kano--that'd make me speed things up, though SG was not the drama I intended to watch at all, but this is how these things apparently happen now. (Speaking of manga/anime I'd like to be adapted into dramas, the list would also include Fruits Basket, and InuYasha.)

I can finally talk about the Troublesfest story I wrote for [personal profile] blackeyedgirl since stories were revealed yesterday.

My Love Is a Tiny City
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Archive Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Category: Multi
Fandom: Haven
Relationship: Duke Crocker/Audrey Parker/Nathan Wuornos
Additional Tags: Gift Fic, Polyamory, Fade to Black, Threesome - F/M/M
Collections: TroublesFest 2013

I really liked my assignment! And I love writing gift fics. And why I wish this story was longer and better and...Well, it did go over the requisite 1k words, but I'm still not happy with it. I think it featured waaaaaay too much exposition and telling, not showing and ughhh. I had the perfect story in my head. While flopping on what to write, I finally decided on showing something about Audrey's, Duke's, and Nathan's relationship which I really love. And I really want this threesome to be canon like no threesome ship I've ever shipped before. I just really love both Duke/Audrey together and Audrey/Nathan together and Duke/Nathan together.

The Duke/Nathan fic though--which I've tentatively titled 'there are no words, there is only you'--is still chugging along. I really want to finish it before the end of this month, but, eh, we'll see. *thinks about the pile of reading for school I should be doing right at this moment & the amount of writing I want to do and it's enough to make my head explode*


In more personal, real life news, we have a cousin coming from Serbia this Friday and both my Aunt J (who this cousin is staying with while she's in America) and my mom are going crazy, trying to get their houses ready. Mom yesterday tore up the rugs in the kitchen, scrubbed the floors clean, brought new rugs and then set up the bigger entertainment system Aunt J threw away and gave to us alongside our older, albeit smaller entertainment system.

I'm like, wheeeeeeee! Yes, cleaner carpets~!!! New bigger entertainment system!!! Is it Christmas already?! (We've had the old carpets since we moved here somewhere around when I was in the fifth grade i.e. 2001 so it was about time.) My dad, otoh, who was standing around, helping when Mom needed to move something, went, "Why all this fuss? She's not staying with us, we're only going to be entertaining her when J is at work."

My mom's reply was something along the lines of how everything over there is much cleaner and we'll be judged if we don't do something.

So there was that.

It just brings to mind that, if I ever have my own place (ha! do I have big dreams) and if my mother, and/or any other family member, ever comes for a visit (assuming I don't live a block away by then), I'll have to tear up my whole place and clean it from the ground up.

The point being, I *don't* enjoy living in a pigsty and I love when everything is clean and has that shiny, new look but I just don't want to do the work to entail that cleanliness. Why does life have to be so hard?

Day Twenty: Top Five Most Annoying Celebrities
  1. The Kardashians—any of ‘em, all of them
  2. Lady Gaga
  3. Justin Bieber (and Selena Gomez to an extent)
  4. Brittany Spears
  5. Miley Cyrus

This fic is due in three days, self, three days, ughhh why isn't it finished yet??

Also, school starts tomorrow. Meh.

Day Nineteen: Top Five Favorite Sandwiches
  1. I usually just have a turkey sandwich every day
  2. It’s awesome
  3. But the chicken teriyaki footlong from Subway is awesome too (but even though it’s less than $10, I can’t have it every day)
  4. Basically I’ll eat anything and it’ll be my favorite (except fish sandwiches—but I can’t tolerate salmon or fish out of the can even on the best days so there’s that)
  5. chicken sandwich (which is totally diff. from the chicken teriyaki footlong sandwich from above)


The thing with this fic is that it's much easier to write it in Duke's voice than it is in Audrey's or Nathan's. This is strange because I over-identify strongly with Nathan--he could be a /male/ version of me, what we've seen so far of his character. Duke is one of those characters whom I really love in my stories, but if he was someone I knew in real life, I'd probably want to punch him, averse as I am to any kind of violence. (Huh. I guess maybe that's why he and Nathan get into fistfights so much--Nathan can't control himself and HAS to punch him.)

This is all to say, I thought that beginnings were hard to write. But, nope. It's pretty much the whole shebang. Sigh.

2) Give me an AU setting. (non-AU is awesome too, just indicate)
3) I will write you a three-sentence fic.

So I went and signed up for cottoncandy_bingo on DW; I might regret it since school is starting up again for me this coming Tuesday and I will not have any brain function for anything creative whatsoever but well...we'll see.

And schmoop_bingo is kinda dead now and I've missed it because it was the perfect kind of bingo for me. But cottoncandy_bingo seems to be the same kind of bingo so I'll take it.
dahlia_moon: (batgirl!steph)
Am still in denial that I've turned twenty-one. Not to make any one here feel older but this is old enough, okay? stop aging self.

There was some wine-tasting. It was as horrible as I thought it might be. And a Pushing Daisies marathon that left me wanting more. :/ Damn it, show. You ended with even more questions than you started with. (I wanted more story lines about Ned's father; he clearly knows about his son but where has he been these past twenty years of his son's life?!)

And writing. Wrote some more on that Young Justice story.

and I screen-capped the story lines I wrote out on Twitter so I can have them for later (read from bottom up):

On the academic front, I only have to show up for one final on Tuesday for the poetry class. Of course that means I have one English essay and one Philosophy essay to hand in before semester's end next Friday and of course I haven't started either essay. Thankfully no Biology lab and creative writing final.

"A Refusal to Mourn the Death, by Fire1, of a Child in London
Dylan Thomas

Never until the mankind making
Bird beast and flower
Fathering and all humbling darkness
Tells with silence the last light breaking
And the still hour
Is come of the sea tumbling in harness

And I must enter again the round
Zion2 of the water bead
And the synagogue of the ear of corn
Shall I let pray the shadow of a sound
Or sow my salt seed
In the least valley of sackcloth to mourn

The majesty and burning of the child's death.
I shall not murder
The mankind of her going with a grave truth
Nor blaspheme down the stations of the breath
With any further
Elegy of innocence and youth.

Deep with the first dead lies London's daughter,
Robed in the long friends,
The grains beyond age, the dark veins of her mother,
Secret by the unmourning water
Of the riding Thames.
After the first death, there is no other.

1 During the firebombing of London, known as the Blitz, in World War II
2 Heaven (from a Palestinian citadel, the nucleus of Jerusalem)


Also, if anyone feels obliged indulging me - what are your favorite sad songs? I'm compiling a playlist of sad songs to listen to while writing (because I've found having the right music on in the background is the perfect catalyst to be in the right mood for what I need to be writing) . This brought to by my creative writing teacher who gave us "little coffin" as this week's writing prompt. Yes, I don't think I'm clever enough yet to make that a *humorous* story so might as well cave in and try to make my whole class sob as much as possible. It's possible that I am a little evil. But only a little. :D

So far my list includes:

Pearl Jam's "Last Kiss"
Scorpions "Wind of Change"
Stone Sour's "Through Glass"
Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go On"
Sia's "Breathe Me"
Birdy's "Skinny Love" and "Shelter"
Snow Patrol's "Run"
James Blunt's "Goodbye My Lover" (which doesn't help if you've seen Ten/Rose fanvids set to this song)

DIRECTIONS: List the ten stories on Archive of Our Own.org with the greatest number of hits and if you wish, leave commentary about what you think it means.
BONUS/OPTIONAL QUESTION: What are your top ten favourites of your stories at AO3?

Really, the reason why these stories got as much hits as they did was because they featured hot guys getting it on with other hot guys. Alas, gen and femslash pieces do not get as many hits.

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]
  • 11th: In the ice of its own indifference - You Don't See Me [Power Rangers: Ninja Storm, Dustin/Marah]
  • 12th: Some say the world will end in fire - Curiosity Killed the Cat [Power Rangers: Lightspeed Rescue, Dana/Ryan]
  • 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.

I've suddenly become one of those people who shower in the morning and I hate that because it means I have to get up two hours before my usual 10 a.m. waking up. I like sleep, damnit, but of course I wouldn't have to take showers in the morning if I went to bed at a reasonable hour and didn't pass out before taking said shower but there's SO MUCH TO DO arghhhhhhhh *loopy in the morning*

In other news, I'm trying to write every day for [livejournal.com profile] 31_days for the month of February (because the themes are gorgeous - see them here). Gosh, have I missed writing for this comm. And I really, really hope I can be successful in writing every day. Although, my writing's mostly hit-and-miss during school. I should've planned ahead more and written more than three fics (well a total of two finished fics for the first two days and just a tiny one where I just scribbled a sentence or two) but what can you do?

Also, Porn Battle 13 is almost here! (Prompting is open until this Thursday.) Yay! This is what I go to when I just can't write anything. Because writing about porn apparently doesn't take any inspiration.

my prompts )

Also, also, have to read Hamlet again for Intro to Literary studies. I'm loving it more this time around then when I had to read it in high school. (I want to call Hamlet "Ham Ham" just because it amuses me so. But only in my head.)

Man, I'm so tired. Is it February break yet? No? Damn.
dahlia_moon: (Sokka's ready for takeoff)
I kept waiting for some awesome Mason/Alaric/Damon and wheeeeeee!! someone finally answered my prayers - Here Comes Another Fall from Grace (I'm Always Falling On My Face)

And this is the lone story I wrote for Fall Fandom Free For All:
Sigh. It doesn't look like I'll be filling in any of the other prompts. Some are awesome and I'd like to write more for it, but the blankness I get whenever I try to start one of them is mocking me and so I start hating it and walk away in a huff. Well, fine prompt, if you don't want to be written, I won't write you. *iz five*

Speaking of writing, I started a document a while ago where I drop random titles that pop into my head for future stories that I might want to write. So far there are only several titles with no stories:

oo1: this isn't the apocalypse, but if it were, there'd be more angst

oo2: all the right moves

oo3: strawberry girl

oo4: the last will and testament of bruce wayne

oo5: the batgirl club

Of course, it also happens that the ideas I do have floating in my head and that I'm trying to write down have no titles. I don't even know.

Also, more speaking of writing: trolling[livejournal.com profile] mini_nanowrimo's friends' page, I found that someone had linked to something called Yarny...which looks like it's a writing program. Or something. For serious writers, who attempt novels every November (aka people who are NOT me but it looks fun to fool around with).

I haven't fooled around with it too much, but it looks like a plain Word document that also acts like an outline thingy. (I know there're similar programs out there but they cost money and this one looks like it's free>.) Which is yay for me because outlining for me does not end pretty. It's also providing to be useful for when I'm not on my own laptop, I can just log-in and access all my stuff (I know I could just email things back and forth between myself or have a private entry on here, but I'm pretty horrid at keeping updated versions and this saves automatically so you don't have to keep re-sending yourself emails or re-editing journal entries). Because I try to not turn on my own laptop until I get all my studying done and out of the way, but sometimes inspiration strikes and I can use my parents' notebook to jot things down. So there's that. And it has tags too, and you can color-code stuff *nerdgasm*.

And it's been awesomely easier for me to keep track of mini_nanowrimo stuff and daily wordcounts because there's a built-in word counter!! yayyy!! and I don't have to have a million word documents of sh*t saved on this - when I'm basically running out of disk space, as it is.


And my anime self:

I tried to put this up on Tumblr where I got it from but the image preview thingy is wonky and the image ends up being a very teeny, tiny not-quite-like-the-others image. Bah. So here's the site.
