Actually, Semi!friends only. Fics, fanmixes and several other 'fandom associated things are left unlocked.

Anyways, a few nice points:

-I got the last of my Christmas shopping done, more or less. I mean I may still have one or two things from the Steam sale, but that'd just be for online people. I had gotten the majority of it done around February, but I was having a hell of a time getting things for my grandma, dad and mom.

BTW, this is a good time to opt in for wintery gifts! I used to try and get everyone done. If we talk a lot, I probably already had you on there. Obviously Carrie, Dove (books) and Sarajaye are already on my list, though if anyone else wants to exchange things, go for it. (I tried to get Samu something on Steam once, and there wasn't anything I could find that he didn't already have! Would you just prefer some f/f?)

-Good thing I cleared out so much room on my bookcase, considering I bought quite a few books. And most of these, save the Hayes and Grimsley, which are LGBT, will be kept.

The total haul:

and the aforementioned "how to write a romance novel." I think I generally have a good handle on writing romance, but I've been running into structural issues when trying to do novel sized work, so I was hoping to find something to help me figure out what I keep tripping up on. In fact, the only Howdunit series I don't order is one which seems to
just be a retread of the earlier works, so I skipped it.
I got outbid on all the video games I tried to get (Zero Time Dilemma, Azran Legacy) so I just decided to be a responsible adult(tm) and buy more research books instead.

I wanted to go hard for two weeks, but it looks like I'm just going to get one. Annoying. Oh well, I guess I'll have to split my 14 in 14 into two weeks, or up it to 14 in 7.

I will probably be very scarce for a while. I have two big deadlines coming up fic wise.

Open calls for publishing thread. Hey, Radicarian, Blacktreacle sounds like it could be a good place to start with that last horror piece you just finished.

List the first paragraph of your last ten stories, and see if you find any patterns.

Fic: Set Up

Aug. 9th, 2016 03:28 am
bonnefois: ghost_factory @ LJ (Default)
Title: Set Up.
Series: 999 (Zero Escape)
Character/pairing: Akane, Sigma
Rating: PG-13
Word count: 1153
Author's note: Kiu22 really didn't like the ending of ZTD, and we bartered an art trade for fix-it fic. Also like, late birthday stuff?

I refuse to believe that Sigma got old and boring and cling steadfastly to the OTP of Sigma/being awful forever.

Title: Retry
Series: 999 (Zero Escape)
Character/pairing: Akane, Sigma
Rating: PG-13
Word count: 715
Author's note: Kiu22 really didn't like the ending of ZTD, and we bartered an art trade for fix-it fic. Technically, this only touches at ZTD, and is much like the Akane coda in VLR.

HC_Bingo: Apocalypse.

Title: Head Over Heels
Series: Fire Emblem: Awakening
Character/Pairing: Henry/Sumia
Word count: 1174
Rating: PG
Summary: Sumia breaks something priceless, but dark magic can fix even the most dire situations.
Author's note: [community profile] hc_bingo: Falling. I had a Sumia moment, leading to this.... for [personal profile] sarajayechan as I realized I owed her fic from a ways back.

(Samuraiter's portrayal of Sumia apparently affected me more than I thought, haha)

Today is the day I officially pulled [personal profile] rosage​ into S-U, and maybe Ta/ngled and watching Unde.rtale LP if they can remember?? (Do it for the fish lesbian and lizard bi, em) Rather than watch from the beginning, I showed them The Answer, A Story For Steven, We Need To Talk, Warp Tour, and Mr. Greg. They wanted to see more Periot (which I def approve of) but the arc was so long, I suggested after Warp Tour they went on their own. And I’m going with them to the Art fair tomorrow.

We did not have as good luck as @hopperbot​ had with Pokem0n G0.

“We’ll go through this hell together. Don’t worry, I’ve got your back.”

(The hell is the fandom)
