Usual block problem: I do not know what words come next. Every time I try to add words, they're wrong, and that makes all the other words look wrong.

THIS STORY NO LONGER TASTES GOOD. I almost want to give up on it. (I won't give it up, of course, but it's still making me really mad.)

Also at this point I'm basically biding my time until I go pick up Miss Cookie. She's coming to live with me~

I'm on chapter five of seven outlined, and I am getting closer and closer to wordcount. The "doll" has been introduced, and so have Kore and The Book. Took a break for a few days, then sat down and pounded out 1,400 words in one sitting. I'm going to shoot for more.

Thank bog I have a few days off so I can work on this baby. (I am, possibly hilariously, staring at chapter five going "What now?")

In other news, started writing a CM casefic in the moments I can spare from G&T. Setting it in my hometown, basically because I can and because it's the only place I know well enough to set a murder mystery in. Working title is "Tell Her That I'll Never Roam," and if you ever see me bitching about "the Glenn Miller fic" or "the Chattanooga Choo Choo fic," this is the one I'm talking about.

It's going to be set in a timeline of three fics exploring exactly why JJ took the stalker case in "The Crossing" so personally. (And, frankly, "She's pregnant!" did not explain it to me.) I have no idea if exactly what happened (and when, and why, and how persistent the emotional reaction is) will come out in "Tell Her That I'll Never Roam," but it's possible. I'm leaning toward "won't," however, or "won't be stated to other characters (though the observant ones may suss it out)".

And for RK, I've also started looking harder at "Untold Oceans," which will never be posted and is even squickier and more fucked up than "Hard Times," in fits and starts. There's actually not a water motif running throughout this one (unlike, oh, every other fic I've ever written). Title's a variant on "10,000 Oceans."

"Catch Me" is being quiet. Which is probably a good thing, considering how my brain wants to make absolutely everything (including G&T, though I'm resisting mightily) into a squickfest. I'm writing/plotting enough squicky things in the RK fandom right now. Don't need to go adding to the list.

You know that fic that I thought was going to be a romcom and wanted to be pseudo-literary? I HAVE THE ANSWER~

And the answer is bookends. That is all.

Dear too and almost,


That is all.

So [personal profile] cheloya introduced me to What The Fuck Should I Make For, and the first thing it gave me?

"How about some fucking

Coffee-Braised Beef with Cinnamon and Orange"

This thing is clearly god.


I guess I should start putting together my notebook for "Gifts and Treasures," since that's going to be my Mega Flare fic.

So I got an email from somebody who's been in the FFVII/YxV fandom for a while asking me if I wanted to read his fic, which would be based on "Chinese/Korean folkore" (which... what? I'm no expert on either China or Korea, but I'm 99.99% sure they're culturally distinct enough that smushing their folklore together with a slash is not appropriate).

When I respond that I don't have time to beta or test read somebody else's fanfiction, he replies that he wasn't emailing me to ask me to beta/test read. He was just asking if I wanted to read it.

What? Can somebody please explain this logic to me? I do not grok this "let me email somebody I've never spoken to before ever and ask them if they wanted to read my fanfic" idea. If I wanted to read your fanfic, I would be reading your fanfic, especially since you're an unavoidable name in a comparitively small corner of a shared fandom.

In general, I don't get very sentimental. Sentimentality is for people who are not me.

But every time the opening notes of Uematsu Nobuo - Opening ~ Bombing Mission (also known as the FFVII opening theme) start to play, I get swamped in nostalgia and my eyes start to water.

The very first time I ever watched my (pirated, pre-release) sub of Advent Children, I bawled at the very first scene.

But fuck it. I'm going to say this publically, cross-postedly, whatever.

Dear mod of [community profile] ff7_drabbles,

I'd just like to know, what in the ever-loving fuck were you thinking? Assuming your challenge participants are morons is one thing. Implying that not knowing the fucking canon and still writing for the series is okay? A totally different thing.

No love,

[personal profile] nagia

Wow, I think this is the first time I've ever left a drabble community out of anger at the mod.

Title: Costa Del Sol
Summary: Yuffie and Vincent just don't stop arguing. It's a damn miracle he hasn't transformed in the field, yet... or is it? (Early Materials AU)
Notes: I said I'd wait to write it until I got more done on Catch Me, and I've gotten some stuff done on Catch me, so it was time.
Wordcount: ~550

Awake at terrible awful no-good hours once more. In lieu of anything better to do, time to do the "ten genres" meme. Ten words One line, roughly, A sentence or two for ten genres.
