So, Yuletide is long over with. I'd like to talk about the stories I wrote.

Just Another Break:

I actually wanted to write this because I was happy to find someone else who wanted MSLN for Yuletide. Not only that, but I wrote A Warm Place a year ago, and i wanted to keep my little MSLN Yuletide treat tradition going.

All I wanted was fluff and romance for this. Pure, unadulterated fluff and romance. The request was for the working environment. I thought, okay, I can use the TSAB. But I coming up with a mission for MSLN is a little difficult. So I thought, yes, Fate comes home from a mission and fluff ensues! And so, I came up with the idea of the cafe. At first I wasn't sure how to connect that to anything interesting... but Nanoha wanting Fate to come for a Couple's Day came to mind after writing the original draft. It felt bland and then... bam. I said, "I can fit that in! It's perfect!" I thought about the the reason of what makes this day special for Nanoha and Fate to come to this particular cafe on this particular day. Why would Nanoha care, and how can it be extra sweeter? Well, I found my answer!

Did I mention this took me about six hours to write? That's honestly a record for me. I had to do the Christmas dinner thing with the family, and i even posted it an hour before Madness ended. I even told my family. They seemed surprised I wrote a story for someone else...? I don't know why. Well, I could have posted it a little after. I just wanted to be on time! And I edited just a little after Madness opened, but it couldn't be helped.

Learning How to Smile:

I'm not really sure how this one turned out so long, but it did. The supernatural element actually wasn't supposed to happen. I had a few other ideas that would make the scene a little more realistic (like the ghost was a dog—I know, it sounds strange, and that's what I worried about). But the more I thought about it, the more changing the ghost seemed to be a lie to the audience.

I remember when we talked about that in my previous writing class; if you give the reader something from the start, you should continue with it so they're not confused or turned off. I promised the ghost from the start and I needed to continue with it or give an incredibly good reason that it didn't exist. I probably could have delved more into who the ghost is, and now that I'm done I see how I could have done that too, but the story was about Nozomi and Nico finding some common semblance with each other. I tried to do that with their separate loneliness/sadness similarities.

Where Your Heart Belongs:

This story was difficult. I agonized about it, honestly. Not because I didn't want to do write after I plucked it out of the pinch hit list, but the ideas floating around in my head weren't coming as coherently as I wanted them to. I kept thinking of long-winded plots I neither had the time to do, and I worried about how coherent they'd be if I even tried. So Where Your Heart Belongs was born after I wondered: What makes a linear storyline?

I tried to think of the places in the Tokyo Babylon timeline that might have needed just a little more explaining. Because the end has such a wealth of possibilities, I said okay, we're doing that. But then, how? I thought, "Seishirou is always not with Subaru when he wakes up from the cataconic state in fics. I wanted to know what would happen if Seishirou was there with him, and I wanted to explore the theme of touch. Smut was kind of an option, but I wasn't too smitten to write it at the time, and I didn't think I had to for a compelling story. I just wanted to see the influence touch would have on Subaru waking up back to Seishirou.

It was interesting to write Seishirou in a more possessive light, too. I normally don't do that. I could get used to it, though. Seeing Seishirou not wanting to give Subaru back his family was quite comfy to write.

Since I think one person followed me after I posted chapter one of Dancing Through Starry Skies and is probably waiting for an update on that… .

I think the second chapter will have to wait until sometime in December. Like I said, most of the story is written. But I’ve realized, looking back over the story itself with fresh eyes after a few months worth of time, there are bits and parts that I can add to make this story even better than what it is. I don’t think the OC parts will cause the problems, but Misty’s involvement is, and I want her to get equal treatment in this story. It is half about her! I want Zelda to read the best story possible I can dish out for her.

Besides that, I’m working on a Seishirou x Subaru (ish…?) NaNoWriMo at the moment. And that’s just not going to get done by itself, and I have lot of work to do on that before the end of the month. This is my second priority after school work (which is, as you know it, due before Thanksgiving Day, yay).

Don’t get too excited if someone actually wants to read it, though. As it looks now it looks awful and would need serious revision that wouldn’t happen until next year. My hands are tied with writing until then. Add onto that the CLAMP Secret Santa and Yuletide, goodbye free time! I’m happy to do all this!

But yeah, there’s an explanation if somebody wants an update on fic things.
I've signed up for NaNoWriMo after seeing two authors I admire entering. It was a last minute decision because... well, my writing for a while has been stagnant to an extent (and my classes...) But I thought, when am I going to do this thing if not now? Wait for another year and say the same thing? No, too wish-washy. After the fiction writing class I've realized my original characters creation needs help now and this is the best place to start worldbuilding for a novel I've said I'd get into. Jump in without preplanning and write. Probably 2,000 words a day, which leaves a few days for rest or thought between. Got my Yuletide assignment, too, and maybe plan on CLAMP Secret Santa on Tumblr. I have my plate full!
For this exchange I have requested Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun, Gochuumon wa Usagi Desu ka? | Is the Order a Rabbit?, K-On, Love Live! School Idol Project, Mahou Shoujo Lyrical Nanoha | Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha, and Tokyo Babylon.

Haven't been writing for the last week... But when I did, I did a whole lot. So I'm not as far behind as you'd think. Current goal: Finish DiSS before November 1st and I should be golden. That is my deadline before another looms near.

Nominations for Yuletide 2015 are underway. Last year was the start to this—as where I stand DiSS is halfway through with minor edits in the first half to complete—but it's great to be here at the start and have control of some things, like nominations for starters.

First, I'm struggling with what to nominate. Okay, so Love Live! is a given because I'm so obsessed and I feel like nominating Hanayo in one slot because currently it's seriously the month of Hanayo on EN and JP and— Okay, I'll breath now. This isn't the blog to gush about LLSIF, but two Hanayo events back to back are quite convincing. AO3 actually has a section listed for the game I never noticed before. I doubt it has much because people will run over to School Idol Project instead. Currently, I have Kotori, Niko, Honoka, and Rin ready to be put up in the spotlight.

Next, which isn't any surprise if you know me whatsoever, is my decision to do Tokyo Babylon justice by nominating it ocne again. Last year It apparently got four stories, so I'm betting money that somebody is sitting out there with it nominated already. I don't see it in the unofficial Yuletide Google Spreadsheet and it worries me... I'll try posting and see if anyone says anything, maybe, or I'll just do it for safety reasons.

Otherwise, I think Tsubasa's Seishirou, Subaru, Kamui, and Fuuma probably should be nominated. Because the TRC fic scene with the vampires is scarce and lacking in complete fics and I'm all kinds of TB/X trash for thinking this as one of my bigger noms when everybody else is probably focusing on other things. To be fair, I don't really know most of the fandoms I already see listed. So I'm going to have a small pool to work with here and I want what I'll have to be a good match for me.

Last but not least, I thought K-ON! for Yui and Azusa. But when I looked back through the archives there wasn't much of that and it worries me that it would have a match. Then why didn't I nominate Nanoha? Well, somebody else nominated it and I luckily got Einhart and Vivio put in for me. Which brought me to possibly nominating Railgun, but after talking to the same person about that, we're just now working on which characters will fit into it because their friend nominated it instead. Which, well, leaves me with this last nomination.

I have to search through my list and figure out something. I also should post about it on that community so other people can see. It worked with me and Nanoha, so why not. I was surprised to see somebody else likes it as much as I do, and you never know who else is lurking. I have a few days. So, I'll write home about what I decided when the time comes.
So now I have four people that want my Ash x Misty fic. Impressive.

I guess talking to Zelda actually helped me. The other day I once again ambushed her on Skype and told her the story was at 7,500 words. She said she was excited to read it. Good, good. That was an accomplishment brought about from a burst of energy. Over the weekend I wrote quite a bit, and today I filled in more gaps. I'm around 10,500. A little over.

I asked Elite what she thought of my long-windedness and she said I was crazy. Maybe I am crazy. This story was at least supposed to be 7,500 words, not whatever it is amounting to. I joked to Elite I'd make it about 20,000 words (I'd be surprised if I did hit that milestone).

The more I stare at this story, I don't think it's quite as big of a leap as I think it'll be in the end. To get to 20,000 words mark, that is. The story is a bit of a mess as I write and will eventually have to rewrite. But these things take time. My biggest problem is still what to do with Misty, but I'm starting to find a focus for her.

I also started a small SeiSub fic minutes prior to writing/posting this entry, so I hope I finish that soon. In fact, it's in the same document I'm writing this post in.
Still not much to say about this story. Okay, maybe there's something. Says the paragraphs below this sentence. But! Okay, I do have something to say. After a long slump, my motivation's been piqued. Zelda has been alerted once again to my burning passionate desire to write a story for her ship. I have begun to chop up the story a bit into a continuum!

What does that mean? Well, this story is planned to be a few chapters in length. I have broken my initial ideas and this will not be a one-shot in so many ways (in spirit, perhaps) but technically I want to edit this thing out into nicer bite sized chapters. Thus far, I've broken it up into four linear chapters. There—extremely slim chance, I don't want this to go on forever—five or six chapters. Depends how much more screentime is needed inbetween for certain characters.

The only problem is Misty. Most of this story is centered around Ash. It was always supposed to be, and it still will revolve around his awkward good-heartedness. But as the story's expanded a bit in the quantity I decided she needs a little more screentime to validate her feelings, so she'll have it.

Also, there's going to be OCs in this story. This was not meant to happen! When I finally started to rewrite, these OCs popped into my head and just made sense like a regular episode of Pokemon. Not to mention why I'm also looking up a little more information to make this story authetic to the city I'm using. I don't know how well-recieved they'll be recieved (and, no, they are not going to stand in Misty and Ash's way—this is a story purely about them) but they're going to guide the story a bit and give Ash his motivation.

Oh, also, back around Christmas I wanted to have this thing published on here without having a beta look at it. That's changing, because now that this story will be longer, and I have no time limit this time and the novelty of starting has weaned off a bit, I'm going to consult someone after I'm done with this story. That still might be a while. But! Now I know what should happen in the story from the beginning to end. I have four chapters with some events going on in each so far. That's a feather in my cap, I'd say.
We're going to talk about the Pokėmon Ash x Misty story I owe my friend Zelda. And I should have given it to her about five years ago, so we're talking deadfully overdue here Notes on that in the fic whenever it comes.

In fact, the part I'm going to talk about is currently posted underneath this post because I alrwady showed it to Zelda. But it's locked. I'll probably unlock it when the polished version is out. Maybe that'll be ome a tradition in the case sonebody is interested in seeing that. Kind of doubt it, though.

So, before Christmas I started writing it. I was sooo pumped becayse yes finally this thing was going to get done. A week before Christmas, I was sooo going to get it done! It was going great. I had the drive for it... and then I wrote Magic's Tom story on that week's Friday and sort of spent more or less the whole day on it. Then the Yuletide happened the day after that. That was Light the Way Home.

Though I did track Zelda down in February when I saw her online. And I thought, I wrote this thing in December and you're going to read it even though I can't finish it for some reason even though, you know, most of the last half is written. It's just extremely rough. I gave her the first half of the story like I said and she seemed to like it and think it was cute. However... I realized then I didn't like a part of the beginning description, and now I"m going to change it. Because I don't know how i could make such a grave mistake in the first place as what I put, especially because the error doesn't fit with what I'm imagining here at all.

Kind of pointless to mention, kind of not. Thought I had more to say about it, but I might just go over when I do the next reflection on it. It's sort of a bit on the editing process. Because I originally thought it was perfect the way it was and I didn't have to change anything. It was supposed to be shorter than what it's turning into it, really. This is how strange imagery is sometimes.
Title: Draco Rises
Fandom: Harry Potter
Rating: T
Character(s): Draco Malfoy, mentions of Voldemort and Ginny
Word Count: 2,437 words
Summary: Draco thinks about how the world has changed and meets Voldemort at his prime.
Notes: For a Draco x Ginny RP that went nowhere after this scene. Personally, I consider it a chapter of a story because it's so long with so much introspection. Set after Voldemort takes control of everything, including Hogwarts.

The shining period was at hand for those who had sought to glean power. Everything was beyond glorious. )
Title: All Girl Ouran?
Fandom: Ouran High School Host Club
Rating: PG
Character(s): OCs Shiomi and Maya, Nicholas mentioned and not mine
Word Count: 1,495 words
Summary: Maya and Shiomi talk. Shiomi tries to help Nicholas in trouble.
Notes: It's a shame I'll probably never use Shiomi again. I liked playing her. Shiomi is Tamaki and Haruhi's daughter. Maya is Kyoya's. Actually, I like Maya too but I just never had the chance to develop her properly. This was supposed to be for a host club with all of the original characters' daughters and one boy.

Shiomi's worry boiled over. Maya's words were drowned out by a switch that flipped in her brain to move and go save him. )
Reflection time on A Warm Place and Light the Way Home (or, Despair and Hope as the working title was before I axed it).

My regrets for this two are simple. I had to cut things for time. AWP would have been heartwarming with a lot more dialogue and hurt/comfort. That's how it goes in my head when I think of it. As I have said already LWH would have benefited from action scenes such as a Sayaka and Homura one. I regretted not adding it in, though my peaceful resolution may also have seemed probable.

Yes, expanded. I've never really seen Arf and Fate's landing on Earth before the first season explored. Not that there's that much more to state I eouldn't think, really—Precia brought them there and they fended for themselves. Yet I wonder.

LWH was written in less than two days, which was a newer challenge on my end. Rarely do I write so much at once. But I was proud of my 4,000 word marker. Most pinch hits written at the time are up to 3,000 words and seem to average 1-2,000. While "A Warn Place" instantly came to mind when the story was finished, Despair and Hope was a working title of the greatest height. No, I didn't like it much from the moment it popped into my head until I changed it. Based on the finish for LWH it sits better with me. Besides, I watched Rebellion raw and worried I had details wrong. I remedied that with wiki pages and summaries as soon the prompt was mine, especially Sayaka snd Nagisa's info.

AWP was written for the most part a week before Christmas when I posted it. Part of me was happy it was a treat; the other kept tweaking the word count in frustration because I was 20 words over the limit and kept consulting AO3. I managed to cut out the extra fat but not the ideas sprung up along the way.

Both of these stories are a bit interweaved because they were written for the same Yuletide, I think. Not to mention I tried to cram Tom's and Zelda's Pokeshipping fic (nearly done, nearly I say!) at once.

Will something come of these stories? Perhaps, in due time. I have the urge to continue. Maybe even multi chapter stories. But I don't see them being too long. Just sweet, cotton candy fluffy things with a light taste.
Just some RP intros that involve TB/X.

Title: New World
Fandom: X/1999
Rating: PG
Character(s): Subaru, Kamui mentioned
Word Count: 558 words
Summary: Subaru worries about Kamui.
Notes: Doesn't really go anywhere because it's an intro, but I think this came out well. For a Subaru x Kamui RP.

One of the most irritable bits of the entire situation boiled down to Subaru feeling misplaced. )

Title: A Visit
Fandom: Tokyo Babylon
Rating: PG
Character(s): Seishirou, Subaru mentioned
Word Count: 286 words
Summary: Seishirou visits Subaru.
Notes: Also goes nowhere. But this was for the first TB RP I had for Seishirou. Consequentially, it also stops at a doorway. Meant for SeiSub.

Subaru had seemed rather happy during their phone conversation.  )
Title: Light the Way Home
Fandom: Puella Magi Madoka Magica
Rating: PG
Character(s): Madoka, Sayaka, Nagisa, Mami, Homura
Word Count: 4,473 words
Summary: In Homura’s new universe Sayaka has watched Madoka for an entire year. Though her memories are skewed, one way or another she will bring Madoka to her senses.
Notes: Yuletide 2014 gift for aurons_fan on AO3. Post Rebellion movie. Was actually a pinch hit and I had less than two days to finish. That was new for me, but I did it! If I ever touch up on this story I would add an action scene because I was disappointed I didn't have time to include one.

Every single day Sayaka dreamed. )
