I'm all caught up with Soul Eater (the manga)!

To celebrate (and also to take a break from the Soul Eater disability meta which is a mess), let's have a commentfic/art meme for my own amusement! Soul Eater Not! characters can play, too.

The Rules:
  • One prompt per comment.
  • Prompt format: Characters or pairings, prompt
  • Post fills (art or fic) as replies to the prompt. (You can post fills directly, or post links if its hosted somewhere else.)
  • Prompts and fills can be any rating.
  • Leave as many prompts as you like.
  • Fills can be any length/size (cue jokes about Black Star's bigness here)
  • If there's any questions, just ask.

I have to write about things in public before I write them especially when my mother is no help which is why I am horrible at anonymous fic exchanges.

Or: I am lost in the Soul Eater disability meta.

Spoilers for said meta, although they're rambly and may not make sense )

 I'm caught up with Soul Eater now. I should think of a way to celebrate

On the one hand, I should've expected this. On the other....Oo

On the other other hand....MARIE, YOU BADASS!

I haven't been writing fic for very long, but this has never happened to me before.

None of these people are real, BTW. Also, not all of them are people )
terajk: Ryoga, grabbing Ranma by his pajama-top and shouting: "Do you remember where my house is?!" (yesss!)
BLAIR, YOU BADASS!

(Blair is a cat who turns into a person.)

That isn't very shiny. Have something shiny, not made by me:

(Contains: blood, body horror, quick cuts)


(Lyrics)

ETA: BLAAAAAAAAAIRRRRRRRRRRRRR! You are the awesomest kitty ever. Although this is cracktaculous, I sort of want all the fic where Blair is a psychiatric service cat. (She hasn't done anything service-animaly, but now I think she totally could.) BLAAAAAIR-CHAAAAAN!

On the one hand, the Soul Eater meta is exciting! On the other, I don’t know if I’ve almost got a draft written or if I’m totally lost. Also, I’m really nervous about doing an in-depth analysis of a character I love with Not My Impairment--especially because some of the things I love about him remind me of a character who does have my impairment. And especially since there's a similar "that's horrible but also funny" tone involved, and I don't know if Soul Eater pulls it off as well as Ranma 1/2 does. For one thing, all the characters in Ranma 1/2 are treated like this--in Soul Eater, this tone is mostly reserved for him and his disability. (There are characters who are funny while they are horrible, like the Big Bad, but that's different.)

It also doesn’t help that a big chunk of my argument rests on something that's only revealed in the manga, and which I only know about secondhand. Namely (skip) that he is the godly personification of his disability. Obviously, I should take time off writing and read like hell.

Also, Soul Eater is weird. In a good way, but I can't help feeling like I'm misunderstanding the entire thing.
terajk: Text: WTF?! Azula, looking the part. (azula: wtf?!)
 (I'd call this a "trope" but I've only noticed it twice so far. I may not be looking in the right place.)

I've seen this thing in both Avatar: The Last Airbender and Soul Eater, where there are a) several disabled characters, b) themes about the importance of friendship and trust, and c) villains associated with paranoia, because they are Bad.

WTF?
terajk: Ryoga, grabbing Ranma by his pajama-top and shouting: "Do you remember where my house is?!" (the elder gods are snickering)
 On the one hand, the disability in Soul Eater meta is coming along. (It is scary and fun!)  At this point, I could call it: Why Death the Kid is an Effing Brilliant Subversion of Lovecraftian Mad Gods, with Pictures.

On the other hand, Lovecraft is an impenetrable bastard.

On the other hand (hey, it's Lovecraft), I can totally get books through interlibary loan. BOSS!

*I'd say "mental illness" (or, to use canon terminology, "madness,") but the body horror kind of became essential to the analysis. There is, in fact, an intersection between non-neurotypicality and body horror in at least two characters, as well as someone with an impairment that the fandom labels obsessive-compulsive disorder but which is called "the madness of law" in-universe. (And actually, one of his cognitive Blue Screens of Death is to spit up blood and pass out, which fits into the body horror as well.)

ETA: Oh, goodness, I signed up for analyses of disability in both Avatar: The Last Airbender and Soul Eater. This isn't as disastrous as it looks;  the AtLA meta shouldn't be too hard to put together. If there's anyone who'd like to beta either one or discuss either with me while I'm writing, that would be awesome.

In a move that should surprise no one, I wrote this:

Adventure(s)! (1011 words) by faviconterajk
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Avatar: The Last Airbender
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Azula/Toph Bei Fong
Characters: Toph Bei Fong, Azula (Avatar)
Summary:

In which Toph has a(nother) life-changing field trip with a member of the Fire Nation royal family.


This was supposed to be the Epic (for Me) Story of How Azula and Toph Found Ursa. No, really. It was supposed to be 6,000 words. But it ended up being 3,000 words of Feelings and fistfights, because I don't even know how to find my own mother at the grocery store. And then I tried to have them find a MacGuffin Ursa's guqin, which was somehow in the Bei Fongs' possession so they had to rob Toph's own parents. (One of the things [personal profile] lizbee asked for was Azula as the Blue Spirit.) But then that was stupid: why wouldn't Toph's parents just give it to her?

Because I feel bad, here is something that got cut (mention of canon violence):

I also wrote treats! Treats are fun, as 1,000 words is kind of epic for me.

Endgame (100 words) by faviconterajk

Warning: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Azula/Mai (Avatar)
Characters: Mai (Avatar), Azula (Avatar)
Summary:

The silences are Mai's favorite part of the game.



I love Mai, and her relationship with Azula fascinates me. However, Mai is also hard for me to write. (In the series, both Mai and Ty Lee have facial expressions that I tend to miss). I also love drabbles, especially for things I'm not confident writing. (If it's terrible, at least it's over soon.) I wasn't sure about this one, since [personal profile] pleonasm asked specifically for no cuckolding, and I...wasn't sure if this came across as cuckolding. In my head, Zuko's okay with it (local Gaang are all various shades of poly, just because it's more fun that way, and also, Katara can be with Mai and Toph at the same time), but wouldn't have understood that they were flirting.

Summary:

All major political events go like this.


Fellow fleet shipper [personal profile] glass_icarus asked for OTGaang last year. I finally had an idea this year. I wasn't sure if it had enough cuddles or too much perving. But it was fun!


This was for [community profile] fan_flashworks, which I'm also counting for Heroes Arrive Last:

Renovations (comic, Soul Eater, Marie Mjolnir & Death the Kid)

On the one hand, I'm very proud of this drawing, because I've never drawn an Anime Shock Face before, even with a model. But on the other hand....I've never drawn an Anime Shock Face before. I also learn something new with every drawing. This one's lesson was: 'Tis better to draw the white lines in Kid's hair in the coloring phase than in the sketching phase, you goofus."

Speaking of which, there was supposed to be a panel where they were like, "We're a god and a demon hammer. LET'S FIRE THIS DAY FOREVER AND HAVE TEA," but by that point I hated Kid's hair and vowed never to draw it again. *facepalm.*

 I'm surprised and horrified at how popular the fic/art I'm least confident about is.

[personal profile] moragmacpherson is hosting a self-cest commentfic meme! And I was all ready to prompt Soul Eater folks/anybody FUNimation dub crossovers (Maka Albarn/Tohru Honda! Death the Kid/dammit which Hitachiin was he?)  but then I read this

If the face doesn’t match, the character must be the same.

and now I'm sad,

ETA: I WAS WRONG! I asked the host of the meme, and characters with the same voice actor ARE welcome: just put a "(same voice)" in the prompt! My bad! *off to think of a prompt for Mousse/Light Yagami*

because INTERNET (and by "internet," I mean [personal profile] glass_icarus and[personal profile] inkstone )! While I was looking through Todd Haberkorn's filmography to see which Hitachiin he was (it was Hikaru, which I'd thought) I found this:

Shikabane hime aka (TV series) 
Ena

Oh. My. Two supernatural creatures with different alignments (possibly only for now) and overlapping obsessions? HOW DID I NOT SEE THIS BEFORE?

To cheer myself up, I prompted Black Star/Black Star; I would prompt Excalibur/Excalibur, but I don't think the universe could take it. (The thought of writing Excalibur's POV fills me with dread, personally.)

--I've met Marie, and she is fabulous! LOOK HOW FABULOUS SHE IS!

Marie, lost )

--Death the Kid's favorite number is 8, because it divides evenly and is perfectly symmetrical. And guess how many main students are at Shibusen right now?:

I did this as an ordered list, even! Also, spoilers )

Eee! Bestill my polyshipping heart!

terajk: Akane kissing P-chan on the snout. (shining norm of maleness)
In preparation for my birthday party the fest for characters with navigational impairments, I watched some Soul Eater yesterday, and it is fabulous.

I haven't met Marie yet, but...certainly I won't fall in love with just any character who's disabled and does awesome things?

Oh, wait: pictures! )

Not only is he an awesome PWD, but LOOK AT THE POLYAMORY POTENTIAL. (Those pistols? Are also ladies.)

ETA: Tangentially related: there are Hatsuharu/Momiji prompts in Porn Battle!!!!! I really need to get over my fear of writing (terrible) porn.
