Remember the time I spent, like, 12 hours pondering the character depth of a doll that kills people?

Questions can be along the lines of "What were you thinking when you wrote this?" or along the lines of "What happened to these characters five years later?" or if you don't want to ask a question you can just quote a few lines from something I've written and I'll comment on them.

(A lot of things I've written are here.)
terajk: Franken Stein from Soul Eater, smiling adorably. (stein: hee!)
The one that's almost ready to be a story is the one with Ash Williams.

ASH. WILLIAMS.

And not the Ash Williams from Mass Effect, either.

(Also, Cheryl showed up. *facepalm*)

And did I mention fills for [community profile] gen_battle have to be rated Teen at most?

Although, if any fictional person is going to realistically have my cynicism about therapists it is ASH FUCKING WILLIAMS. Even if it gets folded into his general blowhardiness.

Tell me about stories you think I should write. I mean, if you could sit me down for a day or whatever and say, "Ok, I want you to write this story for me," what would that story be?

I'm not actually promising to *write* any of these, mind you, but it's fun anyway. And who knows if I'll be inspired!

 Self, the reason you are able to write fanfic and finish it (to the extent that you are able to write fanfic) is not because you associate it with a school-like assignment.  It's probably because you:
  • are now an adult and can do things you couldn't do as a kid
  • are writing in settings where you and the audience already know the characters and story
  • can write 100-1000 words of dialogue/character study/nothing resembling a plot and get away with it (which probably means the Toph-Azula thing is out of your zone of proximal development for now, and that's ok).
In other words, you are doing this for fun! HAVE FUCKING FUN!

(Other things I've learned: If you spend the week going to a kids' movie every day, you end up with a kids' illness. It was totally worth it, though XD).

Pick a character I've written and I will give and explain the top five ideas/concepts/etc I keep in mind while writing that character that I believe are essential to accurately depicting them.

This one sounds like a TON of fun. XD

Go, me!

The [community profile] femslash12 fic is 654 words long so far! I think I'll celebrate by some combination of:

1) cleaning the house

2) buying paper towels

3) going to the coffee shop to write some more, or

4) going to the comic book store.
terajk: Charlotte the dessert witch, falling. (charlotte: whee)
 We're getting more and more moved into our new house! Although one day my mom had to work and I had no  cable or video games, so I watched lots of Revolutionary Girl Utena as I put books away. This was an excellent use of my time and I have lots of Feelings, which I can only express as "WOAH." I, um, think Anthy is kind of my favorite?

Hey, wait! Here's something I can sort of put into words!

spoilers! )

Have a Tumblr meme!:

Give me a fandom, character or pairing and I will write you a drabble! (Utena prompts are indeed welcome!)
terajk: Ryoga, grabbing Ranma by his pajama-top and shouting: "Do you remember where my house is?!" (Default)
 1) Give me a pairing.

2) Give me an AU setting.

3) I will write you a three-sentence fic.

Pick any passage of 500 words or less from any fic I’ve written, and comment to this post with that selection. I will then give you the equivalent of a DVD commentary on that snippet: what I was thinking when I wrote it, why I wrote it in the first place, what’s going on in the character’s heads, why I chose certain words, what this moment means in the context of the rest of the fic, lots of awful puns, and anything else that you’d expect to find on a DVD commentary track.

Meme, stolen from [personal profile] recessional:

If I made Cinderella, the audience would immediately be looking for a body in the coach.

When I write a story, what do you immediately look for?

(Something under 1500 words!--ba-dum-ting!)

 So I'm working on my [community profile] not_primetime  fic and I've run into a problem, which is: I heartily dislike epithets in writing, but everyone is the same gender and it's awkward using names all the time. (And the first draft isn't even finished; but my brain is all: "If we fix this now, it'll be easier to work on later as it will suck less.")

I'm sure the answer is "Compromise on your hatred of epithets, you goofus," but I'm not ready to call total amnesty on it. *ponders*

1. Go to page 77 (or 7)  1 of your current ms. (I write short things and want to play, okay?)
2. Go to line 7
3. Copy down the next 7 lines – sentences or paragraphs – and post them as they’re written.
4. Encourage other people to do it!



Today he sees Kuno carrying a Hello Kitty balloon, a giant Hello Kitty on his back.
 
Perfect.
 
“ ‘Sup, Kuno-senpai?” Ranma clomps his heels together, points his toes.
 
“Saotome, will you please *get off my head*?”
 
“Sure thing.” He does a back-flip, pushing off with all his weight.
 
*”Ow,* you blackguard!” Kuno stands and brushes himself off.  “I don’t have time for your foolishness. And if you got your footprints all over my pigtailed goddess’s presents, I will *gut* you, you hear me?”
 
“Uh-huh. Likes this crap, does she?” He scratches his cheek with a finger; Kuno doesn’t notice. “No accountin’ for taste, I guess.”

Go, me!

1. I have now seen the first two episodes of Korra! KORRRRAAAAA I ♥ YOU! 

2. So, I should REALLYget over my fear of Professor Stein finish the Disability in Soul Eater series for [community profile] month_of_meta, not least of all because I would like to write some bonus!meta about Black★Star. After all, he (skip) possesses the Madness of Power

Some of the block for me is that a lot of disabled characters in the cast are portrayed just as, well, members of the cast! So I feel like I'd be saying the same things over and over again. Oddly, maybe writing about Stein in conjunction with Marie (who actually breaks EVERYTHING) will make it less scary. Another possibility is to start "backwards"-for-me and look for pictures/manga panels first, a la a picspam.

No poll this time, but if you'd like to offer encouragement/ drabbles/ pictures / ♥/ KORRRRRAAAA, please do :D

Thanks to [personal profile] sholio, I'm doing [community profile] 10tropes! I suspect much Soul Eater, Avatar: The Last Airbender and Ranma 1/2 fic will be written. (There is Soul Eater fic already.)

Here are my tropes. (All links go to TV Tropes.)
  1. Crack Fic

  3. Go Karting with Bowser (I was all pumped to do Asura and Shinigami-sama for this, but sadly, they break the trope by being bastards...I mean, gods.)
  4. Heterosexual Life Partners
  5. Odd Friendship
  6. Screw the Rules, I Have Money!
  7. Slumber Party
  8. True Companions
  9. Wunza Plot
  10. Zany Scheme

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 )

[community profile] white_lotus assignment is handed in! Whee!

To celebrate, I'm working on one of my [community profile] ot3_promptfest Ranma fics. And now I have WRITE KUNO'S DIALOGUE. Dammit!
terajk: Akane kissing P-chan on the snout. (shining norm of maleness)
Stolen from [personal profile] othercat:

Comment with one of my fics and I will do a DVD commentary involving writing process and the like.


My fic can be found here.
