A list of things!

YOU GUYS I GOT SUCH AWESOME WEE THINGS FOR [community profile] eastasianfandomgiftbag it is not even funny. A while back [archiveofoourown.org profile] livrelibre wrote me this drabble (Spoilers for Ga-Rei: Zero):

Remembrance of Things Past (100 words) by faviconlivrelibre
Fandom: Ga-Rei: Zero
Rating: General Audiences
Warning: Author Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Relationships: Kagura/Yomi
Characters: Isayama Yomi, Tsuchimiya Kagura

It’s so lovely and breaks my heart in all the right ways, and also makes me want some Pocky.

And then [personal profile] qem_chibati wrote me a wee untitled Akane/Akari/Ranma/Ryoga ficlet that is just AWWWW and AHAHAHA and also perfect.

Have I told you how awesome I am? My mom dropped me off at Target to buy coffee while she went to mail letters. So I bought my coffee (and maybe some other things, like cookies), but then I remembered that there are TWO SETS OF DOORS, OH NOES!: one by the grocery section, and one by the electronics section. WHICH DOOR DO I GO TO? CRAP! But I thought this shit out, and decided that, since I was buying coffee (in the grocery section), the grocery section door is the one I should use. And I was right! Yay, me!

A lot of Awesome Things I do involve stuff like this. There are only so many times I can say: “And then I came out of Wendy’s and coudn’t remember the way home but it was OK because I had a 50% chance of being right. Even though I knew I saw the Blockbuster before I saw the Wendy’s on the way there, when I went towards the Blockbuster I didn’t recognize anything I saw, which I have a high tolerance for--as in, ‘Oh, I’ll recognize something eventually!’ But since I know I have a high tolerance for not recognizing where I am, I have this recursive anxiety where I’m afraid I’ll end up REALLY lost before I realize what the hell happened. Which is actually pretty hilarious.”

I...seem to want to commit write One Piece fic? Which is terrible, because I’m only 56 chapters in. IT IS BAD, y’all--I’m perusing the One Piece kink meme and I’m like: Nami/Sanji, foodplay? I could almost write that! (For reference, Sanji appeared just a few chapters ago, and had *one exchange* with Nami. And then Nami up and STOLE THEIR SHIP, which...ahahahaha, but also, she’s sort of disappeared). Because I am secretly twelve years old, the best moment ever was when Luffy had to work at this restaurant to pay off damages and his crew shows up to eat there, and Luffy is so pissed he puts a booger in Zoro’s drink and Zoro MAKES HIM DRINK IT.

Oh, hell, who am I kidding? The best part is whenever Nami sticks out her tongue.

I also want to READ One Piece fic, but, again, only 56 chapters in. There are so many people I haven’t met yet!

I thought writing Ranma 1/2 fic for this amazing prompt for [community profile] ot3_promptfest would be easier than the [community profile] white_lotus fic, but DAMN. I keep wanting to make Akane/(Akari)/Ranma/Ryoga the most self-indulgent ship ever, which means I keep wanting them to have the sort of relationship I would want this four-way queerplatonic romantic friendship-type thing (or something; I don’t know what to call it), where they all sleep non-euphemistically together and train and have adventures and snark and don’t identify as friends, but aren’t comfortable with any sort of sexual relationship definitions, either, and it’s kind of awkward feeling out what their relationship is.

I mean, Ranma and Akane have had other people dictate how their relationships should be: their parents arranged their engagement without their consent; Ranma’s dad engaged him to *someone else* earlier; Akane has to fight off all the boys in school every morning because Kuno said whoever beat her could date her. And Ryoga gets all kinds of Feelings just from holding hands. But the love dodecahedron is a huge part of the story! So I’m all: “Making their relationship asexual would BREAK EVERYTHING.” I mean, if I wanted an asexual threesome involving someone with a navigational impairment, Luffy/Nami/Zoro makes more canonical sense. But cf. I’ve only read 55 chapters and Zoro’s spent most of them asleep. Still, I think that’s just because I have this idea that the kinds of relationships that I want are wrong.

And then I have to make up Ryoga’s parents, eep! And if I’m not careful, his mother will become a superspy who also blows things up. (Local Shampoo already thinks she’s awesome.) I...may have extrapolated a lot of things from no evidence whatsoever. Like, that her first name is Ryoko1 but she writes it 魎呼 2 rather than 良子 because she is just that badass. (Why is she so badass? Because she sets booby traps in the house, of course!)

1. “Ryoga” means “good fang.” When Ranma posed as Ryoga’s sister, his fake name meant “good girl.”

2. This is the kanji with which Ryoko Hakubi from Tenchi Muyo! writes her name.

Something went wrong with the tags in this-- whatever you wrote it in converted straight quotes to smart quotes and rendered all the HTML un-parseable.

Eeee, I love reading your meta about writing Ranma stuff! (Luckily for me I know just enough canon to be able to parse it all) I love love love stuff about different kinds of relationships & figuring out boundaries & wanting things that don't have names, etc. etc.

Also, extrapolation is what awesome fic is all about. :D
