Signups for the Parallels Fic Exchange 2012 have started - although strictly speaking it will be a multimedia exchange. I'll offer fic though. :)

Details about the exchange can be found @ [ profile] parallelsfic. Signup announcment is here. And here you can look up what people have nominated.

Expect my Dear Writer letter soonish. :D I'm still trying to decide the details of my signup.

Ao3 hits meme

So [ profile] navaan encouraged me to do this although I have only a few stories up on the Archive. I still don’t have too many things up because I’m too lazy to go through my old fic :P, but that will make it interesting to see how this changes when I put up more.

1. Play (Tokyo Babylon, yuletide)
2. Distraction (Detective Conan, Fandom Stocking)
3. New Tomorrow (Arslan senki, Parallels)
4. Gut Instinct (Detective Conan, Girl saves Boy)
5. In Her Heart (Final Fantasy X, X-2)
6. Forward (Final Fantasy VII, Fandom stocking)
7. Counting On You (Hagaren, Fandom Stocking)
8. She'll never know (Final Fantasy VII)
9. More Than Meets The Eye (Arslan senki, Fandom Stocking)
10. Taking Care Of Him (Tokyo Babylon)

No surprises there really. ^^; Yuletide story is on top, followed by other gifts and the bigger fandoms and the few other things up there are just too obscure. *hehe*

Is it true there is (another) purge going on an What’s it about this time? I never used the site for uploading, but there are a few fandoms that have fic only on that one site. Are they trying to clean up their content again, or what?

For everyone interested in "yuletide rare" anime and manga fandoms this might be of interest:

Nominations for Parallels 2012 are open now. You can nominate five characters per fandom.

Last year I was lucky to get an awesome fic for Jiraishin - a fandom that has no fic outside this exchange I know of. :P

Anime/manga prompts

I’ve checked the Ao3 page yesterday and noticed that[ profile] ficstogo now has a community on livejournal and also changed some significant rules:
  • Anonymous prompting is now allowed
  • Everyone can make more than three request now (Yeah!)

I really have to finish the fics for the prompts I claimed and now this gives me extra motivation. :P There is also a spreadsheet with prompts available.

It’s still a very silent prompt meme, but the mod seems determined to make it work. So if you have an Ao3 account and want to leave prompts for any/all manga or anime fandoms, head over an do so!


2012 is here!

Happy New Year to everyone! Hope your start into 2012 was as great as mine. ^__^

I wish there were more fandoms with pairings at [ profile] fandom_stocking that inspired me. But my muse is a little non-compliant at the moment. I managed to finish a ficlet for a friend at least and there are one or to other things I might manage...

While thinking about what to write for my yuletide story I had two ideas where to go with it and I think I’ll write the second one down after I finished the ficlets. I’m in the mood to let Sei-chan do something gory behind Subaru’s back, although I have no idea if I can do that justice.

I had hoped to have the Saitô/Kenshin story for the Anime & Manga Fics to Go finshed by now, too. I’ll have to go back and redo part of it in order to do Saitô’s character justice. Maybe I’ll even go back and change the point of view... ^^; I'll take my time on that one until I'm satisfied.

Also my Wii has returned and I can start playing the new Zelda game. Yeah! Good start into the new year!

GW Fanfiction Exchange

I got up my [ profile] yuletide fanfic on time. Wuhu! Now I can think of other stuff again!

The sign-up for the Gundam Wing Fic exchange  on [ profile] gwficexchange starts in January. It has a comfortable period for writing (I wish more of these exchanges had...) Hope more people join the fun so I have more fic to read. :). I might consider joining up when the busy days in December are over and my muse tells me it's all right...

A bad cold has hit me right in the middle of a busy week and now this wasn’t much of a weekend either. I hope the cold won’t keep me from finishing my yuletide story. :(

Also I have a stocking of my very own over at [ profile] fandom_stocking if anyone feels inclined to leave me anything. :) I’ve already browsed the list to find things I can do.

But first yuletide... ^^;

Yuletide flailing has begun!

It’s going to be my first [ profile] yuletide, so the new nominations procedure is no change for me, but it is. of course, for all the regular participants. The nominations will take place on AO3 and a tutorial is up, although nominations haven’t started, yet.

I hope some people will nominate some more obscure anime fandoms and just participate! There is no better way to get your part of fandom included and recognized than participating.

There are post up to check wether your fandom is too big or someone is already nominating it (with characters), if you’re interested.

I’ve signed up for the “Girl saves Boy Ficathon” at [ profile] girlsavesboyfic.
I’m not sure which fandom I will go for. I’ve listed Detective Conan, Fullmetal Alchemist and Final Fantasy VII as probable fandoms and now I’m thinking about where possible stories could lead me. That’s always fun.

Someone has claimed one of my prompts at the “Fic to Go” meme at Ao3. I’m excited to see what comes of it. I wish more people would sign up, so I would find I prompt with a fandom/pairing I could wirte, too. ;(

I’ve still not gotten around to go through my stack of old stories and make them presentable for the Ao3. Everytime I think about it something more important comes along...

Dear Parallels writer!

Thank you for writing in one of these fandoms! That you are willing to do so makes me incredibly happy already, so don’t fret and don’t forget to have fun writing.

I like complicated characters, ambiguous relationships and uneasy romance.

I would rather not read radical AUs of the high school/werewolf/vampire/genderswitch/whatever variety. While I’ve read stories like that that were brilliant it’s just not to my personal taste on the whole. But you know, optional details are optional, of course.

Completely forgot to write about my Ao3 account- I’ve made one a while back for my uual Pseud Subaru-kun and you can find it here: faviconSubarukun.

I’ll put up come of the things that I used to archive at my homepage. (But don’t ask me when exactly I’m going to start with putting anything up. I’m lazy.) As the archive has the nice function of Orphaning I’ll probably think about putting everything up and orphan the works I’m no longer comfortable with. :P Old stuff is very old.


Personal pet peeve

Fake German always pulls me out of a story. I normally try to ignore it and go on reading. But having a Weiß kreuz story featuring Shuldig instead of Schuldig always stops me reading completely...

Getting started

I'm not really used to blogging and I'm not sure, yet, what will be put up on this journal. I guess I'll figure this out while using it. :)

Anyway. I have been away from online fanfiction fandom for a while, but never stoped lurking and reading and I felt it was time to get back to actually take part again.
I'm considering to put up my older stuff on A03 (maybe orphaning the fiction I'm not that confortable with anymore). And with all the interesting challanges and fanfiction communities on livejorunal and friends posting their stuff here, I thouhght that it was time to give it a try.

I think most of my things will be posted to A03 directly, but let's see how participation on lj turns out.
