This journal is no longer in use for writing. That's been scooted over to acerbically, just in case you were interested.

5:30 pm - (FFVII/other/AAANGST) Sleeping Sun


I -can- write non-pairing fanfiction!

... Reeeaally.

Okay, so it's angsty as hell, but it's still... not slash... ah, pfpfkobmjkl.

Title: Sleeping Sun
Fandom: FFVII Compilation: Before Before Crisis (Tseng is about... fourteen, fifteen or sixteen or so, I'd assume.)
Rating: I'd give this one a PG-13 just to be on the safe side.
Pairing: TsengxHis mom... kidding, kidding. None.
Word Count:
Commentary: Mmmm, annnngst. I spent too long on this. Beta, as always, is like sex but better...not that I'd know. Page one of my own self-beta two threeeee four.

11:17 pm - Drabbles. Yey.

Title: Noted on cuts
Fandom: FFVII Compilation... Respectively, sometime before FFVII but probably after Before Crisis, during Before Crisis though you see none of it, and way before Before Crisis. Schoolboy!Reno and Rude! I wanna draw this. X3
Ratings: PG-13/violence (implied);PG-13/profanity/abuse; R/but only for profanity.
Main Characters/pairings: Tseng; Elena; Reno and Rude, mild RenoxRude... so cute.
Word Count: 855 for all three
Commentary: I hate doing drabbles. But everyone needs to know how... The chattery girl in the second one may seem familiar if you're unlucky enough to be reading my NaNo.

'Traitor'Collapse ) (This is my least favourite.)

'.Memory'Collapse )

'School Bites' (not the shitty Amerimanga)Collapse ) (This one's my favourite)

Enjoy, if possible. Critique is always a good, good thing. Note the only beta these went through was spellcheck, so there are probably blips.

current mood: curious

7:32 pm - Veld/Tseng (draft one)


So not my fault.

This is the first rough draft. So yes, it sucks. It's still being worked on.

And no, it's not the one involving office supplies and a desk.

I'm still not posting that one.


Title: None currently
Fandom: FFVII Compilation; Before Crisis prime.
Rating: So very R (For implied kinkiness, (also implied) sex, profanity, and general creepiness.)
Pairing: VeldxTseng
Word Count: 650ish
Commentary: First draft. Uh, hot, off the presses, that is. Critique is as always appreciated. Dude, feverent is a word, right?! Word says it isn't; google however doesn't catch it as being a misspelled word...

I have plans big plans/I'm going to build you a house/Every stone will be a tear/And you'll never move out againCollapse )

Oh, and I got 25/25 on my Creative Writing project! But I think my teacher is a pushover. Damnit.

current mood: secretly, rather dirty

10:00 pm - When did my eyes become dead? (Caudatus)

Gah, I just got a nose-full of chili powder.

Wheee, I'm updating.

Boo, I'm the update consists only of slightly angsty yet rather important for future stories dialogue.

I do wonder what happened to the BC Turks, though. Seriously. They better have a convincing explanation. Or I'll choke a bitch. Or something. Anyway. I'm almost done with the story after this, which, hopefully, is better.

And I'm pimping the Gunshot Romance names, as is karose and a few others are for the BC Turks. Just because I can.

Title: Buried in Snow (after a FFVII song, yes. I'm so original.)
Fandom: Final Fantasy VII; after Advent Children.
Rating: PG-14 merely for reasons of profanity.
Pairing: None
Word Count and time taken: 1,031
Commentary: Beta is appreciated.

What is waiting for me tomorrow as I sing and live without meaning?/Alone in my room as my heartbeat screams--Collapse )

Note: Rosalind. And the others. Gunshot Romance, currently the Before Crisis site uses them to refer to the BC Turks as they have no default names. Rosalind is the blonde Elenalike one with the nice rack on the promotional poster. ... What? She does. 0_o; As for Elena's idolizing Rosalind as a child/teen... I thought, sure, why not? I usually hate it when people do totally unrealistic stuff to character's pasts, but it seemed to fit Elena's personality at least somewhat, and heh, she could have.

I'm going be be annoyed if on the other hand Rosalind turns out to be Elena's sister/mother/aunt four times removed on her brother's side and I have to come back and edit it. Ergh.

And, Elena in SOLDIER... I've never seen anyone probe this before. When I've poked around in that subject, I've had her be a SOLDIER specialist of some sort. She was something quite high-ranking at any rate, to have been promoted to the Turks, and probably beyond or in a different section from SOLDIER first class; it's totally unexplained in the game.

Anyway. Enjoy if possible. Throw squisie things/Writing instruction books if not.

3:47 pm - Had to be done.

If only I were better at graphic making. Mrrgh. Anyway. Yeah, colourbars are lame, but they're lame in the vein of Kanji tee-shirts... So lame they're cool.

I might have to redo this... I'm not really entirely happy with it.

EDIT: OH! And yes, you may direct link! I have no issues with it. :3
EDIT2: Yep, image is broken. Imageshack doesn't allow direct linking anymore, I guess. I don't seem to have a copy saved to disk, however. Please, please tell me someone does...?

Elena is thirty-seconds-of-screentime-including-her-ID-card love.

Hardest part of making it? Finding five different pictures of Elena. Gah.

8:58 pm - Here's a drama, there's a drama...

Redid RA's layout. Yes, it sucks ass. It's temporary, for one. For another, if you don't like it, you can make me a layout, hinthint. ;P

Anyhow, here's the second and third bits of Caudatus, the fourth (which was supposed to have been the third for reasons you will soon see) being done as well. :D I am a productive Myu for once. Yeah, the dialogue still sucks. I'm working on it. By the way, after these, they're all going to be shorts/character sketches. I should have done that in the first place, but anyway.

Title: Caudatus intro part two
Fandom: Final Fantasy VII; after Advent Children.
Rating: PG
Pairing: TsengxElena, and this one has a slightly... Ugh, comfort-ficcish feel to it in parts. I apologize, it won't happen again.
Word Count and time taken: 945; about half an hour, on and off.
Commentary: Mwrgh. Beta is appreciated.

ClickyCollapse )

Title: Caudatus intro part three
Fandom: Final Fantasy VII; after Advent Children.
Rating: PG
Pairing: TsengxElena
Word Count and time taken: 729 (shorter then I wanted, but no need to drag); about twenty minutes.
Commentary: Beta is appreciated as always. From here on it should get better... I'm much more decent at writing shorts, you know.

Yey sentence fragments.Collapse )

11:50 pm - (Fic. OMFG.)

Title: Caudatus part one
Fandom: Final Fantasy VII; after Advent Children, I'd say four or five months. Some minorminor spoilers, I suppose.
Rating: Technically an R, as it features the 'f' word repeatedly, but all things considered, it's just pg14.
Pairing: Eheh. TsengxElena, though not yet.
Word Count and time taken: 1,631; over an hour, sadly.
commentary: It's okay until you get to the dialogue. Damn it. I didn't mean for Shinra to be quite so misogynic, but you know... It kind of works. Anyway. All critique is very welcome.

Click me, bitch.Collapse )

Minisidenoteofdoom: Caudatus is from Amaranthus caudatus, a flower in a family of flowers that generically can be called 'amaranthine', and can also be called... 'Love-lies-bleeding'. I suck. Hard enough to leave a hickey. Damn.

PS: Reno-bashing unintentional. I love that bastard, but man... >;P
