I'm auctioning off fic for Hurricane Sandy Aid if anyone would be interested! right over here, I'm offering 100 words of fic per dollar donated with no upper limit, any of my usual fandoms but you can ask after any of the bajillion other fandoms I've written. If you want something featuring the same characters or pairings as whatever you've already seen me write chances are the answer would be yes. If you want the POV of a chipper young girl that's a pretty likely yes too, goodness knows I can babble on in a Yuffie or Rikku-style voice all day long with glee if given the chance.

Is there a nicer feeling than going back to skim over an old fic you wrote after enough time's gone by that you've gained some distance and instead of picking up all the flaws you end up really getting into it like it was a story by someone else that you find yourself liking?

Parts that I remember felt like they moved too slowly when I was writing it but thought were too important to the set-up to get rid of actually seem to clip along at a decent pace now, and once or twice I've even found myself thinking, 'Hey, that was pretty cleverly phrased.' It's such an awesome feeling to read something I wrote but that feels like I've just encountered it for the first time and honestly like it.

I know it's not exactly unusual for me to write stories with some weird-ass pairings, but every so often I do manage to make myself go "Jesus Christ, what is my brain???"

(This instance brought to you by the fact that I'm currently 3000 words into what's shaping up to be probably something like 15k+ worth of older Maggie Simpson/Sideshow Bob fic set over a span of fifteen years. Which was just supposed to be a little ficlet exploring how Maggie got into the music career that made her the voice of her generation in last season's Christmas episode that I decided to write on a whim, and which was supposed to have a one-scene gag where Bob was the first one to recognize just how talented she was when their paths crossed during another of his plans to get revenge on Bart. Then plot started happening in my brain. It's gonna end up filling my blades/guns kink bingo square; there's a lot of focus both on their weapons and on how he's the only person Maggie feels free to let the gun-nut side of her personality loose around 'cause who would believe him about it?)

Man, it's still way early to even be thinking about next Yuletide, but I hope I'll remember to nominate Kung Fu Love for it. Every time I remember it exists I feel sorry that they never got to make an actual show out of it. The animation's so bright and pretty, and there's so much story hinted at in the ten minutes we do get that we never get to see!

(Basic plot as far as it can be made out from what they have enough time to show: world peace is achieved by choosing a scapegoat who will take the blame for everything bad that happens. Everything, doesn't matter if its terrorist attacks or annoying flocks of birds showing up. Instead of countries going to war against each other, the entire world is set to war against that one person, so they might get attacked at any moment wherever they are.)

(The person chosen is a high school girl who finds the idea of playing the damsel-in-distress who must protected by the man she loves who is her only ally terribly romantic. Too bad her boyfriend quickly reaches his limit and walks out on her, leaving her with only herself to rely on. If you check out the video and the main character's personality annoys you, trying jumping forward to about six minutes in where there's suddenly a timeskip and the short basically becomes a music video of her being an incredible badass!)

Jesus, we're coming up on the two year anniversary of my mom's death and now my grandma's in the hospital. What a time for it.

(It's nothing huge, she had a heart irregularity they checked her in for, only to work out that the problem is she majorly overuses her inhaler which makes her heart race. The problem is that she treats the thing like it's anxiety medication of something; she gets stressed, she breathes heavier, she takes a puff off her inhaler because breathing more heavily makes her think she's having trouble breathing. And she's a worrywort, so she gets anxious often.

But man is this leaving everyone stressed out.)

I... have a pretty ridiculous number of fandoms you can pick from, you can just skim down my ff.net account or AO3 account to see if one catches your eye.

Ick, a bit of dirt got caught under my contact today and scratched my eye, and in one of those bizarre ways that different parts of your body can interact with each other my eye being hurt has made my nose run like a faucet. It's seriously more annoying to me than my hurt eye.
