[I cribbed this straight out of my last Yuletide letter, and this basically exists to give you a little more information about my general likes and dislikes in case you like to have that sort of thing for an exchange, otherwise, feel free to ignore. ^_^]

First and foremost I'd like to offer up a huge "Thank You!!" to you for writing a story for me. I know how difficult it can be to put any part of your creative process into the hands of another individual, so I will treat that trust with the care and respect it deserves by trying not to be too greedy or selfish in my requests.

Dear Yuletide Author,

First and foremost I'd like to offer up a huge "Thank You!!" to you for writing a story for me. I know how difficult it can be to put any part of your creative process into the hands of another individual, so I will treat that trust with the care and respect it deserves by trying not to be too greedy or selfish in my requests.

Specific Requests (in no particular order):

You are free to utilize any prompt I toss out there or none of them. If reading what I like about the characters/worlds sparks a fic idea in your head, feel free to ignore the prompts and run with it. ^_^

Also, length of babble in no way indicates my fandom preferences. It’s just that I’ve been requesting some of these longer than others and that’s given me time to try to streamline things down. I promise I’m equally excited about the possibility of all six of these requests. ^_^

1. Cal Leandros -- Rob Thurman -- Robin Goodfellow (Cal Leandros), Ishiah (Cal Leandros), Caliban Leandros )

2. Doctrine of Labyrinths -- Sarah Monette -- Mehitabel Parr, Enid Lemeria, Stephen Teverius )

3. Island City (1994) -- Greg 23, Connie Sealle, Andy Sealle )

4. Jeremiah (TV) -- Markus Alexander, Jeremiah (Jeremiah), Erin (Jeremiah), Theo Coleridge )

5. Power Rangers Dino Thunder -- Conner McKnight, Derrick (Power Rangers), Eric McKnight )

*deep breath* And I think that's it. Like I said, if any of the details I provided don't work for you, feel free to toss them out the window and write what's most comfortable for you. If you are happy and excited about what you're writing, I'm sure I will love it. Passion comes across and I do not in any way want to dampen yours. ^_^ I certainly won't object if you want to accommodate me in my far-too-verbose additional requests, but as stated many times -- totally not a requirement. ^_^ Go with your gut. The fact that you're writing something for me is plenty enough to have me thrilled and excited and bouncing for joy. ^_^

Thank you, again, and HAPPY YULETIDE! :D
A grateful recipient

Last year I got caught unawares by sign-ups, so I wrote as much of this ahead of time as I could in the hopes of organizing my thoughts better. Belated apologies to whoever read through the sprawling mess that was my letter last year. O_o;;; I think I've done better this year, but there's still a lot of babble. Sorry about that!

And without any further ado…

So... apparently I don't have enough on my plate with all the WIPs I'm currently in the middle of writing/editing.

I signed up for PR Trope Bingo.

Bingo card under the cut. )

...at least there's no deadline? -.-;;;

And, BTW... IT'S 65 DEGREES AND I'M IN A SUMMER DRESS! XD

Soooooooooooooooo happy.

I'm constantly amazed when I'm full to bursting after eating an amount of food that I used to consider an appropriate size for an appetizer for a much larger meal. In the good way, of course. I guess it's true that as you start eating less your stomach shrinks and you want to eat less. *chuckles*

Tonight's realization?

At Ruby Tuesday's, I used to be able to eat a full plate at the salad bar, mozzarella sticks, the crabcake dinner (crabcake, mashed potatoes, broccoli), go back for dessert at the salad bar... and go home and look for more to eat. Tonight I went to Ruby Tuesday's, had my crabcake dinner (and only my crabcake dinner), turned down the new garlic cheese biscuits (Ruby Tuesday's answer to Red Lobster's cheddar bay biscuits, I think)... and almost couldn't finish my dinner because I was full by 2/3 of the way through. I finished it anyway -- because dude... delicious -- but still... I was really full and half regretted that I did it. And you have no idea how shocked I was about it.

Because, dude. That's just weird. When did I become that girl?

In other news... been reading a lot of Power Rangers Dino Thunder fanfiction. Which reminds me... I never finished that one I started writing.

Damn it. I sense another round of fic ADD coming on. O_o;;; Shoot.
rchan: (MMPR -- Petite brunette and cute)
So, I'm sitting in Calculus today and about 5 minutes into class I hear a familiar sound. What is it? The "beep-beep bee-beep beep beep" of the Power Rangers communicator alert. Thinking I'd certainly imagined it I picked my head up and looked around. Surprise, surprise... I heard it again. Then this kind of cute boy across the room fumbles with his pocket, pulls out his phone and turns it off. I caught his eye and gave him a beaming grin. He blushed and looked down. After class, I tapped his elbow as he walked past and told him he had an awesome ring tone. He ducked his head again, said thanks and walked past me. *laughs* College kids are so adorable! I just keep wanting to pat their heads. ^_^

And now I want to write PR fics. O_O Damn it. I have two Hair fics in progress! I am not starting the sequel to ARBAON. I am not.

*ponder* Maybe a side story...

*slaps hand* No!

O_O;;;

ARBAON

Apr. 11th, 2010 10:08 pm
rchan: (Hair -- Claude -- Yippee!!)
*cheers* *throws confetti* Woohoo!! All 89 pages are now read and edited. *beams*

Final word count? 56,556

*chuckles* I like the symmetry of that number... ^_^

@_@;;; I'm such a math geek.

*cracks knuckles* All right, folks -- off to break this baby into chapters, write a summary, and start HTMLing the bloody thing.

PR fic

Apr. 10th, 2010 11:58 pm
rchan: (more_tea -- sleepyslug)
37 pages down, 52 more to go. O_o;;; Tired now, must sleep.
rchan: (MMPR -- Operation "This is Gonna Hurt")
OK, since my Hair fic seems to need a little more time to figure out where it wants to go next, I thought I'd step away from it to do something completely different. With no beta available and finally feeling that I've been away from it long enough to be able to tackle the edits, I'm taking on the arduous task of going through ARBAON. And you know what? It's a good thing it's me doing it. Going through the first 10 pages has started to feel like doing an OB chapter rewrite. O_O My writing style has apparently changed dramatically in the last 10 years. Who knew? ^_^

So, 10 pages in, and I've already added over 1500 words to the damned thing. Not that it's bad -- it isn't. It's just that parts of it read like an outline that's just asking for more detail. So, I've been obliging it. ^_^ By the time I'm done with the damned thing it'll probably be over 60,000 words. O_O Oh well, by the time I get into the more recent parts of the fic, there should be less that needs fixing. Mostly it's just a style match-up issue. I need to make the beginning of the fic read like the end of the fic or the transition will be too jarring -- especially as it'll probably happen over a chapter break. :-P

*coughs* Anyway, hopefully there are still people out there interested in reading the damned thing. I've sure made you wait long enough for it. ^_^

*waves* Later!

Week 22

rchan: (Gravi -- determined -- sunrise.aoaki.net)
So, I just realized that it's been a while since I did a weight loss update. So, here goes. *sigh* While my body seems to be readjusting itself to fit into smaller and smaller clothing (size 14 jeans and fairly consistently in size L -- and one or two size M!! -- shirts), my weight loss itself has been fluctuating like a mad bitch. O_O Up 0.6 one week... then again the next week. Then down 1.4... then back up another 1.2, then down 1.6. It's driving me absolutely batty, let me tell you. *sweatdrop* At least most of the "bad" weeks I could figure out what I did wrong. And since this week now marks the second loss in a row, TMI below the cut ) hopefully I'm back on track now. ^_^

For the record, because the total still impresses me... 31.8 lbs. gone. Hopefully never to return. *beams* Thankyouverymuch. *mutters* Now if I don't screw it all up between next week's trip to Delaware and the Passover seder after that... I'll be immensely impressed. @_@

In other news? Very sad that the original new cast of Hair is officially gone. *sobs* I wish them all the best in London, I really do... but I can't afford to go there to see them. ;_; This makes me sad. As a result, I may take a bit of a break before starting the next Hair fic and do something totally different, like... work on OB. I think I've put off tackling that damned fourth chapter long enough, don't you? O_O

Oh, and for those of you who don't read my ff.net page (who could blame you? O_o;;;), I'm going to send the general plea out here, too. "A Rose by Any Other Name," the sequel to "Forget Me Not," is done. But I'm so sick of looking at the damned thing that I can't even begin to beta it myself... and having been written over a span of 10-11 years, it desperately needs a beta to check for continuity. And since my beloved beta for my PR fics is very deeply immersed in her own life at the moment and I really don't want to harass her... that means I need to find someone else to do it. If you're willing, or know someone who is, please e-mail me or leave a comment and let me know. Thanks! ^_^
rchan: (Gravi -- phwee? -- sunrise.aoaki.net)
Oh dear Lord, it's finally happened. I've started a Power Rangers Dino Thunder slash fic. O_O I have only two things to say:

1) How the hell did Ethan end up my narrator? I mean, not that I don't like the guy, but really... he's my least favorite of all the lead characters in the series. *sweatdrop*

2) I'm sorry, Conner!!!! ;_; O_O

Still pondering if I can make this fit into the FMN universe or not. It's a pretty complete fic in and of itself, but... I like the FMN universe. O_o;;; Must ponder some more. *nodnod*

*wanders off to gorge on more PRDT for writing inspiration* Damned White Thunder Part 3 episode... this is all your fault!

Anyone want a snippet? -.-;;; )

Eh-heh... Right... Moving on, now!
rchan: (PoT -- Seme -- DigikDesigns_Trowicia)
Tee-hee. ^_^ Now that ARBAON is packaged off to the beta and I can't do another thing with it until I get it back (which won't be for a while), I have turned to other projects. Two scenes, and nearly 2000 words, into Chapter 3 (which is actually the last 1/3 of the original chapter 2 + chapter 3) and I realized something rather funny. So far, I have kept nothing of this original section. O_o;;; In the first two chapters, there were parts I rewrote completely, parts I left alone completely, and parts that I mixed old and new... but I don't think there were any spots that I had completely scrapped 2 1/2 pages and rewritten them. *laughs* Then again... of all the parts of OB I had written before, this entire section (the first trip to Taiitsukun's) was one that I liked the least. One might even say I hated it. It was not good writing, it was very choppy and I didn't take the time I should have to try to fix it. Hopefully this will come out better. ^_^

*waves* Ja ne!

((Actual word count to be posted when I'm actually done working for the night.))

Eiji: You know... I don't know whether to be grateful or insulted that rewatching PoT is making her fic for FY. Didn't she owe us a sequel?

Oishi: Well, Eiji, whether she did or not... I think the answer is that you should be grateful. I hear that Nuriko's already started therapy again.

Fuji: *nodnod* It really is pathetic. I almost feel bad for the man. He was walking around earlier mumbling in disbelief, "Miaka is a yaoi fangirl? Not that it doesn't make things easier, but really... What the hell? Where was that written in the manga?" I was torn between giggling at him and pinching his cheeks for being so cute.

Eiji: *sweatdrop* Perhaps we should introduce her to Emi and Noriko?

Oishi: *blush*

Inui: *eg* Ii data...

Oishi: And where the hell did you come from?

Eiji: *impishly* Perhaps from the icon one entry down?

Fuji: *sagely* Inui is everywhere...
rchan: (PoT -- Inui -- 100% success -- lelola)
Well, turns out I was actually right. ^_^ Almost exactly 10 years after starting the sequel to Forget Me Not and Taking Root, it is finished. *falls over* I have finished my own re-read and edit and shipped it off to the beta-reader ((Thanks again, Kristi!!)). Once her edits are done, I'll start posting it... though realistically, she may be the only one interested. ^_^

And the final word count on ARBAON is (at least until I get the edits back)... 54,833, making it officially the longest fic I have ever written and certainly the longest one I've ever finished.

And on another note... just in time for my first day back at work tomorrow, Long Island is expecting a blizzard. O_o;;; Someone's clearly got it out for me...

Anyway, going to through throw ((how you know you're tired -- when you can no longer tell the difference between "through" and "throw" O_O;;;)) myself back into gorging on Prince of Tennis episodes on youtube. *waves* Ja mata ne!
rchan: (Suiko -- Flik puppy dog eyes -- aoaki_ne)
*dies* OMG. OMG, OMG, OMG. O_O O_O O_O I think I'm done. Holy, G-d, I think I'm done. *hyperventilates* Sweet G-d in Heaven, I think I'm done!!!!! *cries* *laughs* *cries some more*

Today's word count: 3,532
Total word count: 54,782

What's it been now? 10 years? 11, maybe? OK, sure, I copped out. I've taken this fic through to the mutual discovery by Andros and Astronema that they are, in fact, siblings... and no further. Originally it was supposed to finish out the series... but I don't think I can do it in one fic. Keeping the thread of continuity going this far was hard enough. I think I need to end this one where it is and then tackle the next one with a fresh perspective to tie up all the loose ends.

*pleading look* Kristi~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ If I promise this is the end, would you be willing to beta for me? *wobble eyes*

I would offer a final sniplet in temptation, but waaaaah...! -.-;;; I just can't pick one out of the most recent chunk. @_@;;; Could I tempt you anyway? ^_^
rchan: (YnM -- Hisoka_Subaru -- sunrise.aoaki.ne)
OK... so it's been over a month since I last posted a word count. In my own defense, this was the first time that I've had access to my ficcage and been able to sit up for more than 2 minutes without pain since almost three weeks ago. :-P Also, I think that once I get out of this sitting position, the pain will make itself known. That, however, is not the point! The point is that I was at my apartment long enough to get a fic or two onto a flash drive, I stole my mother's laptop, and I was able to sit up to use it! So, I ficced. ^_^ *cheers*

And now the word count...

Today's word count: 1,090
Total word count: 51,250

Yeah, I realize that's a little pathetic, but consider the pain it cost me to do it! And the fact that until today, I was completely stuck at the part where I had left myself! Bet it sounds more impressive now, huh? ^_~ Thought so. ^_^

Anway, I now leave you a sniplet until I have the ability to write you more fic. ^_^ Enjoy! )

I just love Ecliptor... don't you? ^_^
rchan: (Melusine -- Done lost count)
Why can I not ever find a job that doesn't suck in some major way? :-P

*sigh*

Well, on a lighter note, I got a writing itch for the first time in a while this morning, so I opened up ARBAON and got to cracking. ^_^

New word counts!

Today's word count: 1,481
Total word count: 50,160

Word #50,000 is... "want". *shrugs* Random trivia. The point of which, is...

*cheers* *throws confetti* I broke 50,000!! *beams* Does it count for NaNo if I started working on it like... 8 years ago? *sheepish grin* I guess not, huh?

Anyway, here's hoping for 50,000 more!

Zhane: *splutters* She's going to drag this out for another 50,000 words?????

Andros: *hangs head* Oh dear G-d, I hope not.
rchan: (Danny Phantom -- pantless again?)
It's because they're not supposed to be there, isn't it? *sigh*

Had a productive morning -- did some dishes, put away some laundry, baked some cupcakes (one of our techs is turning 25 today ^_^). Trying to get the place ready before going to see my friend Jenny this weekend -- it'll leave me less to do when I get back and have to get packed for the trip to Kansas three days later. O_o;;;

But, in the meantime, all that domestic activity gave me a writing itch, so... a new word count. ^_^

Today's word count: 1,066
Total word count: 48,679

...and a snippet. )

^_^
rchan: (YnM -- little lamb -- sunrise.aoaki.net)
PRiS -- A Rose By Any Other Name

OK... so it wasn't all as bad as I thought it was. Not even close, actually. I think I've finally tuned back in to this thing, so... away we go! ^_^

Today's word count: 2,793
Total word count: 47,613

*ponder* Maybe it's all the anime I've been watching lately. Marathoned all of Trigun and Yami no Matsuei in one week. Yes, yes, I know that's a weird combination. Sue me. ^_~

Good Yontif, everyone!
rchan: (PRiS -- facepalm)
Oh good lord, am I dragging with trying to get back into working on ARBAON. I keep trying to write scenes, getting partway into them and realizing that the scene has virtually no purpose except for me trying to show that I haven't forgotten a character. And a comment on FF.net that someone left me has been niggling around in the back of my brain. They commented that Billy being the Platinum Ranger kind of popped out of nowhere. So, I re-read it, and you know... it did. *grumps* So now, every time I try to introduce a new twist on the plot, I keep asking myself, "Did I foreshadow this enough or at all? Did I need to? Can I go back and add it in without ruining the flow of the plot? Good lord, I don't want it to seem like I'm thwacking people in the head with it... but I don't want it coming out of nowhere, either! Raaaaawgh!!" *headdesk*

Stupid constructive criticism that was actually constructive. *grumblegrumble* Now I need to figure out what to do with it...

Bleh.

Today's word count (even though I may scrap it all tomorrow): 994
Total word count: 44,820

And now a sniplet... just 'cuz I can. )
rchan: (PRiS -- surrounded by idiots)
And finally getting back into the swing of things, though feeling like the writing is a little choppy. :-P Meh. This sucker's getting so long and has so many damned characters that story-flow is starting to be an issue. Even with a working outline it's starting to get a bit cumbersome. *sigh* Ah well. Just keep trucking, right? ^_^

Today's word count: 1,456
Total word count: 43,826

And yes -- this is ARBAON. Icon didn't give it away? ^_~

And... bleh. Nothing snippet-worthy in the new bit. *sigh* Maybe tomorrow.
