Hey, this is mostly for those of us not doing NANOWRIMO this year (like me!).

THE CHOCOBO RACES THEME THIS MONTH IS SMALL FANDOMS. And for the ITTY BITTY FANDOMS (hey kids, this includes Vagrant Story) GO HERE AND LEAVE A PROMPT AT LEAST. Teams get points for prompts (as well as fills... which are megapoints)! If you're not already on a team, I ask that you please leave stuff for Team Tonberry, as they are the underdogs right now (I'm on Cactuar, just saying). Your prompts may not get filled (I mean, I left a Final Fantasy Unlimited prompt, I know this will not get filled as the only people I know that have seen that anime are ones that I made watch it as I ah, kind of own it). Or you could fill all the FFIV prompts I left in the October post mwhahahaha.

Also, after seeing this wonderful group of old lady poets do readings on Saturday, I've been writing poetry again. They'll show up on my ficjournal, so if you're watching it I apologize now. It's been a long time since I've been in the mood for poetry, so yeah.

Trying to finish my [community profile] megaflare_ff story, which refuses to gel properly. But I will write it, dammit, it's only supposed to be 5000 words and it's about SHERA. Originally it had Reeve too, but I changed that to Tifa, because she just fit better into the framing story. Sorry Reeve.

My main problem has been time. I have none. Perhaps over the holidays? I'd LOVE to get the next chapter of The Edge of Glory finished. :/

Oh and I have started some Tai Chi, and it is great and thank you for any suggestions you left for me. I will probably start up yoga later, as I am RIDICULOUSLY out of shape and it will take a while to get my joints and muscles to behave (don't let my being thin fool you, I get winded on stairs sometimes, ok?).

Also goals this weekend:

- Major progress on either Breath of Fire III or Metal Gear Solid, depending on which I get stuck on first.

- Sew something! I am in the mood to make a jacket (perhaps my Snake from 999 one?) or a skirt/jumper. I have the fabric for a skirt or jumper, and no fabric for the jacket, so the latter seems more likely.

- Cook some squash soup! I have a nice collection of squashes now (I love how long they keep), and a nice variety of curry spices and stuff.

IN WHICH ROSA IS A DARK KNIGHT AND ALL IS NOT RIGHT IN BARON. CHECK IT OUT.

At nearly 5000 words for the first chapter this is looking to be the longest thing I have written in a while. This kind of scares me and I am glad that I am not taking a class this semester in addition to working. I'm glad that I've had little tiny pockets of time to write lately, even.

And in writing this, I am feeling warm and fuzzy feelings for one of my favorite tropes growing up (no matter how cheesily written) which is the LADY KNIGHT. So I want to celebrate.

LET'S HAVE A LADY KNIGHT-A-THON*.

Fanfic! Originals! WHATEVER. I want it to happen! Who wants in?

*Not that dudes aren't awesome too. ^^

Fanfic

So I'm working on stuff again, mostly because I have to work on a grant this week and nothing makes me want to write fanfic more than having to write stuff that bores me. XD Here's what was poked at yesterday.

these are mostly Final Fantasy, because that is mostly what I write )

I wrote Whatever Happened in the Meantime, and FFVII story which focuses on Reeve and Shera and has an appendix for the timeline. At about 5000 words it's the longest fic I've written for an exchange ever. It is also what has got me thinking about writing an epic Shera story. XD

My gift was Free, a FFX-2 postgame story in which Yuna meets adorable kidlet fans and is generally awesome.

Other ones that I have very much enjoyed reading:

His Chapter, FFX, Auron/Braska. Really heartbreaking.

A Silent Aeon FFVI, MADELINE FOCUSED. Very sad but great!

Acts of Release FFIV, or Cecil and Rosa do bondage. Explicit. Awesome.

Trading Post FFVII, super adorbs main party fic that is a lot of things I love about FFVII.

Negotiations FFVIII, in which Seifer talks Quistis into BDSM. Explicit, as well.

And great art:

Scions of Darkness FFXII, Fran and Penelo espers. Just gorgeous.

The first TEN people to comment in this post get to request a drabble of any pairing/character of their choosing from me. In return, they have to post this in their journal, regardless of their ability level. If you absolutely can't write, I don't see why you wouldn't be able to offer drawings or icons or something instead.
Except you don't HAVE to post this. Because I'm nice like that.
