Summary: Cis wasn't exactly malfunctioning when she got away from Rotwang, at least not in the way he thought she was.

A treat for notboldly50295, who asked for Cis having feelings pre-demise; I basically wrote it around canon, and was surprised at how little stretching it really took.

Characters: Locke Cole, Edgar Roni Figaro
Summary: Locke helps create Gerad, but for his part, he has a bit of a complicated relationship with hope.

A treat for deadcellredux, set during the WoR timeskip, in which I narrowly avoided unconsciously plagiarizing a place name from the Gentleman Bastards books.  Though I'm not sure I really escape the charge by changing one letter.

(and not just because I went an entire year without setting foot in Oklahoma)

I just.  FICS.  Omg!  What did I do to deserve so much awesome?  There's even a Madness treat waiting for me!  Tomorrow or the next day?  I don't remember how things work anymore!  It's nearly three in the morning!  Usually I can brain at this hour but not right now!

liri: Greatfather Winter (Winter Veil)
So, Yuletide.

I meant to post this the day of reveals, but thanks to (minor) head injuries and the fact I was visiting friends, I got delayed.  I only have the one fic - I meant to write treats but the time kind of got away from me - and because my initial reaction was not "oh AWESOME" I didn't dare to post anything about my prompt, or my feelings on writing it, until I was (a) satisfied with it and ready for it to be seen, and (b) had seen my recipient's reaction.

Detail about the fic itself )

Despite my anxiety starting out (I roped in [personal profile] quicksilver_ink as a beta before I even started writing) writing it was a great experience, and I'm really glad I had the chance to do so. I really hope the reveal that this was by a non-shipper didn't privately ruin it for her.

So here are the fic recs/commentary/etc.

Mine! )
Man, I don't know what I'm going to do next year, when T&B will almost certainly not qualify, and FFVI might not.

Tiger & Bunny recs )
Other anime/manga/gaming: FFVI, Antique Bakery, Madoka Magica, World of Warcraft )
Other: Fairytale of New York and Connie Willis's Oxford Time Travel-verse )

I'm not very good at writing recs, I don't think, and I should probably add the caveat that I haven't read every single thing in every fandom represented - WoW had multiple Thassarian/Koltira fics I haven't touched, for instance - but these were all amazing. 
liri: Celes Chere (Celes Chere)
I've been futzing around with icons, as a small, not-too-time-consuming thing I can do while working on the Thesis-Like Project. Now the Thesis-Like Project is... perhaps not done, but out of my hands (and OMG I'M DONE WRITING, at least for now) so I decided to go ahead and make an icon post before I decide they're all terrible.

So. 16 FF6, all Terra, Celes, or Terra/Celes. 22 Madoka Magica, mostly Homura and Sayaka, a few Kyoko/Sayaka, a handful of Charlotte/Mami, one Homura/Madoka and one group shot.

38 icons behind the cut. )
liri: An orc cookie attacks gnome cookies (cookies!)
I am actually signed up for Yuletide!  Regrettably, I don't think I'll finish FF4 DS in time to edit my signups... I suppose I could just throw FF4 in there anyway, on faith that I *will* be able to finish it before stories are due, but I dunno.  At the rate I'm progressing, I'm not sure it's safe to assume that I can.  

Cut for a bit of a rant about the Sealed Cave, and general thoughts on the game. )

Anyway.  It's kind of neat to look at the Yuletide signups, if also puzzling - wth, other people want to write fanfic about a Vocaloid song?  Really?  I'm also surprised so many people are offering to write FF6 fic, so far.  T&B is, unsurprisingly, the most popular of the ones I'm concerned with, both in offers and requests.  Suiko III is weirdly kind of low, so far - weird because going by the number of nominated characters, at least three people nominated it, which is more than have requested or offered it.  Madoka Magica only looked to have one request. 

After spending some time kvetching about the good old Pit on f_fa, I decided, for reasons even I cannot fathom, to upload some fics over there again, and browse the areas where I was uploading.  And... for some reason, the Pit's T&B section is basically just a porn-free version of AO3's T&B section, and I proceeded to get reviews that contained complete sentences and urged me to continue the fic I was planning to continue!  I like the T&B section now!  The less said about the MadoMagi section the better, though.

Adulthood.  Sometimes it means you get to eat cake for breakfast, and other times it means you have to fish a dead rat out of the pool. 

Sleep apnea stuff )

Also, I'm freezing.  I think this is linked to the sleepiness, though it could be linked to the fact that we are having, by California standards, a chilly day.  It's even raining!  My mother-in-law is probably wearing a parka indoors. 

I'm trying to keep myself awake by playing FF4 on the DS, which is kind of an odd experience, because it's exactly like the original - same dungeon designs, very likely the same script in Japanese - while also being completely remade and re-translated.  The dungeons are the same, but they're 3D; the lines are the same, but they don't sound like Google Translate anymore.  (Though "spoony bard" was, of course, preserved.)

Edit: WTF Yang's blond now?  Seriously? 
liri: (Terra)
Well, Merc, you were wondering about what would happen if a trans kid was offered a contract in PMMM; here's some fic for you!  Momiji may not strictly be trans - he takes to wearing male clothes later, hence, I think, the pronoun in the story itself - but it has some similarities to what you were thinking of.

More Pixiv bounty (mostly FF6) and cross-Pacific fandom musings... Cut for length. )
liri: Karina's brain is broken (brain broken)
I spent a lot of time on Pixiv today for some reason.  Behold what the internets have given me:

Kyubey as Kefka.

A match made in flamboyant, heavily-made-up heaven. Thank you, Dissidia, for enabling a whole new universe of crack pairings.

For some reason, a Spice & Wolf/FFX crossover. I don't even know. Voice actress link or something?

FF characters cosplaying as Vocaloids.

To continue the theme, Aria di Mezzo Carattere sung by a Vocaloid (Meiko, in this case.) She doesn't sound like an opera singer, but Celes shouldn't, either. 

All of this (except for the Youtube link, which I've had for a while) began just because I went looking for this image, my current wallpaper, to make sure I bookmarked the link. Instead I realized I could navigate bookmarking on Pixiv pretty easily and went on a bit of a rampage.  I'll probably post the less brain-breaky fruits of my search tomorrow.
