It appears my fic has been somewhat uncanonized by the release of xxxHOLiC chapter 180. Sorry 'bout that.

The rest of you (other than the wonderful and lovely [livejournal.com profile] eoedad, who was my beta) will have to wait a bit to read the fic, but it'll be soon enough, I suppose. :D It'll probably go with my huge fic dump.

Yuuko sets down her spoon and fork and says, “I was to have two traveling companions, servants of mine if you will. But one took ill quite suddenly and the other insisted on staying behind to care for him.” She smiles the mocking smile again and beckons the servant to refill her goblet (for the sixth time, and they’re only on the second course). She giggles, and even that is elegant. “They have a deep connection. It’s a shame that they couldn’t be here.”

“Your servants are married to each other, milady?” Morgana asks curiously.

“They are not,” Yuuko says, “Just connected by the red thread of destiny.”

Merlin goes white. Arthur has discovered that Merlin hates destiny. “Destiny,” he says.

Yuuko finishes her wine and the servant hops up to pour another glass without her even asking. She swirls the wine in the glass, looking down at it for a moment, and then she smiles, slow and dangerous in a way that makes Arthur a little afraid for his sanity. “Destiny,” she affirms, voice low and full of certainty. “It is a fabulous thing, isn’t it? But there is not just destiny; there is fate, too—how some things are certainly to be, and how some things are not, and you cannot change that.” Her smile grows. “In my country, we call it
hitsuzen.”

Merlin is looking at Arthur with a very certain Look on his face. When he catches Arthur’s eye, he mouths,
fuck fuck fuck fuck.

Arthur is suddenly inclined to agree.



Guys, it is Merlin/holic crossover because [livejournal.com profile] sapphirestar_ just happened to put a Merlin icon up when she replied to a comment of mine and we had this big discussion and she's finally forced me into actually thinking about what would happen when Yuuko and the Great Dragon meet and WHAT THE FUCK AM I DOING.

Someone stop me. PLEASE.

...or don't. I can't decide.

I WAS I AN EARTHQUAKE, GAIZ.

SERIOUSLY.

IT WAS THE MOST EXCITING 10 SECONDS OF MY LIFE.

Apparently it was a mag. 6.2, and now all of San Jose (including Alajuela and Heredia), is on red alert. And no one is allowed to go upstairs. And the study abroad office (which has better internet than the university) is closed. D:

BUT IT WAS AWESOME. SO SO SO SO SOOOOOOOOO AWESOME.

I was lying on my bed watching FMA eps that I'd downloaded a million years ago (read: they were like early first season XD) and suddenly the window started shaking and I thought it was a car or something but then everything began shaking and I was like "HOMG IT'S AN EARTHQUAKE AND I'M NOT GONNA SLEEP THROUGH IT OR MISS IT THIS TIME (I missed a minor one yesterday, sadface D:) !!!!!!111!!!!!!!1"

I was so excited. XD I was like Dane Cook when he realized he was gonna see a guy get hit by a car. That's how excited I was. XDDDDD

And it was great. I'm sure once you have experience it's not nearly as awesome, but I thought it was sooooooooooo cool. :D

I WAS IN AN EARTHQUAKE!!!!!!! *SQUEE*

...

Ahem.

Onto other things. Last night I saw Marley and Me, and it was fantastic. I've never seen Owen Wilson in a role that wasn't ridiculous humor/slapstick, but he was so good. And Jennifer Aniston was great and it was just awesome. :) Definitely go see it.

I love my new roommate way more than I liked my old one. I think we may actually keep in touch after we go home. She's way cool.

Class is good...yeah. That's about all I need to say about class. But no. It really is. It was exciting because Marley and Me was dubbed in spanish, but I understood almost all of it. There were just a few things that I didn't know the specifics of, but I'm gonna have Maman mail the book and I'm sure I'll watch it again in English when I get home.

But seriously, if you have a dog, if you love dogs (or pets in general), you have got to see this movie. It's great. :)

Um...yeah. For those of you who follow my fics, I'm probably gonna have a new part of barcode up today and a holic oneshot up this weekend. :) So that will be great.

HEY. GUYS. I WAS IN AN EARTHQUAKE!!!!

MEME: The first fifteen people to comment on this post get to request a drabble from you. In return, they have to post this meme in their journal. Post all fandoms you’re willing to write for.

Um. I'll write for:

Pellinor, Rurouni Kenshin, Candyland (XP), Samurai 7, Les Miserables, Spirited Away, Princess Mononoke, Gokusen, Lovely Complex. And possibly something else, but not any of CLAMP or PMK, because I simply cannot characterize ANY of those characters right, dammit!

I have an idea for NaNoWriMo!

It's the perfect idea for that sort of thing--there's a definite plot, but I will definitely need to make a rough outline (and as an author--I can't remember who--once said, the fun part about making outlines is not following them), and there's enough to keep me going for thirty days.

Yay!

My toe is still purple, but significantly less purple than yesterday. It still hurts, but I think it's improving. I was talking to one of the girls, and she was like, "Are you going to practice tonight?"

I said, "Of course I am! Why wouldn't I be?"

"Well," and here she laughed a little, "I would totally skip out. Like, you were crying yesterday."

And she sort of had a point, but it's like, it's a toe. It's this tiny little part of my body. I am not missing practice because my fucking toe hurts. That just seems really, really wimpy. Even if hurts really bad. XP

So I told her this, and she kind of agreed and kind of looked at me like I was nuts.

Maybe I am?

If you happen to be working on some creative writing project, fanfiction or NaNoWriMo or what have you, post one sentence (or more) from each of your current work(s) in progress in your journal. It should probably be your favorite or most intriguing sentence so far, but what you choose is entirely your discretion. Mention the title (and genre) if you like, but don't mention anything else -- this is merely to whet the general appetite for your forthcoming work(s).

This definitely isn't everything, but...it's something.

Rurouni Kenshin, Gokusen, Original )

Was cast as the part of Justina in the play. I'm pretty happy with it, even though I wanted Elisenda. The only problem I have with it is who is actually playing Elisenda--I'd pick almost ANYONE in drama over her, including several guys. She is SUCH a bitch. *sigh* But I'll deal with it. It's mostly set in stone anyway, so that's that.

nebulia: a nebula (katsushiro)
play audition tonight. It went okay, a little better than okay, I guess, but not perfectly. I was pretty happy though.

I really want to get a big part this year; I don't want to be either of the leads but I do want to be their mother. I actually have a chance, for once. XD Being a senior and all.

Callbacks are tomorrow, so I'm crossing my fingers.

In other news, I finally finished the oneshot! YES! So now, I'm editing, and then I'll post it here, and then I'll edit some more, and then it goes to FFN.

I deleted "One Taco Short of a Combination Plate" because it was a piece of crap. It was a TON of fun to write, but, like the Finding NemoRK crossover (In which Kenshin, a single dad, has a fight with his son, who then promptly gets kidnapped, and so to find him he teams up with an amnesiac shihandai who's been kicked out of her dojo, a bunch of nomad rebels (two with spiky hair), and a chain-smoking policeman and his two sidekicks who refuse to use a sword to save him), and the three thousand words of nothing but Kamatari and Misao talking, it doesn't deserve to be online.

It was fun, though.

Swimming was okay tonight, but yesterday it was BRUTAL. My thighs are unbleievably sore. *sigh* Moving, let alone walking, kicking, or getting out of the pool, is a huge effort. As soon as I post I'm going to a hot shower, which I may never come out of.

And yes, I ended a sentence with a preposition. I'm in too much pain to care.

that's right, I am on livejournal. at school.

last night I was attacked by a plotbunny that is turning into a rather long KK oneshot. I like it. I had the desire to write something other than a vignette in present tense, so I did. It was going to be switching point of view, Kenshin then Kaoru, but Kenshin decided to take over and I haven't done my homework since. XP

When I get in a writing kick like this I remember how awesome writing is, why I love it so much.

Out of procrastination, I reread last year's [livejournal.com profile] spook_me prompt and was startled.

Usually, when I reread stuff like that, I go, "Oh. My. God. What a load of crap."

And I reread this and I thought..."Hmmm, maybe this has potential."

It needs editing. A lot of editing. But...it actually could be something interesting.

I was rather surprised. I thought it was a load of crap when I finished it and now I'm not sure I do. So...I dunno, maybe it's not as bad as I thought it was.

IT just surprised me. I didn't read it for like a year because I thought it was so awful it would embarrass me, and I really wasn't embarrassed at all.

I just need to buck up and face my work, that's all. It's not like Frankenstein's monster; it's not going to turn on me.

Yet.

XD

And then when school starts I get bombarded with fic ideas.

Grrr.

Or, worse, little scenes with very, very vague plot around them that I think would be interesting but I have no clue what the plot is.

And I have AP Chem to do.

Rg. School's okay, I guess. I've only got seven classes instead of eight and that's actually kinda nice. Swimming last night was totally brutal, so I'm incredibly sore and instead of having an eighth hour, I got to take a nap. It was exceedingly pleasant. XD It's amazing what an extra 43 minutes can do to lengthen your day.

gothsocks and I have communication problems. I'm taking HLBF and Gymnast out to the lake this weekend, and possibly gothsocks too, so we can hang out. And then I babysit on Saturday, and then the godfamily's coming to the lake too.

Money, say hello to your new owner: the gas station. Choir retreat was last weekend. I had to drive to Newton--50 miles--on Friday, drive home for swim team on Saturday, drive back after practice, and drive home again on Sunday. Consequence: I was running on fumes when I pulled into the gas station today.

And it's 4 more 40-mile trips this weekend to the lake and back. After this, I'm totally broke. On the plus side, I'll probably get to work next weekend, so I might be able to get some money for real again. I still owe Maman for the con, too.

Oh, yeah. But gothsocks and I. And communication problems.

I chalk it up to 50% our mental instabilities, and 50% adolescent angst. And PMS. But more often than not, we seem to think the other one is angry at us, and so we feel bad and think because she's ignoring me, she wants me to ignore her. And vice versa. It's a vicious cycle, I tell you.

But we might have it sort of worked out. I really hope she can come out to the cabin, though I love HLBF and Gymnast. I just want gothsocks and I to be pals again.

HLBF invited me to go riding with her sometime, which was really exciting. I can't wait for that.

So, that's that.

And a long post that wasn't supposed to be that long. And I have to go do homework now.

Urk.

Please, please, please do [livejournal.com profile] spook_me! This is a Halloween spooky stories challenge. Signups start today, at the website, so please check it out! I did it last year and it was fun. XP

School started today...I already have a crapload of homework, so online may be GOOONE if I want to survive senior year. 169 days left, give or take a few. *agony*

I realized something recently. I like spending time with my dad. With Maman, we talk all the time, but with Dad, we don't talk as much, though we do talk. I like talking to Dad, for the most part. We think alike, and it's a lot of fun. Yesterday we went to lunch and then watched 300, which we both really enjoyed, despite the gratuitous sex scene in which Leonidas has a crapload of stamina. But we had a lot of fun. I love hanging out with Dad; I want to do it more often. On the plus side, he might come to Rome with the Latin trip, which would be great fun. I'm so excited for this year, despite the massive class attack. It will be a good year, I think.

They play, as I said I would talk about it, is A Very Old Man With Enormous Wings, based on the story by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. It's going to be really cool, I think. I'm excited for that, too.

Time trials are over. My goal this swim season is to lose weight. I am SOOOO fat.

Working on the next few chapters of Alpha and Omega= tiring.

Grr. I've been doing some hardcore Bakumatsu research, which is the easy part. The hard part is finding out what people in Edo might think/know about said Bakumatsu. And what I should make Koshijirou think.

The next chapter is finished, but very brief, and I'm not sure I like it. I know the next chapter will be short, but I'm considering scrapping it and starting anew.

If anyone can point me to some good books/sites about the effects of the Bakumatsu within Edo, or the rest of Japan (as in, what's not Kyoto), I would love you forever.

I never, ever want a desk job.

Ten dollars an hour for four days is all good and well, but any longer and I think I'd puke. I haven't had time to write or think or anything, and as much as I don't mind busy work, I WANT LESS OF IT, DAMMIT!

/angry

Okay. I mean, it's not so bad. All the ladies in accounting are really nice and Dad took me out to lunch today and Tuesday.

But grrr. It's ridiculous.

*sigh*

and my butt hurts.

So that's that. As soon as tomorrow's done it's back to work on scriptfrenzy and sending my imagine article in (it's done! My career as a freelance writer is taking off!) and then it's the weekend and I'm cooking for gothsocks.

So just eight mor ehours and a therapy appointment (I still need a name for the new therapist, too...hmm...)

So, a day without intrnet connection and I wrote smut. Decent, het, graphic, consensual smut. Original characters, exciting exciting.

Um...and the Futon of Doom and Hellfire which gave up centuries ago finally got kicked out of my room and is now rotting in the garage. Now I have Granny's old recliner--it's blue and thus doesn't match, but we'll get a nice black slipcover and I'll be happy. Granny's chair is really comfy, not to mention it was Granny's and we'll be saving money, too. :)

And I have math and an FRQ to write and I don't want to do either. :( Grr.

Yesterday was wonderful in that it was cold and snowy. Gothsocks came over and we had bunches of fun. We made cookies and watched Howl's Moving Castle and Avatar and it was a blast. Yay.

Today is cold and sunny and just as beautiful. I've been very productive today, too; I did laundry and picked up and snowblowed. It makes me feel good, productivity.

I'm still cutting, but I didn't on Wednesday. And only once on Thursday and Friday and today. This is a good thing, obviously.

erm...that's about it. I'm not feeling particularly eloquent about my daily life right now, though I do feel like writing. So off I go!

I can't believe it's March already. Wow.

Something B!YAD thought up today, which really entertained me. I think she's gonna write something about it, which is super-good--I love B!YAD's stuf, even though I've only read one of her poems and her crack!comics (yay Alec!).

Am presently reading Sophie's World, which is a great book about the history of philosophy. Author's last name is Gaarder; check it out. It's great if you like philosophy. I'm totally hooked.

Have recently become re-addicted to the song "Dirty Little Secret," by The all-American Rejects. At the moment, it's spurring a lot of inspiration for some Tomoe/Enishi fics, which is my RK "I'm a sick bastard" pairing. *grin* The scary part is that I'm practically inspired enough to go for it.

Well, we'll wait and see. I actually want to do homework tonight, so you know, I may actually be productive. I do have a math test tomorrow, and I'm kinda worried...but stuff is starting to make sense, so I think I'll be okay.

To prove I am not dead, here is a bit of the next Dark Roses chapter. Unfortunately, this is just about it, so anyone who follows it will have to wait some more. A chapter by Spring break, I swear to God!

Chapter 19: Action )

So. Funfun.

I think that's about all right now, whee.

Yeah.

Good movie

Just saw Pan's Labyrinth with GodBrother.

Very good. Dark fairy tale--rated R for language and pretty graphic violence--enough to make me wince, but not as bad as the Passion of the Christ. In Spanish, subtitled, and I really liked that--I heard an interview on NPR saying the director debated whether to put it in Spanish or English, and decided on Spanish because of the authenticity (it takes place in Spain) and the musicality of the language. I thought it was an excellent choice. Great music, great plotline, and an interesting philosophical question:

Spoilers! )

Great movie--I highly recommend it.

Have a super-fun idea for a fic, inspired by one of our group mimes today. Expect some soon.

Oh boy! And Trinity Blood just got interesting!
