[personal profile] kalloway: *also mostly going hmmm*

[personal profile] kalloway: Well, I mentioned trying to make a little bingo card out of things I want/need/should write, etc.?

[personal profile] kalloway: And I found a sticky for [Fandom], which just says 'for [friend]', but that's literally all I've got

[personal profile] kalloway: Except I did find a comment where I mentioned having a bit of fluff for her pairing in a notebook.

[personal profile] kalloway: in a notebook

[personal profile] kalloway: IN A NOTEBOOK

[personal profile] kalloway: I think the safer route is going to be the two cakes route in which I ignore this detail, write something new, and then if the aforementioned bit turns up while going through notebooks later, yay bonus.

Aside from squeaking in all those fics/ficlets/drabbles last night, I put on Dragonball, since it's been sitting here and I've wanted to revisit it~ *grins* So far, Boycritter seems to be enjoying it. And I haven't seen it uncensored, so this is fun~

I'll do some proper fic-announcement posts at some point soonish. Some of them are for some fairly obscure fandoms, alas? AO3's interface does not make for quick fic posting and deargods, I am still horrible with titles. *sighs*

I finally ordered the latest volume of Astray manga and I'm sort of dreading it. From what I've gathered of the premise, it's going to manage to insult a couple of my favorite characters by making them completely OoC and actually fart on the entire premise of SEED in the process. Good job. *sighs* And yet I'm buying it anyway, because.

I also ordered the new volume of UraBoku/The Betrayal Knows My Name. So glad it's coming out again~~ I got into it a couple of Yuletides ago to write something for [personal profile] roseargent and no regrets~

Aaaand, the Pilot Candidate/Candidate for Goddess box set which includes the OVA! \o/ So a little old, a little new all around. ^_^

It's been unseasonably warm here... I'm ready for it to be fall~

Perfect Timing 2

I had cause to pull this off the shelf the other day in order to write a Tides of Time article. I'm sure Perfect Timing wasn't the first Dr Who charity fanfiction anthology but it was the first of a new wave that started during the "wilderness years" when the line between fan and professional Dr Who fiction was particularly blurred. Perfect Timing 2, obviously, was its follow up and charity fanfiction anthologies, as far as I can tell, have continued to be published on a regular basis ever since.

All the fics, ficlets, and drabbles for [personal profile] luxken27's Summer Mini-Challenge are written! Because I'm ridiculous! Now, for the quickest bit of editing and posting known to the land~~

Go go go!

Why I love Tokyo Xanadu

I bought and started playing this game on the Vita around the beginning of August. I initially thought it might just be a temporary distraction before I put it aside in favour of some shinier game, but not only did Tokyo Xanadu turn out to be a very shiny game in its own right, but I found myself getting super invested in it -- and after about a month and a half, during which I clocked up about 80 hours of playtime, I finished my first playthrough last weekend!

As much as I love this game, it sadly doesn't seem to have gotten much fandom attention, so I thought I'd write a gushy post (not a formal review by any means) talking about why I'm so bloody fond of it; I'm hoping it might encourage more people to give the game a try, along with calling out to existing fans. :3

Cue the spoiler-free gushing! )

I started playing Trails of Cold Steel shortly after beating TX, and I'm enjoying that so far as well. I guess I'm steadily falling into Falcom hell!

Tables!

I didn't forget about [personal profile] luxken27's annual summer prompt tables, but I've just been so... flat that I couldn't even anything.

Tomorrow is the due date. I am going to be downright hellbent ridiculous determined.

TABLES! )

"Oh, I know just the menu to use for this... I can have them order..." *digs out fancy restaurant menu, starts perusing*

Ten minutes later...

"WAAAAIIIIT! This is supposed to be a short smutfic with minimal lead-up."

BUT FOOD.

*scribbles notes for longer epic foodporn fic to write later*

Well, I need to go back to it at some point and rework it into a list for this week, but I'm pretty confident in saying I didn't get most of my weekend to-do taken care of. ^^;; I did get a lot done in the bookroom, which was definitely one of the most important things. However, a lot of it involved unpacking and sorting books and now my bedroom is a disaster of bookpiles (whoops?). I ended up moving a couple of bookcases and the desk twice, because I had ~~different ideas, and then I had one more but ended up not doing it, because instead of trying to incorporate the cedar chest that's been floating around, I should see about parting with it. I don't use it, stuff gets piled on it, and like many pieces of furniture that came over here, it's not actually in very good shape. Well... I don't have to decide on anything today.

Basically, I have to keep reminding myself that not only can I be flexible, it's okay if I am. So if this layout isn't working in a few weeks, I can try something new.

Just unpacking and sorting, I've pulled out three books to go already. Well, for one, I read one chapter and immediately deposited it in the 'take to pagan shop' basket. Not my cuppa. I suspect this will happen more and more as I keep going, especially with reference books that are interesting but not the sorts of things I'll ever need to reference that often, or that seem impressively redundant (like the dozens of gardening books).

Other than that, words! I'm sort of trying for the impossible, lol. Wish me luck! (And words!)

Reading, Listening, Watching

purplecat: A pile of hardback books (General:Books)
[personal profile] purplecat
Reading: The Regiment - The Real Story of the SAS as recommended yonks ago by [personal profile] fififolle. I'm not, in general, that much interested by the military but do keep having to write them in stories. I've only just finished the first chapter on the Iranian Embassy siege.

Listening: The Writers' Room have been wrong about a lot of things recently. I've just finished listening to them being wrong about Ian Stuart Black, before that they were very, very wrong about Stephen Gallagher and before that a little bit wrong about Douglas Adams.

Watching: We ran out of Netflix available Killjoys, fortunately the second series of The Expanse turned up to fill the gap.
