Extemporaneous
written for Reigisa Week
Prompt 1: First Kiss

Extemporaneous was inspired by something that actually happened to me. I think the story is hilarious. So I'ma retell it here. I wrote it exactly as I would tell it out loud, because I could. Enjoy. :P

You know you're curious...Collapse )

That was kinda long. Whoops. Hope you were amused anyways.

Writing Update: The Sternbild Files parts 1 and 2 now posted

For those of you following along at home, The Sternbild Files is now live on Archive of Our Own. The chapters currently posted are heavy in exposition, but it was a necessary evil to establish the shared universe of the crossover. The next chapter won't be up for at least another week or two, but we will finally see the cast of Tiger & Bunny; yay!

That awkward sex scene I mentioned a few entries back is almost sorted out, meaning two more parts of Incidental will be posted soon as well. You can also look forward to a number of fanfics in the next week and a half as my contributions to Reigisa Week on tumblr.(SURPRISE! I am now majorly obsessed with Free! Iwatobi Swim Club and basically got tumblr to reblog Free! fanworks. Warning: my tumblr is NSFW)

The Summer of Anime has begun. And the fanfics are pouring in.


I Need Your Help!

I have no Beta, so I have no one to throw my writing ideas off of. I'm hoping maybe someone here can help me. Basically, I need to stylistically distinguish between what is occurring in "real life" and what is happening in a video. I'm having trouble figuring out how to do it.
More in depth explanation under the cutCollapse )
I would be so appreciative of any general input anyone can give me. Or if anyone wants to read through the passage and offer specific input, I would be totally down for that too.

Author's Notes: The Sternbild Files (Supernatural Powers)
AO3 icon

"As you are aware, there are individuals who possess supernatural powers. ... There are five classifications of supernatural powers, and a myriad of abilities that fall into these categories. These abilities present at varying intensities in a percentage of the population, though a much smaller percentage have abilities strong enough that they are aware of and have the potential to control their abilities."
-Excerpt from The Sternbild Files (Part 1)

Classifications of Supernatural PowersCollapse )


Very little, is any, of this information is necessary to read/enjoy the story. But I since I spent way too much time compiling this, I figured I might as well share it. I also have a list that details which heroes/shinigamis have which powers, but it would contain spoilers for later in the series. However, I will be posting character bios for characters as of the start of the story, and this will include supernatural abilities.

Awkward Writing
AO3 icon
myrabidpetspoon
I have been working on a piece for just about a month now. I have been really struggling with it for one major reason: writing an "intimate encounter" between two characters you don't ship is hard. I'm running with "intimate encounter", because I don't know if I'll be able to make it through a full blown sex scene. I'm trying, because this encounter is specifically alluded to in a later piece, but it's coming out so awkwardly.

I'm thinking I'm going to have to gloss over a lot, because I don't want it to come across as awkward. These two are comfortable with each other. They are good friends. They are co-workers. And they totally have a sexual history together in my head-cannon. But I just can't write them together. Ugh. Talk about frustrating.


But on a positive note: I finished the first chunk (chapter?) of my YnM and T&B crossover fic. I'll be posting that soon, but I have some of my students for only 2 more days (AHHHHHHHH *panicpanicpanic*), so my focus is there right now. But in 10 more days (AHHHHHHHH *panicpanicpanic*), I will be entirely done with this school year. So you can be sure to expect a whole lot more starting in June. :)

Lord Help Us-- I'm Writing a Cross Over
YnM- WTF
myrabidpetspoon
I don't like cross overs. I avoid them like the plague. I don't read them. I don't even consider reading them. And I certainly don't write them.

But then I stumbled upon the T and B Anon Meme, and someone provided the prompt for a Yami no Matsuei and Tiger & Bunny crossover. I looked at it for a while, intrigued, and moved on. Days later, when I was supposed to be grading papers, fragments of a plot started to flutter into view. I now have pages of notes, outlining plot points, character interactions, key details for merging both universes, timeline of events, character ages, categorizing supernatural abilities... I have a title. And I have 3.5 pages of this saga already written.

What is wrong with me?! XD

I have a bunch of other projects I should be working on (including finishing up the school year, eep!), but this damn project won't leave me alone. Oh well. What can ya do when inspiration strikes?

This story will not be uploaded to AO3 until it is completed and edited, but I will be mirroring the posts from the meme here, on my journal. I will also be uploading the copious amounts miscellaneous information about the universe, characters, backgrounds, etc. by way of Author's Notes. So there is that to look forward to.

National Poetry Month- April
Ariel: giggle
myrabidpetspoon
It has been brought to my attention that it is national poetry month. I shall follow wordsofastory's lead and post a poem every day. One of my favorite English teachers had a unit within his Writing Fiction and Poetry class dedicated to song lyrics, so song lyrics will be included in this endeavor.
