Well, I said I was going to try to update y'all more than twice a year, so here we are. If you remember previously, I was ENGAGED and wedding planning is slowly chuggin along. There was a mini-Zeldathon that was much fun and we're coming up on Zeldathon Cures at the end of December where I'll be playing the Minish Cap again except that it will be a race against the two prior runners and that will be muy interesting.
Believe it or not, I've actually been writing! Last year during NANO I hashed out most (but not all) of a rough draft for that one Tetra fic I've wanted to do since forever, and while I'm not doing NANO this year, I did finish up the draft. I don't think I'm going to be actually publishing anything until the whole fic is at least sort of polished and done, though. But it kills me that I haven't posted anything in nearly two years. :(
- Taranea is still publishing Sonic stuff every now and then, and as she was my first favorite fanfic author, she will always have a special place in my heart.
- Cleolinda Jones hardly posts on LiveJournal anymore, but she is still very active on Twitter and Tumblr. I couldn't tell you now how I first ran across her, but the honesty and humor that she writes with about real life stuff - especially her bipolar disorder - is refreshing and frankly kind of magical.
- Radio Hyrule, home of Zelda arrangements and remixes all day, everyday. Also home of the fan theory show, Hyrule Academy, which has been on a bit of a hiatus but should return in the next couple months because YOURS TRULY was asked to be manager and occasional fill-in host!!! SuperMCGamer's and my Twitter accounts will be the best way to find out when we return and when shows will be.
- Zeldathon. Just Zeldathon. Zelda games, charity, donation schnanigans, and friends.
- Basics: female, 26, engaged
- Occupation: Circulation clerk at a library
- Appearance: 5'1", 100-ish lbs, long dark hair, fair skin
- Personality: Quiet, laid-back, nurturing, conflict-avoidant, indecisive, procrastinator
- Sonic -
Fraternitas: Previously titled "A Lover Lost, A Brother Gained." More of a Sonic/Shadow brotherly than either's relationship with Amy. "Fraternitas" is Latin for "brotherhood."
Liberate: Poem/songfic hybrid drawing from "Going Under" by Evanescence.
Captivate: Prose pretending to be poetry inspired by "My Immortal", also Evanescence.
L'Ombre de l'Opéra: Phantom of the Opera, modernized. Blaze as Christine, Silver is Raoul, Shadow as Phantom/Erik. Officially on hiatus.
One in Eight Hundred: A true, hundred-word drabble according to Microsoft Word. Somewhat expanded in "Tulips and Windmills".
Falling For: The beginning of Shahra's and Erazor's "relationship" - which, if you pick up the hints the game drops, was clearly an abusive one. The title can be ended with either "him" or "it".
Naiveté: Originally posted at http://www.fanfiction.net/s/4909788/18/The_Dark_Side_of_the_Hog. Cream, the end of Sonic X season 3, and growing up/loss of innocence.
Like Daughter, Like Mother: Vanilla deals with her future as a teenage mother.
Tulips and Windmills: An extension of "One in Eight Hundred". Sonic and Amy's child is born with Down Syndrome. Title from Emily Perl Kingsley's essay "Welcome to Holland" (). I decided that it works well enough as a one-shot to mark it as "complete", but it may be added to some day.
The Counterfeit Collaborator: My first humor fic, inspired by a late-night AIM discussion. Omochao reveals its true identity. Fun fact: up to the point where it sings, everything Omochao says in the fic is a verbatim quote from SA2B.
- Zelda -
Ice Blue Queen: Zant banishes Midna from the Twilight realm, but with 50% more creepiness, because Zant is a creeper.
Metempsychosis: Malon, Ilia, their relationships with their Links, and reincarnation.
Final Hours: The citizens of Clock Town face impending death, and everyone reacts differently. Inspired by the fan album Times End by Theophany.
The King of Evil and the Schoolteacher: An attempt to explain why Mrs. Marie has ReDeads in her basement. Inspired by both "Arsenic and Old Lace" and the ReDeads episode of the Hyrule Academy podcast.
- Doctor Who -
And Look at Me, I'm Wearing a Drabble! - No planned update schedule, just post them when I write them.
--> #1 - Don't Ask: Sorry guys, but your awkwardness regarding anything relating to periods never gets old.
--> #2 - What You Say!!: "Dalek", the internet and memes. Hee.
--> #3 - Wardrobe Injunction: Ten chooses his new outfit and Rose is a spoilsport. Silly Doctor, scarfs are for Four!
- Other -
God's Icy Wind (Crucible): Older!Betty is tormented by both her conscience and Older!Abigail. Inspired by portraying Betty in February 2009 university production.
Capitulate (Beauty and the Beast): The Beast's resignation to his death during the castle raid.
Masterpiece (Jak and Daxter): Erol's sadism in poem form. This is currently my favorite work.
Neglect (Professor Layton): Flora tells off Layton for leaving her home alone when he's supposed to be her guardian.
Angels (Tales of Symphonia): A look at Kratos's changing concept of angels over his long life. A poem in iambic meter with alternating lines of eight and six syllables and an ABCB rhyme scheme. (Note regarding cover: picture is not mine! It's the cover of this doujinshi by Trenety and koyoudou.)
Restitution (FFVII): Vincent finally gets a shot at this whole time-travel do-over thing.
Aegis (Ace Attorney): Miles Edgeworth deals with his new life living with von Karma after his father's death. Mostly a sibling fic for Miles and Franziska.
- Deleted -
Phoenix (Sonic Underground): OC kidnapped as baby and raised by Robotnik to be perfect servant/commander/whatever. OC deprogrammed by SU. OC marries Manic. OC and Manic have baby. SU roboticized. OC's baby grows up and rescues SU. SU defeats Robotnik, OC dies. Sometime around when I started writing about OC's parents I hit my senses and shoved everything into a PC folder (where I look at it occasionally so I can laugh at my newbie attempts at plot).
Den Lille Pindsvin (Sonic): Adaptation of The Little Mermaid using Elise. Deleted mainly for being OOC.
Possible Future Projects
If any of the following piques your interest, PM me and maybe it'll inspire me to work on it more - at the least, I can bounce ideas off of you!
- An adaptation of Wind Waker that centers on Tetra and what she and her crew are up to while Link is running about collecting MacGuffins. Will include information about Tetra's childhood (er, earlier childhood) and her mother.
- A Doctor Who/Portal crossover, in which it is not Chell but the Tenth Doctor who is GLaDOS's guinea pig. He still gets stuck with that horrid orange jumpsuit, though, so no easy sonic-screwdriver-assisted escape, I'm afraid.
- Princess Bride with Sonic characters. "Hello. My name is Shadow the Hedgehog. You killed Maria. Prepare to die." [I'm not copying you, Taranea, I swear!]
- A Final Fantasy X one-shot comparing Yuna's first and second kisses, because they were SO VERY DIFFERENT.
