Current Obsession: Escaflowne, specifically Van/Hitomi
I am an aspiring writer that is both a procrastinator and a lazy bum. Which means I lack the ability to finish any of my original works. Luckily, this is a site for fanfiction, which I can complete. So, rest assured, I never discontinue stories or put them on hold, because I believe in satisfying readers and myself by finsihing my work. I am currently a student; updates may be somewhat slow, but I can always find a little bit of time to write a few parapraghs every couple of days.
Escaflowne is an obession of mine because I absolutely adore the way Van and Hitomi's relationship is portrayed. Their attraction is so raw and realistic in a setting that is extremely surreal. Hitomi acts as a normal teenage girl would under the circumstances- she can't help but be dependent on the people around her to protect her, and yet she is opinionated and strong when the situation demands it. Van acts as a realistic king, with a quiet strength that is both formidable and gentle, which completely contradicts how Hitomi forces his stubborn side to awaken whenever they bicker. I could actually see how a future relationship between the two could occur.
The other characters in the series play very generalized parts that are essential to the story, such as the caged princess Millerna, young prince Chid with the weight of a country on his shoulders, or Merle, acting as devoted as a normal cat would be with her master. They are quite realistic as well; I never question whether one of the characters would actually react to a situation in the way that they do, and that is what makes the series so amazing to me.
My mini rant of Escaflowne awesomeness is over, I swear.
Blackbird: Oneshot, a piece inspired by the well known Beatles song. A look at the possible encounters Van and Hitomi have through their connection to one another, including Van's perspective on Hitomi and what his life is like without her. Set in the rebuilt Fanelia, amongst Van and his annoying council of advisors. I found myself using patience as a theme, completely by accident, and I'm not very upset that I did so. My first little experiment in Escaflowne.
Two A.M.: Oneshot, AU, something that popped into my head one night when I couldn't sleep. I had no idea what I was going to write when I actually sat down and did it - I was rather surprised it turned out the way it did - but I'm quite pleased. I think I like it because it wasn't something that required grandiose language or dialogue; it was lazy, laid back, simple, not complicated at all. Yet it detailed an important stage in Van and Hitomi's relationship without dramatics. I've never done anything quite like it, and I can't say I didn't enjoy it.
