I love musicals more than anything, so pretty much any canon couple too. Yes, canon--sorry. My favorite musicals (mostly in order) are RENT, Spring Awakening, Heathers, Next to Normal, Bare, In the Heights, I Love You Because, Dear Evan Hansen, The Color Purple, Hamilton, Avenue Q, Spamalot, Memphis, Newsies, Company, The Last Five Years, Book of Mormon, Young Frankenstein, West Side Story, My Fair Lady, A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum, The Glorious Ones, A Little Night Music, Into the Woods, A Chorus Line, Curtains, and Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson. And wow, a lot more! So if you ever want to talk about musicals (or any theatre!), I'm all ears!
I guess I'll take a moment to talk about my stories.
Drabble Hour: Pokéshipping future-fic with children. Don't really stand behind this one anymore. I think the chapters are cute enough, but I don't like the plot.
White Christmas: Pokéshipping. Super cliché. But if that's your thing...
Weather the Storm: Pokéshipping. OC based. Other ships. Multi-chap. I don't think that it holds up anymore. It was good at the time, but now...eh.
AAML Alphabet Challenge: WIP. Typical alphabet challenge, except every chapter is AAML. Obviously. Some chapters are better than others...They're all kind of weird ideas that I wouldn't post as standalone oneshots. I have a side-challenge for myself of trying to include a variety of different styles, perspectives, voices, genres, etc. Preferably things I haven't explored before. Feel free to leave ideas and other requests. Sporadic updates.
Unfulfilled weird ideas: All dialogue/like a play, letters, poem, universe crossing.
Lost in Halloweenia!: Multi-chap Halloween-inspired tale, told in the style of the Pokémon anime. No ships, but plenty of shenanigans!
Ghost Story: WIP. AU multi-chap. Pokéshipping. FINALLY PUBLISHED. Because I thought that I was almost done with it, but then I realized that the end was totally rushed and made no sense, so now I need to totally change the ending--which wasn't even the ending to begin with, but just the end of the second part out of four--which means that I need to totally change to story. Oof. So I am currently working on that, but so far posts are still relatively regular. No hiatus in sight.
ANYWAY this is an adventure-based story, sort of like a Pokémon journey, but not with the goal of collecting badges or anything. Just adventuring. This story is incredibly Misty-centric; Ash is almost a side character more than a main character. But I prefer for my Pokémon stories to focus on action more than romance anyway. I have put a lot of work into this story and while it isn't perfect, it is miles beyond WtS. Um, I have a lot more to say, but this is getting unreasonable, so please check it out! And thank you so much for all the support already!
Birthdays: Chair. I actually do like this one. I wrote most of this over a year before I published it and then I rediscovered it and finished it.
Great Minds: Chair. Just Blair being funny and immature.
First Christmas: Chair and Derena. Darena? Whatever. It's okay.
Charles: Pretty meh. But there were just too many things in GG that played out perfectly in this scenario, so if nothing else I just had to draw attention to that.
Out of My Dreams: St. Berry. Weird one. Don't recommend it. Just put it up because, why not?
Don't Stop Loving Me: St. Berry. Kinda. Loose song-fic for Red Ragtop by Tim McGraw. It has its painful clichés and some rough moments, but I kind of like it.
Only One Way to Find Out: This one's actually okay--no-romance, which was new for me.
Winter Wonderland: Heathers. Series of festive (random) oneshots for the holiday season. From the #DECFANFIC prompt challenge on tumblr.
Hate: Veronica character study. Not my favorite story genre, but I just had to!
What If?: Forever WIP. Yes, some are self-indulgent and ultimately character studies more than honest to goodness solid works of fiction, but I'm only publishing the ones that don't totally suck. This story is marked complete because the chapters are standalone, but I'm still actively adding to it!
Staccato: Pretty unoriginal, but still okay.
Agitato: Not good. At all. There's no story; just dialogue, really. But hey, it's a wanting fandom, so I figured I'd publish it for the heck of it.
To give you an idea of what's to come.
Masquerade (AU Gossip Girl multi-chap)
Currently on Chapter 10, word count: 39K (currently on hiatus for me; won't be published anytime soon.)
Blair has just finished school in France and is trying to get into her mother's good graces before taking over Waldorf Designs by going into a business deal with none other than the infamous Chuck Bass. Unfortunately, he refuses to help her unless she agrees to pretend to be in a relationship with him. I wrote two summaries for this--not sure which one I'm actually going to end up using but I'm going to post both of them here for your enjoyment. Tell me if you're interested and which summary you prefer!
Chuck Bass is one of the richest men in New York. He has power, influence, and the world in the palm of his hand. It seems like nothing is out of reach for him. Until one day, Bass Industries tells him this isn’t so and gives him an ultimatum. Now he’s stuck and he can’t move forward without the help of a petite brunette stranger.
Blair Waldorf is the heir to her mother’s successful clothing line. Having just finished school, she feels ready to take on the company. Her mother, however, wants her to prove herself by successfully performing a business deal. Shouldn’t be too hard, right? But when her potential business partner faces her with a seemingly impossible request, Blair’s not sure how to keep both this stranger and her mother from ruining her future.
I have a community that is filled with the best Pokéshipping stories that I have ever read that are complete. This means good writing, plot, pacing, character-development--the works. The only one that is not completed is Pokemon Master by Acey, but the last chapter is elsewhere on the internet. So, technically it is still finished, just not on this site. It's just that one of my pet peeves is reading a story, getting into it, and then realizing that it may never be finished.
