Day 11: Stretch yourself a little and try something new. Go play in a new fandom or with a new pairing or trope. Try creating a different kind of fanwork. Or check out some types of fanworks that are new to you.

This is where I check out a Homestuck pairing for this challenge )
bay_alexison: (Coffee)
Day 9: In your own space, rec at least 3 fanworks you thought you wouldn't like (because they weren't your fandom or they pushed against your boundaries or you thought you just wouldn't be interested) but you ended up loving.

One FMA and two Homestuck recs )


Day 10: In your own space, create a list of at least three fannish things you'd love to receive, something you've wanted but were afraid to ask for - a fannish wish-list of sorts.

Saw [personal profile] likeadeuce post some commentary on the fics she wrote for 2013 and thought I would do the same because I like talking about my fics.

I already posted the links to my 2013 fic, so if any of you want to check out the stories I mentioned in this meme, head over to that post.

Fanfic 2013 questions )

Day 3: In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you did not create. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so. See if you can rec fanworks that are less likely to be praised: tiny fandoms, rare pairings, fanworks other than stories, lesser-known kinks or tropes. Find fanworks that have few to no comments, or creators new to a particular fandom who maybe aren't well known or appreciated. Appreciate them.

Fanwork recs )

Day 4: Comment to someone you haven't ever interacted with before or introduce yourself to someone you've interacted with and friend/follow them. Afterwards, leave a comment in this post with the equivalent of "I did it!"

It doesn't have to be anything complex - it can be feedback for a fanwork or discussing something you might have in common or even simply admiring their icon. The point is to reach out to someone you normally wouldn't and connect with them, even if it's only for the briefest moment.

Already mentioned in the thread that I did. The feedbacks I did are for a Roy/Riza story and a Pokemon one. I do recommend checking those out!

Day 2: In your own space, promote three communities, challenges, blogs, pages, Twitters, Tumblrs or platforms and explain why you love them.

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] lunaria_kitty, I'm going to try [community profile] snowflake_challenge. Basically it's a challenge to celebrate fandom activity. Let's do this!

(I realized this is the second post where I link my fics, so I apologize for that. This was unintentional, haha.)


Day One: In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you have created. It can be your favorite fanworks that you've created, or fanworks you feel no one ever saw, or fanworks you say would define you as a creator. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

The drink used in the story is Crème de menthe, a mint flavored cocktail.

Excerpt:
"May I offer you an empty seat that is next to me?" Rose asked, interrupting Kanaya's thoughts.

"Beg your pardon?" After glimpsing at the empty seat, Kanaya said sheepishly, "Thanks for your generosity, but I'm fine standing up."

"If you insist. Since this is a bar, you care for a glass of cocktail drinks while we have a conversation together?"

"I would appreciate that very much."

Rose gave Kanaya a slight nod and turned to the bartender. "Give us two crème de menthe, please."

Color Meme

Is it just me, or is media seemed to tell us to not focus on your career and "GO MAKE BABIES!" Now I'm all for having a work/life balance as it's good to not be stressful about your work all the time and also am cool with people who wants to start a family. However, there are those that want to focus on career first baby later, and those that don't even want children. There are those that love their jobs amd have that as their life and don't mind it at all, which is okay too. I shouldn't be surprised since this has been going on for a while, but this has been on my mind lately.

Okay, enough with my rambling. Let's go with a meme I stole from [livejournal.com profile] missyquill. She gave me the color orange and I have to list ten things that remind me of that color. If you like to play too, let me know and I'll give you a color!

Ten things that make me think of ORANGE )

Title: Mother-Daughter Time
Author:: [livejournal.com profile] bay115/[archiveofourown.org profile] Bay

Characters: Roxy Lalonde, Frigglish (cat), Frigglish (Complacency of the Learned), alpha!Rose Lalonde
Rating: PG-13

Warnings: Mild language, character death, spoilers for Act 6
Summary: Roxy dreams of being a character from her mother’s books and then meeting Mom herself.
Note: HAPPY 4/13 EVERYONE! For [livejournal.com profile] god_tier’s Reverse Big Bang, where the artists does the art first and then the writers do a short piece based on that art. The art I had to write the story for is entitled “Mother Daughter Time” by masumi_hijiri (art below). Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] bobnbill for the great betaing!


(art by masumi_hijiri)


Mother-Daughter Time


Every night before bed Roxy made it a routine to read her mother's Complacency of the Learned books, sipping either wine or vodka in between )
bay_alexison: (SPROING)
Haha I'm pretty amused whenever I go to Tumblr I would see art based off from the latest Homestuck updates already. I shouldn't be surprised considering the huge fanbase, but sometimes I wonder how the fans were able to whip up quick art minutes/hours after the update, LOL.

Anyways, I had been looking over some of the past flashes and a couple things had been bothering me, mainly Aradia and Vriska. Anyone keeping up with the webcomic, you guys remember how Aradia and Vriska died before they became God Tier? I want to say Vriska had killed Aradia, but not sure about that. I pretty much rushed through the story until I got caught up last year so I'm forgetting many things, lol.

Another thing I want to mention is anyone free to do a quick beta for a FMA story of mine? It's a "what Riza does in her free time" and it's for [livejournal.com profile] fmagiftexchange. Pretty much slice of life kind of story but I thing I made it somewhat interesting.

Speaking of betaing, ack still need to look over [livejournal.com profile] missyquill's beta notes for Chapter 4 of my Big Bang and [livejournal.com profile] alchemyotaku75's beta notes for my help_japan fic (which she had send to me...almost three weeks ago). Soooo behind due to real life and wanting to write a couple new stories, haha. The past several weeks I had done nothing but editing. @_@

2011 is coming to a close, which is like woah to me as it felt like time passed so by quickly. I like to say it has been an okay year. Quite a bit of ups and down at my end but I feel I have changed a lot and thought things in different perspectives now. I'm also grateful for the several new friends I gained in both the FMA and Pokemon fandom. Love you all, guys! I don't usually do New Years resolution, but for next year I want to improve my writing skills more and to at least get some personal stuff done/figure out. Here's to hoping 2012 is great!

Second part of this entry is a fanfic meme I stole from [livejournal.com profile] aztecravemonkey/[personal profile] mercoledi. Lots of ramblings ahead!

End of Year Fanfic Meme this way )
