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.

Day Six: In your own space, share a book/song/movie/tv show/fanwork/etc that changed your life. Something that impacted on your consciousness in a way that left its mark on your soul.

The Pokemon fandom. That's how I got my start in writing fanfiction and made many new friends after interacting with them for a bit. I'm not as active in Pokemon forums as before, but I still have some memories, both the good and bad, over stuff that happened and the chats I had with my friends. Thanks to them I got interested in other shows, movies, books, etc.

Day 5: In your own space, talk about a creator. Show us why you think they are amazing. Leave a comment in this post saying you did it. Include a link to your post if you feel comfortable doing so.

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!

Thanks to [ 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.

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 [ 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 )
bay_alexison: (I got a secret)
-Tuesday I had to go to the DMV (my mom wants me to save a spot for her while she drops my sister to her college) and bleh longggg line as it was closed on Monday due to President's Day. All I'm going to say is the DMV might need to be reinvented.

-Last night found out my doctor's appointment had been rescheduled from March 2nd to March 1st, which is the same day I have to turn in my [ profile] fmabigbang, haha. Most likely I'll email the story minutes before I leave. Nothing serious, physically or mentally, is wrong with me, but I do have a physical condition of sorts that I have to go to a specialist for check up every few months.

-Related to the last point, got some art emailed from two of my artists. [ profile] seta_suzume already mentions one of them (SMILING SCAR, YES! XD) and my other one showed me two of hers, one of which is Roy and Riza...perhaps sexy politics? Yes, I went there with mentioning that movie. I'm glad a smut scene of mine is decent enough for art, LOL.

-So, how about that news over Pokemon Black and White 2? I'm still unsure what to think. I do know though I need to get back playing Pokemon Black. Might do that after FMA Big Bang.

While I'm here, here have a meme I got from [ profile] classicgirl1325 (sorry for the long wait!):

Comment to this post, and I will list seven things I want you to talk about. They might make sense or they might be totally random. Then post that list, with your commentary, to your journal. Other people can get lists from you, and the meme merrily perpetuates itself.

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 [ profile] aztecravemonkey/[personal profile] mercoledi. Lots of ramblings ahead!

End of Year Fanfic Meme this way )
bay_alexison: (Will turn back time until I get it right)
Since several people are going at Dreamwidth and making accounts/crossposting there, here's mine: [personal profile] bay_alexison. Feel free to add me there if you have a DW account too! If you are, let me know if your DW username is the same as your LJ one or not. I might post at Dreamwidth a feel times just to make sure the crossposting works and try out other stuff, otherwise I'll still be posting at LJ and it should be up at DW too for those that'll be hanging around at DW more (had imported my LJ stuff at DW, which took almost a whole day @_@ ).

In other news, only the people at the BBS forums will probably get this but...BRB, loling forever over imagining a bunch of baby Pokemon were able to carry a Mantyke (hadn't realized I weighted that much until Jax mentioned it, lol).
bay_alexison: (Enjoying your company)
Not only rough drafts for are due on October 30th, but [ profile] nekusagi is due to post her [ profile] pokemon_bigbang story, which I have been betaing and helping her with, on the same day. So this means I have one Big Bang fic to have the drafts finished and one Big Bang I need to get the betaing done. D:

I'm not too worried as I actually just have one more scene for the sixth chapter before it's done. Somehow [ profile] gsd_rtfn helped me become more productive with my fic for the last week than the last couple months I had working on it. XD The story so far is around over 26,000 words when combing the first six chapters together (wow, didn't realize I made it that far D: ), but I still got a bit more ground to go (the story is most likely going to be 40,000 words by the time I finish. Geez louise. @_@ ). I seriously want to thank [ profile] muziris for being a huge help on my story so far! <3 Without her my FMA Big Bang would be a huge mess, lol.

Editing and helping [ profile] nekusagi's fic for Pokemon Big Bang has been a huge joy so far and very looking forward to the last parts of her fic. Don't worry Dawn, you're doing a fabulous job on the story so far and people will defiantly read it! *hugs*

Besides Big Bang stuff, I STILL need to plot out my [ profile] help_japan fic for NaNo and get that ROY AND RIZA IN HAUNTED HOUSE fic finished for Halloween. Er, whatever is mentioned in this entry is pretty much my to do list for the last few days of October, wee.

A bit off topic, thanks to a few people had been watching Downton Abbey and am loving it so far. To those that I talked to the show with, any one of you have watched the sixth episode? Are you guys ready for the last episode of the second season? I don't know if I'm ready, LOL.
bay_alexison: (I got soul  but I'm not  a solider)
Er...yeah, I'll get to posting a non-fic entry eventually. XD

Sorry for the lateness, prompter! Also, I hope you’re fine with me using Hilbert instead of Touya. I like the name, okay? XD I want to thank [ profile] enigma_shadow1 and [ profile] bobnbill for their great beta work and suggestions over how to make this story better! And oh, this fic brought to you by Techy TV.

Fifteen, and N was just dreaming. )

LOL, so I was skimming through a male slash [ profile] springkink fic (I sometimes browse some fics for no reason, heh) that got posted and I found this part:

Tatsumi was cautious and considered. His hands were large and well-sculpted, and Hisoka found his gaze lingering on them when his attention would better be directed elsewhere. He was beautiful, but of course almost everyone in the office was beautiful. Tatsumi was still.

And in the back of his mind, he remembered the shadows, how they'd felt on his skin. In his skin.

What was wrong with him? (Nothing. Everything.)


Pffffffffffft. Seriously, I find it hilarious a title of an old Pokemon fic I finished is used in a male slash fic. This also reminds me the time Saber from Serebii forums used the tagline "Nohting. Everything." for her (dead) fic's banner.

(Real quick, the passage is from this fic. I don't know anything about Yami no Matsuei, so I didn't read the story. Again, just skimmed through it for no reason and THAT passage came D:)
bay_alexison: (Battle!)
Haha, apparently my morning started off with a small earthquake, which happened around close to 8am. I was still sleeping, and then felt two huge shakes, thus waking me up. I later got out of my room to see my parents and they immediately told me that they too felt the earthquake. Since my family and I live in southern California we're used to earthquakes a million times already, but it's still very annoying to be waken up by one, oi.

Not long after, my dad went off to work and my mom and I were watching a little bit of a western movie (my mom LOVES westerns @_@ ) in which one of the characters was a blind cowboy. Somehow we had a quick conversation about blindness with my mom saying along the lines, "Nothing but darkness around them" and "They need to feel around their surroundings all the time". I then told her blind people can still do a lot of stuff on their own and will need to use all their other senses besides touch. After that conversation was over, I was then reminded of all the silly mistakes I did with my [ profile] springkink fic Like a Radio Drama that I posted back on February. LOL, I think I know where my mistake of not researching blindness in the first place came from. Thanks, Mom. -_-

Speaking of [ profile] springkink, I have two stories I'll be posting there soon. The first story will be Roy/Riza (with Roy not blind in this one thank goodness, LOL) and it'll be posted on the 17th. My next story is actually going to be Pokemon and will be posted hopefully on the 21st. What's funny is the Pokemon story is going to be a N/Hilbert friendship one. XD But hey, at least I'm finally going to write Pokemon again after not writing one for several months and excited about that! :D
bay_alexison: (Fixin' to die)
Okay, decided to finish the rest of the 30 Day Fanfic Meme right now for a few reasons:

*The others have done that
*I want to get this over with and it seems much better if you guys see the answers in one go instead of posting the answers day by day
*I have plans of doing fanfic, anime, and to do list posts in the next few days and I don't want to clutter my friends list with two/three posts a day
*Want to focus on my writings soon, so I'm getting this out of the way

With that said, enjoy my answers to the rest of this meme. XD For those that missed the first three days, I linked them here.

Fanfic Meme Days 4-30 )
bay_alexison: (Can you hear me?)
3 - For each of the fandoms from day two, what were your favorite characters to write?

Pokemon: In terms of canon characters, Officer Jenny, definitely. In the anime there’s not too much personality with her going on, so I had fun coming up one for her. Also, considering there’s more than one Officer Jenny, it’s safe to say not one Jenny are the same. :P

FMA: Roy Mustang because you can have his characterization go in different routes, depending on what kind of story you’re writing. For instance, for something drama like you can have him be all serious, ambitious, and caring all in one while in a crack fic you can make him silly. He’s a pretty complex but flexible character. XD; I also enjoy writing Ling Yao a lot when I did Down the Road. While writing, I got to go deeper into his mind over his thoughts about the trip back to Xing and the political stuff going on with Amestris and the neighboring countries.

Naruto and Homestuck: Both of them again I just wrote one story each, but I enjoyed writing Deidara and John a lot.

Other Days )
bay_alexison: (Rainy day no thank you)
PC's Small Writing Contest for the Get Together has been closed and there are twenty one entries [ profile] bobnbill, [ profile] speaker_astinus, and I have to go through.


...So lucky I just need to read and give out the scores instead of also having to do full blown reviews like Serebii's HeartGold/SoulSilver one shot contest back in 2009. Either case though, bye bye writing time for a week or two. O:

Since I'm here, time for day two of the fanfic meme!

2 – Name the fandoms you've written in, and how much you've written in that fandom, and if you still write in it.

So far I have written four fandoms, two I have written only one story for each and two I wrote quite a bit.

*Pokemon- I already mentioned how five years ago I started Pokemon fanfiction due to being inspired by some great writers at Serebii forums. So far I have posted...*goes check Master Fic List* twelve stories in public: three finished chaptered fics, one unfinished chaptered fic, and eight one shots. I have like six other Pokemon one shots, but I don't like them. x_x At the moment I'm not writing Pokemon fanfiction, but I still have vague ideas time to time so I might be able to do some again soon.

*FMA- LOL, losing track since there are some stories from [ profile] fma_fic_contest I need to post here and a couple that are saved in my documents folder, but perhaps I have done close to thirty stories so far? I believe I'll still write stories for FMA for a long time since I keep getting plot bunnies for this fandom. Also, with [ profile] fmabigbang coming soon, I'll be focusing on the story I plan to enter it in for a while.

*Naruto- LOL back in 2009 a couple friends of mine would talk a lot about Naruto, so I went straight to watching Naruto: Shippuden (already know what happens pre-Shippuden, so I didn't bother watching the original series). I wrote a short where Deidara blew up Sasori, Solf Kimblee style. x_x I actually did wrote another piece based around one of the anime-based arcs, but that story wasn't going anywhere, so I scrap it. Not in that fandom anymore, so no more fics there.

*Homestuck- Wrote a one shot that's basically a retelling of when John met Grimdark! Rose thanks to a prompt from [ profile] seta_suzume's No True Pairing community at Dreamwidth. Right now Homestuck is getting way, WAY confusing and I haven't looked through the updates in a week, but I have a couple fanfic ideas which I may do after I get some of my FMA stories done. One idea is in which it's an AU where Jade gets kidnap and Terezi has to find her (thank you, Seta! XD).

Other Days )
bay_alexison: (Loved)
Okay, so as those here who visits Pokecommunity knows, the Get Together has been extended from Monday to Thursday. Originally the Get Together's Small Writing Competition is suppose to end on Monday, but then [ profile] bobnbill, [ profile] speaker_astinus, and I decided to have it end tonight. Before the extension, there were nine entries and I got done looking through five of them. After the extension, six entries came, five of which were PMed today once I checked my inbox. x_x There's a little over seven hours left until the stories are due, so I'm expecting a whole bunch more last minute entries like the last two times I judged the SWC the last two times. This will be a long week since some of the entries are LONG, haha.

In the meantime, a 30 day fanfic meme I stole from [ profile] aamalie because I love to ramble a lot over my writings. Let's see how much I'm able to keep up with this one.

Day 1 - How did you first get into writing fanfic, and what was the first fandom you wrote for? What do you think it was about that fandom that pulled you in?

I got into fanfic writing a little over five years ago when I got back to Pokemon and reading some fanifcs at Serebii forums. Back then there were many BNF writers there like Cheshire Cat, Scrap, Saber, [ profile] grandmastasexeh, [ profile] undersaffiresky, and [ profile] evil_bunny_king. I loved their writings a lot and so I was inspired to write a Pokemon fic. I did and able to finish it, but oh my god back then I didn't know how to keep my tenses straight, dialogue is all stuffy, and too many awkward sentences. x_x I still love the story though because it was my first story written in a while (I had written some original works before going to fanfiction) and had fun with it.

What drew me in writing for the Pokemon fandom is the many different ways you can go about writing it. It's so open since you can write about either original or canon characters, the Pokemon, the evil teams, a certain event that happened in game/anime/manga/any other source, etc. There are endless possibilities.

...Oh man, I really want to write Pokemon fanfiction again. ;_;

Other Days )
bay_alexison: (Battle!)
Oh my gosh guys, should I sign up for [ profile] pokemon_bigbang? It's really great that now there is one as I have been waiting on one for a while and this is also a great opportunity to write Pokemon fanfiction again. However...

1. NO ORIGINAL CHARACTERS allowed. I have a couple ideas that I could write for Pokemon, but they involve original characters. x_x I could go hunt for some possible prompts with the canon characters, but I like making original characters in the Pokemon world. XD

2. I actually have four FMA fics I need to do, three having deadlines in August and one for [ profile] help_japan (the one [ profile] evil_little_dog requested since the other help_japan fic I posted a couple days ago). ALSO, second round of [ profile] fmabigbang is also coming in August and I plan on participating again. I should be able to get the three fics with deadlines done before FMA Big Bang comes. The help_japan fic, on the other hand...we'll see about that. >.<;

I'm so, SO tempted to do Pokemon Big Bang, but that would mean I would also do two Big Bangs and maybe the help_japan story once August hits. On the one hand, I can switch off between the three stories, but on the other hand I'll be really, really exhausted. x_x

Oh, and there's also that Gosick story I mentioned eariler, but I'm pushing that aside for now until I get my FMA fics done. D:

Gawds, looks like this will be a long summer doing a lot of writing...
bay_alexison: (Gears of time are turning to my side)
Meme stolen from [ profile] actonthat because this seems like a fun OC survey to do. That, and I would like to a meme where I can talk a bit more about my original characters, wee.
