An hour before lab-test, procrastination now, so, things I want to read (not in any particular order.)

  • More of Connor dealing with the aftermath of NFA. Father-issues, mother-issues and the ability to cave in someone’s skull with a punch.
  • Gerald Tarrant, post-Coldfire. Dirt that refuses to remove itself in the proper manner.
  • Orochimaru and Kabuto, where it is NOT about the abuse or the sex, where their relationship is marginally healthy.
  • Ender. In all of his Glory; tactics, strategies and that ruthlessness when he’s pushed into a corner.
  • Touya, post-power loss. Dealing with it (or not).
  • Marc Remillard on the inevitability of time, fate, and the irony of leaving one’s dream in other people’s hands.
  • Back story on Aral Vorkosigan, pre-Cordelia (MWAHAHAHA!)
  • Yuri; dealing with memories that are not his, feelings that might be, and a Conrad that refuses to hurt those he love (except he does because Conrad can be blind at times, and he loves his brother and would never hurt Wolfram, forgetting that Wolfram is not blind and Yuri can be really stubborn once he figure things out).

    If anyone has the urge to write anything that might be along the lines of the above PLEASE tell me!

    (Please let these breed bunnies.)
  • self-preservation = nil

    The attraction of bad WK fics never grow old. I still hold that Dysfunctional was not bad fic.

    Reading Naruto mpreg . Mmm, pregnant males. Sasuke almost deserve it, but pregnant Iruka makes my teeth hurt. Kakashi being seme and Iruka being uke refuse to compute in my brain.

    NC fanifction is one of those touchy topics. But I have to say there's a lots of it, and I do enjoy reading them. Obviously, I'm perverted. Though I'm not sure if it is related to the h/c, or the NC itself. Hmm. Food for thought.

    I see m/m in almost everything. This makes me glad.

    Fanfiction make feelings of resentment, anger, and frustration go away. Good fanfiction.

    In conclusion: no Orochimaru/Kakashi pron, will have to use own imagination. Imagination is limited, slightly disappointed.

    I don't like AU fanfiction. When I say AU I mean fanfiction where the author place the characters in another time/place/fantasy/different Universe with new pasts, new names, new identities. For example, the GW fandom seems to be the most prominent in the production of this type of AU, the boys lives in Medieval/fantasy setting where they are priests, magicians, warriors, blah, blah, or they are your normal average teenagers with normal average problems set in present day, etc., etc.

    I don't like these fanfiction because the author ultimately changes the characters' past and everything that made them who they are. I'm a sole believer that the only thing separating one person from another is their experience (okay, their biological predisposition also plays a part, but these predispositions will mostly occur when people are living in an environment where it allows these predispositions to develop), thus, by changing a characters' experience, or what has happened in CANON, you are in effect making a completely different person, where the only thing that is recognizable is the characters names. Thus, you might as well be writing original fiction.

    When I read fanfiction I want to read about the CANON characters involved in adventures with ALL of the CANON experience and memories that made them who they are. I don't want to read fanfiction where the only thing that is similar to my loved characters is the way they look and their names. For example, I like reading post-series fanfiction, which I know is classified as AU by some, these fanfiction I like because the characters are still themselves with all the memories of what has happened to them in the past (i.e. during the series), they act accordingly to what happened to them, or at least act in a way that is similar to ways similar to past actions.

    In conclusion, no, this is not an attack on people who write this type of AU or people who like reading them; it is just a statement on my own personal taste. Okies, I think that's enough ranting on my part.

    I'm slightly tipsy. Dad and I managed to demolish half a bottle of whiskey. Yum, whiskey. We've been discussing about Globalisation, economics and domestic/foreign policies of several countries. I love my dad, I love my parents.

    I'm currently attemting to make PoT icons. Altho I think the outcome is just slightly skewed. Hmm.

    People, feed me fics. Rec me good stuff. Come on. I'll practically give anything a go. However, if it's a Sesho/Kagome fic I don't want to know. Inuyasha/Kagome 4EVA!!!

    There should be more good fanfiction available in certain fandoms. Here's a list of series that deserve some good attention damn it;

    Shaman King
    Houshin Engi

    Here's just a few of the series that get overlooked by much of the good authors. I'm not saying there aren't any good author in the respective series, but it's really starting to depress me the amount of crap that get written or NOT written in some of the series. I'm just annoyed at the fact that I can't find any readable fanfiction for the above series, or good fanfiction in the fandoms that I haven't re-read a million times already.

    I just want to find a batch of good fics based on any of the above fandoms; it can be het, slash, or with no relationship issues at all, just pure action and plot. I just want something GOOD. So, people, help? Links? Recs? Want to talk to me about any of the mentioned series? Opinions?

    Pretty darn Long Game Quiz: For my Name is Procrastination )

    You got to love procrastination. But at least I got in approx 4 hours of psych reading. Go me. Although two of those hours I was slightly delirious. No longer groggy and the world is no longer tilting, but my throat feel raw, and the coughs have started.

    Does anyone know where I might be able to find 'Butterfly' the Japanese op to Digimon? And if they can show me the way to the piano version of 'Butterfly' I'll be forever grateful. It's one of my all time favourite songs, and the piano piece is just gorgeous.

    Tales I want to Read

    There are certain types of characters and themes in stories that I'm more attached to than others. Lead characters and the fulfillment of their dreams/quest/hopes are one re-occuring theme that I fall for everytime (given that the writing is good). It's the chance to see the young heroes change, to see them mature that lures me to their stories.

    In other words, it isn't the destination, but the journey and its effect on the hero that I'm fascinated with. You see, at the beginning the young hero will be brash, often obnoxious, although still kind. Above all, he MUST have a dream, a hope that he want more than anything else in life. So he go out into the real world to achieve this dream. And that's when the fun begin ^__^

    Perhaps it's destiny, perhaps it's their sheer will and charisma, whatever it amy be people will come to them for inspiration, for protection. And the hero will help, because he's the sort of guy whom you'd give your life too, because he sure will give up his life for you. And really, he has.

    I want to see them experience new things, meet lasting friends and know suffering. People they love will die, people they trust will betray them, and sometime the two are the same. I want to see the experience change them; make them harder, colder, and more ruthless. They'll kill, not because they want to but because they have to, lives depend on him, and sacrifices have to be made. Yet, despite the changes, they are still kind, and much more forgiving than they should be, but that's why I love them in the first place.

    And after the dust have settled, and the evil have been vanquished, and the people that can be saved have been saved, he will be offered power, recognition, a chance to rule. All the things that he had wanted before the adventure began, but it won't do anymore, he has changed, he have experienced loss, and instead of giving them a formal answer, he'll sneak away into the sunset without telling anyone.

    The young boy has matured beyond his years, and the experience he has gained on his journey has changed him forever from that brash youth into someone sadder, and so much more dangerous. After all he has done, after all that he has experienced, all he want is to live in peace, to live in annoymousity.

    So, I want tales of change, of innocence to maturity tainted by sadness, love, and the experience of a gruelling quest. I don't want the endings of heroes living as kings ruling his country. I want an ending where the hero leaves behind the petty squabbling, the rule of a land and take on a journey to see the world, to experience new things, to live. And maybe with him will be one of his companions that accompanied him on the quest, someone who understand him, someone who loves him for who he is; not the hero, but the person, someone who will journey with him through the lands, a companion until his dying day.

    That is the type of story I want to read.
