This is most of my personal GW fic rant, which is not so much a manifesta as a drinking game.

I really only posted this to try out my new icon. Please don't anyone make a voodoo doll of me...When I eventually release some GW fic into the nets, you will see I commit plenty of infelicities of my own. Just not these particular ones.

Saw "Prince of Persia" the other day. A disappointment. I already know, from Robin Hood, that kohl-wearing bald people are evil. In fact, the whole time I was thinking: I really want to read Outlands now. I want to leave this theater and read Outlands instead. And then I was thinking, Ryou is right over there, with that turban, with his face turned. And then I just mentally replaced whoever was talking to Darius Dustan with Leyam, and it turned out pretty well! The court of the King of Assyria took a liking to the saffron-robed man of great awesomeness and many knives, and after a few prayers to Hygeaia he embarked on a long and distinguished career with the Hounds.

The previews, on the other hand, were like awesome ladled with awesomesauce. Avatar? Check! It becomes clearer and clearer that the movie is probably a distilled Season 1, which means not Aang and not Zuko but Sokka gets to do all the heroic things like having and losing the multiple girls. But the Blue Spirit was there. The BLUE SPIRIT WAS THERE!! FIGHTING! If only I had clearly distinguished an Iroh, perhaps drinking tea, my life would be complete.

Also, there was a Scott Pilgrim movie preview! There were seven evil exes! Hey, if there is someday going to be a comic-book-based movie that is good, this might be it. And I must say I REALLY LIKE the idea of making movies of indie comics, because Strangers in Paradise has room for many many movies, not to mention ELFQUEST. ELFQUEST.

Lessee.. there was a Tron movie, where clearly the mainframe has found 4ch and Bad Things have happened... and even the Eclipse preview inspired me with a semi-desire to go see it. Who can say no to beautiful taiga surroundings containing wolves the size of Volkswagens happily munching Seattleite vamps, compostable cappuccino cups still clutched in their cold hands? It's hard! It's like every single preview was for the kind of movie I like to see. America must be in need of some escapism or somethings. Excellent.

In other news, the tab containing The Arrangement, Epilogue Part II, has been rewound baaack to The Arrangement, Chapter 1, Part 1. Oh yes. Last time, I didn't skim any of the Breaking Storm chapters either. I swear, I am going to have this fic memorized in a couple years.

So, as I've been saying for years, or at least months, or at least thinking loudly, a Freeport/Firefly crossover would practically write itself. Let's see if that is true!

Title: "Layover"
Author: szzzt
Rating: Worksafe for Companions and implied 2x5
Warnings: None.
Summary: Gundam Wing (Freeport)/Firefly. They say Freeport's the last best chance for the crazy and the desperate; Serenity just wants to do the job and get paid.
A/N: This is very short, just for fun and [personal profile] kkamagwi! Might be continued and perhaps develop a plot, or might languish. But I have the feeling that if I am shown more Firefly eps, continuation may spontaneously occur...!
Edit 2010/04/27: Annnnd continuation in comments, yo.

She should have known better, but even a professional could be surprised. )

Title: "Wufei: In Esse"
Artist: szzzt
Rating: G
Warnings: None
Song/Theme: Au Revoir Simone - Shadows
Summary: Small portrait of Chang Wufei.
A/N: Done in Paint, as a way to jog me into writing more of the fic that goes along with it. So far, working. Heavy stuff goes down in parts 1 & 2, and this is protagonist-kun at the end of part 3, after he gets his ducks in a row and goes off to have lemons kick ass.

Too small for a thumbnail... )

Oh yeah~

So on Saturday, the file holding the Current Story tied and then surpassed the largest file in my Written For Fun folder. (And that formerly largest file is not a story--it is a giant hoard of poems and fine quotes I have found trolling the Nets.) 94KB! Someone give me a cigar.

Did you know that 17,500 words is the length of a very short novella? I'm there. Plus there's another 1500 or 2000 words I haven't typed in yet... Oooh... *rubs hands in glee* (Those of you who are prolific, ignore me wigging out. I'll just be over here adoring my first story-shaped thing of length some more.)

I also have the lion's part of a lemon. I'm not sure what to think about this, but since I knew it was coming and was a bit worried about making it convincing, the hindbrain has settled on massive glee. I tell the hindbrain, "You can't tell if it's convincing! Besides, you need to write the lead-up scene now currently tagged only as 'something SPECTACULARLY KICKASS,' once you figure out what it is!" The hindbrain doesn't care. The hindbrain wants to write lovingly detailed explosions that conveniently kill off the bad guys and trap our heroes in an elevator with nothing but a futon, or something, yeah maybe I will tell the hindbrain to go take a hike for that scene, except of course for judging the correct degree of spectacular kickassery.

[personal profile] kkamagwi, you may be pleased to note that nowhere is "koi" used as a term of endearment in said lemon. That will not actually decrease its average prevalence in the fandom. *cries*

Ergh

When I come home, why can't I be stricken with the compulsion to write happy stories? Instead of the one I'm writing, which is like distilled ow, and which keeps getting longer? Or even to finish anything before I start something else?

*Prods ow story, which is still there, sullen and squicky and sort of breathtaking, just as it has been there awaiting writing every time it was prodded this last...entire...week and a half. God, it feels like thirty years.*

This story started after I got up from pretty wrenching dreams on a Sunday, started writing, kept writing, and managed to snatch a whole three hours of sleep before I had to stop writing for work -- Work?! What is this? I have to stop?! -- where it writhed under my skin all day and I was nonetheless elated. Apparently I wrote 4200 words that day and morning.

And it hasn't gone away. I'm used to stories flaring and burning out. This one is still there. I've managed to drag myself a little closer back to normal human mindset and even do some other things that aren't writing this stupid story, but it's there, and if I listen, more of it comes out. Un-fricking-believable. A new experience for me.

I'd be happier, I guess, if it was less disturbing than that essay I wrote in junior year in Iago-voice after we read Othello, explaining that he'd done it because he loved Othello and Desdemona so much. I think of that sometimes and wonder what the teacher made of it. I was a bit flustered, turning it in, but not ashamed...because I knew it was good.

Yeah well, this story, I dunno if it will get finished since the damn thing keeps getting longer and I persist in trying to write all parts of it at once... I'm not sure 'cause what do I know, but I think it's good.

So I committed art Friday night -- on dead trees! There were Copics! -- and I'm still in the "sappily-in-love-with-it" phase. Also, clearly I have it bad for Wufei.

I doubt I'll post the whole piece anywhere since it's a gift - and I only took a photo since I don't have a scanner - but I had to make an avatar. (See "in love," above.) So here.
szzzt: Wufei, ready to find the knot and cut it. (wufei)
...That clicking noise?

That's me, finding the first chapter of The Arrangement, by Maldoror.
For the third time.

I don't do that. I don't reread novel-length stories three times in a month and a half! I let them lay for at least a year!
Damn it.

But if you, dear reader, have not yet lost your sanity to this fic which starts with "made of oh, wow," graduates to "made of awesome" and layers on that "made of incredible" as it approaches endgame, then for god's sake don't do what I did and start the Breaking Storm chapters at 2AM when you have to be at work the next day. That is all.
