I haven't read everything in Crossovering and Femslashex, but I think I've read everything in fandoms I know and the original works with tropes that appeal to me.

In Crossovering, I want to mention that [personal profile] sovay said that my gift fic Frank & the Phoenix is perfectly readable without knowing David Blaize (it's a crossover with Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Frank Maddox/Newt Scamander) and actually, I think that as long as you are familiar with the Harry Potter-verse, it should be fine. Other Crossovering stories I particularly liked:

And Bide the Danger (6764 words) by Anonymous
Fandom: Harry Potter - J. K. Rowling, Chronicles of Narnia - C. S. Lewis
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: Creator Chose Not To Use Archive Warnings
Relationships: Amelia Bones/Susan Pevensie, Amelia Bones & Edgar Bones, Aslan & Susan Pevensie, Amelia Bones & Alastor Moody, Edgar Bones/Original Female Character(s)
Additional Tags: Crossovers & Fandom Fusions, The Problem of Susan, Temporal Paradox, Department of Mysteries, Dark Character, Deus Ex Machina, Investigations
Summary: Susan Pevensie: former Unspeakable, legendary beauty, possible Dark witch. A young Amelia Bones, eager to make her mark on MLE, has just been assigned to track her down. But the further Amelia proceeds with her investigation, the more questions she uncovers - especially once she meets Susan herself.

The Start of a Long Summer (1676 words) by Anonymous
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Avatar: The Last Airbender, Chronicles of Narnia - C. S. Lewis
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Azula (Avatar), Tumnus
Additional Tags: Crossover, Attempted Kidnapping
Summary: Azula steps through a wardrobe to find a kidnapping faun and a wintry kingdom ripe for regime change.

There are also two lovely artworks for due South/Lost, and although I'm not familiar with Lost I certainly can recognize the dS characters in Bob Pays a Visit to the Travelers and Kenzi Meets Diefenbaker.

In the Femslashex collection, I particularly liked these:

The Part of Her Hair (10596 words) by Anonymous
Fandom: Pride and Prejudice - Jane Austen
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Mary Bennet/Original Female Character
Characters: Mary Bennet, Original Female Character, Lydia Bennet, Kitty Bennet
Additional Tags: Falling In Love, Family Bonding
Summary: Miss Gibson said, “In the spirit of truthful admission, Miss Bennet, I intend to spend some time devising the right question for you. If I may see you again?”

Why did that sound strange? But she always sounded strange to people herself. And it was a familiar kind of strangeness, as if it were something she had heard before, only not like this.

Mary, constrained by the principles of truth, could only admit that she would enjoy that very much.

A Golden Thread Between Hearts (1633 words) by Anonymous
Fandom: Seasons of Glass and Iron - Amal El-Mohtar
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Tabitha/Amira
Characters: Tabitha (Seasons of Glass and Iron), Amira (Seasons of Glass and Iron)
Additional Tags: Post-Canon, First Kiss
Summary: Tabitha and Amira travel, and grow, and love.

(The canon for the second is a freely-available short story I recced before: Seasons of Glass and Iron by Amal El-Mohtar, which is f/f fairytale fantasy with an edge of grimdark.)

There are actually many other excellent stories in both collections, and I encourage you to browse!

I've only needed these for years, oi ... Takes a looong time to build up to the stupid lenses I need, though.

That said! My prescription has actually improved again, which, well -- given what I was like as a wee polyp and what they did to me for years to forestall disaster, improvement is always a bonus. Also I apparently have a clean bill of health as far as my eyes indicate.

Unfortunately now I'm sitting here with insanely dilated pupils and everything is wtf, lol

Netflix to Produce 30 'New' Anime Series for 2018 Release

Well, this confirms (for the time being anyway) that nu!StS is going to release next year, for what that's worth. Of course -- Netflix being Netflix -- fuck only knows it could be at any given time during next year, blah.


Directly related, we have an English voice cast for the main Bronzes and Saori, may the gods save us all.

 well, I finished my SFBB entry! at the end it might go down in quality a little because I have not been feeling well and I lost enthusiasm.
I think i invented a whole new generation 3 for Phantasy Star 3...

([personal profile] china_shop posted about the origin of her name (see: the lyrics of You Had Time by Ani DiFranco), and it's exam time for me now, and this is my exam regret song, so it seems appropriate to listen to it now xD)

i'm not entirely fond of the piano intro of this song - the piano sounds high-pitched somehow, and i have a long dislike for high-pitched sounds - but overall, it sets the tone for the rest of the song quite well.

this song takes its time (heh) and is soft and mournful and the lyrics are sharper than needles and it is my kind of song.

exams are nigh )

You may get: Fic is very likely! At least a drabble 83 Or meta, or -- depending on what you poke me about -- meta burbling, or recs, or gamerules bits/suggestions or the like. There's a chance~ of icon(s) but as you can see from most of mine, my icons are kind of the opposite of fancy, lol

Please leave me: A fandom, a character, a fannish question about some detail or other, you can try with a ship but I kind of suck at writing shipping things that read as shippy (but I will try!) -- multiple requests are fine, I'll get at least one of them tackled for you *grin* You can leave actual prompts, or just a fandom/whatever, whichever floats your boat. Or you can just say "Fic or Treat!", roll your dice and take your chances ;3

Light is on for: [community profile] monthlysupergo folks, flisters, folks tossed at this post by other people, most anyone really -- knock yourselves out 83

Fandoms, etc.: Azure Striker Gunvolt, Rockman/Mega Man (Classic, X, Zero), Saint Seiya (any flavour but Episode G and Next Dimension), Final Fantasy (original, II, IV, VII, Dissidia, Theatrhythm, Brave Exvius), Bravely series (including Four Heroes Of Light), Gundam Wing/00/SEED Astray, Fire Emblem (Jugdral, Archenea including Awakening time period, Heroes), Transformers Sunbow!G1/Dreamwave/"generic G1", Kingdom Hearts, King of Fighters, Voltron Force, Tales of Destiny, Robotech (all generations), Yoroiden Samurai Troopers/Ronin Warriors, Casshern SINS, Infini-T Force, Seven Princes of the Thousand-Year Labyrinth, RG Veda -- my AO3 is a good place to see possibilities, I spose? Or feel free to poke me and check, if you have an idea because I could probably make this list even longer, lol.

Other stuff: any of my original works, Ancient Egypt (especially Dynasty 18), dinosaurs and other extinct beasties, food and anthropology thereof, bees, Legend of the Five Rings, Exalted, D&D, worldbuilding

Other info: I don't do porn, because I don't get it and therefore fail at it and want to do decently for your treats, folks ;3 And aside from that, my hard DNWs request-wise are basically no rape (and don't pull 'noncon' on me, that's still rape) and no painfully-obvious issuefic-type requests. Aside from those, knock yourselves out ~

That dawning moment of horror when you realize that everything that annoyed the living fuck out of you in FE: Fates' incomprehensible, nonexistent "plot" is also everything that annoys the living fuck out of you about Legendary Defender.

Except LD is even worse and doesn't even have Laslow, Odin or Kaze. Or a ragamuffin in a lobster suit.

... when you are eternally grateful that fandom --

-- where by "fandom" I mean "the network of this particular strain of fanfiction-and-et cetera-creating fans who like to think they are all that exists of 'fannishness'" --

-- has consistently, insistently ignored even the very existence of one of your favorite new things, because that means you are spared the screaming harpy madness of "fandom" going frothing insane at the very existence of one of your favorite characters due to "fandom's" inability, these days, to appreciate either nuance or the fact that said character is already having the piss taken out of them by the rest of the cast because this shit is funny.

So I am content to stay in my little nook over here enjoying the thing. No greater fandom presence required or desired, thanks, sad as it may be to say so.

This has taken me so long to do, I feel almost embarrassed to post it, because unlike some of the more detailed ones I've done, this one was straight-forward, but it was lingering just because I couldn't work out who to cast as one character. (I'm still not sure who it was I must have had in mind, but I found a suitable stand-in. After, er, nearly all year...)


From the [community profile] isurrendered meme, [personal profile] john_amend_all gave me this prompt. If I had remembered that he threatened to do this several years ago, I would have tried to ward it off, but I didn't, so here we are:

One of those obscure centuries-old cults has a ritual: Once every hundred years, on the night of the winter solstice, the chosen one must stand at a particular place (where ley lines converge) and will become an inspired bard and prophet.

... Except that since the last ritual, an office block has been built on the site, and the mystic powers end up being bestowed on the coffee machine. Hilarity, as they say, ensues.



Which is coming to an LJ near you some time soon as:

carla bruni is a surprisingly good singer. she has this rasp in her voice that straight up KILLS me. i am in love. but otoh i'm in love with different things everyday. but ot3h isn't that the way to live?

another surprising thing about her: there's no politics in the comment threads. i was expecting stuff about sarkozy and the state of french politics, but it was all about the music. i don't know whether to be thrilled at the niceness of people or sad at my cynicism and background sexism-ish thing idk what to call it.

i'm obsessed send help.

in other news: i'm making lists of things i want to do and things i'm doing for the next month or so. i suspect i won't be v productive while sorting things out, but that's ok. inktober will probably stretch into november seeing as i've only done 5 days so far, but no one's judging, right? c: this is a thing i'm doing to make me happy. it's not going to become a stressor because i won't let it.

i found a good reference for the thing i want to do for day 5's prompt! i should start uploading these things to my chaos tumblr maybe xD

also, i've sorted my phone contacts, which is currently a mess of my ENTIRE FAMILY's contacts, all through the A's. There are a LOT of desi names that start with A. I predict that I should be able to knock off B and C tomorrow.
