matrixrefugee: the word 'refugee' in electric green with a background of green matrix code (Hey_Joe)
At last, I posted another of these, and while I hesitated about how to write it, I'm pleased with how it came out.

A tiny pink rosebud and a thick thorny stem without any blossoms at all for Kenpachi Zaraki and Yachiru

Author's Note: I'm almost embarrassed to write this fic, not because of the pairing involved, but because the bar on writing it and writing it with quality and attention to detail has been set very high and this by one of the people whose writing caused me to reconsider slash as an artform. But I'm rather proud of how well it turned out. Written for "Crowdog66" who requested "attraction". This came out as a sister-fic to "Joe as Foster-Father, but precedes Archive Retrieval

matrixrefugee: the word 'refugee' in electric green with a background of green matrix code (Fight Club -- Swedish furniture)
Looking at the list of fics and I'm afraid I'm going to have to cut one of the request fics, since it is not coming out the way that I want it to. I hate doing that, since I feel like I'm letting the requester down, but I'd rather not inflict them with the bit of crud that my mind spewed out. Trust me: this is not me being emo, this is me having a bad time writing something. I'm human and I've written stuff that I would not want to show to the world, which is why you haven't seen the really poorly done stuff.

Thus I have only two fics left to write/finish writing and several to type. Things seem to have slowed down in a Certain RP due to people being on hiatus, so this gets a handle on distraction that was getting in the way of me typing up some of those fics.

I had a couple of errands to take care of, including going to the pet shop to get dried fruit for Flurry the budgie (and saying hello to some yellow budgies that are likely his half-brothers and sisters), and I tried to squeak in some coffeeshop writing, but I had to leave due to a very noisy screaming two year old who was running around and being obnoxious. I did, however, think to myself " 'The Screaming Two Year Olds' would be a good name for a novelty band..."

Hey look! A Fanfic Rose! Trust me, I have not forgotten this challenge, I've just been dragging my heels about it, and I feel really bad about this. I've had to cut a few fics that I wanted to post, if I'm going to get this done by March 15th, aka White Day in Japan.

Author's Note: Okay, a bit of a corny title, but I've always liked the phrase and I think it fits this pair. Written for [livejournal.com profile] tomboy_typist who requested a fic based on the prompt "wine". I have to admit, this was a very hard fic to write since I hold "Uncle John"'s magnum opus in such high esteem that I don't know if I could possibly do it justice; but I rose to the challenge and I'm glad that I did!

Yep, I am still working on this challenge, it's just being slower to produce than the Christmas challenge, for some odd reason. I fudged on the "engagement ring, wedding band" prompt and made this into the much less committal "jewelry", since it's a high school story.

Rating: PG

Author's Note: Technically this is a younger!Muraki/Ukyou story, bit it turned into an unrequited younger!Rika/Ukyou story as well. The idea came to me when I was re-reading Vol. 6 of the manga: I love how Rika and Chidsuru get a second chance there, even though Chidsuru is now a shinigami. And I can so totally see Rika crushing on Ukyou back when the bunch of them were in high school: it's hard not to, since Ukyou is so kyoot (just don't let her boyfriend/fiance find out that you've got a thing for her: depending on when it occurs, you could end up dead or worse, as one of his patients...). And I had to stop and go "Awwww..." every so often while I was writing a younger, sadder, and gentler Muraki: he's very different here, as he hasn't yet given in to his inner demons... though there's a hint that not all is well with him...

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
'Where did you get that necklace? It's beautiful,' Rika asked.... )
matrixrefugee: the word 'refugee' in electric green with a background of green matrix code (Black rose)
I have to admit to having a huge soft spot for Rukia Kuchiki: next to Death in the Sandman Comics (and of cours, Tsuzuki in Yami no Matsuei), I think she's about the cutest little psychopomp ever -- and she's as strong as she is cute. I've often wondered just what she really thinks of Ichigo...

Rating: PG (brief freakish humor)

Author's Note: A bit of an in-joke in the title: it's actually the name of a Yami no Matsuei gallery website, but I figured I'd borrow it as a teasing nickname for "Mr. Hat-and-Clogs"'s odd little shop. Probably set somewhat early on in the series.

Author's Note: Written for [livejournal.com profile] ladyneferankh and based on the prompt "hugs; the best moments are with you": This started off as a sketch, but it turned into a follow-up to "David's First Christmas", but I wouldn't really call it a sequel, since the stories aren't technically interconnected, though they do take place in the same alternate continuity in which David has returned to his family and is continuing to discover the world around him.

This has, so far, been the most embarrassing -- and exciting -- to type. I've never written in this fandom before, and I've never really written this kind of relationship before, either, so I'm delighted to have had my boundaries challenged.

"In Trutina"

Author's Note: This the first time I have ever attempted femslash and so I'm heading into virgin territory (hah!), and while I'm a little shaky about writing this fic, I love the pairing too much to resist writing it.

"One Touch of the Enemy"

by "Matrix Refugee"

Author's Note: Written for [livejournal.com profile] crowdog66 and based on the prompt "caresses; every touch you give me steals my breath away"; it's set fairly early on in her exquisite "Degrees of Seperation" universe, during a time when Neo and Smith were separated and Neo sought comfort with the Red King of the Exiles.

By instinct, his hand reached across the silk-covered mattress )
matrixrefugee: the word 'refugee' in electric green with a background of green matrix code (YnM - Muraki Oriya and Ukyou)
Cleaned a bathroom, did some laundry, made the bed for the first time in a few days (since I was crawling into it every chance I got), vacuumed the entire upstairs of the house. My cold seems to have diminished to occasional coughing fits and some congestion, but I am doing immensely better today.

I also managed to write/finish:

--One of my [livejournal.com profile] 30_kisses fics, featuring much-younger versions of Muraki, Ukyou and Oriya: I like writing the college-era version of this trio, since there's a more innocent quality to them (well, the two gents anyway: Ukyou manages to stay innocent without being naive the whole time) Younger!Muraki is a dear to write, but he's rather tragic, since I know this shy, gentle, slightly nerdy fellow is going to vanish almost completely as soon as he gives in to his inner demons. I'm also fond of the big brother/little sister connection between Ukyou and Oriya: I suspect they might have been an item briefly during high school, but they let it fade into "just friends" since her parents didn't approve.

--The darn scene with the King of Hades in the Twhinelite X-over, which might seem like a quiet scene, but winds up being very harrowing for Bella (though she could just be acting all dramatic and emo over it)

--Started drafting a Tatsumi/Mercy (OFC) fic for the 12 Fanfic Roses challenge -- and I've got a baker's dozen of pairing prompts now, to my delight. I'm loving the pairings people have suggested, and a number of them are in fandoms I haven't written before, but never thought to do so, thus the experiment was a rousing success!! I still might throw in a few more of my own, we'll see, but I'd better get cracking writing the ones I've got. Granted, they're mostly going to be flash fics or ficlets, but those are fun to write, albeit harder, since my brain goes into "plot with beginning, middle and end" mode all too often and I have to remind myself that a character sketch can be just as good as a plotted out story. Brian Aldiss based his whole writing career on this very kind of writing (Met him briefly at WorldCon years ago, and for those of you who know him as the author of the story on which "A.I." is based on, he's as sweetly gruffy as Teddy, has as bright-eyed an outlook on the world as David, and he's as polite as Joe -- even has a darling British accent, too.)

Also managed to get in several chapters of "A Game of Thrones" -- I am loving GRRM's style and his characters to the point that my head is doing a little mental voice-casting (either John Hurt or Jeremy Irons as Eddard Stark, Cate Blanchett as Catelyn, Anthony Hopkins as the king) and I'm even imagining a symphonic with subtle metal elements soundtrack, ala "300" or "Beowulf".
matrixrefugee: the word 'refugee' in electric green with a background of green matrix code (A.I. Monica and David)
I just needed a day to goof off and since I haven't been feeling well, today was the perfect time to do it. Thus I spent parts of the day napping or curled up in bed reading, in this case "A Game of Thrones", which is off to a chilling (and impressive) beginning!

I did manage to get a few bits of writing jotted, though nothing major: a few paragraphs here and there on several fics, a few ideas jotted down for future stories. I'm about a third the way through Mercy Falcone's backstory, and I have a feeling I'm going to get gnawed on by Tatsumi fangurlz, since I'm seeing Mercy and him eventually hooking up, "friends with benefits"-style (though it's more of a result of Mercy going into starving to death energy vampire mode and "vamping out" on the poor guy -- and him actually enjoying it in spite of himself. Well, there's a Tatsumi/OFC fic that's at the top of the listing on ff.n, so I'm not alone.

I'm still open to more ideas for the 12 Fanfic Roses. Right now I have about a half dozen between other folks' ideas and my own, but I'd like to make it a full dozen.
matrixrefugee: the word 'refugee' in electric green with a background of green matrix code (NGE Angelic Script)
I have mixed feelings about "Bleach": I like a number of the characters, but sometimes the execution feels a bit problematic for me (pacing issues, absurdly overpowered villains :: Glares in the direction of the Bounts::, plus it's soooo loooong. 167 episodes, two movies and it's still in production. Eesh...). But I like it enough that it's inspired me to write one or two character sketches, including this one...

Rating: PG (brief language)

Author's Note: This is one of those ideas that was just too damn cute not to write, though I imagine if the guy involved knew that anyone found out about it, he'd likely find a way to put them through their paces, especially if they teased him about it. But it seems I like writing incredibly scary anime guys having Pet the Dog or Pet the Morality Pet moments.

I talked about doing a Valentine's Day challenge, and I even stumbled upon a now sadly defunct Valentine's challenge comm. I decided to post to it, but it's questionable how many people will see the fics on there (we'll see what happen). I did like their prompt list, so I decided to lift it (with a few tweaks)

I'm going to do something a little different this time than I did for the 12 Days of Fanfic: I'm going to offer a list of prompts, and you get to match a pairing or a character to them. Doesn't matter if more than one person asks for the same prompt: Prompt list here! )

If anyone wants to add some specifics to their selected prompts, feel free to to so. And they don't have to be romantic pairings, they cam reflect any sort of love: Friendship, family love, parent-child, brother-sister, bromance, romantic friendship, "friends with benefits"
