Sticky: Introduction

Hi! This Livejournal is mainly used for posting my fanfiction. You can take a look at my tags or my fanfiction.net account to see what I've written. I am no longer updating my memories as of April 9, 2013.

I am also flonnebonne on Dreamwidth. I consider that to be my primary account now. If you have a Dreamwidth account, please add me to your circle over there! I'm slowly trying to move my friendslist from LJ over to Dreamwidth.

In general, feel free to add me to your friendlist/circle, comment on any of my posts, or just lurk. I hardly ever lock anything and I don't bite (at least not online I don't).

Final Fantasy XV

My little brother and I finished the game a few weeks ago, and it was fun! Definitely not what I expected (which was a Kingdom Hearts clone), but a pleasant surprise, not a nasty one.

I have a sneaking suspicion that part of the reason the development cycle took so long was because the creators had to spend a few years clawing Nomura's influence out of the game and then figuring out what to do with the remaining mess. As my little brother put it, "I'm glad it didn't end up being a game based on nothing but some old character designs Nomura did," which is what it looked like it was going to be for the longest time. There IS something of substance here, although what that substance is is...weird. 

Spoilery talk about FFXV's themesCollapse )
In conclusion, 8.5 out of 10!

Princess Nine!!!

If there is a sports anime god, one day Princess Nine will get a second season.

(Also, for years I thought this was a TENNIS series lol.)

Interhigh 2017: Sign-ups are open!

Interhigh 2017, a sports anime/manga fanfic and fanart exchange, is open for sign-ups! 

For more information, see the challenge profile.

I signed up! I am usually kind of intimidated by challenges because, uh, I don't like reading the instructions, but Interhigh has an easy-to-understand sign-up form and is pretty low-pressure (one 1000-word fic or one 600x400 pixel fanart for your recipient). And it's sports anime! I like sports anime.

I seem to have deleted a 5000-word FFIV story when I was moving files around. Only the much, much older version with like 500 words is still around. I can't find the new version in my Dropbox, Google Drive, or One Drive garbage bins...or my desktop or laptop recycle bins...I must have saved over it. 

Argh. It was a crappy story, and I wrote it before Get Your Words Out started, but it is still kind of killing me that it's gone.

Just did my January check-in for [community profile] getyourwordsout, and I've written 13,345 words so far this year. Doing well on my 75,000 word goal!  

I'm including blog posts and long comments in word count, but most of what I've written so far is fic. I think I am sometimes being wordier than I need to be at times because of the word count requirement, but meh, at least I am writing.

Get Your Words Out - current word count

Total writing word count for 2017 as of January 8: 7184 words 

-2500 words of the draft of a Chihayafuru fic (on paper)
-4633 words of sports anime meta + responses to comments 
-151 words below lol 

I'm doing pretty well on my 75,000 word goal! I've been on vacation from work, however, so we'll see how I do when things go back to normal. 

Working on paper has definitely been helpful, but the thought of typing up my drafts is daunting. I hate typing. I've tried using my iPhone's dictation feature, but it's pretty slow, considering that you have to say "quote" and "end quote" and "next paragraph" an awful lot whenever you're doing dialogue (which I do a lot of). You also have to to back and fix all the mistakes that are inevitably introduced when you use voice-to-text--especially uncommon names, which I also have a lot of -_- 

I'm working on making my typing setup better (keyboard tray, wrist rests, using inverted colours more, program to force me to rest...maybe I'll get a mechanical keyboard at home too), but we'll see how it goes.
