Pick a trope from this list and provide a fandom/pairing and I’ll tell you something about the story I’d write for that combination (i.e. write a snippet from the story or write !fic or tell you the title and summary for the story I would write). I'm going to qualify this as probably writing a sentence or two using that trope as a prompt, because I know myself and my limitations. ^_^; Feel free to pick a few, if you like. Past and present fandoms are all fair game.

1. genderswap
2. bodyswap
3. drunk!fic
4. huddling for warmth
5. pretending to be married
6. secretly a virgin
7. amnesia
8. cross-dressing
9. forced to share a bed
10. truth or dare
11. historical AU
12. accidental-baby-acquisition
13. apocalypse fic
14. telepathy
15. High School / College AU

Meme, as lifted from [livejournal.com profile] tucuxi:

1. Pick a pairing or a character
2. Ask me my particular head-canon regarding something about them
3. Post to your journal to share your own head-canon
tj_dragonblade: (Gecko Advice)
(but mostly, this is an excuse to experiment with crossposting)

Name any character from any fandom with which I am familiar and I will tell you:

- Why I like them
- Why I don’t
- Favorite episode/scene
- Favorite line
- Favorite outfit
- OTP
- Non-romantic OTP
- Headcanon
- Unpopular opinion
- A wish for them
- An oh-god-please-don’t-ever-happen for them
- 5 words to best describe them
- My nickname for them

Meme-sheepage: Top Ten Fics as Indicated by AO3 Hits (even though I still haven't finished loading my back-catalogue, as it were - by the looks of things, it wouldn't make any difference anyway).

10. Challenging - GaiKaka smuttiness - it does a body good.

9. Sasukelicious - Apparently Sasuke still sells, even (especially?) on crack. I would have expected this to fall higher on the list, given his historical popularity. Then again, it's not smut.

8. Learning to See - NejiNaru non-smut. This is my biggest seller over on ff.net. Surprised (but pleased!) to see it doing so well because this is a woefully underappreciated pairing in my experience.

7. Insipience - NejiNaru smut. Presumably out-performing #8 by virtue of its explicit content.

6. Worth It - KakaIru smut will always sell, obviously - this was written back in 2008 and it's the only entry on this list that's more than a year old. I'm...perversely pleased that it's not #1 nor even top 5 despite being the most prolific M/M pairing in this fandom. ^_^;

5. Steam - YamaSai smut FTW. Terribly pleased that this one made it onto the list at all let alone broke the top 5 when the pairing has such a small following. Even if I have to assume that the only reason it's doing so well is because I posted the AO3 link alongside the LJ link in the comms so it's gotten directed traffic beyond the random AO3-originated searching.

4. Flash Fics - This surprises me, as none of the five pairings written are rabidly popular in my observation and these are terribly brief anyway. I'm guessing it's either the Sasuke tag and/or perhaps the NejiNaru tag that's driving the hit count, since both of my other NejiNaru fics are also in the top 10. Maybe I'm wrong about the pairing being underappreciated. Maybe instead its fans just tend to be the quiet reader type over the writer/artist type, in general.

3. Affirmation - KakaNaru smut. I'm a bit surprised; I had no idea this pairing had anything more than limited niche popularity.

2. Past the Limits - Apparently KakaNaru smut sells well.

1. Delayed - Apparently, GaiKaka smut sells better. \o/ This does benefit from link-directed traffic as well, but it's also my most popular fic over on Y-gal (out of the select few posted there) so it's hard to say where the hit count would sit without that boost.

No surprise that almost all of these are smutfics. I personally think some of my non-smut that didn't make the list is better, but fandom and human nature being what they are...ehhh.

Hit-counts are considerably lower on the Saiyuki fic I've back-posted; half of them don't even break into double digits. I wonder if it's an age-of-fic thing or a size-of-fandom thing, or even a where-people-in-a-fandom-look-for-fic thing. Curious. Not expecting anything different when I get my GW fics loaded up, either. It would be awesome if there was a way to track LJ hits and mL hits and consolidate all fic-activity data from all across the web and get a truly accurate historical look at which fics are/have been the most popular. I'd like to see how my Saiyuki and GW fics in their heydays compare.

Since the final week here of January marks the anniversary of my discovery of YamaSai, it is apparently time once again to re-visit that old meme wherein one posts a sentence or a snippet from any/all works in progress. Because holy sh*t but I've been productive this year, more-so than any other single year since I started ficcing (in quantity of fics finished/posted, anyway; in terms of word count, I'm at least rivaling the productivity of my newbie days ten+ years ago) and yet, despite all that I've managed to put out, I still find myself with a heavily-loaded WIP folder, without even considering the things I haven't started yet or all the sitting-idle pieces from previous/other fandoms.

Speaking of. Had a mental sit-down with myself and said, 'Look. Really. Be honest with yourself. What are the odds you're ever really going to Do Something with the fics that were started back in 2002? 2005?' And I argued, and pointed to finished things that took me five years or more to wrap up. To which I conceded that yes, it's entirely possible that one day I will actually hit the right combination of time/interest/inspiration to breathe life back into the old plot bunnies, but it's not likely to be soon. Regardless, all of them have appeared on prior postings of this meme (some on all the prior postings), and there's really nothing new for snippeting at this point. So.

Naruto only this year, then. Even if a couple of the not-quite-as-old-as-the-others Saiyuki fics are starting to call to me again.

Did this meme awhile back and saw it come up again so I figured Why Not; answers haven't changed for Saiyuki/GW fandoms so I didn't re-post them (the curious can follow the link) but Naruto and DS9 needed updating, A:tLA probably should've been included the first time around and I figured Soul Eater was worth adding.

As seen a couple different places on the flist. Meant to be like an entry a day for a month, or something, but it works far better for me to dump it all in one go.

30 days of Music meme )

I-I've changed my default icon for the first time since like...2005, I think. I feel like I've betrayed something/one somehow, and don't know that I won't change it back. We'll see. ^_^;;

Writing is forcefully reasserting its place in my life whether I've got the time for it or not. So. In an effort to organize for myself what's really currently on the WIP list, and hopefully inspire a bit of forward momentum on any of them as time allows, I re-visit that old meme wherein one posts a sentence or a snippet from any/all works in progress.

Swiped from [livejournal.com profile] despina_moon and also packed into a single go instead of spread out over the full month:

30 Days Fanfic Questions Meme )
tj_dragonblade: (Julian Heart)
Another from the memes-that-never-got-posted-before-I-had-the-kid file:

A little while back few months ago by now, [livejournal.com profile] kispexi2 started a fun little meme-post where you post up pics of all the characters you've crushed on aside from current fixations (this is why you won't find anyone from Saiyuki on this list). Flisters can then comment naming characters they recognize, where they're from and who played them as applicable. Other people have done a similar 'Eye Candy' meme of any famous person crushed on; this I guess is sort of my blending of the two. I use the term 'crush' rather loosely, also, in most cases.

Hopefully the distinctions between character and actor are clear, where applicable. Arranged as close to chronologically as I can accurately recall, though there's a lot of overlap and blending:

Jeff has of course been taking pics and video of the baby at home, and over the weekend he showed me the footage he caught of Octavian jamming to Rammstein. ♥ He reportedly likes Rammstein and other such metal, but doesn't like rap. ^_^ I wonder how much bearing my own musical choices during pregnancy have on his exhibited 'tastes'.

I so wish I could afford to stay home with him until at least his first birthday. T_T

Oh, and, still unposted from that meme awhile back where one comments with some catch-phrase to solicit questions from the poster, then answers those questions in their own journal:

Randomly, there's a baby kicking about in my belly. It's an awesome, awesome feeling. He's going to be a night-owl like his brother and his parents, I can tell.

Lifted this from...somebody. Ages and ages ago.

Lifted from [livejournal.com profile] zalia, because it's better for my mental health than stewing over the latest administrative clusterfuck perpetrated by this school:

80 Questions )

*sigh* At least the instructor, being from...Iran, I believe he said, is interesting to listen to on a purely linguistic-appreciation level.
tj_dragonblade: (ChibiTenpou)
Apparently that 'Words!' meme is still going around, and has now evolved to commenting with the phrase 'Curiouser and curiouser' to indicate that one would like to play. Leave such a comment if you like, and I'll give you five words that I associate with you, which you can then post in your journal and talk about.

Combining lists from [livejournal.com profile] aliaswestgate and [livejournal.com profile] nouvellebrielle on account of slight overlap. Also, a couple of these words popped up in an earlier round so some of this may sound somewhat familiar. ^_^;

More Words )

Lifted from [livejournal.com profile] nouvellebrielle:

100 Questions )
tj_dragonblade: (Gojyo NiiBunny)
Seen in various places about the flist:

Ask me one fandom-related question in the comments. This can be fandom-specific, general, or about fandom/lj stuff/fic writing/etc. in general. Favorite character, favorite moment, unpopular opinion, something about a fic of mine... whatever. Wackiness encouraged. Once I answer, you can ask again.
tj_dragonblade: (ChibiTenpou)
From that 'Comment to shout 'Words!' and I'll give you 5 that I associate with you so you can talk about them in your own LJ' meme, from [livejournal.com profile] entitys: 5 words )


And this meme:
* Leave me a comment saying "Resistance is Futile."
* I'll respond by asking you four questions so I can satisfy my curiosity
* Update your journal with the answers to the questions.
* Include this explanation in the post and offer to ask other people questions

5 Fandoms, 10 Questions )
tj_dragonblade: (ChibiTenpou)
Because these are always fun, it's been more than a year since last time I did this, and the first day of class is always a sloooow progression of self-introduction and syllabus review (and yet not conducive to doing anything I need to be doing online), some no-brain-power-required memeage:

1) Post a list of up to 20 books/movies/anime/TV shows/video games/bands etc. that you've had an obsessive fannish love or interest in at some time in your life.
2) Have your f-list guess your favorite character/member from each item.
3) When someone guesses correctly, strike through the item and put the name of your favorite character next to it.


Bear in mind only a few of these qualify as 'obsessively fannish'; the rest are just passingly fannish and there to fill out the twenty.

1. Saiyuki Jiipu/Hakuryuu
2. Saiyuki Gaiden Goujun
3. Gundam Wing Wufei
4. Naruto
5. Star Trek: DS9
6. XMen
7. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
8. Rurouni Kenshin
9. Avatar: The Last Airbender
10. Stargate: Atlantis
11. Pet Shop of Horrors Count D
12. Yami no Matsui
13. Genju no Seiza
14. Wolf's Rain Tsume
15. Wild Adapter Kubota
16. Bus Gamer
17. Heat Guy J
18. Demon Diary
19. Vampire Chronicles (Anne Rice)
20. Samurai Jack

I swear, HVAC in this school is completely borked. Classrooms on one side of this hallway are freezing, and on the other they're stuffy and (almost) too warm.
