SASO BAIT 2017

[personal profile] horchata
So!! Wanna bait me for SASO? Here's stuff I am interested in:

IN GENERAL
Here's a list of the things I really like writing:
poetry, especially w/formal structures and meter; meta!; angst that comes from internal conflict; sadness from the outside; magical realism; magic in general; stories about people drowning or almost-drowning (hello the Matusoka curse); Heel Face Turns; unconventional soulmate stuff, I love that; forced empathy/mind-meld situations; mundane things that let us in on a character; places that are secretly characters; mythology from anywhere; people being good to each other and earnest and wonderful; kindhearted wonderful people and the angry people who love them and soften in their presence; small moments; f/f ships, especially genderbends, especially EVERYONE as a girl; AUs that revolve around changes in universe

Here are things I probably won't write:
gratuitous violence; racism; the usual supernatural offenders (werewolves, vampires, zombies, apocalypses); probably like 95% of all content that has to be tagged, including most nsfw prompts; fucky situations; pacific rim AUs; harem or slave shit; probably stuff where I have to imagine another character physically hurting/abusing another character

Other Kinds of Fills I'll Do:
I am up to
1. write and sing songs, or do filk
2. bake shit, if appropriate
3. take pictures of my guinea pig looking cute
4. attempt to digitally paint things, especially if I can paint environments or animals for the fill
5. watercolor things, especially environments and animals
6. compile fanmixesssss I love doing that
7. voice posts????
8. FLOWER ARRANGING, MAKE IT WORK OKAY

I also wrote these dear author letters for exchanges in the past. And here is a link to my AO3.

FANDOMS I KNOW
SASO-related: Free!, Haikyuu!!, Oofuri, Love Live!, Love Live! Sunshine, Yurii!!! On Ice, Chihayafuru

Non-SASO Anime: BHNA, HunterXHunter, Howl's Moving Castle, Spirited Away, Paprika, My Neighbor Totoro, Sailor Moon, Digimon, Pokémon (but the 4Kids dub days only, y'all), Princess Tutu,Colorful, Madoka, Mob Psycho 100, One Piece, Fullmetal Alchemist (the original one), ERASED, Princess Mononoke, Sound! Euphonium, Cardcaptors, Evangelion, Beyond the Boundary

Notable Non-Anime Universes I like: Harry Potter, The Social Network, Hunger Games, Animorphs, Everworld, Steven Universe, Avatar: the Last Airbender

SASO FANDOM STUFF
HQ!!: If the pairing has Kageyama or Hinata in it, I'm probably there with bells on. I ship the first year Karasuno kids with each other in basically all the possible permutations, including tsukkihina, Yams/Kags... yep. I love iwakage and oikage (but especially iwakage, man). I am hella into talking about Kageyama for any reason whatsoever. I like explaining things. I'm not really into the other teams, to be honest! Karasuno is my main drag. I am fascinated with the idea of all else being equal except Oikawa is a girl. I'm intrigued by middle school stuff and its influence on our characters.

Oofuri: I love Mihashi and want him to be loved. I love thinking about Coach Momo, who is my favorite character in all of Oofuri. I would probably write something about Sakaeguchi and his family, and Coach Momo stuff before I write something with the whole team. I like abemiha and Mihashi/Tajima; you could probably bait me easily with angst about Abe and Haruna, so long as I got to talk about how that damaged Abe, man. I love talking about these poor kids and their trauma.

Free!: Haru/Sousuke is the easiest way to get me! I love writing angst, lmao. I like the silly side of this fandom, too. I also love Haru/Rin, the Matusoka curse, the Iwatobi kids, Gou/Kou; I would absolutely attempt to do Sousuke/Pyunsuke, man. I'm here for it. Future Fish universe stuff works for me, but tbh not the mook stuff; OLYMPICS STUFF, gosh. I think Haru and Rin are bi and tbh would actively write Haru/Kou, okay? also EVERYONE AS LADIES, holy shit. Haru/water sex is amazing.

Yuri!!! On Ice: Yuuri angst is the fastest way to my heart; I absolutely could cosplay Minako, and would; I wanna write about Yuko and Takeshi and Yuuri as kids and teenagers; I wanna write about Yuuri growing up in figure skating; I love Phichit/Yuuri, especially in Detroit; I love thinking about Viktor hating himself.

Love Live!: Please prompt me with supernatural shit for this fandom! Please prompt me to do stories about the N-card kids. I love Umi, who is my favorite, and Rin! I love Honks, what a good kid. I feel like I have a surprising amount to say about Kotori, and I don't know where to start, so if you like her, prompt me some gen for her following her dreams to leave Love Live and fucking do what she wants to do??? Please bait me with Umi/Oe from Chihayafuru.

Love Live Sunshine: Matsuura Kanan, Mari Ohara, and Hanamaru Kunikida are my girls. Please prompt me for them!

Chihayafuru: jfk, like, all of the femslash for this fandom; all of the childhood angst and longing for each other; all of the poetry; all of Oe desperately being super gay and super into fashion; all of the supernatural AUs



I think this is it!!

1. I finished the story!!! \0/ I don't think I've ever completed a piece of original fiction before, so this is very exciting.

2. I read this book and it's kind of funny, because--I have watched a ton of murder TV, right. I have watched so much of it that [personal profile] starlit_purple made me stop for awhile because I was becoming too paranoid about serial killers. But for all of that time spent, I've never been good at actually solving the cases myself unless it's super, super obvious. (My sister, though. When we marathoned Major Crimes together I'd already seen the episodes once and I think there was only one episode that she got wrong. I asked her to teach me, but her reasoning was always something fucking random like "his shirt was orange and his pants were brown.") What I am good at is remembering plots, which can get especially repetitive in murder stories. So I'm reading this book, and maybe a third of the way in I'm like "oh! I know this one!" The first time I saw it I remember thinking it was really clever (I was also like... fourteen, so.) And I actually figured out who did it, because the book was angling so hard for it to be one of three guys that it had to be the fourth one.

It's been a couple of rough weeks at work. I compensated with buying a lot of things and now I own like... fifteen shades of lipstick and a couple new shirts because if I'm gonna suffer that much to make the money I'm gonna buy myself some nice things with it. (In my defense, Colourpop has a buy two get one free deal and also a free mini lipstick for every so many dollars, so I didn't go thaaaaat overboard.) (Also whoever told me that I should never wear stripes was wrong.)

I went and applied for a job today!! It's full time, a two minute walk from my apartment, and is during the daytime. I really hope I get an interview because I'm super over working 10 hour days because no one wants to come to work. (I mean, I could say no, but when I am the person who is going to be stuck understaffed I would want someone to stay for me, and I feel like that should go both ways.) I'm not sure how many applicants they got, but. We'll see.

In other news, my familyex story has gone from "fuck fuck fucking fuck" to "oh hey, I got this." I'll finish it up tomorrow, which is a little closer than I like to cut these things, but it'll be done on time for sure. I could even see it being the start of a longer work, somewhere down the line.

That was not good, although I did appreciate that they (slight spoiler) subverted tropes re. who died.

Relatedly, I have no Flash CW icons. Anyone have links to some?
lizbee: (LoK: Lin and Tenzin (back to back))
[personal profile] lizbee
Title: Detour
Author: LizBee
Fandom: Legend of Korra
Characters and Pairing: Lin/Tenzin
Rating: All-ages

Summary: A few months ago, Lin was a promising young police officer. Now she has to find a new path.

Notes: Set in the same AU as "Avalanche". It's called the President Beifong AU on AO3, even though I haven't really gotten to any of the presidential stuff yet. This fic comes with thanks to multivitamins and praticamente-innocua, which between them gave me the strength to start recovering from The Cold I've Had Since March.

While the welcoming party's attention was on the Avatar, Lin climbed gingerly down from Appa and all but collapsed in Tenzin's arms. )

[personal profile] havocthecat
1. These days, I have bad days, and I have worse days. (I also have some good days. Somewhat less for now. This is not my norm, but there you go.) No, I don't really want to talk about it. Right now, anyway. I'm sure I will eventually. Personal problems abound, and I love all of you for being here for me in spite of those.

1A. Thanks to all of you who are patient with my off days when I get a little snappish. Those are less under my control than I would like. Serenity is hard to come by. (Please make all the Firefly tv series jokes you can. :)

2. I have a Tumblr. I have auto-crossposting of public posts set up for the people who have taken off to Tumblr and don't check Dreamwidth anymore, but who want to keep up on my life. I do not log onto Tumblr. Ever. This is not going to change. I don't have the time to be on multiple sites, the mental energy to deal with Tumblr, or the emotional energy to put up with Tumblr's toxic folks.

2A. Yes, I am aware you can curate your Tumblr experience with xkit or Tumblr Savior or whatever the latest trendy scripting extension is, but I don't have time.

3. I do the same with auto-crossposting public posts to Facebook, but I do log onto Facebook occasionally because my LARP runs on Facebook.

4. If you're reading on another site and you want the access-locked posts, you will have to make a Dreamwidth account. That's more personal content and less fandom and nerd content. Well. A little more nerd venting too, I guess.

5. I have many other social networking logins, but mostly don't participate, because I am a lazy social networking slacker.

6. Work is busy and only getting busier. Same with offline obligations. I do my best to reply to comments, but you can also get in touch with me via email to havocthecat@gmail or a Dreamwidth private message.

I am at the stage with my familyex assignment where I am all panic and why did I fucking offer this. Sigh. But the nature of the thing will force me to finish, at least, which is good because I haven't finished anything in... I don't know, like a year.

On the other hand, I think I have read something every day for at least the last six months, so. That's something. I might do a book review post or something. I feel like I used to do those sometimes? And they were fun?

I've started cooking again too. Which is kind of funny, because usually this time of year is when I try to live off of frozen banana smoothies because I can't handle eating actual food, but I made a dinner tonight that included side dishes and everything, and I've cooked at least three other meals this week which is more than I've done in... awhile. (Cooking is like writing for me. I like the process and the end result is fun, but I am often too lazy/exhausted to actually do it.)

lizbee: (Star Trek: Georgiou)
[personal profile] lizbee
I didn't realise how much I needed another woman in command of a Starfleet vessel until the Star Trek Discovery trailer came out. A woman! A Chinese woman! A Chinese woman with an accent! Mentoring the main character, who is also a black woman and seems to have some interesting identity stuff happening with regard to Vulcans!

I'm trying to moderate my enthusiasm by concentrating on the fact that Georgiou is not the captain of the USS Discovery, and may therefore be a minor character, or she could even be killed off early on, despite what Wikipedia and IMDB say about Michelle Yeoh's appearance in all 13 episodes.

Buuuuut. I'm excited.

Because I still have too much work to do, and posting about my actual life is too overwhelming.

1. How did you name your pets?
We never changed our rescues' names, because ... we actually liked their names, though I've since learned it might be psychologically better to change the names of shelter dogs who were never fostered and just spent all their time in the shelter due to cognitive associations. I didn't know that then! I currently don't have any pets :( but would be naming them after book characters, most likely.

2. Poirot or Miss Marple?
I prefer Poirot. Mom prefers Miss Marple.

3. Do you have a FB account too?
I do, but I wish I didn't. The boundaries of what you can or can't say on Facebook are really strange to me and its hugeness and a whole bunch of other things

4. Books - hardcover or paperback?
Neither. Digital. The answer for the past four or five years has been 'large print,' and I've learned that my Kindle just does that for me. Any standard print books require magnifying glasses so I'd rather stick to eInk for everything. (Backlit reading like on a computer, phone or any non-eInk ereader doesn't really work either.)

5. Mobile phone: Windows/Android or Apple?
This question is wrooooong, so let's rewrite. Who thought Android was Windows? :)

5. Mobile phone: Windows, Android or Apple?
Android. I've had a Samsung Galaxy for the last like ... 5? years? First a S5 and now I have the S7; husband might be getting a J3. My mother has an iPhone 6 though and I like it just fine — I stick to Android in part because of the fact that I've already sunk a ton of money into Android apps. I have Apple computers and an iPad, so you'd think I would have the iPhone for more interoperability but that didn't end up happening.

I have a lot of things saviored on tumblr. Like. A lot. At one point I replaced most of the people with pictures of food, baby animals, and pretty dresses, and that helped also.

But anyway, today I was scrolling through my dash and one of my suggested posts (have not yet figured out how to block those) was filtered but I was like, "I know this is a terrible idea and I know I'm gonna be angry but y'know what, I'mma click on it anyway!" Because. I don't know.

It didn't work. I can't click on the post, or open it in a new tab, or see the user blog.

Tumblr is saving me from myself.
