unwritten_icons: (GhiraRed)

This is one of those "30 day" memes but I'm too lazy to do that, so I'm doing this meme all at once.





Day 1 - Favourite Straight Pairing

Byakuya/Yoruichi, oooh, big surprise.

Day 2 - Favourite slash pairing

If we're talking characters who are gay in canon, then Haruka and Michiru from Sailor Moon.

Day 3 - Favourite sapphic/femmeslash pairing

Same as above. I'm not that familiar with other shows that have canon gay couples in it.

Day 4 - Favourite siblings

Ed and Al from FMA. They're too perfect.

Day 5 - Favourite friendships

Saria and Link from Zelda: Oot.
Urahara and Yoruichi from Bleach.
Orihime and Tatsuki from Bleach.
/too many to count.

Day 6 - Favourite parent-child relationships

This is tough, but I'll have to say Ichigo and his mother. The second choice would be Ed and Al's mother.

Day 7 - Favourite rivals

For lolz, I think Tatsuki and Chizuru from Bleach, though it's not technically a rivalry because they're friends.

For seriousness, Link and Ganondorf/Ganondorf's various incarnations. I mean, these two get reincarnated over and over and they've been mortal enemies each time. You can't beat that. (At least Link has been reincarnated, it's suggested Ganondorf/his various incarnations are all the same person).

Day 8 - Favourite partners-in-crime

Urahara and Yoruichi, hands down. They make such awesome partners, whether or not you interpret their relationship as romantic.

Day 9 - Favourite family unit (four or more people)

Kenshin and co. from Rurouni Kenshin has always been my favorite.

Day 10 - Least favorite pairing

There are too many for me to name, and I've answered this about a bazillion times already anyway.

Day 11 - An "OT3" or threesome

Meh, don't have any, it's not my cup of tea.

Day 12 - Favourite Person and Animal Companion Relationship

Usagi and Luna from Sailor Moon.

Day 13 - Your first pairing

Link/Zelda from Ocarina of Time.

Day 14 - Your most recent pairing

Ghirahim/Zelda from Skyward Sword.

Day 15 - Favourite non-canon pairing

ALL of my pairings are non-canon except Byakuya and Hisana, and I guess Gin/Rangiku.

Day 16 - Pairing with the best chemistry

Don't make me choose, I can't. I guess if you're looking for "healthy" chemistry, it'd be Byakuya and Yoruichi, because the chemistry Ghirahim and Zelda (would) have is all kinds of screwy.

Day 17 - Favourite canon pairing

I'm torn between Byakuya/Hisana and Kenshin/Kaoru, because ByaHisa caters to my love for dark and angsty pairings, but Kenshin/Kaoru caters to my love for cuter ones.

Day 18 - Favourite group of friends (four or more people)

As much as I'd love to say Ichigo and his nakama, they fall into the Shonen cliche of friends. So I'll say Kenshin and co, which still has some shonen cliches, but considerably fewer of them.

Day 19 - Favorite band of villains

The Juppon Gatana from RK. The villains actually repent (or, most of them). I'm not a big fan of the Espadas because they're all pretty much the same "badass band of villains" that you see all the time in shonen.

Day 20 - A pairing you like, but don't like what canon did/is doing with them

I can't really say, because almost all of my pairings are so non-canon, canon is literally doing nothing to them. For each person maybe, but not as a whole. In which case, Bleach. Kubo, you break my heart.

Day 21 - A pairing you think gets too little attention

All of my pairings. No exaggeration. But I think Ghirahim/Zelda is the top, because I've literally met only two other GhiraZel fans on the entirety of the internet. Everyone else is crazy over GhiraLink or DemiGhira or for fuck's sake, GhiraDemiLink.

Day 22 - A pairing that a lot of people ship, but you don’t

GhiraLink is so crazily popular I've often compared it to a worldwide epidemic.

Day 23 - An unpopular pairing that you like

Again, all of my pairings. Except maybe GinRan and ByaHisa, while they're not AS popular in Bleach, I wouldn't call them unpopular.

Day 24 - A pairing you think are actually together behind-the-scenes, but it's not confirmed in canon

Ghirahim and Fi I mean oh my god how could you not? They are literally the embodiments of each opposite scale. Fi is a purely benevolent being while Ghirahim is a purely malevolent one. They're literally the only two beings of their kind. Even their character designs complement each other, for fuck's sake. And yet everyone I talk to goes "Nuuu! Ghirahim only likes Link!"

Day 25 - A pairing that you have grown to like but didn't at first

I can't really say. If I dislike a pairing, next to nothing changes my mind.

Day 26 - Favourite childhood pairing

Again, Link/Zelda from Oot.

Day 27 - Pairing you think is the most adorable

I don't really like adorable pairings, but I guess Ichigo/Orihime is adorable enough.

Day 28 - A pairing people would be surprised you like

Probably Haruka/Michiru, as most people have the incorrect assumption that I'm "against" gay pairings, when the opposite is true: I'm for gay pairings as long as the characters are ACTUALLY gay, and none of this "well it's up to interpretation, you can't prove they're straight!" nonsense. If you can't prove they're gay, then they can also be straight, or any other sexuality, so what's the point?

Day 29 - Your favourite of all the relationships you've posted so far

I CAN'T CHOOSE. DON'T MAKE ME CHOOSE :(

Day 30 - Free choice!

Buh I have no idea.

THE YEAR IN FIC MEME
Taken from [livejournal.com profile] vixenofargentum


Total Fics:

Not counting my 100-word drabbles as separate fics: 21
Counting my 100-word drabbles as separate fics: 42

I technically started Who By Fire on December of last year, but it hasn't been completed, so I'm counting that one too.


Total Words: 57, 490 (or thereabout, I'm just going by the word count on ff.net)

My favorite story this year:  Who By Fire.

My worst story this year: The Butler did it. I just don't like how it turned out.

Story most under-appreciated by the universe, in my opinion: As much as I LOVE the amount of feedback Who By Fire has received thus far, I still admit I'm a little dissatisfied. The amount of feedback I've been getting isn't proportionate to the amount of work I've put in it, but all in all I'm happy, so I can't say it's under-appreciated. In fact, it's probably the most well-received of all my fics, just not in the proportion I think it deserves.

Sexiest Story: Before the sun could rise. There isn't even sex in it, I just think it's sexy as a whole...er, if that makes sense.

Most fun story: I don't write fun stories...but I guess The Butler did it.

"Holy crap, that's *wrong*, even for you" story: Lucid Dreaming. It's noncon in a way that makes you go 'okay is this REALLY noncon or am I just reading it this way...?' I don't write noncon, I don't read noncon, I don't even do dub-con, at all, so that was really new for me. I can't say I liked it either.

Story that shifted my own perceptions of the characters: Who By Fire, for Ghirahim specifically.

Hardest story to write: Who By Fire. I've put a lot of time and effort into it, it's not even funny...in fact, I should probably be paid for the amount of work I've put into it. Besides that, I'd say it's my Korra drabble, Nothing human, because I've never written for Korra before.

Biggest surprise: ....I'm not sure what this question is asking.

A story I want remembered: Who By Fire. Again, lots of work and all that. But I'd love it if all my stories are remembered, really. I can't just choose one.

I'll probably do this meme again in January.

unwritten_icons: (ByaNew)
Here's a fanfic meme. The questions are probably ones you've seen in other memes, but hey, I wanted to make one anyway. Use as you wish.



1. Do you remember the first fanfic you ever wrote?

Sorta. I think the first one I wrote was a novelization of Ocarina of Time.

2. What is the latest fanfiction you've written?

Right now, it's "The things he takes."

3. What's the longest fanfic you've written?

Who By Fire, at 14 chapters, 42,342 words. I'm not even halfway done yet.

4. What's the shortest fanfic you've written?

Not counting my 100-word drabbles, it's Luna, at 103 words.

5. Do you notice any common themes in your own fics?

Mostly, I notice a lot of my fics have to do with abandonment, unrequited love, and conflict more than others.

6. How many fics have you written?

I've deleted quite a few of them on ff.net, but now, somewhere around 60. The number is likely much higher.

7. What's your favorite fanfic of yours?

Two of them: Who By Fire and I've Known Rain too Long.

8. What's your least favorite?

My earlier ones. Right now I'm pretty happy with the ones I have.

9. Talk about a story that you wanted to write and never did. (from anat_astarte)

I've wanted to write a Byakuya/Hisana story with the prompt "meet you in a better world" but never got around to it. I've also wanted to write a few with different characters and pairings, but I always fall back on my favorites.

10. Do you listen do music when you write?

Most of the time. Not so much lately because the music I have is starting to bore me.

11. What do you struggle most with when writing fic?

Starting it. From there, it's pretty easy. As for multi-chapter fics, I have a problem when making my chapters seem "eventful" enough. Stuff HAPPENS, but it doesn't seem very eventful.

12. Do you mostly read fic, or do you mostly write it?

I almost exclusively write fic. I've read about..2-3 fics this last month, which is a record for me.

13. Is there something in particular that inspires you to write?

Almost always music and poetry.


MEME TIME

Sep. 29th, 2012 12:00 am
unwritten_icons: (Grell)
Ask me any question(s) you have about any of my fics: What I was thinking when I wrote it, what gave me the idea, how much I like it on a scale of 1-10, what I was listening to when I wrote it...to name a few examples. Any question at all. You can pick a certain passage, or the fic as a whole. In turn, I'll ask a question I have about your fic(s)/writing in general.
unwritten_icons: (RanWings)
Another one, just because.



Do you read or write fanfiction?

I mostly write it. I used to read more, but now my interest in fandom is close to 0%. Right now, I'll read maybe one or two fics a year.

When did you first start reading/writing fanfiction?

Reading: 10 or so. Writing: Since I was 8-9.

What was your first fandom?
Zelda: Ocarina of Time.

First ship?

Link/Zelda from Oot.

What website do you use most?

I think I use LJ and ff.net equally.

What do you think of Fanfiction.net?

It's good for posting fic and getting more feedback. It's not so great for quality fic, but I don't read much fic anyway. ff.net isn't so great for quality reviews, but the quality reviews you DO get seem much more special because of that.

What fandoms have you written in?

Zelda (lots of games) Harry Potter, Tenchi Muyo, Phantom of the Opera, Avatar: The Last Airbender, Legend of Korra, Black Butler, Bleach, Rurouni Kenshin, Final Fantasy: Crisis Core. I think that's it.

Pairings?

Zelda series: Link/Zelda, Ghirahim/Fi, Ghirahim/Zelda.
Bleach: Byakuya/Yoruichi, Byakuya/Hisana, Gin/Rangiku, Ishida/Orihime, Ichigo/Rukia, Ulquiorra/Orihime, Urahara/Soifon, Mayuri/Retsu
ATLA: Zuko/Katara
Korra: Amon/Korra (implied, anyway)
Black Butler: Sebastian/Beast
Rurouni Kenshin: Soujiro/Misao, Kenshin/Kaoru
Harry Potter: None.
Phantom of the Opera (sooo long ago): Erik/Meg
FF CC: I don't even remember, I do remember writing for it, though.

Any fandoms you would like to write in?

Currently, not really. I hate fandom. Any fandom. I avoid fandoms as much as I can.

Do reviews affect how you write in any way?

Sometimes. If I get an influx of really nice, thought-out reviews, I feel I have to deliver that same quality again and again, or the readers won't be satisfied. Overall, though, I'd say no. If it's a flame/dumb criticism, my general attitude is "IDGAF."

Do you use a beta?

For my fic Who By Fire.

What ratings do you read/write?

I'll read and write anything NC-17 and below.

What warnings have you used on your fiction?

Sex warning, masturbation warning, a spoiler warning here or there...I think that's it.

Do you have any squicks?

Noncon, dubcon, torture, rape, incest (I'm looking at you, ByaRuki), shota/loli...to name a few.

Do you Role-play online? If so, what?

Nope.

Have you ever stolen something from another person's work?

I think when I was like, 13 I plagiarized someone's work on ff.net and again on aff.net.

Favorite fandom to write/read?

Write: Right now, Zelda. Bleach is up there too. Black Butler was fun. I don't read much, though.

Favorite pairing?

Right now, it's Ghirahim/Zelda.

Favorite writer/writers?

Just take a look at all my other memes, they're all the same people <3

How long should a chapter be?

Since I'm only writing one multi-chap fic right now, I try to get at least 3,000 words minimum for each chapter. For READING chapters, I like chapters around 3,000-6,000 words. Anything above that feels like a chore.

Do you write/read drabbles?

I write them, mostly. Lots and lots of drabbles and oneshots. They're my specialty.

Any fandoms you avoid?

I avoid even the fandoms I'm IN, but I avoid the Black Butler and Zelda: Skyward Sword fandoms the most. As for fandoms I'm not in, I'm kinda sick of Supernatural, The Avengers, Hunger Games, and Game of Thrones. Those are about all I ever see anymore, especially on places like Tumblr. Pages and pages and pages of those ones.

Pairings you avoid?

It depends on the series, but here are a few: Ghirahim/Link, Ghirahim/Demise/Link, Ganondorf/Link, Dark Link/Link, Link/Sheik (though I'm a liiiittle partial to Link/Sheik if the fic is good) Link/Saria. For Bleach, basically all yaoi and Byakuya/anyone but Yoruichi or Hisana, or Yoruichi/anyone but Byakuya. Basically: Unless it's canon, I avoid all yaoi/slash pairings and all het pairings that break my OTPs.

Warnings you avoid?

Rape, noncon, dubcon...basically, I avoid warnings involving my squicks.

Do the number of reviews tell how good a story is?

Absolutely not. I've seen amazing fic on ff.net get zero to very few reviews, while shitty fics are getting hundreds and hundreds. However, I think a few long, quality, or nice reviews are much better than tons of pointless one-liners like "update soon plz!" and such. I'm more likely to read a fic if it has more of the former reviews than the latter.

What do you think of Mary Sues?

I just avoid them, unless they're so bad they're funny.

Have you ever flamed someone?

Yes, but I hesitate to call it a flame. It was a harsh crit of a story I found, once, where someone made a character bulimic and had obviously done 0 research on what bulimia actually is.

Have you ever been flamed?

Yes. I think the first one I got was (deservedly) for that fic I plagiarized when I was 13. Other than that, I can't think of any outright FLAMES I've gotten. I've gotten tons of stupid criticism and pointless one-liners, or had readersr who felt entitled to how they think I should write, but never really FLAMES.

unwritten_icons: (Soifon)

As if I don't have enough of these already, right?





1. How did you get interested in fanfiction? 


When I was about nine, I discovered the internet. I went searching for some Zelda fansites, and on such fansites were fanfictions. Zelda introduced me to so many things: The internet, fandom, fanart, fanfic, etc. If it weren't for Zelda, I don't think I'd have ever started drawing or writing.

2. What was your first fandom? Your first OTP?

My first fandom was Zelda, and my first OTP was (still is) Link/Zelda from Ocarina of Time.

3. Do you review all the fanfics you read, most, or do you prefer to read and move on? If you write, what’s the best review you’ve ever gotten? The worst?

For reviewing: I hardly ever review the fics I read, though I'm trying to change it. For best review: I really can't narrow it down. I've gotten some very lovely reviews. The best reviews I've gotten so far, though, have been for my fic "Who By Fire." The worst  was "oro?" a few years ago. I'm not joking, that's all the review was.

4. Favorite AU to read? To write?

I guess it would be the "what if" AU's, where someone writes how the series might be if the bad guy won. Same with AU's to write.

5. What’s your favorite genre to read? To write?

Angst, romance, and drama, for both questions.

6. What are your biggest fanfiction pet peeves?

How do I even start:

-Epithets. "The small girl" or "the tall boy" etc. I rarely, if ever, use it in my own writing. I get that using gender pronouns/names can get boring, but I would rather read those than tons of epithets. They truly don't do anything for a story. Some authors use them well, most don't.

-OOC. Obvious one. But if someone writes a character so obviously OOC it blows my mind, I will forever avoid fics by that person. I don't mind a LITTLE OOC, but just a tiny bit. By "little" I mean "99.99% of everything your character does better be OC or at least explainable. No exceptions."

-Character bashing/pairing bashing just to get X character with Y character. I see this in both the het and yaoi/slash community, and it bugs the shit out of me. Especially when someone makes a character OOC just to make them seem like a bitch/bastard so their favorite character/ship "looks better." Or when people kill off X character so Y ship can happen.

-Badly written all-around. I'm talking the big four: Bad grammar, punctuation, syntax and characterization. However, this is certainly not a unique pet peeve.

-Sexist talk. Especially in Ganondorf-centric fics where he calls the Goddesses "whores" "sluts" "bitches" and such every other sentence. I get that Ganondorf hates the Goddesses - but I think having him call them sexist slurs is extremely distasteful. There are other ways an author can protray his hate for them, or any other male/female character portraying hate for another character.

7. Do you have any crackships?

Just about every ship of mine is crack in some way or another. I think the only ones that aren't crack are ByaHisa and ZeLink.

8. Do you have any ships you don’t like or used to but don’t anymore?

How many times have I answered this? This gets asked a lot. Anyway:

I used to like ByaRen but ended up hating it, thanks to the sheer amount of crappy fics that ship has, or how they're portrayed, even in good fics. Then there's the fact that it's all I ever see when searching for Byakuya fic. Basically, the more I tried to like it/get into it, the more I ended up hating it thanks to fandom.

For the ones I don't like: So many. Right now it's these ones:

GhiraLink
GhiraDemiLink (it exists, don't look it up)
Ganondorf/Link
Ghirahim/freaking everyone, I'm not joking, people ship him with EVERYONE. (everyone but female characters, might I clarify)
Byakuya/anyone but Hisana or Yoruichi
Crack ships that make absolutely no sense or logic, or seem like someone just went "LOL character A/character B just cause!" Basically, crack ships that are even crackier than what crackships normally are. I'll buy a crackship if you can make it work within the boundaries of canon. Otherwise, forget it.

Further examples of crackships mentioned above:

Ghirahim/Pipit: Ghiahim can't even travel to Skyloft, Pipit has never set eyes on The Surface and likely only did AFTER Ghirahim was defeated. Both characters don't even know the other exists. This makes absolutely no damned sense at all. It's one of those "LOL just cause" pairings.

Byakuya/Nanao: I think Byakuya would respect her for her attitude and for being such a hard worker, but anything beyond that boggles my mind. It's one of those "hmmm sounds nice but couldn't really work" pairings.

Basically, I hate a lot more pairings than I love.

9. Are there any kinks you love to read? Any you avoid?

Oh boy I feel the judgmental eyes on me:

Kinks I love: asphyxiophilia, bondage, dirty talk, hair pulling/grabbing, biting, scratching, toys, orgasm denial...the list goes on. However, aside from asphyxiophillia, most of these kinks are rather "normal."

Kinks I avoid: Shaming, blackmail, noncon, dubcon, torture, bloodplay, incest, minors, pedophilia, shota/lolita, orgies...etc. If a fic even HINTS at these, I’m out of there.

10. Do you prefer to read fanfics in first, second, or third-person POVs? To write?

Third person. I don't mind first person if done well, but I would rather read third person. I always avoid second person. Always. I always write in third person.

11. Do you read exclusively NC-17 fanfics, or will you read any rating?

Anything at or below NC-17. Basically, no R rated stuff.

12. What’s the latest you’ve stayed up reading a fanfic? Writing one?

I have absolutely no idea. Too late. Way too late.

13. Is there a website you’re partial to when you search for fanfiction, or do you more read whatever you can get your hands on? When it comes to writing, is there a website you prefer to use for publishing your fanfics?

I prefer LJ for searching for quality-fics, but I prefer ff.net if I'm looking for fics I couldn't find on LJ, e.g, GhiraZel fics (an extremely rare pairing). However, I rarely, rarely, rarely read fic anymore. For publishing, I like ff.net and LJ equally, though I get a lot more reviews on ff.net.

14. How long have you been “18”?

Since I was like, 10-11. I clearly remember stumbling on my first NC-17 rated fic when I was about 10. I found it again a while ago, and went "hahaha this shit is TAME compared to stuff I read now!"

15. Are there any plot ideas you want to either do or see someone else do?

Oh boy....let me narrow it down to two:

First, an AU in which Ghirahim wins (kills Link, takes over Hyrule, yadda yadda) but PLOTTWIST: Doesn't revive Demise and takes Zelda as his own. This could either go non-sexual or so fucked-up-sexual-it's-not-even-funny. I wouldn't mind either way. In the end, though, Zelda HAS to kill him. HAS TO.

Second, an AU in which Hisana doesn't die.

16. Do you associate certain songs with certain ships or fanfics? If you could make a playlist for your OTP(s), which songs would be on there?

Holy fucknuts, another question where I don't know where to begin. I'll narrow it down to my two favorite ships:

ByaYoru: 

"Princess of China" by Coldplay and Rhianna.
"Love Games" by Lady Gaga
"About Her" by Malcolm McLaren
"Run" by Uh Huh Her
"Dance without you" by Skylar Gray

GhiraZel:

"Disentigration" by Papercutz
"Dark Walz" by Hayley Westenra
"Seduction" from the Legend soundtrack
"Monster" by Lady Gaga
"Come away to the water" by Maroon 5
"Black vow" from Vocaloid

17. Do you follow any RPs? Do you RP?

Nope.

18. What’s on your fanfiction rec list?

As I said earlier, I rarely read fic anymore. However, here are some authors I’d rec ATM:

[livejournal.com profile] laerkstrein
[livejournal.com profile] woodwind
[livejournal.com profile] afteriwake

[livejournal.com profile] impa on [livejournal.com profile] reversecho (though she prefers reviews on her ff.net account).
Chaotic Serenity from LJ



unwritten_icons: (ZeldaBlue)
Pick any passage of 500 words or less from any fanfic I’ve written [within the last eighteen months or so and it can be from fanfic.net or here on LJ], and comment or ask with that selection. I will then give you the equivalent of a DVD commentary on that snippet: what I was thinking when I wrote it, why I wrote it in the first place, what’s going on in the character’s heads, why I chose certain words, what this moment means in the context of the rest of the fic, lots of awful puns, and anything else that you’d expect to find on a DVD commentary track.
