music: the sound of long-needed california rain

Haven't written much lately because

  • full-time work as a cashier is so goddamn boring it becomes mind-numbing and exhausting and I hate living in Sacramento oh my god hello, depression, my old friend

  • I'm working on my first articles for The Wild Hunt, so, no pressure there

  • I might take over the (volunteer) position as social media/newsletter editor for Cherry Hill Seminary, but I have to submit ideas and mock-ups first, which take tiiiiime

I wanted to have something to post on Halloween but I never finished it, so...maybe soon?  ...ish???

The last two chapters are on AO3.  Please read the author's notes at the end.

My hands are literally shaking with anxiety, but I'm sure it will soon change to relief that, after so many years (!!!), it's all over.

fic: the asshole effect (ff7/8/13)

Jun. 4th, 2014 | 04:34 pm
mood: amusedamused
music: ingrid michaelson - "time machine"

The Asshole Effect
FF7/8/13 || PG-13: college!AU || Squall, Cloud, Lightning being bros || ~2,400 words
A book of absurdity, a pencil with a fancy stamp, and a rambling conversation between three assholes in Starbucks.

  • Born from my mumbling Tumblr post, heyo.

  • While it's a wandering conversation in a coffee shop, bits of canon from FFVII, FFVIII, FFXIII, and FFXIII-2 are mashed in with a cameo from FFX's deity, Yevon.

  • a few of the referenced non-canon events are still real-life events. What can I say, I’m a winner.

music: woodkid - "iron"

There are few genres in which I haven't found something I liked (this does not, as people usually expect, include rap, hip-hop, or country), so, y'know, if you've got any suggestions, I'd love to hear them.  /begging

fic: wasteland (ff7, cloud+zack)

Mar. 21st, 2014 | 03:39 pm
mood: discontentdiscontent
music: ms mr - "bones"

FF7 || PG-13 || Cloud, Zack || ~1,200 words
Sometimes your worst enemy is just day-to-day life. Modern!AU.

  • Lyrics come from Rise Against, "The Approaching Curve"; Plowed, "Sponge"; The Killers, "Runaways." Because they're favorites, and I can, and this is semi-pretentious self-indulgence (i.e. therapy!fic for disaffected twenty-somethings) anyway.

Cloud is so lost in his own thoughts that he doesn't realize anything is different until he finds his hand grasping the handle of a car door.Collapse )

cloud and sephiroth showed up in my dream last night

mood: exhaustedexhausted
music: florence + the machine - "kiss with a fist"

and while i don't remember what happened in a way that can be coherently explained, i woke up for the first time in literally years actually fangirling about cloud and sephiroth and the bittersweet fuckery between them, oh my god, please let this mean my complete burnout on that fandom isn't actually complete anymore.

also, arin_rowan, i've been getting fuckloads of compliments on my d20 earrings at this place full of nerds and pagans, so hopefully you'll get a few more customers at your lovely etsy.  :D :D :D

it's been a while.

mood: hothot
music: MSMR - "Bones"

  1. Got an apartment downtown with Boyfriend and another friend and we're three blocks from my fave coffee shop, you can see my priorities here.  Also a ten minute walk from the wharf with all the hacking of sea lions and the pervasive smell of ocean that creeps through your window at night.

  2. (Which reminds me, fateofshadow, I keep meaning to send you more saltwater taffy.  Goddamn international shipping costs.)

  3. Stealing sporadic Internet from various coffee shops and the community center across the street, but since it is so sporadic I've done more actual reading of books in the last two weeks than the last several months.  Somehow I fail to regret this.

  4. Discovered I still have a problem with spending grocery money on books.  Exacerbated by now living four blocks from the nearest bookstore.

  5. OH SHIT I'm going to be representing the 'sky' realm in the upcoming three-realm-Celtic-inspired Samhain ritual, which means ritual performance!  In public!  In front of other people!  With the Morrigan!  Why the fuck did I volunteer for this!

  6. Found a leather jacket for ten bucks today.  Booya.

  7. Still no full-time job AHAHA who needs to eat

  8. The Assassin's Creed series is giving me feelings.

  9. Writing fic, what does that mean.

fic: the boatman, crossed by death (dishonored, gen)

Aug. 6th, 2013 | 01:18 am
mood: exhaustedexhausted
music: great big sea - "the banks of newfoundland"

The Boatman, Crossed by Death
Dishonored || R (violence) || The Outsider, Samuel, Corvo || ~7,500 words
"I know all the stories. I know all the beginnings, and all the endings. But it's the telling of them that changes, and Samuel knows far more than he thinks he does."

  • warnings for human sacrifice, descriptions of slavery, and the aftermath of torture

  • iambickilometer's belated birthday gift, woot

  • for your edification, my rambling on why I wrote the myth bits the way I did


"In the beginning was the Void – "

"But what made the Void?"

"Emily," Corvo murmurs at the same time Samuel says, "Beggin' your pardon, Your Majesty, but that's the kind of question best left to people more learned than I."

"Go ahead, Samuel," prompts Callista.
