I swear to god

I will get this Seiner up before I go to sleep

But Seifer just REFUSES to stick his hands down Hayner's pants already. God damn it Seifer, get over your own manliness and cooperate.

Okay, so I'm home in Texas finally which is nice, because this semester has lasted a FUCKING YEAR! I'm glad that I have less responsibility here, but I miss my girlfriend. She stayed up in South Dakota for the time being.



I can tell you this much about what I've been writing: Seiner is coming first up, and you guys are going to HATE ME for this. Hopefully, TTB will be after that, and then I get to start working on all the various one shots AND REQUEST FICS and other stuff that I've been compiling ideas for, such as LAPDANCING ZEMYX FIC.

(By the way, if I've promised anyone fic that ISN'T a request on kh_request, because I have notifications for those sitting there glaring at me, LET ME KNOW.)

Okay, once again, I've become really very bad at keeping in contact with everyone here, and I can promise you that this time, it's nothing bad. Just school and getting sick and getting blocked a little on that whole writing deal.


All is well, as far as I know. It's been a month since everything's been completely settled, and today is a bit of a deciding day. We'll see how everything is in a few hours. Now, onto fic things.

The Twilight Between (Zemyx fic): Nothing new yet. Still writing Chapter 6, so no updates there.

69 Things that Turn You On (college Zemyx fic): HUGE BLOCK. But still going.

Just Conflict Me(Seifer/Hayner Masochism fic): Hey, this is the one that just updated, so nothing new on this.

Other various things that are in progress: All are in different stages of being written. But nothing will be unwritten!

Now, bad news.

I'm participating in NaNoWriMo, so I'm not going to be writing anything other than my Nano project during November. I'm sorta excited and sorta nervous because it's an original story I've been formulating in my head for the last ten years. (Yes that means that I started the story when I was 11, but it's gone under some huge changes since when it was just the story I told myself to go to sleep.) So I'm on a fic hiatus from November until December.

*flails* Oh god, I'm so nervous about writing this story. They're my babies, and I've worked on them for so long, and I'm not sure how well the rest of the world would take them.

How's everyone?
zenelly: (Digimon - You Are My Sunshine)
Alright guys, I think that I'm back for now.

Of course, NDK starts tomorrow, so I might not have too much access to the internet in the next couple of days, but eh.

I'm still not going to go into what happened, because I'm still not sure what all happened. Needless to say, these past five days have been absolutely insane with the emotional ups and downs and all arounds that my particular circle of friends has been through. Insane, I tell you. One of those situations where you end up just staring at the events that have happened and giving up because you're too tired and frustrated to deal with it.

But it didn't happen directly to me, just to one of my closest friends, and because of that, we all sorta got involved. At least on the periphery, which hurts almost as much as being straight in the middle.

I still haven't written anything between getting cosplays ready and dealing with the fallout, but I'm hoping that I'll have around an hour today to get at least SOMETHING written on paper.

Hold me to it, guys.

Also, what would you think about doing your first fic in a fandom for a holiday exchange thing? Think someone should get more of a hold on the characters first?

Alright, question.

Does anyone really care if I just start posting the masochism fic as is? Like, another WIP? Because I could and it might be fun to have something that has a little bit less of a definite timeline (and hey, it might mean more Seifer/Hayner porn for you guys).

Just something to think about.
zenelly: (Demyx - Exasperation)
A random, completely inane goal I have: Manage somehow to have fic titles that span the entire alphabet.

Don't ask me why.

I just do.

I have "E, G, H, J, K, L, N, Q, U, V, W, X, Y, Z" still left to go. I don't know what I feel the need to do this. I don't even know why I feel the need to post this. (Maybe to remind you that yes, I am alive?)
zenelly: (Demyx)
Alright, I'm fairly certain that you all noticed that I'm terribly absent on weekends. This is deliberate. Mostly because I'm on the computer so much during the week.


Minor updates.

I am going to see Steven Sondheim's Company today. That promises to be fantastic, and I'm SO looking forward to it because I am already plotting an AkuRoku fic that is inspired by one song in the musical. Yes, yes, an AKUROKU fic. Not Zemyx (though they will play a part, but they're going to be pre-established, not getting together for once).

Hopefully seeing the musical (as performed by Neil Patrick Harris) will help with the ideas.

Uh, working on requests, I am I am, I promise. I'm trying to write them well, not just write them and be done with it. *shrugs* Also, TTB Chapter 4 is getting worked on! It just hit over 1k (and that should tell you how much trouble I'm having with it), and I think that it's finally hitting a stride that I can keep working on. Had to adjust some of the timing and setting, and that took me a while to do.

May one-shot of "69 Thing that Turn You On" is also in progress. First scene is almost entirely written and the rest of it has more of a coherent flow to it.

AAAAnd with that, I'm going to be heading off. Toodles!

Guess who forgot her flashdrive that has all her fics on it!

*points at self*


Ah well, luckily there are fic prompts for me to get working on. ([livejournal.com profile] xtorchlightx, your prompt won't be one of those because I had parts of it written on said flash drive. I'm sorry... *sweatdrop*)
zenelly: (Ken - Stressing)

No, I'm completely serious. It is Zemyx day, and I WILL HAVE FIC, DAMN IT, but the only time I've had to write/plan any of it has been ten minutes of furious texting between me and my Captain at lunch and the five minutes it took me to write that texting in a word document in all caps.

That being sai, I have the WORLD'S MOST FANTASTIC idea for a fic. SO. I am off to write that in the ... hour and fifteen minutes I have left at work. We'll see how far we get.
zenelly: (Ouran - Evil Grin)
Guys, guys, I promise I haven't abandoned you or anything (especially not those of you who are waiting on requests. The messages are sitting in my inbox, glaring at me every time I look), I've just started working again!

So, I'm at the same place I was last year, only now I'm waking up 30 minutes earlier (ugh, 4:30 am. Too Early.) and I'm in a different department! Hopefully I'll be able to get access to the computer tomorrow, which means that I can take small breaks to write and to post here! Woo! I've been hand-writing short notes on pieces of paper all day, so maybe they'll amount to something. At least one of them is the beginnings to another small P'R'U post-side-story. If that makes any sense.

I'll be writing in the April and May oneshots later tonight. April seems to be halfway to 2/3rds of the way done, so hopefully I'll get that finished soon! I'll also be working on the three request fics that I have left since I have at least one of them started on paper, and I'm beginning to kindle ideas for the other two.


ETA: Only one scene left in April's oneshot! A month late is better than never, eh?
zenelly: (Dean - Laugh)
It is a good sign when you can't stop giggling at one of your own scenes while writing.

*looks at passage*


Oh jeez.
zenelly: (Star Trek - Kiss and um....)
Ahahahahahaha, writing porn writing porn writing pooooorrrrnnnn

filthy dirty porn

and I'm getting too embarrassed to wriiiite iiiitttt.

(*crawls away to hide face that is red enough to light a country for a week*)

Point is, I wrote two things. One is a short little P'R'U 'verse thing that I'll post up later, because I want to clean it up. Second is a random Axel/Saix half-drabble(?) that I thought up in the space of two minutes and posted in a comment before I could forget it over on [livejournal.com profile] onemoreparadise's LJ. I'll post that too. Cleaning it up first, but I'll post them both.

Jeez, I need to wake up at 4:30 more often.

Okay, back to bed.
zenelly: (Zexion - This bullshit)
So I've been mostly absent from this LJ for a couple of weeks, and I do have reasons.

1. Spring Break was last week. So I was basically just chilling around the house and playing Pokemon White with Pixie and Jer-bear (our friend). (ALSO: N AND CHEREN, THE ONLY REASONS NEEDED TO PLAY THIS GAME, aside from the fact that it's actually good, has a plot for once that lasts beyond the elite four, etc etc...)

2. The week before that, I was reading and rereading Name of the Wind and The Wise Man's Fear by Patrick Rothfuss, which by the way, EVERYONE NEEDS TO READ. NO SERIOUSLY, GIVE ME PEOPLE TO TALK TO ABOUT THIS BOOK BECAUSE IT'S FANTASTICAL AND I NEED TO TALK INCESSANTLY ABOUT IT. (FFFFF KVOTHE)

3. During this time, I got almost no writing done. I know, I know, I'm sorry. The March one-shot is underway, and TTB Chapter 3 is being written too. I'm trying, guys, but school does come first, and sometimes, I just need to recharge.

4. Icon making is fun, just an fyi. Made like, four icons this last two days just for shits and giggles.

5. Got an idea for another story yesterday. More Zemyx, because when does my mind turn to anything else?


That was more of a list of what I've been doing than why I haven't been active on here.

zenelly: (L is always Watching)
So, the February one-shot is the Death Note one (only because it has to do with Valentines Day, and I promised myself last year that I would write it), and I never realized before how much I was hurting last year when I came up with the plot-line.

See, last year around this time, I was going through a big bit of irrational jealousy over my two best friends and a bit of relationship stuff (or lack-thereof), and it's still bleeding through every bit of this ficlet. I mean, I thought I had gotten over it, but apparently, no, no I haven't. Not to mention that I don't like it when the characters don't end up happy.

(The only thing that last sentence means is that I'm going to write a follow-up fic where Mello gets his head out of his ass and actually DOES SOMETHING about Matt and his feelings. So February is a two-fer.)

I never knew that I could get this sad just by writing a fic. I'm not too sure how well it all came through, though, especially since I don't like talking about it myself.

Oh well, time to see, I guess.

ETA: Also, got my nails painted yesterday. They're a lovely shade of blue. And every time I look at them, all I can think is "OMG THEY LOOK LIKE SAILOR MERCURY'S NAILS". And then I sorta want to facepalm.

zenelly: (Sora - Stairs)
So, I've hit a small block on the TimeTraveler!Sora fic, but that's okay. I'm having Pixie, ([livejournal.com profile] prettypixiechan, and my roommate Tyna take a look at it to tell me what they think I should do next.

INSTEAD OF WORRYING ABOUT IT, HOWEVER! I'm going to post a few snippets of TTB Chapter 1, TTB Chapter 2, and the TimeTraveler!Sora fic.


Snippets below cut )

Alright, so there you have it! I'm having fun writing these, so I hope you like them!
zenelly: (Barney Stinson - Words of Wisdom)
Alright, college started today! Woo! (not really)

I decided that out of all of my prompts from last time, I felt most inspired to write TimeTraveler!Sora, so look forward to that.

Also, I'm getting close to being done with the second chapter of TTB, so I'll probably post the first chapter later this month (hopefully!!)).

Augh, hectic hectic hectic

(Con this weekend, SoDak Con, getting cosplay done last minute, thief from Final Fantasy Tactics Advance. Totally worth it. Minorly wiped out. Sorry for the shortness of this, my mind isn't all here right now.)


Jan. 3rd, 2011 12:30 am
zenelly: (Not Alone)
Now, you have to understand before I begin this that I'm not whining in any way about what I'm doing or why I'm doing it. I'm just putting this up here for comparison.

For The Twilight Between, I have the first chapter written, the second one about half-way done, and I finished outlining all of the chapters. I'm now working on the outlines and first chapter for Devil in Your Hands. This is not what I want to bring to your attention.

What I want to bring to your attention is this:

I have a document on my computer. It is called "TTB and DiYH Chapter Outlines". This is the document where I have a plot synopsis for every goddamned chapter, and bits and pieces of stuff that I have written for those chapters before I start the REAL work on them. Any snippet I have posted here is in that document.

I have ANOTHER document, called "TTB OUTLINE" (yes in all caps). This document is a character development thing. This is what I wrote when I was just first having the idea for it, and the only thing I knew was that Demyx was empathic and that he didn't know what to do about it. It was the plot developing document, where I wrote down every idea I had for the story and finally began to flesh it out.

I also have YET ANOTHER DOCUMENT called "Two Story Ideas". This is where I write any idea I have for a fic. Anything. It has half of Mnemonic in it, none of Silence is Golden, the beginning of Pants 'R' US, and the very first piece of TTB that I wrote. (It has WAY MORE THAN THAT on it, too)

...Now, you might be wondering why I'm talking about this.

I just...wanted to say this.

Between these three documents, two of which exclusively deal with TTB, I have over TWENTY-FIVE THOUSAND WORDS, just talking about fic ideas that aren't fully fleshed out. "Two Story Ideas" is just as long as the final version of Pants 'R' Us, and it deals with over twenty-five separate stories. At most, I have one thousand words for a story in there. Some of them are only sentances, others paragraphs. "TTB OUTLINE" is seven thousand words. Just talking about the bare bones of TTB and DIYH.

I never really put that much stock into how much I really plan these things out.


Sorry, I just felt like I should mention that.
zenelly: (Sora - Stairs)
I know that TTB is probably the most ... anticipated of my works so far (murrhurrhurr, listen to me talk like I'm all important and stuff), and I just wanted to let everyone know what's going on with that.

TTB updates! )

So, sort of to tide you over, here's a small excerpt from TBB!

A hollow, dreading sensation echoes within him. He wants to run outside, call Zexion back and keep him near always. (The last time he has been so well for so many days in a row had been years ago, and he wants to know what it is about Zexion that makes him smooth and unhurting.)

Pressing his hands against the cold window, Demyx yearns. His fingers are leaving vapor outlines on the glass, and for a half second, he expects it to melt and let him through. When it doesn’t, he sighs, leaning harder into the window, towards Zexion. It feels like a line is cast from his mind, straining and stretching for Zexion. But the feeling is only mental, and the thread is formless, insubstantial, and Demyx never knows if it ever reaches him.

(But Zexion turns around and looks up at him, and that will have to be enough.)

Hope it's living up to what you're hoping for!

Aaaand onto Real Life stuff )
zenelly: (AkuRoku - Cold outside)
So, thank you all for your ideas on what to write as an ending! I love reading what people would do if it were their story, and it does help. Really, it does, even if I don't end up using your suggestion.

(I might not use certain suggestions because of the way I want to tell the story, but that makes them no less good, really. Killing Demyx off? Great suggestion. Surprise twist ending? Also great suggestion. And I'll look at them closely, even as I write. Plans change a lot when I write, so nothing is really set.)


I sat down with my beta and girl-friend [livejournal.com profile] prettypixiechan and told her the entire plot of the story that I had so far (which is long and involved and was, at that point, still mostly in my head), and she gave me some REALLY GOOD IDEAS for how to end it.

So I did.


Mind you, I want a buffer zone on this fic. Don't expect any chapters up until I have two or three done, because I don't want to make this drag on forever, and my schedule is unforgiving at best.

But TTB and DiYH are on the way!

*furious fistpumping*

Also, it is snowing in South Dakota.


((And I turn 20 in two days, wheee!))
