Title: Symphony of Metal and Trees
Summary: I'll let you know about that when I figure it out.
Things You Should Probably Know: Calais' name isn't pronounced like the French city of Calais (pronounced Cal-ay, as per French rules of dropping half the vowels and making up everything else). It is pronounced "Kah-LAY-is", and Syres is "SEAR-ez", in case you need to know.

Picks up directly after the last post.

Chapter 1c

* * * * * *

The sun rises furthur over the depression and light fully hits the windows, spreading colors across the crowd like a kalaideoscope, bright and whirling and beautiful, and this is why Calais comes to the sunrise ceremonies.  )

oh god i feel like such a bad mom. Calais is my BABY and look at what I'm putting him through.

That said, this is probably going to undergo A LOT of editing come December. I need to pace all of this better than it is here. BUT THERE IS NO TIME FOR EDITING IN NOVEMBER.

Chapter 1b

Both of his arms are etched with the lines, red and stark like new wounds. But wounds aren't typically as carefully formed and smooth as these marks. There is a pattern to be seen somewhere in there. )

Chapter 1a (for now. I can rearrange it as much as I like later)

* * * * * *

Calais keeps his head down and body tightly curled. He doesn't want to get in trouble for being in the temple after dark. )

* * * * * *

I don't know if that will actually start the story proper, or if that'll just be somewhere in there. I'll figure it out later.

Prologue

He's a boy, barely has any muscle to 'im, yet he can fight and hold his own with the best of 'em when he doesn't eat and sleep? Smells like magic to me )

Haaaah...

Um. Yeah.

So. Prologue.

taadaaaaaa

I think it'll get more interesting from here on out?

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.

BUT.

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: (Star Trek - Open Your Mind)
Alright, a couple of things, because I am tired, it's only 9 am, and I've been awake for four and a half hours because of my internship that I am resenting at this moment for standing between me and sleep.

First. I write too many AUs sometimes. I mean, obviously for the fandom that I've decided to be in, it's almost necessary because otherwise, hello, almost everyone's dead. I think I need a special tag just for my canon fics, since they're so few and far between. (not complaining, never complaining, just noticing.)

(eta. No seriously, I have my fic ideas document open right now rereading through some of it, and at one point I actually wrote "Kingdom Hearts AU Zemyx (because when do I write anything else?)" because I know myself too well.)

Second. Is it a bad thing that anytime I hear "Roxanne" by the Police, I immediately start belting the song, but replace Roxanne's name with Roxas'? It's an unholy compulsion, really. I can't stop it. There may have been a couple of Prostitute!Roxas roleplays that my beta and I did, and it might have ended up with Axel being bizarrely concerned for his well-being and just, look, I can't help myself. Especially not when my beta's in the car with me.

No, really, I have no clue what these posts are for, I'm really just updating to keep myself busy. I have a tiny bit of writer's block that I need to beat in. But hey.

So. Uh. Yeah. I sing songs and write too many stories. That was ... pretty much the point of this.

OH!

That reminds me.

I'm going to do Nano this year. Just a heads up that in November I'm going to be hella busy with that, since I'm going to try my hand at writing my original story.
