I've went back and re-edited Suitors a bit. Only a few minor changes, like Conrad to Conrart, correcting a few grammatical errors, and removing a subplot that was going nowhere and contradicted later chapters that's coming.

And, just so this post won't be a total waste, let's discuss food and allergies!

1) I finally mastered the art of fried chicken. This has been eluding me for quite some time, and I often gave up in frustration or simply dealt with frying chicken that was good, but not that tasty greatness that a lot of my relatives can do. The key (at least for me), was to season the flour (Lowery's seasoning salt + fresh ground pepper + McCormick's Garlic and Herb seasoning FTW) and not the chicken, put the flour in a bag, and coat the chicken that way, then remove the coated chicken and set it on a plate to let the flour "stick" to the chicken a bit. Plus, heating up the oil slowly on a medium heat helped in not having chicken that browned too quickly (as was one of my errors). I had golden brown, crispy fried deliciousness. I guess good food really does take time to master!

Also, I ended up turning some of what I fried into some yummy hot wings by quickly tossing (by quickly, I mean putting the fried chicken in a bowl, pouring a cup of sauce on them, and stirring just until they were coated) with a boiled homemade unsalted butter-hotsauce-hot chili oil concoction (this can be done with any wing sauce, however), arranging on one layer in a shallow baking pan, then putting in a 400 degree oven for ten-fifteen minutes. They came out crispy instead of soggy (like they were just fried - plus the crispy skin absorbed the sauce), and were excellent.

2) I have finally gotten over my aversion to fresh ginger! It used to be that even the smell of it was enough to make me retch (and eating it tasted like smelling Pine Sol), but I'm finally able to eat it without gagging. Unfortunately, I still cannot stand the smell or taste of cilantro. I walked past a bulk of it at a local mart, and almost vomited right there. DNW.

3) Somehow, I've become allergic to oranges again. I had been allergic to various citrus when I was a kid, but outgrew it. However, a whole host of food allergies popped up in my adulthood (various melons, banana, pineapple, mango, several nuts, etc.), right around the time after I gave birth (my pumpkin will be 8 later this month! ♥). A few days ago, I poured me a glass of orange juice, took one sip, and my tongue started swelling and my throat closed up. That means I'm down to apples as the only fruit that doesn't give me a reaction, and I'm not very fond of those. I still eat pineapple even though it makes my tongue swell a bit. The others have gotten so severe within the past year that I won't even chance them that much. :(

Happy 2010!

Happy New Years, everyone! I'm drunk right now, soooooooooooooooo you know how that goes. The inability to taste (and smell) has made it so that I could not taste the nastiness of alcohol (I don't care, wine is nasty and anyone who tells you otherwise is the biggest lying liar who ever lied). Thus, I drank far more than intended to of the bottle of wine I received for my birthday (okay, I drank the whole damn thing, by myself). Thank Shinou for Firefox spellcheck, cause half of this post was illegible.

Meme Tiem!

I haven't done one of these in awhile, so let's roll. (Quickie fandom list: Kyou Kara Maou; Batman; Detective Conan/Case Closed; Hana Yori Dango; Justice League; Captain Marvel/Shazam; DC Comics)

Give me a character and I will tell you:

+ OTP for them.
+ Runner-up pairing.
+ Honorable mention(s).
+ Crack pairing(s).
+ Ship everyone else seems to like, but I don't.

FML Wednesday #4 is up at [livejournal.com profile] capslock_kkm. Come join us! ♥

Also, after the latest House MD wank (some idiot drew a racist drawing of Foreman, got called on it, decided to apologize and then retract apology, and another idiot drew an even more racist one in retaliation to the people upset over the drawing), and threatening to watch the show just to infiltrate the fandom with Foreman fics, I finally broke down and watched a few episodes of the show.

I. Am. In. Love.

I've only watched the first five episodes (including the Pilot), and I'm already hooked. House? Is a magnificent bastard. I just love asshole characters like this.

I'm hoping this show will inspire me to write a fic or two. So far, I don't ship anything - but I'm highly interested in exploring Foreman and not necessarily in a romantic fic (and, to be honest, I would probably end up writing a Mary Sue insert because I've been attracted to Omar Epps since the movie "Higher Learning").

Finally got around to revising 1 Up. I did not change the plot, though, just some minor details and discrepancies.

Changes made:

  • Sir to Lord

  • Conrad to Conrart, unless Yuuri himself is addressing and/or thinking about him.

  • Epithets (the blond, the fire mazoku, the other man, the taller man, the double black, etc.)- Got rid of most of them, because I stopped using them about half a year ago. I think the writing is "smoother" without them.

  • Various grammatical errors I overlooked before.



Suitors Chapter 6 will be up within the next 24 hours!

ETA: Forgot to mention that I also edited out a lot of italics in 1 Up. Oh, and, Suitors is up now.

I've been sick all week with whothefuckknows (I don't have health insurance, so it's not like I can pop up into the doctor's office and find out). I even missed much of Thanksgiving (I did cook, but I did not eat anything until late that night and spent most of the day in bed).

On the plus side, it's a good thing I hit my NaNoWriMo goal last week, or I would have failed immensely. I only wrote like 3000 words this week, LOL.

Speaking of writing, Suitors does not like me very much right now. I'm being pulled into two different plot directions, both of which are interesting.

ALSO, CAUSE I FEEL LIKE ADVERTISING THIS SHIT - [livejournal.com profile] capslock_kkm IS GOING TO DO FML WEDNESDAYS FOR THE MONTH OF DECEMBER, PLUS A GIF/MACRO PARTY TO RING IN THE NEW YEARS IS IN THE PLANS. HEADS UP. EITHER I OR [livejournal.com profile] chicki_marshies WILL MAKE THE INITIAL POST ON WEDNESDAYS (AROUND 7 PM EASTERN STANDARD TIME). FROM THERE, TAKE AN ICON OF A KKM CHARACTER AND USE IT WHILE POSTING A FML-STYLE POST ABOUT THEM.

Boo-yah!

I hit the 50k mark on Friday, btw.

This has truly been fun for me. My novel is not finished, so I'm still writing (I've decided to hit the goal every day until Nov 30th, who knows I might even hit 75k). I managed to complete something this long (LOL I'm always giving up on things).

More thoughts behind the cut )

Ganking this link from [livejournal.com profile] blackfolk.

Tomorrow morning, November 21st 2009, a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie is airing! A brand new one! Animated, too!

And guess what: it's the old TMNT meeting the new ones!!! It's so very hard to believe this show came on 25 years ago. That makes me feel so very old, because it was airing brand new episodes when I was a whippersnapper (like most of you all on my FL are currently, LOL)

Here's the trailer.



I'm there!

Well, I'm finished with this week's NaNo. Total week count from Sunday to Saturday is:

17,979

Current count (this updates when I update, I think?):


I surprised myself!

My daily goals have been 1) hit the daily goal for NaNo (1667.7777777whatdafuckever) and 2) finish a chapter a day (my chapters are short).

Breakdown on words a day, and discoveries about myself )

All in all, it's been a fun week so far. I haven't pushed myself too much, and I have set limits. For example, instead of playing Tropico like I want to (the old one - I still love that game so very much. One of these days I'm going to get a new computer that's able to run the new one. One of these days...) I wrote chapter 7.

I'll post an update next week! ♥

Taken from a Deadpool fic (which was sporked here):

I roll my rainforest-colored eyes.

I can't!

Also, after I post the rest of the Kinks drabbles, I'm going to go back and re-edit all my older fics. Tedious, but I was re-reading them the other day and cringing at my old mistakes (the blond did this, the blond did that, the fire mazoku this, the fire mazoku that + Holy italics, Batman!). I'm finalizing the second oneshot that goes to TAATS (which is the first fic I'm going to revamp). I'm also completely finished with the third oneshot (well, sometimes I go back and change things up at the last minute) - but the second one needs to go before that one. I'll probably post the next set of themed drabbles before either of those, however.

I still have 9 chapters of a Do. Not. Want. sequel sitting on my hard drive, as well as a crack M-preg and several oneshots. Eventually, I'll do something with them - even if that means cutting them up and using the parts in other stories.

What's up, everyone? I'm back online! I've missed everyone so much! I hope that everyone's in good health, and I'll try to catch up on everyone's posts, but I'll be busy since I'm in the process of finding another job (not subbing this year after all *sigh*).

All is well with me, I'm on DSL instead of Roadrunner now, and I'm trying to get used to it. This dumb thing keeps going down on me, but all should be fixed by tomorrow. I actually was hooked up Thursday, but every time I'd try to go to a webpage, I'd get knocked off the Internet. If I don't reply tonight, I'll definitely respond tomorrow.

My writing has been sort of slow due to things in my personal life picking up. I'm still working on Suitors, but I'm having a time due to being pulled into two different directions by two different plot ideas. I think I sort of wrote myself into a hole with that one - I should have done what I did with TAATS (lol will never be unfunny to me) and written the entire thing out at one time. I'll be posting some drabbles here and there, so something should be up.

Anyhow, I'm glad to be back, and I've missed everyone! *smooches*

Title: The Admirer and the Sage (Chapter 4: Nighttime Rendezvous)
Author: Batty_Gal a.k.a Tetra26
Rating: Slightly M (this chapter)
Fandom: Kyou Kara Maou
Pairing: Wolfram x Murata
Word Count: 1406
Fic Type: Ongoing
Summary: After failing to fall asleep due to brooding, Wolfram decides to take a night stroll. Borderline M rating.

Prior chapters: 1 ~ 2 ~ 3
Why else was he starting to look forward to the masked man's visits? )
shazafram: (Wolfyuu)
So I managed to get over my writer's block, and managed to write 3 chapters in as many days. I'm on a roll! The best part: I didn't even have to write it out of sequence.

2 chapters and one Epilogue until the end. The fic ended up being more chapters than I planned, but once I got the idea after changing my main plot around some, I couldn't stop. I may be finished with this before July after all!

After I finish this, the only thing that will be left will be to do some quick editing, rewriting -- get it beta'd -- rewrite a little more, post it, and that's that. When I finish this and post it, I'm going back to work on my Detective Conan ongoing for awhile.
