Thanks for your kind words in regards to the loss of my mother. I'm dealing with it better, bit by bit, and I know that I'll be alright.

Alright, sad stuff aside, I realize I hadn't posted in quite a while before my last post. Several fandom things happened in that time. Do y'all want the good news, the bad news, or the worst news first? Sadly, I think they might vary amongst you all.

The Good News: I feel inspired to write.

The Bad News: I'm not inspired to finish up anything I started writing or anything KKM related (*sigh*). Everything has been original, or fic snippets that will never see the light of the Internet.

The Worst News: Somehow, I became a fan of the show Supernatural (I know, I know.

News Better than that previous bit: But not enough to write for it or ship anything or do anything other than laugh at other fans.

The Interesting news: My daughter is now a KKM fan. Her favorite character is Günter, lol, and she calls it "The Yuuri Show" instead of by its name. She also wants to be Günter for Halloween, extra lol. I guess I'll have to ask on the comm where I can find a costume or something.

The Obvious news: I've discovered that I don't like it very much when characters I love die permanently, not even for ~storyline purposes~. A good story is a good story, I used to think - but I'm to a point where I just can't stand it anymore. The City Hunter Kdrama really screwed me up, because two of my favorites died in that. I'm still not over that last HP book, so much so that I refuse to even bother with those last movies or that last book (or really the last two books - in my mind Snape and Dumbledore are not dead LA LA LA LA LA). I can't even bear re-watching Rose of Versailles anymore, it's so tiring and depressing. Maybe I'll get over this hangup, I guess I'm tired of dealing with death and dying even of fictional characters (yeah, and becoming a Supernatural fan was such a good idea, self?).

Oh yeah, I wanted to tell y'all some fandom silliness. Can I just say that one of the best fandom meltdowns I have EVER seen has been happening in the One Life To Live fandom? For those of you who don't know the canon and don't care, all I have to say is imagine a fan favorite character's actor left the show and was killed off on the show, and then was replaced by someone new playing the same character with the excuse of having had plastic surgery to explain why he looks different. That new person stayed in the role for 8 years, played the role differently and got his own set of fans (while fans of the old actor mostly did not like the way he took the character), until the old actor came back and it was revealed that the new version was a fake all along brainwashed into believing he was the original character but is actually a twin of his. Then the fake gets killed off two weeks later. Throw in fans shipping the character with two different women, and KABOOM. It's beautiful, people. Beautiful.

What do people not understand? You would think after the entire Diana Gabaldon "fanfic writers are like creepy stalkers that write porn about your children" fiasco that people would know better.

Writing fan fiction arguably falls under fair use (I say arguably, because while a fanfic writer is using someone else's copyrighted works, they are not making profit off of them or passing that work off as entirely their creation). SELLING fan fiction most certainly does NOT fall under fair use, and is undeniably copyright infringement. So when I see things like the fan mentioned here attempting to sell her fan fiction (under the guise of "Donations") and Torchwood fandom fic auctioning mentioned here, I want to bash my head (and theirs) against a wall.

Cut it out, people.

This type of crap is why a lot of professional writers fear fan fiction and think it's the Devil: because some people are trying to make monetary gains off their works. Find another way to put money in your respective pockets.

And finally, darling #1: You are 27. I am 29. I am criticizing your actions, and my criticism of you is no more valid than someone 10, 20, 30 or more years older than you solely because I fall within your age range. Shoot, even people 10 years younger than you can criticize what you are doing without their criticism being invalid because they are whippersnappers.

Ageism in fandom is annoying (how many times have some of us older fans heard "you're too old to be writing fan fiction/enjoying fannish things!" by other fans and people who don't get fandom? And what about younger fans who are often derided when people assume that bad grammar/horrid plots has to have been committed by someone their age?), and no one is "picking on you" when they call you out because you are doing something that is considered a huge no-no in fandom.

Fandom List

The fandoms I fangirl over the most are bolded. The fandoms I actively participate in have an asterisk beside them. I've also noted where I only follow certain canons (for example, I might follow a manga canon but ignore the anime).Fandom List )

I'll be expanding/updating this list over time.

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.

I haven't done a meme in ages! Stolen from [ profile] bodyline:

Name your 10 absolutely favorite couples (het/slash/canon/fanon) and ask people to see what trends they notice about your couples. Try to pick different fandoms:

1.) Wolfram/Yuuri (Kyou Kara Maou)
2.) Shinichi/Heiji (Detective Conan)
3.) Domyouji/Makino (Hana Yori Dango)
4.) Nightwing/Oracle a.k.a Dick/Barbara (Nightwing or Batman)
5.) Robin/Spoiler a.k.a Tim/Stephanie (Robin or Batman)
6.) Harry/Luna (Harry Potter)
7.) Andre/Oscar (Rose of Versailles)
8.) Hakuba/Kaito (Magic Kaito)
9.) Otani/Koizumi (Lovely Complex)
10.) Lunge/Tenma (Monster)

This is by no means the only pairings I ship in each fandom. They're the main pairings I ship in each fandom, though. Also, why is there no femmeslash couples in this list? Dammit, in honor of femmeslash I'm going to make a completely separate list entirely for it.

1.) Anissina/Gisela (Kyou Kara Maou)
2.) Ran/Sonoko (Detective Conan)
3.) Shigeru/Sakurako (Hana Yori Dango)
4.) Poison Ivy/Harley Quinn (Batman)
5.) Mary Marvel/Wonder Girl a.k.a Mary Batson/Cassie Sandsmark(Teen Titans/Captain Marvel/Shazam)
6.) Hermione/Luna (Harry Potter)
7.) Oscar/Rosalie (Rose of Versailles)
8.) Renee Montoya/Kate Kane a.k.a The Question/Batwoman (Detective Comics)
9.) Wonder Woman/Artemis (Wonder Woman)
10.) Eva/Nina (Monster)

I just read chapter 7 of 07-Ghosts, and my heart is broken. ;_;

Still, I can't wait for the anime in April! I think I'm going to stop reading there and watch the rest in animated form. It's nice that there's something coming up that can fill the void that Kyou Kara Maou has left. I'm thinking about going back and re-watching all of the KKM episodes once season 3 has been fully subbed.

Speaking of KKM, Murder at Blood Pledge Castle is coming along pretty well, I'm just working on the plot some more. The Wolfram's suitors fic (which has no title at the moment) is being worked on as well, I'm just polishing up the plot and trying to decide what the end pairing will be. I think once I finish those two long fics, as well as the oneshot sequels to TAATS and everything from the Wolfram project, I might take a break from this fandom and write for others. I don't know yet, however.

Also, let me give a big Happy Birthday to [ profile] chalp! Hope you have a good one!

It's interesting, really. I've managed to fall somewhat back into the Batman fandom and fall somewhat out of the KKM fandom within the past week. WTF self?

Maybe it's because of the month-long KKM hiatus (LOL, it's only been one week), and the fact that the Dark Knight movie is coming out (as well as my having watched the Gotham Knights DVD shorts -- which were awesome btw)? I don't know. Or maybe I'm coming down from my new fandom high?

I still have a few fics I want to finish up however. Pretty much done with the Wolfram x Murata fic, just going back and hashing out a few things now (and inserting a crucial character that I totally did not intend to leave out). My Wolfram x Saralegui sequel is on hiatus because it seems forced (in other words, it's not coming together well for me right now -- for some reason it's starting to lose its lightheartedness, which is what I don't want). Also, my Wolfram x Yuuri "very unusual" mpreg fic will never see the light of day... >_>; I'd sooner post my Wolfram x Yozak one... D: I also have a Wolfram x Murata short that I have no clue what to do with... *sigh* I might insert it as "back story" for the long MuraWolf fic... It could explain the "moment" they started to... um... connect?

Also, I still haven't posted anything to my Detective Conan Fanfic 100 claim. I finished one, but I don't know, I don't think it's up to par enough to post. I have, however, started back working on "One Truth, Countless Lies". I had plotted that out months ago, and if I knew what I do now I would have written the bulk of it before posting any of it (I've found I work better that way).

One more thing: I wrote my first original short story -- I may post that after I rework it some. I've also been creating characters for an original (long) story I've been planning for about a year now -- I've written the "prologue" to that. I'm a late bloomer to writing, however -- so I'm still learning about characterization, etc. You're never too old to learn is my motto!
