HEY FOLKS, THE LJ FAIL JUST GOT WORSE.

PEOPLE ARE FINDING OUT THAT AUTOMATIC PAYMENTS ARE BEING ENABLED WHEN THEY PREVIOUSLY DISABLED THEM. http://news.livejournal.com/140511.html?thread=98346463#t98346463

IF YOU HAVE PAID ACCOUNTS, CHECK THEM.

CAPSLOCKING FOR JUSTICE (OR LAZINESS, RATHER)!

LJ has finally bumped it's mahfuggin' head all the way with this ugly new format and removing the goddamn subject lines and ability to preview. I'm going to start the complete move over to Dreamwidth soon. http://shazafram.dreamwidth.org

I've finally buckled down and decided to get a beta because my current ongoing fic is sprawling and I need direction. Why is it so hard to find a beta reader? I've looked at the beta profiles on ff.net and lol forever. Someone needs to beta some of those profiles...

Anyone have suggestions where I can look? Should I ask on one of the main KKM comms? Or is that just asking for trouble, lol?

Also, who's doing NaNoWriMo this year? I thought about it, but I've been feeling so sick I don't think I can commit to it this year. If I do, either I'll finish the book from last year (Urban Paranormal Lit, fuck yeah!), write a prequel to it (because I think it would come off better if I wrote out some events that happened prior to this book re: the protagonist's father), or write some long dramatic-ass swan song fanfic for Kyou Kara Maou.

Alright, y'all, I need you guize to solve a girlfight between a blaeaboo (black weeaboo) and a tweeblaboo (tiny black weeaboo).

Which Hana Yori Dango insert song is superior?



VS.



This is serious business. It comes down to choice of movie from the Redbox tomorrow, and I do NOT want to see the damn Tooth Fairy for the fifth time, lol.

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.

Finished watching season 3 of House. I think the only opinion I have of the characters that changed was that I now like Chase much more than I did before. I've been slightly spoiled for later seasons, but not so much that I can't enjoy watching them. I still do not have an OTP (or, rather, a pairing that I'm giddy over), nor do I believe that I will participate in any fanworks for the series (that might change, but honestly, I don't know).

Also, I've been a bit down for the past few weeks. Okay, I've been a whole lot of down (and crying. I HATE to cry.). Picspams of my various OTPs would cheer me up *hint hint wink*.

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.

Today, the last lolz of December was posted in [livejournal.com profile] capslock_kkm in the final December FML post. We hardly knew ye, FML Wednesday.

Come participate!

Also, I made chili in the slow cooker today, and two hours before it got done I lost my sense of smell and taste due to this cold. FML. :(

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.

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 )

Title: The Worst KKM Fic That I could Possibly Write
Author: Batty_Gal a.k.a Tetra26
Rating: M (for swearing)
Fandom: Kyou Kara Maou
Pairing: Yuuri x Tetra Sue, Günter x Anissina (WTF?), onesided Wolfram x Yuuri
Word Count: 2197
Fic Type: Oneshot Parody
Summary: Transfer student Tetra Sue Daikenjanetta von Wincott travels to Shin Makoku with Yuuri after introducing herself to him and instantly gaining his trust. She's the most sparkly, beautiful being, and she has psychic dreams! Of course everyone falls in love with her, except Wolfram – who will try to harm her cause he's an evil brat! Yuuri/Tetra Self-Insert! Intentional OOCness! Bad Grammar! Annoying Author's Notes in the Middle of Sentences! Fanbrat Japanese! Netspeak! Random Smileys! Anti-Yaoi Propaganda! Crappy Plot! Wolfram Bashing! Did I miss anything?

There is only one way to settle this! )
