1) I finally got to watch Toy Story 3 yesterday. Not gonna lie, I cried at the end. I mean, I was straight up boo-hooing. It was an excellent movie, by far my favorite out of the three.

2) Out of boredom, I watched Tyler Perry's "Daddy's Little Girls" Saturday night. I have to say, it was much better than I thought it would be, though some of Tyler's "issues" with black women (particularly those who are educated) were still present. Still, not nearly as much misogyny as "Why Did I Get Married?" (I didn't bother watching the sequel, ugh), and the plot, though a bit weak and cliche in parts, was far more decent than some of the things he's come out with.

Speaking of Tyler Perry and black women, I still haven't decided whether or not to see "For Colored Girls". I mean, the cast is excellent (and it's sad that Tyler Perry is one of the ONLY people giving black actors/actresses of this caliber work), and I know he is only adapting the work from someone else, but I don't know. I have a habit of walking away from his movies pissed off.

3) My NaNo fic is stalled. I decided to start late, and did not have time to plan it out accordingly. I still have time to at least get it up to 50k (it stands at 22k right now), but if I don't like where it is heading, what's the point?

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.

1) So, I rewatched Hana Yori Dango the anime (and re-read the manga), HYD the J-drama, and I finally watched Meteor Garden I (I didn't bother watching Meteor Garden II because I read the synopsis and it seems as if they took the amnesia plot and dragged it out across 31 episodes) for the first time ever. I have yet to watch the Korean Boys Over Flowers, so I'm going to save my actor/plot comparisons until then.

I will say that I cannot decide which one was better between HYD J-drama and Meteor Garden, but I do like them both for what they are (and initially, I did not like the HYD J-drama at all but once again, that's because I did not appreciate the changes at the time).

2) I'm working on a few pieces exploring Mimasaka Akira, the most underrated and under-explored member of the F4 (and my favorite after Domyouji Tsukasa). Most of them are drabbles, but I do want to do something longish on him.

3) I'm working on my first crossover. Woot!

4) Decided to split the next chapter of Suitors into two. It's close to 10000 words. I'm happy, though: I've finally decided on a direction. I just want to write it in this direction a bit more before posting any of it.

1) I've decide to do my Black History posts every other day, with 2 in one most days. Logically, though I had the idea to do this back in November, I should have planned ahead on which person/event etc. I wanted to tackle daily. LOL I suck at organization.

2) I'm going over and putting the last touches on Chapter 7 of Suitors

3) Rufus ♥-> Shinou ♥->Diakenja ♥->Rufus and its effects on Murata & Wolfram would make a good idea for a fic Y/N?

4) If someone can find a pic (or more) of Wolfram and Saralegui alone together (doesn't matter what they are doing) I will love them forever.

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.

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").

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 )
shazafram: (Default)
As of Saturday (it's Sunday here right now, lol), this week I clocked in at 17,991 words this week, which is less than twenty words more than last week.

Total NaNoWriMo count is:



35,970! Who would have thought I could write that much? LOL I didn't.

It's funny, though. I'm not completely in love with this plot, but I'm in love with the characters that keep popping up. I still haven't done any character sheets, but it's alright. Every time I'm writing a scene with one of them, I throw in an aspect of their personality.

Which reminds me: guess which KKM character unintentionally showed up in one of my characters? Three hints:

1) It's a he.
2) He is very possessive (hyuk hyuk hyuk).
3) He is not Wolfram.

Who's that man? )

Watched it last night. LOVED it! Not only was Batman awesome, but so was Amanda Waller (hoshit I ship Lex/Amanda - and not EVEN as a crack pairing) and even Superman didn't job to the other heroes (he was the shit in this!). It could have been longer, plus a lot of what happened in the comics was left out, but understandable.

Of course, one of my favorite parts was when Captain Marvel showed up. I wish they had fought longer, however, but I'm almost certain it was that way in the actual comics. I'm going to go back and read it again later on (haven't read it in years). I do know I want that theme song so very bad now. I also wish they would just animate the Superman/Batman comic books altogether.

Either way, this is another animated feature that I can point to and go "See? American stories don't always suck!". Also, after watching I immediately wrote a short fic. I'll post that in a few days, probably, after I post the last part to "Kinks". Looks like I'm back into the Batman/Superman game! I'll be going back and retooling the three Batman fics I posted on here along with my older KKM fics.

Though I'm still butthurt over the recent news that Mouri Kogoro's seiyuu is being replaced, the Detective Conan series has been drawing me back in with the latest manga arc. I ♥ Inspector Shiratori so much!

Speaking of detective anime, there's rumors that a group is going to pick up the anime Kindaichi Shonen no Jikenbo again, starting with episode 13 (or was it 14?). I hope this pans out, because I love that show about as much as Detective Conan. I'm also bored, and need a new series to watch - preferably mystery/thriller.

As for comic books, Batman Beyond is going to get a new mini! And, I just wanted to pimp out Batman and Sons, by [livejournal.com profile] the_dark_cat which is a cute webcomic dealing with Batman as a father. I have never laughed so hard at a portrayal of Batman before. Serious Batman business fanboys would go off into a hissy fit over this, I bet.

Speaking of comics, Billy Batson and the Magic of Shazam is the only one I'm reading right now. I'm thinking about picking up Batgirl since I'm highly pleased by who's the new Batgirl. The new Robin can go DIAF, however; I hate him.
