Beeeeta. I am beeeeeta'ing a story. Well, copy-editing for the most part: a bigbang story by [ profile] jezrana. It is awesome! ...just very, very long! My concentration, she suffers, trying to find ze lost commas and wayward prepositions. On page...29 38 43 of 127.

So here you go, internet: a completely unasked for original story! Well, part of it. The rest of it is on my hard drive and uh. in my brain. Wasn't planning on really posting it, but why have it languishing? I'll just get more and more OCD because I'm a compulsive editor, so hopefully this'll just get me to focus on the next parts.

(In the process, I have learned much about formatting from Word to LJ. *brainhurt*)

Seriously, if anyone knows a good way to transfer from Word to LJ/Semagic, let me know. This is such a pain the ass.

And hey, if you care to read--thanks! Am not honestly expecting anyone to, but feedback & constructive criticism much welcomed. You will not fatally wound my ego, only bruise it delightfully.

How to Fall Off Tightropes
by cinderfallen 
PG-13 | original | het/slash | 3,000 words
Summary: Some people have elaborate Russian nesting doll collections. Others amass an alarming amount of poisoned antique bobby pins. Christopher thinks he has a freakish knack for collecting freaks.

Part 1 )
I wrote for Her Majesty's Dog, A Dog Dreams on Kirkegaard Hill. My recipient asked for something sweet, and I tried--although I'm more than fairly sheepish at my attempt, as I was (and am) still trying to finish final papers that aren't coming. I had to scramble very last minute to cobble together a much more involved story I jotted down in my notes than I had time to produce. I'm relieved she did like it, though.

I got Black Moon in the Afternoon Sky, an amazing story by Melymbrosia set in the manga After School Nightmare. If you read my half-coherent comment on the story, it manages to contain every single thing I absolutely LOVE about the manga.


After School Nightmare: Some background and pictures. )

Just. Guh. To recap and summarize: The gender politics--genderfuckery, people--the respect the story pays to the plot and to its characters, the intelligence quotient of the entire piece, and the HOTNESS. There is a scene later in the series that I found hotter, more intimate than entire PWPs, and it's one kiss. The mangaka is amazing. She conveys so much with so little, and with such talent; a lot of times, the things that go unsaid between the characters are almost palpable. My breath fucking caught.

I can't do any sort of justice to the manga here, which is filled with nuance and detail, so I offer the first volume for download for you to check out: After School Nightmare vol 1

Over River, Through the Woods

Disclaimer: Koori no Mamono Monogatari / Ice-Cold Demon’s Tale - Shiho Sugiura
Summary: To Grandmother’s house we go.
A/N: I discovered this snippet the other day. I probably had plans with it, but it works just as well as a little day-in-the-life of little Ishuca. The sugar, it kills.


Read the story )


In the spirit of completeness, I'm posting an old story so that I can tag it on LJ. (And forgetting that I wrote some other things. Artistic license at work: if I so will it, it never existed.)

Title: Roading: Only Just Beginning )

Series: Koori no Mamono Monogatari / Ice-Cold Demon's Tale
Summary: The road to Toei in a nutshell: heat, banter, owies, temple-worshippers, navel-gazing, partial redemption via etiquette, and a big mug of mystery tea. Also featuring Ferio, the psycho chicken.

(I will not apologize for quality, I will not apologize for quality!)

I figure, I will never finish this story at the rate I'm going. So why not post what I have and move on? (Move on to the next part, that is.) So I'll be posting as I finish, I suppose...

Part 1 )

You know what I really, really, really want?

More icons. Lots and lots more icons.

And some writing talent, SWOOPING writing talent. Not bashing.
