[POSTDATED] Welcome To My World

[Sticky Entry]

Hello! Please call me Ai. This LJ is a mirror of my main fandom journal, which is on Dreamwidth: I'm [personal profile] love there.

This is a fandom journal--I don't read this friends list anymore, but I will continue to use this journal for fannish posts and to post fanfiction to apples_for_me. Feel free to friend/watch; you don't need my permission. ♥ If you are here for the fiction or fanfic, it's over at apples_for_me. ^_^ I'm always open to discussions, but I am anti-spoilers. Please check my anime list and manga list if you want to know what I've watched/am watching!

ETA: There are no direct/overt links from this journal to my "real" LJ out of this page to make sure Google or business acquaintances don't connect the dots: fandom people who are interested should feel free to ask me for my "real" LJ name through PM or e-mail. ♥

Good Job, Ai

Well-meant chat intended to help me brainstorm turns into me ranting about (1) certain fan interpretations of canon that I disagree with and (2) character motivation issues that mean my entire premise is borked, and I cannot see a clear path through it without involving OOC on someone's part.

*sighs* Good job, Ai. *can't keep sarcasm out of inner!voice* Go bug your husband for some reassurance or this is going to be yet another night full of anxious tossing. You've had way too many of these lately just stressing about deadlines and fic. You don't need to add interpersonal things to the mix.

Woe

*sighs* What I should be doing is working on longfic. However, longfic is hard and requires plotting and thinking and planning consequences and chains. Shortfic/drabble is easier than longfic, because who needs planning?

T_T But shortfic is not what my deadline is for. Woe is me.

NPT Fics to Read ^_^

I can't believe I totally forgot to post the NPT fics I got! O_o Bad Ai, no cookie. I asked for many things, but one of the things I wanted to read was Pacific Rim OC robots... and I got two lovely lesbian Jaeger pilots and the Mark-6 Jaeger California Dreamin'. <3  My anon was good to me--lesbian pilots for the win!  <3 <3 <3

And!  I got a treat, which I totally did not expect!  *more hearts*  Even better, it was Castle banter of the awesome kind for a good cause.  Charity sounds just like something the characters would say in Castle! <3

I'll post the fics I wrote after reveals.  ^_^ Cross-posted; click here to reply on Dreamwidth (comment count unavailable comments so far).

I need a minder T_T

*drools at opening video for Dual Destinies*

*drools at latest Dresden book Skin Game (3-week loan from library)*

*drools at what she’s going to do for Club Imperial*

… *realizes she has to prioritize because she still hasn’t written any of the fic she actually has a deadline for (less than a month away), she hasn’t finished comnposing any of the music for the game, and how on earth did she manage to make her plate overflow with even more commitments after she clearly said she was going to take a hiatus*

T_T I need a minder.

Ai is Impatient

Having fics betaed really slows down my posting speed, but at the same time, the fics are much better for being betaed. I will have to be satisfied with this not-quite-instant (but still pretty fast) gratification. If I ever get published, waiting MONTHS will be torture. T_T

ETA: Damn. When beta comments result in a pretty major rewrite, I have to say that I'm glad I was forced to wait. The resulting fic packs a heavier punch and is definitely a lot clearer because my betas force me to make decisions I normally wimp out on.

Writers are lucky in life to have good betas... I have a whole army of fantastic betas to draw upon. I often get reminders of just how lucky I am; this is yet another one. ♥

2014 Word Count Update

AO3 tells me I now have written 51,100+ words in 2014 (I don't think this includes my NPT fic, though I could be wrong.) This is an increase of 6,500 or so words since the last time I posted a word count update on June 15, so that's 6,500 words in 2 weeks. As I am now entering 2Q close busy season, I doubt the word count is going to budge much in the next month or so; I am hoping I will be able to write at least 5k though, as I owe my installment of Super Sekrit Project. (Is it even still a secret? ^_^;)
