( Couldn't think of all that much to say. )
Before I get to that, though, thank you! I know I'm going to appreciate whatever you write for me!
- Slice of life
- Angst with emotional hurt/comfort
- Character-driven pieces and fun dialogue
- Plot, more of the character growth variety than the action/adventure variety, but both can be fun
- Genre or fandom based AUs
- Playful snark and banter
- Gore of any kind
- Character Death
- Body horror
- AUs where non-animal characters are animals.
( Fandom Notes )
Crocuses, chipmunks, and birdsongs, oh my! I love this time of year! And it's a slightly chilly, 'late winter in Florida'* type of Spring most days so far, which I'm loving. I run a little warm, so I love when it's a bit cold out.
My cosplays for Amethyst (Steven Universe) and Guzma (Pokemon Sun and Moon) are complete in the sense that all my purchases have been made for each! Just waiting on a handful of Etsy deliveries now... I also have the rest of the Steven Universe Funko Pops arriving today, oops. (You all might get pictures.)
But I love that I'm making decent money, and can buy little things on the side while still saving for my apartment! And speaking of making decent money... I have applied for a new job! I'm really, really hoping to get this receptionist position: the hours are consistent, I already know and like the people I'd be working with, and I'd be so good at it; I really believe that! Please hope for the best for me, guys!
*I do not live in Florida, I just used to be there in February with some frequency.
Life has been... Strange, but getting good. Family stuff. Some ties have been all but severed, and some bonds have been made stronger, but all in all, I can say everything is for the best.
There's an upcoming Pokemon Online Competition that I'll be eagerly signing up for! I believe my team is prepared. (The search for a Black Sludge would have been the biggest pain ever if I didn't find two shinies while going through Grimers!)
I realized yesterday - while browsing Etsy - that I desperately want to cosplay as Guzma (fem!Guzma, I suppose) in addition to Amethyst for the convention in July... I'll have to figure out if I can swing that. If I can, I think I'll use one pair of white sneakers for both Guzma and Amethyst, instead of getting the white booties for Amethyst. Shoes are so expensive.
My parents even gave me a gift! I got three Steven Universe Funko Pops: Amethyst and Pearl... And Steven! I need to get my hands on Garnet now, though. I fear they've awakened a beast. ;)
Relatedly: In my continued procrastination on a bigger writing project, I've created a Steven Universe OC. She's Moonstone, because I really love moonstones, and while I still don't have a cemented backstory for her - nor do I have a solid idea of what she looks like - I'm in love with her personality already. She's really fun to write about.
Fandom: Lilo & Stitch
Prompt: "Lilo as nonbinary. Aged-up or set during the films/series. Possible nonbinary Pleakly or Stitch as well."
Summary: In which Lilo comes home for their first college break, and has something to share.
Relationships: Lilo & Ohana, Nani/David, referenced Jumba/Pleakley
Warnings: Lilo is misgendered a few times, mostly before she comes out to them - although Jumba does slip a couple of times even after. There's also Stitch feeling ambiguous about his/their gender, despite being labeled male by the family. It's certainly never done with malice in either case, but still merits a warning.

I've been working on Camp NaNo, and I'm making good headway there - over 7.5k out of 10k, already!
There isn't a lot of other goings-on that are particularly exciting, to be honest. Work is taking up most of my time, and that will be especially true next week!
I hope everyone's been well!
First of all, let me say how excited and thankful I am. Now, I have never done a fic exchange that involves a letter before, so forgive me if this is unorthodox. I've read a few of the already-existing letters, and am more or less going off of those.
- Fluffy Slice of Life
- AU to any extent
- Children teaching new things to their parent figures or other adults
- Angst with emotional hurt/comfort
- Pieces that have a sort of character study feel
- Gore of any kind
- Explicit smut
- Any incest
- Non-Con or Dub-Con
- Body Horror
How to Train Your Dragon (Movies)
Gobber the Belch/Stoick the Vast & Hiccup
Angst is delightful here. Fics set before the first film are my strong preference, with established Gobber/Stoick,and Gobber trying to play mediator between Stoick and Hiccup while still being, you know, Gobber.
Alternatively, some slice of life family fluff set between the first and second films would be equally great.
Pearl & Steven Universe
This is definitely my favorite for 'child teaching an adult something new'! Seriously, Steven introducing Pearl to anything she's not familiar with. It can be a comedy of errors, really sweet, or a bit of both!
Li Lonnie & Mushu & Fa Mulan/Li Shang
Despite the fact that Descendants is cheesy as all get-out and Lonnie has very little characterization when you get down to it, I love the idea of the Li family so much! Honestly, Shang interests me less than the others, but just. Mulan as a wonderful, understanding mom and Mushu as a protective psuedo-uncle to Lonnie? Yes, please!
I really like the idea of a well-intentioned Mushu causing trouble for Lonnie, and Mulan and Shang helping her deal with the fall-out.
Thank you for your time! I look forward to whatever you write for me!
Aaand I just remembered that I had plans to do a private fic exchange over email with an irl friend of mine, but never emailed her because I had a stomach bug and mostly was sleeping for a while, then got busy with work. I better get on that!
Wish me luck!
Well, this is more of a plug for a Disney... Online event, but hey, what's March Magic without those t-shirts and posters?
Or, hey, you may be asking "What's March Magic?", period.
Disney creates a set of brackets where "teams" are created based on popular Magic Kingdom rides. Last year, the Hollywood Tower Bellhops won, I believe?
I don't really follow this that closely, but I love to look at the art used for the t-shirts and posters. This year, at least, Disney fans can voice their vote on Disney World's facebook page, although I have yet to figure out... How, oops.
Once I do figure it out, my votes for each bracket are figured out. The team I'm hoping gets a win is the Imagination Institute Dreamfinders. I've always loved Figment and the whole Journey into Imagination ride as it's existed in my lifetime, but when I discovered the original song and the new comics, I became an even bigger fan.
|1.||Enemies to lovers||2.||Meeting the family/parents||3.||Reunions||4.||Road trip||5.||Alternate Universe|
I only truly ship Pearl with Bismuth at this point, although I'm several episodes behind, as well, so we'll see. Anyway, that means I'll be writing some ships I only ship-ish, or used to ship more than I do now.
For the curious, the planned ships, in order that the prompts appear:
02. Pearl/Mystery Girl
08. Pearl/adult!Lilo (Lilo & Stitch) (subject to change)
Bird Keeper Toby is the Poketuber I follow, and whose videos always make me sit back and say, "Huh, that would be so great to do!".
Also, I still haven't watched the Tangled tv movie! I was working last night, and probably won't be able to catch it until tomorrow.
The new 'Dream Big, Princess' video by Disney features Princess Elena, so... Is she part of the official line-up now? That would be pretty cool! I've only seen three episodes of Elena of Avalor so far, and it's - you know, it's a kiddie show, but it is very cute and fun!
I have three days off starting today, because scheduling at work is inconsistent - but hey, that's fine with me! I'm going to do some intense cleaning starting today, so that should be... Okay, not fun, but rewarding, at least!
I also need to borrow their copy of How to Train Your Dragon 2, soooo...
I'm behind on Steven Universe AND Big Bang Theory by three episodes each, so I'm hoping to fix that today, as well. I don't go into work until 4:30 today, and I'll basically be in until closing after that. Not bad at all, since the store usually gets pretty quiet after 5 or 6.
I am now officially and completely settled on a Camp NaNo project, and I'm wildly excited about what I've come up with! I need to get some planning in, though, or it's going to be a total mess.
I hope everyone's doing well!
Oh, right, and Pokemon Moon update! Team remains the same, although I'm on Poni Island, so Ella should be evolving soon! More excitingly... Between carrying over Pokemon from my first run via Pokemon Bank, and a lot of GTS trading, I have already completed the Pokedex and gotten the Shiny Charm!
- High School AU - classic and simple, and easier to write in terms of research, but more difficult - for me at least - to inject plot into.
- Pokemon AU - I'd be going with an Alola AU, naturally, with Hiccup as either a Sinnoh native or a native to a Region I'd create, who has just moved to Alola. I don't think I'd follow the plot of Sun and Moon; it make take place after it, though, so some events could be referenced.
- Canon Melding AU - Basically, Polynesian!Hiccup as one of the villagers around Moana's age in Motunui. They'd be childhood friends, and honestly, this would work best as a retelling of Moana, the film. The problem is, retellings are very hard to pull off - again, for me at least - without getting to verbatim.
