Something I’m never sure how many other people notice is how much I like talking about writing. I like talking about where I get ideas from (the easy bit), how they get from being an idea to being a story (the hard bit) and all the other exciting pitfalls you have to get out of in the process of making it work outside your own head – but so I don’t sound completely self-absorbed, I should mention that I also love reading the same sort of stuff when other writers post it. It’s neat to get some sort of idea where others get their ideas from (and often as not, to find out everyone else falls into much the same pitfalls as you do). I’m never quite sure how many other people feel the same way about this kind of blather though – fortunately that’s exactly what LJ cuts are for.

Summary: It's nearly always safe to assume that whatever trouble the Tsubasa crew wind up in, there's going to be a feather involved somewhere in the middle of things. And it's probably even safer to assume that where the Elric brothers are involved, it's never going to be the Philosopher's Stone.

This has actually been finished for a couple of days now, but the Internet connection from where we're staying is not the most reliable thing. Only one more chapter left to go on this now! (and with any luck, the computer will cooperate enough for me to get that up before I get home too)

Making good progress with the next few parts, so I've actually got a chapter up early for a change. ^_^ And unless anything turns out to need any unusually major revisions, I'd say I finally have a solid idea of how many parts I'm aiming for too.

Ye gods, I was starting to think I was never going to get this thing posted. ^^; Let the record stand: beginnings are hard (though naturally harder when you start half way through and only the come back to them). Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] velithya and [livejournal.com profile] cigerfei for proof reading this for me.

Notes:
Written partially because Tsubasa is the sort of series you can cross with anything, and I happened to spot a few neat little parallels in the standard week-to-week plots of the early chapters of both series that amused me (see: fic summary). But mostly because the chance to put Ed and Syaoran in one place was too good to pass up. The sheer determination those boys approach their journeys with is pretty impressive stuff.

Timeline-wise, this would be set somewhere in the early volumes of Tsubasa (presumably past Outo country, since Syaoran's carrying around a sword, but not much further than that) and during early or pre-series FMA - in fact, it should probably be possible to follow this even if you're not more than very basically familiar with FMA at all.

You know those fic requests memes you see floating around on LJ. They generally say something along the lines of:

"Give me a character / pairing and / or a short prompt / outline of a scene / crossover idea / a summary of a giant epic / your favourite cliché / a fic I’ve written before / some other prompt-ish thing, and I’ll write you a sentence / drabble / ficlet / list of five (or more) things / first part of the story / last part of the story / sequel / missing scene / alternate version / whatever."

I always wanted to try one, but now that I finally feel like it’s a decent time for me to try it, I’m having trouble picking one out of so many different variations. So instead I’m going to say: send me a prompt of any kind or combination in that list (or any other kind you can think of, really) and I’ll see what I can do about coming up with something to go with it.

I’ll probably be aiming for something sentence to drabble length, but since this is my first go at anything remotely request meme-ish, the basic plan is to just see what comes to me. Obviously, I can’t make any promises that I’ll necessarily come up with something for any possible request, but I’m happy to have pretty much anyone show up to request whatever – although I will warn people that prompts involving smut or particularly weird pairings are most likely to result in me staring at the screen feeling embarrassed for a bit, and then going to work on something else.

Fandoms I've written for before - another one of these lists that is probably mostly for my own amusement )

Prompt at will.

I swear, if I ever manage to build a reputation in this fandom, it's going to be as the xxxHolic crossover girl.

Title:What You Wish For
Summary: Ed and Al stumble on to a shop which deals in an unusual sort of merchandise.
Spoilers: Nothing serious for either series.
Word count: 540
Notes: So, one of my larger projects right now is (what will be) a decently long Tsubasa/FMA crossover. This isn't part of that, but the similarity between the ideas of equivalent trade from FMA and Tsubasa's sister series intrigued me enough that they seemed worth exploring a short piece of their own.

Update from here, just because I like to keep track of these things.

Six down, one struggling, four new challengers. )

I like to think I’m making headway.
rallamajoop: (Default)
If the last few months of posts weren't proof enough, I've been writing rather a lot lately.

A few things which turned up while writing for Discworld or CLAMP recently: )

In related news, I sat down earlier and made a list of everything I've got in the to-do pile right now. It's long. Okay, it's always long, but the surprising part is I think there's actually a decent chance most of it will get done within a few months.

So it looked like it was time to dredge out that old unfinished-fic-meme, even if this is going to be mostly for my own reference:

The ones I’m working on now (xxxHolic, Discworld, Tsubasa, Kingdom Hearts) )

The ones I’m going to work on just as soon as I clear that list a little (Kingdom Hearts, Tsubasa, Full Metal Alchemist, Final Fantasy VII, more xxxHolic) )

The ones I haven’t touched in ages but still sort of plan to get back to (Naruto, more Kingdom Hearts, more FFVII, Original) )

That's sixteen different projects. Gonna be busy for a while over here.
