karanguni: (BARACK chibi)
So, who's the crazy person who has decided to give as many people on the flist a present as she can? I AM! *BEAMS* In the spirit of the new year and attempting to kick my ass back into action. I've taken what prompts you guys have given me over the last however-many-times-I-decided-to-click-previous-entries, and have spun what I can. Happy new year! ♥ from this side of the universe.

[livejournal.com profile] dnatio_memoriae generously donated her art skillz for a couple of these, and may be contributing more in the morning! IS THE WORLD NOT A BEAUTIFUL PLACE. OH YES, IT IS. ♥

numinicious - Lucifer (Lucifer, postcard) )

dnatio_memoriae: Baccano! (Luck, Claire, writing on the wall) )

white_jenna: Final Fantasy VII (Tseng, cocktail napkin) )

muse_lightning: nasdack FFVII AU (Tseng, Elena, post-its) )

knightlineninja: Cowboy Bebop (Spike, short letter) )

voksen: Baccano! (Czes, longhand letter) )

logistika_nyx: nasdack AU (Elena/Tseng: he's full of wishful thinking) )

misura: nasdack AU (Dark Nation, Rufus) )

If you feel you have been deprived a present, feel free to dump a prompt of any sort on me! After all, Chinese New Year (ha! coming from me, least traditional of people!) lasts a good long while, technically! :D Right now I am going to lean back in my seat and let my eyes explode for a while. ♥
karanguni: (Anderson COOPER says ?)
Somehow, I just keep sending myself to hell over and over and over again. It's like some terminal illness inspired by [livejournal.com profile] evercourant. SOMEBODY PLEASE STOP ME. Disclaimer again: I DON'T KNOW THEM. I DON'T - OH GOD - WANT TO DO ANYTHING TO THEM. PLEASE DON'T HURT ME. THIS IS ALL FICTION. I PLEAD INSANITY.

Pundits/Rahm, again. Follows up from this crazy thing.

All's Fair in War and, Well. Mostly Just War

Fandom: Pundits and fakepolitics
Characters: Rahm and Anderson, with Stephen and Jon.
Rating: PG13.
Summary: Anderson really wants his friends to just get along. It's all right; Rahm will make that (censored) happen.

2192 words, and please someone shoot me in the head, it would be a mercykilling.

'You got a chance to send him a Christmas gift and you didn't send him anthrax?' )
karanguni: (RAHM shhh)
TWO FICS IN ONE BECAUSE I'M SERIOUSLY AFRAID OF GOING TO HELL. I actually am going to slap a disclaimer on this: I KNOW NOTHING. I KNOW NO ONE. ALL OF THIS IS FAKE. PLEASE DON'T SHOOT ME.

Anderson Cooper/Rahm Emanuel

PG13, 2780 words and Rahm Emanuel picking up a new boy.

Caveat lector: I know close to nothing about CNN, and even less about politics! But that's okay, because Anderson Cooper is hot. I have no title for this thing, but it goes out to [livejournal.com profile] haydn (who propogated the idea with these blisteringly hot pictures of A.Cooper), [livejournal.com profile] charlie_d_blue and [livejournal.com profile] evercourant, all my psychotic enablers.


Rahm Emanuel does not make friends; he makes allies, makes family, he makes protégés and then he makes those protégés into men.  )

Fic 2:

My only excuse is... I have no excuse. Pundits/Rahmfic, ho!

Take Me To The Liberalmediagame

Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert, Anderson Cooper and Rahm Emanuel. PG13. 2452 words.

Stephen wants Rahm on the Report. Rahm just wants, more or less, to make Anderson laugh. Sort-of-not-really follow up post to the fic above.

This is the fault of [livejournal.com profile] evercourant, whom I stole a few lines from, and also [livejournal.com profile] kaiserkuchen, who provided sinful pictures and links to AC stuff.

Caveat lector: I am so new to these people that sometimes I have no idea what I'm doing. 8D

Rahm gives him a four-and-a-half wave goodbye. )
karanguni: (BALTHIER works)
Strange Untitled Stockmarket!AU

Fandom: Final Fantasy VII/Final Fantasy XII/The Stock Exchange
Rating: PG-99
Characters: Balthier/Tseng, Tseng/Rufus
Summary: Tseng's in New York, Balthier's in London, and Rufus is in the sky as the world burns around them. Hedging on futures can be such tricky things.
Functional explanation: It's all [livejournal.com profile] logistika_nyx's fault. A good chunk of this belongs to her, adapted to fit the situation and tense. You can read the original crack-ery here to see precisely which bits. Nyx: I apologise. Profusely. But probably not profusely enough.

Mostly, this is just a trader!AU: in which Tseng and Balthier make money on the gone-to-shit stock markets of our world. And Rufus waggles his eyebrows a bit. Hooray!

2425 words and oh, such a hell I am going to for this. Beware un-beta'd tense shifts!

'Are you an optimist?' Balthier would say into the receiver, when Tseng picked up. )
karanguni: (DICK swings weird)
I'm not sure if I'm allowed to call this a "drabble" arc anymore...

And lead is light as a feather

Fandom: Batman/Batman Beyond
Rating: PG
Characters: Bruce, Dick, Terry
Warnings: Assumes RotJ has happened. Assumes comics!history. Bruce, because this man deserves a warning all on his own. Typical Batman Relationships (TM).
Summary: Following his 50 year displacement, Dick learns about all the things that have - and have not - changed in the era of Terry McGinnis.

Second in the Better Dead than Lead arc.

4746 words and I'm not even halfway through the list of tiny things I'm supposed to write and oh god, Bruce, why do you have mental sex with everyone?

It's automatic for Dick to say, 'It wasn't your fault.' )

Mmm, life

karanguni: (LUCIFER morningstar)
Only a few more papers left to go, then it'll be a straight month of flailing right through to the other set of major examinations. 8D This makes me feel alternately fuzzy and terrified.

Brain is beginning to congeal from the sheer lack of writing. I did a literature paper the other day after an aeon of maths and other weird subjects I realise now that I hardly like at all, and jesus, LIKE COMING HOME.

Have great plans for post-examination fic-writing sprees, in which I will sleep very little and write like a demon and laugh a lot at things that aren't there. Also planning on doing a few more craft-y things; mostly cards and letters and maybe t-shirt designs.

[livejournal.com profile] livelongnmarry stuff will get worked upon very, very soon. 8D Six notebooks in two weeks = writing like a demon in large handwriting. Next time, I bite off slightly less large chunks of things.

Hopefully people are still alive? (Psst: I still find it kinda funny how [livejournal.com profile] knightlineninja and [livejournal.com profile] logistika_nyx both ended up really busy around the same time I did. MAYBE THE CRACK MONSTERS, THEY ARE TAKING REVENGE, JA?) So much has been going on that I feel like my head's falling off. Y'know - hurricanes everywhere (no one is in the region, I hope?), the Republican ticket, the 7th anniversary of 9/11 (I'm so far away - but I remember that day more clearly than I remember a lot of things), my country being hilarious (suddenly we discover that we need licenses to operate valet services? Oh, plus we're tagging every single cigarette that comes in through our borders. Oh, and sueing the Dow Jones). LIFE.

Also, internets and LJ working proper-properly for the first time in a while - time to do the 1-week-late-responding-to-posts-and-comments thing...

[edit] There's another feel good anonymous meme going around; I pimp to pass it on. 8D Everyone needs more love! *TAKES OUT SHOVEL TO DIG IN*
karanguni: (try your LUCK)
Revision is turning my brain into slush. I haven't written in what feels like a bajillion years. My keyboard feels foreign to me. Also, Batman.

Drabble ahead. Caveat lector: I am not your happy canonical DC fan. I am a sorry little n00b who watched a few episodes of Justice League (/Unlimited), read a few compiled comics collections, sprinted through Batman Beyond, fangirled at The Dark Knight, and who will make 500000 assumptions about Batman and Co. 8D YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.

if I told you I felt ageless

Rating: PG13
Characters: Terry, LazarusPit!Bruce. Is that a comma, or a slash? Who knows - who can tell? Bruce is everything all at the same time. I don't think age even matters, for him.
Warnings: Set after the Batman Beyond episode "Out of the Past".

1241 words, and I have a bad feeling about this, master. Please let this (not?) turn into a series. Oh god oh god. Too late. Counting Down The Hours arc.

If I told you I felt ageless )

Need Terry icons and Bruce icons and Dick icons like woah, now.

A universe of unmapped grief and love
And new master light is beyond
The pleiades and plow and southern stars.

O soaring
Icarus of outworld, burn bright
The traceries of known skymarks,
Slide the highway planets behind
Your clear waxed wings.

Go conquer the everywhere left
Beyond your sad confinement
In a predicted bonehouse,
Witch thrown riddle of flesh
And water.

O soar until nothing
remains but great glittering holes
In the black godspun shirt over your head.
