ALSO, if people need a pick me up, I'll take prompts in any fandom I know. Or just ask me to write something original.

OKAY US GOVERNMENT, YOU CAN TAKE MY MENTAL HEALTH AND YOU CAN TAKE MY SENSE OF REALITY AND YOU CAN TAKE MY EVERYTHING BUT YOU CAN'T TAKE MY WORDS.

Basically, my life is mostly shambles. Writing makes things less shambly. Give me a prompt - any fandom in the tags; hell, any fandom: I'll look it up and make stuff up if I have to at this point - just give me something to do that isn't fall apart at my computer screen. It would help beyond words.
karanguni: (CLAIRE is amazed)
Question time! Doing stuff for [livejournal.com profile] shifgrethor over the next few weeks, so if any of you reading this are interested in LJ styles and icons and stuff, just gimme a shoutout of things you'd like to see done for tutorials? :D \o/

And if you're not interested in that kind of stuff, well, uh, I guess - LEAVE WRITING PROMPTS 8D 8D 8D
karanguni: (Alex KRAPANOS)
HI GUYS MAKE ME WRITE I AM SERIOUS MAKE ME WRITE. If I code and/or design and/or icon anymore I am going to lose the ability to type or something; I feel my brain melting; I haven't thought about writing for a week? More than a week? TOO LONG.

CURE ME

I'LL WRITE ANYTHING.

Also, Amatsuki. Who's watching it? And why is there no lj community for it? It's got pretty people! And Suwabe Junichi AND Okawa Toru in the same place! That's Tseng and Rufus! And hot boys!

[edit] There be fic in comments.

- Tseng and Zack and Aerith
- Tseng and Cissnei and Cloud with bad evil character death
karanguni: (JUDGE)
Mmm, ficspam. Working on everything that I'm not meant to be working on, as usual.

[edit] Because I have no willpower whatsoever: Rufus/Tseng porn. Tseng's going to have one hell of a laundry bill.

Personal ref of random blabbery ideas for the prompts I've got left to do \o/ ENGLISH IS NOT A LANGUAGE THAT I CAN SPREAK. Go ahead. Comment. I DARE YOU. )

Also, Iron Man fic rec of major amazingness: The Value of Secrets by Maya Tawi. Jarvis/Tony Stark. You know you want to.

Meanwhile, a FMA/Final Fantasy VII drabble of mine on IJ, linked to avoid 242904 Posts of Death on your flist. Zack and Hawkeye and dogs. Yes, dogs.

And then the real post:

Title: When The World Ends
Fandom: Baccano!/Ocean's 11
Characters: Claire; Rusty, Luck, Danny and Linus cameos
Rating: PG
Warnings: Crossover written for the No True Pair challenge over at IJ; prompt being: Rusty and Claire: it's the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fine. Genfic is the way to go, because I fail at plot and all that other cool stuff. D:
Summary: Playing poker until Armageddon.

2192 words and the epic failure of plot!sense. \o/

Time for an old man to get to bed. )
karanguni: (RUFUS looks)
This mid-week is shaping up to be pretty hellish, so I sat down and pounded something out and viola, more Tseng! 8D Flist, you are more than welcome to prompt anything that involves this boy, because oh god do I want to write to take my mind off the blunt weapon of School and Stuff (TM).

[edit:] To make a crappy day even better, am I the only one for whom LJ email comment notifications are getting eaten?

Meanwhile, I'm working through the other prompts (I WILL FINISH ALL OF THEM I SWEAR).

This is not me totally drowning in prompts, oh no, not me. Challenge deadlines? What are those? I like the swooshing sounds they make as they go past. 8D

This one's for [livejournal.com profile] knightlineninja, who gave one of the most amazing prompts ever:

If I knew the way
I'd seek it out and set forth too;
With scarlet leaves
Woven into offerings,
Autumn has departed


I apologise; I kind of failed at the Zack part of things. DDDDD: I promise to try and stick more of the spikyhairedman in in another place!

Title: Autumn Has Departed
Rating: PG
Characters: Tseng, Rufus cameo, mentions of Zack
Summary: After the stigma comes the cleansing. Everyone in Shinra has their own forms of absolution; Tseng's is pilgrimage.
Warnings: Set after AC, with a whole lot of arbitrary worldbuilding thrown in for kicks.

1527 words and surprise-attack banter from Rufus, even if he isn't the main character here. Go figure!

'There's something I need to do,' Tseng replied. )
karanguni: (RUFUS looks)
Working my way through the prompts one by one now. For [livejournal.com profile] aikonamika (Turks on a no-kill job):

Title: 5 Times Tseng Did Interesting Negotiations
Rating: PG
Characters: Tseng, implied Tseng/Rufus and a whole bunch of cameos
Warnings: I jump canons like I jump rope.
Summary: Tseng doesn't have to get blood on his hands to make a point.

1252 words and more timeline jumps than you can shake a stick at.

Looking back, Veld had found it as important to teach Tseng how to speak as it was to teach him how to kill. )
karanguni: (JUDGE)
Things to write for people:

- [livejournal.com profile] knightlineninja: Zack and Tseng; either Crazy Ronin Fic or Winter Is Coming!!! or Welcome To Wutai (TM)

If I knew the way
I'd seek it out and set forth too;
With scarlet leaves
Woven into offerings,
Autumn has departed


- [livejournal.com profile] aikonamika: Turks; no-kill job: PROSTITUTION RING ANYONE fjalsjflas or THE TEN TIMES TSENG DID INTERESTING NEGOTIATIONS why am I using capslock smash smash

- schatterstern @ IJ: friendly fire: all I can think about is that line from Sage Francis' song Slow Down Gandhi: friendly fire - that's a funny term, like "civil war".

- [livejournal.com profile] shadowwaker: Rufus; acting evil being good: PROSTITUTION! I really need to stop thinking so much about Rufus and just start writing him. If I can canon-bash through Tseng, I SHOULD BE ABLE TO -- *falters and fails*

- [livejournal.com profile] logistika_nyx: Yuffie versus Tseng, TSENG WINS, because Tseng is a Hippy Tree Hugger (TM). Sort of. Kind of. Almost. Yeah.

[[Anyone else that didn't leave prompts in the last post is invited to leave them now!]]

Also, hi:

Have any of you guys travelled to Japan before? And know cheap but good places to stay? Or really cool places to visit? Am planning a trip with friends and really want to keep my budget as low as low can go (otherwise I necessarily sell my soul in the interim). :D :D :D

And as a potential side note, anyone know anything about travelling cheap in the Toronto and New York regions? If I'm going alone I can bunk out in Canada with a friend, but since I'm thinking of taking people with me I'm looking for good places to put them if it works out.

INTERNETS I KNOW THAT YOU ARE POWERFUL. PROVE ME RIGHT!
karanguni: (HUGHES junshou)
Just decided to take a break today on the writing front; I'm so braindead from coming home, doing an exam and then rushing three challenge fics that I blew off a Springkink deadline. I think I'll feel guilty about that, but not until tomorrow morning. 8D

Just a bit of meta-rambling about the last three months or so of fic )
karanguni: (roy MUSTANG)
Sat down today and threshed out a couple of the prompts from a few days ago. RL kicked me in the face for a while, so response this time is a bit slow. D: ♥ to everyone, and [livejournal.com profile] obabscribbler I swear I will wrench that Cissnei/Zack thing from the depths of my brain eventually! For now:

Wings: Balthier/Reno for [livejournal.com profile] ununoriginal (probably not what you were asking for, sorry!) None who have always been free can understand the terrible fascinating power of the hope of freedom to those who are not free.

794 words, because my brain doesn't seem to understand the concept of "drabble".

You've got wings. )

Rookie: Elena and the Turks, for [livejournal.com profile] aikonamika. Fitting into the job is hard for everyone; it's particularly hard when you keep wondering if they're looking down on you because you're a girl. It's even harder when you have a crush on your superior officer.

1595 words, and have I ever mentioned that I have real issues when it comes to drabbles? Warnings for language and a few almost-not-quite NSFW scenes.

She didn't ask questions of what she was, only who. )


Also, a repost of the shoes-and-FFVII-people tidbit from the comments in the previous post:

Mmm, the taste of crack in the morning. )

Doubleplus: flist meme! Well, not really, but for serious - I don't know you guys half as well as I should. I barely know which country most of you guys are in. *g* So:

i. Where are you from? (eg: Earth?)
ii. What do you do? (eg: professional paint dryer?)
iii. What is the air-speed velocity of an unladen swallow Which fandoms do you sail ships for?
iv. Poker or blackjack? (because this is rly, rly important)
v. Ask me a question (eg: "how many legs do you have?")

So if you're new to the flist (and even if you aren't), or if you've been reading but not saying anything, STAB THE COMMENT BUTTON AND SAY HELLO. No one will bite!

AND TRUTH: MORE PEOPLE NEED TO JOIN [livejournal.com profile] this_program. 8D

PROMPTCALL

Apr. 15th, 2008 12:36 am
karanguni: (ED high)
This entry is going to be full of nonsense, because I'm stuck sitting up at my laptop when I should really be asleep, and the only answer for this is fic, and tea, and probably the gouging out of eyeballs tomorrow morning.

Promptcall!



Once again, the friendly vampire of insanity has bitten me on the neck, and it's a free-for-all call for anything to do with Final Fantasy VII, Baccano!, Gundam Wing (mostly the Magnificent Bastard people of Wing, aka the Best Friends make for Better Enemies lot), Good Omens, Ocean's Arithmetic 11 (+1/2) and Final Fantasy XII's (Archadians, please). Go!

To spur you/me on, here, have a completely unrelated and far too cracky drabble that my ocha-fuelled brain has produced!

Hapless SOLDIERs (Third Class) A, B and C discuss SOLDIER, First Class

Why would I be jealous of a man who has incredible amounts of leeway within the Company, apparently no limit to his paycheck, a ridiculously overpowered inventory -- have you seen what Science gives him? -- and almost unwarranted popularity amongst both SOLDIER and the female demographic? )

[Edit:] The comments are where all the replies are going to go. Right now, we've got:

- Final Fantasy VII characters and their hobbies (Rufus, Sephiroth, Angeal, Tseng)
- Final Fantasy VII characters and their shoes (man, I love you guys and your brains) (Elena, Tseng, Zack)
karanguni: (HUGHES junshou)
One more prompt reply - I'm working through the others as they come to me. xD The request post still isn't closed, so go ahead and stick me with a few more.

For [livejournal.com profile] obabscribbler, Tseng and Cissnei post-Turk discovery of Zack's body. 465 words.

East of Eden )

Promptback

Apr. 3rd, 2008 11:56 pm
karanguni: (RUFUS' clothes)
Prompt responses go here; more will be added as I keep typing! May not get to everyone by tonight; am sort of dead in the head. I'm just writing and posting, so if there are any glaringly bad errors in anything, I apologise. xD


Reno, for [livejournal.com profile] ununoriginal. Prompt: you're amazing, i'm attracted, but i'm terribly distracted. 634 words.

It always felt like the first time he wanted to trail along, collared to a leash someone else was holding )

For [livejournal.com profile] logistika_nyx, Tseng and initiation procedures into the Department of Administrative Research. 836 words.

It went on, and never seemed to end. )

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.
