It's that time of the year again! [community profile] snowflake_challenge time, that is. Hello to anyone who's randomly drifting by.

If you want to read about: translations, Japanese language stuff, intertextual rubbish - clicky! I talk less about my fics (of which I've picked 2) and more about the background behind their canons and how they're consumed: rakugo stories and the Tale of Heike.

Day 1: In your own space, post a rec for at least three fanworks that you have created )
karanguni: publicly thinks "?"  (good sir EAMES)
This fic took my soul, beat it up, and when I wasn't looking, took it and beat it up some more, and then kicked it in the face. I am happy to let it out into the wilds; I want to set it free so that it will let go of my heart and the claws it has sank into it. I thank [profile] charlie_d_blue for hearing my confessions. Without you, Ambiguous Backstory Is Nothing.

So yeah, my GQMF. This is Inception/Ocean's 11, Slash If You Squint, Image-Heavy, Over 4000, OMFG, BBQ. ABCD. E. F. Maybe even a G. MY HANDS. WILL THEY EVER STOP SHAKING.

There are many things I will apologise for in the morning when I have my brains, including but not limited to: managling US phone numbers, mangling Chinese, mangling Photoshop, mangling architecture, mangling Japanese, mangling your eyesight. 以上です。

I Don't Think You Think I Think About Probability

Fandom: Inception, Ocean's 11
Rating: PG-13
Characters: Every effing one. Eames, Ariadne, Saito, Cobb, Arthur, Cast. Danny, Rusty, Cast.
Warnings: Slash if you squint. In all directions.
Summary: Saito, on a vacation with thieves and thieves.

4822 words and more everything than I can ever enumerate, ever.

'Rusty Ryan,' Eames pronounced, rolling the Rs. 'And the little bastard's stolen my food.' )

[edit] Because [personal profile] charlieblue is actually a magical unicorn of awesome, Without You, Ambiguous Backstory Is Nothing actually exists and if you don't go and read it immediately there is something terribly wrong with you.
karanguni: (HONOUR and glory)
I know I just did one for Bat!pauper fic, but I realise that there are, woah, a lot more people here (hi!!!!) than there were when I first did a call of being on a general beta-filter. I just posted some Final Fantasy VII stuff for the Restorations Arc under beta, so if you want on that list to read it, please do comment below! :D Please be not shy - it's not a beta filter where you actually have to say anything, it's just that I occasionally post something with questions like "SHOULD I BURN THIS OVER AN OPEN FIRE?" Lurkers are totally welcome. *waves*

The beta-filter gets stuff from more or less everything that I'm doing - unprocessed and unedited and generally MESSY LIKE A CAKE AT A 3 YEAR-OLD'S PARTY - but if you DARE GO FORTH... 8D

Similarly, if you want to be taken off the beta-filter, just tell me. No hard feelings! ♥

Pssst, as a pimpin' sidenote: I'm up for fic & graphics bidding at the Sweet Charity Auction! Just search for me under "karanguni"! Lots of other cool people are on auction as well: here I do pimp [livejournal.com profile] deejay's chai basket, [livejournal.com profile] lferion and [livejournal.com profile] scheherezhad's jewellery, [livejournal.com profile] everysecondtues's fic and [livejournal.com profile] attempt_unique's graphics. :D :D Have I missed anyone?
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. ♥

:D? Help?

karanguni: (DICK swings weird)
My penultimate exam is over, and my last one is almost a full fortnight away, and right now I am almost a free human being!

My first act as a free human being out of the silly compulsory education system? Raise funds. D: I wish I had space to get a job in between travelling, but it's a no-go on proper work until after January for me. But until that time - I pledged my younger cousins my old laptop, but the thing's really falling apart. I've got my own personal attachment to it, too, which really isn't helping -- but I really do want to get them a laptop.

So I'm damn well going to get them a laptop. I'm looking to whore myself out work to raise a small neat Singaporean-dollar sum by March next year, and was wondering if anybody would be interested in buying my ass cheap chipping in to my psychotic efforts? I do LJ layouts for both paid and basic accounts (my design journal being the sadly-neglected [livejournal.com profile] shifgrethor), and also small personal websites.

And if nobody needs webdesign stuff, I'm also looking to clear inventory for the sake of Ze Small Kids. I will ship to anywhere on earth for tiny fees. Really tiny fees. It's for a good cause! Help me make my baby cousins smile? :D?

Inventory clearing time! )

Please do pimp this post out if you think anyone you know would be interested! :D ♥
karanguni: (BATMAN and NIGHTWING)
Finally took a day or so to do nothing but indulge myself - between coming fast and hard off the exams and straight into soul-eating fic, I decided not to write another few chapters and just to laze around and be human for a little while. Still feeling kind of twitchy; my body wants me to do stuff, even though my mind is telling me firmly to back off.

She has a life, does she? )

Here, have a few guilty pleasure listening songs:

Miley Cyrus - See You Again

This song is so hilariously teeny-bopper, but also hilariously catching, if you ignore Miley Cyrus' self-insert into the lyrics. It's my private Stephanie!song, for the Batfans on the flist. Somehow it sparks a little of young!AU!Elena, for the FFVII people. God, pop.

The last time I freaked out
I just kept looking down
St-st-st-stuttered when you asked me what I'm thinking 'bout

Smashing Pumpkins - The End is the Beginning is the End

For the Batfans: Yoinked right off the Batman and Robin soundtrack, this track makes me think of Jason Todd, Dick gone wrong and Timothy logically extended. It's a frightening Gotham. For the VII fans: dude, this is like. Midgar slums +++++ I write angry Tseng and think of this fondly.

Is it bright where you are?
Have the people changed?
Does it make you happy; you're so strange.

[edit] Bugger. Pornbattle on IJ just decided to buttonsmash me. Potentials:

Batman Beyond, Bruce/Terry, family
Batman Beyond, Bruce/Terry, time-travel

DC Comics, Bruce Wayne/Dick Grayson, ward

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.
