tfw you wonder where your order of supplies* has gone, only to search your email and realise you failed to click the confirm order button and therefore never placed it at all... 1 month ago.

* not that kind of exciting supplies, kids.

Only I would be able to live under the illusion that today is the 8th of June and not the 7th, thereby missing the [profile] remixredux9 signup deadline completely. Oh, brains, you do me such good turns. 8D Snap for busy days!

to-do before work after work at work:

[x] Pick up mathematics/aesthetics and give them a read through
[] Japanese notes/homework
[x] Get cheques done
[x] Email collaborator
[] pick up Lucifer


[edit] It took way too much time for me to open that combination safe. Way too much time.

[edit] I have work, and what do I do instead? I fix my CSS so that [livejournal.com profile] karanguni is more readable, I write posts about the Iliad in allcaps, and general Fail At Life(TM).

My connection is being crazy, so I apologise to the people whom I was talking with - I JUST GIVE UP, nothing is co-operating!

Lots of things are churning in the ficbin, but nothing's ready to be shown to the big bad world yet. \o A couple of teasers/random thoughts:

Final Fantasy VII: Restorations III

Every time I embark upon a multiparter, my first thought is you are such a lazy bastard and then the next is oh my god what have you got yourself into now? It's kind of freaky that Restorations, in spite of being slow and short and snail-like, has evolved into a new category of STOP OH GOD WHAT ARE YOU DOING. Next up: reverse-colonialisation, Reeve being a better politician than the whole world combined, Rufus getting his ass summarily handed to him by the irony gods, Tseng v. Past v. Present, and Wutai Existing For Us To Make Stuff Up About It.

Batfic: pauper!AU

  1. Dick and Bruce argue for great profit
  2. Why does this sound like every other Batfic in the universe?
  3. Oh, and Harvey Dent.

Gundam Wing

Zechs/Treize, because I NEED TO WRITE THIS SO BAD. I've this bad feeling that I'm going to need 8 hours in front of my episodes with a notepad and a few flowcharts before I get to writing it with any measure of confidence, though. But the nature of prediction! The ETERNITY OF FRIENDSHIP. Treize's blatant inability to keep his hands to himself! Zechs versus magnanimity versus monogamy! \o/!!

Antique Bakery

I am so stalled on this one, but Tachibana needs to go get (way)laid, courtesy of [livejournal.com profile] voksen and the good nation of Korea.


This needs a pimp post all on its own. Suffice to say: vampires (in a good way), no clear seme/uke relationship, no clear BL, NANAO CHRONO, mindfuckery on a level that I only wish I could emulate, and lots and lots and lots and lots of fun.

Here, go read scans, or head to [livejournal.com profile] ivory_and_horn's IJ pimp post.

Series I've finished ploughing my way through sans mercy or humility watching:

x Peacemaker Kurogane (uh, what)
x Kuroshitsuji (I like Sebastian's clothes better than I like the plot)

Any recs, guys? :D? Anything? Good historical stuff would totally rock my boat.

Also, I am pimping out this course that [livejournal.com profile] shadowwaker is doing. Please do head to this post if you want to sign up! I'll leave the objectives under a cut, but there are loads more details on that post than there are here, so please do go check it out. ♥

Anyone up for Creative Writing-ness? )

Stumbling home this evening, sort of half-blind with tired, I thought to myself: I need a hot bath. Decision made, I sat down with my laptop to unwind, waiting patiently for my water heater to get to work. I read a couple of emails before I realised that my eyes were canvassing words but not meaning. D, Nyx, Pere - I'll get back to you guys when I'm not pulling acts of genius such as waiting half an hour for a water heater I did not switch on.

Exhaustion, your name is fail.
karanguni: (uh HAWKEYE)
Every once in a while, I decide to inflict upon myself the non-duty of doing something with my non-skill in non-art. I suck at it, and yet I do it. :D I blame the genius of people like [livejournal.com profile] dnatio_memoriae and [livejournal.com profile] pere_chan, who both make me feel like picking up the stylus and TORMENTING YOU PEOPLE TO RETINAL DEATH. Oh, an [livejournal.com profile] regicialdwarf, whose dance playlist kept me sane. Ish. Sanish.

Full version, in case you dare to go where angels blah blah blah )
karanguni: (COOPER couch)
[x] Upload Lucifer
[] Write the final part of Between the Devil And-, so that [livejournal.com profile] rahmbamarama doesn't eat me in my sleep
[x] Design mockups for [livejournal.com profile] white_jenna
[] Design mockups for personal purposes
[x] Read more [livejournal.com profile] yuletide
[x] Catch up on the flist, since I've been a horrible and bad and preoccupied K.

Mmm, life

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: (uh HAWKEYE)
Considering that I will be shoving the remainder of my philosophy syllabus down my own throat tomorrow in addition to the, um, Ambitious Fic Plan.

So, the to-do list for the new morning:

- Lots of studying
- Triple Bill consisting of

a) writing three fics
b) posting three fics
c) straddling three fandoms.

Mmm, I love how ideas come at the worst of times, and during examination season, to boot.

Triple Bill #1: Batman

Will hopefully break the four thousand word barrier and not leave me dead; continuation of the current arc, with huge smack-in-face guest appearances and a lot of Terry being Terry being Terry.

Triple Bill #2: Final Fantasy VII

Because just when you think you can't write for it without inspiration, inspiration hits: more Tseng fic, this time with creepy scientists and a lot of Creepy Tseng. Kind of. Sort of.

Triple Bill #3: Baccano!

Sending myself right back to hell with this one; playing with Claire and... stuff.

Feel free to scream at me a lot tell me which one ought to come first; mostly I just want to do something during my break hours that don't involve plucking my eyeballs out and/or major depression.

I wish I were not a student; then I could write fic all day and also earn some income, if only to augment my stupid and petty desire to buy more icon space.

I am shallow, like a frozen-over Pacific Ocean.

[edit] And then, sneakily browsing the flist, I discover pointless feel-good memes, which are good for everyone who chooses to play! \o\ I'll do you if you do me mmm mindless punning at one in the morning.

I took a nap this afternooon.

Now it is 11 pm.

karanguni: (RENO turns)
Paranoid parents give me hives, so I'm hiding out in my toilet and writing fic before I leave. :D I love the power of wireless internet.

Looks like I won't/don't have time to write out a full Reno/Tseng/Rufus story (yet), so I'm contenting myself with mashing out a few hundred unconnected words and hoping that inspiration will hit me for this (and the thousand other things I owe various challenges) when I get back home.

Hello, major Crisis Core, Before Crisis and Last Order spoilers, nice to meet you and your canon-based friends. )

Mmm, that totally sucked. 8D Hopefully something less pathetic and drabble-like will come when I get back from abroad. Until then, I'll be gone from now till around the 6th of June. Bye bye!

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.
