Out of nowhere, Saific! My fingers also now hurt, and I can barely close my eyes for caffeination.

Doing It ANBU

Fandom: Naruto
Rating: PG
Characters: Sai, Kakashi; Yamato, Sasuke, cast
Warning: AU futurefic.
Summary: Rehabilitating Sasuke was supposed to be easier than fighting a war.

7974 words and, mm, but canon is delicious for breakfast.

Three months, sixteen missions, and an uncountable number of attempts on his sanity after taking on ANBU captaincy, Sai was beginning to understand where Yamato-taicho's creepy eyes originated from: let Kakashi-senpai take you at unawares too often and, eventually, your face began to stick that way. )

Part 2/?

Fandom: Naruto
Rating: PG-13
Characters: Kakashi; Minato and cast.
Warnings: Set during the Third Shinobi World War.
Summary: This is about how Kakashi handles.

1768 words of genny-gen-gen.

Part 1

Kakashi could pinpoint the day the war ended, because that day he remembered how to be hungry. )

\o\ things for today:

  • Got a new microphone set = no more skype fail!
  • Boss did not say "start from blank" re: draft 3! Boss also showing human side!
  • Parents possibly taking us out for dinner!

/o\ things for today:

  • Almost died buying new mic!
  • Boss still wants edits! \o More rhetorically-driven education coming up at 9pm tonight!
  • Sleeping at 7am and waking at 12pm = not good!

"Augh DO THIS NOW" things for today:

  • [x] CSS fixes for friend
  • [x] Pauper AU
  • [x] Left Hand fic
  • [] Potentially traumatising tentacle fic for the sake of Motivation and Crack Relief
  • [x] Methos (Dude, dude, Peter Wingfield is born on my birthday (um, day, not year) and shares my strange watch wearing habits! This makes me ridiculously excited! For happy, mindless, fangirly reasons! SPRINGTIME OF MY YOUTH.)


  • [] Layout draft to [ profile] sister_coyote
  • [] Layout draft to [ profile] mjules

Time to chug the caffeine.

Though maybe only after some sleep.

WORK. Think of the largest, toothiest, most evil monster that you can, then add warts and pimples and exploding sacs of pus and then multiply it by a factor of fifteen, and maybe you might approximate the hell that is WORK. 'nuff said.

LEGS. They ache, from not being able to run (weather) and walking too much (work) and sitting down too much (work) and walking the same damned area (work). LEGS.

TIRED. The feeling that one gets when one wants to write fic (so much fic) and yet cannot keep one's eyes open long enough to do so. TIRED.

TASTY. Hazelnut coffee. TASTY.

BEAUTIFUL. The Tseng sketch that appeared in my room. Insanely BEAUTIFUL.

BED. The place I long to be. BED.

FULL OF NOTHING. My Valentinr - karanguni -- the bizarre meme for Valentine's that's going around, is. I'll do yours if you do mine, wink wink nudge nudge. February is the SEASON FOR LOVE, because the holiday makes me want to alternately laugh and beat things up. The cards that are going on sale are *__________* FULL OF NOTHING.

BRAINS. Something that I do not have. BRAINS.

POST OFFICES. Something that I wish we had more of. POST OFFICES.

MONEY. Something I wish I had an unlimited supply of. MONEY.

DEATH. What beckons. DEATH.


OUTRAGEOUS. The sudden urge to rewind 24802984 years of my life, since the unbearable urge to write Tezuka/Fuji PRINCE OF TENNIS fic has suddenly exploded in my mind. OUTRAGEOUS.

DAUNTING. The prospect of finishing my last-ish [ profile] rahmbamarama fic. It feels bigger than my head is right now. DAUNTING.

DIARRHOEA. What I have, verbally, at this point in my Sliding Scale of Squinty Fail. DIARRHOEA.
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.

[ 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: (BONTEN is sleepy)
Slept at 550am. Failed to get up at 8am to send off people who were staying over. Bad K. Now is 1030am. Brilliant day outside, by the looks of it - golden light, lack of climate control, v. little reason to roll out of bed. Grabbing a few hours more sleep before:

[x] reaccumulating and recalculating New Finances (TM)
[x] emailing people I need to email with things that are emails/phone calls
[x] visiting the post office to yibber things off to people
[x] getting new stationery
[x] giving flist its Presents
[] sleeping early and not dying tomorrow

Excitedface here; Tsengfic will be forthcoming over the next few days - I can't believe I haven't written since November, what - and and and stuff. EXCITING, NON DRUNK ON LACK OF SLEEP KINDA STUFF.

*sad* Though, with half the family gone and those guests no longer around and the BF too busy for anything and all the RL people as obsessed with work and getting things right as I am, it's... pretty lonely down here, post-celebrations.
karanguni: (TSENG smiles)
I have the most brilliant idea/shadow of an idea/glint of a shadow of an idea for a Tseng fic, something that really has the potential to be exciting and Empery-worthy aaaaand I'm too tired to even contemplate writing it.

karanguni: (rahm EMANUEL)
I come home and I'm exhausted after a day of eating too much food and walking too much and talking too much to friends I haven't seen in too long and I'm about to pass out from doing too much and then I find peace(ish) in the Middle East and electronic tripping (of the short circuiting variety) and the flist writing RPS and prompts in my inbox and what the hell, I am amazed by the universe, the universe is an amazing place.


Internets. What would I be without you? Oh, flist, my flist.
karanguni: (HOUSE kills)
Okay, right, so I wake up this morning after popping a couple of tabs of paracetamol last night, and mostly I just feel like I've been rolled over by a violently angry trucker. Repeatedly. I have to get on a plane in roughly one and a half days, so that's not looking too shiny. *rolls*

That said, might as well make someone else's day! :D [ profile] paceus asked for a DVD commentary for Ho ho ho (Discworld). Here it is:

Things I do when low on sleep )

\o/ I am a pretty pathetic commentary writer for drabbles. *g* If anyone else wants one - for any fic, really - feel free to poke at!

Alternatively, if you feel like making a sick girl's day:
the fanficcers love meme, continued

[edit] While I'm in the meta mood, might as well do the 2008-fic-roundup thing that everyone else and their mother has probably done. 8D

The year in a couple of words )

(this goes out from under the cut, because people need the love:)

Things I love - again and again and again I have struck gold with the people I've met. It's insane - everyone seems to talk about fandom wank and such, but I've never encountered anything other than squee and constructive crit.

[ profile] pere_chan: my most amazing Pere! I do not know if you are home to read this right now, but thank you so damned much. You went from being one of the first people that I felt comfortable squeeing with on AIM to being one of my closest friends outright. ♥ Your Batman art blows my mind away - your art in general blows my mind away - but not more than your generosity of spirit and optimisim.

[ profile] dnatio_memoriae: I am so glad you came out of the woodwork! Thank you so much for the last couple of months; it has been one hell of a ride. *g* You're always around with something to say about Turkfic, for which I am ETERNALLY GRATEFUL IN ALLCAPS, and I love love love the concrit you gave for Restorations. I love you art so much that I have this entire folder with nothing but your pieces. I look at it and it brings a warm glow to my stomach. TOGETHER WE WILL MUSH LUCIFER AND FINAL FANTASY VII AND BLIND THE WORLD. *g* *rolls*

[ profile] logistika_nyx: you are the master, and I, merely the little slavegirl thing. *g* You have constantly been around to flail at and with, and to have endless comment threads when one/both of us are bored at school/work, and god knows you've made me a better, more thinky writer than I would've been otherwise. I hope you and the Boy are home and settled into House! :D I am blessed to have got to know you. And, you know, write copious amounts of (mind)porn with you.

[ profile] kabuki_chan: I hope that you are alive! And that the world has not eaten you! ♥ Thank you so much for the co-squee and the amazing art over the past year. You are the bestest!

[ profile] _ice_lady_: LET YOUR THESIS NOT EAT YOU, PLEASE. ♥ Thank you for being around and always having time to comment spam and grin and glee. ♥

[ profile] maho_kiwi: kiwi! I am so glad to have got to know you and Laylah - the both of you are such landmarks of fandomy goodness, and the both of you work so hard that I feel kind of star-fishy and useless in comparison. You guys have been amazing generous with your time and yourselves, so ♥ ♥ ♥!

My nose is starting to clog up and object to a lack of medicine, and I'm running out of the braincells needed to do a proper thank-you list, but nonetheless:

[ profile] white_jenna, [ profile] puella_nerdii, [ profile] aikonamika, [ profile] guingel, [ profile] mithrigil, [ profile] shadowwaker -- and everyone else that my brain's not remembering: thank you so much for the past year. ♥

To all the new flisters, especially the Yuletides [ profile] mjules, [ profile] numinicious, [ profile] elishabet, [ profile] liviapenn, [ profile] dhaunea, [ profile] kangeiko, [ profile] deepad, [ profile] autumn_belias, okay here I really *am* running out of braincells - I love you guys for #yulechat, and I lookforward to, and the next yuletide, and all the OTHER CRAZY. Oh, and five million NYRs. ♥
karanguni: (YULETIDE snowflake -)
kv: capitalisation will happen, but not in this post and not today. oh, yeah, merry christmas, and stuff.

what feels like five billion hours later: 8 yuletides! 50000 chat! quote-of-the-day:

Madness means never having to say you're sorry for the duck pricking. (mikeneko) Fade to quack.

okay going off to die in bed so that i can sleep through sermon-that-i-don't-want-to-go-for. happy times, everyone, and may your presents be material!
karanguni: (RAHM chibi)

You know that song by Madonna? Four minutes? To save the world? I FEEL LIKE THAT RIGHT NOW.


[] Ten minute nap so that you don't pass out
[] Print out reading for class
[] Print out photographs and write notes for tutors
[] Pack your tights/scarves/gloves/oddities so that you don't fuckin' FREEZE TO DEATH
[] Register for LNAT, you silly bitch
[] Vassar/NYU/Brown supplement essays. FOR GOD'S SAKE JUST WRITE THEM. WRITE THEM. WRITE THEM.

HI BY THE WAY IF YOU HAVEN'T ALREADY GIVEN ME YOUR ADDRESS FOR A CHRISTMAS CARD, give to it me, give it to me, give it to me. I'll be writing them on the airport, in the cab, on the plane, in transit, ANYPLACE THAT ISN'T MY HOME COUNTRY, and I have to pack sufficient cards into my luggage next to the PARTS OF MYSELF WHICH WILL HAVE FALLEN OFF BY TOMORROW NIGHT. ♥

ALSO, [ profile] pere_chan, I am so sorry that I haven't replied to your email yet, I WILL AT AROUND 2 AM OR SOMETHING AJLSKFJSLKAFJLKSAJF

karanguni: (RAHM chibi)
Caveat lector: this post is not going to contain much - if any - punctuation. GO.

Jesus christ I leave the flist for one day and it explodes all over the place; I'm looking and blaming [ profile] rahmbamarama for this, but also, HAPPY THANKSGIVING to everyone in the right part of the North American continent who celebrates it; I hope you guys have had a lot of tasty turkey with gravy and potatoes and squash STOP.

Currently on my four hour home-break between one thing and another; running off to another night-somewhere-else; I think I've got a serious email addiction problem; it's like I can't stop checking the damn thing on my phone. In spite of relatively connected connectivity, LJ has been kind of finnicky, so if I miss any of your stuff, I might not be able to catch up and/or reply to comments and/or produce fic until a few days later, or mid-December for safety-netting. I'm not even sure if I have time to breathe right now. I ought to check my schedule on that.

Anyway I am here hoping in extremely fast-paced insane typings that everyone has had a goodish weekend and/or Monday and/or Tuesday; I send lots of love and apologies that I really can't reply to the ♥ comments below because if I did all I'd be doing is sending ♥ at people.

I cannot believe I'm flying off to Canada in only a few days; I think I'm either going to freeze to death or die of exhaustion. This is the best damned thing in the universe.

Also, going broke is not as fun as it seems, but hey, INTO MY POCKETS I WILL DIG for the holidays.

Alsowik, it Sucks Big Time that I can't buy the red Stephen Colbert wrist-band thinger, not for lack of credit but the fact that the damned thing only ships within the United States. Anyone want to help a body out?

Okay right now for a bath and then arrangements, GO K GO K GO

post script mental note to self operating on less than four hours of sleep and caffeine alone = bad idea on the best of days
karanguni: (BONTEN is sleepy)
Quick update before I meet the land of zzzz:

1. Interview = love = yay = I wish it mattered more
2. Exams = woe = study session tomorrow = death
3. Christmas = upcoming = me = broke
4. Money = root of evil = still a necessity = need work
5. Work = not forthcoming till February = grrrr
6. Rain = everyday = soggy K
7. Friends = I love you = sorry for absentee-ism outside of insane punditfic
8. Promise = to appear more soon = hopefully will not be broken
karanguni: (RENO turns)
For your random fic-reading needs: some stuff on Rufus and Tseng, built for the stockmarket AU but essentially applicable to anything. Remove "New York" and replace with "Midgar", remove "Chicago" and replace with "Junon", and viola.

Collapsing into bed now.
karanguni: (RUFUS' clothes)
To a kind of basic horror, this morning I woke up and realised that I haven't written for the Lead arc for almost a month. I mean. Holy shit where did October go? Major examinations and fic thousand writing obligations crashing at the same time. Mmm, K. You have no sense of timing, at all.


Quick question: anyone interested in shelling out a few bucks for Smallville DVD boxsets? I've got the first three seasons in Region 3 format; I love them well, but they're taking up space and really need to go. Willing to ship them away cheap if anyone's willing to house them!

Todo list for today:

(x) Coffee. Tea. God, just any kind of caffeine.
() Application
() Math I
() Finish up one of the notebooks
() Plot Lead
(x) Run
(x) Not die

Here, have a song so that this post is not totally useless: Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds - Stay or Leave. Not something you want to listen to if you've broken up recently, unless you've broken up recently and want to wallow.

oh she's

not dead yet, stop.

middle of examination hell, stop.

how is everyone, question mark, stop?

oh god, and after this we have LLNM writing to do, stop.

yes we do, precious, stop.

mmmm, batman, stop.

guh, need more icon space for snarky house icons, stop.

update over, stop.


nevermind, stop. things about dick and bruce are more important:

infinite crisis = worlds colliding = multiple everyone

superman #2 = wants to destroy our world because our world is imperfect

bruce's argument against destruction = dick

later, while fighting to keep the world alive, dick and bruce bond.

i do love comics that make my sad, sorry little paper-pushing life better. \o\
karanguni: (GANDOR family)
Hi! I know there've been a couple of new additions to the flist lately - first off, a huge hello hello to everyone! \o\

Also, to cut down on spam to everyone else, I'm thinking of putting together a Batman beta-filter, because I have five thousand weirdo ideas that I don't think everyone wants to end up seeing for this fandom. 8D If you guys think this is a good idea, lemme know - mi casa su casa, and if Batman squee posts are spammy, I'd like to clean up for everyone. 8D

ajsfkljlas okay, now I should be getting to bed so that I can get up and study my ass off tomorrow and finish off the Triple Bill. /o/ If I am lucky, I'll be alive enough to actually take my damned exams.

And because it wouldn't be right to go to sleep too soon: opening up the comments for flashdrabble requests! Just drop me a prompt or a character or an idea or a bomb, and I'll smash out a few lines for you before I get round to my zzzzz-ing.

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.
