New Years Yet Again [Dec. 31st, 2010|09:34 pm]

Once again I find myself here on the eve of another new year. Unfortunately, I'm freakishly tired at the moment, so I may actually just sleep right through it. Or...I guess I could just set my alarm five minutes before 12:00AM. Yes, this is what I shall do.

In the meantime, here's a dream I had ages ago and apparently jotted down upon awakening (please forgive the poor writing as I am typing this up exactly as my sleep-addled brain wrote it):

I actually have a book of these things that I'd entirely forgotten about. This one just happens to be one of my favorites.

*****EDIT 10:08PM*****

Screw the plan, I'll just pick up where I left off reading Aspho Fields. That book is so addicting, I'll probably stay up way past 12:00PM.

*****EDIT 2:42AM*****

Yep. Happy New Years! *drops*

TAF is now up on FF.net after undergoing one last edit. I have now read those first two installments enough times to recite them. Mrrrr, and I've been watching enough Jeremy Irons recently to imagine it read in his epic voice. *purrs*

Well, I've said I'd do it a hundred times and now I finally have: Death, Thy Name is Volleyball has been renamed. The new title I have chosen is Those Assets Feminine. It was a phrase King Scar used to describe Nala in the Broadway version of the Lion King during the song "The Madness of King Scar". Personally, I dislike the song; it takes far too much of Scar's awesomeness away by using the "Pity me/I only want love/I feel so bad about being evil/I have the hots for the hero's girl" route of villainy. At least its not really canon...but, hey! I liked that phrase! =D

I'm also super proud of myself for having literally just finished the rewrite of Chapter One as well as a previously unwritten prologue which actually explains Bowser's motivation. Hooray for spontaneous creativity! And to think I had planned to go to the store today. Haha, silly me for thinking my Muses were above crashing plans after four years of being AWOL. Ah, well, can't complain!

It's late so I don't entirely trust it to be without its glitches. At least not enough to replace the chapter currently on FF.net with it yet (not that it wouldn't be an improvement, glitches and all). However, I will post it here in case anyone is interested. Feedback would be great, but I won't hold my breath. ^___^

Without further ado (and so I can sleep already), here is the first chapter of Those Assets Feminine:


Read With Me!Collapse )

Some italics may be off, which makes me pout. You know how much I've come to love them! Also, some of you may notice that I've changed a few things. Most notably is the way Ghidorah speaks; it was hard to differentiate when he was only speaking of him and his three heads at first, so I took a page out of Ermac's book and went ahead and gave him the "We" "Us" speech. We can tell when he's talking about the group when "We" and "Us" are not capitalized. Hope that makes sense. It is three in the morning.

Juuuust stepped in dog pee. That bratty dog of mine has apparently forgotten she is house-trained and just let loose right outside my bedroom door. Ugh, it wasn't even a small puddle; it splashed everywhere like a kid had done a cannonball into it. And it sent me skidding to what might have been my death had I not grabbed onto the wall.

Then she watched me clean it. Then she wanted to be picked up. And then she got her feelings hurt when I refused and told her I hated her. She'll probably stay hidden under her blankets for the rest of the day -- or until I start eating something.

Brat.

Oneshot Time! [Jun. 5th, 2010|09:55 pm]

Changed the name of my journal at long last. The old name was rather...I dunno. I guess it just irked me. I made it back when I was in my early teens and it showed. Bad. This one isn't much better, but I always got a giggle out of that line from Patsy Cline's "The Wayward Wind". I'd like to change my actual username to my modern screen name, too, but I don't have $15 to shell out right now. Seems a silly thing to blow money on, anyway.

But that's not the reason for this post! The true reason is that I have a oneshot to share at long last. It starts out of nowhere and it ends out of nowhere, but I had fun. This was one of those many times where I just start writing about two people interacting and see where it goes. I recommend doing this yourself. It eases boredom and can take you through some pretty cool scenarios you might not have consciously considered. You'll see that this one got away from me real fast.

No pairing that I can see. Just Bowser and Peach from the Super Mario games on possibly the first time/one of the first times he's kidnapped her. You'll notice he's not so twitter-pated by her just yet, though he's on his way. Also want to say that I didn't purposely write it so vague, nor did I purposely write Peach so OOC. She just came out that way! Also, I have no idea why they're just sitting in the dark like that. Maybe the power is out and he's keeping an eye on her? Gah, vague fic is vague!

Read With Me!Collapse )

Writing this has taught me something: I have swapped overuse of commas for overuse of italics. They're just so fun!

Bruzer laid two eggs today. That means my iguana is officially a female. I'll elaborate later. Now, if you'll excuse me, I need to go have a panic-attack over this egg business.

EDIT: Final egg count was over 40. W-O-W. Bruzer is exhausted and starving. Now all she needs is a trip to the vet to confirm that all the eggs are out and then we can focus on simply fattening her up again. She hasn't eaten in weeks because of those dern eggs; she weighs like a feather!

EDIT 2: Vet visit went well and all eggs are gone, gone, gone. Will have to seriously consider getting her spayed this February. Her appetite has shot up and I couldn't be happier. Mission Fatty Lizard has begun!

Message in a Bottle Show [Jan. 9th, 2010|02:35 pm]

The lost episode of the Donkey Kong Country TV show (titled as above) is no longer lost. I...I have no words to describe my happiness. I'm a big fan of this cute little program (it is what began my love affair with King K. Rool) and was always dismayed to have never seen the last episode. In fact, no one in the fandom had ever seen it to my knowledge. Now that I have found it - and am currently converting it for my iPod - I can finally say I have every single episode!

...wow, this sounded way less nerdy when I was waking up my younger brother to tell him the good news this morning. I guess I did deserve that boot to the gut after all. Eh, whatever. I'm gonna watch it again!

DTNIV's first chapter is coming along okay, though I'm afraid I may be adding where additions needn't be made. For every one page in the original I now have two pages with this rewrite. Is this a good thing or does it make it a hassle to slog through? Kinda wish I could get some feedback. Blah.

It's currently two in the morning and I just realized I never put soap in the laundry that I've been waiting to finish. This...oh, this angers me. Too bad I only have myself to blame.

Whoooaaa! We're looking at a new decade here, my friends! Ten years ago we thought we were all going to die in a massive techno-massacre -- or something? I don't really remember; I was only eleven. But, now look at us. We made it! Even were my house to suddenly detonate with me inside typing this post, I would still have made it to 2010, baby!

I have high hopes for this year to be a year of productivity. I'll be working hard to rewrite DTNIV, pump out new one-shots, and hopefully new stories, as well. I have ideas, friends! Many lovely ideas that I can't get my hands to recreate into something tangible. I -- hmmm. Tangible. Are words on the internet really tangible? Can they even be considered to exist? What exactly is existence?

...blah, this is too heavy for January 1st. I'm going to go eat some more tamales and turn my brain off for a while. I love you all and hope everyone has a safe and fantastic new year.

Currently rewriting this old thing. It's hard, let me tell you. I wish I had the skill to just start all over again, but a part of me is attached to my original (and dreadful) writings and is resisting change. But, change it must! I think it may be what is keeping me from continuing with the story, which is something I really want to do.

Sigh, don't mind me. I just need to fuss.
