I wrote a fic. It is Kingdom/Tron AU, starring Peter as The User.  Everything else will be a surprise.

If you don't know anything about Tron Legacy or what the world looks like, this is a decent start.  I wrote the story nearly exclusively to the movie soundtrack, which you can browse here.   I consider 'Fragile' to be the companion song to this story.

I actually started this fic nearly 11 months ago, on the night that Tron:Legacy released.  We got back from the theater at 3 AM, and I busted out the bones of this story.  It's taken me a long time to really flesh it out, mostly cause of massive distraction.  But I'm really happy to have it done.  I actually have thought about Tron AU a fair bit, and have a storyline for it mapped out in my head.  But we'll see if I ever get to other stories of it XD 

(This story is subtitled "How many bad computing puns can Sage make in one fic?")

It was seeing Angie crank out two Father's Day themed stories that really made me bust my ass on this one.  I've been fiddling with this story for about a month now and just need to get it out of my system. 

Who: Deon, Mara, Rebecka, Samantha.
What: Biometrics/Future AU.   Adjusting to being brand-new parents, finding the resolve to do the last thing they set out to accomplish.
Where: Reed's Louisiana home.
When: About four months after the raid to save Lynn.  About nine months after a particular accident.
Why: For a Mother's Day/Father's Day combo fic, and also for the Schmoop tile Kidfic - Bedtime.  Also by the song Rumblefish by Bonnie Pink.

Guys.  I fucking love writing about babies.  I try not to do it a lot, or ya'll would get so sick of me.

I went to a resume seminar just now and it BLEW MY MIND.  Funny how you think you have something figured out, and then someone goes ahead and gives you a smackdown of information that sings to you.   I'm actually pretty excited right now.   (LIKE I DIDN'T REALIZE PEOPLE WERE PUTTING LINKEDIN PROFILES IN WITH THEIR CONTACT INFO.  THAT IS BRILLIANT.)   I also got un-scared from making a Summary for myself, since I didn't feel focused enough before to make one, and I learned a much better way to format my qualifications and experience - by a system of PSR - stating the problem you faced, the solution you found, and the results that came from it.  I might have to get creative on results because a lot of my accomplishments at Macy's fell into a black hole but it was a great, active approach.  I found a better format for my resume too, since the chronological format really doesn't work when you are changing fields or short on experience. 

So tonight I'll be creating a Master Resume full of everything I've ever done ever, and split it into two resumes - one for copywriting/proofing and one for HR.  I'm still struggling with HR cause I don't know how to get my foot in the door, especially without a certification.  But I'm going to get that HR resume checked-over by a (DIFFERENT) counselor and at least put in for temping.  

Thanks to Kol I have two wonderful pictures for my profile there too, and the one I don't use on LinkedIn I'll probably throw on Facebook.

Also a Kingdom question:  I've been making Kingdom avatars for my Rock Band game whenever I get the time, and I have Deon, Mara, Raquel, Dusty (a really horrible looking Dusty cause none of the skin or hair colors looks right), Val, Rae, Marcus, and Nate (because I might make Love Assault as an alt band).   If I made one of your Kingdom characters for this game, which one would you want me to go with?  What kind of clothing would they wear to a rock concert?  What instrument would they prefer - vocals, keyboard, guitar, bass, or drums? 

It is actually really adorable watching Val go crazy over the drumset.  Dusty and Raquel are my current vocalists, which gets really funny when we are playing a twee poppy song.

TAKING REQUESTS FOR VALENTINE'S DAY DRABBLES YEAAAAAAAAAAAAH

Give me an OTP and a detailed prompt, and I will give you a 100-300 word fic in response!   I have been particularly itching to do crack fic lately - like, off-the-wall non-canon ships (like Samuel and Jay making out in the elevator).  Or canon ships in really cracky AUs (Devo and Galen in Pokemon AU).  OR PLAIN STUFF IF YOU WANNA BE VANILLA.   I want to smash through them tomorrow (day off FINALLY), but I will have them done by the end of the week.   Put multiple requests if you want, and I'll pick my favorite.

I also have my schmoop bingo board to get through, so you can use that as reference!  It's here.

Gearing back into action, posting like a beast soon!

MWAHAHA

MWA HA HA HA HA 

Pixie I did it :D  I wrote Dusty-being-broken fic for Gryle's Everyone Is A Sad Panda Future AU. 

It kind of has more to do with Deon, but that's not really his fault.  I couldn't imagine Dusty taking an active role in a story like this, or taking an active role in ANYTHING after what happened to him.   I HOPE HIS MISERY PLEASES YOU.

day 15: character you have the most in common with


Valentino.  Moreso than any of my other characters, a lot of his deeper motivations mirror what I would do in his situation (which is still not a perfect mirror, but it is the closest).  He also sort of reflects what I think about my own teenage years - that I was a flaily insecure mess (and still by-and-large am), and that I believed my life and future was going to be over at any second, with any single bad choice.  He is afraid of people hating him and he is initially eager to morph himself around to suit others needs, though as he gets older he gets a more stable sense of self-identity.  He also often is torn between the comfort of stability and the yearning to try out something risky and new - there is no way he will be able to stay in Sunset City forever, but he would want his friends to know that his roots are there, and that he'll never leave them behind forever, no matter how far around the world he goes.


Important:  Everyone give birthday hugs to K :D :D :D

I've been fighting forever to get this fic finished, and I think it is close to the best it will be.  Still a little rough, probably needs another clean up in the morning.  I just had to finish it though, to get some small sense of accomplishment that would lift my mood somewhat tonight.

This is a sequel to She's Going Out, the very merry unbirthday fic Kol did for me back in April.  This is a sort of Long December AU, in which Mara ran off to kill stuff and Deon was forced to stay behind, instead of vice-versa.  Kol and I imagined two possible endings to the fic she wrote, and this is one of them.  Believe it or not, this is the happy ending. 

Snow Patrol got me through the last push to finishing this fic.  I love this damn song. 
 

please let me hold you til i know we are both through this )

 

So relieved to have this one done.

HOLY CRAP I FINISHED A FIC  *FLAIL*

First full week of work this week.  I'm dedicating myself to not killing myself over this job like I did the last one, which means actually taking my breaks and walking a bit slower in the stock room and hydrating myself waaaaaaaay more often.  
impersona: (Default)
I got so much stupid excitement out of writing this story.  Consider it the spiritual predecessor to the Val Baby!Herd story, cause obviously he encounters a good many more adorable kittens before he is able to handle children so well.

PS, people got to hit me if I mess up their characters!  I think Brian is alright, but don't be afraid to tell me otherwise  XD 

Series: Kingdom
Characters:  Val, Brian, Loni, mentioned Dusty and Tasha, KITTEN!HERD


She got a buttermilk smile and a thorny touch )

AND NOW MORE MEME-NESS:
Days 10 and 11 )
impersona: (Fakir writing)
HERE IS YET ANOTHER STORY IN WHICH MARA MUST ENTERTAIN A DRUNK.  PROBABLY MORE DISTURBING THAN ANGIE'S STORY.  Also, spy the homage to a different drinking story!

Had the same old problem where I wrote the dialogue first, and had trouble filling in the in-betweens later.  I really need to figure out a way to work around this.

MOD SQUAD FAIL.

Series:  Kingdom (sometime in October)
Characters: Val, Loni, Prince Eric Brian


This is just a secret that happens to involve you )



Official last day of work is now March 27th.   Woo.   Otherwise in a bum mood, will find a way to fix it.
impersona: (Ichigo snow)
Prompt: Kingdom 100; #53, Riptide
Characters: Deon, Eva Barros (his mom)
Time: Set in 1990, then in mid-October 2008.   
Words: 1000

Already posted on the Kingdom forums, but I wanted to put it here for posterity.   Wrote it in a short, early morning burst on 25+ hours without sleep.    Somehow these quick and dirty fics end up being my best ones.  I really deeply like how this story turned out, so much that I was actually apprehensive about even posting it XD

MAKING THIS TOOK ROUGHLY A HALF-ZILLION REPLAYS OF THE NUTCRACKER BUT HERE IT IS.  There's more I'd like to do with it, especially since I find it incredibly bare on description (which tends to happen when I COMPLETE ALL OF THE DIALOGUE FIRST), but whatev.

Series: Kingdom (Regency AU.  Because I already hit two of the other AUs so why the hell not)
Characters: Abagail, Deon, rest of the family
A/N:  Just a quick run-through of the situation here, because this fic is even more wildly out of context than the others.  Deon's family in the Regency AU is actually a servant family in the service of the old, insane Lord Barrett, though in practice they were treated as slaves.  When the Lord died, the servant family kept his death a secret.  They fear losing the only home they've ever had, so Deon decides to masquerade as one of the Lord's sons, and secure marriage to a noble woman to help establish legitimacy and keep the estate.   Also, the siblings by order of age are Abagail, Grace, Deon, Sara, Teresa.

 there is no use in right or wrong )



guuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuh fallen so far behind on EVERYTHING thanks to work killing the tar out of me.  Going to try to get one or two little fics for the other prompts done tonight if I can :< 

impersona: (Fakir writing)
Both of these are bad and unedited and somewhat jumbled and I will say freely so, but I've been so run-over by retail work lately that my brain cannot properly get into things.  It's only out of a sense of completion that I post them, to prove that I've been trying.  These two are from Wednesday and Thursday's prompts, and Friday's ("a long farewell and a time to choose") is a bye because it's being RPed out instead :D 

Series: Chaos Crisis
Characters: Tuxedo Kamen, thugs, fangirls?

another day in black and red )



Series: Kingdom
Characters: Val, Alex, Brian's kitten army


something pure and out of my hands )



impersona: (Carly two)
I'm really going to miss these 3-12 PM shifts, I think.  It's so wonderful to flop around in bed all morning and early afternoon, napping with kittens and eating crap.  The shifts only really suck because I keep on getting scheduled for 9 AM the next morning T_T

Series: Kingdom (Mexico!AU)
Chars: Deon, Mara

don't tell me if I'm dying cause I don't want to know )


Also, thank you to everyone who has been leaving comments for the month so far <3 <3 <3   I know I don't comment back on your comments regularly (this is mostly me not knowing what to say, though I'm going to start fixing this habit), but I really deeply appreciate it.   And please feel free to add in crit if you like!  The point of this is for me to improve as a writer, so I can get published one day and send all of you signed copies of my bestselling books <3
