On me

I write a lot of fic and make a lot of icons. I am also really, really bad at tagging. Things do eventually get tagged, it just takes a while. If you can't find it, it doesn't mean it doesn't exist, really.

So, I'm moving.

I've been long wanting to split from LJ; I just could never force myself to do it. This is the first step towards doing so.

I do have various and sundry journals (mostly RP) scattered over LJ. For the most part, they are dead and not moving. For example, [livejournal.com profile] osoruosoruosoru (The CFUD Mio Journal) is not moving; I rather need it to play in CFUD.

The two journals going inactive on LJ are this one ([livejournal.com profile] estirose) and estorise ([livejournal.com profile] estorise. After remembering to post the tail end of my 2009 nanonovel (oops), esti_rise is going too. That being said, I'm still very fond of the friends I've made on LJ and it's not impossible that you'll see estirose popping up on your my guests feature.

If you are looking for content for these two journals, you can friend estirose on dreamwidth, and Estilog on my own site. (You can subscribe to the feed at [livejournal.com profile] estilog.)

So, one last post before I move to Dreamwidth/blog. I'm mostly doing this because I started Yuletide on this journal, and I felt I should do my reveal here.

First of all, thank you to henshin and zenfu for my lovely Yuletide gift fics! I loved them both.

I wrote five fics in five fandoms for five recipients. They were Never Give Up (Mei-chan no Shitsuji), which was my assignment, and the gift fics Closer Ties (Kamen Rider Den-O), Loki and the Cup of Jonar (Norse Mythology), For All The Flaws (Earth: Final Conflict), and A Most Content Husband (Gokusen). I enjoyed writing every single one of them. I put a few thoughts about these fics here on the new blog.

ETA: I volunteered to beta a fic at the last minute on the #yuletide IRC channel, and it turned out pretty darn good (not that it needed a whole lot of help). It's Set (Me&You) = The Result of (Try (Get Things Right)), a TRON fic featuring Flynn/Alan.

I'm thinking seriously of not posting to LJ, for at least the fandom stuff. I'm going to Dreamwidth, and also setting up a wordpress blog on an Estirose subdomain.

If I have you friended on LJ but not DW and you're on that service, please let me know your DW username.

Fic: Everything has always gone well (Virtual Villagers 3)

Last Day of Work is tremendously cool with people writing fanfic about their games. Virtual Villagers 3 is about the members of an overburdened tribe who strike out to find a new home, and they do, in a ruined city.

Yuletide and meme

First of all, I got a lovely little Kamen Rider Kiva fic for Yuletide. It's Taiga/Wataru, just as I requested! (Writer, if you are reading this, thank you.)

Family Relations: Taiga, Wataru, Nago, and Megumi have Christmas dinner. Megumi points out something obvious.

I'll get to reccing when I get a chance.

And because I stumbled across this and couldn't resist:

I think I have finished writing for Yuletide this year. *kerflop*

Five stories, five fandoms, five recipients. Whew!

This year was a bit challenging Yuletide-wise, as I decided for no good reason to write a different format for one fic, other than it sounded best. Hopefully that particular treat's recipient likes it and does not decide to throw bricks at me. :)

Of the five fics, four were in fandoms I'd written before and the fifth was a fandom of happy memories. Two were over 1000 words, two were between 500 and 1000, and one was below 500. Two were het, two were gen, and one was other. In all, I'm happy, and if my recipients run across this at some point, I just wanted to say I loved all your prompts.

Now to non-Yuletide fics.

So, coming up to the end of the year....

And I'm in need of inspiration again.

Editors/proofreaders needed

I am in need of proofreaders/editors for my last three years' worth of NaNo novels, with varying degrees of urgency. I can pay a small amount/do paid time/etc.

I hit 50,000! Yay!

*Kercollapse*

I actually hit it at lunch today, but Google Docs and my work computer didn't want to cooperate really well.

Gads.

I'm thinking of making a small Taiga/Wataru archive. I have no clue what software I'll be using (Ghostly uses Wordpress and the other archives use efiction). I just want to collect it off of LJ.

I think I'm nuts. Moreso than usual.

...anyone else interested?

(ETA: Maybe not?)

Random sentence from my novel I had to share

"Hello, Erin," Dr. Jackson said, voice sounding a little strained. "Our... friends didn't take well to your disappearance. Urk. Please assure Lyltae that you're fine."

Yeah, one of my characters is a bit upset....

Apparently I am in spam mode tonight.

I asked [livejournal.com profile] brittyone for a set of interview questions/meme, so....

Comment to this entry with 'DON'T PROCRASTINATE SO MUCH' and I'll ask you five questions, then you make a post answering them with this bit over them or a phrase of your choice. (And yes, I need to stop procrastinating.)

RP stuff. Probably not very interesting unless you like seeing me fret.

Personal Yuletide stats this year

I requested 4 and offered 10. Of the 10, I can guarantee I will not be writing 2, one because it was the fandom where I was the only requester, and the second had no requests.

Of the fandoms, I've written in 7/10 in this journal, 6/10 are Japanese-language. Of the fandoms I offered, 8 were primarily tv, 1 was book, 1 was a manga. 3 of them were for series introduced via CFUD.

I have the greatest odds of getting 2 Japanese series. I have the least odds of getting the book series.

My prediction: I will get the book series. I have only one character offered-to-write, but I know one of the DYW letters has that character requested, so.

*Goes off to reread book*

Random question

How much of my flist is doing NaNoWriMo?
How many of you are doing Yuletide?

I don't know if this is going to be a regular thing or not. I'm using the random fics thing on Ghostly to choose 5 fics to spotlight.
