*blows dust off; coughs*

Where the hell have I been? Well, burnt out, overburdened at work, and getting through a very tough winter and spring. I'm not sure if things are truly looking up for 2015 yet, but let's hope so.

With all the changes, my project goals have gone through some revamping too. But I recently learned that telling your goals to others makes you less likely to achieve them, so I won't say any more about that.

Let me tell you about my wall calendar instead.

Every year I make my own on snapfish.com. It started after the Harry Potter movies ended and I didn't have anything fresh to put on my wall each year. Each year has a theme, and recent years the themes have centered around the cast of characters created by me and [personal profile] comma_chameleon, or rather the real life people who inspire the looks of the characters (since it is about pictures, after all). This year's calendar is AU pairings, and I also happened to send one off to her as well.

I was looking at my calendar this month and couldn't get a scene between the characters out of my head. I decided to write it. Then I decided to try writing a scene for each month's pairing. Then [personal profile] comma_chameleon decided we should challenge each other to a headcanon scene duel for the pairings.

SO IT'S ON.

I dunno if we're winning anything because how can we win at this, but it should be fun at least.

Rules are:
-1 scene only
-Must be 200-850 words

Let the games begin. )

Ahh I almost forgot to do this today! And it turns out the reason I hadn't heard from the editors in so long was because my email ate their messages. -___- Yay another surprise deadline!

There's some preeeetty random stuff in here. Some far-reaching references, too. >.>

And now I'm off to work, BYE. )

Laaaate posting again, why does shit always happen to me around drabble posting day? Blah.

GUESS WHAT, NEW CHARACTER OMG. I can't even call him a revamp, more like an entirely new person to replace an old one. He'll probably be in a few more drabbles next week, too.

Random stufffffff! )
telltale_commas: (Shige :3)
Wow, what the hell is this new posting format. WHY SO UGLY, LJ?!

OMG I HAVE TWO DAYS OFF IN A ROW THIS WEEK!!! CELEBRAAAATE! I did as little as possible today, putting off boring housework till tomorrow, as one should, and spent the day nibbling peppermint bark and watching Kitchen Nightmares.

I am super excited, though, about my current NaNo project. It just hit 78k words, and for the first time ever I feel like I've hit a turning point in a story. This point happens to be the halfway point, but I sat down and properly mapped out the rest of my plot. Now I just have to write it...

Anywho, drabble day! I think I overcompensated in variety this week to make up for last week. >.> Still kind of a lot of Eddie, though, and Yone too.

New character inside! )

Volume 17!! That is crazy!! And STILL no pirate drabbles! I should have done one on International Talk Like A Pirate Day... oh well.

This is totally gonna post after midnight, messing up my calendar. :| Too many Thanksgiving preparations, plus cleaning before winter really hits. Ah well. Thanksgiving food tomorrow!! Om nom nom.

Gratuitous Hana and Eddie because I can. )
telltale_commas: (Default)
Here I am, drabbling and watching TV instead of cleaning like I should be. >.> Oh well~.

Still semi-NaNoing! Only at 6k, but that's 6k I wouldn't have written otherwise. All in all this story is at a total of 68k... which might actually be the highest I've gotten a word count on a single story. I need to stop abandoning them.

I've still never written a pirate drabble. How disappointing. )

I almost forgot about drabble day! Actually I did forget until Saru posted. XD Working on Thursdays is really throwing me off.

...I just realized some of these can be read like they're part of one big storyline. A big MESSY storyline if they really were. Well, they're just drabbles, they can be taken any way you like, really.

Lots of Alex for some reason )
telltale_commas: (Default)
Sooo many drabblesss... I was much better at writing every day this week. Actually, I don't think I had to double up a single day! WOO!

We're entering the sad months... hopefully that doesn't mean all my drabbles turn sad. >.> Actually I've noticed I tend to write happier things when I'm sad. So contrary.

A verse update and something completely random that Saru will totally hate me for... also omg Allie! )
telltale_commas: (Default)
:O Ten volumes of these now!

I slipped a bit this week and missed a couple days in a row... a couple of times in a row. >.> That said, that is NOT the reason why there's kind of an accidental five-parter (counting the one from last week) in here. I don't know why I could just leave those two alone.

What else is in here... stuff. )
telltale_commas: (Default)
Ahhhhhh, drabble day again! What a stressful week this has been. But I bought some new pens and a notebook and am eying some purses right now, so maybe it's about to get better.

New character this week... he hasn't even been created yet! >.> But I'm making it happen.

Some verse updates and another two-parter within. )
telltale_commas: (Default)
Drabble daaaaay. My life still kind of sucks right now, but oh wells. We'll see what the next week brings.

This week's kind of band-heavy for some reason. >.> And less sad than usual! In fact, nothing's really sad in here, wtf. And another first time writing about a character, and I can't believe it took this long.

Still no pirates, sorry! )
telltale_commas: (Default)
Happy Drabble Day~

I tried really hard to make up for last week's sadfest, but I just had to include a follow-up to the RyoChris stuff. And that will prolly have it's own follow-up next week too. >.>

We have a first appearance this week! Dun dun dunnn.


Still no pirates within... gotta work on that. )
telltale_commas: (Default)
Well, well, well, if it isn't drabble post day. I'm thinking of making these public, because why not?

This week features some fresh appearances, a two-universe crossover, and a companion piece to an OF I forgot I was working on until a couple of weeks ago. >.> Exciting!

I will drabble your FACE )

Wow, I can't believe that was the first time I wrote about James or Yu... o_o
telltale_commas: (Default)
Hello again! Time for more drabbles~. I'm excited because I got everything set up into one big scrivener project, and it looks so nice and organized...

Anyway.

Drabbles everywhere )
telltale_commas: (Shige :3)
Sooo... still intending to utilize this space for all my original fiction. In keeping things organized yet secure, I'm still working on some things for this journal and for myself. I'd like to eventually have complete working character profiles for all my OCs, and some potentially less complete ones for Saru's OCs. That's a fairly huge undertaking and I'm still working on just the format for that.

BUT writing character profiles is not actually writing, and since "writing is a muscle," I needed something that lets me work it every single day. I've started writing one drabble every day, since "working on my stories" is an ambiguous goal that doesn't hold me accountable for anything, and really makes me feel guilty when I don't manage to make any headway.

These are real drabbles, 100 words each, no more, no less. Well, I go by what Scrivener tells me is 100 words, so sometimes extra ones might sneak in on the tail end of a hyphen just found out Scrivener counts even hyphenated words as multiple, yay! Or not yay, considering some of these guys stutter... oh well. Each entry shall feature the date it was written, a title, and the character(s) therein. Enjoy, or don't.


First batch! )
