And you know, I love Dragon Quest and all, but 28k in I have to say...I WOULD FUCKING KILL FOR SOMETHING WITH FOUR TIRES AND AN ENGINE TO SHOW UP RIGHT NOW.

*breathes*

Okay, that's out of my system. I can go back to letting Alena eviscerate a troll now.

Edit: Or a giant spider. I bet I could work a giant spider in...or a flying wolf, maybe. Hell, a fucking munky. MAYBE A PURPLE DINOSAUR I DON'T KNOW. *twitch*

Comment if you want to be added. (IJ folk, never fear, I'll be crossposting everything, it just won't be filtered on IJ because I can't keep track of two filters.)

This is the sort of thing you'll be reading, though really, it's like to get MUCH more random and rambly as the month continues. Possibly with random other fandoms taking up the word count. If porn happens, I absolutely refuse to post it. Unless I do. In other words: IT'S NANO, YA PAYS YER MONEY AND YA TAKES YER CHANCES. )

All of this gets written in 750 words (ie, pure braindump), which is why there's no proper formatting, and spelling and grammar are optional.

Also, I would like to state for the record that I have already written 2/3 of my usual NaNovel length. GO ME.

Dear Angelo

I would like to remind you that Alena can beat you up.

Jess can also beat you up.

Cristo...probably can't beat you up, but if you keep hitting on Alena you will make him bitchface more than usual, and then Alena will beat you up again.

In conclusion, stick with the redhead you've got instead of oggling the "guardswoman" you just met, m'kay?

I spent the morning writing several hundred words of unrelated RP stuff.

But I guess I just needed to get Shadow out of my system, because I spent the drive to work with Princess Alena regaling Eight and Angelo with the story of how Prince Charmles cried and locked himself in his room when she visited Ascantha.

Both times she visited Ascantha.

He was seven the first time.

The second time was...after his engagement to Princess Medea had been dissolved. XD

Of course, given that she's telling this story on the practice yard while beating the crap out of both our fine young heroes probably makes the whole crying-and-hiding thing more understandable.

Oh Alena, you are still my favorite. <3

Spent last night listening to my Dragon Quest playlist and watching the DQ vids [insanejournal.com profile] myopicmirror04 made for me (particularly the one to Nox Arcana's Ancient Legacy, and the partial that was started for my DQ8/DQ4 crossover), then got up this morning and wrote over 800 words on A Dark Forsaken Road.
dragovianknight: closeup of a green dragon (DQ8 - Angelo - Still the Prettiest)
I think I'm going to repost "A Dark Forsaken Road" (Dragon Quest VIII AU; Angelo gets imprisoned and brainwashed by Rhapthorne) to AO3. The idea is that posting will encourage me to actually finish the damn thing, and then I will continue to write.

Of course, with my luck I will proceed to write in a dead fandom, but. You know. Can't have everything.

I should import my Dragon Quest icons to Dreamwidth, just in case.

Edit: Does a story need a major character death tag if the character(s) in question don't stay dead? (Yes, I do abuse my fandom's resurrection magic, so there.)

I updated a Dragon Quest VIII fic I haven't updated in something like two years, just because I found a mostly finished chapter on my hard drive and thought, "Why not?" Of course, it may be another two years before I write the next chapter. :P

Edit: Correction, make that almost four years. The last update before today was 12-3-06; I suspect the part I just posted was probably written right around that time.

This is what falls out of my brain when I write 753 words in 18 minutes. (The missing sixty-ish words were me blathering about how, no, really, I was going to write, before the actual writing started.)

DQ8, violence, I think I may have posted the story fragment this ties to, but if not you'll be even more lost. )

Four more days of writing and I earn a penguin badge! (SHUT UP I AM ALLOWED TO BE EASILY ENTERTAINED DAMN IT! Though I wish it was a slime badge.)

VICTORY!

Me 'n' Jose Cuervo wrote 564 words of Angelo and Hades bitching about their mothers in law. Will post tomorrow, when I can be sure it makes some kind of sense.

And because I have NO SHAME at the moment, a double drabble for [insanejournal.com profile] the_willow.

You would make a good Weyrleader, Goldarth said. )

I spent last night/today comment ficcing at [personal profile] myopicmirror04, because I made the mistake of writing down a few lines, and those lines spawned a few more, and then... Not really a surprise, given that this is how most of what I write happens.

Just to be clear: I don't know what came before, I don't know what's going on, I don't know if it falls into any of my existing universes, and I don't know if there will be more. What I do know is that if I don't post it and tag it, in six months I'll be going, "OMG, does anyone remember that thing I wrote, I can't find it on my hard drive."

He looked up at his name, through light which shimmered and wavered like water. )

Nooooo!

dragovianknight: A small kitten draped in green yarn (Knitting - Kitten & yarn)
Unfair! I have knitting projects from here until forever, and now KnitPicks is taunting me with new yarn colors! So wrong. So wrong!

Also, I can't find that story I mentioned a few posts ago. But that's okay. I remember the best bits. I can rebuild it. Better. Stronger. Angstier. Right after I do my areyougame fic.
(Marcello: Damn, I was hoping she'd forgotten about that.
Angelo: You're the one with amnesia, not her.
Marcello: And you wonder why I hate you.)

I re-discovered my DQ8 vampire fic thanks to the WIP meme, and decided it can probably be salvaged. You know, later, when I have time. Man, Angelo hates being my favorite.

On the up side, I can haz baaaaaby dragons. There is my ochre egg Adopt one today!, which you have already seen, and then today I grabbed a white egg with yellow stripes Adopt one today! and a frill egg Adopt one today!, and then I decided to see if I could breed my blue striped dragon to my red male, and they produced this pretty egg Adopt one today!.

Sooo tiiired. Worked all day, and then spent over two hours working on the magazine so I can drop off a final proof in the morning. Also huuuungry, though I've something in the oven to remedy that.

Got my car back yet again, but brought the store truck home tonight just to be on the safe side, since I was driving late. Maybe Edea can come home tomorrow.

And then I got home, downloaded my secondary email (the one I use for shopping and forums, so that I don't get spammed to death), and for whatever reason KnitPicks has sent me a $10 gift card. Which, given my addiction to their yarn, is a very good thing indeed. So that part of the day didn't suck.

But OMG my brain is trying to kill me! *cries* (Ficbit behind cut) )
dragovianknight: closeup of a green dragon (Default)
A while ago, I wrote a drabble for someone (was it [profile] melodywilde?) in which Medea went looking for Angelo for help, and found Marcello instead. And I thought that would be the end of it.

Apparently, I was wrong.

And so, another drabble, and I have the dreadful suspicion there may actually be a STORY in this. )

And I totally came up with a prompt that I wish I'd thought of in time for [community profile] areyougame. So if you see this next round, pretend you don't know it's mine. As if it could be anyone else's. )

Now, off to work.

I like hyphens. ^__^

*ahem*

  • Hats knit for the Hundred Hat Project: 58

  • Socks completed: 1

  • Drabbles: a surprising 10, five of which are connected

  • Not-drabbles: an even more surprising 5


For record-keeping purposes, the drabbles arecut because the list got dreadfully long )
dragovianknight: closeup of a green dragon (Default)
Instead of just writing partial scenes.

Like this one. )

Clearly, a Major Reveal from the DQ8/DW*4 crossover. I just wish I knew where I was and how I got there. And who the old guy was. ::facepalm to infinity::

Really, you'd think by now I'd know that no matter how convinced I am I'll remember $major_plot_point later, I'm not going to remember it.

*Yes, Dragon Warrior IV; I can't keep the old names from crowding out the new, and also, I was not so thrilled with the pseudo-Russian accents. Torneko Taloon and Ragnar McRyan are my only concessions to the new version. Err, and they probably won't be in this anyway.

First off, you should know this is all [personal profile] queenoftheskies fault. She claimed the springkink prompt Dragonquest VIII, Marcello/Eight: undeserved compassion - I think it'd be easier if you would just hate me , and she said, "I have $scenario; give me some ideas how it could have happened." And so, I started tossing out ideas, one of which was, "Angelo finally snapped and decided to kill Marcello."

And then the bunicorn which had snuck up behind me bit my ass. -__-

And then drabbles happened. (The draft from earlier now has the proper number of words.)

I think it would be easier if you'd simply hate me. )

Have some baaaaaby dragons: Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today!
