 Hi! This Dreamwidth account is mainly used for posting my fanfiction. You can take a look at my tags or my fanfiction.net account to see what I've written. I am no longer updating my memories as of April 9, 2013.

I am also flonnebonne on LivejournalIf you knew me on LJ, please add me to your circle on Dreamwidth! I'm slowly trying to move my friendslist from LJ over here. 

In general, feel free to add me to your circle/friendlist, comment on any of my posts, or just lurk. I hardly ever lock anything and I don't bite (at least not online I don't).

I mentioned wanting to play the RPG Child of Light a while back. My brothers and I finished it a few months ago and it is just as beautiful as the trailer promised. It's not just the graphics--the music is remarkable. You can have a listen at the artist's website.

The gameplay is lots of fun--the battle system is quite original, and even just moving around the map is fun. And it can be two-player! Honestly, I don't know why companies don't make RPGs multiplayer more often.

The story is generally good, and the writing is uneven but it's genuinely trying to do something different. It's all written in rhyme and meter in this airy, fairy-taley way, but sometimes you can tell the writers needed more time to polish their verses. The ending felt rushed too. But these are minor quibbles. Overall, best RPG I've played in a long time.

Happy Hikago Day! Because I am a terrible, no good, horrible person, I have created a collection of (rather low-quality) screenshots of Hikaru going from mildly worried to crying his head off on May 5.

Enjoy! (Because you are terrible too!) )

This post was totally inspired by you people and also this totally depressing but wonderful essay

Hikago Day!

A few random things to enjoy on May 5: 

1. Blind_go fics are up! My fic is in there somewhere. It is, er, kind of still in first draft form. 

2. This general resource on the manga and anime is amazing. Seriously in-depth, detailed notes on everything and everyone in and about Hikago. Look at this page on Hikaru's grandmother who is only ever mentioned once, not even pictured, in the series. 

I know everyone but me probably knows about this website already, but WOW. 

3. A haunted goban on eBay. Ooooohh.

4. Hikaru no Girl (on Ao3 and ff.net), crossdressing fanfic, which I haven't finished reading yet but which I am finding awesomely hilarious, and Ao3 has been talking about genderbending lately, so. 

5. Agh, I need a number five so I will just ramble. I have been reading the official Viz manga of the Sai arc and Hokuto arc for the first time, and there are a few bits of commentary by Hotta Yumi that I hadn't seen before. The main thing that made me go OMG was the page where she explained the process of checking go stone accuracy: 

"After the manga pages are completed, Yoshida-san the editor and Obata sensei go over the illustrations panel by panel to make sure they match the game record...After that, the Japan Go Association checks it and we make corrections as needed. 

"Even so, sometimes a mistake will slip through. Once, a misplaced go stone was caught by someone operating the press at Kyodo Printing.

"Hikaru no Go has been a labor intensive manga. 

"To Obata sensei's assistants--thank you for your hard work all this time."

...THIS TOOK SO MUCH TIME FROM MY LIFE.

Mahou Shounen Kuroko Magica is complete.

New chapters start from here

...I am thinking of renaming it "Mahou Shounen Kuroko Basketballica." Is that a terrible idea? Probably.

Rule of thumb for self: when writing an AU that is in danger of retreading significant canon ground, don't reread canon. You will just end up rehashing the whole thing without inserting enough of your own ideas.

(Lol I used the re- prefix three times there.)

Temeraire!

Soooooo I finished reading the eight Temeraire books that are out (up to Blood of Tyrants) and I am like totally to read some fanfic and meta and uh maybe some history write-ups so I can figure out which events were like totally not really in history at all so I won't look silly at parties. Also interested in fanart and vids and whatever--anything, really, as long as it's good. I like Tharkay a lot, but really I like everyone. Gimme gimme gimme.

Anyone know a good Chinese-English dictionary app? A lot of my students use Youdao (有道) and I think it has a lot of problems.

Anyone have any awesome recommendations for places to go in England? In the British Isles? I have the chance to get out of London this trip so I want to make the most of it!

Misdirection 2015 author reveals are up! 

I wrote Mahou Shounen Kuroko Magica, a crossover between Kuroko no Basket and Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica. Uh, the fic has a LOT of spoilers, so don't read it unless you've seen/read both series to the end. I mean it!

(Because I am a terrible person I somehow deleted the spoiler note on the fic itself during the first few days of the challenge--my bad if anyone was spoiled.) 

I'll probably repost the story on DW/LJ when it's done, but for now it's just on A03. If you want to leave a comment, you can leave it here if you prefer. :D

I take back every bad thing I said about Ace of Diamond! No wait, I don't. Protagonist boy Sawamura really is annoying for the first few episodes (if not more), but he is hilarious and pretty loveable later on. And the rest of the characters are great too. I think Miyuki is my favourite. I like how smart he is.

The show's humour reminds me of Slam Dunk, which is a good thing. :)

Fics for Misdirection 2015: the Kuroko no Basket guess-the-author challenge are up! Mine is in there somewhere. Somewhere.

I haven't read many of the fics yet but I plan to. :D

 So a couple days ago my mom had nothing to do so she kindly cleaned my bathroom...and left the toothbrush she was using to do the cleaning in my toothbrush holder. The next morning, guess what I picked up to brush my teeth? >_<

But that was last year, so no biggie! Happy 2015!

Have I ever recced this here? I can't find it in my tagged entries so let's post this possibly again. 

Final Fantasy 6: Reversing the Design

Game design analysis is crazy good!

My uncle is planning to visit Japan (probably Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka and maybe Nara) and he has some trouble walking long distances. Anyone have any advice or know of any reasonably-priced tours that he can go on? My cousin will probably be accompanying him btw.

Blind_go round 16 fics are up! 

I've been too exhausted by work to do any fic writing, so I didn't even get close to finishing my fic. Anyway, it's a fic idea that's been sitting on my hard drive for years and will probably never be finished.

Here's the beginning and end of it in case anyone wants to see: 

Hikaru 1/2 )

So my mom has finished watching all of Prince of Tennis (she didn't seem surprised at all by the ending) and she doesn't want to watch any of the OAVs because they don't really finish their story lines.

Can anyone rec another series for her to watch? 

She likes:
-silly, unrealistic stuff (eg: she likes Yowamushi Pedal and doesn't like Haikyuu) 
-finished series

As much as I would love to give her Slam Dunk, I think it would be too slow for her. :(  

[Edit] I forgot the mention that she has already seen Kuroko no Basket!

This is what I submitted for [community profile] blind_go : 


Hand of God by skays on deviantART

I made this in Meritum Paint on iPad in about an hour, which is really fast for me. I like how it turned out. 

Meritum Paint is this app that likes to throw up uncontrollable fwoo fwahs of colour all over the canvas. It's great. I love it. Can you tell I am tired right now. 

I really liked doing a non-fic, low-key round of blind_go. 

Zzzzz...
