 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).

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...

Go movie

A Korean movie about go came out recently! It's called The Divine Move.

Trailer

My brother actually managed to watch this in theatre here in Canada, so it might be playing wherever you are! He said it was a fun movie with lots of action and you don't need to understand go to enjoy it. :)

Been watching a lot of sports anime lately--though perhaps I shouldn't say "watching" when I've only been half paying attention to the animated high school boys running around and screaming on my TV screen.

From least recently to most recently watched: Free!, Eyeshield 21, Haikyuu, Diamond no Ace, Yowamushi Pedal, Ping Pong, Kuroko no Basket )



After bingeing on so much sports anime, I think what I really want is a series that deconstructs sports anime. A show that would expose the id of the shounen sports protagonist! That would reveal the consequences of maiming yourself for life (physically, mentally, academically) so you could get a measly high school trophy! The Evangelion of sports anime! Ha ha, come to think of it I would probably hate it.

I also really want to watch a female sports series one of these days. (At least Haikyuu acknowledges that a girls' team exists at the school.) I need to look up that girl tennis show I saw a bit of once...

This existentialist reading of Chrono Trigger is so good. Made me teary-eyed at the end.

Socksmakepeoplesexy.net has a great explanation for how FFVIII came to be such an interestingly psychotic game. Here's a sample from the middle of the article:  

I imagine the events leading to Final Fantasy VIII's inception went down something like this: every Monday morning, Sakaguchi would call Kitase (director), Nojima (scenario writer), Hiroyuki (battle designer), Nomura (character designer), and Uematsu (composer) into his office and sit them all down. He'd remind them that the wildly successful sequel to Final Fantasy VII wasn't just going to make itself, and the clock was ticking. "Stop pussyfooting around it," he'd tell them, "and make it happen already."

All of them were reluctant to even get started. They knew what kind of pressure they'd be dealing with. They knew the standards being demanded of them would be impossible to meet. You can't blame them for being intimidated. Most of them would just retreat to their offices and whittle the days away, sulking and procrastinating while sipping Sapporo and surfing the Internet for Final Fantasy VII Geocities fan pages and Tifa + Cloud + Sephiroth hentai.

Eventually, Sakaguchi was fed up. He had Kitase, Nojima, Hiroyuki, Nomura, and Uematsu all dragged into a conference room, supplied them with a week's worth of bottled oolong tea, Oronamin C, shrink-wrapped convenience mart sandwiches, and cigarettes, then locked them in, telling them they had three days to either come up with a plan for Final Fantasy VIII or tender their letters of resignation.

What nobody knew at the time, however, was that there was a gas leak in this particular conference room.

DAY ONE, HOUR THREE: Nomura sits in corner, surrounded by a pile of crumpled-up character sketches. No matter how much he tries, he can't come up with a hero who doesn't look like Cloud or Ramza. Nojima has just spent an hour plotting a story together, only to realize that he's just rewriting Final Fantasy V with more robots. Uematsu has been playing chopsticks on his Casio keyboard since Sakaguchi locked the doors.

DAY ONE, HOUR FIVE: Uematsu and Hiroyuki claw at the door, screaming to be let out. Kitase has already eaten half the sandwiches himself out of self-pity. Nojima is pacing and chain-smoking.

DAY ONE, HOUR TEN: Nomura has drawn a quick doodle in his notebook of Mickey Mouse dressed in a trench coat. For some reason, he can't stop staring at it. Hiroyuki asks Uematsu if he smells something funny. Uematsu says no, but then bursts into laughter and can't quite say why.

Read the rest here.

I previously posted my DOINK fic on Dreamwidth, and of course it's on A03 as well. It is a very silly fic. Now go read Blueprint, the wonderful Sabin-centric FF6 fic that was written for me by deadcellredux. It is sad and it is hopeful and it is pure FF6. How happy am I that it's the twentieth anniversary of FF6 this year, and I got to both write and receive FF6 fic for DOINK? I seriously considered writing the other great prompts I got--an FF12 one (Basch and Larsa shenanigans), an FFT one (Agrias!), and, er, an FF13 one I wouldn't have chosen because I haven't played that game--but in my heart I knew it had to be FF6 this year. :) I had some problems with posting the final version of my fic to A03, and I, um, got the name of my beta wrong because I'm a terrible person, but generally it all went smoothly and I was super impressed with how well-run the exchange is.

Title: No Wings for You!
Fandom: FF6
Characters: Edgar, Setzer, Celes, Sabin
Genre: HUMOUR. And a bit of angst. And I guess a little romance.
Wordcount: 10,067
Summary: Edgar and Setzer's Excellent Drunken Adventures in Airship Repair. Apologies for all the fake mechanical whatsit!
Note: Written for branfordtough as part of DOINK! Final Fantasy Exchange 2014, in response to her prompt: During the second half of FFVI's storyline, Edgar and Setzer get to know each other better through the inadvisable combination of alcohol consumption and airship maintenance/repair. Whether this ends in awkward, drunken makeouts, a narrowly averted crash, both, or neither is up to you!

Thank you to accidental_zombie for the beta! Any remaining errors are mine.

 

Druuuuuuuunk. )

I missed the blindgo deadline and I didn't actually do anything for Hikago Day, so I am going to navel-gaze at my own Hikago fics. All the links below go to FF.net because I am laaaaazy. 

Fave serious fic:
Do I have serious fics? Ha ha. Maybe the first part of Hikaru's Game

Fave comedy fic:
Happy as a Pan, probably. 

Fic I need to revise:
The Language of War. This fic is weighed down by the overly thinky main character. But it would be a huge revision job and I don't waaaaanna at least for now. 

Fic I will probably never finish:
Go Wars. I like it, but it looks like way too much work. Anyway, the main purpose of the fic was to eventually make jokes about Waya and Le Ping and the Clone Wars, but  

Fic I should probably finish:
Blind Woe. Only needs one more chapter. 

Fic idea I'll never write: 
A crossover with 1984, where all information pertaining to Sai is censored by the Institute of Truth and go philosophy is transmuted via doublethink into something that makes total sense (the Hand of God is something we should reach for but ultimately unreachable; go is useless but also the most important thing in the world). 

Fic with the most reviews on FF.net:
Hair Today, Go Tomorrow. A fic with ONE JOKE. A lot of the reviews are people saying "hey what does jailbait mean agh I looked it up." I'm proud of my influence on young minds. 

Fic I've gotten the most positive feedback on: 
Kuwabara is Dead (Long Live the Honinbou). Just the other day I was teaching a kid to use death foreshadowing at the beginning of his story and I realized what an easy thing it is to do. And it works!

First Hikago fic:
Go Fish in 2005. So I've been writing in this fandom for...nine years. Egad. 
 
How my writing has Hikago writing has changed over the years:  
It keeps getting more and more meta. I think that's pretty normal though, right? Right? 


Anyone else want to navel-gaze? Let's turn it into a meme! *chirp chirp cricket chirp*
