Back at Motor City, I bought yet another bootleg copy of Endless Waltz for $2. This one has completely different art from my other copy, which of course has different art from the official release. (Somewhat more hilariously, my official release is the one that doesn't play at all.)

I still really want to write a thorough and relatively-AU version of Wing. The problem is the brain weasels that keep hissing in my hindbrain that the things I want to do with the story-- the changes I want to make --are the things that'll get me skewered and destroy my fic-writing self-confidence even further. This is particularly hilarious because... who is even going to notice yet another mostly-gen Wing AU? Let alone if I play with the humanity, genders, bodies, raw... existence of some of the cast~~

I'll let the hindbrain play with the idea for a bit longer... HMMMM...

The last letter

Finally reached the point in my fourth (and last) chapter where I can insert the letter Raoul is seen writing at the start of the story. Copied more or less verbatim from the notes I made after the London Marathon, which is the point at which I had only just developed this section, and was thus able to recall it in far more detail than the rest; I changed very little, and as a result ended up crossing off the last page of my 'summary' at a rate about a dozen times faster than the rest of it!

Which means I'm almost finished after about sixty days of writing (has it really been that long?)

Now I just need to find an end for the story; I was thinking along the lines of 'romantic idiots'...

SuikoII, etc.

Well, I played about six hours of Suikoden II Saturday, instead of doing anything remotely productive like I needed to do (untrue? I did do a few things...) and don't regret it. ^^;; Riou is having an amusing wtf time of it all, Jowy, and Flik and Viktor do seem to have gotten married during the span between games. *grins* I look forward to more returning characters~ and all the new ones.

After finishing SuikoII, I do have both Suikogaidens, if I want to poke at them. I won't have clear data to load over, since I'm playing everything else on PS3 (the PS1 discs, I mean - I'm lazy and like my wireless controller) and I don't know if the Suikogaidens recognize NA clear data anyway... (I have had games recognize JP/NA data, unexpectedly, but I'm guessing it's the exception and not the rule.) I'm a little surprised there are no copies of the Suikogaidens available on Amazon right now... but I have had my copies for about a decade? I'm bad at keeping track of game prices/availability. Isn't SuikoII available on PSN? But used copies are still running $100 for a disc-only...

And here's some other stuff that came up in conversation with Ket:

Ages! I checked that character book that I have and while there are no official ages for the heroes, Jowy is 17, Viktor is 29/32, Flik is 25/28, and Gremio is 27/(30).

That pair of fic recs:

Unvoiced (1264 words) by Mithrigil
Fandom: Suikoden I
Rating: Teen And Up Audiences
Relationships: Gremio/Tir McDohl
Characters: Gremio, Tir McDohl
Additional Tags: First Time, Master/Servant, good to be alive, Spoilers for the good ending, Awkward Sexual Situations, awkward flailing
Summary: Gremio returns, on the eve of the siege of Gregminster. He promised, once, that he would never leave Tir: it’s Tir’s turn to make the same promise for Gremio.

Things to Toast (4250 words) by Mithrigil
Fandom: Suikoden I, Suikoden II
Rating: Mature
Relationships: Flik/Viktor
Characters: Flik (Suikoden), Viktor (Suikoden)
Additional Tags: Drunk Sex, Friends With Benefits, Porn Battle, First Time, the beast rune can never be buggered at all
Summary: After the events of Suikoden I, Flik and Viktor have survived a hell of a lot. That doesn't make Viktor any less insufferable. Getting drunk, however, does.

  • i knit a dog toy out of fancy pencil roving. i am happy about how pretty the colors are (it's why i bought the roving originally) and i'm happy anticipating the fun times i'll have with Leela. i'm also pleased that i was able to get over myself and use the roving instead of hoarding it against some "more worthy" project.


  • i gave some AU Marvel/AU Potterverse crossover fanfic a try, and it was delightful. someone in my circle recommended it, and i left it unread in an open tab for days. thanks! Every Little Thing He Does Is, featuring Steve Rogers the auror, adventure, fixit for the Wizarding world in the US, lots of Marvel nerdery, and a sweet PG romance.


  • if you are an American woman of a certain age, Oprah Winfrey is a presence in your life (whether you want her there or not). The Oprah Winfrey show is thirty years old now, and WBEZ Chicago did an excellent series of podcasts about the show and its impact on American culture. it was completely absorbing on a day when i really needed to get my brain to shut up.

  • this rare SFW Oglaf comic


  • i've been reading Code Name Verity to C before bed. he's well and truly hooked, and he's caught on to spoilery things well before i did when i read it. it's such a pleasure listening to him try to puzzle it out.

    And here's the other half of the Blake/Gan chapter; Blake's scenes weren't really long enough to stand on their own, and Gan's big scene would have made a very long single chapter in contrast. So we have here the combined outsiders' view of some fairly tumultuous events (and I've tried to distinguish the two different viewpoints).

    Chapter 6: Broken Trust

    Gan felt his mouth go dry. The spectre in black and white held them all, effortlessly, by sheer force of dominion. The voice, when it came, was distorted: a rising inhuman hiss through circuits that shielded and manipulated alike.

    “People of Newparis— I have brought you here to make an example. An example that some among you have forgotten. An example to all those in whose talent we trust.”

    Long, gloved fingers gestured, and a girl somewhere to the right cried out in one short sharp whimper of surprise. The crowd stirred, parting, as two broad-hewed men in dockyard clothes elbowed through with the chosen one caught up between them.

    Gan got one glimpse down at her face, white as ash beneath the pale plait that crowned her head; the whisper of Vargas’ double axe sang ghost-like through his mind and he almost reached out to her, but Blake caught at his sleeve, both of them unsure in that moment if she was to be heroine or sacrifice of the hour. “Gan, wait— we don’t know—”

    And then she was past and gone, hastened up to the stage where Dar stood rigid and grim, and Gan had only the memory of blue eyes pale as waxen thread, filled with all-consuming terror of the Ghost.Read more... )
