So I'm sure most of you noticed this before me anyway because I was asleep and all that, but [livejournal.com profile] switching_it_up has begun posting and there is amazing fanart. I think I know who's responsible and I'm seriously itching to ask omg. *sits on hands*

So I know I only wrote D1 sci-fi AU a little while ago *eyes subrosa fic still in need of rewokring* but can I write D1 (/Rikkai) sci-fi war epic now? Can I can I can I?
firstlight: (Illumi - <3)
...woah, they actually have any form of Rikkai merchandise for sale? What is this madness? XD;;


Lynn wrote a Hunter x Hunter ficlet (Killua, Gon). This sort of thing is to be thoroughly encouraged. Everyone should write HxH fic.


I haven't completed fic in a while, or so it feels. But I am 3000 words into classified project no. 1 and once I'm done with that I'll need to bounce straight over to classified project no. 2 if I'm going to meet my deadlines. After that it's a deathmatch between projects 3 and 4. Shoot me. :) Yes. Me and my writing-masochism ARE enjoying this, thanks. Ever so much.

At risk of tedium, because really we all know I'm hideously biased about fic and my recommendations (and dislikes for that matter) should be taken with a mound of salt, here is a fic I really enjoyed by [livejournal.com profile] yuki_scorpio. It is Yagyuu/Niou. It is incredibly AU. It has a bit of sex. It has character death and stuff.

I could talk about it a whole bunch only I'm not entirely sure how Pez would feel about that. *g* I did have some reservations about it, and do, but even so. I think it's a wonderfully told story and my disbelief has been thoroughly suspended, which I have to admit happens pretty rarely with fanfic. I also just couldn't stop reading, even on the second and third goes through... I am recommending this one really strongly on grounds of story. Narrative. That stuff.

(It reminds me of something but, appropriately enough, I can't bloody remember what.)

Reveals are up on [livejournal.com profile] rikkai_exchange! It's totally done, wrapped up, posts have been edited to include author's names, etc. And I'm so relieved.



Reveal time having arrived means I can own up to the fact that I wrote Moments of Grace (Sanada/Yukimura, Niou/Yukimura, NC-17), though I think everyone who actually read it and some people who didn't probably figured that one out anyway.

A few comments on my fic and stuff )



Things I especially enjoyed from this round, by the way, include... )

I promise there's plenty of stuff I didn't mention here which is worth reading or staring at! :)



Incidentally, on a quick count-up, it seems as though Yagyuu and Niou pretty much ruled the exchange between them -- just counting stories/art where they were the main characters they accounted for almost half the submissions this time around. Last year Yanagi/Kirihara was second most popular but this year it's pretty much gone, and Sanada/Yukimura/Yanagi (which was somewhere around the same popularity as Yanagi/Kirihara) has more or less vanished too. Everything else is sort of ambling along at about the same levels. *laugh* A bit less AU.

And we're done.

Thank you all. *__*

It's been a long, long time since I read so much fanfic as I have been this week. This is all [livejournal.com profile] saiyuki_time's fault. I've become really picky with fic, to be honest, and I can probably be overly harsh... flaws tend to overshadow good points pretty badly for me. But I'm trying to be a little less demanding.

And I've been enjoying myself over in Saiyuki fandom as a result. Yay. :D

Of course, the amount of interesting fic produced for the opening [livejournal.com profile] saiyuki_time challenges has helped a lot. I hope it keeps going like this, it's kind of incredible.

Crystal wanted to know what I'd liked from it. Have a list. It's totally possible I've missed good stuff, there's been so much posted. :D :D :D

I woke up before six this morning, but at least I've spent some of that time happily reading stuff posted on [livejournal.com profile] saiyuki_time. There's some really nice bits and pieces over there; I do recommend checking it out if you're interested in Saiyuki and haven't been reading stuff there.

Particularly recommended are-

Everything in Time by [livejournal.com profile] devikun (Gojyo and Jien, R)

The Creator by [livejournal.com profile] louiselux (Nii, remarkably worksafe considering that it's.. well.. Nii.)

Slow Burn by [livejournal.com profile] emungere (Koumyou, worksafe.)

And there are others that're well worth a read around the place too. :)

For myself, I'll take a shot at the challenges some time in the next couple of days, whenever things hit a bit of a lull.
