So before I get down to edits for the day, I thought I'd do this fun meme. :D

List fifteen of your favorite characters from different fandoms, and ask people to spot patterns in your choices, if they're so inclined.

1. Shirogane Naoto, Persona 4

2. Cat Chant, Chrestomanci

3. Tenma Kenzo, Monster

4. Ginko, Mushishi

5. Natsume Takashi, Natsume Yuujinchou

6. Will Henry, The Monstrumologist series

7. Kaburagi Kotetsu, Tiger and Bunny

8. Elika, Prince of Persia '08

9. Claire "Lightning" Farron, FFXII

10. Tony Foster, the Smoke series

11. Jacuzzi Splot, Baccano

12. Fakir, Princess Tutu

13. Sun-Hwa Kwon, LOST

14. Veronica Mars, ... Veronica Mars

15. Hiccup, How to Train Your Dragon

(And bonus round: BALFOUR, HAVEMERCY. Because Balfour.)

Well, one thing I can tell you right off the bat: LOTS OF PROTAGONISTS. Also, my favorite guys tend to be adorable but have secret spines of steel, and my favorite gals tend to be very driven ladies with 'protector' roles in their respective canons. But I wonder if there's anything else...
sarashina: (Oz and Alice)
Okay, in lieu of actually writing (fail) I want to revive this meme to prove to everyone that "I hate female characters because they're written badly" is NOT AN EXCUSE. I feel like this isn't even a representative sample! I had to make myself stop!

100 Female Characters I Freaking Love )

Okay that's 110 and I have to stop.


sarashina: (Oz - vexed)
Just because this meme looked too fun to pass up.

Pick a character I write, and I will give you the top five ideas or concepts or factoids I keep in mind while writing that character that I believe are essential to depicting him or her accurately. This includes original characters and characters about whom I write fanfic.

Oh my God 12:40am. I need to be asleep five minutes ago.

Okay, I've got a longer post in the works, but I will work on that tomorrow once I have slept, 'cause damn, I am ready for that right now.

But seeing as it's the holidays and next week's going to be insanity on ice, I find myself ready for a Holiday Love Meme! You know you want to give me some sugar.

Not much going on except for work and Yuletide, though I am going ice skating tomorrow? But hopefully for the rest of the weekend, I will get to fall over and lie on my face for a while.

My first week is over, and I'm enjoying the hell out of my downtime! I'm also in a 'blab about writing' mood, so here's a meme that [ profile] inarticulate came up with:

So! Give me a character*, or two, or however many, and I will give you:

B) A runner up
C) A ship I dislike
D) My take on said character, unpopular or otherwise
E) If relevant, my happy ending (AU or non) for that character
F) A bit of headcanon about how I view their sexuality
G) A character from another fandom I would love them to meet

*Original characters would be great, but if you're not familiar with any/want to hear about a fannish character, I'm game for that, too. ♥

! Take a picture of yourself right now.
! Don't change your clothes, don't fix your hair - just take a picture.
! Post that picture with NO editing.
! Post these instructions with the picture.


Last day at home tomorrow. STILL PANICKING, but also very excited. ♥

Still packing! Still panicking! Still writing up my Five Things lists when I have the energy/time to think/type/take pictures/etcetcetc. But I have to be a little shameless.

the that's my favorite! meme

I write mostly original fics obviously, so favorite project/drabble/whatevs applies. Also I'm going to echo what [ profile] mekosuchinae said about pretending I'm too cool to care about comments (but really, it's all appreciated :D). Also also, let me know if you have a thread, and I will give you the love you deserve. ♥

I think I may actually crash after True Blood. I AM THAT TIRED. Last weekend at home, aaaaaaaaah.
sarashina: (Default)
Moving on Wednesday. Packing! Panic! Packing! Panic! Furniture-buying! Panic! I'm sorry I've been so all over the place, guys. Once I'm settled into my apartment the week after next, I'll be much more available. And online more often, for sure.

Until then, because everyone is doing it:

Ask me my Top Five Whatevers. Fannish or literary or otherwise. Any top fives. Doesn't matter what, really! Fandoms, ice cream flavours, books I might get around to writing one day, cartoon moments, women in my fandoms, OTPs, ideal holiday destinations, goals for the future, celebrity crushes, books I wish would be made into movies, love songs. And I will answer them all in a new post (or in comments). Possibly with pictures.

More memes

I AM BORED. And real life and I are still not on speaking terms. So let's do another meme, shall we?

Pick anything I've written, and I will do a dramatic reading for you. Includes all original projects, drabbles, fanfic, poetry, whatever! Check out the tags to find all the writings - all writing is filed under "Fiction: (project name)," "Drabbles: (project name)," "Fanfic: (fandom name)," or "Poetry."

Also, [ profile] imaginarybeasts #22 comes out tomorrow, and I'll put up a link to my story when it does!
sarashina: (Default)
Oh hello there, real life. I'm sorry to say this, but until you lay off the people I love, we just can't be on speaking terms. I'm leaving you for the internet.

So in honor of the new people around here (hi guys! Sorry this journal is so boring!) I thought I'd open the floor to questions! If there's anything you'd like to know about me - favorite food, blood type, how I like my marriage proposals, whatever - feel free to ask! ♥ And even if you've been around a while, you should ask whatever you like, too.

Additionally, I feel like picspamming, so if there's anything you'd like me to snap a picture of (WITHIN REASON NATURALLY), do tell. :D
sarashina: (Default)
Thanks for all your kind words, guys. ♥ I'll reply to your comments individually when I return.

Which brings me to the point of this post! I will be leaving appallingly early tomorrow morning to go to D.C and meet my potential employers/check out my potential apartment! I'll be there until Saturday night. I will most likely have regular access to internet, but I'll be scarce.

I should, however, have a lot of downtime, and I'm looking to do some writing type things that are fun and will make me feel a little better about things in general. So I thought I'd open one of these up again, since it's been a while!

Name one or more of my original characters and a prompt, and I will write a drabble. It can be from any of my original fics, or any cowriting projects. ♥ Go crazy!

Okay, time to attempt sleep again. See you guys later!
sarashina: (Default)
I will be updating like crazy this week with cowriting posts/fandom babbling/news on the trip to D.C to meet my (potential) employers, but for now, it's been a long two days. I needs some love.

Be Excellent to Each Other

Love meme! Yes, I know it's on DW, but you can comment using Open ID, or anon. So go on - give me some sugar. ♥
sarashina: (Default)
Name a fandom and I'll give you some unpopular opinions about it.

I don't know how unpopular my opinions will actually be, but...
sarashina: (Default)
Exams and such are over! I will probably still be scarce until the week after next, because now the long goodbye begins. Graduation is on the 23rd, and until then, I'll probably be spending as much time with my college friends as possible - I don't know when I'll see them again, after all.

But right now, I'm in the apartment alone and have some time to kill, and this meme looks fun. In the comments, I'm going to post 100 things that make me happy!

So I just came off a hellacious couple of weeks (which I will explain properly sometime soon) and I am feeling FREE AS THE WIND BLOWS. Best part? So many of my mental processes have been freed up, and I've been thinking about writing a lot more than I have been lately. Which feels so, so good.

I was thinking of a simple exercise I used to do with writing partners - I was actually telling [ profile] moonsheen about it the other day - and I thought I'd put it up here so that we all could play.

Here's how it goes: you ask me a question about a writing project, I answer, and ask a question about yours. Simple as that! It could be about a specific project, or something in general (like, say, "Who is your most ____ character?" or something like that.) And the questions can keep going back and forth for as long as you like.

I've always found that it's easier to get enthusiastic about a project and dive right into it when you can share your enthusiasm with someone else. And there are my ulterior motives, of course - I get to find out about everyone else's writing, too.

Just to remind you all, my big projects are:

In Descending Order
Grandmaster Draw

In progress:
The Imperial Guard
The Hungry Ground
Possession is Nine-Tenths of the Law

And there are also short stories like "The Mountain Sleeps" (and the not-yet-written universe based around that story), and cowriting and such.

Let's play?

Give me a character or pairing, as well as a prompt (a word, a phrase, a cliche, an AU, whatever) and I will write something of indeterminate length!

sarashina: (Default)
This thing is so freaking long, but it looks like tons of fun. OC meme! ♥

Been feeling so burned out lately. I need to get writing-things going so that I can start plotting things again! Going to revisit this meme again - maybe I'll think up some new characters, too.

Rather than a prompt, give me a type of relationship (i.e "best friend," "rival," etc) and I'll write an interaction between characters who embody that relationship. Let me know if you want to play along - I'll give you one, too!
sarashina: (Default)

Also, I have a vacation coming up, and I am beginning to fear that I have seen/read all the animanga worth seeing/reading, which I'm sure is not true. What are some of your favorite series? The more obscure, the better. Series with a creepy atmosphere, gorgeous art, and/or adorable characters are definitely a plus.
