I have to say, I got so many great comments on Waking Up that I don't know how to answer them all :X It's really given me a boost in terms of fic morale! ♥ Thank you all so much!

But I also wanted to say, if you haven't read Nothing Special by [livejournal.com profile] te_chan01, I am not joking, you're missing out! It's an amazing get-together story and I always adore her storytelling and the way she develops the relationships. So, Yasubers, go read it!

After a couple of hours more troubling mystery dizziness, I think I'm going to venture out to Costa and see if they have any of that nice choc hazelnut cake today. >.> Then I'll do work/write fic there, delete as applicable lol.

My n key isn't working very well rn! So please insert n's where appropriate!

As if I didn't have enough reasons to love her, [livejournal.com profile] giving_ground wrote Sanzo & Goku drabble. It's lovely, so go and read it! :D

It's also come to my notice that it's Hakkai's birthday today! [livejournal.com profile] sw_book drew a couple of extremely cute pics. I better work on this thrice-damned fic, now I've straightened one or two things out in my head about it. Also, check out this series of Harry Potter-type Saiyuki drabbles by [livejournal.com profile] theemdash. Very clever, especially the one with Gonou. *grin*

I know I shouldn't like this Fedde le Grand song, but somehow it's irresistible. I also keep hearing Over and Over by Hot Chip, which I *hated* at first, but have come to love, in all its bonkers monkey-with-a-miniature-cymbal glory. Loving that Little Chris song (Checkin' it Out) too, for some reason, though again, it feels kind of wrong. More 16-year-olds. It's all just a terrible coincidence, I tells ya!

It feels like Friday today. This ain't good. -_-

Hey, what's with all the good Hyotei fic today? o.o I don't read as much for PoT as I used to, but I'm glad I idly clicked on some fics - excellent OshiGaku from [livejournal.com profile] jellypond here and from [livejournal.com profile] akahannah here, and also a very nice Higa story (again by [livejournal.com profile] jellypond) here. Now gotta find enough brain power to leave feedback.

I think the fear's come back - joy, eh? )

Which reminds me - got to go to the gym this weekend! Not been for yonks. Wanna write too - get all the important scenes done with, then starting filling in the gaps. Well done, brain, for waiting till I've written 3500 words to let me know I need to write in at least one more character and associated plot-line... ^^'

Have another song, folks! Go on, you know you want to. This one's like a combination of Electric 6 and Basement Jaxx, and contains a tuba solo. How cool is that?! Download it if you like crazy funky music that makes you want to point at things and shout. (That's what it does to me, anyway.) Braund Reynolds - Rocket (Natural Gambler)

Have some tentacles. Yes, I finally got round to reading [livejournal.com profile] ciceqi's Saiyuki/Lovecraft fusion-thingy. It's sanity-losin' good!

Was so, so cold at work today. I think I have chilblains on my hands now. x_o Only three more days to go! I'm a little sad, but part of me thinks it'll be nice to have a break. ^^' Man, I'm such a workshy slacker. And I say that with pride!

Oh, thanks to [livejournal.com profile] noaizumi - your card arrived today! :D Thank you!

I want 2006 to be the year I do and see all those things and places I really want to. Now all I need to do is think of what those things are... ^^'

Argh, what game is it that has the pirate Fudoumine scenario?! I know there's Yamabuki doing the story of Monkey, and Rikkai are supernatural-stype things like vampires, and I seem to recall Shinsengumi Seigaku as well, but I cannot remember where I've seen them! I was sure I had them in my memories but I can't find them all. >.<;; Any help would be *much* appreciated! ^_~ RP people, you already know I have the Fudoumine one. *grin*

Also spent this morning (well... ^^') reading The City, by [livejournal.com profile] yuki_scorpio. Fantastic detective-type story - kind of reminiscent of Infernal Affairs in a way, though it's more about hitmen and the police. Lots of very intricate details, and it actually makes me feel sorry for Sanada. ;_; Pairings include SanaYuki, D1, YanaYuki, but the story isn't finished yet; it's genuinely exciting, so go read it! :D

Have also spent all day (like, literally @_@) listening to Cannabis, by Serge Gainsbourg! It's sampled by Goldie Lookin' Chain in their new single, Your Missus is a Nutter. It's top class work as ever from the GLC, but I was intrigued by the sample, so I looked it up, found the track and man, it's just jaw-droppingly awesome. It's from the soundtrack of a film, and somehow it's so very evocative, in a happy, glam-rock styled way. Download it! Download it now!

You know, I'm so glad I can be using this mood icon. Ironically enough, it's raining and crap outside, and I woke up with the X TV OP in my head, which isn't exactly the cheeriest anime association ever, but somehow I've managed to cling to that waking-up feeling - you know, the bit before you remember you were feeling crap. Go go positive thinking! ^^'

I dreamt about [livejournal.com profile] robojellyfish last night too! Funny, RPing last night helped cheer me up, so thanks babe. ♥

Couple of recs today: one for [livejournal.com profile] trixie_chick's very funny SanaYuki fic, Now. :9 Yukimura is so wicked, but we know Sanada loves it. O:)

Also, anyone interested in PoT might want to check out my Post Secret-type challenge over at [livejournal.com profile] dinosaur_zone! There've been some great responses so far, and hopefully we'll come up with some more! It'd be cool to award some prizes or something for the best ones. :D

I was randomly journal-stalking last night and saw someone mention that Sanada's new single (KEEP GOING ON!) sounds like Puff the Magic Dragon. And it does. He does look pretty suave on the cover though. Yes, I can't resist a man in a suit, I freely admit it! ;)

I have a friend coming over till tomorrow, so I maybe won't be around as much as sometimes, hehe, but I'm sure I'll shoehorn in some interweb time. ;)

Happy birthday, [livejournal.com profile] stardustmajick! :)

Also, fic rec for today! Marvellous ShishiTori fic on a theme that's been done before in multiple fandoms, but that's never a barrier to someone talented making a very fulfilling and enjoyable story out of it. All the characters are very well captured, I thought, and it all fits together very nicely without being overwrought. Read [livejournal.com profile] miko_no_da's The Biggest Mistake of my Life Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Omake.

The sun is shining, we had good log last night, and I think I dreamt about [livejournal.com profile] sublimeparadigm. ^^' It's a good day! And now to leave the house, cos I feel I should, when it's so hot and sunny. Indian summers are a bonus, and I feel I need to make the most of it. ^_~
diamondlife: (Captain Spandex - sonkikyo)
Happy birthday [livejournal.com profile] ninjaiguana!!! Rest assured your cake did not last long after you left the other day. #^^# Although I doubt you'll see this till you get back, hope you have a great day!

...Or what's left of it, as it's now nearly 4pm already. o.O;; I'd wonder where the day went, but then I remember I slept till 1. Had a load of weird dreams, many of them involving toilets, which I'm sure signifies something. In one, I dropped my handbag into one, and had to fish my keys etc out, and that was deeply unpleasant; I also dreamt I was having a miscarriage, and I remember feeling very relieved cos I really didn't want a baby. I had a lot of other dreams, that were all those kind-of real feeling ones, that involve real-looking places and actual things that exist (like my handbag, it was exactly like it really is, which is a bit rare, lol).

I can't believe I didn't rec this fic before. It's Slumber Party, by one of my favourite authors, [livejournal.com profile] crunchy_salad. Basically, Oshitari and Atobe spy on Jirou and Gakuto having a sleepover. It's very funny, and coined a phrase I find very amusing (especially in light of Oshitari's recent match in the manga), u.m.o. - ukes making out. Who doesn't love that? *snicker*

Also, can I be cheeky? I don't suppose anyone has any Rikkai songs they could upload for me, could they? I'm curious! I have Kirihara's It's Alright, but to be honest, it's pretty rubbish - that said, I shouldn't've expected much, bearing in mind the Get Backers songs Morikubo Shoutarou has had a hand in. ^^' Bless 'im, I love him as a seiyuu but he really shouldn't sing.

Justin Langer just got caught! Woo, 129-2! Looking a little better for us now. ^^'

Tomorrow is Kamio's birthday. YOU KNOW WHAT THIS MEANS, [livejournal.com profile] robojellyfish! >:D

Greatest KKM fic EVER. 16 year old Greta needs to find a suitor, but Yuuri doesn't want her to get married. Very funny, and expertly played out. *grin*

Also, you know yesterday I wanted a translation of Sanada's letters to Yukimura, from the latest RajiPuris? Well, [livejournal.com profile] datenshi_blue posted some! They're very cute and fun. *pets Sanada* I hate the word "dork", but there's no other word for it. XD

Got an idea for a cross-dressing-gone-awry fic this morning. Maybe I'll even write it. *adds to the increasingly-long list* To remind myself I'll write the line "Jesus Christ! Will you just - stop - bitching?!" and hope that triggers my memory later...

Also, am applying for a library job back at good old Barnsley College! The only problem is when I'm talking about my employment history - do I count my placement there? Hmm. Ah well, I'm fairly confident I've got everything they want, so I'm going for it.

Today's jobs include:
- Tesco's for shopping and recycling
- cleaning kitchen/general tidying
- WRITING damnit!!!

My wallscroll was shipped today too. *glee*
diamondlife: (SanaYuki - caffeineaddict)
*burbles a little* OK, so I got the other quarter of work done that I meant to... I haven't worked incredibly hard by any means, though, so hopefully if I do, I'll get the main bit revised with relative comfort. Haha, those sound like famous last words to me.

I just *had* to rec some things, though. This is quite possibly the best SanaYuki fic ever, and I wanted to make a note of that right now. (Also for reference, it's by [livejournal.com profile] postingwhore.) Absolutely compelling relationship development - took my breath away. Beautiful.

Got to put a word in for [livejournal.com profile] sublimeparadigm too, specifically for her marvellous ToriShishi fic, of which she's posted three parts so far. Just in case certain fans of that pairing on my friends list hadn't seen it before. ^_~

And finally, some crack. Greatest art ev4h!!! (Warning: don't click if you're mortally afeared of [chibified] mpreg. XD If you don't, though, you're missing out, cos it's hilarious. >D)

And now bed. e_e
diamondlife: (How do I feel? - annaoni)
I'm trying to write my ad for [livejournal.com profile] top_cagnotte, but I'm having real difficulty. Do they want me to list *all* the pairings I *might* write, and all the pairings I *couldn't* do? Cos there are plenty I really don't care enough to do. ^^' I think I'll just pare down the list to the ones I really feel easiest dealing with.

Also want to get rated at [livejournal.com profile] tenipuri_rating. Another complicated questionnaire! *bites nails*

I also gave up on this application form, cos it's too hard! ^^;;Cut to save your list! Job ramblings, guaranteed angst-free! )

Moving onto entirely different matters, I woke up at about 1.30 this afternoon, after going to bed at nearly 6. -_- As I was waking up, though, I was suddenly assailed by images of Atobe wearing that leopard-print coat (which I can't find a pic of right now, darnit) with nothing underneath. Mm, fur coat, no knickers! *snerk* ...I also remember contemplating, quite clearly, how it wouldn't work in an AtoTez fic, but I could really see it going in a SanaAto direction - regreattbly, cos I don't really care for the latter pairing. Then I started reminiscing about the days of MLs, when I'd feel perfectly happy posting something random like that to an ML, but I'd never dream of musing out loud on an LJ comm. People get precious about their friends lists being cluttered; but there's also the thing that (as I noticed last night, LJ-hopping) that PoT people are nostalgic for the heydays of fandom back in ought-four, when meta was discussed and crack and stuff generated randomly. There aren't really *comms* for that kind of thing; people do (or did) it in their own journals, but you don't get to meet new people that way, and you don't feel comfortable taking part if you're not a friend, but just randomly stumble across it. This culminated in me wanting to make a comm, maybe for n00bs like me, and others who might want fresh crack, where we can share all our randomosity and party like it's a year ago. Or something. I've never been one for big meta discussions, and I know they can get wearing when you've read them twenty times before, but I still think it'd be nice to have something like that, where the emphasis is on sparking conversation and sharing the weird thoughts that come to you usually when you're in that honeymoon period with a series. And hey, I know from GW that that honeymoon can last a long time! So it's lonely when other people have got something new; or when you know there are people out there you want to meet, but you don't know where they are! ...So anyway, I wanted to make a comm, but I couldn't think of a name, and I felt my n00bishness too much anyway, so I didn't. I fail.

Um. What was I doing again? Oh, yes, reading a fic. *cough* And in spirit of pimpage I rec something from a few days ago. It's Mizuki, trying to get Fuji to remember who he is. *grin* Mission: Impossible. I once had a BeKami idea like that. *grin*
