I finished grad school and I'm now a gainfully employed librarian - woo! In the spirit of getting my life back on track, I created a new blog to hold all my fanfiction. Not only did I really want to get my work back online, I also wanted to have a place to put new stuff too, so I think this is a good solution.
Anyways, here is the link: http://erisabesufic.wordpress.com/
Hope you all are well!
For now I wanted to share with you the Anthology project that fireun and muffins_of_god are putting together. It is called "Fight Like A Girl" and will contain original short stories in the fantasy genre by many talented writers. I am so excited to be one of the contributors! And so I am promoting the project here. :)
The Anthology is being funded through Kickstarter, and the link is here: Fight Like A Girl
$15 gets you the anthology. That's 20 stories worth of kick-ass fantasy! Organized, produced, and distributed by authors. Sounds cool, right?
I am also pleased to be part of the last stretch goal! If we can get to $12,300 I will be sharing a second story about girls fighting zombies. We are very close! Four days left!
We are very excited about this project and would love to have your support! Thank you for reading my excited ramblings! ;D
My writing website is back up! I finally figured out what I was doing wrong with uploading content to my new host. :) A few things still need to be adjusted, but for the most part it's up and running and everything looks okay.
My kittens are doing great! They are the happiest part of my life right now. ♥ Shinobu, my girly, watches my every move and gets jealous whenever I'm at the computer, lol. Raizou loves to be carried everywhere, and is so calm in my arms or perched on my shoulders. Mittsu is my lap kitten who cuddles every chance he gets, and sleeps every night between my feet.
( picture!Collapse )
Graduate school is still going well, despite my crazy schedule. I'm attending a state conference in a few weeks and a national conference in June. The student registration fees are super cheap, so I'm trying to get as many conferences in while I can. I did not get the internship I applied for, sadly, but I'm hopeful about the scholarships I've applied for and I think I'll find out next week whether I was chosen or not.
I miss my awesome LJ friends! I'm a few weeks behind on manga chapters but I'm trying my best to keep as current as possible. :) What are you all reading/watching right now that has really got you fired up?
Have a great day!
02. Grad school is a LOT of reading so far. A LOT. The hardest part so far has been figuring out how to manage all my schoolwork while also working full time--it has been pretty exhausting! The funnest part has been getting school supplies to organize all my printouts and stuff. Whee! :3
03. I've been doing pretty well at keeping up with favorite manga series. Enjoying the war in Naruto more than I thought I would. I'm anticipating good things coming down the pike. Also getting really excited about the latest arc in Hitman Reborn! I have aaaaaaaalways wanted to know more about CEDEF, and Iemitsu, so I hope we get to meet the rest of the spicy subordinates very soon. 8D
04. My kittens have become cats, I just have to accept this, lol. ^^ I have a dog crate cushion/bed on my desk that leaves me very little room for studying, but lets the three of them sleep in a pile together. Will post a picture next chance I get. ♥
05. That is all! Hope everyone is doing super well!
Characters: Naruto + others

My Beloved Nini

"Death leaves a heartache no one can heal
Love leaves a memory no one can steal."
Grief is an individual thing, and for me what is helping the most right now is gathering up photos for a memory album. I've put a few pictures of Nini and her sister Ming here under the cut as a small tribute.
I will reply to comments as soon as I can properly pull myself together. Hope all of you are well. ♥

"Hibari tightens his grip, having pinned Yamamoto to the floor in a particularly painful Judo hold, the one he reserves for opponents with long legs."
» "Get Your Coffee Hot" [Naruto -- Asuma/Shikamaru // PG]
"Asuma takes the job at a fastfood pit-stop running the graveyard shift so he can smoke while working the hot grill, ashing right on the floor."

Please excuse any errors or inconsistencies, lol, as we were up very late and high on junk food while writing this. XD Without further ado, please enjoy. ♥
» "Unblemished" [Naruto -- Kakashi, Neji, Genma // Gen]
"Surely it makes more sense to move under cover of darkness."

More drabbles on the way!
From the community profile:
In the spirit of the relief community help_haiti, set up to aid victims of the Haitian earthquake earlier this year, gulf_aid_now is a LiveJournal-driven auction geared toward providing monetary relief for those affected by the Deepwater Horizon oil well failure and the failure of its operating company, BP.
To support relief efforts, I'm auctioning off a fanfic of 1000+ words, wth a starting bid at $1. (Many fandom choices, plus any genre/any rating.) :D
Let's make a difference! \o/
Title: "This Won't Hurt A Bit"
Characters/Pairings: KHR - Kusakabe, Dino
"Kusakabe Tetsuya is mistrustful of all beautiful things..."
I had to work today, and last night I had insomnia for whatever weirdo reason and only slept about 4 hours before having to get up and get ready and hightail it across town. So while it was pretty chill at the library, I found I really was too sleep deprived to focus very well either on my reading projects or my writing projects. The solution for how to entertain myself? Ahahahaha--composing wacky haiku poetry of course! \8D/
I figured it was worth posting even the crappy ones for the sake of lulz. ♥ Disclaimer--none of these have the proper seasonal references or anything a serious haiku is supposed to have. In fact, these are probably only loosely related to haiku; I certainly am not aiming to disrespect the beauty of true haiku, lol. ^^ But I hope you enjoy them anyways. XD
( These two began the experiment...Collapse )
( And then my OTP love kicked in and the rest are all Yamamoto/Hibari or Hibari/Yamamoto, 8018/1880. ♥ ♥ ♥Collapse )
/ridiculousness ;3 Going gaily off to bed now! <333
Dearest Questy, even though this was probably not what you were expecting, I hope you had a good time reading. <33333
Title: "It's Genetic"
Characters/Pairings: Squalo/Yamamoto (S80)
Summary: "It takes nine long years of blood and sweat to bring the two of them here to this point..."
Please enjoy! And do check out the other gifts on oh_shit_santa, because they are pure GOLD. In fact, they're so good I'm still flailing in front of the comment boxes, lol.
I picked this wordcount meme I've seen going around, which seems to be a great way to list and then tabulate evidence into a digestible format, lol. Arranged in descending order by date, or newest first.
( Onward to the memeCollapse )
My Naruto work this past year has been highly experimental, and I had a blast! This was also my first year writing for Reborn, and I would say it's safe to expect more Reborn fics in future. ♥ Some other fandoms slipped in there randomly, and you know what I learned? That it's okay to feed your writing urges, lol. XD I'm also going to be working on original fiction as well, so it's going to be a busy mix from here on out. *excited*
I'm fired up that I was able to be so productive in 2009, and I hope to continue being so focused in 2010 (especially with all the WIP's I have in my draft folder, haha). I have a lot of writing goals to accomplish this year, so we'll see come January 2011 how well I did, yeah? Should be entertaining nonetheless. ;D
