FE10 - Mia
I posted this yesterday but I was really, really tired when I finished (and er maybe a little late re: early hours of the morning) and I didn't want to crosspost a crappy piece all around. Still unbetaed, and tweaked here and there...still not entirely happy with it but I can make editing a never-ending process, oh yes.

Title: the simple arithmetic of lives in function
Fandom: Fire Emblem 10
Rating: PG
Length: 1,460 words, one shot
Character/Pairing: Elincia-centric, sort of Ike/Elincia maybe-ish.
Prompts: Written for 31_days, February 6, 2009: the mathematics of forgetting.
Warnings: Spoilers for the ending? Brain-dead crap writing? I'm going to edit this I swear D8
Summary: It’s one little thing at a time. It’s one big picture overall. Written for 31_days, February 6, 2009: the mathematics of forgetting.

( One day, he's gone. )

.....................To be filled in tomorrow, etc etc oh god I'm tired.

Okay, yes. The theme really grabbed me, and then I realized in dismay that I didn’t have enough time to write it and really flesh it out. But…yeah, ah well. Stuff happens.
Mai - bluer than his eyes
Title: sunsets in your gone goodbye
Fandom: Ghost Hunt
Rating: PG
Length: 2,600 words, one shot
Character/Pairing: Naru-centric, Gene, Mai, Madoka, Lin, and everyone else.
Prompts: Written for 31_days, January 26, 2009: sine qua non (not one without the other).
Warnings: Post novels. Basically spoilers past the anime and manga, so...yeah, that stuff. If you don't know Gene, I recommend you don't read this - it won't make sense, anyway.
Summary: They may have had the same face, but he had never been unsure of who he was.

( He always expected he’d find the lake one day. Always. )

I think I’ve been trying to write this…for months. Ever since last summer, probably. I blame this entirely on the difficulty of pinning Naru’s voice with my style, as the two aren’t really compatible. 8D

Either way I definitely rushed this for the theme, so I feel like chunks are missing here and there – these sorts of fics usually need a lot of time to develop. Buuuut if all things go to plan I’ll write a multipart that comes after this, so…we’ll see.

And…this hasn’t been beta’ed, so er. Yeeees. All mistakes are whoops, comments and critique are adored, etc etc brain fried need to study and sleep, sob.
Rin
Title: your cross of jewels bathed in gold
Fandom: Fate/Stay Night
Rating: PG
Length: 4,351 words, one shot
Character/Pairing: Shirou/Rin, some Shirou/Saber, mentions of ensemble
Prompts: Written for 31_days, October 24, 2008: once more, with feeling.
Warnings: Post-series, animeverse. Was too lazy to incorporate the gameverse aside from Rin’s leaving, yeah.
Summary: It takes more than years to heal. It takes more than moving on from the past.

( I’m not in the past. I’m not your mere memory. I’ll never let you forget it. )

I’m a bit brain dead and hanging out with crazy people right now so I can’t really think of a decent author’s note but uhm hm. I meant for it to be more Shirou/Rin than it turned out to be, but hey pairings whatever, so yeah. Why isn’t Shirou/Rin more popular? Or am I just looking in all the wrong places?

Anyway, uhm, comments and critiques are loved, thanks to rae00 for the amazing, quick beta, and hope you enjoyed etc. :D
FE10 - Elincia
Another update so soon? Don't worry, it'll never happen again. Luckily for you guys. 8D And phew...seven months, and this is finally done, done, done. Yeah, so maybe I 1) love Elincia too much and 2) twist the characters into probably angsty, canon-defying versions in my head. My head’s funny like that. And I kinda like my pairings to happen one way or another. 8D

And in the meantime: holy damn, planning so many multiparts. 8D I'll just make it a promise right now: the Ghost Hunt one will be written once I get that last piece of research, and the Gundam S/D one is looking to be highly likely. (There, Rae. -_-)

Title: and the queen calls checkmate
Fandom: Fire Emblem 10: Radiant Dawn / Akatsuki no Megane, a bit of overlap with FE9 as well
Rating: PG
Length: a billion approx. 7,339 words, technically a one-shot, also technically part 2 of 3. This could be considered the second part of a trilogy – Princesses aren’t supposed to love mercenaries technically fits as the beginning, seeing as my extrapolation didn’t really break FE10 canon. The end of it just overlaps with the beginning of this one.
Character/Pairing: Elincia-centric, hints of Ike/Elincia and kinda sorta Geoffrey/Elincia, appearances of Lucia, Ludveck, and really just everyone from Part II
Warnings: Major borrowing of game script sections, and spoilers for all of FE10 Part II and the bare beginning of Part III.
Summary: There is no such thing as a naïve ruler, no matter how she seems; never once was she unaware of how it all came crashing down.

( This is not their happily ever after. This is not the epilogue after winning the war and saving the realm. )

I believe this fic was a seven-month odyssey that I kept adding to and subtracting from before I finally got the game script in its entirety to the end of Part II and finalized this entire thing.

I admit, I’m not wholly happy. My writing style had been shaken by the roots in the middle of these seven months, so I feel like there’s a mix in this that I wish wasn’t there. But ah well. And yes, there will be one final story in this trilogy of sorts that starts somewhere in Part III/IV and ends after the epilogue. It will be Ike/Elincia with some Geoffrey/Elincia. It will probably be more Ike-centric, but through Elincia’s eyes. This time, I’m going to keep out as much of the game script as I can. Just a heads up about that.

I can be spared the grammar-related lectures (ahaha…I guess I don’t like rules, what can I say?), but comments and critiques are adored and loved. :) And a major, major thanks to Rae for sitting through the entire thing and dealing patiently with my laments and getting brain breakage from this.
Ravi - l i g h t down
Seventh icon post. I...think I'm really bad at updating or posting, considering that school ended maybe two or three months ago. I've just had a lot on my mind and my veritable plate, I guess. A zillion icons this time that have been building up for several months - you might've seen the manga_battle ones. And for those, since I made icons for so many different fandoms and they're mostly in order of submission in the table, hover to see who/what's in the icon.

And as the battle icons painfully show, I suck at grayscale. I never want to touch it again. D8

Things to remember:
- credit, please
- comments, love you forever
- no to alterations, but yes to requests
- hotlinking kills my bandwidth ded, so please to be not doing that and thanks.
- want to archive? request first.
- enjoy!

we took a walk that night, but it wasn't the same / we had a fight on the promenade out in the rainCollapse )

{resources/awards post HERE. and don't forget, comments are love. credit is great.}

No tutorial requests for lims icons due to their typical messiness and nonsensicality, but feel free to ask for the others. Then we'll see if I have time/remember. 8D
Hei/Yin
Because I'm awake when I shouldn't be and I'm pondering whether bringing my ginormous tablet (sensor area is 9x12 inches, sob) will cause it to break in my luggage (sob sob) and whether I should just jam it in my backpack even though I won't be able to zip it up then (sob sob sob). And because I really don't feel like playing "let's see if I can get out the door on time and not miss the plane!" tomorrow morning.

And on a side note, wow it's been a while 8D

Title: things we once had to hold
Fandom: Darker than BLACK
Rating: PG
Length: approx. 1,829 words, one shot
Character/Pairing: Hei- and Yin-centric, slight hints of Hei/Yin, Hei/Amber
Prompts: Written for 31_days, June 23, 2008: some girls were just meant to smile.
Warnings: No spoilers. References to eps 13-14 and 25.
Summary: Nothing you do needs to be for anyone other than you, he says. Maybe one day he’ll take his own advice. Post-series.

( ’It doesn’t work to have someone else shape your face into the expressions you want.’ )

First of all, for those who know me: Holy, not many parenthesis, not present tense! Yeah, uhm, pretty much. It’s the first time in a long time that I’ve gone and written something…vaguely normal. Ish. Yeah. Warmup for the larger multipart project, I guess. This was a bit difficult, since writing Yin is a long struggle, especially since post-series gives her character room to change and evolve, but then it’s hard to gauge how much is too much. Frgh.

Anyway, comments and critiques are great, and thanks to Rae for the beta :D
Chase
Sixth icon post. Ahahaha...uhmm, I think I last posted maybe 4 months ago. Or something. Yes, IB melts brains and sucks up time, but thankfully it's almost over...three months, sigh. Most of these were for lims that ended months and months ago, except for the Dark Angel ones, so you might've seen them around.

A tutorial for 41 and 42 is here. As for the others, it really depends on the icons' messiness and if I have any time to make them - last time it took me two months to meet a request, so...yeeees. Probably no tutorial requests for lims icons due to said messiness, though. D:
Max - she has no tears
I...need some FE7 icons, don't I. 8D And, er, I really shouldn't have spent so much time on this because EE but noooo and oh dear god, my eyes are going to burn tomorrow too.

Hey, I haven't written fic in a while. Wow. Yeah, okay, moving on. I really, really meant to post icons before another fic ever came out, but...uhm, later, yes.

Title: oceans take you in
Fandom: Fire Emblem 7: Rekka no Ken / Blazing Sword
Rating: K/PG
Length: approx. 3,252 words, one shot
Character/Pairing: Heath/Priscilla, Raven
Prompts: Written for 31_days, February 13, 2008: That time may cease and midnight never come.
Warnings: Loaded with liberal sprinklings of their support conversations. I never said I was original. References to the Raven-Priscilla and Oswin-Priscilla ones as well. This goes up to the endgame, but there aren't any spoilers for the direct storyline.
Summary: Dear little girl, protect what you will. You can’t stop the tide.

( promises have always been emptier than words; people never seem to know how it works. )

When I realized that all the themes this month were from, well, Marlowe, yeah. But then I picked a line or two, and out came this. Amazing what a deadline does for a muse.

I…sort of rushed this, because I have massive papers due that I should be revising and. Stuff. I’m surprised that I wrote a Heath/Priscilla, really, because Kent/Lyn’s more my calling and I haven’t tried that yet. But hey, always another freer month. So I'm not exactly happy with this because I wish I had another day, but oh well. I can edit later.

Comments are adored, and major thanks to Rae for editing the first jumble of 1800 words, and if you catch any mistakes, that’d be my fault because I completely rushed this to meet the deadline, haha.
Naoto - cold shoulder
Sorry, long break, and I completely, completely forgot to post this for a request. But uh, icon post coming this week. Depending on when I get my essays done and stuff.

Requested by frappetique.

How to make from .

I can feel your heart in motionCollapse )

Hope this was helpful. :D And I’d end with the standard “please don’t copy this tutorial exactly” message, but it might be hard with the technique I use here anyway. XD
Genis - against the western wind
Fifth icon post. Sorry for the wait, life's just been crazy and a lot of my icons have been for lims/battle lims. I was also waiting for some of the voting periods to end so I could post this. But at least there's a bit more variety in the fandoms this time? 8D Most of these were for icontests or lims, so you might've seen them around. And sorry for the overload of variations in this batch. :\
