I may have inhaled the xxxHolic manga this weekend.

Well, mostly today.

So I'm caught up on what's at MangaFox. So...

Fic recs? I think I like everything. Except Clow, I don't care about him. Everyone else cares enough for me.

I am boiling tapioca pearls to make bubble tea.

You only wish you were half as cool as me.

Also, what should I put in my LJ layout? I need something new.

Google is failing me, alas! [Jul. 7th, 2010|08:35 pm]

Waaaay back when, I bookmarked an essay on spiritual power and Buddhism (and possibly Shinto), basically a discussion of how anime priests can still be powerful as hell and be womanizers, gamblers, etc, where Western culture has more of a "Gawain and the Green Knight" lose your purity/lose your power thing going on. Miroku might have been an example.

Is this ringing any bells? To anyone? Bueller?

(In other words, even without this handy resource, my essay on Sanzo's quantum virginity for [community profile] kink_bingo is coming up on 500 words. And I haven't really talked about sex yet. Oops.)

[profile] kenilvort translated my story You'll Never Tan In This Town Again into Russian! How cool is that?

I read not a word of Russian, but IIRC, at least one of y'all do, so enjoy!

[profile] bigbangnitro has pushed its art deadline out a bit, so if you were thinking of vidding/mixing/creating and wanted more time, now you have it!

For those of you in the US, Black Books is up on Hulu. It is pretty amazing. You have to register because it is 'adult' but omg so worth it.

And I am currently messing around with some of the games at Sawbuck Gamer, a feature at the AV Club that features cheap and usually free games.

I had something else but I forgot it. I am woring on an FST, though. Whee, music!

[profile] satorias asked for good fanfiction, and I have found some wonderful stuff, folks.

The Mutant Problem, X-verse interactive fanfiction. It's set up as a piece Peter Parker wrote for The New York Times.

And some amazing cracked-out Star Trek: Reboot crossovers.

AND an Alien universe epistolary story.

Also, someone is trying to remember a TMNT fanfic and I swear I remember it too. HELP.

Today is not that day. On the upside, my victim lucky mixer for [info]apocabigbang now has over 11K of fic to plow through. And I think I'm going to post a Weiss story tomorrow that's essentially been finished for months 'cause it's close the fuck enough.

If you're thinking of signing up for Remix and you write Naruto, chime in over here, please! (As long as you qualify.) And btw, you should totally be thinking of signing up for Remix; it's awesome.

Go read Asian Women Blog Carnival #5: who i am when i'm (not) with you. I've read some amazing stuff so far.

An analysis of all the ways Google Buzz went wrong. Also awesome.

And last but not least, a question for AO3 users and readers-- if you, like me, had a series of stories that could be read in chronological order, but were not particularly bound to that-- like, say, the Ran-verse-- would you post it as a chaptered fic, or related stories, or...what? Any ideas/recommendations?

More Haitian relief: Ben from These Are Our Games is donating all profits from PDF sales to Haiti. [info]i_the_fangirl says they're good games, and they look pretty cool.

And look, I like Google. I enjoy many of Google's projects. But the front page of a PDF you download on Google books basically has a paragraph that says 'look at how awesome we are. We're SO AWESOME.' I am not sure this is necessary, Google.

And last but not least, I have a question for my all-knowing flist, as I know some of you know Chinese: if I name a Chinese-American brother and sister Shen and Li Ying, am I doing anything stupid? THESE BABY NAME WEBSITES ONLY GO SO FAR. My favorite ones are the 'find X ethnicity names for your kids or pets!' BECAUSE THOSE ARE OBVS JUST THE SAME.

What does Chuck (the prophet/writer) drive? It's a truck, isn't it? I have the episode but can't get to it at the moment.

I am poking around at Archive of Our Own! It is quite fun. I am attempting to not fart around and avoid writing by doing this. I am not having quite as much luck with that.

A few questions:

Is anyone but me having trouble setting a rating when they're uploading existing work? If it's just me I don't want to bug them.

How are people handling multipart works that aren't necessarily in sequence? Just thinking of figuring out hot to link up the Ran-verse is making me cringe.

xxxHolic is making me cry. Dammit.

Should I check out the manga? I have enjoyed the anime so far, but am suspicious of CLAMP's tendency toward chaos.

Also, LJ was a jerk and wouldn't let me list off 100 female characters I absolutely freakin' love, so it's over on DW.

All I wanna do is write fluff and I have to think and stuff.

What's the best way to do footnotes in LJ, minions friends?

Anyone around to look over a short (1K or so) Gwendal/Yozak UST fic?

A Tales of the Abyss question I'm sure someone here might be able to answer. Don't let me down!

Also, does anyone have Heroes Come Back from the OP of Naruto Shippuden? Because I miss it. The next OP is just not as good.

Am working on those mini-mixes again that I promised back before Christmas, lolz. Also my [info]ship_manifesto, and I'm toying with some [info]kink_bingo ideas. PLUS A FEW SECRET PROJECTS THAT WILL NOT BE NAMED.

[info]metafandom is making me want to write a long YOU IDIOTS SHOULD CHECK OUT SOMETHING OTHER THAN LIVE ACTION TV IF YOU DON'T LIKE YOUR MEDIA CHOICES post, but I suspect the urge will pass. But if I do it, there will definitely be a link to the Tv Tropes page on women in refrigerators. (Notice I didn't link. You're welcome.)

Has it ever been established whether or not half-Mazoku kids can father kids?

God, I never get sick of this icon.

[info]mayatawi is having a very specific problem with Biblical verse citations. I know there are people I know who can help, so...help?

I wrote moar Gwendal/Yozak. Or perhaps Yozak/Gwendal.

And I wish I'd written something as lovely as this. Yami, Wakaba/Terazuma.
