Fic Roundup

I'm behind about a year rounding up all my fic. Looking back, I guess my fandom interests have been all of over the place. Also, lol, I wrote fic for the kinda embarrassing swimming!anime that no one cares about anymore.  Granted, I haven't posted much since I moved to Japan, but here we are:

In Need (FFVII, Reeve & Rufus, Turks, Bonus!Yuffie, T)
Reeve, Rufus, and the specter of the city behind them.
AO3 | DW

against the years (Naruto, Shino/Naruto, M)
Years pass, and Naruto can only love Shino more.
AO3 | DW

we all get there eventually (Free!, Sousuke & Haru, G)
Sousuke is rescued when he gets lost on the way to Makoto's birthday party. Tokyo isn't as scary in pairs.
AO3 | DW

Labor of Love (Free!, Makoto, Haru, Rin, Sousuke, G)
Five people who tried to teach Makoto to cook. (Or: Makoto has always been better at taking care of other people than himself.)
AO3 | DW

without subject (Free!, Sousuke, G)
In junior high, Sousuke has to make a self-portrait during art class. He hates it about as much as you'd expect.
AO3 | DW

a touch of memory (FFXV, Monica & Prompto, T)
When the Prince feels Monica up, it’s really just the start of her problems.
Or: Monica switches bodies with that Argentum kid the Prince likes so much and takes the opportunity to gather plenty of intel.
AO3 | DW

The City (FFXV, ensemble, M)
The City across ten years of Scourge. The taint doesn't come from without, but from within.
AO3 | DW

Due (FFXV, Noctis, G)
The Astrals and the Crystal find Noctis worthy. It begs the question.
AO3 | DW

Ghost, (FFXV, Cor/Iris, M *no underage*)
M. E. 762. Cor and Iris's first time isn't exactly what dreams are made of.
AO3 | DW

CPR Clip from the Dutch Red Cross

Too bad the clip is in Dutch, but I guess you can catch the drift when you see it. The Red cross made a clip to get people to learn CPR by asking  the cast of Penoza, which is slang for the criminal underworld in Dutch,  to play a scene.

There are two funny scenes when the woman calls out not to move the victim and the guy just drops him.
And when the AED machine tells them to get professional help and they look at each other and they decide it is better if no police arrivés...

And if you don´t know CPR, please learn, you never know when you may need it!

Risk Everything for Family
by Dialecticdreamer/Sarah Williams
part 4 of 14
word count (story only): 1310

:: Part of the Polychrome Heroics universe, the Mercedes story set, and picks up immediately after “Popping In,” continuing from Graham's viewpoint. ::

“Abioud,” Aidan began, a smile tugging at the corners of his mouth, “would you please keep an eye on Saraphina and Edison while I offer the good doctor a brief magical mystery tour?”

Graham chortled. “That's a description I can get behind!” He held up a finger. “One thing. If Aida offers to spar with you in the salle, I insist that full padding be worn.”

“I'm not much of a fighter, but I know enough not to hurt a teenage girl,” Abioud protested.

“The padding is for you!” Graham countered, still smiling. “Aida is… relentless, even when she's trying to relax. It's just her nature, even when asking you to spar is a gesture of friendship to her. If you don't want to risk it, believe me, I understand. It's perfectly fine to say no If she asks, though, she's likely to be ready to socialize a little more.”

“You have an interesting family,” Aidan mused, laughing softly.

“The longer you associate with us, the more that word will drift toward 'terrifying' instead,” Graham offered, then licked his finger and pretended to check for breezes. “So far, the wind is holding steady at Interesting-by-Weird-Interesting.”

Poem - On A Throne

I was at a dance, feeling separated the other attendees. A friend noticed my condition and asked if I was OK. I begged off, saying I was tired. “On A Throne” is about the experience.

On A Throne

I'm the king of a distant land
adjacent to those of friends
with one difference I'll point out
it’s the spirits I embrace

filled with ghosts all can see
reality for the rest of them
yet they haunt my waking life
too visible yet still not there

hands extended and then felt
by my fellows and my chums
while only breezes touch my skin
when the same tries to caress

intangible to my dismay
tears more real than coddled love
when the veil becomes too sheer
ephemeral becomes the norm

this royalty sits on a throne
alone with only shadows held
phantoms hover close to mind
while the same is near at hand

perhaps in time I’ll step down
join my friends away from spooks
no longer will the visions haunt
enfold the world when spirits bolt.

I stumbled on this and I thought it would be of interest to some people here: a gay Chinese artist who makes erotic paper cuttings (not exactly porn but very NSFW).

Also, fandom charity [community profile] fandomlovespuertorico has opened for bidding, if anyone is interested; the money goes towards long-term rebuilding of Puerto Rico. I am offering to write one longer fic and two shorter fics, but there are also plenty of other awesome writers and artists participating.

The research thing I have to do is inching along; I sent a second draft to my advisor after adding a couple of pages to the introduction like he asked me to, and a couple of faculty members have agreed to be on my mini-committee, but I have yet to hear back from my advisor. Which is understandable, he's a busy person and he's been out a lot lately and has probably yet to catch back up on his email, so I'll give him a few more days before I ping him.

(...I also still haven't received any email from my research group, so not sure what is going on there.)

It is starting to cool off here. I think I might pull up my pepper plants in the next day or two; I don't think I'm going to get any more fruit off them before the frost hits, and to be honest, these plants have been disappointments anyway. I don't know if it was the variety or if I neglected them a little too much or what; they only gave me a couple fruits each at best, and most of them were tiny. Like, I knew the lady who sold them to me said small, but these are 'can literally fit in your mouth in one easy bite' small and not that tasty. (Except for the one long one, which never changed color to ripen.) Next year I'm just getting bell peppers again. The eggplants have been great, and so have the basil. I'm also not getting another lemon mint next year, it turns out I don't like the way it tastes that much - I might replace it with a chocolate mint, that sounds interesting.

I have not made much progress on reading Genji, but that's because three books I preordered are coming out this month. So far, I have finished one (Turtles All the Way Down), am in the middle of another (Soonish), and am waiting on a third (The Writing in the Stone, an ancient Assyrian horror story). Plus I need to do reading for research again. Should go do some of that now before I head to foreign language club.

Dear author,

Welcome to my Dear Author letter for [community profile] holly_poly, wherein I try to give you a snapshot of the kind of stuff I like, and which you are welcome to take as gospel (although I don’t recommend it), consider as guidelines (rather than rules), or simply read as an exercise in curiosity (entirely acceptable).

Describe the best day of your life so far.

It's funny because the best day of my life is probably my wedding day, but I honestly don't remember much of it. I remember my dad walking me down the aisle and seeing the photographer and Kevin, and I remember saying I do, and then the champagne started. I remember thanking Lowell, who owned the restaurant we got married in, and I remember a stuffed cheetah. But... most of it is gone.
