'Nother SP bit

Don't know why I like this scene so much but I do. Inuyasha doesn't have much luck this chapter, but I like all the bits about him. (I don't think I'm a closet masochist...)

A motley group of men cautiously approached the immobile, red-clad form they’d just taken down, staring warily.Collapse )

Shrine Prostitute mini-update

Plugging along on the newest chapter, which is coming along decently. So, to keep myself motivated, here's the next completed scene:

short one this timeCollapse )

Next one coming soon!

Since it takes me forever to get out new chapters of Shrine Prostitute anymore, I figure I'll post tidbits here as I 'finish' them (because nothing is truly done until it's 'published' on one of the fiction sites, and even then I continue to tweak forever). I figure this way I'll feel like I'm accomplishing something though, as opposed to sitting on a 40 page chapter for ages because it needs to be edited like crazy and have some connecting scenes added. Who knows, the two people who are still around on LJ might be vaguely interested, lol.

Chapter 29: AccelerationCollapse )

That's all for now. I'll pop my head up again in another couple months, lol.

Shrine Prostitute update

Nope, not dead. I just moonlight sometimes.

New chapter links!
Chapter 28: Dis/Connection

Not the best chapter ever, I admit, but at least it's out there so I can move on.

I had a freakish scare though - I went to go read everything I've already written for the next chapter (which was written ages ago, so most of it is just vague recollection) and I couldn't find it. I switched to using dropbox a while ago since I work on so many different computers, and somehow the notes I have for chapter 30 would up in the saved docs for both 29 and 30. Cue panic. Then I finally remembered that this was probably back when I still was mainly using google docs (still like it, especially the sharing, but I don't like having to change my format for it). Then my phone outright refused to let me sign in to it. Le sigh. Once I finally got on another device I check and lo and behold...there it is! I didn't have a chance to scan through all of it, but from what I've seen at least most of it is there - plus plenty of parts I hadn't even remembered about. Huzzah! 26 pages. I'm so glad that wasn't lost forever.

With that much partially done here's hoping it be quite as long for the next update, right?

Now on to randomness:
Here's a tiny snippet I cut from the chapter. For some reason I really like it, but it just didn't feel right, didn't mesh. So here, have three extra sentences.

"I'm sorry honey," she (Mrs. Higurashi) said, moving closer to put her hand on her shoulder. "I know how you feel."

“No you don’t,” Kagome sniffed. Her hand rose to wipe at her nose. “Not like this. Dad didn’t choose to leave.”

There was also never the possibility that he might one day return, or that he was living freely somewhere beyond anyone’s control. She thought it but kept it to herself. Such words would do no good here.

Well that's all I got for today. Catch ya'll later.

oh shit zura

light at the end of the tunnel

I am so close to actually finally hopefully being finished with the next chapter of Shrine Prostitute. One last scene to rewrite (again) because I decided it needs to take place in a different location so it's not so creepy. Then one final read through/edit and I'm done! Holy cow but I don't think I've ever rewritten things so much in my life. I lost count of how many times this has been rewritten. But I'm at my wits end, I'm done with this chapter. After this one scene is redone I'm out. I can't waste any more effort on this stupid chapter that's mostly just filler anyhow. Le sigh. I just hope it's not the crap that everyone who read it up to this point thought it was, lol.

something i said?


I have, no joke, at least 9 different rough drafts of the new fic I'm working on. And I wonder why I'm not getting anywhere with my writing, lol. Everything I put down is just going in circles!

~ ~ ~

On another note, I have really random thoughts sometimes. Last night I was thinking about human cloning and all its implications. If ever given the chance to make a clone (only adults would have the right to do this in this hypothetical scenario) I don't think I would. We always think of the benefits - doing many things at once, trying different lives, etc. Even with all those utterly interesting and philosophical bents, that I would find fascinating, I think it would just weird me out too much.

However, I think it'd be a great way to gauge the implications of the nature vs. nurture debate. I know that I would be a much different person if I'd continued living in a small town instead of moving to a large city. Things like that have always made me wonder the kind of person I could have been, and cloning would just be physical confirmation of this potential.

What really struck me, though, is the concept of sexuality. Would it be possible for the original person to be heterosexual, but the clone to come to the conclusion that he/she is homosexual, or the reverse? If not possible, would it be proof for nature over nurture? If it was possible, proof for nurture? Because while many say they're born that way, I'm sure we've all also known people of a different nature who are curious, trying it on, and claim to be gay, only to change back in a year. Makes me wonder about the nature of sexuality itself, and how fluid and in flux it is. Who knows. But it'd be remarkable to have a more empirical way of creating a basis of comparison.

Yes, this is the kind of stuff I think about. I know I'm weird. Whatev.

oh shit zura

Because I totally need more ships/distractions

I read a single oneshot and I think I've fallen in love with the crackship that is SasuHina.

I'm pretty sure I should be afraid.

Writing woes

I'm starting a new story that has been in my head for years, seriously, YEARS, but I find myself doing the same old thing where I just want to skip ahead to the good stuff. I'd forgotten how much arduous setup there is necessary to put in at the beginning of a multi-chaptered fic. Le sigh. Oh the horrid trials of authorship, haha.

KakaSaku Lyricfic

Written for a contest over at the kakasaku community here on LJ. This one was a lyrics contest, where you're assigned a song and use that as your prompt. Mine was 'Chinese Burn' by Curve. Like the song, kinda hated the lyrics at first, but eventually a spark lit and it worked. And of course, as always with me, this has grown out of proportion. Was going to be a 12-20 page oneshot, and now it's going to be just a weeeee bit longer than that, lol.

This also feels like a departure from stuff I typically write. Maybe that's just in my head, who knows, but there is, erm, interesting stuff ahead (Part II or III?) so we'll see how it goes. ^^

So here is Part I, dedicated to tiuni for sending me lovely notes and getting me back in the groove for writing KakaSaku funness.

Part UnoCollapse )

The crazies are back

Apparently my ex-brother-in-law is going around accusing me of being a psychotic drug-addict. (Because one of my sisters is one. And it doesn't matter that I've always been the only level-headed one in the family, the only rather un-emotional one, for which I actually get made fun of for, or that I'm level-headed, but because there's one, there must be two! Haha!) Which is one of the many reasons I'm a horrid human being and shouldn't be allowed to be around his children (because I'm trying to help de-program them from the crazy he's put into them). And he was nice enough to send me an email outlining this, amongst many other things. Wasn't that kind? I don't want to be hurt by this, because I know that was at least part of his intent, but I just can't help it.

Man, I need a vacation from my family.
