[Samurai 7] [Katsushirou/Kirara] Spinning on the Edge #31-35 [bonus themes]

Fandom: Samurai 7
Title: Spinning on the Edge
Theme(s): [#31-35] 31. Cold (~bloody destiny), 32. Black (~sleeping in the red), 33. Kill (~house of pain), 34. Teddy-bear (~demon master), 35. Haha...... (~secret passage)
Pairing/Characters: Katsushirou/Kirara
Rating: K+/whatever
Disclaimer/claimer: S7 belongs to its creators. 31's at the near end, and 35 has spoilers for that one episode in the 20s.
Summary: Thirty ways they broke each others' hearts. Thirty ways their romance was fated to be sad. [KatsushirouKirara]

The five bonus themes at last, which means I'm done. Yay for overkill. Still amazed that I'm finished with all of them, so...yes. Out of all 35, #35 definitely came out the best. It's a one-shot on how and why Katsushirou left home, so if you're not interested in the pairing or angst thing, there's that.

Thanks for the reviews and support along the way, to the reviewers and especially to the beta. :)

( You're dirty and you're sweet/you know you're everything to me )


But yay, first fic I've ever finished. (!!) So yeah. I actually like how I did 35, a little, because I'm weaving that new style of mine in. The weird imagery semi-rhythmic one, you know? So yes. I guess I hope it develops well, but...it'll be a problem for RtV and Half-Life, because...I already started them, and yeah. Damn. But I really am starting to like this style. I mean, when authors do it well...those are my favorite fics. Bad Catholics (House) does this really well. I don't do it to this extent, or to the one of "my december" (D.N.Angel), but yes.

Finished a Detective Conan one-shot which leans more towards that above style, so if anyone wants to help with that, that'd be cool. And I really really really need a Tales of Symphonia beta, so. Oh, and betas for RtV, I really need to hear back from you soon so I can fix up and send the last two chapters and then finally post. I know you're busy, so don't worry about that. XD

Fandom: Samurai 7
Title: Spinning on the Edge
Theme(s): [#26-30] 26. Under your Skin (~surreal reality), 27. Line between Love and Hate (~Dying just for you), 28. Tensai or Baka? (~cause of nature), 29. Fire; Water; Earth; Metal; Wood (~one last dinner), 30. Angsts (~seeing you and the other)
Pairing/Characters: Katsushirou/Kirara
Rating: K+/whatever
Disclaimer/claimer: S7 belongs to its creators. 28 and 29 are at the near-end end, and 30 gives away the end to the love triangle in the series.
Summary: Thirty ways they broke each others' hearts. Thirty ways their romance was fated to be sad. [KatsushirouKirara]

Sorry, though they had been finished for months, I completely lost interest in posting. Completely. BUT, I'm done. Done, done, done. Complete with all 30 claims. :D Hm, I don't think there is a post to reply to for finishing your claim yet, so...hm, yeah.

I'm still going to post the final 5 bonus themes, and so. Major thanks to the beta for helping and pointing out a big detail, and comments are greatly appreciated. Crossposted.

( The end of the road, whoohoo )

The real life stuff will come later, I suppose...I don't want to mention it here.

I was trying to decide whether to post this or the 30 kisses, since that's 4 days away from the 2 month deadline and both are uploaded to ff.net...but then this won, since, you know, this means I've completed the challenge and I like the idea of that more. XD I'll get the 30 kisses up in 2 days or so, so it all works.

I should take up a Detective Conan challenge now, mwahaha. God I want to do Conan/Ai so so badly, but the impossibility of writing one argh. Such is the pain of loving an alternate pairing. (Like Satoshi/Daisuke. Man, if the Harada twins were, you know, interesting, then I wouldn't like S/D. Considering how I'm never into yaoi anyway except with this and Wolfram/Yuuri since they're canon. O.o)

Yay, finals. Last two updates will come slowly. Almost done at last, whoohoo.

Thanks to the awesome beta, and reviews are greatly appreciated. :D Crossposted.

( I'm drowning in your vanity/your laugh is a disease )



Honestly, though, what the heck. The one and only chapter up of Key to Flying has over 340 hits, while the entirety of Spinning only has 560. Four, and now five, chapters. Damnit. I don't know what I'm getting at.

You know, once I've finally made my choice...it's like the world conspires against me to keep myself from, well, making it. Once I said to mom I was considering going, especially since we'd be moving next year anyway to a place that'd be 40-60 mins away from the school each way...yeah, I said I wanted to go (not just for that reason, but you know). And she blew a fuse. And then I thought about science classes here and I definitely wanted to go, and then...we argued again. If my parents want me to stay so much, they should, you know, say it instead.

Whenever I decide "okay, I'm going," I feel...bad. Guilty. Something. And then I go "well, I'll think about it a little bit more." Whenever I decide "okay, why don't I just stay here then!!?", my insides start turning and I start to feel sick. Slightly exaggerated, but true. And I'm stuck again and I was supposed to choose on Friday. Maybe I'll go to school saying I'm going to go, and see what everyone thinks from there. Honestly, I can't do it. I can't.

I feel like everyone hates it when I talk about this. I scare everyone except Patty away from MSN conversations about this topic. I guess this is another sign that I should shut up and sulk to myself quietly while reassuring myself that life sucks, and get over it, you idiot since everyone else has bigger things to deal with so you have no reason to do this? I'm just not strong enough to. Because...I suck.

No way in hell I'll get a short story done by tomorrow, so...I'm good. And done. Done, done, done.

...Did I expect to be this slow in posting? Nah. Things happen. Yeah. Yeeeeeeah. I mean, you know.

( I'm not in denial, I don't think. )

This is the last crosspost. Zomfg fic post. My review count keeps going down and down. It's dejecting. XDDDDD

I'm still not sure about changing my journal to this style, but yeah. And I guess that means I need to delete the writing/art/icons journal, since...that has no purpose anymore. Mrph...or maybe I can just change it to a community, so I can share it with several of you guys in posting fanworks. Mrph. Well, I could delete it and then remake it, just as a community...would anyone be interested? I know Dex was, but yeah. The more the merrier and all that. :D

And I know none of you are into S7, but...oh well. ^^;

Today was better than...the usual. I'll give it that. And I think I'm getting someone into doing themes...along the lines of 30_originals/30_memoirs. More later. Man, I'm on crack.

EDIT: I'm not being paranoid. I swear, China's censors are blocking my access to the NY Times. And I am pissed. Maybe the article title "The Great Chinese Fake-Out" has something to do with it? Man, it's always Maureen Dowd's articles that get blocked. This sucks.
