Happy Thanksgiving. :D My family is out Black Friday shopping already. HAHAHA.

So I was sitting here thinking about doing "art", and I decided I wanted to play a cd. And for some reason the thought entered my head that I shouldn't put a cd into my radio/stereo, because it might be too loud and it might wake my grandmother up.

Two huge problems with this.

The first is that she died in 2008.

The second is that I'm living in her apartment.

I have no idea why that thought even crossed my mind. Maybe because it's Thanksgiving and "family time" and all that. I'm not sure. An interesting thought.

--

That said, I've gotten into RPing again. My Tales of Symphonia friend was looking for another buddy to paragraph-RP with via email and after we goofingly RP'd a bit in WoW together, I decided to give it a try.

This reminds me of the good old days having silly fun RPs with [personal profile] amusetache and [personal profile] sain. <3

Except this is even better because it's easier to do via email I think? I don't know. I'm so out of touch with RP. But I did roll a panda monk to RP...or try. She's gonna be an adventurer and stuff... I really want to draw her.

--

Speaking of drawing I am so incredibly bored and I will be up late (and I'm too lazy to do the stuff I should be doing). Anybody have a favorite pokemon I can doodle up for them?

Someone on my RealID on WoW got me hooked on dual-boxing. >> The funny thing is that my "slave" (i.e., Follow) toon is the one that's out DPSing my "Master" (i.e., Lead) toon. What even.

-

I'm cleaning all the things today, focusing mostly on laundry because my closet got full to bursting. Now that my sister is moving her stuff out, that gives me another closet to store my crap, so winter stuff will go in one, while summer+pants/etc will go in the other. My underthings and pajamas barely are fitting in the bureau though, how sad. BUT. LUCKILY. MY SISTER MOVED SO HER BUREAU IS NOW MY BUREAU! (This just occurred to me about two seconds ago.)

-

Tiny is in heat again. I can't wait until I get my compensation check. I don't care if it's just for $100 so long as I can get that cat fixed. She's annoying normally but it gets worse when she's in heat. She spends all day rolling around in my cords knocking my speakers off the desk.

That said, normally she spends her days knocking my ponies off of their shelf. I'll look over and she'll be standing on the bookshelf, her foot sticking all the way out, a sad helpless pony dangling from her claws by its tail.

-

I found a bunch of Pokémon plushies and stuff that a friend gave me. I hadn't even remembered I had them. o_o They were stuffed into this cute little tote bag with a pokéball on it, too. Hee.

-

Cleaning cleaning cleaning cleaning. I have to get this done before next WEDNESDAY because that's when Neal will show up, Wednesday night. Arrgghhhh. I have so much work to do. Sob. Sob. Sob. As soon as I'm done with the clothes I'mma run to the store. Busybusy.

-

I found a cute little meme to rec fic that really "wowed" you so I'll probably do that one later as soon as I can get a huge job off of my checklist.

-

Watching DBZ as I do my laundry (since it's RARRRRRRRRR SPESHUL BEAM CANONZ for like four episodes in a row, if I walk away I probably didn't miss a damn thing), but while I'm playing WoW I'm rewatching Rose of Versailles. I forgot how different the manga is from the anime, geesh, but it's still good!! Episode 8 is my favorite I think, that appears in the anime but not the manga. Episodes 1 and 2 are yawnworthy.

So I was trolling around in the DBZ fandom and suddenly I stopped and I thought, Maaaaan, I remember my dream'fic for this fandom.

You know, that one 'fic you always needed to write. The one you can't forget about. Or two. Or ten. Or twenty. Maybe dream'fics is a better term, but sometimes in older, forgotten/abandoned fandoms, there was just this ONE story that you really wanted to write, to get out there, and you still think about it even if it's been 10 years since you were actually active or known in that fandom.

You know what I'm talking about. You're probably thinking about it right now. SO TELL ME ABOUT IT. And tell me why you've always wanted to write it. I mean, what's the motivation behind wanting to write it? Is there a certain satisfaction you want to feel? And if someone ELSE wrote it, would that make you just as happy?

So my "dream'fics" are:

Dragonball Z: Mirai/Future!fic. Oh man. I always wanted to write a REAL future'fic. Sure, I wrote one, String of Fate-- but for the love of God don't read it. It needs edited. I used the wrong "then/than" in there somewhere. UGH. Either way, the reason I felt I needed to write a future!timeline 'fic was because THERE WERE SO MANY. SO MANY UNFINISHED ONES. And I found that more disappointing than anything, ever. So much potential. Such an interesting playground. I guess the fate of certain characters (coughGohancough) turned away a lot of people, but there's still his life to write about, you know? He fought the Androids for how long? I felt there just needed to be a complete, satisfying-ending 'fic for that timeline. I would be over the moon if someone ELSE wrote this-- cause it would save me so much time.

Pokémon: You guys will laugh me off of LJ/DW for this one: I used to have this huge, sprawling plot written out in a notebook for a 'fic about a 30-something Ash who actually has cancer, and his last wish is to travel around Kanto on his original journey one last time. So silly. But it had the old gang in it and it was fun to think about. I'll probably never write it but I think about it a lot. I also had a nice outline for a 'fic where sometime in the future I think Misty was married and had quit running the Cerulean City Gym, but tbh I don't remember enough about that one to ever pick it up again.

Harry Potter: The werewolf idea, obviously, where Tonks ends up bitten by a werewolf (who isn't Remus). I might yet do this one but it's not an easy story to work on. P: If someone else wrote this I'd be pissed. MY IDEA BITCHES.

Fire Emblem 7: It's a damn three-way tie between The Novelization, All About Us, and and and Another Heart Calls. Dafuq. I think the novelization wins ONLY because I have sooo much damn headcanon that I want to squeeze it all into ONE FIC and make it COHERENT but I doubt I can do that. Sigh. That said, I also have this awful urge to write a Wallace and Vaida epic-- it's even beating out my ridiculous idea for the Merlinus epic. Shut up you know you'd read a Merlinus epic because it's such a stupid idea.

Fire Emblem 8: I have NEVER told anyone this, I don't think, but I wanted to write a semi-novelization alllllllll from limited 3rd POV...in Lute's perspective. YOU KNOW THAT WOULD BE SUCH A TRIP.

Fire Emblem 9/10: Uhmmm Kitty can attest that I spent many hours outlining Stand, a Haar/Jill 'fic that I CAN'T REMEMBER IF I STARTED OR NOT. I think there was another one, too, but for the life of me I can't remember what it was about and I'm not sure why. (I am so tired, ugh.)

Rose of Versailles: Say It's Possible. 88,000 words. Written. 10k posted. I am. So lazy. And I think maybe I should review that 'fic and see if it's as bad as I remember it being. It might have had potential. But it was so hard to balance the idea for it between the manga and the anime. Because Oscar is different in the anime than in the manga. The manga has her all YEAH WHERE ARE MY LOWLY SOLDIERS POPS? And the anime has her going NAW I DO WUT I WANT AND I DUN WANT THE MILITARY. (SPEAKING OF ROSE OF VERSAILLES, [personal profile] forcedsimile, WHERE IS THE REST OF THE OSCAR-WAS-RAISED-AS-A-GIRL FIC?! sob)

And a random assortment:

-I always wanted to write a really great Aoshi/Misao 'fic but I can't seem to accomplish that goal. /fail
-I feel like I should make up for all my shitty InuYasha 'fic by writing something good.
-I am a bad person for never writing Digimon 01/02 'fic despite being a fan. (I EVEN WROTE GILMORE GIRLS FIC. COME THE FUCK ON.)
-The Irresponsible Captain Tylor needs fic. But. I'm always so short on ideas.
-I need to make up for my blunder in the Ranma 1/2 section by writing something good. But someone beat me to the best 'fic in the fandom already. If you want a link I will link it!
-Speaking of making up for incoherent badfic: Dragonball Z.
-SPEAKING OF MAKING UP FOR REALLY SHITTY FIC, TALES OF SYMPHONIA. I admit, Once Upon a Tomato was pretty great, but Take Me Away? Oh my God what a terrible fic. Terrible. Terrible fic. TERRIBLE. FUCKING. TERRIBLE. Oh my God.

also it's not meta month but what the hey.
