As some of you might recall, I volunteered some time at a girls school in Nepal back in October last year.

There's been a pretty devastating earthquake - the worst they've had since 1934, but I've gotten confirmation today that all of the girls at the school are fine and not in any immediate danger (though they have been affected), and their main contact in Kathmandu is also ok, but we've been unable to make direct contact since communication is very difficult at the moment. In particular with their contact who we haven't been able to speak directly too - he's doing recovery work around some of the orphanages he helps manage our indirect contact hasn't been able to get an update on their status. I haven't yet heard back from the tour guide that took us around. /o\

If it's feasible, please consider donating to your preferred charity who's helping in the recovery process - Nepal is a very poor country even before being devastated by a 7.4 earthquake.

Save the Children

UNICEF

Canadian Red Cross

British Red Cross

American Red Cross

CARE

Mercy Corps

The last one, I know are definitely already on the site and are doing good work. (They were the one that was recommended to me by  by the American sister school, to the Nepal one we volunteered at.

Making Anzac biscuits today. The regular recipe, because we have uncontaminated oats and we haven't had the oat ones for years. For those of you who've never made your own and only eaten shop-bought - you're missing out. For those of you who don't live in the Antipodes and have never had them - you need them in your life. They're super easy to make and delicious. I have two recipes - one regular, one gluten free - up HERE. It took us ten minutes tops from grabbing ingredients to putting a tray in the oven to bake.

*

It's cold, and we have no fire because everything is wet outside, so there's no point trying to collect kindling. We're making do with woollens and our tiny heater.

*

Reading a bunch of fic and enjoying it. Still pretty happy about Age of Ultron. Haven't seen Daredevil yet.

Sitting in the armchair because Emma's needed the couch the last few days. Felt a little movement on my shoulder and looked over to see one of our resident mice sitting on it, before it vanished. I'm not afraid of mice, fortunately.

AUTHOR LINK: [archiveofourown.org profile] owlet
RATING/WARNING(S): PG-13
WIP?/WORD COUNT: series [two complete stories posted so far] | ~ 87,000 words
MAIN CHARACTERS: Bucky Barnes; Steve Rogers, team

FIC SUMMARY: The mission resets abruptly, from objective: kill to objective: protect.

RECCER'S NOTES:

There are two complete stories posted so far. You could read only one or the other, but it works better together. While there could be more, each story has an clear ending.

The first one depicts Bucky's reclamtion of himself from the Winter Soldier. I love how this is depicted, how it wars inside of him. Love also the humor that is spread throughout the story. It's hard work for him, so the humor is very much appreciated. He has some help though, the OCs are great!

The second story deals with Bucky's integration into the team. I love how he learns to connect with each of them, each in their own way.

Why this piece is awesome: Like the other work of Frank on stage that I recced earlier this month, this one is full of energy. It's less aggressive and more colourful but the feeling of boundless energy and movement is the same. It's the main requirement for depicting Frank performing it seems.

 Dear Not Prime Time Writer!

Hi, hi! I'm super excited for the challenge! All of these series are ones that I love and I'm looking forward to seeing the results! :D I know that I tend to get a little overly wordy when I'm excited, but please know that I'm fairly easy going most of the time, so feel free to play loose with the prompts, I want you to have fun if possible writing your fic!! The only things I really don't want are - I really don't want any underage fic nor do I want any character bashing. If your the sort who prefers to know more about the letter writer's preferences - I've made a more detailed list over here.

Cheers

    Summary
    I decided to go with Himuro because he’s been on my brain a lot of late. But if you get stuck, you can use the prompts I wrote up about Kuroko, Kiyoshi, Alex & Nijimura over here as a back up - http://qem-chibati.dreamwidth.org/169343.html - As I’d much rather you have fun during the writing process!!!
    I’ve completed the main manga series, and behind of the jump special chapters and am very sporadic with the extra materials in regards to spoilers.
    I would prefer gen or slash for Himuro please.

    http://violinic.tumblr.com/post/116053463125/himuro-becomes-curious-about-a-photo-sticker
    *_________* I can’t stop thinking about the sticker photo and story behind it in this translation here. What other memories may Himuro have built up with Mibuchi, what kind of feeling would be given if others in Kuroko no Basuke stumble across it! And oooooh! I love the idea of Himuro building up a sticker collection with other characters - although that’s probably a complete story on it’s own how it came about.

    + there’s also the expansion of other cultural differences Himuro may have encountered between LA and Tokyo. (If you wanted to explore that more seriously, completely separate from the sticker machine that’s AOK with me!)
    On the topic of cultural differences, maybe explore how things go about for him at school? He seems to have built up rapport with his team rather quickly. I enjoy him and Murasakibara being friends or something more. :D

    Or you could also play around with his relationship with Nijimura! According to the novels ( http://kuroko-no-basket.dreamwidth.org/26387.html ) on the first day they met, they stop a kidnapping. Just imagine what other potential mishaps these two can get into! :D I also think they can also have a lot in common with being overshadowed by younger players that they helped teach.
    Finally, I love the relationship he shares with Kagami, and the way both of them are obviously super important to each other. Playing around with that in fun (bro jobs!) or more serious ways would be very enjoyable to me. (Although if it’s with Kagami - happy ending please!!!!)

    Summary
    Series wise - I fail and have never read the manga or novels for Kyou Kara Maou, and although I finished the main series I don’t think I’ve seen the ova’s either. /o\
    Murata!!!!! I love Murata quite a bit from this series. In regards to shipping, gen is good & I particularly ship him with the Shibuya’s (either Yuuri or his brother Shouri), although I don’t mind if you wanted to explore something else.
    I loved Murata from the moment I first saw him on screen. There was just something about the way that he made eye contact with Yuuri that made my heart go pitter patter. And the way that he came back to rescue Yuuri in a thought out kind of way made me happy - and then when we got to see the baseball stuff, at that point I really hoped that we would get to see lots of Yuuri & Murata being friends in the normal world kind of filler episodes. And ended up being delighted when it ended up going a completely different direction with Murata’s role in the series! (If you wanted to normal world friendship shenanigans though… :D? :D? :D?)
    You see, reincarnated characters with memories of their past are like catnip to me. Catnip. And the way that Murata has mysterious knowledge and tension with so many characters is *________* I love that he has a dark background but largely chooses to surpass it and try to stay positive in his life.
    I super, super love the way that he baits Shiori and how they are all brother of my friend, and friend of my brother.
    (And since I covered the topic of cats - Murata with cat ears is an image which just. *does things* to me, so if you wanted to play around with that idea - I guarantee it would make me super happy.)

    Summary

    I am happy to receive fic on either of these characters it doesn't have to be both. (The canon I know best is scanlations/fansubbing, but I'm ok if you use the translated names too, I've read / watched some of the canon that uses the English names, so they aren't completely alien to me.)
    I love Haibara Ai's attitude, even as a midget kid. I think even if given the choice to go back to being an adult or growing up, she'd choose the latter, and I think it would be very interesting to see a story exploring her motivations for such. I think also exploring the fact that she used to be a criminal would also be interesting to explore. Having her being genuine friends with any of the other kids would be A++ and I love seeing her interact with Conan/Shinichi, especially when they have a snark off.

    Another idea might be to explore her background - her relationship with her sister (that's obviously super important to her) or if you wanted to look to the future - having her grow up along side the other detective boys and them realising something being not quite right for Ai.

    Kaitou is hilariously fun with his antics, but he also has a much more serious side. Please feel free to go either way with the story, with a heist that he is pulling, pranking detectives, flirting in disguises or maybe having his motivations line up with Shinichi/Conan and working with them. Cross dressing antics are A++ I also love seeing how he and Shinichi are a like, and Kaitou taking advantage. XD

    Other ideas could be writing about how he came to be scared of fish?

     

    (P.S Kaitou kid stars in some of the movies, and there's a movie AU where Ai and Conan both grow up and are in high school, and most of the movies can be watched with little background, maybe a quick wiki for who the characters are, if you got matched with me on another series and need a back up prompt.)

    • Any Character
    Summary
    I’m happy to receive fic on any of the nominated characters for Hikaru no Go, and have left some prompts for them all.

    Isumi Shinichirou - I love the chinese arc where Isumi really comes into himself. I'd love to see the impacts of that with Waya, or having him go back for a visit to China once again / having his Chinese friends come to visit Isumi. Or maybe just having him commiserate with Ogata, over the torments that Kuwabara inflicts on both of them. (Or you could just settle for the torment Kuwabara inflicts. :D Hey I bet Isumi makes for a /great/ golf caddie!)
    Kuwabara Honinbou - and on that note, Kuwabara! :D Ahahaha, I OTP ship him with Ogata (it is totes canon!!!!) and love the way that he trolls other professionals in the Go Industry. I also like the moments which indicate that he has some spiritual awareness - he couldn’t see Sai but he sensed something and seeing more to explore that would be very cool. If you wanted to explore the history of Japan and changes Kuwabara’s witnessed that would also be A++ to me.
    Ogata Seiji - oh Ogata. I do enjoy watching Ogata suffer. :D :D :D He seems so prideful, then so utterly desperate in trying to find Sai, and watching him grit his teeth about Kuwabara makes me happy. But if you wanted to keep Ogata happy, that’s ok too. XD While I OTP Kuwabara with Ogata, I’m happy with any pairing for Ogata.
    Shindou Hikaru - I’m ok with any pairing for Shindou, but I’d rather it not be a focus on Hikaru/Akira. Sorry! It’s ok to have it in the background! I love the idea of Shindou interacting with other supernatural things – he’s seen one ghost, what if there were others that now become visible after Sai is gone? (oh man a Natsume style crossover would be brilliant.)
    Touya Akira - I’m ok with any pairing for Touya, but I’d rather it not be a focus on Hikaru/Akira. Sorry! It’s ok to have it in the background! I think it would be particularly interesting to see fic focused on Touya growing up, pre-Shindou. We already know that it’s a lonely life, but I think it would be interesting seeing ways that he’s introduced to Go / the Go world is introduced to him.
    Touya Kouyou - the gravitas of this man in the series is really impressive, and I love the way that he’s rejuvenated post his game with Sai. Seeing his adventures would be very cool to me! Or if you wanted to explore father bonding times with Akira that would also be enjoyable. I also think watching him and Hikaru hang out would be hilarious given how much he intimidates Hikaru at times. XD
    Waya Yoshitaka - Any of the following would be great: Friendship with the other insei, his weird grudges against random people, his confusion at Hikaru's weird ways, and the internet. I love internet and Waya fics. <3 I love seeing Waya connect with the Chinese characters, in particular Yang Hai (they can bond over the internet!) and Le Ping (twice the fun!), and also I enjoy watching Waya suffer with everything Shindou and the other go maniacs have to throw at him. I also would love the idea of Waya cosplaying – especially if it was Zelda. XD

    Summary

    The only issue I have with shipping in this fandom, is I don't like underage explicit fic. I would rather it stay gen / chaste, unless they are adults (although I agree Gon/Killua is cute as well).

    Ging is a character I didn't really care about in the original anime, but with some of the recent manga arcs I'm finding him completely fascinating. I've tried to keep this more general, but it might contain spoilers - I haven't been following the dark continent saga though.

    I find it really fascinating with how everyone reacts to him in the election arc and how he's shown to be a complete troll. I find his relationship with Pariston Hill fascinating, writing more about that dynamic of trying to out predict the other would be awesome, and I want to see Ging's dream of exploring the world tree. (As I've said with a friend, it's a perfect crossover over opportunity, if you are so inclined XD.)

    I also find it fascinating seeing him briefly explain how he got into becoming a hunter and comparing and contrasting him with Gon. They have some similarities, but I think even in their similarities - it emphasises how different they both can be and exploring that in a character study, or plot fic with their contrasting reactions would be fascinating.

    Killua is my absolute favourite character in hunter x hunter. I love his cheekiness combined with sense of responsibility. I love how much he supports Gon and their really valuable friendship.

    His relationship with his family is also really fascinating with how much they dote on him ( and he struggles sometimes to be free of their grasp).

    I also think that his relationship with Ging could be quite interesting as they both play an important role in Gon's life.

    I also really enjoyed seeing Killua with Biske-chan, with their training. There were some interesting things Biske-chan observed and building off that would be quite fun.

    I also love his relationship with Alluka shown in one of the later arcs of the manga - backstories or future fic with the two of them would be quite awesome as well.




    Apologies to those who kept getting the broken cut version - not sure why it kept resetting itself. /o\

    Anniversary

    Apr. 24th, 2015 05:10 pm
    owlmoose: (ffx2 - paine detail2)
    [personal profile] owlmoose
    So I got busy with other things and missed the exact date, but as of last Sunday, April 19th, I've been in fandom for 10 years.

    I'd done other things one might describe as fannish before, and of course I've been a fan of things for much longer than that -- my whole life, really. But I date my active participation in fandom to the posting of my first fanfic, which went up on fanfiction.net on April 19th, 2005. I'd been working on it for months, along with the second story I ever posted (the first chapter of that went up a week or so later), and I hemmed and hawed about posting it at all, but I decided it was worth throwing it up there to see what happened. And fandom happened. It took a couple of months, but by the summer I had a few regular readers, and then I met [livejournal.com profile] kunstarniki and the rest is history.

    When I posted about this anniversary on Tumblr a bit ago, when it was still upcoming, I noted that ten years isn't that long to be in fandom, really -- I know many people who've been involved much longer, and people who came to it far younger. But it's still a good chunk of time, and it's changed my life so much. It wouldn't be entirely wrong to divide my life up into "before fandom" and "after fandom". And although fandom comes with its ups and downs, I can't imagine giving it up. It's brought me the creative outlet I always needed, and I've met so many fantastic people -- including some of the best friends I've ever had.

    I thought about doing something grand for the anniversary, but I ran out of both time and ideas, so this brief meander was the best I could do. Thank you, all of you, for being a part of this grand experience. Here's to ten years and ten more, and another ten after that.

    Done a couple of loads of dishes today. Still pots and trays to go, but I've done all the plates, bowls, cups, cutlery and utensils and some of the plastics. So, not too shabby.

    I've finished the gusset decreases on my first Cadence sock. I'm knitting it in a navy blue acrylic baby yarn, and it's looking pretty good so far.

    Watching through Earth's Mightiest Heroes again, because I felt like it after Age of Ultron.

    Thinking I might do [livejournal.com profile] marvel_bang again this year with Emma. I had an idea a while back for a fic that followed on from Captain America: Man Out Of Time by Waid/Molina/Kesel that I never got around to writing that I think I could make into something good. That, or my AU Peggy fic that has been languishing, half-finished, on my computer for months. Gosh I love that thing.

    Emma wants more of the muesli I make, so I'll probably do that at some point in the next couple of days.

    I'm thinking home made pizzas for dinner tonight. Because pizza.

    FIC SUMMARY: Yesterday, he thought he knew what to expect from Narnia: "good solid English cooking spiced up with the odd unusual ingredient, and good solid English people spiced up with the odd faun". But unexpected gastronomic adventure is on the menu when Anthony Bourdain finally gets to take his foodie film crew to Narnia.

    FIC SUMMARY:

    She is Nataliya. She is Nathalie. She is Talia. She is Natasza. She is Natasha.

    A story of how Natasha Romanoff found herself, with a little help from that annoying American with the bow.


    RECCER'S NOTES: Lovely Natasha backstory, a beautiful sketch of how she fought to make herself, and the believable could-have-beens of her origins with SHIELD.

    “Clint Barton,” he replied, perfunctorily shaking hands with LeClair. Natasha wondered if he always used Clint. She doubted Barton was his last name, but perhaps it was. The American had done nothing as he was supposed to; it was unexpected and refreshing. She rather hoped he would not be the next on her list, but if he kept turning up like this, the Red Room was bound to notice. The Red Room noticed everything.

    MAIN CHARACTERS: Clint Barton, OCs

    FIC SUMMARY: Two years after the events of New York, Clint Barton is deep undercover in Bulgaria. When the events of Captain America: The Winter Soldier reveal his identity to the organised crime syndicate he's infiltrated, he finds himself stranded in Varna with no allies and no resources. Moreover, the local mafia are about to enact a plan that could put the entire region at risk. With Hydra hot on his heels, Clint must rely on his wits and a few local friends to put an end to the plot and get out alive.

    RECCER'S NOTES: Wondering what Clint was up to during Captain America: The Winter Soldier? This story shows us a plausible, action-packed explanation. Thematically inspired by the Fraction/Aja comic in an interesting way, as the daunting situations of the MCU meet an extremely human Clint. Contains one of my favourite MCU specific tropes, Deaf/Hard of Hearing Clint. Who we should get more of in canon, anyway.

    It's time for our regular reccer recruiting post, and to look ahead to the next month. So far we have two volunteer reccers who signed up for May with these fandoms:

    * Bandom ([personal profile] turlough)
    * Star Trek ([personal profile] ceares)

    So while we already have some recs to look forward to in May, it would of course be awesome if we had more recs. There is still plenty of opportunity for you to jump in and volunteer to rec next month (or to convince your friends to do some reccing). And many cheers for all of our members who volunteer to rec, especially if you rec regularly. Your valiant repeat efforts keep the comm alive.

    Looking even further ahead so far NO reccers have volunteered for June, so that month definitely still needs some love (and recs! *g*) too. So please consider reccing in a fandom of your choice, whether small or huge, and comment on the sign-up post and volunteer for May, June or even further ahead if you are so well organized, that you know your fannish interests and time commitments in advance. It's only four recs as a minimum, and you can rec any genre or rating. Or promote us to your friends or in your favorite communities so others do the work.

    Open Rec Posting

    The monthly open reccing period for all members starts now and lasts until the end of April. If you are looking for something to inspire you, the prompt for this week is "Dance", but that's totally optional for the recs. However they do still have to conform to the usual rec format and follow the rules for what is allowed to be recced here.

    RATING/WARNING(S): G
    WIP?/WORD COUNT: one-shot | ~ 2,040 words
    MAIN CHARACTERS: Lee Jordan, Kingsley Shacklebolt

    FIC SUMMARY: Lee Jordan has the best idea of his life. Now he just needs someone else to hear him out.

    RECCER'S NOTES:

    This is how it could have happened. Love the vivid description, and the mix of brightness and darkness. Love Kingsley's view on Lee, and their interaction.
