FANDOM: Ratchet and Clank
FIC LINK: Supermarket Chaos
AUTHOR LINK: [fanfiction.net profile] PurpleArmadillo
RATING/WARNING(S): General Audiences/no warnings
WIP?/WORD COUNT: Complete/4577 words
MAIN CHARACTERS: Dr. Nefarious,Lawrence

FIC SUMMARY: When Dr. Nefarious runs out of his favorite coffee creamer, he decides to accompany Lawrence to the supermarket. Sounds like an easy trip, right? Well, being a wanted supervillain rather complicates things. He's in for a day of ridiculous disguises, moronic superheroes, shopping cart races, and a wild goose chase of mayhem.

RECCER'S NOTES: Absolutely hilarious. The fact that everyone is in character helps make the fic all the funnier.

MAIN CHARACTERS: Severus Snape, Albus Dumbledore

FIC SUMMARY:Chronicling Dumbledore's never-ending and sometimes desperate attempts to fill the Defense Against the Dark Arts position with anyone but Snape and Snape's persistent attempts to land the job anyway.

RECCER'S NOTES: This fic provides a nice look at Snape and Dumbledore's relationship. It also plugs some plot holes and provides a few laughs along the way.

Why this piece is awesome: Hey, I'm back, with more Hamilton fanart! Started out this month with one heck of a cold, but what better to cheer us all up than a reminder of who, exactly, is the smartest one in the room? It's Alexander Hamilton, it's always Alexander Hamilton. I love Vic's style, and Hamilton's expression and Burr's body language are perfect.

Last time on Let's Play Revenant Wings, Clan Potholder crashed on a beautiful paradise island. Then the game decided to make up for lack of character development by foisting a half-hearted love triangle on us.

Which caused me to run to the hills and waste a lot of time grinding. But it turns out we won't have to suffer this tedious trope for too long (spoiler), so bear with me as I bear with it.

Why this piece is awesome: I love the way this work manages to convey the sheer force and vitality I've always associated with Yavanna. And also how perfectly it illustrates this quotation from The Silmarillion: Some there are who have seen her standing like a tree under heaven, crowned with the Sun; and from all its branches there spilled a golden dew upon the barren earth, and it grew green with corn; but the roots of the tree were in the waters of Ulmo, and the winds of Manwë spoke in its leaves.

AUTHOR LINK: [archiveofourown.org profile] SweetAvidyaJones
RATING/WARNING(S): Teen/no warnings
WIP?/WORD COUNT: Complete/2216 words
MAIN CHARACTERS: Amon, Lieutenant, Original Character

FIC SUMMARY: I was so intrigued by Amon and the Equalist movement when they were first introduced. I really wanted some more perspectives on the whole thing so I wrote this fic as sort of a thought experiment and then I liked how it came out.

RECCER'S NOTES: This fic comes with an interesting perspective on the Equalist movement-namely, a firebender who actually wants Amon to remove his bending. It provided a nice twist on events.

AUTHOR LINK: [archiveofourown.org profile] Usami_chan13
RATING/WARNING(S): General Audiences/no warnings
WIP?/WORD COUNT: Complete/1552 words
MAIN CHARACTERS: The Soothsayer, Shifu

FIC SUMMARY: /pending the second movie/ "But the deceased can no longer rectify their mistakes. They can only hold on to their transgressions and all the pain that accompanies them, so that not even death itself can free their soul."

RECCER'S NOTES: This fic lets two characters interact that do have something they could find relatable in each other. The musings on the meaning of atonement help this story stand out.

I continue to be inspired by [community profile] getyourwordsout, even though technically I wrote only one tiny snippet of fic that qualifies for my official creative writing tally.

April Wordcount 521 (35,608 total)
  • Creative: 521 for one flashfic (classic Who, Five/Nyssa fluff)
  • Reviews: 5979 for seven reviews (goal for year: 100 reviews; 37 written so far)
  • Let's Play: A whopping 29,108 for seven entries, not including three nearly-ready drafts.
I'm tempted to start counting my reviews and LP towards GYWO, but I must resist: I signed up to help inspire me towards a creative writing project, so that doesn't count, even though this is a lot of words!

But I feel good about those LP posts, so I'm not gonna beat myself up over it. I just need to finish it and get back to what I was doing!

Oh, and while I'm at it, April fanart. All done in 15-30 minutes.

All Doctor Who, sorry. )

April update; May goals

Days written: 21/30
Words written: 7,840
Words of fic written: 5,133
Stories worked on: One
Stories posted: none

Charts are distracted by other things that I might talk about later. )

1. Write an average of six days per week, with at least one writing sprint, with a goal of getting down to less than 20% behind the annual pace. I forgot when I made this goal that I had an East Coast trip planned for April, and other distractions also came along, so I missed this almost entirely. I did get almost five days a week, though.

2. Add at least double the current wordcount (currently around 7k) to the current draft of Wardens of Ivalice, part 2. Not quite, I only added a little over 5k words, but I feel pretty good about what I did add. I also watched a bunch of FFXII videos and read bits of the DA lore books, which may not add to wordcount but certainly helped with planning and inspiration. The videos, especially -- I've been away from immersion in Ivalice far too long.

May includes both a concert week and some travel, so I will set my goals accordingly. I want to keep working on Wardens of Ivalice, of course, but I find it creatively odd to be working on only one project; on the other hand, I don't really have anything else nagging at me right now. I do have a couple of older Genprompt Bingo cards lying around, and a couple of potential exchanges I could check out. We'll see what comes along.

Goals for May:

1. Write at least five days per week, including at least one writing sprint. (I'm going to keep putting this as a goal until it sticks, because I really do think it's important.)

2. Continue work on Wardens of Ivalice by fleshing out at least two more sections.

3. Write and publish at least one short fic.

4. Write and publish at least one post for [community profile] ladybusiness.
