Since this journal is primarily for fanfic, here's a nice, easy, alphabetical list of all the fics I've written.  (Note that anything written before August of '09 was originally posted on ff.net, where I used to go by the name Sztorm.  I have since cross-posted those fics, under their original publish dates.)

Fandoms included below are:

-Catherine and the Pirate (1)
-Darker Than Black  (1)
-Escaflowne  (13)
-Final Fantasy VII  (14)
-Final Fantasy X  (1)
-Frozen  (1)
-Hetalia  (33)
-Star Trek: The Next Generation  (6)
-A Tale of Two Cities  (1)

Cross-overs:
-FFVII / The Sandman  (1)
-Hetalia / FFVII  (1)

Various ficbits (random scenes, drabbles, etc.) can be found here.  The few other fan-related things I've made (FSTs, fanart, etc.) can be found at the very bottom of this post.

(If you aren't familiar with the Nice Guy phenomenon, here are some articles to remedy that.)

I've recently been plowing my way through Frasier.  Frasier was one of those shows that, as an early teenager, if it happened to be on, I would watch it and enjoy it, but I never really went out of my way to catch it.  But lately I've grown tired of listening to music while I work, so I've instead started putting TV shows on as background noise--M*A*S*H, 3rd Rock From the Sun, and yes, Frasier (I'm hoping to work my way back to The Golden Girls, The Mary Tyler Moore Show, and maybe even Designing Women--if only for the retrolicious fashion and '80s entrepreneurialism).

Anyway, Frasier is one of those sitcoms I've grown to heartily enjoy.  It's smart, sarcastic, funny (the rare bits of physical comedy are some of the most hilarious I've ever seen), surprisingly (or perhaps unsurprisingly, as it's focused on a psychiatrist) intellectual, and at times, incredibly poignant.  No doubt this has to do with the relationships in the series (you know me and relationships), and just how very real and complex they are.  Truly, this show had some fantastic writers.  Last night, I actually stopped what I was doing to fully focus on one particular episode (8x19), because it was so wonderfully, tactfully, and realistically handled.

Thar be spoilers (and video) ahead. )

I recently started reading through some old FFVII writings, and while a lot of it is cringe-inducing in its bloatedness (this was before I became the editing whore I currently am), some parts were actually kind of nice, and as this is a writing journal, I figured why the hell not post some passages. (I suspect they'll never see the light of day otherwise, considering they're from abandoned WIPs I don't much like the premises of anymore.) So here are three angsty, drabbly things that I mostly just like for the language and imagery.

Ghosts. )

Precious little dirty things. )

He dreamt. )
konstantya: (bullshit)
Against my will, it seems my Austria is getting more like my Vincent every day.  Now he's having creepy-obsessive thoughts about Hungary.  Granted, it's more like a one-time deal, and he gets better, so I'm still more apt to call it love with a sprinkling of obsession, rather than obsession with a sprinkling of...whatever it was Vincent put on top.

Sexual frustration is a bitch.  Austria, if you weren't such a gentleman, you wouldn't have this problem.  Maybe you should go slut yourself out, just for a release, you know?

...Man, that's a hot thought.  No wonder Hungary can't manage to leave him, even though he's bad for her.

He's also a sneaky, manipulative son of a bitch, and a total pencil-neck priss besides, so maybe he's got some Hojo in him, as well.

(I swear.  Sometimes I think the only thing that keeps me going with this complicated fuck-all of a romance is my head-canon where they actually develop a healthy relationship post-Iron Curtain--one thing my Vincent can't exactly claim with Lucrecia.  And one thing I haven't yet written, because who wants to write about healthy relationships?  They're boring.  Nice, normal lives don't make for good stories.)

Also, I've been writing some Poland.  And IT IS EVERYTHING I HOPED IT WOULD BE AND MORE AWESOMENESS ON TOP OF THAT.

Seriously.  Poland is, like, rival-Prussia awesome.  And I want to marry Spain and have Liechtenstein as a friend, but that's beside the point.

I'm a big fan of M*A*S*H, and I admittedly infused a little bit of Max Klinger into my Poland (novelty cross-dressing turns into an actual coping mechanism), but it wasn't until today that I got the AMAZING idea of a scenario where they meet up and trade fashion secrets.  As I refuse to touch the M*A*S*H fandom, and don't have any particular desire to start writing fics for it (I don't feel I have anything to add), I'm quite content to just let this be a happy plot-bunny in my head.

But if someone did happen to write that scenario, I'd owe them a fic of awesome on mere principle.

Which I shouldn't say, because then that very fic will fall into my lap tomorrow, and I'll be obligated to write a corresponding gift fic, and with my luck, my mind will be completely BLANK.

And I have enough RL things I need to concentrate on right now, anyway.  I shouldn't even be writing Klinger!Poland and Vincent!Austria as it is.  I should be taking a shower and going to bed.

And...on that note, I think I'm done with this post.  XD

...and I realize I've been writing fanfiction (and posting it online) long enough for me to cringe at my older pieces.  Which makes me wonder if I even, you know, want to bother cross-posting some of my old stuff.

It also makes me want to write more FFVII stuff, if only because I like my current writing style so much more than what it used to be back in my FFVII hey-day, as it may be.  Not that all my old FFVII stuff is crap, because there's a fair amount of it I still like and am quite proud of, but...you know.  I'd like to see what I could do with it nowadays.  History in the context of Hetalia needs to stop eating my brain.

(I feel like everything I've posted today ends up, like, next-door of where I wanted it to be.  Not real far off, but...not quite on target, either.  I think I'm just in a funk from the sick.)

Rating: PG-13
Word count: ~4,700 How the fuck did I get so much out of this?

For [livejournal.com profile] venefica_aura, because of this post.

Double the angsting, double the fun! )

Austria is my Tifa of Hetalia.  Meaning I kind of throw him around everywhere and in just about everything, because I often like the way characters interact with him, and the way he interacts with others.  I even make him (surreptitiously) angst about his relationship with Hungary.

OH MY GOD I'M WRITING THE SAME STORY OVER AND OVER AGAIN.

Well, not quite.  But there's a bit of a trend, at the very least.

This kind of makes me want to write a crack crossover where they interact with each other.  They can both pretend they're not angsting, and maybe they'll make out at the end.  (Better yet, sex.  'Cause if I'm doing a crack-fic ("doing" in the theoretical sense--I severely doubt I will ever write this scenario), I might as well go all the way cracky.  Already I'll be having a world-saving chick talking to a country that doesn't even exist in her universe.  What better way to end it than sex?  It makes perfect sense!)

Finished Hetalia fic gets posted tomorrow.  At the moment, it's too late; I'm too tired.

So I just realized who would make the perfect Vincent Valentine (if played by a real actor): Conrad Veidt.

For a while, I was thinking Adrien Brody, and while he'd admittedly make a damn good Vincent, he has now been relegated to my runner-up.

Anyway, Conrad Veidt is probably most known for being very German and playing a German in "Casablanca."  I'm more into his earlier silent work, like "The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari" or "The Man Who Laughs."  (The former is a FANTASTICALLY fucked up movie--arguably the first horror film, though far more psychologically thrilling than visually gruesome.  The latter is just as fantastic, because--aside from a little bit of melodramatic hand gesticulating--Veidt essentially acts the entire movie with his eyes.  And the titular character served as visual inspiration for The Joker, so there's some trivia for you.)

But no, seriously, check it:



Is that not like the most perfect Vincent ever?  Handsome, but still kind of unsettling.  Sort of vulnerable, but totally looks like he wouldn't mind killing a few people for a paycheck.  Hell, it looks like he might already do that for a hobby.  And you can't tell from this pic exactly, but Veidt totally had the tall and lanky thing going on.

So yeah.  I rest my case.

FFX HAS ATE MY BRAIN!  Too many plot-bunnies!  Too many possibilities with Lulu and Auron and Rikku and even young!Tidus!

I still love you, Vincent and FFVII OC of mine.  I really do.  But you have angst and bitchiness (respectively), whereas Rikku has chirpiness and Lulu has smirks and Auron is my new punching bag best fanfiction friend.

And they don't have a whole slew of sequels/prequels/whatever-quels.
