My! I’ve been on quite an editing bent. That new method WordPress is using is really motivating me! I’ve added a bit more to the Danny Phantom page, and am tentatively labeling the Noblesse page finished as I’ve pulled all the fics I followed on ff.net onto that page. I suppose at some point I’ll need to add AO3 fics to that page, we’ll see. Now, I’m going to take a break to reread Forms of Elegance, and maybe do some cleaning.
Bonsoir. Or good morning if you’re in a similar time zone to myself, and actually just got up as opposed to myself attempting to stay awake as an attempt to recognate my sleep cycle to third shift work. I like working third shift, I just have an issue when I only work it two days and have to readjust for the other days. This is why my “what have I edited” posts might have the potential to come off weird, I’m tired…but I’m weird anyway so that train of thought isn’t as logical as it started out.
Randomness: I discovered today while reading in my A Handbook to Literature, that the word ‘squib’ is actually a literary term having to do with satirical stuff. I really wonder if JK Rowling knew that when she chose the term. It would be interesting if she did, although I suppose it’s possible she chose it for the more well-known theory, the whole-burnt out firework meaning. Randomness done.
I actually edited some more on the Harry Potter page, I’m to the ‘H’s now. YAY! *sarcasm over now* Well I am glad to be editing on it more, but I foresee the ‘H’ fics to take a very long time as there are probably going to more of them than any other letter in the alphabet seeing as titles “Harry Potter and…” are so very popular. If I was a little more enthusiastic and more awake I would be throwing in odd little gifs and videos, such as that one song “I will be popular” which I only know because of a Kaito Kid AMV, ….this one I don’t even like this song! And now it’s going to be stuck in my head again. The AMV is good though.
I have also decided to create extra crossover pages for some of the longer lists of crossovers: the Harry Potter crossovers were taking over the Various Crossovers page. The Harry Potter crossovers is underneath the Various Crossovers page.
WordPress has actually made this site a little easier for me to make/edit! Previously, the pages were organized in the list of the date the pages were created, but now WordPress is organizing them the way the pages are organized on the site, so editing is easier! It also now tells me how long ago it’s been since I edited a page, like the ones I just did were 12 minutes ago, and there are some I haven’t edited in over five months. So now I can see which ones I’ve been neglecting!
Also I’ve gotten addicted to listening to motivation videos while working on this. It’s better than the TEDtalks. A good way to stick quotes on your work desk is by using a label maker to paste the quotes you like to your desk. I don’t…that sentence sounded more logical in my head.
[edit: I’m an idiot. I forgot there was a difference between blog posts and pages.]
I’m on summer vacation for the moment so I can get around to editing this alot more. i think I’ll probably add a little bit every day, instead of doing big blocks of editing and getting discouraged over how much more is left. I’ve already added a few more fics to the Yu Yu Hakusho page, and I’m adding one or two stories to the Naruto page each day.
I’ve also created a page for Random Links, which is basically just various articles I found interesting. If you take a look at that page you will probably note my interest in fitness, teas, amongst other things. So I’m going to go edit some before I have to get ready for work.
That sounds weird.
Finals are almost over. Tomorrow my torture continues. Then a few papers and essays. Then I will be back to editing this site. I will probably focus on Yu Yu Hakusho cause I’ve been reading those whenever I have free time and it is way too hard to find non slash fics in this fandoms. Whoever came up with that meme/cartoon where you open a fanfic page and it’s “YAOI YAOI YAOI!” wasn’t far off from the YYH page. But I’ve found quite a few!
I wish more people would write Harry Potter -YYH crossover fics though, or the authors who have started fics would finish them. I’ve found a few enjoyable ones, but it’s rare to find a completed one.
And now I need to sleep and dream of le conditionnel et le futur et l’imparfait et passe compose. Finals….
sAvE mE from the finals!!
ed: looks like I will be working on the Naruto page too, WOW, that page is popular.
Hello. I’ve been away from this site for a bit. So. I haven’t actually done any editing. I am still getting used to being back in school, and as I’m currently trying to keep my grades up so I can join some honors stuff. Unfortunately seven years of not speaking French is not conducive to one’s foreign language credit so I’m struggling a little with that and am going to be focusing on that more than anything. So probably very little editing will be done this semester especially as I will be coming up on mid-terms next week and I am trying to juggle work around school too. I may do a little on spring break, but I have many other things to get done. It just depends on how it goes, and how much priority I put on it. Also I work on this site more on my PC than my laptop since that has all my bookmarks plus a keyboard that doesn’t stick. So maybe a little editing, maybe no.
In good news! R J Ross just announced on Facebook the release of the next book in the Cape High series, Coyote’s Howl. This is the 17th book of a great series. If you haven’t read the series yet I totally recommend it.
In other news, one of my siblings just misspelled “ink pen” as “ink pin” on Facebook…..
Happy 1-4 day! If you use the Gregorian calendar, happy New Year!
It truly is a new year for me with a new job and a new school and new tires. So I begin once more to edit.
I haven’t actually done all that much so far these four days this year on the site. I’ve added a Merlin fanfiction page for the BBC tv show as I’ve found several I’ve quite enjoyed for all that I have only seen a few episodes of the show.
I’ve edited a bit on the Danny Phantom page. I was going to add quite a few stories but as I started to, I realized that many of the stories in my follow list…I don’t understand why I liked them.
School starts for me on the 17th. I don’t know how much I’ll get to edit after that. I’ll just have to wait and see.
On the bright side I will be continuing my studies of French which means that hopefully I’ll get fluent enough to start reading French fanfiction!
I need to work on my priorities.
Just a quick bit to say I’ve started separating the fanfiction into categories. I’ve only got Anime/Manga and Comic Book fanfiction categories set up. The categories are under Fanfiction same as before with the hovering of the key, just to the side. That sentence made more sense in my head. I need to make this easier to navigate so I’ll probably add links eventually to the empty pages that I use for holding categories. [It’s late and I’ve had a bad day so please pardon the departure from proper and sensible grammar.]
I also cleaned up the Yu Yu Hakusho page, and started the Skip Beat! page.
May you not slip down five steps of stairs and then spill hot liquid on the non-injured leg.
