Fall ’17 Announcements

Huh, that title sounds horribly pretentious.Ah well, I’ve always thought I sound horribly pretentious anyway. But I’m merely “announcing” that I probably won’t be able to edit much this fall. I’m going to be taking a full semester and I’m hoping to get involved with a couple groups as well. Not only that but I’m planning on being ambitious enough to attempt to make my GPA raise a bit higher than it currently is. So I have to figure out when I’m doing what before  I figure out when I want to edit. I definitely will still attempt to do so, I just won’t have as much time: 4 English classes, doncha’ know.

In other news RJ Ross has released another book: Cape High Villainy: A Side Story (Cape High Series) which was quite enjoyable as it showed more of the adult side of the storyverse. Well, and Skystep.

I honestly think that’s all.

True Blue!!

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.

Morning!

[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.

Ta!
……
That sounds weird.

Update

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.

2/24 (not edits)

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…..

*sigh*

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.

Blessed Year!

Yo!

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.

Happy Thanksgiving to you! Regardless of where you live, may this holiday charm you with the reminder that even through the darkest of times we all have something to be thankful for. [Unless of course you believe the whole “It’s only for the sake of commercialization” jazz or dislike the history behind some of it. If so, just let us poor ignorants celebrate anyway.]

So, with a few days to go and only approximately six thousand words written, I’m going to go ahead and say I failed this year’s NaNoWriMo. On the bright side, I now realize that if I discipline myself better, I can write three pages at least a day. So I have a better goal towards those unwritten plots now.

Back to the actual edits now.

I have once again added a few more fics to the Naruto page, and am working some more on fixing the oddly not alphabetical order I have it in.

It turns out that I had not fixed up the Doctor Who page since before I figured out how to stop double spacing when I didn’t want to so I’ve gone and fixed that up. I added a few more fics to it. At some point I’ll put some more up there, because I know I’ve read more than just that.

I have not yet but I am going to add a fanfiction page for Skip Beat! I only have a few fics for it right now, but I know I have more in my alerts on ff.net because as weird as it may sound: it was a shojo manga that got me into fanfiction. I state it to the world. You have it on record.

My list of fandoms is getting rather long, so I’m thinking about separating them into different subgroups. Something along the lines of Comics, Anime/Manga, Books/Movies/TV Shows, Other. This has mostly been inspired by the Comics fanfiction because I really don’t want to separate the comics because some of them are crossovers but aren’t really because it all draws from the same multiverse even if it uses several different versions of canon. That’s actually what I got on the computer to do tonight, sooo yeah.

On a rather random note, empty canned cat food cans make your garbage smell really bad; and family gatherings are much more meaningful when the rowdy children [aka spoiled BRAT!!] have already left by the time you arrive.

Also I’m thinking about joining the Marines.

Don’t get crushed at Walmart!

This is how you remind me…that it isn’t actually 2017 yet. I knew I was sick of the political debates, but I did not actually realize that I had put 2017 on my NaNoWriMo page until I was at work today. Talk about wishful thinking!

So in the fanfiction folders…I emptied out the Bleach folder! I still can’t believe I managed that. Now I’ve only got three cumbersome folders: Naruto, Xovers, and Comics. I have a few other folders left, but those are much much smaller than the three listed.

In interest of making it easier to alphabetize the pages, I discovered a fascinating ability. It is actually possible to alphabetize the bookmarks folders! Isn’t that remarkable? [Although I really wish I hadn’t done that to the Xover folder, it was better ordered before I did that]

I have added quite a bit to the Various Crossovers page, and it’s starting to look semi-organized. I’m trying to figure out how ff.net chooses to put their crossover titles together. It doesn’t make any organizational sense. Okay so Harry Potter +Bleach, HP is first; but Batman + Harry Potter Batman is first, but it’s obviously not alphabetical or else Harry Potter + Danny Phantom DP would be first. I’m confused now.

I’ve added a bit more to the Naruto page, trying to get that folder shrunk down a little anyway.

NaNoWriMo. I’m not reaching my goal of 1,667 words a day. I need to have 2000 words a day a few times, I guess. If I don’t I think I will not make it. I’m already doing good this year, I must make it! Sadly though, the first few thousands are coming out really generic and cliche… It won’t be cliche once Melnos’s background comes out, I think {goes to check tv tropes}   -_- Nevermind I’m not going through that entire list to make sure my idea that I’d like to think will be unique when I get it done and finished, isn’t. Ah well, nothing new under the sun and all. I’ll just have to plan a lot of editing for December and try to get it better in the next thousands of words.

I need a few more words tonight: Cometh the battle! So night!
