LGBT fantasy/sci-fi novels?
Hmm?, Trap face forward, Naoto
You know, looking at the bookshelf in the local bookshop makes me want to seriously try my hand at making the m/m high fantasy short story I'm writing into an actual, legit novel.
On account of the lack of fantasy books with lgbt protagonists or characters, you know?

I know that Crossed Genres did a great issue of fantasy with LGBTQ themes but it really would be great to see more.
In the YA section, too. (Although I've yet to get around to buying myself a copy of Ash, I intend to do so soon, since I've heard it is indeed very good.)

Anybody know of another other fantasy/sci-fi novels with well-handled LGBT themes, characters or same-sex romance?

Waff fanfic alert! - "Extended Family Dinner"
dork Phoenix icon
Title: (Extended) Family Dinner

Disclaimer: There is no way in which I own any of the Ace Attorney characters or scenario, at all. They're all property of Capcom.
Series: Ace Attorney games (post-Apollo Justice.)
Pairing: Phoenix Wright/Miles Edgeworth, there'd be some secondary ones if this wasn't a mere blip of a fic.
Warnings: Mild spoilers (character names) for Ace Attorney Investigations, mild spoilers for Apollo Justice. Other wise, it's
Notes: Short piece of absolute and slightly doofey WAFF. When I say doofey, I mean it. It's a bit like getting strangled by the fluff fairy.
I've gotten back into Ace Attorney fandom and once again wanted to briefly demonstrate my silly devotion to my OTP.

Constructive criticism is welcome and would be positively encouraged if this wasn't shorter than a Manx cat's tail. However, I would be glad to know how my characterisation fares, and if anyone has any thoughts on my writing style.
Oh, and I rather regrettably haven't yet had the chance to play Apollo Justice, so I'm winging it slightly with some things.

This is a WAFF ficCollapse )

Dragonair design WIP

I'm currently needing to get back to this - I have to do the crystal sphere whatsits and the eyes.
I'm nearly done, though.

Hello to Wandercrest and Demented_spoon!
Hmm?, Trap face forward, Naoto
On the off chance you guys see this, it's nice to make your acquintance!
You may like to know that I am a fan of slash, femmeslash and het, tend to ramble a bit and very sporadically post stories and fanfic.
I am also not too dependable, as can be seen from the fact that I haven't posted in ages, s-sob.

I feel very guilty for ignoring my lj friends. However, I am quite lazy and full of both bad and good character traits.

The Oldest Things [Original Short Story]
Hmm?, Trap face forward, Naoto
Hot off the press, a new story and a deep apology for being, well, not on livejournal at all for ages. Since the beginning of December, even. I hope you've all been keeping well, and enjoyed the holidays.
I was awfully busy with my Young Scientist entry in January, and then never got around to posting again. If any of the deadly sins is mine, it's Sloth. Anyway, if I get time, I also want to type up, sometime soon, a roughly-1000-word KuroFai Horitsuba Gakuen AU fanfic which I somehow managed to scribble down between two days.

What It Is: It's based on the idea of werewolves, curses and how to break a curse.
The full titles is "The Oldest Things Begin and End in Blood", but it sounded overly dramatic. It's also been called "Heart's Ease" because I can't make up my mind, and Heartsauce by someone who was having a laugh.
Notes: I'm entering this in the late teen age bracket of a writing competition, so wish me luck! Since there is no limit to the number of entries, I'm also sending Lady Justice, and Serpent & Dragon. (Which is "The Serpent and the Dragon" with a slightly changed ending, mhm.)
Warnings: Blood, murder, but nothing too bad. (I think.) There used to be some (more) strange and awkward undertones, but I edited them out of this version, mostly because it exceeded the wordcount and I was going to get my teacher to review it, but decided not to.
Words: 974

I'm kind of hungry right now.Collapse )

The Serpent and the Dragon [Original Short Story]
dork Phoenix icon
Notes: Based on a prompt that cynoyonrae gave me on the "You Should Write" meme - the interactions between two or more elements personified, I think it was!
As I said before, I decided to write a kind of "fake legend" so hopefully that went well.
I can't be bothered trying to wrangle with lj enough use indents for each paragraph, so there's a line of space between them instead.
Warnings: Nothing, really, but the prose is somewhat purply at times, to be sure, and the tenses get a tiny bit loose at times. Also there may be some apostrophe abuse, as I have not proof read it properly.
Words: 798

Once...Collapse )

Coconuts migrate?, wtf

1. Make a post to your LJ. The post should contain your list of ten holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from something simple and fandom-related to something really big. The important thing is, make sure these wishes are things you really, truly want.

2. Surf around your friends list to see who has posted their list. If you see a wish you can grant, and it's in your heart to do so, make someone's wish come true. You needn't spend money on these wishes unless you want to. The point isn't to put people out, it's to provide everyone a chance to be someone else's holiday elf--to spread the joy.

3. There are no rules with this project, no guarantees, and no strings attached. Just wish, and it might come true. Give, and you might receive. And you'll have the joy of knowing you made someone's holiday special.

Under the cut...Collapse )

Complete Badasses. [Fanfic]
Title: Complete Badasses
Fandom: Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle
Genre: CRACK/silliness.
Summary: After the end of Tsubasa, Kurogane and Fai ponder that one great question - Who or what could possibly be more badass than them?
Notes: Stupidity, footnotes and flanderization, ahoy! Don't take it too seriously.
Disclaimer: If I was CLAMP, I wouldn't write anything this silly.
Words: 235

Without further ado...Collapse )
