It's a wrap

And so another November draws to a close. I did manage to blog every day, but I didn't feel terribly inspired by it most of the time. Probably because I got so mired down in the election during the first half of the month and work stress in the second half. I'm a little disappointed that I didn't get more fic written, although there are three WIPs that should appear sooner rather than later. I hope.

I have managed a nice lazy holiday weekend, which was good. Grocery shopping, the Ferry Building for lunch yesterday, and we've cooked every night -- although tonight we're just heating up some pre-made ribs, but I did make cornbread from scratch, and it smells yummy. Lots of reading, some good spacing out on TV; we caught Star Wars on TV on Friday (you are never going to get me to call it A New Hope), and The Empire Strikes Back is buffering up now. I always forget just how much I love those movies. I always meant to snap up the non-special edition trilogy when it came out on DVD, but I never got around to it. I should check and see if they're still available.

So that was my four-day weekend. I hope you all had a great one as well -- safe travel to all who have not yet returned home!

Welcome back! You definitely needed lazy, after the last few weeks.

I am grateful for my aged videotape player due to things like old Star Wars.

I look forward to your fic-- I think Muggy roped you into something Kinoc-related, for one, and you two are starting to get me more interested in Kinoc!

I also selfishly look forward to your reaction to the latest chunk of ye Epic That Ate My Brain. I'm drawing near (but still haven't quite reached) the Crimson Squad chapters that you inspired. ETA T-2 chapters to Gippal, 4 chapters to Nooj, 8 to Paine. Gah. Yes, it's huge. The farther I go, the more I am in awe of what you and Kunst achieved with DSHND. (Which I am scared to finish, lest I get into too much story-overlap, but I have NOT forgotten that it is waiting on my To Be Read box.)

I do have all three movies on VHS, and we have, in theory, a working VCR. I just never think to watch them.

Muggs' request wasn't specifically Kinoc-related, but I do intend to work him in there, because I love working with Kinoc. He's easily my favorite minor character in FFX. Unfortunately, that isn't one of the WIPs -- I'm not that far along yet. But I am poking at the bunnies; hopefully one will hop along soon.

Re. epic: I've been following along! I'm just the worst reviewer ever. It's nice to see you back at it, though. I especially like what you're doing with Rikku and Wakka. But I will do my best get you real reviews eventually. I think writing an epic collaboratively was actually easier than when I wrote one solo, because we could bounce ideas off each other and rein one another in whenever we got too far off the track. We also outlined a lot, which I highly recommend.

Twelve. page. outline. O.O Yes, I'm learning THAT the hard way. I think my unconscious is doing a dress rehearsal for the writing part of the dissertation.
And I do not need reviews (though they are loved), but love to know I've got a few readers. (Which you are not obligated to be, since after all I was lame and haven't finished DSHND yet, but I am most grateful to know you're there).

Oh, well, not Kinoc from you yet, but I will watch for your stuff. There are few of us now, so it's easier to keep up. *wry grin*

It's not about obligation, I promise; it's just about reading a good story written by a friend. And I know what you mean about wanting to feel like one has readers, whether or not they review. It's the one thing I miss about not posting on FF.net any more -- the lack of hit count tools.

I will write more Kinoc; I am a founding member of his fanclub, after all. ;) It's just finding the right ideas at the right time.

I just noticed that Kinoc has the blue streamers down the front that Rikku wears in back.

There's a crackfic in that somewhere .O.o

    Ooooh, I would totally be down with an all-BioWare Kiss Battle, that sounds like so much fun. I would totally prompt for some older IPs like Jade Empire, too :D

    Give me notice and I'll go spam the…

    I've already gotten at least one request to make it an all-Bioware canons kiss battle, which might encourage more participation given the current state of hype for Andromeda... :)

    If I go for it, I…

    I'd love one, and I'm sure the gang over on dragon_age would be (although they're we're all hyping up over Mass Effect Andromeda right now, but still worth posting a…

    I'm concerned and I don't primarily use DW. I am thinking about backing up my content there, but I'm just not sure about how it will work out. I do need to get on this, though.
