I've also gained and ally in the completion of my fics. I now have a beta working with me. She and I work well together I think, and just sending her emails to explain my idea for the withdrawal fic has helped me so much in figuring out what I want to do with the story.
I'm off today and tomorrow so I hope to get a lot of work done on both of these...and maybe update my LJ icons...hmm...
OH! Also, working on cheesecake Merlin shot. So silly XD and then I was struck with a brills idea! just now!
Characters/Pairing/Gen: Merlin or Merlin/Arthur
Time-period or theme: Fantasy with Elf!Merlin
Place: castle or possibly in a forest
Object: elf!ears + tattoos + elementals :nature/trees, earth, fire, water, ice, etc
Action: magic & command over the elements
Maximum rating: any
That was a bit of a no-brainer for me because there is little I love more than elemental things and magical things and elves! So yeah, way into it.
Did a bit of reference research for the image today, looking at tons of LOTR things, Thranduil in particular. Have decided that my scenario is going to have something to do with Merlin as an Elf Prince, and Arthur hunting in his woods. After a unicorn. Merlin captures him with magic before Arthur can do any harm, and Merlin is intrigued by Arthur's beauty. Hmm...maybe Arthur can be a half-elf in this scenario? Lord, somehow this is turning into fic xP
No sketches yet, but I'm planning to do research for the tat tmr, and maybe work on some accessories/clothing.
This was for merlin_writers but I failed to finish it on time so...way late. Like WAY. Completed as a gift to my roomie pokemaster. It still happened though, so yay! Posting :) The whole thing to my journal I guess...
Yep. It's not like this is a surprise. LJ has been a place of fandom for me for...well, since I joined. It just so happened that all of my RL friends here were not into fandom and I was trying to put things up that they could relate to. But I don't really care anymore. I've never been good at updating things when they pertain to RL anyway.
SO! I'm gearing up for a push to being more actively creative again. That means fic and art. All of which I plan to post here for...shits and giggles? No. To hold myself accountable and document my creations. And if I happen to pick up a friend or follower or two, that would be neat. But I think the most important part is that I'm doing this for me, because I love it and I'm so lame about allowing my perceived expectations of others to dictate what I will or will not do. I mean, that's dumb.
That being said, I did finish my December story...a month and some change late. I can live with that I think. Working on a Merlin withdrawal fic, because I have this strange fascination with withdrawal symptoms, and I haven't found a fic yet that has met my needs. After that, or actually simultaneously because that's how I roll, I'll be starting work on the final installment of Emrys Rising, while also poking at the first two parts for editing.
It's also my intention to follow-up and finish some of my abandoned KH fics. I essentially have too many stories on my plate while also planning to participate in the Merlin Art Fest and sign up as an Artist for the new Merlin Big Bang...but what can I say? I'm at my best when I'm busy. So, to chart it up:
-Untitled Withdrawal Fic (finish this month)
-End of Emrys Rising (begin this month)
-Tar Monsters from Mars (finish for Halloween)
-Radically Inverted Morality
-The Boy Who Broke the World
:Merlin Art Fest:
Nice. Lots on my plate. I like it.
Please check all that you'd be interested in
I just realized I spelled it "Horror Fesr", lol. Oh well.
Also, if you wouldn't mind sharing it on your journal to see if anyone else is interested? This poll is open to everyone! Thank you!
Surprise update to LJ app to support iPhone 5! W00t! It's lovely!
Also, suddenly pumped out like 4k words yesterday when I've barely managed anything all month. Finally on the path to progress? I sure hope so, especially since I'm in process of getting ready to move and that sort of thing can easily side-track progress in...well, anything.
