Epilogues are only for the victors



Hi there! If you are reading this you probably stumbled over my journal. Anything you see on a public setting is fandom related. The stuff under lock is generally my personal thoughts, opinions, and apropos of nothing. If, for some reason, you think you would be interested in the latter, feel free to comment to me. I just want to spare otherwise uninterested people, not start a secret clubhouse to overthrowing the world. Although that would be fun to do in my spare time...

[Avatar] Inherit the Wind 1/?

Hiding this here because I haven't finished anything in so long, it's killing me. Progress, whatever. Ugh.

Title: Inherit the Wind

Genre: Gen/Adventure/Character Study
Warnings and pairings: Post-series with spoilers for everything, especially the finale. Use of supplemental non-official “canon” of the card game and fanon theories.

But when she discovers she is a descendant of the Air Nomads, the chance to explore her newfound heritage dredges up secrets hidden for a hundred years and may force her to confront everything she left behind when she joined the Kyoshi Warriors.

Thought of You

So what do you get when you combine animation + music + dance? Princess Tutu! But also this, which is gorgeous, and far more than the sum of its parts.




Doctumentary shows he also worked as an animator on the Iron Giant as if I didn't need to justify my admiration for him already.

[Adventures of Sinbad] Evolution (1/2)

Suffering from a death flu is a good enough excuse as any to look through my early writings. This is (thankfully) the only story that seemed to survive on the internet. And wow, sixteen year old self:
-you're adorably pretentious
-and redundant
-mostly pretentious because I can totally see you using that awkward Latin there
-...the sense of humor remains just as immature now as ever
I'm just going to leave this here the next time I need to laugh at myself and my creative endeavors.


Title: Evolution
Series: The Adventures of Sinbad
Spoilers/warnings: set in the magical alternate second season that had Maeve and Mustapha
Wordcount: 20,700 (jeez, I wish writing came this easily now)
Summary: Maeve and Firouz have to step into the realms of science and magic in order to stop a madman who plans on destroying them both.

Here for posterity (and for shame, a little bit) )

[Buffy/Runaways/YJ] Time to Face the Music

Title: Time to Face the Music
Series: Buffy: the Vampire Slayer/Runaways/Young Justice
Spoilers/warnings: Warped AU of the Buffy-verse where things diverged with the Pride’s kids and Young Justice crashing the dimension. So Buffy didn’t die, Bart ended up being the Key, Anya terrifies Chase after infidelity talks, and Kon is still super “mature.”
Wordcount: 4,023
Summary: There are no small parts, only small actors and people from alternate dimensions who sometimes go off-stage.
Author’s note: For [livejournal.com profile] poor_choices, who bought me in the [livejournal.com profile] help_haiti auction like the cheap hooker I am. Just keep telling yourself it was for a good cause.

[Avatar] Flint and Spark, part 1

Another unspoken resolution I have this year is to stop being an over-analytical whiner and just write. Which primarily focuses on how I have no pacing for longer stories to save my life and thus don't attempt them. TIMELY EXPOSITION IS MY NEMESIS. I have probably written this chapter over twenty times, posted and deleted it twice, and will likely never finish the story. But whatever, I am posting it now, considering it done, and moving on without constantly re-editing the damn thing this is a lie, I bet I will wake up and fix a dozen things looking at it again.


Title: Flint and Spark (1/?)
Series: Avatar: The Last Airbender
Spoilers/Warnings: Set after the finale, so all canon events are fair game.
Wordcount: 8,783
Summary: Five years later a tenuous balance is on the brink of collapse, ready to send the nations back to war. Toph can stop the conspiracy, but with her only help being the manipulative exile, Princess Azula, her enemies may not be the biggest problem.
Author's notes: If you're brave enough to read this mess, concrit would also be adored.

[Princess and the Frog] Go Down Easy

I thought Dr. Facilier was an interesting villain but his motivation was really unspecific, especially since he was a foil to the princess with the most concrete goals. I guess it makes sense though. A charlatan is all flash and image, but no substance. much like my writing

Title: Go Down Easy
Series: The Princess and the Frog
Spoilers/warnings: Mentions voodoo but since Disney isn’t 100% accurate (gasp! shock!) and my research is conflicting/spotty I've mostly tried not to sound terribly ignorant, although if there are any mistakes I would appreciate correction.
Wordcount: 1,260
Summary: Pre-series. The Shadowman before he was even a man, but a child. And he too was taught that hard work and dreams would make his life better.

Any time tomorrow a part of me will die and a new one will be born )
