Trapped behind the barrier and fearful of further human attacks, we retreated. Far, far into the earth we walked, until we reached the cavern's end. This was our new home, which we named... “HOME.” As great as our King is, he is pretty lousy with names.



Fearing the humans no longer, we moved out of our old city, HOME. We braved harsh cold, damp swampland, and searing heat... Until we reached what we now call our capital. “NEW HOME.” Again, our King is really bad at names...?



Inside NEW HOME is the largest academy of the Underground. But what really makes the school stand out is there's a private club that the Student Council members go to where they pull swords out of magic and duel each other. But for what purpose? That place is called...“DREEMURR ACADEMY.” As expected, our King is atrocious with names.

There's no way I'm going to trust myself with my New Year's Resolution of "writing more", "fill the year with Undertale fanfics and other goodies" and "start and finish Rosetale", so hopefully, this'll actually help me. I've pledged Modest!

Fandom Stuff to Do

- Finish MSTing Gabriel's Inferno and make revisions
- Write letter for Rare Pair Fest
- Brainstorm for Season of Kink (and remember to post your card since you've been keeping it for a while)
- Consider PMMM Non-Canon Ship Challenge as a way to improve art skills (and maybe a few ficlets too)

Gabriel's Inferno takes the highest priority atm. I'm almost done! :D

Zar started a screencap adventure of Mato's translation of Mother 1. I'm so happy! ;;

Pimping my friend Sara's novella!

Want some slice-of-life mother/daughter relationships inspired by the likes of Beverly Cleary, Ann M. Martin and Cynthia Voigt? Then this might be for you~ ;D

I want to thank everybody for your kind words regarding Uncle Ricke, including those who responded to my comment on Das Sporking. Your support means a lot to me and my family, and now Ricke is in a better place. He'll always be loved and remembered! ♥♥♥

I've been taking Freddie outside a lot so he could play with this adorable little Shih-Tzu named Abby. She belongs to this cute little girl who lives in the same neighborhood as I do. :o A few days ago, a Maltese named Fifi ran away from home, and Dad and I worked a really long time to snip her mats out. She's so cute and she wouldn't stop kissing us! She's so well-behaved too, she never tried to squirm or run away while we groomed her. Her owner was really happy I took care of the mats for her, and hopes she and Fifi could see me again soon.

After years of boycotting, I finally succumbed and got a Facebook. Bleeeeeeeeeeegh. The good news is I got to reunite with one of my oldest friends, at least! I'm primarily using FB as a way to contact family and animal shelters and posting pictures of pets, so don't expect a whole lot of fandom stuff there, if at all. FB already hates me and has "temporarily blocked" me from liking books/movies/music/etc. Excuse me for being cultured, FB. :P

My sleep schedule's messed up again and I'm tired. Actually interacting with the neighbors makes me want to curl up and hide because I feel so socially awkward. Help. D:

Remember that fake first chapter to my fake novel from last year's April Fools? Today, I'm bringing you the first chapter of the real novel I'm actually writing. :P

Bear in mind this is a first draft, so a lot of things will be changed in the final version. Like Hemingway said, first drafts are always shitty. That said, I'm open to critique, questions, suggestions and whatnot so I can improve the story before publication. :3 "The Great Phantasmo" is a place-holder name, so I may replace it with something better. But he's later revealed to be the same person as Marius, just hiding under another alias. :P The Robert Heinlein musical mentioned in this chapter is actually something my grandfather tried to start on Broadway, and it being rejected by Richard Rogers and why is a true story. Unlike in my novel however, the musical never got performed. :( The lyrics Ann sings are what my Dad remembers from one of the songs.

With those little notes out of the way, onto the fun!

This stops being a children's book as soon as attempted murder and toy violence is involved. Whoops. )

Next chapter, we see what happened to Raggedy Ann and are introduced to our main villain, Dr. Medlock. From now on, the chapters switch between Andy's journey to find her (and dealing with Medlock's assistant Phantasmo/Marius) and Ann surviving the lab. Don't worry, everything's still third-person. :)

Stardust writer Neil Gaiman reveals how Gone With The Wind kept his refugee cousin alive during WWII.

In this video, best-selling writer Neil Gaiman reveals how his cousin, Helen, smuggled the book Gone With The Wind into the Warsaw Ghetto during World War Two. She would read the novel at night and tell girls in the ghetto what had happened the morning after. The story gave him a personal insight into how writers can offer an “escape” from suffering.

Gaiman has written an exclusive piece on his trip to Syrian camps for Yahoo. It is contained within this article here.


I want me and my books to be like this for people someday. ;;

I almost teared up reading about Ayman and everything he does for the Syrian refugees. What a wonderful, wonderful person. ♥

Here's a list of all my unfinished fanfiction and plot bunnies! Bear in mind that if a story has a title, it's definitely not its final one. I'm just naming them based off what their filenames are called.

I don't understand how so many men can share their bodies and be so intimate when they don't truly love the woman that they're with... how they could not want to be a part of their own child's life! That's one of the reasons I just couldn't bring myself to marry Jessiebelle (aside from the fact that she was a psychopathic bitch who kept me locked in a torture chamber). ~James in "Family Matters" by Cori Falls

Trying to recall the last time a guy ever described sex as "sharing their bodies" with someone... nope, I got nuthin'.

I made a wise decision to finish a scene in my novel before reading the latest 50 Shades chapter Gehayi and Ket were sporking, which cheered me up immensely. Even E.L. James can't piss me off for long when I've made progress on my own work. :3 I've been trudging through that scene for a while, but now it's finally finished. ♥

My goal is to finish the first chapter of my novel before the end of January. Which I'm looking forward to sharing with you guys. :3 From that point on though, you'll probably only get snippets here and there. I don't want to give too much away... I intend to publish this, after all. :o But I hope you'll like what I'm coming up with so far. I could use all the support I can get!

Speaking of sporking, I've been tallying counts for a Sonic badfic called "Manipulated Love." The MST won't be finished for a long time, but I think I can do a dissection of it first, [livejournal.com profile] ficbitches style. We'll see...

Also, I've been listening to the Frozen soundtrack a lot. Seriously, I think it's become one of my favorite Disney movies. ♥

Yay, feeling like a sack of garbage is fun. I've been struggling with sleep problems again, and it figures that the day I finally have enough energy to start my final paper for history class, Mom had to be super bitchy and get in a fight with me and Dad, so it made me feel too miserable to concentrate on even starting it. Fuck. I just went to talk to a counselor and managed to contact Dad, he says he might be able to help me with my essay. Guh. I just want the day to end and my paper to go poof.

Anyhoo, made my [dreamwidth.org profile] areyougame claims:

December 2 - Pokémon Conquest, Oichi: Karaoke – Occasionally, she and Jigglypuff liven things up with a bit of song.
December 6 - Pokémon, Any: legendary pokemon – unexpectedly loves ear scritches
December 17 - - Pokemon, Serena/Shauna: first kiss - feels like watching fireworks.
December 18 - Serena/Emma: affection - Emma has a crush on Serena, and tries to figure out how to tell her.
December 24 - Amnesia: The Dark Descent, Alexander/Daniel: fairytale au - the big bad wolf comes to feast on your heart.

I'm so rusty on Conquest, but thankfully, fic only needs to be at 100 words, so a quick overview shouldn't hurt. It's the Amnesia one that'll probably have me digging my own grave. :/ I have such a creepy plotbunny for that particular prompt though, and I couldn't resist. :o Hint: involves wine and meat.

I wonder if there'll be interesting treat prompts for Yuletide this year.

Ugh, back to feeling like crap.

I don't know if it's just me, but something about the term "manpain" rubs me the wrong way.

I've read the fanlore entry for it, and I don't think I quite understand it. What's the difference between manpain and legitimate angst of a male character?

I understand that fridging is a problem. ("Hi! I'm a female character, and I only exist to die/be raped/be tortured/forced to watch the Oogieloves just to make my man angst!") People who use their shitty past as excuses to be douchebags and/or constantly brood suck. And you know what we called it? We called it "wangst." People who whine and make someone else's tragedy all about them? Also wangst.

I dunno about you, but I always preferred "wangst." "Manpain" as a term kind of makes me feel uncomfortable, because it feels, well... sexist?

Suppose a guy character grieves for a girl character who is actually well-developed and exists more than a plot device to "make him sad." Is it still manpain?

I just feel like the definition of manpain has the potential to become as blurry and misused as "Mary-Sue" is these days. Your name doesn't have to be Alixanndrea Serenity Rose Tachikawa and be half-unicorn/half-elf/half-dragon/half-demon/half-angel and have a super traumatic past where your dad left you to be beat up by hamsters. Nope. Just be female, have blonde hair, and have at least one thing remotely interesting about you. There, you're a Mary-Sue. And if you're a guy, the smallest amount of sadness or temporary self-pity (let's face it, all of us have felt sorry for ourselves at least once in our lives) is dismissed as manpain.

Now I know... there's no such thing as miracles.

Regardless of the revelation, Marius still believed. No matter what he repeated to himself, he still hoped. He'd pray for a miracle like a diver for an air pocket; idealism was like breathing to him, and it wasn't something he could give up no matter how hard he tried to change. Like a diseased thing, he'd keep clinging to the idea that maybe a miracle would finally happen and prove him wrong. Of course it never came, of course he knew better, and of course he couldn't stop hoping. For that, he loathed himself, more than he would than if he had been born cynical in the first place. Disappointment was the only thing he was certain of anymore.

Hey guys! Holiday madness has gotten me busy, and I've been working my ass off on Yuletide. But I made it before the deadline, and I'm a happy soul. And I got a gift! Now I just have to wait for reveals, nom.

I still have my friend's fic to write before Christmas, of course, but at least I finally started it. I'll be sure to finish it before Christmas!

I've been playing Neopets again, so if you want to Neofriend me, my account is "shamanicshaymin" and we could get up to madness over there. :3 *sniffle* I want a Poogle, a Cybunny and a Draik.

I've been pondering this while watching Disneycember over at TGWTG. Would anyone be interested if I posted my thoughts on the Pixar films? I'd do Disney movies too, but it's been ages and years since I've seen most of them, so they're not fresh on my mind. Pixar, on the other hand, I'm confident enough with. And hey, it's something to fill my journal with, nomnomnom~ ♥

I've been playing lots of "Harvest Moon: Animal Parade"! Morrie recc'd it for me after I played the original on the SNES, and boy oh boy, is it addicting~ ♥ I'm on the fifth and final bell, so I'm trying to make friends with everybody. I'm also wooing the Wizard, and got three hearts with him right now. ♥ I also like Jin though, and god, Luke is hot. Owen's not bad either, and I'm making friends with Julius. I think I'm gonna marry the Wizard this game, though. Nomnomnomnomnom~ ♥ He's so sweet. He says that it's "funny" that I always come visit him, but tells me that he enjoys having me around. Awww.

I have a white rabbit named Angel, who's at Level 3 when it comes to performing tricks. I want to upgrade my house so I can make more room for pets, like the black cat that lives near the church. I'd love to adopt a panda, but I'd feel absolutely awful if I left the mom or cub behind. ;; Some pets I don't think I'll have room for but I visit anyway, and a few I've mentally assigned names for. For example, I call the bears near the Goddess Spring "Eleanor" and "Merida," respectively.

I can finally ride my sheep, Mei. I wanted to name it "Chirin" but I absently typed "Mei" instead. Whoops. When I get my first goat, I'm naming it "Gabu" for irony. But dear lord, it feels so good to finally have a better transportation method than running in circles everywhere and wasting time.

I'm getting into the habit of turning all of my herbs into tea. Everytime I tell myself that I'm going to cook, a part of me wishes I could make crystal meth. Jimmy showed me the first two episodes of "Breaking Bad" so it's all his fault. >(

I can't wait to have silkworms~

I'm going to relax for the rest of November, then when December comes, I'll start my Yuletide fic. I want to finish it and have it beta'd as soon as possible so I don't have to worry about last-minute stress, and I'll have time left to write my overdue present for my friend Rachel~ ♥
