calliope_love: (Break/Liam: Angsty)
It's been a while, hasn't it? Well. I'm still here.

My mother died in June. I didn't feel like mentioning it then. I'm grieving, of course, and though I'm handling things far better than I could be, it's been rough. Much of my creative energy outside of my own work has gone into roleplaying with my friends over in PHDR, where I have quite a lot going on -- Modernverse Break and his Liam are both there now, as well as a female version of the Mad Hatter in human form, and I'm going to be bringing in some canon characters in the next several months. Gil is already in, and I'm working on a Break, and will be making an Alice. I've got a couple other more AUish characters I am developing as well.

Busy busy busy.

I have icons waiting to go up; I'm waiting until I have a sizeable batch. I've been writing fic, but it's mostly RP centric. A few canon ones are in progress or about to be started. But mostly, yes, roleplay. Writing and art are solitary pursuits, you see, and I've needed the support of my friends over the past six months, and so being involved in games with them is where my attention has been. But things are getting better, albeit slowly. I'll be more present here again, one day.

In the meantime, I hope you're all doing well. Be good.

Title: Heatwave
Rating: Nothing exciting here.
Disclaimer: Nope.

Summary: Most of you know by now that [livejournal.com profile] their_kingdom is my secretary. She betas my fic, discusses new chapters with me, and tolerates my ego, which is roughly the size of Manhattan and requires a lot by way of sacrificial offerings to keep it happy. But she does more than that, too. She tells me not to push when I should not be pushing. She acknowledges it when I go out of my way to be civil to people, even if it's not directed at her. She gets me books because they're honest and movies because I need to see them, and still comes to talk to me alone sometimes amidst all the brilliant people we know.

And so I have written her a fic for her birthday. I'm really rusty at the moment, so I don't think it's the best I can do. But I wanted it to be a fic just for her, and so it had to be a fic free of all the angst that's been weighing things down of late. It's not a fic about blindness or impending death or that stupid party. It's a fic about Break and Liam being Break and Liam on a day that wasn't overly notable. I believe I've succeeded in that, at least.

Length: 1,626


Having reached the conclusion that a fan was too much effort, Liam began honestly considering going to the washroom and sticking his head under the faucet in the sink. )

So last night the local Shelly told me I ought to get a plurk, so I did. I was promptly assaulted by a thousand flailing roleplayers.

...more like ten, yes, sure, but all at once it seems like more. They are a hyperactive bunch. XD

Anyway here you go. XP

Most of what I've been doing lately is RP. I mean that literally. Quite frankly, owing to an immensely stupid bout of personal brouhaha, I have no brain right now. I try to write and have several stories to work on, but I can't hold my focus, and I can't keep long-term plans in my brain. I'm using RP to keep my hand in and keep me from degenerating completely into a blob; it requires me to think, just on a much more...touch and go level. It is a blast. You can find all the logs I've been up to here, though the people who are interested probably already know this.

Also, [livejournal.com profile] tsutsuji, last night I very helpfully informed them you are plotting an evil!Liam and we already have some plans with him. pscycho!Jack wants to meet him. I told them to come harass you, but I don't know if they will. I am evil, too~ <3

Today I must work on some of the threads I still have going and make a few more icons for this Break. He and Shelly are getting up to shenanigans, you see, and we're going to work on that thread this weekend. They won't be icons of Break himself, though, so don't get too excited...actually, yeah, get excited. This is going to be a major plot point in his personal canon. Ohohohohohoho~

Most of you have probably seen [livejournal.com profile] metisket's fics when they post to the community. If you're like me, you ignore half to three-quarters of the fics that get posted to the community (not to mention fanfiction.net, blech) because you don't like most of these other pairings enough to wade through the schlock just to find a few good lines here and there.

Don't do that when Metisket posts. A couple of you like to tell me you fangirl and spaz over damn near everything I write. Well, I in turn fangirl over Metisket. The BEST Oz, I am telling you, and such a way with words — even the serious bits of writing make me twitch with glee half the time just from the phrasing. Not to mention the incredible "humor + oh god what is my life"ness that pervades these fics.

I drop everything when I notice a Metisket post, same as I do when the raws come out. Go. Read the fic. I order it.
