borealgrove: Shou and Saga wearing the same obi... for whatever reason. (Coordination)
EDIT 4: This entry was originally posted in three parts, but I nested the two other entries into this one when I later woke up. It seemed like the sensible thing to do. Oh, what a night.

I've had a wild week of writing, let me tell you. Most nights, I stayed up until or past midnight--and last night, I was up until about three. What can I say? When the inspiration strikes, you just have to get on board and ride it til it stops. Too bad my inspiration couldn't have chosen a more convenient time to kick in. What a jerk.

I'm writing this entry just after 1 am, with 5 minutes to go before A9's 13th anniversary live begins. It's being broadcast on NicoNico, and while I have timeshifted it, I want to watch at least a little bit of it live before I give in and go to bed. I love A9 so much, and it's amazing they're still going strong after 13 years!


Ohhhhhhhh shit the live is starting AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥


EDIT 1: It's been about an hour, and the live has not started yet. In order to amuse the ~3000 viewers already online (more keep arriving all the time), the broadcast staff are just playing all their PVs in order, and it's the most nostalgic fucking thing. Everyone is just sharing memories of the PVs and gushing over them, and it's been so long that I've spoken to other fans that it's really emotional. I love them so much.







The waterworks are going to go off sometime tonight, I can feel it. Nostalgia overload ♥

borealgrove: (Layabout)
I had quite the weekend, trying to get myself into a mood to write. Ha! Didn't quite work out the way I had planned (though things seem to be flowing a little better now). Our second escape room attempt of the month turned out much, much better than the first one, mainly because we had a better group (all six of us were pretty on the ball with figuring out the puzzles, and there was no naysaying-without-offering-alternative-ideas). We were so close to escaping, but didn't quite manage to get the last puzzle finished in time because we got stuck on one for a little too long in the middle. We're all hoping for an escape on attempt #3, in the final room of the establishment. It has a magic theme, so I'm 1000% down.

We went for pastries and tea at a Japanese café and then parted ways mid-afternoon. My brother and his girlfriend went off on their own (I think my brother was already contacting all his friends to try and set up a second escape attempt... it was his first escape room that day and he was hooked lol). One of my friends had a dinner to attend. My partner went off to a dodgeball meet. Me and my other friend killed a couple of hours not-quite-window shopping downtown, and then met my partner after his dodgeball had finished, for supper. I got to wear my new cat boots and use my new bag, which I had just finished sewing my skeleton cat patch on. jkdfnksdmla; So cute ♥

Anyway, Sunday was just me against myself. The most productive thing I managed was to get myself dressed to go buy milk, so that I could make pancakes to eat while I continued my Merlin rewatch (that is my usual pattern on Sunday mornings). Only three episodes left now until the end, which I am both looking forward to, and not. It wrecked me the first time, which was why I have never fully rewatched the series until now (I've mostly just rewatched the first two seasons, and some things here and there). But rewatching it in full, knowing what the ending is, what sort of twists are to come... man. Good thing I like laughing my butt off and also having my soul ripped out. Who doesn't!

The rest of that afternoon was spent trying to get myself to focus on writing, and not achieving said focus. I hammered out a small but solid start for the untitled ACBB fic, but not much else. I've managed to get some focus together today, but I have no idea if I will end up completing a minimum of 15K words by the end of the month for ACBB matching... not the end of the world if I don't manage this time. I'd rather drop out than rush. But I think, no matter when it is that I get it finished up, it'll be good :)

For now, I'm working on FS. It came first, so I intend to meet that chapter commitment before I truly dig into ACBB-fic.

It's really hard to believe that I just sort of gave up writing for nearly four years. It feels so natural to moonlight as a fic writer :p

Ah well. Back to the chapter, and my tea. Tonight I've had Chocolate Cake and Buddha's Blend.

I felt like yesterday was Friday... which made the workday today feel incredibly long. It was either that, or the fact that I was kept up (more or less willingly) until about 1:30 am last night because my partner and his friend (who was staying over) could not stop giggling and trying to scare me with ghost stories. I scare easily. I also start to act drunk if I'm too sleepy. Weird night.

We did get a very impressive thunderstorm though, and some green lightning flashes behind a wall of clouds, which I had definitely never seen before. This prompted some very lazy research with the help of google, where I concluded, after viewing one webpage, "yep... it's a thing".

I've finally settled on crossposting from DW to LJ; while I much prefer DW in general, there is still a large chunk of fandom left on LJ (or still figuring out the logistics of moving), so I'd probably miss a lot of fun if I stopped all activity on my LJ. Comments are open on both my journals, and I'll be checking friend posts on both sites, so... I think that's about it. See you wherever I see you!

My excellent plan for this weekend was to catch up on all my messages and then focus on starting the ACBB fic and getting a good chunk of FS chapter 11 written out. In short: not agreeing to do A Fun Thing with people. That being said, I've already agreed to an escape room tomorrow (this time I roped my brother and his girlfriend into our group, so we should avoid the massive stranger fail of the previous escape attempt). An escape room will probably lead to other activities like: going out for ice cream and/or supper, going shopping, and/or going to a board game cafe. Which are all things that spell less time spent on writing. I need to kick my butt into high gear. Maybe pull an all-nighter by getting hopped up on tea. Terrible idea. Great idea.

Played some Mass Effect 2 over supper (what kind of casual frickin day is this?), and Garrus still has not sent me information regarding his loyalty mission. I know it'll happen eventually, after I complete a handful of other, random missions but... come on. I want to start flirting with this Turian already. Throw me a bone Bioware! Interesting choice of words.

Finally, this webpage conforms perfectly to my interests: These are Truly Useful Cat Smileys!

I've gathered some cute cat smileys to use on Twitter and blogs! Happy cats, sad cats, pawing cats, content cats, determined cats, sleepy cats... I've collected lots★

Okay, that's enough out of me. Time for tea and crab apple writing mode.

...ah, what the hell. I'm making that into a damn tag.
