Loveless Drabble ~ "Ritsuka's Birthday Present"
Just a little something I'd mentioned earlier. This'll be posted to my Fanfictionnow.com account as well, later on. I think I may start posting them and linking them here for some convenience.

Anime: Loveless
Rating: PG, for suggested adult themes
Genre: Romance, Shonen-ai
Type: Non-challenge, drabble
Characters: Soubi/Ritsuka
Word Count: 279
Summary: Ritsuka and Soubi celebrated Ritsuka’s birthday in a slightly different way. This is a small glimpse at the morning after.
Disclaimer: I don't own Loveless, obviously.

A/N: My first Loveless fanfic, which is a drabble. It’s not the only one in the works, but stands alone. Written in a sort of revelation that Ritsuka and I share the same birthday: December 21.

I would just like to thank vulpecular for correcting my spelling on Soubi's words. ^.^

Updates n' Stuff
Let's see, I posted chapter 3 of Koi Bakarini to FFNow... had to fight the damned thing to let me post... ^.^;

Did some random shotty Ritsuka doodle in pen and watercolor among a bunch of angst in my sketchbook...

Worked on the Loveless Christmas piece some more... and need to edit Ritsuka's Birthday Present blerb to post it. Wrote a little on Juvenile Orion 2 (forgot what the subtitle was for it...) and, yeah. Did some more plotting for things. I need to stop plotting and just start writing. I also badly wanna do more Loveless sketches... but I can't draw well which just depresses me... -.-'

Koi Bakarini chapter two has been posted on fanfictionnow.com

Chapter three is written and edited, but needs to be moved from Bunny onto the home laptop and then posted to EftW and FFN.com

I began writing a fluffy Loveless Christmas piece on Monday, involving Youji getting his own game cartridge from Soubi for the game counsole at Soubi's so he'd stay away from Seimei's file, lollipops from Kio, and Natsuo getting a cook book from Kio. It also involves Zeros freaking out over snow, and Ritsuka being cute. ^.^ Unfortunately, it hasn't progressed very far since Bunny died on me while writing it. ^.^;

Well... on the car ride to the quarry this past weekend, I sketched a Natsuo headshot that I like, and worked on another one of me squirrel-boy and a naga. Day before yesterday I sketched a Youji that was crap. ^.^;

Koi Bakarini has been worked on bit-by-bit. I now know how I'm ending the third chapter, I just gotta get it written. A lot fo scene breaks in this one, as I decided to skip around and cover just about everyone. XP

Garggg
Okies... Well I worked on some computering with my artses on Y!. Got a Nii headshot cleaned up a little bit better... decided I hated what I had spent working on his lines and erased them all. So the headshot still is cruddy... and sketchy. Finally uploaded the base color for Tsume/Kiba piece. Cleaned up the naga and squirrel-boy I had done earlier, and got a few sketchy lines down that were acceptable enough to replace what I had had.

uhhm... yeah... I guess that's all I can remember to say...

artses and stuff
Wow... it's been a little while since I posted anything. XP

Anyways, I've got a new kitty Gojyo sketch to upload, one of Soubi, and one of Ritsuka that I finished today that I wanna get uploaded. I'm really happy about the Ritsuka one, it's like the third time I've worked on him and the first time I like what came out. ^.^

I also worked with Dimitri last night in an RP session. I love him, but I started loving him because he's loosely based on Soubi. XP

Doodley Doo
Well, I've been neglecting drawing practice 'cause I'm spending study hall time doing actual work, or in the art room trying to mass produce for the final report week after next. Yeah. Two and 1/2 projects in two weeks. Y'know what I'm buiding? The tail of the giant Jormungand, and the body. D'ya know how evil screen wire is? I walked out of that class looking like I was suicidal 'cause of all the cuts n' scrapes across my forearm.

But, I have completely finished the base coat of color for the Kiba x Tsume piece. I managed to fix Tsume's muzzle while working too. ^.^ I still haven't scanned the Nii headshot or the naga and squirrel. I still need to post Koi Bakarini chpt 2 on ffnow.c.... Yeah. I'm behind. I also need to finish my math HW before second period today. ^.^;

More Stuffs!
Well... I worked more on both Koi Bakarini and The Triumph of Vaasgar. I really like the dialogue flow in Vassgar, mainly because I usually suck at it, but Revensoft is so easy to write... ^.^

Koi Bakarini... eh, I still get stumped sometimes on that one. This chapter is exceedingly difficult. Because I have work around Hakkai not actually having a breakdown while having one at the same time in the opening scene... and then he starts hallucinating, which gets even more interesting... ^.^;

Oh yeah. And I doodled a younger lookin' Nii headshot in Spanish today. ^.^ And I'm working on coloring the Kiba and Tsume piece in YHG. Actually am almost dowe with the base coat... kinda sorta. Okay, not really. I've got most of Tsume done, if not all of him, and Kiba's jacket. But the hair and face and the fur around Kiba's hair is annoying. Rrrgly.

Current Mood: cheerful

Updatesness
Well, today was interesting... I tracked down a writer's of the future scholarship/money thing.. and began working on that one.

Basically, it's a story concerning a bonded pair (Revensoft the 'wolf' and his human Vaas(gar - as they put titles to the back of their names). I also worked out the titles, lol. And did some design on the councils. Basically, the plot is that Vaas is overthrowing the present king of the country/whatever, using Revensoft's aide. The wolf is afraid that Vaas will forget about his promise once the deed is done, and will become just as much of a tyrant as the last one. So Revensoft spends a lot of time mulling over the morality of man and Vaas in general. It's a mental piece I suppose... I like Revensoft and Vaas though. Vaas would so be a bishie... I really should track down a manga-style artist one day to partner with for doujin writing...

And I worked some more on Koi Bakarini. That one is getting harder and harder to write, simply because a lot of the build-up is Hakkai's thoughts... and if I extreme them too soon then it's crap, and if it's too slow it's crap, and if it's not in character it's crap, and, well... yeah. you get the idea.

I also did some ugly sketches that won't be going up on YHG. Still need to scan in my naga and squirrel boy, and submit Koi Bakarini chapter 2 at ffnow...

Randomnessssss
Welll... I got an email today from EftW stating that they'd put up the second chapter of Koi Bakarini. And remembered that I still hadn't submitted it other places. *feels really bummish now*

I sketched a random naga yesterday while RPing. and then attatched a lil' squirrel kid to his arm.. and now I really like the lil' squirrel anthro boy and not the naga. XP *needs to scan it*

Uhm... I also worked on Koi Bakarini chapter 3 a bit yesterday. Got the jest of it fleshed out, and worked on the entire 'before events'. So I now have a solid reference for that. Oh, and I actually started writing some too, lol. ^.^

Revamped Dean's character for Juvenile Orion: Henrico Highschool. *noddles* He gets a niiiice Babylonian lion now as a Darklore instead of an Arayashiki. *noddles* 'Tis very very cool.

I also decided that Alex gets to come back and be a bastard in JO:HH. And firmly decided that Travis does get flame wings under Anthony. And that yes, Matthew and Kiriel are dating.

Artses Updates
Did a sketch of Gojyo last night, and I computer colored it. It's posted in my account at Y!hostingGallery with most of my other male-centered art. The shading on the torso and the jacket needs some work. I'm most proud of his pants, actually. And his hair doesn't look too bad to me. ^.^

You'll probably need FireFox and have to disable Norton to view it the best.

I take no responsibility for what's on that site. It is an adult art site. *noddles* That's all the warning you get. ^.^

Sketchings
I've finished the RD of Koi Bakarini (love just because) chapter 2 and have mostly finished editing it. Does anyone wanna betta for characterization? They'd need to have the story explained to them and whatnot, but, yeah...

I sketched today in study hall. Got a crappy Kou from behind using a Genga (never sketch from a genga if you don't know the character that well), and a very weird lil' Gojyo. I also have a Kiba x Tsume that I'm proud of, even if it looks funny and needs work. I'll still probably post it in Y! anyways.

Juvenile Orion: Henrico Highschool
Well, okay, so it't not the first one that I was working on. But for the great future of that massive friend centered fic, I've plotted my fifth mind break form. *noddles*

Babylonian Zephyr aka Fire Zephyr aka Great Zephyr
Happens to be the strongest non-wild form available to the zephyrs
Completely furred in crimson, no traces of human hair remaining, slitted eyes, complete jaw structure and teeth of feline, feline ears with tufts, tips of tufts set aflame, black under-eye egyptian design sweeping up into swirls beside the eyes, feline claws and paws on hind feet, feline-anthro-hands with claws, tail.
preferred position is squatting on all fours, but can raise to hind legs for attacks
wingless; the classical zephyrs walked on the wind. but can summon crimson/red/burgundy feathered wings for looks.
a lot more cat-like in actions, mind degrading to that of a kitten-esque state, thereby distracted a lot more easily. (example being that I bound up to Kiriel and beg to scritched behind the ear. but I'd do that anyone 'cause Kiriel rocks!)
main techniques involve fire, mostly offensive, balanced between magic and physical
Babylonian Hell technique; five points of flame on a hand (one per finger), is thrown at an opponent, expanding into a rain of fire from the original five points.

Confused yet? Good. ^.^
