 So, I'm writing a YA fantasy novel in the fantasy genre. Basically it’s about a young swordswoman who goes on a quest to save her fiancé from this mysterious curse that infected him. Yeah, I like my gender role reversals. It’s believed that witch enchanted a magical beast to spread a curse. On her quest, she runs into and befriends a woman who studies magical creatures, and believes there’s more to it than a witches enchantment. The two of them go on a journey to unravel the mystery, and along the way, they realise maybe they like other girls more. All this happens while trying to stop the white, privileged knight, thought of as a hero by the people, from getting to “the beast” so he can kill it for his own ego. I’ll post some of it when I’ve done more, because I would like feedback, and for people to tell me about anything problematic with the story. 

EDIT: Here's a bit more info: It takes place in a kingdom called Vanesia. The dragons migrate every winter to an island filled with caves. When they leave for the Island, it's a sign that winter is coming, so farmers harvest crops at this time in preparation for the winter. The people from rural areas hold a festival at this time, called the Dragon Festival, where they sell goods from their farm, so the dragons are good on an economic level. So when winter comes and the dragons are still around, problems start to happen. It's around this time the mysterious cursed beast start roaming around. Some say it's been enchanted by witches, and have used it as an excuse to go on a witch hunt. However, the woman who studies dragons and other magical creatures thinks there's more to it than that. She believes the dragons’ strange behaviour and the curse are somehow connected. 

The swordwoman, who’s nobility, knows the knight who’s after also after the cursed beast. The knight is now convinced that it is an enchanted (that’s slowly becoming the common belief) and heads after it and assures everyone he'll slay it. But the swordswoman thinks if it is a dragon, then the answers, or at least more clues, would be found at the dragons’ abandoned winter home. So, these two ladies of Romanian heritage meet and team up to figure what’s happening. And they go on this journey together.

I at least want to  try finally getting the ideas I've had in my head for a fantasy narrative, and the brief plans I've written out, into a novel next month. I think it will at least be a step forward. So, I'm feeling incredibly nervous and excited at the same time about doing this. I'd love to know if other people are participating this year, so I can follow what you're writing, or if you participated in previous years, and what your experiences were like with that.

I hadn't read or written any poetry for a nearly a year. I just felt flat and uninspired when it came to poetry. But, after recently reading T.S Eliot's Four Quartets, my interest in poetry is coming back.  He's style is so beautiful and brilliant. I love how combines many different kinds of thought into his works. And I also love how he says so many profound and inspiring things without it ever coming of as clichéd or heavy-handed. 

This is one of my favourite lines:

Last season's fruit is eaten And the fullfed beast shall kick the empty pail.
For last year's words belong to last year's language
And next year's words await another voice.

It reminds me not to dwell on the mistakes and difficulties of last year, and focus on making the most of this year.  
Now I've been thinking up new ideas and I will start writing poetry again soon!

 I wish I could participate in the upcoming, [info]fma_ladyfest. But I'm too occupied with other things at the moment. I'm writing a script for uni at the moment about two girls who go to acting school, become BFF and help each other become better actors. It's doesn't sound or feel too exciting at the moment. I need to work on the character dynamics. I feel as though I don't have a very firm grasp on them yet. 

I read all available volumes of Pumpkin Scissors, but I've procrastinated on posting my opinions on it. Basically, it is awesome and Alice Malvin is the greatest. Female characters don't often get to play the part of the very idealistic, yet strategically challenged hero. I love the great reversal of roles in this manga, with Alice as the brave and reckless herione, with Randel being the more patient and practical one. I absolutely adore the fact he hero-worships Alice. He follows her around like a puppy dog and becomes enthusiastic about war relief because of her. I just love him so much. <33 I can definitely see where the comparison between this series and FMA. They're both very hopeful narrative excellent world-building and government conspiracies. Unfortunately, we have to wait a long time to learn about the conspiracy, but I firmly believe IT WILL BE WORTH THE LONG, LONG WAIT. 

I've decided I really need to re-watch the whole series of Princess Tutu when things settle down a little. It's been so, so long since I've watched it all. I miss it and feel obligated to watch my forever show in its entirety for the fourth time.

I don't know how much time I'll have to hang out on LJ when once I start uni again, which is in two weeks. So, I thought I'd take some requests.

You can request either a fic or meta on a character(s) from any of my main fandoms. A prompt would be helpful if you're requesting fic.

A little while ago I had a very bizarre and vivid dream. In fact it was probably the most vivid dream I've had in a long time. I've had a vague idea for a story for a while now and it started coming together for me through this dream. There were three people traveling together in fantasy world that had both magic and futuristic technology. They consisted of a dorky, nervous guy who could use magic, but wasn't very good at it, a lady who was the snarky technological expert of the group and the awesome, non-nonsense lady leading them who was very competent with magic and liked to tease dorky guy. They were thieves and they breaking out of prisons and doing all kinds of crazy shit.

I know I'm weird for having these kind of dreams! But anyway, I'm going to try and turn into a story. I might post it at some point and get some feedback.

I've been feeling sick lately and I losing my appetite, but I'm starting to feel better now.

I'm behind on a few things. I really need to finish some fic I started. I am still working on a Rue and Ahiru drabble and a Youko/Rakushun fic I worked on last week.

I just wanted to say thank you to all the people who commented on the Holiday Love Meme. Those messages really meant a lot to me. 
I love all of my LJ friends so much. <333

Also, happy birthday [info]angelchan_2004! I hope you have a wonderful day, my friend. <333
