[Fire Emblem Heroes] fic: The Narrow View Through the Mask (oneshot)

Hey, I wrote FEH fic~. I've entertained writing about Soren (and various events he shows up in, like the hair gauntlet) but the timing has already passed for each, so that never happened. Timely writing, what's that? But hey look, a different FEH fic happened, the last fic I finished in 2018.

Title: The Narrow View Through the Mask
Fandom: Fire Emblem Heroes
Words: 2,530
Summary: Alfonse runs across Bruno, but it's not the Bruno he knows.
Notes: A treat for zynnser for [community profile] yuletide 2018, who requested Alfonse meeting Brave Veronica's brother. I also had fun having Alfonse wear Bruno's mask, just like what I have him doing in game. 8D

[World Trigger] fic: Doorway (oneshot)

I reread all of World Trigger from the beginning and finished watching the last part of the anime in my canon review. Have to say I still adore the series a lot, and I'm glad it's back from hiatus! Wishing the mangaka the best of health.

Title: Doorway
Fandom: World Trigger
Words: 3,511
Summary: Everyone thinks Arashiyama Jun has a dog. But he doesn't. Not really.
Notes: Written for Puimoo for [community profile] yuletide 2018. Tachikawa/Arashiyama. Petshop of Horrors!AU, but explained using World Trigger terms. Contains self harm typical of Petshop of Horrors for contract violation.

Happy New Year~

Looks like this will be my final post of 2018! I was hoping to finish up a fic to post before 2018 ended, but the story kind of exploded on me, so it's going to take me longer to finish. I might have to separate it into a few parts to post once I'm done. It's yet another addition to the New Horizons collection, this time an AU of Grisia reuniting with Roland before v1 events. :3 I've finished a good chunk of the fic (including the ending) but not the climax, ahahah.


I commissioned a Soren plushie from Kitty Cay (so talented)! I asked for the Radiant Dawn version, along with a tome. :3 He was made in the style of Fire Emblem Hero sprites, haha. So adorable. You can even pose him~. He's also very soft. I really hope that Soren will get some sort of alt in FEH. Radiant Dawn version please! I like his RD outfit a lot more than his Path of Radiance one that features sandals and too many layers. I'd love an RD alt, or a seasonal alt... Dagger throwing Soren please. Or a dragon Soren.

I also finally unlocked his spirit in Smash Brothers!

It's just too bad that he's only a novice spirit. I'm still going to use him anyway. The main spirits I'm using right now are Lilina, Ashnard, and Soren. :3


Also randomly checked out this series called Voice of Fox on Crunchyroll. It's adapted from a Chinese webcomic, and the content and style of humor really makes it evident. I feel that several webcomics have a similar style of humor that can sometimes be too over the top. :') Still, it's a fun series. Not very high quality, but the singing is nice (if only Hu Li had more than one song. At least he sings a new song in the last episode, haha). Man, this show reminds me of all the idol series in the past that I liked, like Full Moon wo Sagashite, Shoujo Shounen, and Charisma Doll. All of them feature the main character having to keep something a secret. :'D (Oh dear, reminds me of that Shaman King idol fic I started but never finished.) Anyway, I've always liked idol shows, so this was definitely a fun guilty pleasure despite the poor quality. It's full of drama. Like, seriously full of drama. It's like watching a trainwreck sometimes. I went to read the webcomic after this, and it's actually pretty different. I feel the anime dialed up the drama, hahaha, but both are dramatic, and Hu Li has pretty bad luck all the time. The anime has a more centralized plot though.

My next posts will be my Yuletide fics~.

Manga, Fire Emblem Cipher

Some manga I bought over the past few months (not all pictured...uh, need to find the rest). I also need to find room for everything. :') I have other miscellaneous stuff I bought over 2018 that I'll be organizing over the next few days.


Zero got his own spinoff. :'D Also that spinoff for those criminals (always pictured as a silhouette) from Detective Conan is pretty funny. Now they will be known as Hanzawa-san, hahaha. I also picked up Pinpon Rush by Minami Maki, since I did enjoy Seiyuu Ka except for the ending. Though this series ended pretty early so it might not be all that developed. Kind of curious to see La Corda d'Oro return with a college story. It's been so many years. :') (I feel like a lot of old series are returning with continuations...) Akatsuki no Yona fanbook! Happy to see that it's larger than normal manga. I finally bought the last two volumes of Usotsuki no Lily. I liked it a lot in the beginning (especially the humor) but didn't care for some of the stuff near the middle. But I did enjoy her next series, Kamisama no Ekohiiki. Might be time for a reread to get the most out of the ending. I also picked up volume 1 of the pocket edition of Kara no Teikoku, to go along with v2 and 3. Still one of my favorite series. Great to complete my Japanese collection of it some more (I already have it in Chinese and English).

Also got two guidebooks for Fire Emblem Cipher since I've been curious about those cipher cards. Since it's hard to buy the actual cards, I thought an artbook or guidebook would be nice since I'm not actually going to play the card game. I just want the cards. The artbooks are super limited though... so guidebooks it is for now. I picked up volume 3 and 5 because they have some Path of Radiance and Radiant Dawn stuff in them.

Yuletide and some anime ramblings

Happy holidays everyone!

Yuletide fics are live~. I managed to finish the treat I was working on super last minute (it doubled in length) and posted it right around when the fics were about to go live. I realized I didn't even have a title so came up with one just as I was about to post. The result was a title that's very similar to another fic of mine, whoops, when these stories aren't even from the same fandom. Interesting what my mind defaults to.

I stayed up to read my gift but haven't gotten about to reading any other fics yet. I received a lovely story about Azazel and Mugaro~

Vow So Deep (1170 words) by Anonymous
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: 神撃のバハムート | Shingeki no Bahamut | Rage of Bahamut (Anime)
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Azazel (Shingeki no Bahamut), Rita (Shingeki no Bahamut), Mugaro | El
Summary:

I vow these boughs will never break.
Azazel discovers himself attached.



The other day, I wrote up some rambling thoughts about some anime I'm currently watching, but like everything I do lately, I just let that sit around... Now I have to update it given the new episodes that have already happened since, pft.

Thunderbolt Fantasy, Slime anime, Bunny-sempai, Ace Attorney s3, SAO, Tsurune, Honda-sanCollapse )

Yuletide

Yay, I managed to turn in my Yuletide fic, and it's not the deadline yet! And while I'd like to revise it some more, I can live with the current state it's in, too. Phew, I almost thought I wouldn't manage to write anything. Canon took forever to review (I have... 21k of notes now, pfft) and I came up with eight different ideas for my assignment, but I couldn't get past 500 words for any of them. All these stories going nowhere... One of them is sitting at around 450 words.

In the end? I wrote a completely different story that doesn't exactly follow any of the ideas, pffft. (It does take some tidbits from two of them, I guess). If I'm not buried by work next week, maybe I'll try to write a treat from one of those other ideas. =x I also marked some other letters I might like to try my hand at. Though I should also go and edit some of those LSK fics I have sitting around instead, as I'd like to be able to post them before 2018 ends, haha.

I'm so used to writing LSK fic (1st person too) that changing gears was hard. But I think I'll play in this sandbox some more while canon is still fresh in my mind.

Oh oh, and my writer has turned in their assignment too! \o\ I have a gift! :DDD

Also, Chihayafuru 205. ljas;dfsa;dfa; That hug killed me. I teared up a bit... :'D

Now, in Fire Emblem Aether Raids news, I'm definitely in the faction of not liking the boosts that the mystic heroes provide. If a mythic hero shows up that I like, maybe I'll add a mythic hero to my AR team then, but for now, I'm going without because I don't want to change the blessings on my core team. (I use this team for arena too!) But ahhhh, I was only missing 20 lift to make it to the next Tier. OTL So close, but so far... I just had to lose one unit fewer in my 2nd to last match to make it. Time to try again this week. :')

FEH Aether Raids



I am surprised that I'm actually doing pretty well in Aether Raids! :3 Top 3k this time! Got myself a throne of each color! \o\ I got lucky last week that I (just barely) made it to the next tier, which allowed me to start a tier above a lot of other players this week, since the points reset to the beginning of the tier each time.

Still, I find that I always leave the AR matches until right before the daily reset, so I guess I'm not liking the mode that much. Too much pressure. :'D And people get to watch replays of my team against theirs!! OTL It feels so terrible when I let my offense team get wiped out... and my defense team needs a lot of work. I'm just going to focus on offense for now...

3.0 is dropping tomorrow. It'll probably bring some changes to AR? No idea. But hey, I got my thrones, I'm good even if I never make it to top 3k again, haha. Before this new mode, I was very focused on Arena, but now not so much because it's been a hassle switching my units' skills back and forth for AR and Arena. Now they're just stuck with their Aether Raids skills. I'll probably try again for a better ranking in Arena when I have easier bonus units to use. At least, I got several crowns already~

I also currently have no orbs. I am not ready for new Tellius banners. (But please, do give us a another Soren!!) I guess I still have my emergency stash with all the maps I haven't beaten yet for whenever a unit I really want shows up. :'D

As for Smash, my progress in unlocking new characters is slow going. I'm dying so much. XD; But hey, I got several Fire Emblem spirits already~, including Lilina, Julius, and Navarre. I'm hoping I'll run into Soren soon! World of Light has been hard since I'm limited to a small roster still. Haven't unlocked my main (Ness) in that mode yet.

Time to Smash

Got myself a Switch. So far, I only have Mario Kart. Just picked up Smash today. o/ I'm looking forward to Fire Emblem: Three Houses, but there's barely any news about it yet. (I should finish Fates and Echoes first)



So, I did write every day in November, but some days it was only just until the 444 word count goal that 4thewords sets. So nope, didn't manage 1k a day. I did make good progress on some oneshots to various completion levels, but they're all in a messy state. Closest to completion is That Power Forever Gone and That Person Now Returned, both at around 6k....aaaand I can't really say they're all that close to completion. Just closer than the other fics. I'll be taking a break from them to focus on my Yuletide fic though.
