I've noticed that there a number of people on my friends of list that I don't know. I friend back as long as we've interacted before, and you tell me you're friending me.

Dear Yuletide Writer

[community profile] yuletide letter!

Dear Yuletide Writer,

Thanks for writing for me! Below is more information about my general likes and what I like about each fandom. However, please don't let this letter confine you if your muse comes up with something else. I look forward to your spin on the characters and the fandom. :3

[Dragalia Lost] fic: My Best Friend's Heart Was Broken So Now I'm Trying to Cheer Him Up

Parallels ran so smoothly~. Here's the fic I wrote!

Title: My Best Friend's Heart Was Broken So Now I'm Trying to Cheer Him Up
Fandom: Dragalia Lost
Words: 2,717
Summary: Ranzal thinks Luca got his heart broken by Aoi. It's all a misunderstanding, really, but Ranzal sets out to cheer Luca up. It includes sneaking into the kitchen together because food always makes everything better. And Luca always has the largest grins on those escapades. Ranzal/Luca
Notes: This was originally titled "Cheer Up" before I decided that since this was such a fluffy fic, I might as well give it a silly name, so I gave it a very light novel'ish name, ahaha. Written for [personal profile] kalloway for [community profile] parallelsfic 2019. Based off of Dragalia Life #116, the Newlywed Ninja, which can be read over here. The story also takes bits of inspiration from the Dragalia Lost castle stories, That Special Day Part One, Two, and Three, but the gist is that a bunch of them are preparing for three fake weddings in a wedding battle to see which wedding is better.

Some old new books: Royal Beast, Gong Hua, and a Sunken Moon doujinshi


Some new stuff I got last year and took pics of last year... but never posted here, I think? :'D (If I did, then eh, here's a second post about this stuff) I have a lot of photos like these around, whoops. Anyway, after I read ILTv5, I was in the mood to read/reread some Yu Wo stuff and remembered that I never did get around to reading this one. Was going to take pics of the cover but went digging through my files instead and found these that I already took. XD;;

Bought these last year. Pictured above:
*Royal Beast (王獸), a self published BL novel by Yu Wo from last August
*A Gong Hua illustrated storybook
*Sunken Moon doujinshi featuring Naerxi/Yui Tui

I've been accumulating several Sunken Moon doujinshi that I haven't read lately, now that Shui Quan has moved on from Jin Shi. I want more Jin Shi. :3;; But I never know if I'll end up liking another character a lot, so I've still been buying some Sunken Moon doujinshi here and there. Didn't buy the latest one though. Bit behind on S2, so I don't know those characters much at all...

3H and Dragalia

Finally got to the timeskip in 3H after 58 hours of gameplay... :'D I almost feel like I played a 58 hour long prologue. XDDDD Now the more traditional FE is starting, haha.

I guess I spent too much time running around returning lost items and fishing. Also didn't turn off battle animations. Probably should've done that after the first few battles, especially given how many paralogues there are. :') Too late... I also spent a lot of time wavering over decisions... like... who should be the dancer?? Took me an hour before I decided to make Linhardt the dancer. I lured him over from the Black Eagles. :') (He reminds me of Waver) Was deciding between Flayn, Linhardt, and Felix. (I'll have to steal Felix in my next route so he can be the dancer there XD)

Summer Luca is here in Dragalia Lost~. When I started playing DL more back in March/April, the gender ratio was pretty balanced, but right after that, it's been showcases of girls and more girls... lots of limited girls... Guess that's the way it goes for gacha eventually.

So, I've been 5 starring some of the four star guys to fill my roster instead. Started with Vixel! I'm glad Luca finally got an alt, even though it's a 4*... his kit doesn't seem half bad at least, and I could use a light axe. I 5 starred him immediately~. He has such a cute animation with a floatie falling down from the air. Then he spins...and gets dizzy. XD

Illusions, Lies, Truth v5

[community profile] parallelsfic gifts are live! I received a lovely Mayonaka no Occult Koumuin fic called Reading Abe no Seimei's Diary that includes a lot of small details that I adore. (I actually didn't shake gifts this time as the date kind of crept up on me... I kind of feel that made getting the email notification of my gift even better! What a lovely thing to wake up to~)

As for the fic I wrote, I'll be posting it here after reveals in a week or so. :3

I'm playing through Fire Emblem Three Houses sooo slowly. 50 hours into the game, and I'm not even halfway through... but I'm enjoying it a lot. The supports are pretty fleshed out, making the characters quite endearing. There are a lot of character interactions that have been making me flail, resulting in me taking tons of screencaps in case I want to use those tidbits in fic. I wonder if I'll ever get around to a 2nd playthrough... Hopefully if I do, it'd go a lot faster than my current one!


Now, this is also one reason I haven't finished the game yet! Illusions, Lies, Truth v5 was released this week! \o/ It's been over a year since Yu Wo released a new book. She's been absent from online spaces too, which was quite worrying. She does seem to be back and feeling better though, stating in the afterword of this book that maybe this break after having written for more than ten years was something she needed. I felt she returned with a strong entry! This book made me grin and laugh out loud tons of times while adding to the mystery and horror. I felt the first case Human Doll Contract established many of the main characters, but we still didn't know them that well, while the second case, In the Name of God, and this case about Jiu Ge are all about fleshing these characters out. I'm glad to see things from the first two volumes being revisited here.

[Bokura no Kiseki] fic: Remembrance

Title: Remembrance
Fandom: Bokura no Kiseki
Words: 314
Summary: When Minami uses magic for the first time, Hiroki remembers.
Notes: Just something I dug out from my iPad scribblings that I wrote during my last read of BnK. Was planning to make this a longer oneshot following Hiroki because gosh does her character speak to me but the writing ended here, so I guess this is it until my next Bokura no Kiseki marathon read.

Fire Emblem Three Houses


My game arrived! \o\ Thought I was getting it on July 30th, but it arrived much earlier than that, only one day after the game's release~

I'm so excited about it~. Have been watching a lot of trailers, from feeling somewhat indifferent about the school setting to being sold on the concept with the time skip, as probably what a bunch of other people felt too, from reactions I've seen. I'll have to see if the game lives up to expectations after playing it though! Gonna go with Blue Lions first. Dimitri intrigues me.

Got myself the Seasons of Warfare special edition. o/ Gamestop was out, so I had to order it elsewhere, or else I really wanted the freebie pins from Gamestop for preordering there. The special edition comes with a steelbook, an artbook, a soundtrack, and a calendar. The calendar seemed strange to include, but there's a pretty involved calendar system in the game, so it all makes sense!

[Legend of Sun Knight] fic: New Horizons -That Person Now Returned- (9/9)

Title: New Horizons -That Person Now Returned- (9/9)
Fandom: The Legend of Sun Knight
Words: 2,798
Summary: Not long after Grisia assumes the position of the 38th Sun Knight, he spots a familiar face among the crowds—Roland, who has become a royal knight captain after disappearing from Grisia's life. However, trouble brews among the palace. This time around, is it Grisia's turn to look after Roland?
Notes: Here's the ending! \o\ This part ended up so much longer than all the others haha. Kind of went, whoops, here's another end I need to tie up. Anyway, here it is. I'm pretty proud that I was able to post this daily. And it's finished. 8D End word count was ~14.6k. Darn, so close to 15k! Spoiler warning for stuff we find out near the end of v6. Warning for non graphic mention of torture and its repercussions.

[Legend of Sun Knight] fic: New Horizons -That Person Now Returned- (8/9)

Title: New Horizons -That Person Now Returned- (8/9)
Fandom: The Legend of Sun Knight
Words: 1,483
Summary: Not long after Grisia assumes the position of the 38th Sun Knight, he spots a familiar face among the crowds—Roland, who has become a royal knight captain after disappearing from Grisia's life. However, trouble brews among the palace. This time around, is it Grisia's turn to look after Roland?
Notes: I'm on track to finish, whoot! Enjoy~. Decided to add a short epilogue'ish ending to Part 9 (it won't be a separate part since the epilogue itself is so short). It does make Part 9 the longest part though! Warning for non-graphic mention of torture in this part.
