Guys


Guys why did I write this


I'm supposed to be working on my Original Story Stuff, not falling prey to Random Plot Bunnies


I


I don't even know


..And at the same time I am sort of terribly, extremely proud of that fic, cracktastic though it is
alory_shannon: HHr. In all the years they were together, she never left his side; not once. (Ghosts in the Graveyard;)
~

Let me preface this entry with a statement of absolute truth:

I don’t write Potterfic.

Ever.

I confess that I do read it much more often than any other fanfiction out there, but despite the fact that Harry/Hermione is, was, and always will be my favourite pairing out of anything and everything I have ever read, watched, or played, I still simply…haven’t written anything for it. It’s just that by and large, I feel like anything I could come up with has already been done, and been done better than I could have ever done it. There’s loads of wonderful HHr fic out there already, so many amazingly talented writers focusing their all on it, so there’s no need for me to turn my own meager skills and feeble imaginings in that direction.

And yet…I still couldn’t resist writing this. So this one time, I made an exception. A nice, even 300 words total, and I’ve no doubt that it’s both my first and my last Harmony fic, but they are still my Always.


[Hermione, Harry. ‘Ghosts In The Graveyard, Hauntings of Christmases Past.’]

--
It’s been hard, living with the knowledge that she’s alone in the world, no parents anymore, at least not for now, not since she’s wiped their memories and sent them off to Australia. Today, on Christmas Eve, this holiday that’s meant to be about home and happy warmth and family, it hits her harder than ever, what she’s done, what she’s lost, possibly for good.

Rather than a house, there’s just the tent. Rather than warmth, there’s the cold snow crunching beneath her feet, and rather than happiness there’s fear and a strained sense of urgency. Rather than her family, there’s just Harry.

But it’s what she chose--he is what she chose--and hard as it is, Hermione doesn’t regret it. She could never be sorry for choosing to be by his side. Especially now, as she holds his hand and he clutches hers back almost hard enough to make it ache as she watches him, Harry Potter, let loose and simply cry. He abandons all pretense at strength and poise; he trusts her enough to lay himself and all his emotions open before her eyes without any fear of judgment or mockery, though at the moment, she knows Harry could care less who sees him sobbing before that cold grey stone like a lost child.

She feels an empathetic twinge in her own chest, a shallow echo of that feeling of loss, but deep as her own sorrow is, Hermione knows that Harry’s is infinitely deeper. That doesn’t make her pain any less real, but even so, the mingling of logic and compassion give her perspective, and she steps closer so that their shoulders brush and their shadows melt together, squeezing Harry’s hand tighter still.

It’s her first Christmas without her parents.

It’s Harry’s first Christmas with his.

...Well. I don't NORMALLY go posting my fanfic here, because a) I doubt most of you care to read it and/or want that clogging up your f-lists since I generally post at least one a week, and b) I have a writing journal where I sort of file away all that sort of stuff, but. I'm posting this one here, because it is warm and fuzzy and it made me happy to write it. BFF OT3 awwwwww~

...I'll be sad if you don't read it. :C And despite the title it's not at ALL smutty, I swear. )

It's because it's hard to update with RL stuff when RL is Not Very Exciting. BUT I guess I've accumulated enough things to make a passable attempt at an update, so here we go!

FIRST AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, I have a job interview this coming Wednesday! I've been trying to get a full-time job in the library system for a while now and haven't even gotten called for an interview, but my boss called the people this time and put in a good word for me, which was cool of her. The job is at the Main library downtown, so driving to work every day would be...an adventure, but it doesn't really matter because 1) I REALLY need a full time job and it would probably take less time to get there than it does to get to my current job and 2) I really doubt I'll get the position anyway, so the point is moot. STILL, I CAN DREAM, AND YOU CAN BET I'LL DO MY BEST TO MAKE THEM WANT ME. Ahaha, that sounds so wrong, but then again so does the "DO YOUR BEST TO SELL YOURSELF" line interview guides tend to throw out. Anyway, unless I make an entry spazzing out about my new job, assume I didn't get it. :]

In other less important news, I went shopping at the mall with Mutti last week, something I've not done for...a very very long while, and which prompted me to wonder just how old I looked just then. I'm fairly certain everyone who saw me assumed I was a high school student. Does that make me a trap? |D Anyway, thanks to this trip to the mall, for the first time I own underwear that, should I ever be subjected to a strip-search in the middle of a busy airport, I would not die of mortification for having been seen in. I've never owned anything from Victoria's Secret before, but now I can see why it's so popular.

Also, I now have a very nice pair of pinstripe pants, a cute new button-down shirt to wear to work, and a loligoth-esque top that I got from Hot Topic. And the funny thing is, if my mum hadn't been with me, I wouldn't have bought the shirt from HT--she basically MADE me go back into the store and try it on when I told her I'd seen something I liked, and she doesn't even really like the fact that I like that style of clothing. Mixed signals much? Anyway, I'll take/post some pictures of those items if I feel like it sometime that's not 3 in the morning.

Oh, but my mum is hilarious. When I was playing TotA like a frickin' ZOMBIE a couple weeks ago, she managed to catch me at JUST the wrong moment, and I totally fangirled at her about my new fake boyfriend for probably about ten minutes. And she listened to the whole thing, and then just went, "...Hmmmmm...does this mean you'll stop being so obsessed with that girly-looking one?" (By which she meant Deidara, I'm sure.) And I assured her that oh yes, Guy was much more wonderful than Deidara in ALL ways and showed her the above picture. And she INSTANTLY brightened and went, "Oh, yes! He's handsome! 8DDD ......UH! But you *do* know he's pretend, right?" (*eyeroll* Yes, mother, I'm fully aware of that, which is why I called him my FAKE boyfriend. And kudos for trying to hide your own brief flicker of fangirlishness.)

...Oh, but it gets better...

She watched me play for a little bit, and I showed her the alternate costume I'd just gotten for Guy (the one you get for that VERY ANNOYING sidequest where you help Frings and Cecille pass notes in study hall), and said that I didn't really care for it because I liked Guy's original pants better. And she caught me, and was all "Oh, because they're tighter, right?"

Me: "...Y-yeah..." ^^;;

AND THEN SHE TOOK IT A STEP FARTHER, AND ACTUALLY SAID, "...Put those pants back on him--now turn him sideways, let's see--can you see the bulge?" AND SHE WAS ACTUALLY INTERESTED/CURIOUS/SEMI-EAGER TO SEE.

I SWEAR MY FACE WAS LIKE
O.O

LOL WTF, MUTTI.


So yeah, Tales of the Abyss > Naruto. For so many reasons that I won't go into here. BUT~ I wrote my first TotA drabble/fic today! It's SHORT genfic with some angst, and THERE ARE SPOILERS, but if you don't know the game at all, it probably won't make enough sense for you to really be spoiled. It also focuses on my two favourite characters, Guy and Anise. I'm the first person to post a fic on FF.net with those two as the main characters. I can't decide between being intensely proud of myself and succumbing to melodramatic tears of frustration. COME ON GUYS, THEY'RE HILARIOUS TOGETHER.

Guy + Anise. 'Proxime Accessit.'

...This was NOT what I was supposed to be working on today. -_-x


Title: Afterimage.
Author: [livejournal.com profile] alory_shannon
Genre: Gen.
Rating: T.
Pairing: None. Technically.
Characters Featured: Deidara. Sasori, after a fashion. Mentions of Sakura.
Summary: One-shot drabble. Deidara goes to pay his final respects to Sasori. Strange how it comes out sounding more like “I told you so.”

...I'm really quite happy with this piece. Once again, not angst. Maybe just a little creepy, but it's supposed to be, so I do hope you find it so. ♥


Title: Sleep When You're Dead, Part One.
Author: [livejournal.com profile] alory_shannon
Genre: Gen, drabble.
Rating: PG
Pairing: None.
Featured Characters: Deidara, Tobi, Sasori.
Summary: Sleep is not always a comfort, and some arguments can reach beyond the grave. Something of an exploration of three artists, primarily focusing on Deidara. Part one of two.

Title: On Ignorance, Neglect, and Being Left Behind.
Author: [livejournal.com profile] alory_shannon.
Genre: Gen + Humour.
Rating: PG at worst. C'mon, it's humour, whaddya want. lol
Summary: One-shot. Kakashi + Sakura interaction. Kakashi gets a little of what he deserves. And Sakura is just a little bit evil, as she should be. SlightlyEvil!Sakura = MY FAVOURITE SAKURA, right after Kickass!Sakura...though sometimes they are one and the same. And they are a little bit here. >]

GUYS HEY GUYS, TRUE STORY.

To understand how funny this is, you have to know that my family is VERY right-wing conservative, which means among other things that swearing = OMG BAD. My mum (half-jokingly, but still) reprimands me for saying 'crap', so you get the idea of how uptight she is about this. Anyway, the other day we were watching that Adam Sandler movie The Longest Yard, which I'd borrowed from the library and which my mum had never seen, when suddenly the disc started skipping and then refused to play, which lead to this priceless event:

Me: "...Aw man, I guess it's too scratched..."

Mum: "No! Go find that...whatchamadick!"

Me, my dad, and my brother: o_O o_o O_O "......."

Mum: "...I mean, the CD cleaner...!"


...Yeah, we just about laughed her out of the room. :3


Nothing much to report otherwise. The library is INSANE lately what with all the early voting, and it's going to be that way until November 1st, so that's just wonderful. I have never been asked so many ridiculous questions or had to put up with so much inane bullshit in my life. To all you middle-aged men standing in line next to the desk: it was not funny when the first person like you chuckled and then made the tiresomely obvious comment that "Wow, this is a pretty long line, isn't it!", apparently expecting me to be impressed by your exceptional skills of observation and laugh at how clever you were to point it out to me, who has been sitting at the desk and watching people slowly filing past for the past five hours. It is not any more funny the 30th time.

[livejournal.com profile] laura_writes sent me the first two seasons of Veronica Mars, which I'd heard was good but had never seen, and after just the first two episodes, I'm already in love with it. I adore her hair. It makes me want to cut mine short again. Not...that I didn't want to do that already, heh.


ALSO, THERE IS FIC.

Title: Remnants.
Author: [livejournal.com profile] alory_shannon.
Genre: Gen, slight angst.
Rating: PG.
Pairing: Slight Kakashi/Rin implications, though technically none, since they're still 13/14 in this fic. So definitely no smut, or ANYTHING like that.
Summary: One-shot. Some introspective drabbling on Kakashi and Rin's relationship after Obito's death.

...I really need to make a post, and I've been meaning to write an entry about some stuff, but it's five in the morning and I have to be up at eight, so for now, all I can say is here, KakaSaku drabble. Enjoy~

Thank you to everyone who commented on that last f-locked post of mine. I think I've got things worked out now, so we'll see how it goes. :] Your thoughts on the issue helped me nail things down, that's for sure, so <33333333333 to you all.


Also, have a fic. XD


Title: Surrogate.
Author: [livejournal.com profile] alory_shannon
Genre: Gen. Slight crack I guess, but not really.
Rating: G.
Pairing: None. [Deidara’s srsly like 12 in this story, so ewno.]
Characters Featured: Konan and Deidara. Cameos by Pein, Itachi, Kisame, and Sasori.
Summary: One-shot. Konan’s long-dormant maternal instincts find an outlet in an unlikely source. Don’t choke on the fluffiness~ XD

Surrogate.

I have this drabble series on a tight schedule this month, so expect to see lots of updates about this one. ...Supposing things go as they should.


Title: The APL Project: iv. acts & scenes. the world's a stage, so play your part.
Author: [livejournal.com profile] alory_shannon
Genre: Gen/Crack
Rating: PG
Pairing: None. 'Tis genfic! :D
Summary: In which a fairytale is not fractured so much as it is demolished, much to the dismay of the children in the audience.

...Man. It seems like all I'm doing these days is posting links to stuff I've written. I've just been too tired or too preoccupied with reading lately to write about what's happening in my life.

Oh well. I'm pretty boring anyway. ;]

Title: The APL Project: iii. text & terms. three strikes, the third degree.
Author: [livejournal.com profile] alory_shannon
Genre: Gen/Crack
Rating: PG
Pairing: None. 'Tis genfic! :D
Summary: Library!AU. Deidara is annoying. Sasori does not appreciate this. And I am a geek for writing library fic. XD But I'm not sorry.


Cut is fake; link is cross-posted to [livejournal.com profile] inkspatters and [livejournal.com profile] deidara_un.



..."Real" LJ post tomorrow maybe.
alory_shannon: Sherlock doing what he does best. Aside from irritating John & sort-of failing at being a human being, anyway. (Caffeine is Batman's REAL seekrit weapon)
~

Title: Vested Interest
Author: [livejournal.com profile] alory_shannon
Rating: sadly only T
Pairing: DeiSaku
Summary: AU with a bit of crack. Two strangers happen to have matching attire. Deidara doesn’t see what the big deal is. Sakura insists it wouldn’t’ve happened if he hadn’t shopped in the women’s section. Tempers flare, words are exchanged, clothing is ruined. And thus, a romance is born.


It's not the best thing I've ever written, and frankly I think my drabbles are much better in terms of the quality of my writing, but I'm more or less satisfied with this (though really, I'm mostly just glad that it's DONE).

Title: Embers.
Author: [livejournal.com profile] alory_shannon.
Rating: T
Word Count: 772
Pairing: DeiSaku STFU I KNOW IT'S CRACK, I CAN LIKE IT IF I WANT. Don't knock it 'til you've tried it!

For [livejournal.com profile] stereotype_vamp. <3

There’s no doubt in his mind, and likely in her mind as well, that the thing he wants most is to blow them both sky high. Because they, together, are just that beautiful in his eyes.

Title: Close Enough.
Author: [livejournal.com profile] alory_shannon
Pairing: Kakashi/Sakura. Though technically not really, I suppose.
Rating: T, edging towards M, for an adult situation. i.e. probably not for you, David. XD;



I don't think I can properly express just how much I love writing things in one sitting. I would get SO much more written if I just did that all the time instead of allowing myself to put it away for later.

Today, I wrote some Kakashi + Sakura genfic.

And I'm very proud of myself because I wrote it in one sitting, which is hard for someone as ADHD as I am.

It's over HERE on my new-ish writing journal, which I'm hoping to be much more active with. :]
alory_shannon: Sherlock doing what he does best. Aside from irritating John & sort-of failing at being a human being, anyway. (How I honestly felt after book 7.  And b)
Title: Myopia
Author: [livejournal.com profile] alory_shannon
Genre: Humour, crack, otherwise gen
Rating: G/PG. Nothing objectionable whatsoever. Other than Tobi’s over-the-top cheerfulness, of course.
Characters Featured: Deidara and Tobi; a mention of Sasori and passing mentions of Itachi, Hidan, Kakazu, Pein, and Konan, if you really want to be nitpicky
Summary: What if Deidara needed his scope for more than just ranged fighting? (Just a slight bit of crack.)

For [livejournal.com profile] sharingank. Even if she’s mostly lost her love for this pairing which isn't really a pairing in this fic but whatev. Because it’s still entirely her fault that this plot bunny went anywhere. ♥

You know you wanna read me. 8D )

So last night, I was chatting with a friend on AIM, and she suddenly asked me to tell her a story.

"...What kind of story?" I asked.

"An AWESOME one!" she replied.

"...I don't know any," I said, but before long, I found myself turning an idea over in my head, and I figured what the hell, why not.


And thus, in the space perhaps half an hour, this absolute gem of a story came into being. It amused me enough that I decided to share it with you lucky people.


Enjoy.

Or. Something.

This is hands-down the most ridiculous thing I've ever written. )

A short snippet of a future post from the APL project. Couldn't resist sharing. ^_^ Itachi & Sasuke interaction FTW. ...What, did you think APL would ONLY be about Sasori & Dei? XD

Itachi & Sasuke: small print. qualifications & restrictions. deliberate obscurity. )

Feedback would be lovely~
alory_shannon: Sherlock doing what he does best. Aside from irritating John & sort-of failing at being a human being, anyway. (DEIDEI <3)

Title: "Read The Fine Print, Yeah"
Author: [livejournal.com profile] alory_shannon
Genre: Gen/Humour/Crack
Rating: PG-13 for violence and language
Characters: Deidara, and a cracktastic Evil Overlord version of Leader-sama.
Summary: Deidara learns that you shouldn’t sign a contract before reading all the fine print (or “MY version of how Deidara got roped into joining the Akatsuki” XD). Apparently no one ever taught him to look underneath the underneath. Includes plain discussion of plot devices and some abuse of literary archetypes. You have been warned.

I know it's a bit AU now due to chps 359 & 360, but ah well. I wrote this before those came out.

This was supposed to be kinda sorta a birfday gift ficlet thing for [livejournal.com profile] squeakyorm 'cause she rocks, but unfortunately I finished it RIGHT before I went on a two-week trip without Internet access, and thus I didn't get it beta-ed and corrected until now. *FAILZ*
You can still have it if you want it, Squeaky dear. <3

Read The Fine Print, Yeah )
