Welcome to my writing journal! Frankly I've noticed that I've been having a lot of chats about writing stuff...So I've decided to start to throw some of my more extensive/epic thoughts in here so I can get my urge to write giant authors notes out of my system ^_^ This post will be sitting on top for awhile, in classic blogger 'read this first' fashion.

I'll be tagging by story.

My trend of illustrating my own fanfic continues! This hasn't happened yet, obviously...

Cut for a spoiler-y pic, Rey/Luke, kinda NSFW )

So. There IS, in fact, a point to the whole 'Road' plot arc. However, I'm worried that it might look too much like a Trapped By Mountain Lions situation.

Raider OCs, the Dark Side, and Rey's Sith Training )

Yep.

Ok, I'm considering expanding 'Indulge' a little bit. You can blame some of this on watching a 'Let's Play' of Amnesia: The Dark Descent. O_O

Themes in Indulge...Meaning the 7 Deadly Sins )

So HMMMMMMM I HAVE THINGS TO THINK ABOUT

So I'm watching Markiplier's Dead Space 'Let's Play' series (yeah, all of them), and Dead Space 3 has the 'scavenger bot.'

...

...

...I think you all know what I'm thinking.

Isaac and Rey are basically BAMF-y Space MacGyvers. And you know that there'd be Necromorph pwnage if she ever saw any.

Isaac: REMOVE THE LIMBS *plasma cutter*
Rey: BITCH PLEASE *lightsabers that shit*
Isaac: >:D >:D >:D

Perhaps I should re-think my Star Wars/Event Horizon crossover. Because Star Wars/Dead Space would rock too.

It would rock so hard. And I can work with the whole 'the Markers are Sith Weapons' or 'the Dark Side did it because the Dark Side is a dick' thing.

...The fact that Isaac is now on my ***Silver Fox Crush List*** doesn't hurt, either :3 Then again having him and Luke in the same story might be overkill...

...

OK STOP IT LIGHTPOINT YOU HAVE WIPs TO FINISH

*headdesk*

Ok, seriously canon!Rey...A STAFF? As your only weapon? On an obviously dangerous planet?

Cut for thoughts on canon Rey's questionable self-defense practices which kinda actually DO kinda make sense with the Disney narrative )

Another illustration, this time for when Rey finds Sidious and switches to the red light:

The setup for What Happens after Counting Days and Edge of Night. Cut for spoilers:

Working Title: Echo in the Blood )

...Yeah it's basically TFA, but with undercover Sith. >:) It's coming when I finish Counting Days. MUAHAHAHA!

Reasons Why I Haven't Updated: The Sequel!

Well, I needed to figure out/visualize exactly where Sidious was going to run his newly-minted Apprentice through a 'trial of the flesh,' of sorts. And have a load of fun while doing it ;)

It's going to be part 'accept this aspect of your wants and part 'you need to master them.' Kind of like in chapter 2. But WHERE was this going to happen was my big question.

So it seems that the ancient Sith Empire...

... HAS ALMOST THE EXACT SAME SIGIL AS THE WARHAMMER 40K CHAOS FACTION.

I randomly discovered this while digging through Pinterest for inspiration for a multi-chaptered fic I'm planning. It's a crossover/fusion with Event Horizon. Which has apparently been adopted by the Warhammer 40k fandom as an unofficial prequel. About a descent into Chaos.

This is pretty much the best coincidence ever. It's borderline cosmic.

The working title, by the way, of this crazy thing is Rough Beast.

New AU?

Yeesh, I have to stop doing this - I'm thinking of adding a few more one-shots in the same AU as Black Tie. Tentative title: *The Trust Fund Babies* AU. Or maybe *One-Percenters*, or *Noblesse Oblige* or something where everything is crazy and melodramatic and scandalous and everyone is independantly wealthy.

...That's my backstory for Black Tie, by the way.
More details under the cut LOL )

Ok, fuck it, it's the Noblesse Oblige AU.

...

Hmmm...

Rey's Career and Stuff )

Let's just say that Rey's path forward is going to get rocky.
lightpoint: luke&rey (reywalker2)
YMICB Chapter 7 is up. Whew. It's about 6000 almost 7000 words long. WHY. *dead*

Actually I'm considering breaking it into 2 chunks now, to make the narrative 'feel' less clunky, but it kinda feels like it'd be a faux pas, because I already posted it. :P

I think there's a pacing issue. BUT:

I have a note about Rey's character arc: She's not going to move in with Luke in chapter 8. In fact, she's going to get her own bed, her own furniture, and get her place squared away. And work on that book collection.

...Not that she won't be over there a lot. And vice versa. But I think it's important for her to do that, to forge her own peace, and be happy in her own skin.

Cut for thoughts on stuff that might actually happen )

But she does need to heal up a bit...And in the meantime, let the alarm clock battles BEGIN!

Here's an illustration for my fanfic series The Rule of Two. I did it with Autodesk on my tablet, and modded some of the contrast and color saturation stuff in photobucket:

I may 'orphan' something I just posted. Because it is fucking with my head and I don't want to look at it anymore. I was only half kidding about the bleach shower.

So why in the everliving FUCK did I write that?

Why? )

I'm watching Bleak House on Amazon Prime - the version of it with Gillian Anderson. It's making me remember stuff I learned about Charles Dickens in high-school English...Namely that his work was serialized in newspapers and magazines (he was paid by the word). People were rabid for the stories. Watching Bleak House, I am just imagining the epic ship wars that must've ensued in the back alleys of Victorian Londen...Take your pick of ship.

The screen cuts and parody-worthy, whooshing close-ups also remind me how Bleak House was, essentially, Victorian pop culture fodder, 'low art'. There's melodrama, rich people behaving badly, crime and punishment, nefarious lawyers, noble poverty-stricken Londoners, despicable poverty-stricken Londoners, a virtuous young woman of dubious parentage (Esther), who is the locus of a love triangle and picked up an obsessive stalker in the first 20 minutes of the show, and a grande dame with a dark secret (Lady Dedlock).

Also I'm smirking at the modern parallels, particularly Richard's educational switches. The more things change...

Mainstream publications still do this today, but reading the paper or subscribing to a magazine isn't as ubiquitous as it was in the 1800s. People do it, but not everyone.

One of the best analogues, I think, is television - it's gotten to the point that when a new Game of Thrones episode comes out, almost everyone is talking about it, even mainstream news sites. I suppose that's why Dickens' work lends itself really well to television - it's episodic, and meant to keep the audience coming back for more (buy more papers).

However, in modern literature, fanfiction is practically the successor to the old-school serial. On AO3 and FF.net you can subscribe to an author, or put a watch on a story so you don't miss any updates.

Yeah, that sounded pretentious...But keep in mind that stuff like Bleak House, A Tale of Two Cities, and Great Expectations were all just entertainment when they were originally published. Yeah, fanfic isn't going to get the Dickens treatment, but I kinda like the fact that 'the serial' LIVES STILL, LIVES ON THE INTERNET!! I think Dickens would be pleased :)

I had another brainwave today.

Thoughts )
lightpoint: portrait of sidious with color adjustment (sidious2)
Darth Sidious is a tough character to work with. In my opinion, the worst thing you can do with him is make him too nice... Well, genuinely nice. If he's good to anyone, there needs to be a reason. 'Counting Days' is kind of a strange fic, in that it's 100% Rey's POV, so she only sees what he wants her to see...at first. She figures out that her new friend isn't quite what he appears to be, but by the time she realizes what's up, he's a part of her life.

They do, however, become a team, of sorts. There are always two, after all...

Here's some notes on Sidious. Some of it is my comments-section brainstorming.
