 AHH!  I've been neglecting livejournal, I know, but I had real life things going on and I either had to sacrifice the fanfiction dot net part of my internet life or the livejournal part, and fanfiction dot net actually, you know, helps me to become a better writer.  Which is what the real life responsibilities were, but more on that later-

I promise people I'll get back to them on two week neglected comments and everything, but for now, here's a gift-


Yup.  I made that.  At, like, 11 last night while waiting for my birth minute.  (11:30, and I totally missed it because I was making this.)

*comes running* HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!
Sorry, I didn't forget, my internet broke last night =( Speaking of which, would you like a brithday writing present? You could give me a prompt, I could post something I've been meaning to for a while, you could ask me to do that music challenge or I've got a few bits and pieces on my laptop. Whatever, any requests? =)

As for the MMV, have patience with me because I'm not a big fan. I usually get a little tired of their messages or I end up being super-critical of the music. I have a grand total of 2 AMVs I like and Mushishi AMVs are ridiculously high quality for the most part. What I liked about yours though is that you didn't try to force a pairing or a meaning out of the images, you just allowed the characters' emotions to sit naturally beside the music. I really respect that. It brought their true relationships through. But then that's Wallpaper for you. The music also seems like the kind of thing most people would be tempted to create angst from so thank you very much for avoiding that and going for a more all-round theme!
Although there was a moment where I didn't recognise the 'holic images. I've missed a recent update XD Just finished reading it, thanks for letting me know. WOW... that was huge =O

Aw, thanks! >_< Damn it, this is making me feel like such a jerk. Sorry for not responding sooner!

I'm glad you liked the mmv, and don't worry, I didn't even really try that hard on it. Just sort of did it for fun. Thank you though!

It's alright, sounds like you have a lot of work on your plate from your post!

And I'm feeling bad too, I said I'd write you a story and I haven't managed to do it yet. I think you could sympathise though when you feel you have no time to concentrate properly in one go and you need to get in the right mood for a kind of scene? Do you...? Well I've got it semi-planned and something else I have semi-planned (not 100% sure here, I'm crammed to my neck in AU ideas) - remember all that talk about Chrysanthemum Vows? =) There's an album being released on Monday I'm hoping to use like inspiration soundtrack. Fingers crossed I get a chance to write that!
Jul. 15th, 2009 11:31 pm (UTC)
Aw, it's alright, you don't have to write it for me if your busy! Believe me, I understand. Besides, I still have to read all your other stuff next time I get the chance, I think I'm actually going to try to squeeze a chapter in now, so it's alright. I'll just pretend English as a Second Langauge is my present. *insert dramatic, gleeful sigh* I did inspire the name, after all. Yep. I'm just fabulous that way.
Jul. 15th, 2009 11:40 pm (UTC)
It's not that I'm busy, I have a lot of time it's just that it's all in small bursts so I can't focus for long. And if it's not too much trouble could you please, please help with another name? ^^' I don't know if you got that message and it's fine if you're busy but it's been sitting on my laptop for a while now. It wouldn't be too hard to think up a fitting tite I'd just rather it were good lol
Jul. 16th, 2009 10:20 am (UTC)
Nah, it's fine, I'd love to help with another name. I haven't checked my email in a week and a half though, so I probably got the message and just didn't know.
Jul. 16th, 2009 10:51 am (UTC)
Would you want me to re-post the description here?
Jul. 19th, 2009 08:49 pm (UTC)
Sure, that would probably be easier. And I'll get to the email eventually.

This is what I had as the summary but I might end up changing it:
From childhood to adulthood they were always something special to one another, more valuable than sport, more important than numbers. But then their love had always seemed pushed and pulled by the odds and the game. What were the chances it would happen this way?

Basically it's a romance focusing on how their relationship changes from childhood to adolescence and how they begin again when they're reunited as adults. Football (soccer) and statistics are themes but aren't exactly the main focus. I hope this makes sense because it's a little late here, I'll be getting back to your other email in the morning when my brain might be functioning ^^

Um... 'Rules of the Game'? 'Keeping Score'? 'Weather Interference'? XD i always end up with a whole lot of stupid titles, but out of them usually whoever I suggest titles to finds at least one that they end up liking, so I figure I'm fine, I guess.

'I'm Winning.' 'The Winner Takes It All.' Not to be reminded of Abba, of course. 'Away Games'. 'Just For Sport'. 'Go Long'. XD Ok, now I'm just being ridiculous. Jeez.

'All For the Love of the Game'. 'Love of the Game'. 'Winner Takes All'. 'Changing Teams'.
DX I's is gonna stop now...

It's funny. I try to think of a title and I end up with a football pun. I ask my friend who's read a chapter or two and she ends up with a football pun. I ask my friend who's never even touched Tsubasa (apart from asking why my homemade Fye doll has no crotch like Freddie Mercury in tight material?) and she comes up with a pun. I ask you for a title and you come up with 11 football puns xD

I honestly think you deserve some kind of prize for that lol I'm pretty fond of 'Love of the Game' actually but here's the predicament that's befallen every person who has tried to title this fic myself included: although I say football is a theme and Kurogane plays it sometimes during the events of the chapter, it's never the main point, it's always a background thing. But along with statistics it's the only theme I physically have. The entire thing is childhood friendship/romance, start to finish, Kurogane just happens to have a football with him sometimes and it's not even mentioned in a lot of chapters. And I have no idea if that justifies naming the plot after football or not. Plus it's not very light-humoured tbh. It's not dire exactly but it's certainly not happy.

So as clever and funny as some of those names are I don't have a single clue whether they fit or not o.o

For demonstration's sake:
my pun - A Game of Chance
friend 1's pun - Off-side Rule
friend 2's pun - Calculated Romance
my favourite pun from your 11 xD - Love of the Game

Actually this is easier - Sample Paragraph

Okay I feel like I've spent ages running around like a headless chicken with this but it finally has a name and it's not ANY of the suggestions but it's definitely closest to yours. In fact I wouldn't be surprised if I was thinking of 'Love of the Game' and got to it. It's *drum-roll* 'The Odds of the Game'. Thank you for the title suggestions and I really wish you could read it but I understand you have a lot on your plate right now =) I just hope you're still enjoying your holidays! I half-killed mine last year with work. But it paid off :D hope it's the same for you!
Jul. 30th, 2009 11:38 pm (UTC)
Ah! I'm going to read it eventaully, I promise! I'm just busy right now, and I don't dare go on fanfiction dot net or start reading internet things really because then I'll get distracted. >_<

It both doesn't help and is extremely lucky that I'm no longer obsessed with Tsubasa. I go through these obsessions, you see, and if I WAS still in a Tsubasa obsession, I'd stay up all night trying to read all the fanfictions for it in the world and then fall asleep at work. Or, worse yet, at the AIDS clinic. And when you fall asleep at an experimental AIDS clinic in Philly... well, you should probably at least do it in someone's locked office. So much stuff gets stolen there, I'm serious.

As it is, your fanfiction is really the only Tsubasa related thing I'm doing now (besides reading updates when they actually come (of Tsubasa itself). But your fanfictions are really, really good, which makes it completely separate to whether or not I'm obsessed with Tsubasa. :-) I'll definitely read this eventually. I just can't promise anymore that it'll be within the week it comes out.
Jul. 31st, 2009 12:55 pm (UTC)
It's fine =) There are actually quite a lot of OC fics up right now though...

It's a shame you're not so into Tsubasa but take it you'll have a new obsession in its place =) Stuff gets stolen from an AIDs clinic? =S Like what? Pens? *confused* That's pretty strange...

Thank you, I really appreciate it ^^ (though I'm not too proud of 'English...' really) And I'm really glad you like my writing so much it's separate! On that note, I hope your orginal fic is going well!
Jul. 30th, 2009 11:32 pm (UTC)
Really? I came up with 11? o_o

And to think, I never watched an entire football game in my life.

That is so weird.

And when you say that it's not happy... do you mean in the same way 'Fish and Chips' is 'not happy?'
Jul. 31st, 2009 11:08 am (UTC)
Yes, 12 if you take 'Winner Takes It All' as being different from 'The Winner Takes It All' =)

When you say 'football' do you mean American football? Because I'm meaning soccer. 'Cept I call it football.

God no! xD One or two similar themes appear as well as some growing up angst but I didn't deal with them in the same way. Like in F&C it's focused on but I think it's brushed over in this so there's a tinge of something but nothing as deep (this is just me guessing, I phsyically can't tell how it reads lol). But my friend has told me that Fye also appears very vindictive at points and I think that's the perfect word for it.

Well hello, there (and Happy Birthday agaaaaain~) *glomps*

Um, you just broke my heart T_T. I've got to say, the song choice was lovely, and I liked the moments you picked to express how things progressed and changed (*is still entirely brokenhearted by Holic, oh dear*). The switch from one panel to another was a bit too abrupt at times, but maybe that was just my browser acting up.

Aaah, what a lovely amv/song for me to listen to now that I'm back home ^^ Thanks for sharing~
Jul. 15th, 2009 06:14 pm (UTC)
Nah, that was me, i don't know why it shook like that.

Thanks, I'm still broken up over Holic too. Though I do hold out the hope that Yuko is the one character to have the unhappy ending.
May. 25th, 2009 06:52 pm (UTC)
Happy Birthday! Sorry that it's late, just found out. ^^;; Hope you had a good one. And a great job on your MMV! *Hugs*
Jul. 15th, 2009 06:12 pm (UTC)
Aw, thanks! DX I feel like such a jerk for not thanking you, like, a few months ago.
