Reborn! fic - The Bachelor
Oh boy! Sleep!
makeste
Title - The Bachelor
Rating - PG-13 for Gokudera’s perpetually inappropriate mouth
Characters - Tsuna, Gokudera, Reborn, Haru, Kyoko, and Enma
Notes/Warnings - Spoilers for the Inheritance Arc. Also, please note that THIS IS CRACK, THIS IS NOT IN ANY WAY A SERIOUS PAIRING FIC. So just sit back and roll with it and we’re good. /o/
Summary - Reborn decides it’s time to marry Tsuna off. Gokudera decides the best way to do it is via quiz show, à la The Dating Game. Tsuna decides nothing, because Tsuna has no control over his life.

'It's time we made an honest man out of you.'Collapse )

Reborn! fic - The Shadow Sword
Fearlessness in the face of death
makeste
Title - The Shadow Sword (Part 1?)
Rating - R (for language and mafia violence)
Characters - Yamamoto Takeshi, Superbi Squalo, Enrico

Notes - So once upon a time, I wrote an AU fic where Tsuna was the Vongola Tenth, Gokudera was his right hand and an active member of the Varia, and Yamamoto was their feared and hated enemy. :’D Plans for a sequel, however, were eventually thwarted by the fact that I am a spectacular failure.

However! Two and a half years later, I still have more than 3,000 words of a prequel to this AU just lying around on my hard drive doing whatever it is problem child fics do. So I decided to dig it up and dust it off because in spite of everything, I still really like it, and because hey, it is his birthday after all. :P

This should be more or less self-contained, though it may end a bit abruptly (can’t be helped). It helps if you’ve read Down the Stairs, but I don’t think it’s a requirement.

Summary - AU; prequel to Down the Stairs. How Yamamoto Takeshi, the Mafia world’s most feared assassin, ended up on the wrong side of the wrong side of the law.

It began with his father.Collapse )

A.K.A., “GIANT ESSAY ABOUT TSUNA AND REBORN’S RELATIONSHIP.”

BEFORE I GET TO THE ESSAY, a quick note for anyone who is on LJ and/or Dreamwidth exclusively--pretty much all of my KHR reviews these days are only posted on tumblr. Because I am super lazy, and cross-posting stuff requires me to do a little more typing and clicking and OH MY GOD IT'S SO MUCH WORK!1 (I'm sorry, did I say lazy, I meant fail. XD)

If anyone is interested, I finally went back and tagged my tumblr reviews with the 'yay new chapter' tag, so... yeah. They're there! That is where they are.

Anyway, so yeah, KHR 378 came out and an essay happened, idk.

1500 words on KHR characters. This is a cut that is definitely worth clicking.Collapse )

Reborn! fic - Brother, Can You Spare Some Change
I don't care what Jim says.
makeste
Title: Brother, Can You Spare Some Change
Rating: PG-13 (for language)
Characters: The Varia!
Notes/Warnings: I am sick and running on fumes and recklessly inspired by the last couple of KHR chapters. So I wrote some bizarre and stupid Varia daily life fic. Please judge me mercifully.

Also, Lussuria is Lussuria, okay. Some forces cannot be tamed.

Summary: Squalo needs a dollar.

'VOIIIIIII,' voied Squalo voifully.Collapse )

KHR 371: The Hibari Cockblock Conspiracy
I'M A SHAAAAAARK

One day you’ll get to fight somebody, Kyoya. One day.

KHR 370: A HANDSOME MAN APPEARS
I keep bad company.
makeste
I forgot to cross-post my last KHR review from tumblr. ...And the last, idk, five or six or possibly even ten before that. XD Whoops.

Anyway though, this week's review finally got long enough that it didn't feel awkward to cross-post it to DW and LJ as well. So I am just going to do that now! (For reference--my own, mostly--the previous tumblr reviews can be found if you scroll back a little ways through the KHR tag here.)

So hey, LJ and Dreamwidth actually have cuts! That sure is nice.

You don't have to scroll past any of this if you choose not to! And trust me, it is a fair bit to scroll past. XDCollapse )

ITP: 2012
Shitt P Imma let you finish
makeste
HAPPY NEW YEAR, FRIENDS. ♥ 2012 at last! For some reason I'm way more excited about the possibilities of this coming year than I was for the last one. Maybe it's because 2011 was kind of a 'meh' year in general for me (does real life adhere to Star Trek even number rules??); I almost feel like this year has to be better. SO YEAH--BRING IT.

Regarding things! I was largely absent from LJ in 2011 and I've made my peace with the fact that this is a trend that will most likely continue into the new year! (Regarding the recent LJ... "upgrade", I don't mind the new look at all but do mind the lack of subject headings in comments, so that's not exactly pushing me to spend more time here.) Having said that, I finally created a Dreamwidth account, and that is over here. And I will link to my tumblr again as well, since if I am to be found anywhere on the Internet these days, it's mostly there.

Having said all that, I don't actually plan on leaving LJ just yet. There will still be KHR reviews posted whenever I get bursts of journal-updating energy, and the occasional memepost whenever I get on a meme posting kick. And fic as well! I never did finish the main one I was working on last year, but well, all that means is that one of my New Year's resolutions comes ready-made. :)

So let me close this post with the GIF meme I did back at the beginning of '11...

Post the 12th gif in your folder and that is how 2012 will turn out for you.



YES.

And here's the 68th GIF so we can preview the next chapter of KHR...



yessssssss. *_*

Well, last year's meme turned out to be only too accurate, so... here's hoping. :D

ETA: ...maybe I was a bit hasty when I said I wouldn't be leaving LJ just yet. Apparently my favorite RP is moving to DW as well, and on top of that I just discovered that DW's 404 pages quote both Star Wars and Firefly. That last may very well be the deciding factor... WE SHALL SEE.

ITP: KHR MOTHERFUCKING ESSAYS.
I'm not broke
makeste
Because I have no patience for comment limits, and because my fingers apparently will just not stop typing words.

This is the response to misamiera’s request from this meme. The KHR request. Which would explain why, three questions in, the word count for the comment was at about 2,000 words.

Click here for 2k words of rambling about Gokudera, Tsuna, and Reborn!Collapse )

ETA: OKAY I'M BACK AND READY TO LIGHT IT UP LIKE IT'S DYNAMITE.

THE REST OF THE MEMECollapse )

THE LAZY FANPERSON'S MEME
First word: Jail
makeste
HI EVERYBODY HERE AT LIVEJOURNAL, HOW Y'ALL DOING.

Not going to spend a lot of time listing the new and improved methods of flaking out that I discovered during this most recent month, but needless to say yet again I am behind on KHR reviews, and this is mostly the fault of work, tumblr, and Skyward Sword (in that order). And to top it off I derped out on NaNoWriMo as well, though I did manage about 12,000 words of fic out of it, so it wasn't as bad as it could have been. Unfortunately the fic in question is long enough that it's still like maybe halfway done, if that. But I'm gonna try to get that finished in December anyway because I feel really weird not having posted at least one (non-crack) fic during this whole year. AND HEY WHAT DO YOU KNOW, THERE'S ONLY ONE MONTH LEFT OF SAID YEAR, WHAT IS EVEN UP WITH THAT ANYWAY.

But before that! I've been craving a good meme lately, but the thing about memes is that I keep derping out on them too. And I got to thinking that one of the main reasons for that is because when it comes to typical fandom memes, there are always parts of the meme that I LOVE, but also parts of the meme that FEEL LIKE HOMEWORK. Like for example, I will ramble on endlessly about my favorite characters, but with most fandoms I really do not have an OTP (because in a lot of fandoms I'm either PANSHIP...UAL, or I do have one or two favorite pairings but I'm not HARDCORE SHIP-IT-TILL-I-DIIEEEE enough to have any interesting insights or opinions regarding those ships), and I don't know enough about the online fandom to know what my unpopular opinion regarding the series is, and I don't remember enough about the canon to pick my favorite quote or top three scenes, etc.

So I was pondering all of this and then I thought WELL FUCK IT, THEN I'LL JUST MAKE UP MY OWN MEME. A MEME FILLED ONLY WITH QUESTIONS THAT I LIKE TO ANSWER! MANIACAL LAUGH, MANIACAL LAUGH.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN HERE IS THAT MEME:

Comment with one of my favorite fandoms and I will tell you the following:

1. My favorite character.
2. ANOTHER favorite character!!
3. My favorite character relationship, and by "relationship" I don't necessarily mean pairing and certainly not OTP, but on the other hand, depending on the fandom MAYBE I DO!
4. The moment/character/THING/WHATEVER that first hooked me on the fandom.
5. One of my favorite moments.
6. A song or track that reminds me of this fandom.
7. One miscellaneous awesome thing about the fandom.
8. One completely random thought I have regarding this fandom.
9. One fic/essay rec, fanart, or fanvid that depending on the fandom I either had lovingly bookmarked or saved onto my hard drive, or only just now found during a two-minute Google search.


HMM, that seems like enough questions, I should probably just STOP NOW ALREADY. So anyways, please post some fandoms if you are so inclined and I will GET TO ANSWERING over the next few days or so. :)


P.S. Since I still did not get to the HS question on my last long-since-died-who-am-I-even-trying-to-kid-anymore meme, for this meme HOMESTUCK IS A GIVEN. Meaning YOU DO NOT EVEN HAVE TO ASK THAT, I am already typing out my Homestuck response to this meme as we speak, because lol THAT SHIT'S OVERDUE.

But first, thanks for all the links in the last post! My tumblr is now off to a nice tumbling start. If anyone else has tumblrs please don't hesitate to add me and I will add you back and THE TUMBLING CIRCLE WILL BE COMPLETE. I just like saying the word tumblr and variations thereof, and will continue to make excuses to do so at any opportunity.

This chapter which I am about to review has nothing to do with tumblr, or tumbling!Collapse )

I got a tumblr!
I walk the world backways

o/ EVERYONE ELSE WHO HAS TUMBLRS, PLEASE TELL ME WHAT YOUR TUMBLRS ARE SO THAT I MIGHT FOLLOW YOUR TUMBLRS AND THUS COMMENCE TUMBLING WITH MAXIMUM EFFICIENCY. Which, if I understand the workings of tumblr correctly, means that my efficiency in virtually every other aspect of my life will take a dive soon afterward. XD

Moving on, KHR 352!

This has nothing to do with the chapter I’m about to review, I'm just mentioning it because I only just heard and it was really a blow to the gut. Wow. The guy was a legend, he’ll really be missed. :(

At any rate, though, we will continue our revisitation (is that a word??) of the last ten or so KHR chapters with chapter 349.

In which Amano and Daily Life had one last sweet summer fling.Collapse )
