Sorry for such a shitty entry but I know if I stop making daily entries I'll go months without updates and I'm TRYING to keep some sort of life-record so I can remember shit in the future, so yeah.
Nothing much today, domestic stuff and fic, mainly. Now is naptiem, yup.
In other news, my Cunning Plan to relocate shoes has worked. Definitely need some kinda dividers, because they don't stack as-is, but yes. Progress!! It feels weird, though, when I look at it. I'm hoping that will fade as I get used to it Being Different.
Tomorrow is be clean barfroom day, and hopefully also getting this freaking sorting-out-old-papers stuff done day, I didn't work on it today because reasons. And by reasons I mean I went op-shopping with Mama because she needed a thing, which is super draining. (Not that Mama BELIEVES me when I tell her this, but. Small steps. Small.)
Fandom: Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters
Pairings: Yami no Yuugi (Atemu) x Mutou Yuugi
Word count: 6.650
Warnings: full man-on-man action
Summary: At the feast of Giovedi Grasso, the height of Carnevale in Venice, Yuugi entertains the crowd with stories about his travels all over the world, but he hasn’t counted on one listener in particular: Atem Bellincioni El Sayed, son of an Italian duchessa and a diplomat from Egypt, who takes a particular shining to him…
Author’s note: Written for the Summer Smut Exchange Challenge, as suggested by my lovely writing partner in crime. Also doubles as prompt # 38, Touch, for the fanfic100 challenge @ LiveJournal. Choice of pairing: Yami no Yuugi x Yuugi. Prompt: In a historical period and some things happen. Settings/moods: in the city. ‘Amore a prima vista’ is Italian for ‘love at first sight’. Yes, I know it’s cheesy. :) This fic doesn’t pretend to be historically accurate. Feedback is a great thing. Vivaldi’s Four Seasons is a great musical inspiration. :)
Key: ----------------- = scene change
( Amore a prima vista )
Also there's a hot dog event on the pet site, draw a hot dog custom and get it uploaded for free, and even though I don't like hot dogs and wasn't planning on doing one, well...
Still. A LOOOOT of stuff going out! Which means I have more room for things, so HOPEFULLY I'll be able to get some stuff more organised! Haven't 100% decided what I'm going to move into that space, there's a bunch of possibilities. Might move my tech stuff? But I have hopes that I can rearrange my desk so that it both fits on here and is easily accessible, so maybe not... *ponders* May have to play around with things until I find something I'm happy with, honestly.
Though I just Had An Idea - not for this stuff, but for some other stuff - so I might try that out before I actually go to sleep. Yes. Goal for this break, btw, is to find somewhere to keep my shoes, so they're not in a pile on the floor for another six months, hahaha.
We had the basic idea to do this scene as a parody of Hamlet, complete with dialogue in Shakespearean verse, way back when we began work on The Phantasmal Malevolence. That was several years before Ian Doescher wrote and published William Shakespeare's Star Wars - which, together with its sequels parodying the other movies in the saga, is hilarious and well worth your money if you're in the market for more Star Wars humour.
Anyway, since we know people will mention Doescher's work if we don't do it first, rest assured that this comic was written with inspiration derived completely independently. It seems that mixing Star Wars and Shakespeare is just such a natural thing to want to do that it evolved spontaneously multiple times.
But! I did do stuff today! Tidied shit, went for a walk with my parents, started clearing out some old uni stuff - which, speaking of. I've been going through and throwing out TEN YEAR OLD ESSAYS, what the actual fuck is this shit. Just. How has it been ten fucking years since I started this whole higher education thing??
Also did a bit of art and read things and yeah. Plenty of stuff happened! Just um whoops late now. >>;
He did mention that some of the voicing might be a disappointment (which I take to mean that they couldn't get all of the original VAs) and that the animation was done by a different studio, but overall he thought fans would like it..... so I'm standing there doing a 'Happy Dance', going "YES!" because I never cared for the Geneon Studios voices (not that they were BAD, per se; they just weren't Brandon, David, Greg and Illych) -- and Greg has this gleeful smirk on his face.....
So that might have made the $20 at the door worth it.... but just barely. Daughter was starting to wilt, so we left earlier than we might have usually. I HAD planned to go back for the Masquerade, but when we got home, Daughter was getting a migraine, and Husband had had a disappointing day as well -- our friend B was supposed to come over for the evening while Daughter and I were at the Con, but literally cancelled at the last minute..... so I decided to stay home and order in Husband's favorite pizza.
I've said it before, I know, but this might be our last ANIME-ZING, unless their programming gets a boost next year....
