Where coffee is concerned.

I've been spoiled. I usually buy coffee from cafes, and now...instant coffee just makes me grimace when I drink it. Ughhh.

On a fic.

FFXIII, in particular.

I wrote this in between doing an assignment, damned scenes wouldn't get out of my mind until I wrote it out. But they are pretty short, so my assignment is safe. I just finished and submitted my assignment actually. At 5.57am. :D And I'm still fairly awake because of the coffee.

But, here.

bits and pieces.

Quite possibly the only fandom where I don't really feel like putting a pairing in. Or I tried, rather...and found out I couldn't quite do it. Oh well. Unbeta-ed because it's just too short to bother Raerae, and I'm too lazy. Possibly weird and odd phrasing. But I blame assignment as distraction.

As for FFXIII fic recs...here. If there are fics that you think should go in there, do tell me.

Damn. I think I'm on caffeine high. >_>

The stuff is terrible black. However, I find that with good vanilla or chocolate ice cream it's actually pretty good.
And coffee from the cafes around here (all of them, not just Starbucks) tend to oversteep, oversweeten, or both.

Oo, FFXIII. I started one, but I don't think it's ever going to be finished. It also doesn't really have pairings, so I know where you're coming from. I've got a meeting in ten minutes, but I'll check it out tonight sometime.

Who're you calling Raerae. *shakes fist Doraemon-style*

I think Call Me Lightning (http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6030829/1/Call_Me_Lightning) should be added. I've read some of the ones already on the list and agree; I'll check the rest out...probably tonight too.

I'm sure you are. This is how to get Aki to post: alcohol and caffeine highs.
Are you trying to make DY jealous of your caffeine-drinking ability?

Yes. Yes, it is terrible black. I can't even begin to fathom how my dad drinks it black and with nothing else.
There's...good coffee around here. Though part of it's probably cause coffee is a very...integrated part of Australian's culture. There's this one time when I went for a lecture, approximately 70% of the class had a coffee cup on the table.

Finish your fic. 8D Or send me whatever you wrote. I wanna see the difference. And on that food thing...I haven't decided if I'm joking on that or not, actually. And Diana would balk at me if I use Claire. Hrmmmmmmmn.

I could edit the post and put Doraemon, if you prefer...

I think I read that - skimmed, sort of; it's on hiatus, so I didn't really give it anything but a cursory glance. XD;

Maaaaybe. I haven't drank this much coffee on ages. I don't drink much coffee unless if I really need to stay awake, anyway. So....maybe. 8D
I'm not that mean. D: Just so happens I had a deadline today, is all.

Some coffee's damn good black. Like the ambrosia that DY got me. Good stuff.
Ahahahaha. It's integrated here, too, but more as a morning-fix-gotta-have-it thing than any attempt at culture.

I don't know how to finish it. I'll send you what I have...Maybe next time you're on MSN? DY can deal. The English speakers here who know what an eclair is - meaning a lot of readers, from what I've seen - are going to be seriously disturbed. 'Sides, "Claire" makes me think of "Clare," which is a good reference.

:domoface:


I was put off by the hiatus thing too, but...give it a shot. From what I remember, it has serious potential.

*snickers*
"I'm not that mean," huh. Suure. This from skel-wolf-lady.

Mrgh. Maybe.

Um...dunno when I will get on msn. I gotta head off for class soon, actually, so email would be preferable unless if you're actually on this instant. The whole fiasco actually just amuses me. But...ahaha. I don't know. We will see. I'm not even sure if I'd be inspired enough to add more scenes to it, and I'm not quite sure if it's worth having Diana going...going all ">:O" at me if she ends up reading it. I dunno what's this 'Clare' thing about though.

Not an answer. Y/N? 8D

Problem with hiatus is that when I want more, there's nothing.. if I'm bored during class, maybe, I guess..

*waves dismissively*
This and that are two entirely different matters. :P

I'm on right now, and I'd rather drag-drop than attach. *snickers* What, you'd be amused at DY, I'd be not traumatized by my favorite video game char turning into a pastry. Win-win.
Clare is the main character of Claymore. You seriously haven't read that manga? o_O;;;;;

No. Thank you kindly. >_>


*snorts* As if people update conveniently even when they're not on hiatus. Well, if you try it, let me know what you think.

*amused*
This is a character trial; everything is related. :D

Oh. I did. It's just been a while...haven't been keeping up to date with it.

I may be more inclined to read if it's actually updated. But, yeah. We will see.

is not.

Okay. I'd sfjkadlf at you, but I haven't been keeping up with it very well either. S'long as you haven't heard of it even; that'd just be a crime.

Aa. Yeah, there probably are. If you're going to continue it, send for betaing? Or send it with the continuation. I'm free tonight, though, so maybe that'd work out.

Speaking of reviews, go review this (http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6106965/1/Like_You_Mean_It). D<

'Kay, so I tried the other fics. Metamorphosis was great until two certain words in sequence: "Lightning submits."

RAGE. quiet contemplation FURTHER RAGE.

Apparently I can't read a Light/anybody fic straight through without feeling ill.

Why is it that whenever they pair Light with a guy, she always, ALWAYS has some kind of damsel-in-distress alter ego that magically appears for at least a few seconds? Even the best of them can't seem to avoid it.

I think the reason I'm fond of the Light/Fang pairing is because it's the only one I've seen so far people can write without screwing up Light's characterization somehow. Can. Even with Fang it's not a given.

*blink* Damsel in distress didn't even cross my mind when I read that part. I...didn't think that was what the author was trying to say, but...lol. I mean...yeah. I don't think that was the intention when the word submit is used.

Effervescence is probably your kind of thing, then. Paints Fang in a different light though.

From that one fic? It was excellent otherwise. Just those two words and the implicit she-caved-in-and-went-back.

I think I found that comm when it was in its infancy...Might go check it more thoroughly in hopes of an LJ-only gem.

Everyone's allowed their own moment of weakness, I'd think...but that's just me. Probably why I didn't mind it.

I joined it recently. There were some pretty nice fics, including the one I linked. Some entries are locked though. I remember reading a funny Snow-centric one...with a Lightning interpretation I quite agree with; she's just not as...she's not going to punch him at every opportunity she gets, and that fic showed that. 8D Too lazy to search for it at the moment though. You've more than enough reading materials at the moment, anyway.

I put myself in her shoes too much. I'd hate any kind of weakness like that, and (obvious bias coming up) I'm sure she would too.

Mm...Yeah, I'll take a look.
What, one can never have too much reading material. Can has link sometime?

F. I thought so, but couldn't quite remember until I started reading it. I've tried Effervescence before, actually. I can barely get to the damn letter, and there's no way in hell I'm getting through the letter.

I'm not even going to bother with a "no offense" disclaimer: that author doesn't write, she just eats thesauruses, drinks maudlin prose, and vomits the combination out.

*grumpy*

*blink* Lol. Um...ahahah. Your reaction amuse me. For some strange reason, I can't really remember what I read. I do remember reading it pretty late at night though, and thought it was an interesting way to characterize Lightning.

Hmmm. I suppose this means I've to go back and re-evaluate this fic again later when I have a fresh brain. But I suppose you think it doesn't fit in the comm?

I only intended to have fics that contains good characterization in there. So yeah, another opinion - for any of the fics there - would be good. I'll give that fic a look again, later.

Lulz. You're right. It's a book of thesaurus. I stopped after the first three paragraphs.

Why didn't I notice it earlier..? >_> I think I must have instinctively skimmed, got the general idea, and forgot all about it..

You better tell me if any of the other fics in the comm suffers from my neglect. Shouldn't have created the comm while I had too much caffeine. D8
