At last, another chapter. I've been working on this one on-and-off for months - I mean, lookit: November 26th was my last upload. SIGH. I need to get back into writing in my Blue AU, at least people read it. :P

( Fake cut to chapter 19 on Dreamwidth or LiveJournal ) In which Mirii finally meets Sei again, and… well, is even more confused about what to think about this whole mess. Velia and Pau sneak about in the Lanali city, getting so close to the terrorists that their boss would really not be happy if he knew about it! and Brennan finds out exactly what his captors have in store for him.

My html'ing has gone very strange. O_o I seem to have some MASSIVE gaps between some of the paragraphs.
Edit: OK, the html'ing is fixed. :D

( Fake cut to chapter 18 on Dreamwidth or LiveJournal ) In which Mirii meets Yannis’ contact in the foreign lab (and gets even more confused), Brennan moves out to the hospital, Biohazard makes a surprising discovery of his own, and Asenka crosses swords with the sinister doctor Hueil.

My writing mood still hasn’t picked up. Doesn't help that I can never write very well after work, especially when I’m also on-call – normally, I’d have the end of November as annual leave, but we have the pre-regs in the department this year, so I can’t. My count might be ok but it’s turned into horribly disjointed notes of where the story is going, to flesh out later. Highly dissatisfying.

keaalu: I say I am writing, but actually I have a game of solitaire open (nano procrastinate)
( Fake cut to chapter 17 on Dreamwidth or LiveJournal ) In which the twins discuss their limited progress, Eri gets a message, and Asenka starts to have second thoughts about what they’re doing.

…I don’t think my “spy thriller” is as back on track as I’d hoped. ¬_¬

I’ve not been in the greatest mood to write, the last few days. I’ve had some furniture delivered, and I was more excited about that than my writing, haha. (I, um, have also been playing a little of the game in my icon, too. But I am writing, honest!)

( Fake cut to chapter 16 on Dreamwidth or LiveJournal ) In which Mirii visits the market with Yannis (who as always has an ulterior motive) and Sei begins to find out what his abductor is up to.

I was managing to keep ahead of my count once I got into the story, but I slowed up a little over the weekend – I keep having issues with my plot (as in, lack of it), and I don’t want to take the cheat’s way out of adding something completely random. I do mostly want this to maybe be, you know, worth reading, when I’m finished? I have bullied the plot a little bit and noted down some things I want to happen, and in what order, so I hope I’ll be able to pick up the pace a little.

Unrelated: I really wish those bots would leave me alone. I don't WANT to have to ban people from commenting unless they're on my friends list (as I'd get no comments then, haha. ¬_¬). There's nothing more disappointing than seeing you actually have a comment on something! then realising it's just some Russian spambot trying to send you to a phishing site.
keaalu: If plot notes worked towards my nanowrimo word count, I'd be finished already (Nano Plot Notes)
At last, a WHOLE WEEK IN (already? Ugh), I have some new material to post!

( Fake cut to chapter 15 on Dreamwidth or LiveJournal ) In which a little deception* is revealed, more trickery is planned, and Mirii considers her options.

My counts look a little botched from here - I mean, how can I only just be over 50k, when I just posted 6000 words?. Well, I'm starting writing from where I got up to in 2008 - I just managed to scrape past the count, but a lot of it (about 6000 words of it) was notes that I'm not really finding a place to use any more. Therefore, 100,000 is my "50,000" this year. I already know I'm not going to make it, haha.

I just caught these lyrics from "A New England" and it made me giggle far more than it should have. I think that means it must be teatime:
I saw two shooting stars last night
I wished on them, but they were only satellites
It's wrong to wish on space hardware

* - totally didn't just write "a little Decepticon". Slipstream is highly insulted - calm down, bit. You're not even in this universe yet.

Edit: I was just checking where some of my traffic comes from on a couple of my blogs, and... however did someone get to my "Aude Sapere" blog from putting "buy viagra" into a search engine? :P And it's a little disappointing to see people are coming from "website stats and valuation" sites. ¬_¬

Thing-a-day 01!

For today's "thing", I did ARTS!

Sei. At the very, very, VERY end of his patience.

And Iios, looking... eh, I dunno.

These were drawn on some scraps of ECG-machine paper I found in my BNF. There'd been some on the ward in the scrap paper box and I took a coupla bits to write tablet-crushing-instructions on, then never used the, I thought the squarey paper would be an amusing touch for Kirasiinu characters. ;) Markers no happy about the thermal surface, though.


Who, me?

Oh come on, how can you POSSIBLY suspect he might be UP TO SOMETHING...?

I have more artly stupids to be uploading! But first! Because the part of the "comic" I isolated to use as a thumbnail is so stupid, I just wanted to see if anyone could guess what it was about... If anyone was wondering, yes, that is Iios' face. He seems to lend himself so very readily to incredible stupidity.
Have fun.

Edit: Thinking about it, I'm fairly sure everyone's going to be guite disappointed with the answer. But eh, whatever.

Part 2! (Finally glued together nicely - the story, I mean). Follows on from Part One
''Rogue in Velvet'' (part 2) )
More later!
Edit: *finally finished chapter one*
"Part 3" follows
keaalu: (Default)
Start of ''Rogue in Velvet'' (Introducing Eri and Iios - at last!) )
This, I hasten to add, is nothing like the stupidity I (to my later shame) posted the other day. So it's "safe." ;)
Edit: I probably should link part 2 to this, for completeness' sake...
