[sticky entry] Sticky: as the love fills up our lungs



Things you need to know about me: I don't do anything in moderation, I flail from Asian media to western media and back, I make arbitrary banners, and I prefer to find my homes in dead fandoms or small ships ☆☆☆

If you're confused about how I navigate the internet, here are important things to note:
   ♦ This journal ([personal profile] aroceu) is for fandom things for me. They also aren't covered in the following:
          ♦ All the fic of interest is at [archiveofourown.org profile] aroceu
          ♦ Come check out this website I made for myself.
          ♦ There's also [community profile] byaro, for non-ficcy things I make for other people.
          ♦ Other journals of note: [personal profile] amaura (personal), [personal profile] reccer (recs), [personal profile] caseus (fic archive)
   ♦ Mostly I hang out at twitter ([twitter.com profile] aroceu), and tumblr ([tumblr.com profile] aroceu) when I can handle the idiocy. Talk to me on there!

Sampler

This is a list of fic that I wouldn't necessarily call my best (because what is objectivity), but more on the side of my favorites, except more coalesced and excluding original fiction, since I'm not posting that on the internet anymore. Put simply, it's the list of "if I wanted you to read my own fic, this is where I'd like you to begin" because, I mean, I have a lot of stories on my AO3 and it can be hard to navigate. And while all the fics I have up are there for one reason or another, sometimes my fics are simply better than others, you know?

It's important for me to note that I mostly write short-form fic, though it's not my specialty, just a commonality (and, if we're being honest, a comfort zone.) I am capable and have written long-form fic before, and this list is a decent mixture of both, I like to think.

Solstice: B-Sides

This was what Solstice was originally supposed to be - an epic that spanned all of Asahi, Daichi, and Suga's high school years with switching POVs - but I neither had the stamina nor the motivation to write it in full, and instead, well, came up with Solstice.

This is what I had of the beginning - it's really terribly boring, sorry.


blooper reel )

When I was writing this, there were at points moments I forgot what I intended for the emotional beats to be so I had to rewrite some of it. This was the most notable part - I hadn't realized I kind of wanted Asahi to have an anxiety attack after running into Daichi, so I'd originally written this genial and easygoing lunch scene. When I realized, I backtracked and fixed it, of course - it's in the fic now - but this is what the end of the shopping scene originally looked like.

plot bunnies (2)

Another plot bunnies dump! Divided by fandom... these were things that are on my to-do list but that I've decided to abandon as premises, so anyone can adopt them for their own uses and whatnot.

Pairings listed I'm not adverse to still, but I'm scrapping them from my to do list so they don't weigh on me anymore |D

burn down my throat like a building: b-side

Originally I had not written burn down my throat like a building to be a drabble collection thing, but as it turns out I knew what direction it was headed in when written that way, so alas.

Anyway, I did start it in a more typical prose manner. Since [personal profile] memorde and I have been doing our prompt battles over at [community profile] twodongs, I'd originally written a part of this for our "past tense" prompt, not our drabble prompt. So this is what had come of it. It was also supposed to be a coffeeshop meetugly, but, well.

(It's pretty obvious that I recycled themes from this and reused them in the final product.)

(This was also originally written in the first person before I'd given up on that, hah.)

That Nothing Can Tear: B-Side (discontinued sequel)

Literally almost a year ago - April 29, 2016 according to my Google Drive - I started to write a coda to That Nothing Can Tear. The reason I stopped and am no longer interested in it is because:

  • I wrote the fic with the intention of not having a sequel, and with having a cliffhanger, thusly
  • SORRY FOR THE SAD ENDING GUYS BUT I ACTUALLY DON'T CARE ABOUT RESOLVING IT BECAUSE THE SAD ENDING IS INTENTIONAL

You can Death of the Author me if you'd like of course (although I'm not dead, at the moment of writing this) but I did write this domestic/fluff pseudo sequel only a few months after writing the original fic. It contains some meta on the fic itself because I'm like that; and it's also in Mark's POV, which is even more interesting and enlightening.

I don't technically consider it to be part of my fic's "canon," but this is all fanfiction so who cares. So here it is.

all time favs // fic recs

A list of my absolute, absolute favorite fics that I love all equally and at maximum capacity for a variety of reasons, over my many years of reading fanfiction on the internet. Definitely not a "best of" list - which can't be qualified, anyway - but more that everything on this list hits me in all the right places, and at the right time(s).

Look, I even made a banner.



this list may or may not be disastrously outdated considering it was first on tumblr )

beta reading

This is a post offering blanket beta reading services (situationally or regularly, depending) because I actually consider myself better at editing than writing and also I've been told that I'm pretty good at it? I suppose that isn't really the best way to sell me, so:

Reccing on reccing

(A post that I've made before and deleted, but with thoughts that I still want to preserve and display. Thus.)

Rec lists are fun! Rec lists are my lifeblood. Not really, but it gives me a lot of satisfaction to display a list of things - fic, in this case - that I want other people to enjoy as much as I have enjoyed them. It also gives me a lot of satisfaction to see myself on rec lists. Everyone wins, in this sense.

As usual, I have opinions on logistics, semantics, and functional reasoning when it comes to reccing and making rec posts. Think of this as just gentle suggestions for why or why not I'm particularly for or against certain elements of rec lists.

Basics that I think every rec list should have per fic:
  • Title
  • Link to fic
  • Rating, or at least a mention in particular if a fic is NSFW/NC-17/Explicit
  • A summary, addendum, or note of some sort advertising why a fic should be read. This can include the author-given summary of the fic and nothing else.
Hopefully we can agree on these. And then we can move onto my actual opinions...

because I always have too much to say )

a purveyor of tragedy, and all the things that follow: b-side (blooper)

Original last scene for a purveyor of tragedy, and all the things that follow. In its place I had written the three shorter (altogether longer) scenes at the end, with all of their POVs; but this was just Erica's. I didn't feel particularly like this fit or wrapped the fic up properly, even though it does display the domesticity I wanted to establish in the end.

I think it works better with the hesitance between Mark and Erica rather than the security of Mark and Eduardo in the end. Mark and Erica's relationship always had a tension and was on the line for this entire fic, so it felt far more fitting to end with at least growing the reestablishment of that rather than a sudden jump into security about their relationship and then overlooking it for Erica/Eduardo for true finality, when Erica/Eduardo was more of a plot device in this fic than anything.

we are for each other then: b-side (blooper)

This was the original scene for we are for each other then, part three, scene two (Eduardo's first POV scene in that section.) I didn't like it because I made Eduardo way too genial and easy-to-forgive, when both realistically and in my head I picture her much more frosty and not easily forgiving and distrustful of Mark. Because, you know, considering.

Anyway, so the current version definitely has that reluctance and antagonism, for contextual reasons within the movie and also spurring the, like, next 13000 words of that scene. But this is the friendlier version that I had first written before I decided I didn't like it. This, like all other scenes of the fic (with a few exceptions) were originally written on my phone, so there is no formatting.

Wow, another self-rec post! WHO IS SURPRISED.

This is all relative to their respective years. Funnily enough, I'm pretty good at remembering how I felt about certain stories at certain times. This, like the rest of this list, should not be much of a surprise.
