WHAT'S THE INSPIRATION?


I tell myself that I'm going to move away from fanfiction and focus only on original fiction. 

But, you know, fanfiction is where I started, and when I'm in the right mood, it's quite fun.  And as long as it stays fun, I have no problem writing it.  I think the important thing is that I keep writing.

Lunaescence is a little slow.  I want to add an influx of quality fanfiction that I know will be wanted, so I'm going to open up requests.  


DETAILS AND WHAT I WILL NOT WRITE


Basically, I want to make your fanfiction dreams (within reason) come true!  If you've ever wanted an Ouran story with a love triangle between the reader and Tamaki and Kyoya, you got it.  If you'd like to see a Death Note story that's set with the reader and L at the orphanage, that's cool.  If you want a Digimon story where you rescue Matt from being blackmailed to date June, I'm all over it.

Each request I fulfill will most likely be short (500+ word) to keep my inspiration moving.  I've done the math, and I usually only write in spurts of 500-1000 words when I sit down in one go, so this makes sense to keep the writing steady.  Your finished product may very well be longer.  Depends on when I'm happy with it.

I reserve the right to deny any request, though I will try my best to accomodate.  I don't want to stifle your dreams, but I also don't want to feel uncomfortable when writing.

With that said, here are some specific stipulations:

  1. This will be strictly reader-inserts.  I like to leave the reader as blank of a canvas as possible without giving her a personality of a cardboard box, so bear this in mind as you make requests.  I will not accept OC or canon x canon requests.
  2. No excessive violence or gore.  It's just not my type of writing.  It's okay if it happens, but I don't want to depict it.
  3. No real people.  I think that's weird and could potentially lead to lawsuits, so no thank you.
  4. Please don't ask for smut.  I find it uninspiring and often unrealistic.  Call me boring, but I don't want to write about sexual intercourse over and over again.  I may pleasantly surprise you, but please don't request it directly.

MAKING YOUR REQUEST


To keep them all in once place, please make your request either in this blog or in the reviews (actual link to come — I obviously don't have anything to publish right now).  If you're really against reviewing or want to remain anonymous, shoot me an email.

 

  1. Pick your pairing.  This can be romantic or it can be platonic.  It's up to you. 
  2. If you desire any particulars, let me know.  Less is more.  If you flood me with too many details, I may suggest that you write it yourself.  I write best with a short or no prompt.  You can give me a particular situation, time, place, etc.
  3. Please don't harry me.  I don't enjoy the feeling of being micromanaged.  If I can't or won't take your request, I will let you know.
  4. I'm not your mother, but a word of thanks goes a long way.  ;)  

 


Thank you for your request and entrusting your fanfiction dreams to me!


FANDOMS


Note: You'll notice that the vast majority of my fandoms are animation.  I'm kind of weirded out by writing real-people stuff.  I don't know why.  I think having a real person's portrayal of a character portrayed by me feels a little... violative?  I'm probably just a weirdo.  Feel free to ask if I'm familiar with any real-people fandoms — admittedly, I didn't think very hard about them when I made this list.

It's also possible that I've completely forgotten to add something.  It doesn't hurt to ask, if you're curious.

I don't read manga.  Assume all applicable are anime.

And finally, I will also write for my original fiction.  This means that if you want something for a character from Jaharan Love or Vampires, Villains, and Violins or any other original fiction of mine, the request is on the table.

+I enjoyed the Avengers movie.  I've seen other Marvels films here and there, but all heroes from the movie I'm familiar with.







 

++Confession: I've played many Zelda games but have never finished one in its entirety.  This is an unpopular opinion, but while I love Link as a character (Other than being valiant, he's a blank palette, which is perfect!), I find the games themselves very repetitive.  Oh, and I loathe water dungeons. 







 

+++I didn't finish Magi.  I watched up to episode 20 and felt no need to continue.

A Prelude to Penguiduck

Penguiduck Wednesday August 2, 2017

Welcome, welcome.

 

I'm pleased you're here.  I suppose this means that you either follow my writing, am curious to learn more about me, or want to see me embarass myself (which I am positively inclined to do in some way, shape, or form). Or maybe it's a combination of the above.  That's all fine.  I'm just happy that you're taking the time out of your day to visit my blog.

 

This is a story... about stories.

 

I'm that weird type of person who believes that everything should be experienced through a narrative.  That might be why I found history dull in school, but I love historical fiction.  If a character or idea is interesting, then I am interested.  You'll find that I take character development very seriously.  I refuse to bend my fictional reality unless I feel that I am being true to those I am writing about and for.  

Writing has become such an integral part of me that not a day goes by without me thinking about a fictional world in some capacity.  It makes me tingle with pride and giggle like a little girl; it relaxes me and brings me a sense of accomplishment that I can't find anywhere else. It allows me to master my thoughts, breaking down each tendril of concepts that I could never hope to do otherwise.  

 

Yet, life can be a bit unaccommodating.

 

I work full time as a financial advisor — basically, I make money by telling others what to do with their money.  I never thought of myself much as a technical person, but my career is working out well so far.  My customer satisfaction surveys are high, I get along well with my supervisor, and I operate with the highest of ethical standards.  The industry's not ideal for me, but I don't think most folks love their jobs.  Really, if it puts food on the table, a roof over my head, and I don't loathe it, I'm satisfied.  My work environment is excellent.  I am blessed to have a far better employer than that of most Americans.

I am engaged, and our wedding is November of this year, which (as of today's blog post) means that I have about three months until the big day.  I've loaded myself with tons of DIY projects, and I'm now beginning to realize the extent of the work I've assigned myself.  There are still many vendors to contact, preferences to establish, and people to placate.  My dog, the non-human love of my life, is destined to be my ringbearer.

My time is scarce.  Finding time to write can be challenging.  I am a night owl, but our societal standards seem to deem it fit that I wake up at the crack of dawn each morning.  Because of this, I get very limited sleep — I'm really just some form of perpetually exhausted pigeon at this point, which is difficult for me to remedy since there's so much to be done and so little time.  You can probably understand why I don't update as often as I do.

 

I treasure your reviews.

 

I really do.  They can make me smile, laugh, blush, and jump for joy all at once. I would argue that there is nothing better than the feeling of getting an email notification and seeing that there is a thoughtful review left for one of my pieces.  I try to respond (even though I'm not so great at it sometimes), but I think the best way to show my appreciate is to just keep writing (writing writing).  

Truly and sincerely, on some rough days, it's reviews that keep me going, so thank you.

 

I'm still here.

 

I promise.  I will finish my fics.  I don't know when this is going to happen, but you'll notice that I'm pretty persistent.  I finished Jaharaan Love, didn't I?  Even though it took six years, I finished it and gave it the ending that it deserved. I have that same dedication to my other fics. 

You'll see.
