help_japan (also here on dreamwidth) is a multi-fandom auction to raise money for ongoing relief efforts in Japan. This auction mirrors previous fundraising efforts such as help_haiti. The outpouring of offerings in the last few days has been pretty amazing. I'm taking the plunge and currently have a fanfic offering up (Saiyuki and others), which is located here.

If you have a moment, consider browsing through the tagged offerings that are currently listed here for livejournal and here for dreamwidth, and consider making a bid or two... or show support by posting up a new auction offering. Every little bit helps.

An update.....

Ah, it's been ages since I've posted anything here. I have hopes, now that summer is approaching, that I'll have more time for playing in LJ and can prevent things from gathering too much dust. We'll see. ^^

I did want to post this, however, while it was on my mind.

Concerning the mysterious youkai guy from chapter 5 of Saiyuki Blast--potential spoilersCollapse )

Ooh, sparkly!

There are a million and one other things I should be doing--and so of course I am procrastinating and stumbling across random gems on the internet. ^_^

The Don't Know Much About History Kink Meme (Multi-fandom)


Passing info on through my little patch of grapevine. samsarapine and co-mods are setting up a recs community for fanfiction/fanart/videos related to the works of Minekura Kazuya. Joining the comm is easy, and each week one or more recommendations for various fan-produced works will be delivered right to the friends page of community members. Official opening of the comm will be October 3rd, but this week will feature a series of previously-posted recs by 7veilsphaedra. The banner says it all:

nitro_recs: A Kazuya Minekura Fandoms Rec Community.

On a completely unrelated note, a week or two ago I was involved in a discussion about the complete absence of Homura and company in the main Saiyuki manga storyline. I was sure I'd seen a short manga installment that featured the trio, and went on a mad hunt for some scans, but turned up nothing.

Of course, in the middle of looking for something else, I practically tripped over scanlations of it hosted at flemmings fic site. The story is short (and the clothing on the Saiyuki boys gives a clue that this is a pre-Reload work), but the images are well worth paging through. :)

Homura Side Story

Done!! :D

I know I haven't been much of a presence on Livejournal lately--but I actually have been writing. In fact, this year's assignment for the Saiyuki AU fic challenge 7thnight_smut has just been finalized and submitted. (Even a few days before deadline, go me!)

All entries for the challenge are initially posted anonymously, so its against the rules to talk much about individual stories at this point. Suffice to say that this particular piece really has required two full months of planning and writing, as my very patient beta can attest. :D

Posting of fics to 7thnight_smut will begin on August 26th. My impression is that there are a record number of participants this year, and archives of fics from previous years are available to folks who join the community, so it's definitely a place worth checking out. :D

Reporting in and some Saiyuki news....

Life is calming down a bit, so I thought I'd give a quick post after my long absence from lj. Still not really writing yet, and still only lurking intermittantly so there's lots I've missed (and am still missing). Sometime soon, I'll probably do a recs post for some fics I've managed to catch here and there.

Had to post, though, to share veronicacode's news from Minekura-sensei's Nitro blog about the latest with Saiyuki Reload. In addition, some scans from the latest issue of Zero Sum have been posted courtesy of arisu_krd. Needless to say, big spoilers here. Ah, I can't wait to see the full chapter.... ^_^



I hate the month of April. ...And it's not even really April yet.

My life has been stuck in pre-April for over two weeks now, and I just... can't keep up with everything.

I guess this post is just to let folks know that I'll (continue to) be away from LJ life until things calm down a bit elsewhere. *sigh* I'll be back again when I can.
