So I’m going with Abigail Washburn’s Song of the Traveling Daughter, which is a banjo-y/bluegrass-y song that’s in Mandarin. It takes a while to get goin’, so if you’re impatient, jump to about 45 seconds in.

I’m not good at following directions when I think there are more interesting questions I want to answer, I guess.

fics meme

Tagged by thewasabipea

Fic Meme: In a text post, list ten FICS that have stayed with you in some way. Don’t take but a few minutes, and don’t think too hard — they don’t have to be the “right” works, or even all the same pairing or fandom, just the fics that have touched you or that stuck with you somehow. Tag ten friends, including me, so I’ll see your list. Make sure you let your friends know you’ve tagged them!

Okay, finding 10 was really hard, but I tried not to overthink it and just went through my bookmarks to see which ones I remembered, based on the title, so I know I’m missing a lot of really great fics by people I follow here! These skew older fics, too.

  1. Giddy by Seven Sunningdale, an X-Men: Evolution Rogue/Gambit fic which has disappeared off the face of the internet. Haunted me because of the ending that made me feel betrayed. Thankfully, there was a sequel, but that got a little crazy.
  2. Executive Orders by smartycat, a Gundam Wing Heero/Relena fic that was funny and kept me in the Heero/Relena ship.
  3. The Dragon and the Maiden by Colleen, a Rurouni Kenshin Kenshin/Kaoru fic that introduced me to dragon-and-maiden storylines (I’ve always liked the myth of Eros and Psyche, and this isn’t much of a stretch from that).
  4. Speaking of, Goldtipped Arrow by Rikkitsune, a Rurouni Kenshin Kenshin/Kaoru fic that is Eros and Psyche, but with characters from RuroKen. Sorta stayed with me because there were long passages of just straight up Greek mythology exposition that were hard to slog through.
  5. Little One by Ravyn, a Rurouni Kenshin Kenshin/Kaoru fic that brought me back to my fantasy-loving roots.
  6. A Citizen’s Duty by KC Evans, a Rurouni Kenshin Kenshin/Kaoru fic that might not even be the one I’m thinking of, but basically a modern AU with Kenshin being all badass assassin. There were several like that that I enjoyed, but without re-reading, I can’t remember which I’m thinking of in particular.
  7. Four Minutes by Didodikali, an Escaflowne Dryden/Millerna fic that is somewhat unique in that I will re-read the whole thing from time to time. It’s illustrated too! Also, NSFW illustrations.
  8. At the Top of Your Lungs by pickup.stix, a K-pop Xiah Junsu/Zhang Liyin fic that was very poetic and heartbreaking. Fics like it on Soompi made me branch out into non-rom-com writing (never finished writing that fic though…).
  9. What You Don’t Know by Airplane, a Tangled Rapunzel/Flynn fic that got me into Disney fandom beyond just the, “Yeah, I liked the movie” stage.
  10. Winter’s Heart by glamaphonic, an MCU Sif/Loki fic that helped solidify my fandom, but there are so many Sif/Loki fics that contributed in major ways.

Yeah, okay, that’s a lot of Rurouni Kenshin fic. I think that’s probably the fandom for which I’ve read the most fic, though, in part because I love AU in that fandom, which isn’t necessarily true of all the fandoms I’ve been in.

Okay! Anyway. I won’t tag 10 people, but I will tag, if they haven’t already completed this, psychoticgirl, ferrific, giantspatula, and spinachwrap.

100+ followers free art giveaway!

bechedor79:

I hit 100 followers last week (now 101), and that is very exciting to me, considering I have posted less than 10 things in the past 8 and a half months.

In honor of that small followers milestone, I will do a free art giveaway! I reserve the right to veto the request, but if you are following…

And the winner is… psychoticgirl! Send me an ask for your request!

I’m not familiar with tumblr etiquette, so I tagged you in the post and made the image itself link to one of your posts…

That’s totally fine! Usually, artists prefer a reblog over a repost, but not only was this more than just a repost of my art (and more a separate post that included my art), but you also credited me and linked back to me, and I really appreciate that. So it’s all good! :)

In honor of that small followers milestone, I will do a free art giveaway! I reserve the right to veto the request, but if you are following me, hopefully you have some idea of what kind of art I draw and like to draw. It will likely be a very simple sketch, since I am not only crazy busy, but also really rusty.

I’ll use a random number generator to get a winner, so you can like or reblog this post to enter. I guess I’ll set a deadline of Saturday 9AM EST? Sure. I’ll do that.

Thank you to all who follow me! Even you, bots. Even you. But particularly, thanks to the real people who have an interest in my art. I really appreciate it!
