A few minutes ago, I heard a delicate little tap-tap-tapping at the sliding glass door. All the cats are in, so I figured it was a bug hitting the glass. I looked over.

What popped into view? The teensiest, weensiest little furry black head. With the teensiest, weensiest little white stripe.

Yep. That's a baby skunk.

ADORABLE. Absolutely frickin' adorable wee thing.

But noooooooooooo, no matter how cute, not coming indoors. Nope, nope. Especially since I know Mama Skunk is probably no more than a few feet away.

Bear with me on this one...

  • It's one hell of a party song.
  • I associate it (still) with watching World Series of Poker coverage on cable.
  • The first year I drove to Burning Man on my own, it was the last song I heard on terrestrial radio before I lost signal heading into Gerlach.

Canon: Final Fantasy IX
Pairing: Amarant Coral/Freya Crescent
Canon Level: Teammates

I have capital-o Opinions on Freya and the canonical end to her character arc. Suffice it to say that I do not agree with it, and that my preference for Freya with Amarant shares a common cause with my dislike of her with Fratley but isn't the reason for my dislike by itself. But Freya and Amarant were built up by the game! Sparks practically flew the first time they met, and they had that nice scene outside the auction house where Amarant opened up to Freya, and then they worked together to defeat the Fire Shrine. They had an understanding between them, warrior-to-warrior. Amarant respected Freya, probably liked her company and cared for her well-being. Freya got Amarant, something not many other people did, because I think she saw something of herself in him. I really, truly believe they would have been great together.

Canon: Final Fantasy VII
Pairing: Zack Fair/Cloud Strife
Canon Level: Friends

Somewhere about halfway through Final Fantasy VII, I was so thoroughly confused by what in the world was going on with the plot that I decided to go read fic in the hopes of clearing things up. (It certainly wouldn't have been able to make my confusion any worse.) And promptly fell down the Cloud/Zack hole but good. I like Zack's friendliness and general happy-go-lucky attitude, but it's his complete devotion to the people he cares about that really gets to me--and Cloud is definitely one of those people. I feel like it's only natural that Cloud would be drawn Zack's bright spirit. And the thing that makes them work for me is that Cloud has just as much devotion as Zack, only it's a little harder to see at first. I feel like Zack was able to see a smidgen of that (one of the few who did see Cloud's true strengths), was intrigued, and determined that he had to get to know Cloud.

[personal profile] turlough
He knocks on the door, worried he's not going to be able to enter. Technically the room belongs to the university, but he is paying for it. Mikey's not sure where the supernatural deterrent stops. Gerard solves the problem by muttering "come in, you fucking idiot" when he sees it's him.

Gerard starts ranting the moment the door is closed, where the fuck has he been and mom and dad are worried sick and I don't care if high school sucks, if you don't graduate you're fucked and you've only got two months left anyway, and Mikey can tell he's never going to shut up so he does the simple thing. He kisses him.

Or, at least he tries. He doesn't have his tongue in Gerard's mouth for more than a second before Gerard's backing away. "What the fuck?"

Mikey is struck with an urge to break his neck. It's not anything evil and vampiric; he used to get the same feeling when Gerard took the last sip of coffee from his mug and he had to make a new one to finish getting his fix.

If I were an anime girl, I would apparently be a weak, sickly one, taking meds in order to survive and having executive function issues.

I would also be a vegetarian for reasons of conscience, and would fiercely defend the few people that I deeply cared about.

It just seems very appropriate. And the appropriateness is comforting.

Please poke Claire and tell her to write more.

Hi, writer! [archiveofourown.org profile] phidari here. Just so you know, although I'm providing prompts for each of my requests, you don't need to stick perfectly to any of them. If you have an interesting spin on the topic we matched on, then go for it! As long as it doesn't conflict with a DNW, of course.

(Warning: This letter includes prompts for incest and non-con fic. But there are also prompts for stuff that aren't those things too! Also, I may wind up adding or removing relationships before the sign-up period ends.)

Canon: Naruto
Pairing: Akimichi Chouji/Nara Shikamaru/Yamanaka Ino
Canon Level: Friends/Teammates

Aw yeah, Ino-Shika-Chou trio. I have said before why I like Chouji and Shikamaru, but for all that I adore them, I have to admit that they're not exactly a pairing with a lot of energy or grand passion. Ino would bring that in spades. I think she's fiercely protective of her teammates, albeit not in the most obvious ways, and of the three of them, she's the one who'd kick their butts and refuse to let them feel sorry for themselves. She'll force them to experience life rather than sit on the sidelines watching it. I do feel like Ino has a bit more energy than either Chouji or Shikamaru would be able to handle on their own, but with the three of them I think they'd be a good balance.

Canon: Night at the Museum
Pairing: Jedediah/Octavius
Canon Level: Enemies to Friends

They are two tiny people in a world of giants who have been enemies in the past but are now friends. It's practically a grand romance already. Okay, not really, but enemies to friends to lovers does have a long tradition, and I think they'd enjoy turning their us vs. each other rivalry into an us vs. everybody else thing as they explore the museum together and make a place for themselves in the wider, larger world of the museum.

Wonder Woman (2017) (10/10) → The ending was clunky and if it were any other character I would raise an eyebrow at the cheese bUT??? Everything else blew away any of my nitpicks! Just. SJKDHAKSAHDJH

I loved the Amazons' fighting style! So. Much. The twirling, the tandem attacks, the holding your ground ;A; Spoilers. ) I love the Amazons in general *clutches face* There were old Amazons and WOC and even if most of them were warriors I think there were artisans, farmers, etc. during the first part with young!Diana. Please give me more of them in Justice League ...

The Diana/Steve was also so good; both of them were fleshed out characters whose story arcs and missions were separate from each other even if they did complement and overlap. Spoilers. )

Diana's squad was the best ffffff. Those little lines about Steve's people taking everything from Chief's and Sameer loving acting but being the wrong color ;A; I wanted to yell in the theater. (I need to go through AO3 to find out if there's squad fic for them already.)

This was. This was just a great movie, guys. If you're only going to watch one DC movie this year, this is it.

In honor of the movie :)
