melredcap: Cute chibi sketch of me by Asuka (Default)
Here is your handy-dandy quick reference to What Mel And Christy Are Up To, writing-wise, in the hopes that it will save our time and yours when you want to know what's up, what's next, are we going to revive X fic, are we making progress, blah blah blah. Please note:

**NAGGING WILL GET YOU NOWHERE.** In fact, nagging is counterproductive: Mel's writing juices positively dry up when she's faced with "write more write faster want want want", and then even Christy with a cattle prod can't keep things going.

Questions about progress on any of the fics listed here will be either ignored, or answered with something very brief along the lines of "check the sticky". Polite questions about anything not listed here by name will get polite answers. Rude questions about anything at all will get a Gundam despatched to stomp your house flat.

State of the Mel: Directing minions!
State of the Christy: Busy!

State of the Website: Back up at a new provider!

State of the Other Websites: Since the collapse of the old House of Torment site, we've started putting our work up elsewhere. It'll take a while, but we'll eventually have full archives on and AO3.

State of the Writing:

- Hijacked by the plunnyjam!
--- Nurarihyon no Mago fic, Celadon: Up to Chapter 1.
--- Bleach sillyfic, Fight or Foreplay: Up to Chapter 6.
--- GW/Honorverse crossover: Up to Chapter 2.
--- GW/Bleach crossover, Bankai Wing: "Duo and Wufei and Heero and Nemu and Still Ghosts, Oh My" has been posted! Go read it!
--- Log Horizon fic, Respec: Chapter 2 is in progress, about 2/3 done!
Normal service will resume as soon as we can unjam our brains.

- Demon of Justice: Up to Chapter 43.
- Warped Mirrors: Up to Chapter 28.
- Alarums and Excursions: Up to Chapter 14.
- Rebuilding: Paused. We plan to resume it once DoJ is either completed, or at a point where switching between it and Rebuilding doesn't require a full brain reset.
- Viri & Hath: Part 2 started and percolating in Mel's brain. Part 5(?) already written and waiting for its turn.
- Everything Else: Hiding from the bunnies in the back of our heads. Progress is possible but not planned at this time.

Wrestled from the teeth of the plunnies at great cost to my personal equilibrium, I present the first chapter of a Nurarihyon no Mago fic for your (hopeful) enjoyment! Warnings for blood, a bit of ick and some fairly mild language.

A few things that may help if you haven't read/watched the canon:

A picture of Shouei (mmmmmmmmmm :3~)

Kyousai (creepy but not bad-looking)

This fic is set at around chapter 165 of the manga, during the 'Tokyo Tag' arc; this is after the end of the second anime season. Enemy youkai (the Hundred Tales clan) have launched an attack on Tokyo (the home ground of the Nura clan), deliberately involving humans.

When characters refer to "the Third", they mean Rikuo(-sama), the third head of the Nura clan.

The Kantou Oozarukai (the Kantou Great Ape Alliance), also known as the Hihi-gumi after its founder, is a sub-clan of the Nura-gumi made up of -- you guessed it -- ape-youkai. :P

/nerdfistbumps to you if you can identify Naoko's book and the game it comes from! (/nerdfistbumps to Nemi-chan, who got it right away.)

Celadon chapter 1, part 1 )

*looks at word count on file*

...Wow. Um. You're, ah, an enthusiastic little rabid rabbit, aren't you?

Yeah. Aheh. The Nurarihyon no Mago fic has now well and truly passed the size that will fit in a single LJ post and is galloping onwards with no sign of losing speed yet. It's also given me about 3k words worth of snippets for later chapters and future plot notes, so... mmmmyeah this one's going to be sticking around for a while. XD

Yeah, you read right. Productive writers' block, that's what we've got. That's not the sort of writers' block where you sit there and can't think of anything to write; it's the sort where you sit at your laptop, half-finished chapter open in front of you, and you can think of fifteen different things to write but none of them fit in the chapter you're trying to finish.

DoJ 40 is half finished. We know exactly what we want to happen next, and who to, and what the consequences will be, and we have evil ideas about hints to drop regarding things you haven't found out about, and yet the words will not line up. The file is staring at me right now. Accusingly. That little blinky cursor knows how long it's been since I added anything (as opposed to tweaking the occasional word in the stuff I've already written), and it does not approve. There are words in my head that will line up in the form of fic, but they don't belong to DoJ. They don't belong to any of our current fics, in fact, and while we're quite used to being plunnied by New Things all the f'ing TIME, we are not used to having those plunnies jam together in our brains and refuse to let the Current Things' plunnies through.

So I called Christy, partly to say "Er, sorry, I haven't added anything to the fic since I visited last, all my plunnies want to do Nurarihyon no Mago," and her response boiled down to "That's okay, all my plunnies want to do Bleach."

Um. Well then.

In the interests of unsticking the plunny-jam, there's a Nurarihyon no Mago fic being written, and there might need to be a Bleach PWP or similar done as well before we get back on track. We're sorry. Hopefully you'll like them?
