My First True Christmas
Corrin never saw a winter like this.
Sitting by the window in a study inside Castle Shirasagi, holding a cup of tea in his hands, Corrin watched the snow hug every building like a day-old baby—new and clingy.
He hummed the tune of a song under his breath as he looked at the landscape outside. The same colorful yet esoteric landscape he had studied from this spot a thousand times before greeted his gaze. So different from the one shrouded in darkness from the constant clouds back at the Northern Fortress. Back then, Corrin spent a lot of his free time lying on the roof or the training ground, watching the dark clouds float by and waiting for them to open and show him a glimpse of the sky he had never seen before. Nowadays, he could put himself at a window or the topmost spire and watch the landscape stretch as far as the eye could see.
“You are the ocean’s gray waves.” One of the lyrics of his song slipped out against his will. When it did, Corrin clenched his te

Betterment
Betterment
Maka made the turn for her thirtieth lane. In the water she had no worries, no homework, no nagging Soul or irritating Spirit. She found her bliss in solitude. She moved with robotic precision but organic fluidity, stroke after stroke nailed to perfection. This was her therapy. She was stress-free, better than when she was this morning, and ready to pursue more foes on Death’s list.
77. She already had Arachne’s Witch Soul. 23 more and Soul would be a Death Scythe.
But, the last leg of the race was always the toughest.
Maka could feel herself plateauing. After all, she failed to reap the soul of that last bog-standard Evil Human. Now, it could be out there doing God-knows-what.
Suddenly, Maka had enough of swimming and felt practicing her scythe technique would be best. She went from the pool to the dressing room, dried off, put on combat clothes, and headed straight to the dojo. It was a weekend, so nobody was really around other than security that she

Pokemon: Nova and Antica (Chapter 17)
Solace and Ease
The difference between the paths to Fimbulvetr Town and Ifrit City was like night and day. Gone were the oppressive bustles of the wintertime and every figure clad in thick duffle or dark wool. Now was the time they walked in airy clothes. Almost every eye hid behind sunglasses, and hair flew freely in the breeze.
“This weather is starting to feel up my alley,” May said, smiling as she used one hand to act as a visor to look out in the distance. Her other hand hung her coat over her shoulder. She and her friends might not have entirely fit the aforesaid description, but they were close – and the people they spotted every now and then certainly fit better.
“Not mine,” a breathless Winter grumbled, fanning herself with her snow cap. “If it’s not too much trouble, let’s stop at the Pokemon Center so I can change.”
“It’s no big deal, Winter,” Brock said. “I can stock up on supplies while yo

Last Moments
Summary: What started as a run-of-the-mill encounter with a gang becomes something Shizuo never expected, especially coming from Izaya of all people. Shizuo comforts a dying Izaya as the two comes to terms with one another.
 
"Not this again…" Shizuo muttered to himself. He had just finished a day of debt collecting with Tom, and was on his way home when he found himself surrounded by a group of hoodlums brandishing various make-shift weapons. With a drawn-out sigh, Shizuo took one last dreg of his cigarette before dropping it and putting it out with his shoe.
 
“It's been a while since something like this has happened,”</i> Shizuo thought while he looked at the men that had surrounded him. They seemed to be typical thugs picking a fight for no reason, but Shizuo knew better. Although, it had been a few years since Izaya sent gangs out to do his dirty work.

Things I Learned as a Writer
You’re competing with the entire entertainment industry.
If you thought competing with just books are hard enough, let’s tack on some extra pressure. What do people usually do to kill time? Play a game, watch TV, read a book… See where I’m going with this? Those three things offer a HUGE selection of options. Unfortunately, our society is visually-based, so reading is not exactly a person’s first choice (it surely isn’t mine).
Heck, you know how long it took me to realize James Bonds started off as a book?
“Don’t judge a book by its cover”
… is a lie. This goes back to my aside about visual-based media. Unless your piece was supplemental illustrations, the cover is the only “picture” you might have. If it looks terrible or bland, people won’t gave it a second glance even if the story itself is excellent.
If it looks extremely cool, odds are you might have several eyes on it.
Word of mouth is your best friend.

[Fate] Rider X Male!Reader
Finally!! I have finished writing a fanfic for my fave girl in the entire Fate series!! Rider/Medusa!!
Since I've been playing Fate/Grand Order for a while now, it motivated me to write a fanfic for my fave girl!
Also! For those other Fate fans there, the Holy Grail War here is much like the one in Fate/Apocrypha, meaning there is the Red and Black Faction.
Anyways, let's get started
The Fate Series or the Nasuverse does not belong to me! Nor is the preview image, which is her official art on Fate/Grand Order by Takeuchi Takashi.

Outskirts of Komotini, Greece.
A young man with (h/c) hair, (e/c) orbs and about 175 cm or 5’9 tall, wearing a hooded leather jacket, black cargo pants and black rubber shoes, ambled quietly through the dirt path surrounded by lush green trees and their brown trunks, with the wind quietly blowing through the air with a soft whistle, the birds around him chirped harmoniously. The young man was humming a song silently, the only evident sound

I Owe an Explanation and Need Help
"I must be honest with myself. For those who have been waiting for Dreams are Reality the Animated chapter, it is highly possible that it will not be ready until the end of January or early February. I am a one person team and do not know of any animators who would be willing to help. I am trying to find ways to expand out and ask for help, but it seems to be failing. I am very sorry for this delay, but this task has been full of problems and glitches from the start and needs additional time to keep the quality at its max."
   This is what I said a week back about my problems on Dreams Are Reality. I am back to confirm that I will not be getting Chapter 1 until February. There is a problem in my editing program and the developers are releasing a new update for it in 3 weeks to fix it. I am truly sorry, but with problems and school getting in the way, the only thing I can do is push the release date back further until I get the right time to work on it. Videos ar

Beta-Bitching #16 – Body Language (pt1)
Welcome to Beta-Bitching, where it’s time to present you with some more holiday-time What The Fa-la-las…And since it’s also request time… 
Justpeachee had sent me a suggestion about covering prone vs supine, as well as choked vs chocked, when I started going through The List, checking it twice, and noticing just how many of the issues had something to do with the body and bodily functions.  Answer: a damn lot!  So let’s at least knock a few naughties off the list so you can rock your body write! (-ing)  We’ll start with peachee’s…
 
Both prone and supine refer to lying positions, but lying prone is on one’s belly, while supine is on one’s back.  (Take out the u, and it’s the spine they’re lying on.)  I’ve seen prone used to describe ei

Holy CRAP. Somebody tell why my semesters seem to get busier and busier?

In any case, I finished my last final today, and beyond some grad school wrap-up, that's it for my second semester. I will tell you; although I've accustomed to prioritizing now, I am starved for some writing and video gaming. My muse has been crying out to me for weeks now, and it's ready to play. There's also some video games I'm prepared to catch up on. So, pretty much, my break is going to consist of playtime. And I LOVE it!

Activity


Made a ton of progress. Expect a journal sometime next week letting everyone know what's been up.

Fans of Troubled Souls and those awaiting Revolution please keep waiting. Ya'll are awesome for your patience. Seriously. I couldn't ask for more.

Strong Points: I am an extremely versatile writer. There's little I can't or won't write. I also have a creative imagination to match. This is why I can up with a lot of stories: coming up with a plot and characters come naturally to me, and they will be fleshed out and ready in no time. According to commentary from various places, I seem thrive at fight scenes, exploring the psychology of characters, and putting details in the right places (namely with lemons). Canon or original, you get the best of both worlds from me.

Weak Points: I won't lie, ever since I started writing at age 12, a long battle with saidisms and "Show, Don't Tell" has followed. My writing style can fluctuate from too vague to overly-wordy in the same work. Another shortcoming that I didn't even know I had was perspective or POVs; this is only being recently addressed. I also have a tendency to multi-task too much, resulting in inconsistent update speeds across multiple works. In general, beta readers and editors tend to put me at an "intermediate" level even though I want to be at advanced - that is, my ability and content are certainly above the masses, but the mistakes seen even in my more serious works leave something to be desired. I blame not reading a lot for this.




Allow me to go ahead and clear the waters: I am an OC writer. Always will, always have been. Don't get me wrong, I love the canon characters and their adventures, and I even have several stories planned that feature nothing but good old canon, but for the time being, OC writing is where my heart is. This really should not alter your perception of my as a writer; being an OC writer is not an inherently bad thing, but I can understand where the reservations come from. Trust me, I'm not one of those people. It all boils down to execution, and I try my complete hardest to ensure my execution is reasonable and great.

Now that that's out of the way, let's talk about something... Why do I write? The answer is simple: because I want to. When I started years ago, I didn't expect to become some big shot, not at all. I had simply had many plots, conflicts, and adventures in my mind that I wanted to bring to life. When I play video games, watch anime, and read books, there are some things I notice, some things I want to explore or expound upon. The only problem is that I have so little time each day where I can write. Still, I'll do what I can, as this is what I do. I don't do it for praise or personal glory, and certainly not for wealth (I don't plan on going pro). I do so because I enjoy writing. And I put my stuff on public websites like this so I can receive feedback on how to improve my writing and can become even better.

I'm proud of what I've done and my progress. I'm here to stay whether everybody's fine with that or not. It isn't arrogance or stubbornness, it's pride. I stand by my work, my characters, my stories, and my choice to write completely, and have never regretted it.
