*apologises to DW for the backlog spam*Dear History,
I'd feel bad about abusing you, except that you are just way too cool. Dude, Hanbei was pimpin' over his family by 15, a super cool general by 28 and living in hermitude because he was too awesome for Politics and Bloodshed. Then he got courted and given a best friendship and a multitude of supremely cool commands, all while trying not to die from internal illnesses. You can't give me this kind of guy and expect me to leave him alone. Love,
Your Takenaka Hanbei/Japanese History Indoctrination Starts Here:Meiba
371 words. Hanbei and Hideyoshi.

If I bought a famous horse, there may come a battle when I let slip military strategies - in defence of the horse. This [sickly] one will do.
So, a couple of things have taken over my life recently, and all of them seem to somehow involve me completely ghosting over my DW. It's magic! :D "Must go grab a matcha latte - whoops, no time to cross-post to DW!" "How about I watch Crows Zero a third time instead of opening a new browser window, yeah!"
\o SO I SHALL SUMMARISE THUSLY THE EVENTS OF THE PAST FORTNIGHT:
- My job, I have quit it! Celebration and glee!
- My visa, I has it! University, here I come!
- Crows Zero, the movie! I love it!
- Gundam Wing, I am rewatching it! Treize and Zechs, how much do I love you? LET ME COUNT THE WAYS.
And because I am now free from the blighted octopi-hands of work, I can crosspost my posts in bits and pieces too!
I hereby request humbly that any Gundam Wing fans stab the comments with AU scenarios.
I need about 10 - that's a happy number! - for an Insane 13-6 MarathonTM. 8D Suggestions: teacher!AU; pirates; diplomats; mud-wrestlers! \o THIS FANDOM REQUIRES OLD-SCHOOL CHEESINESS.
\o/! Off to go do some productive things now!
Drabble Battle #2! Unfortunately, the Discworld prompt somehow managed to fling itself off the Elephants and go thundering elsewhere, so for the moment the battle rages between Space and Space. 8D voksen
is to blame for the Gundam Wing, and everyone else is to blame for Trek.
Again, word count is not an indication of bias (FOR SERIOUS THIS TIME), and nothing is really read through or fully thought out. Experimenting with a few new styles, too! ( Gundam Wing: Treize lives! But Zechs takes huge political falls. (And I somehow manage to write only the introduction, where Treize doesn't appear at all, huzzah!) 1031 words. )( Trek: Flying-o-phobic McCoy, meet Starfleet! 437 words. )
ALSO WIK!!!: it is imperative (see the number of exclamation marks I used there?) that you give me your addresses for the Great Mailer
if you wish to receive mail! SHYNESS IS NOT AN OPTION. I love sending mail, so indulge my sad little life and go paste yourself there. 8D

In spite of failing drastically at porn, ended up doing one Tseng/Rufus
Now to resist the temptation to write these two:
Crossover: Baccano!/Final Fantasy VII - Rufus/Luck - I always get what I want
Crossover: Baccano!/Final Fantasy VII - Tseng/Luck - He'd come to Turks of his own free will. But he did give them a chase first.
But. But. But. But.
