Embrace the Trickster

One of my favorite imaginary pantheon headcanons is that the deity of Love moonlights as the Trickster. Or possibly the Trickster moonlights as Love. Or maybe they're the same being, or maybe they're twins and switch places sometimes for kicks and giggles (because Love likes playing pranks sometimes, and Trickster maybe has a secret soft spot for humanity (see also: stealing fire, etc)), or maybe they're lovers and their fusion form and/or child is Romantic Comedy (who possibly sometimes changes to Romantic Tragedy when they're feeling down).

Point being, I feel like Love and the Trickster have a lot of potential chemistry together. The kind that makes really cool reactions and sometimes explosions. And just way too much in common in general. And no one can convince me otherwise.

Coming soon

A post about how this most recent AI was my most stressful since 2007, the year I joined staff (because the entire previous Registration team had quit and Registration is kinda vital to having a convention).

It will probably be a few more days, though. I've had exactly two days off since the con, and have slept through most of both of them.

On the plus side, I've got a second minion now, and very good important plans for making next year that much less stressful.

Socchan is writing a fic

No, it isn't any of the ones mentioned in the most recent Plunny Hutch glance (though I've got a few scraps jotted down for one of those). I'm having a lot of fun with it, though, and also really noticing some of my writing habits. Like:

* Someone is talking. There is a 50% chance I skip dialogue tags altogether, and a 30% chance that I use a tag other than a form of "said". (These numbers are just rough estimates.)
* I document just about every single movement or action a person can take, including expressions. I'm interpreting this to mean that I'm a very visual writer (which doesn't really surprise me, since I have a pretty significant focus on visual media and arts). I think I like this, though it probably also makes my writing seem very "busy".
* A lot of sentences I write are sentences-and-a-half. Like, first a sentence does a thing, and then another thing that's kinda related. For most of my sentences, not even just a few. I'm trying to reproduce the effect here, can you tell? This is a structure I write a whole lot. ...I'm not sure what, if anything, I could do to change it, or even if I want to change it, so for now I'm just accepting it as a personal style thing. More thinking can come on this after I finish this fic. ...And maybe a few more on top of it :P

Between those characteristics, I'm rather tempted to characterize my writing style as dynamic. Which I think I kinda like? IDK how accurate other people would find that description, though. I definitely feel like it's fast-paced, which might be something I need to consider in the future if I want to refine my technique. There's probably some sort of pros-cons list of different writing styles out there, traps to avoid, etc etc. Not something I'm terribly concerned about at the moment, especially since I'm basically writing pure fluff right now. I might look someday, though.

A wild fandom appeared!

(I know I already did a New Fandom Announcement post, but I really feel like this structure works particularly well for this fandom, so I'm posting this anyway.)

-----

A wild Fandom appeared!

MIRACULOUS LADYBUG used IDENTITY SHENANIGANS; SOCCHAN became confused!

SOCCHAN is confused; it hurt itself in its confusion!

MIRACULOUS LADYBUG used MOBIUS PINING. It's super effective!

SOCCHAN fainted.

SOCCHAN is out of usable Brains. SOCCHAN whited out.

...

If you think my brain isn't also tormenting me with Pokemon AU details, you would be thinking wrong.

(The kwamis are Totem Pokemon and the Miraculouses are Z-stones that are locked to them and have super unique Z-moves. If used together, Destructium-Z and Creatium-Z would summon Arceus or something??? Plagg is an Absol (ask me why!), Tikki is a Ledian, Nooroo is a Venomoth, and I need to stop now send help please.)
