Note: this journal is only PARTIALLY friends only. Fanfiction, original works, and my dream posts aren't friends locked. Personal entries are.

I'm good about adding people back and I always like making new LJ friends :) But I have some rules:

1) Leave a comment in this post (or PM) if you want me to friend you. If you just add me and don't say anything I'm not going to add you back!
2) We need to have something in common. If you want me to add you for old fandoms that I'm no longer into then I won't add you because those fandoms are no longer relevant to me.
3) I'm flexible with this one, but if we have things in common and communicate then I'll add you back.

And since I get questions like these every so often, my Gazette posts are not friends locked. They're private entries because I find those fics to be old and VERY embarrassing.

Well... obviously my "I'm back!" entry from November turned out to be inaccurate. My writing drive had returned, though it soon waned again aside from answering RP and writing partial scenes in my notebook. As of this week I seem to finally be able to get working on projects again. Part B of Chapter 8 is almost done - finally. I'm almost afraid to look at when I posted Part A. It's been such a long time.

Title: One Year Anniversary
Author: write_my_dreams
Pairing: Kuina x Subaru, Hiyuu (and Yuuki) x Subaru, Hiyuu x Yuuki x Rito
Genre: AU, supernatural
Warning: Language, mentions of sex
Disclaimer: The band members portrayed do not belong to me. The writing and the story are mine.
Rating: PG (I'd never finish it otherwise)
Chapter(s): 1/1
Summary: Subaru and Kuina go to their second Halloween party at Hiyu's club to enjoy a night of fun, memories, and some great sex.
Author's Comment: Well, this was supposed to be finished for last Halloween and then for this Halloween. Obviously that didn't work out so have a belated Halloween fic. This series has been going on for 3 years, which is a little crazy since it was just supposed to be a one-shot. This isn't the last installment in this universe  and I'll be working on more later.

This little hiatus was something I dearly needed. Over the summer, I finally swallowed my delusions and admitted to myself that it wouldn't be financially possible for me to attempt to enter the JET Program for the 2017-2018 year. When I left English Club/Japan in 2015, it was my hope that I could return in a year or two. It was pretty crushing for me to accept that I couldn't go back to this country I love so much. So I found myself pulling away from the visual kei fandom in general. We all have coping methods and I guess that one was mine? I've since realized that was stupid, that I'll always love visual kei, and that even if I can't go back to Japan just yet I can still partake in the culture and the language until I can someday return. At least I have plenty of music to catch up on now. I'm so glad Ryoga and Lycaon have come back.

So my fanfic writing drive has returned. I tried to do NaNoWriMo this year and work on To Love a Vampire and bits of Paranormal Case Files. The weather in Michigan kept yo-yoing between summery weather and wintery weather so I kept coming down with a cold, or I had headaches... Health issues and work made it difficult for me to work on NaNoWriMo and pretty soon I fell way behind. So I gave up and decided I need to just focus on finishing things instead of trying to start up on other ideas later in my series.

I have a fic in my demons universe that I'll post either today or tomorrow. Then I'm going to work on finishing Second Chances so I can get poor MiA out of Jin's claws.

As usual my hands are screwed up so I'll work on writing whenever I can and daydreaming about my series when they don't want to cooperate with me. It's gotten to the point where I'm now meeting with a surgeon -- sadly, not until January 23. I keep hoping someone will cancel so I can get in to see him sooner. And because my job was screwing up my hands so badly I had to repeat last year and quit. I need my hands to last me a lifetime so I'll be working on strenghtening them and figuring out what the hell I want to do with my life. Sometimes I wish I could just go back to being a student again.

I can't believe it's October 28th already. This month has absolutely flown by... it's kind of surreal that it's already the end of the month. Usually I'd have a Halloween fic ready to be posted but not sure if I'll be able to do that this year. I'm still at the struggle point - I have ideas, daydreams, and I can get things started but finishing is the issue. I will try to get a Halloween fic out. Won't have time tonight and I probably won't tomorrow, but I have Sunday and Monday off of work so I should be able to do a little writeathon and try to get something done.

On Friday, my seasonal cold + cough combo hit hard. I called in sick to work on Saturday and spent most of the day asleep, reading, or watching Star Trek: The Original Series. I did go to the pavillion at my university with my parents to check out the Llama Fest. There's one every year and I got to see llamas in the show ring, doing a little obstacle course, or in the stalls. They were sooo soft. Bought some socks and arm warmers. And took so many pictures of the cute llamas.

You can check my Instagram @ lost.in.roses for pictures. I'll do a separate post here with llama pictures sometime tomorrow.

Still feeling pretty horrible. My frequent loud coughing disturbed my dog and he moved to Mom's bed.

Other reason I posted was because... I had the weirdest dream. Like, the ultimate crack ship dream. In my last entry I mentioned I'd gotten into the Star Trek fandom. I've since had 3 dreams about Spock (is my brain subtly hinting that I should write a fic for another fandom?) but one.. damn.

So New!Trek Spock was exploring this forest and he came across incubus Yuuki in his demon form. He was running his tricorder over one of Yuuki's wings, and Yuuki looked amused. Spock said he was "Fascinating" and that's all I can remember from that dream.

Still not feeling much writing inspiration, but I've got Aryu poking at me. He's demanded a part in my reaper series so I might do some writing with him if I feel a little better this week.

I've been avoiding making this post because I've been waiting/hoping my inspiration would return, but given it's been about a month and I'm still not feeling it... it's time for me to take a little break from working on any of my Jrock fanfiction. I enjoy daydreaming scenes but I have no drive or incentive to write them down. I'd hoped to have Chapter 8 finished by now as poor MiA is stuck. If I force the chapter out, it won't be good though.

Going to work on my novel since I've got some of those muses poking at me. Maybe a chance of pace is just what I need to get back into my inspiration. I've also gotten deep into the Star Trek fandom after seeing Beyond in the theater last week. I plan on starting the original series next week, but in the meantime I have plenty of new reading material!

I made sure to get this finished today for irony points. As an American, I'm celebrating July 4th which is all about freedom. While poor MiA's is taken for him. Now to go back to cuddling my poor frightened puppy...

Title: Second Chances: Captive
Author: write_my_dreams
Pairings: past Hakuei x OFC, Hakuei x MiA, ? x MiA, ? x ?
Genre: AU, supernatural, vampires. 1980s setting.
Warning: Rape, mind control, slavery
Disclaimer: The band members portrayed do not belong to me but the writing/story and the original characters are mine.
Rating: PG-13

Chapters: 8.1/12
Summary: The desire for blood and sex brings Hakuei to Kabuki-cho one night. A chance encounter at a nightclub brings MiA into his life, giving him a second chance at love and happiness after the death of his beloved wife.
Author's Comment: When I started writing, I realized Chapter 8 was going to be longer than I'd originally planned. I thought it would be best to divide the chapter into three parts so it wouldn't be a mess of time shifts and get too long. Chapter 8 is the darkest chapter of this series so heed the warnings before you read. Part B will be worse. Part C will be much worse.

Author's Comment: I'd meant to have this out earlier but my allergies have absolutely decimated me. I know you're all dying to know who kidnapped MiA, but that revelation will have to wait until Chapter 8. This is Koichi's side of things.
