RK Fic: Rurouni Battousai – Chapter 5 Pt. 1

There’s been a lot of recent reminders to me both here (thank you, aya1412!) and on Fanfiction.net that people are still very interested in reading Rurouni Battōsai; so (despite the fact that I haven’t yet finished writing Chp. 5) here is Chp. 5 Pt. 1 for your reading pleasure.

RK Fic: RS #1 A Strange Partnership – Chp. 4

Early Christmas present! (Oh, and the first three chapters will be edited over the next week.)

Here’s Chp. 4 of RuroSen: A Strange Partnership, in which we have arguing, a lot more brooding, and an unexpected visitor….

Fic Update

Yes, I actually have a fic update for you! *pauses as everyone falls down anime-style* *shakes head*

Chapter 4 of RuroSen #1: A Strange Partnership (the Rurouni Kenshin/Sentinel crossover) will be posted after I hear back from my beta-readers and make any recommended changes (definitely within the next week and a half).

Chapter 4 Part 4 of Rurouni Battôsai/Edge of the Blade will definitely be posted before I leave for my rapid Christmas vacation on Dec. 22. (At present I don’t know how long before – it will depend on a couple of things, including whether I can get any more of Chp. 5 written. Hiko’s being an even worse pain in the arse than usual *sigh*.)

Later, all!

RK Fic: Merula’s Vignette (1 of 2)

Here is the first of merula31‘s vignettes from the Fandom Meme. Unlike the other vignettes, this is actually part of a story I already have in progress, called Human Touch. I would be interested in opinions….

Please note that despite how it may appear, this is not slash/shōnen-ai; it is, at most, pre-shōnen-ai. And there are reasons behind the apparently OOC behaviour, some of which are in this bit….

[edit] Gah! Bad tag0!

As with all tag0’s RK stories, this was beta-ed by the inestimable Vathara.[/edit]

RK Fic: RS #1 A Strange Partnership – Chp. 1

Okay, finally fairly pleased with what I have written so far of RuroSen…. Sorry it’s taken so long! It’s been a busy week…. (Hope all my fellow Canadians are enjoying their Thanksgiving….)

Please note that this is a Rurouni Kenshin/The Sentinel crossover (Vathara’s Crossover Commando somehow found his way into my Plot Bunny Corral, and Saitō and Kenshin actually let him in). It is the first story in a series that will have at least one sequel, and a short prologue that I’m also working on….

Given that I’m over halfway through writing Chp. 4, I figured it was time to start posting Chp. 3…. (Note re RuroSen – I will try to review it next week to check that Chp. 1 is ready to post – it should be, but I just want to make sure.)

Rambles and RuroSen/Sentinel Query…

Well, it was my aunt’s birthday yesterday. Went home from work, got some writing done, then went over to her apartment to give her the gift from myself and two of my sibs. Had a nice chat with her and got to relax for a bit before returning home to sleep.

Going to an Irish Tenors concert with her and one of my adopted aunts tonight – I’m rather looking forward to it. Hoping that I won’t have to leave for work until after the concert is over and done with… Will probably write an entry on the concert either tonight or tomorrow.

Now, I know someone wanted me to get cracking on posting RuroSen, which I certainly don’t mind doing – but I need to have an issue resolved first. Any Sentinel fans, I welcome responses to the following:

Opening Statement: All right, we know that (in fanon definitely, and there’s more than a hint of it even in canon) Guides serve as anchors for their Sentinels’ senses – a baseline, as it were. Or at least, that’s the variation of fanon that I’m using.
Problem: In what way can a Sentinel anchor a Guide? Please note that I do not want to use the “Guide as empath with no barriers” variation – I’m trying to do something else. What Guide traits (and/or traits that Blair and Kenshin have in common, for those fans of both) would require a Sentinel’s help to control?
Notes: Any and all help is appreciated, and credit will be given for any suggestions/help I use.

Thanks!

RuroKen Haiku

Was in the middle of working on Chp. 3 of RuroBatt/Edge of the Blade (which is almost finished) early this morning at work when I suddenly ended up with a haiku in my head.

It focuses on the moment Saitô and Battôsai face off against each other in the Kamiya dojo, and applies equally well to canon or to RuroBatt.

Let me know what you think!

“Wolf-golden eyes meet
dragon amber; all is still–
swords clash in battle.”

RuroBatt:Chp2(.4) Author’s Notes

Short Staff = Longer Hours

Well, I’m staying about 2-1/2 hrs. late at work again, due to the fact that our front steps are still under repair, so one person (me, in this case) has to remain at the main security station (just inside the front entrance), and one person has to be at the door that’s acting as the front entrance.

Again, it’ll help with my paycheck. And maybe I’ll actually manage to get 8 hours of sleep this afternoon!

Oh, and just in case people didn’t notice (because I added another post shortly after it), I’m reiterating my question regarding the posting of Chp. 2, Pt. 4 of RuroBatt(/Edge of the Blade): Would you like me to post it now, or would you prefer to wait until I finish writing Chp. 3? (Just as an extra note, I’m on the second half (Pt. 3, to be exact) of Chp. 3…)

Later!

Pics… Lots O’Pics…

Well, I finally went and indulged myself – bought a digital camera. Of course, my first ten or so pictures have been of the cats… will probably add the best of them to my icons, and possibly post here…

Not much else to say, other than that. Hoping we’ll get a new supervisor hired ASAP now that the principal’s been back for a week…

Getting some writing done… Just waiting for my Mom to finish going over what I’ve got of RuroSen before re-posting the first chapter (don’t worry, Mom, no huge hurry – whenever you can get to it), as I’ve posed her the latest nagging question… Also, in terms of RuroBatt/Edge of the Blade, I’ve finally finished writing Chp. 3 Pt. 1, and have begun (sort of) Chp. 3 Pt. 3 (Pt. 2 was done before Pt. 1, since one of them focuses on Kenshin, and the other on Saitô…). Once I figure out how to detail the problems Misao’s causing, I’ll be well on my way…

So, question. Do you want me to post RuroBatt/Edge of the Blade Chp. 2 Pt. 4 right now, or wait until I’ve finished Chp. 3? Up to you guys – it’s basically ready…

Later!

RuroKen Fans (& Fans of Vathara’s Writing) Note…

Guess what? Vathara’s done it again…

No, I’m afraid it’s not the next Urban Legends… but trust me, you won’t be sorry reading it!

I would like to introduce a new massive crossover by Vathara:

Ethan Rayne’s Very Bad Day: Ethan’s Halloween costume chaos… backfires. Multiple crossover Rurouni Kenshin, Inuyasha, and Pet Shop of Horrors among others. Many others. Be afraid….

AKA Kenshin meets Buffy meets Inuyasha meets Gundam Wing meets Jedi meets comics… *Very Evil Snicker*

This one is highly recommended; it has the adventure and drama of Vathara’s best stories, mixed in with the humour she adds so subtly and so well…

(Can you tell I love this particular story? *G*)

Later, all!

RuroBatt Title & On FFNet…

Well, I managed to come up with a title for RuroBatt: Edge of the Blade. As a result, I’ve started posting to FFNet. The prologue is the only thing up at the moment, and I’ll be posting slower there than here…

Anyway, just a quick announcement.

Quick Fic Update – RuroBatt!

Just a quick note to anyone who is reading Rurouni Battôsai to say that you can expect Chapter 2.3 (Disruption) to be up some time this week.

Oh, and I’m probably going to start (slowly) posting RuroBatt to my FFNet account

Query: Horses…

Question for anyone who may know the answer…

What is the average landspeed of an average horse:

  • At a walk?
  • At a trot?
  • At a gallop?

Many thanks to anyone who can answer…

(Oh, and as promised, RuroBatt Chp. 2.2 will definitely be put up tomorrow.)

Apologies Re: RuroBatt

Sorry I haven’t posted Chp. 2.2 of RuroBatt yet, but the boys have been determined to get more RuroSen done, and RuroBatt hasn’t been touched since last week…

I’m going to try to get more done on it this week, but whether I manage to or not will depend greatly on Saitô and Battôsai’s moods – and like I said, at the moment, they seem more interested in RuroSen

No matter what happens, however, I will post Chp 2.2 by Friday afternoon (EDT).

Later!

RuroBatt Update the Second…

Chapter 2 of Rurouni Battôsai has now been completed in rough draft! (Well, actually it was completed a bit over 4 hours ago, but I’ve been a bit preoccupied…)

Now, for Chapter 3…

(BTW, if anyone has any other suggestions for an alternate title, I’m still taking them!)

(Heading off to Kyoto via the Tôkaidô…)

RuroBatt & Life Update…

…Mainly RuroBatt, since that’s been what my life has been for most of the past week (aside from work, but that’s not as important… *g*).

The good news – I’ve finished Pt. 3 of Chapter 2. Soon as I finish this entry, I’m going to be going over all of what I have written of Chp. 2 so far for editing, then going on (most likely after my first patrol) to work on getting Pt. 4 (Departure) written. Things are looking good for beginning to post it at the end of this week, as promised…

In life… *sigh*

My birthday’s in a week. I still have no real idea what I want. Requesting dark curtains for my bedroom (seeing as how I have to sleep during the day, and the light makes it hard); gift cards from Chapters/Indigo (Canadian equivalent to Borders Books, for those south of the 49th parallel); made a specific request from my sister since she was living in Halifax and thus had access to a store that stocked said specific items; sent a location semi-specific request to my parents (seeing as how my sister is down there, and can bring back stuff when she stops over for a few days on Monday – she’s going to be here for my B-Day! For the first time since her first year of Uni!)… Other than that… I really don’t know. *sigh* I’ve always found wish lists hard, and they just seem to get harder and harder each year…

Anyway, that’s my rant over. I’m off to work on RuroBatt and keeping an eye on the cameras…

Later!
