Thanks for writing for me! I hope you got something you wanted to do!

About Me
I'm Mousi and I've been around since HP fandom in like 2003 (god I'm so old). I've been mainly in Johnny's Entertainment fandom for a long while now, but I love shounen and sports anime, so once in a while something sticks.

My AO3 is [archiveofourown.org profile] mousapelli but the easiest place to search through my insane amount of fic is on Kira-Kira.net, my website. The newer stuff will be on Ao3, though, because I'm not the best at updating, and for anime fandoms it's a more worthwhile place to post.

I made a new icon

that's literally all this post is for. Well, ok, while i'm here:

Seasonal Flavor, F/F Kimberly/Tommy in the 2017 Power Ranger movie verse, borderline NSFW. Because i want genderflipped Tommy Oliver more than ANYTHING, and the cast is actually rooting for it to make the numbers even. There's no chance I'm getting that, right? LET ME DREAM.

Still looking for some more JE writers over on [community profile] ho_summer! We have 9 which is enough to probably run, but more in a couple of the bands would be better. Sign-ups right here! until the 14th.

We did SASO truth or dare over the weekend and the funniest thing I did was write this rap:

HI HELLO HUMAN FRIENDS

I mean, friends.

SASO sign-ups were tonight WHOOP WHOOP. Me, [personal profile] marks, [personal profile] prillalar, [personal profile] beltenebra, and [personal profile] doxian all got ourselves signed up as Team YuraBeka. I was super nervous something would go wrong and jacked up my form signup TWICE but thank goodness we are all in and look good.

If you also like the sports anime, you should do the SASO (Sports Anime Summer Olympics). The people are great, the bonus rounds are so much fun, it goes on ages, and last summer it single-handedly brought back both my faith in fandom and some old friends. SASO is great!. Looking at the schedule seems overwhelming if you've never seen it before, so if you have any questions, feel free to ask! There's also an intro post so you can see if you know anybody who's doing it already.

Speaking of things, so Mirai and I started [community profile] ho_summer, a JE FQF for the summer, and sign-ups are open to authors of any JE group, debuted or junior, so long as you are a-okay with the porn. Sign-up post is here! Aside from the exchange itself, which I'm nervous about having enough people to run, my plan is to run a couple little bonus rounds or posts to encourage some hanging out, esp now that a bunch of people migrated to DW all at once.

If you could try and pass that around, I'd be grateful! I'm not getting much traction out of my twitter in terms of RTs and I'm not tumblr anymore and I'm still working on which comms are active/will let me advertise. Comms or other places you can suggest would be welcome!

I am off to make some Team YuraBeka icons and then start a recs post on [community profile] ho_summer, but if new people are showing up, hi!

Couture took a puck to the face

Everyone seems to be having an LJ crisis around me and I'm just...not. Russia owned the thing for years already? Clearly people can do what they want with their own journals, but if you already abandoned the thing years ago, I don't see the point in coming back to delete it. They already had your data. You're just creating a bunch of dead links.

For me personally it feels unpleasant to have a string of those on my flist. It's like having a friend you haven't talked to for years come back just to say "I'm REALLY not talking to you, BYE FOREVER." I realize there's probably no difference either way, so my feelings are basically irrational. If you're doing the thing, I'm not trying to guilt you or whatever, I just. idk. feel unpleasant.

And I resent the added chore of figuring out if/how to back up shiritori or maybe even JE100, because I already have 900 things to do and fucking around with DW vs LJ is not one of them.

My current grad class is ruining my LIFE. I've never done this much homework for anything ever. It's taking me hours every week, like it's all I do the whole weekend, so I've managed to start zero percent of my final paper, read zero percent of the research for it. I accidentally turned in my presentation write up a week late because fuck my life. at least the marking period is over and also my annual observation, but next is Latin Festival which is a big font of fuck everything, landing right after my annual hatred of birthday week (or as it is called around here, Thanksgiving week, part 2).

Also I think I might be addicted to Sheetz's cold brew coffee. I've been there so often in the last two weeks that tonight i went to the other Sheetz because I was embarrassed. I think the people at my regular one know me.

SASO nominations are open. And hey the Sharks are in the playoffs. Ideally they'll perform better there than they have been the last couple weeks of the regular season, yikes.

bunny fail

the only thing All Out here is me usually

so after being at the panera for 3 hrs, i realized i had left both my wallet and keys in the bathroom in the first ten minutes i was there. WHY SO STUPID, SELF. Happy ending: the counter lady had them. Everything was fine. I nearly cried, and she gave me a cookie because she felt so bad for me. For real, self, you are too old to do shit like this.

uh hi i haven't posted here since chocolate box letters pfft.

Still writing a ton of Yoi, including an inexplicably 12k of Leo/Guanghong for White Day. but mostly yurabeka.

Currently watching ACCA (not short for anything) which is about spies and best friends and bread and smoking and best friends who are spies. and photography. and toast. and coup d'etat. I wish I could nominate this for SASO.

SASO IS SOON. well sort of. I'm insanely excited for it because of how much fun I had last year and how I have new fandoms this year to read/write in. I think we mostly have our team together even! I'm psyched. And I'm trying to watch enough All Out to make it stick but I'm having some trouble uh falling asleep immediately so I have to keep rewatching episodes.

I got an incredibly drastic haircut that i'm probably not keeping, but it's all short on the sides and long enough to spike on the top and longish down the back. En says in Japan they call it a 'wolf cut' although neither of us knows why.

also I feel asleep and didn't post this last night! all the failure.

About Me
I'm Mousi and I've been around since HP fandom in like 2003 (god I'm so old). I've been mainly in Johnny's Entertainment fandom for a long while now, but I love shounen and sports anime, so once in a while something sticks.

My AO3 is [archiveofourown.org profile] mousapelli but the easiest place to search through my insane amount of fic is on Kira-Kira.net, my website. The newer stuff will be on Ao3, though, because I'm not the best at updating.


In General
I'm really easy, honestly. If you write something that you enjoy, the odds are that I'll like it too. If you need more guidance, I tend to write the kind of thing that I enjoy reading so you can read through some of the stuff on my archive. In general I lean towards slice-of-life, banter, group fic, that kind of thing.

Likes
Friends/teammates hanging around, group setting, banter and teasing, boys just hanging around and doing stupid stuff together, hijinks. I love group setting, so friends at school, or rinkmates, teammates or university friends, that kind of thing. I like all kinds of relationship fic like confessing or getting together or established or moving to next level, casual hook up turns into something else, pretty much anything is fine. Gen is okay too? If it's got a good hook to it, like about character development or people growing together, or something like that.

I actually really like horror or scary stories? Like ghost or supernatural type, not gory. But unless you have a GENIUS idea I'm not sure I'd want to see one with any of the fandoms/pairings I signed up for.

Dislikes
I don't hate AUs but I prefer fic that's close to canon (aging up is all right, though). I'm not intensely kinky and I don't read a lot of stuff with toys, serious domination, fetish things, etc. I can take tense or sad fic so long as it's going to come out all right in the end, so unfixable things like character death or major injury aren't any good (although see above how good horror/scary fic as an exception). I'm not into ABO at all.

Rating
You do you. I love porn, sure, but if you end up with slow burn friends to lovers and all I get is some kissing, I can live with that for the sake of good build-up and/or plot.

Honestly I feel like I already said what I had to say about these fandoms on the form, but here are some more thoughts if you want them:

Yuri on Ice
I'm super into the Yuri/Otabek at the moment (i don't have a weirdness about their ages, but if you need to age them up for you, that's fine). There's just a lot of ground to cover there with living and different countries and training and Yuri's growth spurt about to happen. I love language/cultural differences in general in this show. I love how Victor/Yuuri are something in between friends and mentors to Yuri and I think it'd be interesting to explore how that relationship changes as Yuri gets older and the age gap narrows. For Victor/Yuuri, both fic set in the spaces of the series and fic about the next year in St. Petersburg are both good. Trying to figure out how they're going to live together, where they're going to live, just working out logistics. You could really write some amazingly hot, established relationship sex for these two.

I threw the Yuri/Yuuri/Victor in because I feel like it's interesting but I don't see myself writing it (that's unusual). You would definitely have to age up Yuri on this one, please. You might even need to AU their ages some because that gap is crazy big.

Check Please
The short thing says it all here. Haus bros! Bits baking. Chowder loving the Sharks. Bits and Jack trying to be quiet and sneaky (they aren't sneaky). How did Rans and Holster become best friends anyway? The team chirping one or both of them for the loud sex and being like "what time did that chick leave, damn" and Holster mumbling into his cereal that she left really freaking early while Rans suddenly remembers he has to do any other thing somewhere...else. People wearing each other's jerseys (so hot). Nerd glasses.

Free
When I watched this, I thought a lot about how Haru and Rin both needed their teams really badly, and how they would have probably been better off as people if Rin hadn't gone away for so long, even if it made them better swimmers (they can make up for it now, though). Also that Rin ended up super happy at Samezuka and any kind of dorm shenanigans or team bonding would make me really happy. For Nagisa/Rei I think you could write really adorable getting together fic where either Rei is a basketcase trying to confess (meanwhile nagisa already knows) or else he's completely oblivious while Nagisa is using all his wiles to get them together. What do they even do their senior year with the others having graduated? Rin and Haru trying to figure out each other at the same time as they deal with university and a professional career and olympics, or else how they've already figured out how to work together even while Haru struggles to cope with change while Rin is always running towards it. Being best friends. Being angry with each other and having other best friends to turn to.

Raven Cycle
Magic! Oh man I am in for the magic. Especially with the Ronan/Adam there's so much cool stuff to talk about with dream magic and Cabeswater and I'm sure Ronan re-dreams that thing basically right away just for the sake of meeting Adam there. I'd take either during the series fic here, or else if you want to explore how they handle going to college or whatever Adam and Ronan are going to do, or how they spend there last summer in between, it's all good. But magic, though.

Macdonald Hall
You could do anything with Bruno and Boots and it would be great. School fic, university fic, summer break fic. I can never decide whether it's more satisfying if they figure out they're in love while still roommates or if it's separation that brings that on. Bruno has to be ENTIRELY DRAMATIC about it. Boots has quietly known about it forever but was waiting for Bruno to figure it out. Dorm 3 trying desperately to hook them up when secretly they're already together, or else trying to keep them apart (because shared walls) when the two of them don't have a clue.

I'm not sure if this matters, but I really wanted to request Haikyuu but then couldn't because the pairings were too weird (I did offer to write it, though). So if that is your jam, I am totally into Suga/Asahi, Kuroo/Tsukki, Ukai/Takeda, and also think Bokuto is amazing.

Thank you again for writing for me! I hope you have a good time!

good job making it to the new year

can somebody either confirm or deny that if i duplicated my lj when i started using dw that it's basically backed up already? I used to use that ljarchive thing more regularly but i recall it always being terrible.

I don't really care about the thing in general, because hardly any of my friends are still over there and I'm mostly checking my flist for JE comms and shiritori, but i've been LJ permanent for so long that i'm not going anywhere until the whole site goes dark. and at that point my concern will honestly be what we do with shiritori.

I guess move it to dw? That's where SASO was. idk. i feel like i'm too old to get worked up about internet stuff properly, and also I doubt intensely anybody in Russia cares about the silly fic we all post. If i can migrate the thing i guess I will, assuming I even have enough mod powers to do that, and if not then I guess we'll start over in an emergency.

anyway, my holiday was low-key and peaceful, I don't travel since my parents are local, and I can't believe it's my last day of break already. I mostly spent it writing ridiculous Yuri/Otabek when I should have been working on United, and rewatching YoI accidentally several times over. I enjoyed Rogue One a lot, and also took my mom to see Sing, which was cute. 3bro took me down to DC for a day to have ramen and sushi at two places he likes. We tried the Russian Roulette sushi plate and I got the wasabi piece on the very first try, pfft.

I spent New Years with the chinchilla, watching the Twilight Zone marathon, which is, I assume, how I'm likely to spend all of them. 2016 wasn't the worst year of my life, but I don't see any reason 2017 will be much different. I appreciate the stability, at least. I'm in the middle third of my teaching career, so I don't anticipate much upheaval there, and almost halfway to my PhD. It's hard to explain this in a way that doesn't make it sound like I need some sort of intervention. I wish I were happier, but I don't wish it at the expense of sometimes being much sadder, again. So I guess this is the way things are.

I will say that SASO was a large bright spot this year because it's the first thing that's made me feel connected to fandom again in a long time, and I really needed that in contrast to how stupidly lonely i feel in RL like 90% of the time. I started using Ao3 more for the same reason, although that's less connection and more like strangers giving you a high five, but it's something. I don't feel any shame about how much validating I get/want/need from that. YoI fandom, specifically, has left more comments on two fics in the last week than I think I've had in a year anywhere else, so there is that.

Poison is Queen

I've been watching I, Claudius which somehow I've never seen and it's really good, but suddenly Capt Picard was Sejanus and I couldn't concentrate on anything but that for like two episodes pfft. But it is true that it seems basically to come almost entirely from Suetonius and so it's a bit overinterested in all the scandalous rumors. then again, I wasn't there, and for all I know it was exactly this bad or even worse. Sometimes I don't know whether to be distressed that leaders are perpetually terrible people and for some reason everybody just puts up with it, or to find it hopeful that somehow the Empire carries on despite a string of increasingly incompetent crazy people.

my knee is killing me which means snow in a couple days. We had a little bit this morning, but not enough to get me out of anything. I'm so ready for winter, so ready. Snowwww.

I finally did some christmas shopping this week, but honestly I really just have my parents, 3bro, and my nephew, aside from baking stuff for people at school usually. Mom came over and baked cookies with me this weekend, and aside from the brownie cookies and the usual m&ms, we made orange cranberry drop cookies which turned out amazing, and I did about a dozen of them with cherries instead. THEYRE AMAZING. I kind of want to try almond cherry next time instead of coconut cherry. I might try these apricot tricorner things next weekend because i had an almost/apricot strudel at the christmas market that was stupidly delicious.

Yuri on Ice (which we've started calling Yurio Nice on twitter) is amazing and episode 10 ruined me with its goodness. I'm going to be so sad when it's over but i can't wait to see what happens in the last two, if the dance battle wasn't saved for the end. I'm not at all over the genius of the dance battle montage, and some genius set it to Shut Up and Dance and it's so perfectly I nearly cried over it. It's beautiful.
