kangeiko: "i capture the castle" first line (literary indulgence)
So, if you've had the misfortune to be anywhere near me during the last five years, you may have been subjected to one or more of the following:
1) complaints that I am tired,
2) complaints that I can't breathe properly,
3) complaints that I can't hold my alcohol,
4) complaints that I am in a permanent bad mood,
5) complaints that I feel stupid.

I spent quite a bit of Xmas in hospital being prodded by an ENT specialist, who was able to tell me within ten minutes that this is entirely due to a chest infection I had five years ago that closed off several important pieces of my innards (including sinuses, airways, all optional stuff like that) and that I have lived the last five years with the oxygen intake of someone at the top of Kilimanjaro. THIS MAKES SO MUCH SENSE. It explains the giddiness, the tiredness, the mood swings, the breathlessness, the susceptibility to infection, every bloody thing. It even explains why my alcohol tolerance disappeared entirely for no apparent reason, and why my energy levels dropped dramatically and never picked up again. SO. Now that I have a diagnosis, I also have a treatment plan (FUCKING STRONG ANTIBIOTICS to combat stuff - I remember these fuckers, they pumped me full of the stuff when I had pneumonia - and three other things all designed to open an airway). I have to take all of this for a month (it's a pain, bc it takes half an hour to do everything, morning and night), and then, hopefully, I will have... air. AIR, YOU GUYS! The first kick of the drugs left me oxygen-drunk, I sat around giggling to myself and inhaling all the way down to my toes.

The bad news is, if they don't work (i.e. if things revert after a couple of months) I'm gonna need to have surgery to reconstruct an airway. BUT THAT'S OK BC THEY WILL WORK AND EVERYTHING WILL BE FINE.

You have no idea of the relief I felt at being told all this. I'd convinced myself it was all in my head, that it was psychosomatic and I just had to get on with it. I got more and more frustrated that I had no energy, that I couldn't sleep well, that I couldn't even inhale properly. AND NOW THERE IS A REASON! IDEK, my head exploded from relief.


Uh, other stuff. [livejournal.com profile] itinerant_vae told me I'd been recced, which was v flattering, especially as I wrote that fic on a whim and fully expected everyone in fandom to hate it. (Why, yes, I did write dark!fic for a sitcom, what's your point?)

Other writing I have done - 3 yuletide fics, which I found a struggle considering that my lungs were really packing up by that point. I'm glad that I perserved, though, even if they are a bit random.

Uh, I also found an old Angel/Spike fic I wrote eons ago and never posted, so that's up at AO3 now. [ Oubliette ] It occurs to me that once I finish importing all my fic to AO3, I will have c. 350 fics. This is weird. I don't feel like I've written much stuff, but I guess I must have. Well, I'm signed up to 3 separate fanfic 100 challenges (Londo, Arvin/Jack, and 100fandoms), so there's plenty of fic to come from those. Anyway, it just feels a bit weird.

Finally, I've written the first second third fourth draft of the Sherlock fic I owe for [livejournal.com profile] help_pakistan . I have the final beta notes now, and will be working on finishing that up before the New Year. It's not quite what I intended to write when I started out, but then again these things rarely are.

From [livejournal.com profile] sidewinder:

Comment with a sentence from one of my fanfiction stories. Without looking, I have to try and guess which fic of mine the sentence is from. If I fail, the challenger wins a drabble request.

I promise not to cheat. :)

The drabble request can be in any fandom for which I've already written stuff, or you can try your luck with something I haven't attempted before (I am still working on my [livejournal.com profile] 100fandoms, after all); for prompts, please give me a character/pairing plus a word/concept.

My fic can be found here (and the listing was recently updated, too).

Title: On the Day Before
Author: [livejournal.com profile] kangeiko

Request: Lilah/Cordelia, rope and a rose.
Summary: Darla wasn't the only one Wolfram & Hart had tucked away in its Dreamscaping Division. S2, set a little before Untouched.

A/N: I didn't get a chance to expand on this as much as I would have liked, because I managed to destroy my wrist about four days ago. Also, I stole my title from The West Wing. Shameless, I know. I hope that you enjoy it, regardless.

ETA: Why oh why did Semagic eat my headings to this? I may never know. Woe.

Let's try it again:

For [livejournal.com profile] selenak, because I promised to carry on working on this, and because it's finally coming together. :-)

Title: Ge bene Hinnom
Author: [livejournal.com profile] kangeiko
Fandoms: Angel / 1602
Summary: Man-like demons stalk the New World, and the Roanoke colony falters. In response, a trade is made between the Most Secret Council and Sir Carolus Javier, and a new settler is hastily dispatched.

I really need to stop writing Ilyria post-NFA fic. For one thing, there is food to be eaten in the house. Yes.

Untitled ficlet for [livejournal.com profile] erykah101, who wanted to know about the relationship between Data and Ilyria. I said I was still working on these, didn't I? I'll get them all done eventually...

This has been cluttering up my harddrive for some time, and I want to get it out there before it drives me nuts. It's the first part of the 1602/A:TS crossover I owe [livejournal.com profile] selenak. It's unbetaed as yet, so comments and corrections are welcome. The whole story is likely to come to about 15 parts, I think, and is set in a mish-mash of the 1602 and A:TS worlds - it is not our history (and American History scholars should pick this up from this part onwards), but is hopefully sufficiently close to what passes for it in the Angelverse.

Title: warpaint
Author: [livejournal.com profile] kangeiko
Disclaimer: I don't own them, but I'd treat them better.
Summary: Lilah despises women like this.
Spoilers/setting: Billy, S3.

A/N: I don't know where this came from. OK, that's a lie. This is the one episode in S3 that I wouldn't trade for anything. I'm not entirely sure about my timings in this, because I don't actually have the season on DVD and so I'm going on memory, but I'm assuming that at least one day passed between Billy engineering the assault on Lilah and her visit by Cordelia.

This is entirely Kita's fault. Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] queenspanky for betaing duties. Feedback & concrit welcomed.

I saw a man pursuing the horizon;
Round and round they sped.
I was disturbed at this;
I accosted the man.
"It is futile," I said,
"You can never -- "
"You lie," he cried,
And ran on.

I love this meme, and I was bored.

List all the characters in your icons in alphabetical order, and let them all into pairs.

Normally, I'd just comment on the pairing, but seeing as this time there weren't really that many pairings (unlike last time, which yielded some amazing results), I've decided to drabble them instead. I probably won't do all of them (I probably won't do most of them, to be honest) but if others want a go - they're all yours.

                 curiosity [B5] Timov copes with a too-curious Daggair. Written for [livejournal.com profile] selenak.

F is for ... food )

 [A:TS] Post NFA, Ilyria and Lorne are all that is left.

I is for ... inappropriate ) [Veronica Mars] Veronica snoops and sees more than she bargained for.

First off, apologies for not dealing with email and lj comments and what have you. I am massively behind, mainly because OMG exams, death death death (i.e. I have French finals in three days! death death death etc). Much love to [livejournal.com profile] selenak who sent me Jack/Sloane goodies that made my day (I'll send extra special love via email once, you know, lack of death).

To prepare for exams, I have: 1) rewatched Buffy season 4, 2) helped [livejournal.com profile] athena25 rearrange the living room, 3) finished 'Forty Signs of rain' by Kim Stanley Robinson, 4) written a Spike-centric ficlet for the first time in god knows how long, and 5) done some French revision. (You thought I hadn't, didn't you? You thought I'd provide you with a list, and then confess to not having done any, didn't you? Be honest...) Not nearly enough French revision, but still. I'm going to post this and then go do some more.

I'm like to take this opportunity to beat [livejournal.com profile] kita0610 soundly about the head for getting me to care that there was a Season 5 of Angel made (I'd been so damned angry about Connor-centric things in Season 3 that I'd given up). I'll have you know that I may soon be spending hard-earned cash on the S5 DVD. Damnit. In that spirit, I wrote Spike-fic, mid-S5. Yes, this the extent of my depravity. I wrote fic for a season for which I have only read episode guides. This is how much we should all beat [livejournal.com profile] kita0610 about the head (or possibly make her write it instead, that's a much better idea). Anyway. It's written for [livejournal.com profile] 15minuteficlets and is therefore unbeta-ed, written in 15mins or less, and probably sucks giant pixie ass. Bah, ce n'est pas un bon roman, mais c'est finis (or thereabouts, you can tell we have much french to go, damn it...).

Or something.

Read pointless fun here:
