So lately, I've come across a lot of things in fic that annoy me.  I'm not sure if it's just me or it's the world that's gone crazy.  It's gotten to the point though that I really just need to rant and let it all out.  Because exploding, while entertaining, is never as much fun when you're the one being exploded.  So I suppose here is a meme of pet peeves that I have in fanfic.

The Top Ten Things Mem Currently Finds Most Annoying In Fic: (In no particular order)


Rant, rant, rant... )


[/rant]
Yeeeeeeeeeeah, that was far longer than I expected it to be.  Didn't mean to go off on you guys like that.  But considering I've been trying, and semi-failing, on not lecturing people who are kind enough to say nice things about my fics, I figured if I just got it all out of my system now I might just be able to smile and say thank you.  ^_^;;;  The good news is that apparently protest fic is doing some good in the world.  As mentioned, I've had several Sodia-haters tell me they've turned a new leaf towards her, so hey!  Sucess!  I've also put it up for the Your Tales of contest just for kicks.  I doubt it'll make, if just because length even without going into merit, but it's kind of fun to look around at other people's entries.  <3

Also, is it sad that out of nine things, only one of those doesn't directly have to do with the first point?  I could have just put them under one bullet.  -_-;;;  To make up for my whining, have these two totally SFW made of WIN pictures to make your day.  Oh, and this one. (also SFW but with a cuss word or two if it offends someone's sensibilities. )
I seem to like using the depressing Asch icon for story ends, despite them not being nearly that depressing for the most part.  Hm.  Ah, well.  Poor Asch.  Anyway, it's short, but here's the epilogue.

Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again )
Yeah, yeah.  More Gundam Wing.  They're just fun little characters to torment, I guess.  Anyway, this is another chapter fic, and not one of my better ones to be honest...  But it's fun, which makes all the difference.  Also, it's angsty.  XD  Fair warning, it's not the best organized fic out there either.  It started out as a one shot that evolved into a multi-chapter fic of loosely related one-shots and then got a over reaching plot.  Also, around chapter two I get a really weird format of half Duo first person point of view with third person everyone else.  In short... I wasn't really thinking when mapping out a narrative and forgive accordingly?  I did mention it was fun regardless of it's faults, right?  <3

Also, I should mention something about pairings of this fic.  In Gundam Wing fandom back in the day (who knows, maybe still now) there was a huge divide.  You either liked slash pairings or non-slash pairings and there was no inbetween or happy medium.   Roughly everyone on one side of the fence was rather scornful of the others due to polarizing characters that you either loved or hated accordingly. 

This fic was written with the sole purpose of pissing everyone off.  I wanted flames and death threats and all that fun stuff.  In this, I failed miserably, since everyone seemed to like it too darn much.  I think I got one whiny little threat that barely even managed to sound vaguely threatening ( I believe it went something like "Heero needs to be happy or else..." ).  However, I did manage to get followers from both sides of the fence, all of which (slash and non-slash fans alike) adored this fic and wanted to see it through to the end.  I also set a good example on not bashing hated characters.  I may not like Relena, but my characterization of her in the later bits of the fic (when I finally got up the courage to attempt writing her) got compliments from both Relena fans (saying I treated her very well and characterized her perfectly) and Relena haters (saying that I made her standable and actually an enjoyable character).  So over all the fic was a decent success, despite my original goal failing completely.

As for the pairings, the basic plot is that Duo is in love with Heero, and Heero is straight and married to Relena. At no point during the course of this fic will that fact change. So, if you want a sappy love story that randomly kills Relena off and Heero goes running into Duo's arms, look elsewhere. Happy romance is not currently in my vocabulary. That does not mean happy ending is not part of my vocabulary, but Duo's love will remain unrequited for the entire fic.  Because really, that's a bit more realistic than everyone being non-slash or slashy, but that's just me.

Sorry the notes got a bit long, but they're over with now? 

For the One You Love
A Gundam Wing Fanfiction
By: Memory Dragon
Characters: Duo Maxwell, Heero Yuy/Relena Peacecraft, Quatre Winner
Disclaimer: Gundam Wing belongs to Sunrise and Bandai. I don't own it and make no claim to.
Summary: For the one he loves, he's willing to give up everything. Even if it means giving up his own happiness...

The Things You Do... )
Title: The Symbolism of Rain
Author: MemoryDragon
Summary: Heero tried to hide his past. He thought if she knew, she wouldn't be able to love him. But the rain washes away sins and brings acceptance...
Characters: Heero Yuy/OC (bear with me?  The point wasn't romance and she had to be an OC to work...)
Warnings: O_o It's just odd.
Author's notes:  Okay, I should start off by saying this one is weird.  It is just a really odd little fic that I don't even really remember writing. I literally found it under my bed. I think it was one of those times I was bored in class and just started writing... Usually, that results in me rambling, but that time it resulted in a fic.

Not that I mind the rain... )
Here we go, on with Part 2. 

Part 1

Part Two: Reality )
From Daydreams to Reality
By: Memory Dragon
Disclaimer: I don't own Gundam Wing and make no claim to.
Summary:  Fifteenyearold Jamie Satory loves to daydream about the Gundam pilots. But what about the guy that daydreams about her? And what would happen if reality kicked in? OC contest fic.
Characters: Heero Yuy, Duo Maxwell, OC/OC
Author's Notes:  This was a contest fic written for the 2004 GW Original Character Fanfiction Contest.  It won first place for Best Humor and was basically a satire of the classic Mary Sue writer.  It was fun.  Just goes to show you should be careful what you wish for... 

Part One - Daydreams )
And now, the end.  Not one of my best fics, over all, but it was still fun.  I do remember that much.  And angsty, but that's generally a given.  Anyway, here you go.

Epilogue )

 

One more chapter after this!

Time for Action )

 

Now on to Chapter 5.  Trust me, when I'm posting normally you'll be reading a lot more notes because I like to talk a lot.  You're just lucky since I'm doing things quickly.  XD
Time to Prepare )

 

Oh look!  New icons Cy made for me.  <3 <3 <3  I do adore her.  And I think since I'm through with the rp stuff, I'll just keep posting chapters of this to get it out of the way.  Hopefully once I'm through with the fics I can get to posting new stuff.  

Anyway, on with Chapter 4!


The Truth of the Matter )
Here we go again, Chapter Three. 

Title Chapter... )
Chapter Two, coming right up!  Also, this marks the start of the Quote of the Chapter/Fic.  Since those have become a staple to my fics, I thought I should point out the first one.  <3  It actually has nothing to do with the chapter this time either, more just what was going on with my life at the time, but hey...
The Search Begins )

 

On with the first chapter!  Make sure you read the prologue first, btw.  Hopefully, this isn't as bad as I remember it to be, though it's a very slim hope.  Then again, I've never met hope when it wasn't on a diet.  ^_^;;;

Vengeful Hearts )
