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... )

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. )

Disclaimer: I do not own Tales of Vesperia, nor do I make any claim to.
Summary: Flynn wants a lot of things: his best friend and Second in Command to get along, the proper use of doors, to make a meal that won't knock people out, and possibly a little happiness of his own.  Sadly, only one of those is ever likely to happen.
Characters: Flynn/Yuri, Sodia, Repede
Warnings: I'm warning for Flynn on this one.  He's too frickin' adorable, and that deserves a lot of warning by itself.  Also, there are very brief dub/non-con thoughts of pushing someone before they are ready that the character stops himself from acting on.  It's only a paragraph, but it is there.  Finally, this is my first Tales venture, so I'm not too sure on the character voices.  Hopefully they work.
Rating: PG-13

Flynn couldn't find fault in how Yuri always came back here. )

Notes: You know, considering I've been playing Tales games for over ten years, it's kind of surprising that this is my first fic for the fandoms.  Never really felt the need to write any, to be honest.  However, while reading fic for this fandom, a pet peeve of mine jumped front and center and my mind decided it's been far too long since I've written protest fic.  Not to say this fandom is particularly filled with this problem (it was a single case, and all fandoms have at least one case of this), but the fic that finally annoyed me enough to do something about it was a Vesperia fic.  Which is how I've ended up writing a fic for characters I don't even technically ship romantically and a character I didn't actually like or dislike either way, with cuteness even I don't know what to do with.  Plus Repede, because Repede really is just awesome. 

In short, this fic is to show that characters A and B can get together without character C ruining their relationship and being bashed to high heaven.  Character C can even occasionally help in the getting of A and B together without being OOC or demeaned.  The fic kind of took on a life of its own, so I'm not sure how much protest is actually in there, but this is a fic that deals with the characters' Issues while being respectful to all of them.  Because no matter how much you dislike a character, there's someone else out there likes them, and it's nice to be respectful and acknowledge that.
Thanks: Many, many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] narwhale_callin for betaing this, despite never having played the game.  She helped me tighten this up, find a title, and generally sat through me sending her videos of cutscenes to catch her up on major plot points.  Many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] nemaline as well, who also hasn't played the game but was willing to look it over in my search for a title.


It was the soft breeze that woke Flynn up. )
Okay, so I'm still sick, and now I'm sore to top it off.  Stuffing 9000 bags really, really sucks, just so you know.  And it made me throw up yesterday, since the room was so frickin' hot, but hey.  I have a second free ticket to A-kon.  Since I really needed one.  But enough of me bitching about how sick I am, since that means longer sitting up and I'd kind of just like to go to bed. 

Do you know what I need in my life?  To make it complete?  This:
He'd be one badass Doctor.

And I mean NEED.  You cannot fathom how much I need this in my life.  It's almost to the point I want to post it to the anon meme, except I'd be far too scared of them actually giving me sex.  Which would break me, and not in a good way, because it's Sesame Street.  It would be like the whole Winny the Poo NC-17 fic that I saw a summary for and hid under the bed for days.  From being unfortunate enough to read the summary only.  Just no.

That stated, Grover Doctor would be awesome. 


Other plot bunnies. )

Okay, now to slink back to bed.  Because, ya know, we did stuff OVER 9000 bags.  Seriously, we made a plus one just for that meme.  We're sad nerds, we know.
