I've done some reading through the rest of the archive and have more to do yet. Hope to get through the fandoms I'm interested in before reveals.

Next on the agenda: replying to DW comments and catching up on flist!

A few things to keep in mind, about Yuri!!! on ICE and about any canon.

Word of God is not canon. What's on the screen or on the page is canon. Word of God is supplementary material that you are welcome to incorporate but you are not obliged to. We do not live in a universe where Greedo shot first!

Actions speak louder than words. People don't always say what they mean. They don't always know what they mean. When they try to explain their motivations after the fact, they may get them wrong or they may not be able to admit their true motivations. That applies whether you're taking a Doylist or Watsonion point of view.

Just because Kubo or Yuuri says, "hey, looking at these matching gold rings that canonically engaged couple JJ & Isabella are wearing makes me want to go buy a matching set of expensive gold wedding bands to wear on our wedding band fingers and exhange them with Victor on the steps of a church -- it will be just like that time my high school handicrafts club sewed matching bookmarks for everyone!" doesn't mean that was actually Yuuri's motivation, even if Yuuri tells himself it is. Or Kubo tells us it is.

People can't always articulate their feelings. One anime scene that strongly impressed me in years gone by was in Nana. Early on, Hachi and her boyfriend are away on a trip together. She asks him to tell her that he loves her. At first he says, "Don't ask a Japanese man to say that!" But he can tell she really wants to hear it, so he starts psyching himself up to it: I'm an American. My name is Michael. But he still can't say it and in the end, Hachi says it's okay, she heard him say it in her heart.

Obviously, not everyone will have that much trouble speaking about their feelings, but it's something to keep in mind.

Your interpretation is valid. I can interpret Yuuri and Victor's relationship in a lot of different ways and I really love that. You do you.

Personally, you will never convince me that Otabek is a DJ.

So, this happened after all. My reward for finishing my Choc Box fic and also for suffering through a cold the last few days. This is only the 9th story in this fandom on AO3 but at least it's not a rare pair!

Res Gestae

✔ Finished & uploaded Choc Box fic(s)

✔ Caught up on AO3 comments

✔ Avoided dropping all my YOI & tenipuri WIPs to write ACCA porn (believe me, this is an actual accomplishment, at least this week!)

✔ Started making notes on the next Chris/Georgi instalment; should be the end of the narrative arc and I'm going to be both sad and relieved to be done. I've had the ending in mind for a while but now I have to work out how to get them there. Also, do more canon review. Chris at the GPF really kills me, I feel so sad for him. And when Victor says he's returning to skating, I can't help but feel deeply sad for Georgi as well. *kicks Victor in the shin*

✔ Started thinking maybe my potential exchange commitments for February and March are a bit much! But I really want to do all of them, so I don't know. "Moderation in all things" is a lesson I've never been able to internalize.


Res Not So Gestae

𝙓 Did not catch up on LJ/DW comments, but soon, soon.

𝙓 Various life chores still undone, but that's chronic.

𝙓 Gave up on a Choc Box treat I hoped to write based on realizing I needed to get on with other WIPs.

𝙓 Did not get any back catalogue AO3 archiving done. To be honest, it's mostly that I don't want to spam people who have subbed to my updates with X-Files fic I wrote 18 years ago. If there's a way to add back-dated fic without triggering update emails, I would love to know what it is.


In other news, I hope you're all having/have had a great weekend!

Dreamwidth: I'm a fancy writer. Here are some important details about my process.

Twitter: I want to punch a unicorn.

Just did my check-in for [community profile] getyourwordsout: 16,039 words for the year to date, which is more than double what I need for my goal. (I'm trying to front-load my total to allow for slumps later on.) That's a lot of words for me, so I'm feeling pretty good!

One of my goals for writing this year is to be more wordy. That's a bit odd -- I think people are usually striving for the opposite -- but I generally have a fairly cut-down prose style that can be, well, inaccessible. A beta charitably told me it "requires close reading". I'm trying to "tell" a little more than I do now, at least most of the time.

I also feel like a lot of my work in the last six months has been fairly downbeat. Not sad, necessarily, but with a more sober mood. I'm trying to get back to a breezier mood and plottier stories for a while.

What are your current writing goals? Wordcount? Stylistic?

I am sleepy after getting up in the middle of the night to watch Roger and Rafa battle it out one more time.

I regret nothing.

There are still good things in the world.

When working on fic for one sports series, do not watch an episode from another while on your break. Or you may end up saying, "Yuuri and Victor don't need any more help from me to be in love. These volleyball dorks, on the other hand..."

Kageyama grabbing Hinata's collar and saying 'Nice cover'

Still catching up with S3. This is from E06, which was so intense! Like I said on Twitter, I was shipping Tsukki/Kageyama up til the last moment, when the KageHina was so strong it became a black hole that sucked in every other pairing, including pairings from every other sports series. I just managed to save Inui/Kaidoh from crossing the event horizon but everything else was lost.

So, rings

We see matching rings three times in Yuri!!! on Ice, which I thought was cool.

First is during Georgi's Free Skate in episode 7, when he's thinking about Anya. There's a photo on her Instagram of matching rings with her new guy.
