Okay, so… I’m not promising anything, here, but the bunnies for today, my day off, have been tugging me back to my Tenipuri Nationals re-write. And I think I know why I stalled so hard on this one. It was trying too hard to keep the relatively decent parts of Nationals canon. Which, to be honest, /don’t fit/ after you’ve fixed all the howling moments of WTF.  So, now I’m doing another editing sweep to refamiliarize myself which what I actually did, and contemplating the possibility of, um, Seigaku losing. I mean, everything else I could fit in reasonably well! But let’s face it, Konomi did not make a good narrative case for Seigaku being able to actually win against Rikkai, not with Yukimura at even half-strength. *frowns at the story* If they do win, the momentum to that point nearly demands that it be, essentially, by luck. Which is fine, but /that/ demands a follow-up, and oh god I don’t know if I’m up to re-writing the Invitational arc. 

Eh, for now, let’s just look at the next bit. Which is Atobe’s arc! And Atobe is /always/ fun to write, especially when he gets into it with Sanada.

I was tagged by [personal profile] xochiquetzl. (Long overdue, I know.)

5 things you’ll find in my bag: ball pens (even red if you're lucky), a small sewing kit, a pocket knife, painkillers (I get migraines often, so...), a pack of tissues

5 things you’ll find in my bedroom: books, books, books, books and oh... have I mentioned books already?

5 things I’ve always wanted to do: write a book (a novel), publish the book, visit Scotland, become fluent in Japanese (slowly getting there), get my DNA checked to see the ancestry (you know that fancy thing that tells you nationalities of your ancestors)

5 things that make me happy: some chocolate, a good book, a good fanfic, a little bit of manual work (like tinkering with my laptop or putting some piece of furniture together), getting things done

5 things I’m currently into: Harry Potter, Shingeki no Kyojin (aka Attack on Titan), Fate series, computers and IT

5 things on my to-do list: write a paper for a conference, write a grant application, write another paper for another conference, learn a bit more German, do some "cleaning" in my email box.

Tag yourself if you want to :)
