WA is back! yay!

Since LJ appears to be still dead, I'll post this here for anyone looking for more details.

Highlights from a quick and partial read of Minekura's blog post:

* The rights to WA have been transferred from Tokuma Shoten to Ichijinsha.

* WA will (eventually) appear in Zero Sum.

* Ichijinsha is re-issuing vol. 1-6 which will go on sale in October.

* No date yet for when the series will continue serialization, but she'll let us know.

* She thanks the Chara Editorial dept. for letting her publish her "imperfect" BL and Tokuma for letting her transfer the rights.

* WA was transferred for two main reasons: 1) WA didn't really fit with Chara's other content and 2) her health over the past year and the impossibility of keeping up with the publishing schedule.

Even though there is no date for its return yet, I AM SO EXCITE. I knew we would eventually be rewarded for our patience! Also I forgot how smoking hot Kubo-chan is....

One unintended benefit of the latest LJ f*kery..

Is that it finally gave me the kick in the pants I needed to start posting here again, which I had been meaning to do. Not that I have anything really exciting to say, mind.

I have considered importing my LJ over here and starting to cross-post like many on my FL, but I am undecided, probably because I never meant this journal to be a mirror of my LJ. I have considered making another DW that matches my LJ username and using that as a mirror but that seems like it would only complicate things further and oh god I am thinking about this way too much, aren't I. Maybe I'll forgo the importing and just start cross-posting.

Anyway, I do hope more people become active here on DW; I think what's been keeping people from being more involved is that are so many long-established communities on LJ that people don't want to leave, which I can understand. For now, I suppose it's not too much of a bother to check both sites for updates and such.

Craigslist is failing to provide me with the perfect apartment of my dreams, internet. Why is this. I thought the crappy economy would result in high vacancy rates and good deals, but so far this has not proven to be the case. I keep seeing the same crappy apartments over and over again, and I've been scouring the listings since February. Maybe everybody's staying put due to the crap economy. Maybe I should stay put too since my job is not exactly totally secure. But I really don't know if I can deal with my downstairs neighbor for another year. Every time I tell myself I should chill out and not let him bother me I hear his voice it's ARGH INSTANT RAGE.

I'm mouldering away with boredom at work as well. Everyone is off at graduation, so it's very quiet and I have already cleared my to-do list. I wish I could just leave.

I need to write a drabble this weekend, maybe take a look at some of the prompts for the Minekura fic meme since I have all this time now. Hmm, and type up my thoughts re: the latest WA chapter. I feel kind of bad for wishing this arc would just end already, but I kind of hope it would just end already. I want to get back to what's happening in the present day.

Fic ideas, fic ideas

Now that my semester is over (yesss) and I have a brief respite before the next one begins, I'm thinking more about fic ideas, especially the one I can't get out of my head, the family fic, as I'm informally dubbing it. I think the idea originated with this fanart by Yuki Hinoki; originally I wanted to write a crackfic surrounding them and their little family, but like most of my fic ideas it never materialized.

Then Minekura started working the family theme and the desire returned, but this time I thought to myself, why does it have to be crackfic? Why couldn't it be believable in the context of the WA universe, which does itself have a bit of a spec fic premise (crazy drug that turns people into beasts).

Maybe I'll do some outlining this weekend now that I am mercifully assignment-free...

I am the greatest!

Well, not really. But I have basically finished my final project aside from 1) making sure it reads ok and 2) actually uploading it to the wiki. But the hard parts are done. Now that the end of the semester is nigh, I really am feeling like I don't want to take any classes this summer. But if I don't I'll never finish, at least in a timely fashion. But I don't want to sit in class for 12 hours a week for 7 weeks either. *sob* Why must improving my life be so inconvenient?

Plus I owe drabbles to people over at LJ. Must start work on them.

Plus there is the story idea that has been eating my brain. Kubo-chan, Tokito, and a tiny adorable child that belongs to them...

Speaking of WA, I really really hope somebody who is not me translates this chapter. Doing it always gets me all worked up, in a bad way.

Just a little "hello" to all my LJ buds who might wander by. If you don't have a DW yet/don't plan to get one, you can always log in with OpenID!


I need to figure out how to customize my journal and make it more aesthetically appealing. I should know how to do this by now, yes?
