Hello there, neglected internets. The school term is over, as well as the rush of post-school social obligations and “important junk I should have done when school was on but didn't have time.” I'm hankering (with minimal luck) to find a work experience job for the summer and failing that I'll be going back to classes in a little under a month, but either way I expect less homework and less stress and a little more free time in the coming months (even if I do classes, I opted for a summer of undergrad languages courses rather than stuff in my grad program, so I'm kinda doing something more on the fun side. Hello Mandarin and Spanish! ...Would have had to take tests to do Japanese so bleh XD)
If there are people out there on the internets who were perhaps fond of my life reports/crazy Mama stories, I apologize for neglecting this important part of your daily entertainment. I'd give you a good Mama story or something right now, but you aren't really up to speed, internet. After a certain point it just gets kind of hard to report anything to anyone who's been out of the loop and have it make sense, you know?
Like, say, right now my Mama calls me every day, probably because she thinks a large percentage of my friends, classmates, and acquaintances are trying to stab or poison me or are complicit in the stabbing and poisoning of me (the “probably” goes to this being the reason she calls me every day. I know for totes sure she thinks people are trying to stab and poison me) and also she thinks I need to understand the divorce rate in our country is really high so I really need to not be so picky about marriage cause you can just divorce if you turn out not to like him everyone does it. These things go in the same sentence because they are closely related.
See what I mean?
Anyway, I have Plans. Like always. This time, the Plans is to fix up the shoddy parts of my scripts so that Random Scanlations can actually release the 4 chapters they've had entirely scanlated for quite some time now and just been sitting around waiting for me to heal up the blemishes ^_^; First priority! (And I've got two so far. Look at me go! *Note: This is actually really sad. It doesn't take that long and I still managed to get so little done. Oh, productivity, where did you go? XD)
After that, there is much random stuffs, and probably life stuffs afoot. One of those things is fixing up MORE of my old scripts so Random Scanlations can just pick them up and use them rather than having to wait for me like this. But also....TRANSLATE NEW CHAPTERS. I haven't even read the new ones, guys. I have so much to read. The end of the game! EXCITING. You might not expect anything TOO amazing from my pace, I admit I'd kinda like to get other things done besides translating with my free time, but I do still love my Oofuri, and this is happening, guys!
And on a random note, I can't help noticing the chapter I just proofed and probably getting released in short order (if you haven't read another version already) is the infamous fantasy talk. Which reminds me hey, didn't I write a fic involving that once? Like, a fic I actually finished and everything? And then set off for a moment to give an edit one last time before posting? And then there was school and then...
Yeah. ...Gotta say, after all this time waiting because of that edit, not feeling much like doing that edit. I am just posting this sucker. I'm willing to bet there were things I was deeply dissatisfied with about this. Just being me and all. All the lovely bolded areas are also kind of a giveaway too I guess. Most of them don't have reasons listed though... And the great thing is, after all this time, I can't really be brought to remember or care all that much! This is probably going to be the most low-stress fic posting experience of my life. AWESOMENESS.
One of My Better Ideas
Rating: General Audiences
Pairing: Izumi Kousuke/Mizutani Fumiki
Characters: Izumi KousukeMizutani Fumiki
Additional Tags: Crossdressing, Birthday
Summary: Birthday plans work best when at least one of the people involved actually understands what the plan is and also has the appropriate genitalia. Only one of these things turned out to be true and, in Mizutani's opinion, this only makes it worse.
