The End Plotted
ardwynna: (Default)
I’ve got a slew of little marriageverse short fics in progress and no clue which one to work on finishing first.

1. The one where Ella wanders off into the woods.

2. The one where Sephiroth wakes up handcuffed to the bedpost.

3. The one where Aeris deals with parenting anxieties.

4. The one where Sephiroth finds something odd between the couch cushions.

5. The one where Sephiroth finds something even odder on his desk at work.

6. The one where Sephiroth brings home The Dog.

7. The one where Sephiroth brings home a boy (Guardians).

8. The one where Ella goes to the prom.

9 The one where Sephiroth has to race the twins to the emergency room.

10. The one where Aeris starts university.

These, plus three epic length fics, a long story arc about Ella quitting ballet and taking up another hobby before the stage calls her back, another one about Aeris becoming the Planet's premiere expert on Lifestream phenomena and Ancient Culture, the twins growing apart and Sephiroth growing comfortably old. Some days I look at the outline file and my head hurts so much I take up my embroidery instead. :/ And this isn't even counting the endgame fic.

I've become a sad, annoying little person who talks more about my plans and goals instead of actually accomplishing them. What a joke.

One of the things I hate about the way I write is how I labor over every word and crank things out as slow as a snail. But that's not the topic today. One of the things I LOVE about the way I write is how my brain figures everything out while I've got my back turned doing other things. It might be like this for other people but I've never asked around. There was quite a drastic slow down in consciously plotting these past few years, completely expected under the circumstances. Apparently, somewhere in the back of the brain, something was cooking and these past few months there's been an explosion of everything back there coming to the fore.

The Jackalope fic? Outlined, begun, and tying in with Path and the Marriageverse in an unexpectedly epic way. Path's eventual sequel? Shaping up and actually making more sense. Even the 'End Of It All' story that comes at the end of the happy interlude of the marriageverse fics, the whole thing has begun to fit together in my head in the best of ways. While I was off getting a degree, my subconscious created a beautiful monster. I love my little AU-verse! :3

To deal with that thing I hate about the way I write, I'm going to try like hell to reach at least 500 words a day. It's not much, some days I might get more, hopefully never less, but something done is better than nothing. The main things might not see daylight till they're complete but no more distraction fics.

I know there aren't too many AeriSeph fans left reading this space but it may be of some interest to those of you still around. Last night/this morning I opened up Path of Seduction for my first reread in I don't know how long, too long, and came to the conclusion that it reads like it was written by a 19 year old. Because it was. I do want to finish it, but stylistically it wouldn't match because I don't write like that anymore, and couldn't and wouldn't besides. I've decided not to do a full rewrite because life needs living and that fic took everything I had to give while it was active. So I'll be going back over the chapters and doing some serious editing at some point, and clearing up some rough points that I've learned to recognize over the years.

The plot won't change, major events will stay the same, I'll just be reworking some of the prose. Because it's not all bad, on occasion I come across a phrase and think, "I wrote that? Neat." But Chapter 1 in particular does not represent what the fic could be by its conclusion, and Chapter 1 is how you put butts in seats, fic-wise. This might seem like complaining about nothing because it's that same Chapter 1 that worked for so long. But it doesn't feel like me anymore, so Project Path Update is on the table, being stared at long and hard.

I finished my NaNoWriMo an hour or so ago, so now I can go back to writing SOLDIER porn.;p 50093, my first NaNo win ever and a real first for me to turn off the editing voice for a while and just let the plot roll. I hope that's not carpal tunnel syndrome I feel setting in. And I'm tired, but in a good way.

In other news, one should not whack a Terry's chocolate orange against one's own head. It's not the chocolate that will come undone.
