I can't sleep tonight - at all - so I've started a new save file in Pokemon Sun. Again. Again-again. Honestly, I've lost track. I've only stuck with two playthroughs, but still. I considered doing a Nuzlocke this time, but ultimately decided something my fiance suggested I do when the game was first released (and I had Moon version). I'm doing a semi-in-character playthrough with a character named Lilo. I don't know how this will go, exactly, beyond me catching all the weirdest, scariest sorts of Pokemon, but yeah. Should be fun!

There is now just one week left to post your assignments and pinch hits! All works should be posted by 11:55 p.m. PDT on October 2.  (Find out what time that is where you live.)

There will be time for minor edits during the late pinch hit period, but your works should fit the requirements of the challenge by this point or we may have to consider your assignment in default. (And, yes, we do check all of the posted works!)

I'm listening to 'That's How You Know' from Enchanted, and damnit, someone needs to write an Enchanted-type Steven Universe AU with Steven in the Giselle role and Lars in the Robert role. Yep, this needs to exist; sorry, I don't make the rules.

Down the rabbit hole...

I recently discovered Scarlett Johansson's recording of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, and it's so good! It has totally brought me back to my love of - and fascination with - the Alice books and various other media. (Mostly the '51 Disney film.)

I'm also up to my neck in fangirlish adoration of Hau. (With a side of love for Haudion.) Such a precious child! I love him and I just want him to be happy; I can't wait to see what goes on with him in the alternate reality that is USUM.

Which fictional world would you most like to visit?

 Adorable fanart has inspired me! The artist has requested no reposting of their work, so just check out the source link here for an insanely cute drawing of Hau and Gladion on a Disney vacation.

I always love the idea of real world AUs where characters visit Disney parks, so this is just too tempting to use as fic inspiration!

EDIT: Fixed the link!

Getting into gear!

Going to start my entry with the question, this time, rather than end with it:

What is your favorite (fiction) book? Or even your top three? 

I'll admit, I have something to gain from this: I'm looking for more to read, and I'd love recommendations! It does go beyond that, though. I'm very curious to see what books appeal to which people I've talked to on this site. I like looking for patterns in these things.

That said... My rekindled interest in reading has been further fueled by today's email from NaNoWriMo. November is just over a month away, and despite my previous acknowledgment that I am unlikely to ever finish a full-length, involved work - particularly fanfic - I'm giving it a go, as usual. I've yet to win NaNo - this will be my sixth year participating, but only my third or fourth really going for it - but still enjoy the experience every time. The community is great, although given that I usually get far more involved with my local NaNo community than the official site's, and my region is currently without an ML, I'm not sure how much that'll be a factor this year.

Anyway, I'm hoping to win this year, but expecting it less than ever: My fiancee will be visiting from the 19th of November to the 1st of December this year. (My first Thanksgiving with her; very exciting!) I also don't know what I'll be writing. Probably fic, sure, but what fandom? I'm not sure. Pokemon is probably the safest bet, because I always go back to Pokemon and there's so much source material to work with. Of course, there's always my beloved Disney. Who knows what movie will catch my interest in November? And Steven Universe has a powerful pull; I'd love to write for it.

I might pull a NaNo Rebel this year, too... Either by writing multiple (though probably connected) pieces, or by continuing a fic or series I've already started. Or even both, maybe - I could continue the Incidents at Temple University series, or turn my current Pokemon WIP into a series of short fics.
