For the Pokemon Big Bang @ LJ

Refuge at Sea
Author: QuoteMyFoot
Artist(s): [livejournal.com profile] kimivalkyrie (mixer)
Beta-Reader: [livejournal.com profile] therixkeycopy
Verse: Games, set in Kanto. In story, 3 years after HGSS and 2 years-ish after Platinum.
Characters: Looker, Lt. Surge, Sailor Kent [Matthews, of Glitter Lighthouse fame], a number of OCs of varying importance.
Rating: 15ish/T
Wordcount: 38,000
Warnings: Offscreen death and the discussion thereof, language, mentions of domestic abuse, some violence
Summary: Interpol Agent Looker is good at solving mysteries, so when a high-profile sailor dies in Vermillion City, he’s put on the case. Turns out that it’s harder than it seems to solve a case with an obvious answer... and the Gym Leader who insisted on tagging along isn’t helping things.
Notes: As there’s no backstory for Looker (that I’m aware of), I’ve taken some liberties and invented one for him. And made him Greek.
If you see something that’s not the way it is in our world... uh, AU handwavey wave? In all seriousness, I have a headcanon history for the pokemon world as alternate!Earth, and most of my world-building follows from that.
Also, I was really strapped for time (university requires work, blah) when it came to tweaking the second half of this. I hope that it will still be an enjoyable read, but please be a little forgiving if the quality goes downhill. Thank you <3

Because... I am kinda losing track of all the things I've filled, so... list time! :D

Mostly oldest -> newest order.

Almost 80 pages now that I've actually split the thing into chapters.

But... it's done. It's finished. I've written the last lines, even though I'm actually not too happy with that bit and will probably want my beta to have a gooood look at it. But it's done.

This is the first piece of non-oneshot fiction I have ever finished... ever.


...I'm too tired to just sit here in bask, I should be in bed, but I had to write this first:

I can do it. I can finish things. It is possible. I am not a hopeless case as a writer.

Take that, self.

So it's half past stupid o clock in the morning right now and I stayed up not two days ago to try and prevent this type of thing, but I don't care, because after hours and hours of just not being in the mood to write today, I've managed to churn out almost 2000 words! Looker is awkward to write still but I feel like I'm getting into it now and the plot is churning along at a nice sort of pace. I need to untangle the next few plot points a little but I suspect it may just come down to writing and seeing where that takes me. Right now I'm not sure if Looker is on the verge of an epiphany or whether the test results need to come back first.

Which reminds me that I need to get someone to have a look at that section. It seems obvious to me, but I wrote it and I know it's important.

Still. 8.8k and I think I'm on track to finish without a lot of trouble. I think I could possibly even squeeze it to ~20k rather than the 25-30k I was thinking previously. Well... we'll see.

...I really need a beta for this shit though.

Well if I wasn't in love with Becker before, I would be now. He took his shirt off. Best episode ever, omfg. So much fucking h/c with the poisoning and the bleeding, I cannot even deal. OMG, I WANT A BECKER PLZKTHNX.

Other amazing things in this episode: LESTER, YOU BAMF YOU. Phillip being a douche but oh god he is so brilliantly on the douchebaggery wagon, there should be laws made. If he is a real villain i will give the writers the thumbsdown of shame for being so obv, not even kidding, he has to be a well intentioned extremeist at least. Also, JESS' REACTION TO THE GIRL'S DEATH darling my heart goes out to you. Even worse when you remember she is 19, there's like what 5 years between her and that girl? Less? actually do love jess now.

Not so amazing things: Connor/Abby conflict. Look, Abster, I can see you being upset, but how was Connor supposed to help save the creatures when he was busy saving some kids and THE motherfucking becker, jesus woman calm the fuck down. I mean you fell for him when he couldn't talk his way out of a paper bag, you expected him to be different now why? Not that this excuses you Mr Temple, Burton just said 'kill rex!' and you were NOT all 'hey dude that is not cool', what. If there is an issue I expected you to come down HARD on Abby's side of things, it would be this one. Look i am calling ooc on this okay, deal with it.

But at the end of the day: Becker, minus a shirt. Winnerrr.

Maybe I don't prefer ff.net so much after all?

Anyway, just been busy acquiring me some Primeval icons, because having only Persona 3 just will not do! One from [livejournal.com profile] bea_tricks , [livejournal.com profile] bella_farfalla and [livejournal.com profile] sallymn as well as two from [livejournal.com profile] tli_productions . I'm currently showing off a particularly pretty one of Nick. Sadly, no Danny icons caught my attention. I did, however, have to stop myself stealing about three million Lester ones. XD

Had an exam today. This is the THIRD time I've done this exam so hopefully this will mean an A not a B this time. Damn those picky examining boards.

Also, been lurking in some Primeval communities and have seen a good number of complaints about 4.03. I'm finding myself agreeing with several points, but I actually have a thought about the lockdown system that people have been complaining about and I'm writing it here before I forget. Call this fanwanking maybe, but whatever.

Thoughts below the cut. )

Was there a point in my even making this? Well, since I'm posting here now, I guess there was.

Won NaNo 2010, whoop. With Pokemon fanfic, not so whoop. Fanfic that I'm unlikely to finish, even less whoop. Still, it was fun while it lasted, and it got me into fandoms a bit more. Been branching out recently - I now read Persona 3/4, Primeval, Pokemon, Naruto, Sherlock, Eyeshield 21 (in small doses) and even looked up some Fire Emblem fic recently.

One day, I might even USE this journal for my own fic. (Ha, that'll be a strange day.) Then maybe someone will see this other than me.

On a Primeval kick atm. Severely. Seriously, 5 ideas in what, 2-3 days? That said... His Dark Materials crosses over with literally anything. Just add daemons for instant awesome! (Note to self: Challenge: write a Persona/HDM crossover fic someday.)

For the curious (aka so I won't forget them): Connor/Abby+ Becker friendship and PTSD; future-fic from 4.03 (premature? what?); Primeval/Monster xover; Primeval/HDM xover; Becker/genderflip!Danny fic, which I'll probably never write but is fun to imagine.

In related news, have found that I ship Becker/Danny like whoa. And good god, it was like Becker was made to push all my fangirl buttons. Tall, dark, gorgeous, muscly, badass, snarky... Ooft. Why have I only just discovered this?
