This is kind of late, but wanted to give a shout-out to lunchy_munchy  who did yet another totally awesome podfic - of Dear Kunsel this time!  With music and sound effects and everything.

Also, MikoAucarod on FFN has been translating The Fifth Act into Spanish!  Which is all kinds of awesome.  El Quinto Acto.  Six chapters up so far, which is probably the furtherest I've ever seen any translation attempt on any multi-chapter fic go (at least, the ones that translate from other languages to English).  He also did Dear Kunsel!  Querido Kunsel.  Which has me ridiculously chuffed.  So what I'm saying is, if you read this journal and you speak Spanish and want to read those fic, MikoAucarod has made this possible and you should check it out.  (Though logically, if you're reading this in English then why on earth wouldn't you be able to read the fic in English too...)

As for IRL matters, work is about to become very very busy and I am kind of terrified of seeing out the end of a huge project all on my own, but chances are once the deadline looms large I will simply be too busy to actually worry about it so I'm thinking about Dissidia heaps instead.  I hunger for unlockables.  Labryinth mode annoys me, though - what's the point of having a whole quarantined section of the game that doesn't let you transfer anything other than your level?  Also you wind up having to reset ALL your characters whenever you want to go in there, most annoying, especially when you're one of those people (like me) who customises AP allocations obsessively.  It doesn't even give you level up bonuses on Bonus Day!
 
Somewhat related, I've once again become distracted with writing Dissidia fic.  Dissidia itself teeters perilously between crack and tragedy, which is kind of my personal sweet spot, so this isn't really surprising.  There is not enough Dissidia fic in the world.  This needs to be rectified.

I agree with the "not enough Dissidia fic in the world". Despite me not having played Dissidia yet UM.

Additionally I think I found someone who topped our crossovering a crossover by making a crossover between a crossover and a crossover.

Really, is playing Dissidia so necessary? It's more or less just a trans-FF crossover. Playing all ten games would almost suffice. :P

:O IT IS AMAZING THAT THE UNIVERSE COULD SURVIVE SUCH A FANDOM SINGULARITY.

... You know, I was actually considering doing just that, and it's entirely your fault for writing Dissidia stories and getting me all excited about it >8(

What do you have to say in your defence?

IT IS TERRIFYING. I AM NOT PREPARED AND CONSTANTLY WORRYING ABOUT MONEY AND BEING TIGHTFISTED. D: (So this means you're coming right? RIGHT? *____* YES TO MANIFEST?)

XD THAT SEEMS LIKE A SENSIBLE STATE OF BEING. Have you thought about applying for a credit card? It might serve as a good safety net.

Of course I'm coming to Manifest! 95% sure at this stage. Not sure if I can come for days before or after yet, but will definitely be there on the weekend.

Thank you for the shout out! Also, I think I shall enjoy passing by everyone at manifest and imagining they are you XD

Twas the least I could do! ^_^

The answer to this riddle is, of course, that I am everyone at Manifest, and everyone at Manifest is me. I didn't realise you were a Melbournian!

'Tis true, I do hail from the sort-of-fair town of Melbourne :D

I also got all excited when I saw you were a fan of Eminence and went to an awesomesauce final fantasy concert!!!!!

...in Sydney D:

Awesome! Haha, Sydney seems to be getting the lion's share of events this year, certainly. Speaking of Eminence, did you hear?! They're doing a concert after SMASH! in July! ...Which is also in Sydney. XD

Re: shameless pimpin' time.
I'm writing fic about Gokudera at Tsuna's wedding, stressing over every little detail and driving everyone crazy. THIS IS WHAT EXAM SEASON DOES TO ME, APPARENTLY.

Re: shameless pimpin' time.
Is this for KHR Undercover? Because you may have just blown the 'undercover' part. Regardless, I approve of this development.. EXAM SEASONS ARE AWESOME.

No, it's not for the exchange! It's just the form my escapism has taken this time. ONCE IT IS FINISHED, I WILL SEND IT YOUR WAY.

IRK? I'm good friends with her. We normally do those girl nights together, by girl nights, i.e watching bl and then discussing. LOL
