Yes, yes, so the previous chapter was posted in DECEMBER 2009. I had exams and this chapter was hard! :P I've been poking at it on and off since then.

(Disclaimers: The Silver City is my take on the one introduced by Gaiman in his Sandman series and short story Murder Mysteries. Gabriel, whom I claimed for this [livejournal.com profile] fanfic100 challenge, is mentioned by name in Good Omens, where it’s implied that he is Aziraphale’s supervisor, but other than that I am taking free rein with the appearances and personalities of him and the other archangels. Aziraphael and Gadre’el are my take on what Aziraphale and Crowley were like in Heaven before the Fall; they are the property of Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett.
 
Thanks to my dear beta Jen/[livejournal.com profile] steadfast for helping with ideas, editing and the idea for the Michael-Gabriel dynamic. (Michael is inspired by Jen’s version and she has no objection to my borrowing him.)
 
Additional Note: Uriel is Presider over Thunder and Terror while Gabriel is Prince of Ice and Thunder; here, I explore my idea of the story behind this.
 
Chapter 2: Prompt 021 – Friends.
 
 
Gabriel laughed at the feeling of the wind ruffling his feathers, looping in the air and luxuriating in the pure joy of flight, of the feel of wind against hair and skin and feathers... )


Reviews would be lovely. <3

I've been on a cleaning/organisational frenzy at home since my job contract ended, and clearly it's extending to LJ. I thought I should try to collect all my fics (the ones I'll admit to, anyway) together in one place. I suck at ratings, so if you think something should be rated differently, please comment saying so. :)

Bear in mind that the earliest stories are most likely not all that good; I started writing fanfic in 2005 and I was only 12 going on 13 then. And that there is a fair amount of slash (male/male pairings: the pairings are stated clearly, so if it offends you, please don't read), and some of the role-play entries may be friends-locked (however, if you add my RP accounts as friends to read them, I will add you back ASAP).

The lovely [livejournal.com profile] jolantru  has recently published a book, Wolf at the Door, and last night I attended her book launch party at a nice little place called The Garden Slug. Other members of the Speculative Fiction Writers of Singapore were there too, and a lovely time was had.

Sadly, I didn't have the presence of mind to snap pictures of the food before we attacked it (June did take pictures though, and when/if I see those, I'll post them here if she gives me permission). Everything looked good, and the vegetarian pizza I shared with Mint Kang and a couple of other people was delicious. But the best thing was the dessert. *__*



Sadly, this is just what was left when Mint and I stopped long enough for rational thought and realised a picture would have been a good idea; before that, we were in a happy dessert-induced daze. This dessert platter was ambrosial.

The brown chocolate thing on a popsicle stick was a brownie popsicle, coated in fudge and deliciousness. The remnants of brown powder and cream next to it were all that was left of the tiramisu. That lump of white ice cream scored by our forks is actually vanilla gelato. And the stem attached to a tiny piece of brown flesh, with another piece of flesh nearby, is all that was left of the amazing stewed pear. According to the menu, it was stewed in white wine and cinnamon. It arrived still warm and soft and cinnamon-scented and it was SO GOOD. Especially when you ate a piece together with a forkful of gelato; you had a heavenly explosion of sweetness in your mouth. The grapes and strawberries were sweet enough, I guess, but after several mouthfuls of stewed pear and gelato, the berries seemed too sour. XD

Joyce held a mini quiz and I won signed cover art and a bag of chocolate. :D I passed the chocolate around and, sadly, forgot to get it back before leaving. XD Unfortunately I'd had to leave early, it was already nearing 9.30 by then and I'd told my family I'd leave by 9 plus, so I had to miss Joyce's reading.

Today I went for a job interview at Kinokuniya! The interviewers were nice, but I'm scared I might have been too nervous and talked extra-fast. There were probably too many 'Um's too. And I wasn't expecting the mathematical questions at the end - silly of me in retrospect since I was applying for the positon of cashier, but I didn't think I'd need to convert Japanese yen to SGD! I haven't done Maths since the end of my O Levels in 2008; I'd better brush up on my mental arithmetic. I really hope I get this job; I'd love to be able to work in a bookstore. Kinokuniya is an amazing bookstore with a fantastic selection and I'd be surrounded by books and aiding the cause of getting people to read more and... *____*

In other news, I'm poking at my [livejournal.com profile] fanfic100  challenge again; I edited some of Chapter 2 but I'm still stuck at the end, as I was over a year ago. I'm going to beg [livejournal.com profile] steadfast  for help. XD I'm also considering joining the 2011 [livejournal.com profile] rs_games  writing challenge; I haven't written Harry Potter fanfiction in aaages (this was my last piece, I believe) even if I lurk and read quite a bit, so I should probably write a few drabbles as practice or something before tackling the challenge itself.

Meanwhile, it's time for my annual re-read of [livejournal.com profile] irisbleufic 's Crown of Stars series. *goes to read*
sivaroobini: (Crowley inner turmoil)

Aargh. My A Levels were finished at the end of last November and I have a break until university starts much later this year. I'd been looking forward to this period SO MUCH last year, and planning what I'd do kept me going.

Now the months stretch ahead of me and I have so many things to do but just can't bring myself to finish them. Would the word ennui be appropriate? There are times when I just walk around the house, unable to motivate myself to finish any of my current projects or start a new one. None of them seem to appeal to me; sometimes they do but I don't feel like doing them anyway. When I'm on the computer, instead of writing or doing anything productive, I spend hours faffing about on Facebook or reading (in some cases, rereading) fanfiction.

Maybe a list will help. Things that are in progress will be italicised, things I've completed will be struck off.

*stares at list* This is going to end up like that post-O Level list of mine, isn't it? Lakshmi and I wrote up a nice long list and we only did a few things on it. Sigh.

For some reason it won't let me edit this entry in HTML O.o so here's the link to the prompt table: sirius-luva.livejournal.com/34881.html

I have already written and had edited the first chapter (and am halfway through the second) of my [livejournal.com profile] fanfic100  project, titled Memos from the Messenger - thanks to [livejournal.com profile] steadfast  for being my betamuse and to [livejournal.com profile] lumelle  for the title! I'll post the first chapter once I'm done with this post, and then edit in the link. Let's hope I remember to return here to add each new chapter to the table as I write, and that the HTML doesn't mess with me. 8D

Edit: I realise that my layout, being rather narrow, prevents you from seeing the whole table. :\ I suppose you could either try adding 'viewstyle=mine' into the URL to view this entry in your own journal layout or just use the tags system, since anything I write for this should be under the memos from the messenger tag; meanwhile I'll keep an eye out to see if any other journal layouts make me fall in love with them as I did with this.

I got an e-mail a few hours ago.


fanfic100_admin (fanfic100_admin) replied to a comment you left in a LiveJournal post. The comment they replied to was:
Name of Fandom: Good Omens
What your Fandom is: A book by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett
What you are claiming: The Archangel Gabriel
What your claim is: Character

Their reply was:
Subject: Re: FANFIC100 CLAIM
Thank you. Your claim will be added to the table shortly. Sorry for the delay




I swear, when I saw this I literally went, "AAAAHH!" in excitement. I had this humungous grin on my face. Then I called my best friend and talked at her (yes, at) about this for a couple hours. Being my best friend, she was nearly as excited about it as I was. I'd been worried that they might not accept it as Gabriel's name is mentioned ONCE in the book.

And then I began to panic after the initial elation. I had had some ideas, vague plot bunnies running about in my head, but now that I've been accepted, evidently Elmer (or Elmo?) Fudd has been on a 'kill the wabbit' rampage in there. My mind has gone completely blank. I KNEW I should have written them down somewhere. At least the title's on a tiny Post-it somewhere under a pile of junk on my table.

I don't know if you're reading this, [livejournal.com profile] lumelle , but your fanfic100 set, A Hundred White Feathers, has sort of set a standard to follow, to me at least.

*raises glass* Here's to the excitement, headaches, frustration, relief, knotty plot points and characters, typos, drama, crushed papers and HTML buggery I foresee as I take on the task of writing a hundred short stories about Gabriel, the Strength of God.



(Why, yes, I made that myself. ^_^)
