 Hey guys! This is just a post to say that all of my personal journal entries are F-locked (all fic is generally left unlocked =3)! If you want to be added just comment here~ I'll most likely add back if I know you from somewhere, otherwise let me know where you're from/how you found me so we're not complete strangers~ ^^

The Ten Minute Writing Challenge

Tagged by whitewings9/aroundthecoffeepot

Rules:
1) You can only write for the allotted time of ten minutes! No more and no less!
2) No brainstorming allowed. No pre-planning. The 10 minute starts the moment you even think about the story.
3) You must keep all mistakes. No backspace, no deleting. Everything must be kept as is! The only thing you're allowed to do is strike through the words.
4) After your 10 minutes of allotted time, you may go back and edit what you wrote as much as you want, for as long as you want. Adding and completely changing what you wrote is allowed. (i.e. writing something that doesn't resembles what you wrote in style and length is ok).
5) When you're satisfied with what you wrote, mention how long it took you to complete your edited fic.
6) Post a summary of your story so viewers can see where you're headed
7) Post both versions up for people to compare between the 'raw' and 'polished' version ^^
8) Tagging is optional, but it'll be fun if you do. If you tag people, make sure to link them back to your post!


Summary:

He would be a fool not to feel any trepidation for what he is about to attempt; he’s been told time and time again that to perform the ritual at his level unsupervised is a folly that will undoubtedly cost him his life.

Written in ten minutes:

He draws his hood up and checks the runes on the floor for one last time; the markings have been made with painstaking detail, the lines crisp with no sign of smudges. It's something his life will depend on if - when - he succeeds. Candles are placed at regular intervals in their respective positions, and he lights the wicks with hands that tremble. He would be a fool not to feel any fear for what he is about to do; there are many ways in which the ritual may fail, and he'd been told time and time again that to attempt it unsupervised at his level was is folly.

'My level?' he thinks with contempt, dusting off his hands on his robes as he steps away from the circle markings, drawing a small dagger from the sheath at his hip. 'You have no idea of the things I can accomplish.' He's well aware that the spells he has been taught since learning the most basic for self-preservation are trivial. It is this that

No matter.

He makes a small cut on his smallest finger, letting the blood drip into the centre of his pentagram for but a moment before muttering a quick healing spell. The flesh there warms, sealing itself. It's imperative that the wound heals before

[218 words]


Edited version:

He draws up his hood, casting his features in shadow as he crouches to inspect his handiwork a final time; the runes on the floor have been etched with painstaking care, the lines drawn are crisp with not a smudge in sight.Collapse )

If you talk to me through AIM/fb/etc. you may have been wondering where I’ve disappeared to lately ^^’ Sorry about the vanishing act! Basically, I’ve managed to arrange two months of voluntary work doing admin which’ll mean I’ll get some work experience and an up to date reference even if I’m not getting paid - I started half way through last week, and I’ve got to say I need to get back into the routine of going to bed early so I can actually get up early in the mornings XD It’s nice to be doing something productive though.

In other stuff, we’ve got the ball rolling on stuff to do with Graduation as well, and I have my parents’ tickets booked. Uni are, however, being as inefficient as usual and haven’t got back to me regarding the extra ticket for my sister so she can push dad’s wheel chair. Also, the week after graduation I’m now definitely going to be jetting off toIndia for my cousin’s  wedding. That should be interesting since I haven’t seen anyone there since I was six,  and had a pretty different personality ^^’

I think that’s enough updating for now - I’m going to go back to catching up with Young Justice S2 so I stop spoilering myself by reading fic XD

Haze


After weeks of pestering, Arthur is delighted when Gilbert finally agrees to take him to an ale house. He hasn’t a clue what exactly had prompted Gilbert’s change of heart, but he certainly isn’t in a mind to question his good fortune.Collapse )

Summary: If he had thought to glide through this unruffled and unscathed, he now knows better. Gilbert is certainly not likely to humour him just because of his high birth, after all. Medieval AU.

Snowflake



By the third time that Gilbert deftly hooks his blade around Arthur’s and tugs the sword out of his grasp, Arthur is gritting his teeth in frustration. Gilbert lets the tip of his blade caress Arthur’s neck for another moment before withdrawing.Collapse )

Restless

Ten days. Arthur wills himself to wait for ten days before approaching Gilbert for an answer, and never before has he known time to pass so slowly.Collapse )

Accusations


He had ignored it at first; a slight prickling at the back of his neck as he trained with the other recruits, the sensation of eyes tracking his movements as he went about his day. If he’d started to catch glimpses of the youngest of Baron Kirkland’s children when the other had previously made himself scarce it could only be some kind of coincidence.Collapse )

Summary: Arthur finds it hard to concentrate on his etiquette and deportment lessons when he spots a talented young swordsman down in the courtyard. Medieval AU.

Beginnings


Shifting uncomfortably in his seat, Arthur attempts to draw as little attention to himself as possible; the many layers forced upon him each morning combined with the sticky warmth of a rare heat wave cause him to pluck at his sleeves in distaste, sure that the fabric is all but melding with the skin beneath.Collapse )

If the capslock didn't inform you, yeah, after meaning to do it for over a year I finally got around to doing the voice meme! I've posted it over here on tumblr, so if you're curious about what I sound like or what my accent's like, feel free to go over there and have a look! ^^ 

I'll be interested to hear if I sounded anything like you may have though I'd sound? 

Anyway I did cheat a little, since I missed out the last four questions but that was more due to the fact that I remembered a few things I need to get done before my sister gets home from work, so I'm just going to go and get that all done now XD

Enjoy, and don't laugh too much ^^'

A quick bit of shameless promotion for FiveSentenceAngst over on tumblr; as the title suggests, it’s a blog dedicated to five sentence long drabbles of angsty goodness to submitted prompts, written by myself and RevolutionJack.

I'll be writing for the following fandoms:
Ace Attorney, Durarara!!, Hetalia, Kingdom Hearts, Kuroko no Basket, Kuroshitsuji, Merlin, No. 6, Ookiku Furikabutte, Tiger & Bunny and Tortall.
Then again, if you want to prompt another fandom (if you've seen something in the tags of my delicious page that you want fic for, or just something else on the list shoot us a message and we'll see what we can do ^^b I've just listed the fandoms I'm most comfortable/confident with but I don't mind giving others a go if I know of them :3b)

RevolutionJack's fandoms are:
Doctor Who, Firefly, Good Omens, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Marvel’s The Avengers, Sherlock, Supernatural, Torchwood, Tortall, and X-Men (movieverse).

Again, if there's something you'd like to prompt us for that isn't on either of those lists feel free to send us a message anyway and we'll see what we can do for you ^^b

We've got some example drabbles on queue and have also now had our first prompts so check it out if you feel so inclined~ ^^ I'm really looking forward to the opportunity to fill some more prompts! =D

On another note, between the moving to Birmingham and jobhunting, I am getting a bit of writing done (finally!) so there is some progress being made~! ^^ It's just a little slow going is all. YWriter is awesome, if a little distracting... I discovered the, uh, feature that reads out what you've written aloud which kept me amused yesterday when I possibly should have been writing. Eheh.
Oh also, Euro 2012! It's a bit of a jumble of emotion since we don't actually want England to win this time haha~ Stupid John Terry and stupid Hodgeson orz
