Every year, starting back in 2003 I’ve tried to post a new Gundam Wing fic for Halloween. Most of the time I just take a classic story that has been retold many times and put my own GW twist on it, and on occasion I’ll take something I wrote years ago a post it for Halloween. This year however I can’t think of anything to write.

My mindset is firmly stuck on Thanksgiving as I’m trying to complete part 7 of my Holiday Arc, and the chapter I’m currently on for Afterthought is set at Christmas, I’m sure I can knock out a Halloween story for this year if I had a little inspiration.

Anyone have some ideas?

Have you ever come across something so old you had completely forgotten about it? Well that’s what happened to me today. I decided to hunt down all my old as dirt Halloween drabble things and post them on Ao3 as an effort to get my Halloween creative juices flowing (it hasn’t worked yet).

While moving things about I stumbled upon my old mediaminer account, my first account with my first fics on it (from 2003). Holy God that was some embarrassingly shitty writing right there. It’s no wonder I blocked it out. And though I am tempted to rewrite one or two of them, I’m debating on whether to leave them lost or move them all to Ao3 For the Sake of Posterity or something like that.

My Gundam Wing fanfiction archive list is available online. It's just the list, there are no actual fan fics posted there. Also this is not the fully updated list, it's the one from before GWA went down. I should lave the completed list up in a week or so.

Back in April when I was in the middle of my archiving project I came across an old story by one of my favorite fic authors. Yesterday I tried to add the story to my Kindle so I could read using Calibre, it ran for 7 hours it but it wouldn't convert. I tried again, letting it run all night, no progress.

I tried uploading it online and converting it that way, still no luck. It certainly wasn't the biggest story I've converted, and as I almost always save the stories as text docs I decided to open it with Word and see if it there was something else going on.

Word crashed because of all the typos and mistakes.

It took me 4 and a half hours to go in and remove all the triple spacing, the 'two words stuck together' like 'alot' 'eachother' 'infront' and remove all the spaces between the quotation marks and the words. Fun stuff. After all the editing I tried converting it again. It took 37 seconds. Wee. The things I do for my fandom.

I did keep a copy of the story in its original form in my archive because that is how the author posted it. I wouldn't dare mess with someone else's work permanently without their permission, but at least it will load on my Kindle now.

I was cleaning up some folders on my desktop computer looking for a fanfic I knew I had started but couldn't find on my laptop, which is where I do most of my writing. I found the story and 14 others that I kind of forgot I had been writing, some dated all the way back to 2003. (oops) Add those to the ones that I'm actually, currently writing and that's over 20 stories. I really need to finish up and post some of these fics.

I'll get back to posting a Fic a Day when I can get a few hours to set up another set of recs. I usually set them up all nicely formatted with links and everything in a text document a month or two in advance (some 30-60 recs), so everyday all I needed to do is cut and paste, voilà all done! It only takes a few seconds a day to post, but work went crazy and I have No time to set up my list. I hope to get things going again within the next week.

it makes me laugh, especially the bit between Quatre and Wufei in the parking lot.
