hello, my very sad few fellow heimdall/loki fans. nothing much is posted on this community, so i thought i'd poke my head in, say 'hi', and also mention that once quietisrafel is done beta-ing, i'll be posting some slashfic if you guys are interested. ^^|
Sorry about not getting around to the previous sections yet, but it hopefully shouldn't take me too long. ::goes off to do more beta-ing::
Well, I'm always up for good Heimdall/Loki slash fiction. I've been meaning to post some of my own stuff here, but I'm trying to finish a piece before I do, and real life has been, shall we say, uncooperative...x.x
*eyes* I've been waiting for your Hot Topic stuff to continue, in particular! Sry to hear about real life, though.. it does get in the way of things, doesn't it. ._.;
*whimpers* That would actually be the piece I was referring to. It's pretty much complete, but since it was written at work, it's all handwritten and has to be typed and edited. My goal is to get that done this week...but then, that was my goal last week too x.x;;;; This would be why I don't generally post unfinished works; I hate feeling like I'm disappointing people (not that I knew it was going to end up a multi-parter ^.^;;) So, very sorry for the wait! *bows* But it's really encouraging to know people still care -- I will work all the harder because of it!
Oh, and Sapphirus - that was a really cute little drabble, you should write more!
Well, I'm dying to know what happens next, so ganbatte ne? xD
I will, I will! Tomorrow night, with any luck, I'll be able to finally get started...*crosses fingers*
And Sapphirus, no kicking of self allowed! ^.~ Really, your little drabble showed a good understanding of the characters and their relationship, and it was much better written than an awful lot of the junk that's out there. No melodrama, no florid description, no drowning your readers in big words, or any of the other usual bad fanfiction plagues. There might have been a couple of tiny grammar errors, but those are things that can be fixed - having a good sense for the writing is something that can't, and I'd say you've got that. (Besides, they were so tiny I didn't even notice them the first time around ^.~) *grins* But I can't force you to believe that, any more than other people can convince me of the same ^o^ *puts on the hypocrite hat and goes to sit in the corner*
....I actually /get/ the urge of doing all the melodrama, florid description and big words, but I'm usually too impatient to let 'em all in. XD; So it's mostly first person crap that gets written.
The grammar, I would have gone over...if I'd let that sit for a week before touching it again. Just letting the thing get out of my head then go back on it and wince at this or that mistake and correct them... XD;; A silly method, but it works generally well.
And people actually can convince me to a degree. I'll grant them the aspects they pointed out, think about it and feel some pride about it. But shooting myself down is habit and I think it's a good way of not letting myself get big-headed and overconfident. I'll admit that it /is/ a nice drabble for one thing, but it's feels unfinished to me (it prolly is, I don't recall if I had anything else to add to it) and the grammar/syntax/whatever I didn't correct bother me enough that I won't think it's quite...there yet.
Araara... araara... o-o I maintain that I write crap.
XD Heck, I draw crap too! Woot! *kicks self down*
....The only thing I can /really/ contribute would be art.. ^_^; but each time I /tried/ to set them together, the boys rebel and make me draw crap. And the only written thing I have are one drabble on my lj (it's on this day
) and RPs with my fiancee-chan. The latter is rather random so I'm not....sure it's public material. Kinda a few in-jokes between she and I.
Art art art ART art art ART!
Yes please? :D
