I approved the relationship on a Madness ficlet and then totally forgot about it! Here 'tis:

Know Your Destination (Songuisendus Anuncemise Remix) (100 words) by Anonymous
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Mulan (1998)
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Original Female Character(s)
Additional Tags: Future Fic, Angst, Drabble, Character Study, Remix
Summary:

Mulan and Shang's daughter is on a crossroad of her life, and relies on her memory to find her path in life.



Yep, it's a real drabble! I would have liked to see more of the OC, so maybe when authors are revealed I'll find who she belongs to and hopefully she shows up in more of their fic.

My muses have deserted me as of late, so I haven't done any writing. Which sucks, because the [community profile] fandomgiftbox entries close tonight. I'm one of the needy participants, but Zal (phidari on ao3) is also one (Pokemon Sun & Moon commercials, Jem & The Holograms, Kamen Rider Ghost, Kamen Rider W, Lunar, Fairune/Fairune 2, and Stephen Universe). I'm fine with not getting any gifts (my requests were kind of on the spare side, just fandom, characters, and a 1-2 word prompt), but apparently it will not open until everybody has two. Had I known that, I would have not DNW'd generic greetings! I did request Doctor Who with Tegan figuring that someone or two could fill it, but the rest of my fandoms are apparently a bit unfamiliar - Fantasy Life (Damien/PC, Roque, Olivia), Kamen Rider Blade (Nozomi,Shima), Sekirei (Yukari/Shiina, Kusano), Starman (TV) (Scott, Jenny), The Tomorrow People (1990s) (Lisa), and Zero / Project Zero / Fatal Frame (series) (Sae, Miku, Mafuyu).

ETA: I'm off the needy giftboxes list!

(And I am in the midst of a birthday ficlet, but I've not been having a great two weeks - it's coming, though!)

ETA: My writer for Remix Revival replied, and I'm pretty darn sure that I'm not going to be surprised at the reveals. I wrote in both Revival and Madness, and hopefully my Revival remixee won't be too surprised either. My Madness recipient probably will be, since we do match a fandom but not the one I remixed.

All of my fandoms finally got approved! One of them must have caused a bit of a headache because it just got approved sometime in the last 12 hours.

Final Fantasy XIV: Dad of Light, Fantasy Life, Rune Factory 4 )

Stuff I didn't nominate this year but I might mention anyway )
Remix Revival has opened for reading, and my remixer did this:

A Bright Girdle Furled (Skip to 46 Remix) (1297 words) by Anonymous
Chapters: 1/1
Fandom: Kamen Rider Drive
Rating: General Audiences
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Characters: Shijima Kiriko, Banno Tenjuurou, Shijima Gou, Chase | Mashin Chaser, Heart Roidmude, Brain Roidmude, Medic Roidmude
Additional Tags: Alternate Universe - Canon Divergence
Summary:

Kiriko faces her father a final time.

(Very AU.)



I'd figured, after some present-shaking, that either "An Apparition Not Looking Up", (where Kiriko does a certain thing instead of Gou in episode 46, and things do not happen to Chase Spoiler )) or "Taking Up A Tape" (partly-robotized Kiriko and Gou are kidnapped by a well-meaning Heart as children) were the most likely to be remixed. I was partially right - my remixer actually remixed "A Bright Girdle Furled", which shares a few things in common with "An Apparition Not Looking Up", but is about Kiriko successfully transforming into Drive. ("Girdle" was written as part of my yearly June ficspam, and I still had "Apparition" on the brain when I wrote it.)

So, this remix is set during episode 46 (where "Apparition" is set), but Kiriko is Drive and they've presumably taken care of another fight Spoiler ) in the same episode. Obviously, in this universe characters who did not survive in canon survive (more or less) in this timeline, and some family relationships are established that weren't in the original one. I suspect I know who wrote this, so I don't think I'll be surprised when reveals come, but it's always lovely to see their writing. Hopefully they'll write more in this universe!

On the writing end, I did post my remix barely on time and I think my remixee liked it? I think they'll also be able to figure out it's me if they look closely as we do share a fandom or two. I did have to do quite a bit of canon review for the character voices which delayed the remix.

I'm working on two fics for the moment and hope to get to a third. I've got one for Remix Madness that I'm trying to post on time, a second I'm kind of stuck on (hi Jade, please cooperate, I know I'm old enough to be your mum but I would like to write this), and I'm trying to get at least something out for Fandom Giftbox. And I need to make a final editing pass on a certain something.

Happy birthday to [personal profile] tptigger, my partner in writing!

Sorry for the belatedness! RL threw me for a loop the last few days. I have a fic coming that I will post when RL stops throwing me curveballs.

(Also, I will finally finish doing my critique on you-know-what this month so that we can get it up, sorry!)
