Allaine is ending his web radio show, Femslash 4 Fans, and I've been invited to be on one of the last of episodes. I'm sad to see it ending but I'm happy he asked me to be a part of it. If you want to listen to me babble the show starts at 10 pm EST Thursday, June 20th, and I'll be on at 10:45 pm.

Here's the official blurb:

Now that F4F has not only marked its fourth anniversary of being on the air, but also entered its final month of broadcasting, we’ll be spending all of June celebrating that which made this program great. Don’t worry, no self-congratulation here, of course I’m talking about the guests. For each show in June, we’ll have on four (and occasionally five) guests who made at least one prior appearance to talk about what they’ve been up to since then. Maybe they’ve continued to write fanfic for the same television show. Maybe they’ve moved onto something new, and moved again. Maybe it’s original fiction now. Or maybe they’ve stopped writing altogether. We’ll also be returning to the show’s roots by hosting shows weekly instead of biweekly, so that’s sixteen former guests, each speaking for fifteen minutes at a time. Tonight we’ll begin with Grdnofevrything (who first appeared on F4F on 7/2/2009) at 10 PM EST, followed by Kim Pritekel (6/14/10) at 10:15, Inspector Boxer (9/3/09) at 10:30, and Dreiser (6/25/09) at 10:45 PM. Tune in, because really, someone just might be talking about whatever thing you love best.

As for what I'll be talking about...  )

I've plotted out an alternate universe crossover fic where after the events at Ohtori, Juri enrolls at Lillian as a second year and immediately catches Youko's attention. It's basically what if you take out Sachiko and dropped Juri into her place. And yes, it would involve Juri/Yumi. I just really love the idea of this (not because I dislike Sachiko) because the reasons Youko took in Sachiko would be tenfold with Juri plus... I love the idea of Juri being around such good people.

I totally put her and Rei as BFF's and for Sei to far prefer teasing Juri over Yumi just because it riles up Yumi to no end. Of course, Sei and Juri have to bond over their various Shiori woes. I'll hopefully start writing it out soon. It will be a fluff fest.

Yumi's pigtails are very disturbing on a real girl. I'm unsure how I feel about everyone else. Sei and Rei are very cute though. I hope at some point someone will subtitle it.



ETA: At [livejournal.com profile] oneiric22's suggestion here is the visual proof of how disturbing I find live action Yumi's pigtails. Yessss, I find it this wrong. Also I get bored easily and play with Photoshop.

DISCLAIMER: I own nothing but my belief Maria-sama is the most romantic anime in existence.
AUTHOR'S NOTE: This is a rewrite from my original story, which I'm now not at all fond of. I don't expect this one to go on too terribly long. Maybe fifteen chapters at the most.

This is suspiciously responsible of you, Rosa Gigantea )

Wayyyyy back in the day I started an alternate universe fanfic for Maria-sama ga Miteru suggested by Sean Gaffney based around the premise of what would happen if Yumi had been Sei's petite soeur. I liked the idea but I tend to have a short attention span (of a gnat some would say) and I never finished it.

Looking back on it, I love the premise but I dislike the execution I used. Basically using canon storylines and flipping it around so it's Sei and Yumi. Like the whole thing with Tsutako taking the picture and using a secondary storyline involving the bet for Sachiko to find a petite soeur, which involves Shimako this time. Also, as much as I do super love Sei and Yumi I love them more as friends than romantic partners. I prefer Sachiko/Yumi and Sei/Youko.

Anyway! I started rewriting and plotting out the fic again, flipping things up. I'm still using canon plot events but I'm not really focusing on retelling canon exactly how it is but with the soeurs changed around if that makes any sense. I mean, all the school festivals and the card hunt and elections will happen but I'm not going to tell the stories of how they happen in the same way as it happens on the show.

I find the new version I have in mind way more interesting because it sets up Sachiko and Yumi for romance again but they're more on equal footing since they're boutons then Roses together rather than being grande and petite soeurs so Sachiko comes from a different place with Yumi. Also, by setting up Sei/Youko it goes with a whole White Rose and Red Rose family falling in love with each other sort of joke. Plus Sei and Yumi being so close as soeurs that they like to irritate their perspective partners by being flirty with one another. Or rather that's more Sei being flirty and Yumi putting up with it because it's her onee-sama and she secretly enjoys Sachiko's jealousy.

Mostly I just love the idea of Sei and Yumi being soeurs because I think Sei would instill a lot of confidence in Yumi and Yumi would make Sei so happy in a lot of ways. As for Sachiko and Shimako as soeurs, Shimako is like mellowing to the extreme and Sachiko is so fierce about people she cares for there's no way that Shimako would feel like an outsider about her Buddhist background after Sachiko heard about it.

According to the Animesuki grapevine there will be more novels from Oyuki Konno for Maria-sama ga Miteru dealing with the final year of high school for Yumi, Yoshino, and Shimako. I'm super excited about this because it opens up the possibility of seeing it animated and honestly, since [livejournal.com profile] oneiric22 first showed the series to me I've really wanted to see Yumi as Rosa Chinensis. Nothing has pleased me as much about this series as seeing Yumi mature into a more confident character and it makes me super happy to see how popular she is with the other students so I really can't wait to see her take on the role of Rosa Chinensis. I dunno why but I just get really happy to think that Yumi is a school idol. It's just so awesome considering where she started off.

And getting to see her and Touko interact as soeurs? Oh, I fangirl squee to see that as I love love love those two together. I'd also love to see all the stuff from the novels thus far dealing with Yoshino and Nana. Plus Shimako and Noriko can never get enough love. The last season was fantastic because I adore Touko and it was very Touko and Yumi focused but the other Rose families got a little neglected. It would be great to see them get more attention. But in the meantime, more novels, Yumi as Rosa Chinensis! Yoshino as Rosa Foetida! Shimako as Rosa Gigantea again! lol. Those three will rock so hard as the leaders of the Yamayurikai. I can't wait.

I just got done playing with Wii Fit for the second time today and I was amused when I started it up the little Wii Fit character they have who helps you out reminded me how late it was, asked if I was about to go to bed, and if I wanted to tips on how to improve poor sleeping habits. Oh, Wii Fit, are you a psychic awesome game or what? How did you know I'm a horrid insomniac? lol. Totally weird.
