I got my new drawing tablet today.  I've been having fun with it.  I've not finished anything else yet, but here is the first thing I drew with it, after doodling scribbles for the first half hour as I worked out how it worked.

I am proud of this picture. 

It's on Tumblr, if anyone is interested in reblogging it. You can find it here.

Mokona no Yume / Related Car Names
« on: January 13, 2018, 08:08:58 PM »
There are a number of characters in Rayearth. I am sure we all assume they must have pasts that include families of some description, but we don't get any of that information in canon.

When inventing families for fanfic, I am sure we all have gone through the various car lists and things. I thought it might be nice to have a thread for collecting related car names to the ones used for the characters.

Yumeiro no Tsubasa / 12 Days of Rayearth Crack
« on: December 28, 2017, 02:51:18 PM »
Down and I (well mostly Down) decided it would be fun to do a crack shipping event over the twelve days of Christmas. A time to share any prompts, headcanons, meta, fic, or art for all the nonsense pairings that don't get as much love during the year.

It's mostly on Tumblr, but we can also make a collection on AO3, if anyone is interested in sharing anything over there.

If posts on tumblr get tagged with "#12 days of rayearth crack" I'll reblog them to fuckyeahrayearth to share with the rest of the fandom.

You can also post links to your posts, or even prompts and meta directly here to share with us.

Yumeiro no Tsubasa / Grižian and Frižian
« on: December 04, 2017, 09:38:55 AM »
I have a name for the series of fics that all take place in the same universe as the fic Sanctuary that I started ages back. I am starting a new topic for the lot of them.  This post will have a regularly updated link list to both AO3 and FFN, or at least I will try to, as well as a basic reading order list.  Or you can just find them all in order on the series page on AO3.

Enchanted Teen
When Clef said he was going to ‘grow-up’, Umi wasn’t sure what she was expecting, but she definitely hadn’t anticipated how attractive he would turn out to be, or the effect it would have on her.
AO3 and FFN

Good Advice Teen
In which Umi needs advice about a boy, and Clef's not sure he should be the one giving it to her.
AO3 and FFN

Sanctuary Teen(FFN)/Adult(AO3)
When Clef somewhat accidentally invites Umi to stay at his house for a week, it's the start of changes that happen faster than either of them anticipated. Unfortunately, with the laws still in the way, the consequences of that summer may spiral far out of their control…
AO3 and FFN

If you want to discuss this fic series, feel free to add your thoughts.

Goran, Taiyou da yo / NaNoWriMo 2017
« on: October 28, 2017, 11:55:55 AM »
So..... It's that time of year again.... 

Who is planning to participate? 

What are you thinking of writing? 

What is even going on?

(For those that may not have heard of it. NaNoWriMo is National Novel Writing Month. Basically, the goal is to write a 50,000 word ROUGH DRAFT of a novel over the 30 day month of November. Which, for Americans can be a little..... complicated, as there is a big family holiday right in the final stretch. You can join other people in your area with write-ins and things on the NaNoWriMo website.)

If we are not already writing buddies, and you want to add me, I'm Sideshows & Gorillas.

I'm still undecided this year.  As I keep having Sanctuary stuck in my head, I might as well try to finish the next five chapters or something....  Who knows....

Who else is writing this year?

Mokona no Yume / A Cephiran Calendar & Character Birthdays
« on: October 27, 2017, 12:13:33 PM »
I said in chat that I would make a post about this. 

For my fic Sanctuary and other fics in that same universe I have come up with a Cephiran calendar. It’s very simple and basic, but means that I have a very good reason for the New Year festival to have been at a time the girls couldn’t attend until the year before.

Basically, I have given Cephiro a 365 day year. Though, you might technically say it is a 364 day year with a bonus day.

Weeks are still seven nights. The days translate very simply to Firstday, Secondday, Thirdday, Fourthday, Fifthday, Sixthday, and Seventhday. I haven’t decided if the reckoning is from sunrise or sunset or an arbitrary time in the middle somewhere (like midnight).

There are 13 months of 4 weeks (28 days) each.  I have yet to work out what the months are called right now. I’m guessing things having to do with the agricultural industries, perhaps. Or they could just be numbers.  We’ll see what I decide before Clef starts dropping month names in about six or seven chapters time.

The festival day part of a three day festival thing. Every thing in the country sort of stops. There are parties and celebrations all over. The biggest being the one held at the castle.


Day 1: The last day of the last month.  It is the  celebration for the end of the year, and everything that happened. There is always a big party of some sort. And at the castle, you have that year’s chronicle scroll unrolled around the great hall turned ball room with lots of dancing and celebration before it is rolled back up. There is lots of talk about the bits that people read while the chronicle was unrolled, if it was interesting.

Day 2: Is the Festival day. The festival day itself is for general revelry. It tends to be an excuse for many to cut loose and have a good time.  It is the wildest night of any of the celebrations. Lots of alcohol, lots of dancing, lots of enjoying the night and company it brings.

Day 3: The first day of the first month of the new year. It is a time for looking ahead toward the connections to be made and things to be done in the new year. This is the time when people start making plans about what they want their new year to be.  The new chronicle scroll is started and the year begins anew. It is also a time to gain a blessing or a prayer on your house and family. I haven’t worked out exactly how temples and shrines work in this cephiro, so bear with me while I work that out?

Added bonus fun of the festival day not being counted into the year or week specifically, means that the days of the week keep shifting between Earth and Cephiro.  Like for one Cephiran year Firstday may correspond with Sunday, then after the New year begins, Firstday is now on the same day as Monday on Earth. Meaning the activities everyone is doing in Cephiro shifts. 

Like if Council meetings are the first and second Sixthday of the month, then they were on Friday between March - 1st half of Nov 1996  according to my reckoning, and after the Festival (which was the first time the actual festival day fell on a Sunday while the girls were visiting) Sixthday is now Saturday, so council meetings happen then, changing Sunday visits because the week shifted, but not everyone’s work patterns did.

I didn't see a thread, but I may have missed it. 

Who here is on dreamwidth?  We now have a new community: https://magicknightrayearth.dreamwidth.org

I am also now being a bit more active too. I'm still Milieva as always: https://milieva.dreamwidth.org

Who else is on dreamwidth now?

Many of us have been in this fandom for well over a decade, and we have all had many new life experiences.  How has this affected your Rayearth headcanons and your general interaction with fandom?

Anata Ga Oshiete Kureta / Prompts and Ideas for Umi/Clef week!
« on: September 05, 2017, 08:20:29 AM »
The official prompts for 2017 are-

Habits & Routines
Caught in bed together
Because I want to see your smile
Water & Electricity
Poor Impulse Control

I personally get very little out of most one word prompts and like a full sentence of seven to run off with, so I am toying with some silly nonsense spawned from discussions related to the prompts.

I'm currently writing (and planning to write):

A Tea Shop AU: Umi owns a small tea house, and Clef is a new professor at the university who becomes a regular.

Crack Pregnancy Fic: Poor impulse control at it's finest, with magical sex changes and other nonsense. Totally canon compliant, though.

Masquerade Ball: Umi and Clef run into each other at a masquerade ball

Princess AU: Umi is a princess and Clef is the court master mage.

Prequel to Sanctuary: The first time Umi sees Clef all grown up/The first time Clef notices Umi's not quite a child anymore

Soulmate AU: Complete nonsense that Down cracked me up with.  It's going to be short, but sweet.

Other things I plan to post:

Some art!  I want to draw Umi as the Guru, and Clef possibly being happily retired in the background. There are a few other things I want to doodle too.  I should get on that at some point.

At least one Playlist.  Maybe two.  The general Umi/Clef one I currently have and the Sanctuary playlist to start.

What are others planning to work on? 

Does anyone else have any sort of fic they want to see?
