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.

So, I have an aquarium. Since moving into our new house, I really wanted to set one up. Growing up, I had a 10 gallon tank which was home to a variety of fish, mostly goldfish. More recently, I had a betta in a desktop bowl. My grandfather used to have a large collection, and I inherited a nice (unused) 20 gallon tank which was at the new house. So I set it up, planted it out, and went through several combinations of fish. Unfortunately, my betta (and some other fish for company) didn't survive the transfer from soft to hard water, and several species attempts later I think I have a stable biome. (I have guppies, platys, ghost shrimp, and an algae eater.)



This is my setup, several months later. Let's meet the fish! (I apologize in advance for potato quality of pics)

Maintaining and watching the tank is quite soothing for me as a hobby, and I love making up little stories for its inhabitants.

VOY at 20

found this vid of a star trek: voyager 20th reunion (i'm so old) at space city comic con in houston.

and found out some things;
  • for st. patrick's day kate mulgrew would give a big party with irish food. and a bottle of whiskey to each of the main cast.
  • every male had the hots for 7 of 9
  • robert beltran never bothered to learn his lines
  • garrett wang thinks that the VOY finale should've been gut the first hour, then at the end "to be continued at a theater near you" would appear on the screen. the rest would be a big screen movie. instead of whatever crappy TNG movie we got around that time.
  • the uniforms look nice while standing, but were uncomfortable while sitting as the came up in the crotch area. it was very uncomfortable for the men.
  • the whole 7/chakotay thing happened because after the episode where 7 has a holodeck program to practice being human & chakotay is her boyfriend, beltran said something to jerri rayn like: "our characters will never kiss for real. you're boyfriend will never write it, he's too jealous." (brannon braga, writer/producer of VOY was her boyfriend at the time) after getting the script, beltran got a note from braga; "who's jealous?"
  • during the last weeks of the show all the actors got a send off with cake & a large group of people being emotional, except for kate mulgrew. they were literally dismantling the set around her. after she was done with her finale scene, someone form the dark said something like; that's a wrap. thanks for seven years kate. there was no cake or a large group to send her off. but then robert picardo appeared & said: "lets go for a drink."

that last part made me so sad. the studio didn't know what to do with a female captain half of the time and at the end she got nothing in the way of acknowledgment for all she put into the show.

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!)

One of the characters in Kamen Rider Build is surnamed Himuro, with the same kanji as the Himuro family of Fatal Frame I. Now I'm going to have to watch this just to get his background and see if I can write a crossover.
