Also since I'm out of whack I'm ditching the days.
( #5: Prompt Chosen: Is it You? )
One of the bigger challenges of these drabbles is trying to keep them varied and mixed up. So many of these prompts have angst potential due to obvious things. The problem though is that if I do too much angsty endgame stuff it'll just get repetitive. So. Unusual interpretations are a go? I dunno.
This story is partially my attempt to detangle that cutscene that NOBODY UNDERSTANDS. Seriously what the hell even happened... Also there is a tiny inside shipping joke/nod if you know me really well. If you can spot it you win internet cookies. It's not an obvious/well-known ship, I'll give you that much of a hint.
( Day 4 (technically) - Prompt Chosen: Lost )
Today's story is probably going to be one of my more unusual ones. It includes some of my theories on and behind certain events in the KH3D Special Trailer. If you haven't seen the special trailer and don't want to be spoiled for it, then you should consider skipping this story. They aren't blatant but they're there. There also might be stealth spoilers for re:coded.
( Day 3 - Prompt Chosen: Sky Blue )
( Day 2: Prompt Chosen - Zinnia; Thoughts of friends )
I should probably get a writing account or comm at some point... oh well.
Not sure if I'll get one up today. If I do, I'll edit this post. |D
Back to your regularly scheduled lives, fellow passengers of Spaceship Earth.
( Day 1 - Prompt chosen: Tears )
This one is of the latter variety, inspired by the trailer yesterday.
( Spoilers for Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, and stealth spoilers for some of the others. )
May eventually do something with it, though probably not much more than an extension of the current conversation.
I have figured out some new details though, and got some inspiration for a later excerpt, mainly around Tower of Rem and its aftermath.

( Cut for aaaaaangst )
ftr, this is still in the process of being written and I will be adding to it.
Anyway hi again! I am Gorse, a.k.a. Kristen. I am a college sophomore trying to get a major in animation so I can go make movies and the like. Major fandom at the moment is Tales of the Abyss, so I'll probably end up talking about it a lot on here, though I do like other things, like Pokemon Mystery Dungeon, Harvest Moon, Disney/Pixar, Golden Sun, Mana Khemia, Tamora Pierce and etc. I currently roleplay at three games - luceti, paradisa, and riftedguilds, the latter of which I help mod. And... that should do for Gorsie CliffNotes. HI and welcome again!
Anyway. Onto the other part of this journal entry: So I had an Abyss AU plotbunny a couple weeks ago, which has tentatively been named Instability. The idea is fairly simple: After Akzeriuth, the party is lucky as hell that Luke didn't have severe, severe trust issues - the person he trusted most in the world utterly betrayed him, and most of the others were hiding/keeping secrets that in theory could have possibly helped prevent it from happening (i.e. Luke being a replica). So what if he had those issues? How would that have affected the character relationships, party dynamic, and progression of events?
The inspiration for this idea has been very hit-or-miss since it's started, so I'm probably not going to actively pursue making it into a fully-fledged story with full continuity, unless something changes, but here's all the excerpts that I've written so far:
( The first major divergence )
( Continuity Changes + Unexpected Reunions )
( Peony is an awesome emporer )
And that's it for now!
Fandom: Tales of the Abyss (AU)
Word Count: 1,768
Summary: Sometimes, the things Luke had to give up for the sake of the world were beyond cruel.
Spoilers for after the Tower of Rem, some LukexTear shippyness, but not too severe.

Sorry I've been AWOL so long. Chapter 2 of Reaction's hit a bit of a roadblock when I realized I really needed to plan out where I'm going with it more. I mean, I have a general idea for the "Myth Arc", but almost none of the specifics. In a fic where a decent amount of the cast (including most of the antagonists) are going to have to be new characters, this is a serious problem. So Reaction's been put on semi-hiatus while I work on getting a lot of details ironed out.
Seriously though, if you like Reaction, feel free to talk to me about it. REALLY. Discussion is muse food. Good discussion is like a delicious, nutritious three-course meal.Another roadblock for Reaction's progress has been Dimension Shift.
Dimension Shift is... ... ... it's... a self insert.
( Non-judgemental types can click here for more info. XP )
Also, bit of ranting here, for DeviantArt because I really don't want to look like an ungrateful idiot on the site itself but I gotta vent about this somewhere.
( Cue whining under the cut. )
Also, one last grumble.
I hate horror. So having to watch a horror film for my class's exam is not sitting well with me right now. :|
Yep.... that's all from this corner of... whatever you call here.
Hopefully this means that my enthusiasm will be renewed and I can finally power through the rest of Chapter 1. For now, though, I'm going to sleep. It's too late and too dark to do anything.
So... without further ado... the prologue to "Reaction"
Please feel free to comment. Discussion and commentary are muse food.
( It was a moment that seemed to be trapped in time... )
Tales of the Abyss Full-Game Spoilers abound.
"Reaction" is a multi-chapter, post-game AU fanfic of Namco's "Tales of the Abyss", based on the (not too unpopular) idea that both Asch and Luke survived. It takes place five years after the game's epilogue, or seven years after the fall of Eldrant. A lot of things have changed, and a lot of progress has been made in Auldrant in that time, both on a grand (i.e. the reformation of the Order of Lorelei) and personal (i.e. Asch and Luke are actually getting along now) levels. But not everything's so happy and simple. The world is on the edge of another mass of sweeping conflict, and whether that conflict will help solidify the new future Luke, Asch and the others have won, or overwrite it entirely depends entirely on the outcome.
Oh, and to add to it all, as part of the strange circumstances that allowed both Luke and Asch to come back alive, Van is now back too. And since we're past the end of the seventh Fonstone, he now has undeniable proof that the Score is gone, with the original world still intact. So what he's going to do is anybody's guess.
Fun times, eh?
Characters: Just about everybody who was alive at the end of the game + Luke, Asch and Van, some new characters, and a hell of a lot of replicas (who are also new characters).
Pairings: LukexTear, AschxNatalia, some pairings still undecided
Anyway, so... that's it. Basic overview done. And now I'll probably end up posting background info and the like, somewhere in the near future.
