 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.

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.

So... somewhere between when I went to bed and when I woke up, I got this idea for a rather fluff-filled oneshot. Or at least fluff-y for me. Not *GASPSWOON* romanticish... but... I'm not the kind of person to go to if you're looking for that. ... Actually I think this is the first outright "romantic" fic I've actually ever written. 


As it is... it was a lot of fun to write. It's Reaction-based (roughly 2-3 months before Reaction starts), so it's post-game, so be warned of spoilers. 

Name: Kick
Characters: LukexTear (and technically a third character)
Rating: K+
Notes: FLUFF FLUFF FLUFF- Also Reaction-based, so if you haven't read at least Chapter 1, you'll probably be confused. 
Summary: Sometimes, it's the things that are actually tangible that end up being more reassuring - or at least more comforting - than words and abstract ideas. 

Story under the cut. Also an alternate summary for kicks (no pun intended).  )

... okay switching out of all caps now for readability. 

Cut for kind-of post-game spoilers for Tales of the Abyss. And also rambling.  )

... rambly Gorse is rambly.

Oh, and Chapter One of Reaction is finished, in case you didn't notice my edits to the post. Chapter Two is delayed, because I'm trying to see if I want to give some important OCs a cameo in one of the scenes. Part of the problem with that involves coming up with said OCs. WHEEE.

 Just had a massive epiphany for Reaction. One of the major plot elements that was still undecided has now been converted from loose gravel to a solid foundation. Yay for car rides where you just sit a cross-stitch and daydream all day, and ESPECIALLY yay for friends who are ready and willing to help brainstorm plot elements.

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 as it turns out, I'll be posting my fanfic up here as is... mainly so my RL friend and I can share it with each other when we're not in the same place. XD 

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... )

 Since I'm going to be talking a lot about it, and also to help get some of my thoughts down, I thought I'd give a semi-brief overview of fic and some of its background info (since there'd be a lot of it).

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?

Rating: T/PG-13
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.
