Waha!!! I wrote song parodies!!! Know how I said I was feeling the urge to write a songfic? Well, instead I wrote these. And they’re not just any song parodies……… they’re RK-centric song parodies. They’re here if you want to read them. There are five so far, and the best one is Meiji Pie, which when it was finished jumped up to join Questforgloraffirmation as my favorite song parody I’ve ever written. And…. hmm….. those are both somewhat similar in subject matter….. maybe I’m onto something here. The problem with song parodies, though, is that people mostly (at least with my parodies) have to be familiar with the original song. Then narrow it down even farther with the subject matter, and you get a target audience that is not only quite conversant with the characters and events of Rurouni Kenshin but also knows all the songs I’ve parodied. The end result is that I don’t get many readers. But, oh, well. I’m trying to start the song-parody trend among RK fans, and the only way to do that is just to write them and put them up.
I also wrote a one-shot slash drama. I don’t write many one-shots, since they require romance to develop too fast unless you say that the characters have actually wanted each other for a long time. Which is annoying, since I’d rather describe all their turmoil up until that point. But anyway, I wrote a one-shot, and it’s a Saitou-Kenshin. It jumped on me and bit me in the middle of the night and forced me to get out of bed and write most of it right then. It’s an OK story. The dream sequence is pretty good, anyway.
I’m going to do my laundry one of these days, I swear. One of these days………….. I actually have some quarters now……………. I won some money in a bet at work yesterday, and although I spent most of it on donuts, I have some left. I traded that for quarters, and collected all the change I could find, and can now conceivably do my laundry — if I can actually get around to going down there.
Hmmmmm…. I wonder if there are any of those donuts left………
*jumps, dances* There are! There are!! There are two left!!!! *eats*
Now I want Fresca, but I don’t have any left. I’ll just steal one of Lydea-chan’s Pepsi’s. Gome, Lydea-chan……. you did say I could have one the other day *grovels* I’ll buy you a new one if you want. What I really like to drink with Krispy Kremes is whole milk, but there’s nothing like that around here.
I love Tomoe!
That’s all I have to say for now. BLEAA
