doramathon [take two]: the second asian fandoms comment ficathon

i disclaim all responsibility. blame alex and eleonore for their insidious incepting prowess.

f6



WHAT HAPPENS HERE:


01. Fic. But no, really.

02. This ficathon is open to all Asian fandoms, which means prompts for K-pop, J-pop and whatever you may wish, are also allowed apart from the K-Dramas, J-Dramas, T-Dramas etc.
Crossover with western shows, if that gets you going (actually, now there's an idea.) Spam prompts for Indian soaps if you so want, 20-year-leaps and all. It's all cool.

03. One prompt per comment please.

04. Prompt as much as you want. It is a truth universally acknowledged that if it exists, people want fic for it.

05. While this is primarily a ficathon, we're all sasaeng fans
here for the Asia love, so in THIS thread convert people to your fan-religion feel free to post any other items of interest; videos, interviews, gifs, lists of Totally Objective Reasons why your particular show/ship/group is Totally Objectively The Best, your biases doing the most adorkably embarrassing gwiyomi. Why people who haven't watched your favorite drama have only existed and not lived till now. Idol worship with impunity \o/

06. Social mores and morality has no place in this degenerate bar. Anything goes. Any and all ship/kinks allowed; RPF, slash, gen, het, incest, whatever floats your boat. LOVE IS LOVE ETC.

07. Please add all filled prompts to the thread that very originally says
Filled Prompts below. Try and follow the order as such: name-fandom-ship-rating-prompt.

08. If you know of an existing fic that seems to fit a prompt, feel free to rec it here to the prompter concerned.

09. If you so desire, pimp this on your journals, using the link below for the html code :D

10. If you are proficient in banner making/graphics/just want to show your bias has a face, you can post other banners here or just use your own.

11. Write! Write! Write! These fandoms are ridiculously lacking in fic, which is the dictionary definition of travesty. Honestly, it doesn't matter even if just five or six people participate, it's just fun to add to fandom!


More prompts = more prompts to choose from = more writers interested = more fic . /this post requires mathematical expertise y'all.

FIC:

all your perfectly delivered lies | rpf | deepika/ranbir
the fact is: the person who is more in love, loses.

the thirty-eighth parallel | heirs | eunsang/youngdo
she cuts her hair in winter; he hadn't even realized he was still looking.

you must atone some | boys over flowers | ji hoo/jan di
geum jan di. she's resilient. like grass. like a weed. that's a bad analogy, that's a common analogy.

tainting purity is unforgivable | rpf | deepika/ranbir
you can tell stories about me to your kids, when you want them to know about the wrong people to love.

wolf in sheep's clothing | no such thing as nice guys | han jae hee
oh man the best is when a dude is like "you're not wife material." fucking good. i want to be totalitarian dictator material; blood sucking life ruiner material; fucking bulletproof immortal drug lord material. not your fucking wife material.
all you touch and all you see.

[fic] warsan shire's poetry for women who are difficult to love

What is this, why is this, the non-linearity is out of control etc. But written for fluffyfrolicker's it's a love story goddamnit; a ficathon for stainofmylove's prompt.[Go prompt, like, RIGHT NOW]. I apologize, why am I writing when I am blocked, further etcs. okay, now I'm done. Read this as you like; in the order it's written, the linear sequence of events or the reverse sequence of events.

WAIT, ALSO. People who are clearly more awesome than the world demands have written me fic which you (and I) need to read asap, so bye:

theviolonist: everything you love will burn up in the light: klaus/caroline.
badboy_fangirl: because. veronica mars. veronica/logan.
lynzie914: swallow me whole. caroline. caroline/ensemble.
jada_jasmine: and we keep doing it. harry/hermione.

It ends, of course, eventually, that seems to be the general course of things— summer, in reverse.

[fic] pour a little salt, we were never here

lol, bcz why not. I wrote this for Emma ages ago and never got on with not-comment-posting it. I want to write a whole post on 9E2O and best friends romances done absolutely right and why nothing did and will ever again compare for me (because i am now dead inside). In the meanwhile, JKR can continue trolling (it is also amusing that about fifteen different people from rl and fandom had sent me the link to the interview when i woke up, never change). This is also my first post of the year, so, hello (o...o...o...) and happy...february? i love you?

(but the most hilar has to be people everywhere today just accusing each other of wanting xyz endgame because they're most attracted to that character/just want to self-insert/fantasy wish-fulfill. and it's like. um. did you just...not get to the part where jkr said that's exactly what she did? clearly it's just as legit a thing to want as anything else. sit down, fandom.)

my thread


So I am the worst. I disappear for ages and am a terrible LJ friend, and then come back demanding to be adored. I always have an intense need to be loved during exams. I also have an intense need for junk food. And for exams to not be a thing. Or to actually know something in the syllabus. Exams are dementors, basically, I see it now. That must have been the metaphorical real-world correlation in JKR's head. Which is why the book that largely deals with dementors also involves Hermione going back in time to take a bunch of courses and exams. I am smarter now than when I left, see.

u can love me if u want. u can also write me fic instead, i am not picky.

(I did this once before and this time is all horatios's fault. she is the worst and never does this herself but compels everyone to do it and we must get her into the mainstream, so I went back to see that thread and it basically goes like: ACCESS DENIED. WELL.)

And, I'm going to do the Emma thing, so these are the threads of everyone on my flist in alphabetical order and you should love them because I do and u know my taste is gr8 okay.

Also, randomly, Pretty Man/Beautiful Man/Bel Ami is everything; how did a comic-book based show advertised as being about the most beautiful guy in the world needing to seduce ten of the top ten (?) women for unknown reasons which I was only planning on watching because Jang Geun Seok, turn out to be so interesting on gender and gender reversals and social image formation?? IT MAKES NO SENSE, WORLD.

ALSO IU'S CHARACTER IS THE LOVE OF MY LIFE. I adore her because she's manic pixie dream girl-esque, but also not, and it is delightful. I feel like this drama takes on so many casual trope and reverses them subtly. Like your heroine is pure as driven snow and has never had a boyfriend etc. etc., but is also the most sexually frustrated creature in the history of sexual frustration?? She goes to the market and gets turned on by the sight of naked chicken pieces, hahaha. And she spends practically all her time turning things said and seen into innuendos and dirty thoughts, it's beautiful, really.


Besides which it's women secretly running the world and interacting with each other on equal levels and loving money even more than the men they actually truly love and expertly manipulating people and Jang Geun Seok's Dokko Ma Te being first and foremost a social woman and this is the show I've heard being described around as a lighthearted, fun watch that you should just see with your brain turned off and I'm like *headdesk*

in conclusion,
here to get it back from you

The K-Drama Meta.

I HAVE EXAMS ON IN A FEW, WOULD YOU BELIEVE. PRAYER CIRCLE FOR MY CONTINUED ACADEMIC EXISTENCE. And in the meanwhile, I don't even believe this myself.

Female (Second) Leads: Narratives vs. Tropes:
[In Defence Of] Coffee House.


When do I suggest reading this:

- If you're not planning on watching Coffee House , because you should. I think it's best to go into it blind tbh.
- You're planning on watching Coffee House and you don't like kdrama tropes being messed around with (because that way it's better to know.)
- Never. It's 4700 words of drama fanwank which includes everything from Boys Over Flowers to The Heirs, why would you even.

xx

So here is a post about something that no one will care about except me (I'm not even sure anyone I know has seen it, BUT IT'S MY JOURNAL, I'LL POST IF I WANT TO ETC.), but I have exams in a week and I need to be freaking done with this line of thought because I am obsessing over it and I am an obsessively obsessive person who can't function otherwise.

So. I watched Coffee House and I fucking loved it. Let me reiterate that; loved it. It is well written, fantastically acted for the most part, genuinely funny, gorgeously angsty in the right moments and it has, what I've decided is one of my favorite female characters of all times. Not that it doesn't have many faults, because it does. So, the bottom line is: yeah, I personally adored it. And then I went on the internetz and it turns out that lots of people disliked it? (Although,tbf,  I think a significant more portion of people watching liked/looooooved it, but if you check out a random site about the show, a majority of the people will be like "wtf?") At first, I was legit flabbergasted, how could there possibly be a person who doesn't like the show? Or specifically, how could there be a person who doesn't like the show for the reasons that they've cited? aka my favorite parts were the ones that did not appeal to them, which made me O______o

But post-comment-reading, I was basically: of course they didn't like it.

Collapse )

Also, Eun-young is now one of my favorite female characters ever. And this is when I knew I was completely sold on her (not particularly spoilery- unless you think it spoils her character??- besides perfect, so outside the cut, but you can skip it if you don't want to be spoiled at all):


Eun-young: I'd like to stay [at the hospital] a little longer then. You've never looked after me like this before. I've figured it out now, writer Lee Jin-soo has two weaknesses: tears and sickness. If I'd known this, I'd have cried and been sick a whole lot more. But I've never been familiar with this sort of stuff, which is why you've never treated me as you are now.

Jin-soo: You shouldn't cry or be sick. What is the point of receiving care like this from me?

Eun-young: What is the point?

Jin-soo: If you were like that you wouldn't have your unique, cool charm. That cool charm is Seo Eun-young's strong suit. If you spent each day weak or ill, you'd have lost your charm.

Eun-young: Is that so?

Jin-soo: It is.

Eun-young: So, in order to retain my charm...I have to pretend to be strong when I'm ill, and hold it in when I feel like crying? What is that supposed to mean? I feel aggrieved.

Jin-soo: What?

Eun-young: I've got to hold onto this concept of being cool to maintain my image. Life seems unfair.


This was all playful banter mostly, and EY being petulant because she's bedridden (although PSY's disgruntled expressions in this were amazing) BUT HAS THERE EVER BEEN A BETTER ARGUMENT MADE AGAINST STRONG FEMALE CHARACTERS (TM)? BECAUSE I HAVE YET TO SEE ONE. Damn, I just adore the hell out of her.

I'm afraid to even check to see how many words this is. It's 4700 plus words. BUT AT LEAST IT'S OUT OF MY SYSTEM? THAT'S A GOOD THING, RIGHT? Wish me luck for my exams. Plz. Or not, it's k. I'm pretty sure even god doesn't want me now but Darla does.

ETA: Kim Woo Bin Face Day tomorrow. Bring it.

FIC:

been a fool for lesser things | shut up! flower boy band | hyunsoo/yaerim
when I close my eyes it's like you're really next to me.

this is how you make meaning | reply 1997 | joon hee/yoon jae (/shi won)
there's a ghost in my lungs... it walks with my legs to fall, to fall, to fall at your feet.

do not choose sides yet | shut up! flower boy band | woo kyung (/ji hyuk /do il)
you are a princess or you aren’t. you are pure at heart or you aren’t.

we have not touched the stars | reply 1997/shut up! flower boy band | joonhee/hyunsoo
there's a new boy in Joonhee's class, a boy like a live wire.

whispers of the spinner | shut up! flower boy band | woo kyung (/do il)
you are a princess or you aren’t. you are pure at heart or you aren’t.

with urgency but not with haste | shut up! flower boy band | hyunsoo/yerim/suah/jihyuk
Lee Hyunsoo lives with three ridiculous people, and all of them cause him endless consternation.
you who never arrived.

greta garbo didn't think you worthy.

Poco is hosting the third session of the delightful Unusual Opinions Amnesty Post a.k.a. the one where you get to say unpopular fandom things and don't get lynched or meta-ed down or told that your opinions are the wrongest opinion that ever wronged and you should go take recluse under the ocean with the phytoplankton because you are a miserable excuse for a human being i.e. the general fandom thing. GO AND FEEL INCLUDED, GUYS.

So, I stick to negative space and crops and never venture out of that comfort zone, especially because of the no-editing-software thing, but I had this sudden urge for color and pseudo-complex icons, so I used TWO online editors and you get a criminal overuse of texture. And I'm posting this because I've wasted enough time on it and if I don't post it, I'll probably spend all of tomorrow doing this as well. THESE TOOK SO LONG, I AM GOING TO DO THE COMFORT ZONE THING NOW. Also, I saw the first episode of Dream High (and then was forced to stop because my cousin closed my tabs and my internet speed is dismal at the moment) and am watching Shut Up Flower Boy Band (on episode 8, bitches. I like EVERYONE. I even like the antagonist till now because he's hot. Myungsoo is the cutest. I want to pet him and possibly make-out with him what). I haven't seen any western show in over a month. Korea, what are you doing to me? ANYHOW, I hope these work for someone, although omg, it just struck me why am I making icons when LJ is so dead :s

[fic] calculus of a single variable

for spuffy_noelle, the closest I get to a non-angsty fic. :D I can't believe I wrote this four days after that monster. There is no hope for me.

ETA: the movie shooting starts today, oh my god.

When I write a story, what do readers immediately look for?


It could be structurally, narrativistically (whaddya mean that's not a word?) or thematically or pretty much anything. Enable me, someone? Anyone? Bueller?

Also, also xx_pinkstar is watching Veronica Mars and my excitement cannot be contained. That also reminded me that I so badly want to write Duncan/Veronica/Logan early S2/post S1 fic, because I've always wanted to explore those three just sitting around and being snarky and dysfunctional and brOT3 and madly in love with Lilly. AND I've always wanted to explore a pre-series fab four dynamic, but man, that is dictionary definition terrifying.

Also omg@LJ being so dead. I feel like this entire post should be in caps like a flare light on an island, HELLO, ANYBODY HERE. But what if it just echoes back. I think too much about things.
