Fanfiction. Mine. Master list. Sorted by fandom. Updated on a when-I-feel-like-it basis.

I've switched from reposting at ff.net to reposting everything I ever had at ff.net here, because dear god, the formatting.

Cut 'cause it's sorta long. )

I have the Tournament Edition and this thing is fucking gorgeous. I got a call from the lady of the house, "What is this thing? It's like a...a two foot by one foot by eight inch box; it's huge."

Oh, yes, yes it is huge.

So is this post. My god IT'S FULL OF STARS, etc. etc. )

Oh, speaking of: the gore is really dialed up this time. Bruises and scrapes and super moves that show off exactly how and where bones are shattered. In one stage, there are literally fountains of blood that the characters can stand under.

The Fatalities are sick, but by comparison are not as bad as I expected. At least, not so far.

Two of the four (!!) sections of the Krypt/Nekropolis are so nasty I can't even look. It's helpful to have a friend or relative with no sense of squeamishness nearby so you can still get all the loot. The Misery Meadow or whatever the hell that is? Plays to my slightly mean sense of humor real well, but it's probably still gross.

Yeah, basically every part of the Kryptopolis that's not the standard headstone part in the very beginning? Hella gross.

I don't know if you can turn the blood level down, because I never bother to do it. Gore has been integrated into the user menus and into certain effects in the game and mini-events and, look, basically the visual design team realized their original core audience is pushing thirty and still frustrated about their lives, and it's like they gave us a big bloody pillow to scream into. Made of guts.

Big squishy still-warm hug, guys; c'mere.

I find this powerfully cathartic, personally, but yeah. Parts of it squick me some. The Internet generation? Won't even blink.

Tl;dr it deserves that Mature rating.

OH OH OH THEY BROUGHT BACK TEST YOUR MIGHT.

THERE ARE SO MANY OPTIONS AND THE STUPID FETCH QUESTS ARE NO LONGER COMPULSORY except if you want them Fatalities, ya'll.

Oh there will be more entries, oh yes.

Today is the fifteenth anniversary of the US movie theater release of Mortal Kombat.

I remember this vividly, because it was the first Pg-13 movie I ever saw on my own, and the first movie I ever snuck into for a repeat.

That was pretty much the best summer of my life, honestly.

From [livejournal.com profile] taraljc.

Name fifteen favorite fannish pairings (het/slash/canon/fanon), and ask people if they notice any common traits/tendencies in the pairings you choose. Try to pick different fandoms.

Different fandoms? Oops. Here, have them in vague chronological order backward, including ships for fandoms I'm no longer in or only in to converse with the awesome people I met there. Also, please note that I pay no attention to the / direction.

Pairings! )

BONUS ROUND: My original pairing was and will always be Zelda/Link (The Legend of Zelda)

I still can't stand Jayne/River (Firefly).

My dearth of TV fandoms, let me show you it? Er. )

AND THE GHOSTBUSTERS GAME! IS UNCANCELLED. ATARI BOUGHT IT. IT'S TO COINCIDE WITH SONY'S "PLANS" FOR GB'S 25th.

Yes, yes that does merit capslock. It merits large deafening capslock squee, and thus, and therefore.

They've sold Midway, and it looks like it's going to come apart in little bloody pieces.

Woe. Most dolorous and lachrymose woe.

Love is not a victory march, or: fannish-yet-true hyperbole. )

I have often wished I could do something about its decline, but I've never wanted it to disappear.

And now it looks like that could happen.

ETA: No, really, if it IS a hoax, then Wall Street Journal is in on it.

On which note, I attempt to sleep. Goodnight and good luck.

Kitana's ending in MKvsDC? And others, but mostly Kitana's ending.

SPOILERS. Don't click or don't whine. Those are your choices. )

While I'm still on the soapbox. What MKvsDC does make me want to see?

The next MK film, computer generated.

I'm serious. It's high time we got something more out of the technology than The Ant Bully.
jheti: Inara from Firefly, by Angiefaith. (it is too in the right aspect ratio)
Dear Midway,

Please make Jax this awesome every single game. ^_^

Your endings are still shit on a stick, but I'm getting used to it. Feh.

Re: Baraka:

You have achieved character rape the like of which I have never attempted. You do not get a cookie. You get a giant honkin' FAILBISCUIT.

No love whatsoever.

In case you missed it: FAILBISCUIT.

NO LOVE. FAILBISCUIT.

I, I, I. There are not words.

And after you went to all that trouble to unfuck his head, too.

Still slashing him with Batman. So hard. So there.

Nnnnnffffffftssssss. <3

Like many gamers of a certain vintage, I have dreamed a dream: one of arcade machine ownership.

The dream is over. I am awake.

After long months of searching and a few scary encounters with weirdos, Craigslist at last brought me this.

I own it, and it works. It works. I kept a lid on this for weeks, because there was some kind of glitch that prevented her from running at switch-on every time.

After a bit of twiddling with the wires in the back, the problem is gone.

Now, I like NBA Jam well enough, but really, there are better uses for A MIDWAY CABINET with A MIDWAY CHIPSET. *This is a baseball-bat-to-the-forehead HINT.*

I have such plans, oh yes.

Same year, same company, same soundboard as Mortal Kombat. (MKII's DCS, by a different company; can't have everything I want for Christmas.) DUDE WHO CARES IT'S THE SAME BOARD AS THE ORIGINAL and it is pristine. (I'm so excited I'm shaking. Yes, for real.)

And, in the meantime? Perfectly working basketball game. It's really fun! You can be people like Patrick Ewing and Scottie Pippen! (My age, it shows. XD)

FOR THREE POINTS...AND...IT'S GOOD! ^_^

Sometime while I was hibernating, Sonya randomly became a General.

(Ed really likes to do this. A lot. Witness the million Outworld generals and their total inability to get anything done. Which is a remark that must touch a nerve; Baraka is apoplectic. XD)

Meanwhile in canon, no sign that Jax, who originally outranked her by a fair bit, was ever promoted even once.

Nice, Ed. Real nice. Way to not even Google stuff. Because that would've taken four whole minutes if you paused to read the text that goes with the pretty charts.

Saddest part is, this seems to have happened about two games ago (I can't locate the precise point in canon, but it's around the time the whole deeply boring Kenshi thing takes place) and it was so quietly done that one of her more vocal supporters on the board appears not to know it has taken place.

I mean. I'm not the world's hugest Sonya fan, but if I was, I'd think her rank would matter to me; it outlines the expectations of her job, what she knows/is capable of, and the kind of shit she has to put up with, and also, definitively, why she does not have the time to go anywhere with Johnny Cage, let alone to the Bahamas to hop the broom.

I mean.

WHAT?

Wow, okay, by comparison, the idea that Leena's MKD ending might be canon isn't looking so bad.
jheti: Inara from Firefly, by Angiefaith. (wanna play?)
I have an incredibly dorky fondness for these, despite consciously knowing that they are awful.

*Cough* Full set as of three cons ago. *Cough.*

And, uh, this fellow did the cover for my favorite one. See?

He has also done a badass rendition of the He-Man characters.

Among numerous other things. Including, apparently, some cute render thing that I will go admire.

O Internet, my Internet. <3

If the Mortal Kombat franchise were my boyfriend, I could describe him thusly, gargling through my mangled face around the respirator tubes the medics almost didn't insert in time:

"He hits me because he loves me. And I love him. Forever and ever. I mentioned he loves me?"

COME the fuck ON.

Fuck you, Midway. "MK8", or whatever you finally call the shitty spinoff game with probably no Tarkatans in it because you are dicks like that...is not an acceptable excuse.

Even if Kitana/Mileena/Baraka prison rape sex were suddenly gloriously, magically out and out canon, no, it would not make up for this.

It would help. I mean, it...It would be a fun start. But I still don't forgive you.

Just...fuck you.

For the first time in literally MORE THAN HALF MY LIFE, I am contemplating not buying into your shit, not looking forward to your product, and, yes, not following it.

(On the level, I haven't always OWNED some of the drek you shoveled out, because I do not like, um, well, certain characters, or care whether they, er, get an ancillary sidescrolling game. And having Jax but not Sonya was just too stupid to even justify a rental. They are fuckbuddies A TEAM. Seriously.)

You...you people are...I just.

I need a shower.

The fen over at MKO deliver again. Very nice-quality rip of the arena tunes from Armaggedon here.

They're well-spliced and very well put together. And we are promised more, eventually. ^_^

The Firewell is working on becoming a favorite. It's like the MKII tunes on steroids.

Oh, look, fanfic chatter. Without any actual fanfic attached. Fandoms are probably listed in tags.

Three IS a prime number... )

Going back and forth between my MK X-Box titles: the Armageddon models really are a considerable improvement. A lot of that is some differences in light and surface-thingy-scatter-what-is-this-word-I-don't-KNOW.

Also: air kombat. Much, much nicer when you suddenly don't have it anymore. You immediately want it back. The same with wake-up. It's in the details. Does actually change the face of the game.

Blah blah blah BARAKA blah blah blah blah. )

Now, if only this game came in tag-team mode. You could line up absolutely classic things, like forcing Scorpion and Sub-Zero to be on the same team. Fujin and Raiden. Johnny Cage and Sonya Blade.

That would kick ass.

I don't think the fanbase would go for it at all, but it would kick ass.

Goodnight.
