Out of the fire into the...pool?  
Well, I'm bloody tired. In a good way though. Working hard on uni-work that got finished today (had two days of presentations that in total last five hours/day *is dead*), so finally have some free time. Though technically free time starts Sunday, as I have a moving in party to prepare for tomorrow :)

Anyways...

Gifts I made for Yuletide 2010:

Title: Under

---------------

Title: Sometimes You Should Listen to the Romans
Pairing: Astrid/Hiccup, but only because it's canon

Ee, I still love 'Under.' ♥ And I didn't know you were into HTTYD, too! :D Very cute ♥

Why thank you, my friend! Yeah, I really liked HTTYD - though I've always had a weakness for dragons. I just can't help but think up weird and impossible adventures for Hiccup & co to get up to with their scaly companions! Might write something longer in the future, one never knows...

Aw, same here! I love dragons. ♥ I wrote exactly one HTTYD fic, and it was so horrifically depressing (how I managed to turn the cutest movie I've seen in years into something angst-ridden and dark, I'll never know) that I haven't tried for a second. XD But I totally think you should write more, I'd love to see it. ♥

Making cheerful child oriented movies and cartoons dark and dreary is so much fun though! Which is why I always wish for a more adult version of Thundercats for Yuletide (no, not smut, just less 'good guys vs bad guys nobody bleeds or dies'). Did you post that fic anywhere? *goes on a fic hunt*

But yeah, HTTYD was just so uplifting to watch - especially the flying scenes - while still remaining grounded enough, so I don't really have the urge to darken it up (for once), so if I managed to get another fic down in Open Office expect more dragon awesomeness and wonderful culture clashes between Vikings and outsiders!

Oh man, I've always secretly wanted to write a more adult Swat Kats fic -- did you ever see that cartoon? Again, not smut, just ... darker. It has so much potential. Unfortunately, though, that would be one of those self-indulgent exercises ... I don't think I'd ever be able to find anyone interested in actually reading it. XD

Haha, indeed I did ~ it's over at my writing journal, here: In Effigy

One of my friends summed it up best, I think, when she said that HTTYD achieved that feeling of wonder that we tend to lose as adults -- that so many other children's movies try to achieve, but fall drastically short of. I adore that film. ♥

Did I ever see Swat Kats? Are you kidding? I loved Swat Kats! Razor & T-Bone <3

I've been surfing the web for years trying to find good Swat Kats fic (there's some, but most of it is smut or about subjects that aren't my cup of tea) and if you write something I will read the hell out of it!

...please? I'm not above begging! Just look at my icon.

And yeah, HTTYD is truly wonderful in the words most literal meaning! And yay, fic-link! Will read it as soon as I've been to the store and taken all the garbage out (we had a moving in party yesterday, which was tons of fun, but now we have bottles and empty bags of chips left behind by ~20 people).

Gah, late replay is late. D: Sorry 'bout that, my inbox has been totally swamped lately and I'm so far behind on everything.

Anyway, I still owe you fic from forever ago; maybe I'll just write you Swat Kats fic instead. XD And we shall rejoice in being the only two people to read it, hooray!
