(no subject)

Finally moved my stuff with the most recent LiveJournal debacles. I decided to keep this strictly fic and a little bit of meta or other fandom ephemera. There is NO NEED to comment to be added any longer as I am NOT locking this journal.

If you do read something and you enjoy it, a comment would be appreciated but is not necessary. A future post with a deeper explanation of tags/ratings and perhaps links to a few personal favorites will be forthcoming.

Thanks for visiting.

Scene 1 of maybe 4...so 3 more to come if I can keep this up

It's been almost 2 years since I last posted anything, I think? I'm afraid to look. But I decided to gingerly dip in a toe in honor of Luffy's birthday. I'm rusty and wretchedly out of practice so please bear with me.

Terrible PWP ZoSopp ficcage

Happy Birthday Usopp! It's still barely your special day in some parts of the world so I consider this timely. Yosh.

Title: Eye of the Tiger (yeah, as lame as this)
Rating: R
Pairing: ZoSopp
Word Count: 3215
A/N: This is completely pointless, shameless, admittedly terrible smut. Because I needed to get it out of my system. And for reals, there is NO plot. We're talking Metalocalypse levels of PWP, and I don't normally do that for One Piece. Also, I wrote this quickly, just ran it through spell-check and haven't looked at it again so I KNOW it's awful. So you're warned. But I wanted to give Usopp something.

ETA: Now appended with impossibly even more poorly written smut from Luffy's perspective on this fic in the comments.

I'm being serious when I say this is terrible and also totally PWP. Read at your own risk. )

Help! Prompt Time

Dear F-List,

I've been trying for two weeks to work on something but everything I start is terrible and I end up trashing it. I think it's time for some cheese - a chance to just be writing SOMETHING.

So please - throw any prompt that you'd like this way. Any One Piece or Metalocalypse pairing/character/whatever and some sort of prompt.

I don't promise anything decent but it'll at least be...weird?! Dunno if that's a good thing or even the sort of thing that invites prompts, but if you feel like it, please leave one!

I'd be very grateful! Thanks in advance!

So this is an unfinished and half-assed thing that got borked by canon and by my own inability to write anything in a timely manner. And I didn't get far enough into it to finish it as an au but I wrote too much I liked to just trash it so...I'm posting it here for my own amusement. I'm starting a complete re-write of the idea that will match the canon instead and it'll be funny for me when I finally get the thing done in months or however damn long it takes to compare the two.

The first third of a story that was supposed to be about Usopp and Zoro getting it on after the battle for Fishman Island...XD I started it right after the crew arrived in Gyoncorde Plaza and then never got around to finishing it and so all the details are completely wrong in canon. It never got beyond PG. Also, I cannibalized elements for that shitty LuZo I just posted so if seems rehashed...well, it's actually the first and better execution of certain ideas. )
