Three Lila Redemption prompts:

1) Ladybug confronts Chloe about her behavior, and will only invite Queen Bee out to play again if Chloe proves she's willing to do the work to be an actual good person. How can she do this? By befriending Lila Rossi, chronic liar and akuma bait, and making her less awful. (Chlila optional.)

2) Lila is actually convinced by Ladybug's speech in Chameleon, and starts spying on Hawkmoth for Team Miraculous. Does she tell Ladybug and/or Cat Noir she's doing this or change her behavior at all? No idea! Dealer's choice.

3) Lila is hit with something that compels her to tell the truth; not only are all of her lies revealed, but we finally learn the reason she can't stop telling them.

Just needed to get this out of my system again, not sure how coherent it's going to be.

Confession: I don't like Lila Rossi (But I want to out of spite) )

The saddest ML plunny I have ever considered writing: The one where Miraculous wielders get stuck with Modified Fruits Basket Hug Rules. (Nuclear family member hugs are now okay, but all other hugs are out regardless of participants' gender/assigned sex; Adrien is slightly glad for the excuse to start enforcing boundaries with fans and Chloe other people, and as for the rest, well. He can't miss what he never had. Marinette, meanwhile, is hugging her parents as much as she feels she can get away with, and she didn't exactly think she had a chance with the cute new boy at school, even if he did give her his umbrella. And if hugs between Cat Noir and Ladybug are kind of weirdly intense whenever they happen, neither of them is taking questions about it.)

The next-most-sad plunny currently in the hutch: The one where Ladybug figures out that the kiss cure from Dark Cupid can work every time Cat Noir gets hit with an akuma's power, but is sure it will only ever work one way, because Cat Noir is not her True Love, and she isn't going to get Innocent Civilian Adrien Agreste tangled up in this if she doesn't have to.


You can tell the first one is sadder because it hasn't made me cackle horribly even once, while I cackled over the second just typing up the summary.

SCREECH!

New podfic alert! New podfic alert for one of my fics! Eeeeeeeee!

The delightful [archiveofourown.org profile] Tomoyochan has graciously recorded a podfic of Medamour or Less; you can find the recording over here :DDD The reader brings some great energy to the work, and I could totally feel the love through my speakers ♥

You can check out the written version at this AO3 link, as well as here on Dreamwidth

Me: Hmm...
Me: *looks up Camembert cheese on Wikipedia for a fic detail*
Me: ...Holy crap, it literally smells like gym socks???

Wikipedia: Camembert cheese gets its characteristic odor from many compounds. These include diacetyl (buttery flavoring for popcorn), 3-methylbutanal, methional (degradation product of methionine), 1-octen-3-ol and 1-octen-3-one (degradation products of fats), phenethyl acetate, 2-undecanone, δ-decalactone, butyric acid, and isovaleric acid (odor of gym socks).

Me: Well. That sure is a thing, then, isn't it.

---

In other news, it does seem like Camembert can be safely stored at room temperature for a fair amount of time, so I don't need to sneak a Camembert-exclusive mini-fridge into Adrien's room. Not that Plagg would let any go uneaten long enough to go truly bad...

Notes: You ever read a prompt and not even contemplate writing it because it's so far from what you like to write that it's practically in another dimension? Ever do that and have a plot bunny hit you upside the head so hard for said prompt that it knocks it into your wheelhouse from out of left field? Which is to say: This fic is nowhere near angsty enough to do the prompt justice, but once my brain sidled up all, "You know what would be hilarious," I had to write it anyway.

Ha-HAH! With the majority of my brain powers restored and me mostly on the mend from that horrible throat cold thing that's been going around in these parts, I have finally gotten the willpower to finish this: my example of how to take a story idea and turn it into an outline!

It's Miraculous Ladybug, because that's what I'm into at the time of this writing, but I hope it still makes a modicum of sense to folks unfamiliar with the show. I'll probably go back and edit this again with a mind to that later, but for right now I'm pretty much happy that it's done at all. (Also, majority of brain powers restored is not entirety of brain powers restored, and giving my noggin a bit more of a rest while I'm still somewhat on the mend would not be remiss.)

(Yes, I probably should be using a Ladybug icon instead of a Cat Noir icon for this post, since I'm creating something, but I'm still editing that one and I'm finally happy with this one, so this is the one you get.)

Peer under the cut to find out how I go from Idea to Outline~! (ey said in eir best circus showperson voice) )

And that's a walkthrough of How to Outline as according to the Socchan School of Writing. (I will definitely need to revise my preliminary How to Outline post now.)

Side note/disclaimer: I do not actually plan to write this fic as of this point in time, which is one of the reasons I left Step 5 "incomplete". If this outline has piqued your interest and you might be interested in doing the grunt work of filling in scenes, uh. Maybe? Probably? IDK, if you're cool with the possibility that I may someday come back and write my own version, then go forth with my blessing (and link me when you're done). Edit: EXCEPT [personal profile] alexseanchai, who is not allowed anywhere near this until or unless they get more work done on the Double Trouble 'verse.

Shoutout to [personal profile] redsixwing, who has pointed out that the art in my icon looks suspiciously like an Art Deco shrimp, rather than the fox tail it is supposed to resemble. I blame the excessive red tones, and can't unsee it now.

(All that time tracing and coloring that damn design in Paintshop Pro, and it's a shrimp now. ...I need to do something with this. Very, very badly.)

Important discovery: When someone gifts you an incredible fic (or other fannish present), watching the hits and kudos and comments and bookmarks go up is almost as satisfying as it is for something you made yourself.

Which is to say, if you are Miraculous Ladybug inclined, do go check out Know Your Name by [archiveofourown.org profile] AlexSeanchai/[personal profile] alexseanchai, prompted by the Mary Lambert song of the same name (which is the LadyNoir song of my heart, and is also super awesome in its own right); I do not imagine you will be disappointed.

Finally, finally, finally I have a Miraculous Ladybug icon. Two, actually; one Rena Rouge, and one Queen Bee. It was high time I added some to my collection.

I've still got the Ladybug and C(h)at Noir ones to make at the very least, and then I'll release them into the wild. They've been taking a while, since I haven't been able to find any actual official images of just the Miraculous designs. I'll see about getting Carapace done as well, but I'll likely need to take a screencap myself for that; due to the lack of official images, I've been "tracing" and approximating the Miraculous designs from the backgrounds of the heroes' transformation poses. The images I've gotten so far have been via the ML Wiki, and they don't have Carapace's up yet. (I'm definitely disappointed; Nino has gotten less hype and less development, IMO, than the other Miraculous heroes so far. I want to know more about him, darnit!)

Provided I have the energy/brainpower tomorrow, I'm hoping to write up an example of developing an outline from an idea, as per the Socchan School of Writing; I've got two potential plunnies I have deliberately put off developing further for just that reason. That said, work has been super busy lately (ugh ugh ugh), and I'm not sure how long I'll be there tomorrow. Fingers crossed!
