I'm on a roll! It's strange - this is technically the busiest year I've ever had, but I've written more in two months than I did all last year.

It's a Kingdom Hearts story this time - my first since 'Take This Key'. Anyway, I really need to get on to writing some Aqua.

Title: Unbreakable Chains
Fandom: Kingdom Hearts
Author: starling-night
Genre: Character study, psychological
Pairings: None
Rating: K
Words: 4,109 
Summary:  These are the things Sora knows: he has a heart. He loves his friends. He’s the keyblade’s chosen one. He hates Organization XIII and he doesn’t have a choice, because he has to do what he has to do, to save the world and save his friends. And sooner or later, one way or another, he's going to win this thing. It's only a matter of time.

 And another fic! Trying to finish all this stuff before school starts...

Title: The Taste Of Flames
Fandom: Phoenix Wright - Ace Attorney
Genre: Psychological, Angst
Summary: When Nick loses his badge, Maya is determined to help him recover it. Whatever the price, she’s willing to pay it, even if that means letting an old enemy in – and by then it’s too late to turn back. Maya/Phoenix, of a sort.
Characters: Maya Fey, Phoenix Wright, Dahlia Hawthorne, Mia Fey, Pearl Fey


Maya reflects that it must be an example of some twisted humour on the world’s part that the worst thing possible had to happen on such an absolutely perfect day... )

Posting my latest fic here! Also crossposted to fanfiction.net and Archive Of Our Own.

Title: Almost Like Flying
Genre: Psychological, Drama, Angst
Summary: A scyther is captured, and she hates it - right up until she doesn't. Whether this is a good thing or not depends on who you ask.
Characters: Scyther, Lyra/Kotone, Typhlosion
Notes: Set in gameverse Johto, with Lyra from HG/SS as the 'player character'. And just as a heads up, I do enjoy playing the games.

In terms of writing, of course.

So here on the internets I've noticed that many literary analysis people severely dislike writing done in first person present tense. I can see why this would be a problem - it can be severely misused.
So then of course I wondered if I was doing it wrong. So I go to my ff.net page, and...well, let's look at the figures.

First person: 7
Third person: 10

Not bad, but...

Present tense: 13
Past tense: 4


First person present: 6
Third person past: 2


(The rest are third person present or first person past.)

I don't know, but the FPPS style is just so easy and natural for me that it's difficult to make myself write in other styles. This is likely to be a problem, because 'easy and natural' does not equal 'actual good writing'. It just means I don't get writers' block as much with that style, or have problems imagining what I'm going to say.

So. I've been vaguely trying to wean myself off first person. My more recent stories are all in third person. But I'm currently writing a fic about Rena's perspective of Onikakushi-hen, and I tried so hard, but I couldn't imagine it in anything but first person, and so I went 'OK but it has to be past tense', but then it was crap and I changed it, and now I'm justifying it being FPPS with the fact that the visual novels are like that...eh. It's gotta stop sometime, but I don't even know. I'm not even concretely sure what the problems with FPPS are, so not enough motivation to change, either.
