sarasusa: (sai from HnG artbook)
Author’s Note: My attempt to write a fic for a request by [livejournal.com profile] ferretgirl_1124 here on fic_on_demand--it didn't wind up satisfying the terms of the request, alas.
Title: Secret Bases
Fandom: Fruits Basket
Rating: K+ for mild teen angst.
Pairings: a bit o' Kyou/Tohru here, a bit o' Yuki/Tohru there…
Summary: Set somewhere during manga vol. 9 (after the end of term, just before the momentous visit to the summer home).
Disclaimer: Heigh-ho, nobody home, Furuba copyright have I none, still will I be merry...

This feels pretty rough—I'm passing the hat for suggested revisions. I find Yuki hard to write, partly because—as of manga vol. 12—Takaya's still withholding key information on what makes him tick.

In other news, I'd like to tout the virtues of

del.icio.us!


What is it?
--An online location for your bookmarked websites, so you can retrieve them from any Internet connection
--A flexible system for organizing bookmarks (you assign subject tags--then, if you click on one of the tag labels, it will retrieve all the sites with that tag).
--A way to share your favorite sites with others!

[livejournal.com profile] lislemck posted about it some time back, but I just got around to setting up my own account (take a look!). And boy, is it fun--not to mention a lot easier to deal with than the Internet Explorer favorites-folder system.

Yesterday, I was part of an assembly in a public elementary school where the Pledge of Allegiance was recited. I didn't feel clear (Quakerese for being spiritually comfortable with something) to honor the flag as a symbol. However, standing there with my hand over my heart but remaining silent until "liberty and justice for all," I started to think--how might I express what really matters to me? What would I say instead?

I came up with the following. (I wonder what other "alternative Pledges" folks have created?)

I've fallen in love with this webcomic (found via the rich list of links on the website of [livejournal.com profile] bakashoujiki):

No Rest for the Wicked


It twines together various familiar fairytales in a smoky new blend--I have no idea what the outcome's going to be! The art (mostly in black and white and shades of gray) has a manga feel.
