Why did I just write two thousand more words of a Kingdom Hearts fic quite despite the minor detail that I still don't know anything about its canon? And why am I planning to write two more parts of it? XD

Good question.

Oh, right.

So the first of the three characters is Reno.  Which kept making me think of the Capital One commercial with David Spade where he's saying "no" in as many ways as possible and resorts to, "Go to Reno, play some keno in the casino."

I couldn't find that particular one, but I found this one and this one instead. 8D

I forgot about those commercials!

I'd be terrified about writing in a fandom that I'm unfamiliar with, but the whole adding to the word count this is awesome! Where are you supposed to be now to keep to the schedule?

I used to remember them in the pre-YouTube days and go, "Man, I wish there was some way I could watch those again...!" XD

Weirdly, I actually wrote the primary pairing last year, before I'd seen head or tail of the game itself. My sister played through the whole thing this summer, but she decided to do most of it while I was either asleep or out doing stuff, so I saw just enough to get introduced to the characters I'd blithely been writing about, which was slightly odd. XD And Wikipedia is my friend, as always. XD

Uhhh... At that count yesterday, I was just over a thousand words behind. So I'm sort of catching up but need to catch up faster. XD

My rl friend who's doing NaNo said she was up to 20,000. I cannot imagine writing that fast!

It's mostly just a matter of not thinking about it and refusing to take notice of quality-or-lack-thereof. XD

I'm surprised I'm keeping up as well as I am; I had to write 10,000 words the last day in '06 and would never have made it if I hadn't stayed up until obscene hours over Thanksgiving... XD

o.O The very idea makes me nauseous!

It's really odd; most of what you write is mediocre, and you can tell reading it that it's filler, but it's usually not as bad as you'd expect. 8D

That's quite bold of you!

But you do have a way of side-stepping the horrors of canon to create cute, delightful fluff. Metaphorically speaking, you do excellently too :)

So you decided to do Nano or are you still cheating?

I'm not completely ignorant of it, fortunately, and it seems like people are mostly just interested in getting the characters in the right ballpark, and this particular one is AU anyway, so I'm wingin' it. XD Stupid muse... :P

Hee, this is true. XD Silly canon, getting in the way of my fluff...

I'm still cheating massively. 8D

Is it wrong that one of my first thoughts was, "I hope Jenwryn doesn't get too addicted, because I think she has enough awesome stuff in the works as is."

Unfortunately, I think you'll like Axel and Roxas very much. Particularly given all the damn sexy fanart out there. XD

I'm not completely ignorant, 'cause I got into it a little last year and did my Wikipedia research and figured out the fandom perspective on things, but... heh. My sister actually played the game over the summer, but I was always off doing something else, so that failed. XD And then there was last night, when I spent literally hours watching cutscenes online. O_o

It's crazy how much I like stealing existing characters now. I don't think this urge existed before fanfiction. Well, definitely not as strongly. XD

I'll link you poor, defenseless dears when the time comes. As in, when I stop being a lazy bum and edit the first two sections and post them. XD

They are DEADLY. XD This one girl I'm art-stalking is the whole reason I was dumb enough to start with this... these... pairing...s... in the first place. Everything she draws makes me want to come up with the story behind it. XD
