coprime: an awesome lady stepping out of a boat (Default)
Thursday, January 1st, 2009 09:15 pm
Now that it's January 1st, I can say I wrote The Spring Thaw for [livejournal.com profile] jesidres, and [livejournal.com profile] jesidres wrote the lovely Symbiotic Nature for me. I'd wondered when I saw that there were all of three Mushishi stories this year if maybe my recipent and I had gotten assigned each other. And it turns out we were! It is a funny old world sometimes.

I really enjoyed writing The Spring Thaw, although it took me a while to write because I was worried that I wouldn't be up to the challenge of Mushishi and blending my typical writing voice with the feeling of the series. My idea for the kaihyouki actually came from an art piece by [livejournal.com profile] jesidres, and the rest of the story sort of formed itself around the fact that I wanted to use these mushi she drew in her story. I don't think it was very obvious that I borrowed them from her art though.

I have discovered that there are only so many times I can see people reccing Merlin stories that can be more or less summarized by "Arthur and Merlin act like morons" before I succumb and start reading them. Without having seen even a scrap of the actual show, mind you, which led to the interesting visualization of Uther being played by Patrick Stewart. And when I started watching the show, it was a bit funny because I already knew each episode's basic plot and resolution. But I've been enjoying them all the same, and Patrick Stewart no longer shows up when I read fic, so it's all good.
