Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Well, I can't say as I'm surprised by the new LJ tos, or people's reactions to it. Me, I'm not going to get upset - for now, anyway. As I understand it, this will affect users in a particular country a lot more than it will US-, UK- or other users...

Anyhoo, I really don't post there anymore (or here either, for that matter) - all the action in my circles nowadays seems to be over at FB, so that's where I am - my activity here in recent months/years is basically just the occasional stray comment on others' posts. I'm leaving all journals up unless circumstances change so dramatically that I feel a need to shutter things, but I don't foresee that, at least not at this point in time. (Knock on wood, God willing.) I do have a Dreamwidth (same name) as a backup; you're welcome to come over there too and visit me. (Ditto the FB - just PM me)

Just taking it one day at a time; that's all any of us can ever do, I guess. Take care out there, all.

Updatedness, 2015 edition

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Same as last year's note. Still an LJer and Dreamwidther (same name). I seem to be over on the Facebollock and Twitter more (mainly because that's where everybody else seems to be, alas), though if you want to read those you'll have to PM me and (if you're not a longtime friend) let me know who y'all are.

The process of (slowly) uploading my GB fanfics over on AO3 (same name as this one) has been put on hold, as has any actual WIP fics, due to real-life concerns taking precedence at this time. You can still find many of my fics over on good 'ol fanfiction dot net, or here and on the LJ/DW.

Hope everyone is doing well.

Updatedness, 2014!

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
So it's been a while since I've been here...almost forgot about this journal, until I logged into my email tonight finding a threat-of-deletion notice for inactivity.

Most of my time is still over on LJ. I also maintain a mirror site over on Dreamwidth (same name). Last year I finally broke down and got a Facebollock and a Twitter, though if you want to read those you'll have to PM me and (if you're not a longtime friend) let me know who y'all are.

I'm also in the process of (slowly) uploading my GB fanfics over on AO3 (same name as this one).

Such is life.

Fic: Stairway To Heaven, ch. 8e (finished)

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Finally, some 30K. Can't believe it took me a whole year to finish this particular 30K fic. But a lot has happened with me too that delayed its finish, not least of which was a death in my family and unreliable internet access. Now I can move on to the next 30K piece - I think I have about five or six more of these puppies to crank out. I WILL succeed at fulfilling the 30_kisses challenge! *shakes mighty fist*

Title: Stairway To Heaven (ch. 8e)
Author/Artist: Amethyst Hunter
Pairing: Ban/Akabane
Fandom: Get Backers
Theme: #22 - "cradle"
Rating: PG-13 (language, m/m)
Warnings/Spoilers: Minor ones for basic canon.
Notes: The tarot used is the standard deck; I tweaked it a little to provide suitable drama for Himiko's reading. ;)
- "Nebt-het" is part of Akane's name; it's Egyptian for "lady of the house."
- "Karawan" is part of Akabane's Egyptian name; it's an ancient expression meaning "to ward off the evil eye."
Disclaimer: Don't own the GBers. Akane and Alistair Akabane though, are my own inventions.
Summary: Himiko reflects on the mysterious no-man's land that brought Ban and Akabane together, and a new path revealed sets into motion a revolution that will change everyone's lives forever.

Fic: Blood Oaths, ch. 3

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Title: Blood Oaths (ch. 3)
Author: Amethyst Hunter
Fandom/Pairing: Get Backers, Akabane/Himiko
Rating: R (violence, language, blood, all the happy fun things)
Warnings/Spoilers: See above.
Notes: This is sort of an AU that uses elements from the manga/anime canon, except I skewer it off into my own alterna-verse timeline.
Disclaimer: I don't own GB or any of its glorious characters. Much like Akabane, I fic solely for my own enjoyment. Except I don't kill anybody. Well, only in print, that is. ;)
Summary: When Akabane loses his primary weapon, Himiko tries to protect him from all the glory-seekers wanting their whack at a declawed Jackal. In his weakest hour, will Akabane learn to trust in a power greater than his own?

--

So, what does one do with a wounded Jackal? )

Fic: Stuck On You, ch. 2

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Title: Stuck On You (ch. 2)
Author: Amethyst Hunter
Rating: PG-13 (language, minor implied m/m)
Warnings/Spoilers: Minor ones for the Venus de Milo arc; key plot spoilers for the Jason Statham movie.
Notes: This is what happens when I watch Transporter 3 and Get Backers in the same weekend.
- The manga and anime use different translations for mafioso Ryuu Mouen’s name; I’m going with the anime’s version just ‘cause I like it better.
Disclaimer: I do not own thine GBers. The song ‘Barbie Girl’ belongs to Aqua. The Transporter movie and its script and characters all belong to Luc Besson or whomever else created them. All references therein are used strictly for nonprofit amusement. Yay crackfic!
Summary: Ban and Akabane are made an offer they can’t refuse. With a double-crossing client, the Undead, cops and angry mobsters alike after them, completing this mission will take every bit of strength they’ve got – if they don’t kill each other first!

Ban drives too fast, Akabane drives Ban crazy. Business as usual! )

Theme: #22 - "cradle"
Rating: PG-13 (language, m/m)

- The tarot used is the standard deck; I tweaked it a little to provide suitable drama for Himiko's reading. ;)
- I’d just like to add that pneumonia is VERY SERIOUS so if you ever get it, or know someone who has, PLEASE seek medical attention asap. It’s what killed a family member of mine a few years ago.

- "Karawan" is part of Akabane's Egyptian name; it's an ancient expression meaning "to ward off the evil eye."

More fic: Blood Oaths, ch. 1 (Get Backers, Akabane/Himiko)

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Let's hear it for multiple fic postings of simultaneously proceeding stories! XD

(This is one instance where I can fairly blame my ADD. I jump from story to story and work on them all, one piece at a time, as I go.)

I have a serious craving for Akabane/Himiko fic lately and this idea is actually one-story-in-two-fics, as I already (?!) have a sequel planned in the works. Onward ho to the writings! :D

And now for some GB humor:

Hevn's Creed: The Five Most Important Men In A Negotiator's Bed Life

The Shopkeeper, because he has plenty of juice for the day

The Beastmaster, because he's a tiger on the job

The Threadmaster, because he's easily wrapped around your finger (when he's not tied up in his work)

The Transporter, because he always delivers the goods that he promises

And the Retriever, because he always comes back for a piece of heaven!

Drabble for btamamura: Letters from Himiko

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
In clearing up some of my clutter recently, I happened upon a not-quite-hidden note scribbled by one of my muses. Let's see what Himiko wrote...


Sleazebag Kagami,

I received with much dread your flowers. They look very nice stuffed down the trash compacter drain in the Honky Tonk’s diner. The gesture was kind not really, but for future reference I hope not, I don’t particularly care for roses or you.

Also, please be aware that I am capable of making my own perfume and roasting you to a crisp with it so there is no need to purchase any for me because there’s no way in hell I’m going out with you.

And lastly, I hope you will remember that Ban hates your guts I do not receive unscheduled visitors and especially not in the middle of the night. I understand that we both work unusual hours you perverted peeping tom, but be advised that my security system does not differentiate between friend or foe at that hour who thinks it’s romantic to sneak inside someone’s bedroom anyway?!? and will respond accordingly Akabane sends his regards by the way.

In the future stay away loser I’m sure you will take my advice and go snort yourself full of diamond dust and consider a better suit the ramifications of your actions painful bloody death by perfume, snakebite, or scalpels, whichever occurs first.

Sincerely wishing you would find a new hobby,

Kudou Himiko

Sickness, but with fic! (Keeper's Watch update, ch. 10)

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Gross alert: Hacking up globs of crap that's accumulated in your lungs from aforementioned illness REALLY IS NOT FUN. D:

But look what surprisingly popped up in the midst of my suffering: a fic update! Mathilda continues to poke at Akabane's heartstrings.

Title: The Keeper’s Watch (ch. 10)
Author: Amethyst Hunter
Rating: R (violence, adult content)
Warnings/Spoilers: See above.
Notes: I’m not quite sure where this one came from, but I like the idea so I’m going with it.
- According to Wikipedia, per the language of roses, a purple rose is said to mean protection.
- Also, the name Mathilda (sometimes spelled Matilda) is of Teutonic derivation, from words meaning "might, strength" and "battle" (alternatively, “strength in battle”) – and as we all know, our darling Kuroudo has a fondness for such attributes..!
Disclaimer: GB and its loverly transporters sadly aren’t mine.
Summary: Akabane has his hands full chasing after a battle prospect, and when a mysterious visitor appears on his doorstep, he’s left to play sitter while trying to stay one step ahead of a deadly adversary.
