For anyone who hasn't guessed by now, this is the official announcement: There will not be a Power Rangers Day 2016 fic exchange.

I wish I could, and I will miss it it terribly, but between mandatory overtime at my work and a two month old munchkin in my life, I just don't have the time. -_-

My sincere apologies to anyone who was looking forward to it. With any luck, next year will find me in a better place to start the exchange up again.

- Treats do not have a due date. If you feel inspired by a prompt and find yourself posting before reveals are up, GO FOR IT! If you'd like to take your time to work on your treat, feel free to do so!

July was hell. I spent the entire month moving into my new(!!!) apartment. (Seriously. >.<) Among other work-related issues. I may rant further on the subject in a future Life Updates post.

More importantly, PR Day assignments are due next week! ohshitohshitohshit While I was gone, a Very Important Question was posed that ... honestly had not occurred to me until asked. So, in all fairness, I decided to offer that question up for debate.

PR Day participation not required. ^_~

If you use AO3 to post fic, a site called Ebooks Tree had installed a bot to download fanfic and post it on their own site - a download site with paid advertising.

More information about Ebooks Tree, just what it is that they're doing, and why this is NOT OKAY can be found through links here.

AO3 has been made aware and updates can be found here. There are templates for demanding they take down your works here and here. Be sure and screenshot your message when you send it, just in case you need proof later.

So far we've found stories for myself, Arytra, PunkPinkPower, Starandrea, TheSecondBatGirl, tptigger, EstiRose, PockySquirrel, Rivulet027, Dahlia_Moon, gingayellow, Griddlebone, Lilyleia78, IndigoMay, Guardian of Hope, Sailorsol, Terrierlee, werepuppyblack, wildforce71, Angel-negra. I'm pretty sure the bots were going through bookmark lists. PLEASE go search your name, and anyone else you can think of! And spread the word: no one deserves to have their hard work used without their permission.

* Posting this on tumblr, too. If there's anyone else you find that you're not sure how to contact, please reply or add them to the list so we can make sure someone who does know their e-mail can tell them.

Today is sick day.

Shi-chan has sick for the past few days. As always, we have valiantly tried to avoid sharing. As always, my lazy pathetic excuse for an immune system laughed in my face.*

Unfortunately after hours of reading Teen Wolf and Pacific Rim and Avengers fic - the reasons for these transitions now eluded me - I have come to the conclusion that I really, really, really want an Alpha/Beta/Omega 'verse Samurai story. The plot is even halfway written in my head.

For the curious and/or horrified: )

Unfortunately everything I know about Alpha/Beta/Omega dynamics comes from reading Avengers and like, one Teen Wolf fic. And the idea trying to research it enough to write this kind of scares me almost as much as the idea of actually going ahead and writing it.


I should really stop plotting fic when I'm sick ...

* I have a slight fever, a headache, and a sore throat that feels like I swallowed broken glass. Mostly I'm just tired and cranky and whiny.

Today's Dilema:

a) Play Sims 3, using baby versions of all the Samurai Rangers with parents and raise them into adulthood so I can build all their skills and manipulate their interests.

b) Play Sims 3, using adult versions of all the Samurai Rangers, so I can have them paired off and being sappy as soon as possible in hopes of getting inspired for fic.
And 1) throw all seven Rangers in one house while hoping my computer doesn't have a heart attack and die, so that I can play with everyone at once. Maybe. Hopefully.
Or 2) separate them into a Jayden/Lauren/Antonio house, with Antonio/Jayden fluff and sibling bonding, and a Kevin/Mike/Mia/Emily house, with social experimentation to see which of them start to pair up first without manipulation. (Always fun.) These options may inspire me for Changing Tactics.

c) Play Sims 3, using the OC Rangers I created so that I can explore making them friends and get ideas about more origin stories.

d) Watch a couple episodes of Samurai in hopes of actually getting off my ass and working on more Changing Tactics. Not that they've inspired me so far, but hey, you never know.

I'm pondering if I should combine my desire for Jayden and Antonio raising Jayden's daughter together with my desire for Samurai coffee shop AU.

You see, Wordsplat took this sign and made a really cute Avengers version with Steve/Tony. (Wordsplat is AMAZING, by the way. Go read everything she's ever written. Seriously, GO.)

I've been contemplating whether or not Closeted needs a sequel. Originally I had planned to write one, but then everyone who read it has commented sees to love it as an answer to canon. Which. -Writer Squee of Happiness- But now I'm not sure if it needs a sequel after all?

But then I read Wordsplat's fic and saw the sign for it, and now I'm thinking Antonio and Lauren end up working in a coffee shop together post-Samurai and Antonio is an indie musician on the side and they are BFFs. Although I haven't decided which former Ranger/Rangers would own/be involved in this, and I'm kind of scared that it may turn into the coffee version of Ranger's Rest if I'm not careful.


(Seriously there are Reasons for these things in my head but they take too long to explain and no one really understands my trail of thought anyway.)

So now I want Samurai Coffee AU, or at least Samurai Coffee Shop fic, (Or Rocky/Adam Coffee Shop fic, because I can so see this for them too), but I also want Antonio/Jayden with babies, and a happier ending to splitting them up, and ALL THE FLUFF*.


* I spent the last two days marathoning Men in Black, Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy (for Towel Day), Shounen Onmyoji and Haruoki with Shi-chan. The last two BROKE MY HEART. (She has a genre, even if she denies it.)

Title: Closeted
Author: Tsukino Akume
Fandom: Power Rangers Samurai
Pairing/characters: Antonio/Jayden
Rating: K
Prompt: Power Rangers Samurai, Antonio/Jayden, Jayden has difficulty even saying the word “Gay”. Antonio tries not to out him to his friends or family, despite the fact that they are together and he wants to be as OUT as possible. He has some internal struggle with going back in the closet for the sake of true love, even if only until their mission is done.
Summary: Antonio struggles to deal with needing to keep his relationship with Jayden a secret.
Warnings: Angst, slight internalized homophobia

Going into the closet is the equivalent of slamming a door in his own face.
