Quick political comment! )

Moving on, I'm still trying to figure out some things in life, but my mood has been improving.

I wish there weren't so many movies to see, now that I have no income. I really want to see Spider-Man: Homecoming, and I'm convinced I'd enjoy Cars 3, too. I'd also still like to see Wonder Woman.

Camp NaNo starts very soon, and I'm second-guessing my project. This is par for the course, though. We'll see what I end up inspired to write - no matter what it is, it should be fun!

I'm doing better! Figured out some life stuff I may talk about later in a post, but... Yup! Overall, just in a better place.

The start of Camp NaNo fast approaches! I think I have a writing project that I've settled on, but who knows with me? I don't think I ever haven't changed my story on the first day... Sometimes even after that. Oops.

The first day of Camp NaNo is also my fiancee's birthday! :D I can't wait for her to open her gifts from me!

And summer is finally here, woo! To me, that means Pokemon Go walks, watermelon, and binge-rewatching Phineas and Ferb!

It's so hot. I hate this. I didn't mind all the rain at all, and now... Ugh. I'm melting. Anyway.

I have a big writing project in the works, specifically, my Treat Yo Self Descendants reboot... Thing. So that's exciting, and will probably double as my Camp NaNo project in July.

I want to warm up with some, like, shorter things, though. I haven't really written fic in a kind of a while - you know, by my standards - so I'd like to get un-rusty. Thing is... I can't decide what I want to write. I have a few ideas: A Steven Universe college AU is the big one that keeps coming up, but... It might be easier if I'd been in college a) longer and b) more recently. And... I know I have other ideas to write jotted down somewhere, but I can't remember what they are, or where I wrote them down.

I'm pretty focused on SU for the warm-up writing, since it won't be my Camp NaNo/Treat Yo Self project, and I've had 'all the feels' since Wanted. Um... But yeah! It's weird, I have motivation to write, and inspiration to write, but just... Not enough of either, I guess.

I think I can blame the heat for all the motivation I'm missing, honestly. This kind of weather always makes me feel so sluggish. (I love summer as a concept - the idea of freedom and creativity and all that during summer is still drilled in my brain from my school days, and Phineas and Ferb, but why can't we have that big break in spring? Which, yes, I suppose it's technically still spring for a few more days, but you know.)

...Oops.

I owe my local library $16, apparently. Couldn't find some books and DVDs for a while... Hopefully I can just pay the late fees and won't be required to pay the replacement fines, since I did eventually find everything. Hopefully I can run it in today.

I also need to borrow their copy of How to Train Your Dragon 2, soooo...

I'm behind on Steven Universe AND Big Bang Theory by three episodes each, so I'm hoping to fix that today, as well. I don't go into work until 4:30 today, and I'll basically be in until closing after that. Not bad at all, since the store usually gets pretty quiet after 5 or 6.

I am now officially and completely settled on a Camp NaNo project, and I'm wildly excited about what I've come up with! I need to get some planning in, though, or it's going to be a total mess. I made a playlist for it, does that count?

I hope everyone's doing well!

Oh, right, and Pokemon Moon update! Team remains the same, although I'm on Poni Island, so Ella should be evolving soon! More excitingly... Between carrying over Pokemon from my first run via Pokemon Bank, and a lot of GTS trading, I have already completed the Pokedex and gotten the Shiny Charm!

So, I've decided I will be writing a Moana/How to Train Your Dragon crossover AU with the Moana/Hiccup ship for Camp NaNo next month... But I'm still not sure what kind of AU I want to work with. There's a few possibilities so far:
  • High School AU - classic and simple, and easier to write in terms of research, but more difficult - for me at least - to inject plot into.
  • Pokemon AU - I'd be going with an Alola AU, naturally, with Hiccup as either a Sinnoh native or a native to a Region I'd create, who has just moved to Alola. I don't think I'd follow the plot of Sun and Moon; it make take place after it, though, so some events could be referenced.
  • Canon Melding AU - Basically, Polynesian!Hiccup as one of the villagers around Moana's age in Motunui. They'd be childhood friends, and honestly, this would work best as a retelling of Moana, the film. The problem is, retellings are very hard to pull off - again, for me at least - without getting to verbatim.
Any thoughts or alternate suggestions?

I'm feeling a bit better this evening, for a few reasons. I picked up groceries and stuff after work, and I received an email reminder that Camp NaNo is next month - which will hopefully jumpstart my creativity! I'll be aiming to write 25k words of fic, I think, but I'm not sure which fandom just yet. Anyway, do I have any fellow NaNo-ers among my mutuals?

For those unfamiliar with NaNoWriMo and Camp NaNo:

You might want to check those links out; it's a pretty fun set of events!

Additionally, it's time for the usual Pokemon Sun and Moon update!

So, Lillie just got kidnapped... (Although I'm not sure how much you can call it a kidnapping. She did go willingly, after all.) Time to rescue the maiden fair! My team currently consists of: Ella the Charjbug, Hiram the Leafeon, Moonshy the Alolan Persian, Bones the Alolan Marowak, Pyke the 10% Zygarde, and - at long last! - Dawn the Primarina!
