Livestream: 4F Reading/Edit - Over

Journal Entry: Wed Oct 29, 2014, 1:56 PM
Edit: The livestream is done and the story is posted. Maybe I'll do it again next time! 

So now that I have a shiny new toy in the form of a new laptop, I can participate in Livestreams/Join Me's, etc. I still don't have a tablet, so I can't draw on the screen, but I can write on this computer. I have a particularly good 4F draft this week, so I thought maybe I'd do a livestream of me reading it aloud, editing it, and posting it to the website.

The link is here:

new.livestream.com/accounts/10…

You must be a registered livestream user to participate, but I've done it before and it's not very hard. 

As for what I'm writing? This week's prompt at LiteraryFanFiction is "scary stories," and I decided to go a decidedly different route with that than you'd expect. My POV character is the Winter Soldier. 500ish words, so it'll be a short read with hopefully minimal actual editing. 

I'm not sure it'll work because I don't know what I'm doing, but it's worth a shot, and I hope to see you there.

The smells were so familiar, though he couldn't place them. They weren't distraction, exactly, but maybe they could have been sooner or later. They fed one of those bubbling brooks under the surface he noticed in the quiet as he waited for his mission. Something about the air, the wafting scents of refuse and cement dust, made some hidden, unnecessary part of him itch with anticipation.


Fortunately he had a mission to distract him, to keep the building moments of confusion away. He could hardly be bothered to wonder why an abandoned warehouse would reach at the drowned things when chaos unfolded below him. It felt strange and surreal to watch it all happen, to watch the combatants go at each other from afar. They fought mostly hand to hand, but the one notable ranged fighter had undeniable superiority alongside the laser turret, and in that chaos, one figure in blue stood out above the rest.

Without thinking, he lined him up in the sights, the familiar shape of a face he'd memorized wrapped in blue-water cloth. He could have him now, shoot him easily, and the mission would be complete at long last, the coda of a song that had gone on far too long. He had his choice of targets, for the shield was on the other side of them, pointed at the ranged fighter everyone but he believed had the advantage. A head shot to be quick, a blow to the torso to be sure, and maybe both to be certain. The longing made his finger twitch and clank.

The blue shifted, the white sand face underneath it turning and drawing, and even in the distance some part of his mind could see those eyes go wide with some uncomfortable feeling that had been shocked out of him. He followed their gaze to the tiny figure in black pinned underneath a foe well over twice her size, staring up with a stony blankness that made him remember the smell of refuse and dust in an alley. For a second, he saw a glint of round, silver metal, but the brief flood of memory receded as quickly as it came.

He trained his sights back on the Captain, gritting his teeth, scraping his fingers on like. He waited until he saw the back of the shield glisten silver behind that blue arm, and then pulled upward, sighted the turret, and fired.

In his peripheral vision, what little the goggles didn't block, he saw a blue head turn rapidly, trying to find him on the rooftop as the figure in black rose. The battle raged on around them, the woman quickly ran to the others' aid, but distant blue eyes went wide as they locked with his. For a second, he could feel the terror, and for a second, it was his own. Then the Captain smiled and turned back to the fray.

The Winter Soldier sniffed and fired above Captain America's head, focused on his mission.

Not the Same River (Captain America: TWS)
For "Scary Stories" week at LiteraryFanFiction. Rather than writing a spooky Halloween piece, I went with the weirdest part of the prompt: "someone being scared." I was hoping I could write a piece that dealt with notions of fear and terror, and even really deep horrors, without using the traditional scary story framework at all, and without using a perspective character who is terribly prone to fear. To do that I thought about the Marvel movie I felt was the scariest, which had the most disturbing implications.

Apologies to Heraclitus, who "owns" the quote from which I took the title, and to Marvel/Disney, who own the characters and setting.

Small notes on continuity: This story was inspired by events in a private MCU/X-men Cinematic Roleplay in which I am a player, so the actual plot and actions here belong to that game's game master. I do not play the Winter Soldier in that game, nor do I play Captain America, so this was me speculating about what NPCs thought and felt (and in a few cases, did while my character in the scene was distracted). Although I have tried to write this piece in a way that is accessible to the regular Marvel Cinematic Universe and does not include any unique features of our game, I feel dishonest simply trying to pass it off the way it is. While in the scenario in the game, the "woman in black" was actually my fan character, Carly "the Starling" Olvirsson, she is completely irrelevant to the scene except as someone for Steve to react to, and as a result, I endeavored to write her presence in a way that allows readers to read the character as another woman that matters to Steve in the MCU, probably Natasha. You can read the piece however you like, because it literally does not matter who that woman is as long as it's someone Steve is friends with.

Many thanks to Fingrprints for helping me edit during my editing live stream. :) Very helpful with all those -ings :D

Is it as good as my last Carly pencil? No. Does it look more like she's supposed to look? Yeah. See, she's feminine and stuff with short hair.

Done at recess when subbing, and photographed with my 3DS, hence the terrible quality. Posting as proof that I have been drawing.

STOP

DON'T THANK ME
No Thanks Needed by savagebinn .: Read the comments :. Stamp by Beti-Kot Don't thank me Stamp by owleyed-angel

Please don't thank me for llamas, faves, and the like! Thanking people for these things encourages people to do them just for attention, so you'll come to their page and see their work. It's sad that people have made gratitude a liability, but there's nothing to be done.

If you really must show me some kind of gratitude, give me a llama, or engage me in conversation about something you like in the same comment you use to thank me. I am here to make friends, not get pageviews!

Hi! I came to your page when I saw you had given me a llama and read that you have an Ao3 account. I do too and I was wondering what your username was so I could check out your works! :)

Oh hey! :D

I actually have a link to my AO3 in my Info box, but here's the link if you need it: archiveofourown.org/users/flam…

I actually don't have anything on my AO3 that isn't here on dA in my folders, and I haven't put all my work here up on AO3. I forget how far behind I am with my MCU stuff, but I'll likely fix that later this week. So don't worry, if you're looking for my work you haven't missed anything by not finding that. Thank you so much for your interest, though! :D

I need that "STOP" sign as well. I'm getting sick and tired of the "Thanks for this and that and that~!"
How do you made that?

I think you have to be a premium member to make the custom boxes on your profile, and I'm not sure, but you might also need to be a premium member to use the thumb codes for those three stamps I have in there. Try fiddling around on your page to see if you can one, make custom boxes, and two, put thumbs in your descriptoin on the profile box!

The actual big black box I got from CypherVisor

OK, so, first up, I'm American and I'm certified to teach in America. I don't know a lot about the particular freedom of speech legislation in either Japan or Australia. But...

Banning anime or manga in the US outright is impossible because of the first amendment on free expression. Things that have certain kinds of sexual content can be "banned" because of obscenity laws, but that only covers certain kinds of distribution. You can also keep things off broadcast TV, but you can show almost anything on cable or satellite. But the US isn't relevant here. It's just all I know. 

Australia has much tougher rules on violent and obscene content and fewer protections on free speech than the U.S. because of the way their constitution is set up. I am not qualified to give details beyond that. If you are worried about the availability of things in Australia you need to contact international lawyers or Australian free speech activists for information. If you're worried anime is under attack in its home country of Japan, you need to seek out experts on Japan.

Sorry I couldn't be much help.

no thats okay, you've been a big help and i wasn't concerned with it affecting Australia. last time i checked our government isn't concerned so i'm not worried, it's my friends in america that are anime fans that i was concerned about. glad to know it can't be done though ^^ i found the petition but something didn't seem, is George bush still a congressman?

and again sorry to bother you but you seem to know more about this stuff then anyone i know ^^; how have you been?
