title: Pillowklok

Dethklok is a melodeath band that saw phenomenal success and the celebrity spotlight cast upon them. They discover their manager has fans too and decide to adjust a day dedicated to the fans accordingly.

200 hits on Ao3! I know those are small-time numbers. Given the size of the fandom and general low interest in non-romantic fiction, I consider that an accomplishment.

#original-work that started as #ainokusabi #fanfic

While it isn't writing I am proud of anymore, I did bother to typeset Mnemosyne's Heretic. With a home printer, some printer paper, two staples, and scotch tape (to reinforce the spine), I printed a physical copy of Mnemosyne's Heretic for myself. These are the photos I've taken.

#invidious

I don't think I will be commissioning translations for my #metalocalypse #fanfiction soon. But the character Charles Offdensen makes me think about 'tu' ("you") vs 'vous' ("you", formal). He might be the first character I've encountered that'll cause a single conversation to change from 'vous' to 'tu'.

Charles describing his job:

Last year, I found a tumblr post that tabulated data on pairings on Ao3. Already, Ao3 counts the sexual relationship in works such as male/female, male/male, female/female, none at all (Gen), or Other. In addition to the "type" of pairing, the list on tumblr tabulated the race.

There are only two races counted though: white (European?) and everyone else. (POC = "people of color", colored people; might as well be Korean, Chinese, or Japanese considering the list.)

Sometimes, it is hard to tell what politically correct people are really going for.

What were pre-modern methods to verify coins for authentic metal composition?

I had found this link which details the parallels between metal assaying and the methods in which inquisitors distinguished witches from innocent women. The link hypothesizes "witch" was a codeword for counterfeit coin.

https://stolenhistory.net/threads/the-church-inquisition-did-not-persecute-people-but-counterfeit-coins.5472/

Deeper in the discussion, I found a book titled "The Assayer's Guide" (1884) which documents now obsolete methods of metals assaying. (Nowadays, an electronic scanner detects types of metals. So no need to damage the coin with heat or needles.) Even though this book is well into public domain by now, the free copy has paywalled pages. (lol)

#fanfic #monnaielibre

I commissioned a French translation for Cephalon Stallman a while ago, but I haven't gotten to publishing it until recently. They are temporarily available at:

https://likho.neocities.org/pages/drafts/1.html

https://likho.neocities.org/pages/drafts/2.html

This translation is by Aur&lie on ─čchange.

The drafts section of the site is where I'll be posting incomplete works or translations under review. These French translations are on that section as I still want feedback from native French readers before considering them complete.

The end result was that instead of countering through brute-force and eradicating Area 9 (Ceres), Midas simply announced that their residential records would be deleted.
Ai no Kusabi Vol 1, Page 63

Without a single loss of life -- they (Ceres) had won their rights, their freedom, and their independence.
Ai no Kusabi Vol 1, Page 63

Dana-Bahn itself was constructed from military technology not of Tanagura.
Ai no Kusabi Vol 8, Page 145

The near end of the series introduces a large structure within Ceres called Dana-Bahn that was supposedly pivotal during the independence movement. But it exists as the stage to end the story. From then on, there is not much content to scrutinize for the history within the world. A supposedly bloodless event and a major construction of military technology had me speculate there was a major discrepancy between the stated history and what had actually happened.

This idea manifested in my first #fanfics of Ai no Kusabi (Prologue of Two Opposites and Life In Midas) as the memories of Iason tell a much different story than an online article from Midas.

The platinum blonde Aire. Lean's blue-black hair and ice-blue eyes. Sheila's fiery red hair and amber eyes. Ghil's unblemished white hair and scarlet eyes. Health's straight, honey blonde hair and brown eyes. Raven's silver hair and gray eyes. No matter how many years passed, every face remained forever young in his mind.
Ai no Kusabi Vol 2, Page 111

When Riki reminisces about his block mates from Guardian, their described hair colors line up with the ranks in Tanagura (Blondie, Platina, Ruby, Sapphire). The only rank not described is Jade, and Riki is the analogue to Onyx in this group.

I thought about this exerpt and the other ties between Ceres and Tanagura. It was one of the things that inspired my #fanfic in that Riki was the clone of an Onyx that led a rebellion to found Ceres.

That was all before Midnight Illusion's translation even started. So it might be one of the ways my fanfic will break off from canon.
