Spoilers: Up to current arc.
Summary:Do we ever get a second chance? An option to redo what we did wrong? And if we did, would we know what to do when it was given to us? When a mistake threatens to cost Ichigo the thing he never realized was most important, how far will he go to get it back?
Gravely injured, hovering at the brink of death, Rukia remains trapped within her mind, a prisoner to her own inner demons, while Ichigo, determined to restore her, faces not only her own darkness but the fears and illusions in his own heart by journeying into her mind itself to find her and bring the pieces of her soul back together.

Wow, I really haven't posted here in awhile, that's a bit unusual for me. But then, life's been crazy. Like... REALLY crazy, not the good kind of crazy.

I work at Red Lobster now, as I'm sure a lot of you know -- esp. considering several of you have come by to eat while I'm on shift. XD -- which is a good job. Cept... I only get like 20 hours a week. And if I was making like 15$/hour that'd be fine. But at 8.50? No so cool. So if we do our little math formula, it goes as follows -

$400/month income - $700/month expenses = -300$

-$300 - 1200$ credit card debt - 400$ loan debt - 800$ owed to ex - 400$ owed to Daddy = 3600$ of debt. Yeah.... not so good. Now granted, I don't have to pay ALL of the credit card off at once. But still. And this wouldn't be so bad if the IRS hadn't lost my taxes for last year so now I have to RE-file. And I was counting on that money for Katsu, so I'm not real sure what Im' gonna do.

Sure, I take commissions, and I make a bit of money there, but I can only do so much. I'm trying to get a second job, and hopefully I can find one in the next couple of days and such and even if I can barely afford Katsu, then I would at least have more money coming in. And I'm filing my taxes for this year tomorrow with my CPA and hopefully if I do them online they can get in and file them electronically so it'll only take me like 10 days for me to get my refund. Which would really help me out.

I kindof hate to do it, since I promised people I would be more active and post more and stuff, and I just got OFF of hiatus, but I'm thinking about taking another hiatus from Poly. Not a full one, just a semi-hiatus. I'd still make my minimum post requirement, but at least that would mean I'd have one less thing to worry about while I get back on track.

Cuz... yeah, living off of salads and rice sucks, man. I'm so protein-deficient I'm about to pass out all over the frickin place.

So here's the NejiHina entry for [livejournal.com profile] 30_kisses, since I already posted the IchiRuki one. This one's a bit different from most of the ones I write in a couple ways. First, it's first-person, which I almost never write. I don't really like it, it always feels less like fanfiction and more like I'm just typing a post in here. Beyond that, it's also not really a happy fic, it's rather sad and bittersweet, which I don't tend to do. Oh well, that's the point of a challenge, ne?

Ok, so you know what happens when you put lasagna uncovered in the microwave? That lovely splattering of gorey pasta guts that explodes all over the inside of said box? Yeah. That's kindof a good representation for the way my LIFE is going right now.

OK, so we'll start at the beginning. Neko is driving Kan-chan home to Boone. Enter other car in front of her + brakes slipping + wet road = Neko in fender-bender. Nothing that bad, busted out my headlight, the other guy wasn't even dented. Anyway, that in itself wasn't a problem. Because neither of us wanted to file a report or anything. So we would have just gone on our merry way. Except for the cop in the other lane. Who saw it. And helpfully came over to check our licenses and advise us of stuff. Enter problem. Neko's license and plate are both revoked. Why? Because of idiots who can't file paperwork. Thus Neko is now unable to drive. Which leaves Neko pissed the fuck off, and Kan-chan stuck in Raleigh when she needs to be in Boone for her classes.

Gee, dont' I feel like a fucking moron. I personally don't care that much what sort of trainwreck my own life implodes into. I've seen it coming for awhile, not that surprisingly. However, I HATE dragging someone else's life into the fucking mud along the way.

So yeah, anyone who has any ideas on how to help that DON'T involve clubbing myself to death, please step forward.

Man, I feel like I need to post the obligatory "work sucks" sort of rant here. Except for the fact that...work doesn't suck. Well, at least not in that traditional "cock goes here, suck it good" sort of sense. I love my job, really I do. I've wanted to work in this field since I can remember, and overall I feel the practice I work for is a "good place". That being the case, why the hell does she insist on taking my hours away and making me telemarket and bother people? She being my manager/administrator, Debbie. Who lives in the wonderfully fluffy and shiney place known as "Debbie-land", where everything is happy and perfect. I kinda wish I lived there, it must have nice CRACK in it. Anyway, so they love my phone/people skills. Kinda ironic considering how much contempt I hold for the average meat-sack walking down the street. I can't help but find it horrifically amusing how they see the diplomacy that I've busted my ass to develop and interpret that into "people skills" when it's really just "Neko's way of dealing w/idiots and ignorance". As in, "treat everyone with the same sort of basic reasoning as you would a 5-yr old throwing a temper tantrum" sort of reasoning. And really, HOW hard is it? Srsly, how difficult is it to calmly and rationally look someone in the eye and say "I'm sorry that you are upset, Mr. Smith. However, as you can see here, you signed the form authorizing us to do the x-rays and you declined the written estimate of cost. If you'd like, I'd be happy to have Dr. Vet speak to you before check-out, perhaps he can explain things better or help us find a solution."? It really isn't that hard, despite what people seem to think. -___-. But NO~, apparently I'm the only one who can manage that. And I'm also the only one who can get away with the old "Hi Ms. Doe, we haven't seen Pancake in 5 years, but I just thought I'd call you and see if you'd like to come and see us again" line. Since obviously they must have simply forgotten to come in since there's no logical reason why they would have NOT done so for the last 5 years. But, I digress. Old topic: my lack of hours. That would be because she TOOK THEM OFF OF THE SCHEDULE. That's right, she took them away. And why? So that I can come in, on my own time, and call people. *See above example*. Which at first seems alright. Hey, I get to make my own frickin hours!? Score!! But noooo~~~. 30 pages of callbacks =/= 35hrs of work. Actually...it equals about SIX hours of work. And 6 hrs of work =/= a rent check. *sigh*. At least this week Heather didn't WANT my hours, so she gave them back. But srsly. How the hell does this woman expect me to EAT when I don't work? I mean, I like vacation as much as the next person. But I don't want it ALL the damn time~! Especially not when I have overdue bills to pay and CON to go to next month.

Alright, so since this LJ is for fanworks, I might as well POST some, huh? So I guess I'll start with ADROS. Well, what I've got done of it. ADROS is my NejiHina fic, and is my baby. That means don't flame it or I'll hurt you. Constructive criticism is certainly welcome, as long as it isn't a "why are you doing X, it's weird" or some other crap like that. So anyway, here's ADROS.

A Darkened Ray of Sunshine (ADROS) is a currently-in-progress Naruto fanfiction that centers around the NejiXHinata pairing. It is set several years post-Timeskip, at a time when Neji is 19 and Hinata 18 years old, respectively. The basic premise of the story hinges on Hinata's journey as she runs away from Konoha and her feelings for Neji, and finds herself cast into a very different role. Floundering, when an offer of dreams fulfilled comes from a most unexpected source, she grabs onto it and makes a new start. But all of that is thrown into chaos by the arrival of the very thing she sought to escape. Neji.
I warn all prospective readers that ADROS is not necessarily a happy story. It's certainly not tragic, but it's definitely bittersweet. Unlike most stories involving Konoha shinobi, this one is actually set in Otogakure. It also portrays the Sound village in a much different light, peeling back the layers of secrecy and showing it as it really is. A fanciful Babylon of sorts, a kingdom of tremulous hopes and dreams woven with darkness and poised on the brink of destruction. ADROS follows Neji and Hinata's fates as they become inexorably entwined in the final days of Otogakure and paints a picture not only of the fate of the world, but of the struggle of the lives that are thrown into the midst of a brutal war. And that's what ADROS is. A story about war, and the struggle to live and survive within it. That being said, please enjoy the fic.
