Campfires

It's my first fanfic in 12 years.  It's the longest fanfic I believe I've ever written.  It's the first fanfic I've ever posted to AO3; previous ones are all rotting in the Pit of Voles.

And it's about warrior poison frogs. >_>

But I am damn proud of my nearly 19000 words (I am two words shy!) so if you want to get really hella confused, give it a read.  It's based on a show called "Kulipari: An Army of Frogs" on Netflix, which bit me HARD.  I have since gotten the books and this fic was written with the books at my side, carefully referencing and re-referencing the source material like I was writing a term paper.

But it's a fanfic about warrior poison frogs.

Did I mention one has a bright red mohawk?

Feels good to write again, though.

Hooray for writing again! *happy dance* \o/

I've eyeballed that series on Netflix, but haven't quite brought myself to watch it - might have to give it a try once real life slows down again :)

It's fantastic and I love it and I am sort of obsessed. Kind of. A little. >_>

^_^ I'm okay! Kept really busy with work. By the time I get home, I'm too tired to do anything but lurk. (And apparently write fanfic.) I also have a boyfriend, so that eats a chunk of my time, too. Getting ready for TFCon Chicago, too. Lots of work to do and no brainpower to do it with.

I cannot believe I haven't posted since last Christmas. Wow.

Yay fanfic and yay writing! :D

I'll give it a read after I've watched the series. I added that to my to-watch list a few days ago (right before i saw this post! :D)

Hee!

It differs a little from the show because I got the books, as the second and third book are (very well) condensed into the last four episodes. So about five or six battles in the second book, for example, got squished into one epic one, versus it being a "wear them down before going for the killing strike" sort of thing.

So while I reference some things which happen in the book that are changed slightly in the show, the overall plot is exactly the same. Only two major things are different that I actually like *better* in the show but since I was going with book canon, well... s'all good.

Let me know what you think!
