Ashes to Ashes Plot-Summary Thing
WARNING: This contains spoilers for Ashes to Ashes, an old CATS fic of mine. And I don't mean just some little spoilers. I mean it contains the entire plot- it's pretty much the outline/summary I wrote for AtA.
I decided to put this up because I likely won't be continuing AtA for a very long time, and people might be wondering what I had in mind for it. ... Or not. Either way, here it is.
THE HISTORY OF THE JELLICLES:
London, 1940
Gangs of cats roam the streets of London. The repeated bombings have destroyed many territories, leading to clashes between cats for hunting grounds. Eventually, the gang leaders decide that they would get more food for everyone if they banded together into one "gang." The leader of the Seraphim, Shemot, is the one to call for this union. The five gangs and their leaders are as follows:
The Seraphim- Shemot; large brown Maine Coon tom; live around Westminister Abbey and are the most disciplined yet peaceful. (Deuteronomy and Gus are Shemot's sons.)
The Laochr

Writing Guide Thingamajigs
So, a long time ago, I decided that I was going to try to write a guide... on writing... for the Cats fandom (and fanfiction.net in general.) While I've long since abandoned that idea, perhaps you'd be interested to see the bits of advice I arrogantly assumed other people would actually want.
On Writing Summaries.
First, ask yourself this:
What do I want to accomplish when I write a summary? What do I want to happen when someone reads my summary?
The answer is: You want them to be interested. A person generally won't read a fic if it has a boring summary, except in certain cases, like if they know you're a good author and will give it a shot anyway. (Good authors, this doesn't mean I'm giving you permission to slack off on these things!)
Now, you hook a reader in much the same way as you hook a fish. (In theory, at least. I have never actually been fishing, and, therefore, have never caught a fish.) You have the bait, and you have the hook that the bait is stuck on.
The Bait- this brie

Having a Blast 4
     The bullying became worse over the next few weeks. Junior refused to stop hanging out with February, but he also refused to tell anyone the reason behind the bruises and scrapes he showed up with after school. It became harder as time went by- after all, he could only tell his mother that he fell down the stairs so many times before she'd realize that something was up.
     Fortunately for him, his parents only started to suspect something when his grades began to go down, about a month and a half into the school year. Unfortunately for him, his father was the one who confronted him about it.
     "Junior," Dr. Lecter began sternly, pacing back and forth in front of the dining room table, "you know that your mother and I want the best for you, and we want you to do your best. However, both of us feel that you haven't been doing so lately." He slid Junior's report card across the table to where his son was s

'Lo there! Just call me Raptor. (I mean, unless I know you in person, in which case I'm not gonna force you to use my username. XD) I enjoy writing, drawing, and various other activities. I'd like to someday have a book published, though we'll see if that ever does happen.
I really ought to post more of my art here.

Favorite genre of music: It changes frequently.
Favorite style of art: ALL OF THEM. ALL THE STYLES. EVERYTHING.
Favorite books/plays: The Great Gatsby, The Book Thief, Harry Potter, Runemarks, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead, Hamlet
Personal Quote: "I'm really overtired right now."
Interests
I was bored and felt like doing a thing to procrastinate on sleeping.

Rules
1. Put your music player on Shuffle.
2. For each question, press the next button for your answer.
3. You must write that song name down, no matter how silly it sounds.

IF SOMEONE ASKS "IS THIS OKAY?" YOU SAY:
Mr. Mistoffelees, from CATS.
(... which I suppose means it's magical? Or perhaps it's more along the lines of "You ought to ask Mr. Mistoffelees, the original conjuring cat, whether or not it's okay.")

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOURSELF?
Re: Your Brains, by Jonathan Coulton.
(Secret's out, guys. I'm a zombie.)

WHAT DO YOU LIKE IN A GUY/GIRL?
Macavity: the Mystery Cat, from CATS.
(i'm dying because i would hate a criminal mastermind pffffft)

HOW DO YOU FEEL TODAY?
The Future Soon, by Jonathan Coulton
(... Mildly accurate? Though I don't think I'm going to be building robots any time soon. Personally, I was hoping for "Loved and Alive" by Jim and the Povolos, since that's quite a lot more accurate.)

WHAT IS YOUR LIFE'S PURPOSE?
Candle In the Wind, by Elton John
(... to live my life like a candle in the wind, apparently. I somehow doubt that's a good thing. I have no desire to die young.)

WHAT IS YOUR MOTTO?
The Flagmaker, 1775, from Songs For a New World by Jason Robert Brown.
(... actually, this is somewhat true, though with writing rather than sewing.)

WHAT DO YOUR FRIENDS THINK OF YOU?
The River Won't Flow, from Songs For a New World by Jason Robert Brown.
(Apparently they think I'll be homeless and unsuccessful?)

WHAT DO YOUR PARENTS THINK OF YOU?
I'm Your Moon, by Jonathan Coulton.
(If taken in a non-romantic sense, this is endearing. If taken in the song's intended tone... more along the lines of creepy. But I suppose it could be done in a non-romantic fashion, in which case it would fit very well.)

WHAT DO YOU OFTEN THINK ABOUT?
Heaven on Their Minds, from Jesus Christ Superstar.
(... That actually sort of fits? Though I'm less angry and Judas-y.)

WHAT IS 2+2?
Roxanne, by the Police.
I totally passed math, guys.

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF YOUR BEST FRIEND?
Jacob and Sons, from Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.
I guess I'll buy them a coat of many colors, then!

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE PERSON YOU LIKE?
Hammers and Strings (A Lullaby), by Jack's Mannequin
Depending on the person, this could actually fit very well. Though I think it'd fit some of my friends better than any sort of romantic interest.

WHAT IS YOUR LIFE STORY?
The Game Is On, by David Arnold & Michael Price.
YES. SHERLOCK THEME IS MY LIFE STORY.

WHAT DO YOU WANT TO BE WHEN YOU GROW UP?
Mad World (the cover by Adam Lambert.)
Er... not so much. But it seems possible?

WHAT DO YOU THINK WHEN YOU SEE THE PERSON YOU LIKE?
Your Song, by Elton John
... AT LAST, ONE THAT FITS.

WHAT WILL YOU DANCE TO AT YOUR WEDDING?
Could We Start Again, Please? from Jesus Christ Superstar.
... I somehow have the feeling that isn't the best song to be played at a wedding. Rather regretful, honestly.

WHAT WILL THEY PLAY AT YOUR FUNERAL?
Memory, from CATS
I honestly don't know how to respond. Do I like it?? Do I not like it??? I don't know. D8
(i was secretly hoping for Stairway to Heaven, but I don't think I have that on my iTunes oops)

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST FEAR?
 Loved and Alive, by Jim and the Povolos.
Apparently my biggest fear is being loved and alive. ... Well, I certainly wasn't expecting that.

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST SECRET?
Doomsday, by Murray Gold.
Yes. My biggest secret is that I am actually Rose Tyler, and I am searching to find the Doctor.
(I just wish that it had been I Am the Doctor because that would've been fantastic oops)

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF YOUR FRIENDS?
Just the Way You Are, by Billy Joel (cover by Scott McIntyre)
... asdjasdlfsdf this actually fits awwwww. (though in a non-romantic sense, I suppose.)

WHAT IS YOUR NICKNAME?
Super Trouper, by ABBA.
(... at least it sort of makes sense?)

WHAT WILL YOU NAME THIS POST?
Message In a Bottle, by the Police.

  • Listening to: music box versions of various songs
  • Reading: Fahrenheit 451, Squire
  • Watching: Doctor Who, Firefly
  • Playing: the piano
  • Eating: souls
  • Drinking: the blood of my enemies

I have been well! Little of this, little of that, starting a new musical, having to relearn how to tap dance. Eugh.
How have you been, my friend?

Ooh, sounds fun. What musical?
I've been doing pretty well! Been busy on Tumblr, RPing and getting involved in some vlogs - I'm not sure if you're familiar with the musical Next to Normal, but a group of fans are getting together to make a series of vlogs from the POVs of the characters, and I'll be one of the script writers. :) So that's pretty exciting! Learning to drive, getting ready for college, all that kind of thing.
