In which a plan quickly dissolves into chaos... )

a/n: Sorry for the INSANELY LONG HIATUS. I suck. A lot. My goal is to try and pump out another chapter this weekend. I'd like to push through this masquerade ball all at once-ish. I hate leaving you guys hanging in the middle of this wackiness!

I hope you guys were surprised/pleased with Lila's fiance! I honestly cannot remember how that thought process worked out exactly, but I kind of love them together a lot? Like, I didn't get to do much with them here, but I actually think they have the potential to be super adorable. I also tried really hard with Lila's characterization - to make her still sort of toe that line of being genuinely good hearted and still vaguely manipulative? Hope it worked out. I also love the moment where she questions Helga's feelings for Arnold. It's an important part of this story! The idea that Helga's love for Arnold may be something closer to a sense of obligation or habit at this point in time. She's pretty much the only person who doesn't seem to realize how much he's changed. I mean, she sees it, but she hasn't fully thought out what that means and isn't really trying to reconcile who he used to be with the man he's become. Um. Yes. Thoughts.

Also, regarding the bits of French - if any of it is misspelled/fucked up feel free to correct me! I copied the foods directly from how they appear in the menus in Dinner for Four/Valentine's Day. So... they ought to be okay, but cartoons y'know?

I have a lot more journal entries I'd kind of like to put up, but these are all the ones related to the Darkverse storyline so I lumped them into one.

They're vaguely in chronological order, but I honestly haven't fleshed out the whole Darkverse story yet soooo... things are subject to change.

They aren't friends, but they're both in the same boat and it's not a fun one. I'm honestly not sure if Slater would approach Britta without prompting, but I wanted Britta to be the one who was more unsure of what to do and so this worked best.

Also I slipped in Britta/Troy at the end because LOLOLOLOL SEKRIT OTP.

a/n: WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH ME.

Okay so this is my response to rereading the original beginning of what would have been the Darkverse storyline (called Dancing in the Middle of Time) which is pretty much an awful beginning and I hate it forever and always.

But I kind of really loved Gerald trying to jog Arnold's memory so I was like: I WANT TO REWRITE IT. ONLY I'M GOING TO MAKE IT 110% GAYER!

No, I'm serious. I wanted to rewrite a scene except add in more gay. Which I think I accomplished! So. Points for me! But then once Helga showed up I was like: "Hmmm threesome?" and then the story ended without anything actually happening.

ANYWAY, if you're interested in the Darkverse than I hope you enjoy this because it's probably actually canon because sometimes I like writing fluffy things between characters who aren't romantically involved or whatever.

a/n: Probably I should be working on not-this, but ehhhhhhhhh. This chapter's been a long time coming and it's not even that long! I've mostly just been dicking around because there's a lot of Phoebe/Gerald banter and even though I love them I find them sort of boring to write for. I had a lot of fun with that last little snippet of a scene and yes, they'll be more explanation coming up in the next chapter about what Helga is up to and possibly you will get to find out where Arnold is!

This is why I wanted to know about the whole "van Buren" issue! IT IS IMPORTANT TO MY PLOT!

I am so ready for it to be two weeks from now. :(

ps I totally forgot to watch Victorious, but honestly I do not really care. Was it any good? WAS TRINA AWESOME (haha trick question - TRINA IS ALWAYS AWESOME)?!

In which there are some serious discussions... )

a/n: 5106 words! This is MOST DEFINITELY the longest chapter I have put out.

Okay, so I have been planning for Helga-Gerald and Arnold-Phoebe talks for like EVER. IT WAS VERY IMPORTANT TO ME for the BFFs to be like: "You guys this is a terribly unhealthy plan and you are being unfair to one another." Because... they ARE. I hope that the story is illustrating this idea that Helga/Arnold at this point is a VERY BAD idea on account of Helga basing her whole existence around him and Arnold being so focused on his parents that he neglects everything and everyone else around him to a point?

I had ALSO long ago planned that sleazy Wolfgang scene wherein HE BETRAYS THEM, because even though sometimes Wolfgang can be not-an-asshole and offer up a ride or whatever, he is still very much looking out for number one. And like REWARDS, MAN. He could use some extra coinage!

Oh man, that last scene. I LOVE the visual I get from it. Helga is so smug and aware. I also was INCHES away from ending the scene with: "Get in the car loser, we're going shopping." But I restrained myself for YOU, dear audience.

BTW, all the iCarly ones take place in my Lost!Spencer futureverse. Basically the gang has grown apart, but have to reunite to save Spencer who has been kidnapped or something. I will never write this story, but I like playing inside the universe!

And my Helga/Wolfgang one is from my dark!verse that will also never be written, but that I enjoy thinking about from time to time.

a/n: Was planning on this being a little longer, but I'm kind of debating about how long they're going to stick around Gerald/Phoebe's. I was originally going to have them stay this night and then leave sometime the next day, but now I'm wondering if maybe I should rush the timeline more? But I also think Arnold deserves a good night's sleep. A-and if I change up the timeline than other things will go awry that are counting on certain events happening on certain days. :\

Okay, so Phoebe's tangent about Hot Air was an OH SO OBVIOUS reference to Pyrus Japonica's Hot Air. Also, I promise to explain the 'Helga is kidnapped' thing better next chapter. I know I sort of glossed over the logic for it in this chapter. Hopefully when they sit down to explain shit to Gerald they will also explain things to you, dear readers.

ETA: Also, I am sorry that things have gotten much less action-y as of late. This is because I am SETTING SHIT UP. Also, because I am not good at being mean to my leads.

I really do want to keep this story going. Like, it's going to be SO EPIC. But I have to write it all first, which is a bummer. Stories should just pop out of my head fully formed. I shouldn't have to write them down. :(

a/n: This was difficult to write. Because I have problems with Jason shooting Eggs and not being punished for it, even if that is Jason's LIFE. Getting away with shit.

I also was completely ambivalent to Eggs/Tara and I still can't watch Season One without breaking out into fits of "FUCK YOU AMY." because she is CRAZY and spouts SO MUCH BULLSHIT. So even though I didn't really like their respective love interests, they DID and I had to keep that in mind. And I couldn't get mushy, because there is way too much baggage and angry Tara-ness and dead people between them for things to get mushy.

Fandom/Universe: Hey Arnold!
Character(s): Helga, Arnold, Gerald
Rating: K+

Notes: Don't click until you read the note below!


Part One. Arnold, Gerald and Helga set out for adventure. )

a/n: So. A BILLION years ago I became utterly fixated on Hey Arnold! Today, I still love it way more than I should. I guess there's just something about the show that will never stop striking some chord within me. It's more than just loving Helga/Arnold now. Hey Arnold! has become a second home. It's a part of me.

I fell in love with Hey Arnold! in the seventh grade. When I was little more than a baby, really.

I wrote my very first fic then. Not just my first fanfic - my very first story that I had actually sat down and typed out all for myself. It's in script format. Has little to no capitalization. Spelling atrocities abound. Grammar fail. It was all set to the Spirit Soundtrack (HERE!), because even though I hated that movie, I managed to find an entirely different plotline in the Soundtrack. It's also supposed to be my own interpretation of what The Jungle Movie would have been like and I was CONVINCED that I had basically produced a flawless script and that probably Craig Bartlett was going to ask if he could use it when he actually made the movie, because it was JUST THAT GOOD.

It's been... about seven years since then. I've grown. I mean, I'm still immature and obsessed with a silly cartoon, but I'm okay with that. Also, I capitalize stuff now! Sometimes to the point where THAT'S ALL I DO.

But I think it's about time I shared that very first story. Despite all of it's terrible, awful flaws, it still manages to make me love it.

So if you would like to see my wee beginnings as a writer and as a girl who loves HA! click the link. If you're going to be stupid and try to point out the bad stuff (which is ALL OF IT) just back out now. I'm not posting this for you guys as much as I'm posting it for me. But if you think it's kind of adorable in a weirdly embarrassing and childish way then go ahead and tell me so! Because that's what it is! :3

Is that your ghost or are you really there? )

a/n: Man, I suck. I was supposed to work on Trying, but I got um…. sidetracked? Whatever, I’ve been playing around with an idea like this for a while now. I was planning on making a one-shot Harold/Rhonda set in my Darkverse. Instead, I think this is going to be a 3-5 chapter fic that’s Harold/Rhonda in the Darkverse, but with an emphasis on Rhonda and love and death and love/life after death and teamwork and sex and distant hopes and just… whatever I think fits in, basically.

I will go back to Trying soon! Like, I’m not going to try and finish this first or anything silly like that.

Also, the timeline of this is gonna be weird. Next chapter is gonna be what was happening two years ago. And the one following that should be from the present. At least in theory.

I actually didn't plan for Harold to be dead when I started this. It just sort of happened that way. :(

Seriously, fucking awesome show/manga (I've read through all the manga, but have so far only seen the first episode of the anime, but SO PRETTY OMG). Death the Kid is totally my favorite and it's so obvious that he would be, because he is obsessed with SYMMETRY and IS A BADASS and HAS MAN RINGS XLKJLFKJDSLKFJSDLFKSJFLSDFJL. The mood set does not have enough Tsubaki though. I love her. SO MUCH.

LOL, did you like my little Strangetown reference? An asshole named Buzz. It's not a super obvious connection or anything, but I needed a name for the guy and that's what sprang to mind.

Haha, got questions? ASK AWAY. I know the flashback stuff was a little bit vague in some parts. I can't promise I'll answer everything, but don't be afraid to ask anyway!

Also, WOLFGANG! I have a really weird affection for him. And if you're worried that he's being too nice here - don't worry! He's still kind of a dick. You'll see. XD

On the upside (or downside depending on the kind of person you are) the next chapter is probably going to be completely full of flashbacks! We shall relive the experience right there with Arnold. Huzzah!

Oh god, you don't know how badly I want to go through each and everyone of these chapters and point all the ridiculous canon throwbacks and symbolism, because I keep doing adding them! I DON'T EVEN TRY TO.

Also, I told you they'd changed. This story is mostly about them finding themselves again. Also, ADVENTURE! Seriously, there's so many awesome things that I've got planned for this story. I keep sort of going 'round in circles about some of the plottier details though. I'll figure it out soon though.

And La Corazon! <33333 Yes I am totally writing a TJM-ish story at a totally non-TJM time. Or well, TJM happened in this story, but Arnold didn't find ANYTHING. No evidence that his parents are alive or dead or had ever existed at all. And this is sort of the end result of that. It's an Arnold who lost his hope and a Helga who got her life stuck in Arnold's leaving. They're both very stunted emotionally. Arnold gave up on a lot of things and Helga hasn't really formed her own identity. But they'll get there!

And the next chapter includes some answers! They're on a road trip after all - time for Arnold to explain some things.

The urban legend was totally spur of the moment and basically added because of this.
