"Patterns"

I am working on a new piece of fiction. Its working title is "Patterns," and I don't know how long it'll be. So far it's about the length of a single Night Switch update, but I intend to write much, much more. It's a first-person account of the ordinary. This will be my first stab at doing something Aria-esque, weaving mono no aware and slice of life to hopefully produce something hiiringu.

The speaker is a member of her college's anime club; her boyfriend is its vice president. In "Patterns" the characters will exchange banter, touch on issues of philosophy, religion, love, and friendship, and attempt to derive meaning from the anime they exchange—whether they succeed or fail, hopefully, something will have been gained for them. Meanwhile our thus-far nameless speaker will work to maintain a happy relationship with the vice president, and while this won't be a strenuous or dramatic work I expect that there will be some obstacles and some struggle.

I mainly bring this up because I want to somehow 'make it official' that I am working on this. I'll also probably post snippets of drafts here at points.
:D
