You can friend me if you want, but you don't have to. The only things I put under lock are personal stuff. Most of my old fanworks are at withloveonly.

I have mostly abandoned LJ as of late, I lurk on Tumblr now, also under Vaulted The Wall as well as having an infrequently updated Dreamwidth at Exitmouse, which is also public.

There's also still Deviantart, though I tend to forget about it for months at a time. My plurk can be found here.

This account is still tied to my primary e-mail, so I can be reached by PMs if you need to get ahold of me for some reason. ♥

So this year I have opted to not do Yuletide as I am omfgslammed with work and I don't want to sign up for a commitment I may run the risk of not being able to keep, but I do want to keep the creativity flowing. I normally draw but I have been in a wordy mood lately, so here's this instead.


Open requests for all of my buddies from now until the 24th of December. I will do my best to write a drabble (100 words) for any series/pairing/etc of your choosing, and try to even hold back on posting them until the 25th of December! Any prompt, any pairing, any rating, any series, any genre, crossovers, basically a free-for-all. I retain the right to veto something if I really don't think I can do it (No Eridan/Feferi EVER.) but I will tell you upfront if that is the case. I am not going to bother listing fandoms because the list would be longer than the total number of requests. Basically if I've ever posted about it on Tumblr, Plurk, or have an icon for it, or you know I've previously enjoyed it? Have at it. I might leave fandoms but I never really fall out of love with a series.

Multiple requests are OK since I'm pretty sure I'll have a grand total of two takers.

Comment via whatever way you feel comfortible with to let me know, I'll be collecting them all in a notepad file to keep track of 'em so it doesn't matter if half of the comments are on LJ and the others on Tumblr and a few on Plurk or whatever.

I'm hitting up Vancouver BC with my number one homeslice soul sister, Manda. We're gonna go up Saturday morning and come back Sunday morning, and while we're going to visit a bro in the area in particular that's still a lot of time!

So, I ask my Canadian homies - anyone who knows the Vancouver area have any suggestions for sigh seeing or stores that CANNOT BE MISSED?

So I'm at three shots of vodka o'clock, but the point remains! I'm sorry I've kind of abandoned LJ. The funny thing is I still use it for gaming pretty religiously aside from some Dreamwidth stuff I have going with Azy, and I always check my friendslist, but yeah. I have a plurk now as well as a tumblr, and those have kind of become my go-to girls for both art and social interaction, but let's have a look-see at what's been going on since the last update, which I am just going to rely on memory for and not actually check.

I've dropped a few games, joined a few more, had a one-sided emotional fling and got a pay raise in the meantime. Which doesn't really make up for my hours cut but I keep reminding myself: I am consistently employed in a job I don't hate that pays for insurance as well as gives me a MINIMUM of 32 hours a week WHILE making above minimum wage, which is more than most RPers can say. The downside is I always feel so out of the loop and left out because I am off earning my daily bread. But hey at least I am not a Libertarian. (Sorry to the liber- you know, no. I am sorry you are libertarian. Not that I said that.) I also remain NOT Orson Scott Card, and that being the only thing Devin ever asked of me I feel I'm doing pretty good as long as I continue with that.

I went to the midnight showing of Harry Potter Deathly Hollows 2, it was all that I dreamed and more. I also fell entirely in love with Captain America which I can only describe as similar to MY LITTLE PONY in nature (That is, the general initial reaction when you say IT'S AWESOME can be "Really? My Little Pony?" then, three episodes in, "MY LITTLE PONY!!!! ♥ ♥ ♥" - when viewing Captain America, Amanda and so many others were initially (unsure) regarding it. "Really? Captain America?" but after viewing, it was all "CAPTAIN AMERICA!!!!! ♥ ♥ ♥" Chris Evans, I am sorry I ever doubted you.

Even if 90lb Asthmatic Steve Rogers kinda hits Uncanny Valley.

Since Amanda's back in the USA we've been spending at least one day every weekend hanging out, usually with at least Sushi-Kittens-Coffee (there's a pet store between coffee and sushi, so we usually walk by and peer at the kittens in the window) though lately they have sold all of their kittens!!!! so I wonder what new animal they will have in their window pen.

I've also been playing Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep again - I can't say I'm replaying it as I only finished Ven's quest and started Terra's last time, but picking it back up again I've found I can handle Terra a lot better. Before I always got frustrated because I favor the lightning-fast lighter hitters (why I can never play God of War no matter how much male gamers may masturbate to it. Myth ARRRRGHGJKLASKL;JS' aside, KRONOS MOVES LIKE MOLASSES. I CANNOT HANDLE IT. WHAT IS WRONG WITH HIM. IS HE UNDER THE EFFECT OF A 'SLOW' SPELL?) and Terra is SO SLOW. Picking the game back up after several months of letting it idle made me realize, Terra is actually FASTER than most vidya game protagonists, it's just that I was comparing him to Endgame Ven, who is the FASTEST of the three protagonists, and basically a spidermonkey on pixie sticks. Without that bias, it's much easier to cope with his speed, and I suddenly want to play Terra in something somewhere. Hell, not even Terra. LINGERING WILL I want to play somewhere.

Either way, Terra and Ven are now down, and I am free to play Aqua. Save the best for last, baby. She is so amazing. I ship her and Cinderella too. Cinderella brings all the keyblade masters to the yard, apparently.

Alright, I ran out of interest to update this thing now.

I have seen this all over my flist so fine I'll do it too.

Disassociative Affect Diagnostic

okay this shit is freaky IT IS IN MY BRAIN.

You have a poetic sensibility and an ability to see beyond the day to day. You often seem to be living in a higher realm, or to be not-of-this-earth. Occasionally you imagine interior lives for friends and associates that are near-complete fabrications based on your fears or hopes for the future. You are often not aware of your own feelings. You have a strong sense of right and wrong, and because of this are often disappointed. Despite what can sometimes be a destructive inward-turning anger, you are very gentle. You are sometimes a bit out of touch with the ebb and flow of modern life. If your behavior is out of synch with your moral values, a severe psychic disturbance can result. Because connectivity is so important to you, you can become quiet and sulky if you feel that others around do not understand your point of view.

Then again, like Horoscopes, be vague enough to apply to a lot of people.

Hey. Hey internet. Guess what I saw today. Go ahead, guess.

I will wait for you.


That's right.

Baby let's talk SUCKERPUNCH. I will attempt to make this as nonspoilery as possible, though I cannot vouch for the comments and humbly request if anyone has anything spoilery to add plz be whitetexting it? ♥

First off what I didn't like about it, to get it out of the way: The movie has about as much exploitation as you'd expect. Seriously, just look at the costumes. The film does put a lampshade hanging on it with the characters mentioning shallow exploitative shit so at least it's self aware in that aspect. I can forgive a lot of faults in a story that acknowledges he faults are there.

That aside.

There is actually a lot less over-the-top oooohhhsexytimes moments. You are lead to believe they happen off-screen, but instead the movie cuts to GIRLS FIGHTING GIANT MECHANIZED SAMURAI or DRAGONS or ZOMBIE ROBOT NAZIS (none of these are hyperbole. They actually exist. However awesome you are imagining it, I promise you, you are not imagining awesome enough). This movie has to be the most lesbiansubtexttastic films I have seen in a while as well - there is no handsome young male lead to play love interest like most chick team action flicks. The only men in the movie are either total scumbags or not worth note. At the same time, the movie doesn't attempt to beat you over the head with the lesbian subtext. There is no ooohhhhsexytimes we're totally gonna make out cue Katy Perry (there is a brief Queen musical interlude, however). The most physical contact the girls have outside of WE'RE BATTLING TOGETHER WOO is they hug each other. It is girls (in, yes, skimpy outfits but no more so than roller derby really) bonding and fighting alongside each other. God, I ship all of the things. But especially Babydoll/Sweet Pea.

While Babydoll (Emily Browning, in the center there) is not a 100% silent protagonist, she manages to drive the story with very little speaking lines. I'm fairly certain she doesn't say a word within the first fifteen minutes. Those first fifteen minutes also manage to jam-pack an hour or more of buildup with a very artistic, very FUCKING CREEPY musical montage to (what I believe is a cover of) Annie Lennox's Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This). It goes up there in the prestigious spots of one of my favorite movie openings of all time, along with X-Men Origins: Wolverine and Watchmen. Which makes sense, as Zach Snyder did Watchmen as well.

Also I have a love of Surreal Fucking Bullshit. Seriously, if you weren't aware of it, I have an unhealthy love of this. I love crazyass dream sequences especially. I want my movies to double as ART.

SuckerPunch FUCKING DELIVERS. I suspect Inception was supposed to get three crates worth of Surreal Bullshittery but instead two of the crates got lost in shipping and one arrived half-empty and they just managed to stretch it really far. Those two and a half missing crates of Surreal Bullshittery arrived at SuckerPunch by mistake and instead of forwarding them to the correct address SuckerPunch shrugged and decided to not question its good fortune and overload their movie with an overabundance of SURREAL BULLSHITTERY and I FUCKING LOVE EVERY SECOND OF IT.

Now admittedly I know I have a problem with most of my media that I love in that I tend to see a deeper story that was never intended. I let my love of metaphor get away from me and I make it into something greater than it was, and I do fear that may be the case of SuckerPunch. It's entirely possible I was not watching the same movie as everyone else, but I don't care, because the movie I watched was nothing short of beautiful.

Hey internet, it's my birthday today! You know what I want? I really want Brittany and Santana from Glee to win Round 16 of this! (Game 2.1, which is the third set)

Sure they're already in the lead with 58%, but I would really love it if everyone voted just to make certain! The polls close on the 22nd, so this would be a great birthday gift for me! :D

Amanda's present arrived yesterday, and that cheered me up. So did Homestuck, honestly, things are so INTENSE in it.

Got a new printer with mom on Thursday as a birthday present and am gonna go get some paper for it today.

First real day without Carole was today. I only saw her on Fridays, so.

I avoided the office as long as I could, and when I had to go in I just sat down in the office and cried for a few minutes as quietly as I could. At least I preemptively made sure not to wear make-up aside from mascara today, just in case. (That is ALL GONE now)

Lori was the one to clear out Carole's locker yesterday. Melissa pointed out after Lori left that the shoes under the lockers were Carole's too and to pass that on to Lori (as Melissa doesn't work Fridays). I wasn't able to, the words kept dying in my throat. I guess it isn't like they're going anywhere.

The May 4th issue of The Stranger last year had an article called "To Be Or Not To Be?" in it, written by Brendan Kiley. It was mainly about suicide, relating to the railing that was being put up for the Aurora Bridge (#2 most popular suicide jumping location in the USA, if you didn't know). There was one like in particular in it, though, that's stuck with me all day today.

A total of 13,339 people died in King County in 2008. (The data for 2009 hasn't been tabulated yet.) Sixteen percent of them—2,121 people—became cases for the county Medical Examiner's Office: 85 were murdered, 163 died in traffic accidents, and 210 committed suicide. Of the suicides, 93 shot themselves. (In the same year, there were 45 gun-related murders: If you're going to die by gunfire in these parts, you'll most likely be pulling the trigger.)

This morning, at my work, we got a call saying one of the women who works Friday-Saturday-Sunday would not be in this weekend. Later Amanda (who took the call) said that she was told that the person couldn't say what the exact problem was, but she was in the hospital. My manager Amanda, just recently suffered the loss of her mother from a stroke, and was not in a good state after getting that call about our coworker as it was very similar to the one she got about her mother just a few days before she died.

It turns out the reason the coworker was in the hospital was not for sickness, which we had just assumed.

She shot herself.

She committed suicide.

It wasn't instantly fatal - she lived long enough to be taken to the hospital (why whoever called did not want to disclose why she was there). Later we got several calls confirming - she didn't survive.

All I can think is that if it wasn't an instantly fatal shot, what was she thinking, between pulling the trigger and it finally being over.

And what's going to happen to her kids?

There's not much to say here. I only worked with her one day out of the week but, I still knew her. I still knew that she lived with her kids and her brother who was unstable and her ex-husband was a pretty bad person so that's why she had all the children, and that her eldest son is autistic and very smart. Apparently her father found her, and just called everyone in her cellphone contact list to let them know.

Right now, I mainly feel just numb.

So so so hey hey hey internet guess what I'm watching. GUESS. WHAT. I AM. WATCHING.

Okay so I was at Halfprice Books with Kate, looking for game books (which I found!) and I tend to always browse the videos just in case I find anything I used to have that the ex-roommates kept. No dice this time, but what I found instead...

I used to watch this movie ALL THE TIME as a kid. The video store I rented it from doesn't even exist anymore. It was a mom-and-pop rental place which later became like an autoparts store, I don't think I was even ten when I watched this. Crazy thing? I've actually been thinking about it a LOT recently. I didn't remember lots (I thought the boy was the fire child, not the girl, but that could be because his character design is red while hers is blue) except vague recollections that it was basically Romeo and Juliet.

Needless to say I BOUGHT THE SHIT OUT OF IT. I am watching it now. It comes in English dub and Original Japanese with Subtitles

That's right. One of my favorite childhood movies? An anime. That's actually happened with 90% of the shows/movies I watched as a kid, when I go look them up. "Holy shit, that was anime?!"

It turns out Sailor Moon WASN'T my gateway drug after all. I've been into anime since before I even knew what it was. (Voice acting is surprisingly good for something ported over in 1982 as well, I might add - oh yes, the movie was made in '81, brought to America in '82, this movie is OLDER THAN I AM)

So I am currently making the last spaghetti I will have for a while. Well, it's actually macaroni bought in bulk with white Alfredo sauce, but the point still stands.

Tomorrow (Monday - I'm not counting it as tomorrow until I sleep) I will begin a DIET. Yes, you heard me right. Nothing extreme, I'm not cutting out carbs entirely, or only drinking liquid meals. I'm just watching what I eat, counting the calories, and avoiding things like processed sugar. Unfortunately, this also means no noodles (we're making special exceptions for rice noodles since rice is OK) and cutting down bread. TWO OF MY MOST FAVORITE THINGS.

The only reason I'm trying this is because three of my coworkers are doing it too, and I'm hoping public shame assists me in keeping it up. I know if it's on me alone I won't keep up with it. With this I'm also hoping to get better with self-control. When I get depressed all I want to do is eat a bunch of bread and noodles and I've been depressed a lot lately, so that hasn't been helping my weight any.

In other news I also played Shadowrun for the first time today! I had a lot of fun. I can't wait until the next time we get to play.

Ummm, that's about it!

For those of you that don't know, I lost my 200+ set in the move before last. Since they obviously didn't come with me with this previous move, I must let go of my fallen kingdom and focus on rebuilding my new one.

Since some people have wanted a list of what colors I DO have since it's my much more manageable smaller list now in the event of Christmas/birthday presents, here it is. Also for my own memory.
