Waking up in a total slump, whining to a friend to gain courage, and then braving the snow and ice and outside in your favourite coat that makes you feel badass with an old favorite song on your headphones.

Spending less money than you thought you would to get food for the breakfast you had been putting off because of irrationality.

Playing 'kick the can' by yourself with a ball of snow and almost falling on ice, but managing not to.

Coming home and making bacon, toast, eggs, and tea; not caring if it's burnt because it's still something you yourself made, and that's a whole kind of special all on it's own that wouldn't be possible if the food came out perfect every time.


Life is special and wonderful and full of superhuman sparkles because things like this exist. Because sometimes people notice things like this exist and take all that wonder and joy and hold it tight before laughing and letting it fly free to inspire someone else.

So [personal profile] ilyena_sylph is totally one of the most awesome people in the world and had me in tears a little while ago ya'll. She gifted me with two months of paid time and I am about to use the hell out of these months. ♥

The curious and ever-stalking up and up sort will notice the addition of 46 new icons already. I am currently charting out a custom mood theme to being making caps. I'm gonna be brave (and possibly ridiculous if we're being honest) and try and make a Kuroko no Basuke theme to go with my new obsession. I haven't seen any floating around yet, so I may be making the first! ♥

Eeee~ *scuttles off in a wave of rolling flails and peppermint cookies*

In which the most productive thing besides cleaning the bathroom sink I have done today is make a batch of icons (finally!). I dropped them over on my writing&graphic comm, so follow the fake cut if you like. :)

is to actually type something up. I can't get back into the habit of posting journal entries unless I actually start posting journal entries. I'm a genius like that, I know.

First off, *hugs* to everyone who needs one. It seems like this holiday season is a hard one for most of you on my flist this year.

Second, well. I assume there should be a second since there was a first, but I'm not actually sure what this second will consist of. Oh! Mayhaps I shall mention the blizzard we just had! The lovely Winter Storm Draco (and doesn't that make for a horrible SOFAI and HP crossover) came by and dumped a ton of snow on us here. My work called and told me not to come in this morning, so I spent the day colouring and staring out the window at the various plows passing by. Also huddled in a sleeping bag and three layers of clothes because I'm weak like that.

Colouring is going surprisingly well! I downloaded a few new brushes today and worked on trying them out. I love them to bits already. (To the curious, I got the link from my Fantasy Artist mag and the brushes themselves from http://mike-nash.com/) Unfortunately, the combination of a more traditional painting style with the style I used just before resulted in what is, so far, 86 layers. My computer is not pleased with this, and I'm not 100% about it either, but practice makes perfect! So more painting and more painting to go.

Digressing a tad, work is going well. It's cheap retail work for an impatient company, but it's still work. I was scheduled for 46 hours this week, but with the blizzard and all, it'll drop some. Lots of hours at minimum wage equals okay pay. Not complaining.

Muse has been playing merry making around my head for a few days now, and I've been full of ideas at inappropriate times (because yes, brain, spawning an epic AU when I'm rushing around getting ready to run after a bus for work is clearly the best idea). Some of them have been written down, most haven't.
Hopefully the influx of new creativity will continue and I'll manage to remember to post things! (and get over my own self-confidence enough to actually post them and not just make a draft to sit in my folder for all eternity...)

Lastly, if I have your address, you can pretty much assume that you will be getting a winterthing from me. It just... will take a while. On top of shipping, I'm making things with a 21 day cure time and, like the wonderful art major-to-be I am, forgot to factor the cure time into my paint and mail time. Aren't I fabulously brilliant? So! Things. They will be coming, just... late.

And that shall be all for this I think. Signing off with the hopes I will remember to sign on with something/anything tomorrow!

Being the silly fangirl I am, I recently got sucked back into the world of Naruto fanfiction. Now, either the fic writers have all gone downhill, or I used to have really shitty taste in fanficion. That or I'm just pickier.

But for real.

So the basis of the story is that Naruto and Sasuke, uber rivals, are locked in a house together to help them get along (either they kill one another, or work out their differences). Okay, that's fine - not a problem with that. The issue I take is that after the two of them get into a silly argument, Naruto stomps over to his sleeping bag and complains internally that he wishes there were a weapon on hand that he could use to kill Sasuke.

....lemme just take a MOMENT here to explain the error in this thinking.
You were just eating breakfast in the kitchen. What about the table?! Break a leg off and beat his head in! Use the chair to smash into his back and then grab a shard and cut his throat!
What about the utensils you were eating with?! Smash a knife into his gut! Gouge his eyes out with a spoon! Stab his throat with a fork!
What about the food itself?! Lob some of those fruits at his head! Drown him with milk! Hell, there's a sink in the kitchen too! Drown him there! Or even poison!
What about that door you went through in the morning to get to the bathroom?! Rip the knob off and throw it at him! Break the door down to make a club!
What about that sleeping bag you're sitting on?! Suffocate him with it! Tear a strip off and choke him to death! You can use his sleeping bag after he's dead anyways.
You're wearing clothes too, right?! Tear your damn shirt off and kill him with that!
Or, no. Wait. YOU'RE A NINJA. YOUR ENTIRE SELF IS A FUCKING WEAPON!

So no. Sorry. I can't read this story anymore. It took me less than five minutes to think of things you could use to kill Sasuke with, and I wasn't even trying. You're a high level ninja and you can't think of any of this? I call bullshit.

Your dominant hues are green and blue. You're smart and you know it, and want to use your power to help people and relate to others. Even though you tend to battle with yourself, you solve other people's conflicts well.

Your saturation level is higher than average - You know what you want, but sometimes know not to tell everyone. You value accomplishments and know you can get the job done, so don't be afraid to run out and make things happen.

Your outlook on life is bright. You see good things in situations where others may not be able to, and it frustrates you to see them get down on everything.

Recoded my journal layout some. Not sure yet if I like it enough to stop fiddling, or if I'll go back to the old version I had with SG First Aid. All I know right now is that my head hurts, my joints hurt, and it looks good enough to me for right now. Ugh *sniffs* I hate colds.

By the way, if you do image work/design work and haven't heard of COPASCO yet, go see! It's pretty awesome, and I've been using it to scheme my LJ and DW layout colours. The software is tied to COLOURLovers, which, if you haven't messed with either *nudges,* is an awesome site with colour palettes and seamless background images. It's pretty much my first stop for any messing around I do.

And now? Imma go collapse for a while I think.

Sorry for not posting as often as I intended guys. I'm working through a Hell of a time IRL right now, and I just don't have the energy to be online and communicative most times. I'm also about to go on a two week 'vacation' and have yet to figure out how to post here from my phone, so there will be another two weeks of silence come Monday.

If anyone wants to trade numbers to keep in touch, ping me.

edit: if anyone knows any awesome songs/bands, or stories I can read on the trip, comment please! I'm gathering files for the trip. :)

ao4w95nui[a0 qbtmhyaw'3vgjl! DDDDDDDD:

My external pocket drive which I use for all my design work is malfunctioning for some reason. ;A; I have no idea what's wrong with it, but it's not booting properly, and my laptop wants to format it.
I need this drive guys. It has all of my stock, brushes, textures, fonts, actions, SAI work, and every picture I have ever taken stored on it. I cannot afford to lose this drive.

It runs on a USB 2.0 cable, and when I plug it in to start it, the drive spins then starts this stuttered clicking noise, and I get a notification that the USB device is malfunctioning.

Anyone have any hints/clues/tips for me? ;n;


edit: Just plugged it into the desktop machine, and it ran fine. It's my USB drives on my laptop. Drives as in plural. All of them are having issues.
Why is this such a big deal? I run four on a regular basis (school, design, writing, back-up). As I have said, all of my design stuff lives on my pocket drive. In addition, all of my writing stuff lives on an external flashdrive I take with me literally everywhere. It has everything I've written, my snippets and ramblings, all my plots and research material. And all my RP stuff from a variety of sites lives on there for on-the-go-rp. Then I have my school drive with all my classwork, etc.
Without my drives, I can't move my latest camera images off, or work on an intensive design commission, or even log any of my writing properly.

I-I can't do what I do without my drives... Now I need to know what I need to do about this. Dammit.

So I was tweeting about baking, as I am wont to do occasionally, and [personal profile] arirashkae made mention of a lovely Mini Chocolate Chip Cheesecake recipe she had found. Me, being a total sucker for cheesecake, offered a recipe exchange! :D

So here's two recipes I've scrounged up and am planning to try at some point soon.

Toffee Almond Shortbread

(found on the inside of a butter box) )

Applesauce Cake

Not dead guys! Just very busy/stressed/frustrated. Between job1, job2, and schoolwork, my free time has been zapped down to maybe 9 hours on a free day, and 3 hours on full days (if I can stay awake that long. I tend to drop asleep after just an hour of free time). So online presence will be scattershot and wobbly.

cutting for those uninterested in RL rambles )

The tl;dr point of this post is that I’m short on free time. And I have way too many WIPs open.

So! A query for my lovely followers! (stealing some of this format from a meme I saw floating around, but never got involved in) I’m going to post some snippets from various fic(let)s I’m working on, and if you could poke me about the one you’re interested in most, I’ll try and finish that up first! :D
If you want, I can also post a longer snippet of whatever one you want! Also hoping that this pokes me into writing more.
(should I warn for un-beta-ness?)

Please Don’t Insist (TF fourshot) G1 First Aid/Prowl. 
There was a moment when First Aid wasn’t sure if Prowl was joking. )

Can’t Afford to Care
(TF oneshot/prequel) Deadlock/Ratchet.
These two fall down a hole during a battle. There are misunderstandings. Then porn. )

Faith
(TF fiveshot) BV Optimus Prime/Starscream.
In which Starscream is breaking, and Optimus is overly self-sacrificing and speaks before he thinks. )

Bondage Isn’t Free
(HP oneshot) Evan Rosier/multiple.
It’s based on a meme. And has lots of dark porn. )

Life as a Blonde
(HP multichapter)
Harry gets flung back in time into Draco’s body. )

Bonded Forever
(SHINee AU fic) Jonghyun/Taemin, past!Jonghyun/Key.
Jonghyun runs into Key again years after the other assassin saved his life. )

I had the thought last night to redo some of my journal coding over on Livejournal last night this morning at 2am. Naturally, I was tired as all get out and just started a routine system scan before going to bed with the intent I would do something about it today.

So, I wake up this morning, fall in love again with my code and the work that went into mix-coding the first time... and promptly decide that maybe I'll do a quick rewrite of my profile code instead. So I browse around for a some inspiration. Then I start coding. A framework here, a few colour swatch fiddles there, and a dash of links.

And now, a little while later, I have a profile code that, stylistically, doesn't fit either my Dreamwidth or my Livejournal. (and has a persistent border line I can't seem to root out :T)
SO! I'm sticking it here since I do like it, but I don't have anywhere else to use it.

If anyone else likes it, feel free to source the code or PM me for it. ^^

Hrmm... guess that'll be my next project when I get distracted from writing/finally caught up!

In the meantime, I have an awesome new NaNo desktop background! :D It features the lovely Starscream and has encouraging comments on every day! I'm ridiculously happy about it.

Still have about 5 pages worth of handwritten stuff to type up. I'm figuring that's about another 2000 words in all to type yet. Oh, and I have two voice recordings I made the other night for one chapter. Need to get to those soon too. At least I'm writing at around 4-5 pages a day to keep up with my daily word count goal! I just need to keep on top of typing it now. XD


Hmm, I feel like I was going to write something mildly entertaining here... whoops?

Anywho, I'll be on sporadic internet again for the rest of the week. I've got family coming, my mom has surgery I need to drive her out of town for, I'm behind on my homework, and I've got almost double hours at work this week!

and for real guys, this green bottle fly thing beside me is about to make me have a panic attack

After scouring the new rules of NaNoWriMo this year (which have gotten stricter since I first joined and caused me some concern for my novel at first), I think I have finally settled on my idea for the month.
Since I still don't have an actual original fiction novel idea in plot, I'm following the lovely lead of [personal profile] sharpest_asp and writing multiple stories. Mine will be an anthology of Transformers fanfiction ideas I've had sitting in the wings for a little while now. And yes, I did verify the rules to make sure I'm still allowed to validate my win at the end of the month (willing I actually finish these stories).

c/p from the NaNo site (just in case anyone else was wondering):
I'm writing fanfiction. Am I a rebel?

Not even a little. The only rule we have for content is that it must be fiction. Beyond that...

I'm writing a collection of short stories. Am I a rebel?

Probably not. There's no actual rule on this one. We define a novel as "a lengthy work of fiction." However, we the moderators feel that since you find short story collections on the shelves alongside longer works of fiction, if they're related, they count. They need to have some common theme, or linking thread that weaves them together that makes them a single, "lengthy work of fiction."


I can easily link two of them, "Faith" and "Burn Me Alive", since I count Starscream setting other mechs on fire as a linking thread (and the fire is actually essential to each plot!).
"Can't Afford to Care" and "Deadlocked" would be a bit harder to link in if I needed to write them to add to word count, but I'm sure if I need to, I'll just set some mech on fire in each of those as well and make it a collection about mechs getting set on fire and advancing the plot. ...it'd actually be pretty easy to set somemech on fire in each of them...

*headdesk* or I can always say that since they're in the same fandom and they're each rare pairs, that's a good enough link to count. even though I kinda wanna set Deadlock on fire now

Bit late on getting my NaNo post up this year, but whatev' *twirls*

I still don't have a plot ready for when November rolls around! I've still got a week, but... a week. 6 days. It seems like such a tiny amount. Last year I had my plan in August. And the year before that I was itching to start writing by now. So not having a plot yet is a little... disconcerting.
I'm currently waffling around a few ideas for either
a) rewriting my currently semi-epic level TF fic as an original story involving hive minds, the pressure of stress, and the morality of consensual agreement under mental duress
b) break down and write the fanfic I planned out in July for my crack!OTP in TF
c) new original fic involving a broken hive mind, children raised as poison testers, assassins, and royal feuds
d) adding more the epic level, multi-universe, story that was my 09 win
e) make something else new up

I'm leaning strongly to hive minds this year. :/ I blame my current WIP for having First Aid in it. Silly gestalts. Wanting into everything.
I kinda wanna bounce some more ideas off someone to try and get into a new novel mindset. I'm a bit gutter stuck in the TF short story area atm. And it's a rather deep gutter full of narrow-minded plunnies, song lyrics, and more prompts then I think I could write.

(( Fellow Wrimos: When the NaNo buddies system finally reintegrates itself back into the new servers, feel free to add me! I'm Naoi on there too! ))


In good news though, thanks to an unfortunate bit of wank that got me pissed the other night, I began writing a reactionary fiction piece that actually got me somewhat over the writer's block I'd been having for a few days! :D Just goes to show, when you think you can't write anything, just sit and stab something out onto paper, and magically words will begin to appear that you might like. Case in point:
Sometimes Drift thought he was insane. That he was imagining that almost awkward pulsing. Then it would happen again, and he would wonder how he could have ever doubted that it was there.

The entire thing is about 500 words long, and miiight stretch to 2k if I keep rolling with it and all goes well. If not, eh, it served it's purpose, and the meta that inspired it is still there.


I've also gotten into a very stressful situation at work right now, and I'm planning on meeting with the store manager tomorrow to try and get the majority of it sorted out. Some of what's been happening these past few weeks is somewhat, or really, is, morally unethical. And it's a load of bull. Hopefully all turns out well. *crosses fingers*
