I really dislike it when DW loses my saved draft ENTIRELY. -__________-

So. The gist of everything was that NaNo is coming, my grandpa is coming, Halloween is coming, and my life is turning into a rapid-devolving bundle of nerves and issues.

And I think I'm going to change my background and layout colour scheme. :T More purple with pretty Seekers or some such. *plays with ideas*


Edit: went ahead and changed my layout :3 very much in love with this picture of SG First Aid drawn by the lovely dragintothefli of DeviantArt ♥ You can go see the original image here!

So, since I've been gone so long this obviously means I have stuff for you, right?
Well, for once, that is correct! I have a lovely collection of 40 new icons for you! (cause I have no life and no internet at home >.>) I also found out about the lovely Andrej Pejic and couldn't resist making icons for him. Could not resist. And then of course Alex Evans started taunting me, followed by [personal profile] caits with new images of Fast 5, and well, Supernatural just showed up like they were supposed to! XD

I've been trying out a new style of iconing lately, and I really like it personally. Please let me know what you think! ♥

So, finals are next week, (and I don't even know for sure what they're on...) and I haven't posted on here in FOREVER. It's kinda scary to look at this page full of things I haven't said in so looong and try and figure out what to say next. Like, is anyone even there anymore?

What's happened so far in the life of Naoi is this:
♠ Got whistled at by some guys in a car for the first time the other week. I was both proud and slightly creeped out.

♠ Have been commissioned for an actual book cover design. As in something that will be printed and shown to millions of people. Super scary stuff there, and my nerves have gotten the best of me several times.
Plus my PS kung-fu has failed me. I can't get the one image to work right. Bleh. XP

♠ Bought the entire TOS series for $25 at an estate sale of a fanfic writer who moved out and left her stuff to her housemates for some reason. WIN!
Oh, and Leonard Nimoy's second autobiography I am Spock for $2. I had no idea he was such a cool writer. I loved it so much.

♠ Figured out how to do awesome light texture thingies. (I have them posted on my dA)

Can't really think of much anything else although I'm sure I left some stuff out. Ahhhhh well.
I'll try and get some more stuff up on here soon and like, keep up with it. I've actually missed blogging and whatnot. Writing is addicting to me. Spelling out your thoughts in black on white and printing them in clever turns of phrase and along lines of consciousness you may have forgotten existed till you resurrected them from the depths of your ID.
>.> I'll just shut up now. XD

To those with and those without a significant other to spend the day with. ♥
I hope your day is filled with love and joy.

Okay. This is getting ridiculous.
I've been searching for about a week now in an attempt to find ANY Harry Potter crossovers involving Kpop/SHINee/DBSK/etc. and I haven't been able to find hardly anything! I've found only two things... a drabble and a crack!oneshot. T~T

Am I the only one interested in this?
kitefullofkoi: Badou from DOGS. text: living stingy (shinee: hsm taemin)
SHINee did a cover of "Forever or Never"! *dies*
I about crashed my car last night when it came on and I realized what it was. XD Luckily I was able to recover quickly.

The lyrics of the SHINee version don't match up with the Cinema Bizarre version (which I first fell in love with). SM Ent. calmed it down a lot. It still has the same musical flow as the original however, and I still love it! ♥

» THIS IS NOT MINE «

This is from Ariaeris of fanfiction.net’s profile page. I highly support everything he said in this and decided to repost this on my journal so more people could read it. This is copied directly – in its entirety – from his profile page.

--

Hello everyone in the world of fanfiction! I know I have been absolutely horrible lately about updating; the next chapter of AMoM is already a month delayed, I dropped out of Kamerreon's drabble challenge, and Alexithymia and the MWAHA 'verse still need to be wrapped up. I really am sorry about how everything seems to be on hold; I have the typical excuses of school, a new job, college applications, but really, there is no excuse.
This little section isn't about that (though I do apologize; just thought I'd get that out there). No, I wouldn't interrupt the above anti-homophobia message for something as small as that. No, I have something much more important to say.

I got a flame today.

Now, even that fact is insignificant. Honestly, I don't really care to announce to the world that I received a poorly-written, grammatically incorrect, piece of shit from a reader whose brain capacity is tantamount to that of a speck of dust, but I think there is something that should be pointed out. Two things actually:

1. It was a homophobic flame.


2. It made light of the painful and destructive reality that is suicide.


I do not want to sound preachy. I do not want to act high and mighty. Everyone has a right to an opinion and no matter how much I might dislike said opinions, I acknowledge the fact that people are allowed to have them. I will not argue that one point of view is utterly and completely wrong; that would be the epitome of foolish. On a very personal level I have a deep abhorrence for homophobia and frivolity related to suicide, but I am not going to work myself up into a dither because of it.

What I am going to do is tell the cowardly piece of shit who dared tell me to go kill myself is that if he or she takes that attitude to anywhere else online and I find a way to know who this anonymous fool is, I will make their life a living hell. I understand the nature of the online community; anonymity removes some of our more basic controls over our language and behaviors and, without the fear of repercussion, many of us act in ways we would never dare to under public scrutiny. I understand that aspect completely, but that does not excuse such behavior.

Even if the Internet provides anonymity, we are all still human beings, subjected to our own personal whims, beliefs, and, yes, weaknesses. Telling someone to go kill themselves, without any regard to the person behind the computer, behind the anonymity, is not just stupid and immature, but dangerous. You're one person, one person who doesn't have the courage to leave an address to which I can reply to, one person who, in the long run, will have no significance in my life whatsoever.

But what happens if you did? What happens if I was depressed? What happens if I was thinking of committing suicide? What happens if I had poured my soul into the piece of work you flamed for such a reason as homophobia when in the story's summary I clearly declared the pairing as homosexual? You said that 'people came to see a good pairing?' Two things, flamer of mine: either you just clicked on my story without any regard to what I had written and decided to flame me because of something I had clearly warned beforehand (making you an idiot), or you clicked on my story for the sole purpose of flaming me (which would make you extremely petty).

Pettiness and idiocy; think of those two things. Back to my musings though: what if I had been on the edge of suicidal depression and you, through your comments, managed to be the final straw to push me over that edge? Because of either your idiocy or your pettiness, I committed suicide. Congratulations; you had a hand in the death of someone. You will never be charged with any crime, you will never be associated with any transgression, hell, and you may never know such an event took place. But doesn't that just make it worse? Every flame you leave, every idiotic or petty comment might be that final straw, that push over the edge, that little shove towards suicide. And all because you told a person to kill themselves.

Makes your 'review' seem a little less like a good idea, doesn't it? A family member close to me tried to commit suicide twice, my flamer. Guess what? It wasn't fucking funny. And you just going around, casually telling people to go kill themselves because either you are an idiot or a petty fool really pisses me off. I said I would never tear a person down because of their opinions, but this is not an opinion; this is you potentially being an accessory to someone's suicide.

Is it really worth it then? Is the minor thrill, that exercise of your free speech really that important that you would take a person's life for it? At the end of the day, can you really be happy with yourself because you managed to express your beliefs in such a way that, to someone who might be experiencing an emotional low point, they might actually take your advice? Do you really want that weight on your mind? Do you?

You might never read this; I'm actually expecting you not to. I might be coming off as a self-righteous prick here, but you know what? I honestly don't care. I think everything I've said here needed to be said. Too many times have I've seen cowardly flamers leave reviews in people's hard work telling them to kill themselves or that they should be killed just to scurry off, pleased with themselves, to some other part of the ever-so-anonymous Internet. It's disgusting, wrong, and in no way justifiable; what right do you, or anyone else as a matter of fact, have to tell someone they should kill themselves or be killed?

So anyone who reads this, just please take into account that while we are all anonymous here, we are all still people. The only thing without feelings on the Internet is the conduit we use; no matter who we are, writer, reviewer, flamer, et cetera, we all have opinions, individual thoughts, and emotions. The consequences of a careless word could span farther than you intended; a single thoughtless action could change another person's life.

And, in the end, is anyone willing to be responsible for another's death because we told them to kill themselves?

Ariaeris~


Ps: I'm probably going to remove this. I will admit that I wrote this as an emotional reaction and that my stance flip-flopped wildly throughout, from actively pursuing violence to vehemence to being preachy, but I stand by every single thing I've said here; I honestly do believe every single thing I wrote. I do want to apologize to anyone I might have offended inadvertently though, for I did not mean any harm, just to give my opinion on what I find to be one of the most disturbing reflections of human behavior I have seen on this site and others. I had only good intentions writing this and if that did not come across to the reader, then I apologize once more.


Pps: I’ve gotten quite a few PMs asking me to keep this message up, and to tell the truth, I don’t want to take it down either. So, I’m keeping it up untouched, postscript and terribly outdated beginning in all, so that the emotions behind it can remain preserved. A great big thank you to everyone who gave me a kind word after reading the kind-of rant; though I may not have replied to you all, your words meant more to me than you might ever know.

x-posted from my DA journal

 After getting let out of class early tonight, Cait and I drove around for a while just for the hell of it. Scoping out spots for possible future shoots, laughing at the fact we got lost in our own city, and then cursing when people showed up behind us with their brights on.

Only a few minutes into this wonderful adventure and I remembered this old, out of the way cemetery that looked kinda cool. It had a long windy gravel road that went back into the darkness of a forest, was off the beaten path, and had the only streetlight for miles. (aka: creepy as fuck) Naturally I said, "Why don't we go have a quick shoot there. We could use the headlights from the car and get some epic night lighting!" Caits, loyal hench that she is, agreed. ♥

And thus began our adventure... *dun dun dun*

Upon reaching our destination, Caits turned to me and said, quite clearly, "Naoi, I know how this movie ends." XD Two girls, alone in the dark, on this old path that disappears into who knows where, in a graveyard, taking photos.

After only a few shots, it was discovered we really should have brought a tripod because we had to let the image process for longer than normal due to the low lighting conditions. I also realized that if we left the camera on manual settings, all the shots would come out blurry because Caits has problems keeping steady. So, we switched to auto in the hopes I could magic up some epicness later. We also shut off the car and left the really cool backside of this old, spiderweb covered church to head to the front where the single streetlight was. We ended up shooting just in front of the light in order to get enough lighting for the image to focus on me instead of the sea of blackness around me.

Every time a car went zooming by at what had to be at least 80mph or more, we would jump in the bushes or behind a pillar so they wouldn't see us and try and grab us. I thought it was fun. Shows where my head is I guess. 
It kinda freaked us out though when this car drove down what must have been another gravel drive a block or so down from us in a field. We saw it drive by, and Cait screamed it was circling to get us, so we tried to dodge into the bushes, and then the car disappeared into the blackness out towards the mystery forest both of us refused to contemplate. Like, just poofed. Sudden lack of headlights, crunch of tires on gravel, anything.

The best part (besides the photos we salvaged) was that out of the blue, this cow mooed from behind Caits. She literally jumped in the air with a gasp before running to hide behind me. Like I could do anything. XD Apparently, the field next door to the cemetery housed a cow. Which continued to moo at us for the duration of the shoot although we never saw it. Kinda weird to have a cow beside a cemetery though. o~O
Cait also found it amusing when I tried to high kick this beetle-bug-creepy-crawling-thing that appeared beside my shoulder. I missed, sadly (I blame the vinyl pants hindering my movement). She laughed. Then shrieked five shots later when I pointed out the beetle beside her foot. Which promptly got squished. XD

All in all, it was quite an adventure to add to our collection. We only managed to get maybe ten/fifteen good shots out of the whole thing, but we're thinking of heading back out next week or so with a tripod and flash (and maybe some muscle in the form of testosterone) to try this again. X3

Was in the middle up typing up the app for my new character on Bad Romance when I realized something.

Nicotine from cigarettes passes into the bloodstream from the capillaries in the lungs, and from there heads into the brain and localizes in various nerve clusters. Now, since vampire hearts don't beat and cause blood to flow, nicotine technically won't really affect them. Which means the benefits of smoking are negligible as the smoke will not reach the brain.
Of course, the detriments of smoking don't really hurt them either. I mean, what kind of vampire would die from lung cancer?

So, my question is this, besides looking sexy as hell, why would a vampire take up smoking after his turning? o.O

5 days until the new school semester starts...
Just 5 days...

It seems so sudden when I look at it that way, but I've had weeks to prepare for this moment. Weeks to pay for classes, buy my overpriced college textbooks, and schedule car pools. Yet...despite all this, it seems so sudden and overwhelming for school to be starting again. In a way, I'm kinda tired of waiting for it and just want to get back into the swing of it all, but I also can't help but feel apprehension that I'm starting over in a new campus where I don't know any of the teachers, where their rooms are, or what the parking permits look like. (or really...where the campus is. This needs to be rectified immediately...)

Wish me luck please!

It’s defiantly been a month since my last quote post, so I bring you a rather large stack of them this time!
I seem to have gotten vaguer and vaguer in providing plot-worthy quotes; hopefully though, some smart writers out there will think up some interesting stories from these. ^^

this night has only just begun... )

21 quotes later and I finally end this post. Amazing what forgetfulness can do for the length of a post. XD Hope you enjoyed! ♥

kitefullofkoi: Badou from DOGS. text: living stingy (ritsuka)
Quite a few new quotes this month! I kept waiting for an actual month to roll around, but then the pile of quotes kept getting higher and higher... XD So, a somewhat early post for everyone! Enjoy! ♥

ANIMATION AND GRAPHIC DESIGN ARE NOT THE SAME THING.

Nor does Fasion Design = Graphic Design. (I mean really, think about that for a minute)
 


Please stop trying to tell me otherwise, because truthfully - despite your continued efforts to try and convince me otherwise - not everything in the world is graphic design.

this is not aimed at one specific person but more at the adults in my life in general

I hadn't originally planned on posting any more icons this soon, but [personal profile] caits convinced me that it's okay to post 20 icons at a time. XD (also, I suck at tables, so there's very little spacing between icons)

Many more variations on show here; I seem to have fallen in love with offering multiple versions of an icon in case someone doesn't like one version. Is that selfish? XD If you do happen to see one you want me to change the colour of or something, comment and I'll see what I can do.
