Last ldws pimp!

The voting for the final round of ldws is up here. Please go read the four incredible drabbles and vote for who you think should win! ifanciful and anothersaturday are both ridiculously talented writers, so I assure you their entries are worth reading.

Back to editing... scanlating is a lot more time-consuming than I thought :( If I can get this chapter done tonight, I'll finally let myself watch eps 10 and 11 of Junjou Romantica XD

LDWS pimp

The voting for round 4, challenge 8 of ldws is now up here. The three remaining authors are all incredibly talented. They each had to write two drabbles this week (one based on a prompt, the other free choice), and all of the drabbles are amazing. Please go check them out (there are only six) and vote if you can.

Dude, the drabbles at ldws this week are AWESOME. The challenge was to write a drabble based off of the song "The Scientist" by Coldplay. I... can't even decide which one's my favourite, much less who deserves to be voted off.

Go here to read/vote! The participants deserve as many votes as they can get for submitting such awesome work :)

Also, as most people probably already know, there's only one day left to vote in hd_worldcup, so make sure to do that if you have time! Here are all of Team Epilogue's fics for your convenience :D The winning team and reveals will be posted on May 21st.

FIRST OF ALL, I NINE'S ALBUM IS OUT!!! I'm downloading it right now. Will edit in my opinion of it after I have listened to it :D

Voting for challenge 3 of ldws is up! Go here to read all of the fabulous entries and vote. I'm so, so, so proud of all of the participants. They keep improving. Some of the drabbles this week actually made me cry, they were so awesome.

Mm, anyway. I was really disappointed by episode 3 of Junjou Romantica :( I don't think it did any justice to Nowaki and Hiro's relationship. I won't spoil it for anyone, but they basically compressed two chapters into one episode and cut out a lot of cute moments. Then they jumped forward to the "6 years later" part in the preview, and I was like, O_O WHAT IS GOING ON HERE. I feel like it took the manga 8450238498423 chapters to get to that point, and the anime did it all in 20 minutes. NOT cool. IMO, everything that happened between Nowaki and Hiro is important, because it shows how they had to overcome their problems for each other. Seriously, they're one of my favourite pairings of all time. Look at my icon and tell me they're not adorable. Hiro = love. I have a thing for grumpy, go-away-I-don't-need-you-even-though-I-love-you-desperately characters.

Speaking of go-away-I-don't-need-you-even-though-I-love-you-desperately characters, I just finished Yellow and it was SO. GOOD. It's officially in my top 5 favourite multi-volume mangas. Taki (the go-away-I-don't-etc. character) is totally my fanon!Draco. I HIGHLY recommend this manga. It's about two drug snatchers, one of whom is gay and in love with the other one, and the assignments they have to solve. It's four volumes long, plus an extra, and it's brimming with action, mystery, humour, angst, and, best of all, lots of yummy UST. READ IT! :D

I need to go write. Um, or at least work on my essay/research project. I analysed the data I've gathered so far in SPSS today, and my p-value was .400, LOL. My TA was watching over my shoulder, and when the ANOVA table showed up, we looked at each other and I could totally tell she was struggling to think of something reassuring to say. Then finally she just said, "Well... I think you might need more data." I burst out laughing.

*goes back to sniffing around for a leak of Clay Aiken's new album*

ETA: Didn't really like I Nine's album :( I think the best songs off of it were already available prior to the release. I did, however, love the full version of "Get Out" :D

Too much writing, so under the cut.

RL, writing, recs...Collapse )

All right, I'm done. Back to writing this essay *_* Random fact: I'm structuring the essay around the Tarot card interpretations I learned from hd_worldcup :P

ETA: OMG EPISODE 2 OF JUNJOU ROMANTICA IS SUBBED.

My personalityCollapse )

Last night I was talking with one of my gay guy friends (who is now an H/D shipper, thanks to yours truly), and he had just finished The Other Boleyn Girl (also on my recommendation). We were gushing over the book, and it was pretty freaking awesome:

Conversation with my friend about TOBGCollapse )

I'm hoping he'll be able to make it to Terminus, because he says he definitely wants to go :D

I've been working on my the_ass_fest fic more these past few days. i finished planning it out yesterday, and so far I'm about 5k in. The fic's looking to be ~20k, but it'll probably end up being longer. Who knows! Final projects/exams/papers are coming up soon, so I'm trying to get as much writing in as possible before panic and stress strike.

OMG, they were filming the Sectumsempra scene a few days ago! I'm really hoping they get it right, because it's one of my favourite scenes in the entire series.

And lol @ this article. Sorry, but I don't feel the slightest bit of sympathy for Vander Ark. As much as I love the HPL, I hope JKR owns him in this court case.

In other news, voting is up at ldws, so head on over, check out the drabbles, and vote, vote, vote!

More rambling...

Gah. I hate being sick. Springfest 2008 is today, but I'm too exhausted to go, which means I'll be missing out on free live music, free food, free games, and a FREE SLIP 'N' SLIDE. I'm violating the first rule of college: take advantage of anything free, especially if it involves food and entertainment.

Anyway, I think I'm going to make a habit of organising my posts like this.

Major: English or print journalism?Collapse )

Anime/mangaCollapse )

Bits and piecesCollapse )

As always, the obligatory advertisements:

ldws has a full roster! Yay! I'm so excited to start posting challenges. avada_k and I were coming up with some the other day, but now it looks like we'll need to think of more, because neither of us expected to fill all twenty spots.

And the hd_worldcup art posts for today are incredible. ARTISTS, YOU'RE MADE OF WIN ♥

*goes back to reading Loveless*

(LOL @ this line:

Yuiko: Ritsuka-kun is going out with a university student?
Soubi: No, we're not going out. We have a master/slave relationship.

I'm way too easily amused.)

Pimping ldws

  • 6th Apr, 2008 at 10:56 PM
Okay, after a lot of tedious deliberation, I've decided to start round four of ldws. It's a drabble writing competition that is similar in style and concept to ultimate_lims. I started it a few years ago with midnightzstorm and avada_k, but both of them are currently busy and unable to co-mod with me.

IN ANY CASE, round four sign-ups are now open, so head on over and give it a shot. Please? :D

In other news, I'm sick again. Bleh. Also, omg @ hd_worldcup. That's all I'll say for now.
