Hello guys! I miss you all, and I miss LJ a lot, but I'm pretty busy right now. :(
sad, serious, crushed, the gift

...

Whatever I did, I guess I'm sorry.

I can't fix anything by being angry at you, trying to find ways to convince myself that it's all your fault and not mine, that you're the selfish one.  It won't make me feel any better.  I'm better off just getting over it; trying to figure out what I did wrong and take responsibility, learn something from it... and just let go of whatever anger I might feel.

I wish you had said something to me sooner, given me a chance to make it right — or at least try — before you decided to cut me out of your life with no warning.  But I guess I get it.  No one likes confrontations.  If you thought it was easier, better, to just forget about me and give up on our friendship... then that's your choice.  And it's your right.

I know there's nothing I can do about it.  I know it's dumb to try.  The best thing I can do is try to forgive the hurt, and hope that one day you'll forgive me as well.

I mean, what else would I break my latest posting hiatus with?

Okay, is it random fan rant time?

(Let me preface this by saying that, as a fan and a fellow fanartist, I respect other artists.  By criticizing or admitting that something about your work bugs me, I do not mean anything against you personally; nor am I trying to say that your art sucks.  Just letting off steam.  No hard feelings, yeah?)


I gotta say, though... man, I hate it when people draw the Monarch's henchmen from The Venture Brothers (or for that matter, any masked character) with their masks on, and have the eyes of the mask be closed or half-closed.  THAT IS NOT HOW A MASK WORKS.  It's not that complicated a concept that solid objects cannot magically change shape to match a facial expression underneath them, is it?

I mean, okay, I know.  Unless it's drawn in an ultra-realistic style, all art exaggerates.  Nobody's as tall as we draw them, no one's hair is that naturally shiny, you don't see that many teeth when people smile...  But at least these common exaggerations are far less ridiculous.  The whole "the mask is a part of your face" thing?  Just takes me completely out of it.

Man.  Man oh man.  Do I really need another new OTP?

Well... OT3, rather.

(Dude, I'm all kinds of inspired to post, now... I don't even know, man.  I just hope this lasts a bit.  lol.)


But anyway: who else out there is watching V?  And please tell me I'm not the only one who thinks Jack/Hobbes/Erica would be the hottest thing evar?*  I mean, truth be told, I've been torn between Jack/Erica and Hobbes/Erica for quite some time, now; so, it's hard to believe I didn't think of this sooner!  (Considering how obviously slashy Jack and Hobbes are, with all that wonderful tension between them.)

In fact, if anyone has ANY fic recs — and I mean, any possible combination of these three characters — you would be forever my hero.  Tru fax.

Hmm...

I wonder why people never just post short, random things on LJ like you might on Twitter or Tumblr or Facebook.  Or... maybe they do?

Anyway.  Anybody wondering what's been going on with me lately?  No?

Oh well, I'll tell you anyway.



I'm sick with a cold.  For like, the fourth or fifth day now, I think.  I can't remember for sure.  I hope to get better soon... but I'm not doing much to speed it along. :\

I've been working on hearts_and_guts stuff.  I mean, duh.  If you know me at all, you probably already know that.  For anyone who cares: the submissions we've received so far have been pretty stellar, and I honestly think that everyone's gonna love their gifts.  That being said... I'm up to my elbows in pinch-hitters and dropped assignments right now.  I wish I knew how to do this faster.

I met a cute, very charming guy on New Year's Eve, who gave me a ride home from the subway.  I know, I know... don't take rides from strangers in the middle of the night... but I did, and I haven't been axe-murdered.  Don't worry, I'm not going to make a habit of it; and no one else should, either.  Anyway... as I was saying, met a cute guy.  Seemed like he was flirting, and he asked me to go get a drink after, but it was late, so instead I gave him my number (like a genius, did not think to ask for his).  Long story short, he hasn't called.  Maybe I imagined the whole flirting thing; or maybe he was only interested in a quick hook-up, so since that didn't happen, he was never planning to follow up.  I dunno.  Who knows, maybe I'm better off.  Still sucks, though.

And this is getting a lot ramblier than I thought it would.  Moving on...

I've read some very good fic in the last day or two.  Fic I should probably rec — but I'm too lazy to go looking for links right now.  If you want recs, I guess, then just ask me.  Or I may post them later.  (They're all Metalocalypse, I'm afraid; sorry non-MTL fans.)

Speaking or recs, I've somehow managed to convince my friend Sheila to check out Men of a Certain Age, which I must say is a proud moment for me.  I love getting people into things; but more than that, I really think this is a show that she specifically would enjoy.  I don't know how many more of you might like it or not, but I would certainly recommend checking it out, if you have the time.

On a related note: thanks to tiktaalikroseae, my interest in Supernatural has been mildly resparked.  Mildly.  No, no... I really do want to watch it again some day, and see all that new stuff that's going on, because it does sound good.  But it would take a lot more time and effort than I've got right now.  Oh, for a good friend with Netflix.



Okay, random update over.  Anybody out there got anything to say? ask? shout at me?  I dunno, I'm bored.  But busy.  I crave human interaction, yet, like a true hypocrite, I can't promise I'll respond right away.  Or, ever.  No, that's a stretch... I do make an effort to respond to comments eventually, I swear.  Regardless, do talk to me if you're so inclined.

Enough stream of consciousness... back to work.

A Thanksgiving meme?  Well, sort of.

It's Thanksgiving, and I thought that I should really try to post something in honor of the holiday... especially since I haven't updated in a while.  Now, I could do something mushy, maybe a list of all the people I'm thankful for in my life, like I did a few years back.  But I don't really feel like it.  So instead, I thought I would try to start a meme.


Step 1: Comment here with any 3 fictional characters, from any fandom(s), as long as they are characters/fandoms I know.

Step 2: Below the cut, I will put what I think each character would be most thankful for this holiday.  It might be just a simple response, or it might be a picture or even a drabble... pretty much anything, as long as it answers the question.

Step 3: Repost this in your own journal (IF YOU WANT TO), with the same instructions.

Uhh... if you're not sure which fandoms I'm familiar with, just gimme some characters, and if I don't know them I'll tell you so.  But for the record, my main fandoms right now are Glee, Metalocalypse, and Harry Potter.

Anyway, I'm really hoping at least one or two people do repost this.  I've never started a meme before... but I think it would be pretty awesome if this thing actually took off.  lol.



Also!  If you know of any existing memes that are Thanksgiving-related, I'd love some links, because I think I might like to do a couple.  Or you can just comment and tell me how your holiday is going (or just how your day is going, if you're not American/don't celebrate Thanksgiving).

The point is, I miss talking to you guys. <3

I had a clever title for this post... BUT I EATED IT.

So, like the flake that I usually am, I completely forgot to pimp this in my own lj. But! Here goes, you guys:

One last day left to sign up for hearts_and_guts!


Yup, there's still time... but sign-ups close tomorrow at midnight. Now I KNOW there's at least one or two of you dudes on my f'list who'd love to participate. Here's your chance, guys. It's gonna be a heck of a lot of fun; so, go sign up while you still can!

House 7x05: Unplanned Parenthood

Way too busy/sleepy/overwhelmed by other thoughts to say everything I might otherwise like to say — other than that it was a pretty great episode.  But I do have a couple quick comments, and a question:

Thoughts?  Responses?  Impassioned arguments?  If you watch House, I'd love to know your take on this one.
