Okay, there's this thing and even though it says "click through for the zip" I seem to have gone blind because I can't see any through to click and thus no zip and then my face goes all :( Help?

While we're on the "Sickle's useless at figuring out not-really-so-complicated things on Tumblr", how to I put in a user icon? I don't even know what the things are called on Tumblr... Oh, I feel so internet-illiterate.

In other news, not much is going on and there's too much stuff on the internet.

I got a Tumblr account because apparently this way if anyone changes their URLs again then they won't be lost to me. Bastards.

In other news, and as evidence that I only got Tumblr for the Dashboard, have some Supernatural and True Blood fanart, both with just a hint of Firefly, because why finish projects when I can just make new ones? *sigh* (Also? Note to self: less contrast is better.) SOILERS - True Blood 4x02 )


Quote of the Day: [livejournal.com profile] aelora, here
I swear I spend every waking moment on Tumblr anymore. It's like watching CNN, except for fandom. You get the updates AS THINGS HAPPEN. And with pictures and video. It's INSANE. And ADDICTIVE.

I'm a bit better today, but the past few days have been pretty shitty in the emotional department, all Social Isolation Monkey and Random Crying and Anxiety and Extreme Boredom. Seriously, I've been going crazy.

I've been sunbathing, watching Firefly, and editing old unfinished stories for the anthology I'm working on for my ex-supervisor. Not much else happening apart from the, y'know, mental meltdown.

Oh, and I've petted some cats. That was nice.

3. You will update your LJ with the answers to the questions.
4. You will include this and an offer to interview someone else in the post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them 5 questions.

Firefox Mozilla's just decided to stop playing sound again. I remember [livejournal.com profile] blizzardcake reporting similar hiccups a good long while back, so I'm laying the fault at Foxy. Explorer works fine. I am disappointed, Firefox.

In other news, I now have 2 viewings! One's slightly over budjet (by E25) but, hey, it's not like I have opportunities thrown left, right and centre.

You know, I never said - I mentioned, but never said - how that one bar conversation with Lander went. It was last Wednesday, the day after I bumped into him and we had a falafel and I was seconds away from tears because of impending homelessness and general suckytude. I got to telling him about, well, the Globo sapiens condition, I suppose. Cut for shizzles. ) And apart from him being the voice of reason, or optimism, it was really nice to just hash it out with him, because it turns out that us internationally-raised folk aren't so common outside of select schools, and these aren't things you talk about in highschool anyway. He's the first person in my situation I've met in...ages, ever, certainly. And it was nice.

I wrote some 1000 words my Firefly Simon&River scene last night. Which means that it's finished! I'm on such a completion-high right now... The scene can hold up as a one-shot, so it's postable and everything. (I did write a scene leading up to it, but it's only necessary if I ever write the whole Jayne-fic I've got on the backburner.)

The only annoying thing is that I was absolutely sure that there was some mythological island where people forgot who they were. I thought it was from Odysseus, but I've googled and wikied and can't find it. If I'm not just making this up and anyone knows what the island is called, please share.

Also desperately trying to come up with a nickname River might have for Simon. I've been looking for nouns in Chinese, like "button" or "pillow", but not convinced. Googling "chinese term endearment" gives me nothing.

Posting the story, and its prequel, over on [livejournal.com profile] sickle_stories, but I need to find a beta before setting this puppy loose into the fanfic world.


In other news, riding the train yesterday was a most glorious experience because there was a guy - scraggly, scruffy, "starving-artist" kind of guy - softly playing the guitar all through the trip. Simply living through that made me enjoy life for a while. I was also reading ...Vikram Lall, tearing up constantly over it, so all in all it was a beautiful experience.

And as far as postgrad goes, I've been oficially rejected by U of MAryland for their BEES program. Go me.

I think I'll go meet the Firefly crew instead.

By the by, after a few hours and a constant pain-in-the-neck (literally), I made an icon/banner set for Servants of the Dark over on [livejournal.com profile] sickle_stories. I appologize in advance for the lack of an actual story to go with it, but currently the damn thing is just a mess of scenes.

I absolutely love the layout. Methinks it needs a heading-banner, though.


Icons by/from [livejournal.com profile] m_jade8, [livejournal.com profile] tanathir and [livejournal.com profile] razorbagel.

Seriously. I actually managed to get Wash, Zoe and Mal out of the bar after a month or so of writer's-procrastination. Poor suckers were so drunk...

And I've just realized I have to write two pwp scenes. One slash, for that plotless mess of guitar-playing, bath-having, free-lovin' folk. The other, however, is Jayne/Whore (which is to say, Jayne/Natasha, but that wouldn't mean anything, now would it?) I don't particularly want to write that bit but figure there's some character points I could develop with it.

Also? What kind of fanfic writer would I be if I just threw away such a chance at smut?

I've found a good breakdown of money in the Firefly 'Verse, so hopefully I'll be able to tell you how much Jayne'll have to pay Natasha.

But because the Jayne-fic has, as yet, not plot, though various sub-plots, I'll post something else now:

A/N: It's 3:41 am. This is not as edited or pruned as it should be. If I can fit it into the Jayne-fic somewhere, it'll be improved. For now, this is enoough.

This snapshot of conversation between Jayne, Mal and Simon is set when the three have to stay up through the night, possibly as a night-watch, and the two are saying how prissy and sheltered Simon wouldn't be able to stay awake.

It's really just an excuse to talk about futuristic-tattoos.

Tidbits:

I've rented Momo from Goethe with the sinking suspicion that there are no subtitles.

[livejournal.com profile] evadne_noel has finished her Bizenghast fanfic.

Finally realized why JPhoenix seemed so familiar in the press-room clip for the Golden Globe. He's acting just like Firefly's Simon Tam when flirting* with Kaylee!

Allow me to pimp a collection of some great scenes in Firefly.


The life of me:

Am currently shocked to find myself reading a Russian-mafia-cop-thriller novel (The Big Bad Wolf by James Patterson). Love the word zamochit which is, apparently, a symbolic kind of murder wherein the killer breaks every bone in the victim's body to symbolize utter domination. I try not to think about the meaning when I say it, though, 'cause man, has the book got some creepy passages. Its writing causes me to scoff sometimes, begging for less repetition and a softer use of the exclamation point, but all in all it's turning out alright.

Today on the bus home, after going to check my French exam results (not out yet), I saw two nuns get on. They crossed themselves seconds after. Should that be a comfort to me?

Which reminds me, the bank sent gran a postcard promoting some trip to Egypt, and they ended saying they wished her the blessings of Horus, Amon, Osiris and Anubis.

Now, I don't know about you, but personally I wouldn't want my presence to be brought to the attention of the gods of the dead.

Sent mom the link for the grad school in Maine, and she points out that it's on the corner of No and Where and that that might not be the best place to spend a large number of years.

Am now re-reading wikipedia's descriptions of post-grad general info and am sinking into "daunted" mode. Read more about gradschool here )


* Trying to, at least.
