I've got a huge backlog of fanfic that I'd been meaning to crosspost to my lj, but never got around to it. Until now, anyway. XD Most of what I've got is Homestuck, so apologies if that isn't your fandom of choice. I'll try to get back around to working on some of my other fandoms again.

Fandom: Homestuck
Series: Land of the Meek
Fic: Dirt in the Sky, chapter four

Shout to one and all from the campus of the Art Institute, where I am attending my very first class on Audio Technology!

The teacher is...not a very good speaker. :/ But he's a pro in the field, so I'm sure I'll learn a lot once I get used to his, uh...particular style of teaching. Yeah.

How's everyone doing???? Sorry I haven't been around, tumblr ate my brain. And also I found a job! I'm a pro fundraiser now!
Looks like it's time for another update on the college front!

I went back up to Seattle yesterday to take my math placement test (I got a 56. ;_;) get my picture taken for my photo ID (I look almost exactly like my mother! This is cool, because she's a damn handsome lady.) and finish registration. I am now officially a student at The Art Institute! Yay!

I also received my tentative class schedule -- I really hope they stick with this one, because having both my classes on Monday would be soooooo convenient. So convenient you guys.

The job and apartment search continues, unsuccessfully so far but it's only been a couple of weeks. If we get to September 15 and I still haven't found a job THEN I'll start panicking. I'm fairly confident it won't get to that point, though; the admissions counselor introduced me to a woman in the financial department who's going to help fine tune my resume and look for work. So really when you look at all the factors at play here, everything's sailing pretty smoothly thus far. Now if only I could convince my stomach of that. XD; Maybe I'd be able to sleep more easily at night.
Ah, delicious irony. First time in a month that I actually have something to talk about on my lj, and the whole site slows to a standstill. Darn Russians! /fist shake

Anyway, what I wanted to say is that I had a meeting with the financial aid department at the Art Institute yesterday -- *checks clock* okay, the day before yesterday -- and my attendance in the fall is all but a done deal. I can only afford to take two classes at this point due to a bunch of complicated monetary shenanigans that nobody's really interested in, but I'm applying to every scholarship I can find and my mom said she'd try to slip me some money under the table like, plus I'll of course be working at the same time, so hopefully things'll work out.

The real part that worries me is the move. Even renting a bedroom from homeowners in one of the smaller cities that Seattle's swallowed over the decades costs upwards of $400 a month, plus utilities, and nearly everyone on craigslist is asking for at least two months rent up front. This is only sensible, but it puts me in a real bind, due to the fact that I'm only working twenty hours a week and have no savings. Finding a really nice middle-aged couple and playing the pity card might work; I'm really good at getting people my parent's age to start feeling parental, though thinking about it kind of makes me feel bad. What I'd really like, though, is a shared apartment with other students in the area; I'd really like to start making some local friends my own age. Not that you all aren't lovely, but...idk. I've been feeling really isolated this year, with nobody I could just hang out with without careful pre-planning several weeks in advance. Me, a social creature? Who'd have thought.

In other news, there's a red dot on my right calf a bit smaller than a dime that itches. It seems to be a simple bug bite, but I am Suspicious and Watching It Closely. This would be a really shitty time to get MRSA again.

So I made a thing based on this pesterlog some Anon on the Homesmut kink meme wrote.

The fic: http://community.livejournal.com/homesmut/4645.html?thread=1347109#t1347109

The thing:

truly an epic for our time

So I'm working on YET ANOTHER HOMESTUCK AU. This time it's a fusion of HS and the Tron movies; I have no idea why I haven't seen anyone working on something like this yet. It's been HOW long since we got a good look at Mindfang? For shame fandom.

Anyway, tonight I talked it over with Tamiko:

What you should all be taking away from this is the fact that I have a HUGE thing for unrequited love. That is like the fastest way to ensure I will sympathize with a character.

I also really like it when living characters are partially and painlessly encased inside walls. It just looks cool.
Someday I will be able to post a fic without spending five minutes tearing my hair out as I struggle to remember how lj cuts work.
Dirt in the Sky, chapter two
3,653 words

In this exciting installment of Drake's self-indulgent and over-plotted slavefic AU, Equius makes a new friend and Nepeta receives a death threat. Some cursing and blood.
