So yeah, that whole "going to bed" thing I promised I'd do?

I lied.

I didn't go to bed until 6 AM.

It was awful. My bedroom faces east, and.

Oh god.

Why do I do this to myself.
Totally stole this one from urban_anchorite, I admit it.

Give me one of my own stories, and a timestamp sometime in the future after the end of the story, or sometime in the past before the story started, and I'll write you at least a hundred words of what happened then, whether it's five minutes before the story started or ten years in the future.

I'm going to go to bed now, I promise.
Found this meme somewhere on my f-list, though it looked like fun. Have at.

Make up a title for a story I didn't write, and I will respond with details of those non-written stories. You may, if you like, include details, such as pairings or fandom or whatnot.
So hey, I've also been doing the fanficcy thing. XD

This is probably my priority fandom project at the moment; it's a Homestuck AU, set in a universe where psionic trolls run things, blue and indigobloods are enslaved, and seadwellers live at an early Bronze age level of technology. It was originally supposed to be a relatively simple Aradia/Equius fic, but then I started to think about the culture of the setting and it kind of exploded on me, just like every other fic I've tried to write in the last four years. It just keeps happening. XD

The title of this fic is "Dirt in the Sky", but I'm putting under the tag "Land of the Meek" to represent the entire series.

EDIT: I was thinking about how cumbersome my tags list was, so I went and deleted the whole thing. Time to start over in a way that actually makes sense!

Going back to school~

Yesterday I filled out a form on the Art Institute of Seattle's website, asking for more info on their audio production program, and I got a call from their admissions department TODAY. I hope I didn't give off a bad impression by not being more on the ball, but I really don't know my schedule for the next couple of weeks because the managers at work haven't posted it yet. I'll ask about it when I go down there to pick up my groceries tomorrow. The assistant director sounded nice, though. Will hopefully get to speak to her in person soon.

So yeah. How's everyone doing? I'm like three weeks behind on my f-list, sorry about that.

Oh my god, Marvel. Never stop turning out awesome movies, PLEASE!
It's still kind of cold outside, but you wouldn't know it from all the flowers that are coming out. The sidewalk outside my store are choked with daffodils and dandelions (yes, I know that's a weed. I don't care, they're still pretty) and one of the houses I walk by on the way to the library had all these beautiful purple flowers that are shaped like triangles, along with a small patch of pretty white ones that are shaped like stars. It's so beautiful; I wish I had glasses so I could see them better. XD

There is an upside to not having them, though; I picked up a copy of Tron Legacy last week, and thanks to my crappy vision didn't notice anything wrong with Jeff Bridges' face at all! Not that I would have cared; the movie was good enough that I'm willing to give the CGIers a small pass in that department. But now I really want to watch the original movie again, and from the looks of things Disney's been cracking down, because it's basically impossible to find on-line. Maybe one of the local Blockbusters has a copy.

Icon unrelated to all of the above; I just thought it was too adorable not to use. XD
So I dusted off Mirror Ocean and got back to work on chapter two. I'm having a few issues with it, mostly finding a good speaking voice for Fox and trying to decide how much exposition goes into the dialogue and how much into the narration -- they know all of this already! but sharing intel you both already know is a staple of MGS radio conversations! -- as well as a small plot hole I only just recently became aware of. Hopefully I'll be able to resolve it with handing Liquid Snake the idiot ball later. Anyway, here's the first five hundred words, so...I don't know, maybe someone'll get some enjoyment out of it.

Related to the forum adventure I mentioned in my last post: I spent my evening looking at enormous anthropomorphized horse dick.

And when I say enormous, I'm taking skyscraper-sized.

Why is this even a thing? I don't get it.

Since I've had a couple people ask, no I am staying silent because I'm sick, homeless, or whatever other disaster your paranoid minds might have cared to conjure. XD I'm just not going through a very bloggable phase in my life right now. My financial situation is more or less stable (or at least it will be until my coworkers start coming back from maternity leave) but I'm still not making enough to do anything especially interesting. I even had to quit ballet because I couldn't afford to weekly trips up to Seattle. :( I've been looking for a second part-time or a full-time job, but so far with no success. What parts of my brain haven't been concerned themselves with money have been burying themselves, ostrich-like, into fandom. Mostly porn. This is how I know I'm an adult. XD

All hasn't been completely grey and dreary, though. I picked up the first volume of the Scott Pilgrim comic a few weeks ago, and was surprised to find it a fun, if shallow read. Definitely brain candy; I was expecting some kind of, I don't know, cerebral indie extravaganza or something from all the hype. Will definitely be picking up volume two next month, though.

I've always started teaching myself how to crochet, and I've begun writing an adventure on the MSPA forum, which in this context basically means I'm writing an interactive fanfic. It can be read here: http://www.mspaforums.com/showthread.php?37389-Out-of-Severed-Cloth-an-HS-inspired-text-adventure Feel free to post commands either over there or in the comments here, and I'll incorporate them into the story.

Hopefully I'll also soon start poking at projects I was forced to put on the backburner last fall. I've missed working on Mirror Ocean in particular, but there's a couple other things I'd like to start working on again. And...I guess that's about it. ^^
