alias_sqbr: And yet all I can think is this will make for a great dreamwidth entry. (dreamwidth)
This time by [tumblr.com profile] faejilly. I quite like the questions on this one, especially since it doesn't make any false assumptions eg that I'm in highschool.

From [tumblr.com profile] capillata. This has been sitting in my tabs so long I forgot it was even there. BUT I GOT TO IT EVENTUALLY.

From [tumblr.com profile] nilhmai. She tagged me a while ago but I was in the middle of colonoscopy prep and all my answers would have been "SOLID FOOD".

1. Eating and food, still :) I think I get more of a kick out of it than a lot of other people? I'm a total comfort eater too. My diet's much more restricted than it was when I could eat piles of (or any) chocolate but there's still lots of stuff that makes me really happy, like fresh mangoes and cake and...ok I need to stop now before I feel the need to get up and eat something haha.

2. Creating things. Writing, drawing, and various random things I've been more briefly obsessed with like wire crochet. There's nothing like having an idea in my head and seeing it take form into something I can share with the world, and the process is always full of happy surprises.

3. Being around happy people. I'm very much an extrovert in that respect, I don't even have to be talking to them but if they're happy because of me it makes it even better. I love being the center of attention of a large happy crowd.

4. Cats and (other people's) babies. SO CUTE. And easy to please!

5. getting tired, so tempted to just write "SLEEPING" here and be done but uh...being transported by a fictional narrative. Too sleepy to describe why it's awesome but I assume you all know what I'm talking about.

I was tagged by [tumblr.com profile] nilhmai but am totally ignoring the tag ten people bit myself because it's too hard. I have decided to define "OTP" as a pairing I not only like but am so invested in I find it hard to see the characters with other people. I'm generally a multishipper so these are rare!

Anne/Diana from Anne of Green Gables: I haven't consumed the canon in literal decades but it was deeply formative and I still feel a DEEP SENSE OF RESENTMENT any time I am reminded that Anne/Gilbert is canon.

Chell/GlaDOS from Portal: Have I mentioned how much I like robot/human femslash enemy ships?

Dave/Terezi from Homestuck: I don't ship it as hard any more due to canon shenanigans but ohhh did I love it in the day. I can ship them both with other people, but there will always be a small part of me going "But where is Terezi/Dave?" (LIKE SAY AT THE END OF CANON)

Leliana/Morrigan from Dragon Age: the ship I have the most works for at the AO3, even though they never liked each other much in canon and there's more supported f/f I could be shipping instead. And they got EVEN MORE PERFECT for each other in DAI, the subtle similarities I saw in Origins were teased out in really interesting ways. Shout-out to (Isabela/)Fenris/Mef!Hawke as the Dragon Age ship that consumed me the most emotionally.

Darcy/Elizabeth from Pride and Prejudice: such a great example of an initially combatitive pairing that ends up genuinely perfect for each other. I have enjoyed so many versions of them getting together and am still enthusiastic at the prospect of more.

Honourable mentions: Root/Shaw from Person of Interest, Utena/Anthy from Revolutionary Girl Utena, Sam/EDI from Mass Effect, Ahiru/Rue from Princess Tutu, Mary/Anne from Pride and Prejudice, Zuko/Mai from Avatar the Last Airbender, Zen/Obi/Shirayuki from Akagami no Shirayukihime (mainly because I'm into it right now I don't know how I'll feel later), Magneto/Xavier from Xmen (probably my first m/m ship), and f!Shepard/Tali from Mass Effect

I think I may have done this before, but I have written new things since then. Stolen from various people on tumblr. Some of these are original fiction, but I write that exactly the same way as fic.
  1. I saw Dee again today.
  2. Maisie was in no mood for a ball.
  3. It was getting easier to shoot people.
  4. Cassandra was halfway through her second set of sword exercises before she realised someone was quietly trying to get her attention.
  5. "You know that's not your heart right?"
  6. "So...how are things in Kirkwall?" asked Varric, like it was no big deal.
  7. He was dreaming again.
  8. She caught her up in a punishing kiss.
  9. "That is a pretty belt, Cassandra," said Leliana. "Did your secret admirer give it to you?"
  10. They made the loveliest pair of brides Georgiana had ever seen.

And since I posted the finished fic recently but it's actually the first first line I ever posted to the AO3: "Mary Bennet was a very accomplished girl."

In my defense, 8 starts with an excerpt from a deliberately bad romance novel. I was tempted to add the comma that is, in retrospect, CLEARLY missing from 5 but that wouldn't be an accurate reflection of my writing style haha.

Overall I seem to write pretty boring first lines. Many of these are far more interesting in conjunction with the second line, though, eg for 1, "They were so thin, their skin dry as dust, and I could not bear to look them in the eye."

"In a text post, list ten fics that have stayed with you in some way. Don’t take but a few minutes, and don’t think too hard — they don’t have to be the “right” works, or even all the same pairing or fandom, just the fics that have touched you or that stuck with you somehow."

From tumblr. Chosen by going through my bookmarks and seeing which ones jumped out at me. A lot of these are VERY OLD since I have gotten harder to wow as I've read more fic. Sixteen not ten because don't make me chooooose. And yes there is a suprsing amount of Stargate considering I don't actually like the canon, when I first got into fic that was what I encountered the most of and the fandom produced a wide range of interesting stuff. (Also lots of robots which should not be surprising at all)

Wrote some semi original fiction omg! One for the Jukebox "write a story about a song" exchange, another for a writing meme I made up myself. Also did some art for that limited palette meme that's been going around tumblr, which was super fun.

Spare Change (1393 words), The Man Who Sold the World, Teen And Up, Horror, Fantasy, Original Fiction, Fanfiction, Inspired by Music, Genderqueer Character
Summary:Two friends meet by chance long after both have died.

The Most Talked About Night Of The Season (5355 words) G, No Warnings, Fantasy, Regency, Happy Ending, Fae & Fairies, Non-Graphic Violence
Summary: Maisie was in no mood for a ball. She always felt like a fool in formal wear. The ball was full of Pixies and Slyphs looking lovely in ensembles much like hers, but delicate ringlets and a ruffled dress were far less flattering on a seven foot tall Lob covered in hair.

A colouring tutorial

Literally every comment on Spare Change has used the word "creepy" :D On one hand I'm quite happy with the story, on the other hand want to stop thinking about it so I can GET THAT SONG OUT OF MY HEAD.

And now....art!
Edward Scissorhands, Iron Man,Bastion, Mass Effect, Dragon Age, Fresh Pretty Cure )

Two memes!

I am bored and sleepy, give me something to do!

1) Art prompts with colour schemes!

2) Let’s play Burn Read Rewrite. It’s like Kill Fuck Marry, but with books. (idea for dreamwidthing it from [personal profile] skygiants)

For owlmoose. I am feeling super tired, so this is just going to be some off the top of my head rambles. I am SURE I am going to realise some of this is wrong later. I start with some discussion of the difference between art and writing since I can't see any way not to.

So. The thing with original art is that the art world is SUPER WEIRD.
