ravyn_ashling: [almost famous] anita - one day, you'll be cool. (i love blondes whut 8D)
Every time I have to go somewhere after work that isn't simply dinner or a movie with a few close friends, I get this irrational feeling of dread where I have bit of trouble breathing and can't concentrate very well on anything else until I'm already on my way to the event/place. Heh, remnants of GAD, gtfo plzkthxbai.

That being said, [livejournal.com profile] aesires and the other ladies of SPIDERSILK PRODUCTIONS are launching their new art exhibit ACID ASYLUM in Makati today, and another good friend from high school Sarah Joy (link goes to her Tumblr; go listen to her awesome singing!) will be performing at the event as well, so that's going be cool. Reis has already had some of her paintings reserved by a collector, which is thrilling, and I'm super super proud of and inspired by her for working really hard and going after what she wants. ♥

Anyway, since we're already talking about art, here are a couple of my comparatively less-than-impressive attempts at it (shh, but I'm still quite happy with them ok) lately:


Characters/Pairing: Mordred
Rating: T (because my team mate says the snake is too fucking scary for her and there's some blood)
Summary/Notes: Done for [livejournal.com profile] drawmelot's Celtic Animal Project.

{ Mordred and the Adder }


Title: You put your arms around me, and I'm home.
Characters/Pairing: Arthur/Merlin
Rating: G
Summary/Notes: Back huuuuug! :D

{ You put your arms around me, and I believe that it's easier for you to let me go. }

My boss finally told us that he will be leaving the company by April. Ah well, que sera sera, life must go on, it's not the end of the world, fuck it. I passed my grad school exams anyway! Just waiting the department to call me for an interview. Yay~

PS. CONGRATULATIONS TO MY WAIFU AND BBDOLL [livejournal.com profile] ionnesaysrawr for having recently graduated from uni! Now stop making like Bakanishi and get back here on LJ and keep my ドキドキ 輝く bedside warm and poppin' again, betch.


B(


... I may have slightly taken over the PERVERT SUGAR tag on Tumblr last night.

ETA. Colin and Katie and not-the-right-Bradley's photoshoot: liking about half of it now, still running away from the rest. Yup.

ETA2. Man, I wish we had UK's Celebrity Deal or No Deal instead, if only so I could see Tom Hopper being all nervous and shit on a game show.

So. Colin in the Lady Magazine video? Not my favourite thing yet. I think I'll have to wait for the actual photos to surface before I can join everyone in cursing his existence and dying from his glorious face, because right now I'm not feeling like the video is doing him justice. (Basically, I look at Colin and I see S L E A Z E and immediately want to run far far away while punching things. Issues, issues, personal issues.)

I am, however, totally with [livejournal.com profile] lolafeist in wanting a Merlin jazz AU with sex and the slinky-like dancing and all that, well, all that jazz. Preferably with pompous aristocrat Arthur, and Merlin as Jack Dawson. Y/Y/MFY?


fucking hellnghhhh.

WELL. COUNTDOWN FAIL. XD I've been so busy panicking over my [livejournal.com profile] merlin_games submission that I had not been able to make time for an update yesterday. Ah, but at least I managed to finish my entry even if it took me until the last minute of the deadline to submit everything. D8 Although I just looked at my work again, and I could have done so many things so much better still. Curse you RL-defined time restrictions! (Also, to [livejournal.com profile] moiraes's point about how one should never look at their work again after submission, curse you bad habit of mine!)

I still haven't signed up for [livejournal.com profile] paperlegends and I'm starting to think I won't be at all. I'll have to be dealing with grad school soon enough, and I'm not sure how well I'll be able to manage my time when that happens. But we'll see. Artist sign ups remain open until April 1st, and I can be so weak for you, fandom.

--Just went to turn down the air conditioning in my brothers' room, and I stepped on their Buzz Lightyear on the way out and slammed one of their drawers on my fingers in the process. OH I AM IN PAIN I AM IN SO. MUCH. OIANIN.. ffs.

TWO DAYS until we launch our official website. For now, please check the following out for updates:

If Shiki ^ were into girls, I'd totally date him. :P



[Error: unknown template qotd]

I don't know who mine is (my RL friends who know JE used to say I look like a RyoKame lovechild o_o), but look what I came across as I was checking my f-list last night:


8DDD;;;


Obviously they're both awesome dudes, too. EDIT. Find out just how awesome Yara is here! (I hope you don't mind me including a bit of your post in the screencap, [livejournal.com profile] yararanger! HEART_BEAN HUGS FOR MY SWEET POTATO just because. ♥)

My body kind of shut off on me at approximately 3 o'clock this afternoon. Too much work, not enough sleep (stayed up all night reading [livejournal.com profile] cruentum's Edit the Sad Parts (beautiful, beautiful fic ;_;)), obvious reasons. Tonight I pledge to finish my [livejournal.com profile] merlin_games piece and sleep before midnight. Yes.

Chatted with my friend [livejournal.com profile] strawberrychainsaw about ~things~ today, and she told me re: last night's LJ post to "CONFESS GIN CONFESS!!!" while waving a hypothetical Bible at my face. XDD Yeaaaah, that's not happening though.

Random realisation of the day: If [livejournal.com profile] copperiisulfate and I swapped brains it wouldn't make that big of a difference. Her brain + my brain = no more feeling like such lonely weirdos, wot.


i just want to walk beside them forever with a blower in each of my hands.

HAPPY DRAGON YEAR, EVERYONE! :D


I take special pride in having been born a(n earth) dragon because, HELLO, LEGENDARY MYSTICAL CREATURE. 8D Also I like to imagine being under Merlin's command. ;) My CNY resolutions: work much much harder for the things that truly matter, establish a much much stronger relationship with the people I love (read: talk more openly with them and stop being such an emotionally-constipated freak), and be braver. I can do this.

Anyway! Today is a holiday, but I'm still feeling pretty damn tired and I wish I didn't have to go to work tomorrow. And the rest of the week. If I can have my way, I'll just isolate myself in a room for days and read all the fic and draw all the art and just sleep and nibble on choice snacks in between. But for now I have to work my ten-and-a-half-hour day, finish design commissions, and accomplish my grad school application.

I am actually also planning on trying for a scholarship to Central European University next year. Their gender studies program looks promising, I can possibly specialize in queer theory if I want to, and I've heard good things about the school, so... Lol. STUDYING: IT TURNS ME ON.


In other news, lookit! We have a new puppy:



Named him Blond Junno after this idiot, but hey_cee@Twitter calls him "BJ" so we can pretend that he's also called "Bradley James". XD He's a two-month-old golden retriever and labrador mix, adorably round and at the moment nearly smaller than legos. He's only been with us a week (I shall miss him during the days that I am not at home), but he's already just as much a part of the family as these two rascals, who have a love/terrified-of relationship with him right now. It's very amusing to watch.

Speaking of watching things, I still cannot relate to everyone's Reichenbach feels because MURPHY D8 (aka work, more work, most? And my room being taken away from me because of my great aunts and uncles visiting again. Why'd I decide to go back to living with my grandfolks again? Lol my life. I did manage to go out with friends at some point, which... awesome.) I got to watch the latest episode of Glee on TV this morning, though. Which TOTALLY NOT THE SAME THING, but I just had to say: can they just stick to performing musical numbers, please? Because they're actually still good with those.

Oh, and I've been reading the Hunger Games trilogy so I won't be a total n00b while watching the movie in March April. I've been hearing a bit of disappointment from some people about the final book, but for now I'm quite enjoying what I'm reading, though I suppose I can do without the excessive romance. Ah well, whatevs. Dystopian fiction is like fodder to me.


Also, lmao, the shit fans notice:

Fifth day of the new year from the future, hello!

Pre-grad school woes here. )




I'm not sure how many of you have heard of Sendong (international name: Washi), the typhoon that took the lives of over 1,000 people and the homes of thousands more here in our country. The place where disaster hit is very far away from where I or any of my loved ones live, but watching and reading the news about it had been sickeningly devastating nonetheless, and still is.

To be honest--and I feel a little ashamed to say this now--I had not been expecting there to be any fandom relief efforts here on LJ for the victims of the typhoon, so it was a pleasant surprise when I found out that there are actually two ongoing at the moment:


[livejournal.com profile] help_pilipinas has offerings from writers and artists from the Johnny's Entertainment fandom. Offering posts are already closed for this auction, as they have started with bidding on January 1st and will be ending the round on the 16th. If you're a JE fan and would like to donate, and receive a fanwork featuring your favourite idol, pairing or group in return, then head on over to this community now.


[livejournal.com profile] help_mindanao caters to all fandoms and features offerings for even non-fandom items. Auction posts have been up since December 30 and will remain open until January 20. You can still offer fanworks and other items here. Read their FAQ here.
I was not able to make it to the offering of [livejournal.com profile] help_pilipinas, but you can find my thread in [livejournal.com profile] help_mindanao here, here, and here. I was not planning on offering anything for the auctions, since I usually take too long to finish my piece (I still owe [livejournal.com profile] rheasilvia and [livejournal.com profile] chaosmaka theirs), but because there has only been a small amount of offerings for this auction, I've decided to put up my own as well.

If you are willing to wait for your artwork to be turned over, you can bid on my art. But what I think would really help at this point is if we can get more offerings and promotion for the project.

Thanks in advance to anyone who helps in any way they can!




I had a blast participating in [livejournal.com profile] merlin_holidays again this year (though I still need to read all the fic D8)! Can you guess which work is mine? ;D

Oh, and HAPPY BIRTHDAY to [livejournal.com profile] hungerpunch! ILU, LO. KEEP ROCKING. ♥

Arrived at work to my team mates wearing purple yesterday. A conversation went something like this:

Them: Oy, Gin. Why are you in black?
Me: WHAT THE FUCK YOU GUYS I SAID TO WEAR PURPLE ON THE 20th IT'S ONLY THE 17th! D8<

Still. It was really sweet of them to care, I guess. Anyway, it did say on GLAAD's website to wear purple through October 20, not just on. *waves to [livejournal.com profile] ryogrande as well* XD

Have gone back to living with my grandparents again because I am a impoverished little bastard with no capacity to pay rent without killing myself from hunger (um, and I suppose the tendency to splurge on books and clothes has something to do with that, too--except it doesn't, because I can't even get myself a copy of the latest ASoIF book...s after GoT, l-lol. I AM A STARVING ARTIST (except I'm not really), HOW DOES MY KIND EVEN STILL EXIST. erm.)

Also, the commute from the condo we were renting was hella exhausting. One and half hours when traffic was being a bitch. Which was every fucking day, basically.

The only thing I hate about this new arrangement is that I don't get to live with [livejournal.com profile] dadomz anymore. No more crazed midnight sexcapades, boo.

Watched No. 6 following [livejournal.com profile] copperiisulfate's recommendation, and it was lovely. There were a couple things that left me scratching my head in confusion, but overall I enjoyed its wonderful mixture of shounen anime themes and, well, shounen ai.

It's something that I constantly long to see in most shows I follow, getting to watch the (gay/bi) subtext unfold into the actual "text" of the story (if you're friends with [livejournal.com profile] saramir, head on over to her very sound rant on the subject here), and includes spoilery things if you've only just begun reading Young Avengers, X-Men, Villains United, Manhunter, and watching Torchwood and Glee )

Which is why I'm inviting you all to participate in [livejournal.com profile] rachelmanija's Permanent Floating YA Diversity Book Clubs project. I know, I know I said popular shows, but this project deals with Young Adult novels, which I believe is a good enough venue to start as well.

People always treat LGBTQ themes in media as if they're vessels of the devil or someshit, I am widely aware of that. (The regulatory board in the Philippines still censors television scenes that show girls kissing other girls or boys kissing other boys on the cheek. I had to download episodes online back when I still liked Glee, even though they featured match airings here, because intimate scenes between Santana and Brittany would be cut out.) It was a bit surprising for me, though, to find out that the same is widespread in the literary world as well. Hopefully if more people talk about the importance of having good LGBTQ examples in books, especially young adult fiction, we can change that and give a better access for the youth (who, especially in these times, need it very much) so LGBTQ teens hopefully won't feel so alone and, along with everyone else, become more educated in the understanding of LGBTQ people.

Lol, rambly today. I'm not sorry. :P HERE, have [livejournal.com profile] hermette's Merlin Fandom Primer! :D My fellow Merlin aficionados, help us pimp out our shiny to the world (if you haven't already)! My JE homies, Inception buddies, HP fen and other non-Merlin-crazy friends: hop on over and be converted! 8DDDDb



you know you want to tap that sir dat ass

I AM A STARVING ARTIST (except I'm not really), HOW DOES MY KIND EVEN STILL EXIST. erm.)

Also, the commute from the condo we were renting was hella exhausting. One and half hours when traffic was being a bitch. Which was every fucking day, basically.

The only thing I hate about this new arrangement is that I don't get to live with [livejournal.com profile] dadomz anymore. No more crazed midnight sexcapades, boo.

Watched No. 6 following [livejournal.com profile] copperiisulfate's recommendation, and it was lovely. There were a couple things that left me scratching my head in confusion, but overall I enjoyed its wonderful mixture of shounen anime themes and, well, shounen ai.

It's something that I constantly long to see in most shows I follow, getting to watch the (gay/bi) subtext unfold into the actual "text" of the story (if you're friends with [livejournal.com profile] saramir, head on over to her very sound rant on the subject here), and includes spoilery things if you've only just begun reading Young Avengers, X-Men, Villains United, Manhunter, and watching Torchwood and Glee )

Which is why I'm inviting you all to participate in [livejournal.com profile] rachelmanija's Permanent Floating YA Diversity Book Clubs project. I know, I know I said popular shows, but this project deals with Young Adult novels, which I believe is a good enough venue to start as well.

People always treat LGBTQ themes in media as if they're vessels of the devil or someshit, I am widely aware of that. (The regulatory board in the Philippines still censors television scenes that show girls kissing other girls or boys kissing other boys on the cheek. I had to download episodes online back when I still liked Glee, even though they featured match airings here, because intimate scenes between Santana and Brittany would be cut out.) It was a bit surprising for me, though, to find out that the same is widespread in the literary world as well. Hopefully if more people talk about the importance of having good LGBTQ examples in books, especially young adult fiction, we can change that and give a better access for the youth (who, especially in these times, need it very much) so LGBTQ teens hopefully won't feel so alone and, along with everyone else, become more educated in the understanding of LGBTQ people.

Lol, rambly today. I'm not sorry. :P HERE, have [livejournal.com profile] hermette's Merlin Fandom Primer! :D My fellow Merlin aficionados, help us pimp out our shiny to the world (if you haven't already)! My JE homies, Inception buddies, HP fen and other non-Merlin-crazy friends: hop on over and be converted! 8DDDDb

Right. Most everyone's already had their thinky thoughts and feelings up on their own LJs, and I kind of spent the day just sitting here replaying scenes of the latest episode, thinking, "WHAT IS A THOUGHT PROCESS? I HAVE NO RECOLLECTION OF BEING CAPABLE OF THAT." And I tried and I tried to list down what I liked (I loved most everything about it), but then somewhere along the way this sort of epiphany regarding Merlin and Arthur/Gwen happened and now I feel too exhausted to come up with anything but spoilers, hobvzly )
