It's been Stormaggedon here in the Philippines for the past... week? Weeks? and I have spent this one so far this way:
  • Monday | went on leave for fear of dying from flying roofs and falling tree trunks; then it turned out that the typhoon had already subsided in the Metro, and i beat myself up over having wasted my leave that way. Dad (who normally discourages going on a leave for reasons that are not near-paralytic illness) said not to fret about it, though, since it was raining like a fucking deadly thing on our side of the country so I was eventually able to enjoy my rest day in peace. Relatively.
  • Tuesday | took advantage of the fairly decent weather and finally submitted my scholarship application for grad school--at super speed over lunch. *FINGERS CROSSED* Went to dinner with Potthead friends to celebrate Harry P's 32nd birthday, had an encounter with an idiot cab driver on the way home, and ended up walking the whole kilometer to the train station instead. Instant exercise! Watched the latest episode of Teen Wolf, and flailed and cried inside.
  • Wednesday | Fucking. Overslept. Thanks, Stiles.
    Thursday morning - present time | Celebrating "Buwan ng Wikang Pambansa (Month of the National Language)" with friends by speaking purely in Filipino (including non-English-based slang) on Plurk and having a good, hearty, side-splitting laugh about it. We're giving [livejournal.com profile] aesires til sundown before she cracks from the challenge, and starts spouting English again and nothing but Filipino curses instead. (Most Filipinos have gotten so used to mixing the national language with English that it has become extremely difficult to keep speaking in pure Filipino while keeping a straight face.)

Tonight I'll be seeing Brave with a couple of said friends. Excite! :D Meridaaaaa. Can't wait to love youuuuu ♥


Speaking of Clint and Natasha's lovechild, I've been encountering a lot of wank over the upcoming (is it still apt to call it 'upcoming' if it's still about two years away?) Winter Soldier movie lately, a lot of it from people who are afraid that Bucky Barnes will bring in the "ruin" of the Clint/Natasha and Steve/Tony ships, and this just... bothers me. This post pretty much sums up what I feel about it and, as the OP writes about as well, the frustration of Black Widow fans over Natasha not getting her own movie before Bucky.

Basically, (1) I'm with the people in support of more female and POC leads in superhero movies, but I refuse to do this by shitting on characters that actually have a very interesting arc and especially whom I have grown to love; (2) I think ship wars are stupid and pointless, and I'm just going to my corner and enjoy my Avengers love in peace with people who are in the fandom for the love and fun as well, okay? Okay.



ANYWAY. More pleasant stuff: This Teen Wolf meta about the classical elements in the show, and how next season could just be the year of Stiles makes me miss being in lit class at uni; and this spoken word performance about the expectations and realities of love makes me miss performance lit class like endlessly burning. Why did I decide to do a business-related post-grad again? ;_;

ravyn_ashling: [almost famous] anita - one day, you'll be cool. (Default)
I'm on vacation for Easter hols and online only on mobile right now, which is actually a lot more than I'd been while at home for the past two days where I pretty much spend the day just eating and helping Mum take care of the kids and do the chores and making sure she and my sister don't kill each other. XD

It would have been the same deal even now that we're here at my dad's resort (it's not really his, he just runs the place), only with swimming, but I kind of... incapacitated myself by accidentally tripping on our rusty old fence and cutting my toe deeply enough that I had to be taken to the ER for it.

There'd been live updates with photographic evidence of the injury on my Twitter (look for @ravynash if we aren't following each other already.) Basically, I had to get three stitches and anti-tetanus shots while my adorable sassy doctor flirted with the cute nurse (according to my mum at least; he wasn't really my type) and told me what a brave girl I was being, he's sorry if the anesthetic shot hurt like a bitch (it was only second to the pain I had to endure while they SCRAPED my wound clean), and not to worry because I'll surely feel the pain again once the anesthesia wears out.

So now I get to be a princess for two days until I have to get back to the city and work on Tuesday. I'm only disappointed I won't be able to take my usual laps in the pool and go biking in the woods like I normally do when we're here, but at least I have time to work on my fan projects? If the pain killers don't knock me out for most of our stay. (I don't really need them, though. They didn't use to call me "Robo Gin" during my football varsity days for nothing.)

This was my face right after the nerve-wracking ordeal with live streams so I could catch the Merlin series premiere in real time last night (3AM today if you take into account my, as [livejournal.com profile] chaosmaka calls it, being from the future). You could tell how much pain and suffering I had been in, to keep myself awake, in the way my eyes are wide open as I smile and twitch about.

It was all very much worth it though, as the episode was fucking fantastic and, despite the fact that my stream kept making its own cliffhangers ever couple or so minutes, kept me glued to the edge of my seat from all the feelings. Downloaded a copy at once when I woke up some few hours later, and watched it again with better focus and even greater appreciation with my little brothers:


(shh, i'm Gwaine.)


Had an early birthday dinner celebration with my family at a nearby Japanese place today. RYUMA is our very own version of Little Tokyo in Makati down here at the south, only a lot more colourful and with more exciting things to do especially if you have kids with you. It's like having a regular every day matsuri (festival) right in your backyard, really.

My brothers usually go home with new toys or stroller bags and even got a free bicycle once before, but today they were also able to experience these )

At home I had a couple bottles of Tanduay Ice Alcomix with my dad and mum. Mum, having a very low tolerance for alcohol, was surprised to learn that I used to drink a lot at uni. Which is odd because I always told them whenever I had been planning to, and they always gave me permission and never seemed to mind whenever I got home at three in a morning simply passing out in the living room couch. WHICH led me to wonder whether I'd been mistaken all these years and my parents (or mum at least) had not necessarily trusted me to party "responsibly" with my college buddies all those years, and I had been only short of a rebel. 8D orz.

Anyway, I bought myself new shoes ) Buying yourself your own presents ftmfw! XD;; Also waiting for my rainbow beanie to arrive, so [livejournal.com profile] azhrien-papan and I could camwhore as a ghei father-and-son duo with our matching Pride beanies and blond frocks once and for all. T3Tb

And finally... [Merlin S04E02 spoilers] PLEASE EXCUSE ME WHILE I DIE ON THE SPOT. DDDDDDDDDDDDDDD'8

TARSIERS, GUYS! i simply adore them.


After having just been through a ginormous ass typhoon last Tuesday, another one has gone in and wreaked its own havoc again today. Woot, woot, hello tropical cyclone #17. (Or is this the 30th this year already, technically speaking?) Thank fuck it's the weekend and I get to stay with my folks where, with the exception of potential blackouts and huge-ass gusts of winds and rain swinging the branches off trees if worse comes to worst, we're still pretty much untouchable. People up north, though... not so lucky. But, well, Filipinos, y'know? We can probably smile our way through everything.

First time watching a romantic comedy in a cinema (which I'd also visited for the first time then) when my sister got free tickets to see Friends With Benefits last Thursday. It was surprisingly... not bad like I expected. Still would not spend half the money it costs to see it, but for something that we got to catch for free, it had been fun to watch enough. And anyway, Mila Kunis (and even that teeniest bit of Emma Stone)? Hnghhh.

Still pissed that I didn't get to catch Rakenrol (Rock n Roll) though. Curse you, typhoon and financial difficulties! I'm not sure how I exactly ended up broke as shit this month, but I think it involves rainbow beanies, way too much Persian food, and my mum. Can't wait until I'm done with this big freelance project and enjoy NOT exhausting myself with extra work for a while.

Now onto things that require blood and sweat, but none of the mind-numbingly frustrating and painful kind: ART PROJECTS! Participating in [livejournal.com profile] merlin_games as a member of [livejournal.com profile] teamhistorical, [livejournal.com profile] merlin_holidays for some good ol' cheer, and [livejournal.com profile] merlinreversebb this season. Idek anymore, Merlin fandom, I'm such a whore for you. Then there's the 30-Day Drawing Challenge I've started just today, plus pieces I owe [livejournal.com profile] rheasilvia, [livejournal.com profile] chaosmaka, [livejournal.com profile] i_know_its_0ver and [livejournal.com profile] flypaw. I have been taking the slowest fucking road with drawing lately and I seriously need to be more productive again. Hopefully getting cooler weather would help.

MERLIN AND DOCTOR WHO DAY KJHLDJAKSS:DKD LHS LHSK HYPERVENTILATION!!!!1 But mostly Merlin, really, ngl. Because those boys and their knights and the women and the sexiness all over--I just. My heart. And body. And very soul. Ohgods.

Saw Deathly Hallows Pt. 2 again with my sister the other night, and it proved to be even funnier the second time around. It was a lucky thing there had been only five or six people in the theatre, because the way I laughed after joining Voldemort in going all, "UHVUHVUH KUHDUVRUHHHH!" on Harry? Would have gotten me maimed had I done it during the premiere. *nod*

Speaking of Harry Potter, I'm participating in this year's [livejournal.com profile] hd_bigbang and I have roughly one and half weeks to finish my pieces, plus my [livejournal.com profile] reel_merlin art (sons, I am so disappoint that no one seems to know Love of Siam to give us redux fic of it) to complete within the same time frame. I'd fall into a tiny state of panic, but I'm mostly too busy falling asleep from exhaustion to do so properly. Anyway, my progress is holding up pretty damn well, all things considered, and I'm rather pleased with what I've managed to churn out so far.

Speaking of things I'm rather pleased with, a couple weeks back I posted something for HitRECord.org's Tiny Stories project and the feedback it received had been quite surprising. Being called sexist for it had been just as much as a surprise. (It's okay; I was pretty cool about it. *shrug*)

Anyway, speaking of Bigbang and Merlin, [livejournal.com profile] paperlegends has already begun posting! I haven't had a chance to read any of the fic yet, but I've seen some of the art and *_____________* EXCITEMENT.

Long fic is just what I need to distract myself from my silly hetero-inclined feelings. cut for minor rambly dramu )

Anyway, here's something I'll never be ashamed of having all the feelings for: [livejournal.com profile] lil_lollypop36 drew bb!Arthur and bb!Merlin during their first day of school ;333; ♥ ♥ ♥ ugyuuu. Brb, forever dying from cute. X'3

LOLOLOLOLOL CAN I JUST SAY? I WAS JUST PLAYING THIS SONG.

Anyway. I'd trash it, just like ol' Tumblydore and Monsieur Flamel did back in '92.



OU, UPDATES for those who give a shit!

- Three episodes later and I still haven't started with Inu wo Kau to Iu Koto wtaf I need Doctor Junno in my pants, stat. Someone point me to the direction of single DL links?


please and thank you!


- Spent Friday night til Saturday with my local fandom homies trying to marathon the fuck out of the existing Harry Potter movies, and being distracted by Shakey's mojos and too much Ron/Hermione and then not enough Ron/Hermione and, in the case of [livejournal.com profile] chibiko_panda and me, the glorious ship-cum-submarine Harry/Draco.

Speaking of [livejournal.com profile] chibiko_panda, it was bb's first time commuting via bus and I had to play bodyguard to her during the trip from our office building to the mall where [livejournal.com profile] oppugnorhr12 was picking us up. Now before all this, Hachi had only ever been driven to and from work, so I understand why she couldn't let go of my hand the entire time and freaked out a bit when a preacher came on board. (It's a common occurrence in Metro Manila, for these random people to hop on the bus and start reading from the Bible and then ask for donations after their lecture. It's bloody annoying but nothing to worry about.) Still, this was probably the single most amusing event of my week. XD I love my pampered bitches.

- Got the rest of the existing Doctor Who series from [livejournal.com profile] oppugnorhr12 as well (and managed to ninja some Queer as Folk--for educational purposes! Not enough slash fans! The world needs more colour! And gay bacon!--into her hard drive in the process) and am now ready to start with Eleven, guys, I should get an award for bad ass marathoning skills or something! Lol. Give me four to five days and I'll be ready to join you guys in flailing over the current season.

(Apparently, I'm only one of the extremely few people who adore Rose Tyler? I liked her a lot and was kind of disappointed at the ending they gave her, although I'm also one of those people who think the Doctor is ultimately unshippable. Hn.)

- Mother's Day found me treating everyone to Starbuck's frappuccinos (yay for half-price week!) and Krispy Kreme doughnuts because we are simpletons who refuse to acknowledge the risk of cavities and diabetes. (Jk, we've been very careful since dad's hospitalization; this is just a once-a-semi-yearly thing.

Of course this didn't stop me from denouncing my pretentious hipster ass ways and abusing my wallet for six days straight. The barista at the branch beside our office is really cute, okay? And she never fails to write down the correct spelling of my name. With an extra bright sunshiny smile. T^Tb)

- Hello, I am incorrigible.

- Also, as if the loony-as-fuck dilemma-addled cheering during Barcelona's game against Real Madrid last week wasn't enough (Iker--along with Petr Cech--is my favourite goalkeeper forever and Nemo is amazeballs bbcakes, stfu I can't help it), bbs are going against Manchester United on the 28th. This is the end of my sports-loving life as I know it.

- I'm pretty sure all of you have already seen [livejournal.com profile] chaosmaka's beautiful, beautiful pic spam of glorious love and crack of every single epic proportion but I'm leaving this link here anyway because it deserves all the love in the world.

Relatedly, [livejournal.com profile] ronsoftie posted this image of Gwaine doing a Eugene from Tangled, and I am SO doing a version for [livejournal.com profile] drawmelot's Animated Film / Famous Artist challenge now. Well, you know, after I finish the one I signed up for. DIDN'T I SAY I WAS INCORRIGIBLE? God, guys, you have to help me stop. I don't suppose there's an "off" button for immense fandom love, is there?


fuck, tacchon, why aren't you my girlfriend again?

ETA. FOR MY FELLOW TEA-LOVING BROS (AND HOS)

ravyn_ashling: (LE SHOQUE!)
Last Friday, my team mate had a bit of a brawl with super glue and asked if she could use my cutter to chop the tip off and set the glue loose. I lent it to her, neither of us expecting that three days later we won't be able to use it anymore.
Me: DUDE. YOU TURNED MY CUTTER INTO EXCALIBUR.
Her: Shit I'm sorry, tsong. ('tsong' = mate/buddy/uncle/bro; we take our genderbend in the office very seriously.)
Me: No, it's cool. When Arthur, our Once and Future King arrives, all will be right again.
Her: *LOLWTFKK*
Me: And if Merlin arrives with him as well, the both of them could finally ~*fulfill their destiny*~ ;3; and I'll get to witness it all and I'll be like...



Me: ... yeah.

Speaking of genderbend, eh, I don't get born-this-way genderbend at all. It's hot when Merlin accidentally turns himself into a girl and Arthur gets very curious about how his boyfriend would feel all supple and squishy and smooth and stuff, and I wouldn't stop Inception!Arthur from making forged!hotchick!Eames scream and for more of his cock inside, but if the story starts off with someone being female from birth? Totally ruins the point of shipping a slash couple.

I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one who feels this way? I don't have anything against heterosexual sex, and before anyone asks, no, nothing in particular brought this on, but I've been having this issue since Harry/Draco and just felt like getting it out now. :p I don't have very many squicks and pet peeves when it comes to fic, but this one has got to be high up on the list of the few I do and is probably the one thing, apart from horrid grammar, that will make hit the back button like--



What about you guys? What are your top fandom pet peeves? Entertain me, f-list. I have a shit tonne of work to do, and I need a little distraction or I might go crazy.

Another one of mine from Merlin fandom (although this is easily ignored and I've never allowed it to ruin the experience of reading for me) is when, in modern AU fics, Merlin and Arthur realise they were named after The King Arthur and Sorcerer Merlin, then all of a sudden AU!Arthur has a Morgana for a sister (this especially, because I do not understand why parents would name their daughter after someone who in legends tried to kill their son's namesake) and/or AU!Merlin has a Guinevere and Lancelot for friends. IDK IDK, fuck my nearly obsessive sense of logic? Anyway, it really has never stopped me from finishing and enjoying fic. It just irks me enough to make me cringe a bit.



But, no matter, Merlin fandom. Even if you do tiny things that baffle me sometimes, our love, it's a lot like this, y'know:




PS. If anyone knows who the genius behind above artwork is, I would really love to find out who they are so I may give proper worshiping and stuff. Idgaf if the artist did not intend it to be Merly and Arfur and I've actually just gotten too obsessed with this fandom to function outside of it, THEY NEED TO BE GIVEN MY DEVOTION. If only for this piece of wonder, if only for a while.

PPS. I am trying very, very, very hard to answer that versus meme thing, but I am very fickle, f-list. Like Brian Kinney. D: Only maybe less hot.

I love fire and earthquake drills because because I get to bring my usual laid back non-corporate-wearing self to work and faff around in my anti dress code ways. It doesn't matter that I'll be missing the drill itself since I'm taking the afternoon off to attend my sister's graduation ceremony; I'm just overjoyed by the presence of my skinnies and sneakers and bad ass comfy tee.

Anyhoo, random shitties!

daemon indentification meme )

that versus meme thing that doesn't have anything to do with street fighter. posting here because tumblr sucks and nobody likes me enough there to ask me anything. =)) )

eargasm meme )

No, srsly. You guys should just skip this shit. )



Hi, hi new and old friends, hiii! Apologies to anyone who's missed my craycray updates this past week; work's just been really toxic lately, as I've got piles and piles of new ads to design and revisions to do and project launch materials to oversee that I'm finding myself with very little energy to do much anything else. Fandom's not been neglected, though, because I am incorrigible and love you all too much to stay away from at least commenting as much as I can everyday.

I've also managed to start inking my [livejournal.com profile] hs_merlin art and obsessively check [livejournal.com profile] i_reversebang to find out who's claimed my art. Je suis disappoint that [livejournal.com profile] tourdefierce missed by a minute, a collab like that with Em would have been too sweet, but I'm happy that my draft got awarded to a writer in less than three. Eh, I have sheer confidence issues.

And then there's this. Motherfucking Richard Siken Fic Fest of Endless Beautiful Proportions, Gods, I cried and died and lived just to cry again. My. Heart. ♥

And, finally:

Took my brothers to the pediatrician last Saturday, and a framed quilt was sitting in their doctor's room. It read ANIMAL ABCs and had the usual stuff like cow and bear and antelope and, uh, xenopus and narwhal. And, well...



DHJKLSKDLFK THIS IS A DOCTOR'S EDUCATIONAL POSTER. GUYS. USED TO TEACH LITTLE CHILDREN ABOUT THE ANIMALS OF THE WORLD. AND THE ALPHABET OMG WHAT

SCIENCE SAYS UNICORNS EXIIIIIISSSST! Life. Complete. *promptly passes out*


Hope you're all having a happy Monday bbs. ;)

You know what? Sometimes I just really, really, really hate shipping RPS. It's because I get too emotionally invested, and when news/rumours/whatever suddenly come up about, say, one of my OTP having a girlfriend I can't stop myself from going, "BUT WHAT ABOUT ______?!?!?!" and getting really pissy the rest of the day/week/fortnight. I feel betrayed and get seriously hurt and blank out at inopportune lengths and at times even want to cry.

I'm pretty sure I'm not the only one who ever feels this way (right?), but it's really stupid and just makes me want to drop off the face of fandom forever because I hate feeling so pathetic over something I have absolutely no control of, something I shouldn't even care so much about. But yeah. I've been a slasher for more than ten years now and been into RPS for at least five, and I honestly don't think there's any turning back for me now. I just can't be arsed to let go of something I enjoy so much, even if sometimes, sometimes it pains me just as much. Lol.

/drama


Anyway! My grandparents are kicking me out of my room next week because my grandpa's brother and his wife are visiting from Virginia, and mine's the easiest to clean and safest to dwell in in the entire house. Will be camping out in my grandfather's study for the next three weeks, sleeping underneath images of the General and his gajillion medals and battle tanks. Whoopie.

The good thing about this, though, is that they really, really transformed my room to near-majesty (well, in my grandparents' standard, which really isn't saying much) to prepare for the visitors' arrival, and each time I came home this week my 1) wall's been repainted, 2) cabinets and shelves completely dusted, 3) uncle's shit finally gotten rid of, and 4) main light's fixed (dskflsd THIS--tears in my eyes here T^Tb). Definitely worth having it temporarily stolen away from me.


I'm really very nervous about signing up for grad school, primarily because idek how I'm going to balance my time from work to school or if I would have to look for a job nearer the university. I am hoping that I can talk whoever into adjusting my working schedule on specific days, even if they have to take out some of it from my salary. Because, even though the mere idea of corporate slavery makes me want to choke on my own spit, I'm kind of already attached to my boss used to my job and would like to stay on for at least a year (and a half? or two?) before I move on to brighter things. Like Rockstardom.


THIS IS THE MOST ADORABLE THING IN THE UNIVERSE FOREVER:



ETA!!! EMILY WROTE ME MERLIN/ARTHUR PORN WITH BOOKS AND VOYEURISTIC GWAINE AND JKSDHFLDSHLSDSHGKSHLGKDS.
