ravyn_ashling: [almost famous] anita - one day, you'll be cool. (kazuya)
So I'm watching Kings in the guise of motivating myself while finishing my case study for tomorrow's class (this is evidently a poor excuse and an ill attempt because rewards and bribes do nothing for my productivity at all, and I probably won't finish this paper until 2AM), and I have to pause after every scene David and Jack have with each other, because I know how this show's been cancelled, know that there won't be a proper resolution, know that David and Jack's relationship will never be explored to its full potential--and this is where you hear me screaming, "NOOOOO MY KING DAVID x JONATHAN MODERN AU GIVE IT TO ME ALL MY HOPES AND DREAMS AND THINGS THAT I SECRETLY GIGGLED OVER DURING CHRISTIAN LIVING CLASS IN HIGH SCHOOL BUT NEVER SPOKE OF BECAUSE, WELL, CATHOLIC HIGH SCHOOL," (if I'd known this show was inspired by King David's story, I would have got to it sooner, I swear, but sometimes I fail like that so) arms flailing helplessly in the air and all.

Why do all the good shows get cancelled, Jennifer f-list? Why do shows like Glee continue to exist, while Sebastian Stan's beautiful angst god face gets pushed off a cliff along with the stellar writing and gorgeous cinematography that surrounds it, never to be heard from again? (No, what? No, I didn't mention Glee just because Sebastian Stan and Dianna Agron dated, what. I really do hate what that show has become.) Tell me, f-list,



I'm wondering how much of a difference it would have made if the Kings' marketing team decided to use the show's connection to the Biblical story to promote it. Shh, I'm a Communications-graduate-cum-Marketing-student, this is very relevant to my interests. I'm thinking a lot. Hands, meet air; welcome frustration my old friend.



Anyway! I marathoned Teen Wolf S1 over the weekend, and I really, really enjoyed it? Not feeling fannish about it just yet, and I still need more Derek/Stiles interaction for me to properly get giddy over them together, but I really, really adore Stiles (I don't think there's any surprise there, because everybody does, right?) and I love Allison, and I don't find Scott annoying like a lot of people seem to? Probably has to do with my liking his face a lot. In a... perfectly non-sexual way, thank fuck, because [livejournal.com profile] l_trickster_l pointed out that this is J-Lo's kid from Maid in Manhattan we're talking about, and--oh hey. He was born in 1991. That's... I've had a huge crush on someone born in 1991, that's not so ba--NO. B|

But yeah. Stiles. Arguably the best character in the show. Definitely joining that hypothetical fan club. Also, while I coo a lot at Scott's face and ridiculousness, I coo so much harder when Stiles is having moments with his daddy. I really love Stiles and his daddy. ;3;


Also, can I just say that I love that even though I'm practically committing fandom polygamy (maybe not polygamy per se, though, but more like polyamory? multifandom whoring?), I don't feel so bad about it because EVERYONE ELSE IS DOING THE SAME? I love you guys. I really, really do. Never let me take too long a break from LJ again, fuck the website restrictions at my workplace. Fuck my even more limited time and even busier schedule these days. Fuck--

I'm so fucking hungry right now. But then I am always hungry. You won't like me when I'm hungry. #HULKSMASH

I should... get back to my paper. ~~~~~/o/

OH LOOK MORE SEBASTIAN STAN ANGST GOD APPRECIATION! AND BUCKY/STEVE AKA WHY-I-HAVEN'T-COMPLETELY-FALLEN-DOWN-THE-TONY/STEVE-RABBIT-HOLE-YET (got this from [livejournal.com profile] copperiisulfate who obviously wants people curling in torturous pain with her, WHYYY WOMAN?! AND WHYYYY, BUCKY?! D'8)



I successfully submitted my draft for [livejournal.com profile] avengers_rbb btw, sooo that's exciting. Ish. Fingers crossed! XD

Still hungry.

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.

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:

Hi, Livejournal friends-list. I am avoiding you and Tumblr like I plague for the next two hours, because I have yet to watch Merlin 4x02 and my Internet has decided to take its sweet little time in getting it to me and--hello, is this for real? Do I actually care about being spoiled for once? Oh, show, the ways you change me!

So, ah, instead I am going bleed my ass off trying to finish as much of this freelance project as I can because, well, money, money, money, Ginny needs more money, really. It is during times like this that I am very glad that I had chosen design as a career, because if illustrating had given me this much excruciating pain, I probably wouldn't be drawing fan art anymore. But I would love to be paid for illustrations anyway. ;;

Also: *hugs all the NEWS fans* I know you guys have heard this countless times already since yesterday, but we know how you feel. We've been there and it hurts like a fucking bitch, and it will make you feel like you just want to leave (like I have and have actually done) or just cry in mourning endlessly, but you mustn't blame anyone and you must never lose the love you have for the boys (I still love KAT-TUN, each and every one of them, endlessly) and give yourself time to be happy for them, for having the courage to do what they think is best for themselves, and remember that these boys do care about each other and while they may be feeling the same pain that you are right now, times a hundred, this is a decision they all share and have understood and they are happy for those who have chosen to do what they had to and they will remain in each others hearts and always wish all the good things for each other, no matter how far apart they are.

That was a long sentence, um, but like [livejournal.com profile] ryogrande said in her own LJ, I wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy (despite the image above) and I hope you guys just stay strong and keep the faith, きっと大丈夫, がんばれ, etc etc etc. ♥

My perfect pizza is a pizza. Because pizza to me is like sex; when its good it's really good, and when it's bad it's... still pretty good. And, yes, I just shamelessly stole that quote from the movie Threesome.

But answering today's writer's block is not the reason I came here. Instead, I am here on a mission for a friend who needs some help with her work, SO! GERMAN-SPEAKING FRIENDS! We need to know what this article is about, particularly this bit:
Verbreitungsgebiet

Der Vertrieb erfolgt im Raum Ostwestfalen mit individuellen Lokalteilen. Zu dem Bielefelder Unternehmen gehören Geschäftsstellen in Bad Oeynhausen, Bielefeld, Brakel, Bünde, Büren, Delbrück, Enger, Espelkamp, Gütersloh, Halle (Westf.), Herford, Höxter, Lübbecke, Rahden, Schlangen, Schloß Holte-Stukenbrock, Steinhagen, Verl, Versmold, Vlotho und Warburg.

Der Herforder Raum wird durch eine Kooperation mit dem Verlag Busse bedient (Herforder Kreisblatt, Vlothoer Zeitung (ehemals Vlothoer Tageblatt)), Paderborn durch das Westfälische Volksblatt. Im Raum Paderborn, Höxter, Warburg, ebenso in Herford, Schloß Holte-Stukenbrock, Steinhagen und Werther sind die jeweiligen Zeitungen gemessen an der Auflage marktführend.

Die verkaufte Auflage des Westfalen-Blatts liegt bei 119.672 Exemplaren.[3] Im zweiten Quartal 2005 erreichte sie noch 127.827 Exemplare. Pro Jahr werden rund 60.000 Zeitungsseiten gedruckt, davon rund ein Drittel Anzeigenseiten.

Wichtigster Mitbewerber des Westfalen-Blatts ist die ebenfalls in Bielefeld ansässige Neue Westfälische.

Check out the peniunicorn fairy princess monstrosity my team mates gave me, and this Arthur x Merlin x Cake fan art (complete with the best love declaration poetry in existence) [livejournal.com profile] lil_lollypop36 sent in my ask box for my birthday. XDb [livejournal.com profile] chaosmaka made me a very speshul picspam on her journal as well, and I just feel so loved, you guys. I feel so, so very loved! Let me hold you tightly against my poor excuse for a bosom before I go back to the black hole that is my work to show you how much you all mean to me. ♥ ♥ ♥

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.

Evil Music Friending Meme happened some couple weeks ago, and I made TWO new friends because I am just that fucking cool and extremely popular. Evidently.

Anyway! Hi [livejournal.com profile] nahara and [livejournal.com profile] skeletonwords! :D I'm Ginny and I've been meaning to give you guys a proper welcome for ages now, but--well. Um. There's a long ass intro post over here if you're up to reading my walls and walls of incessant egoistic rambling, but in a nutshell...

This is my face. )

and

This is my life. )



Luckily enough, I still have time for updating myself with fandom happenings and I've managed to:
  1. keep up with Suits (jshgfshgfksd that cliffhanger! gdi Trevor, I actually do not hate you, don't you fucking DARE), Doctor Who (every night I try to stay up in order to stream the new episode and watch the awesome with the rest of the world, but I am weak and so only get to see it after downloads are up in the morning--I hate differing timezones), and watch my goddess Zooey Deschanel's new show The New Girl (which is a bit lacking in *unf* factor, but I laughed out loud several times and it's My Goddess Zooey acting just like One Of Us, so I guess it's all good).
  2. roll around on tumblr, and plurk about all the things all the time, and comment on friends' LJ posts when I can.
  3. get into Pottermore. Add me up, guys! I'm SnitchMoon127, Slytherin.
  4. be all excited and shit for all the beautiful things happening in Bakanishi's life. Srsly, bb boy. You make me so proud. T3T
  5. meet up with my Dokissaten family last week during the promotional video shoot for the cafe. Shit is actually getting real, bros. It seems not long ago that we were just a teeny school org project. Only two years ago, in fact.
  6. sign up for [livejournal.com profile] merlin_games! Hoping that I get placed in Team Historical AU... that is, I hope [livejournal.com profile] i_know_its_0ver's cunning plan does the trick.
  7. actually work on art I owe people. oAo I don't know how I'm doing it, but I am. Sort of.
  8. successfully participate in [livejournal.com profile] hd_bigbang. Did two pieces for [livejournal.com profile] kerfuffling's Paradox and a pinch-hit piece for [livejournal.com profile] winterstorrm's Under the Surface.
  9. read [livejournal.com profile] paperlegends fic asfhadkdk.
  10. not die from all of this. OHGOD IS IT OCTOBER YET?

Speaking of October, I will have to renew my paid account status, stat. (Aha ahahaha did you see what I did there? Okay shutting up now.) I cannot part with Bradley's faces, not one of them, I can't. D:

Also possibly reviving O(c)T3 Partay with [livejournal.com profile] aesires and [livejournal.com profile] dadomz. Brb, brainstorming for party themes.

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?



Justin Bieber in the house tonight! trolololol.

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

OH MY GOD FANDOM HOW IS IT THAT WHEN I POST ABOUT STAYING AWAY FROM FESTS, YOU SUDDENLY SPROUT OUT SO MANY?

And you know how weak I am in the face of friending memes. Why am I such a whore, Jennifer, why? D8




Also, hi, gods of fucked up timing? When I said I was going on a hiatus from doing any more fan art, I didn't mean you should have my fucking tablet break down only a month after I'd purchased it. Not when I'm in the mood to work for the first time in weeks. Not when the stinking heat is doing wonders for the state of my sanity.

The cockroach that refused to be killed didn't help calm my nerves either. I hate summer.


EDIT. trolololol or I could have just forgotten to update the driver. 8DDD

I still hate summer.

THE NEW DEATHLY HALLOWS TRAILER, THOUGH. SO MANY FEELINGS, MY HEART.


i love them. ;_;

I think I might have to do a tiny step-back from fandom for a while. There's too many RL stuff going on and I really need to get my shit together, focus on improving my craft more and stop being such a laid back little twat about everything, if I want to become a person of better worth. Or something like that.

I'll still be around every day, of course, here and on Twitter and Tumblr (and, heck, even Facebook because my RL fangirl friends are losers who refuse to embrace LJ; also, part of my work exists there), and I'll be commenting on your entries as much as I'm up to. But I don't think I'd be able to read much fic or participate in party posts and fests until... I have enough energy for them again. All existing engagements shall be honoured, though! I swear it on JGL's ass.

his beautiful, glorious, majestic ass. )


Btw, I've finally started watching Doctor Who. Nobody told me it'd be so fucking freaky scary wtaf I love it so much already. D8
