Am I the only one who rates how bad the traffic is in my neighborhood by what day of the week I think it would be in that old "Paperboy" video game?


Meme time! (Stolen from [livejournal.com profile] leeshajoy and a few others.)

Comment and I will comment back with a picture of the fictional character that most reminds me of you. Then post the same in your journal.

I might be a little slow in replying, as I'm not sure how much time I have today. ^^; But have at!
spinelstar: (tantrum)
60-second-rant, GO!

ARRRGGHH work has been crazy. For no reason at all. I had five classes yesterday, and four each day two days before that, and today I have three. And it came at the worst time because my back is hurting (don't know how I hurt it) and being on my feet all day isn't helping. And I haven't been able to RP at ALL because I come home exhausted and I have no time during the day and it's made me REALLY upset and cranky and I wish I could play with all of you guys because I really miss it. :(

*deep breath*

♥ Fun little icon meme I'm stealing from [livejournal.com profile] ceitfianna:

Comment here and I'll pick 5 of your icons for you to write about.

These are the five she picked for me…

I made this icon sort of on a whim for use in Mixed Muses, because I thought the flame was pretty. I'm still meaning to post the original picture as a Daily Drawing, but here's the wallpaper my sister made from it that I subsequently used to make this icon. It was originally based on a fanfic she was writing, but then I realized it worked better with some of my original characters—Damian and Alexander. I only had to change one of my character designs accordingly, which I'd been meaning to do anyway because Damian seriously looked too much like Ciel Phantomhive, even though I created him before Kuroshitsuji was published. More on all that can be found in my deviantART gallery.

This is from a movie version of one of my favorite Japanese short stories ever, by an author named Tanizaki Jun'ichirou. The story was titled "Shisei" (Tattoo) and I first read it in the original Japanese for class. It's about a sadomasochistic artist who tattooed a giant jorougumo (a type of spider) onto a woman's back, which somehow transformed her into the cruel kind of woman he fantasized about. Yeah, I don't know either, but it was by far the most interesting story we read that semester—Tanizaki was a weird guy.

This is Haruka Tenou (Sailor Uranus) playing the piano, from the manga version of Sailor Moon. I've always adored this picture ever since I first saw it in junior high, and copied it more than once while teaching myself how to draw. The text is lyrics from Michael W. Smith's "Do You Dream of Me?" which has a lot of pretty piano, and remains one of my favorite songs of all time (I can actually play part of it!). And I was really into Sailor Moon when I first heard it, so I will always imagine Haruka singing it to Michiru (Sailor Neptune) whenever I listen to it.

This is from my FAVORITE MOVIE OF ALL TIME, Amadeus. The priest who talks to Salieri as he's telling his story is so amazingly well-cast, I laugh nearly every time he's on screen, just because it's so obvious on his face how traumatized he is by what he's hearing. The quote is stolen from Will & Grace, from (who else?) Karen Walker. This icon is incredibly useful when directed at myself. XD

I drew this one myself! Back from when I dyed my hair black and cut it in a semi-bob. I like picturing myself as a little black sleepy kitty, not sure why. I did one of these for each of my roommates last year—including TL!—and we put them on our doors. I'm sleeping on top of my Japanese homework; the kanji reads "neko," which of course means "cat."

WIP Meme

I like this meme, because I never post fanfiction on here. Mostly because I hardly ever finish anything.

Had trouble keeping things to just a line or two, haha.

Post a line (or two) from as many of your WIPs as you want, with no explanation attached.

+++ "I don’t feel like being your midnight snack, only to wake up and then be breakfast in bed—"

+++ I had time. I intended to take it. The man was a priest; he certainly wouldn’t be going anywhere. In the meantime, I would stalk him, remaining in close concealment so I could scour his thoughts for some hint as to how I might best torture him. He had sent my master to eternal torment; at the very least, I wanted to give this supposed man of God some persecution in this life before I ended it.

So perhaps it would not be tonight. It might not even be in time for my next feeding.

But sooner or later, Carlisle Cullen was going to die.

+++ Julian seems thoughtful about that for a moment, and slips his hands around to Frederick's back, just above the skirts of his coat. "I'd like to think that my arms are not a cage," he says quietly.

…"It's not your arms, my friend—it's your eyes."

+++ Jackets are discarded on a chair. Cravats slide off with the distinct swishing sound of silk against cotton. Gloves are removed between teeth, and buttons are unfastened by the other person's fingers.

It follows, of course, that they should end up on the bed.

+++ I think the last thing I asked him was why he’d chosen that painting in particular. He started making references to the concept of “home,” and how we humans seem to feel a strong connection to the place where we grew up. He said that since he didn’t really have any significant memories of Omicron Theta, he might consider space his “home”—the first place he’d lived, the place where he’d really started to learn what life was all about…

I dreamt of space that night, of standing next to my friend on the observation deck of some nameless starship, looking out at stars and galaxies and faraway planets…

…And feeling like I was home.

+++ There was a pause. She was waiting. I wondered how I got lucky enough to have [Guinan's] full attention tonight.

"Boy, do I have a unique problem for you," I said, taking a big gulp of my drink. But I had to think about what I was going to say, and I realized, "No. I guess it's actually not that weird.

"What do you do when your best friend tells you she's in love with you?"

I am slightly behind on tags now. A three-hour-nap almost immediately after work may have occurred.

Meanwhile, I'm sorely tempted to make Julian a journal and throw him into MM with Frederick. O_o /random


Comment and I'll tell you something I like about you!

(Stolen from [livejournal.com profile] bookelfe)

Have at, my lovelies!
spinelstar: (me!)
Apparently my alarm clock is broken or something. Let's hear it for unintentional, 3-hour naps! :/ (not)

I can't really think of a drawing I feel like talking about much, so today's is short:

Daily Drawing #5 )

And here's my meme:

Ask any of my pups (or me) a question, and I'll ask one of yours one! It can be about anything-- ask for advice, an opinion on another character, or even call them out on something you've seen them do. Send a riddle, or just pose a random question like, "How's the weather?" Anything goes!

(Make sure to send a link to any sort of pup list you have handy, so I don't forget anyone! Mine's in my profile.)

I don't know if this meme is interesting, but feel free to steal. :3
spinelstar: (harpsichord)
Is it weird if I just made sure that my title had an even number of "me's"?

Stolen from [livejournal.com profile] ashen_key:

Pick a character I write, and I will give you the top five ideas/concepts/other I keep in mind while writing that character that I believe are essential to depicting them accurately. This includes both original characters and characters about whom I write fanfic.
spinelstar: (spot love)
I'll just post this here in case anyone wants it. ;)

Stolen from [livejournal.com profile] wanderlustlover.

Pretend for a minute that the only contact you have ever had with me is through my rp characters or fic. We've never exchanged LJ comments or emails, never hung out in chat or on IM, never talked on the phone or met each other at a convention, none of that stuff. The only thing you know about me is the kind of threads/fic I write.

Based on the way I write my characters, and the way they speak, think, and behave, what does that say to you about what kind of person I am, my attitudes and opinions about real-life issues?

Meme time!

Don't worry guys; drawings are still happening. I was sketching just last night. ;)

There's a infectious meme going around, and I seem to have caught it.

Ask me about any character I RP or write, and I will pick one of the following and tell you:

(a) Three facts about them from my personal fanon.
(b) Two reasons they're amazing.
(c) Five things that I'd like to see happen to them.
(d) Three people that I might ship that character with and why.
(e) If I don't know the character or the fandom, I will make something up.
Original stuff and AUs always okay!

Top Fives!

spinelstar: (mozart wheeeee)
Stolen from [livejournal.com profile] wanderlustlover, [livejournal.com profile] viridian, and [livejournal.com profile] ceitfianna:

Ask me my Top Five Whatevers. Fannish or literary or otherwise. Any top fives. Doesn't matter what, really! Fandoms, ice cream flavors, cartoon moments, women in my fandoms, OTPs, ideal holiday destinations, goals for the future, celebrity crushes, books I wish would be made into movies, love songs. And I will answer them all in a new post (or in comments). Possibly with pictures.

In the meantime...
