It's been raining for the past week. Like, non-stop. Dog is displeased with this state of affairs. Towns up north are being flooded out. I never thought I would miss the searing light of the sun, but oh god humidity.

So let's have ourselves some meme answers and then go find a blanket.

Meme Answers, Part One: Reasons to Avoid People in Hoods )

More answers to come!

I still haven't finished that plot post, probably on account of I am physically unable to recap the game seriously. No, I have to fill it with jokes. Bad jokes. Terrible jokes. It is a great trial, I assure you, pondering whether it's funnier to mock the main character for being a jerk or the game's plot for being wonderfully insane. So what am I going to do to speed up this arduous task? Procrastinate with memes, of course! Whoo, yeah! This one was stolen from various fabulous people, including [livejournal.com profile] thebaconfat and [livejournal.com profile] rionaleonhart.

1) Make a list of fifteen characters first, and keep it to yourself for the moment. (That way you're not leading the questions asked to fit the characters.) (I revised this list way too many times.)

2) Ask your flist to post questions in the comments.
(Pretty please, flist?)

For example:

'One, Nine and Fifteen move in together. Is this a really bad idea?'
'Under what circumstances might Five and Seven fall in love?'
'Which character on the list would you most want on your side in a zombie invasion?'
'What would Two experience in Silent Hill?'
'What Pokémon would Eight have?'
'Write a drabble in which Three and Eleven FIGHT CRIME.' (...possibly not technically a question.)

3) After your flist has asked enough questions, round them up and answer them using the fifteen characters you selected beforehand, then post them.

So I get a paid account and crow about it and the first thing I do is...post a meme stolen from [livejournal.com profile] twilit_wanderer . YEAH, CONTENT.

Comment here and I'll pick three of your fandoms. You have to repost this with your answers to the questions in your journal.

Beast Wars, FFX, Avatar: The Last Airbender, and a great deal of silliness. )

Many eons ago, I was given a letter and told to upload five or more songs starting with that letter, and let nobody say I do not eventually get the job done! If you give me, like. A few months, maybe.

This letter was given to me by [livejournal.com profile] thebaconfat, and it was the letter O. You can request one in the comments, if you like!

Things That Begin With O: Otter, Ocelot, Orange, Orang-utan )

The Rules:

* Reply to this meme by yelling "Words!".
* I will then give you five words that remind me of you.
* Then post them in your LJ and explain what they mean to you.

The words given to me by [livejournal.com profile] rimon:

1) Prototype (I'LL GET YOU FOR THIS) )

2) Thief )

3) Family )

4) Random Noises )

5) Adorable )

Now, to finish my laundry! Tally-ho!

Okay my rage was soothed today by that I found a cheap PC copy of Thief: Deadly Shadows. It's, weirdly, something where just playing it makes me happy - it's much more immersive playing it when my face is only a few inches from the screen and i have headphones. I've been taking screencaps.

...So you know what? Instead of being enraged, because being enraged makes me tired, I'll take some short fic requests. Fun will sooth my rage and save me a lot of arrests and property damage fines, and I think I need some practice writing in structures. Plus I just haven't been keeping up with this journal or my flist the way I'd like, which is sad because I really do rather adore you all, even if I don't express it enough.

So, give me a fandom, character/s and a theme or idea you'd like to see, and I will write you a fic about whose length I make no guarantees aside from that it will be short - maybe a few hundred words, depending.

Fandoms I'll write for:

Thief
Firefly
Avatar: The Last Airbender
Grim Fandango
The Old Kingdom Trilogy
Assassin's Creed
, possibly
Samurai Jack
Prince of Persia
(both Sands of Time and the new one)

If there's anything else you know I'm familiar that I've left out and you'd like to request, feel free. I am terribly flakey, though, I should warn; I make no promises.

Due to school and Centrelink and insane musicals and me being lazy, I have not posted in a while. It's weird, but I feel great - I've been tired or exhausted a lot, but I feel happier and more productive than I have in ages. I do my work and I clean my room and I wash my clothes and I feel good about it, and I've started reading my books again. I think they missed me. It's nice.

Anyway, I stole this meme from Squeem: comment, get given a letter, and post five or more songs starting with that letter. Squeem gave me W, so here we go! (Test mp3s only, delete in twenty-four hours, buy the albums if you like them. Y'all know the drill, I'm sure.)

Lots of soundtrack music here. )

I know that setting my local Centrelink building on fire wouldn't be very helpful, but it's still a temptation. I'll have to set something else on fire instead.

At any rate, a meme! Stolen from [livejournal.com profile] squeemu! Everybody dance!

The problem with LJ: we all think we are so close, but really, we don't necessarily know as much about each other as we'd like, particularly about how we live our daily lives. So I want you to ask me something you think you should know about me. Something that should be obvious, but you have no idea about. Ask away. Then post this in your LJ and find out what people don't know about you!

Because obviously I should be distracting myself when I'm supposed to be drawing for my drawing class, I will post a meme! I miss memeing. Stolen from [livejournal.com profile] rionaleonhart, whose own post of this is great awesome.

Ask any character you think I might be able to manage a question, and I'll reply in-character as them with an answer (or possibly reply as myself going 'WHAT THE HELL, I CAN'T DO THIS'). Feel free to ask either as yourself or as another character.

If you need a list of possible fandoms, my interests list has most of them! If you can separate them from the crazy, which I should probably do something about (I cannot help it, I like silly interests).

Two things:

Primus: It's only just hit me that I'm going to be moving to the Big City in three months and attending a course that is both everything I've ever wanted out of life and completely mystifying argh help. I am so terrified that they'll take one look at me and know I Am Not The Right Stuff, through their magical animator powers, or something. Shut up, you try being rational about these things when Pixar is the top of your field.

...I can't be jittering with fear for three months, what do I do? What do I do?

Secondus: Assassin's Creed is coming out in a month and I think I may explode from the fangirl. The fact that I recently watched an actual gameplay video in which Altair said a line (a pretty lame one, but a line nonetheless) is not helping.*

Now: Should I or should I not pre-order the special edition, purely for the arhts?


One thing not pertaining to Real Life:

It is, in fact, a meme. I'm bored! And I need writin's.

Request shortfic. Suggest a fandom, a pairing, a character and/or a theme and I will attempt to write words about it. Try to stick to fandoms I am passing familiar with, but I promise I'll take at least a wild swing at anything I don't know about. I can't promise anything about the accuracy, though.


*It was "Come down here! Let us settle this with honour!" Thank you for the mental images of some kind of horrible amalgamation of you and Zuko, Altair. Now go fight people some more so I can drool over your animation, the both of you.

OKAY SO YOU GUYS WITH THE MONEYS I NOW HAVE (BECAUSE I HAVE MONEY NOW YOU KNOW) I WENT OUT AND DID SOME STUFF.

This stuff including the buying of:

Horseradish: Bitter Truths You Can't Avoid ('Lemony Snicket')
Reaper Man (Terry Pratchett)
Guards! Guards! (Terry Pratchett)
Beast Wars Season 2 (NOW I CAN WATCH CODE OF HERO AND TRANSMUTATE WHENEVER I'M FEELING TOO HAPPY)

The ordering of:

A Darkling Plain (Philip Reeve) It should arrive in about two weeks! If any of you yahoos so much as think a spoiler in my general direction, I will find you when you sleep.

And the watching of:

PotC:At World's End (Which is probably the most ridiculous movie I've seen in a while, but who the hell cares, man? Pirates! Also it was awesomely over-the-top and er, why am I finding everybody in it hot now?)

I am kinda missing my lj friends! Fast food wage slaving is crushing my soul and also making me peculiarly productive. My giant head TV series concept did not need a soundtrack, but it has gained one. And an intro. And some episode premises.

BASICALLY:

"Entertaining a notion, like entertaining a baby cousin or entertaining a pack of hyenas, is a dangerous thing to refuse to do. If you refuse to entertain a baby cousin, the baby cousin may get bored and entertain itself by wandering off and falling down a well. If you refuse to entertain a pack of hyenas, they may become restless and entertain themselves by devouring you. But if you refuse to entertain a notion - which is just a fancy way of saying that you refuse to think about a certain idea - you may have to be much braver than someone who is merely facing some bloodthirsty animals, or some parents who are upset to find their little darling at the bottom of a well, because nobody knows what an idea will do when it goes off to entertain itself." - Lemony Snicket, Horseradish

To that end, it is time again for the one-sentence meme.

Give me a character (or a pairing, or a non-romantic relationship, or a theory, or anything you like, really) from a fandom (er, preferably one that I'm familiar with. Crossover if you must), and a theme to go with it, and I'll write you a one sentence fic. Repeat as many times as you like.
