Hey guys. This journal's (semi) F-LOCKED. I've been working on making most of my journals public, but a whole bunch of my drawings, stories, etc. are still friend locked because of their incomplete-ness. If you're curious about my journal, the Friends option is for you.
F IS FOR FRIENDS WHO DO STUFF TOGETHERR.
U IS FOR YOU AND ME.
N IS FOR ANYWHERE AND ANYTIME AT ALL
HERE IN THIS AWESOME LIVEJOURNAL.
Want to be friends? Comment BELOWW. Thank you!

So recently, Dior came back (from uni? from the dead? NOBODY KNOWS), and it prompted me to reunite with some people that I've honestly just been completely out of touch with in the last few months. I quite frankly ditched a lot of people on FF.net, some of whom I still owed beta chapters to at the time. My sincerest apologies--truly, it was unprofessional and rude of me to leave you hanging. In light of this, I got into contact with most of the writers I beta'd for before hand and attempted to reconnect with everyone. But I still haven't re-connected with everyone on LJ. So tell me--how is everyone? I miss you all. Talk to me! I know I don't go on MSN as often as I'd like anymore, due to SAI being, well, laggy as hell once I start working on ~4000px canvases, but I'm still on Skype! Give me all your Skype SNs, and let's catch up, yeah?
It's been a while.
I was on an art hiatus for about a year and a half. School, stress, a personal life, writing...Aside from everything else that took a huge chunk of time out of my life, art just wasn't fun for me anymore. I felt depressed about it, and I found it to be almost a chore. However, a couple months back, I stepped back into my artist circle, and started illustrating for the YT Utaite fandom amongst other things. I'm now drawing regularly again, which feels strange to be honest. As such, I haven't been active in terms of writing, haha...
Amongst other news, I also have a tumblr now! I keep it as a half-and-half, part reblogging and part sketchblog. From now on, I'll be using this LJ as my personal and writing blog (since it has a lovely friends-only option), while keeping my tumblr as a more public blog that has all my doodles and such. If you're interested in my artistic ventures, check it out here!
But honestly, I haven't had much muse regarding writing until recently, when I got into the Sherlock (BBC) fandom. IT. IS. AMAZING. I-I can't even explain the muse that I'm getting from it. The relationship between Sherlock and Watson is just. ALL THE CHARACTERS. For my angst-filtered lenses, this series is just. Waiting for me to write. It hasn't been since KHR that I've felt this inspired, though writing about a TV show vs an anime will be challenging to adjust to. I do have a few plotbunnies and blurbs waiting to be written though, so I hope my friends won't mind being Sherlocked. :,)
In the past week:
1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 10
, 11, 12, 13, 14
Don't mind me, I'm just being a mopey self-pitying bitch right now.
I hate animation
I hate the animation teacher
I hate the stupid requirements that she enforces on the class
I hate the time constraints
I hate her rubric that cuts away any creative license I have
Also I love you Justin Pike please accept me into your college.
Oh my god. This is SO GOOD.
Like, Iunno, I'm a total SHINee fan, but seriously. This MV is so frikking. Amazing.
The themes, the symbols, the music, the noir.
It's sexy and angsty and really hypnotizing.
Korea's Beyonces? Not even! Beyonce's got nothin' on this.
Currently, my default icon is of an Aqua grunt, courtesy of gardevoirs
's amazing graphics talent. *_* Honestly, I had trouble picking between that one and the one I'm using for this post, and I ended up going with the Aqua Grunt just because the blue matched my layout more...but to be honest, both of them are kind of there but not really.
In terms of characters, I've always viewed Touko (White, the character in this post's icon), as my default character for everything. Her personality is portrayed as a headstrong fangirl type, which suits me hehe. I think she's my favorite female character. My favorite pokemon is probably Gengar. It is so cute. I don't know, when I see it and its chubby cheeks, I'm just really happy. Though I also adore Glaceon and Chandelure, I think in terms of aesthetics alone, Gengar is my number one.
So like I was saying, I was picking between these two because I haven't found my ideal one yet. I want one with a blue accent so it'll fit my theme and my LJ in general, preferably of Touko or Gengar, and a nice art style. The one I'm using right now is nice, but I just don't really like the art style? Iunno. B| easterly
has some realllyyy cute ones of Gengar, but they're not color schemed and she doesn't have more than 1-2 ones of Touko....
I'M REALLY OCD ABOUT THINGS LIKE THIS OKAY.
I swear once I draw some Touko and Pokemon fanart, I'll STILL end up begging some graphiker on LJ to turn it into an icon/banner for me because I seriously suck at graphics .___.;;
Speaking of banners, I need a new Friends Only banner. My chibi-with-eyes-that-can-stare-into-your-s
oul is not fitting my theme...//bricked.
Yup, I changed my rainbow-barf layout into something more minimalist. How is it? Personally, I'm in loveee with it (thank you daemon
for making the awesome layout! It's from the comm spire
, so check it out! :>) I changed the pink tones to blue to suit my LJ more, hehe. It's a lot cleaner now and makes my eyes hurt less...though, I will admit, I kind of miss the fun-ness of my old layout.
- I bombed my SAT today. :,) Thinking about cancelling my score before it comes out so it doesn't stain my record. Darn. Drowning my sorrows in some boba milk tea kekeke.
- I'm really into fashion these days, and I've been looking at lookbook.nu and other fashion blogging sites for hourss, haha. Check out this blog! I really love her sense in style...going to try out some of her outfits someday, hehe. Once I go to college, I swear I'm going to have funds for just clothing. Right now, I'm too tight on cash and time to go out and shop, and I've basically been wearing black t-shirts and jeans every day as a leftover reminder from Junior Year...the year of anti-everything-except-studying haha! Now that things are winding down (well, going to be winding down after I'm done with college apps >_<), I'm going to spend more time on myself.
- Homecoming is in a weekk. Got my dress already, pictures here:
