"In ways that maybe no one intended, those superheroes were a lot like me. At work, they're meek, and under appreciated. They're the guys that never get laid. And when they're around other people, they can never let anyone get too close, for fear that their true identities will be discovered. Yet, with all the villains, and the monsters and the evil forces that are trying to destroy them, somehow they survive. Even the one thing that can kill Superman, the one thing to which he has no immunity, Kryptonite, ultimately you know that he'll survive that, and he'll go on to save the world. I believe the same about us. That's what the comics have shown me. That despite everything, we'll survive. And we'll win."

Okay, so, apparently all I needed to kick my writer's block in the ass were a bunch of little blue people. Go figure. =P

Did this because I finally saw the movie and absolutely loved it (even if I can't remember ever even liking the series, lol), and because I clearly had nothing better to do at 1:15 in the morning. :D

There is a place. A place that knows no sadness, where even feeling blue is a happy thing. A place inhabited by little, blue beings three apples high. It lies deep within an enchanted forest, hidden away beyond a medieval village. Most people believe this place is made up, only to be found in books or children's imagination. Well, we beg to differ. )

I found this meme through [livejournal.com profile] poisonivory's journal, and, omg, it looks so fun. :D

People will reply to your comment anonymously, pretending to be a fictional character who expresses their love for you. It would be preferable if the comment was "signed" by the fictional character, to avoid any confusion.

1) Give me a pairing.
2) Give me an AU setting.
3) I will write you a three-sentence fic.

Icon Meme

Sep. 6th, 2011 08:24 pm
shini02: (Echo)
- Reply to this post, and I will pick six of your icons.
- Make a post (including this info) and talk about the icons I chose.
- Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
- This will create a never ending cycle of icon glee.


[livejournal.com profile] xcircus_freakx chose these:




1. Echo: I found the picture I used for this one on deviantART way back when. I fell in love with it and had to have it as an icon. It's actually one of my oldest, now that I think about it. :D

2. Merman and woman: Again, another picture I found on deviantART. I love merfolk, and mermen in particular, and this picture was just so cute, so I turned it into an icon. Another one of my oldest, actually. ^^

3. Mysterion/Kenny: Ever since it was revealed in South Park that Mysterion is Kenny and Kenny's deaths are more than just a running gag, that he's cursed and actually comes back from the dead, I've been obsessed. Not only with SP and/or Kenny, but with his curse and his superhero persona. Naturally, I needed an icon. Fanart found on deviantART.

4. Envy x Ed: Oh, gosh. I don't know what to say about this one. I love the Envy x Ed pairing, and this picture just stood out to me when I found it... wherever I found it. I don't remember. But I loved it and had to have it as an icon. So, I made it into one, and it's stayed around since. And I don't think it's going anywhere any time soon.

5. Brooklyn: Another fanart pic I found on deviantART. I love Brooklyn, and this picture was just gorgeous. Again, it was impulse and obsession that led me to make an icon out of it. <3

6. Dragon and boy: I've had this icon for, like, ages. I really don't know what to say about it, other than I like dragons, and I thought this picture was pretty. So, yeah, made it into an icon. Also found on deviantART.

(Technically, I saw this a few days ago on [livejournal.com profile] poisonivory's journal, but I only wound up stealing it today, after I saw it on [livejournal.com profile] thelostmaximoff's journal.)

Give me a pairing and I will tell you:

1. What they most commonly do during sex
2. Who has prettier hair
3. What they argue about most often
4. Who'd cope best if the other one died
5. The happiest plausible happily-ever-after I can think of for them.

I looked at him, and I saw myself.


I think a lot of people think I'm kidding around when I say I see a lot of myself in Hiccup, but... really, guys, I'm not. I swear, he's like my masculine, fictional double. Or twin. Or something. Our looks are similar, our mannerisms are the same, our social skills are worth naught, we both have a bum leg, and to make things just a little creepier still: I have Nordic blood in me somewhere far, far down along the line.

I could go into more detail, 'cause I've thought long and hard about how similar we are, but I'll leave it at that for now, 'cause it's too hot to think too much right now.
shini02: (Brooklyn - In Flight)
Go look at your blog journal. Find the last Fandom-related thing you posted. The characters in that post are now your team-mates in the Zombie Apocalypse. How fucked are you?

Well, considering my last fannish entry was a Gargoyles MV, specifically one about Demona and Brooklyn (and teeny, tiny bit of Goliath and even Maggie), I'd say: Not that fucked.

I spent literally a whole day rewatching Gundam Wing a few years ago. Started early, finished that night. And, yes, that included Endless Waltz.

Oh, my rabid fangirl days. How I miss thee.
shini02: (Paul)
It had to happen sooner or later, right?

I would have done this sooner, but every time I tried, the inspiration would fall flat. I think it had something to do with the fact that I was trying to use the general fandom, when my mind was stuck on Paul/Tara. So, I'd try to churn something out for one of the other characters or potential pairings, and nothing would happen, 'cause I was forcing something I didn't want to do. ^^;

I don't know who I'd want to play the main characters, or anybody else for that matter, but I've been saying for years that American Star by Jackie Collins would make an awesome movie. It's pretty much the only romance novel I own, and it's one of my favorite books and stories of all time, and I'd honestly kill to see it up on the big screen some day.

I'm also going to go ahead and say The Howling by Gary Brandner. Yes, I'm aware it's already been made into a movie, but everything was just so... wrong. The plot, the werewolves - everything was just so very, very wrong. It's an awesome story and it deserves a second chance. 'Cause that's what good werewolf fiction is made of. Also, again, I dunno who I'd want to play who; I wouldn't care, so long as it was good, and didn't turn out weirdly Twilight-esque.

Our cat, Phobos, got out once. (I actually am shocked I didn't post about it when it happened.) He'd been out for one night and one day, because someone didn't close the door when they went out on to the balcony, and didn't see him when he snuck out. Tiff came home from work early that day, and we spent most of it outside with a bowl of food and a bag of treats looking for him. We wound up putting the food bowl on the balcony, figuring he'd come back 'cause he'd never been outside before, anyway. Sure enough, that night, around eleven, he came back. He was full of burrs, so that meant he hadn't gone far, probably just hid in our yard or the neighbor's.

It was lucky he came back when he did, and that we managed to get him back inside the house, because that night and all throughout the next day we had freezing rain. I remember looking out the window the next morning, and crying in nothing short of relief, because I knew if he'd stayed out there, he likely would have died.

Post a single sentence or more from each WIP you have, or from as many WIPs as you want. Provide no context/explanations.


(Keep in mind, I doubt any of these will ever be worked on or finished. They're seriously just taking up space on my hard-drive at the moment, and have been for years, and I really have no idea why I haven't deleted them.)


1. “It's over,” he says, and it's soft and full of regret because he does love this girl with everything he is, but this relationship has lost its magic. Pun, perhaps, intended.

2. Charley will never be Harley and he can't tell if that's a good thing or not anymore. Moving on is proving to be difficult, especially when her memory is plastered onto the side of his face and he's not quite as ready as he thought he was to let go.

3. She knows he's different the moment he walks into the chocolate shop, and it has nothing to do with the strange aroma that comes wafting in with him. It's his grace, the way he carries himself, uneasily and yet practiced, as though he's an actor uncomfortable in his own skin. It's the promise of something more, something better, that urges her toward him.

4. His dark doorway opens and he vanishes through it, leaving behind a trail of shadows and the smell of smoke and ash, leaving her wide-eyed and fearful and trembling because she remembers that smell. She remembers fire – the heat of the flames behind her, chasing her, driving her onward, burning away her footprints.

5. Go with the flow, as Rapses would often say, that was what he was going to do. And it really would be that easy, so long as his comrades remained asleep and the menagerie of villains plaguing their existence in this place and time decided, for just this one night, to behave.

But despite the apparent effortlessness presented, Rath still hesitated before leaving the sphinx.

6. He doesn't want to feel this way. It's dangerous, misguiding; perhaps nothing more than another delusion brought on by his neurosis. The walls Merbian society built around him his entire life come down around her, and she takes what should be hard as stone on the inside and turns it soft, making him vulnerable, open to attacks aimed directly at his naturally anxious heart.

7. It has been years since her run through the Underground, since she allowed herself to believe in anything but the ordinary. She had allowed herself that one last night of magic, then swore it all away. It had been a hard decision and it had hurt in the end, but it was the only way to keep him away from her.

It's ironic, she thinks, that in the end she wound up walling up her heart the same way he had. Once, she had allowed herself to think, maybe, things could have been different, they could have saved each other from their lonely, lonely lives.

When [livejournal.com profile] thelostmaximoff came over a few years back (I was, I think, eighteen, and still living with my grandparents and aunt), there was one night we had gone into my room to talk. It was fairly late and everyone else was already asleep, and we didn't want to bother anyone by chatting up a storm in the living room, so we moved it to my room, behind a closed door. We were there for hardly five minutes before my aunt came a-knocking, and suggested very loudly that I keep my bedroom door open, so my grandparents wouldn't think we were fucking.

>_<;;

I wouldn't have minded, if he hadn't been able to hear that. But he did. Thankfully, we were able to laugh about it a few seconds later, even if I was royally pissed and horribly embarrassed. I still get mad thinking about it, but I'm also still able to laugh at it, so, I guess that's okay. =P

I'm feeling better and more positive today about this whole doctor thing, so, I decided to do this meme again, and this time just for fun – meaning I didn't do it for character study or anything of that sort, and even managed to keep the drabbles themselves angst-free. :)

I scribble, mostly. If I feel particularly inclined to make something more than squiggly lines on paper, I have a habit of drawing circles, pentagrams, stars, cubes and hearts, as well as writing out random words and names that come to mind.

Only once did a doodle/scribble of mine ever prove useful.
shini02: (Hannibal - Lips)
So, it's not a full blown fic, but it's good enough for now, until I get a solid idea – which I probably won't get until either I watch all of the Hannibal movies in sequence, or get my hands on the books. Oh well.
