I've been spending most of my energy on work and occasional socializing lately, but that means I've been neglecting this journal. :(

So you know, as good a time as any for a silly meme!

I’m running a test to see who’s reading my posts curious who's still reading LJ/DW regularly. So, if you read this, leave me a one-word comment about your day that starts with the third letter of your LJ USERNAME. Only one word please. Then repost so I can leave a word for you.

As seems to be the COOL THING TO DO today, a meme! Stolen from [ profile] jlh, [ profile] sistermagpie and [profile] kittyjimjams.

Name me a character! I will tell you:

* How I FEEEEEL about this character
* All the people I ship romantically with this character
* My non-romantic OTP for this character (BFFs, mentors, etc)
* My unpopular opinion about this character
* One thing I wish would happen / had happened with this character in canon.

I'm sorry I've been a bit dull! I've posted some things on [ profile] wildgoosery, but I've otherwise just been working on comics and taking care of a variety of Grown Up business that isn't terribly interesting! :\

I am trying desperately to finish my technically-overdue submission for an ATLA mini-bang, which has taken the form of a Katara-centric Avatar/Harry Potter crossover.* I would have finished it earlier, but I forced myself to plow through a lot of comic-drawing and freelance work first. This explains why I'm up at 2AM! This also explains why I am super-behind on my email, in particular some email that I desperately owe to a certain lady in Yorkshire!

However, this also means I'm awake to witness the appearance of an Avatar Fanfic Author Love Meme on my flist!

Guys. Love Memes are the best.


I'm a little tired to do much with it tonight, myself. But I'll have to think of SOME KIND OF NONSENSE to post on it tomorrow!

the that's my favorite! meme

I always feel silly doing these, but right now I could actually use the encouragement pretty badly. I'm struggling to finish my fic for [ profile] avatarbigbang over the next few days, and after that I'm going to have to crank through what's left of the epilogue for my giant-ass Ba Sing Se AU, which I've been wanting to finish for MONTHS AND MONTHS but had no time to work on at all until about two weeks ago.

But I can't spend too much time on either of them because I really need to get back to Chronin, so...hahah, yes, fic-writing positive energy to help me push through as quickly as possible would be super great, I'll admit ^_^;;;

In other news: I am going to start working on Chronin again! HOLY SHIT! :O

In other other news: my BFF/roomie [ profile] hoshizora passed his skills test today and is OFFICIALLY a member of the New York Shock Exchange roller derby team. KILLBERT BLYTHE* LIVES! \o/

*I am also super-flattered that he decided to use the name I came up with. IT'LL BE ON HIS JERSEY AND EVERYTHING! <3 <3 <3 <3

A book meme, from [ profile] jlh!

1. Grab the nearest book.
2. Open the book to page 123.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the next 4-7 sentences on your LJ along with these instructions.
5. Don't you dare dig for that "cool" or "intellectual" book in your closet! I know you were thinking about it! Just pick up whatever is closest (unless it's too troublesome to reach and is really heavy. Then go back to step 1).
6. Tag five people.

I'm at my mom's place this weekend, and I don't actually have any books in the room I'm sitting in. BUT! I do have my ipod touch sitting right here, so I flipped to page 123 of the ebook I just finished reading in Eucalyptus: Anne of the Island.

"...By the way, is Ludovic Speed still going to see her?" [asked Anne.]

"They say so," said Marilla, "and he's likely to continue it. Folks have given up expecting that that courtship will arrive anywhere."

"I'd hurry up a bit, if I was Theodora, that's what," said Mrs. Lynde. And there is not the slightest doubt but that she would.

Incidentally, what book comes next in the chronology of Anne Shirley? I'll admit I'm a little mixed up as to where to go from here.

I will tag [ profile] emsariel, [ profile] hoshizora, [ profile] rawles, [ profile] meredyd and [ profile] kittyjimjams for this particular meme! (Along with anyone else who feels inclined, of course <3 )

Icon meme!

Taken from a great many people!

1. How do you feel right now?

The rest behind here! )

In other news, it's really nice out but I'm trying to make myself work on freelance instead of going roller skating. Later tonight, I will start hand-sewing a 19th century-style petticoat. I will also try not to freak out about how A Certain Zuko Book Thing is coming out in like a month (!!!!) which means HUMAN BEINGS (!!!!!!!) will READ IT (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

I was going to skip doing this -- I've been so absentee lately that I hardly feel like I'm deserving of any internet cookies right now -- but it's 4AM and I have an alarming amount of work to do in the next twelve hours or so and I am not made of stone.

So here is my comment on that love meme thing that is going around! If you feel inclined to say a nice thing, I would certainly be grateful, and could use the positivity something fierce. <3

This latest round of revisions has been like PULLING TEETH. I spent like two hours tonight going over the same 200 words of text. I NEVER WANT TO WRITE INTROSPECTIVE CAPTIONS AGAIN IS WHAT I'M SAYING.

However, this has oddly left me in the mood for a MEME. Stolen from the lady [ profile] rawles!

1. Pick one of my icons and post it in a comment.

2. I will write you at least one sentence of something vaguely resembling fiction based on said icon.

3. If the icon in question does not contain fictional characters, I reserve the right to Make Some Shit Up.

PS: I am going to finish writing up my answers for the 5 things meme, they just got a bit out of HAND is all.
ali_wildgoose: (Default)
So [ profile] rawles and [ profile] sainfoin_fields both did this meme, and it sounded like a pretty good time!

• Post ten of any pictures currently on your hard drive that you think are self-expressive.
• NO CAPTIONS!!! It must be like we're speaking with images and we have to interpret your visual language just like we have to interpret your words.
• They must ALREADY be on your hard drive - no googling or flickr! They have to have been saved to your folders sometime in the past. They must be something you've saved there because it resonated with you for some reason.
• You do NOT have to answer any questions about any of your pictures if you don't want to. You can make them as mysterious as you like. Or you can explain them away as much as you like.

But due to the COMPLETELY INSANE volume of images on my harddrive, I had to impose a few extra rules upon myself: no photos of me, no artwork drawn by myself or my friends, nothing on the external harddrive, no livejournal icons, and only ONE screenshot from Avatar. Oh -- and I also couldn't spend THE ENTIRE EVENING digging through folders.

There was some drama tonight, regarding the outcome of a poll some of us thought was about Awesome Ladies and ended up being about Adam Lambert. And you know....I love Adam Lambert! But we could all use some chatter about how ladies are awesome, in light of this and various other recent nonsense. We really, really could. And so, via [ profile] jlh

Nice Girls Finish First

Go! Comment! SHARE YOUR LADIES WITH US. <3 Or pimp, like so:

I have a meeting to get ready for so I can't do much myself ATM, BUT!!!

Fandom Superlatives!

I'm counting on you guys.

So [ profile] a_white_rain posted her top ten Disney songs, and I found that I couldn't actually resist that level of temptation.

I have listened to pretty much all of these soundtracks on repeat for days at a time, particularly when I was in my early teens and at the height of my love affair with Disney Musicals. As such, it was actually really hard for me to not just link to the soundrack versions as opposed to the clips from the films, because OH MAN there's all this TALKING and SOUND EFFECTS and weird editing MESSING UP THESE SONGS OF MY HEART.

I'll try to keep the commentary to a minimum because I actually do have a lot to do today AND that's a long, dark path to start down. So you know....Here are my top ten! )
ali_wildgoose: (Default)
There are approximately ten kabillion other things I should be doing right now, not the least of which is replying to comments on my previous entry, but I'm trying to start a new scene (which I hate doing) and I'm drinking coke and tequila (which I love doing but is not helping anything) so you know....TIME FOR A SHIP MEME FROM [ profile] sainfoin_fields I GUESS?!

Note that I had to stop following everything with "AND I AM SO ASHAMED" because it was getting repetative. So just assume that this entire meme is a black hole of dignity and go from there.

::My top ten of all time in something resembling chronological order::

Goliath/Elisa (Gargoyles)
The Phantom/Christine (Phantom of the Opera, I was one of those teenagers I'm sorry)
Odo/Kira (Deep Space Nine)
Ellie/SPACE (Contact)
Remus/Sirius (Harry Potter, AND CANON AS FAR AS I'M CONCERNED)
Saki/Madarame (Genshiken)
Mai/Zuko (Avatar: The Last Airbender)
Jet/Zuko (...*sighs* This started out on the first list and then I had a SHAME ATTACK and had to move it to the second and then I felt I was being dishonest so I MOVED IT BACK AGAIN.)
Emma/William (EMMA, as in the manga, though that reminds me to add Darcy/Elizabeth...)
Fakir/Ahiru (Princess Tutu)
Ohno/Chigake (Antique Bakery!!!!!!!!!)
Akira/Hikaru (Hikaru no Go)
Barney/Robin (How I Met Your Mother)

Shut up there were totally ten you just counted wrong.

The wholly unsurprising confession continues behind the cut )

My Thread Here!

I DO ENJOY ARTWORK! Though I am kind of afraid of other artists. Hmm.

(gacked from [ profile] gallo_de_pelea and [ profile] tlc010)

Another meme, apologies. But perhaps it'll be interesting, at least!

1. Reply to this post, and I will pick five of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon glee.

Eleven icons and explanations behind the cut! )

So there you have it! Handy table code, created by [ profile] bzzinglikeneon, is as such:

ali_wildgoose: (Default)
From [ profile] jlh:

—Give me a marry/shag/cliff trio
—I'll post pics and my answer
—I'll give you a marry/shag/cliff trio
—Then you can do the same!

Note that if I'm unfamiliar with the options, my reasoning will be shallow and arbitrary, as oppose to JUST arbitrary. ;3

(For the uninitiated: Marry/Shag/Cliff is a game in which you name three people, and then I have to decide which I'd marry, which I'd shag, and which I'd throw off a cliff.)

So my friend [ profile] tl__dr did a meme a few days ago wherein she gave various people five topics they should ramble on about in their own journals! Mine were a pleasing combo of serious and WHOLLY-UN-SERIOUS topics, and now that it's Saturday and I'm sitting in bed with some coffee, unwilling to rejoin the rest of the world just yet, I figured I'd sit down and blather on for a bit.

1. Jet/Zuko )

2. Anti-racism )

3. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles )

4. Newsies )

5. Wild geese! )

Wow that was a lot of text.

BLAME [ profile] tl__dr. IT IS WHOLLY HER FAULT.

I resented being asked to pick my FAVORITE SHIP in the icon meme I did a few days ago, and in retaliation against this injustice I have decided to create a meme of my own. A meme in which all ships are equal (by which I mean equally embarrassing and ridiculous, of course.)

THE MEME: Pick your favorite icon for each of your ships (if you only have one, that's fine too!) then fess up as to what you're doing on that boat in the first place.

Shipping confession via iconography behind the cut! )

JOIN ME IN MEMING! Just paste this code in as many time as you have ships you want to talk about and fill in the details!

The time has come for New Years Roundups, and I'm the sort of person who's far more interested in talking about my work than about myself. AND SO! I'm doing the same fanfic meme I did last year, because it was fun, and it's a weight off my shoulders to confess my nerdy activities. And oh...OH were there some activities!

Conveniently, this also doubles as a "What I Wrote For Yuletide" reveal post! (Hint: they are down at the bottom of the list)

I don't often talk about my fic here, because that's what [ profile] wildgoosery is for after all, but for anyone who's curious....

Here is the nonsense I got up to in 2008. )
ali_wildgoose: (Default)
Gacked from MANY MANY people:

The first five people to comment in this post get to request a sketch of a subject/character of their choosing from me. In return, they have to post this in their journal.

(It'd be NICE if other folks did this, but you know, we're all pretty busy this time of year. <3)

Also, for those who care, the first issue of Nick Magazine featuring new Avatar comics is on the newstands RIGHT NOW! The cover looks like this...

...and includes the comic "Game Time," written by Katie Matilla and drawn by Justin Ridge! (And riffed on by Dave Roman here - oh boys, never change!)

ETA: You guys and your "I CALL SHOTGUN!" commenting is charming and hilarious beyond belief <3

ETA2: I'm doing these a little out of order, since I was out of the house tonight and had to stick to what I didn't need reference for, but so far I've finished:

Jet and Zuko from my Crazy Ba Sing Se AU for [ profile] mrmoonpants

Aang and Katara, grown up and in the Fire Nation (with MEAT) for [ profile] ifotismeni

Tiny Katara and Sokka WRASSLIN for [ profile] pikabot

Maka's Dad the Death Scythe from Soul Eater, for [ profile] ilikebigtoes

Elisa Maza cuffs Fox for [ profile] patrickat

Bertrand Goldenhour for [ profile] foxysquid
