*brushes dust off LJ*


In the time since I last posted, I have dropped out of university, started my fourth draft of my novel, gotten a facial piercing, changed hair style and colour approximately six times, gotten a new job, completed a traineeship, changed my tumblr url twice, updated none of my fics, had friends go from loving each other to attempting to rip each others' throats out, had friends start dating and break up, gotten involved in two ill-advised relationships, moved out, started making preparations to move state, and discovered that I am in fact a transman.


I'm bad at things. Apparently I'm even worse at consistent internetting, outside of tumblr at any rate.

Oh gods, what am I to do?

My Thoughts on the Little Mermaid

(C&Ped from Tumblr so I can keep track of it because it's the most articulate I've been about why I dislike Disney's Little Mermaid)

I want to love this, I really do...Collapse )

So Much Chocolate ~

Seriously, I just had this freaking huge brownie that almost killed me -- it took like half an hour to eat, not even kidding.

I am such a teenager it's not even funnyCollapse )


So, NaNo starts in about an hour, and quite frankly I'm PUMPED! I am READY for this :D Amazingly enough it'll be my first time writing traditional dragons XD


Well, I've finally come across and (grudgingly) taken to that obscure habit of creating these odd things called 'plot outlines'. Weird, I know, but I'm a bit of a weird bird. More happily Supernatural season six has started airing, but I've still only caught two episodes. And new story ideas keep popping up all over the place.

I'm well on my way to rehashing my first fanfiction into something a lot more cohesive, I have three new original pieces plus my NaNo plan in the works, I've started a pair of My Little Pony fanfics of all things and I finally know where I'm going with my current fic focus (yay!). So in terms of writing, everything's shiny.

Everything else is plodding along at it's own pace. I can deal with that.

As long as the fact that over here in Australia there is no such category as first degree homicide, and as long as there is intent for death it is called homicide is ignored, this title is supremely applicable to my current situation.

 Since typing the above paragraph I have calmed down quite a bit, but the fact remains that I am severely pissed off at my younger brothers. It could probably be said that I am no longer at a murder level, and more at a ‘report-to-the-correct-authorities-and-sit-smugly-and-watch’ level, despite my knowledge that I shall be quite uncomfortable if said situation arises.

 Household chores are boring, rote and annoying at best, but I do not appreciate having that tension exacerbated by my brothers acting like racist, sexist, stupid, idiotic, bogan, rude gits. When they were making fun of stereotyped Japanese speech patterns – which they have repeatedly been told not to do – I attempted to stop them by making a comment relying heavily on the fact that they were deliberately mispronouncing their words.

 At which point the elder brother informed me, grinning widely and in the same stupid accent, that I was a “stupid woman”.

 At which point I put down my tea towel, stopped drying clean bowls and retreated to my room in an attempt to prevent myself from either a) screaming at them and increasing the hilarity of the situation in their eyes, or b) physically hurting them, which I sincerely doubted would have turned out well in any respect.

 I intended to stay in my bedroom for a couple of minutes in order to cool off and then return to the chore and complete it quickly. I did not except to be followed and offered a false bribe to return. From both of them. Neither of them seemed to see what was wrong with their actions, even after my explaining.

 And that is the reason for the title of this post.

Old Habits

Ok, once I made a comment in one of the Twilight recaps, and pastiche_cain sent me a monster plot bunny. This is the result of that plot bunny winning out over my other commitments. I haven't actually finished the story, but I don't think it's going to be particularly long.

Fandom: Supernatural and Twilight
Rating: Pssh... um, probably not for littlies, though the likelihood of any reading this is smaller than they are.
Timeline: Just after Bella's met up with Charlie in Breaking Dawn after being vamped, and lets just assume that for SPN everything has happened happily. (Note: Being Australian and channel 10 being a pain in the neck, Supernatural season 6 hasn't been released over here, ergo I don't know what happens. My knowledge stops at season 5. Just sayin')
Disclaimer: I own nothing that is seen here, Twilight and Supernatural belong to their respective owners. This is for entertainment purposes only and I make no money from this venture.
A/N: Well, what more can I say that hasn't been said?

Identifying Dragons

There are Dragons all around us, many types of them. You can identify a Dragon through three basic traits – an unswerving passion, a fiery disposition and sheer determination to do anything they turn their hand to. When you see these traits, you have found a Dragon, and you can derive what type of Dragon a person is by identifying their particular passion. Listed here are a few of the more common Dragons.

Rigmarole: 1. Confused, rambling, or incoherent discourse; nonsense
   2. A complicated, petty set of procedures.
