This is a Christmas Card Post! Basically, leave your address here (all comments are screened; I promise not to sell your contact details to telemarketers/fictional characters/the devil) and at some time that is actually appropriate, once I calculate the length of time it takes for international postage, I will send you a card.
Yes, I will send cards anywhere, IDC if you live on the moon. If you have Christmas Card Posts of your own or want my address, just let me know and I can post on them/PM you. ♥
...For the second meme, though, any fandom I'm familiar with goes.
Give me a prompt and I will try and fill it with something. No promises on length or quality, but you'll get something fanfiction-like.
Give me a character from any fandom I know at least fairly well, and I will tell you:
A) My OTP
B) The runner up
C) The anti-ship
D) My unpopular fannish opinion on said character
E) One person he/she never fell in love with, and why
More substantial post coming...tonight or tomorrow, but in other news, I had a really fun time hanging around the city on Friday night and derping around in photobooths with kurope! WE SO CLASSY.
Ask me anything. Ask me about my life, about how my day was, about what I like to do on my spare time. No matter how personal, I will answer. Or maybe you don't have a question. Maybe there is something you've been wanting to tell me for a long time but never had the courage to. Maybe you secretly hate me or love me or wish we were closer. This is the place to tell me.
Anon enabled, comments screened, but I'll probably unscreen when I reply. If you want your comment to remain screened, just let me know in the comment. Not that I really expect many to utilise this, anyhow.
( And here they are!Collapse )
2) I quit my job. I'm working my last shifts this weekend! I guess I'll miss it a little, but the reduced stress and increased free time will be lovely.
3) Still cosplaying Franziska von Karma for Manifest. I have...the lower half of her costume, the pattern and the fabric for her vest, the wig...but I'm aware there's a still lot more else to do. x.x
So, lythdan, your LiveJournal reveals...
You are... 20% unique (blame, for example, your interest in when franziska tops), 20% peculiar, 22% interesting, 22% normal and 15% herdlike (partly because you, like everyone else, enjoy you). When it comes to friends you are popular. In terms of the way you relate to people, you are wary of trusting strangers. Your writing style (based on a recent public entry) is conventional.
Your overall weirdness is: 45
(The average level of weirdness is: 29.
You are weirder than 84% of other LJers.)
Find out what your weirdness level is!
Apparently, my interest in Franziska topping makes me weird.
...Please comment here if you would beg to differ. :3
...and well, webcams aren't really of good enough quality to pick up on those sort of little cues, are they? IDK if I'm just frustrated because I feel like my real world relationships have gone to shit...or...whatever.
( Cutting the rest of this because it makes no sense, I"m tired, and I have a plane to catch.Collapse )
Your dominant hues are red and yellow... most of what you do is motivated by your need to change things and have a good time, but you've been known to settle down and think out a situation, too. You tend to surprise people just when they're starting to feel like they've got you down.
Your saturation level is low - You stay out of stressful situations and advise others to do the same. You may not be the go-to person when something really needs done, but you know never to blow things out of proportion.
Your outlook on life is very bright. You are sunny and optimistic about life and others find it very encouraging, but remember to tone it down if you sense irritation.
Spot on or what?
Also, to the Ace Attorney Disco crew, I love you even when I Rickroll you. ♥
Also, when I hide in your closets at night. It is ALL OUT OF LOVE. Yes, even the creepy name calling. :3
To be honest, seventeen's kind of a non-year - sixteen brought about learning to drive and being legally allowed to have sex, while being seventeen brings me solely a 198c hourly pay increase at work! ...Actually, I think that's probably slightly more beneficial than the aforementioned.
I suppose I also have a year's worth of added maturity under my belt - well, actually, sometimes, I'm not too sure about that. Seventeen does sound less childish than sixteen, however.
My parents gave me $100, which I was honestly not expecting, and a cheesecake. They actually remembered my birthday this year too, which is always a plus! Aaand that's my birthday haul so far.
SPAM UP THIS POST, guys. Or not; whatever floats your boat - but I'd just like to say that having you all around - and yes, this extends to everyone on my flist - has really helped me through a difficult couple of weeks. ♥
One little compliment can make you feel amazing. So give me a compliment, anything in the entire world, even that my shoelaces are pretty. Put this in your journal. And once you get some comments, put that entry in a memory or tag and when you are feeling down, just go to that entry and this will remind you how great you are. Comments are going to be screened so none of you will know if I'm über-popular who gets over 100 comments on this or a total loser who doesn't get any.
Spread the love, guys. ♥
I got Ace Attorney Investigations today, and it is fucking awesome. I'm only partway through the third case as of now, and am about to fall asleep, but hrrng, I hope to finish this game by Friday at the very latest. Needless to say, I did very little else this evening, but, yeah. It was worth it.
( THOUGHTS SO FAR. BEWARE OF SPOILERS.Collapse )
TL;DR: Franziska, why can't I quit you. B| It is so very rare for me to just become...enthralled with a character the way I did with her, but I think she's gonna be a favourite for a while to come.
Whipping, scrabble, kangaroo babbies, quotes, burgers
( Strangely concise.Collapse )
...And this! Ask me one fandom-related question in the comments. This can be fandom-specific, general, or about fandom/lj stuff/fic writing/etc. in general. Favorite character, favorite moment, unpopular opinion, something about a fic of mine... whatever. Wackiness encouraged.
Also I'm back from Sydney and neutraltwin is down here now! And that is all that is of interest. ♥
In other news, I did this meme like, two years ago, but so much has changed since then, I did new ones!
...and that is probably the most interesting anecdote that summarises these past two days. This is really just a preface so I can steal some memes off usernameism.
I am totally up for some new people to get to know, is all!
Also: I have one day left in which I have no plans these holidays, and they have gone by SO quickly. I'm gonna blink one day and find myself in uni!
ETA: Did I really just reserve Manfred at discedo? ...Maaan, I better get that paradisa app in for Franziska. :B
ETA 2: So like, three hours after submitting the reserve, I put in the app. :B How did that happen, I don't even know. You'd think I'd have done Ziska's first, considering it's, you know, FRANZISKA, but, yeah, apparently not.
You shouldn't try and change the people around you, whether you love them or hate them. It's far too tiring and more often than not, has disappointing results. You simply do your best, for yourself as a person, and lead by example. Enjoy life, succeed, and those around you will want to be like you too. It is that effect that has the most powerful influence; this is how much one person can truly change the world. Isn't that why people admire celebrities? Certainly, most of them are extremely talented people, but the point is, they have it made. It makes people wonder what's missing in their own lives.
Of course, it's more personal with people you actually know. That doesn't mean it has to be any different. You doing your best inspires those around you to do their best, and the effect should flow on forever. That's what friendship should be about. That's what life should be about. Failure should only be viewed as a reminder that you're human, then an obstacle to overcome. Your friends will do the best to help you, and you will do your best to succeed. There shouldn't be a need to force anyone to change - it's better to let them do it under their own terms. It lasts longer. What matters most is that you're there when people need support, but have the judgement to know when to let them stand on their own two feet. Any successful person has both a combination of self-determination and support. You can't have a head without a neck or a neck without a head. And don't you want to be that person?
The most two important things in any relationship are open communication and respect. Lies only beget more lies, and if you aren't being honest when people need it the most, then you're betraying their trust. If you lie about what a relationship means to you, you're also lying to yourself. And would you do any of that to someone you respect? Respect also means to respect their boundaries. Just to respect them.
Is that it? Or does anyone want to play devil's advocate? I am also aware that my personal philosophies can often be too passive/idealistic/whatever for people's tastes.
TL;DR Be awesome - this encourages the people around you to be awesome. Then everyone is awesome and having an awesome time.
Of course, if you're out there and lurking and wondering why you can't see my journal all of a sudden, just let me know and I'll add you back. ♥
To the rest of you: keep being awesome. You have no idea how much you brighten up my day.
