klena: (because we'll be together)
So my plan was to go into Leeds and just wander around, enjoying the Bank Holiday. And I didn't because I am lazy. So I have been sitting online for nearly 6 hours, alternating between 9Gag, downloading Opera (Firefox just will not allow me to stream video without freezing every 30 seconds) and looking at jobs. Yes, jobs. I am being all responsible, aren't we all proud!

I also signed up for a Dreamwidth account because it seems like a lot of friends are getting dual journals/abandoning LJ after the latest palava with the commenting changes so I am there as Klena. Let me know if you guys are over there.

Then I created my 2012 resolutions. Most of them are quite grown up - get a job by the end of this month, start paying off my student loan, look at pension schemes, visit home more often. But there are creative things there too. I have one for my soul as well. But I think the best one I've decided upon is:

You know that confident, ballsy, "Fuck 'em", good looking young woman that people keep telling you they see? You are that person. Try not to forget it.

On New Years Eve a friend from Anime Soc told me she had had a little bit to drink but wanted to admit to me that when she met me, she had a crush on me because I was confident and secure in myself and wasn't afraid to stand up for myself/things I believed in. I was so flattered! And I forget that a lot, that the person I am socially is also me. I like her a lot, she's fun. And powerful. And people around me like her so I am going to remember that I'm fucking smart and silly and powerful and confident.

Even if I don't, fuck it. Fake it 'til you make it.

I had a weekend filled with good things! A lot of chilling, some GLORIOUS weather that hit 27 yesterday and the return of October! For those not aware, October is one of my favourite months as it leads up to Halloween!! Also, since about 2005, I have been half-heartedly taking part in something [livejournal.com profile] kacfrog711 started called Dark Art October. Basically, it is a month of twisted fan art all through the month. Delicious.

This year I plan to be better! Last night I sat on the sofa with Dave, watching "Shaun of the Dead" (how perfect) and started to sketch. Sadly it hit midnight before the image was done but I sat up regardless and finished it. I even used colours. COLOURS. I KNOW! Markers, even! I'm actually really proud of it, even though the scanner destroyed it >:(

Lisa and burnt Alessa from Silent Hill 1. I have never properly played these games but I am so in love with them, TERRIFYING :D

I think that's why I'm still walking around )

So there may be a lot more art posted in this journal over the next month. I really should be good and upload it to my art account as well - [livejournal.com profile] icarusishappy.

In other happy making news, I am doing a bit of cosplay this month so I went out in the GLORIOUS SUNSHINE yesterday to do a bit of Charity Shop Buying. And it was amazing! As I mentioned to [livejournal.com profile] philosiraptor, I got a handbag, belt, shirt, top, trenchcoat and jacket all for about £21. That's roughly $30. AH-MAZING. So I camwhored it up. With my webcam. Because I am vain like that.

Also, behold my random silly faces.

commodity fetishism, how I have not used that tag for a while! )

What else have I done....OH YES. REMEMBER I TOLD YOU ALL ABOUT MY ZOMBIE MISBEHAVING? How could you forget? Well I woke up today and checked Facebook to have a message from one of my fellow zombies saying "you're famous!" plus another zombie tagging me in a photo. They used a photo they took of us in the lift as our Zombie Base Camp for The Independent on Sunday. OH MY GOD, I was so thrilled. I want a larger copy of the photo! We look awesome! Check it out for yourself:

The Zombies Are Coming

;____; so proud ;_____;

Here's the photo! Behold my RAWR face



I love zombies, you guys. So much ♥

How were your weekends? ♥
klena: (BAMFs)
How weird is it that as soon as I sign up for the two week free Paid LJ trial I suddenly have very little to say? Good job me, all that extra icon space going to waste! That really is the only reason I see to have a Paid account - all the extra icon space. I don't really use any of the other features.

The past week has been a tangle of house hunting and various social activities. There was a friend's 25th birthday last Friday where we all went out to Thai Cottage and had lovely Thai food. It was awesome because there was about 20 of us there and the night was going exceedingly well until I had an afterdinner mint and broke off a good 40% of one of my teeth. Luckily (?) it was a tooth I've had a HUGE root canal done on, so I wasn't in pain but the break was so sharp that I couldn't talk or swallow without pain because the broken edges kept rubbing my tongue raw ;____; Which resulted in little sleep that night and stumbling to Boots at 8am on Saturday morning to buy a temporary filling kit. Which, o be fair, did the trick until I got to the dentist on Monday morning.

Saturday was house-hunting then catching up on Friday night sleep and then Eurovision at Sci-Fi House. Absolutely hilarious, even if Azerbijan were blatantly not the best entry. Boooooooooo. Then we watched "Zombie Women of Satan" and "Black Sheep" - both awful and hilarious! Lots of boobs and blood and zombie sheep. Excellent night!

[edit] OH GOD HOW COULD I FORGET ABOUT NEIL GAIMAN'S "DOCTOR WHO" EPISODE?! My heart! The TARDIS and the Doctor! All the tension! It was amazing and some was quite creepy and it made my heart clench a lot. Then Confidential had Neil talking about it and narrating some of the script and my heart! The noises I made that only whales could hear! ♥

Rest of the weekend passed uneventfully and the week has been strange too. Especially as we're having Mother's Meeting tonight because Em couldn't make it last night. So I'm all a muddle! We were supposed to view another house tonight but they cancelled because the decorators have started painting and all that jazz so it wasn't suitable for visits. Boooooooo.

At least there will be tasty curry noms tonight! And excellent company too, of course.

The lovely [livejournal.com profile] rogue_dreams made me a little crotchet-bobble Bat Luck Cat and it is adorable! Also, considering my luck the last few weeks/months it fits perfectly! In the last week I have managed to: break a tooth, swallow temporary filling, strained my eyes, lose my housekeys WHILST I AM IN THE HOUSE, banged into a box that HAS NOT MOVED in 4 months and broke a drawer. Something about May clearly doesn't like me! /o\

The past few weeks have been filled with fucktons of "Inception" and "The Social Network" fanficcs. It's strange, but in all the years I've been in fandoms, these are two that have really, really grabbed me! Probably because the quality of writing in them is so phenomenally high, it's astounding. I also have been saving .gifs like they are going out of fashion. So many excellent .gifs! Hilarious and heart-breaking! My favourite kinds of .gif. Share some of my joy!

klena: (all the way up to heaven)
Now, unless you were under a rock today, you may have heard today was the Royal Wedding. So we had a party at Han and Guy's today. I missed almost the entire ceremony because of picking up some food and stuff for the party but I dolled myself up and spent the day in marvellous company. It would have been lovely if Dave could have been there, but it wasn't meant to be apparently.

We had Prosecco and strawberries to toast the couple when they shared their first kiss as a married couple, which was a really nice tradition. So I got a little pissed and comfy and sleepy which we cured by watching "The Queen" and then having more tea and playing "Balderdash". [livejournal.com profile] rogue_dreams made a fucking glorious cake and we had strawberries and cream and summer foods and om nom nom tasty.

Friends of ours also got married today, [livejournal.com profile] mofette and her partner Richard, who won the Hobgoblin "Alternative Royal Wedding" competition. I look forward to seeing the photos of that.

Today made me feel a lot better, but I know it's a process of highs and lows. I just hope this all get resolved sooner rather than later. I feel so ready to start moving on with our lives. Even all the scary settled adult shit we've discussed, all that seems just...exciting rather than scary. Weird!

Here's a few photos taken from today under the cut

The Royal Union of Prince William and Catherine Middleton )
klena: (when both our cars collide)
So. As my roller-coastery tweets might communicate to people, the past two weeks have been swinging from cluster-fuck to resolution back into cluster-fuck. It's been getting a lot harder to cope the last few days, particularly with the business being quieter and our anniversary approaching and my mood dropping dramatically.

I'd been toying with making a seperate LJ filter for being in the know of The Situation, and adding some people that I trust, but I keep not doing it.
Number 1, because it'd just be filled with swearing and rage and lots of negativity
and
Number 2, because it's probably only of interest to me.
So that plan went out the window.

I keep feeling a little crazy!face though. Like I want to go and bleach all my hair and dye it some bright obnoxious colour like Clementine or to smash glass bottles against a wall or to scream lots. It's not nice.

Been wanting to pick up my sketchbook again too, and do fanart. Not anything of my own, don't feel creative enough again for that, but fanart for all the awesome "Inception" fics I've read, particularly [livejournal.com profile] foxxcub's non-fic fake!boyfriends and for [livejournal.com profile] whitehaiku's no-longer "Skeptics And Innocents" and for [livejournal.com profile] philosiraptors and [livejournal.com profile] mrsronweasley's "Becoming Joan" verse. However my sketchbook still sits on the architect desk.

Mother's Meeting this week went a little awry as [livejournal.com profile] rogue_dreams was unable to come as she was engaging in Epic Baking in preparation for Maelstrom and Emma was on her way to mine when she got called to the police station (she's a trainer lawyer and was on call tonight). So it was just me and Hannah, and I cooked. For those who know, I am not a confident cook and worry about fucking it up a lot. But tonight I cooked Lemon Chicken and Courgette Pasta and it was pretty fucking tasty. I am very happy with myself. Last week's Chicken and Potato pie wasn't too bad either :)

I feel absolutely fucking knackered but too wired to go to sleep yet. And there is nothing on TV. Awesome.

In conclusion

Tom Gunn - "The Reassurance"

About ten days or so
After we saw you dead
You came back in a dream
I'm alright now you said.

And it was you, although
you were fleshed out again:
You hugged us all round then,
And gave your welcoming beam.

How like you to be kind,
Seeking to reassure.
And, yes, how like my mind
To make itself secure.

And in complete contrast

klena: (sunlight surrouds you)
The first big thing to say about this entry is:
1000 ENTRIES, FUCK YEAH

It's only taken me nearly 9 years to get here, and has been stupidly helped out by crossposting of my tweets. I never thought I'd get to a point of 1000 entries! But here I am. Have some celebratory dancing .gifs!





I feel that adequately celebrates 1000 entries! I've been planning on writing this entry for about 3 weeks, but just haven't got around to it, or wanted to have a lot of good content and then I got distracted by lots of Inception fics so. Well. But I did go back and look at my very first LJ entry, oh my Lord.

I was 15, and this December I will turn 25. I honestly cannot believe how much has changed in that time. But then again, it was the period where people go through the biggest personality overhauls so it's not much of a surprise. It still was a little embarrassing, and also sort of sad to see me discussing people who aren't in my life anymore. But that's the way it goes.

I was going to do this huge thoughtful entry, but it's not really in my head, so instead I'm going to post a few little bits from the internet that have made me happy the past few weeks.

First! Poetry! One of Audrey Hepburn's favourite poems.

Unending Love by Rabindranath Tagore

I seem to have loved you in numberless forms, numberless times,
In life after life, in age after age forever.
My spell-bound heart has made and remade the necklace of songs
That you take as a gift, wear round your neck in your many forms

In life after life, in age after age forever.

Whenever I hear old chronicles of love, its age-old pain,
Its ancient tale of being apart or together,
As I stare on and on into the past, in the end you emerge
Clad in the light of a pole-star piercing the darkness of time:

You become an image of what is remembered forever.

You and I have floated here on the stream that brings from the fount
At the heart of time love of one for another.
We have played alongside millions of lovers, shared in the same
Shy sweetness of meeting, the same distressful tears of farewell -
Old love, but in shapes that renew and renew forever.

Today it is heaped at your feet, it has found its end in you,
The love of all man's days both past and forever:
Universal joy, universal sorrow, universal life,
The memories of all loves merging with this one love of ours -
And the songs of everypoet both past and forever.

How beautiful is that?

Second! An excellent quote from Tim Minchin that I discovered, when trying to find a download of his song "White Wine in the Sun" , which is a gorgeous non-Christian Christmas song. Here's the song on Youtube if you fancy a listen! White Wine In The Sun.

Anyway, he was discussing the controversy behind the song and was asked "Your song "White Wine in the Sun", which includes lyrics critical of Christianity, caused controversy last week in Australia when it was used on an album of Christmas songs sold to raise money for the Salvation Army. What's your take on the fuss?

I think the Salvos are idiots. I didn't know they would benefit from the CD, but by the time I found out I didn't want to make too much of a fuss. So I gave my song free, then they turn around and say that they don't agree with the sentiment of the song. Obviously, they are talking about how I think Jesus is not magic. Part of me is hugely outraged by what imbeciles they are, to bite the hand that feeds them and put their proselytising above charity.

It's a terrible paradox that most charities are driven by religious belief. I believe very strongly in giving only to secular charities, because I don't think there should be a back end to altruism. I won't make this mistake again. I tweeted that if people want to buy my version of the song independently, I'll give the proceeds away, as I did last year, to the National Autistic Society, a non-proselytising charity.

Christmas means much to billions of people who don't believe in Jesus, and if you think that Christmas without Jesus is not Christmas, then you're out of touch, and if you think altruism without Jesus is not altruism, then you're a dick.


What a wonderful sentiment, and really true. That last paragraph is the most important part, and the bit that made me nod and smile at the screen. It also doesn't hurt that the song is wonderful, and makes my heart just clench with joy listening to it.

Third and final! Who thinks today's A Softer World strip needs to be have an "Inception" re-imagining?



Fucking heartbreaking, but could turned into any pairing that people wanted. The first idea I had was a Mal/Cobb version, based on those arguments that Mal actually was right, and did wake up, and watches over Cobb as he lives in his dream!reality. Which also really works with the alt-text over the image: "Please don't leave me alone with our stupid children"

Yes yes?

To everyone who read this, well done! You deserve nice shiny things. Since it's been a 1000 entries, maybe I should start being more active with posting. If you still read my journal, then you should comment! Or let me know, especially if this is the only way you know me :)

Originally posted by [livejournal.com profile] kylecassidy at advice to new photographers
I'd posted this in my own LJ, but it might be useful to people here:


A Reader Writes: I want to be a photographer someday. Any advice?


Yes, lots.


Photography is a mixture of Artistic Ability and Technical Skill -- the magic of the mix isn't written in stone. The world is filled with technically proficient but artistically uninspired photographers, there seem to be a smaller number of artistically gifted but technically unsavvy artists, but they're out there as well. But the most successful people have a mixture of both -- they have an artistic vision, and they posses the technical skills to know how to make that a reality. The technical skills are the easy part, you can learn them from a book -- f-stops and shutter speeds and light modifiers, etc. The difficult thing to come up with is an idea.


0) Possibly the most important thing of all: Find creative people and make them part of your world. They don't have to be photographers. They can be writers, or musicians, or actors or puppet makers. Have a peer group of people who are doing things. They'll be your inspiration, your facilitators, your idea makers, your artistic partners. Do this for the rest of your life. Artists rarely survive in a vacuum.


1) Get a camera. It doesn't matter what kind. Eventually you'll most likely end up with a Digital SLR but in the meantime a point and shoot, your cell phone, a 1946 Brownie Box Camera, all these will work to start out.


2) Study photography -- this doesn't mean go to school for photography, but it means pay attention to photographs tear photos that you like out of magazines and keep them in a scrap book, get photography books from the library, from the bookstore, at yard sales. Learn what types of photography you like. Landscapes? People? Bands? Artificially lit? This will start to provide you with your visual vocabulary -- which will be important in figuring out what you want to photograph. Given a camera many new photographers are left baffled as to what they ought to be taking photos of. Subscribe to photography magazines, fashion magazines, travel magazines.


3) Take photos. What is it you're interested in? Enlist friends. Take trips, set up elaborate hoaxes, copy great works of art, copy not so great works of art.


4) Make a portfolio of your 12 best photos. these can be 4x6 1 hour prints. Every month try and replace at least one of these with a better photo. Do this for the rest of your life.


5) Evaluate your equipment. When you know specifically why what you have can't do what you want, it's time to think about upgrading. Do this for the rest of your life.


6) Find someone who will pay you to take photographs. It's always easier to learn on someone elses dime. It doesn't matter what the job is -- assistant to another photographer, part time local newspaper, photographing houses for a Realtor, etc.


7) Go to school. You can learn a lot more quickly this way. Things like advanced lighting techniques, gallery framing, etc. can be more quickly figured out in an environment like this.


8) Show your work. It doesn't have to be in a traditional gallery, it can be in your parents garage, or in your stairwell. Some friends and I used to have an open-air art gallery we called "Show up and Show" where we'd meet along a length of chain link fence, hang out photos up and stand around and talk to passers by.


9) Take lots of photos, throw out the bad ones, only ever show people your best. Do this for the rest of your life.


10) Stay busy. The opposite of busy is bored. Don't visit that place. Do this for the rest of your life.


Hope this helps.

Hello my beautiful friends

I have not returned entirely, just taking a break from procastinating from studying for my final exam.

I do, however, have a question for the creative people on the list! Regarding photography in particular.

I may or may not be the photographer for Dave's next photoshoot, which is awesome and terrifying because these are photos for his business. We've been having discussions about the camera to use, which one would produce the best photos and Dave's narrowed his choices down to two cameras:
- The Canon EOS 500D DSLR
and
- The Nikon D5000 DSLR

Based on what you know about cameras, which camera would be the best choice for a studio photoshoot, producing high quality images?

Any and all input would be very much appreciated. :)
klena: (going down swinging)
Meme from the beautiful [livejournal.com profile] blindeadmcjones
* Leave me a comment saying "We used to be French but now we are underwater"
* I'll respond by asking you five questions so I can satisfy my curiosity
* Update your journal with the answers to the questions. Include this explanation in the post and offer to ask other people questions.

Here were her questions for me

1. You are granted the power to become a virtuoso in any instrument, a master of any art form, fluent in any language, a top athlete in any sport etc. Which one specifically would you choose?

2. Who is your favourite writer/author and why? Have they influenced your own writing?

3. Pick one line from a song that means a lot to you, and let us know why!

4. Tell me a little something-something about Dave. A habit, favourite flavour crisp, a way he makes you happy or mad or anything!

5. I know you've been super busy recently. How do you let your creativity out? Are you still drawing and writing? Or does it all get channelled into the amazing costumes I see on facebook?

My answers )

I was going to ramble about Valentines Day and university and music now but I have a doctor's appointment in an hour and a half and I need to grab things for the manga meet after, get dressed, take off nail polish, wash dishes and pick up an essay, so that's all for the minute!
klena: (told you I'd be here forever)
I promise Lauren, the awesome [livejournal.com profile] crazychickencow I'd do this for her. And I am. because she is having a slightly rough time at the minute and i am trying to make it better with fandom and bandom. So, here is me trying!

First! A drabble!
Arashi, Aiba/Jun, something fluffy
1,541 words (WHAT SORT OF DRABBLE IS THAT?)

Sort of a Mafia AU? I don't know, just go with it folks. Cut text by My Chemical Romance, inspiration by Batman: Gotham Knight. No I don't understand it either.Also, for something that was supposed to be a drabble, it got sort of out of hand. FAIL

well I won't go down by myself but i'll go down with my friends )

Or, rather apparently this is just going to be the drabble which actually is more of a ficlet because the ficlet idea is bouncing about my brain but it is after 3 and i am still sort of ill so there will be ficlet tomorrow.

/o\ utterly made of fail, i am sorry Lauren.

In other news I made my brother watch a little of Life On The Murder Scene with me because i am trying to get him to study other drummers and their style so we watched some of the live footage and fuck me, BOB BRYAR. My love for you is not exactly pure but it is burning. Like a sun. And Frank, you are a tiny powerhouse of makeup and ink and awesome. And Gerard is campy and makeup and greasy and his stupid face my god people. My Chemical Romance, my god ♥

Also, I am falling completely back in love with Three Cheers For Sweet Revenge. Expect rambling when i am, y'know, vaguely coherent again.
klena: (meaning branded onto my face)
Lots of photos in this post! Be warned - even though I am going to put them behind cuts and the like.

Firstly. (a remention of last night) MY FUCKING BROTHER s;df;lsdkfsdkOH MY GOD

Second! Before work completely fucked me over (and fucked me off) yesterday I was pinned to Booth One (first drive through window) and did a few sketches in ink on napkins. Because there was boredom. >( SO! Have images of Mikey Fucking Way and Frank dealing with a zombie, random princess girl and zombie!Mikey Way. Which is the order I did them in. The Mikey-and-Frank-ZOMBIE pic was done as I was thinking about a part from [livejournal.com profile] bexless's fic about Frank-And-Gerard. Except Frank and Mikey were facing a werewolf in that image.

ART )


Fourthly! This is mainly aimed at [livejournal.com profile] crazychickencow and related to the Bandom!Zombie!Vampire!AU I'm writing now.

So! I have not bought a music magazine in about 2 years but I was down the street early for work one day last week, wandered innocently into Easons (to look at canvas's hush) and picked up Film and Rock Sound. Rock Sound had posters with it. My Chemical Romance posters. AND ONE OF THE IMAGES WAS THIS.

GOD WANTS ME TO WRITE THIS FIC )

SERIOUSLY. FIRST MAGAZINE IN YEARS AND TALKING NON-STOP ABOUT ZOMBIE!VAMPIRE!BANDOM!FIC FOR WEEKS AND THE POSTERS I GET HAVE BLOODY!MCR!ZOMBIES. \o/ God loves me and wants this fic. I am convinced.

Fifth! I love ink. I like to work with ink and i like to finger paint. and i LOVE improving old half-finished awful pieces of art.

LIKE SO )

Sixth. I have uploaded more icons! Love me some icons. AND ALSO HAVE BLOODY/ZOMBIE ICONS! \o/ good times GREAT DAYS. So expect them used a lot. YAY!

Seventh. Um....my brother is going to teach me to play bass a little. And has agreed with little-to-no argument about teaching me My Chemical Romance songs. \o/

Eighth. PANIC AT THE DISCO - LESS THAN TWO WEEKS - OH MY GOD

Nineth. I love tea. I love tea SO FUCKING MUCH
klena: (Default)
So, I have this BEAUTIFUL GORGEOUS CANADIAN BEAUTY that calls me her wife and she beta'd for me and I love her!

The City Lights, They Shine But Not Half As Brightly As You

Arashi, Ohmiya
951 words
For [livejournal.com profile] crazychickencow, who flailed at me one night AGES AGO and told - ORDERED me to write her fic and I said 'ok' and only got around to it late on Saturday night after work and hours in the dark reading bandom fic. So slightly unusual piece! But written with ALL THE LOVE EVER! Much, much love to the fabulous [livejournal.com profile] waxrose for the speedy beta and awesome comments. Love you wifey! ♥

the )

- - - - - - - - -

IN OTHER NEWS!

1. [livejournal.com profile] mcee I am blaming you (and [livejournal.com profile] stereomer) for the fact that after you and [livejournal.com profile] stereomer talking about Asshole!Frank because I started daydreaming in work about it, y'know in an attempt to stop me GOING POSTAL AND KILLING CUSTOMERS last night because they WOULD NOT STOP COMING - GO EAT A SALAD, YOU BASTARDS, which progressed from asshole!frank musing in my head into plotting a McDonalds/Fast Food Restaurant AU with bandom. I BLAME YOU. BECAUSE IT WON'T LEAVE MY HEAD /o\

2. The clothes started arriving! \o/ Expect ryro-styled camwhoring once I return from work of my new FUCKING AWESOME t-shirt and Panic!Hoodie

3. I have been in work since Friday. Friday and Saturday I had different shifts. From Sunday until tomorrow night I have been on closes. ARGH. 4 closes in a row is NOT GOOD TIMES D:

4. Once I get out of my close tomorrow night I am crawling into bed with my sketchbook, my laptop and I am going to sit and draw and read Big Bang fic and drink tea and it is going to be FUCKING AWESOME.

[edit] 5. TELL ME TO GET OFF THE INTERNET - I DO NOT HAVE TIME TO READ AND COMMENT ON EVERYONE'S JOURNALS BECAUSE I HAVE LESS THAN 30 MINUTES UNTIL I HAVE TO GO TO WORK AND AM NOT DRESSED YET. ...I am so fail worthy sometimes.
klena: (Default)
IT IS NEARLY 5AM AND I CAN'T GO TO BED BEFORE I POST THIS FOR [livejournal.com profile] mcee BECAUSE MY SOUL WON'T ALLOW ME. BECAUSE I OWED IT TO HER.

Where did the idea come from? a week and a half ago [livejournal.com profile] mcee posted this Okay, so, I've been wanting an AU where Frank never joins MCR and Pencey falls apart and Frank just ends up a MCR fanboy and goes to so many shows that the band starts to remember him etc etc, right? IT'S FRANK/GERARD, NATCH.

But people tell me this is creepy. :|


And in an effort to prove it wasn't creepy I whored myself out to her offered to art if she'd write the fic.

HERE'S MY END OF OUR AGREEMENT, DEAR! >D ♥

Frank thought, trying not to molest Gerard right then and there, that he was suddenly really REALLY glad he hadn't worn his Mikey Fuckin Way shirt... )

....FIRST BANDOM PIC!

\o/
klena: (canopies and grapes)
So, because I am the biggest legend known to man, hi! Nearly a week without posting only to let you all know that today is my last day in Boston. And I may not be around again until I get home this day next week. :D

Let me repeat that again: until I GET HOME NEXT WEEK

\o/

So, in celebration of that, I think you should all write/draw me something to celebrate my adventures. Because...you just should! It's been a long five/six months >D

Anyways!

I'll be around most of today checking things online and trying to sort out things for New York blah blah blah as well as packing and fretting about trying to get everything all in one place. But! Y'know, part of the joy's of travel etc etc.

This also reminds me of something that big-bro-Joey/[livejournal.com profile] whitehaiku said when I was SOBBING OVER MY JOURNAL at his-and-Claire's about writing/typing my adventures up. Which, if there is interest, I could do. Do want? Don't want? All feedback would be appreciated! :D

Now folks! How are things with you? How are you all doing? I miss you! ♥

Oh [livejournal.com profile] sacchifox - your card got sent back to me! Well, to Dei. So I need your address again! Email it to me? :D

For those in the know? Chris comes back to Boston today. IMAGINE MY FREAKOUT

Now! Because I am around for today and a little bit of tomorrow and will be pretty much on my own: suggest things for me to write/draw. Because I bought a set of markers and a new inking pen yesterday and I want to be all creative and stuff. Because New York DECREES IT. Plus, I've got a 4 hour layover before I get on my last plane home and will probably go to JFK early to allay my own fears regarding getting on the plane.

Also! Because I have SEKKRIT PLANS for when I get home - throw a theme at me people! If I have your address - you will be recieving music from me. >D And blantantly stealing the idea from [livejournal.com profile] whitehaiku

[edit] someone remind me when I get home these exact words (if I forget): names, self-indulgent CDs, forgotten letters.
klena: (i stand waiting for you)
So, that meme that [livejournal.com profile] waxrose tagged me in! About writing introspective meme about my lack of writing skills :D )

(music I've heard and want to download)
A Fine Frenzy - "Almost lover"
Yael Naim - "new soul"
Fiction Plane - "two sisters"
klena: (laughter)
1. Because my beloved Canadian beauty is coming home tonight and I have a bunch of ficlets I should type up before I completely forget.

Call me crazy but they are after us (you don't have to know the truth), Arashi )

I was going to throw my 'getting kidnapped by strange Japanese boybands' thing up but it's awful and so. No.

And the first bit of what was supposed to be a little tiny drabble for [livejournal.com profile] crazychickencow to persuade her to write more into the Sho/Nino/Jun angst triangle. Except it's not a drabble and now more than looks like an accompaniment to the main fics. Dammit!

the road to hell is paved with good intentions )

And there's more at ramen with Ohno and Aiba realising something's going on and messing up by trying to help the wierd Nino/Sho/Jun tension they notice and aslkfdlfjks I'LL GET THERE!

2. I SORTED MY FLIGHT HOME TONIGHT AND I DEFINITELY KNOW WHEN I'M GOING HOME AND IT'S, LIKE, 18 DAYS AND OH MY GOD AND MUM SENT MONEY TELLING ME TO TREAT MYSELF. :O

3. ....HOME!

4. I went to Salem today with Fran and got myself Ankh earrings that are beautiful and that I have been desiring since I lost my only cheap and nasty pair just after I started working at McDonalds. ANKH EARRING YAY

5. Will get around to doing that awesome writing meme that [livejournal.com profile] waxrose tagged me for. But first! A little meme.

we all have our reasons for our icons but do you ever wonder what someone means when they use a particular icon in their post/response? Well, now's your chance to ask!

6. (I completely forgot about this until 2 minutes ago) My dreams are getting awesome! On Wednesday night I had this awesome gothic inspired dream where Sho and Kei (yes, as in Sho and Kei from "Moonchild" - Gackt and Hyde) and someone else were travelling with me around these church/house grounds and I mocked them a lot, calling Kei dad and sitting on his shoulders a lot.

Last night my dreams had: me and Gerard Way in gothy dress (and Gerard at one point wearing this Victorian dress I wore in LA with a pair of socks I owe) and walking about this club. He also took my hand and twined my fingers with his when I was leaning against his knees. There was also The Master leaning over my friend Andy who was wearing his Frank N Furter costume and mocking/ fucking with my mind. Um....what else. Oh! Pete Wentz, Gee Way and I all sitting at a table in this diner and Pete gave me his stuff to look after and I didn't look at it or try to pry and this made him really happy. Plus some other stuff that was AMAZINGLY AWESOME regarding travel (and this station that looked a little like the one in Washington) but...\o/
Dreams involving Pete Wentz, Gerard Way and the Master one night and Gackt and Hyde the night before? A++ brain, good work.

Alright. Food. And journal writing and maybe some art. Oh yeah!

The post as best reconstructed. :( FUCK YOU LJ I SHOULD HAVE BEEN ASLEEP LIKE 2 HOURS AGO

And he tells me to sing and I sing and I sing, Aiba/Jun (incomplete-mini-drabble that will probably never be finished. Also - is crap.) )

lyrics that inspire me vaguely!...Also the lyrics to  )

I blame [livejournal.com profile] waxrose for this as I do many other things and I sorta stole her plot bunny and made it awful but referenced something she wrote 'cause her's is awesome and then LOST IT and rewrote what came back and I'm sooorrrrryyyyyyy :(

So many things to say with a broken heart and a straight face, Nino/Jun/Sho )
klena: (he whispers dreams into my ear)
it is nearly 6am in the morning. I should be asleep. And I'm not because I have been faffing about on LJ like a twat for the past bundle of hours since [livejournal.com profile] hybrid_xisha oh so wisely went to bed, reading fic and researching Arashi being special.

And I can't sleep now because I read Death Note fics and now I need to write this.


this colossal mass has broken up to bits in my throat )

Wow. That's awful.

Right, well that was nothing like it was supposed to be. It was supposed to be dark and dangerous and have something along the lines of and Light tapped his fingers and heard nothing but death but apparently not to be.
