I get to see Darcy next Thursday! :D It's been almost a year I think. I still don't have insurance but I really can't put it off anymore. So much has happened, I don't even know how to prioritize a whole damn year.
Classes are good this semester. Math is math, and the teacher is a little to perky for my taste first thing in the morning but so far it's pretty easy going. Development Psychology will end up burying me but I think I'm also going to get a lot out of it in the end. Composition II has potential to be... something. I'm going to have to be careful not to fall too far behind or I'm going to miss out on the fun stuff. ASL is easily my favorite, which is great since I was nervous that I would get overwhelmed like in Spanish. Reading finger spelling is a challenge, but other than that I'm picking up on it pretty quickly.
I've been tentatively watching anime/reading manga again. I really can't afford to get sucked in but it's a nice contrast to regular comics. Hentalia is disgustingly cute as well as strangely informative and Ouran is a good, cutesy time-waster.
My social life really sucks right now, and I'm going to leave that rant for another day when I'm not dizzy with legal speed and lack of sleep. Hopefully I'll be able to summon enough energy to update again sooner rather than later. Until then.
I was in the front row and Ian Sattler started talking about seeing me the day before, and how every time he answered a question he would look at me out of the corner of his eye to see my reaction. If I was bouncing in my seat it was a good deal. I mentioned that Sunday was my birthday and he asked if I wanted to join the panel. Hell yes I want to join! I got to sit next to Art Baltazar and Franco from Tiny Titans, so awesome! Definitely the best birthday ever.
But before all that, I bought $100 dollars worth of Impulse , almost as much in Young Justice, a Captain Boomerang II action figure, a bunch of trades, an awesome Robin shirt, and a bunch of other wonderful stuff. Also I ran into shananagin while I was hunting for Impulse, which was pretty groovy. I knew for sure I had seen her on s_d before, but I couldn't remember where else. Turns out we share a couple of comms like duh, heartbart. I should have known. It's my own fault for lurking so much, I obviously need to write some Young Justice fluff. *goes to go do that*
Ever since I started using facebook I've been using LJ for fanon and not much else. And while I have had things to say about recent events, I haven't really had the energy to post.
God, were do I start.
I joinedboostle recently, I'm not sure why I haven't before. I was kind of surprised at the number of people from piper_trickster, such is the power of bromance I suppose. Most importantly, I now have Blue Beetle and Booster Gold action figures. I'm so happy that they're more of less proportionate to Bart and Max, otherwise it'd be hella awkward.

Right now I'm saving all my money for Wizard World Chicago Con for my 20th birthday. :3 A lot of the details still need to be sorted out, but the tickets are bought, yay. Now I need to decide who's going with me...
The power my house is currently out, but at least my laptop is still working, so I'm practicing using my speech recognition software right now. I think it's coming along very well. I should probably update my journal. Maybe I'll use the voice recognition to write it. Sometimes it has trouble with more obscure words, such as names of Greek gods like Dionysus and Hephaestus. You see, it didn't even know the name Hephaestus. Not surprising, considering he's a pretty obscure god. I bought a pair of headphones today, but they broke as soon as I opened it. But that's which you get for $8.
I'm doing horrible in my Composition I class, I'm just can't write my assignments fast enough. My God, I'm starting to really hate global warming. I'm doing great in Psychology though, I'm pretty sure I'm getting in A. In College 101 I have a lot of makeup to do. In fact, I should be doing it right now instead of chatting with my computer. Overall schools been pretty draining, and it's making it very obvious my lack of social life. I hadn't really hung out with anyone in a long time, it's kind of depressing.
I finally got my hands on Y: The Last Man and Invincible. They both rock really hard, and wish I had more money. And dude, when did the new Welcome to Tranquility come out? I'd pick that up so bad, that story made Gail Simone one of my favorite authors, by far.
Speaking of comics, Flash: Rebirth was… interesting to say the least. I'm not sure if Bart was in character or not.I think Bart is supposed to represent all the newer Flash readers who don't know anything about Barry and are skeptical. However, it makes sense Bart would still be hurt about Max and be a bit cold towards Barry. What has his grandpa ever really done for him? And if you want to be really shallow, you could argue Barry is stealing Bart's thunder of his return. I'm also wondering if Owen is ever gonna be brought up. Johns certainly knows his Rogue's history, so he should be well aware of what a mess that is and that it needs to be cleared up. Maybe we'll get an answer in Legion of Three Worlds, who knows.
Then my inner fan girl starts to wonder whether or not Piper and Trickster are ever going to come up again. It's starting to feel like Countdown was a waste of 52 issues and that there wasn't any reason to kill James in the first place. Even Rogue's Revenge seems pointless and frankly kinda wanky at this point. Was Hartley used in Final Crisis at all? As far as I can tell nothing Johns wrote Rogue-wise had shit to do with the main plot. This entire thing has just been a build up to Flash: Rebirth. Way to get the fangirls all riled up just to let us down, Johns. I want my Pipster damn it!
This has been a really interesting to write, I think I'm getting all hang of this dictating thing. Surprisingly enough, this entire thing has been written using my voice. I don't think I'll do this for every post though, it's still too finicky.
For Spring Break I'll be going up to Wisconsin, though God only knows what I'll do there. Blake is going to be in Hawaii for some band related reason, so I will be at a lack for someone to geek out with.
This month I promised myself I'd get a bunch of indie comics to try out, and I really enjoyed them!
( Reviews in which I more or less say I adored everything. Maybe I'm just easy? )
The world of indie comics is a big, scary place when your just starting out, so please send some more recs my way, especially if it isn't getting the hype it deserves. Even older stuff that if I consider myself a comic fan I would have read by now. Webcomics are great too, I just started reading Planet Karen, so awesome.
I have no idea how I'm going to get back history now. My "local" shop has shit all for backstock and I don't have a credit card. Balls.
I'm angry, but not at anyone in perticular. What s_d was doing was illegal, and it was only by the grace of god it lasted as long as it did. The negitive mood that had begun to surround s_d was starting to become a problem as well. I went there to read about golden age hijinks and the Supercracktionary, not to bash comics for the sake of bashing. I hope something gets sorted out that works for everyone.
As it is, I do wish PAD would get rid of Layla. I really want to get into X-Factor but I can't stand that girl. Needs more Rictor if you ask me.
However,I feel like making icons instead. Probably Toad, actors, and oh-so-witty quotes. Probably not all at once.
Thing That Is Awesome- Meme!
The first five people to respond to this post will get something made by me! My choice. For you.
This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:
- I make no guarantees that you will like what I make!
- What I create will be just for you. (although if you wish, I can post it to the public, or the F-list. Your call.)
- It'll be done this year.
- You have no clue what it's going to be. It may be a story. It may be poetry. I may draw or paint something. I may bake you something and mail it to you. Who knows? Not you, that's for sure!
- I reserve the right to do something extremely strange.
I feel like drawing but not quite up to writing yet. Maybe I'll do some costume designs? I tried to redesign Bart's costume but it turned out too sketchy the proportions were pathetic. Also, I want/need Omen/Lilith fic. And Cyclone/Maxine fic, but that has little to do with fic inspiration and more to do with her being awesome.
Today was my first day of college. I'm deliriously pleased that the most stressful thing was finding my classes, and even then it was pretty chill. I even made a friend! Kinda! I dunno. Math is going to be painfully boring/easy, but I'll cope. So, college. So far so good. *nods*
I didn't post for New Years, mostly due to laziness. My resolution should be pretty obvious though. Maybe to lose a bit of weight as well? Just enough to lose my Freshman Fifteen, I think. Shouldn't be too hard, now that I'm not stuck in the house all day.
Fandom wise, I'm just haven't felt up to doing anything. The more I try to write Bart, the more he's coming out as a teenage girl and that's wrong, wrong, wrong. Hopefully school will wake my brain back up and I can function again.
I really, really need to buy my books for college. Hn.
I've never spammed my journal before, but please give a click? I'll try not to do this too often, it takes up too much space for my liking.
I have an idea for a fic involving the creation of a team with Bart, Jason, Kyle, Connor, and Joey. Team Lazarus or something. Needs
Anyway, I ship lots and lots of crack pairings, and a lot of them honestly, somethings like Connor/Kyle/Jason/Bart should never be canon. It's fun to pretend, but making it canon is too much.
But, there are a few pairings which would be wonderful as for real couples. For example, Boostle, Ricstar, maybe even Pipster. Mostly bromance couples are the ones I would actually like to see become a reality. The couples in which the fanfic ratio smut<plot are the ones that have a chance at actually seeing the light of day by writters.
