I realized, this morning after talking with someone, that I don't really have a welcome or introduction post where people can comment and ask to friend me or just talk to me in general. So I am now creating one... Kind of... lol.

Hello to all of my readers and visitors. Here you will find the archives of my writings, both fanfiction and a few original pieces. I love all of my comments and don't mind any bit of constructive criticism if you don't like or don't understand something. Please feel free to speak your mind as long as you are respectful of the fact that I have my own opinions and ideas as well. Anything that I post on here that you can read I fully expect people to comment on so if you can read it then don't worry about feeling bad about commenting on it!

You can find my masterlist of fiction here. Feel free to browse and explore, read and comment until your heart is content.

I'm also on Twitter with mostly nonsensical things.... feel free to follow me!

I post fanfiction news and snippets, along with a lot of randomness on my Tumblr. Jump over there if you would like to keep up to date on that and feel free to follow!

I also hang on on AIM most days and I'm more then willing to chat with anyone who wants to drop me a line at just about anything. I'm karinachildoG@aol.com if you would like to message me.

I'm not certain what else to say in this, lol. If you have any comments, questions, or strange noises to make feel free to shoot me a comment or a message. I'm friendly and I don't bite, most days. ^_^

Feel free to comment here with any

So I was chatting online with one of my friends and we started talking about accents and words that we use because we live in different parts of the world. From there we decided to do a voice meme thing and she found one that seemed sort of fun. So I did it... *dies of embarissment* All the pics in this vid are ones that I took because I was too lazy to get my webcam hooked up and I wanted to give you all something to look at while listening to me go on and on lol....

Here is the orginal script I followed:

"Your name and username.

Where you’re from.

Pronounce the following words: Aunt, Roof, Route, Theater, Iron, Salmon, Caramel, Fire, Water, New Orleans, Pecan, Both, Again, Probably, Alabama, Lawyer, Coupon, Mayonnaise, Pajamas, Caught, Naturally, Aluminium, GIF, Tumblr, Crackerjack, Doorknob, Envelope, GPOY.

What is it called when you throw toilet paper on a house?

What is a bubbly carbonated drink called?

What do you call gym shoes?

What do you call your grandparents?

What do you call the wheeled contraption in which you carry groceries at the supermarket?

What is the thing you change the TV channel with?

Choose a book and read a passage to it.

Do you think you have an accent?

Be a wizard or a vampire?

Do you know anyone on Tumblr in real life?"

So I stole this from [livejournal.com profile] saanrio and have decided to work on the periodically when the mood strikes me. So to that end this post will be updated with them whenever I get the chance to do so. Enjoy!

Step 1: Write down the names of 10 characters.

Step 2: Write a fic of [at least] twenty five words for every prompt, using the characters determined by the numbers. DO NOT read the prompts before you do step 1.

Well first things first. [livejournal.com profile] saanrio did this voice meme and I wanted to too... do I did. lol. You can download my recording below. It is a wma file because of the way I recorded it but drag and drop to itunes and it will play there too if you want (after it converts of course).

My Voice Meme

And for all of you visual people, here is the list of questions:

1) What's your name?
2) How old are you?
3) Where are you from? Are you living there right now?
4) What's the time?
5) Is it cold where you are?
6) What are you wearing?
7) What was the last thing you listened to?
8) What was the last thing you ate?
9) What was the last thing you watched on TV?
10) What's your favorite TV show? Why?
11) Quick! Find a book, or something with text on it! Flip to a random page and read some of it! GO!
12) What was the last movie you saw? How was it?
13) Do YOU think you have an accent? Talk about that.

Alright now that that is out of the way... it is time for an explanation I feel. So as some of you may know, I have been student teaching this semester (late August to mid December). Most teachers in public High Schools teach the same class a couple times a day so they only have two or three different classes. I am in a private school where I teach six different classes everyday. So every week I have to plan thirty different lessons. It is a lot of work and now that I am teaching full time I have next to no time. However I knew this was coming.

My original plan was to finish Of Flesh, Fur, and Fang before or shortly after student teaching started and then go on a semi-hiatus until December. Several things popped up unexpectedly, including a death in the family that made that impossible. So now I'm stuck with little time and you are all left with no current conclusion to the story.

However there is hope! I have written the next chapter (I found some time this weekend that I could use for that) but I'm not giving it to you yet. It could be a month before you get the one after and I don't want to string you along month by month. So when I have the story complete, which will only take a few more chapters, I will begin to post them. In the mean time I may post something small and random if I have the time to write anything but I honestly doubt that I will. Thanks so much everyone who has been so understanding about all of this already. I love writing for all of you and I will finish this story and continue writing, don't worry about that. ^^;

Meme Time!

* Leave me a comment saying "Not tonight, darling, I have a headache."
* 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.

1) When did you start writing?
Well I technically started writing when I was pretty little. I have a notebook that is full cover to cover of some strange story involving Dragon Ball Z, Sailor Moon, Card Captor Sakura and some strange mix of X-men in addition to my own original female lead, that I think I wrote in the third or fourth grade. I also have a small notebook full of poems and songs lyrics that I created throughout upper middle and high school (I think they are pretty aweful but at the time I thought they were fantastic...)

The first fanfiction I ever posted for public consumption was one for the anime Yu Yu Hakusho that was posted in late 2006. (It and a few other early ones can be found here) After that I wrote a bit more fanfiction and tried my hand at an original or two (the attempts that I showed to the public can be found here) The first time that I have truly written something I was proud of was when I started the Super Junior Journals series this summer and moved into From the Soul to the Song. I can't believe how much I have written since that.

2) How old are you?
I am 22 as of Feb 2. ^_^

3) Where do you see yourself in five or ten years?
There are several answers to that question. My passion is teaching. In five to ten years I will be graduated (hopefully that is true in only one year ^^;) and I hope to have a steady teaching position teaching, preferably, high school math. I would also love to go to South Korea and teach English as a second language but I don't know if I will get to do that or not.

I would also like to be married by that time and have started my own family. At the same time I would love to keep writing in my free time and maybe even get something published eventually. Who knows.

4) What is your favorite food?
I'm going to have to go with pizza on this one. I love the stuff and could eat it all the time. Although I am also a big fan of pastas and food from different nationalities most recently Korean (kimchi is amazing and so are the rice cakes). I'm not too picky on what I eat for the most part.

5) What is the most embarrassing thing that ever happened to you?
Oh land... I think I am going to have to go with an event that happened in the fifth grade.

My classroom was set up with tables and two kids on each side of the table. The afternoons were always devoted to work time, where we could work on whatever it was that had been assigned that day. My table was made up of all of my very best female friends at the time and we were working hard, or as hard as a bunch of fifth graders work at one in the afternoon, on our work.

My friends started talking about boys they liked and they asked me if there were any I like. I said yes. They, of course, didn't let it go just at that. They wanted a name. I told them his name was Mark, a boy that happened to be in our class. There were giggles all around and then we went back to our work.

In our classroom there was a bench right under the window that we could sit on. Mark was sitting there working with some of his friends. After a few minutes, one of my friends got up, walked over, and sat down by him. The next thing I know I hear her telling him that I liked him. He looked at me and then literally fell over sideways on the bench. I was so embarrassed I wanted to melt into the floor.

Although five minutes later he moved over and worked by me (thinking back on it, it might have had something to do with the fact that I was one of the smarter kids in the class so he could cheat off my answers and nothing to do with the fact that I liked him) and we built a wall around the two of us by standing a bunch of textbooks up side by side. So I guess it turned out well enough.

Association Meme: Comment to this post and I will give you 5 subjects/things I associate you with. Then post this in your LJ and elaborate on the subjects given.

I wanted to see what I would get so I comment on [livejournal.com profile] 2metaldog. Here's what she gave me! (It's only three because I've only been commenting on her journal entries for a bit now. Pretty surprising being as that is the only form of communication we have.)

Meme! )

A Meme

kat_elric: (Default)
Well since I responded to this on [livejournal.com profile] 2metaldog journal, I'm posting it here. So the first five people to respond to this will get something made by me. I would like it if you had an idea of what you wanted. I have the sort of things I can do at my DA. I also take requests for writing a fic. If you want a surprise at least give me a solid list of favorites.

Follow this link

Anything crafty on there I can make. I can also paint various sized boxes with whatever is requested. Keep in mind that my free hand drawing looks cartoonish at best, but I'm not to shabby with a pattern.

Please don't post addresses. I'll e-mail you for those later


*giggles* I wonder if I even have five people who regularly read this... *glares at mental muses* And no you all do not count!

Ready! Go!
