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?"

I changed my layout! Yay! Ok really I was just getting bored of my old one so I went looking for a change. I really liked the look of this one and it kinda reminds me of the sea. I'm still on the fence about the quote in the header and I might take it back out, but I like the rest of the layout. *makes cheering noises*

So I promise I haven't died, I'm just busy working on stuff and job hunting (so not exciting there...) but I think the next chapter will go up tonight! Hopefully I can get some more writing done tonight too... *glances at muses who are being stubborn*

Well I'm off to be uh... productive?

So I just re-read Of Blood and Brooms to refresh my memory on the story.

When I finished happily reading along 1st thought: "Oh this is really good, I hope the author continues this cause I wanna know what happens next."

2nd thought: "..... I am the author... I know what happens next..."

3rd thought: *listens to muses laugh at her*

In other news I am still alive!

In other, other news my laptop has decided to get this random white static at random times across the bottom 1/3 of my screen. I have reason to believe that this means the connection of my screen to my laptop is beginning to short out or something along those lines. Time to call dell and have them come fix this baby.

I really shouldn't do this because I have so much to do, but I'm going to do another drabble request post because I feel like writing some fluff and everything I'm supposed to be writing might not be very fluffy. lol

So here is what I need from you.

Group: (any)
Pairing: (any)
Song: (any song that you would like me to base it on/get the feeling from while writing)
Kiss type: (examples: First kiss, wake up kiss, morning kiss, ect.)
Universe: (Please limit to band fics or a universe that I have already created)
Any other ideas:

No limit on how many can request, but it is first come first written and I make no promises to be able to write all of your requests, especially if you are like number fifteen! lo
kat_elric: (hehe hey guys - Aladin)
There are a few things I have to work on that I really need to focus on darn it! Muses work with me! You play nicely and then we can do what you want.... please? I'll give you cookies?

Has anyone else gotten comments recently that are completely spam? I keep reporting and deleting them but they keep showing up for all sorts of things (like a Russian one for an apartment in Petersberg). I have no idea where they are coming from but I really would wish they would stop. The comments of my readers are important to me and the random spam thing is irritating...

I also just watched the 5Dolls MV... I love CO-ED and I'm excited for 5Dolls, but I'm not sure how I feel about Jay being back in my Kpop (he guest stars in their new video). I think it would be different if what happened didn't feel so wrong to me... I mean maybe it is just me, but after seeing the reactions of 2PM to his leaving and all the emotion and what not I'm not so sure. And if whatever you have done is bad enough that you have to leave your company (and the company lets you go) the why the heck do you just pop back up in the country to do it all over again? Maybe it is just me but I wouldn't mind if he did stuff in America, I just feel like he has lost the privilege of being in Kpop.

Now that I have said my peace, off to get something done! (I hope....)
kat_elric: (oooh wipers - Micky)
So in light of the "Blizzard of 2011" or the SNOWPOCALYPSE as some have taken to calling it on facebook (or maybe just because I am really bored), I am doing a small drabble request thing again!

The first 5 people to comment with their request can have a short piece written by me (and I swear one of these times I will fulfill all five... ^^;) just fill out the following:

Pairing (Group): can be anything but if I don't know them I can't promise great results ^^;
Word: pick a word that you would like involved in some way shape or form.
Use of Snow: Snow has to be used somehow, but you decide how, be creative!
Universe: any universe I have created, the real one, or one you just made up are all fair game.
Anything Else:

Entering!

A Few Items

Ok gang here's the deal. I'm sure a few of you have heard about the whole facebook thing by now. I was out for a couple of days so I'm just hearing about it now. Since it hasn't gone away, I have decided to address the issue.

I don't like it and think it is an aweful idea, because of this I have to please ask you as readers to do a couple of things for me. Please never ever use the little facebook twitter repost chioce in your comment if it is a friend locked entry of mine. I'm not real clear on the details of how much will be reposted, but clearly if things are friend locked I want them that way, including the comments (yes even the ones you make to me). I don't typically lock very many entries so this shouldn't be too much of an issue. Also if it is a regular non story post, please ask before you cross post a comment. Most I won't care about, but since I do sometimes share a bit about my personal life with you, I would rather that not be plastered anywhere but here (yes I understand it is the internet and all that jazz). Finally if you would like to cross post comments on my fiction, knock yourself out, just make sure that proper credit is given for any quoting or anything. If you are lost on what I am saying you can go here and read what has been done to see for yourself, and of course lodge a complaint.

Ok moving on...


Sorry to all of my faithful readers that I have posted nothing on the fiction front for what is two weeks now I believe. I meant to have some time before college started back up to really get some writing done, but then my migraines started flaring up and I got sick and super busy. So I have nothing for you and I do not want to make any promises as to when I will again. All I will tell you is soon (I have three pages of the next chapter written...). No matter what happens, I do not plan to abandon my story/universes and will get to them as time provides. Thank you so much for being patient and it makes me very glad to know that I haven't had problems like some authors who get readers who message them with demands for the next chapters (not that I would mind messages, but demands would be ignored, lol).

And this weekend looks like it is going to be just me and my apartment and my screwy internet so everybody keep your fingers crossed!

A new look

Aw my journal just got a make over! I like it!

I'm not dead all my faithful readers, I promise. There was a bit of an injury in my house and I have been busy with that. In addition to that I also joined a role play, something which I haven't been able to do since my best friend of ten years decided she wanted nothing more to do with me. Role playing used to be something we did together and it feels fantastic to be able to do it again, so my muses were distracted there.

But have no fear! A new chapter will be up tomorrow! I was waiting to hear back from my beta with it so that hopefully it wouldn't have as many errors this time. lol.

I had to do it guys!

Rules:

01. Anyone who looks at this entry has to post this meme and their current wallpaper at their LiveJournal.
02. Explain in five sentences why you're using that wallpaper!
03. Don't change your wallpaper before doing it! The point is to see what you had on!


(I'm adding an 'this is optional clause' because I don't want to tell anyone they have to do it. ^^;)


(click image for bigger size)

Reasons
1. I thought it was horribly romantically cute what he did in the video.
2. It reminds me to keep praying for them and they are people too with real hearts and real feelings.
3. It's Leeteuk, enough said.
4. While I don't particularly like pink, it is all pastel and cute and makes me feel squishy inside.
5. I'm to lazy to change it...

(And yes I have way to many desktop icons... This is actually a fairly clean day for my desktop, lol)

So I'm in the mood to do a little writing and I have been listing to Enchanted and reading a book that is fairy tale based so here is something to amuse myself!

Here's the deal. Anyone can comment with a request. The only requirments are that it be based in some sort of fairy tale and no requests for agnst (not that I don't write that, just feeling like fluffier things at the moment). Then I will try to turn around and give you something that is at least 100 words length for whatever you request. So here is an outline of what I would like from you.

Characters/Pariing:
Preferred Rating:
Fairy Tale: (I'm talking anything from Disney to the strange. Although if it is too out there I might have to look it up.)
Specific ideas:
Anything Else:

So there you have it people on my friend list. Go crazy! Anyone can request I don't mind who you are and if I have never heard from you before. The quicker you do the faster I write it. ^_^

Have fun!

Completed Stories:

Tale One: The Little Merman
Tale Two: The Sleeping... Beauty

So I am now typing to you all from my brand new shiny desk... Ok so it isn't so new, and it isn't so shiny but it is a new addition to my bedroom, freshly moved up from the basement where I used to make my residence (It was sort of like living in a cave... Trust me.) This is the latest move in a plan to hopefully allow me to get more writing done. So now I have the desk, the notes scattered all over, the laptop open, drawers of writing utensils I won't need, and glasses without lenses to make me feel like a writer. Hopefully with all of them I can actually write something *sigh*.

Oh and to any readers who are reading this, Of Flesh, Fur, and Fang is going on hold until I have Dragon Prince written. I find that at the moment I want to throw Dragon Prince out the window in my excitement for my other work. To avoid this issues I am putting the other work on hold momentarily. Don't worry they will both be done and Dragon Prince is so close. I hope to really write this week because I have nothing to do all week. Wish me luck!




And I would like you all to know that kpop has ruined my spelling. Above, every time I tried to type shiny I would type shinee and then have to backspace... ^^;

So if any of my dear readers would like to know why exactly it is that I seem to take a bit longer at times to get things done, then this is the post for you. Besides the normal everyday happenings of life that can sometimes have an effect on productivity, there are the added side things that tend to take productivity and throw it out the window.

Tonight's Adventure )













So you can all sort of see just what it is that gets me distracted more times then not... Randomness... Now back to your regularly scheduled programing. I have some Tiny muses to attend to. *head desk*
kat_elric: (Is the oven on?)
So I am listening to MBLAQ's new song and I am very confused. One of the lyrics is:

"Give it to my Y. Listen to my Y."


My question is, what the heck is their Y? Are we talking like a Y chromosome? Or are we talking Y as in 'why' so a reason or something. Are we talking about something else entirely? I have no idea! Any one else have any thoughts on this.




It is a random post night tonight me thinks. ^_^

I love living in Michigan. The weather here is so wacky. Last week I was freezing and wearing sweaters because it was in the fifties. Today I can't wear few enough clothes because it was in the mid to upper 80s today. Too bad my family doesn't come from a nudist colony or something, although I have to imagine in one of those there are some interesting sunburns.... No muses, you may not create a fic without clothing. We are not going there no matter how much you beg...

In other news I signed up for a 500 theme challenge today with my kpop groups. I'm going to try and tackle it. I'm thinking that I will create sort of a science fiction universe that will be only used for those 500 things. That will mean a whole lot of spin off stories. I'm kinda excited, and so are my muses. I have told them they just get to hold onto this idea for now. We have to finish Dragon Prince, Of Flesh, Fur, and Fang, and start working on the second From the Soul to the Song book before we go there.

Ok I'll stop procrastinating and go back to editing the next chapter of Dragon Prince so I can post it. *skips off*

Wow... JYP you have done it again. I am so very impressed with 2PM's new single. If I was basing it on sound alone, I love it for just that. There isn't a song on it that I don't like. But more then that I love the message of the songs. Just the songs themselves have a positive keep going message to them, but add to them the events that have happened recently in 2PM's past, makes me love them even more.

Don't Stop, Can't Stop (which is also the name of their album) has a powerful message. The song is about people trying to push someone down and that person declaring that they will not and cannot not give up. That they will keep pushing forward. To me this is 2PM direct statement to those supposed "hottest" fans that have been doing so much to hurt them and saying that they will fail.

Then they certainly impressed me with their track Without U. The song is about someone who has left and abandon all of the love that there was, but that the singer of the song will be ok without that person there. This is a powerful track and to me it shows exactly how 2PM had to have been feeling with their leader leaving them. Some of the lyrics just strike me as something that they had to have felt at the time as I can only imagine the confusion and anger they had to feel. Like:
"Why did you do this to me, why?
Why did you do this to me, make me cry
Was it worth it to throw away everything we had
Was it really worth it
The time we spent together
And the time we could have spent together
Don't you regret it, doesn't it matter to you
Right now you--Are you OK without me?"


And then the video. Talk about symbolic. I'm going to pull out my literary minor self for the next few minutes and give you my take on the meaning of the video, you have all been warned. So the video is set in a dark and somewhat destroyed area. Everything in is ruins around the six boys, symbolizing the chaos and pure darkness that has been surrounding the boys for the past little while. Yet there is light. In the first few opening scenes each of the boys are bathed in light. This isn't just for the "oh the camera has to be able to see them" effect. They are purposefully illuminated in sharp contrast to the darkness and chaos.

Now the rain falling through the whole thing. Simple fangirl moment says that good looking boys in sleeveless shirts is good, but good looking boys in sleeveless shirts while being soaked with water, even better. Beyond the simple yum factor, water is one of the first symbols that any student learns if they are studying symbolism. It means rebirth or a re-newness of life or of being. I think that is a fairly fitting message for them at this time since this is pretty much their for sure continuation as six. However the muddy water scenes can't be ignored. I feel that they are there to show that they are not starting fresh. There is all this muck, mud, sweat, blood, and tears that they will have to fight through. It isn't like they are starting over as a new group, they are pushing forward as a group minus one person that they will never forget and that means they have a lot of much to wade through (I'm thinking primarily of some of their fans who are now against them as six).

I could go into a lot more but I think I will just stop there. I cannot wait to see them perform on a music show so that we will be able to see the full dance. I am secretly hoping they will perform with a wet stage so they can be soaking wet while doing it...

For anyone who is curious and wants to hear the songs and see the translations, I found them here.
