I woke up about two hours ago with a serious case of the unfocused jumpies. Why can't I be this alert during the day, you guys? ;_;

Ah well. Might as well get some writing done, as long as I'm up. I've made a start on my first kinkfest prompt. (This song, by the way. It's not really an Aeris-song, but parts of it pinged me for her post-Nibelheim.*)

*By the way, I've been pronouncing it "Ny-bel" rather than "Nee-bel" all this time. I heard Sephiroth pronounce it correctly in a CC clip, but it still sounds weird to me. Neeble neeble neeble. Heh. ...I think the lack of sleep is starting to catch up with me.

--- HOLY SHIT SPIDER just went rappelling right past my face. So much for sleeping. o_o

Proper update later, I promise.

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
It's just that I have a lot of pictures to upload, and my computer tends to make that process more of a pain in the ass than it needs to be. So I'm putting it off. -_-

In the meantime: SHINY. Hmm, costume refs to boot. Though looking at that I think I'm going to have to be verrrrry careful with my right hand, or make the cannon detachable. Otherwise I'm going to knock something over. XD ...Oh, take me, you sexy beast you.

EDIT: Because we were bored, 'Boots and I came up with a cast list for a live-action FF7. Here's the fruits of our labor, and I do mean fruits. )

Definitely need to figure out a simpler way to do this.

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Percyplush update: the legs are attached, after some hemming and hawing over what size to make his butt. Still to do: assemble the arms (about halfway done), make the scope, and add the face and other detailing. No further injuries have been sustained at this time.

I may knock off soon, though, 'cause apparently I am about to give birth. To a velociraptor.

Also, for those who were wondering: [info]deepbluesquee has made it safely to New York as of this afternoon.

EDIT: Okay, I lied. )

Halp. (Or: A List of Things That Are Swimming Around In My Brain.)

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
First: How cute is this? TRANSFORMING ROLLER, U GUYZ. (okay, they call him Rollar, but screw that.) I want to pick him up and hug him.

Second: Added another plotbunny to my hutch. I want to write what happened during Roddy's little playdate with the Decepticons in (lj)childofatlantis's and my round robot. (No, it wasn't sex. Exclusively.) >_> Look, I'm getting some really pretty images, all right? Leave me alone.

Third, related: I have got to get some priorities straightened out on my writing. If nothing else, if I don't get back in the saddle with TF/Mythbusters soon the series will end before I finish the damn thing.

Fourth, further to above: I may not have a choice right now. Fluffiroth-angst, it compels me.

Fifth, possibly affected by above: I could use a job. Barring that, a hug and someone telling me that I'm not doomed to live in my parents' basement forever.

Sixth, apropos of probably nothing: I first got this song (warning, Axel/Roxas shounen-ai pix set to it- look, just put it in another tab and listen) as a Jenova-to-Sephiroth theme, so if you think of it in that way the lyrics are really disturbing, but oh my lord it's such a beautiful song. If I had that in my head I'm not so sure I wouldn't follow it either.

Seventh, apropos of yesterday: I really need to stop accepting the free samples they wave at you in mall food courts. That's how they hook you. Five minutes later you're sitting down with a plateful of chicken and limp, under-flavored noodles and thinking, "welp, there goes another year of my life to cholesterol poisoning." God, chinese food is crack. -_-

Eighth, speaking of crack: there was a D.A.R.E. booth set up outside of Michael's today. I appreciate what they're trying to do and all, but guys, Hasbro got to me long before you did.

This is how social activists get their start, I think.

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
I had an interesting time today with my mom's family (cousin's being shipped to Afghanistan; put in a good word for him with your deity of choice if you've got a spare moment), but blogging about that will have to wait. My 'kick some ass' button is being pressed.

Brief overview and link roundup: a woman in the American military was brutally raped and murdered, and the investigation was halted and ruled a suicide. The mainstream media remains quiet on the subject.

Your Congressperson ought to be notified, but honestly I think it would be more productive to notify John Stewart.

I read this post first thing this morning, and it was like a shot of homicidal rage straight to the heart. Better than drugs, I swear. Anyway, it may have been the early hour or my tendency toward escapism, but I found myself thinking, "General Sephiroth would not stand for this shit." (Pre-Nibelheim Seph, obviously. Although I'd like to think crazy!Seph would dismember those responsible too.) And so, I wrote this. Changed the name of the lady in question, but basically it's the same situation picked up and dropped into Seph's lap.

I'm channeling my agression into art. )

Coupla ficlets.

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Ahem! First ficlet is a combination of several people's faults, including but not limited to [info]chibirisuchan and [info]seiberwing. FF7/Discworld crossover, Seph in the Library. No, not that Library, the other one.

...an organism that was apparently dead... )

And this one is entirely [info]eponaharper's fault, for challenging me to do a fic with the words 'exorcism injury' in it. This is what came to mind. ;) Transformers, mid-S3.

When he had a spare moment... )

June 26th, 2008

Huh.

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
Limp by Fiona Apple has a piano bit during the verses that sounds a lot like the unsettling music you hear when you're in the Shinra Tower. Just five notes, minor key (I think).

That's all. Carry on.

Because if I talk about school again I think I really will do something I'll regret.

From [info]wrongly_amused:

Comment with a sentence from one of my fanfictions. Without looking, I have to try and guess which fic of mine the sentence is from. If I fail, the challenger wins a drabble request. Post this in your own journal and let me challenge you!

Also, a bit of Fluffiroth, because he's been making cow eyes at me. In which Seph has been told that he has chocobo pox. )

EDIT: I caught part of a documentary on the evolution of sex in humans, and at the end credits it showed (of course, how else do you end these things) a sperm fertilizing an egg. "Thus begins a nine-month-long odyssey that ends in a miracle..." said the narrator. ...And then we cut to How It's Made, which basically takes you inside factories. AT FIRST I WAS LIEK o_O - AND THEN I LOL'D. Oh, Discovery Channel. I swear you do these ironic juxtapositions on purpose.

"On Broken Wings" - Prologue

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
I warned you all it was coming. You had plenty of time to defriend me.

"On Broken Wings" is a working title, though it'll probably stand as is considering how much I hate coming up with titles. XD It's kind of an aftermath-fixit if that makes any sense. Basic underlying assumption: aside from the whole "trying to kill everything" bit, Sephiroth's actually a decent guy. He just needs a chance to prove it.

Title: On Broken Wings
Author: ...um, that would be me. *hides*

Someone's imported the testify meme to IJ. My thread is here, because, as you all know, I am an attention whore. ^_^ So go participate, yes?

Also, Sephiroth sings about a subject that's very close to his heart.

If I was truly evil, canon wouldn't stop me...

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
...but I just gotta know. Who here's played Dirge of Cerberus? See, I've got me a sort of idea surrounding Hojo for the Fluffing Of Sephiroth project, but I heard he already Came Back To Life in DoC and I don't want to step on anyone's toes. So... how'd he get un-stabby-deathified? And what happened to him in the end?

Oh god I am such a fangirl.

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
There's an advert for Crisis Core in this month's issue of EGM. I very nearly had an orgasm on the spot, and I don't even have any intention of owning a PSP. It's just. Zack. *paws at page*

It has occurred to me that I am ridiculous.

Speaking of, I really need to tempt some people over to [info]ffvii_100 so that the Turks aren't winning by fifty million points every single damn weekend. I hadn't had any real bunnies spawn on me for this prompt, but it looks like I'm going to have to do one each for Avalanche and Soldier just so they're not shut out. *ties plushies on strings and dangles them* Heeeeere fangirl fangirl fangirl... >)

Just taking a break from making mom's birthday present.

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
...Of course I'm crocheting her something. When you Make Stuff of any sort, your mother expects you to spend some of that labor on her. I expect that if I was a math major, Mom would want me to build her an algorithm.

Anyway, skibbles:

Zack, Aeris, and umbrellas on the beach. One of Aeris's weapons in the game is a parasol, and apparently one of Zack's weapons in Crisis Core is a beach umbrella. CLEARLY IT WAS FATE.

In which Sephiroth's chocobo is Fearsome. Set in [info]ciceqi's Anthroverse. This skibble is part of a larger scene that dropped into my head unbidden the other day and involves Seph really, really wishing the stablemaster hadn't come to fetch him before Draugr pecked Hojo to death.

Zack, Aeris and Girl!Cloud, presumably post-coitus. This is fanart for this fanfic, also by [info]ciceqi. (Yes, I am a raving Coyofan, why do you ask?)

And finally, something from one of my fanworks. In which Sephiroth, experiencing his first viral sickness, has his first real talk with Cloud. ...Or something. (I really need to come up with a title for that arc one of these days. I can't keep calling it Fluffiroth forever.)

January 7th, 2008

I can has canon?

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
FFVII fans, question: post-AC, how much does the General Populace know about That Thing With Meteor and Sephiroth's involvment therein? Because I mean Seph didn't exactly tend to leave witnesses, and Shinra placed the blame on Avalanche... but Our Heroes sure as hell wouldn't keep it a secret, and someone's probably asked why Shinra isn't mad at the tree-hugging hippy ecoterrorists anymore. Would it be reasonable to think that most people still think of Sephiroth as a war hero who disappeared under mysterious circumstances? Or have underground sources ferreted out the truth, or did Reeve make a press release...? I'm debating whether Rufus would find Seph a useful symbol, among other things.

December 22nd, 2007

Um... merry Christmas? ^_^;;;;

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
I think I banged this out in the space of three days. Sephiroth wouldn't let me go until I finished it. You can put your sword away now, General Sephiroth sir...

This will make a hell of a lot more sense (relatively speaking) if you read [info]ciceqi's Tentacleverse first. Like, all of it. Trust me on this. (There's not that much, and you will not regret the time spent.)

Title: Cling
Author: [info]raisedbymoogles, to my eternal shame, I'm sure. ^_^;;;
Series: Final Fantasy 7, Tentacleverse, crack AU
Characters: Sephiroth/Cloud with hints of Sephiroth/Zack, Rufus
Rating: T for tentacles.
Word Count: 1877. *faints* haet u, Sephiroth.

If there had been anyone else there, except Zack... )

Shoes!

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
For varied reasons, it's hard for me to find shoes. Mostly it's that I'm picky about what I spend my mom's money on - most shoes come across to me as boring, ugly, or like they wouldn't be out of place in [info]dragovianknight's collection of torture implements. (I have an antagonistic relationship with heels, which is another reason why I have a hard time with shoes. Girls, answer this for me - why, in Primus' name, do you feel the need to winch up your heels to unnatural angles?) Then, assuming I find something I like, I still have to deal with my monster feet. My feet are flat and wide, and hover somewhere in the 8.5-9 area, so finding a shoe that will accomodate all that is an adventure all in itself. Invariably the shoe I like best will pinch my poor toes, or have a bump to support the arch I don't have, or slip off my heel. Shopping for shoes, especially once I hit my growth spurt (in my case it was more of a halfhearted lurch, except where my feet were concerned), has always been an exercise in frustration.

So imagine my glee when I come home from Shopping today with not one but two pairs of shoes I absolutely adore. ^_^

Brown shoe with pink and purple and white... stuff all over it. Fits like a glove and looks adorable with tights. (I may be starting a love affair with tights. They're just so warm and cozy..!)

The black shoe. Basic, but not boring; pretty, but not froofy. These are the things that make a moogle's feet happy. ^_^

...And did I mention they were both on sale? :D (Gods, I'm such a girl sometimes.)

In other news, tomorrow is the last day of class for the quarter, and it will be spent Presenting things. While I don't enjoy presenting, at least I don't have to actually do anything either. HUZZAH. I'll probably spend break (when I'm not at Ohayocon, or allowing my Relations to fuss over me in Illinois) writing Sephfic. He's been poking around my brain and asking all sorts of questions. I think he's making up for not having much of a childhood... *worried look*

Not porn, but...
