Deconstruction: The Subversive Power Of Slash Fanfic

Specifically, the part about "Gandalf's Daughter". I've decided to no longer be ashamed about my impulse to create a self-insert character for every damn series I watch (or read or play for that matter).

Somehow, and against all common sense, I failed to anticipate this.

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
You guys. You guys. Look what was in Kup's Formspring inbox when I came home this evening.



Upon reflection, this should not be surprising, but - ahahahaha. Oh god. This is a treasure. I am having hysterics right now.

I'm also wrestling with temptation - I know I should just delete it, but oh god Kup's reaction to this I don't even. *hands over mouth, squeakynoises*

(This makes up for a stressful evening at work, let me tell you internets.)

EDIT: Well, I gave in to my sinful nature and answered it. XD Over here if you want to see.

Against my better judgement...

...and stemming directly from this fic, I made a Formspring. For Kup. To give sex advice.

How is this my life, Internet?

Ask Professor Kup - has a few questions on it already. If I feel like it later, I'll expand some of the answers and make an LJ/post them on tf_g1_s3. Or something. I'm kinda playing this whole thing by ear.

AAAAAA

So I've been a little bit absent from things on the Internet lately because Lima Beads* was holding an Easter egg hunt. There were 100 eggs cleverly hidden all throughout the site, and if I found 75 of them I would win a pendant I'd been lusting after, an Object Of Long-Cherished Desire. Cue moogle going "woohoo!" and then running face-first into the Law of Diminishing Returns.

The first ten? Easy. The first twenty-five? A breeze. Fifty? Just a little sweat, no big deal. Then I hit about the sixty mark and things... took... a turn. I was averaging an egg every twelve hours of constant clicking. Carpal tunnel was setting in. I started seeing eggs every time I blinked. I'm pretty sure I started hallucinating eggs on my dock. I nearly gave up several times, but those damn eggs sucked me right back in just when I thought I'd looked everywhere I could possibly look. Finally, four hours before the Great Egg Hunt Of Lovecraftian Horror was to end... I found egg number 75. I promptly claimed my Lust Object and clicked out of that son of a bitch, Never To Return. Also feeling quite proud of myself - I may have half killed myself in the attempt, but I found those eggs all on my own, no hints, no nothin'. I was invincible.

In my inbox this morning was an ad for another bead site. "Come participate in our Easter Egg Hunt!" it said.

......

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

(Screw the warm glow of accomplishment. Next year I'm cheating and conscripting several friends to help.)


*Not linking to them because I hate them right now.

I would swear off porn for a piece of the grape focaccia.

Add to Memories Tell a Friend
You guys. THIS SITE. It is food porn. Nay, it is food erotica. I discovered it when I was looking for something interesting to do with pears (found something) and now I can't look away. Zomgnomnom.

I'll let you know how the pears come out.

Wanna get pissed off? Read all about dA maintainers being proudly transphobic and treating a non-gender-binary person with egregious disrespect.

Ranting, behind a cut. )

So, yes. Looking for another art site. I'm trying Artician, but it's kind of glitchy.

I am still five and do not know what I want to be when I grow up. I watched six hours of stand-up yesterday and decided I wanted to be a comedian. Then I mainlined nerdcore all afternoon and now I'm mentally composing a rap ode to Insecticomics. (Rap needs moar boobs, amirite? WORD.)

Agh, I don't have time for this! I have to go be a costume designer. (Or maybe an architect, all things considered.)

Next time you go to a bar, ask for a Galvatron for me. Because God knows I couldn't drink that. XD (Kind of wish I could, though!)

I don't suppose asking for a virgin version would work. ^_^;;;

(look, I found (lj)vani_nessa on there, okay? And I haven't heard from her in aaaaaages and I miss her like crazy. THAT IS THE ONLY REASON.)

Feel free to add me, but don't expect much more than silliness.

Working on WfC icons. And... other things.

I've been asked to pass this along: [info]helptheproject. It's a fandom charity auction along the lines of [info]helphaiti, only the proceeds go to an afterschool arts and academics program in Los Angeles called the Virginia Avenue Project. Looks pretty cool. ...I kind of love fandom.

I'm a week from turning 25, and I still feel like I have no control over my own life. Case in point: despite my misgivings I'm getting down the names of some colleges to apply to. I'm absolutely dreading going back to school,* but I just don't have any other options.

*little black raincloud over mooglehead*

I was actually researching degrees in game art, because as long as I have to go back, I might as well go for something really cool, right? :D ...Apparently that was a bad idea. Dear readers, my search took me into the dark and slimy underbelly of the American educational system, where degree factories tart themselves up with glittery programs and beckon the unwary into dark alleys. I'm not sure I still have my wallet.

True to form, it took me most of the afternoon and well into evening before I thought to look up some actual job openings in the field. Turns out nobody in the gaming industry's actually looking for someone with a 'game design' degree. Art, yes, animation, yes, architecture even. But a holder of a game design degree from Art Institutes may as well tattoo 'sucker' on her forehead.

...Yes, I'm aware of the irony, considering where I got my associate's. Don't think I'm not kicking myself over that.



*Except in the case of the school in England, but that's my 'infinitesimal chance' school - I'd have to sell a kidney to pay for it.
