Icon meme via [personal profile] evewithanapple

1. Reply to this post with PIXELS!, and I will pick five of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.


I like talking about icons, okay )

Made it back from the cottage alive.
Here is a list of the good things about the trip, so I don't just focus on the bad. Less said about the bad, the better, really. )
Unrelated to vacation: Lufwood made me start rereading the Edge Chronicles and now I have a stupid amount of feelings. Pretty sure I read the first books before they were released in the States at all, and there was no English-speaking fandom. Now there is one, small of course. But (probably because all my fannishness was conducted in isolation, with IRL friends) my opinions and ships seem to be vastly different to everybody else's. Why do I never seem to want fic of things there actually is fic of?

So last night, as is traditional, myself, [livejournal.com profile] chavamara, and [livejournal.com profile] lufwood_emilius watched as many movies as physically possible. This year we reached our goal of staying up 'til seven in the morning (last year we only made it to about three, because we were drinking. This year we were just drinking tea, so it all worked out.)
Blather about the things we saw )

OH HELLO PANIC ATTACK ABOUT THE MAYORAL ELECTION AND ALSO FRENCH HOMEWORK PLEASE GO AWAY NOW YOU ARE NOT HELPFUL.

Meme, while I calm myself down: Comment and I will pick a bunch of your lj/dw interests for you to explain/talk about!

[personal profile] feverbeats gave me crazy former superheroes, cunning use of threesomes, fictional musicians, house/amber/wilson, sparkly androids, splorangeade. )

HELLO INTERNET!

A few weeks ago I was like "Rargh I am bored I want school to start!"

And then right when school was about to start I got sick. Because my body loves me just that much. So I've spent the last week and a half with approximately zero energy and I already feel like I'm drowning in school. And now I have taken allergy pills and I am going to go to bed, but before I do that I am going to do this pairings meme, because it doesn't require much brain-effort at all and I feel like I've been neglecting DW/LJ in favour of Tumblr. (Which is a lot easier to do when you're sick.) Included are things I have had Feelings and/or Opinions about in the last week or so. Mostly DC, because fandom of my heart.

Exceedingly pointless. )

I am trying to get into the habit of posting more, instead of being like "Oh, you have nothing interesting to say, shut up until you have some pictures scanned or something, you useless boring human." Shut up, brain, this is not a helpful train of thought to have!

What have I been doing lately? Well, for one, Fan Expo happened and it was awesome. [livejournal.com profile] chavamara bought me the Eggplant Batgirl figure! I convinced Lufwood to buy Xena comics! I bought a Toon-Timmy shirt and a Red Hood shirt, so I can be Even-Robins-tastic, which is totally a real word! And I finally got the missing pieces of Villains United, so now I have every Secret Six comic. So then uh, I reread the series straight through. (Of course I did.) And let me tell you, it caught my brain something terrible, as anyone who has talked to me in the last week or so has probably noticed! I feel like more people need to be reading this book. More people I know, I mean. And/or more people willing to create fanworks.

Not that I haven't done that; I think it's a result of my brain rebelling against working in childcare. I have several pages of various not-child-friendly-at-all Secret Six sketches in the back of my sketchbook, and I sort of started a ridiculous project along the lines of [livejournal.com profile] amandeo's Tiny Secret Six combined with that All-Ages Watchmen thing that was floating around last year. It is fucking hard to translate Secret Six stories into hilariously kid-friendly versions, I don't know why I do these things to myself.

While looking for this year's Fan Expo pictures to post I instead found pics from last year. Which I don't think I ever posted. So I put them on my tumblr. (I have a tumblr now! This is Exciting News, okay, and you all care very much.) So if you want to see me be Sally Jupiter, that is the place to go! I will get this year's pictures off Lufwood uh, at some point soon, and hopefully not post them a year late this time.

Today's question was supposed to be "favourite romance" and I still have no idea how I plan on answering that.

HOWEVER, I have just had an Idea that needs to get spilled out here in hope that someone who can write takes a shine to it.

LoM/A2A, Even Robins Style )

Yay, got.... 20% of the way through without missing a day! Better than I had expected, okay.

Favourite Nonmasked Character

The Entire Gotham City MCU is not an acceptable answer, self. )

Yesterday [livejournal.com profile] colonize had the BEST ADVENTURE. My mom works at a daycare, so she has a membership at a local toystore, where we've been saving up points for basically the last twenty years. We cashed those points in for $75 in store credit, which for some reason you had to spend all in one go. .....So I now have $75 worth of Playmobil that I hadn't had before! Including Evil Mermaid Queen (who is for some reason making the 4chan logo face) and her Purple Barbarian Soldiers (seriously they were exactly the same colour as the Queen, it was sort of perfect). They were engaged in a bitter feud with King Culturally-Confused his champion, Sir Glowing Chainsaw-Gun-Lance, and their allies, Barbarians who carry enough weapons for their wolves to be armed too.

...I FUCKING LOVE PLAYMOBIL, THE END. (There is a point to buying these, I promise, there are Things that will come of it at some point. Possiblymaybe.)

ALSO! Yesterday NEW BIRDS OF PREY CAME OUT, have I mentioned that they are my FAVOURITE? I just. HOW SO AWESOME? Here, I'll just link to the last time I gushed about BoP. I'm tempted to do a page-by-page review at some point, inspired by [personal profile] nevermore999's Super Mega Batgirl Reviews.

But I can't do that now, or this weekend. Because! This weekend! My mom and [livejournal.com profile] lufwood_emilius and I are going to the STEAMPUNK WORLD FAIR. WE LEAVE TOMORROW MORNING. THIS IS GONNA BE SO AWESOME :D. Expect pictures!

I have not forgotten to do this! It's just that the beginning of May is stupid-busy, what with Free Comic Book Day and all.

A Wizard of Mars, Diane Duane )Supergirls: Fashion, Feminism, Fantasy and the History of Comic Book Heroines, Mike Madrid )Callahan's Lady, Spider Robinson )
Not on the list due to Paypal problems that can't be resolved until my mom gets back from B.C.: The Wolf House: Fair Game, Mary Borsellino.

And now, for something completely different: The meme where people pick icons for you to talk about is going around!
Via [livejournal.com profile] mrs_laugh_track:
four icons + blather )So, yeah! Comment if you want me to pick some icons!

1. Post about something that made you happy today, even if it's just a small thing.
2. Do this every day for eight days without fail.


ROSH HASHANNAH IS MY FAVOURITEST HOLIDAY, YOU GUYS. Happy New Year! )

(This is the last day I have free until after Fan Expo. So I need to get this stuff out before I forget about it in the haze of working-at-the-convention.)

Cut for blather. )
