Hello! This journal is kind of, sort of friends only. Some entries will remain open, such as posts related to fandom, but the entries about my real life won't be available to the public. If you want to friend me, please comment here or anywhere else on my journal and let me know. I'll be happy to friend you back.

I decided to stop plugging [ profile] pwnworks up with my favorite quotes from, well, anywhere, and decided to post them all in a single post instead.

If you guys have any quotes you like, for whatever reasons, feel free to hit this up!

Since it's impossible to do a mass delete and start clean, I went and made a new blog.

[personal profile] pastryqueen

The name is a little on the 'meh' side, but whatevs. It's still cute.

Feel free to follow me if you wish. If not, that's alright, too!

So, does anyone follow any writing communities on this site, or know where to find writing exercises and memes?

Life's a little boring, otherwise. I do need to use this journal more often, and I've become a bit unsociable, so um. Time to change that! Want to do a silly fandom meme? :D

Name a fandom you know I know and I'll tell you

1. The first character I first fell in love with
2. The character I never expected to love as much as I do now
3. The character everyone else loves that I don’t
4. The character I love that everyone else hates
5. The character I used to love but don’t any longer
6. The character I would totally smooch
7. The character I’d want to be like
8. The character I’d slap
9. A pairing that I love
10. A pairing that I despise

If you don't know my fandoms, feel free to take a look here!

I'm so depressed/angry about the ending of Mass Effect 3 that I decided to...put together a playlist of all of the romance songs (all of which are either sweet or sad) I enjoy. Makes total sense, right?

These songs in particular have been played or at least in the back of my mind while I've been playing with these new characters and thinking about their relationships with each other, or their relationships with Sev's characters.

Now, obviously I'm not putting up download links, mainly because I'm not going to chance it after all of the SOPA bullshit. If you can't view it due to being in a different region, though, I'll see what I can do.

songs and lyrics! )

Website Blocking

The government can order service providers to block websites for infringing links posted by any users.

Risk of Jail for Ordinary Users

It becomes a felony with a potential 5 year sentence to stream a copyrighted work that would cost more than $2,500 to license, even if you are a totally noncommercial user, e.g. singing a pop song on Facebook.

Chaos for the Internet

Thousands of sites that are legal under the DMCA would face new legal threats. People trying to keep the internet more secure wouldn't be able to rely on the integrity of the DNS system.

“We support the bill’s stated goals — providing additional enforcement tools to combat foreign ‘rogue’ websites that are dedicated to copyright infringement or counterfeiting,” the Internet companies wrote in Tuesday’s letter. “Unfortunately, the bills as drafted would expose law-abiding U.S. Internet and technology companies to new uncertain liabilities, private rights of action and technology mandates that would require monitoring of websites.”  The chamber-led coalition in support of the bill includes Walmart, Eli Lilly & Co. and Netflix.

Google and other opponents of the legislation argue that restricting the Internet in the U.S. sets a bad international precedent and that the language defines infringing too broadly.

Sometimes it's a tie between The Lion King and The Hunchback of Notre Dame. The Lion King is my comfort movie, the one that still stands as one of the first movies I've watched in theaters, and I have the entirety of that movie memorized from line to line. But The Hunchback of Notre Dame made me sit up and really take notice of its powerful themes and cast of characters when I was seven years old, all of which I've craved and tried to look for in other narratives. That and its sweeping scores and choruses made me listen to its soundtrack over and over again until I wore out the CD.

Sometimes I just want to say, "Fuck it," and go with The Fox and the Hound. That movie made me sad when I was younger, but now I relate too much to it. You never quite get over the loss of a friend, and while the movie had a bittersweet end, I like to think that they still saw each other as friends in spite of what happened between them.

Sometimes it's all of these movies. Plus Beauty and the Beast because you can feel all of the love that was put into it, and Beast/Belle, UGH. ; ;


Also can we talk about Don Bluth movies, too? Those movies rocked.

So what does an awesome lady do in the wee hours of the morning after writing smut? Why, she posts an icon meme because she's bored! She takes a particular one hiding in the journal of an RPG character from way back, borrows the code and puts some of the icons in it. Also, said-lady may or may not continue to refer to herself in the third person until the end of this entry.

So, today's my birthday. I'm 24. W-When did that happen. D:
samatethecookie: holy crap, I have this hairstyle now (/stalking)
So! Icon meme stolen from [ profile] cheriestar. Because I can.

Look at your LJ userpics list. If you have fewer than 50 icons, pick every fifth one. If you have between fifty and seventy-five icons, pick every seventh one. If you have over seventy-five icons, pick every tenth one. If you have fewer than ten, pick all of ‘em. If you have fewer than 20, pick every other. List them on your LJ, and tell everyone exactly why you have it, why it’s interesting to you, what significance does it have.

The icons, plus some text/explanations... )

Originally posted by [ profile] darkspirited1 at SIGNAL BOOST: SAY YES TO GAY YA
This comes from an article by [ profile] rachelmanija entitled, Say Yes to Gay YA.
(click the link for the full article)

Our novel Stranger has five viewpoint characters; one, Yuki Nakamura, is
gay and has a boyfriend. Yuki's romance, like the heterosexual ones in
the novel, involves nothing more explicit than kissing.

An agent from a major agency, one which represents a bestselling YA novel in the same genre as ours, called us.

The agent offered to sign us on the condition that we make the gay
character straight, or else remove his viewpoint and all references to
his sexual orientation.

This isn't about that specific agent; we'd gotten other rewrite requests before this one. Previous agents had also offered to take a second look if we did rewrites… including cutting the viewpoint of Yuki, the gay character.

It's time to stand up and demand change. Spread the word everywhere if you are just as angry and outraged by this.

As a note to my Avatar friends: I just updated my tumblr with a lot of information about The Legend of Korra from Comic-Con. Take a look at the first two pages, if you're curious.

Meme time! Since I haven't been updating my journal with these in awhile, it's about time.

[ profile] elle_white gave me five questions. If you comment on this entry, I'll ask you a few questions. For now, here's my answers:

Questions and Answers... )

Then [ profile] analeisa was kind enough to provide me fandoms for this meme. <3

Leave a comment on this post and I will pick three of your fandoms. Then you get to answer the following questions:

1. The first character I first fell in love with:
2. The character I never expected to love as much as I do now:
3. The character everyone else loves that I don't:
4. The character I love that everyone else hates:
5. The character I used to love but don't any longer:
6. The character I would shag anytime:
7. The character I'd want to be like:
8. The character I'd slap:
9. A pairing that I love:
10. A pairing that I despise:
11. Favorite character:
12. My five favorite characters:
13. My five least favorite characters:
14. Which character I am most like:
15. My deep, dark fandom secret:

Avatar, Sailor Moon, Teen Titans... )

And finally, I would love to get some prompts for this one, if you'd be so kind.

Give me a pairing and I will:
1. Tell you who I think tops
2. Who has the prettiest hair
3. What their children will be named
4. Which one would be the loudest during sex
5. My ideal scenario for them

I beat Mass Effect 2 last night.

Spoilers! )

So, yeah, I might replay it. Make another f!Shepard with more renegade choices and romancing Garrus. Or maybe try my hand at a m!Shepard, but I doubt it. Maybe I'll wait until Mass Effect 3 is out to try my hand at a male protagonist, since none of the love interests in the second game really piqued my interest.

I'm starting to wonder if I'm cursed.

First it was my phone. Then it was my iPod. And now, my ring went missing for two days.

I finally found it in my blanket, but still. D:

I'm waiting a few more days for the iPod to show itself. If I don't find it by then, it's time for another one. I'm not sure if I want to get another iPod nano or finally give in and get myself an iPod touch. To be honest, I like the iPod Touch that my dad has, but I don't like how sensitive the touch screen is, and if I want to play any games, I can just borrow his iPod. I only like music players that play...well, music. And Lord knows I will never own an iPhone so that option's out. (Not that I dislike iPhones; I just don't use my phone at all.)

Still, I need my iPod back. I ripped a Michelle Branch CD. It demands nostalgic revisiting!

So...been home for awhile. Nothing drastic has happened, except that [ profile] sleepyscribbles and I may or may not retcon all of our characters and their roleplay from scratch. Not completely, since we're keeping some things in and we're still working through the details, but our characters have evolved so much over the last few years that it's probably time to apply those changes from the beginning of their story.

I want to know, does anyone have any writing exercises for original characters? Or meme things? I found some OC Inspiration Charts that I intended to fill out on my day off tomorrow and Friday, and I already know about the existence of 365 Questions for Roleplay Characters, but I haven't really found anything else to satisfy me.

Well, I'm sick. Again. Body aches and sore throat. It all happened last night when I woke up from my nap. I feel significantly better after I slept in, but I still feel like shit. Hopefully my night at work will be uneventful, and if I ask, maybe they'll put me somewhere warm.

It's really starting to annoy me that I've been getting sick frequently. :\
samatethecookie: holy crap, I have this hairstyle now (Default)
So remember when I asked what computers you'd recommend?

I finally gave in and purchased a new laptop. It's an HP Pavilion dv7. It's supposed to have a snazzy enough video card to do some gaming. Finally! I haven't tried it out, but even if it doesn't work the way I'd want it in that aspect, it's still a lovely computer. Much better than the Dell Inspiron I was using. (And um. More expensive. It's the most money I've ever dropped on a single item. I felt sick.)

I named it Varric. Aw yeah, never abandon me, buddy.

Is it sad to say that I'm not very excited about Easter? I don't know why. It's not so much the holiday itself as it is the actual celebration. I can't really get myself hyped up for it anymore.

Of course, I'm only belly-aching. I should note a few positive things that have been going on lately.

1. Um, I'm writing again? It's crappy Dragon Age fanfiction involving my Warden and how she's dragged into all sorts of shenanigans, but at least they're story ideas I'm actually writing down.

2. I've been saving up for another laptop, too. I just...can't stand this Dell anymore. It doesn't work the way I want it to, even though I'm really not sure what I'm doing wrong. The hard drive went into failure twice since I've owned it, beyond my own doing. I guess it's a good sign that it needs to get scrapped? Either way, I've been looking to buy a laptop that's good for gaming anyway. The only problem is that I have no idea what to even buy, other than I'm looking into HP computers.

3. I recently watched the finale for Madoka Magica, and holy crap, that left me teary-eyed. It's been awhile since I watched an anime that left me anticipating the end that badly. I'm glad it didn't fail to deliver what I expected.

4. Uh. That's it? I never know what to blog anymore. The biggest thing that happened to me today was that I got two t-shirts and two new journals from my parents as an Easter present. Both are Disney-themed. They're cute.

Stole this meme from other people and because I keep seeing it pop up on LJ. I'm too lazy to work on the other memes at the moment, and this seems easy peasy. D:

Give me a character and I'll list the first three other characters I'd ship them with.
samatethecookie: holy crap, I have this hairstyle now (Default) life is boring, and I've pretty much been ignoring LJ lately since something weird's going on with it. Instead of exciting you with an entry about that, have a meme that I keep meaning to post.

Pick any (or several) character from a fandom of mine and I'll answer the following questions:

1) What is your opinion of this character? If you like, explain why you like him/her.

2) Is he/she important to the general plot?

3) Can you relate to this character at all? Does he/she grip you emotionally?

4) How much do you like the fandom that this character comes from?

5) Do you ship this character with any other character? Or, are you particularly intrigued by his/her relationship with any other character(s)? (romance-wise or platonic)

6) Is there anything about the character you would change?

7) If you were in the fandom with this character or knew this character in real life, how would you see yourself interacting with him/her?

8) Does this character make the cut as one of your all time favorites (if you like) or least favorites?

9) Would you hype up this character (if you like) or warn about this character (if you dislike) to someone new to fandom?

10) Is this character popular with the fanbase?

Also, the meme here is also sad and lonely (and I forgot all about it after I posted it nearly a month ago. um, oops?), so if you feel like contributing, go ahead!
