The livejournal situation

I've decided I was going to stop crossposting from DW to LJ, likewise for [community profile] nightonficmountain. The new ToS make me uneasy. Idk, I reserve the right to change my mind.

I am also [personal profile] dhampyresa on DW. Come say hello!

Lessons learned

1. Have a tagset review period for your exchanges. Trust me on this. (Also, Morbane is amazing.)


2. Sometimes I am irrational about things and don't know how to explain without sounding bonkers if I even know why, but apparently I react really badly to being told "good luck" and to the existence of lovememes (people are free to take part in lovememes all they want, I just don't want to hear about them, ever). I need some sort of blocker for these things.


3. I can swim 2.5k in one go! (Past total: 25 350 / 585 689. Current total: 27 850 / 585 689.)

That was scary

Some time last night I made the apparently colossal mistake of trying to boot my computer in safe mode. Reader, that did not work out.

I was unable to even access my password screen. After hours of fruitless frantic rebooting and phone-searching for a solution (it's no use telling me how to solve the issue from the troubleshoot menu if I can't access the troubleshoot menu) I gave up and went to bed past my bedtime. Then I woke up before my alarm (bleh) spent some more time fruitlessly trying to fix it to no avail. Then I took a shower and ate breakfast and when I tried again I could suddenly access the troubleshoot menu! So I fixed my computer, copied some important files I hadn't backed up yet and checked if it booted properly now. It did.

I don't even know. But hey! I have my computer back!


Exchange news: Self, you need to stop claiming pinch-hits and being an idiot. You're not even in that exchange! WHY

Other Exchange news: Night on Fic Mountain progressing as it should. Worldbuilding exchange fast approaching (eep!).


And now I'm going to go read about the time when the Seine rose 8m62 (23'3") and Paris flooded. AND THEN IT FROZE OVER. Good times.

Stuff and whatnot

.It's that time of the year again! As readers of this journal may know, I mod several fanwork exchanges. The biggest of those, [community profile] nightonficmountain , just opened nominations. There may be venting (most likely under-lock) because let me tell you, I have not missed the ao3 nomination approval interface and especially not its tendency to throw 404s at me when I've just validated a bunch of noms, aaaaaaaargh. /the glamorous life of a fandom mod



I've seen a bunch of movies lately I haven't talked about on here -- and should -- Arrival (Hollywood scifi), Patients (French slice-of-life/biography) and Hidden Figures/Les Figures de l'ombre (US Historical) all of which were good.

I also saw Logan. Look. I have been for X-23 on the big screen for literally over a decade. I cannot overstate this: the very first time X-23 appeared, in a season 3 episode of X-Men:Evolution, I was sitting in front of my TV going "SHE IS THE GREATEST AND HER FEET CLAWS ARE THE COOLEST". Based on that, you'd think I would have had high expectations for this movie, but the thing is, I didn't, mostly because I didn't believe it was actually real. Like. There's an X-23 movie????? Is this the real life? But I have to say this was an awesome X-23 movie. Also SHE IS THE GREATEST AND HER FEET CLAWS ARE THE COOLEST.

I read too many comics

My dream last night consisted entirely of me finding out the last book of a series I've been following was out, acquiring said book from my comicshop and then reading said comic book for the rest of the dream (90+%). It was a damn good comic book, I have to say, and I enjoyed it greatly. It did have some issues though, and I'm glad to say the actual series is still going in real life (the dream!last book's number actually came out several years/books ago).

It's not even the first time I've had a dream consisting almost entirely of me reading a comicbook. They're good comics, every time, so I can't complain, really.

Art prompts

I've brainstormed many ways to start this post, but in the end decided nobody gave a fuck, so I'll skip right ahead to the bottom line.

Please give me drawing prompts!

I'll draw fandom and original stuff. Please provide a reference and/or description, if I'm unfamiliar with the character(s). Can also be objects and/or landscapes -- the point is to stretch myself and draw new stuff.

Restriction: There is a non-zero chance various people will see what I'm drawing. Don't make me explain oviposition to my mom, please.

Aside from that, I'll give anything my best go. I'll most likely be working in pencil + coloured pencils and/or markers (at least one colour). I can't promise it'll be a heartbreaking work of staggering genius, but it should at least be decent on a technical level.

Also, I DO WHAT I WANT

I'm tired of having to defend enjoying the things I enjoy. As I just told my dad when he disparaged my desire to see Logan, "Look, I have been waiting for this movie* for over a decade. You will not take this from me." And he didn't.


*X-23 IS GOING TO BE IN A MOVIE OMG OMG OMG (been waiting for this since she first showed up in X-Men:Evolution -- OMG SHE'S GOING TO BE IN A MOVIE)
