Uh, testing?

I want to see how this looks as a crosspost, so.


Day 02 - Where I'd like to be in 10 years.

Obviously I'd like to be financially secure, with a roof over my head and enough food to eat and clothes on my back. Other than that, I hope that by then I'd have at least gotten one book published, been a few places around the world, live with all the pets I ever wanted and maybe I guess be with someone who I adore. And it goes without saying, happiness and contenment.

That's about it.
meme stolen from [livejournal.com profile] ionizable because gawddayum, its been a long time since I did one.



Day 01 - I am single as a solitary pringle. Always have been up until now. Never dated, never made out with someone, the whole shebang etc. I did get asked out on a date once but I did not like the dude in question so I told him I had an exam. He suggested another time and day after my exams were done but I prevaricated because I refuse to go out with people who do not make me feel comfortable and this chap, who was my next door neighbor by the way had this knack of making me feel supremely uncomfortable. That was way back in the 12th grade.

The thing is I studied in a all-girls Catholic school and a all-girls Catholic convent. So as a result, I didn't learn how to interact with people who were not ladies and I was absolutely terrified of dudes. I couldn't even look them in the eye, let alone say a word or two to them.

But when I went on to do my post-grad, I decided it was time for me to pull-up my boots and get to interacting. The first few months, I was floundering but after that I managed and now I can look a dude in the eye and talk and have two excellent dude friends. Ooh, and postgrad too was where I developed some serious crushes (one only and lmao, I remember once me and friend were hiding in the bushes and checking this dude out.). I never made them progress beyond the point of a crush though because, one - no guts, two - or rather more importantly, I realized I do not do casual. I'm either all in or all out. I tend to be more invested than the other person and that way only lies to disaster.

I am also the person who when they crush pretends that the other person dosen't exist. I can't help it because my face is terribly expressive and if I had to look at the person I was crushing on as I passed by, my face would be the death of me. Hmm. I do need to find me some courage. At least acknowledging the other person is there would be a start. :D

I also feel compelled to admit that despite having no relationship expert whatsoever, I am the person who apparently doles out relationship advice and good advice at that. :D

Okay, I have been living under a rock. For shame, fannish self, FOR SHAME.

I mean, I knew vaguely that Community was supposed to be premiering somewhere in Oct/Nov and today I realized I haven't seen the newest episode and I was all, "GASP, I AM TERRIBLE FAN" and I checked out wiki and it's premiering in FEBRUARY OF NEXT YEAR. Fine, I told myself I would deal.

BUT.

Then I read, CHEVY CHASE LEFT. NO MORE PIERCE???? I know, Dan Harmon left, I havent been so out of it, BUT STILL. ;_; Also, I know Pierce wasn't the bestest but it was still fun and they were dysfunctional group who were buds and blarghhh. And he and Shirley would get up to side shenanigans too!

I'm sad that the show is getting all thrown around AND that my fannish self is receding. TIME TO BRING IT BACK OUT.

I'm kind of annoyed with myself. 

THE ONE TIME I DIDNT BACK UP MY STUFF, THAT THE TIME MY LAPTOP DECIDES TO CRASH.

WHYYYY GOD?

I lost most of my fic, most of my music and then all the textures that I saved and most of all, THE FINAL EDITED VERSION OF THESIS.

THERE IS A REALITY SHOW ABOUT CAKES.

It's like God answered my prayers. Or the TV people got into my brain and stole it.

Either way.

Cake + Reality Show = TEARS OF JOY (ME).

The prompt I chose was " Annie or Jeff calls the other for help with something unrelated to school" . I hope this is something along the lines of what you wanted to read. :)

So, I got my results. 77.3% (GET IT, ME!)

My Mom dropped the phone in shock. A) And then asked me if I was well.B) Then asked me if I was playing a bad joke. C)Then asked me why I lied to her.

A - Because I'm the Queen of the middlin sixties. Mid seventies in an end-sem exam is unprecedented and unheard of.
B - Same as above. Shit like this never happens to me. NEVER.
C - Cause ever since the exams ended, I was convinced I would fail one of my papers cause it was too lenghty and I was unable to finish it and therefore I left a twenty-marker and I've been hyperventilating since then. Also in another paper, I was so stress I was pretty sure I mixed up answers (I did, but not on such a large scale as my fevered imagination was imagining). Therefore to prep my Mom beforehand, I told her that I just might have an arrear this time, so that if it happened, she would not have a meltdown of epic proportions. When the results actually came and I told Mummy she asked me why I lied. As if I knew why my examiners were so generous. I had actually schooled myself to accept my arrear with grace(I told myself I would lose my shit later on in private.)

So yeah. In the end Mummy was very happy. I'm happy too. Cause this brings my average upto 72% and I'm 3% away from reaching my intended average. Reaching that will make me die happy. And it will also make Mummy shut up cause my GPA will be like UP there and she can't say I didnt do well. So here's hoping I do well. :)
Lancelot sacrificed himself. :'( You can't help but feel for the dude. And also applaud his resolve. In the very end, he did it for Gwen and  I think that weighed on Gwen heavily cause she didn't realise the enormity of the vow. She just asked Lancelot to take care of Arthur but the way Lancelot sees it, whatever keeps Gwen happy, that is what he will do. Ngl, I shed a few tears.

You know, in original Arthurian myth, I kind of felt bad for Arthur cause you know, true love was Lancelot's and Gwen's thing and not his. Not that I blame them either. Shit happens and you deal. But here, happy ending is not for Lancelot and wahhh! I feel bad for the dude. And now I kinda feel bad for Gwen, cause she's going to acquire a massive guilt complex that dosen't really have a solution.

And Arthur, how do you compete with the dude who just gave up his life for Gwen. Short of doing the same, there's nothing Arthur can really do in terms of the grandest gesture of love. I somehow feel that is going to weigh heavily on Arthur along with his other issues, cause you know, the king in waiting can never have enough issues to plague him.

Also, Merlin, poor thing. Did I ever want to give him a hug when I saw his reaction to Lancelot going into the veil. The relationship between him and Lancelot is/was kinda sweet. Lancelot obviously treats him like a younger baby brother and is always so affectionate towards him. Watching someone that close to you sacrifice themselves cannot be nice.

And in other feelings totally not related to the ones of sadness above - who cannot love Gwaine? He is such a clown. And so much fun ALL of the time  :D And his relationship with Merlin is very sweet too. Gwaine too gets all protective him. Heh. ;>

Come to think of it, I think many people can't help but feel protective if Merlin. He looks like an adorable young boy and he is in many respects and even if they knew he could kick their asses, they would still get all protective of him cause I suppose he's the kind that inspires that in you.

And that was the end of my feelings post.  :)

deternot gave me Community, X-Men Evolution, Chuck, Harry Potter.

Community - Annie Edison

Hands down Annie Edison. Like I dont even have to think about it. Yes, she's over-achieving, aggravating and that girl in class who always does her homework and aces everything way ahead of time but still, she's lovable, kind, caring and so very human.

X-Men Evolution - Rogue

You can;t help but feel for the girl, dudes. Mystique messes with her mind most of the time. She dosent have family, she is lonely, insecure and so badly in love with Cyclops who is head over heels with Jean Grey, who is everything Rogue feels she is not. And there's that enforced isolation which her powers make her undergo, and also nearly make her insane. Yet, girlfriend soldiers on and somehow manages to become a vital part of the X-Men and most importantly, kick butt and be awesome in the way that she can. Also, her bonding relationship with Kurt is beyond cute. As is the tiny sparks of her romance with Gambit. :D

Chuck - Chuck!

The titular character himself. Sure he's a bumbling, nerdy, spy in training but he's also one of the sweetest characters on the show, genuinely seeing good in everyone and just being such a doll in general. It's no wonder that everyone wants to protect him, depsite the fact that he's capable of taking care of himself. Heck, even Casey can't just off him like any other person. That's just cause Chuck just crawls his way into your heart, and sits there all warm and sweet, even to someone as hardened and tough as John Casey. He's just one Big pile of Awwww.

Harry Potter - Lun Lovegood.

God, Luna is one of the best characters ever. She exisists on another plane for sure, but she's ridiculously self-aware and observant, more so than people believe. And she dosent let her self be bound by anything, which is one of the coolest thing ever, cause really, how many of of us are REALLY, truly open to new belifs and experiences. And I love how dedicated she is to her friends. And the best part is when during Book 7, she along with Neville (another favourite character of mine) hold the fort down at Hogwarts and generally kick butt. I was super depressed when JKR didn't set her up with Neville. They were totally meant to be dudes! We got robbed. :'(

Disclaimer: My possessions can fit into a suitcase. No space for Community in there cause Dan Harmon already put it in his suitcase. Um, Sleepover Club is not mine either. Also Batman and Disney aren’t mine either.
Pairing : Study Group with a Jeff/Annie slant.

A/N - First community fic ever and dear god am I nervous about it being terribly OOC (CAUSE IT PROBABLY IS) and what not. I did try really hard to keep in characters but then again, I’m not one of the writers and nor do I own their special brand of awesomeness. Should you feel so inclined to leave it, feedback would be really appreciated.

 I got me a Tumblr dudes. I needed a fannish-shippy-graphics outlet.

Community is making me batshit crazy. I'm all over Jeff/Annie as OTP. The last time I ever got so fannish was for Nick/Macy from J.O.N.A.S. Feels good to obsess over something like this. :)

Anyhow, here is the link, if anyone is interested.
