[Insert Awesome Friends-Only(ish) Graphic Here]
I'll make an nice graphic when I have the time.

For now, most of this journal is and will always be public. The only thing that is locked are my insane fandom ramblings about bands I like and things of that nature.

If you want in on that, add me! After you add me, I'll check out your journal and if you aren't a crazy stalker, I'll add you back ASAP! :D

I do have to ask, though, that if your journal is relatively new and you don't have a lot of Friends/communities added yet, please leave a comment letting me know what sort of stuff you're into. Particularly, if you want to read my fanfiction and see my fanart or not, since I know that's not everyone's cup of tea.

I just....love Jim Moriarty a lot, you guys. XD

When was the last time you were frightened out of your wits? Spooky stories welcome!

Yes. But only is certain circumstances.

I am just fine with darkness if I am outdoors. Indoors, however, in any sort of confined space, I becomes absolutely terrified of the dark, to irrational/phobic levels. It's an interesting combination of Claustrophobia and Noctophobia. And the enclosed space need not be small. I could be in my dark apartment or a massive dark ballroom, but as long as there are walls, I am gone.

This post is to let everyone know I am alive. Rarely updating, but alive.

Things I am addicted to:

- My iPhone
- Supernatural
- The West Wing
- Shitty reality competition shows of every variety
- Supernatural
- Discovering really freaking random fic on AO3. LOL angsty A-Team fic? IDEK I LOVE IT
- Mountain Dew (I CAN QUIT WHENEVER I WANT OK?)
- Misha Collins
- Waiting for freaking SWTOR to be released.
- Tumblr

I saw Real Steel today. it was far my awesome than expected.

Adios, Mishamigos!

So, there's this story on the figure skating kinkmeme, called "Wyrd Byð Ful Araed." It's a viking AU, basically, and I've fallen totally in love with the characters and world in which it takes place. The writing style is also stark and powerful. It's one of my very favorite stories there, and I decided I wanted to illustrate a scene from it.

These lines really captured me when I was first reading it:

On the seventh day, Steinunn decides to damn Eyvind's shaky peace. He cannot let this desecration of his allies stand. But just as he's considering how many warriors the Volga Rus will need, their chieftain Yevgen Broken-Nose arrives at Heorot.

He's alone on the back of a starving horse. His once-magnificent cloak is mud-matted from weeks of travel, and the axe strapped across his back is fit for a woodcutter rather than a warlord. He has been stripped of all his arm rings, and one knee is swollen so badly that he can barely stand.


And I imagined Yevgen on his horse, this broken, once-great man now left without a kingdom, having barely escaped with his life. And then I thought of what a horrible journey that must have been, riding out of all that destruction. That image just really stuck with me.

So I painted this, based on that image of the broken king leaving his ravaged kingdom behind:

[ZOMG HUGE 300 DPI VERSION]


It turned out far better than I anticipated it would. I've never really tried anything that detailed before! So I'm just really very pleased with it. :D

Random facts about parts of the image:
- His bracers are embossed with a Viking-style wolf symbol. Because of Bjorn's pet wolf in the story. IDK I just think Yevgen and Bjorn are awesome and melancholy together.
- The medals have Elder Futhark runes on them. The ones on the horse stand for "riding" (on the bridle) and "horse" (on the bit). The one on the medal at his shoulder stands for "inherited possession" which I thought was appropriate for royalty.

Random statistics because I think they're neat:
Painted entirely in Adobe Photoshop CS4.
Finished in about 30 hours over a week.
620 separate layers in the final file:
- 479 layers for the figure and horse.
- 141 layers for the background.

YAY IT'S DONE! Haha \o/

Today, mon bebes, is a no good very bad day.

And I can't even figure out why.

I'm just very angry at nothing. I don't generally get angry about much of anything. I'm a mellow, roll-with-the-punches sort. I was very short with my roommates, when usually I like them a lot.

This feels weird and I don't know what's causing it.

Maybe it's PMS? I've never had this happen before. :(

Even typing this, I am just very disgruntled at...everything. Boo.

Here, have a female goblin dancing the Single Ladies dance.



Time is money, friend~

So my father came up to New York and visited a few weeks ago. We did the touristy things that you aren't supposed to do if you actually live here. Good times!



We went to the Empire State Building, and the Intrepid Air and Space Museum, which is on a giant aircraft carrier at the docks and not nearly as boring as you'd think it'd be.

And then we went to the zoo!


That looks strangely comfortable.


More animals under here!Collapse )

I'm a bit rusty and this camera wasn't the best. I need to get my better camera fixed. Still, I think some of these turned out well. :D

In between trying to figure out a good TV show to watch, procrastinating on work, and feeling like shit because I'm totally getting a cold, I decided to do this random icon meme.
