return from exile

so I haven't even touched LJ in like almost a year, but I was listening to Florence + the Machine's "No Light, No Light" and thinking wow this is like the perfect Heero/Relena song. But then I was like who will share in this amazement with me??? And so I remember you all, my fandom buddies, my LJ friends :)

Ok so seriously, look at these lyrics. I want an AMV or a songfic or something! Click the hyperlink to listen on YouTube (the original music vid is kind of creepy so I linked to a diff one):

"No Light, No Light"

You are the hole in my head
You are the space in my bed
You are the silence in between what I thought
And what I said

You are the night time fear
You are the morning when it's clear
When it's over you'll start
You're my head
You're my heart

No light, no light in your bright blue eyes
I never knew daylight could be so violent
A revelation in the light of day
You can't choose what stays and what fades away

And I'd do anything to make you stay
No light, no light
No light
Tell me what you want me to say

Through the crowd, I was crying out
And in your place there were a thousand other faces
I was disappearing in plain sight
Heaven help me, I need to make it right

You want a revelation,
You wanna get it right
But, it's a conversation,
I just can't have tonight
You want a revelation
Some kind of resolution
You want a revelation

No light, no light in your bright blue eyes
I never knew daylight could be so violent
A revelation in the light of day,
You can't choose what stays and what fades away

And I'd do anything to make you stay
No light, no light
No light
Tell me what you want me to say

Would you leave me,
If I told you what I've done?
And would you need me,
If I told you what I've become?
'cause it's so easy,
To say it to a crowd
But it's so hard, my love,
To say it to you out loud

No light, no light in your bright blue eyes
I never knew daylight could be so violent
A revelation in the light of day,
You can't choose what stays and what fades away

And I'd do anything to make you stay
No light, no light
No light
Tell me what you want me to say

You want a revelation,
You wanna get it right
But, it's a conversation,
I just can't have tonight
You want a revelation
Some kind of resolution
You want a revelation

You want a revelation,
You wanna get it right
But, it's a conversation,
I just can't have tonight
You want a revelation, some kind of resolution
Tell me what you want me to say.

Watching a new anime!

So I just checked out the list of new anime for Spring 2011 and discovered a series called 'Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae wo Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai' or AnoHana for short. I've only seen one ep and it looks like it'll be beautiful. Six childhood friends have grown apart and carry with them a trauma from their youth. I'm thinking it's like a high school version of Honey & Clover, perhaps slightly more tear-jerking. You guys have to check it out: http://www.animecrazy.net/ano-hi-mita-hana-no-namae-wo-bokutachi-wa-mada-shiranai-anime/

Here's the Wiki page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ano_Hi_Mita_Hana_no_Namae_wo_Bokutachi_wa_Mada_Shiranai

Also, the OP is pretty catchy! ;)

I'd just really love to have someone to watch this with, so please give it a try ::watery chibi-eyes::

Help! I suck at making decisions

Ok guys, I need your help. I have to go to a TV-theme party tomorrow night and I still haven't figured out who to go as. The idea is to dress up as a character from a TV show and then remain in character the entire night. I'd like to find a costume out of my own wardrobe and not have to buy anything, except maybe a prop or two. Also, I'd like the costume to be recognizable enough as a costume that it won't be boring or hard for ppl to figure out who I am.

I've narrowed it down to 3 different characters and I'd love it if you could vote. I'll post links to some images so you can get a better idea of my options.

-Lorelai Gilmore from The Gilmore Girls (she's the mom's character: http://lorelaievans.livejournal.com/31381.html#cutid1)

-Nikita from the new series Nikita that airs on the CW (not the old La Femme Nikita) http://shessmart.com/fashion/nikita-fashion-tv-show-maggie-q/

-Fran Fine from the Nanny, you know that old show from the '90s about the Jewish woman from Queens who becomes a nanny for a British widower? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=88iaIWxK7m4

Poll #1719481 TV Character Costume

Which character should I dress up as for the TV-theme party?

Lorelai Gilmore (Gilmore Girls)
3(42.9%)
Nikita (Nikita on CW)
1(14.3%)
Fran Fine (The Nanny)
2(28.6%)
Other (enter in comments below)
1(14.3%)


a quick vote before midnight would be highly appreciated

Skip Beat! new manga chapter and ficlet

so the new chapter (171) of the Skip Beat! manga just came out (read it here: http://cyberakumamechgouki.blogspot.com/2011/02/skip-beat-chapter-171-scanlations.html) and I had to write another little fic in response to the new developments!! it's really just a snippet and I'm not sure if I should try to continue it or not. especially since the next chapter will be out in 2 weeks, and I may not finish this before that.

Anyway, Ren/Kyoko as usual, or Ren angsting about Kyoko as usual. Enjoy!

ETA: sorry for the cut-text FAILCollapse )

so should I keep going with it?Collapse )

I'm alive

I know it's been ages since I posted with a real update. I've just been incredibly caught up in figuring out my life and I think I'm  right on the cusp of it.  Things are moving super fast so I'm having some trouble staying balanced on the edge of that precipice, watching to see which direction will take me where I want to go, but I know I'm almost there. The wind is changing and I can feel it. It's a crazy heady feeling.

What it means though is that I am woefully out of touch with everyone. I haven't even checked out any of the CoL entries this year!  I am, however, all caught up with season 2 of Kimi ni Todoke.  I am so glad they decided to continue animating it through the end of the manga.  I love the way the it ended so I'm super psyched to see it on screen. They're so freaking cute.

Valentine's Day came and went without a blip.  I've been going to NYC pretty much every weekend, but it's more work than play at this point and very detrimental to my wallet. I have been trying to write some fic again but I'm so caught up with trying to change the world that I don't really have the time to weave a proper story.  I wrote some fic before all hell broke loose, but I kind of hate it because it's anti-fluff. :-/

Anyway, that's what's going on with me... what's going on with you?

There's a revolution going on, in case you missed it

It's been crazy and awesome watching this unfold over the past 2 weeks, but I'm not gonna bore you with stuff you've probably been reading and watching on the news. I just wanted to share a song that was written in honor of the protests by a bunch of hip-hop and rap artists from the US and Canada.  They got together and produced an amazing anthem and an even more amazing video. Check this out:


The song is available for free download if you click back to the Youtube link.


P.S. I'm thinking about putting together a playlist to the revolution. Anybody interested?  I may have ppl vote on songs since I think I have waaayyy too many.

Remembering Christ on Christmas

So I may not actually celebrate Christmas as a day in itself, but I do recognize that it is a commemoration of the Virgin Birth of Jesus. So I guess to sort of join in on the holiday spirit, I wanted to share those verses from the Qur'an that describe the miracle of the birth of Jesus to the Virgin Mary.  It's a really beautiful and emotional story, to think of a woman alone and pregnant carrying the burden of Divine Will.

Anyway, this is from the chapter titled 'Mary' (Chapter 19 of the Qur'an)Collapse )


Interesting Trivia: Mary is the only woman to be mentioned in the Qur'an by name.  Everyone else is mentioned by relation or title (i.e. Queen of Sheba, Pharoah's wife, etc).

the word :(

How did these past 2 days just disappear?

Somehow I seem to have missed two days of posting at 31_days 

I have no idea how this happened, because I am sure I've been writing and I planned out when I was going to post which drabble... How strange to lose all sense of time like that! I'll just have to save these 2 fics for the amnesty day they do at the end of the month. It'll give me more time to work on them I guess... but you all know how I am with extended time ^^;

Anyway, here's the Kyoko/Corn, Ren/Kyoko piece I posted on Saturday, for the Nov 6th prompt "This night thy soul may be required of thee":

“I’m in love with the person who gave me this.” She lifted up the blue-violet stone and let it sparkle. “You know who I mean, don’t you?” 

I may also upload this to FFN later.

Now I must work on tomorrow's fic! I thought I had so much more time!

Day 4! I think this is a record for me!

Thank god for 31_days that's all I have to say... i've only gotten a bit more than 2,000 words though -_- so not exactly success, but def not failure! Anyway, here's today's Skip Beat! ficlet.  Kyoko-centric introspection about Corn

Fairy Love

Because it wasn’t important whether she believed in love or not, what mattered was that the couple did and would work together to realize their dreams in each other. And that’s what she’d been getting wrong this whole time.Collapse )

ok not quite fail, but I'm def not doing 1500 words a day

in case anyone was curious, my NaNo project this year is to write as much Skip Beat fanfic as possible this month.  There is a severe dearth of fic for this fandom and so I'm trying my best to do my part to fix that :-P

I posted my Day 1 contribution to 31_days last night, so you can read it here: Too Late to Wake Up

Here's my Day 2 contribution:

The Prince is a Beast

She would never know about his messy past, never discover that her prince was actually a beast. Collapse )
