Pick 10 people and give them the "you make my day" award.

If you're picked, you are charged with picking 10 of your own. So if your name was chosen...come on down! You're the next contestant on the make my day meme:
(Uhmm... 10? What is this thing about 10? Well, I'll stick to it for once, but just to be clear, mentioned are not, you ALL have made my day in one way or another. :D)

Leave a ONE WORD comment that you think best describes me. It can only be one word. No more than one word. Then copy & paste this post to your own journal so I can leave a word about you.

Because I really should apologize by I'm dilly-dallying on that shipping meme from [livejournal.com profile] amethysth

This is the WIP meme nicked from [livejournal.com profile] icedteainthebag and [livejournal.com profile] miabicicletta in my late night wonderings. (Some of them are actually open right now on my computer, and I'm hoping their WIP status is not to remain... as such, but anyways. Onward.)

Post the names of all the files in your WIP folder, regardless of how non-descriptive or ridiculous. (Note: some titles liable to change while other WIPs may never be... uhmm... completed)

First of all - let me apologize for taking so long to do this. ><" LOL! Also, this is... rambly, possibly non-sensical, and long.

Comment to this entry and I'll pick three of your fandoms. You must then update your journal and answer the following questions:

01: What got you into this fandom in the first place?
02: Do you think you'll stay in this fandom or eventually move on?
03: Favorite episodes/books/movies/etc.?
04: Do you participate in this fandom (fanfiction, graphics, discussions)?
05: Do you think that more people should get into this fandom?

[profile] urei_sachi gave me D N Angel, Ouran, and Tenipuri, and [livejournal.com profile] kogoetahana  gave me D N Angel and Tenipuri as well along with Harry Potter! So let's get rolling! (And sorry I am so abominably late on these ^_^")

Memememememememememe... )
And that's... all. :D Well, that was fun.
obsessive_a101: (Default)
Sorry I'm responding to this so late! These are the interview questions that [livejournal.com profile] daigranon  posed to me (and because I've posted this meme before... I'm not going to recopy.)

5 Questions... )
obsessive_a101: (Default)
So the basic gist as provided by [livejournal.com profile] amethysth :

So the basic gist is to list 15 of your all time favorite characters (or the first 15 that come to mind) and answer the following questions.

I'm guessing this means fictional characters in general, and I have way too many, so I'll add to the list as they come to mind:
 

1. Akkarin (from the Black Magician Trilogy; he's such a wonderfully misunderstood character for the majority of the book, and I got so attached to him.
2. Laura Roslin (Battlestar Galactica; if you scanned through my journal, the evidence is self-explanatory.)
3. Remus Lupin (Harry Potter; I just... adore him *cries*)
4. Minerva McGonagall (Harry Potter; she just sort of strikes me very deeply as probably one of my favorite Profs from the series. I love her no-nonsense yet still fun sort of personality.)
5. Numair Salmalin (aka Arram Draper XD; from The Immortals quartet by Tamora Pierce; I loved this Tortall series by her, and he's such an interesting scatter-brained character.)
6. Veralidaine Sarrasri (aka Daine; also from The Immortals quartet; stubborn, sensible, and loves animals, what more?)
7. Dumbledore (Harry Potter; I love him. Period. Just, I found him to be fascinating, and I really admire the way JKR managed to delve into his backstory.)
8. Haruhi (Ouran HSHC; probably tied with Kyouya as my favorite characters from the show; she's adorable, and I seem to really like characters with either a lot of sense, or none at all XD)
9. Kyouya (Ouran HSHC; just, he's such a complicated character, and I seem to really love complicated characters as well.)
10. Jean Grey (X-Men; the redhead with a temper... just, she has been a favorite of mine since I watched the X-Men animated series as a child and watched her sacrifice herself, and in my little child's head, I felt beyond amazed and humbled by what love can do to and for a person.)
11. Admiral William Adama (Battlestar Galactica; a complicated character in and of himself, but still adorable nonetheless in a weird even I don't understand sort of way... strange?) 
12. Gaius Baltar (Battlestar Galactica; because he is selfish and crazy and his character and mind fascinates me so much)
13. Raven ([Teen] Titans; yes, I'm a child at heart, and she's another fascinating character... I mean literal inner demons, end of worlds and all ^_^)
14. Billy Keikeya (Battlestar Galactica; not a main character, but I sufficiently do not care. I still miss him ;_;)
15. Sherlock Holmes (Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes mysteries)

That's a... random list, but oh well. Onwards to fun!


Ah, done. (^_^) LOL!

2. Each tagged person must post 8 things about themselves in their journal.
3. At the end, you have to choose and tag 8 people.
tagged by
[livejournal.com profile] miss_fancy.

1. I love reading. My mom used to read to me constantly when I was little until I eventually just started picking up book's my myself. I used to adore the Richard Scarry books and I had some almost memorized. At the moment, one of my big tiffs with uni is tat I don't have enough time to read everything that I want to even though I have a collection of books "I need to read" on my bookshelf right in front of me constantly. I can only stare at them longingly.

2. Music... for me is constant, always running, even in silence. It is my belief that you can "hear" silence just as much as you can hear sound, so music is omnipresent, and I wouldn't have it any other way.

3. I think that I've mentioned this before, but I'm a semi-quirky person: I'm pragmatic though normally optimistic, I like talking to trees and plants and animals and things that in general don't normally talk back (and if they do, you know you're in trouble), I like and enjoy sleep but seem unhappy with not being able to get anything done while asleep so I have an abnormal sleeping schedule, I'm better nocturnal but the rest of the human world doesn't normally agree, and I like to dance and skip and hop randomly down streets and will wonder why people stare at me.

4. It takes a lot to truly piss me off, but when I'm angry, I really, REALLY get angry.

5. I grew up with all boys practically. The few girls I knew (I have ONE female cousin who's around my age) were all tom-boys, so yes, I'm slightly tom-boyish myself though I like to dance. I climb walls, I run around a lot, and I've done some highly stupid, wild things growing up (ie: banging my knee badly by hanging on the back of a chair in midair; falling off of a said wall).

6. I am accident-prone with no sense of direction, so I have a deep-seated fear in driving, but I have a license. I should probably get a warning label to go along with it. XD

7. I spent the beginning of Kindergarten not understanding my teacher since English is "technically" my second language, spoken one at least, and for a time, I thought the 'gold' pebble we got in that class for St. Patrick's day was real. (^_^)"

8. I enjoyed hitting [armored] people with sticks. (eg: Kendo, Fencing) It's very emotionally relieving. XD

So, there was a meme in this post here about how there are some things we don't post, and well, we're going to explore that. (^_^)

caramelapples11 asked:

Do you prefer night or day? Why? And what do you do at those times?

It's interesting because my parents have been talking to me about making sure I get enough sleep, but you can probably tell from the time I'm posting this that I am sort of a night person. The problem is that I also don't like to sleep in, so I go to bed late and try to wake up early, which is not healthy in the sleep department. It got to the point where I actually went nocturnal for the last week of term last year (not counting the all-nighters I pulled). It worked pretty well, since I was actually getting enough sleep, and I work a lot better at night. The nighttime seems to jump-start the part of me that thinks about different things (schoolwork or otherwise). It's also the time when I do most of my writing (I think I wrote all my papers last semester in the middle of the night). It's funny how Latin made more sense to me at 4 AM than it did at 4 PM. I would go to sleep after all my classes were done (the only day this didn't work was when I had lab) in the afternoon and wake up around 11 PM or 12 AM and started to work right through the and then go to class in the morning. I actually paid better attention as well. 

There are things I enjoy both about the day and the night, memories to be associated with both, and differenty kinds of happiness. I love watching the sunlight dance its way across everything or watch the shadows play along, I love cloud gazing, I love the energy that surrounds the day, and there's the dynamic of knowing that a certain lightness cuts through; you can watch everyone and everthing around you moving, to actually be able to <i>see</i> it happening. (That's the problem with being nocturnal; I missed too many things so I stopped.) But then, I adore the nighttime. It's the time when you can see fireworks fly through the sky while sitting on the hood of your dad's car, or watch the fireflies among the grass and bushes, when you feel a quieting down and an awakening of life around you. I love how night shows that darkness, instead of smothering it, actually bolsters and emphasizes light, and makes every speck that much brighter. It's the time that I probably feel calmest (and why I think so much better probably). There's a peace to finding the stars in the sky at night, to reading because you can't POSSIBLY stop before you finish, to listening to soft music, to reminiscing and writing those things down in your diary. I find it easier to contemplate then because there is a feeling of solitude, not loneliness, but a solitude that I enjoy.

There are aspects of both night and day that I can't live without, and the best image I can provide for my feelings would have to be a melding of day and night that I constantly love drawing...  A melding of colors, one star becoming many, and just, I can lose myself in the transition. (^_^) I can look outside and see time just flowing along, and I love that feeling of moving along, even if I sometimes dread it.  
obsessive_a101: (Satoshi)

So, it’s been a while, and I’ve been busy (sort of). (^_^) I hope everyone else is well (and that amethysth has not commited any mental murder of a certain author yet, LOL).

 

I’m reading a really good book right now, interspersed between my studying (-_-)”, called “Firefly Lane” by Kristin Hannah. I might post a review when I finally finish.

 

I finished reading the “Kare Kano” manga (and I refuse to watch the anime since I’m spoiled for the quality in which it ends), which was AMAZING thought the ending was a bit iffy for me. There was a play that the students in the manga wrote and performed concerning human androids, perfection, love, God, madness, and the end of the world that sort of reminded me of BSG…. I wonder why? XD Anyways, The English translation of the manga is called, accurately so, “His and Her Circumstances.” The author is also very into opera and music, and I got an amazing rec from her. It’s a song from the movie “The Piano” by Michael Nyman. It’s called “The Heart Asks Pleasure First,” and I was going to try embedding it again, but I have too many problems when I try to, so here’s a URL to the music video for the song:

 

Piano

 

Also, there’re these comment-ficcies I did on the F_B community during the BSG hiatus flails on Friday: (The first two are sort of short and fun; the last is sort of sad and Laura-centric and based on the episode “Sacrifice”. As for ratings, I’m pretty sure they’re all safe because I’m unable to write anything higher than T.)

 

 

 

Jealousy is a fun emotion to play with... Unless you're the green-eyed monster )

 

 

 

Dig deep. )

 

 

 

I Miss Billy. )

 

 

 

And finally, a meme from caramelapples11:

 

Everyone has things they blog about. Everyone has things they don't blog about. Challenge me out of my comfort zone by telling me something I don't blog about, but you'd like to hear about, and I'll write a post about it. Ask for anything: latest movie watched, last book read, favorite type of underwear, life experiences etc. Re-post in your own journal so that we can all learn more about each other.

If there are one or more people on your friends list who make your world a better place just because they exist, and who you would not have met (in real life or not) without the Internet, then post this same sentence in your journal.

A meme from [info]caramelapples11:A. People who have been tagged must write their answers on their blogs and replace any question they dislike with a new question formulated by themselves. Tag 8 people.

B. These 8 people must state who they were tagged by. You cannot tag the person who tagged you. Continue this game by sending this to 8 other people. People who are tagged will be blessed and their wishes will come true in the future...Just like all your wishes have come true from all those chain e-mails you used to send. ;)

 

Meme... )


I can't seem to really choose eight specific people, but anyone who wants to... feel free to. Hmm... actually. YOU (you know who you are... edward-lover) have to. (^_^)
 

BSG:

Thanks to [info]caramelapples11, I am completely obsessed with this show at the moment and wished I had waited for the last season to come out before I decided to play catch-up. It has cost me sleep, but I would say, for now at least, that it was worth it. So, I’m going to go on and on about it for a little while: pardon me. 

Favorite character: Laura Roslin- I have liked her character since the first few episodes I ever saw BSG. She and Boomer were the two characters that left the greatest impression on me, and now, I’m completely in love with her character. I love complex characters, and the show is filled with them. It also helps that I’ve fallen in love with Mary McDonnell. I recognized her somehow and then I realized: “Dances with Wolves,” which is a totally awesome movie. (^_^)

OTP: Bill Adama/Laura Roslin- really, is there any way their relationship could be more adorable?

 

 

Oh, and I’m in love with this incredible vid:

As to life: I'm still drowning in tons of work... in the past two weeks, I've gotten maybe twenty-five hours of actual sleep. However, my first set of midterms is finally over and done with (not that I did all that well on them -_-), and yesterday night was the dance performance (and despite being positively biased, it was awesome) for the dance troupe I'm in, which means the end of six-hour rehearsals and such. I now have to play catch-up, but oh-well. (^^)

And because I seem to continue going on and on anyways, the following are ficdrabbles that are the result of my mind being unable to settle down from the muses which invade it. They are dedicated to caramel apples11, because she is the reason why I started watching this show again for better or for worse. Most of them are laura-centric, and I apologize ahead of time, because I'm not sure if I did the characters justice, but this is my first attempt at writing bsg fic. 

EDIT: (--) For some reason, LJ keeps on reformmatting my entry...

10 Weird Habits Meme [from [personal profile] lea26karla]
Each player of this game starts off with 10 weird things/habits/little known facts about yourself. People who get tagged need to write a blog of their own 10 weird habits/things/little known facts as well as state this rule clearly. At the end you need to choose 10 people to be tagged and list their names. No tagbacks. ~ as taken from [profile] zanisha

Hmmm... this should get interesting.

1. I like looking at the ground as I walk, and sometimes I'll make up little games where I walk along lines, on certain colored tiles, or count how many steps I take in one block.

2. I will and like to hug trees and trace patterns in the bark. (^^)

3. I talk to plants... trees, bushes, flowers, etc... as if they will talk back to me, and I'm not disappointed when they don't (out loud).

4. If I have a fear of something (spiders, mirrors in the dark, doll's eyes), I will purposely subject myself to experience that fear by myself even if the end result is me screaming... (**)"

5. I can't have people touching me if they aren't family members. I will automatically stiffen and freeze up if I'm not the one who initiates contact. There has also been this one instance where I ran into a wall because someone surprised me by tapping me on the shoulder.

6. I am completely and utterly helpless when it comes to falling into new obsessions (hence my username : ).

7. I like to close my eyes when listening to music because it helps me to 'feel' the sounds better.

8. I apparently pick up random quirks and handwriting styles from people if I see it often enough, so I can end up using three different sets of handwriting when writing a single essay.

9. There are moments in a day where I'll start dancing and singing randomly... even in the middle of school.

10. I use '...' entirely too much (^^).

Tagging:
1. [profile] amethysth

3. [personal profile] knw
4. [profile] nekokatechan
5. [profile] siriusangel
6. amethysth's sister (you know who you are)

From here on: I haven't friended that many people yet, and really don't know that many people, so if four people are willing to volunteer... I would be extremely grateful : ).
