... Oh gosh how did it get to be AFTER ONE already? (Hm, it might have had something to do with the two tests I had to proctor today, now that I think about it...)

ANYWAY. As promised: The WIP Meme! Stolen from [ profile] februaryfour~

Post a single sentence or more from each WIP you have, or from as many WIPs as you want. Provide no context/explanations. )
ad_exia: (Hiccup - gotta fly)
Firstly, [ profile] greenconverses, I so totally missed your birthday like a total loser. I hope it was a good one! <3

BUT LOOK, I did that meme of yours! :D ([ profile] pkstar, your icon meme is up next!)

The One Rule: Tag 8 people. Don't refuse to do that. Don't tag who tagged you.

Tagging... [ profile] hikariblue, [ profile] kashewmoo, [ profile] link621, [ profile] februaryfour, [ profile] tylerdurdenmiko, [ profile] pergamond, [ profile] valeriebean, and [ profile] oraxia.

Of course, don't let not being tagged stop you if you wanted to fill this out! Spread the love~ :D

And on to the questions! )

And with that, I shall leave you. Because I don't know how it got to be 1:19 already but this makes me sad. D: I should consider ambling to bed before the hour is up.
ad_exia: (Peter - Bravery)

01 → If you want me to pick six of your icons, ask in this post.
02 → Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
03 → Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
04 → This will create a never-ending cycle of icon squee.

[ profile] antistar_e picked these: )

Right! So~ Weekend was relatively busy - had some work to get done, but thankfully not too much. I also vacuumed (yay!) and ran some errands - now I have Sledge's book (which I will start AFTER I've seen at least the next episode of The Pacific) and a frame for an incoming poster, which I'm hoping will arrive soon. We also gathered on Saturday night to catch up on Doctor Who - I am really, really liking this new season. I admit I didn't have high hopes, but the bar? The one that was way down by my ankles? Has been shattered. I really like the new Doctor, and I really, really like Amy. And so far the plots have been decently interesting, and... yeah. Good stuff. :Db I APPROVE.

Nathan had not seen Chronicles of Narnia (either of them!), so we remedied the first part last night before The Pacific, which was again better than I expected. Basilone's not my favorite character, and I'd seen the whole Flags Of Our Fathers business, so I really like where they went with the story instead. (And you know, I always feel kind of weird, saying stuff like that when it's a historical miniseries. But all the same, there's still a way you tell the story, and now that I've read Leckie's book I can also say that I like the way they told that story, and changed just a few things to make it better for the screen while not actually changing the facts and wow, no one wants to hear me ramble about this, do you?).

And then I actually got up today (yay!), though I STILL had to wait half an hour for the bus. But at least since I got up early I managed to get in at a decent time, and the figures I need for my meeting at two are done! Woo~ I'm going to spend the rest of the day writing (the thesis ;D) and looking for a paper to present tomorrow at extragalactic-ph. I dragged the laptop all the way here today, I'm going to use it, darn it! Plus my advisor is gone for the rest of the week, which in my head gives me license to goof off but in reality doesn't. XD Hopefully the proper one of those two will win the mental battle.

In any case, speaking of icons and Narnia, HAVE A PETER ICON. Because. PETER. <3

BUT before I go, a very Happy Birthday to [ profile] sweetkaiser, just in case you happen to see this!
ad_exia: (Joe - HI :D)
Meme time! Tagged by [ profile] perfectassassin~

1. Write your username.
2. Write your 2 favourite bands/groups of the moment.
3. Write something you ♥, aka lemme see your heart.
4. Write the name of your favourite person of all time.
5. Write the name of your recent favoured person.

Lookie here! )

Real update ideally tomorrow; gotta get the Disney pix off my camera. :D; (Not that there are a ton, but still. Illustrative purposes!
ad_exia: (New!Bones - that's just how he rolls)
From [ profile] quiddative! (Also I realized I still have a meme from [ profile] rkold I need to fill out! Gotta remember to do that one too!)

- If you are interested in doing this meme, leave me a comment saying "The blob is almighty".
- I'll respond by asking you five questions to satisfy my curiosity.
- Update your journal with the answers to my questions.
- Include this explanation and offer to ask other people questions.

1. Who's your favourite Disney character?
asjklrsnjgfuisf UM. IDK. I think I could narrow it down to Peter Pan, Mulan, and Lewis, though? :D; That is such a hard question. ;_;
2. What's your favourite land in Disney World?
Probably Tomorrowland. It has Space Mountain and the People Mover!
3. How did you get into astronomy?
Hm... that's a good question. I remember when I was in junior high I wanted to be the chief engineer of a starship, like Geordi LaForge. XD But I wasn't actually all that great at actual engineering... Then I really wanted to be an astronaut, but it wasn't like I could join the Air Force (or be an engineer, see above XD) so I decided I could go into science and be a payload specialist, and astronomy was pretty interesting. Though actually MIT has no astronomy major; I started out majoring in planetary science, then switched to physics with a minor in planetary science. And now I'm in grad school for astronomy! tl;dr - THE END. :D;
4. If you're at your desk right now, what's the closest action figure to you? XD
Hm... I think it's Bumblebee. XD Either that or Ahsoka. XD;
5. Is there a place you really want to go but have never gone to before?
Australia! Or San Francisco~

AND ALSO, as long as I'm posting:

Leave a comment asking me to photograph any aspect of
my life - favourite something, something that makes
me feel a certain way, something regular, something weird,
whatever. I'll reply back with a picture of it for you.

ALSO ALSO ALSO, Happy Birthday [ profile] februaryfour! :D
ad_exia: (BoB: It's okay - we're in a dell)
I think it may be the same temperature inside my office as outside of it. Apparently having no heat last week has made things just as unpleasant this week. I'm seriously beginning to think that 2010 is playing one big joke on me. D: I did even read something the other day about January 2nd purportedly being the worst luck day in the entire year. Yeah, you got that one right. Ah well~

Actual updates still pending, but suffice to say the Half Marathon was full of COLD and SLEET but still awesome~ Next time I'm putting all my music on my phone so I can have an iPod and a camera at the same time, because I ran by Lewis and Wilbur and Bowler Hat Guy in Epcot and you have no idea how sad I was that I had no camera! Disney afterwards was also cold but the lines were short and the hot chocolate was good. We also discovered that Winter Summerland Mini Golf is pretty fantastic, and there are no Perry the Platypus plushies (try saying that three times fast!) to be had.

Yesterday was kind of the break I shouldn't have taken but really needed. I swear, I've pretty much been on the go since I went home in December; I barely had time to check email at home and I didn't get much work done, then it was back to Gainesville for two days before the AAS in D.C. and then back to Orlando for the Half and a Disney-full weekend before returning Sunday night to fight with installing Windows 7 because it kept resetting my monitor refresh rate OUT OF RANGE in the middle of installation so I couldn't finish it. Three tries in and lots of Google searching later, I disabled the video card and finally got the silly thing installed. Eesh! Seriously, this is the second Windows install that did that to me. Microsoft, you need to get your act together and stop changing refresh rates on flatscreens while you install. For serious. D< So I stayed home yesterday and went grocery shopping and did laundry and caught up on Heroes. And here I am back at work today.

Also, It took me at least an hour today to figure out how to scan all my trip receipts into a PDF to turn in (crazy new-fangled machines) and now I'm just finishing up lunch before I get all the stuff I have to mail out and then try to do two weeks' worth of work in an afternoon. Whee~ (Or something.)

But before I go, stolen from Blanche:

India Foxtrot Yankee Oscar Uniform Charlie Alpha November Uniform November Delta Echo Romeo Sierra Tango Alpha November Delta Tango Hotel India Sierra, Charlie Oscar Papa Yankee Alpha November Delta Papa Alpha Sierra Tango Echo India Tango Tango Oscar Yankee Oscar Uniform Romeo Lima India Victor Echo Juliet Oscar Uniform Romeo November Alpha Lima.

ad_exia: (Princess & the Frog - yeah you know)
Gah, do I have a tag yet whining about how I need more icon slots? XD;

First off, I figured I'd give my quick review of The Princess & The Frog: Under here! Spoilers ahoy~ )

And now I'll end with a meme, stolen from [ profile] valeriebean! Meme: Year in Review )

Aw man, I was gonna get to that VB kinkmeme. Hm. Well, I might still be able to get started... There is no plot involved in this one, really. ::fail:: Except I have another idea for the PJO one, noooooo!


EDIT: Oh, and also, I found out today they're closing the JoAnn's that I usually go to. WHAT? BUT I HAVE COSTUMES TO MAKE. NOT COOL. DDDD: I hope the other one is staying open, I do not want to have to drive to Ocala every time I need fabric. D
ad_exia: (Phineas & Ferb - blueprints for awesome!)
So! It's been quite a week. :D; Tuesday and Wednesday was Magic Kingdom and Epcot (and Downtown Disney) with Jennie, which was tons of fun despite the crappy weather on Wednesday. We nonetheless managed to save the world from Duff Killigan and the Killer Bebes and Señor Senior Senior and son. (I gotta admit, that Kim Possible thing at Epcot is fantastic~) Also, Space Mountain is open again! They redid the line area with games to play, and now they have a digital projector, but that's really mostly it. Still we went on it three times despite the 70-minute wait each time. Totally worth it. :D Oh, Space Mountain, how I missed you!

Thursday was a do-absolutely-nothing day; there was some approximation of Thanksgiving dinner (chicken casserole, okay, but there was stuffing and mashed potatoes and corn and cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie! And strawberries and Jell-O XD;) and HSM3. This morning I dropped her off at the airport and bummed around Downtown Disney a bit before picking up some tree-decorating stuff at Target (it was kinda scary in there, but not as bad as it could have been, thank you empty-for-Thanksgiving college town) and... uh. Running, and Alien Swarm because I didn't get to see it before! Is it sad that one of the highlights of watching that was the new version of the PJO trailer? XD;; ::fail:: It was actually pretty good, though - not as horrific as I was expecting. I still think Kevin needs to be more buff, though. Oh, but CN? I saw what you did there, with Gwen's last outfit. Cute.

Oh, also, I have now seen The Guild. You may rejoice. XD; I could not stop watching it. I think Valerie knew that would be the case, though. ;D I perhaps will need a my gaming icon back, now that a chunk of the nerdiest people in the department have started up a game. Also, I require an AD&D player's handbook. (Off to Amazon...) And, following tradition, I Kai did something stupid right off the bat that got him out of commission for most of the first fight. But! I took out a goblin all by myself! With my giant sword. :D Too bad second edition doesn't have greatswords...

And lastly, I've been working on the next chapter of my PJO fic (finally!), but anytime you get Percy and Hades in the same room, things do Not Go Well. Nor do they go According To Plan, apparently, thanks guys. -_-; It's like, I don't know, getting The Monarch and Doctor Venture to have a nice little serious chat. Only I gotta admit, Percy's cooler than Doc. And, er. I suppose Hades is cooler than The Monarch, too. Y'know. XD; At least I think I have the end bit plotted out, even with my horribly crazy last-minute addition to the storyline. I can only hope it's not going too far. >>; Anyone who knows Nathan will be relieved that I will not be going with his horribly depressing suggestion, at least? XD;

Oh, and because it sounds neat! A meme! ( I actually need to fill this out for [ profile] greenconverses and [ profile] antistar_e; I've been meaning to but I don't think I'll have the brainpower until tomorrow. But I will! I swear!)

Pick a paragraph (or any passage less than 500 words) from any fanfic I've written, and comment to this post with that selection. I will then give you a DVD commentary on that snippet: what I was thinking when I wrote it, why I wrote it in the first place, what's going on in the character's heads, why I chose certain words, what this moment means in the context of the rest of the fic, lots of awful puns, and anything else that you'd expect to find on a DVD commentary track.

Lastly (for real this time), I shall leave you with tree-topper Square Pig. Because, why not?
ad_exia: (Percy - This is a pen)
Well, since I obviously looked at [ profile] greenconverses':

Anyone who looks at this entry has to post this meme and their current wallpaper on their LiveJournal. Explain in five sentences why you're using that wallpaper! Don't change your wallpaper before doing this! The point is to see what you had on it!

Under here! )

We started watching DS9 tonight, and discovered it seems to be all about the inappropriate touching. Also? Garak is totally insane. XD But we knew this, right? Also also, there is NO ONE on that show with a normal name. It's kind of entertaining; I'd never noticed before.

Have a new icon, BTW. THIS IS A PEN. Maaaaan, I need more icon slots. ;_; AND I ought to go to bed. ::zooms!::
ad_exia: (Anakin is an artist :D)
Okay, here are the pictures for that meme I did a couple days ago~

Lots of pictures ahead! )
ad_exia: (Lewis - Kool-Aid!)
You know, if I was any good at multitasking I would've had a PhD by now. HURRY UP MOPEX. D: (Also, Spitzer channel 3 and sometimes 4, why do you suck? Now I have to look into image correction for you. Grar.)

On a much happier note, a Teen Titans-tastic birthday to [ profile] alibi2014! :D (Every time I see a rerun on CN I squee and think of you~)

Also, because this did sound neat (I think I might have done something like it a while ago), thanks to [ profile] perfectassassin:

Ask me to take a picture of any aspect of my life. Be it my room, something specific in my room, some random item, something that cheers me up, or something blue and round or yellow and boxy. I'll take all pictures when I can and make a separate post with them.

asjdiafa. You know, if Anakin falls over one more time he's going to go have to sit on the Millennium Falcon with Padme. Clearly I have too many action figures on my desk. XD

It was 75 out this morning and I was so excited until I realized that I actually felt kind of cold. Oh, God, Florida. What have you done to me? ;_; (Well, actually, I'm still excited. But I need to buy new jeans. Why don't mine fit anymore? And why are they so hard to take in?)

Also, I'm sorry I seem to post way too much lately. D: You guys must be sick of me.
ad_exia: (Ben 10 - oh yeah)
ASdfjIOFJADUFIHAOFUAWR90w YES, PLZ. I NEED MORE. But I suppose I can live with a release date. That's better than nothing, right? dfjasjfjfdo trailer trailer trailer trailer trailer~

I want to go home and EAT but my mosaic is still interpolating and my Post-BCD data is still queued for staging. (In English: computers are slow and they need to hurry up!) Plus I might try to go running tonight; it's not like I have to be anywhere until 11pm. XD And I got rained on yesterday so I didn't do quite the full five miles. Hopefully I will not get rained on today. (BTW, Florida, please have nice weather tomorrow. The space shuttle needs to launch! This is what, their fifth try? D:)

Also, uh. This looked neat, so let's give this a try?

ad_exia: (MomoRyo - red)
Last, but certainly not least!

For [ profile] kashewmoo:

Fandom: Prince of Tennis
Prompt: Momo/Ryoma, popsicles on a warm day
Notes: 250 words; it somehow didn't want to be longer. I tried!
Title: Cherry-Flavored )


I was going to post pictures of my almost-finished Gwen, but none of them came out well. ::dies:: Alas; I'll just wait until it's completely done. All I have left to do are take in the skirt a bit and hem it, and find something for the tie closure on the red thing~ The lace on the font actually came out pretty well, at least! (Okay, you can have a picture of that.)

And speaking of pictures, I'd meant to post this forever ago. But I just wanted to share the particularly entertaining scene that greeted me on my desk when I got home from Europe last month:

The culprit knows who she is. ;D
ad_exia: (Setsuna - your pain)
Firstly, a happy birthday to [ profile] pergamond! :D Because we're still on the same day~

Next, one more drabble down, one to go! I probably could've waited until they were both done, but that would've made too much sense, clearly. I swear I haven't forgotten the last one! I might even give it a go tomorrow. :D;

For [ profile] asphodel:

Fandom: The Last Herald-Mage
Prompt: Vanyel/Stefen/Lendel
Notes: Somehow, if I had to make an FST for TLHM, "I Believe in You" by Evanescence would top the list. This is kind of based on that? Only short. :D; (Seriously, I could wax eloquent on it for chapters, if I dared.) 301 words.
Title: Taking Over Me )


In other words, I realized that I might actually have a life if I didn't spend so much stupid time re-writing the entirety of PJO, starring Percy and Nico. XD Dear God, make it stooooooop. (Actually, don't, as I seem to be perfectly happy in my insanity. ::dies::)
ad_exia: (Trip - pie <3)
For [ profile] cecilegrey:

Fandom: Merlin
Prompt: Merlin/Will, fire
Notes: This was actually my second idea, but the first idea didn't actually involve Will being present and I figured you might like something like this more. :D;; I think it might still feel a bit awkward, but. Here it is! 714 words.
Title: Amazing To Me )


For [ profile] hikariblue:

Fandom: Star Trek: Enterprise
Prompt: A malicious (or just tricksy) alien entity tampers with all the pie on Archer's Enterprise. Hilarity ensues~
Notes: I have no idea. XD But I hope you like it~ 500 words (check that out!).
Title: Sweet Spot )
ad_exia: (Jayne Harry - Big Damn Hero)
I bring you three more drabble-ish things in the struggle to complete ten prompts. XD

For [ profile] torasetsuna:

Fandom: Firefly
Prompt: Mal/Wash, the Cowboy Bebop episode Toys in the Attic
Notes: Watch me fail at Whedon-esque witty banter! Jayne saves the day~ 426 words.
Title: It )


For [ profile] pergamond:

Fandom: Prince of Tennis
Prompt: Atobe/Eiji, a romantic date sorting through Atobe's wardrobe
Notes: Totally not as awesome as your not-a-drabble, but I hope it amuses! 439 words.
Title: Lilac and Lace )


For [ profile] link621:

Fandom: Prince of Tennis
Prompt: Pillar Pair/Ryoma fail
Notes: I think this is everyone fail, but that includes Ryoma, right? 676 words.
Title: Just Passing By )

Aaaaaaalmost... time to leave! Please do not thunderstorm on me when I want to run! (Actually, it looks sunny out there now. Win!)
ad_exia: (Brock & Doc - splatter)
So I finally got off my butt (or, rather, on it XD) and started getting those drabbles done from that drabble meme I advertised way back when. I'm really sorry it's taken me this long. D: And of course I think I'm going to do this in chunks, so here are the first three (not exactly in the order I was given prompts) out of ten that I was given.

As a note, these generally fail as drabbles in the strictest sense - I really seem incapable of writing anything incredibly short, so they're all a couple hundred words at least. No novels though, I promise!

For [ profile] noctaval (whose format for posting these I have also stolen :D;):

Fandom: Star Wars
Prompt: Obi/Ani, unresolved sexual tension
Notes: I think I may have failed at this, in both making it short and in making it actually UST-y... Buuut I suppose I could always just write you more and try again. XD 391 words.
Title: Midnight )


For [ profile] auroraprimavera:

Fandom: Merlin
Prompt: Merin/Arthur
Notes: Not very shippy, I suppose, but it’s oh-so-heavily implied. :D; 363 words.
Title: Ticklish )


For [ profile] alibi2014:

Fandom: Percy Jackson & the Olympians
Prompt: Percy/Annabeth
Notes: ... I don't know. XD This was supposed to be totally different, but then this happened. ::fail:: 611 words.
Title: The Simple Solution )

More to come later this week!
ad_exia: (HP - Dude)
1. Reply to this post with 'Icons!', and I will pick five of your icons.
2. Make a post (including the meme info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will - allegedly - create a never-ending cycle of icon glee.

I will only take requests for this until Tuesday or so, since I can't promise a lot of internet activity past that. ^^; Unless you don't mind waiting a while for me to choose icons~

Anyway, [ profile] noctaval picked the following: )

I hope I did that properly! :D;

I really should get to bed. D:
ad_exia: (Rusty Venture - Oh yeah lookit me)
First, a meme! Because I commented on [ profile] noctaval's:

The first TEN people to comment in this post get to request a drabble of any pairing/character of their choosing from me. In return, they have to post this in their journal, regardless of their ability level. If you absolutely can't write, I don't see why you wouldn't be able to offer drawings or icons or something instead. (Nobody wants to do that last bit, so just ignore it. Nothing in return required! :D)

1. [ profile] auroraprimavera - Merlin/Arthur
2. [ profile] noctaval - Obi/Ani, unresolved sexual tension
3. [ profile] link621 - Pillar Pair/Ryoma fail

Spent most of this weekend sleeping and attempting to work on Nina. I ran out of white thread (oops D:) around 9pm tonight, and I didn't feel like running out to WalMart that late since I hadn't even eaten dinner yet, so I will try to do that tomorrow before Heroes. But I got various parts of the costume done, so while I'm not quite where I wanted to be by the end of the weekend, I'm getting there. I realized I can use little!Subaru's pants for Videl, and I swear the rest of that I really can just buy, so I'm less stressed about getting that done which gives me more time to concentrate on Nina. I think I can do this.

It really didn't help that I slept in until 2:30 today when I actually meant to get up at 10. Clearly I, uh. Needed the sleep? (I'm never really convinced of this, though. I seem to be able to sleep FOREVER without really needing sleep. XD) I did get a little bit of writing done this weekend; maybe another 1,000 words or so on my second!epic!Percy/Nico fic, which is less than I'd hoped but at least it's something? I also got about three paragraphs into that alternateuniverse!Ben 10 fic, which I am trying to convince myself does not have to be EPICLY LONG or anything like my first one. XD I think this one really will work out short and sweet. Here's hoping~

To do this week: CLEAN OMG, continue working on Nina, get some writing done, pack and set VCR for the stuff I'm missing this weekend (since I'm missing The Secret Saturdays and the premiere of Jonas shut up you all should be glad I didn't buy those Demi Lovato concert tickets like I was thinking about while I'm gone this weekend). And I also have to book the hotel for Disney for when my grandmother's here, and also see about getting a reservation for tea while I'm at it. Plus, haircut on Tuesday! I really need one. D: (Incidentally, this is the second time I've called about a haircut and found out the person I was going to didn't work there anymore. XD)

That's really about it. Why is it Sunday night already? D: Time to go read some Watchmen and force myself to bed in half an hour~
ad_exia: (Violet - inventor girl)
I should probably be doing something useful, like writing, but I really don't feel like it. I did, however, start my fic for the current [ profile] merlin_flashfic challenge. I think I have 'till Saturday - I should check! Either way it should get done tomorrow. It's not like it really needs much plot... XD Incidentally, I realize I like to blame a lot of things on Gaius, ahaha~ And I have a pretty good idea what my next contest entry will be about... now I just have to write it and get it in the mail by the 15th!

I did spend my early evening putting Drew's bodysuit together - well, the orange part. It actually went pretty well, though I have stupid hips and was afraid for a while it might not fit. XD I have to take the sides in a bit on the top, but otherwise I think it will work okay~ I would take a picture, but it looks kind of lame hanging on the hanger. XDD Also, orange bodysuits are extremely unforgiving ::cries:: Hopefully the belt will help. >>; All the same, I should probably eat healthy for the next week. XD And remember to do situps tonight. Next up is Jennie's Lara top though, before I work on Drew any more! And I also need to get that BeVin exchange thing done, but at least I have until the 20th... Gotta find a night next week to break into my office late at night to do that. XD

So, random Trek trivia of the day: we were watching "The Perfect Mate" last night and the empathic metamorph, Kamala, LOOKED SO FAMILIAR. It drove me crazy all night, and into the morning; I finally looked her up on IMDB and guess who? JEAN GREY. XD Everyone clearly has been on Star Trek.

And I don't think a lot of people will do this, but I figured I should try? Write down all the dumb stuff I say XD:

D: I feel like I may have had more useful things to say, but I cannot think of them. But! I am the virtual co-owner of [ profile] alibi2014's bread for the duration of Passover, which is kind of awesome. XD
