 Adorable fanart has inspired me! The artist has requested no reposting of their work, so just check out the source link here for an insanely cute drawing of Hau and Gladion on a Disney vacation.

I always love the idea of real world AUs where characters visit Disney parks, so this is just too tempting to use as fic inspiration!

EDIT: Fixed the link!

Getting into gear!

Going to start my entry with the question, this time, rather than end with it:

What is your favorite (fiction) book? Or even your top three? 

I'll admit, I have something to gain from this: I'm looking for more to read, and I'd love recommendations! It does go beyond that, though. I'm very curious to see what books appeal to which people I've talked to on this site. I like looking for patterns in these things.

That said... My rekindled interest in reading has been further fueled by today's email from NaNoWriMo. November is just over a month away, and despite my previous acknowledgment that I am unlikely to ever finish a full-length, involved work - particularly fanfic - I'm giving it a go, as usual. I've yet to win NaNo - this will be my sixth year participating, but only my third or fourth really going for it - but still enjoy the experience every time. The community is great, although given that I usually get far more involved with my local NaNo community than the official site's, and my region is currently without an ML, I'm not sure how much that'll be a factor this year.

Anyway, I'm hoping to win this year, but expecting it less than ever: My fiancee will be visiting from the 19th of November to the 1st of December this year. (My first Thanksgiving with her; very exciting!) I also don't know what I'll be writing. Probably fic, sure, but what fandom? I'm not sure. Pokemon is probably the safest bet, because I always go back to Pokemon and there's so much source material to work with. Of course, there's always my beloved Disney. Who knows what movie will catch my interest in November? And Steven Universe has a powerful pull; I'd love to write for it.

I might pull a NaNo Rebel this year, too... Either by writing multiple (though probably connected) pieces, or by continuing a fic or series I've already started. Or even both, maybe - I could continue the Incidents at Temple University series, or turn my current Pokemon WIP into a series of short fics.

As we were walking out the door last night so I could go to work, my mom was hollering at me to clean up my room because she watched something walk through my door into my room. I probably would have died happy never knowing this, because I'm still lowkey freaked out about the twitchy shadow figure I saw in my brother's room, and I don't know if this is the same entity or not.

I found a stick insect outside at the corner, hanging off of the sign for the restaurant behind the house.

"Emoji spells aren't real magic. The witches of old used candles and nature to do their magic,"

Yeah, well the witches of old only had candles and nature at their disposal, and if they didn't have those, I'm sure they'd have found something else to use. Magic is adaptive, and these days we have technology and cell phones and if someone's magic uses emojis, then let them use fucking emojis. An emoji spell is just another type of sigil, which, I may add, is a relatively new form of magic that you traditionalists seem to love so much.

First off, since I am trying to separate out the evidence from the paranormal investigation on my computer; I am stuck trying to use windows movie maker to try and cut out these clips, and windows movie maker appears to be quite unstable and it keeps freezing and crashing on me.

On other words, I just spent thirty minutes trying to separate out a twenty-two second clip, upon which a small, intelligently moving orb appears to zip around and land on the MEL meter, sit there for a second and then fly off again.

So I get this clip separated out, and now I can play back the clip and blow it up to get a closer look.

And it was a fly.

Dear Creator,

Happy spooky Halloween season... Says the girl who signed up for all treats. Not so spooky, me.

Anyway, thank you very much for whatever you'll be creating for me! I love these kind of exchanges and can't wait for this one to get underway.

Like I always do, I'll start off with some general DNWs, and then I'll get into fandom-specific likes and dislikes. As always, everything but the DNWs are just suggestions!

  • Sad endings
  • Explicit sexual content
  • Non-Con/Dub-Con
  • Incest
  • Genderbends
  • Body Horror
  • Gore of any kind
  • Crackfic
  • Character Bashing
  • Non-Canon Character Death
  • Drug Use (unless canon)

Thank you so much,

The other night, my mom was asleep and three times, she heard someone walk down the hallway. She thought it was my brother, but upon investigation, it turns out he was sound asleep in his room.

I don't know what it is about that hallway, but daaaaammmmmn.

i'm scary

My store had our remodel in 2015, and the entire construction crew was terrified of me for no reason. Now, 2003-era Spoony (you know, the Mall Gothâ„¢ era) would have been proud, but seeing as how I am no longer a Mall Gothâ„¢, I was a little confused, albeit a little amused.

Apparently, the other day, I scared the shit out of the guys hanging up lights for the restaurant behind the house. I'm lowkey embarrassed that they both heard and witnessed this, but at the same time, I'm laughing.

I've mentioned the smoke alarm in the kitchen before. The other morning, I was cooking pasta and it just went insane. Would not shut up. I would stand there and wave a box of crackers at it, it would go quiet. I would stop fanning it for two seconds, and it's wailing again. I think I waved this box of crackers at it for thirty minutes; my shoulders are still sore, and my arms still feel like they're going to fall off. Just detach like a old barbie doll.

So naturally, being frustrated and unstable, I was screaming at it like a banshee.

The box of crackers eventually failed, and I grabbed a paint tray and started waving that at the smoke alarm; it did work a little bit better and stopped it from screaming a little quicker, but the moment I stopped fanning it, it would still start back up again. Now the difference between the box of crackers and the paint tray I was using was about ten inches, and I swung a little too high, and knocked the cover right off of the smoke detector.

Seeing my opportunity, I decided I was going to knock the battery out to silence it until I could do a thorough deep clean of the stove and the oven, so I was looking for something to knock the battery out. I have a tree pruner outside, so I stomped out of the house, completely unaware that there were people out there, and went to grab it, realized it was wet, and then threw it back onto the porch. I eventually knocked the battery out with a spatula.

So yeah, now they won't even look at me without running off.

On a more paranormal note:

I don't know if this was the same day or not, but the boys said they heard distinct voices coming from my back yard. I've mentioned before in a video that there is an entity of some sort in the backyard (maybe more in the general area because I do not think it's out there all the time and I have felt it in the house before), but it's been quiet and inactive as of late because I think, when we moved in, it was just curious as to who we were and has been since leaving us alone. But the boys even did a full circle of the house, and nobody was out there.

I... May have gotten a job yesterday? The interview at the coffee place was seriously just 'what are your availability hours and can you get here reliably?'. It would be awesome to be working outside the house again, but I'm also kind of nervous about getting along with my co-worker. Just an anxiety thing, though.

I've been looking into healthy eating, (again... Finally!), and I'm trying to plan out a nutritious shopping list. I'm also looking to get back into a good exercise routine as it cools down a bit, weather-wise. Mostly walking and Tai Chi (the latter via youtube instructional videos) for a start; might get back to the gym and work on some of the weight-lifting kind of machines eventually.

And then there's writing. I haven't written much yet this month, although I'm working on a piece of Pokemon fic that centers around original characters. I really love the characters I've come up with, too, so it might be a step towards original fiction featuring these guys. I personally never have valued original fiction over fanfiction, but let's face it, only one of these things will make me money. :P

Of course, reading is a huge part of being able to write well, at least for me. My reading goals aren't particularly lofty right now, though. >-> I bought one of the Descendants: School of Secrets books because it's about Lonnie, Jay, and Jordan - three of my faves! - and that's aimed at a pre-teen to early teen audience. I just hope it will be a good step into reading more substantial things? And also that it'll be a fun read!

I'm taking a two-session writing class with my local adult education program, too, and looking forward to that a lot.

...You know, half the times I write an entry in here, I think of the film version of The Princess Dairies: "And then I realized how many stupid times a day I use the word 'I'."

Sure, it's different when you're writing a journal entry, even one to share online. It's very different. Still, it got me thinking about including questions in these entries. Conversation starters. It's always fun to hear about others' lives.

So, what goals are you all working on lately? Have you read anything good, or created anything you're particularly proud of?

I'm going semi-friends only, so I'm going to grant access to those of you that don't have it already here in the next few hours; i'm on mobile right now.

:EDIT: Access granted to everyone. If I missed you and you still don't have access to my locked posts, please let me know.

I've gotten into the habit of checking for new episode airdates of Steven Universe at least twice a week... Siiiiigh. Now I know how those who've watched the show from the start have felt with all these hiatuses. Ah, well. They have to come eventually... I hope.

My brother sent my an Etsy gift certificate for my birthday, and an absolutely stunning Blue Pearl doll is coming my way soon! The doll is customized from a Monster High model, and I'll definitely link to the inevitable instagram pictures.

My birthday was really nice, too! I went with some family to one of those Japanese restaurants where you keep ordering sushi by checking off a piece of paper, and you just pay a flat price? It was delicious.

On an actual serious note, if anyone is in a hurricane-affected area, or knows someone who is, please know that you are in my thoughts.

I've been going through the video evidence from the investigations and the background noise from the camera makes it sound like creepy music has already been layered over the video and it's eerie.

Hello Trick or Treater! Thanks in advance for writing me a story in one of these awesome fandoms! All prompt ideas are suggestions only, so you don’t have to follow them if you don’t want to. If for whatever reason you need to ask me a question, I have anon asks enables on my Tumblr and will get back to you as soon as possible.

I like plotty fic, ship fic, character studies, fluff, most AUs, romance, BDSM and dub-con.

I don’t like gore/detailed descriptions of violence, major character death, rape, infidelity, a/b/o or watersports, so please stay away from that.

So I've been getting a very good workout on my arms and shoulders as of late because the smoke alarm in the kitchen is super sensitive and the burners only have to be on for five minutes for it to start wailing so yeah, I've spent the last thirty minutes fanning the smoke detector with a box of crackers to get it to shut the fuck up.
