intermission - study aid!

Incidentally, I've stumbled on the best song for looping while studying, ever. Be warned, it may or may not stay in your head forever. (Also ten seconds of slightly NSFW, thanks to Shizu-chan's wet dream. >_>)

It also comes with the cutest Shizaya video! ~(=^>w<^)

I don't even -

This is an exercise in Creative Writing.

The prompts are, "zombie apocalypse in Yugoslavia," "kayak trip," "angry mother in law," and "Will Smith."

What is this crap? )

intermission - life, what life?

So, some of you might remember my Visual Arts project from last year, the three framed gif. Well, I made it better! :'D

Fatal Frame!

In other words, I need to get a life, instead of spending an afternoon doing useless photo editing like this.

But if anyone wants/needs the Fatal Frame 3 viewfinder symbols and want the one I have for this camera, feel free to grab the png here! I might as well share it around. (^ o^)/ The viewfinder frame was just ripped off a screenshot, and the actual size of it isn't really that big, but the png is here if anyone wants it.

intermission - obligatory "I'm alive!" message

For those who are not part of my friends list and can't see my more recent postings, I've not upped and died! (= V=)b

"The Sound of Cherry Blossoms" has just been sapping all my energy, and it's now a monster at 57000~ words. OTL I'm slowly wading towards the end of this, guys, and then I'll have time to work on everything else!

intermission - this is why I love being a cosplayer

I went to Mini-Comi alone today, expecting to just take a round of the place and then leave - because, as we all know, Orihara Izaya does not have friends, and apparently neither do I (or well, at least those who were free to join me in my crazy).

Only, I was presently surprised when I did see several of my friends there. One of them was conveniently dressed up in a dress shirt and vest with dark pants, and in her Bag of Wonders, she actually had a blond wig. (We've learn not to questions the contents of her bag. It's just better not to.) It might have been the most impromptu cosplay idea between the both of us, but she became my Shizuo for the rest of the con.

That apparently means making inappropriate innuendos and implying that Izaya and Shizuo slept together. =Db We actually did get asked for photos (which surprised me), the first few photos being just me hugging her with my flickblade out, and then the later ones had her grabbing my throat and pushing me away. It's surprisingly less uncomfortable than it sounds... No, really, it isn't that bad.

Anyhow, the highlight had to be how we managed to demonstrate Izaya's and Shizuo's relationship of "Whatever Izaya does, it goes back to bite Shizuo's butt" without even trying: when I scared away a seagull, it went for her instead.

It was quite fun, all things considered. My Shizuo and I parted on the bus with me going, "Are you going to visit me tonight~?" and her replying, "Oh, yeah, I'll send a vending machine into your house. :Db"

translation - DRRR/P3 Parody Comic

I did some translating, mostly because my dad and my writing was driving me nuts.

It's just as it says on the tin: Durarara/Persona 3 crossover parody, here! The author's note on the first page took me an ungodly amount of time to figure out, and a lot of flailing besides (thank you for sharing my misery, [livejournal.com profile] zweilous!), but it's all good! :Db

As always, if you noticed something wrong with my translation, please tell me!

Fanfic - Durarara - It Was Common Knowledge That Culture Festivals Were For Crossdressing

Title: It Was Common Knowledge That Culture Festivals Were For Crossdressing [side IZAYA]
Characters/Pairing: Izaya, Shizuo (lots of UST but when isn't there UST between them?)
Genre/Rating: PG
Word Count: 4000
Notes: Inspired by "I told you it was a bad idea" p4-6, Izaya in a maid costume! However, this only exists because [livejournal.com profile] marionettejack insists that a foot to the face is the only way to remedy such insolence. XD Sister fic to [side SHIZUO].
Summary: The culture festival was supposed to be the highlight of the year.

It was something Izaya could easily see the reasoning behind. )

intermission - distractions are wonderful things



My friend is a horrible, horrible enabler and plot bunnies come back from beyond the grave, along with other things. )

Long story short, it will probably be a few days before I will have anything posted. BUT IT SHALL BE DONE.

ETA: As I said, the three page parody comic, translated! The originals are also up; if anyone finds anything wrong with my translations please tell me!

intermission - back from the dead [hopefully]

Sorry for the complete silence and the lack of correspondence, everyone. OTL I kind of just left for vacation without realizing that the Internet in Hong Kong would be abysmal as to almost send me to tears, or that all my muses would desert me and my plot bunnies die from a plane ride. Maybe the place just sucks creative energy? It's rather sad.

Anyhow, I've only managed to recover from being a pile of blah just last night, and have a DRRR fic completed and awaiting editing. I will prevail against the cat writer's block! Please bear with me until then.

Cheers!

Happy Birthday, Izaya!

To celebrate Izaya's birthday, there is a semi-decent cake!

"Happy Birthday to me~!" )

Lemon cake with chocolate frosting~ And for those who are wondering, yes, wearing that coat in this kind of weather is horrid, even if you're inside and out of the sun. =/ No fic to accompany this, sadly, because I'm out of ideas and are plagued with catblocks writer's block.

ETA:
Also, have a vending machine! )

intermission - printed book!

I ordered a proof copy of my Nano book on the 3rd, and I really wasn't expecting it to come until next week. I haven't been so happy about being wrong before! (This will probably be the first and last time I'll be happy about being wrong, haha. XD)

A little advertising is in order, I suppose. For those who aren't familiar with NaNoWriMo, once you finish writing the minimum of 50 000 words and win the challenge, you will receive a coupon code at CreateSpace that could be used towards a free proof copy of your book. Snail-mail shipping is also free! There are draw backs to this: you have to edit and typeset the whole book (150~pages for a 5.5 in x 8.5 in~ book), create the layout and graphics for cover, and write the summary and author biography all by yourself. Of course, you could get other people to do it for you, or buy a program for the typesetting, but both options are really pricey (I think it was $150~ US for the program? I forget).

Shiny book is shiny! )

Overall, I'm very pleased with this! I'm a bit miffed at the fact that the top edges were somewhat squished from the packaging, but otherwise it's all very pristine. I've only just flipped through it though; haven't got much time to do anything with Finals coming up next week, and my wrist not allowing me to type for longer than ten minutes.

ETA: The art on the cover was snagged from エレファン.

Public Service Announcement

Reposting the links [livejournal.com profile] zebion found, in hopes that this will reach more people. Copy and pasted because I'm mentally and emotionally drained at the moment. I hope everyone is okay, and that those who are affected can recover quickly.

Links to where you can donate money to help Japan:

Doctors Without Borders
Peace Winds America
Shelter Box
Save the Children
Global Giving
International Red Cross and Red Crescent
(DREF option)

Charity Navigator and z100 both have several more links to places accepting donations to help Japan.

For those of you who are short on money but still want to help out, Free Rice is a game where for every right answer you get, they'll donate rice to people in need in Japan.

You can keep up with news of what's happening at BBC News. They've been very thorough in keeping up with what's happening and have been very informative throughout this whole ordeal.

If you have friends or family over in the affected area, Google is hosting a People Finder. It's far from fully compiled but it's worth a look or post for information just in case.
---
And for those who are in Canada, you can text the word ASIA to 30333 to make a one-time donation of $5 to Japan's disaster relief.

Japan Times has news updates as well.

There's also these links, pulled from the Pandora Hearts comm:
