kowaiyoukai: (Homicide Frank/Tim explanation)
...and do other stuff too! And not having a working copy of ANYTHING at my house is driving me IN-FUCKING-SANE!! I've been DYING to vid Homicide. AND I CAN'T. ARGH!! Not that anyone but me cares or would watch it, but the point is that I should be able to. ARGLEFUFFERS. *headdesk*

So some of my icons are randomly deciding to hide from me. That's all right. I'll find them. I'LL FIND THEM ALL.

I've been meta-ing random stuff using notepad, but I think I might cry if I have to do that anymore.

Fandom schedule: finish Homicide s4, SPN (get up-to-date), finish Xena, finish X-Men: Evolution, finish The Hunger Games series.

I'm going to make na attempt to copy all my fic to alternate files to try and work on them at some later point. IDEK tho. It might not work. It might also screw up the format, but I can fix that with time and patience. Hmm.

TTYL flist. ILU all. ♥

kowaiyoukai: (The Authority midnighter looks hot in le)
So now that my paid account has renewed, I can have an extra five userpics!! YAY!! This is AWESOME news since I desperately need to have more icons for newer (and older) fandoms.

I just finished season 1 of Homicide: Life on the Streets, and HOMG it is AMAZING!!!!! Like, I-need-to-inject-the-rest-of-the-show-into-my-viens good. I am really feeling it. I'd like to see Tim Bayliss and Frank Pembleton get together, and I got a semi-spoiler that Tim's bi so it's POSSIBLE, but we shall see. But there's like... NO FIC. Or vids. Or icons. OR ANYTHING. And THAT would be why I HATE being so late to the party.

I'm three episodes from the end of Xena (O.M.G.) and half a season away from the end of X-Men: Evolution. So, really, the fact that I haven't posted any fic is all a matter of PERSPECTIVE, since I've been watching all this other fandom stuff.

I will NEVER get tired of the expression "I swing both Rays." EVER. I don't care that I don't ACTUALLY like both (I'm a Fraser/Kowalski whore), but come on. THE EXPRESSION. \o/

Um, that's it. No fic today either. Please don't send assassins after me at my place of residence? Work would be better. :D
kowaiyoukai: (SPN jensen yes!)
OK, flist, perhaps all of your gorgeous, intelligent people can help me. I'm trying to find an artist who'd be willing to draw a tribal-esque (or sketchy) multi-fandom tattoo for me. It would most like be a leg sleeve (probably). The fandoms might change, but right now they're Star Trek, Supernatural, Due South, Stargate Atlantis, Harry Potter, Batman, Kingdom Hearts, and Naruto. It should be someone who can do really strong, really clear line art--preferably black and white.

Here's one example of something similar to what I mean: http://tidus-902000.deviantart.com/art/Final-Fantasy-VII-10th-104467049. This one's not as clean-cut as I'd like, but still: http://besttatto99.blogspot.com/2011/01/batman-tattoosm-kissing.html.

So, IDK. If anyone knows anyone who's willing to work with me on this, PLEASE LET ME KNOW!! I've been looking around for a willing artist, but it's REALLY hard. *headdesk*
kowaiyoukai: (Disney Gaston men kissing)
I am in DESPERATE NEED of completing some fic. Like, some one-shots that have quick payoff or something. But ALAS, apparently I am INCAPABLE of writing anything smaller than 10 GAZILLION words long. IDEK. *headdesk*

In further news, I HATE OPEN OFFICE. Srsly? Who the fuck can use that program?! That white screen gives me an enormous headache whenever I try to use it. So, for the time being, I've been using notepad. NOTEPAD, okay? Notepad. FML.

I think I should really try to just suck it up b/c if not I may die of lack of fanfic. Since my comp at home now doesn't open fic I saved from the internet, I am living in a total fic-less void of DOOM. I've managed to convert some MHT files to HTML, which makes them open-able, but that's about as far as I can get, b/c then you get things like a mash-up of HTML code and a word or two. Sigh.

OK, I've got to go do RL stuff now b/c life continues to FAIL and require my attention. Stupid life. Doesn't the world know I've got fic to write? I MEAN SRSLY NAO.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, JOHNNY CASH!! John Sheppard's love for you makes you worth my time. ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

kowaiyoukai: (Xena Callisto life is agonizing glory)
Yes, I'm posting. There was disaster in my life (water damage thanks to an idiot upstairs neighbor who attached a hose to a sink -- SRSLY WTF) and then more disaster (my computer broke DDDDX), but I'm actually doing OK right now. Not that any of you care at all about that. :P

I've decided not to post Apogee until I have about another 100 pages or so done sequentially from where I'm at now. After thinking it over, it really works out better this way. I'd rather not take a long break again. I really should've just finished it before I started posting, but I got excited. Stupid me.

I'm also almost finished watching Xena. LOLWTF I know. But still. Perhaps worth a mention?

I really need a better time-management system. And to get online every day. Or at least get the internet at my house, I mean REALLY.

ALSO: would anyone be willing to help me on a long-term original novel? I need general opinions, that sort of thing. I'm sick of making money by working retail--I need to be a paid author!! *headdesk* It's urban fantasy, FYI. Just let me know. I need some honest feedback about my stuff, and opinions about characters, plots, etc. YES.

ALSO: I am really working on going to some conventions this year and getting one or two more tattoos. WE SHALL SEE.

I still love you all, even if you have forgotten me. ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
kowaiyoukai: (Xena Callisto life is agonizing glory)
And that's a fact. I'm here again! See?! I meant it about trying to get online more! We'll see how it goes.

I've got to save a bunch of fics and stuff and reply to comments because people were AWESOME and rec'd me stuff when I asked. THANK YOU, FLIST. This will not be forgotten. *loves upon*

I think my goal today is to save Pyro/Iceman movieverse stuff. Because "Overture" by [livejournal.com profile] wax_jism has eaten my mind. But also? Like It's Quidditch has taken a place in my mind, and I've been humming it ALL DAY LONG. That, and "By Way of Sorrow" by Lucy Kaplansky, which SOMEBODY made an EPICLY AMAZING Jack/Daniel vid to, but they didn't put credits in the vid. And I forgot where I saved it from yesterday. Ah, well.

I'll be around until about 8:30-ish. XD

EDIT: Fixed the link!

kowaiyoukai: (SGA McShep the love of your fucking life)
OMG, have you guys seen this fic "Observations" by [livejournal.com profile] anon_j_anon? It's got 262 chapters! TWO HUNDRED AND SIXTY TWO FUCKING CHAPTERS!! >O<;; I am in a state of fucking epic shock. Also, sadness, b/c there's no dl file and I don't have the time to load and save 262 internet pages. So I guess I will never read this Spork epic of love. DDDX

I'm getting kicked off and I still need fics and vids!! And art, icons, and fanmixes!! DAMMIT. *stomps foot*

So, can anyone rec really great fandom stuff for any of these pairings: Spork, FrayK, McShep, Fawkes/Hobbes, or Xena/Gabrielle? I REALLY WANT DADT MCSHEP FIC. Is there a rec list somewhere? OH PLEASE PLEASE FLIST ASSIST ME AND I'LL LOVE YOU FOREVER.

kowaiyoukai: (Star Trek Chris/Zach cuddle)
And also attempting to catch up on internetz things. I'm slogging through my 1,137 unread e-mails (DDDX) and replying to LJ, FB, FFN, YT, and twitter posts and comments. I'm going to try and do this for the next few days until I'm caught up. It's my goal to be around more and active online this year! *fistpump*

So if you get replies from me to messages that you sent in like, uh, February, no worries. You can ignore them. I'm just getting to everything now. *headdesk*

Also, I must get more fic, vids, icons, and fanmixes for McShep, FrayK, and Arthur/Eames. There's like nothing new on my home computer now! EPIC FAIL. So we'll fix that today.
kowaiyoukai: (DN raito writing)
IDK. It all seems so ridiculous to me. I mean, pay hundreds-thousands of dollars for editors, ISBN, cover art, blah, blah blah, etc and then you get a small percentage of royalties. How can you even guarantee that what you earn back is going to be anywhere near what you put into it in the first place? And how can soemone who is poor, like me, get any kind of money to even begin to try self-publushing?

On the flip side, I've been told so many opposing things about agents. Some want money upfront, some only get paid if the book sells. Some are willing to work around your schedule, some want you to work around theirs. And so on. I just think I'm too annoyed with it all.

I would just love to finish my original, make it a PDF file, and sell it to people for $5 a pop. That's it. Is that too much to ask for, really?

What do you guys think? What's better? Or, would you actually buy a PDF file of a book for $5? Or does anyone have any really genius ideas? Because that would be AWESOME.

AS FOR EVERYTHING ELSE: Yes, I'm still writing Apogee and other fic. No, I'm not posting any today. Yes, I'm still watching shows and playing catch-up with video games, TV, movies, books, and comics. No, I'm not up to date in anything yet. I did just start Felicity, and I checked wikipedia to see who she ends up with, and I'll probably stop watching because I LOVE Noel and Ben's an asshole with no redeeming qualities whatsoever. OK. That's all. :D
kowaiyoukai: (SPN wincest forever)
I just found out Satoshi Kon died! Oh my God. That is ridiculous. He's a popular anime director, for those of you not in the know. http://www.nypress.com/blog-7137-rip-satoshi-kon-(1963-2010).html

Also, I've just heard about this Tom Hardy movie Tinker, Tailor, Solider, Spy coming out in 2011 that's also starring Benedict Cumberbatch. Um... YAY EAMES AND BBC!SHERLOCK AS SPIES!! Gary Oldman's in it too. SIRIUS!! ♥

OMG JUST STUMBLED ACROSS X-Men: First Class, also in 2011. 2001 is going to ROCK for fandom movies. CHECK IT OUT. I AM SO EXCITED. \o/ \o/ \o/

OK going to save more pics for my epic tattoo now. TTYL. ♥

SUPERNATURAL S6 STARTS TONIGHT!!!!!!! YAAAAAAAYYY!!!! But I'm not watching it b/c I don't have TV so nobody tell me anything!! SPOILERS WILL BE MET WITH DEATH. KTHXBI.

EDIT: [livejournal.com profile] ladydeth12 sent [livejournal.com profile] siriuslyyellow and me an e-card!! Read it here for awesome!! ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
kowaiyoukai: (SPN wincest forever)
They're taking down TxtLJ?!?! OH NOES!!1! Now how will I know if anyone replies to my posts? DISASTER.

Also, my tattoos are almost done in my head! I just need to finish the fireworks files and then edit them a bit to suit my individual needs. YAYZ. \o/

Also! I'm editing a moogle tattoo for [livejournal.com profile] siriuslyyellow. YAY AGAIN. :D

ALSO. Apogee is not getting posted tomorrow unless another fifty hours are added to tonight.

kowaiyoukai: (Avatar four elements)
So, maybe I'm way behind everyone else due to lack of internet, but WOW, fans are doing AMAZING things with Inception visuals and manips! I was looking through some, specifically fanmix covers, and can you say HOLY FUCKING SHIT?!?!! This shit is AWESOME!! Here's a few examples. But click on a few different pretty ones to see even MORE art! \o/

I DID NOT SEE RESIDENT EVIL 4. More's the pity. My poorness stopped me. I did go out to eat because Erin paid for [livejournal.com profile] siriuslyyellow and me. YAY! And no, I didn't finish [livejournal.com profile] siriuslyyellow's present in time, but I gave it to her half-finished and she loved it. :D \o/

PLEA FOR INTERVIEWS!! Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] christycorr, I've now discovered keepvid! The sad part of this news is that I really can't find any of the vids I've been wanting to dl. Mainly, I'm looking for interviews between actors I ship (either them or the characters they play) and outtakes, stuff like that. So, um, if you know of any good URLs for gathering that sort of thing, please link me! RDJude and Holmes/Watson would be good, so would Paul Gross and CKR or FrayK, McShep and Joe/David, Arthur/Eames and JGLTH, Spork and Pinto, ETC. ETC. ETC. REMEMBER YOU LOVE ME. *headdesk*

Also, regarding my ongoing quest for awesome tattoos: what about the 15th pic down on this page, the one that says "You're dirty and you're sweet, you know you're everything to me"? Not the words, though, just the upside-down cards that spell out LOVE? I think that pic would ROCK!! It'd be perfect for so many fandoms too!! What say you, flist?


What is this re-post shenanigans? What does this mean, exactly? Also, what is this LJ drama going on now? Mods are un-flocking posts? That's full of fail.

I'll be dl-ing Arthur/Eames fanmixes while I browse LJ now. YAY. ♥
kowaiyoukai: (CM Reid evil twin)
Well... I AM THOUGH. *headdesk*

I still haven't finished [livejournal.com profile] siriuslyyellow's birthday present. And I have to give it to her TOMORROW. DDDD: I'm telling you people, being a twin is more stress than it's worth. I'll work on it more tonight.

ALSO! The last time I posted Apogee was September 25, 2009. This is truly terrible. I'd like to say I'll update before it hits the year mark, but... well, just look at the subject line! I AM TERRIBLE. Kick me if you must.

Luckily, I'm off on Friday AND Saturday! YAY!! This NEVER happens to me. So I'm hanging out with RL people to celebrate my mid-late-20s-ness. SADLY. But, hey, free food and movies are ALWAYS good. \o/

OK, enjoy the weekend everyone! I may check back tomorrow. But I'll be seeing Resident Evil 4, OH HECK YES. ♥
kowaiyoukai: (Inception Arthur/Eames chair kick)
HAS EVERYONE SEEN TOM HARDY NAKED YET?!! Because if not, you know, you really should. Also here!

Read Hyperbole and a Half's This Why I'll Never Be An Adult. ♥

[livejournal.com profile] bookshop's Inception post is basically accurate for everyone I've talked to. Except, of course, I ignored the Cobb/Mal and focused on the Arthur/Eames my first time around. My second time is when I noticed the epic het. What can I say? I'm a slasher at heart, first and foremost. \o/

Also, I am now convinced that I will never be able to escape fics I owe people, thanks to the return of [livejournal.com profile] bloodsorrow who used to be someone else but is still the same person I owe a Gundam Wing fic to. EPIC FAIL, SELF. EPIC FAIL. I am never writing that fic like ever. Sorry, man. I suck.

... but really, who cares about everything but the first two links? I KNOW I REALLY DON'T.
kowaiyoukai: (SGA McShep kissing love)
I need to get my hands on Batman: Thrillkiller, Batman: A Death in the Family, Batman: Gotham by Gaslight, Batman: Blind Justice, Batman: Dark Victory, Batman: The Cult, and Batman: Year One. I stumbled across IGN's 25 Greatest Batman Graphic Novels article and it really made me want to catch up.

In other news, what's up with the lack of Inception fanvids for download? Everything's on youtube. Some of us can't watch things on youtube, you know. *headdesk* Does anyone have a link to a great Arthur/Eames or gen vid I can download? PLEASE SHARE WITH ME!! *begs*

I finished editing my FrayK mix. THANK GOD. I had forgotten to put in the lyrics of "The Everthere" by Elbow and "Waiting in Canada" by Jann Arden. BECAUSE I AM A TOOL. I also finally replied to all the comments that have been needing replies. THANK GOD X2. Because I srsly cannot be having these half-finished conversations. It upsets my anal-retentiveness.

I may or may not post a f-locked rant about RL when I next get online. Some stupid confusing shit happened. I dislike stupid confusing shit.

P.S. My captcha for dl-ing on megaupload was just SGC6 and I just about had a seizure of awesome over it. Does the SGC have at least 6 teams? I'm pretty sure they do. Is this proof that the Stargate really exists? I'm pretty sure it is. ATLANTIS HERE I COME.

P.P.S. I am working on [livejournal.com profile] siriuslyyellow's birthday present. That's the one thing that really sucks about being a twin. I'm like, "It's almost my birthday! ... OH SHIT!!" *headdesk*

P.P.P.S. Hey, look at how dumb Target is! Target Turns Its Back on LGBT Community, Refuses to Work With Human Rights Campaign. It sucks that I have to boycott them now. My RL non-fandom friend Erin and I go there when we're bored. D:
kowaiyoukai: (Inception Arthur/Eames flirting)

I updated my fandom rec list with TV shows and movies I've been watching! I posted up an epic multi-fandom fic rec list! AND I posted a Fraser/Kowalski fanmix!

This is all stuff I've been meaning to do for a while. Thank God it's done.

RL sucks

Jul. 22nd, 2010 03:13 pm
kowaiyoukai: (TDK batman/joker comics not crazy just f)
Well, it does though! And it keeps me away from the internet for long periods of time. I do not appreciate that. AT ALL. I will eventually write a post about RL drama, but in the meantime, know that I am very angry at reality and have decided to smite it down with wrathful anger. And also slash.

I got a formspring account! It's here: http://formspring.me/kowaiyoukai. So hopefully that won't blow up in my face. I need to check twitter and facebook and myspace, but see, I just kind of don't care enough to do it. Meh. Whatever.

Re: fics! I'm working on them. WHAT?! Well, I am. I'm actually working on TOO many fics at the moment. Also vids. And a fanmix. I SUCK OKAY. I JUST SUCK. THAT'S ALL.

REQUEST! I'm looking for the McShep vid "Jolene". It was recced to me but I can't find a dl of it anywhere. Anybody know where I can get it? Pretty please with Sheppard on top? XD

RE: APOGEE. Okay, look. I've got a lot more written, but I've made an executive decision. I'm going to wait until I finish (or am very nearly finished with) the first part before I put it up. Then I can update frequently and there'll be less stress for everyone involved. So if you've got any good reasons why this is a bad idea, say them now. :P

I'm working on my original novel, too. I've decided a few things about it that will probably mean it's impossible to get published, but FUCK IT. It's my novel and I'll do what I please with it.

Also, I really think it stinks that we don't have more good subtexty gay couples. I mean really now. I think Due South spoiled me rotten. D:

I'm also looking for fic recs for good stories for FrayK, McShep, Hotson, and Spork! Feel free to send links or rec lists my way if you've got them readily available.

I'm off to catch the train to work. TTYL, flist!! ILU ALL!! ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥

P.S. I meant it about the Apogee thing. If anybody has a better idea than posting it when it's all finished, let me know. Since it looks like posting it as it's written isn't doing so great. STUPID NOT HAVING THE INTERNET AT MY HOUSE. *headdesk*
kowaiyoukai: (Default)
I'M STILL ALIVE!! But rushed as always. Hopefully more Apogee soon.

ILU ALL!! <3

FrayK fanmix and vid coming soon! ♥
kowaiyoukai: (DS Kowalski oh snap)
LJ just completely fucked me over with my icons. It erased the icons I uploaded and then re-loaded them all WITHOUT the keywords or comments, so I just spent the last hour and a half of my precious online time fixing it!! HATEHATEHATE!!

In other news, YAY SUPERNATURAL'S 100TH EPISODE WOO!!! I need to catch up on that, along with everything else.

RE: APOGEE!! More importantly! I've decided Apogee is a greedy little bitch. But that's not news. What is news is that I'm attempting to work it out so that the fic's not as long as I originally intended it to be, so that we all can have some peace in our lives. It was already going to be split up into three parts, so I'm seeing if I can cut out stupid shit to make it only two. Unless anyone has an epic issue with that idea?

Also, does anyone know how to convert flv files to avi without paying for it? Anyone? Or else I need to know where I can get video game footage in avi format, like, not off of youtube.
kowaiyoukai: (DS Fraser/Kowalski men at work)
No, this is not an Apogee update. Have a cookie instead. *gives out cookies*

So I started a FrayK vid. It's just I heard the song and then I was like... it was so... YOU DON'T UNDERSTAND. IT JUST. HAD. TO. HAPPEN. So that may be finished shortly since I'm using footage from only s3 due to the nature of the song AND I've finaly finished s3 and HOLY FUCKING SHIT I HAD NO IDEA DUE SOUTH WAS THAT GOOD!! PEOPLE. YOU MUST TELL ME THESE THINGS. Are there any other incredibly amazing gay shows that I missed out on years agao? PLEASE TELL ME LIEK NAO.

So re: writing, I've been switching basically continuously between Apogee, this unnamed FrayK fic, a McShep fic, some Morgan/Reid, and some wincest stuff. Which means one of two things. Either there will be a plethora of fic all posted on the same day at some point in the future because I'll have finished them all at EXACTLY THE SAME TIME, or there'll be sporadic fics in no logical order for random fandoms. XP

Also, I suck, and so knowing this I've decided to never again sign up for any kind of challenge, exchange, auction, or big bang sort of thing. I just can't be held to these kind of constraints, okay?! *panicked eyes*


Oh, and one last thing. I'm compiling an epic fic and vid rec list in every fandom I'm in, because I realized this needs to occur. I have very picky tastes, you know, and I figure why not share the love? But who knows when that will happen.
