1. Reply to this post with I AM A PRETTY PRETTY PONY and I will pick six of your icons.
2. Make a post (including this info) and talk about the icons I chose.
3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never ending cycle of icon glee!

So, I did this for [ profile] attilatehbun, and here are the icons she picked:

Oh man, I love this icon. And like many icons, it has a weird and kind of convoluted story behind it. It started with the song 'Dirty Deeds, Done Dirt Cheap', due to the line 'for a small fee, I'm happy to be, your backdoor man'. Which, in the context of a slash fic I wrote, took on a whole new meaning. Somehow, the parody song 'Dirty Deeds, Done With Sheep' and an offhand comment about a fictional character and a goat combined to result in this long-running gag involving Jansen Friedh from Lost Odyssey and sheep-bothering. And gave birth to the fic 'Three Bags Full'. And I desperately needed an icon. So [ profile] nijawial made me this one. :D

I like the artist's work, and just particularly like the emotions and atmosphere conveyed by this particular cropping of this picture. It's one of the few icons I just grabbed from someone's icon journal.

[ profile] husband_brother's default pic is the twin to this, which is why I have it. We need our matching icons, after all. Well, I need to have matching icons.... It's just a screencap from Lost Odyssey. Plus, it's always good to have a pissy icon, and no one does pissy like Cooke. :D

Long story.

So, one day I decide I'm going to go for all the achievements in LO. Including getting all the dreams. And for some reason, I decided I would also read all the dreams. After about six or seven, I noticed a disturbing trend when it came to Kaim and 10 year olds. Apparently his solution for any problems they may have was to give them money and tell them to go start their own life. And since Mack is 10 when he and Kaim meet, and definitely having problems....

Ming is the quintessential fair maiden for me. It's a nod to both the fairy tale/Rapunzel aspects of her character that I love, and the fact that I love we have a sexy, flirtatious, adult (and more, lady's 1000) woman who is fully in control of her sexuality but is still a virgin. (Or at least that's how I interpret it, based on her past and how she was about people.) Plus, she is my avatar everywhere on the internet, so I need a good few different icons of her. This is actually the one I use on Twitter! Which this morning earned me the title 'Kelolon Slayer'. :D
said_scarlett: (Once upon a time...)'s been one year to the day since [ profile] husband_brother rescued me and set in motion our epic, awkward story. It's also the first day of her chunk of time off. Awesome, or most awesome?

Anyway, here's a meme! About my LJ. Since this LJ has nothing to do with my old one, and has actuals reasons for being named and set up as it is.

said_scarlett: (Maiden)
I seem to have found that place where I'm balancing everything rather well. I'm getting chores done, getting cleaning/packing done, and I'm still finding time to get in a bit of RP and write and chat with people. This is good! I like balance!

Not much else to say. I'm writing some steamy porn, and I'm really trying to push myself when it comes to femmeslash. I have a history of writing very...vague, euphemistic femmeslash. And that's silly. Femmeslash can be just as hotdirtypronny as anything else, and by Hohenheim, I'm going to write hotdirtypronny femmeslash!

In the meantime, here's another music meme gacked from [ profile] speaky_bean!

Hee! Thank you for the cookies and milk, [ profile] lady_angelina! :D

Man, is it really Monday? For some reason, it doesn't feel like it.

I blame [ profile] husband_brother that I had dreams where Link was chasing me all over some city, trying to catch me doing something illegal. Especially behind dumpsters. I'm only sad that I was not actually a wannabe rapper/tyrannical McDonald's Manager.

Also, I can't believe it took this long for me to have a nightmare about the mommy doll.

I've seen a few fic memes floating around, and since I've been, figured I'd do the 'post experts of what you're working on!' one. Since I don't actually have 20 fics to post first lines from. I have 11.

Whee, Out Of Context Fic Snippets! )

Okay, I actually had 8, since I apparently completely forgot I did start the sheep fic! Baaaa!

Whoo, meme gacked from everyone! Because I need a meme break. :D I've done dishes, laundry, scrubbed the bathroom, entertained my parents and cleaned the hamster cage out. And now it's vacuuming time.

And possibly time to put actual clothes on, not just my bathrobe.

Give me a character I RP, and I'll tell you:

(This is for all characters that I've ever played)

01. Full name:
02. Best friend:
03. Sexuality:
04. Favorite color:
05. Relationship status:
06. Ideal mate:
07. Turn-ons:
08. Last sexual experience:
09. Favorite food:
10. Crushes:
11. Favorite music:

15. Bad habits:
16. Biggest regret:
17. Best kept secrets:
18. Last thought:
19. Worst sexual/romantic experience:
20. Biggest insecurity
said_scarlett: (a little sin)
The gist of this meme is to name a character I play and I'll answer these for them. :O For some you may have to specify the game.

1. What would your character kill for? What would they die for?
2. What would they refuse to do under any circumstances? Why?
3. What do they dream about? [Either literal or figurative, specify please.]
4. What's their biggest fear?
5. What single object would they be most hard pressed to part with? Why?
6. What is their fondest memory?
7. What is their worst memory?
8. What or who was were their most significant influence? Expound.
9. What do they believe makes a successful life?
10. What makes them laugh?
11. What are their religious views?
12. What is their greatest strength?
13. Do they have a fatal flaw? If so, what is it?
14. Who is the most important person in their life?
15. If they died, who would miss them most? How would they die?
said_scarlett: (naughty tonks art by xenoface)

Baw, I'm a sheep.

I also have a confession to make. A fandom confession, not the naughty sexy fun kind. ;)

I have a terrible weakness for band AUs. I don't know why, I can't explain what my fascination is, I just love fic or art involving characters as musicians. I know that these are usually terribly done, and they make no sense, and in most of my fandoms it's a ridiculously stupid idea, but the fact remains.

I don't generally go reading these fics, and I'd never write one to post online, but I liked thinking about who would be in a band together, what sort of music they'd write, would they be famous, what would their albums look like?

I guess it's my 'guilty pleasure' scenario, or something. We all have them.

There was also a time I really dug vampire AUs. I've moved beyond that stage, but in the interest of full disclosure, I felt it bore mentioning.

I was up before 10 AM today. I'm going to shoot for that every morning, if possible. I'm very much trying to adopt an 'early to bed, early to rise' pattern - which is why I seem to drop off the face of the earth around 7 or 8 my time. (Though last night it's because I was cooking then eating dinner, then beginning my pre-bed routine.)

I'm starting to get new calluses in my hand from my new cane. It sits just a little bit differently in my hand then the old one.
said_scarlett: (Problem Light)
Wow, setting your hair on fire is a great way to start the day!


Not too much damage was done, my bangs have just gotten way too long and caught when I was lighting my cigarette.

My god, did I gorge myself on cookies last night. We ordered Pizza Hut and had three boxes of cookies. I ate almost an entire box of Oreo Cakesters myself. I'm trying to bring myself to regret it, but they were just so damn good.

It's still rainy and cloudy here.

And now, a meme!

Name a character from any of my fandoms, and I'll tell you every pairing I've ever written them in, read them in, or even just thought about.

I think I'm going to spend the day writing, RPing and possibly playing Dokapon if all parties are interested. Or Obscure, which I had dreams about last night.

Yesterday, I pinched a nerve in my back. Today, I still have a pinched nerve in my back. It's right between my shoulder blades, so everytime I move, it hurts. Badly. It hasn't responded to heat or pills, either. I'm bed ridden today, which is a bummer, as I had a lot of things to do today.

I did manage to hit more thrift stores yesterday, and while I didn't find another record player, I found some very cute clothes and some stuff for my room. So, since I'm stuck in bed, here's a meme:

The problem with LJ: we all think we are so close, but really, we know nothing about each other.

So I want you to ask me something you think you should know about me. Something that should be obvious, but you have no idea about. Or something completely random. Ask away.
said_scarlett: (Default)
Finally got rid of my Christmas layout. Will instate a snazzy, custom layout at a later date.

It's been insanely damp here, and it's really starting to take it's toll on me. Besides the hot aching in my joints, there is an unpleasant scratchy and tight feeling in my throat. I think it's safe to assume I'll be returning to the mountains with illness wracking my bones.

Though considering how I've been shamelessly and without a care cavorting under-dressed in climates most moist and brumal... it's really not a surprise.

I have made a decision to write more fan fiction and watch more anime/tv shows in the coming year.

To kick off that first goal:

Give me a fandom/pairing/character and a prompt and I'll write you 100 words or less of a New Years Smooch!

Popping up a quick meme between cleaning, cooking, baking, etc!

Name any character I write or RP, and I will tell you what they're like in bed!
said_scarlett: (Atmo Sperm)
On the theory that we could all use a hearty dose of positive energy and general warm fuzziness while we wait, none too patiently, for better times; that *no* one I know is getting told often enough what a good job they are doing just getting through this crazy, lovely world. Take a second, and mention something you like about me (if such a thing exists) in the comments. Then repost this to your own journal, and have some goodness for yourself.

Goodness is good.

Last night, thanks to [ profile] summoneddestiny, I was able to access my ChaCha money! I promptly bought us all booze to celebrate. ;) Kahlua chocolate latte things are delicious.

Today is Phoenix again, but this afternoon! I have a small errand to run, and we pick up [ profile] chocomimi from the airport!
said_scarlett: (Brock Fuck This)
I seem to have caught some sort of bug over the weekend. I was fine until maybe 11 o'clock last night, when suddenly I found myself with aching, stuffed sinuses and a cough so bad I was throwing up. O.o

On the mend now, it seems, but that was rather hellish.

Anyway, here's that 25 First Lines meme that's going around, where you take the first lines from the most recent 25 of your fics and look for a pattern. My patterns are...clearly evident. I actually did this a few days ago, but didn't post, but I felt there should be some content of at least mild interest here.

25 First Lines )

Why has no one yet told me how horrible I am at first sentences? *winces* I need to work on my opening lines. Standing alone, without the rest of the paragraph to support them, they fall rather flat. And half of them don't even read like opening lines, they look like they were taken from the middle of a paragraph. So in the sense that I know what I need to work on, this was a worthwhile meme to do.

I hope I start feeling better shortly, so I can get back to packing.
said_scarlett: (Brock Fuck This)
Go to my userpics and then pick:
1. Your favorite.
2. Your least favorite.
3. One that makes you automatically think of me.
4. One that you think I should TOTALLY use more often.
5. One that you don't get/needs more explanation/you have no idea why the hell I have it.


I actually had a good update, before I got dressed. Since I'm meeting my future landlord today, I figured I'd dress nice. Nothing terribly fancy, but something nice and relatively conservative. So I tossed one of my nice red sleeveless shirts and my black and white dragon skirt into the wash. Unfortunately, things came up, and I forgot about them until this morning. so I went to give them another spin and hang them....

And found my mother had thrown them in the dryer.

My one of a kind dragon skirt cannot go in the dryer. I put it on and yes, it has shrunk to the point of looking ludicrous on me. Instead of falling to my ankles, like it should, it falls to just an inch below my knees. Not to mention it doesn't wrap around quite as much as it used to.

I love this skirt, and now I can't wear it. And I can't replace it because, you know, one of a kind. And my mother gets pissed at me, because I left my laundry in the wash overnight. Which I apologized for - I've been a bit busy.

So now I have to find something else to wear, but this was the one 'nice' outfit I didn't pack. Everything else, aside from PJs, tank tops and grubby man clothes are all in bags in the garage. Other than my 'court' outfit, which is much too nice and business-y to wear to a house viewing appointment. And besides that, I'm seriously pissed about my skirt. Because this happens much too often. Is it so hard to check tags? Or to wait half an hour to ask me?

It's always something.
said_scarlett: (Lust cosplay)
Okay, so, I had this idea, inspired by a thread on a cosplay forum. Sort of Cosplay Love Meme. I know a lot of people on my Flist have galleries, but it can be really hard getting comments on there. Especially if you don't update frequently, or have a ton of pictures, or cosplay the 'popular' characters.

SO! POST YOUR COSPLAY GALLERY LINKS HERE! And then check out who else has posted, and leave a comment or two! Look at awesome cosplay, and brighten up someone's day at the same time!

I'll start with mine:

Fey's Cosplay Gallery



I've been having con and cosplay withdrawal, can you tell? :D
said_scarlett: (Silent Damned)
Because I'm a sheep: Comment with a fandom and I will tell you my....

One True Pairing Ship:

Canon Ship:

"If this happens I'll stab my eyes out with a spork" Ship:

"You are one sick bastard" Ship:

"I dabble a little" Ship:

"It's like a car crash" Ship:

"Tickles my fancy but not sold just yet" Ship:

"Makes no canon sense but why the Hell not" Ship:

"Everyone else loves it but I just don't feel it" Ship:

"When all is said and done" Ship:

Though I'd like to just say that for me, all 'OTP' means is 'favorite pairing'. The closest thing I have to an actual, conventional OTP is Henry/Eileen, but I'll still occasionally pair them with other people.

Moving on!

Sorry I didn't really reply to emails or things yesterday, and completely failed at comments last night, I just got a little overwhelmed. I hadn't really been able to RP for a bit there, and once I jumped back in everyone was around, and it just sort of was a constant cycle of comments and posts. But it was fun! Even if I was getting a little frazzled towards the end there.

I was going to finally clean my bedroom and get the furniture the way I wanted but...there's an X-Files marathon on, and I need to finish Seeing Red before tomorrow morning - when I'm passing it off to my niece - so I think I'll clean tomorrow.

I keep thinking it's Friday for some reason. I also slept until 11:30, and I'm pissed off about that. I had a restless night last night, plagued by incomprehensible dreams. I fear hallucinations again. :/
said_scarlett: (fma snow)
I'm posting this not only because I'm about to do mass amounts of physical labor and know I will be in worlds of pain and a foul mood in a couple of hours, but because there are most definitely people on my Flist that I want to steal this and post in their own LJ. I mean it! All of you out there having less than great times, take this meme and be loved! *hugs all around*

Anyway, finishing my media center today, cleaning the oven, laundry, baking once the oven's clean, bathroom, counters, vacuuming and scrubbing floors. Yes, that's my to do list for this morning. We won't touch this afternoon until it comes.


"Do you ever want to make an entry that says "LOVE ME, I FEEL LIKE CRAP," but that's kind of not a good thing to do because it's attention whoring?

"... Well. I don't care right now.

"LOVE ME GUYS. I will do my best to love you in return. I WILL NOT TELL YOU HOW I PLAN TO DO THIS, but I think it would be nice for everyone to have some love right now. You can even take this as a MEME and go attention whore in your own journals. Switch it up, make it a thing where people give you new icons, or write you fic, or bring their RP characters in to be obnoxious. WHATEVER MAKES YOU FEEL BETTER."

ETA: I was walking through my living room....holy fuck, Wolf Lake is using Chumbawamba's 'Mary Mary'. I've never, ever heard that song anywhere other than my computer/MP3 player.

I was walking through and heard the line I use in all Maria icons and fic titles and things - 'whatever happened to Mary?' - and it really just threw me off and made me excited and I had to share. Even the TV is offering love! ;)
said_scarlett: (Death Candy)
My god, I can't believe I'm going to be back in Seattle day after tomorrow. Huzzah! I need to pack! Not much, because it's only a weekend, but still!

I'm watching that Sci-fi show Special Unit 2. It's not terrible. Kind of a generic Sci-Fi show, but entertaining enough to have on in the background. I wish they'd marathon the Dresden Files. I do prefer the books, but I like the show a great deal as well.

Anyway! Had strange, strange dreams last night that I can't even get into describing. Strange hotels and being trapped in a video game, and stealing this girl's boyfriend and sharks in a pool and Starbucks....

Very odd. Here, have an RP meme ganked (this time) from [ profile] chaneystarr!

Here's how it works. You can ask any question to any of my roleplaying characters. I've listed them below! They may not answer you truthfully, but they will answer.

[ profile] damned

[ profile] lustful_thing - Lust
[ profile] felled_hero - Maes Hughes
[ profile] the_clown_king - Suou Tamaki
[ profile] ontheabyss - Lyta Alexander
[ profile] reanalyze - Citan Uzuki
[ profile] notmyfather - Valyn Hernalth
[ profile] fyeonly - Naomi Misora

[ profile] damselesque - Rena
[ profile] spiteful_thing - Myre

[ profile] chaosunraveled (IJ)

[ profile] my_private_life - Henry Townshend
[ profile] pecatus_regina - Dante

And I suppose you can ask things of [ profile] mister_radio as well, if you'd like. Other than that, I'm only doing current, active RP characters. There'd be way too many, otherwise.
