Birthday Bears
Red Liquorice from brother boy and Paddington from the 'rents. May family knows me.

It was my birthday on Monday - thanks to those who gave birthday wishes. To be very honest, it was a very hard day, speaking in terms of my mental health. I was utterly miserable, and spent most of it crying. The parents and the brother boy, bless them, tried really hard but it was just one of those days. Ironically by the end of the day I was feeling better, but then it was time for me to go to sleep because the being miserable had exhausted me. Typical, really.

The week has been pretty quiet - last week I had to go and get a filling replaced. Today was Film and Comic Con Glasgow and that was fun. Bumped into a couple of my friends who ended up in the queue right behind me, so went round the whole con with them. We all agreed it felt smaller somehow. I know there was another convention on, but usually you get a lot of passers by coming in thanks to the Garrison - a group of professional cosplayers. Largely Star Wars related. Good people, all, I know a lot of them but it's always one of those things that I see them out of cosplay and my mind blanks. Actually, I don't think the Garrison was spread out as far as they usually do so that could help to explain some things... Eh.

I did cosplay - Wednesday Addams. Broadway version. (Well, mostly as an excuse for my short hair. I got it cut for the hot weather and it can't do braids right now, so I say it's the Broadway incarnation. Though that did lead to the general agreement of getting a crossbow for future uses of the cosplay.) First time ever, I ran into other Addams Family cosplayers - they were Gomez and Morticia. Was cool. Also got given a lovely gift from my friends.

Ohana Means Family

The porcelain of it is really pale though - that's the best of the pictures, the rest look really washed out or fuzzy. It is utterly adorable though, and I have no idea what to get them for their birthday in return. I've got time though, which is good.

Erm... not much else I can think of? Probably going to check out the American Death Note when it hits Netflix on the 25th. I'm genuinely curious. I also need to re-get the live action movies. I did have the DVDs but they stopped working so I got rid. Need to replace them.

Hope everyone's doing well!

So my 21st is in five weeks. Yes, I am keeeping count of when this is because, frankly, I don't have much else to do at the moment. Which is actually the reason I'm sitting trying to plan out a trip to London over the September weekend. Well, I say plan out, it's actually been on the cards since early this year, we've just done bugger all due to the 21st party coming up and it being tthe bigger priority atm.

Hoping this planning actually plans out because Gods know I need a damn holiday. And yes, I am well aware my uni will likely be in session then but at the moment, all I care about is getting a holiday so I don't go insane over this term. Can I afford this holiday? ... Ask in five weeks.

No, but seriously, it'd be chill to get a well  needed time away from Glasgow and down to where I can hang out with some great friends and hit up a couple of places I haven't been yet/been to in a while. I haven't actually had a holiday since I started at the uni. I don't actually know how I've managed to keep relatively sane in all of this. And yess, this insane giggling fandom mess you see is relatively sane.

If anything a holiday is likely to stop the depressing thoughts my mind keeps throwing at me.

In other news - I have the beginnings of a PR fanfic. Should I post it? Please note, I have no idea whether or not I can finish this fic, and it was based off a ... semi-cracky idea and my writing is semi-terrible but... yeah. Opinions?

Also - please check out twomusicalfangirls! It's random musical fangirling fun.

werepuppyblack: (Power Rangers)
1. Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger: ... Yeah, I'm still in love with this awesome pirate-based sentai. And, godsdammit, I STILL want to rp Marvelous ... after I steal his coat. Like I've said a few timesbefore on this journal, I'm not really big on my sentai knowledge, which does make it odd that I choose to start at one that is literally all callbacks but... eh, that's me. (Okay, so I did watch a fair bit of GaoRanger on youtube when the subbed episodes were up, but it was a hit and miss thing there, it wasn't terrible just... oddly bland in places) I'm thinking of watching either MagiRanger or TimeRanger next, and was wondering if anyone had a recommendation for a good sentai to watch.

2. Horrible Histories: Series 3 started on Monday and the show is back in full force. We had a whole week of great episodes, and it's fantastic to see such quality programming from CBBC, especially in the wake of the kind of 'meh' output its had lately. With Young Dracula - hopefully - starting back this autumn/winter series, well, I'm going to be annoyed if I have any late classes this upcoming term. Lol. Actually have been making strides to at least get some of my faveourite HH books again. I used to have a full set but they sort of went missing over the years and at the very least they are what started my interest in History so... Yeah.

3. Sherlock: Okay. so this was really more of a rewatch, having finally managed to actually buy the damn dvd, but DAMN I forget how much I like a good detective story. And it's always Sherlock Holmes who reminds me. The next series of that is due to air this autumn as well, which I will be watching (likely using iplayer live since my television sucks but I have paid my license fee so can use the live feature) but I think I'll end up rewatching the dvd a good few times before then.

4. Dirk Gently: I got the omnibus book out of the library because, frankly, I haven't read this story in yonks and my Douglas Adams collection is sorely lacking but as I am lacking in money atm, it's the library for me. It's just as bloody confusing as I remember - seriously, I don't mind the tv adpatation changing the plot, it really wouldn't work for an hour long program - but that makes it all the more fun! Will be updating it on my Goodreads account (link in the side-bar) and I'll try to give a really good review! 

5. Real Life: Well... where to start with this one. First of all, thank you all for the lovely comments on the post a few enteries back. I am not ignoring the lovely comments, it's just that to prevent that type of think I'm ... ignoring the post. Anyways, house is slowly getting all done up and room is looking less like a bomb site and more like my room again. Two weeks tomorrow (4th... which means the 18th, really) I will be going to GLASGOW COMIC CON. Am very excited about all of this, and hope to at least pick up the newest Blue Beetle trade. What? He's my favourite! There are currently 73 days till my 21st birthday, which the counting for is not as childish as you may think. This means 72 days until I have the very large family party, so that the actual *day* can be free for me to do my think. Also, the awesome [livejournal.com profile] siddymouche  is coming to visit. THERE WILL BE HIJINKS PEOPLE.

Shamlessly ganked from [livejournal.com profile] queenfaithie .

Every day for the whole month of December, I will be posting something for one of you. Sign up here and let me know if you want something/what you want, and let this be a Christmas/Hannukah/Chrismukkah gift unto you all. ASK AND YOU SHALL RECEIVE. My only, only, ONLY, request for this is that, well, you don't request any day before the 10th as the 10th is my FINAL exam. After then I am free.

Here's what I will do:
ICONS. I'll make a small batch of whatever you like. Leave me an interest or images.
DRABBLE. Give me a character/characters/pairing in any of the following fandoms and I will write you a 100 word drabble on this pairing. Erm ... actually, best to request the fandom. If I don't know it, I will say, but your best bet is to request
BANNERS. Leave me images and I will make you a banner of your size and choice with whatever text you want
WALLPAPERS   As above.

(Also, remember I am doing Christmas Cards! And also have a wishlist

Days under the cut )
werepuppyblack: (Disney)
And saying it now, you will need to link me to yours as I will be ... totally lost within a couple of days due to exams starting on the 7th, so if you leave a link in the comments to your wishlist, I will to my best to try to at least grant one person's wish. Oh, and I'm still open for christmas cards, and keep an eye out for the advent calendar

Step One

- Make a post (public, friends locked, filtered...whatever you're comfortable with) to your LJ. The post should contain your list of 10 holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple and fandom-related ("I'd love a Snape/Hermione icon that's just for me") to medium ("I wish for _____ on DVD") to really big ("All I want for Christmas is a new car/computer/house/TV.") The important thing is, make sure these wishes are things you really, truly want.

- If you wish for real life things (not fics or icons), make sure you include some sort of contact info in your post, whether it's your address or just your email address where Santa (or one of his elves) could get in touch with you.

- Also, make sure you post some version of these guidelines in your LJ, or link to this post (it'll be public) so that the holiday joy will spread.

Step Two
- Surf around your friendslist (or friends friends, or just random journals, or holiday_wishes/wishlist) to see who has posted their list. And now here's the important part:

- If you see a wish you can grant, and it's in your heart to do so, make someone's wish come true. Sometimes someone's trash is another's treasure, and if you have a leather jacket you don't want or a gift certificate you won't use--or even know where you could get someone's dream purebred Basset Hound for free--do it.

You needn't spend money on these wishes unless you want to. The point isn't to put people out, it's to provide everyone a chance to be someone else's holiday elf--to spread the joy. Gifts can be made anonymously or not--it's your call.

There are no rules with this project, no guarantees, and no strings attached. Just...wish, and it might come true. Give, and you might receive. And you'll have the joy of knowing you made someone's holiday special.

So, today is the 1st April, April Fools Day. And I've decided that today, I'm gonna start off any posts made today with this one. Because there never seems to be enough positive-ness in life. So, erm, yeah

Let's start with small things to be positive about. Well, my psychology essay looks awesome, and my bus was on time today, oh and I've got next week off classes thanks to it being the holiday, not to mention my politics presentation and report is on one of the few topics in the course that doesn't bore me stupid. I've also made some really awesome friends while at uni. So that's all positive

What else, well fandom wise two of my favourite shows start back this week, and though it's the last series for one of them I'msure it's gonna rock. And for the other, well it's a Doctor I've been supporting for well over a year already, and a Scottish companion, so woo! Not to mention the showrunner is someone whose shows I've been a fan of since I was a kid, starting from Press Gang

Right, now moving on to the larger. Brother Boy is happy in his work, and the family are all coping fairly well post recent bad things, so that's yet another thing to be positive about! 

And now ... my online life. Well, let's see. I've got a thriving rp comm that welcomes the weirdest of the weird fandoms, and even if its made up of all the same people, I wouldn't want to get rid of any of them 'cause they're awesome to rp with. Those on the f'list who frequent [livejournal.com profile] fandom_smash , I salute you. And those on [livejournal.com profile] brb_gallifrey  too, as you lot really got me back into rp'ing and, y'know, you're all totally awesome.

Online, and in real life, I've got some really completely awesome friends who I would have never gotten the chance to meet had it not been for the internet, and I mean that totally sincerly. The people I chat with on here, at uni, on AIM, on msn, on any other random site I frequent are some of the best I've known and it's great to know that I'm not alone in my geeky little bubble. Even if I have you friended on here, and I hardly even comment on your stuff (I should get better at that), and we haven't talked in ages, just know that I still think you're completely awesome, and just yell at me if you want my attention. I am a master of the multi task! It's a weird feeling, to go from someone with no friends, to having this great group who I adore and love chatting with, so kudos to you all! May our random awesomeness continue! 

All in all, my life is a lot better than I make it seem sometimes. I just ... I need to stop focusing on the bad, and start glorying the good. Life is more awesome than it seems, and it'll probably stay as awesome as long as I want it to!

And no, this isn't getting hidden under a cut.

I am offering this instead: I will write you a fic (or varying lengths, depends on what type of it I get, but will most likely be short) relating to one of your interests.

I know, weak-ass cop out and probably I'll end up forgetting due to studying, but I promise I'll try my hardest to get these done! Just ... name a fandom. Can even make it a self interest if you like! (It's Christmas, I feel self-insert is good for the soul at this time of year)

So, erm, yeah. I don't know whether I'll put a limit on these ... but ... yeah.

[Error: unknown template qotd]

Erm, possibly the X-Men movies. I like the cartoon well enough, I just didn't like the movies. Well, I did but I didn't - it's kind of hard to explain.

Also, possibly Stargate, and Supernatural (to an extent ... first few series I like, then my interest dwindles)
