oh hai distraction )

One of these days i'll actually get around to finishing the Golden Compass books. *stares at dusty bookshelf* among other things.

In other news, fanfiction is an amazing distraction for a whole lotta awful. now if only i could get my stupid ass to WRITE IT, i might avoid a last minute panic next week.
*coughs* lets see how long those good intentions last me -.-
I'm srsly LOLing at myself right now for reading Legion fanfic, but damnit, it's better than the movie. more Gabe/Mike plz, i miss my own.

and of course, my heart goes out to my poor [livejournal.com profile] fauxfaia. <3 u bb, i'm here if you need me and you know it. day or night.

mrrrrrr

the last day to sign up for the dean/cas secret fic exchange is today. TODAY.

do i sign up? do i convince myself that i have far more important things to do? (cause i do). am i really this much of a masochist? or do i just REALLY miss writing? should i do it and swear to NOT write an epic in the process? or am i just fooling myself thinking i can produce something short without hating it...
*earbleed*

damnitall.
HELP ME INTERNET.

in other news, defenestrate is my new favorite word.

*sigh*

so this week wasn't so hot afterall. It was a decent hope? I guess? MEH.

Still working my ass off and still stuck with an obnoxious deadline for these convention pics. it looks like i won't get to go to England this year tho :( woe. there's still a chance for Germany, but my optimism stopped a week ago. if anything, i'll be making an impossible deadline that neither i nor my friends thought i could make, and that's worth something at least.
that, and even if i don't get to cross the Big Blue, i'll still get paid. score.
tho i would have loved to see my friends again ;__; (no, actors are not friends, i mean other fans i met last year)

although, M is right. As nice as these guys are, they are easily distracted with everything else going on with the con and working with them for art is a PAIN and an organizational nightmare. i am such a glutton for punishment, ngl, otherwise why the hell else would i be doing this x_x art doesn't just pop out of my hand in a few minutes, fully colored and print-ready. IT TAKES SOME TIME.
but they really are nice guys, so its hard to stay mad. i'll remain detachedly irritated til its done then.

They did offer for me to come to the con in October, which would be cool, but i'm gonna be down in the middle of the grand canyon by then. so no dice.

the internet in my apartment is finally back up to working order, as it has been slow and annoying all damn week until last night. my stupid computer couldn't find the network for the life of him until i pulled out my laptop to see if it was perhaps the router. the laptop found it instantly, and suddenly my desktop got jealous and found it too! x_x wtf desktop.
so that's one less annoying thing.
after this week is done tho, i think i'm gonna stay off of my home computer after work for a few days or so to detox. stuffing my face in my sketchbook sounds like an awesome idea, especially since i still have concepts to do for [livejournal.com profile] psychosako, among other things. my poor eyes need to stare at something that isn't a computer monitor, kthnx.

sooooo many things have been niggling at me for the past week and a half to sit myself down and start writing about angels again. srsly. it's like i wake up with it and go to sleep with it now, and its beginning to get bloody persistent. the only problem with that, is that if i do go back into writing The Story again, that'll be it. It'll be all-time-consuming and i won't wanna do much else, such as previous writing experience has taught me.
if anything tho, i need to outline that bitch from the beginning. reorganize and put some kind of order into it to make some sense out of the convoluted. my writing style has changed a GREAT DEAL since we first started it, so there's a whole friggen lot of it that'll need rewrites. possibly the whole thing. not that i mind, but that's a lot of words.

inspiration is a double-edged sword, yo.

it's SPFNthursday! WOO!
oatmeal_queen: (not always as awesome as i am now)
I FINISHED IT.
aaauuugghhh finally x_x after far too much delay and way too much last minute desperation, I finished the secret angels fic exchange story for the [livejournal.com profile] deancastiel com and i am DONE. D.U.N.
thanks SO friggen much to [livejournal.com profile] morgainlefay for the last minute beta too. i owe you woman, srsly.

maybe next time i'll actually write something short? i dunno. sounds difficult.

Back from a long weekend of drama and mayhem in Richmond with the Mad Kat crew, and despite the crazy amounts of unnecessary, it was also a fairly decent weekend. I really liked the Alice movie :3 honestly.

i know a lot of people are hatin on it, and me being a movie fanatic i probably should hold a bit more of an opinion than i do, but to be completely honest, i really did just like it for what it was. and that was FUN. it's a movie to make you smile, make your head tilt and fill your irises with information that isn't supposed to make sense. which it does, at different times for different people, i noticed. if you can get over the stupid hype, the big names, and try not to compare it to either the books or previous movies (general knowledge of Looking Glass aside), its very easy to slip into the movie and simply find it fascinating. Which i did, so i was not disappointed.

That, and Christopher fucking Lee as the Jabberwock. Heyall yes. i lamented his lack of dialogue once introduced.

I wouldn't mind seeing it again, but of course, i'd still like to see Shutter Island again X) silly poor E, why do you have no moneys?

CLASH OF THE TITANS NEXT MONTH. I AM ALREADY THERE.

what SUCKED about the movie (or at least the time around when we watched it), was the strangely ironic incident that took place afterwards where gravity saw fit to trip me up the stairs. i went headfirst into a gaggle of humans, but not until after slamming my knee into the cement steps, straight across the bone.
ouch.
oh sorry, i meant ouuuuuccccchhhhhh.

got a great big nasty bruise for my troubles too >.< damnitall.

the girls took me shopping, or as they called it, retail therapy. which is an odd and somewhat frightening concept to me, to be honest. (maybe because i worked so much retail and the idea seems hysterical? i dunno) it was fun though, and just a bit strange considering how well i fit into things now that look as if i shouldn't. and i mean, srsly look like they shouldn't. like they'd fit a doll or something.

i am no closer to getting used to the way i look now than i was a few months ago. and its still going too. i lost another five pounds this week. yeesh.

and i still keep pulling on some of my bigger clothes everyso often just for the slightest bit of normalcy that i don't see anymore. it's all in my head, and i know it, but when there's the image of something familiar in your head, something you've known all your life and expect to see whenever you look for it...but now its not there? you kinda freak out a little.
So yeah. there's that.

but looking nice is, dare i say, fun. didn't get to do much of that when i was younger.

ugh, far too little sleep i need to catch up on z_z so far, March hasn't been all that unforgiving yet...but it did just start. I'm staying cautiously optimistic. and not looking forward to wednesday at all.
Distractions. I needs them. Maybe i'll trick myself into desperately writing something again XD cause shit that was distracting x__x
oatmeal_queen: (worf says shuddup)
I'm alive, I swear.

I apologize to my flist for my recent silence, but RL has been FORCING ME TO PAY ATTENTION TO IT like an angry little pet. The kind of pet that'll mess up the carpet if you don't stop what you're doing RIGHT NOW.

there are...like...a million people i need to reply to, send stuff to, talk to, and basically all around show some sign of life to...but haven't. Cause i'm a slacker. BUT I'M WORKIN ON IT. promise :3 took me awhile to get the internet set up, that's all.

the new place has heat (woo!), sanctuary, my new awesome fishy Lucifer (cheeky little fish too), and far less boxes than it did a few weeks ago. I even got my hands on an awesome cage so that i can finally start the process of adopting ratties <3
I've also been drawing again (gleee) and writing like crazy because my muse showed up at the last possible minute and i have me some Dean/Cas fic exchange to finish before the deadline this weekend x__x gah.

which, btw, is there anyone from the SPN fandom on my flist that would be interested in doing a speed beta for me? @__@ last minute, i know, and i'm not even done yet, but another set of eyes would be a tremendous help. ([livejournal.com profile] morgainlefay, i'm totally gonna be hitting you up if i can't find anyone. you rock socks, i hope you know)

A special thankyew to [livejournal.com profile] dauntdraws for the V-day present! <3 (thankyou sweetheart, you totally didn't have to. they were balloons!)

Forgive me [livejournal.com profile] eldanis! i didn't mean to tease you for this long! sorry i missed you at Katsu too <3 i do have art to share, promise.

and thus, back to writing with me. i colored a bit tonight at art jam, which was awesome and i missed it like whoah, but i have GOT to GET this DONE. x_x
(this post officially has little to no content. please leave a message at the beep)

[livejournal.com profile] happytemplar got her hands on the new Silent Hill game for the Wii, and even though I've only caught a little of it so far, it is already just creepy enough to keep me interested. well played, evil town =_= we meet yet again.
and oh, the ideas that stir. i don't write enough psychological horror. not nearly enough.

Alice in Wonderland in IMAX this weekend with the Mad Kat crew in Richmond. ROAD TRIP.
i still need to find a silly hat...sonofa...

OH HAI MARCH. *hisssssss*
oatmeal_queen: (chicks dig artists)
lol, i suck.
so my weekend basically consisted of me switching between being stunted for drawing, to being stunted for writing. i swear i can't have one with the other XP
that, and i totally marathoned myself out after the whole 45k words in a single weekend thing. yikes.
i'm not blaming that for my being sick or anything, but i think i rockem sockemed my muse around just a bit. sorry bout that darlin

thankfully, i am feeling MUCH better! woo! and am glad to be going back to work after missing most of last week and feeling like a LUMP. like a stuffed up, grumpy achy freezing lump.
still can't get myself to eat all that much tho. weird.

and i also drew things! wewt. scoured through all my netflix movies in a day along with the new Friday The 13th and the first Starship Troopers. SHUTUP, i love that movie! i can't recall the last time i went movie shopping, so that was fun :3

not that i'm insinuating that anything doodled was good at all, but it was fun and good practice.
i seem to be able to draw nothing anatomically correct atm aside from chibis tho (which is ironic, and counter productive when you think about it) but oh well.
supernatural scribbles, fyi. two of them are based off of that crazy long story i did.

here, have some art )

ok, bed for reals now. not that i haven't been sleeping recently like i was preparing for the spring, but sleep is good.

Title: Battling the Odds
Author: [livejournal.com profile] oatmeal_queen
Fandom: Supernatural
Pairing/Rating: none, R for dirty language
Characters: OFC, OMC, Dean and Sam Winchester (implied)
Word count: 4,291
Summary: Two young hunters stumble across a job with more baddies than they'd planned on killing for one evening.
Disclaimer: The universe isn't mine, I'm just playing X)

Note: This was written as a dare from my roommate who told me I had to write a small fic for once instead of the long and drawn out novels that I usually spit out. She told me to aim for 2,000 words, but I kinda overshot that by just a bit. That's ok tho, considering that this really is short compared to what I usually write.

Despite taking place in the 'Supernatural' universe, this is centered around two original hunter characters that are loosely based on my younger brother and I. (and this picture of Alice(me but not me) that was commissioned by a friend of mine)
I'd love to play with them more in the future, but it was fun enough to do this one shot just to see if I could.

Feedback would be WONDERFUL. i don't really know if there are any communities I can really post this in(found some!), but I'd love to hear what people think :3 even if you don't know the fandom it kinda works as a stand-alone outside POV too.
<3!

It was supposed to have been an easy gig )
