New Journal
sushi - sake
If you click here you'll find a brand spanking new DW journal. It will primarily be for ranting and talking about ofic, possibly posting some ofic, possibly not.

If you're interested in that, then head over! If not... then no worries.

A Serious Underworld 4 Review
And divide by zero.
It's like if the Blade movies knocked up the Underworld movies and used the Resident evil movies as a surrogate mama.

It was glorious.

I should probably start. Like. Using this journal, huh?

Miss (fic post)
*emo tear*
It has been a really long time since I actually managed to write fanfic successfully, but I did manage to work out a little gift fic for someone recently. Reposting it here.

Warnings: Smut, bad decisions, emotional stupidity, crossdressing, roleplay, awkwardness, and as always, a lack of any redeeming moral or plot. Oh, and some sappiness at the end. I don't know how that got there.

In the history of bad ideas Sasuke had had in his life, this one didn't break the top ten. Possibly not even the top twenty. He swallowed hard, accepting that this was more of a statement on his decision making skills than any kind of reassurance that this wasn't a terrible, terrible idea.Collapse )

Meme Times
And divide by zero.
askerian was just telling me how awful and empty my LJ has been lately. And you know what? It's true. I'm afraid a lot of my random babble has moved to plurk, which is kind of sad for my LJ. So to make up for that.


So, what can you do now? Well:
1) You can give me a drabble prompt for fandoms/characters or OCs that I write.
2) You can give me a doodle prompt for... oh, whatever.
3) You can give me a rant prompt, and I will rant about it. I'm pretty good at that.
4) You can ask me a question, and I'll answer it.

Artistic prompts are subject to the whims of inspiration, and are much more likely to end up unfilled in the event that I just can't think of anything. I guarantee an honest attempt. Not results.

The End Is Near
And divide by zero.
So mildmay and I were talking about how the last couple of years have been exceptionally crappy, and then magic happened.

mildmay: Maybe everything is in retrograde.
sarolynne: They're gearing up for the end of the world. :|b
mildmay: pffffft
mildmay: dammit 2012
sarolynne: /shakes fist!
sarolynne: Seriously, 2013 better either not happen, or be pink fluffy unicorns dancing on rainbows.
mildmay: ...yes
mildmay: ...
mildmay: Now I'm imagining the "end of of the world" in 2012 being like a pink fluffy unicorn invasion
sarolynne: ........
mildmay: OH SNAP
sarolynne: Everyone was prepared for zombies.
sarolynne: They didn't see the pink fluffy unicorns coming.
mildmay: No.


I feel like this should have My Little Pony icons.

Pointless, a book review rant
And divide by zero.
Alright, I'm going to be upfront. I read a book. I really, really did not like it, particularly I didn't like the end. If you do like this book, that doesn't mean I don't like you. It doesn't even necessarily mean I think you have bad taste. What it does mean is that you're taste is very different from mine, you have different priorities when reading, you have different tolerances for certain tropes or behaviors. I am bitching about these tropes, characterizations and writing, which I do, yes, think is bad. It does not, however, reflect on anyone but me, and my own ideas of what makes good writing.

That's my disclaimer.

So I read Soulless by Gail Carriger a while back. I'd heard good things. The beginning of the book had some promise, even if I didn't love it. The book over all disappointed me, and I whined a little, but I didn't hate it. Fast forward to a couple of weeks ago, I've finished all of my reading for school and I want something to read on the train going home. There's a copy of the sequel, Changeless in the school book store. Okay, why not? I'm not looking for deep reading, and maybe the author will have improved. Soulless was, as I understand it, her first novel. Those are usually a little rocky. Why not give into the impulse buy? It did have some potential, didn't it?

No. No, it didn't.

Spoilers abound. Enter with caution.Collapse )

Trying to Do a Thing
Need a smoke.
I have never done this before, but we will try playing the sentence game!

So give me a word. Or jump on someone else's word and start your own. Have fun with me, damn it. XD

NaNo Update!
And divide by zero.

I don't have much to recommend the way this has been going other than my word count and such, but you know... I'll take it. I can look at it as practice for when I get started on a good novel. Shutting up the inner editor so you can get the writing done is a good skill, and one I've needed help with lately forever.

Maybe graphs help?

NaNo On The Way
And divide by zero.
So next month is NaNo, and I'm eyeballing it, and I sort of feel like it's eyeballing me back, and I don't know that either of us is feeling very optimistic about it. I haven't been able to write anything of any particular length or completeness in quite some time.

But maybe this is the kick I need to get myself moving.

So, I think I'm going to be replicating (more or less) my success of a couple of years ago and just trying to pick something silly and punch out the word count. I'm hoping that will knock me out of this rut and get the creative juices flowing again.

Wish me luck?
