The meme:

Comment to this post, and I will list seven things I want you to talk about. They might make sense or they might be totally random.

Then post that list, with your commentary, to your journal. Other people can get lists from you, and the meme merrily perpetuates itself.

[personal profile] owlmoose tagged me with 5 questions, for that meme I am too lazy to go find and copy paste, but basically if you reply to this with a cock joke I'll ask you 5 questions and it'll be awesome, I promise.

This started off with a good discussion on FF fandom and migration and keeping fandom alive, but --- I am going to save that for another post right now, as the melatonin is kicking in. *drool*

1. Speaking of migration to Internet services, what are your thoughts on Twitter? What do you like and dislike about it? Has it changed your online interactions at all?

I got a Twitter account (@sevdrag) expecting to either hate it or not use it or, realistically, hate it and then not use it. Surprisingly, I enjoy Twitter a lot. I am really only watching mostly friends (I don't bother with celebrities or 'inspirational quotes' or any of that), and it's a fun way to share little things that aren't worth an LJ post but are still worth sharing.

I like that it's easy, that it's short, that I can get it on my phone, and that I get a surprising amount of news from it just from retweeting. Things I don't like? - it still feels silly, you know, I'm going to Tweet this, like anyone really cares how many bottles of pills Marzy knocked over today or what I am eating for lunch. Self-conscious, maybe? Although I still post dumb things on it, so, lol.

As for online interactions -- I find I communicate with people on it more than LJ some days, because it's easy to @reply multiple people or carry on a short little chat. I have become increasingly... wary? jaded? sick? of Facebook (part of the problem being that I should have segregated my real name and my crazy cosplaying and boob-grabbing online identity from the start), which is the only other place I'd think of posting one or two line 'updates'. As it gets harder to justify solid internet time at work, I like Twitter more and more.

2. What's your favorite genre of cuisine?


My brain went: Chinese! Mexican! Japanese! Thai. Thai. *dreams about Thai curry for 15 minutes* sorry, what. Chinese! ITALIAN. TACOS. BREAD. ALCOHOL. ARGH

I am going to select Mexican, because I can pretty much always eat a burrito, although I reject most Mexican beer and many Mexican desserts.

3. What's the best thing about Being a Grown-UpTM? How about the worst?


The best thing is the day you realize you are actually in charge of your own life and if you want to save up your money and time and spend a weekend in your underwear eating nothing but tunamac&cheese and playing video games, you are allowed to.

The worst thing is the day you realize what that kind of weekend costs you, in terms of how much laundry you have to do and dishes you have to wash and how you really should be going for a run and then doing like a crossword puzzle or something instead.

More realistically: I love being 100% responsible for myself. I love being actually kind of good at that (some days). I love knowing things about things, and sharing the things I know with other grown-ups. I love the lessons I've learned.

The worst part is that adulthood contains a lot of crappy lessons, like the fact that you can't do everything, or the fact that every day has something that sucks, or the fact that you never really win and life doesn't owe you much of anything. It can be easy to get trapped in a circle of woe when you're on your own.

4. What got you started on playing music?

Actually, I was almost a music major! I auditioned for a music performance program when I was applying for colleges... oh god, 10 years ago. What.

My parents love music - mum's Lutheran (meaning we sing all 20 verses of every song) and dad just loves Queen, so we were always listening to music. I started on clarinet and then switched to flute when my music teacher told me "girls don't play the drums." I played flute for years and years and got better and better, until I was first chair in the advanced audition-only wind ensemble and soloing in the orchestra pit for school musicals. I taught myself how to play piano (entirely wrong, I will point out - I am actually not very good, although I learned how to comp jazz chords so I can fake a lot of pop songs that way) until like the last year of high school when I had a year of private lessons in which my teacher realized he wasn't gonna undo any of my terrible left-hand habits and decided to teach me jazz instead. Excellent life choice.

I started playing drums a few years ago because I wanted to - have wanted to since I was in 3rd grade - and I've always had a good sense of rhythm, so once you figure out how the hands and feet go, you can manage a lot of classic rock at least.

I like music -- more specifically, I like making music. I don't really like doing it by myself; I like playing with other people, in bands.

5. You're trapped on a desert island and can only bring five books along. Which are they? (No cheating with the Kindle!)


Alright, so, instead of being lofty and noble, I'm just gonna bring my comfort reading, the books I read and re-read until the pages are all torn. So, in absolutely no order at all:

1. Sunshine by Robin McKinley*
2. Kushiel's Dart by Jacqueline Carey**
3. either Komarr or A Civil Campaign by Lois McMaster Bujold***
4. Iron Kissed or Bone Crossed by Patricia Briggs****
5. whatever the latest Dresden Files book is by Jim Butcher*****

*all time favorite comfort read, ever
**not only is it fabulous, it's long, which means it would help keep me entertained on the desert island
***I want a Miles book, but I am not sure I can pick which one -- Komarr is more interesting in general, but A Civil Campaign fills me with squee because of the dumb romance (I like Ekaterin okay), but ... hell, I might want one of the more interesting ones like Mirror Dance if I'm stuck there forever...
*****I have to keep up with the series while I am stranded!

Keep in mind, the backup version of this was 5 Robin McKinley books, I wish I were joking but I am not.

I took this from [personal profile] owlmoose because it looks interesting:

Pick a character I write, and I will give you the top five ideas/concepts/other I keep in mind while writing that character that I believe are essential to depicting them accurately.
seventhe: (FFEX: Doink!)
So I'm going to spend November posting more, probably in lieu of NaNoWriMo, because I just wrote over 7300 words in one day and basically that has proven (to me, anyway) that I'm an awesome writer enough that I don't feel like I need to do NaNo. Also I think I'm going to have two exams. SOOO eff that. I'll see, but posting daily in November is a much better backup plan.

I've seen a lot of 30-day memes going around the Circle/FList - there's one on video games, one on "tell me about yourself", one on religious beliefs, and another kind of random one, just off the top of my head - and I like all of them but wouldn't be able to choose one.

So, because I am dumb, I think I'll have more fun turning it over to you crazy people.

So here's the game:

  1. I've got a list from 1-30 here, for the 30 days in November I'll be blogging.

  2. Leave a comment with a topic you'd like to see me cover. Anything is fair game, and I mean it: things you don't know about me. Fandom opinions. My real feelings on X/Z. Rants on grad school. Talking about my job. Makeup Batman's beauty tips. My thoughts on religion. Pretty much anything that's a fair blog topic - just make sure it's something I can do something with.

  3. I'll update the list as people come up with stuff, in the order it's commented. There'll be one master list; comments on DW and LJ both count. Anybody can comment - use OpenID on my DW, or do it anonymously.

  4. Since I'm actually not arrogant enough to think 30 people will comment with great ideas (despite what you may think...!), yeah, you can definitely leave more than one suggestion. Just do me a favor and space them out a bit - wait until somebody else comments, so that I'm not doing Drakon for seven days in a row? letting someone monopolize the blog.

  5. The list will stay up until it's full.

  6. Come 01 November, I'll start with the first topic and then move on through. If I miss a day (like for Thanksgiving maybe) I'll post two the next. The end!

30 Days Of Posting )

EDIT: This meme is now full, but feel free to comment anyway -- I am enjoying this and if I have time I'm willing to keep it going!

*waits to regret this*

STOLEN FROM [ profile] wakka_luver

1) Make a list of fifteen characters first, and keep it to yourself for the moment. (That way you're not leading the questions asked to fit the characters.) DONE

2) Ask your f-list to post questions in the comments.

For example:

'One, Nine, Fifteen and Twenty-One are chosen by a prophecy to save the world from Four. Do they succeed?'
'Under what circumstances might Five and Seven fall in love?'
'Which character on the list would you most want on your side in a zombie invasion?'
'What would Two experience in Silent Hill?'
'What Pokémon would Eight have?'
'Write a drabble in which Two and Twelve FIGHT CRIME.' (...possibly not technically a question.)

3) After your f-list has asked enough questions, round them up and answer them using the fifteen characters you selected beforehand, then post them. <-- FOR TOMORROW

For the record, I have characters 1 - 15. At least three of them are gimme characters. I have mixed fandoms for added hilarity. Please post no more than 5 prompts so that I don't spend 1000 years updating this.

THIS MEME KICKS ASS. And pretty much proves that I am an F-list stalker but I wanted it so bad!

Please amuse me now that my finals are out of the way and I am up to my eyeballs in work! PLEASE!

Choose a character from a fandom that I know--video game, movie, book, tv show, etc.--and I'll answer the questions below.

1) What is your opinion of this character? If you like, explain why you like him/her. Likewise if you dislike the character.
2) Is he/she important to the general plot?
3) Can you relate to this character at all? Do they grip you emotionally?
4) How much do you like the fandom that this character comes from?
5) Do you ship this character with any other character? Or, are you particularly intrigued by their relationship with any other character(s)? (romance-wise or platonic)
6) Is there anything about the character you would change? (Personality wise, not anything pertaining to the plot.)
7) If you were in the fandom with this character, how do you see yourself interacting with him/her? (Would you get along well? Fall in love with? Dislike? Friendly rivalry? etc etc)
8) Does this character make the cut as one of your all time favorites (if you like) or most hated?
9) Would you hype up this character (if you like) or warn about (if you dislike) to someone who's new to the fandom?
10) Is this character popular with the fanbase?
seventhe: (Penelo: cute)
The rules are easy, just post 6 things that recently made you happy! Then tag 6 people and force them to post this meme on their LJs. Because it is good. Everyone needs a little happiness once in awhile.

(1) Getting a killer plotbunny that has let me kick out an excellent intro to my original fiction. Almost 4000 words so far; unedited, so it is probably ~50% crap, but it's so much better than what I originally had!

(2) Making pumpkin muffins.

(3) Having the tasty lunch meat be on sale this week. (I'm lame.)

(4) [ profile] hilldo's story about my cat's text-based adventures!! It made me laugh really, really hard, anyway.

(5) Planning for the Halloween party.

(6) Having an awesomely cute challenge idea for [ profile] cockeyed_art. I am way too excited. And will probably be doodling in class tonight.

- - -

I usually don't tag people, but feel free to steal the feel-good meme!
seventhe: (Auron: I'd hit that)

1. Comment to this post with the name of a character that I have written in fic.

2. I will comment telling you the following:
a. What initally prompted me to like the character enough to write about him/her.
b. One of his/her best traits
c. One of his/her worst traits
d. How easy/difficult I find it to write the character
e. The story/chapter/paragraph/phrase where I feel that I truly captured the character
f. My plans (if any) to write the character in the near future.
seventhe: (Laguna: Who's Your Daddy?!)
Work sucks. Things keep screwing up which, although not my fault, will come back to me eventually in the sense that I'll just keep having more things to do. Yet my lab is shut down this morning. So, I will have a fic-meme to keep myself amused.

This is the "Meme of Five", in which you give me a prompt of "Five Times ___" or "Five Things ___" and I complete it. For example, "Five Things Quistis wishes she didn't know about Squall" or "Five Times Basch and Vossler sparred". (lol as i steal my own examples XD) It can literally be five anythings: "Five spells ___", "Five thoughts ___", whatever you wish.
You are welcome to add a caveat "And One" at the end, i.e. "Five Times Zell choked on a hotdog and One Time he managed to eat it".

I will give you back: five (or six, if you tag on the ending) drabble-y snippets, which will connect into a story-ish thing. I am not feeling like long one-shots. I feel like kicking the ass of jump-starting my writing for fun. These won't be serious pieces, but hopefully they will be entertaining. If they suck I will probably just write you bad porn as a substitute!


*(but if you choose FFXII please make it a more generic prompt as my slow ass is still working its way through the game I have already pretty much spoiled myself 100% for)
