Subscription/Access Policy: Feel free to friend me and I'll probably grant access, although most of my posts will be public anyway! I'm looking to make more friends, so I'd be happy to have you, but you don't need to feel pressure to grant me access if that makes you uncomfortable.

Fannish Interests: I've had a lot of the years (shoujo manga, Harry Potter, Dragon Ball, Pokemon, Mass Effect, superhero comics), but lately I'm focusing mainly on Doctor Who, Star Wars, and Star Trek. I love a good space story! I recently decided to do a proper watch through of all of classic Doctor Who, so I'm having a lot of fun with that.

I like to post about: My journal is new, but I plan to post commentary and pictures as I make my way through Classic Who and the Big Finish audios. I'll also post about New Who, Star Wars and Star Trek, my personal life a little, and my cat a lot. I make icons occasionally.

About Me/Other Info: I'm a genderfluid (they/them prounouns), mentally ill nerd who likes being friendly and considerate. I have a lot of passion for my fandoms, although I can also be a little scatterbrained and flighty. I do my best to be consider of other people and to own up to any mistakes I make. I like to have a quiet, good time talking about science-fiction, animals (I love marmots and other related animals like squirrels), makeup, and toy collecting.

I'm looking to decrease my tumblr presence (too stressful for me), and increase my presence on other platforms such as this one.

Thanks for reading!

[personal profile] naye
One Piece celebrates its 20th anniversary today. Two decades of the same story. Twenty years of writing and drawing a chapter a week very nearly all the year around.

Can you imagine? And it's still so good. It still makes me cry on the regular.

I've been following along for more than half the series' life - since 2004. I've shared lovely hours bonding with friends over One Piece and creating inspired by One Piece. And I met my wife through a LiveJournal post on One Piece.

I wish I were in Japan to celebrate, but alas.

At least I've already had I've of my wishes come true! I've gotten to tell Odacchi 'thank you for everything' along with hundreds of other fans. So until next time... HAPPY BIRTHDAY ONE PIECE!!

It's been too hot this week. In the 90s and humid. Not a great mix. So my mood is starting to drop, a lot, especially when combined with other issues. So, I ended up taking a lot of pictures today because it tends to cheer me up, or at least calm me down a bit.

The squirrels were not loving the afternoon heat from what I could tell and I managed to snap several pics of a few lounging in the trees. I even stepped off of the porch and took some of the pics from the ground under the trees. I also snapped several pics of sparrows and one of a robin. Oh, also a dragonfly up at the top of the dead tree.

I think this is my favorite picture of the day:

There were a bunch of sparrows and a robin or two in the dead tree the other day, all at the same time. There were a lot more than I could get a pic of. It was like they were having a meeting. It didn't last very long, but it was a bit noisy.



Yesterday I was able to take a few not too blurry pics of a skunk in the yard around sundown. Picks of that and also a robin I took today under the cut... Read more... )

We’re three days ahead of schedule! If you signed up for the challenge, you should have received an email giving you details about your assignment.

Some notes (because the labels from the sign up didn’t crossover into the assignment email):

  • We have no clue where “Prompts” comes from, so just ignore that space. It’s supposed to be blank.

  • You are not limited to remixing the fandom listed in the assignment. Please stick to Arrow, Constantine, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow, Supergirl and/or Vixen. However, if you see that your remixee has written in any of these six fandoms, but it’s not listed in the assignment, feel free to take a crack at remixing that story.

  • Prompt URL is where you’ll find your remixee’s fanworks.

  • Please do not remix your remixee’s safe fanwork, WIPs, or previous remixes. Regarding WIPs, a few of the assignments include titles to posts that should be viewed as chapters of one shots, so you’re welcome to remix one of the chapters.


More modly notes: Please remember that this is an anonymous challenge. Feel free to spread the word about DC Multiversity Remix, but try not to give specifics about what you’re creating or who you’re remixing.

We’ve also created the opt-in post for the Remix Scramble. Even if you’ve signed up for the challenge itself, if you want to have your fanworks remixed to the broader public, please leave a comment on the opt-in post. The fun part about the Scramble is that anyone can participate, it’s open to all fanworks, and there are no minimum size requirements.

Have questions or comments? Contact a mod.

I finished and posted my fic that I was writing for [community profile] fan_flashworks . It's not awesome, but it is done and I did enjoy writing it, mostly.  
I did not enjoy editing it though. I hate that part. A lot.
This is probably one of the longer fics I've written if not the longest. Not that I've written tons of fic or anything.

Okay I checked...this fic at 3,478 words is 1350 words longer than my previously longest posted work. Hmmm... wacky.

Very hot and humid today. Blah. I could really do with cooler days. I find it hard to motivate myself to do much of anything when it's like this. 

Oh, the latest issue of America (America Chavez solo comic from Marvel) has her teaming up with Kate Bishop (the other Hawkeye) for the issue (and next issue to it seems!) Very cool!!!

Things we've been watching

We just finished March Comes in Like A Lion season 1 and I am so glad there's a second season coming because this show has shot to the top of my All Time Favorite list. (Which is hard to do! It's a crowded list!) It's so sweet and warm and genuine. It's a slice of life show about people who have suffered and been messed up and are dealing (or not dealing) in various ways and although there's a lot of heavy themes it has such amazing heart. Love it.

Skuld's been watching Master of None and I watch along. It's definitely hit or miss with me. The first season was fun, it has absolutely shining moments. The Thanksgiving episode with Denise coming out was powerful stuff, but the whole will they/won't they straight romance with a side of cheating is boring and hits Bad Buttons so I'm not too impressed with the second season overall.

Tour de Pharmacy (in UK: Pharmacy Road) a silly Adam Samberg HBO special docudrama thing that takes the piss out of cycling in general and the Tour the France in particular was funny. And exceedingly ridiculous. But also funny - and Daveed Diggs had a big part in it so extra love for that!

Twin Peaks: The Return continues to be a tour the force for Lynch & Frost. It's beautiful and unsettling and does things its own way for its own reasons and I adore it for that. We usually watch each episode twice, and in the hiatus after episode 8 we rewatched 1-7 again, so that's three viewings so far and I still don't get bored of it. (Frustrated, yes. Bored? No.)

And since we were on a Twin Peaks kick we finally got around to watching Mulholland Drive and. Yes. That is certainly... a film? I'm not sure what I watched, or why, but it's been a lot of fun discussing it with Skuld and reading/listening to analyses and theories. I'd actually like to rewatch it? Because while I didn't love it, I did find it a really interesting experience.

HOT FUZZ. Because we ran out of other things we were in the mood to watch and we both love this movie to bits. We put it on a random Tuesday night and were late to bed because Hot Fuzz. For all the reasons. Including, of course, the thing Edgar Wright summed up in his famous 2009 tweet:

@edgarwright Me and @simonpegg once wrote some Nicholas Angel and Danny Butterman slash fiction. It was called HOT FUZZ…(applause)

Things I've read
The Girl with Ghost Eyes (Xian Li-lin, #1)The Girl with Ghost Eyes by M.H. Boroson

Oh no! I really, really wanted to love this. And it had a bunch of ingredients I like. But... they never really came together for me. I think it's a me thing rather than a book thing, and I don't feel I can write a proper review. I mean: the books does have a lot of fascinating themes, Li-lin is an interesting character, and the world is quite vividly drawn. I don't know why it still fell flat for me.


What's next?
I've got new volumes of Vinland Saga and Princess Jellyfish manga to read, and I've got the latest Raksura and Queen's Thief books all queued up on my reader. I just need to find something that drags me back into reading, because with all the Real Life excitement recently my attention span has grown short and my anxiety looms large and it's making it hard for me to focus on words and other worlds...

Subscription/Access Policy: Friend away! I'm always looking for new friends to talk to. As for access, I grant almost everyone that subscribes to me. If I ever lock something it'll be something really personal and might be trigger-y. I will always warn if I do post something of that nature. There's no pressure to grant me access back.

Fannish Interests: Gosh, okay, I like a lot of things. But I also need to catch up on a lot of things. That's my problem.

I watch a lot of tv. Right now I'm watching shadowhunters and deciding if I want to catch up on Teen Wolf or not. My love for Scott McCall is enternal though. 

I really enjoy pokemon,  digimon,  yugioh,  sailor moon, power rangers, tf&f series, harry potter, kingdom hearts, and classic spn. all of those were my fandoms before I ever knew what fandom meant. i am casually into new doctor who but Ten was my first doctor and my favorite era. I'm always there for the companions the most though and I love bill potts so much. i love sherlock holmes adaptations but i gotta say my favorite is elementary. i'm also into low energy video games so pretty much anything nintendo and the sims. I'm a little obsessed with the sims and the fandom it has on youtube. just a little. Superheroes are cool too! I like the mcu and dcu but i haven't watched all of it yet bc reasons. Omg star wars is a big one lately too. and the new Star Trek and hopefully the new series!! as for cartoons steven universe is like the best thing that ever happened to me probably. aaaand books!! gosh do i hope to actually start to read books. The last full thing I read that wasn't fanfiction was the hunger games.

sp in summary i love anything cheesy, ridiculous, and about friendship :D 

I Like To Post About: honestly? cute animals. cats especially. i'll post about all the things i care about and I might  do reaction posts to a show or movie etc. I hope to at least post fic or a rec or just journaling in general! I'm trying to find my place in dreamwidth after being on tumblr for so long now. 

About Me/Other Info: I'm an ace nonbinary (she/they pronouns) lesbian. I'm autistic, mentally ill, and have chronic pain & illness. I'm infp, capricorn, and a hufflepuff. 

hurt/comfort is my whole life. It's like my one true kink. I love reading it, writing it, having discussions about it, reading meta about, you get it. It's my jam. 

I'll mostly comment on stuff for a while probably. I have a strict rule that is if I see an entry/read a fic/etc I comment on it. <3

I finished the fic I've been working on for fan_flashworks. It was like pulling teeth at the end. Hot and humid doesn't make for the best writing days really. Especially without an air-conditioner. But I got it done. Now I have tomorrow and the early part of Thursday to make it suck less so I can post it in time.

It ended up being longer than I thought it would be. The first draft is about 3,500 words.
