"...I chose the impossible. I chose... Rapture. A city where the artist would not fear the censor. Where the scientist would not be bound by petty morality. Where the great would not be constrained by the small. And with the sweat of your brow, Rapture can become your city as well."
―Andrew Ryan

You suddenly jolt awake, a crackle of electricity running over your body as you try to clear your vision and the thumping in your head. You feel terrible--the worst you have in a long time--and it's almost too much to lift your head, but you somehow find the strength just as your vision clears. Your hand's pressing up against the fogged glass you didn't realise you were behind before it's suddenly lifted up, your container spitting you rather unceremoniously out onto the ground. It takes you a moment to compose yourself, the distinct crackling of a record player greeting you as you lay there, a huge wall of water stretching up to the ceiling, sea life swimming past the window. You look around and realise you're in an abandoned arrivals hall, suitcases, broken glass, tickets and leaflets littering the floor as if the people had to suddenly evacuate. Lavish and extravagant architecture ranging from the 20's to the 50's lays in crumbling decay and the smell of rusting metal and damp hits you suddenly as you look around, the flashing of neon signs dimly flitting on and off down a corridor. Somewhere above you a tanoy chimes in, and a cheerful woman crackles over the pa system.
"Welcome to Rapture! Please mind your step and please feel free to visit our information booths to purchase any information and city maps that you may need. And remember! Opportunity awaits!"

The room goes quiet, only the crackling of the ambience music and the uncomfortable creaking of metal straining from the pressure all around you as you explore. Any strength or powers that you might've had in your own world seem to be out of reach--try as you might, you feel too drained and disoriented to use them. The place seems to be devoid of all life, but you just can't shake the feeling that you're very much not alone.

.. yup.

Tomorrow I leave the lovely [livejournal.com profile] somnomania's house, and head back into the city to stay with [livejournal.com profile] artgasming. I'll be getting a cellphone at some point today but it wont have texting (since you have to pay extra monthly for that? wtf america?) but i'll be dishing out the number to people who need it! /o/ ALSO I SEEM TO HAVE GOTTEN SICK FROM THE PLANE 8( That or it's crazy allergies since Kate has a billion animals who I love rubbing in my face because omg so cute, which being allergic to cats, probably isn't a good idea. But I feel like my tonsils are the size of bowling balls and it hurts to swallow 8( I KNEW i would get sick on the plane. I always do. Oh well. I don't think I've recovered from the jetlag yet either, but I'm working on it! I'm going to be so confused when I have to take off another three hours for LA. My body won't know what to do with itself. orz

I got back to uni today after spending part of the day with the lovely [livejournal.com profile] ormery and [livejournal.com profile] countersparking. It's not so lovely that I have a 12 week project and an essay to do in 3 weeks, BUT I ALWAYS MANAGE IT. My lectures start up again tomorrow, and that teacher that everyone thinks is a useless waste of space has taken a leave of absence, so we get to be taught by my favourite lecturer, which I'm totally scyhed about. She's such an inspiration, and totally on my wavelength, and doesn't use long words to make herself sound fancy.

Just three more weeks and then I can have summer! And next week I get to book my final plane tickets for my American Adventure, and then all I have to pay is for things when I'm actually out there. Omg I am so excited.

ALSO my parents gave me an early birthday present yesterday since I won't be home for my 21st (but I'm hopefully going to have a guitar hero evening with cake /stares at [livejournal.com profile] hikaridonya) and it's that Flip Cam that I wanted! So now I can vlog my way around America. FUUUUUCK YES. It's such a cute little camera and so light! I can see why it's popular with the vlogging community.

It's going to be such a great summer, I can feel it :D

Also why is pokemon so addicting again omg I need to go cold turkey

First off, HALLO to the new people on my flist from the friending meme! I really should have an introduction post thing for when I do add people from those memes, like Oliver 8| BUT IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT ME FEEL FREE TO ASK.

There are a couple of things I'm covering in this. Firstly, is AIM working for anyone else? This morning it's not letting me log on via AIM or Meebo, so I'm just checking it's everyone's AIM and not just me @@; AIM has kind of been a fail lately, so I'm hoping it's not just me 8|a;

SECONDLY, I posted icons over at [livejournal.com profile] chaicons last night~! Pokemon ones mostly, but I'm getting together a Young Avengers post. I'm a little hesitant with it though, since I decided it would be a good idea to try iconning the issues from the beginning, so a lot of the icons I made have been made a billion times. I don't know, I have like 80 of them, so it seems a waste not to post them. SHOULD I? I caved :|


I drew some things )
DIS IS MY Lanturn, Lumos, as a human. I'm probs going to do this with all of my electric team because I enjoyed designing her and I might take some commissions if people are interested in chibi gijinka (or just chibi/pokemon/regular commissions in general) since I have no money for my American Adventure yet. WOULD ANYONE BE INTERESTED? ;A;

LASTLY, I get to go home on Friday. Omg I haven't been home since Christmas and I miss my family so much 8( But before then, I have to do a fuckton of pre-production work for the film I'm working on. Like literally. I have so much work that I've been stressed pretty much all the time, and since my sleeping patterns have decided to screw up again, I'm not getting much sleep either. YAYYY. But this time on friday I'll be on a train, so I have something to look forward to at least *___* BUT YEAH I might be a bit scarce till then because oh my god.

The How's My Driving? Meme

If you could be so kind~?

I got back to Wales pretty much okay, mostly because I had to change my ticket to two days before I'd originally wanted to be heading back. This is cause we were forecast over 20cms of snow over the weekend, and that much snow would've ground the trains to a halt and I would've been stranded. Even when I left it was a blizzard, and Dad drove me down to the station and ended up abandoning his car and walking home @_@ I'm still majorly confused England. Why so much snow!

Also! Being Human started up last night! Not really spoilers but me talking about the tone of the show )

I'm now going to spend the rest of the week catching up on Uni work and trying to figure out how to makes meals using only rice and peas. At least till my loan comes in and I can buy some food.

The How's My Driving? Meme

Almost finished with my 2D stuff. Almost. Well the rough anyways. I've sort of come to the conclusion that I'm not going to have the whole thing finished in time for tomorrow. No way in hell. So I'm going to finish up all the rough, scan everything and try and colour at least one or two of the scenes on flash, to give my tutor an idea of what it's going to be like once completed since the official hand-in has shifted back to after Christmas break. He's still going to be hecka disappointed in me, but from my other classmates have said I'm not all that worried. We're all in the same boat. I mean, one of them is doing a lip synch exercise and they've not even recorded the speech yet. Idek how she timed her animation.

Made home made spaghetti bolognese last night and there was loads let over so I'm going to be using it in a lasagna tonight :D It was so tasty! ONLY FIVE DAYS TILL I CAN GO HOME ;___;

Update on my animation: I should've finished all the rough by Wednesday, but that never happened because I've been really sick all this week. Figures. I'm not sure if I'm going to finish this in time, but I've also found out that the deadline hasn't actually been moved. It's still the 15th of January, but the teacher wants it all finished by the 15th of December. I already know one of our group isn't handing anything in @___@ But even if I don't finish it in time for next week, hopefully I'll be able to finish it over Christmas if I get my essay out of the way quickly. Of course, this is only a backup plan, in case I don't finish. I really want to finish 8|a

I've got two and a bit scenes to finish, both of which are sort of easy (the little bit isn't as much) but then I can go linetest everything and make sure it works. It better work. Or I'm going to be crying in frustration again, derp. And then it's onto lineart and colouring, then editing. I have no idea if I'm putting sound in @____@ I have no time! And then when I finish this animation, I have to move onto another one. Thankfully I have some sort of idea what i'm going to do (possibly watercolour Rorschach ink blots reacting to different noises) so it's not a complete lost cause. I'm just worried because I haven't done any of the research, and the official hand-in for that is before christmas. Something tells me I'm going to give up with my 2D and work on this other project this weekend :x

Wish me luck guys

Edit: ALSO! Does anyone who uses GPX Plus know what the hell the mystery counter is for? It's driving me insane not knowing.

the SUPER POWER meme !

In other news, I have renamed my icon community ([livejournal.com profile] chaicons) because the old name was bugging me a lot. I spruced, made it look pretty and posted some Stock, Pokemon and Up icons in celebration. And of course, whilst I was remodeling the layout, I somehow deleted mine. And didn't realize until all the codes for my old layout were unrecoverable. YAY. B|

Thankfully I managed to find the base layout that I'd originally used and quickly remade it (quickly being like, 2 hours of coding), but it's not the same. I think I'm going to have to completely remake it with a different theme because I don't like it atm. I'm overdue for a new layout anyways. Sob.

Anyways, it would be awesome if you could all check out [livejournal.com profile] chaicons! If you have an icon community yourself, I'm taking affiliates now :) regardless of the fact that I'm not popular enough for them to matter So if you'd like to affiliate, please give me a heads up :D

Out of the internet, I have so much work to be doing but I'm not doing it. I have a problem with distraction lately (...as you can probably tell) and it's just so hard to actually sit down and do work. Especially now that my timetable has been reconfigured I only have to go in on Thursdays and Fridays. Derp. I'm sure it'll improve, since I've got a deadline coming up... but I'd rather actually sleep than work on my Dinosaur animation 8(

Someone give me a kick pls.

3. Other people can then comment to you and make their own posts.
4. This will create a never-ending cycle of icon glee.

Also, I posted some more Runaways icons at my graphics comm as well as some Pet Avengers one (FROG THOR GUYS. FROG. THOR.) so go check them out if you've got a sec (: I'm pretty proud of them! (They are kind of spoilerific though, so be warned!)

I think after I finish my school project, I'm going to go back and rework some of my old Kingdom Hearts icons and repost the Axel ones I took down since now that I've worked out a good system for iconning, I look back on those and CRINGE. Also I think I'm going to make some Young Avengers ones and some Marvel Adventures ones methinks. SO watch this space!
