SO I'M BACK IN WALES YET AGAIN. After the explosions with my parents I'm sort of glad I left (because the night before I left my aunt decided it was HER turn to make me feel like a worthless piece of lazy ass which is always fun) even though it means the dawning of a new year and the fact that I'm supposed to be graduating in uhhhh 5 months? AHAHA. Fuck my life.

My room is still balls cold, and I have to resort to wearing gloves when I'm working up here on stuff. I actually used the heater for the first time in ages because oh my god I was so fucking cold under a winter duvet and a blanket and hats and gloves and socks and a kigu that I needed the extra warmth.



YOUNG AVENGERS CHILDREN'S CRUSADE ISSUE 4 CAME OUT and I was very disappoint. Come on Heinburg, Tommy is not 15, and I know you are fixing that but god. Way to make me feel skeevy about playing him for a second there fdjknhfjknfhd. Other than the horrifying lack of Tommy in that issue, I liked it a lot! Did not expect the ending and was all :O when it happened and blah blah blah everyone who this matters too is already all over this. HERP. Trust me for being late to the flail party over LJ but I assure you much flailing was done over twitter (which I have been using a lot more recently I think I am addicted) and AIM.

ALSO [livejournal.com profile] virtualdon gave me my late Christmas present, which is the Axel Formation Arts figure that is only available in Japan and I flipped out. I put him together straight away and oh my god I love his face so fucking much I am actually beside myself. I also got my presents from [livejournal.com profile] batfowl (THANK YOU SWEETIE!) She sent me a pretty bracelet and Cupcake rice paper toppers with fucking Shiba Inu puppies on them. They will be the most adorable cupcakes I will ever create I don't even.

And idk if I said this before but my flat mates pooled together and got me a Raikou plushie AND HE IS SO CUTE I DON'T EVEN??? I am forming an electric type plushie ARMY (I have a Jolteon, Ampharos, Elekid, Rotom and Raikou now :D Blitzle and Emonga are on the LIST as well as Luxray if I could ever fucking find it for less than a billion dollars) but I am glad in the knowledge that I'll never be as bad as this even though I am super jealous of like pretty much everything she owns.

Oh I just realised I am rambling. HERP.

ONE LAST THING I GUESS, I was saved today by my tutors who decided to extend the dissertation draft final for another 10 days, as I was really starting to work myself up into a state over the fact that I didn't do as much work over Christmas as I thought I would've. I'm going to aim to try and finish it this week and get a couple people to read it and I'm aiming to do the full 8,000 words to make it easier when the deadline comes around again. And we have deadlines in February and I have to do so much work that I'm thinking about setting up a 9-5 work regime to see if I can actually motivate myself every day to do SOMETHING. Wish me and my procrastinator of a brain luck guys.

It's going to be a bumpy year BUT HOPEFULLY it'll all be worth it in the end and I'll never have to write another fucking essay or use Harvard referencing ever fucking again. >:(

also I promise I wrote this journal not drunk even though it totally seems like I am.
purapea: (ya; tommy; wiggly fingers)
SORRY FOR THE DOUBLE POST I should get a tumblr specifically for posting random crap or something.

So my mom puts up these 'festive' cards in or toilet every Christmas (we have a thing in the downstairs one where we put up funny birthday cards on the walls to amuse people idk???) and we've had the same ones for a long time. Now, I've seen all these before, but this one literally made me crack up so bad because it now has a SUITABLE REFERENCE and I'd never associated it with Young Avengers before. But god it is the funniest thing to me now.

Here is a picture of the card:

I know everyone's probably been getting this on their flists, but please--do not repost anything onto Twitter or Facebook from my journal without my permission. Till they give us a disable option I'm TRUSTING YOU ALL. OKAY? GOOD. (Seriously though, LJ can go fuck itself with that. We don't want to post things everywhere we are capable of opening new tabs if we want to and it's going to make internet wank a whole new level of horrific if RL social networking is involved. Something tells me you didn't think this through.)

So it’s been a while since I updated this, and in the interim I went to SDCC, left the lovely [livejournal.com profile] lynxgriffin’s company and flew back to JFK, spent the night in an airport and then flew to Bermuda, which is where I am now. I’m going to write a report on the con, SO THIS ENTRY IS PROBABLY GOING TO BE VERY LONG WINDED as it’s way overdue, but I shall try and keep it short!

But this picture basically summarizes my trip to San Diego:

There was a big Marvel Wall. The Young Avengers had a tiny space to themselves (Cassie and Vision were futher up and Billy WAS NO WHERE TO BE SEEN 8C), and it must have been FATE OR SOMETHING BECAUSE TOMMY WAS THE ONE WHO WAS GROUND LEVEL. FUCK YES I WAS SO HAPPY I DON'T EVEN.

HERE IS WHAT WE DID. If you’ve already read [livejournal.com profile] lynxgriffin’s report, it’s going to be pretty similar since we spent the majority of the weekend together except you get a running commentary by me, aren’t you lucky. :D






So much for keeping that short, uh.

Oh man though, IT WAS SUCH A GOOD EXPERIENCE! I really want to go again next year, this time armed with business cards and portfolios I think, since I had a couple of people asking for my card and I didn’t have any with me. Derp. I met so many amazing people and had SUCH A GOOD TIME DKJNF ;____;

So about a day after we get back from comic con, I was flying out of Cali and back to JFK to finish my American Leg of this trip. I cannot express how much fun it’s been. I’ve met so many people I never thought I’d have the chance to meet, and I am so appreciative of all the people who housed me and came to see me. I love you all and I hope if you’re ever my side of the world I can return the favour. Seriously thank you all so much <3 <3

Spending the night in JFK was pretty uneventful. I bought a redbull and downed it, and stayed in the baggage collection lobby. The only working outlet was in a Dunkin Donuts, and the people behind the counter were kind enough to let me sit in the store on the floor all night. Of course, the only working outlet had to be RIGHT NEXT TO THE FRIDGE so I was fucking FREEZING all night. My will to be warm was overridden by my will to have internet though. Seriously, THIS IS WHERE I WAS SITTING FOR ABOUT 7 HOURS OMFG.

BUT NOW I AM IN BERMUDA doing family things and working my way through the entire Temeraire series (Currently on book three, already have a Maximus muse FUCK). I’ve had a bit of a turbulent time here, but that’s saved for another journal because I’d rather keep this one as upbeat as I felt coming back from comic con. Needless to say, I can’t wait till I get to go home on the 15th. I miss all my English dudes and I want to sleep in my own bed!

I just booked the final internal flights for my American Adventure trip.


And because of Children's Crusade coming out THAT MONTH THAT SDCC is happening, there's a high possibility that there's going to be a panel about it. Or at least some of the contributors milling around at the booth so I can get books signed.

AND I GET TO STAY WITH THE LOVELY [livejournal.com profile] somnomania, [livejournal.com profile] artgasming AND [livejournal.com profile] lynxgriffin AND MEET PEOPLE ON MY FLIST AND GO TO DISNEY LAND AND AMERICA


Sorry, it's kind of only just sunk in that it's happening and I'm getting so fucking excited you have no idea. And mildly terrified too.

purapea: (up; carl; disgruntled; no)
Man, I love my 2D animation teacher, but he doesn't half like to work us to the bone. I'm figuring that he's thinking 'it's for their own good because third year is going to slaughter them' but cutting a deadline by three weeks is not nice. And it's not fair either since, you know. We have a fuckton of work to do, and 3D and stop-motion don't have much at all and they still have till after Christmas to hand everything in. RRRFHHN.

On top of that, the deadline coincides with ANOTHER project, which we were originally doing in groups, till one of the group decided to do things on her own. Which is fair, but now me and [livejournal.com profile] silverbrumby123 are actually fucked because there is no way we can do two full colour with sound, 1-2 minute animations in a week and a half. Though, I always say this and I always somehow do it. I'll just become a sparkly vampire and not sleep. Needless to say, I'll probably be scarce till after the projects are done. @_@

It's just frustrating because this is all going on when I'm sick, so I've not been motivated to work because I can't get out of bed. The nurses have no idea what's wrong with me, so I'm having blood tests in a couple of weeks to see if they can work it out, but it's nothing too major. It's the same thing I was dealing with last year around this time, (that no matter how much sleep I get I'm constantly tired thing) but it was connected to depression last time, and I know I'm not depressed. Hell, if it wasn't for all stress with the animation stuff, I'd be hecka happy. Not to say that I'm not, just the stress sometimes gets to you. So it's not depression. It might be anemia or a thyroid problem or something connected to PCOS, but we honestly wont know till I get bloods done. YAY. Blood tests are my favorite thing ever. Can you hear my sarcasm.

Other than those stuff, I've actually.. got practically all my Christmas shopping done. Which is insane since I usually leave it till the last minute. BUT THIS YEAR I'VE LIKE, ALREADY WRAPPED EVERYTHING. I'm sort of surprised at myself. Now if only I could get myself to be like that about work. Derp.

Anyways, enough ranting, here, have Tommy and Billy as Pokemon:


aaaaaa why

So today I got the most horrifically depressing idea for a Young Avengers fanfiction, and I have decided to share my woe.

At dinner tonight, we were watching ER, and it was about this kid who went to the movies and bicycled home with his friends, but got run over before he got home. He went into a coma and his grandmother had to decide whether to take him off of life support and let him go because he was brain dead, or to keep him on life support.

The kids name was Billy.

Which of course made me think that him being in 616!Earth was all a coma induced dream. And the fic would switch from him doing missions on the team, having fun and meeting teddy and falling in love and shit and the grandmother trying to come to terms with her decision, trying to tell herself that when she squeezed his hand it was just a spinal reflex, not him squeezing back. Eventually, she'll turn the life support off, which will either make Billy's dream fade away and he'd die in the 616!world too, or he'd be trapped there.

I almost cried as I was thinking it up.

But uh, yeah. I'm a terrible person.

/adds it to her fic-that-needs-to-be-written-but-probably-never-will list.

In other news I've started watching Supernatural as LivingTV started it from the first season, and though I missed the first episode I'm rather enjoying it so far! Dean is so cute, I want to squish his face. I'm also happier that Cap might be played by Dean's actor in the avengers film. I think he'd make a cute Cap.

Not much has been going on in the past couple of days, apart from me continually procrastinating from doing that school project thats in for the 13th. I know what I want to do and how I'm gonna do it I just have no motivation to do it 8( I'd much rather make icons of Eli or Thorg or Jaime which is always the way when you have something that NEEDS TO BE DONE. You have inspiriation for something else, and then when you finish the thing you had to do, the other stuff doesn't seem as inspiring anymore. SIGH. I even want to write Tommy fic, and coming from me that's a big thing! I never write fic. Ever. IT INTIMIDATES ME FAR TOO MUCH. But... I still want to because it's anything but my project 8|a; I have so much to do before I go to Wales too on Monday. Aaaaaa.

Anyways, here, have some pokemon drawings (i've seriously been into drawing ghost types lately wtf) and a drawing of Billy from a band!Au fic:

All I seem to be posting lately are memes. I guess that tells you how exhausted I've been over the past couple days. Been hit with this weird bug thing where I'm all dizzy and headachey and nauseated but still doing things like going to work and getting dragged around town with my sister looking for dresses to wear to my cousins wedding this weekend and rainbow things to take to Gay Pride which I'm also going to on Saturday. Hopefully I'll be better before then because I don't want to throw up :<




Teddy: 'William and I.'
Tommy: 'I'm really attracted to her.'

purapea: ([ kh ] spoilers)
Fuuuuck 358/2 is out in Japan. Someone posted a video of them playing it on youtube. I watched about 10 seconds of it before I had to close the window ;__;

I'm going to try my hardest not to be spoiled you guys, and for me thats saying something since I usually don't give a shit about spoilers. But when Axel and Roxas are involved, I'd rather be kept in the dark till I can play the game for myself. I'm not going to download emulators either, since I want to play it in English (and I'm pretty sure the emulators don't have translations? though I could be wrong) and stuff.

So, if my flist could be careful about what they post in regard to the game I would be really grateful. It's not that hard to put things under a cut is it, or at least warn people that spoilers follow? I just really don't want to be spoiled 8( I do have a feeling this request will be somewhat redundant because hopefully people are already doing this but you never know
So, please and thank you!

I wish the next issue of Dark Reign Young Avengers would hurry up and be released already. I want Tommy to have lines in ANYTHING EVER.. and also so I can icon the fuck out of it >_> PLUS MELTER BAWW I WANT TO HUG HIM.
purapea: ([ misc ] its like a comic book)
Wow, my day has seriously been comic book oriented.

First I saw the Wolverine movie which I did enjoy! I laughed when he screamed HRRRRROOUUGHHHH instead of going NOOOOOOO both times, and my friends had NO IDEA WHY I WAS LOLING. Overall I thought some of the special effects were a bit lame and that it needed more Gambit with french accent (I wasn't impressed to begin with but he grew on me), more speaking Pietro :|, more cameos, more dramatic explosions, more HRRRRROOOUUUUGHHHHHH and less blob and less DIAMONDS ARE EMMA'S BEST FRIEND. I bet I'll start complaining about it more when I start reading the Deadpool that [livejournal.com profile] otilu gave me, since I'm pretty sure he is meant to have a mouth 8| (Also I didn't know that Sabretooth was Logan's brother but I'm assuming this is either true or something they did for the movie?) But I did enjoy it :3

Then I went to forbidden planet and bought some Runaways Trades and the Young Avengers Presents trade (SHUTUP SQUEAK I NEEDED IT AND I'M TOTALLY GOING TO NEVER READ TEDDY'S ONE ;A;) and got into a conversation about Tommy with one of the dudes looking at the other trades c: THEN we went on an epic book store trek and I got two +Anima books that I was missing (still need 10 but I haven't read 9 so!) and I considered buying the Umbrella Academy but decided against it and THEN THEN we got cheap DVDs (FERN GULLY 8D and The Science of Sleep) and went to wagamama's for lunch/dinner where I drew little wolverines going HRRRRRROOOUGHHH.

I had a good day 8)

I was gonna pick up my issue of Runaways from the post office, Squeak, but it was closed when I got back for 'Unforeseen Reasons' 8(

I'm gonna take a nap now, since I've got to sort out what I'm doing for that presentation tomorrow with my friends later and I'm exhausted. @_@
