The clock is ticking steadily on...  
Just to let everyone know, I'll probably be making myself a lot more scarce for the next couple weeks. I'm moving back to college this weekend and I'm ridiculously far behind on my packing, and once I get there I'm going to be spending time with the people I haven't seen all summer, so I might not be on. (Plus, I'm not sure if I'll be able to connect to a secure router until I get to my new apartment, and if that's the case then no LJ for me. :S ) Reading comments/entries isn't the problem-- I'm a really fast reader-- it's just responding. So I'm still reading your all's stuff, even if I'm not making myself noticed. :) (And to sakura_no_mi  and scifigeek17 , I'll try to keep up with our respective RPs so we don't get too far behind.)

Because I can't get enough of these things, have a meme or two! :D

From tequilafish7 :

+ Anyone who looks at this entry has to post this meme and their current wallpaper on their LiveJournal.
+ Explain in five sentences why you're using that wallpaper!
+ Don't change your wallpaper before doing this! The point is to see what you had on.

(Identifying info/pictures are blurred out, which is why it looks odd in places.)

This has to be one of my favorite pics EVER. It's a promo pic for the USA show White Collar (I'm serious, this is actually a genuine promo), with Tim Dekay playing Peter Burke on the left and Matt Bomer playing Neal Caffrey on the right. You can always tell my current fandom by what's on my desktop, and when it came time to choose something for WC this was an obvious choice. It's just so slashy-- Peter with his arm over Neal's shoulder, and the way his hand is hanging at his side is almost like he's about to touch Neal, and he's got such a dominant posture, and Neal's just got this grin and smug expression like "Oh, yeah, I'm getting some of this".

I also have a story about this one. My sister knows that I'm into fandom and can get quite obsessed about my shows, but doesn't know exactly what I do. I had this wallpaper up for two or three weeks before she really noticed it, and this is the conversation that followed.

Her: Did you notice that?
Me: What?
Her: The way he's leaning over him like... *makes a vague motion with her hand*
Me: Yeah. *can't suppress a smile*
Her:... is that why you got it? *face looks something like O.O*
Me: Well, there's the pretty.
Her: *obviously skeptical*
Me: Okay, that might be why I got it.
Her: *shaking head with affectionate exasperation, but also laughing* That's all you had to say.

Ah, I love tarnishing a little piece of someone's innocence. XD

From psychedelicammo :

- Leave a comment saying "What's up?!"
- I'll ask you five questions to satisfy my curiosity.
- Update your journal with the answers
to your questions.
- Include this explanation and offer to ask other people questions.

1. Which do you prefer, coffee or tea?

Overall, coffee. I'll freely admit that I'm a Starbucks junkie. XD Give me my caramel light frappe in the summer and my pumpkin spice latte in the winter and I'm a happy girl. But I did grow up in the South, so I also love a cold glass of sugary, almost sickly sweet tea.

2. What's your favorite band/musical artist?

I absolutely adore Evanescence. I know they get a bad rap as an emo band for thirteen year olds, but I love the harmonies and the tones that are in their songs, and Amy Lee is gorgeous and has an amazing voice. (Side note: they might be coming out with a new album within the next year! SO EXCITED.)

3. If you could go on vacation anywhere in the world, where would you go?

New Zealand. I don't even have to think on this one. I know it sounds kind of dorky, but I've wanted to visit ever since I saw the first LOTR movie in theaters when I was 11. It just seems so beautiful, and I've read a bit about the culture and it sounds fascinating. It's at the top of my bucket list to visit, and I hope to do that after I get my undergrad degree. :)

4. Who would play you in the movie version of your life?

Ooh, I don't know. I've never really thought about that-- my life is kind of boring, actually. But I've been told that I look like Alison Sweeney, so maybe her? (Except it would have to take place in the future, because she's fourteen years older than me, lol.)

5. What's the crowning jewel of your fanfiction bibliography? What piece are you most proud of?

This is really difficult, because I'm nowhere near as prolific as I used to be. (It's a long story.) Since the days when I wrote the most, I've grown a lot as a writer, and a lot of my old fics make me cringe now. If I had to look within the last couple years, I would have to say my Petrellicest fic Stranger Danger. (God, ignore the cheesy pun. It seemed like a good idea at the time. *headdesk*) It was the first fic I'd ever written for an anonymous meme, plus the first fic that had more than "fade-to-black" sexual content. (Plus I got offered a firstborn child by a reader, so I thought that bumped it up a few spots on the list. ;)

If anyone wants some questions, let me know!

Good luck with the packing and moving and finding secure internet!

I LOVE that picture, omgggg. I hadn't seen that one before. I also adore the one of Elizabeth and Peter, and then Neal is handcuffed to Peter by one hand and standing off to the side a bit. I'm sure you've seen it.
UNNNFFFF, I didn't like handcuffs so much until this show happened. LOL.


Ah, I love tarnishing a little piece of someone's innocence. XD
Hahaha, yesss. lmao.

Thanks! I'm hoping it won't take as long as I think it will, but I'm planning for everything. :)

YESSSS. I LOVE that picture. That's my OT3 pic, and I had that one as a wallpaper for awhile too.

I didn't like handcuffs so much until this show happened.

LOL, I know! Before it was like "Oh, okay, they're kinda cool", but now my expression constantly seems stuck at something like this: *_* And OMG, that picture. I swear, I think Tim ships Neal and Peter. Have you seen his comments in an interview or two? They're so adorably slashy. <3

Good luck with the move back to school! I hope you can still find the time for LJ once everything settles down :)

That picture just screams wall!sex!! Hehe. I haven't had a chance to start watching White Collar yet, but I so want to. I'm getting caught up watching Dexter... have you ever seen that show? It's so creepily awesome.

Oh and Alison Sweeney! She and Jensen Ackles played twins when they were on Days of Our Lives, hee!
aidennestormaidennestorm on August 11th, 2010 11:11 am (UTC)
Thanks!! :D I don't think that should be too difficult, but I just need to fit it into my schedule so I don't waste time, and I haven't started planning that yet.

That picture just screams wall!sex!!

That was my first thought EXACTLY. You know the scene in our RP where Nathan corners Peter outside the bar, right before their first kiss? This is pretty much exactly what I was thinking of, except more obvious sexytiemz, of course. XD

Because I'm dense I didn't realize that I hadn't answered your question until now. *facepalm* No, I haven't watched Dexter, but I think I would like it-- I seem to have a thing for attractive, (borderline) psychotic older men on my TV screen, so I think I might enjoy it, LOL.
Sakurasakura_no_mi on August 13th, 2010 05:18 am (UTC)
Oh haha, that's okay. Yeah, you should totally watch Dexter when you have a chance, especially if borderline psychotic is your thing :D

Haha, thanks. :D
